Fox News contributor Emily Compagno did not mince her words this week when discussing “wokeness” corrupting every aspect of America and its institutions.
During a segment on Gutfeld, Compagno, Dagen Powell, and Greg Gutfeld slammed liberals for being more worried about using someone’s correct pronouns when America is last in subjects like science and geology.
“Because we were bored, we reached out to Hasbro for comment. They said in part: ‘Project Veritas’ report mischaracterizes Hasbro and our values. The reference session was not mandatory training; it was an optional webinar attended by a small group of employees.’ There is a word I hate. ‘As always, the views expressed by external speakers are their own and do not reflect the views of the company.’ Translation: ‘We invited these overpaid speakers so our enlightened diversity distracts activists from our evil binary toys.’ Meanwhile, at Change.org, a petition making the rounds among academics is calling for a ‘Robust anti-racism plan for the geosciences.’ Yes, even rocks are racist,” Gutfeld said.
“The petition theorizes, ‘Whereas a white geologist with a rock hammer will be seen as safe, a black geologist may be seen as a threat.’ (Laughter) It’s confusing to most Americans who have never actually seen a rock hammer. But it’s like they always say, if the only tool you have is a hammer, then everything becomes a nail. Which is still no reason for me to hang out nude at Ace Hardware. But it’s true, what I just said. I don’t remember what I said, Emily, but it was true,” Gutfeld added.
“I feel like this is the prime example of what is wrong with everything in academia right now, which is while the professors and the learned people in every subject are worried about pronouns and worrying about what might happen, and this is why we have to change text and language, American children are last in the entire galaxy for science scores and geology scores and the like,” Compagno began.
“If they are really worried about diversity in this field, then Why Don’t We go back to school choice? Why Don’t We go back to quality public education? Why Don’t We go back to a lot of other things that might actually help that in a qualitative sense rather than some rando talking about this hypothetical?” Compagno asked.
The entire segment is certainly worth a watch.

Woke academia is a result of woke ideologies that have been gaining steam for many years.
That ideology flourished in large part because Democrats and their allies in the media have convinced many people that everything is racist and must move even further to the political Left.
Whether it’s corporations, colleges, Hollywood moves and shows, and so many other institutions in America.
Things have gotten increasingly worse and it’s hard to imagine what things will look like in 10 to 20 years.
