What Do The Woke All Have In Common?

Charles Pulliam-Moore of Gixzmondo on the temerity of a young black actress daring to express herself in a manner that doesn't conform to his own opinions:
What these celebrities have in common—beyond being household names in part because of their association with Disney—is that they’re all entitled to have their beliefs no matter how factually inaccurate, offensive, and rooted in bad faith they may be from the perspective of the general public.
Mahlon Romeo on Millwall fans booing the players who decided they were there to raise support for a Marxist political group rather than play football:
Romeo told the South London Press: “It’s something I can’t wrap my head around. People will have their beliefs and views, which everyone is entitled too (sic). I’m not trying to stop or contain – but if your beliefs and views oppose a positive change in society then don’t come to a football ground and spread them around. ”

It's that they really, genuinely believe that theirs is now 'the voice of the people'. Not of fringe lunatics.

I know you're probably not a football fan Julia so you might not know the reputation of millwall.
But this time they are spot on and speaking for the silent majority.

Oh, I'm aware it has one! But I think you're spot on here.
