7 Signs Your Friend Or Family Member Has Fallen Victim To The Woke Mind Virus

Authored by Brett Sinclair via TheFreeThoughtProject.com,

COVID is not the only virus sweeping the West, obsessively woke politics is running rampant with the most virulent variants emerging in newsrooms and colleges.

As an acquaintance of mine slowly succumbed, here’s what I observed.

There are certain traits that appear to be extremely common among people who are ‘woke’. Woke being now a common term for those among us who become righteously incensed with progressive social justice issues (typical of mainstream Western media imbibers or recent university graduates). Often, we can see this obsession manifesting in the form of aggressive protest activism – not just as a hobby, but at every social, private, and professional level of their lives. That is a ‘woke’ personality.

While there are well-known physical markers indicating a woke person (blue or purple hair, obesity, androgyny, wispy beards in men, annoying spectacles) I have for some time been a curious student of their habits and psychological mannerisms, which I have also noted, along with the physical traits, to have universal qualities.

I had until recently assumed that these universal personality traits were evidence of a condition existing in the person first (i.e smug over-confidence) which left them susceptible to ‘woke ideas’. But more and more anecdotal experience is teaching me that becoming woke, or contracting the ‘woke virus’, creates its own type of human psyche in the unsuspecting host, which is recognizable across many observable cases. It is my opinion that this psyche is the result of the mind-virus, and not necessarily a pre-existing quality. Thus, if true, this means wokeness itself reshapes the mind.

These qualities are:

  1. Smugness. An absolute, unwavering, and arrogantly condescending attitude toward all non-woke opinions. While a trait in itself, it is related to number 2.
  2. Lack of introspection. No trace of self-questioning or apparent inner monologue. No sense of fairness or understanding of relative opinion.
  3. Quickness to anger. Willingness to not only voice their opinion on any occasion, with anyone, even when outnumbered, but to do so angrily. A willingness to cut off any friend or family member who won’t comply with woke belief.
  4. Nihilist atheism. They will rant a lot about science, while at the same time ignoring science that doesn’t comply with their beliefs. They tend to assume you are dogmatically religious if you don’t agree with them. They will cling to a strongly negative nihilism believing that everything is ultimately hopeless, and that it is sardonic hubris to do or believe in anything (which ties into number 6).
  5. Dishonesty. They are willing to be openly dishonest to further their viral ideas. If they lose a point in an argument, they move on to a new point, never acknowledging or acquiescing that a point was lost. When all attack points are used, personal attacks begin. The past is a blank slate open to revision.
  6. Self-absorbed. This one took me a while to notice, but it seems a give-away idiosyncrasy that you are dealing with a woke-infection if the person has become abnormally self-centered, and in conversation, does not so much reciprocate, as talk about themselves, always positive or self-aggrandizing, often unrealistically. They may also insert self-pity, it seems to generally exacerbate a need for attention-seeking.
  7. Depression, low self-worth, anxiety. This one I also only noticed recently, it is likely the subconscious result of numbers 4 and 6 in particular. Any genuine personal questioning of the subject usually reveals deep worries and angst, and often mental health issues.

A recent experience with an acquaintance, a middle-aged woman who, through a new circle of friends, went from normal and apolitical to fully woke, permitted me to study changes (with a detached horror) as they occurred. Firstly, she began to exhibit extreme self-centeredness, as this new social peer group became important to her (I believe it was a ‘book club’). It began with her seemingly becoming incapable of talking about anything but herself. I had noticed that quality in other woke friends, and in many I could recall they were not previously like that, but this was the first adult person to transition slowly before my eyes, so I got out my clipboard and took notes.

She became somewhat manic, high-anxiety, more worrisome, and less healthy-seeming. Along with this came casual smug political remarks in polite conversation. It goes without saying there were constant, needy Facebook posts about woke politics, or herself, or the ideal combination: posts about herself woke-crusading. Now none of this was part of her personality previously, at all, despite woke politics being with us many years now. It began for her with a new circle of peers that she obviously wished to impress and is culminating currently in her friends and family seriously considering an intervention of psychological help, not because of the constant virtue-signaling, but for the other more self-destructive personality changes.

It reminds me of the science of psychopathy. I was very interested to learn in my youth, not just that psychopaths essentially have little or no emotional feeling, and certainly no empathy, but that they exist among us in high numbers. They don’t all become serial killers, but there are people you know who are psychopaths that you would never have guessed because they learn to mimic human behavior. Severe trauma in youth can appear to create psychopathy, so it can be an environmental condition.

I’m not saying woke people are psychos (though they both share the narcissism), I am saying psychological conditions can be created, and that the modern world, with its rampant materialist consumerism, dogmatic atheism and self-hating education system, is perhaps manufacturing a new human psyche, one both frail and fraught and in its own perverse way, merciless.

Watch as the virus spreads, watch and study and hope you have immunity.

At the Crossroads….

By the Moderator.

In 2021, it is easy to imagine that western civilization is on the brink of major change, be it for the best or for the worst. Some developing concerns are forming and will arise to change humanity’s destiny.

The Mark of the Beast

As you are well aware, society is becoming increasingly divided. This division and subsequent demonization could result in persecution or even genocide.

Some Christians have postulated that this mark of differentiation, to deny business, free speech and freedom of movement, is found in the growing emphasis on the vaxxed and the un-vaxxed. Whilst I believe that the protection of one’s health and the health of the population is vital, I also don’t think that the vax is necessarily the mark of the Beast. However, the radical humanistic system surrounding this issue will no doubt give rise to ‘The Mark’.

I have heard violent rhetoric from both sides of the debate, with some liberals even demanding that the other side to be exterminated for the greater good of humanity. This is a dangerous development. With France introducing a ‘vax’ passport and other countries considering similar systems, this no doubt will be a way of controlling movement, business transactions and the freedom of speech.

Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. (Revelation 13:16-17)

Christian Persecution

The intellectual narcissism of the radical, leftist woke ideology will target Christians and conservatives because of its underlying unwillingness to acknowledge the merits of opposing views. This unwillingness is derived from a love of sin,  godlessness and self-worship. It can be seen by approving of segregation in schools and educating the youth that one race is evil while another is superior. This ignores completely the unity and equality humanity has as children of the Living God.

Instead, morality is denied and hatred is directed towards anyone that disapproves of neo-marxist views pertaining to race, gender, sexuality and history. Christians and conservatives are then positioned in the minds of the populace as inhuman and evil, even though they follow the Word of the Lord. Private and public organisations have moved to censor and socially punish those who deny or oppose the radical left. It is only a matter of time before the terrible ideals espoused in the movie, ‘The Purge’, are given creedence and the state sanctions the removal of Christians and conservatives.

Another angel, a second, followed, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, she who made all nations drink the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality.” (Revelation 14:8)

Mass polarisation and distrust against Christians and conservatives will be propagandised by the media and the government. By labelling them as “terrorists” and “white supremicists”, it will make it easier for the unthinking, godless public to hate them.

A War with Russia and China

Both Russia and China are working together and engaging in military exercises. The stated purpose is to “bring down US arrogance.”

The Chinese Communist Party spokesman said:

“China and Russia must unite a large number of developing countries to find the right opportunities and agendas to bring down US arrogance.

In this way, Western countries will realize that the United States is not all-powerful and always victorious. “

Statements by a Chinese General:
“This is the first time that the Russian Army has come to China for a strategic exercise.

It is also the fourth year in a row that Russia and China have been holding strategic exercises together.

This shows the strategic cooperation between Russia and China and the determination and ability of the two armies to ensure regional peace and stability.

This will promote the development of mutual trust between the two Armies

The two countries will set up a Joint Headquarters and join forces during the exercise.

In fact, in order to help the Russian forces to adapt quickly to the Chinese conditions, a Chinese accounting support company has made extensive preparations “.

13,000 Soldiers
The name of the exercise is “The Zapad / Interaction-2021” and is a combination of the large annual Russian military exercise “Zapad” and the Chinese “Interaction-2021”.

The exercise will take place from August 9-13 and will involve 13,000 troops from Russia and China. (Hal Turner 9th August).

There is no longer any denial that the US and west are the enemy to both China and Russia, who are angry over trade, political and territorial claims.

Perhaps the US and the west is this great city in Revelation 18:10):

“Alas! Alas! You great city, you mighty city, Babylon! For in a single hour your judgment has come.”

What Shall We Do?

Revelation 14:7 states: “Then I saw another angel flying directly overhead, with an eternal gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on earth, to every nation and tribe and language and people. And he said with a loud voice, “Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come, and worship him who made heaven and earth, the sea and the springs of water.”

Shall we not fear our Lord, trust in Him and worship His Glory?

7 Signs Your Kid Might Be Learning CRT At School

More satire from the Babylon Bee: https://babylonbee.com/news/7-signs-your-kid-might-be-learning-crt-at-school

We all know that CRT is simply the honest teaching of American history. It’s also a niche legal theory that is only taught in college. It’s also an arbitrary label that racists use to slander everything they don’t like. It’s also the only way to make sure your elementary school kids don’t grow up thinking slavery is good. Wow! Are you confused? You probably are. Whiteness has that effect on people. We’re here to help.So how can you know your kids are being taught CRT in school?

Here are the 7 signs:

1) They call your boss to tell how racist you are: If your kid tries to get you canceled because you perpetuate systems of oppressive whiteness by treating all races equally–which is totally racist– they might be learning CRT.

2) They segregate all their stuffed animals by fur color: Kids who have been taught CRT know the value of creating segregated, decolonized spaces for their stuffies of color to play without white harassment.

3) They come home with purple hair and a ‘Kill All Men’ tattoo: This look is the standard issue for kids who believe all the tenets of CRT.

4) They try to get out of math homework by telling you math is racist: Well, it is. So why are you making them do it, you racist boomer?

5) They refuse to eat on Taco Tuesday due to cultural appropriation: Literally every white ally of social justice knows that enjoying any aspect of another culture that doesn’t belong to your own is racist. Segregate those cultures, Mom and Dad!

6) They ask all their minority classmates to bully them: Are they white? Then they deserve it!

7) They explain over dinner how Marxist ideology is a potent and effective tool for infiltrating all aspects of modern civilization– including culture, religion, economy, and government– in order to dismantle the established order and topple the bourgeois: Wow! so true! If your kid exhibits any of these signs, they’re on their way! Give them a salute, Comrade!
