The Tide Has Turned Against Wokeville Worldwide

AMAC Exclusive – By Tammy Bruce

As a former leftist, I can tell you that the best way to gauge the woke strategy of the left is to watch what’s happening in San Francisco and London. In both cities, there is little pushback by opponents and they tend to serve as petri dishes for the left’s cancerous agenda. So when the left’s agenda begins to fail in these supposedly liberal utopias, it’s our first sign that the tide is turning against the fearmongers, censors, bullies, and wokesters.

San Franciscans sent the world a message when they recalled three progressive school board members and their far-left district attorney. However, the nefarious agenda of the left isn’t reserved just for the United States, and much like here, there are signs that the people of England have had enough of the left’s absurd social justice nonsense.

In this glorious example of how the rejection of the woke left is becoming universal, England is now stepping up with a new law mandating that new buildings housing offices must include single-sex bathrooms. For a country that has been putting up with forced-sharing of bathrooms euphemistically called “gender-neutral” facilities, the British have had enough.

The New York Post reported, “A British government source told The Telegraph: ‘It is vital that women feel safe and comfortable when using public facilities and that there is a greater emphasis on provision that is focused on dignity, privacy, tolerance, and respect for all.’ The paper reported that ministers are likely to present the new policies as a ‘common sense’ way to impede the recent trend in which gender-neutral bathrooms have become standard in newly constructed buildings.”

Common sense indeed. And an undeniable statement to the bullies on the left that the genuflecting is over.

Another UK news site, Metro, added about the new law, “The change was reportedly spurred after a number of women raised concerns about the lack of privacy in gender-neutral toilets in public buildings. Campaigners Fair Play for Women claim same-sex facilities ‘disadvantage’ women. ‘Many women and girls are unwilling to walk past the urinals to get to the cubicles in the former men’s facilities,’ they told the government.”

How bad has our situation been? Consider I’m writing a column praising a government for acknowledging and acting on the fact that men and women must have separate bathroom facilities. It’s a pathetic situation but ending this madness, and all other Marxist woke manifestations, must be a priority for Western civilization as a whole.

But England isn’t done. In what is being called the biggest PR blunder in British banking history, the social media team for the British banking brand Halifax thought it was a good idea to announce on Twitter that its employees would have their pronouns listed on their name badges. They explained this was necessary to keep people from accidentally “misgendering” their staff.

Let’s just say that their customers’ reaction on social media was swift and not complimentary, further proving that enough is enough everywhere on the wokeism front. The Daily Mail reports, “The row began this week when Halifax, which was propped up by the taxpayer to the tune of £30billion as part of a 2008 bailout, tweeted its 118,000 followers on Tuesday revealing that it would allow staff to display their pronouns on their name badges, in a post that read ‘pronouns matter’.”        

After being roasted on social media by furious customers, a tweet from Halifax appeared just 20 minutes later, smugly stating, “We strive for inclusion, equality and quite simply, doing what’s right. If you disagree with our values, you’re welcome to close your account,” signed by an AndyM.

Halifax should be taking a hint at what Netflix understands about alienating your customer base—it’s not exactly the best business practice. As fast as you can say ‘canceled!’ it became clear people were taking Andy up on his suggestion. “One customer has transferred £1,100 from his credit card to another company today, and said: ‘I’ve closed my account….sick to death of woke’. Former Doctor Who scriptwriter… a Halifax customer since 1988, told the bank: ‘I’m a homosexual man. I’m appalled by your adoption of this homophobic, woman-hating’” nonsense while another “closed his account due to the bank’s ‘antics with pronouns,’” reported the newspaper.

And it appears it’s not just a gaggle of 20-something social justice activists undermining the bank via its social media account. On their website, they actually threaten to close the accounts of people they deem ‘transphobic’ and even threaten to turn those people in to the police.

“On its website, Halifax says any customers they deem to be ‘transphobic’ could have their accounts closed. Underneath a page titled ‘what we stand for,’ they say: ‘We stand against discrimination and inappropriate behaviour in all forms, whether racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic or ableist, regardless of whether this happens in our branches, offices, over the phone or online on our social media channels. Such action may include account closure or contacting the police if necessary,” reported the Daily Mail.

Wow, aren’t they the superior Thought Police ready to turn you in for Wrongspeak! It’s madness, yes, and a perfect example of the destruction the left would bring to every business it infects, no matter the country, city, or industry. It also highlights the antidote of customers and citizens speaking up, rejecting, and condemning it. Let’s hope the people, from San Francisco to London, continue to show everyone the way out of the leftist abyss.

I hope Halifax loses all their customers and is forced to close it’s doors. I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to yank all of my money out if I banked there. This type of woke-ism is utterly ignorant. The woke can say it all they want, but it doesn’t make it true, women are women and men are men, and ONLY women can give birth to a child! I’m sickened to the point of anger with this nonsense!

It is so good to see that the citizens of San Francisco and London are getting back on track and putting wokeism down. The entirety of the USA and Great Britain should join in and while we are at it, let us put God back in our countries. Then we should begin to once again prosper!

Some far left radicals claim that there are at least 35 different identifiable sexes. These deniers of nature and science are totally insane. Most people do not want to waste their time learning all the different ways to address fringe individuals. For bathrooms, give 4 choices: Male, Female, Family, and Everyone. Hopefully, the title “Everyone” is acceptable to even the most fanatic, far leftie.

glad some sanity is coming back.

I still want to understand why the people on the left every thought that a personal choice of sexual activity or medical treatment should be an social issue.

Why must we accept the gay or trans persons choice to be or do as they wish but at the same time be forced to have experimental drugs with massive side effect injected into us? these same people who pushed the vaccine to the point of kicking people out of hospitals and out of restaurants scream my body my choice about abortion when clearly a child’s body is also involved! These same people want cigarettes and vaping banned: what happened to my body my choice? they also want marijuana legalized: what happen tot he health concerns of smoking?

How do those thing make sense together in the liberals, democrats, progressives mind? I don;t care if you for or against anything including abortion, but the logic of the combined ideas confuses the hell out of me.

I can only guess that all liberals, democrats, progressives are either very low IQ or they are all mentally ill. I really can not think up a third option.

Maybe one of you liberal can explain.

Good news and good article. Unfortunately, much of what happens now will point to the one world government that will rule for a short period. Antichrist will head up this government and seem like a wonderful leader. In fact, people who don’t know scripture will mistake him for the real Christ. A world wide church will be in place that will include almost anything a person wants to believe. Three and a half years into his leadership, the antichrist will reveal himself by having his statue placed in the new temple in Jerusalem. He will then demand to be worshiped, and the mark of the beast will be required for people to buy and sell. He will show his true colors by breaking a peace treaty with Israel. As Billy Graham said, now is the time of decision. The ones who wait to ask Christ to be their savior during this time will suffer greatly. This is all in the bible, much of it in the book Revelation. God loves everyone, but will only save the ones who ask His Son for salvation.

God created man and woman. Period, zip, end of discussion. God will also judge those who’ve perverted His creation. Especially those who’ve deliberately brain washed innocent children, teens, many of whom have committed suicide…and the millions of unborn creations never allowed to see the light of day. God the Creator has been the picture of forgiveness for thousands of years to those who truly turn away from this grotesque sickness and evil…but that time is growing shorter…some day, and NO one knows the time, that patience will come to a frightening end for many, and a glorious beginning for others.

I’m going to be completely politically INCORRECT now. I know several black people who do NOT support BLM and several LGBTQ individuals who are absolutely fine NOT flaunting their lifestyle on anyone else. Based on current television commercials and print ads, since WHEN did our population become primarily black and LGBTQ? If you watch the commercials and/or read the ads, you’d swear the VAST majority of our country is either black or LGBTQ. This is ridiculous and just shows the stupidity of the “woke” companies, because it makes me NOT want to buy anything from them. Let’s go Brandon!

England has done a complete turn around since they outlawed Homosexuals in the 1930’s & 40’s. Men convicted of homosexual activity were arrested and sometimes castrated. If there was ever going to be a separation of State and “something” it should be State and Sexual preferences. None your Business as long as two consenting parties. Praying common sense comes back into fashion.

I go with the idea that if all the sane normal people stick together and refuse to play these idiotic games, they’ll have to stop. It’s just another tactic for splitting us up as a people and a country. Keep the people at each other’s throats and the people won’t notice the government stealing us blind both literally and figuratively.
I hope Halifax doesn’t have a depositor left by the end of business tomorrow.

Could someone please break it to Joe that the party is over and we are all going home now. Maybe he could celebrate by opening some pipe lines, canceling all of his Executive Orders, letting all the Jan. 6 people being held in the D.C. jail without bail and no trial date out. Maybe close the gate on the southern border, get politics out of the F.B.I. Obama said never under estimate how bad Joe Biden could f things up. Probably the smartest thing he ever said. In the last 20 years none of these fads last long, all this woke B.S will pass, but who knows what we will move on to next.

The woke called for inclusion and there was no inclusion for other people. The woke called for tolerance and they had no tolerance for others. The woke called for safety and yet they allowed the destruction of others property and the smearing of thousands of dedicated police officers who put their lives on the line every day to protect the public. The woke called for equality and yet they want only their opinions and voices to be heard. The woke called for respect but they have only hatred. for those who disagree with them. Folks are seeing the bullying and the hypocrisy of the woke crowd. It’s about time.

Homosexuals were once a group of people who “begged” for acceptance and tolerance. But today, thanks to the depraved Democrat Party and mainstream media, they are getting away with wielding “inclusiveness” as their way to tyrannically dominate our society. It’s bad enough they want to homosexualize our very young children, they also want to pollute our vernacular with their ludicrous and moronic pronouns. Who the heck do they think they are? They are FRINGE! Why are we even allowing them to pervade our lives with their audacious shameless perversions? I am sick of this.

I agree with Ziggy’s comments!
I was raised in the Deep South where family values were taught and respected along with morals for society. Queers were looked upon as outcast and criminals were punished for their crimes!
Why were queers outcast you may ask, because people believed in the holy bible and the book of Leviticus chapter 20 verse 13 tells us what God thinks of the sin of homosexuality! Man may change, but God is the same today as he was yesterday! God intended for a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman!

This is great news! When I am in a store and go to use the bathroom and I come upon two bathrooms that have become “gender neutral “ I make sure I don’t go into the one that has a urinal in it. I’d rather wait in line for the one that used to be women only!
