It’s intentional. Woke is a dumb term to use seriously anyway, especially by people who turn around and make fun of the “wake up sheeple” crowd (it’s literally the same meaning). But the conservative MO is to take messages, panic, apply them to literally anything they don’t like until it’s absurd meaningless irredeemable mess. See critical race theory, socialism, communism, sexual education, health care.
It’s like describing a concept to someone with dementia and having it blended in a mind like that and spit back out. It’s exhausting
