Nick Cave Slams ‘Woke’ Culture as an Assault on Free Speech

Music legend says it’s self-righteous and suppresses contrary systems of thought.

Music icon Nick Cave has slammed ‘woke’ culture as an assault on free speech, asserting that it’s “self-righteous” and inflicts “suppression of contrary systems of thought.”

The Australian singer-songwriter was asked about the topic by a fan.

“I tend to become uncomfortable around all ideologies that brand themselves as ‘the truth’ or ‘the way’,” said Cave. “This not only includes most religions, but also atheism, radical bi-partisan politics or any system of thought, including ‘woke’ culture, that finds its energy in self-righteous belief and the suppression of contrary systems of thought. Regardless of the virtuous intentions of many woke issues, it is its lack of humility and the paternalistic and doctrinal sureness of its claims that repel me.”

He also underscored how the far-left and the far-right’s survival depends on each other.

“Antifa and the Far Right, for example, with their routine street fights, role-playing and dress-ups are participants in a weirdly erotic, violent and mutually self-sustaining marriage, propped up entirely by the blind, inflexible convictions of each other’s belief systems. It is good for nothing, except inflaming their own self-righteousness,” said the musician.

Cave also lamented how the left has completely abandoned the once sacred and cherished virtue of free speech.

“Some of us…are of the generation that believed that free speech was a clear-cut and uncontested virtue, yet within a generation this concept is seen by many as a dog-whistle to the Far Right, and is rapidly being consigned to the Left’s ever-expanding ideological junk pile,” he said.

Cave joins a select group of celebrities who are immune to “cancel culture” for speaking out against ‘wokeness’ because they are too successful or revered to ever be deplatformed.

The most vocal, however, remains Morrissey, who has repeatedly slammed political correctness and progressive hypocrisy, leading recently to one leftist trying to protest his show in Portland.

Top Footballer Tells LeBron James: ‘Stay Out of Politics’

Top footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic has refused to back down after LeBron James responded to his call for athletes to stick to sports and stay out of politics.

The controversy began when Ibrahimovic said last week, “[LeBron] is phenomenal at what he’s doing, but I don’t like when people have some kind of status, they go and do politics at the same time.”

“Do what you’re good at. Do the category you do. I play football because I’m the best at playing football.”

“I don’t do politics. If I would be a political politician, I would do politics. That is the first mistake people do when they become famous and they become in a certain status. Stay out of it. Just do what you do best, because it doesn’t look good.”

LeBron responded by saying he wouldn’t shut up and dribble and that he would continue to use his platform for “positive change”.

However, Milan superstar Ibrahimovic shot back, telling a press conference that sports personalities need to stop pushing divisive issues.

“Athletes unite the world, politics divide it,” said Zlatan.

“Our role is to unite the world by doing what we do best. Athletes should be athletes and politicians should do politics,” he added.

Ibrahimovic is a rare example of someone standing up to the woke mob, who often reserve their most vitriolic hate for celebrities who have the sheer temerity to refuse to take a stance.

It’s a damning indictment of where we are as a society when that is seen as a diabolical act of defiance.

Make America Ugly Again: Biden Scraps Trump Order Requiring Classical Architecture

America was in real danger of buildings looking nice again

Joe Biden has scrapped an Executive Order by President Trump that required new Federal buildings to be built only in beautiful classical styles.

Trump’s order from December mandated that buildings be designed in only classical, Neoclassical, Art Deco, Georgian, Greek Revival, and Beaux-Arts styles.

The order was an attempt to stop the trend of government buildings being soulless brutalist concrete boxes (see above), rather than constructions reminiscent of the buildings of ancient Athens and Rome.

The order noted that the founding fathers “wanted America’s public buildings to inspire the American people and encourage civic virtue,” and that “They sought to use classical architecture to visually connect our contemporary Republic with the antecedents of democracy in classical antiquity, reminding citizens not only of their rights but also their responsibilities in maintaining and perpetuating its institutions.”

Trump’s order emphasised that “New Federal building designs should, like America’s beloved landmark buildings, uplift and beautify public spaces, inspire the human spirit, ennoble the United States, command respect from the general public, and, as appropriate, respect the architectural heritage of a region.”

America was in real danger of buildings looking nice again. Thank goodness Biden stepped in.

As we have previously highlighted, Brutalist and Deconstructivist styles have been embraced in the US and even in Europe, where classical buildings are torn down and replaced with giant ugly, spirit sapping monstrosities.

Leftists celebrated the scrapping of Trump’s order, reasoning that classical architecture is fascist, art isn’t necessary in modern democracies, and Trump really wanted to make climate change worse… or something:

With cognitive dissonance on max, some even argued that classic architecture is “ugly” :
