Fired and unemployable for disobeying the wokeists

Fired and unemployable for disobeying the wokeists. By William Lind.

Just as under economic Marxism, all members of the bourgeoisie are inherently evil and must be “reeducated,” so the same is now true for anyone white, male (or non-feminist female), and straight.

An op-ed from the October 1 Wall Street Journal by a registered nurse, Laura L. Morgan, shows where we are:

I was fired from my nursing job this year for refusing to take “implicit bias” training. After 39 years of providing equal care to all my patients without regard to their race, I objected to a mandatory course grounded in the idea that I’m racist because I’m white. I fear every healthcare professional will soon be forced to make the same awful decision I did: Falsely admit to being racist or abandon the medical field. …

If you dare defend any aspect of traditional society and culture, you are a “thisist” or a “thatist,” a condition that can only be redeemed by endless, groveling apologies and self-criticism — exactly what Nurse Morgan refused to do. So she was fired.

I knew it was coming, but I was still devastated when I was fired in February. I went from a six-figure job to zero income. When I tried to find a new healthcare job, no one would hire me. No doubt if they contacted my old employer, they were told why I was let go.

The kids are the most vulnerable:

The cultural Marxists focus their Critical Theory efforts on those who are least able to resist: school children. Again, it is a mistake to think this is restricted to Critical Race Theory. Critical Theory shapes every aspect of public school. History becomes a history of what a horrible country American has been since its founding. In English classes, ungrammatical English is not only tolerated, it is required (the pronoun farce), and the great books of English literature are replaced with contemporary trash. Not even mathematics escapes. Right answers are labeled an aspect of “white supremacy,” which suggests the cultural Marxists don’t think black people can add or subtract. Any student who rebels against Critical Theory is on his way to the principal’s office. …

What can we do?

A friend suggests we turn 1984 and the left’s supposed desire for “transparency” against them by mandating every public school classroom have a camera parents can tune into live or watch later. …

As to the workplace, there is an easy answer several conservatives have promoted: add “political views” to the list of forbidden discriminations in both state and federal law.
