I admire Mr Farrar’s enthusiastic and cheerful repudiation of the undeniable fact that NZ today is deep in a Marxist quagmire that will be difficult to escape from. In a post today entitled “More marxist professors than Republicans” he makes the astonishing claim that NZ is only 0.5% Marxist. He supports this absurd delusion by saying 45% of voters vote National.
I smiled on reading the comments, which apart from the usual Conservative stalwarts, are basically a litany of Marxists and Marxist academics saying that academia in NZ is not in the firm grip of Marxism.
There’s Paul Buchanan whose blog is one of the most Marxist outlets in NZ. There’s Danyl McLauchlan, another raving loony watermelon whose innate Marxist personality made him, in an act of abject cowardice, delete my polite and harmless comments from his own blog without even a reason as to why.
NZ is deeply infested with this leftist disease, mainly because the left’s basic global strategies of Cultural Marxism and Critical theory have been so easy to implement in this small underpopulated island.
Mr Farrar’s ridiculous claim that voting National excludes one from being categorised as a Marxist is easily challenged by means of leader John Key’s own words, when during the last election he described the National party as “Progressive”, which as anyone with a political clue knows is just another euphemism for Marxist.
It infuriates me to see the Nats so blindly buy into so many facets of Critical Theory. At all times they’re flat out promulgating the propaganda that Western culture stinks and needs to be pulled down and rebuilt according to the Marxist blueprint.
We subjugate women, we’re cruel and heartless invaders, we’re racists who mistreat the so called original inhabitants, we exploit the poor and worship greed, we’re destroying the environment in our pursuit of that greed. We’re cruel to minorities, as illustrated by words like homophobic, islamophobic, xenophobic and all the rest.
TELL ME ONE PART OF ALL OF THIS MARXIST CRAP THE NATS AND OR THE GENERAL POPULATION DO NOT BUY INTO.
Tell me when you’ve heard John Key or any National MP strongly repudiate any of it. You can’t, because they believe it all.
I’ll finish with some accurate definitions from Metapedia
Cultural Marxism is a term used by critics and even self-admitted Marxists are unlikely to use the term to describe their own ideology. Also, Cultural Marxism has its origin in Marxist ideas but those promoting the ideas of Cultural Marxism today may not always know of this or consider themselves to be Marxists.
Instead, promoters of Cultural Marxism may use terms such as critical theory, postmodernism, deconstruction, or similar terms. Many do not know the origin of their own somewhat Cultural Marxist ideas and may, for example, describe themselves as social liberals.
Cultural Marxism places great emphasis on analyzing, controlling, and changing the popular culture, the popular discourse, the mass media, and the language itself. Seeing culture as often having more or less subconscious influences on people which create and sustain inequalities, Cultural Marxists themselves often try to remove these inequalities by more or less subtle manipulation and censorship of culture.
The phrase “The long march through the institutions of power” refers to Cultural Marxists slowly taking over key positions in the institutions controlling culture in order to create a new culture. In effect this will create revolutionary changes without having to resort to political violence.
All true, and the NZ situation in a nutshell.
One thought on “Marxist academics deny there’s a problem with Marxism in academia”
Cultural Marxism, ratchet socialism, Fabian socialism. Call it what you will, Farrar can’t identify if because he’s a propagandist in favour of it.
Point out his beloved Key-led administration stands a long way to the left of any previous Labour government and the response is a Trumptastic ‘but the polls, the polls’.
The graduated income tax? Marxist
The ‘green’ enviro-statism? Marxist
Government-run healthcare and education? Marxist
Balkanising the citizenry (e.g. having government departments that lobby the government on behalf of women, Maori, Pacific Islanders, Asians, farmers, welfare leeches, etc.)? Marxist.
Handing out favours and taxpayer cash to the government’s favoured companies or industries? Marxism’s first cousin Fascism.
New Zealand is more likely 0.5% NOT Marxist. There are very few of us who see the place for what it is, because of New Zealand’s century-long love affair with Big Government …. Marxism.
