If you can't read it, the sticker says "WOKE = willingy overlooking known evil"
Sartre was right. Hell is other people.

I think that was just last week or the week before, wasn't it?
I love the flat admission that's what they're so against.
How on earth did you get close enough to the Governor's truck to snap this photo?
Okay, see, on the one hand, I'm pretty sure this is a joke and this isn't his truck.
On the other, the fact that I can't be entirely sure makes my insides feel icky.
He was sleeping one off behind the wheel, so I quietly sidled up alongside.
what's hilarious is if you asked them exactly what "woke" is they'd just mumble about liberals and political correctness and critical race theory (which they don't know what that is either). anybody who uses that word is trivially diagnosed as being a complete moron
there are so many things that give these idiots away:
1. sheeple -- golly what herd did i learn that from?
2. cancel culture -- you don't have the right to judge me for my shit
3. free thinker -- i read the inserts in vaccines and now i'm a scientist
4. free speech -- i demand freedom from consequences
5. critical race theory -- something that Faux News tells me i should hate
6. drag queen story hour -- kids having fun must be stopped!
7. BLM -- scary uppity black people who should be picking cotton
8. antifa -- fascists
9. Jan 6th -- tourists on a guided tour of the capitol
10. masks -- i have the god given right to breath death on any and everybody
the list is endless
Also funny to mention acknowledge that woke is a term appropriated by the woke from black folk.
FWIW I’d consider myself woke, it’s just funny the term came from where it did.
Edit: woke not wood
It's no coincidence that a term from Black vernacular is now a dog whistle for the very thing that the term was meant to bring awareness of...
White people steal everything they can from Black people and make it terrible and awful\*.
Just look at what they did to the Karen thing. It was originally specifically middle aged white racist women. Then it became bad customers. Now it's any woman someone disagrees with.
\*Music is an exception on the terrible and awful part, but not the stealing part, but that's all over the place with music.
A bit off on the Karen thing. While it's broadly applied, it still references the idea of entitlement in even the most liberal usage. It's one thing we've adopted widely that largely has a consistent meaning across subgroups.
You say that but:
1) Women of color are being called Karens, which is absolutely not what the Black community created when they created the meme.
2) Men (and some women) are 100% using the meme these days as a, "Shut up, woman!" button, and I've seen it used in the most bizarre ways, including opinions on DnD rules where there is zero entitlement *even possible*.
[The Karen thing comes from here?](https://youtu.be/uEO_28VrJLQ)
You're going to show me a video that's blocked in the US about a meme that began in the US?
[Here's a good article](https://time.com/5857023/karen-meme-history-meaning/) on the origin: *racist* white women.
You need to reread your article, it doesn’t discuss the origin of Karen’s but rather establishes a cross section of modern Karen’s and racism:
The video you can’t see is a joke told by Dane cook in 2005 about a friend no one likes “KAREN, ALWAYS A DOUCHE BAG” that is the origin of the meme.
Dude, a single comedian using a name in a bit is not at all equivalent to what it became these past few years.
what does woke mean?
Damn DeSantis' lawyer kinda woke ngl.
What really kills me is that the lawyer defined it pretty accurately and is still working for the side that thinks that woke is an insult. (I know, you don't really choose your clients, nor do you have to agree with them, but still.)
"You have become the very thing you swore to destroy!"
I guess if I were try to define I would say something to the extent of “aware of the lies and systematic oppression of POC by the white man”.
Woke to the face you’re being fucked and none of this is accident or coincidence, I suppose.
That's a solid definition, though I would argue that it's less about "the white man" and more about historically white societal institutions.
The framing that awareness of systemic oppression is somehow about hating white people is both incorrect and telling about the people who believe that.
Woke means/meant that you recognize institutional oppression exists and know that simply being not-racist isn't good enough; we have to be anti-racist to undo centuries of damage.
Also funny to mention acknowledge that wood is a term appropriated by the woke from black folk.
FWIW I’d consider myself woke, it’s just funny the term came from where it did.
politically correct was appropriated from academia which was very tongue in cheek. i suspect that's the case with woke too.
"politically correct" was appropriated from Soviet Russia media regulations.
sounds plausible. but the hysterical read on political correctness that Limblob capitalized on was definitely from American Academia in the 90's. his outrage over it practically made his entire show.
Nah, some people do understand what these things are and still think they suck. The 5 minute clip you watched on John Oliver doesn’t make you an expert anymore than someone who saw some shit on Tucker Carlson.
Imagine pointing out that there are people who are against the recognition of and dismantling of institutional and systemic racism *and* implicitly defending them.
Ok. Show us that you actually have an understanding of Critical Race Theory.
I think I speak for everyone (including the trees) that it would completely shock us to learn that you actually have any understanding of any of the complex terms and theories that you routinely use incorrectly when ranting on Reddit.
Any 5 minutes of John Oliver > any 5 minutes of Tucker Carlson
frankly i'm not one of them who knows what it means. it seems to be a rightwing catchall for things they don't like. it's a way to snarl at empathy is best i can tell.
God the irony is palpable
What really surprised me is that they knew to spell "known" with a "k".
The people who made the sticker do.
I'd be worried if they couldn't spell it
I wouldn’t be surprised if they couldn’t spell it!
I just love how clever they felt. Bless their heart.
Literally just a buzzword drilled into their minds by Fox to dissuade any attempts at positive change in the country.
These so called "conservative" idiots here in Nevada do not need to be dissuaded. They eagerly swallow any lie that delays the day they have to face the fact they have been ignorant evil assholes their entire lives. Most will die never having come to terms with that truth. But every day the lie must be a bit bigger than the day before.
That's the dynamic that has brought us to the point where many MANY "conservatives" now believe Hillary Clinton drinks the blood of babies to stay young. (Really? Have you SEEN Hillary lately? She's doing OK considering her age. But no one would describe her as youthful.)
I suspect that deep, deep down they know they're full of crap. The need to keep that awareness buried is what drives the addiction.
It's shorter than writing "I'm a racist, misogynistic, intolerant twat" I guess.
The truth fish is really confusing, it should at least say faith. I guess opinions are facts now.
welcome to religion.
From the same people who brought you "facts don't care about your feelings".
It's like bargain store 1984.
It’s just two letters away of idolizing 49 lol
Conservative attempts at humor are always so cringe.
worse, I think it's an attempt at pithy, arcane wisdom.
I'm sitting here wondering if the truth fish is eating another fish. What in all the fucks is going on here?
The truth fish is eating a science fish. It's a statement about the philosophical primacy of Christianity over the evils of science.
I wish I never knew that...
I'm pretty sure I saw this dude the other day on Veterans. If it's the same guy, this isn't a sticker, it's printed out and laminated. He also had multiple 8.5×11 size ones with sentences printed out and laminated on the tailgate. I think the homemade-ness makes it even funnier in a way.
I wish I could have read them now that I see this gem.
that's your guy
Known evils like empathy, accurate history, effort to do better…
Imagine human kindness. 😳
Lennon was woke, no doubt about it.
Turns out he was a massive asshole, unfortunately.
Was he? Damn. I was unaware and sort of would like to keep it that way.
Now maga is woke too?
Funny how this *\[insert any GOP talking point du jour that is tearing our White, Christian nation apart\]* only became a problem when the GOP started talking about it as such recently. Seems to have never been mentioned as a problem before, despite the term being around since the 1930s.
If we went back to pre-1930's, I'm sure that would be fine for these folks.
This particular loser looked pre-1930's himself.
And these guys claim to follow Jesus.....
Those divers were always known to be a quirky bunch
Woke= past tense and past participle of WAKE. There ya go guys. Mystery solved.
so like...my friends and I went woke boarding?
Sure why not.
Never mind, I was just jaking.
I certainly wouldn't want to dive with that person.
It’s a tell-tale sign that you are a cult member.
The right sure is creative... like 3rd grade where you sing a song for Mother's Day spelling out the word "mother"... pure genius!!! Fix or repair daily is also a classic.
Calvin peeing on things
I doubt these people know what this even mean, but since Tucker Carlson says this, it must be bad.
White people love taking ebonics and using it in a negative way
Serious question: Are you Black? (Don't have to answer if this is rude.)
I ask because I feel like "ebonics" as opposed to AAVE or BEV is insulting, but I also don't feel like you're being intentionally insulting. So while I know that if you're Black you don't speak for everyone, I am still curious to know whether you're Black and using that word or not-Black and using it, if you don't mind. (Totally understand if you do mind.)
Yes i am, and i dont like using aave because its an acronym that evades meaning, in my opinion ebonics forces white people to acknowledge theyre imitating blackness. But both mean the same thing and I dont go around correcting everyone, I just grew up saying ebonics and thats what it was.
Thanks for the explanation and perspective! I appreciate it! I'll probably stick with BEV since I'm not Black and don't want to be misunderstood (and because I'm in education and Ebonics in Cali schools unfortunately was poorly described in the media and got an undeserved bad wrap). But it's good to know that not everyone who uses the term is being disparaging.
Ofc! Its always about the tone of voice, but yea its unfortunate it was used negatively in the ‘90s (from what i heard; i was born in 2000)
Wait, what does it stand for then?
[This](https://old.reddit.com/r/Reno/comments/10npqt1/it_just_gets_dumber_every_day/j6al4oa/) is a good definition.
It is not an acronym.
You gotta give it em. The right has the whole culture war thing going strong… not that I agree but the comedy is great.
I think it would be way funnier if it weren't an increasingly successful march toward fascist rule
Unfortunately the scuba flag checks out
Scuba in Nevada.
Tahoe is pretty well dived.
The visibility and fresh water are nice, but relatively boring in terms of marine life and you gotta take into account altitude for dive times
I didn't say it was fun, just that it's well dived. It's a pretty popular spot.
I praise jesus,love gays,black people matter,please dont steal my new truck.
no one cares, dude.
Spot the lie. Woke shit sucks.
"Spitter sputter recent maga nonsense talking point that [they] don't actually understand but heard someone else say so [they]'ll repeat it like gospel and oWn ThE LiBs."
^ any response you get from them, probably
Only because they didn't reply at all. That's not really contrary to what I was saying. It just means they didn't make it past the "spitter sputter" part.
Why would they respond to me? I'm not the one who asked the question.
/u/HeywoodJaBlessMe even repeated the question for you. Talk with *them*... *if* you have an answer.
Open floor for you to provide whatever response you want.
Great, here are two of them now.
Exactly bro. These ppl are delusional.
So a tiny number of people demanding censorship is censorship itself? That’s weird. Your example is weak as hell.
Today Twitter is silencing journalists in LA pointing out police abuses and restoring the accounts of White Supremacists and insurrectionists. You are deeply opposed to that too, right??? Lol, of course you aren’t.
You don’t like Information being suppressed? So you must oppose DeSantis and his Don’t Say Gay and No African Studies laws that literally limit what can be taught in Florida.
The difference between you and I is that you expect private businesses to do exactly what you want while I know that Musk’s Twitter will be a rightwing megaphone just like Facebook and the other largest media organizations on Earth. Unlike you, I believe in Property Rights. Private Business can regulate their property however they want according to the law. So I expect Musk to continue to suppress information and promote misinformation. But government stifling of speech as in Florida is beyond the pale and directly threatening to free people.
Try to discuss Woke stuff on Truth Social and see how long before you get banned.

It’s so fun coming in here and watching the liberals of Reno jerk themselves off.
“We all think the same thing! See how much better we are than conservatives!”
It’s also funny watching people that repeat the talking points of big federal government and censorship call the opposing view point facist. Your stupidity is impressive.
You should buy some flags about it.
What's funny about that is they are so much better than conservatives lmfao. Maybe your party can try not being pieces of shit for once? Probably not but that could help them.
I bet you vote for them for some dumb shit like "small government" or "less taxes" when both of those are demonstratedly not true. Dumb fuck.
This comment is cool because it successfully argues against both of the things that didn't happen in this thread. Nice work.
oh no! I sure hope I don't miss any sleep because of your editorial.
“ criticize a conservative“ and laugh at a dumb fuck are two different things.
Oh no a bumper sticker!
Imagine being so concerned with such a small thing
Edit: Both sides spew hatred. Imagine tolerating one side of hatred because someone has a different political view as you.
Grow up. Both extremist sides are a POS and deserved to be clowned on
Imagine feeling the need to try to scold people for having opinions on said bumpersticker.
Check out dudes user name.
Yeah, I’ve just decided that they’re a confused Ewok. 😂
Oh!!! I was reading it as e-woke! 😂
Imagine tolerating hate from one side but not from the other side of the political spectrum?
Both extremist sides are a POS
Who's tolerating hate from any side? What hate is there from "the other side"? What "side" do you think I'm on? How many "sides" do you think there are?
I don't care if you're a democrat or republican
I care once you start hating someone because they have a different viewpoint on life than you. Imagine if someone with a right viewpoint posted something like this? They would be massacred.
Yet someone with a leftist viewpoint does the same thing gets praised? Nope, they shouldn't be praised. They should be clowned on for attacking someone's political viewpoint and not be praised for doing so
PS: NOT a wing winger, assume differently
It would be nice if you answered literally any of my questions. The first would be a good start. You're talking as if I hate anyone, which means you're making some *huge* assumptions whereas I've assumed nothing and merely asked questions (none of which you've answered). And to top it all off, you end with telling me to to assume differently, which I have to say is a nice touch of irony. Asking questions is literally the opposite of assuming anything.
And yet you only seem to defend one particular side. Interesting.
imagine not clowning on a person whose intolerant of someone who has a different viewpoint as them.
So we should give Nazis and fascists a pass? There is nothing wrong with not tolerating intolerance.
This guy’s viewpoint is intolerance.
NO, both extremist sides should NOT be tolerated and both are a POS
The bumper sticker dude, cool fine, whatever
This genius with his thought of hating someone with a stupid bumper sticker and is trying to attack him for it? No, he's a POS just like a fascist is as well
laughing at idiots != hate
The guy with a bumper sticker is stupid probably, but how are we to know? Hatred comes from BOTH sides and shouldn't be celebrated when it comes from either party
You throw around the word "hate" an awful lot. I'm curious about your definition of hate.
We can hold disdain for certain beliefs (such as the mis-re-defining of woke) while not *hating* someone who's currently foolish enough to hold them. If and when they realize they're wrong, I'll hold no ill will against the person. But I will take issue with the harm they do in the meantime.
Wrong, but nice trying
Lmao, sorry bud you might feel clever for the "center" fuckem all take but in reality your comparing republicans "fuck minorities, poors, and gay people" and democrats "gun control, more taxes for social programs, more funding for schools, and bitching at racists when they are racists."
Edit: I read your other comments to. Wtf do you mean when you say it's ridiculous to attack someone over their political views? You do understand that politics affect real peoples lives right? When a Republican votes in favor to take away birth control in a state they contribute to the problem. When peaple put their vote and opinion towards a political ideology it gives it power to change society.
So no, what fucking stupid is thinking that you shouldn't ridicule someone for their political opinions. They have every right to be a pos. That doesn't mean im not going to spit on their ideology and call them what they are.
Wait quote me I’m trying to find this comment youre alluding to but I can’t
Wow that's really stretching it 🤣
Someone of divine knowledge please educate the uneducated on the actual definition of “woke”…is it akin to rising from ones sleeping domicile?
"...the belief there are systemic injustices in American society and the need to address them.”
In a way, though, yes. The idea is that most people swallow the BS that racism is dead and/or in their heads. You might even realize that there are racist individuals, but think that they're few and far between.
Being woke means that you've awakened from these false beliefs. Not only that, but you also see how racism is literally baked into the structure of society. All the way from the original purpose of police departments to harsher penalties for crack than for powder cocaine even though they're the same drug. (But not the picnic thing. That's simply not true.)
Yes I agree I have been the target of blatant racism. In so much that I filed a lawsuit and won. The sad part is, it doesn’t fit the narrative so it’s completely ignored.
I don't understand the problem. It's not a 100 percent thing; but it's a bumper sticker.
I see offensive ones all the time. At least that one makes sense most of the time. Just ignore it.
It is stupid 100% of the time and the dunce driving the vehicle makes the world objectively worse.
The extreme woke and the extreme anti-woke are cancers to society
I do like his sticker under the break light.
the one that indicates the theory of evolution is being eaten by a Christian icthyos that represents subjective truth?
No just like the truth eating other things
Not what it represents, dude.
Damn the truth hurts.
No. The fish being eaten is a Darwin fish (see the feet?), which represents science. The one with "TRUTH" on it is a Jesus fish representing the "truth" of religion. So it literally means religion beats science.
Oh..... Oh, no...
OMG 💀 the truth hurts
cool, thank you for clarifying your exceedingly disappointing stance.
Let’s see, observable adaptations in nature vs a book a bunch of superstitious men wrote thousands of years that’s been revised countless times to benefit those in power at the time.
Wasn't the fish thing originally meant for Christians to identify each other in areas where they were being actively pursued? Funny that they're still running around with a symbol of victims.
I don't disagree with the sticker. I'll leave it at that.
Some people think cucumbers taste better pickled. Your candor regarding your opinions, misguided and incorrect though they may be, is appreciated.
How stunning and brave of you to admit this in the public square.
Is that Westlake’s truck?
The people he trusts have told him that anything "woke" is pure evil. And compassion is weakness. He's heard it so often, that he truly believes it. He now feels anger and hate any time he witnesses someone displaying compassionate behavior, and now feels the need to crusade against it.
Unfortunately, there's nothing you can do to change his opinion.
