How Woke Are You? Here is a situation

Ok, a politician is at an event on stage, and someone from the audience rushes in to take the microphone away from said candidate to talk about their pet issue.

This is what I had in mind:

So here is my “woke quiz”: what do you think of this situation?

If you just say “someone rudely tried to co-opt someone else’s event to steal a captive audience …and perhaps said something about how rude the person was….
You get a “D”.

If you mention EITHER that the person interrupting is male and the person he interrupted and stole the microphone from is female OR if you mention that the interrupter is white and the person being interrupted is “of color”, you get a “C”.

If you mention a WHITE MALE interrupted a FEMALE OF COLOR, then you get a “B”.

If you mention what was said in the “B” answer AND note that he interrupted just when the candidate (Senator Harris, in this case) was talking about “equal pay for women”, then you get an “A”.

IF you think I am kidding…just look at the reactions on Twitter…instead of saying “kook rudely interrupts politician”, they say “white man interrupts “woman of color”:


If you mention that, yes, these kooks interrupt white males too and perhaps mention that this kook probably was unaware of what the Senator was saying, well, that is a micro-aggression.

Seriously: many liberals just cannot discuss anything without tossing in some victimization of a class interpretation (rather than a rude jerk co-opting someone else’s event). I believe such liberals to be our Bible Beaters…with a different canon.

Now if the kook is a conservative who is interrupting a protected minority…and even a female conservative…well…the woke answer is that this poor female internalized the misogyny of the patriarchy.
