From a Qperson’s perspective, “woke” is “anything that disturbs my complacency feeling of ascendancy”. From my perspective, “woke” simply the opposite of “asleep”.
Woke is an adjective derived from African-American Vernacular English (AAVE) meaning “alert to racial prejudice and discrimination” (Wikipedia so it must be true).
Oh, they are trying out some really stupid misinterpretations.
They cannot explain Make America Great Again, either.
“Woke” is the new “Obscenity”
When Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart was asked to describe his test for obscenity in 1964, he responded:
“I know it when I see it.”
Nowadays, we are told, by some: “Woke is bad.”
We say: “OK, so exactly what IS Woke?”
We could be using brainpower to solve climate change or something more important
Applies to any assertion that Trump, et al., have made great achievements.
The GQP Cult has always only had hatred and fear mongering and obstruction in their playbook. Absolutely anything else the Cult leaders tell them to ignore or just sleep through. Things like education and critical thinking and empathy and decency towards all. Sleep tight America your MAGA-ots are on watch for the likes of rainbows on beer cans and changes to the objects of the wankers “affection” in certain M&M’s and Big Bird and the Potatoheads. Anything close to being related to moving all of America forward? Nothin’ but zzzzzzzz’s
It’s whatever the leaders tell me what it is, and I respond like all my fellow followers do…. ’cause I believe in freedom and indi… indiv… indvidwalizm.
ABSOLUTELY 100% ACCURATE!!

Stupid is as stupid does.
Woke = CRT for the Alt-Reich, demons they can scream and flail at although they have no effect on them. These words join ones such as Democracy as ones they have no understanding of.
I am so tired of woke. Could we have a new word, please? A word with some content, perhaps?
Again, “woke”, much like ‘politically correct’, is simply showing consideration for your fellow American. conservatives try to demonize those terms. Do conservatives oppose showing consideration, or just oppose Americans?
“Woke” = any word or deed that includes all peoples, even those outside of one’s tribe.
The next panel (not included) shows what the alt-right does with his clenched fist…
Make lying shameful again. Stop republican bullies.
Please don’t feed it alcohol and fox programming
After you define “woman”, “socialist” “left-wing” or “right-wing”
I cannot get any self identified “leftist” to even define what that word means.
And I don’t care what “woke” used to mean or what people who claim to be “woke” says it means as they are only praising themselves. “Woke” has come to represent a bunch of people who take offense at things just to bully other people into silence. You listen to “woke” people claim that they are offended by terms or things for another group of people that are not offended by it. I never met a Mexican who was upset at a white person making tacos but “woke” white people shut down businesses where this was done. So it is white people trying to defend other groups because they do not feel those people can defend themselves.
I said this in another cartoon, but it applies here. “Woke” is anything the right hates.
I occasionally get weird “recommended for you” articles popping up on my Facebook page; today’s was about a county fair dropping the swimsuit competition from the teen beauty pageant they hold as part of the festivities. What stood out was that pretty much all of the comments on the article from MEN were shrieks about “wokeness,” and specifically swipes at trans people, blaming them for the loss of this part of the pageant.
Yeah, sure, dude, trans women are preventing you from ogling underage girls in bikinis. Amazing how the MAGA mind calculated that this part of the competition was dropped because the “women might be men” instead of maybe it’s finally time we do away with this dated old norm because it’s not really appropriate or necessary to make these young women do this in a competition that is supposed to reward talent, civic pride and academic excellence.
Yeah, bros, we get it – it ALWAYS has to be about you. And your FEAR of anything you don’t agree with. I guess now I understand why you need an ’effing rifle slung over your shoulder to shop at Walmart…
In short, “woke” represents a somewhat eccentric, bordering on extreme, version of “progressive” politics wherein those who hold ostensibly “progressive” views feel compelled to force their views upon others through a variety of methods ranging from general anti-social behavior at the micro level to deliberate efforts to reshape available products and entertainment at the macro level.
It means anything they hate.
