Woke Versus Woke: Netflix Under Attack by its Own People

In recent days we have witnessed that companies like Netflix and Disney, in their attempt to take their wokeism to the maximum, have ended up offending feminists and the LGBT community, leading to a woke versus woke confrontation. Because of the spiral of victimhood without limit of wokeism, these paradoxical and hilarious situations have arisen.

With the premiere of Blonde, the fictional biopic of Marilyn Monroe, Netflix thought it was going to delight its more radical feminist audience by presenting a woman as a helpless victim of evil men who wouldn’t stop smoking.

However, in their attempt to satisfy the #MeToo movement, it has ended up backfiring on them, as the film is being heavily criticized precisely by feminists, due to what they understood to be an intolerable anti-abortion message.

In their desire to victimize Marilyn Monroe to an unbearable extent, they included a plot in which the actress was forced to have an abortion by her lovers. In some very bizarre scenes – and more typical of B-movies than of a high-concept art film – we could first observe a talking fetus, and then hear the voice-over of the aborted baby.

Considering that for leftists listening to the heartbeat of the fetus is seen as an attack on women’s rights, we can imagine how badly these scenes of the baby talking to Marilyn Monroe have gone down with feminists.

This oversight has completely eclipsed Blonde‘s ultra-feminist discourse, demonstrating that Wokeism is insatiable and only accepts total adherence to its postulates.

Netflix has also suffered the demonizing of cancel woke culture with its series Dahmer, about 1980s serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. Netflix twisted the true story of this killer to fit today’s leftist narrative, turning it into a propaganda pamphlet for movements like BLM and Defund the Police.

However, it seems they made the mistake of wanting to cover too many topics of woke interest. Since Jeffrey Dahmer’s victims were mostly gay men, Netflix classified the film under the label “LGBT” in its catalog. But of course, as Dahmer himself was gay, and the environments shown in the series are sordid, some representatives of the queer community complained that the series left the LGTB movement in a bad light.

Due to complaints, Netflix had to remove the label and apologize because, apparently, the LGBT lobby is not interested in “giving visibility” to the movement, but in whitewashing it. On the one hand they encourage coming out, but on the other they sweep Dahmer under the rug.

Not only Netflix. Disney competes for getting the scepter woke

Finally, just this week we have also seen one of these inconsistencies in Disney‘s new Star Wars series, Andor. In it, we are shown the classic factions of the heroic Rebel Alliance and the evil Galactic Empire.

However, Disney‘s drive to make its cast of characters a melting pot of diversity and inclusion has led us to the endearing situation where the supposedly fascist, evil and bigoted Galactic Empire is filled with Asian, black and empowered female officers.

The complaints of the tolerant and supportive professionals will not be long in coming, lest the public begin to draw parallels between the Galactic Empire and the current earthly left, which, although they set themselves up as champions of inclusion and good vibes, ending up ruling with an iron fist.
