Twitter owner Elon Musk announced Monday that he is taking a stand against what he perceives as a “woke mind virus” prevalent in our society. It is easy to see why Musk thinks such a virus exists.


With racist critical race theory in our schools and the ramifications of wokeness’s historical revisionism in the public consciousness, it is hard to escape the effects of this ever-pervasive new ideology. Simply put, wokeness is anti-American and anti-human at its core. It is certainly foreign to America as envisioned by our founders.

“The woke mind virus is either defeated or nothing else matters,” Musk tweeted.

When a Twitter user replied “We are either in a mass awakening event or total collapse of society,” Musk responded “Exactly”

This is not the first time Musk has spoken up against wokeness. When New York Times employees announced a strike, Musk simply tweeted “Woke v Woke.”

Musk also clowned Twitter headquarters for containing a collection of shirts in a storage closet with the hashtag “#StayWoke” written on them.

As Musk noted, the hashtag campaign surrounded the police shooting of Michael Brown. Musk replied to this tweet citing an Obama Administration report that exonerated the officers involved in the shooting. Indeed, when journalist Andy Ngo replied “‘Hands up, don’t shoot’ is one of the biggest hoaxes to come from the American left in the last decade. That big lie has inspired many to become radicalized and militant,” Musk responded, “True.”

Earlier this year, Musk maintained the woke politics of Netflix was making the streaming service nearly unwatchable in 2022. Indeed, in 2021, he also slammed the “woke mind virus.”

Musk is justifiably upset at the infiltration of the radical left into all areas of our public life. You cannot escape wokeness in 2022 America. But fortunately for us, there is hope. More and more Americans are rejecting the left’s destructive ideology. With Musk helping to lead this new movement, the sky is truly the limit for the anti-woke movement we are seeing in the public consciousness.
