Ooh…the profundities from today’s WOKE artists and their cancel culture customers. Sad!
Here’s a video from Camp Flog Gnaw.
Drake: “I’m here for you tonight. If you want to keep going, I will keep going. What’s up?”
Some fans boo loudly. One yells “No!”

Tyler the Creator…he mad bruh.
Just a few months ago, Canadian rapper Drake was a heartthrob/cultural messenger for teenyboppers worldwide. Now they’re booing him off the stage. His host Tyler the Creator is like What the what? I thought social justice warriors were all about unconditional love!
Why the slow walk? Are we witnessing evolving mores or did Drake just walk into an unexpected purity trap?
Scumbaggery thrives among the WOKE. The WOKEYS are too emotionally immature to recognize it. Only the passage of time will enlighten the WOKE generation to appreciate history and their very short link in the chain of humanity.
Oh Lizzo. You so woke. Imma hit you back later in this post.
Today’s cute kids (OK BOOMER!) are a trifle thin-skinned when anyone points out that their SJW work is not a fresh (or sincere) concept. They’re certain that they originated the mission of correcting injustice. They’ll let you know on Twitter with lots of filthy language and menacing imposition BECAUSE THAT’S HOW WOKE WE IS BRUH!
When they say “OK boomer.” You reply “OK moocher.”
Too thick-headed to understand that older people have already experienced and learned from life’s challenges? Wisdom comes from age and failures-turned-victories.
But moochers are narcissists, dependent on LIKES and affirmations that they’re 🔥. They have no idea what the previous paragraph even means.
OK moochers…you’re dismissive of boomers through tweets and Gram posts you compose on the $800 iPhone that mommy bought for you. You’re still on her Verizon family plan because you can’t pay for your own service contract, but yeah, tell us again how we’ve failed you. Oh, and turn off the basement light when you walk upstairs for your free dinner. SOMEONE has to pay the utility bill.
Crack open a history book and learn ya some truth, WOKEYS.
You’re not original. You’re not brave. You’re moochers who used mommy’s (or the bank’s) money to stay in college for 9 years to earn a Masters in feelings. There’s good money in that!
“MAKE ME WANNA HOLLER…THE WAY THEY DO MY LIFE” – Marvin Gaye, the wokiest woke artist ever.
Let’s not forget the recent pushback from former President Barack Obama. He had the audacity to hope that SJW would slow their roll on keyboard judgment. OK Obama. “That’s not activism…if all you’re doing is casting stones.”
Today’s much ballyhooed cancel culture is blind to (1) due process, and (2) simple acknowledgment that you didn’t invent societal correction. Research much? Nope. Think cancel culture is only about the #MeToo movement? Nope.
He raises a good point… I’ve never liked the term “cancel culture” and it seems to be a giant buzz phrase right now. https://t.co/e9Z7aRCVhD
— Hayden Ristevski (@HaydenWDRB) November 10, 2019
The cancel culture is the internet mob of self-proclaimed righteous people damning someone else TO MAKE THEMSELVES LOOK COMPASSIONATE. It’s not really about the issue, it’s how the person casting the stone looks righteous to her peers.
Remember how celebrities and media tried to annihilate the Covington Catholic students before additional video discredited their narrative?
How about the Oberlin College kids ruining a local doughnut shop’s business after a thief claimed the owner was racist. Fuller investigation led to the thief pleading guilty but he’d already played the race card to divert attention from his crime. The Black Lives Matter mob destroyed the business’ reputation with the aid and encouragement of Oberlin officials. A jury agreed that the business had been defamed by a poorly informed SJW pack, ordering the school to pay $33 million to the owners.
Comedian Sarah Silverman, a “marginalized” Jewish comedian, was relentlessly trashed over a blackface parody that effectively mocked racists. But that didn’t matter to the WOKE left. Silverman says internet mobs are simply creating “righteousness porn.”
Siding with emotion over facts can destroy a society. Study history. Understand that there is nothing new under the sun. Shut up and learn from those who’ve already walked the life path that’s still ahead of you.
In spite of Greta Thunberg’s affected hysteria, climate change will not make the earth uninhabitable in 10, 50, or 2,000 years. It’s just more hype to sell a brand of mostly disingenuous righteousness.
The answer to the meme question is, of course, that Greta SEEKS fawning worldwide media attention. Nick Sandman was a private citizen enjoying a school trip to Washington. Get over yourselves, moochers. Your game is old school. Already been done. The world was WOKE long before you were born.
Americans in the 1950s and 60s launched corrective measures that cleared the path for civil rights advancement, climate “ecology” movement, LGBTQ, transgender issues, financial parity, and so much more.
Oprah is a billionaire who is just “OK, boomer” to millennials, the same people who will death stomp anyone who calls Lizzo fat. “She’s curvy” they’ll say about Lizzo when we all understand that obesity is America’s top killer. But let’s not get too real. Feelings matter more than facts, OK moochers?
Oprah is, in millennial minds, an impediment to their WOKE world. They say she’s a billionaire who disrespects the planet by flying in private jets. She lives in any number of mansions. WOKE dopes think she doesn’t keep her primary focus on Black Lives Matter as opposed to assisting people from all walks of life.
Oprah should be the QUEEN of WOKE. Oprah was a small town TV talent just like tens of thousands of other journalists. But Oprah had a plan, an assist from her minority status, and the vision to take control of her own product. She perfected the art of personal ownership of media arts, a battle first conquered by Cuban immigrant Desi Arnaz in the 1950s.
Arnaz and his wife Lucille Ball (she kept her OWN name in the 50s!) created their show and then sold it back to the networks instead of the networks owning the show and paying them a salary. All future rerun residuals were controlled by Lucy & Desi.
Oprah took that seed with her own show and improved it to control distribution and complete control of all associated intellectual property.
They beat THE MAN. Sadly, history deficient WOKE nitwits don’t know Lucille Ball…but they know Lonzo Ball. This is what lack of intellectual curiosity hath wrought.
In 1956, Nat King Cole was the first African American with a self-titled network show. It faced challenges retaining advertisers because of racism but it opened the gates. The Mod Squad, Mannix, Star Trek, and dozens of other shows introduced strong African American characters to their storylines.
Sanford and Son, The Jeffersons, Good Times, Laugh-In, SNL, Second City, and In Living Color all explored outrageously funny racial situations. Eventually, The Cosby Show dominated American television nearly forty years ago illustrating a very successful family that just HAPPENED to be black.
The Cosby Show ratings were through the roof. Color was no factor, it was a well written show about people advancing in life by handling their problems with integrity. No constant whining or constant focus on “yeah, but what about…” naysayer complaints. Positivity is a guiding light.
The other networks had competing shows but The Cosby Show crushed all challengers. America had finally grown up to value everyone’s contributions shown in a positive light.
“But what about financial disparity?” cry the WOKE people. Affirmative Action, Pell Grants, United Negro College Fund, and thousands of other assistance programs long ago boosted any minority person with determination to go to college for free. There are no excuses. A person either has the drive or settles for a lesser lot in life.
Here in Louisville, public schools must allow a more severe level of infractions in order to suspend a black student compared to any other race.
Many sectors of minority students, particularly black males, lag behind in reading and science achievement. Assistance programs for toddlers have been in place for decades. America has been WOKE to education challenges and poured trillions of dollars into corrective Great Society programs going back more than 50 years.
We old school WOKE.
Today’s causes are just reruns built upon the toil of the maligned boomers. Rock & Roll tore down societal norms. Elton John, David Bowie, Billie Jean King, Renee Richards, carried the LGBTQ flag. Marvin Gaye sang of Inner City Blues Make Me Wanna Holler, and Mercy, Mercy Me, The Ecology in 1970. Stevie Wonder’s Living For The City tore open the issues of judicial inequities. A million more songs, TV shows, movies, and news reports followed with a Black Lives Matter theme, just not under that modern movement name.
Countless women singers and performers pushed feminism forward since the Civil War. Harriet Tubman, Susan B. Anthony, Carrie Nation, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, Germaine Greer, Cher, Big Mama Thornton, Oprah, Mae West, Katherine Hepburn, Helen Reddy, Janis Joplin, Mary Tyler Moore, and Mama Cass all pushed the envelope way past its boundaries.
Carole King, Joni Mitchell, and hundreds of women contemporaries sang of female challenges and triumphs in a much more profound way than today’s ridiculously base musings from Queen Bae Beyonce.
“When he fucks me good I take his ass to Red Lobster. If he hit it right maybe I take him for a flight on my chopper” chants Beyonce. Because crass materialism trumps societal evolution of the 60s? Beyonce, please.
Please stop pretending that millennials invented the WOKEY WOKE JOKE. Congratulate and celebrate all generations of society on its evolution and work as a teammate to keep life progressing for all.
Here is DJ WOKE WOKE’s TOP TEN social justice tunes sweeping back through 50 years. It’s a boomer buffet of benevolent brotherhood!
Is our societal cleanup over? Never. There will always be predators and troublemakers and we, all of us, are focused on ferreting them out. Due process must be the driving force, not triggered emotional outrage without proof.
Whenever you, dear reader, get around to actually researching some of the people and points raised in this post, examine the Salem Witch Trials and discover how rushing to judgment gets people killed.
One last piece. Former CBS news anchor Charlie Rose is unemployed because he was secretly preying on the young women who researched, produced, and prepped his show. He was rightfully dismissed after much credible evidence was brought forth.
In this interview, Rose chats with the remaining members of Led Zeppelin, an iconic band whose performers used to brag about sleeping with young girls. The Zep boys, Mick Jagger, Rod Stewart, Steven Tyler, and tons of other crusty old men were never held accountable for their predatory behavior because, well, society still gives them a pass.
Drake has been dragged. Why not Mick? Curious, no?
THREAD: Since @TheSimpsons are hypocritical enough to ban Stark Raving Dad because 14-time acquitted, FBI-cleared MJ is in it (and over a provably false movie), let's take a look at the alleged predators that they have never even mentioned "punishing".

TWO BONUS 1970s TRACKS ON BLACK LIVES MATTER…

Yes, that’s 76-year-old Norman Greenbaum performing his monster 1970 hit Spirit in the Sky just a few years ago. The song was on the charts for 15 weeks and apparently the royalties have allowed him to live the comfortably modest life he chooses.
From a CNN story about a traffic accident that injured Greenbaum and killed a motorcyclist:
Greenbaum needed a cane in that 2016 video above as he recuperated from the accident. Here’s how he looked and moved back in the 70s.
So once again I ask…how in the world does a different 76-year-old rocker named Mick Jagger do what he does?
Walk. Run. Bend. Stretch. Live.
Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin is not quite ready to admit that he was beaten by attorney general Andy Beshear in the 2019 gubernatorial election.
He lost by about 5,100 votes but is convinced that absentee ballots were mishandled, polling places had access problems, and that Democrat secretary of state Alison Lundergan Grimes and her felonious father somehow cheated.
President Donald Trump claims he nearly erased Bevin’s reportedly 17 point deficit with his Lexington rally on election eve. Of course, no one polled a 17 point differential. Polls were mostly “dead heat” status to +5 for Bevin.
Morning Joe has his facts all wrong, too. Quite a fascinating week of bad math and good drama in Kentucky.
— Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) November 6, 2019
But Morning Joe’s contributor Steve Kornacki has it right. All of the other Republican candidates had massive victories. About 100,000 of Republican voters chose all conservative candidates but refused to vote for Bevin.

Kentucky attorney general Andy Beshear shocked the political world with a razor thin upset of incumbent Governor Matt Bevin in an election that saw all other Republicans win big. Beshear’s decision to stick to healthcare and jobs as main topics overwhelmed Bevin’s “I’m buddies with Trump” strategy.
There were almost 500,000 more voters in 2019 when compared to Bevin’s victory in the 2015 election.
Incoming Republican attorney general Daniel Cameron has already stated that he would take the office back to its intended purpose of law enforcement. Beshear was criticized for filing a slew of lawsuits intended to slow down Bevin’s initiatives.
Surprisingly, President Donald Trump’s raucous Lexington rally on election eve did not close a suspected wide polling gap hampering Bevin. Of course, the president did not accept the blame for Bevin’s loss but did take credit for the victories of other Kentucky Republicans.
#ElectionNight Won 5 out of 6 elections in Kentucky, including 5 great candidates that I spoke for and introduced last night. @MattBevin picked up at least 15 points in last days, but perhaps not enough (Fake News will blame Trump!). Winning in Mississippi Governor race!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 6, 2019
The expected Trump Bump was either insufficient or evidence of a Trump Slump. National media is hammering away at the latter possibility.
For now, Kentucky Governor-elect Andy Beshear is like the guy in Castaway. He is all alone and likely facing rough resistance from a Republican legislative supermajority.
Beshear told me on Monday that he will get expanded gaming passed. “I’m gonna make it happen.” Andy can write an EO to advance gaming or marijuana. The supermajority is then likely to push back with superseding law(s). They only need a majority to override a veto. Meanwhile, pension ￼obligations are bleeding out the rest of state ￼revenues. The new service taxes are improving revenue. Nonetheless, adding gaming and pot won’t cover the general fund needs and all pension demands. Beshear told me “I will fully fund (pensions) every year.”
Monday on @840WHAS, I asked @AndyBeshearKY what he would do in the first days of his administration: Beshear promised to 1) rescind Gov. Bevin's Medicaid waiver (saving $270m), 2) seat a new board of education, and 3) restore voting rights to 140,000 non-violent felons. 1/3 pic.twitter.com/kVWXgTTNYS

Could there be a recount or recanvas? A UK law professor posted these details about procedures to challenge election outcomes in Kentucky. He later added this tweet.
UPDATED INFO ON KENTUCKY POST-ELECTION PROCESS:
I made a mistake earlier about KY law: there is NO recount procedure for #KYGov. The statutes exclude gubernatorial races from the recount process.
Thus, the next steps are only a recanvass and an election contest in legislature.
— Josh Douglas (@JoshuaADouglas) November 6, 2019
UPDATE: The day after the election, Governor Matt Bevin called a press conference to demand a voter recanvass. Bevin claimed there were multiple irregularities and cast aspersions upon Democrat secretary of state Alison Lundergan Grimes. He suspects that “thousands” of absentee ballots were mishandled, some polling places had access problems, and that Grimes’ ineptitude along with her father’s felony conviction for election violations demands a recanvass.
On the morning after, it is Matt Bevin who is feeling all of the pain.
Kentucky’s new world order will be quite a spectacle.
President Donald Trump rallied in Lexington’s Rupp Arena on behalf of Governor Matt Bevin on the night before his re-election bid. Trump talked about Bevin’s many achievements, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s successes in getting federal judges confirmed, Kentucky’s overall progress, University of Kentucky basketball, and many random quips about various national Democrat stars.
“Matt Bevin is pro-worker, pro-life, and 100% pro-Second Amendment,” Trump said to a rousing response from the audience.
As for the chance that Democrat attorney general Andy Beshear could take the governor’s seat from Bevin, Trump stated emphatically “You can’t let that happen to me.”
President Trump has made a last-minute rally push Monday night for Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin, a strong ally who is facing a tough fight in Tuesday's election against Democrat Andy Beshear, the state's attorney general. https://t.co/TDiHBxv7Ql
— NBC News (@NBCNews) November 5, 2019
Trump referenced the all-time high Dow Jones industrial average, intense trade negotiations with China, America’s global standing under his administration, and the challenges that slowed prior presidents.
The Lexington Herald Leader’s takeaway centered on a Trump joke about Bevin’s persistent requests to persuade company owners to consider expanding in Kentucky. Trump kidded that Bevin can be “such a pain in the ass, but that’s what you want.”
There’s the “gotcha” phrase that the Herald Leader can use to mirror its own editorial summary of Bevin, his administration, and anything Republican.
The POTUS mocked Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, The Washington Post, “fake news” media, and other liberal faves like gun control and the Paris Climate Accord. “These people are lunatics!” Trump blasted from the stage.
Days earlier, the Louisville Courier Journal delivered its usual affirmation for the Democrat du jour.
The state’s two largest newspapers remain perpetually blue, trying to sell their products in a decidedly red Kentucky. No national Democrat rallied on behalf of Andy Beshear over the course of the campaign. With Democrat 2020 presidential candidates’ overt promotion of socialism, free healthcare for illegal immigrants, and climate change prioritization, no Kentucky candidate needs friends like those.
A packed Rupp Arena crowd even cheered when Mr. Trump referenced Ford’s business investment “in Louisville.” Peace is possible.
