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.

Isn’t it refreshing when people finally SEE the truth for what it is. Humanity is waking up from “wokeism” and doesn’t like forced mandates. Freedom WILL prevail when we see it as priority.

At least Netflix has communicated to their employees that if they don’t like what Netflix is promoting perhaps that is not the company you want to work for. Bravo Netflix!!!!! If only these other companies would follow suit!!!!! GO WOKE, GO BROKE!!!!!!!

The socialists will never be happy and it will never be enough even when everyone is equally miserable and whack as they are.

the pushback against this woke clap trap is long overdue. One can only hope the woke corporations get the memo that if they turn off enough customers and drive them away, they will eventually go out of business. In other words, go woke go broke.

I agree with Tammy Bruce. I can feel a shift to sanity. Thank President Trump and a handful of his loyal supporters in the Congress, Senate and legitimate media for having the courage to rip the blinders off and awaken people to the truth about the Democrat/Marxist agenda.

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!

If “Wokism” is going away, we have yet to see any sign of it in WA state.

I was booted off Twitter in 2016 for posting a NY Times article about how the Clinton Foundation got millions from Russians after signing off on Uranium One. I was booted off You Tube in 2020 for posting about Hunters computer. Now I live in the Real World instead of online arguing with a leftist cesspool. And I still VOTE…

I so admire Tammy Bruce for taking a common sense approach to these principles, especially in view of her personal lifestyle preferences. I hope your perspective helps convince others to adopt your wisdom.

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!

I suggest actually telling the woke companies WHY you are no longer doing business with them. Don’t leave room for them to attribute it to something else.

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.
