Bullying in the “Woke Place” – The Rise of Institutional Wokeism
You must have to have been living in a cave if you have failed to notice the exponential rise in “Wokeism” within our society.
What is Wokeism?
“Wokeism” is a growing phenomenon – emanating from a group of privileged left wing activists/Celebrity Luvvies/Globalists who act as the “Thought Police” for society as a whole.
The shutting down of alternative opinion is their raison d’etre , if you have what they regard as “wrong think” or you refuse to “self censor” then beware because your livelihood or reputation could be at risk – they will come for you.
Recent victims of the “Wokeist” mob include Danny Baker and Laurence Fox, the latter whose recent appearance on Question Time caused an immediate meltdown on social and mainstream media – culminating in multiple death threats and leaving a question mark hanging over the future of his acting career.
I decided to investigate further and my discovery is deeply disturbing.
Disinformation networks removed by Facebook as a result of this investigation posted content viewed an estimated half a billion (533M) times over three months. This means that, on average, these networks produced content that was seen almost 6 million times per day.
Avaaz identified three “alternative media” networks engaging in what they reported as containing elements of “spam behaviour” – Together, these networks have had 1.17 million followers these sites all appeared in the top 20 most shared websites in the UK, sometimes above The Guardian and BBC UK.
Independent mainstream media outlets are engaging in a politically motivated campaign to force YouTube to demonitise and hide any video that denies climate change.
Published on Avaaz’s website, the left-leaning group released a report on 16 January 2020 that claims YouTube is profiting by broadcasting misinformation to millions of people by giving climate denial videos too much prominence.
Vice, Time, Gizmodo, The Verge, and countless other news entities want YouTube to punish creators who don’t toe the “correct” ideological line. The objective is to demonetize, and thus censor, such individuals.
There is a clear attempt to have content hidden. Hiding videos would hurt creators and dissuade them from even trying to share their thoughts. It is an indirect way of removing ‘wrongthink.’
YouTube has already called into question the methodology of the report, but, given the media and powerful activist groups are targeting advertisers such as Nintendo, Red Bull, Uber, and Warner Bros, it’s a safe assumption the platform giant will SUBMIT to their demands if their bottom line becomes affected.
That the MSM agrees with this says a lot. From the reaction to the countless Trump and Russia stories that went nowhere and fizzled, the most blatant purveyors of literal fake news in my opinion are the mainstream media.
I have only just scratched the surface of “Wokeism” and “Wrong Think” but my question would have to be why should anyone or anything have the power to dictate what others can say and think?
Points to Note:-
1. Soros and the political pressure group Avaaz label anti-EU as “far right“ calling into question their credibility to determine what constitutes “false and hateful content”.
2. The list of censored subjects is growing ever longer with the addition of the “Climate Change Agenda”(what next?)
3. Alternative media is becoming more popular than the Guardian and BBC propaganda (hence the censorship).
4. In their mind Brexit and Trump must never happen again – (the powerful are collaborating to “fix the problem”).
Our ancestors paid a heavy price for our freedoms – so lets all remember the phrase from Edmund Burke.
“The only thing necessary for the Triumph of Evil is that Good Men Do Nothing“
I fell into politics quite by accident in 2014 and all because my local County Council brought in a policy switching off street lighting overnight my elderly neighbours felt vulnerable – this spurred me into action and the Right to Light Campaign was born.
I started the Right to Light Petition which garnered over 11,000 signatures enough to trigger a debate at Kent County Council. I delivered a speech in front of 88 Councillors and journalists but they refused to listen to the people and kept the lights off.
I worked closely with a local journalist who followed the campaign from start to finish, publishing articles on an almost weekly basis.
Word spread about the campaign and the Council’s refusal to listen – my phone became a hotline, I was invited onto BBC Breakfast and live radio something I would never have contemplated happening in a million years. Following a fierce 2 year battle and against all the odds streetlighting was restored throughout Kent.
Spurred on by success and having witnessed how badly represented people were at local level I joined UKIP standing as a candidate in Borough and County elections narrowly missing out on a seat by 22 votes on one occasion.
The run-up to the EU Referendum was an exciting time I joined the Grassroots Out Campaign and ran weekly street stalls delivering thousands of leaflets and meeting hundreds of people including Nigel Farage and Gerard Batten. I loved the buzz and the fun was infectious. I have been hooked ever since.
I became a prolific poster on Facebook building up relationships in many groups, I was approached by the owner of a Website/FB page called Fortis est Veritas asking if I would like to write articles to post on his platform. I have to date written 22 articles and really enjoy documenting the twists and turns of Brexit a very exciting time – we are writing history and it is essential that is fully documented.
I am very excited to now be given the opportunity to join the UNN family as a Political Analyst – the next chapter in a very exciting 5 years of my life.
