Last week the Atlantic.com, of all places, posted an article dispelling the myth that there is an fast growing progressive movement on the rise in this country.
It’s called being “Woke.” For those unfamiliar, or otherwise have a life, being “woke” is like you figured it all out – that you, more than others, particularly those on the right, have your finger on the pulse of the nation. You’ve been awakened.
In fact these “woke” Americans are the most clueless among us and willfully fall prey to every leftist claim and theory they stumble upon. Unfortunately, the same can be said of some on the right, who too trap themselves in a maze of conspiracy theories.
For the “woke,” the trap is political correctness.
The study the Atlantic cites is entitled, “Hidden Tribes: A Study of America’s Polarized Landscape.”
