Benson: The Theology Of “Woke

According to a lady interviewed on Fox News recently, many parents are beginning to get fed up with “woke” indoctrination being perpetrated on their children. One place this occurs is in public schools across the country. One way to combat this satanic (and it is satanic) indoctrination is to get your kids out of public schools. While you may not get rid of all of it that way, as you will get some of it on television and in the movies, you will get rid of a large portion of it by getting the kids out of public school.

We have got to get out of our minds the concept that public schools are still institutions of learning. If ever they were, a premise that is doubtful, that time is long since gone by and it will never return. Way too much water under the bridge for that to happen. The public school system is a major indoctrination center for the New World Order and the United Nations – both of which America would be much better off without!

So, what does “woke” really mean? Dictionaries are already defining it as “socially aware of injustice.” Its “revealed truth” is that those who refuse to go along with it are sinners. Daring to question its revealed tenets is a heresy, and those that won’t convert to it must be destroyed. Sounds a lot like the Muslim religion–convert or die! In other words, wokeism is yet one more leftist theological construct. As such it constitutes a false political religion. I got much of my insight for this from an article on the Gateway Pundit website by Patty McMurray posted on 1/31/23.

Woke is a collectivist ideology. Collectivist thinking must replace individual thinking. It herds people into “broad classes based on defined characteristics – race, sex, religion. In classic Marxism these groups are defined by economic status. Woke defines them by race and sorts them out by privilege. The color of your skin does indeed define your character–forever…collective thinking denies human’s basic dignity and treats them as mere numbers. Key: it also assigns collective guilt.”

Woke is authoritarian – and also Marxist. Woke defines the world as a mere power arena, where all are at war with all others. The name of the game is, basically, who will be “King of the hill?” Woke defines the dominant class as “white supremacy.” Everyone else is a victim of white supremacy! If something exists, it is ripe for destruction.

Woke is totalitarian. Everything is political. No one is allowed to be neutral. Everything is either an instrument of oppression or an instrument of struggle for the victims of oppression. Anything goes! “Like the Maoist Red Guards, the woke believers use their religion to empower themselves by pulling down anyone and anything that catches their attention. Students are allowed to destroy their teachers. Players to destroy their coaches. Colleges then pull down statues of their founders because some of those founders happened to be slaveowners in an era when that was not frowned on. Any of this sound familiar to you all? “Woke means an intolerant, revolutionary, collectivist ideology of power that’s at war with all society, and, yes, it’s explicitly racist.” Of course it parades itself as being vehemently anti-racist, which is absolute fertilizer. Woke is not anti-racist – it is antiwhite! Just one more fake, leftist religion!
