Why People Follow Woke Trends: Darren Beattie

Darren Beattie is a former White House speech writer and the founder of Revolver News.

He says the United States is exporting woke ideology around the world to destabilize foreign nations. It’s also being used to destabilize the U.S., he says.

At the 2022 National Conservatism Conference, he talked to NTD about how he thinks it’s easier for most people to just go along with woke trends rather than oppose them.

“Every dominant institution in the United States is woke. And so to a certain degree, simply to get by professionally, one has to be woke. As a matter of psychology, it’s a lot easier to actually believe what you perform than live a lie every day. And so I think people have an incentive to actually genuinely believe it. And most people are not inherently political. And so they just go along, like anyone else, with what the dominant ideology is.”
