The Ukrainians are pretty progressive, and they seem quite competent against a non-woke army.

But he was a Pointer. So, a clueless f*ck.

Again a statement by a regressive that is instantly refuted by a very real example in the real world. AFAIK the Ukranian military is pretty damn woke and they're beating the everlovin' shiat out of the russians (who are very traditionally masculin and anti-woke) as we speak.

When is that butterball planning to re-up? And this time no military law clerk nonsense.  He needs to prove how incredibly unwoke he is and how he's effectively captain amerifat by leading from the front.

now this might strike some farkers as harsh, but I've heard it proposed that every one of these vicious, destructive assholes is beaten about the face with a chair... and I don't think we should be too quick to dismiss it.

Meaningless toxicana?

I like that expression (even if my automatic spellchecker hates it).

And yeah, I bet he got very excited when he realised "woke" and "weak" sound vaguely similar.

"Oooh, I can totally own the libs with this one!"

Who cares that the super masculine Russian military is getting ripped apart? Reality be damned.
 
2022-09-28 2:05:57 AM  
So he's saying the US military is weak? Because I seem to remember that they were pretty progressive when it came to integrating black soldiers.

I'm sure there are many other more recent examples.

It's still the meaning of the term, it's just that regressive backwards troglodytes like Mike Pompeo think that not being a regressive backwards troglodyte is a bad thing.

(Also, I don't think I could legitimately say that I was "woke" anytime before 2009, when I saw how Republicans reacted to a Black man in the White House. And even then, I think I hit the snooze button a few times.)

Sadly I think that's the main reason we're going through a lot of this.  So many of these trash humans' brains broke at the idea of a black man in the White House.  It definitely gave us Trump.

The Russians have been raging about the propaganda success of the likes of NAFO and NCD, two groups whose touchstones are:

For NAFO - low-resolution pictures of dogs.
For NCD - anthropomorphic femboy fighter jets.

Welcome to warfare in the Extremely Online world, Pompeo. A self-propelled artillery piece labeled the Superbonker 9000 with a shiba inu on the side will blow you up just as one with some manly-man imagery.

feel free to steal/use it, as I in turn steal/use any cool thing a farker leaves lying around.

the symmetry of eg that weak/woke (9th circle of hell Pompeo, where sinners are eternally ripped apart by Satan's teeth, mark my words) phrase- budget and pedestrian as it is- will unconsciously and consciously be seen as support for its veracity.
must be true... it's so neat and catchy

What's so striking is that russia seems to be so bad at both the PR game and the cyber game.  I expected them to have a huge army of memelords to unleash from day one.

They do, but Russia's propaganda is highly inflexible. It has exactly one note: Russia strong, Russia unbeatable. Which is fine when you're winning, but when you're retreating all over the place you're gonna look like Baghdad Bob. Even Russian Telegram channels filled with pro-war sorts have taken to openly mocking Russia's propaganda, both the official stuff and the weird array of Serbian nationalists/tankies/random edgelords flooding Z space.

Meanwhile, the Ukrainian Defense Ministry posts stupid memes and videos of soldiers dancing while firing howitzers. They've gotten far more propaganda (and morale) value out of wacky shiatposting than the Russians ever did from all of those super-serious videos of manly men doing manly things while bad metal plays in the background. Turns out that traditional, stone-faced masculinity doesn't win wars, being good at war does.

You SHOULD watch it, at least a small amount.  Knowing what disinformation you face and how Fox presents it to their audience actually helps us discuss it with people that belief the lies from Fox.  I find it useful in SMALL amounts.

The opposite of woke is ignorant.

I keep failing to see how this is supposed to be offensive or demeaning. It's just a bunch of old people and idiots announcing publicly that they're assholes.

I used to read the NewsHounds blog that kept track of what Fox News was saying, about 15-18 years ago.  Even such indirect exposure was unhealthy, and I had to quit.
