I’ve written a fair bit on this in the past but there is no harm in revisiting the subject on a regular basis because it is in my opinion, the greatest evil we face. Even though to many it does not exist.
Even when some on the so called right refuse to acknowledge its existence, and in their stubbornness and willful ignorance they aid and abet and encourage those who are their enemies.
The blog Politically Short has a long article on the subject that I read last night and it was an excellent read. I will share some of it with you here, but go here if you want to read the full article.
“We must be ready to employ trickery, deceit, law-breaking, withholding and concealing truth…We can and we must write in a language which sows among the masses hatred, scorn, and the like towards those who disagree with us”, wrote Vladimir Lenin. The basis of Lenin’s statement is very much alive today within the Democrat party as they relentlessly attack and sow hatred towards cultural, moral, and religious institutions that conservatives hold dear.
“This is the basis of the great cultural war we’re undergoing…. We are two countries now. We are two countries morally, culturally, socially, and theologically. Cultural wars do not lend themselves to peaceful co-existence. One side prevails, or the other prevails”, states Patrick J. Buchanan in the opening scenes of James Jaeger’s film, Cultural Marxism: The Corruption of America.
The truth that conservatives must come to terms with is that the other side, the Democrat party, has prevailed as Cultural Marxism has advanced on the long march throughout our nations most revered institutions. This march began in the United States in the 1930’s as Marxists Antonio Gramsci and George Lukacs established the Frankfurt School at Columbia University in New York City. “The primary goal of the Frankfurt School”, writes Linda Kimball of American Thinker, “was to translate Marxism from economic terms into cultural terms.”
According to Kimball, “it provided ideas on which to base a new political theory of revolution based on culture, harnessing new oppressed groups for the faithless proletariat…smashing religion and morals [while] also building a constituency among academics.” Moreover, Cultural Marxism emphasized culture as the main cause for inequality stemming from race, religion, sex, and everything in between.
In order to implement this new direction in Marxism, Gramsci and Lukacs began what they termed the “long march throughout the institutions.” This “march” was slow and systematic beginning in the primary institutions of culture (schools, churches, newspapers, movies, media, etc.), which were taken over by socialist thinkers and sympathizers. “Once taken over”, notes Nelson Hultberg of The Daily Bell, “they could then impart ‘true socialist values‘ to the people and raise new generations to give their loyalties not to God, country, and individualism, but to the State and collectivism.”
The emphasis of Cultural Marxism was thus placed on analyzing, controlling, and changing what was once the popular culture, the popular discourse, the mass media, and the language itself in America. By institutionalizing and spreading their influence, this kind of Marxism would ingrain a hatred of Western values into the culture and future generations to come.
With this notion in mind, Cultural Marxism placed a new emphasis on liberating all men and women from the “evil repression” and “tyrannical values” that Western civilization was built upon. To bring this about, the Frankfurt School designed numerous strategies to discredit and smear the values that had forged and sustained the West for the past 2,000 years.
“Critical Theory“, writes Hultberg, “was the first and most important of these strategies” as it was not only critical to discrediting capitalism but also social conditions of contemporary society and existing social institutions. Hultberg explains, “Under its auspices, every tradition of Western life was to be redefined as ‘prejudice’ and ‘perversion’. And these redefinition’s were to be instilled into the social stream via devastating scholarly criticisms of all values such as family, marriage, property, individualism, patriotism, faith in God etc.”
Critical Theory precisely defines the tactics used by the Democrat party today as they attack Christianity, capitalism, family, patriarchy, hierarchy, morality, tradition, loyalty, and patriotism. They routinely and consistently attack any and all foundations of our society in order to destroy our culture and advance their agenda.
Now I defy anyone who claims to have even a smidgen of intelligence to tell me that the above words to not exactly describe the events we have witnessed in Western society over the last few decades.
And worse, here in NZ and most of the west, its a disease that is not only infecting the parties of the left, but through its embedding in our culture, has seeped through to our Conservative political parties as well.
On the above description of Cultural Marxism, David Farrah’s Kiwiblog is a blatant propaganda outlet for it, and so is Cameron Slater’s Whaleoil. Yet these two outlets are widely perceived as right wing and even gloat themselves about being part of what they laughingly call the “Vast Right Wing Conspiracy”.
Please go and read the full article as it explains why the Baltimore Riots are part of Cultural Marxism, and why so many other destructive events are similarly connected.
It explains why I say that Cultural Marxism (closely related to Fabian Socialism) is the greatest evil to ever curse mankind. It makes Nazism look like kid’s stuff.
