Move over, Alcoholics Anonymous. You’re so yesterday’s news. A new societal and personal ill has consumed the national conscience that is a far more grievous sin than alcohol abuse. Its damage, in fact, is so pervasive and far-reaching that a group of the afflicted at Northwestern University’s Pritzker Law School has even appropriated your “I’m so-and-so, and I’m an alcoholic” routine.

Writer Rod Dreher explains.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

This ritual is ridiculous, granted, but it is not the first of its kind since the Left became collectively “woke” following the death of George Floyd. In early June, some thousand white demonstrators sat on the ground in Bethesda, Md., taking an oath administered by a black leader not to stay silent about “racism, anti-blackness or violence.” The oath was followed by the ritual taking of a knee to show fealty to one’s BLM masters.

Several days later a group of privileged whites in Cary, N.C., atoned for their sins during a prayer walk by kneeling and washing the feet of black community leaders. Photos of the event were posted to Twitter by Lori Bush, mayor of the Cary Town Council, who described the scene as a “poignant moment.”

Not everyone shared her reaction. Here are some tweets posted in reaction to Bush’s.
