When it comes to wokeness, West Virginia takes a measure of pride in being asleep at the wheel.

Merriam-Webster defines “wokeness” as “being aware of and actively attentive to important societal facts and issues.” The West Virginia Legislature’s supermajority apparently favors the Nikki Haley alternative version, in which wokeness is seen as a virus spawned by the “socialist” Democratic party that has become “more dangerous than any pandemic.”
