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.

DC Comics Artist Quits; Says Woke Superman Dropping ‘The American Way’ From Motto “Really Pissed Me Off”

“I’m finishing out my contract with DC. I’m tired of this sh*t, I’m tired of them ruining these characters; they don’t have a right to do this.”

An artist who worked for DC Comics has quit saying that he is “tired of them ruining these characters,” including Superman, after the company dropped ‘the American way’ from the hero’s famous motto.

Colorist Gabe Eltaeb revealed on a recent podcast “I’m finishing out my contract with DC. I’m tired of this sh*t, I’m tired of them ruining these characters; they don’t have a right to do this.”

“What really pissed me off was saying truth, justice, and a better world. F*ck that; it was ‘truth, justice, and the American way,'” Eltaeb further stated.

“My Grandpa almost died in World War II; we don’t have a right to destroy sh*t that people died for to give us. It’s a bunch of f*cking nonsense,” Eltaeb urged.

The artist, who worked on the much maligned “Son of Kal-El” Superman books in which Clark Kent’s son comes out as a bi-sexual social justice warrior, also spoke about the abuse he has been subjected to for his opinion on the comic book characters being ruined.

“They call us bigots and racist and sh*t,” Eltaeb noted, adding “I would ask them, find me in the f*cking mainstream, not on the fringes, one f*cking book, one f*cking t-shirt, one movie that says that leftism is bad, and conservatism is good, find it for me, they f*cking won’t. They’re not letting people have a voice, they’re the f*cking bigots.”

The podcast host Ethan Van Sciver added “You cannot come out and be a conservative and criticize the company that you work for in this way. You have to be completely supportive of the corporate agenda, whatever it is.”

“You have to keep your negative or critical opinions to yourself, and it’s so liberating to be able to not work for DC comics and be able to say exactly what you think,” Sciver emphasised, adding “And I think that’s what Gabe is going through here.”

    TV Director Slammed For Comparing Treatment of Trans People To The HOLOCAUST

    “Trans people are in the middle of a Holocaust”

    A TV director who compared the attitude toward transgender people to the treatment of Jewish people during the Nazi holocaust has been roundly criticised for the comments.

    The comparison was made by Joey Soloway during a protest at Netflix headquarters over Dave Chapelle’s special The Closer in which he comments on biological gender.

    Soloway, who identifies as ‘nonbinary’, said that “Trans people are in the middle of a Holocaust,” further claiming they are being subjected to “apartheid, murder, a state of emergency, human rights crisis.”

    “The line is simple: stop making things worse,” Soloway said, demanding that Netflix appoint a trans person to its board “this f****** week.”

    The comments quickly sparked a backlash:

    And then there is this…

    Chapelle himself said at a recent performance that “If this is what being canceled is like, I love it,” adding “F*** Twitter. This is real life.”

    Meanwhile, Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos has indicated that he has “some regrets” about the Chapelle special, particularly that he “screwed up” communicating with Netflix staff who expressed outrage about it. Sarandos clarified, however, that the special will not be removed, saying that “While some employees disagree, we have a strong belief that content on screen doesn’t directly translate to real-world harm.”
