Wokism has evolved into a pseudo-religion filling the cultural and spiritual void created by the abandonment of classical religious beliefs such as Judaism and Christianity in favor of the secular dogma of Cultural Marxism.
A natural one to exploit was the race struggle of blacks and other minorities in America. Modern socialism though Cultural Marxism/Critical Theory continually seeks out new "victim" groups to stoke tensions between them and the predominant group, so black against white, rich against poor, secular against the religious, etc.
As explained in the article, CRT in its ultimate form is anathema to all American conservative thought. The objective of its proponents is nothing less than the complete overthrow of our American way of life in favor of a race-based, fascistic autocracy with unelected leaders at its head.
In an odd way, they've validated the Critical Theory that undergirds their political philosophy, the theory that posits that stronger groups will always subjugate weaker ones. Their recent actions would seem to support this theory.
