Glenn Reynolds: Americans Hate The Woke Mob, So Why Are They Getting Their Way?

University of Tennessee Professor Glenn Reynolds explains Americans hate the "woke mob" but because they don't want to deal with it and giving in is easier:. "What you have to realize about what is going on is that the woke is a tiny minority maybe 3 or 4 percent of the population. Everybody hates woke culture, the polls show a vast majority of Americans hate it, the vast majority of blacks hate it, all the minorities, liberal comedians hate it, even Barack Obama spoken out about it. They still get their way so often because they are just bullies, and they bully people and they threaten them, and they go after them, and people just want it all to go away and so they give in, especially the people who run a lot of our institution who tend to not have much of a spine. But the fact is, nobody actually likes these people, nobody agrees with them, and we can't let a minority of bullies take over our culture and terrorize the public. There's a new YouGov/Cato poll that shows two thirds of people are afraid to speak their politics."
