Trump was President for 4 years, and he was the least authoritarian President in decades.
But perhaps the most alarming aspect of Social Justice, as far as its effect on a liberal society, is the extent to which this ideology provides a justification for pervasive, quasi-totalitarian policing of speech, thought, and private behavior.
The language seems hyperbolic, since “wokists” are not throwing anyone in the gulag. But Social Justice is totalitarian in spirit in the same way that Trumpism is authoritarian: at least for now, both, fortunately, lack the power to enforce their will.
For one thing, Social Justice demands de facto banishment of “wrongthink” from the public square. Plenty of political movements seek to silence critics and dissenters; but Social Justice makes such silencing a moral imperative, since “bad” ideas and words are seen as inflicting “harm” or “violence.”
Just compare to Biden, who is regularly issuing vaccine mandates, admitting aliens, and even violating court orders.
She calls herself a Libertarian-conservative, but any real libertarian or conservative would see that Trump's 4 years were vastly superior to Biden or other recent Presidents.
Wokeism is, above all else, an attack on White culture. White=hating underlies everything.
Wokeism celebrates craziness such as this:
Assistant Health Secretary Rachel Levine made history Tuesday by becoming the first openly transgender four-star officer in America’s eight uniformed services. ...I didn't know that we had 8 uniformed services.
“Admiral Levine’s historic appointment as the first openly transgender four-star officer is a giant step forward towards equality as a nation. This is a proud moment for us at HHS,” department secretary Xavier Becerra said in a statement.
According to Wikipedia, Levine is Jewish, his parents were lawyers, he attended Hebrew school, he married a woman and fathered two kids, attended Harvard undergraduate, and he became a pediatrician, before transitioning to whatever he is now. His main expertise is in girls' eating disorders.
Would you want your kids to be in the care of this pediatrician? Is this really a proud moment?
Like Pete Buttigieg, this appointment seems to have the only purpose of showing off how the Biden administration tolerates and promote sexual customs contrary to mainstream culture. In other words, wokeism.
