Have We Passed Peak Woke?

A lot of Fridays I post a LibsofTikTok or a Week in Woke and it's all horrifying and depressing.

This Friday, I'm covering wokeness again, but with a more optimistic spin.

On a recent episode of Triggernometry, the Critical Drinker expressed his belief that we have passed Peak Woke.

He stressed this doesn't mean woke is over. If you think about a hill, and its peak, passing the peak doesn't mean you're back down at ground level. You can still be pretty high.

It just means you've passed the highest point -- the peak of woke -- and are on the way back down to normalcy.

Comics Matter (aka Ya Boi Zach) has been claiming that woke is on the run for a while. I didn't really believe him, but there was a major event in the comic book industry a few months ago that suggested that maybe woke is on its way out.

The story: A Boston comic retailer complained that he could not sell a lot of the crap comics the industry was spamming out. (Obviously he is very sensitive to bad, unsaleable comics -- they murder the retailers who are tricked into buying them, but then cannot sell them for full price, or even for half price. Comic books are not returnable.)

One major complaint he had was that the nitwit writers were not writing classic, very manly characters like Tony Stark or Steve Rogers in-character. Rather, they substitute their own femmy, Current Year concerns, phobias, and anxieties make man's men parrot their own Twitter freak-outs.

The typical Cancel Police immediately attempted to cancel this man. They made fun of him for being, well, a comic book fan -- he was overweight, older, not-too-stylish, and a bit awkward. One obese comic book writer attacked him for being fat.

A woke black comic book artist -- well, a low-level artist -- named Jerome Igle decided to brand him a racist, not based on anything he said (he did not mention race at all, nor did he allude to it), but based on the fact that he said this guy reminded him of a disgusting, dirty comic book shop owner he had known who was racist.

See, this guy reminded him of someone else, and that guy (he claims) was racist, so: Q.E.D.

Wow, Jerome -- good to see your many, many accusations of racism are built upon a firm foundation.

The cancellation train was beginning to chug along and approaching top speed, when suddenly it ran into a problem: star comic book writer Mark Millar, writer of Kick-Ass, the Kingsmen, and a bunch of bestselling comics turned into movies and TV shows, stepped up and defended the comic shop owner, echoed his complaints about storied characters being written as if they were 25-year-old Twitter Addicts, and castigated people for attempting to cancel a man for merely offering his (unobjectionable) opinion.

Suddenly the comic book "pros" who were attempting to cancel him fell into retreat. The obese comic book writer who'd made fun of the comic shop owner for being overweight now clarified he didn't mean to call him "fat" as an insult, no, not at all! He had merely called him fat to show that fat comic book nerds should stand in solidarity.

One by one, the would-be cancellers made excuses and softened their objections.

Then Millar coined a new term for then -- he called them "Cancel Pigs," which a pungent, memorable, and highly accurate term for these scumbags. That term, "Cancel Pigs," has now exploded in popularity and is the most popular way to refer to these miserable fascists.

The episode demonstrated a few things. First, the actually-talented people working for corporations had the power to stop this endless purging by the no-talents. At any time, they could have stood up and said, "Enough." But they were too afraid to do so.

The moment Millar stood up, the Cancel Pigs backed down.

Second, it showed that these bloodthirsty savages are all cowards. They were eager to cancel the shopkeeper when they thought his would be an easy scalp to collect, and that their allies would applaud them and their enemies cowed into silent acceptance. The moment they got a little pushback, they all scurried like cockroaches when the kitchen light comes on.

That might have been a sign that wokeness had been allowed to go as far as it would be allowed to go.

There are other signs since then:

Doritos Spain proudly announced they had their own trans influencer -- and boy does that make me want to put their products in my mouth!!!

And then they proudly fired the transfluencer, for... talking about wanting to put things... I can't even say.

Doritos Spain terminated their relationship with transgender influencer Iván González Ranedo, who goes by the stage name Samantha Hudson, after the company came under intense backlash for posting a video on Instagram featuring Hudson.

A spokesperson for Doritos Spain confirmed to Rolling Stone magazine that a short promo called "Crunch Talks" was posted on Sunday and then removed on Monday.

It emphasized that the video was not part of a larger brand ambassadorship campaign.

The spokesperson also revealed that Hudson had been terminated from the company due to making controversial comments in the past.

"We have ended the relationship and stopped all related campaign activity due to the comments," the spokesperson said. "We strongly condemn words or actions that promote violence or sexism of any kind."

Hudson has made controversial statements on capitalism, the family and even child sexual abuse in the past.

Among other controversial alleged comments and posts that have resurfaced online, Hudson endorsed "the abolition of ... the traditional monogamous nuclear family," per the Daily Mail.

"As a teen, she has also tweeted about wanting to do 'thuggish things' to a minor," the outlet reported, in this case a 12-year-old girl.

That is highly euphemized:


"She" wanted to molest a 12-year-old girl. She.

Maybe mentally-ill people who define themselves by advocating for and indulging in transgressive sexual habits aren't necessarily the best spokesthigs for corporations.

End Wokeness noted that wokeness was taking a lot of L's lately:

End Wokeness @EndWokeness

In the past few hours:

-Doritos just FIRED their new trans brand ambassador for pedophiIia tweets

-VP and D.E.I Chief of Johns Hopkins just RESIGNED over her "privilege hit list"

-Biden's VA was forced to RESCIND the memorandum banning the V-J kiss

All of these stories were broken by End Wokeness before any news outlets

Ah, yes: The VA official who demanded that the famous kiss in celebration of the end of WWII must be removed from a museum, because this iconic piece of Americana did not uphold our Current Year values about getting verbal consent for everything.

By the way, Snopes claimed that this was a false story, despite the memo being real. They take the dishonest position that because the VA backed down under intense public pressure, that retroactively changes the past and makes the memo non-existent for all practical purposes.

LibsofTikTok is also celebrating her own wins in the culture war:

Libs of TikTok @libsoftiktok

In just the past day Libs of TikTok has had a tremendous impact!

The Senate changed a bill and removed funding for an LGBTQ center which holds s*x parties after LoTT exposed it.

Texas drag queen teacher resigned after LoTT exposed him.

The US Army updated their training slides which said racism is engrained in America after LoTT exposed it.

Thank you to everyone who supports us so we can continue to do this important work! You can join the mission and support us here:

See additional wins here, and here.

Obviously, there is much left to do. A woman in Oregon has been convicted n a "hate crime" charge for "misgendering" -- actually, correctly gendering -- a transgender and telling him to get out of the ladies' room.

BREAKING Ngo report: A woman has been convicted by a Portland, Ore. jury of criminal harassment and a hate crime after she misgendered and confronted a trans person using the women's bathroom.

Cassandra McIntyre told Riis Larsen (pictured below), a far-left trans activist formerly known as Ronald A. Larsen, that they're a man and to "get out" after the male allegedly shoved another person to cut in line for the women's toilet. The jury saw video of McIntyre lightly shoving Larsen during the confrontation. She was sentenced to two years probation plus community service--longer than what convicted violent BLM-Antifa rioters and arsonists received in Multnomah County.

Larsen is a self-identified Marxist "queer demi-binary trans woman" who posts online often about transphobia.

And of course J.K. Rowling was just reported to the police for the "crime" of "misgendering" -- again, this means correctly gender -- a biological made "transgender."

On Sunday, author JK Rowling offered a lengthy response to an argument she saw on X. The argument was basically saying there was no point in trying to keep trans women out of women's spaces because they would just go in anyway.

Rowling responded to this argument by saying that the law against murder doesn't stop all murders, but that doesn't mean we rush to repeal the law against murder.

J.K. Rowling @jk_rowling

We don't leave our doors and windows wide open when we go out because 'thieves will find a way in, anyway.' Strangely, I've never heard anyone say 'let's stop background checking teachers, because paedophiles will always find a way to interfere with kids.'

When men - all men, however they identify - are banned from women's spaces, those who disregard the ban can be challenged, inside the space and out. They mark themselves out as suspicious by breaking a rule decent men respect. Nobody claims the rule has successfully kept out every single man who wants to commit voyeurism or sexual assault. What we're saying is that allowing males into female only spaces on the basis of their claim to be a women removes an obstacle that has hitherto been *proven* to increase women and girls' safety.

88% of sexual crimes committed in changing/locker rooms happen in those that are unisex. Why? Because malign men don't have to justify their presence near unclothed women and girls. They can't be challenged. They don't stand out. This is obvious to all but the terminally naive.

It is too seldom noted that every single man arguing for the removal of single sex spaces is arguing for his *own* right to enter those spaces. I know from experience that they feign outrage when this point is put to them, gibbering that they're just being good, virtuous progressives who're standing up for trans women, that they *personally* won't be availing themselves of the new opportunities afforded them. The fact remains that instead of calling out male violence against trans women, and working to make male spaces safer, these men have thrown their energy into the fight to remove women's and girls' rights to safety, privacy and dignity.

And if anyone genuinely believes none of these enthusiastic heterosexual, non-trans-identified male 'allies' aren't personally enthralled by the idea of women and girls losing basic protections, I have several bridges to sell you.

Someone thought they could score a big point on J.K. Rowling by showing a video of a biological male pretending to be a woman, a journalist styling himself "India" Willoughby. Surely, this idiot said, surely you don't think that this "woman" should use the men's room!

J.K. Rowling said Yeah, that guy too.

LOL. And now this mysoginistic biological man is attempting to have a woman put in jail for telling the truth.

I kind of hope the police do charge J.K. Rowling -- because that will spark off a massive backlash against this insanity.

So I'm not suggesting we've won. I'm not even agreeing that we've necessarily passed "Peak Woke." We thought we had passed Peak Woke in 2020, and then the Democrat-Media-Complex unleashed its George Floyd op.

And this kind of mental illness and depravity will always be with us, unfortunately:

But maybe Critical Drinker and Ya Boi Zach are right -- maybe we're on the down-slope of the Woke Hill.

(At least until the Regime arranges for another massive, fiery but peaceful op.)

What do you think?

I have a couple of more posts coming later that will touch on this subject.
