...The immigrant to the U.S. from Mexico said she had no idea about conservatives' use of the word as a slam on liberal overreach.

"I'm a Mexican," Quiroga said. "I don't know anything about what 'woke' means to some people."

Residents, however, say divisions over the name have been heated.

"Just a word of warning, anymore ridiculous comments about the name of the new breakfast place in town will be deleted," the administrator of The Coventry CT Citizen's Open Forum on Facebook wrote Thursday....

In 20 years we've gone from

They can't have a Mosque at Ground Zero
to
They can't have a Woke Restaurant in our town.

Same people, same mindset.
They've self-radicalized.

Fine. More room at this place for folks who like good food. The Righties can take it to some fast food joint for fried coleslaw triple-decker cardiac arrest breakfast, with gravy and biscuits on the side. And don't forget the grits and butter, jerks...

#6......In Coventry Ct. people don't generally eat "grits" or "Biscuits and Gravy." Maybe today they might but when I was growing up nearby, I had to go to the southern states before "Grits" was on the menu. I do agree that the whole kerfuffle is stupid.

Republicans have turned the term "woke" into a trigger phase for their mind control subjects.

Fox has turned the word into a pavlovian trigger word. Instead of drool, there is rage.

It's easy to have a simple word for everything you hate.

It's easy to see how everything you hate flows from the same corrupted source.

It's easier than blaming your own problems on your own choices in life -- even as they blame other people's problems on other people's choices in life.

And it's a whole lot easier than changing yourself for the better.

Simple things for simple minds and simple people.
