Cultural Marxism has been discussed on ATS before. Many people have claimed that it isn't a big deal at all and is being blown out of proportion. I
feel that the events of the past weeks have shown us that not only is it alive and well, but it is now the biggest platform of the Democratic
First to define cultural marxism. Marxism was the idea that there were two groups of people, oppressed working class people, and the wealthy
oppressors that took advantage of them. This idea was defended by many people including academics, until it became obvious that it lead to the death
of possibly hundreds of millions of people in the societies that enacted it. Although it proved a terrible way to run a country, it did prove to be
an effective ideology for consolidating power.
Cultural marxism is an extension of this; it still says the world is made up of oppressors and oppressed. Except instead of limiting itself to
wealth, it allows all sorts of categories to be used. Some of the favorites are race, gender, sexual preference, and religion. But it doesnt stop
there, the categories can be endless.
In each of these categories, one side is the oppressor, and one is oppressed. SO here are some examples.
oppressor / oppressed
white / other races
male / female
heterosexual / all others
christian / other religions
USA / other countries
able bodied / disabled
rich / poor
And so forth. You are not a unique individual, you are merely the collection of these categories. So Trump falls into almost all examples of
oppressor, and therefore is a very bad person. Obama falls into some categories of oppressor, but also some of oppressed. Therefore he is much
There is a constant stress with how to weigh out if you belong to some groups that are on one side and some on the other. This changes from time to
time, but as of right now it seems that race is the most important category. So even being a rich, Christian man can be forgiven if you happen to be
black. (This is why bette midler had to apologize last week for saying women are the blacks of the world)
The highest attainable societal goal is to be as oppressed as possible, or a victim. The more victimhood you can claim, the more your voice matters
and must be heard.
You may think why do these categories matter? Just because someone is a disabled black woman doesnt mean they have a better understanding of a
particular topic. But that would make you a bigot in the eyes of the cultural marxist. That womans lived experience means her voice is the most
valuable, even if she does not have logic or facts. In fact, there is no such thing as facts anyways, truth doesnt exist, its just a racist concept
made up by white men.
The goal is to create division and take down the oppressor groups. This is usually done with rhetoric, but by no means are intimidation and violence
off the table. Members of the oppressor groups must be attacked unless they admit shame at being part of that group, and beg forgiveness of the
oppressed group and work in following members of the oppressed group in taking down the oppressors.
In short, Cultural marxism is factually ignorant, racist and bigoted. It ignores that all groups have been oppressors and oppressed (as have all
individuals) and seeks to judge people based off of characteristics they have no control over, such as race.
When you say a person is good or bad based on their race, we have a word for that; racism.
Despite this, this ideology has been pervasive in academics. In fact entire areas of study in the humanities are dedicated to it (now moving into the
sciences as well). Curriculum are designed discussing the evils of white people, or men. These courses are in fact bigoted and racist. There is an
easy way to prove it; reverse the race or gender being discussed in the class. Would there be course taught all of the country about the evils of
black people or women? Of course not, that would be bigoted. Therefore the same is true discussing the evils of men or white people.
Not only is it bigoted toward the groups being called evil, but it also is so against the so called oppressed groups, but treating them as children
that need to be protected and of a monolithic singular voice.
Now we are seeing this ideology branch out from academia, and into all of our cultural institutions.
Hollywood, the music industry, comedy, the media, and yes, even politicians, are openly supporting this ideology.
So lets look at the Kavanaugh debacle.
The majority of the main stream media and many Democrats set this up as a battle of the sexes. If you defended kavanaugh, then you must hate women
and dont take rape seriously. Never mind that many people such as myself were defending the concept of innocent until proven guilty and due process.
This is why you saw so many of these people emphasize patriarchy, or old men when discussing this. They would have you believe that only men would
defend the concept of innocent until proven guilty, and set up a men vs. women situation. Setting this up as a battle between men and women makes no
What was even more telling was watching them bring race into it. A white woman accused a white man of abuse, and somehow this became about white
privilege. How does that even make sense?
Here is a brief list of some of these comments, though there were in fact many many more.
The democrats and their media mouth piece were trying to use cultural marxism to inject race into a situation that it doesnt even remotely apply to.
This is because they need to create division based on racial and gender groups, so that they can consolidate power.
Now there is one more important thing I need to mention about cultural marxism. Its the most important rule to all of it. The only thing more
important than being a member of an oppressed group is that you MUST agree with all of the cultural marxist. You can be in almost every oppressed
group, black gay woman muslim who is disabled, etc., and if you think that cultural marxism is wrong or dangerous, or you disgree politically or
ideologically with the people pushing it, you lose all of the societal benefits that come with your victimhood.
In fact often times its worse than that; you are attacked worse than the members of the oppressor groups. This is because as we know it doesnt matter
what oppressors such as white men say; they are all just bad people seeking to maintain power so we can ignore them. But if a so called oppressed
person speaks out, this can bring down the whole game.
That is why we saw so much disdain for Susan Collins for her vote to confirm Kavanaugh.
