Obama Criticizes Cancel Culture on Social Media: ‘That’s Not Activism’




President Obama called out what he called “woke” culture.

Obama told the audience on Tuesday at the Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago:

“This idea of purity and you’re never compromised and you’re always politically woke and all that stuff, you should get over that quickly,” he said. “The world is messy. There are ambiguities. People who do really good stuff have flaws.”

“There is this sense sometimes of the way of me making change is for me to be as judgmental about other people, and that’s enough”

“Like if I tweet or hashtag about how you didn’t do something right or used the wrong verb, then I can sit back and feel pretty good about myself because ‘man, you see how woke I was I called you out,’ ” he added.
