Except for news and sports, virtually all the TV we watch is British, Australian and New Zealander. From 2006 to 2015, our absolutely favorite show was Lewis, a spin off of Morse, based on the novels of Colin Dexter.
Lewis was a Detective Inspector. His sidekick was Sgt. James Hathaway, played by Laurence Fox.
Fox, it turns out, IRL, is not only not woke, he's aggressively anti-woke, God bless him.
Fox was a guest on Tucker Carlson last night, showing a video he made of a UK army combat veteran being arrested for "causing anxiety." Fox says for, "not worshiping at the altar of the holy pride flag." Fox accused the British police of "bowing at the altar of 'wokery.'"
Interestingly, just yesterday, pb finished Thomas E. Ricks' book on Churchill and Orwell. It jumped to pb's attention because of the subtitle, "The Fight for Freedom."
Ricks makes the point that Orwell was a devout socialist who opposed what communism had become under Stalin's fascism.
Orwell believed in individual liberty and freedom of thought and, curiously, 50 years after he wrote Nineteen Eighty-four, he'd become a hero of conservatives.
pb makes the point, repeatedly, that what's happened to progressivism is a tragedy.
The causes of the progressives have become the source of oppression, a struggle to kill every free thought, and punish everyone who thinks an unorthodox thought...
...as is the case here.
Is it any wonder that people possessing common sense despise the wokery you progressives love.
