Blaming the Woke Twitter Mob for Reactionary Politics, Part 45,608:

Random, powerless people being mean to you on Twitter, and I can’t stress this enough, is not evidence of hegemonic power or ascendant cultural dominance. Flip through the TV stations or YouTube stream or pop into the local cineplex, and it’s a hodgepodge of cop-worship, Army co-produced blockbuster franchise vehicles, Hallmark MAGA movies, and aggressively inoffensive high-key lit sitcoms. Where are the great Woke Struggle Sessions I hear so much about? Chase Bank ads with hijabs? Too many interracial couples in Geico commercials? I’m truly perplexed about where these people think power lies.
