(Chris Parker, Headline USA) Colonial Williamsburg, a destination loved by patriots for its depiction of early America during the Revolutionary era, has decided to embrace the Left’s woke agenda.

Colonial Williamsburg is joining a growing list of companies and organizations embracing woke policies. However, another growing list shows that leftists are increasingly (although quietly) admitting that going woke is a mistake.

Netflix admitted that openly when their corporate culture reversed course and began warning woke employees. The streaming platform was promoting woke content less than a year before that surprising move.
