Want to make sense of the “woke culture” that’s infected our nation like a cancer?
The key is to understand purveyors of wokeness are forever looking for new people to crown as victims. Without victims, the joyless “woke” can’t get their holier-than-thou fix as the hero for the severely oppressed.
Most members of the woke cult are unhappy, and miserable. Without new, fresh woke victims to brag about helping, their lives are meaningless.
Case in point. Republican Rep. Sara Rasmussen was all giddy and smiling ear to ear when Democrat Rep. Zack Fields complimented her body on the House floor.
The video shows Rasmussen not the least bit annoyed but instead woozy over Fields’ flattery.
Fields said Rasmussen created a traffic hazard in her district when she wears short skirts. He then offered to buy her a pair of sweatpants to make the streets of her district safer.
The idea is Rasmussen’s body is so smoking hot, drivers will take their eyes off the road and crash.
“When you watch Ms. Rasmussen’s reaction to Fields in the heat of the moment, she smiles, she’s giggling,” conservative activist and never afraid to speak her mind, Bernadette Wilson observed. “She’s just, oh thank you, oh my goodness, and she takes it as a compliment.”
After the woke crowd made a big deal of Fields’ comments, Rasmussen went from giddy and all flush to aggrieved and oppressed.
“There’s still a lot that needs to be done to change our culture and respect women at the same level that men are already respected naturally,” said Rasmussen about Fields’ remarks.
The beauty of Fields’ comments is they came following Rasmussen giving an “I am woman, hear me roar” speech quoting none other than the queen of wokeness and abortion, former Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Rasmussen’s speech also announced the leggy legislator was forming a women’s caucus with uber leftist and fellow House member Ivy Spohnholz.
Wilson says Rasmussen got it right the first time when Fields’ remarks clearly didn’t offend her.
Wilson, like Rasmussen, is easy on the eyes and obviously gets her fair share of compliments and not just about her giant brain.
“The question I have for women is this,” asks Wilson. “Get over yourself when someone makes a comment about how pretty you are, or you look nice in that outfit. Quit thinking there is some sexist motive behind it.”
Wilson argues a man complimenting a woman on her appearance does not mean he thinks she’s stupid.
“Why is it when someone comments on your appearance you suddenly get so self-conscience to think they now don’t value their brain,” asked Wilson.
But this is where we are now. The Leftist steeped in wokeness continually manufacture new victims. Compliment women? You sexist pig!
“I’m sorry, ladies, but there is something very admirable about the feminine side of you, “said Wilson. “You don’t need to disown it. You don’t need to think the feminine side of you is not as worthy as the intellectual side of you.”
In the big picture, Fields’ innocuous comments about the attractiveness of Rasmussen’s legs is nothing more than a distraction and yet another example of how humorless and judgmental members of the woke cult can be.
The real story here is Rasmussen’s full turn to the dark side joining and enabling Democrats.
Offended or fake offended, Rasmussen has betrayed her constituents after running as a conservative. She has become anything but.
