The word 'woke' is now used in a pejorative way. Sadly, some conservative-fringe speakers use the word to evoke the idea of that people have false beliefs that conflict with their own. The use of the word began in African-American populations where being 'woke' meant to be aware of the systemic danger you are in just from being a racial minority with little power.
"Woke" is now defined in the Merriam-Webster dictionary as "aware of and actively attentive to important facts and issues (especially issues of racial and social justice)," and is regarded as a U.S. slang term. It originated in African-American English and gained more widespread use beginning in 2014 as part of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Since 'woke' seems the proper way to be in the modern world, the question becomes: "Why is the state of being aware of the facts and issues be something that anti-liberal personalities condemn?"
The reason is that anti-liberals foster lies and mistruths about their opponents. In its contemporary use, "woke" means social awareness, being alert to social issues, racism, discrimination and injustice. The anti-liberals add false goals to "wokeness" such as: dissolving the nuclear family, abolishing capitalism, eliminating religion, re-writing our constitution and raising children gender neutral.
The right-wing fringe now assigns a false ideology to "wokeness". They claim that that 'woke' means having certain far-left views regarding social-and racial-justice and believing that any who disagree are under the thought control of the oppressive capitalist system.
The idea that all who do not believe the 'woke' ideology are subject to capitalist mind control (“asleep”) is central.
What are these false ideas about "Woke Views Social Justice?"
Is any of this true? There is a strong power hierarchy of racial/ethnic groups. For centuries whites have been at the top and African-and Native-Americans at the bottom. There is a power hierarchy of biological sex and sexual preferences. Even more insidious is the idea that 'woke' people want to invert this power hierarchy. "Inverting the power hierarchy means the least powerful identity is given the most prestige and respect in woke culture. But lack of power is demonstrated by oppression, which means victimization. So, in practice, greater victimization means you deserve more respect. In other words, you have higher status in the woke community."
"This causes the woke to compete for status by proving their victimhood. And since victims are automatically seen as high status and virtuous, venerating victims also increases your own status. Hence woke culture is fundamentally a status culture based on victimhood." [https://timefortruth.blog/2021/05/04/the-woke-culture-its-origins-and-agendas/
It should be obvious that the entire debate about "wokeness" is a substitute for the lack of a political platform that serves the people as a whole. Its purpose is to hide the bigotry of the bigots, the racist views of many.
