The radical Left is getting bolder in its demands for conformity.
People are being forced to actively participate in progressive propaganda . . . or else.
Now one city employee was fired for not giving one “woke” movie salute.
Totalitarian regimes demand that people tow the line, and the “woke” Left is becoming increasingly Stalinist in its tactics.
In the wake of George Floyd’s death, leftists implored everyone on social media to post black squares in solidarity.
Those who didn’t were viewed with skepticism.
The same is happening in institutions around the country.
And a Department of Education employee in New York City was allegedly fired, in part, because she refused to do a salute from the Marvel comic book film “Black Panther.”
Karen Ames was forced out of her job as a Bronx superintendent after 30 years, and she’s suing for discrimination.
The New York Post reports, “Ames was grilled about her ‘ethnic background,’ chastised by a colleague at a training session when she shared her grandparents’ experience during the Holocaust in Poland, and ‘admonished’ when she declined requests at superintendents meetings to take part in the comic book movie-inspired ‘Wakanda Forever’ salute to ‘black power,’ she charges in the legal filing.”
Joseph Stalin reportedly dragged audience members off to the gulag if they didn’t applaud him long enough.
America is being infested with the same ideas that led to the Soviet Union and Maoist China.
Ames supposedly wasn’t a part of the new “Disrupt and Dismantle” initiative for education.
And according to Ames’ lawsuit, a colleague named Rasheda Amon told Ames, “You better check yourself” when she talked about her grandparents losing two children during the Holocaust.
Ames alleges Amon said to her, “That is not about being Jewish! It’s about black and brown boys of color only.”
Ames also contends in her lawsuit that the New York City school system is making a big push to go full “woke”:
“The agenda . . . was euphemistically touted as an ‘equity platform’ but in reality, it was a platform used to create gender, age, racial and ethnic divisions in the NYC School system.”
The radicals will continue to advance until people step up and tell them “no.”
These leftists extremists are a small percentage of the population.
They rely on people being compliant and not wanting to rock the boat.
But there won’t be a boat if these radicals get their way.
