French government officials, including President Emmanuel Macron, have publicly stated that America’s “woke” ideology is harming the European nation.
Fox News reported that a leading French magazine, Le Spectacle Du Monde, recently criticized America’s “woke” culture in a piece titled, “The Suicide of America.” In the article, the magazine blames America’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan on a “woke dictatorship.” It also wondered if the American “empire was collapsing.” More from Fox:
The article also took American universities to task over alleged extremism and censorship on campuses. The story cited Yale University, where school officials urged students to reconsider Halloween costumes that might be racially insensitive.
Macron, who has been criticized by French progressives, told Elle Magazine this past summer that woke culture was “racializing” French society, Zenger reported.
