Letter: Woke and anti-woke

Recently, Alaska tribal communities were awarded millions of dollars for relocation of core infrastructure necessitated by climate change. Perhaps this could only have been done in a Democratic administration? I don’t think so. After all, per state officials, this negotiation has been going on for more than 20 years. I also think that any traditional Republican administration would eventually have done the same.

The reality of the anti-“wokeness” agenda is that it is not the GOP, it’s the continuation of a specific administration’s policy that was notable for having stripped the factual existence of climate change from government websites and agencies. Once you deny facts, it becomes necessary to deny rights to those who are actually suffering from those facts.

Mr. Liam Denning’s recent commentary (Dec. 2) would have been better if instead of concentrating on political theory, it had focused on the real-life consequences that such “antiwokeness” creates.
