Do you understand what Cultural Marxism really is and how it works? Here’s an explanation.
So now lets see how that works . . .
Apple VP of Inclusion and Diversity Ms. Smith suggested this “Diversity is the human experience. There can be 12 white blue-eyed blonde men in a room and they are going to be diverse too because they’re going to bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation.” The progressive tech world exploded and Ms. Smith was forced to make the standard groveling apology that we have come to expect.
Then we have this–at the University of Central Florida. The leftist groups are increasingly open in their extremism and their embrace of violence to achieve political ends. One of the group’s organizers sent a tweet with the hashtag #KillCapitalist that tries to justify the bloodlust by calling Henry Kissinger a dirty word and accusing him of killing 4 million people. Here’s another tweet sent by the same person. I’m not able to copy tweets onto the blog so will quote what it said.
“You can’t start a fire without a spark. This gun’s for hire. Even if we’re just dancing in the dark”
Foolish adolescent posturing? Maybe. But foolishness can get out of control, as the nightmarish French Revolution demonstrated so graphically. He did include a picture of a guillotine in his posting.
The Daily Princetonian offers an alarming glimpse at the mentality of the totalitarian dominated campuses these days. Princeton junior Ryan Born said the following.
“When conservatives appeal to “free speech,” it is actually a calculated political move designed to open up avenues of political discourse while shaming others from moving in active political opposition. I argue that when conservatives resort to this move, they can be safely ignored, as they are appealing to a right that does not exist.
“I am not arguing that conservatives do not expect intellectual opposition to their content; instead, I am arguing against their right to be heard and accepted.
“If conservative arguments were strong, they would be convincing, and if they were convincing, they would not meet political opposition. If conservative arguments were strong, they would stand without desperate appeals to the idea of “free speech.” If the only justification conservatives can offer for their ideas is that they merely exist, then let me say as Trotsky did: “You are miserable bankrupts, your role is played out; go where you out to go — into the dustbin of history!”
We’re in trouble when Ivy League students approvingly quote a communist like Trotsky while discussing free speech. This person is majoring in philosophy, so he’ll probably end up teaching. ( or preparing lattes at Starbucks.)
Finally I leave you with this. To see the future look to the past. The defunct Soviet Union shows us the fate that awaits persons and unpersons-to-be from Harvey Weinstein to Gunter Bechly to Robert E.Lee, Thomas Jefferson George Washington, and Christopher Columbus — assuming progressive prevail;
Think what Stalinists could do if they had Photoshop.
