A Rundown Of Woke Insanity
America is in the midst of a new cultural civil war that for years has been brewing under the surface as left-wing academics breed aggressively woke children now permeating throughout the nation’s mainstream institutions.
Since the killing of George Floyd at the knees of a Minneapolis police officer sparked the worst outbreak of civil unrest in decades, protests that grew out of demanding justice for Floyd morphed into a dark operation to fundamentally transform the nation’s psyche, convincing the people of their own inherent evil from ancestral wrongs.
Battle lines are clearly being drawn, where the radical left has offered Americans a binary choice in a false dichotomy between total submission or unrelenting exile with those opposed to the new woke world order cast out of society as unrepentant racists refusing to atone for past generations’ sins. No justice, no peace. Silence is violence. You’re either with us, or against us. There is no middle ground. Which side of history are you on?
Of course in reality, (and sanity), it’s clearly not that black and white, but if recent events show us anything, they expose that this mentality is no longer one of a fringe left-wing movement but a central tenant of our mainstream culture of what it means to make “progress.” America, according to the now only acceptable narrative, is an irredeemably racist society that was built for the sole purpose to oppress. It has never been great. Anyone who thinks otherwise, is as guilty as the slaveholders who lived more than 150 years ago.
For as long as the nation continues to go mad, purging books, movies, statues and history in its own cultural revolution launched by woke elites, The Federalist will be chronicling its destruction, updating this list with each new event in its collapse. The Federalist will also be keeping tally of those fired from lack of allegiance to the new woke overlords found here.

NPR: Your Books Are Racist
It seems NPR has skipped right to the book-burning phase of the American woke revolution urging individuals to “decolonize” their bookshelves in an effort to rewrite the nation’s past.
In essence, “decolonizing your bookshelf” is about actively resisting and casting aside the colonialist ideas of narrative, storytelling, and literature that have pervaded the American psyche for so long, says @itsjuanlove. https://t.co/pbSBx8Z4So

Coronavirus Is Woke-Sensitive
On June 1, dozens of public health experts signed an open letter blaming white supremacy on societal illnesses applauding the protestors for combating the true pandemic without regard for the novel Wuhan coronavirus that shut down the nation causing irreparable damage in the process.
“As public health advocates, we do not condemn these gatherings as risk for COVID-19 transmission… This should not be confused with a permissive stance on all gatherings, particularly protests against stay-home orders,” they wrote.
In other words, protests are fine as long as they remain in the name of social justice. Any other form of expression however, must be banned, for public health that is. Surely that’s a convincing message to the millions of Americans forced down to food pantries because the government deemed their life’s work as non-essential, or to the families unable to say goodbye to loved ones because funerals of more than 10 people were too dangerous.
So it turns out viruses are woke-sensitive. If you are protesting against racism, you won’t get Covid-19 or spread it to others. However, If you are protesting the lockdown so you can work or open your business, you are a murderer who is selfishly spreading Covid. #science pic.twitter.com/0McBofRGtr

You Can’t Go To Church But You Can Burn Down The Church
As millions of Americans flocked the nation’s city streets in righteous protests, the rest of the country has been forced to remain locked down despite its leaders joining in on the massive gatherings violating their own social distancing orders, but the media doesn’t seem to care.
In fact, the double standard is even encouraged, where reporters cry danger over sitting next to one another for a White House press briefing after celebrating their own presence amidst a sea of social justice warriors.

Meanwhile, NBC News allegedly directed its reporters at one point not to use the term “riot” to describe the spontaneous combustion of buildings, and just as a warlord was in the process of taking over Seattle, CNN’s Brian Stelter dedicated an entire newsletter to “the riot lie.”
Make no mistake, the list of reporters downplaying the violence is virtually endless, but this video just about sums it up:
“This mostly a protest. It is not, generally speaking, unruly.
But fires have been started.”
