Today John addresses the latest Wokus Pocus tactic being used to suppress truth claims by asserting that certain questions are off-limits because they are "racist" or "phobic." In reality, this poisoning-the-well tactic is simply an effort to avoid having to answer hard questions because the Wokies know they are losing the moral arguments. It dovetails with declaring logic and reason to be racist, double standards applied in issues of race, and the outright censorship of views they don't like. The bottom line? We need to keep asking the hard questions.
