School boards and the NBA are in the top 10 of the “worst revivals”

School boards and the NBA have joined an annual list of the top 10 “worst awake” institutions that have shown intolerance in the name of tolerance last year.

Other additions to the 2022 list include Apple, American Express, Georgetown University and the Olympics, the conservative New Tolerance Campaign announced this week.

“Woke claims to be a way of seeing the world that recognizes social ills, but in practice it has become a catch-all for pushing leftist politics on everything from climate to sexuality, to gender, to funding for police, etc,” Gregory T Angelo, chairman of the New Tolerance campaign, said in an email. “So in that sense, the real definition of woke is ‘wrong’.”

Nonpartisan school boards are on the list of people who have pushed cultural agendas forward, urging affected parents to run for office and replace them, the watchdog group said.

The group included the National Basketball Association for canceling Election Day games, downplaying its close business relationship with communist China and cutting Chinese critic Enes Kanter Freedom from league rosters.

The New Tolerance Campaign also named Penguin Books its ‘True Tolerance Champion’ this year for resisting pressure from a ‘woke crowd’ to cancel Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s book deal. .

Various companies and non-profit groups rounded out the rest of the “worst revival” list.

The International Olympic Committee did so to mislead viewers about tennis star Peng Shuai’s well-being and keep quiet about China’s human rights record during the Winter Olympics in Beijing. Beijing.

American Express and Apple made the top 10 for promoting racial and gender preferences in their corporate policies.

And the group flagged Georgetown University for suspending libertarian constitutional scholar Ilya Shapiro for a Jan. 26 tweet predicting the Biden administration would appoint “a lesser black woman” to the Supreme Court.

Other institutions — Disney, BlackRock, Twitter and the American Civil Liberties Union — made the top 10 for the second straight year.

The past year has been marked by the backsliding of woke institutions, said Mr. Angelo, former leader of the gay Log Cabin Republicans.

“Disney was stripped of its favorite status in Florida, Olympics ratings hit an all-time high and Elon Musk took a sledgehammer to censor Twitter following an aggressive takeover,” Mr Angelo said. “It was the year that woke up got a wake up call.”
