DEI Cronyism and Woke Grifters

Under toxic National Socialism, Stalinism, and Maoism, millions of cronies and grifters mouthed party lines in hopes that their approved ideology would allow them to advance their careers and excuse their lawbreaking. ​The same thing has happened with the woke movement and the now-huge Diversity/Equity/Inclusion conglomerate.
