Architects of Woke: Judith Butler’s War on Science

Released March 8, 2019

The Architects of Woke is releasing episodes throughout 2019. The series takes aim at far-left post-modernist and Marxist thinkers and activists responsible for the spread of identity politics on college campuses and in society at large.

The series is hosted and directed by filmmaker Rob Montz. Montz is the co-founder and CEO of Good Kid Productions. His online documentary work has attracted millions of views and coverage in major outlets, including The Economist, USA Today, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and The Adam Carolla Podcast. His 2017 documentary, “Silence U. PT 2: What Has Yale Become?” published on We the Internet TV, won the 2018 Reason Video Prize.

The first episode, “Judith Butler’s War on Science” covers the influence of University of California at Berkeley feminist gender theorist Judith Butler, who is famous for making the argument that gender is a performance rather than biological, leading to the notion that gender is an endlessly divisible spectrum that can have far more than two types, male and female, which is contradicted by substantial evidence. Butler’s theories, spread through dense, opaque jargon, originated the notion that gender is subjective and non-binary, which has infiltrated feminist schools of thought and harmed women, according to lesbian activists. Butler is a powerful force in academia. Beyond the field of gender studies, she serves on the executive council of the Modern Language Association, which sets standards for high school and undergraduate writing.

Subjects of upcoming episodes of The Architects of Woke will include Slavoj Žižek, a highly influential Marxist-Leninist philosopher, and Chapo Trap House, the wildly popular radical socialist podcast that has been described as “the last stop off the socialist train before Antifa”. and receives over $100,000 a month in donations, making it the highest-funded project on Patreon.
