    Introducing Counter Wokecraft
    New Discourses is excited to present the first publication in its book imprint, Counter Wokecraft: A Field Manual for Combatting the Woke in the University and Beyond, by Charles Pincourt with James Lindsay. This short, accessible guide presents the idea that Wokeness isn't just a philosophy but also a practice that is used to infiltrate and take over institutional settings, particularly universities. In that regard, it has a method attached to its madness, which Pincourt aptly names "Wokecraft," in parallel to spycraft. This guide presents a brief overview of the Woke ideology ("Wokeness"), outlines many of the most prominent institutional techniques of Wokecraft, and then offers the reader many strategies for identifying and fighting back against Wokecraft wherever it may be encountered. A first of its kind, this book takes on Wokeness at the level of its institutional strategy and equips readers to do something about it. In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, contributor to the book James Lindsay walks through the table of contents in extraordinary detail to give listeners an overview of this exciting and useful new title. Join him and pick up your copy of Counter Wokecraft today!

    Critical Race Theory doesn't exist ...

    ... and even if it does exist, it isn't manifested in schools ...

    ... and even if it is manifested in schools, it's only as an obscure legal theory taught in university-level law courses ...

    Seattle Public Schools employs a full-time critical race theorist.


    Seattle Public Schools officially endorses "Critical Race Theory" as part of its Black Studies curriculum and is "working to develop a liberatory curriculum for grades K-5 that embeds Black Studies across all subjects."


    The Seattle school board does "racial equity training" that explicitly teaches "critical race theory."


    Seattle Public Schools is deploying 31 "racial equity teams" who practice "critical race theory" in K-12 schools, including elementary schools.


    Ballard High School even has a course that explicitly teaches critical race theory. They're not even trying to hide it.


    I found all of this material in less than 15 minutes through Google searches. The argument that "critical race theory isn't in K-12 schools" is an obvious farce—and, luckily, voters see right through it.

    The “Gender-Variant Universe”
    A consortium of publicly subsidized nonprofits wants to “decolonize gender” and normalize male genitalia as a form of authentic womanhood.
    https://www.city-journal.org/transge...heir-own-words
    Christopher F. Rufo (06 June 2022)

    Transgender activism has been making inroads into America’s public institutions. The Biden administration has recently promoted neo-pronouns and gender-reassignment surgery for minors, government agencies have celebrated the expansion of identity categories such as “pansexual” and “non-binary,” and public schools across the country have adopted curricula teaching students about transitioning from one gender to another. Trans activists often present their ideological program through a series of euphemisms and tautologies, such as “gender diversity,” “LGBTQ inclusion,” “love is love,” “protect trans kids,” and “comprehensive sexual education.” But these slogans obscure more than they reveal. The deeper nature of trans ideology is much more radical, and the public should have a clear-eyed understanding of what trans activists believe, beyond the protective layer of obfuscatory language.

    The best way to do this is to listen to activists in their own words. Last year, a consortium of trans organizations in Washington State hosted a presentation series, titled “Decolonizing Gender,” that offers an honest, unfiltered look into the world of trans activism and ideology. The event was hosted by the most prominent gender-identity nonprofits in the region—TRACTION, Lavender Rights Project, Black Trans Task Force, Gender Justice League, and UTOPIA Washington—all of which run programs for minors and receive taxpayer support. (TRACTION, the primary organizer of the event, did not return a request for comment.)

    The panelists represented a wide range of idiosyncratic identities, expressed in a mixture of New Age and intersectional language—the more obscure and oppressed, the greater the status within the community. The main presenter, trans activist Malcolm Shanks, said he was a descendant of black slaves and Taíno tribesmen and “used to identify as gender fluid,” but has been “identifying more recently as a little bit more gaseous or plasma-like.” Randy Ford, a fundraiser for the Lavender Rights Project and black male-to-female “trans femme,” said she uses “‘she,’ ‘her,’ [and] ‘goddess’ as pronouns.” Mahkyra Gaines, a program coordinator for the Gender Justice League, said she uses “no pronouns” and identifies as “non-binary” and “kind of like a black hole.” Ganesha Gold Buffalo, a male-to-female trans prostitute and activist at the Black Trans Task Force, said she identifies as “Choctaw, Cherokee, and black” and with the “sacred lands.”

    To begin the event, Shanks led the group in a “land acknowledgement,” denouncing white colonizers for seizing indigenous territory, and introduced the main theme of the conversation with a long lecture on “decolonizing gender.” The crux of Shank’s argument was that white European colonizers committed genocide against indigenous people and replaced the natives’ peaceful, non-binary gender system with an oppressive “colonial gender binary.” This was the origin of “transphobic violence” and set the background conditions for the oppression of “gender non-conforming people” to the present day. For Shanks, however, the white European male-female binary has always been a harmful myth. “There’s no such thing as male genes or female hormones or a male body,” he said. White colonizers invented these concepts and imposed them on non-Western cultures in order to maintain “a system that creates value for very, very few white men.”

    This conceptual framework—a patchwork of queer theory and postcolonial theory—provides trans activists with a powerful victim narrative and a general explanation for individual suffering. A common thread through the presentations was the articulation of personal “pain” and “trauma,” which, they say, are caused by colonialism and can be mitigated or transcended through “queer” identity constructs. “My first introduction to colonialism looked a lot like me waking up at four in the morning, five in the morning, every morning, to sounds of my ancestors screaming from outside my window, coming from the ground, coming from the earth,” said Ganesha Gold Buffalo, the trans prostitute. “I followed those screams into the woods as a child . . . and was taught by my ancestors in those woods, in the forms of nature spirits, in the forms of elementals, in the forms of natural deities and old gods. While I was out there, I was taught many things and my mind was decolonized.”

    Society, not the individual psyche, is identified as the locus of such disturbances. As such, trans activists see the route to healing not through personal integration, but through the total and unconditional affirmation of their identities by society as a whole. “For gender, myself, it’s been a constant struggle under colonialism, not to accept and affirm myself, but to find acceptance and affirmation and understanding outside of myself,” said Gold Buffalo. Her desire is to live in a society that has been liberated from transphobia and affirms her identity as a woman with a penis. “I one-hundred percent want to still be able to look in the mirror and see every part of myself as a woman, see every part of myself as a two-spirit trans woman, a beautiful being: my moustache, all of my facial hair, my untrimmed brows, my fat ass, my belly, my big dick, everything.” Randy Ford, the fundraiser, echoed this sentiment. “I want you to call me ‘Mommy,’ ‘Queen,’ ‘Daddy,’ if I want you to,” she said. For these activists, the subjective demands of gender identity must be affirmed, no matter how mercurial, self-contradictory, or absurd.

    The ultimate ambition of “decolonizing gender” is to overthrow the intellectual and political regime of white Europeans and reestablish the “gender-variant universe” that was once widely accepted in pre-colonial culture. Malcolm Shanks argued that this campaign of “gender resistance” must destroy not only the concept of the gender binary but also “capitalism,” “white supremacy,” “patriarchy,” “imperialism,” and white European land ownership. In the meantime, as an initial gesture of good faith, the panelists recommended that straight white Americans provide direct cash “reparations” to gender-nonconforming people. “If you have access to generational wealth, if you’re white and your parents have a savings account that is very much so connected to slavery and land theft, pay people,” said Mahkyra Gaines of the Gender Justice League. “Pay people directly. Give them the money so they can have the financial security in order to rest and to heal and to connect with their communities. . . . Pay that money to us now.”

    Though this kind of ideology might appear to be the work of a fringe minority, it is becoming increasingly mainstream in activist and educational institutions. The host organizations for the “Decolonizing Gender” presentations have been remarkably successful in securing taxpayer funding and gaining access to children through educational and social service programs. TRACTION conducts education programs for transgender-identifying youth and has received funding from Washington State. Gender Justice League has received funding from King County and runs a housing program for transgender-identifying homeless minors. The Lavender Rights Project and Black Trans Task Force provide legal services for LGBT youth and have received funding from King County. UTOPIA Washington provides services for sex workers, runs an after-school program for children, and has received funding from Washington State, King County, and the City of Seattle.

    Though the ideas promoted by these activist organizations might be pseudo-historical, internally contradictory, and rooted in personal pathologies, none of this has stopped them from attaining political and cultural influence. Whatever their faults, gender activists have understood that their path to power requires public subsidy and the transmission of their ideology through educational and other public institutions. On that count, they are achieving their objectives.

    See my sig quote. They're really just enemies of natural individuality. Freedom and self-reliance {and critical thinking) springs out of recognizing one's individuality, instead of their goal of embracing collectivism, where all people (AKA PROPERTY) are identical and uniform (aka equality), even if they clearly are not identical and uniform.

    Even the Left are abandoning the Left.

    https://www.spiked-online.com/2022/0...left-the-left/




    I have been dedicated to the left since I was a teenager. As a young woman, I identified as a Marxist, viewing even socialists as ‘not left enough’. I voted for Canada’s left-wing party, the New Democratic Party, in every provincial and federal election from the time I was 18 until a few years ago. I viewed anyone who voted for our centrist party – the Liberal Party, now led by Justin Trudeau – as right-wing. I was not just left, but left of the left, and proud of it.

    Many on the American right lazily refer to the ‘woke’ – that is, the kinds of people who label the United States a ‘white supremacist’ country, who believe respecting preferred pronouns is an important political position, and who insist that those who voted for Trump are dangerous ‘fascists’ – as ‘communists’ and ‘Marxists’. But even five years ago I would have insisted the woke were not the ‘real left’. The real left, I believed, was more interested in material concerns, like raising taxes on the rich, a higher minimum wage, universal daycare and publicly funded healthcare.

    While most opponents of wokeness frame modern leftists as evil, I actually understand them. I know they aren’t, for the most part, bad people – just people with a blind commitment to an ideology claiming to seek justice, equality and an end to exploitation. I was one of these people, and I believed I was on the left because I cared about people and about creating a better world. There was no need for me to explore other ideologies because I knew I was good and right, and those who did not agree with me were wrong and bad.

    Despite my dedication to the radical left, I became a pariah among progressives relatively quickly because of my opposition to the sex trade. I insisted that prostitution, strip clubs, pornography and sexual objectification in the media harmed women. I wrote critically about SlutWalk, a march that began in Toronto back in 2011, where young women attempted to fight victim-blaming by embracing the term ‘slut’ and parading through the streets in their underwear. I also argued that sexualised violence, even if ‘consensual’, is probably not a good thing. This angered the BDSM perverts and third-wave feminists who, like rebellious teenagers, argue that all ‘sex’ is good sex and label anyone who disagrees a religious prude or a ‘slut-shamer’.

    The modern left had already lost the plot when I was beginning my career as a feminist writer back in 2009. The fact that any feminist or socialist would frame prostitution as an empowering choice for women was always strange to me. I remained committed nonetheless. I was always controversial, but things ramped up in 2015 when hundreds of Canadian leftists – members of groups such as the Toronto Sex Workers Action Project, Black Lives Matter Toronto and Trans Pride Toronto – signed a petition demanding I be fired and No Platformed by Rabble.ca, a Canadian progressive news site I worked for at the time.


    The left didn’t want me, but I hung on. It wasn’t until the past couple of years that I came to terms with the fact that I no longer wished to be tied to this modern iteration of the left.

    The most decisive thing for me has been the left’s erasure of women, which is now undeniable.

    Last month, a leaked US Supreme Court draft opinion suggested the possible overturning of Roe v Wade. Thousands rallied across America under the banner ‘My body, my choice’.

    In response to the leak, the ACLU, an organisation that once stood for civil liberties, tweeted that ‘Abortion bans disproportionately harm…’ followed by a long list of identity groups, including the ‘LGBTQ community’ and ‘people of colour’. Notably absent from its list was the only group of people abortion bans directly impact: women.

    Planned Parenthood, the largest provider of reproductive-health services in the United States, began using gender-neutral terms like ‘pregnant people’ and ‘menstruators’ to refer to women as far back as 2016. When I criticised this move at the time, my column was later unpublished by Rabble.ca editors, which led to my resignation. In a Facebook post explaining my split from the site, I wrote that I refused to participate in ‘this Nineteen Eighty-Four-style Newspeak’. Things have only become worse since.


    I wanted the left to change. That’s why I stuck around for so long. I wanted to be a voice of dissent in the movement and to push for something better. I warned that this kind of censorious, cowardly silencing and refusal to have any critical debate about ideas would lead to the left’s failure. But progressives only doubled down – clinging ever-more tightly to ideologies and mantras that are irrational and regressive, and censoring anyone who dared challenge them.

    The left, seemingly along with most feminists, has now decided it no longer knows what a woman is, and that anyone who claims to know must be silenced.

    At a certain point, we have to stop pretending this is just about a few bad apples. We have to stop hanging on, imagining this group will come around. It is time to deal with reality, not wishful thinking: this is the left now, whether we like it or not.

    Fortunately, how you label yourself matters much less than what you actually do and the principles you support. The actions, ideas and policy are what count.

    Blind devotion towards any group is dangerous. And it is particularly dangerous when it is towards a group that demands total capitulation – even to irrational ideas, such as that men are women or that two plus two can sometimes equal five – under threat of ostracism, financial punishment or even arrest.

    We are also expected to believe that the left, which in Canada spent the past year calling for truckers to lose their jobs for protesting against vaccine mandates, is now in favour of ‘my body, my choice’.

    The left is no longer a movement for justice and freedom from oppression, it is a movement for bullying and totalitarian control. Yet many feminists are still clinging to its coattails, wishful for what once was.

    An ideology that says individual responsibility, accountability for one’s own life and a desire for self-improvement are bad things is not an empowering ideology, or one that will lead to a better society. A political movement that says the world around you is responsible for all that ails you, and that society must accommodate bad behaviour from any individual claiming a marginalised identity, is destined for failure.

    In feminism, a lot of time is dedicated to asking why our movements, forums and activist groups quickly descend into infighting, drama and toxicity. During my time working with feminist collectives, it was always impossible to come to any decision. Meetings were often held hostage by narcissists who wished to make everything about their various afflictions and ‘trauma’, and who were willing to tear the group apart, seemingly just to test their power.

    All this is ingrained in the leftist approach now, where ‘Safe Spaces’ are prioritised over getting things done, and where being an ‘ally’ means publicly proclaiming solidarity or condemnation, regardless of one’s individual thoughts or opinions. Independent thought is treated as a threat.

    Any movement that treats those who achieve success, a platform or any form of power as traitors to be torn down and destroyed – or thinks that advocating for universal civil rights and liberties is ‘racist’, ‘misogynist’ or ‘transphobic’ – is not a movement ‘for the people’.

    I haven’t adopted any particularly ‘right-wing’ values – unless supporting freedom, independence and autonomy now places one on the right, in which case I’ll accept the label. Call me what you like, but I have not sold out – I have maintained my commitment to doing what I consider to be right and ethical, no matter how unpopular that makes me.
    If the stampman tells you to kiss his ass, shall he get away with it and live? Don't let your courage cool, or a few bullies scare you. We've nothing to fear but slavery. Love your liberty, and fight for it like men who know its value. Once lost it will never, never be regained.

    And note the "if you're white and your parents have a savings account [...]" bit.

    The targets of scams like the "Nigerian Prince" were the marks themselves.

    These scumbags, by contrast, are going after the marks' children.

    Can you say, "sugar babies"? Grooming and grifting - two birds, one stone.

    Remember that abolishing inheritance is a plank of the Communist Manifesto and is one of the few planks not already fulfilled.

    Just occasionally do a personal refresher on the Communist Manifesto and the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion to see what's in store for the near future (meaning what hasn't been completed yet).
