Star Trek icon William Shatner, who played Captain Kirk in Star Trek: The Original Series, took to Twitter to explain what “woke” means.

The conversation started when Shatner responded to a now deleted tweet criticizing millennials for striking individuals from history who have been deemed “intolerable” by them.

Shatner wrote:


“Those children who grew up in that kinder gentler world use Presentism to remove books, have decided that any historical figure who has done things that by today’s society are intolerable should be struck from history. How is the next gen going to learn from past mistakes?”


Shatner would double down explaining that he finds it “utterly ridiculous” that individuals would attempt to use presentism, the idea of interpreting past events with current day values and concepts, in order to erase individuals views because they don’t adhere to current day PC culture.



Given the original Tweet he was responding to was deleted, Shatner clarified that it “was a threat that Millennials could erase my past work.”

Shatner also explains it was in reference to Laura Ingalls Wilder and the Wilder Award which was renamed. According to the New York Times the award was changed in 2018 by The American Library Association because of “culturally insensitive portrayals in her books.”

The American Library Association specifically stated that the award was changed to “align the award’s title with the ALSC’s core values.” Those core values are “inclusiveness, integrity, respect, and responsiveness.”



Shatner continued that the Library association made the change due to complaints.



That’s when Shatner would explain what “woke” really means. He writes, “To be woke is to be uniformed which is exactly the opposite of what it stands for.”



What do you make of Shatner’s definition of woke? What about his defense against presentism?

Honestly it's pretty shocking that a guy who is friends with Mancow would have these views.

The popularity of the word "cancelled" is like, equal parts hilarious and despair inducing for me. It's so unbelievably removed from anything like an understanding of material conditions. Had PC cultut run smoke? Best dude

Yeah there's a whole Street Fight /w Felix from Chapo podcast from last month about him. Now all of us non-Chicago people know who he is.

Well, after listening to the Street Fight Radio series "Shocktober" on patreon I know quite a bit about him. The guy seems to be a pretty genuine Christian. He was raised in a Christian home and even thought about becoming a preacher before deciding to become the worst, dumbest, zero talent having radio broadcaster of all time. So yeah he's doing a lot of Christian shit now. The guy is so dang Christian that he did this:

Mancow Muller attended Harvest Bible Chapel from 2014 to 2019 and was a personal friend of Pastor James MacDonald since 2016. In November 2018 Muller travelled to Israel with Pastor James Macdonald where Pastor James baptized him in the Jordan River. Less than 2 months later in January 2019 and less than 3 weeks after starting his new radio show on WLS-Chicago, Mancow began calling Pastor James a con artist on his show and on social media sites, and asking him to resign or be removed as pastor.[41] Mancow has consistently criticized and accused Macdonald of crimes since January 2019, including murder-for-hire in May, 2019.[42][43]

If that guy had the perfect opportunity to drown Mancow in the Jordan River and passed it up then I'm gonna give him the benefit of the doubt on the criminal accusations.
