WOKE ruined Russia in the past, and now it is doing it in America
The Marxist 1917 Revolution in Russia was a result of a WOKE-type uprising that transformed Russia into the Totalitarian Soviet Union which was murdering the traditional Russian virtues. The death of traditional Russian virtues led to the death of the country itself. On the ruins of the murderous Soviet Union, a new Russia was born that remembers the dangers of the WOKE-type movements. Now the new Russia is preventing any WOKE-type movements from emerging there.
That is why the Russian majority cannot understand why we in America do not see the dangers of this movement the only goal of which is to ruin the founding virtues of the nation and replace them by the totalitarian virtues that transforms the nation to a GULAG state.
From the news-media:
PUTIN SLAMS AMERICA’S WOKE CULTURE…’IT DESTROYS VALUES’
Millions of Americans are troubled tremendously by the wave of wokeness washing across the United States. This radical movement is trying to cancel every idea or thing it disagrees with. The woke culture is trying to cancel America as a democracy.
The evidence is so clear, even a socialist dictator strongly criticizes the ideology. Russian President Vladimir Putin believes that the far-left progressive woke culture is killing the Western world.
Putin equates this wave of political wokeness to be a mirror reflection of what transpired over a century ago during the Russian Revolution. The Russian President spoke at the 18th annual meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club in Sochi.
|His translated speech was uploaded to Russia’s governmental website. He pointed out two critical parts of the woke culture that troubled him. Putin believes there is an imbalanced action toward minorities that works to block out sections of true history.
He also denounced the push to erase traditional values by changing family names. Putin believes that the Western world can do whatever they want, but his Russia will not subscribe to these radical ideologies.
Making direct comparisons to the 1917 Russian Revolution, Putin said, “Incidentally, the Bolsheviks were absolutely intolerant of other opinions, different from their own”. This reflects the intolerance of the woke culture towards anyone who voices a different viewpoint.
Putin went on to strongly criticize the level of censorship exercised by wokeness. He feels it’s a travesty that such literary geniuses as Shakespeare are no longer taught in schools because supposedly they “did not understand the importance of gender or race”.
Putin pointed out how radical leftists in Hollywood have become more rigid than the Department of Propaganda in his own former Soviet Union. He cautioned that wokeness wants to cancel the concept of men and women, something that will shred society.
By erasing the family model, Putin feels parents will be pushed aside, “and make the child take these decisions that can destroy their lives”. Wokeness talks as if they are trying to improve America. In the words of a man who has direct experience with a revolutionary cancel culture, wokeness will not improve the United States, it will destroy it.
