• Jacobin: Wokeism Is a Loser For Democrats

    Occidental Dissent - Nov 9th 2021 10:53am EST (Archive)

    As the Democrats fight over the role that Wokeism played in the 2021 election results, the socialists at Jacobin have a new study out called “Commonsense Solidarity” which shows that woke language is a loser with working class voters – especially woke moderate language – who prefer a more class-based, universal populist pitch centered on […]

  • Brian Stelter: Slogans Make You Stop Thinking

    Occidental Dissent - Nov 7th 2021 1:11pm EST (Archive)

    I don’t think it is super complicated, Brian. White parents are opposed to the teacher’s unions indoctrinating their kids in Wokeism. CRT isn’t taught in K-12 public schools, but that is a dodge. It is like saying Catholic or Calvinist theology isn’t taught in Catholic schools when kids are being taught lessons based on Catholicism […]

  • CNN: Don Lemon Defends Wokeism and Cancel Culture

    Occidental Dissent - Nov 5th 2021 6:08pm EDT (Archive)

    It goes well beyond elections. Wokeism suppresses the legitimacy of all institutions and particularly the mainstream media. It suppresses the audience of Star Trek: Discovery and Hollywood award shows. Over half of Southern Republicans would support dissolving the Union. Clearly, they don’t grasp the breadth and depth of the resentment that they are creating. Powered […]

  • NBC Narratives: Democrats Struggles With Rural and White Voters Hurt Them In 2021

    Occidental Dissent - Nov 4th 2021 4:44pm EDT (Archive)

    Duh. As a White Southern Christian male rural voter and Independent voter, I am not in the least bit surprised by those “Assad-like margins.” The Democratic message to White men was essentially “we hate you” and “you are the root of evil in the world” and you are to blame for “white supremacy” and systematic […]

  • TAC: Don’t Be Too Happy Glenn Youngkin Won

    Occidental Dissent - Nov 4th 2021 10:44am EDT (Archive)

    I’m glad that Terry McAuliffe lost. I’ve explained my reasoning. No politician in the country inflicted more damage on the organized movement than McAuliffe through his control of the Virginia State Police in Charlottesville. We have also continued to see a meaningful difference between the two parties in how Democratic governors have coddled BLM and […]

  • James Carville: Wokeism Crushed The Democrats

    Occidental Dissent - Nov 4th 2021 9:18am EDT (Archive)

    James Carville has been right about this for months. He also has the best take that I have seen anywhere on the 2021 election results. The Republicans didn’t do anything to recapture power in these races except harness another round of backlash politics. The Republicans just allowed Democrats to “pull the pin and watch the […]

  • Merrick Garland Gets Roasted On Capitol Hill

    Occidental Dissent - Oct 27th 2021 6:08pm EDT (Archive)

    This was good political theater. Progressives no longer believe in the First Amendment. If you think this was heated, you have to wonder what Cotton and Hawley’s constituents think about Merrick Garland’s despotism back home. What are those folks thinking?

  • Bill Maher: Time for a National Divorce

    Occidental Dissent - Oct 23rd 2021 10:24am EDT (Archive)

    If you are willing to knuckle under and accept the following as the new elite consensus, the United States can be preserved in its current form: White men will be demonized on the basis of their race and sex Free speech is harm and “trauma” Every major institution in the United States has been captured […]

  • Bari Weiss: We Got Here Because of Cowardice. We Get Out With Courage

    Occidental Dissent - Oct 19th 2021 12:09pm EDT (Archive)

    Yes, I know this is Bari Weiss in Commentary. As with Tucker Carlson, Weiss is saying all kinds of things that are true here. None of it is original. This is all understood by millions of people. She is describing “woke supremacy.” Commentary: “It begins by stipulating that the forces of justice and progress are […]

  • The Democrats Have a Brat Problem

    Occidental Dissent - Oct 13th 2021 10:44am EDT (Archive)

    The short answer: yes. Speaking for myself, I actually do hate these people, which is reflected in how much more I write about my dislike of them. David Shor: “Shor observes that “We’ve ended up in a situation where white liberals are more left wing than Black and Hispanic Democrats on pretty much every issue: […]
