Woke Madness Reigns In California

24 11 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

California is a beautiful state in which some of us were born and raised—and have loved all of our lives, even when our journeys have taken us elsewhere.  Many of us attended its colleges, and worked there; and have traveled the state from its northern border with Oregon to Mexico in the south.

Years ago, we were charmed by its Spanish and Mexican heritages, traditions and cultures; and by the Chumash and other Indian tribes who lived and fished along its coast, and traveled inland to farm.  The lovely Mission San Antonio de Padua is an example of these historic roots.[2]

Today the state is polluted by woke ideology that is destroying it.  The latest example involves the banning of all gas and diesel truck fleets, which is patently absurd.[3]  Truckers are just recovering from the damaging effects of the Coronavirus pandemic on their work, followed by high fuel prices.  Yet, the totally-woke and despicable eco-Nazis want to hurt them even more.

Truck stops should be open, but they are closed on Highway 101 in Central California where they are needed most to give drivers much-needed rests while they are away from their homes and families.  And the height of woke madness is that a nuclear power plant along the coast was scheduled to be shut down, but it is now being given a new lease on life because it is considered essential to meet existing and future energy needs.[4]

With water being critical to the state’s agricultural and everyday needs, desalination plants have opened and closed, next to the Pacific Ocean, which constitutes more madness.[5]  And then there are the issues of crime and homelessness, which are rampant in the state.[6]  Ultimately the word “woke” seems to be inextricably linked to and synonymous with the word “wackos,” and correctly so.

San Francisco is overrun with crime and filth, yet its election director is fired for being white, which is reflective of woke madness and discrimination.
