Sully sounded the alarm last weekend.
In that article, he referenced Wesley Yang who coined the term “successor ideology” to describe the new woke governing ideology that has replaced liberalism among the Democratic establishment.
Wesley Yang has a new article out about this on his Substack. Meanwhile, Axios is saying that Sullivan was “once influential” until he was ran out of New York Magazine during the mania last summer for “white supremacy.” Sullivan was toppled right alongside Aunt Jemima and the Washington Redskins.
“The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences of America announced last year that it would set diversity quotas for any film eligible to win a best picture award. In order to enforce these targets, there will be regular surprise inspections into the racial origins and gender identity of cast and crew.
At the time of this announcement, I joked on Twitter that such inspections would be ideal work—cushy, low-risk—for former police officers from soon to be abolished, defunded, and/or “reimagined” departments: “Defund police in order to fund racism police.”
Last year’s joke is this year’s policy.
The Small Business Administration prioritized emergency Covid grants to restaurants by race. The Department of Agriculture prioritized funding to black farmers. The state of Vermont allowed BIPOC residents early access to the vaccine. The state of California mandates diverse representation on corporate boards. San Francisco introduced a pilot public/private partnership program offering monthly cash payments reserved exclusively for black and Pacific Islander women. …”
Woke progressivism can be summed up as “It’s NOT Okay To Be White.”
We live under “white supremacy” and systematic racism in which cishet White males are oppressing BIPOC and LGBTQIA people. A curious feature of this social order is that the political establishment explicitly discriminates against White people and glorifies blacks who are favored above all other races. Juneteenth, for example, is made into a federal holiday while White men are censored on the internet and hounded into unemployment in the name of “social justice” by rich White progressives.
