Why Cultural Marxism Can Only Destroy: Lesbians Versus Transsexuals

Cultural Marxism is useful only for its intended purpose, which is to destroy an existing society. It cannot be used to construct a new society, any more than a wrecking ball can be used to build a house. Last weekend’s London Pride Parade demonstrates why:

“A group of eight women stormed the parade route,” reported Gay Star News, and unfurled banners reading “Transactivism erases lesbians,” and “Lesbian = Female Homosexual.”

Local media reported that the protesters stalled the parade for around ten minutes, and as they were carted off, one could be heard screaming that, “A man who says he’s a lesbian is a rapist” — an apparent reference to male-to-female transgender individuals.

Many lesbians don’t like pseudo-female transgenders because they are men.

Other activists from groups calling themselves Get The L Out, Object, Mayday 4 Women, Critical Sisters and Lesbian Rights Alliance, handed out pamphlets along the parade route, also claiming that the Pride event’s expanding scope left lesbians marginalized and coerced into believing their sexual preferences were abhorrent. One flier read, “The trans movement is … coercing lesbians to have sex with men. We firmly condemn this vicious form of anti-lesbianism disguised as progress.”

The closer the cultural Marxist rainbow alliance of outliers and malcontents comes to overthrowing the core population and achieving real power, the more certain it is that those comprising it will be at each other’s throats. Under the depraved and pernicious ideology that liberalism has degenerated into, people are not bound together by blood, soil, or even principles, but merely by the identity group they choose to identify with. Spoils are to be divided according to where these identity groups rank in the Hierarchy of Victimhood. Competition will be fierce.

Pat Condell: The Curse of Cultural Marxism

It used to be good to be liberal. The Founding Fathers were liberals and created America on liberal principles. But then the concept of liberalism became corrupted. People who thought of themselves as liberal fell prey to the disease called cultural Marxism. Nowadays, “liberal” is used as a synonym for “progressive” — and as Pat Condell explains, being progressive is not good at all:

Academics Subordinate Science to Cultural Marxism

Scientific principles are universal by definition. But in academia, that doesn’t mean they can’t be overruled by political correctness:

In their research essay titled “Towards a truer multicultural science education: how whiteness impacts science education,” University of Colorado at Denver scholars Cheryl E. Matias and Paul T. Le seek to “have the field consider the theoretical frames of whiteness and how it might influence how we engage in science education such that our hope for diversity never fully materializes.”

We are told that scientific principles don’t have any actual reality. The only thing real is the fundamental truth that white people and Western Civilization are bad.

“Whiteness embraces White ideology, and because Whites are at the apex of the racial hierarchy, whiteness becomes normalized and is invisible to those who benefit the most from it,” the scholars observe. “This is particularly troubling because the normality of whiteness means that Whites do not believe that they are actively investing in White supremacy or racism, which keeps oppression intact.”

According to the authors, if you believe that science is or should be colorblind, you are a racist — i.e., the worst sort of person conceivable. It would also be racist to believe that if you drop a bowling ball it will land on your foot rather than float away on the breeze due to laws of gravity expounded by Newton, a loathsome Person of Whiteness.

Hold on for a blast of what your tax dollars subsidize:

“Ann Ryan (2008) argues that the history of European colonization and conquest influenced contemporary attitudes of valid knowledge, and much of the way western nations teach science erases the values and culture of indigenous people,” they continue. “Therefore, our science is out of touch with the experiences of our students of Color and, instead, represent post-colonial discourses of White power and control over people of Color via forcing the internalization of Western science knowledge.”

The “colonial” science works. Magic amulets and chanting incantations do not work. That is because the former is based on objective reality, whereas the latter are based on wishful thinking and pernicious nonsense, just like the crap academics shovel into young people’s heads. Consequently, before it became poisoned by progressivism, Western Civilization flourished and expanded at the expense of the dysfunctional societies created by savages.

Applying Cultural Marxism to U.S. Olympic Team

If the point of theatrical productions is to cast blacks in the best roles, then the point of the U.S. Olympic team must be not to field so many white athletes. The Washington Post confirms it:

The U.S. Olympic Committee says it’s taking its most diverse team ever to a Winter Games, an impressive and deserved boast that requires a caveat of sorts.

Yes, USOC officials are pleased the team includes more African Americans and Asian Americans — and even the first two openly gay men — than recent winter squads. But they also realize this year’s U.S. Olympic team, not unlike those of most other nations gathering in PyeongChang this week, is still overwhelmingly white.

That could be because outside of the politically poisoned pseudoworld liberals create through the media, America is mainly white, as it always has been. It is also because we are talking about the winter Olympics. Blacks are overrepresented in summer Olympics and underrepresented in winter Olympics because actual performance is still considered a factor in making the team, and while blacks can run fast, whites tend to excel at winter sports, if only for obvious historical reasons.

“We’re not quite where we want to be,” said Jason Thompson, the USOC’s director of diversity and inclusion.

When the Olympics are truly woke, athletes will not be awarded medals based on winning athletic contests, but rather on the basis of oppressedness scores, according to which they will be awarded points for African ancestry, sexual perversion, physical disabilities, et cetera.

Think I’m exaggerating? We are already almost there:

The Ted Stevens Act requires each sport’s governing body and the USOC to send a report to both Congress and the president every four years that, among other things, details participation of minorities, women and people with disabilities. In a step toward even more transparency, the USOC now requires each sport’s governing body to submit a diversity scorecard each year.

Once cultural Marxist liberals have taken over an institution, the issue is never the issue. The issue is always deemphasizing merit so as to marginalize members of the core population.

Cultural Marxism’s Built-in Self-Destruct Mechanism

Cultural Marxism is a strategy that calls for destroying a society by playing off alienated subcultures against the core population. It has been devastatingly effective, but does have at least one weakness. Eventually, the alliance of aggrieved misfits will disintegrate, as they turn their hostilities upon each other. This may allow the main culture to recover. If it survives, it will be wiser in the future, and less likely to indulge in sympathy for the sniveling deviants who want to bring it down. At least, that would be the ideal outcome.

Already the Left is turning on itself, always requiring new targets for its aggression as the last white male heterosexuals are driven out:

As the left becomes more intolerant, its various factions are encountering more conflict with each other. Black Lives Matter and other minorities create “spaces” where white people aren’t allowed — which exclude sympathetic white liberals. Transgenders and feminists get into vicious fights over whether transwomen are really women. Radical immigration groups crash LGBT marches. Feminists on college campuses broadly paint male co-eds as rapists — even liberal men. Comedians who routinely mock conservatives are finding themselves chased away from college campuses by snowflakes who don’t like their LGBT and race jokes. Bernie Sanders’ supporters are investigating the mysterious death of former DNC staffer Seth Rich, while Hillary Clinton supporters ridicule them as conspiracy theorists.

The conflict between transgender militants and TERFs (trans-exclusionary radical feminists) has become ugly in the extreme.

This foreshadows an even more violent collision coming down the road at full speed. Muslims are tailor-made for cultural Marxist purposes, as they can be relied on always to feel aggrieved and never to assimilate so long as they are a minority population. But Muslims disapprove of homosexuality vehemently. This is a problem, because given that gays tend to be brighter and more organized than most other alienated groups in the cultural Marxist coalition, they play a key role.

How will gays deal with Muslims? So far, the approach has been to stick their heads in the sand and pretend they can go on hating normal Americans together forever. It won’t last. Look overseas; storm clouds are beginning to form on the horizon:

Muslim groups in Malaysia and Indonesia have called for a boycott of Starbucks because of the coffee chain’s support for LGBT rights.

The term “support for LGBT rights” is media-ese for lobbying on behalf of the nightmarishly depraved gay agenda.

[The] Malaysian group Perkasa, which supports a hard-line form of Islam and nationalism, this week called on its more than 500,000 members to stay away from Starbucks coffee shops. This week and last, leaders of Indonesia’s second largest mainstream Muslim group, Muhammadiyah, with an estimated 29 million members, denounced the chain.

The groups were apparently reacting to comments made several years ago by former CEO Howard Schultz in support of gay rights that drew renewed attention amid an increasingly anti-LGBT climate in both of the predominantly Muslim countries.

Schultz, who typifies the degenerate corporate culture that political correctness has produced, is a belligerent advocate of the homosexual agenda.

Schultz recently shot himself in the foot by proclaiming that Starbucks would hire 10,000 Islamic “refugees” at the expense of out-of-work Americans. Not good enough. For Muslims, nothing short of conversion to Islam will ever be good enough.

Similar zero-tolerance mentalities can be found throughout the self-interested factions that make up the Left.

Cultural Marxism (a.k.a. political correctness) is an excellent strategy when the objective is to destroy. But it is not useful for any other purpose. Eventually, it will destroy itself.

Tactics of Cultural Marxism’s Brownshirts

Cultural Marxism has been advanced mainly through academia and the media. Having achieved hegemony in those areas, it is now moving directly into the streets. Its foot soldiers are similar to cultural Marxism’s Frankfurt School creators in that they are unclean ankle-biters. What critical theory is to philosophy, Antifa tactics are to warfare:

Portland, Oregon Police Chief Michael Marshman revealed on Friday that riot cops forced Antifa protesters out of local parks during a Jun. 4 protest after the [antifascist] group began launching balloons filled with feces, urine and chemicals at law enforcement.

In an open letter to Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, Marshman also noted that protesters “may have been using ‘gopher gassers,’” which are “small rodent poison gas devices.”

The letter was necessitated by Antifa’s allies at the American Civil Liberties Union propagandizing against the police.

In response to the ACLU’s claims that law enforcement used excessive force against Antifa protesters, as well as the call from Mayor Wheeler to provide documentation to support their use of force, Marshman responded with a six-page open letter, which detailed the biologically oriented attacks on officers.

“The decision to move the group located in Chapman Square was made after [Portland Police Bureau] had repeatedly observed objects being thrown and shot from slingshot type devices from Chapman Square into Terry Shrunk Plaza,” Marshman wrote. “These objects included urine and feces filled balloons, balloons with unknown chemicals, marbles, bricks and rocks.”

He added, “Given this, the assembly was declared an unlawful assembly and the park closed for public safety.”

Reporters from Willamette Week also noted that they witnessed rioters were throwing “red-stained” tampons at law enforcement officials during the “peaceful” protest.

Being true cultural Marxists, the Antifa crowd has no interest in building anything; their only objectives are to defile and to tear down.

The Architects of Western Decline: The Frankfurt School and Cultural Marxism

To understand where we are going, we have to understand how we got to where we are. That means we have to understand cultural Marxism and its creators:

The ideology we now call “liberalism” incorporates all of the horrific offspring of cultural Marxism (e.g., critical theory, political correctness, multiculturalism, repressive tolerance, social justice, feminism). It is not merely wrong, but malevolent by design.

Applied Cultural Marxism: Columbia University’s Students of Color Leadership Retreat

After the Frankfurt School escaped Nazi Germany, it settled at Columbia University. There it developed cultural Marxism, a strategy explicitly intended to destroy Western Civilization so that it might be replaced by a leftist utopia designed by masterminds. The strategy entails stoking the grievances of alienated minority groups and playing them off against the core population. Columbia is still at it:

Students of color at Columbia University can apply to attend an upcoming racially segregated retreat hosted by the school that promises to embolden and empower participants, according to organizers.

The “Students of Color Leadership Retreat 2016” is open to students within the Columbia University undergraduate community, including its all-women’s Barnard College.

Slated for the weekend of Nov. 12 at Greenkill Retreat Center at the New York YMCA Camp, the event is billed as “an intensive weekend of personal development, empowerment and community building for student leaders at Barnard and Columbia who identify as African/African-American/Black, Latino/Hispanic, Asian/Asian-American, Pacific Islander, Arab and Middle-Eastern, Native & Indigenous, and Multiethnic/Multiracial,” according to the university’s website as well as the retreat’s online application form.

Students who identify as regular Americans are decidedly not welcome.

“SOCLR is designed for students who identify themselves as a person of color as a primary identity,” Columbia’s website adds.

It goes without saying that programs allowing only whites would never be permitted. Yet we are told we must believe that modern society is racist in favor of whites, rather than against them. Holding this belief — or pretending to hold it even if you know better — is a central tenet of cultural Marxism.

Henry Aaron Spews Cultural Marxism

Unless you count the steroid-inflated cheater Barry Bonds, Henry Aaron holds the career homerun record. For this he has been treated like a demigod and showered with awards for decades. But that doesn’t mean he has to be gracious about it. Here he equates the old terrorist wing of the Democrat Party (a.k.a. the KKK) with the modern Republicans who largely constitute his fan base:

“Sure this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Mr. Aaron told USA Today. …

“We have moved in the right direction, and there have been improvements, but we still have a long ways to go in the country.

“The bigger difference is that back then they had hoods. Now they have neckties and starched shirts,” he said.

When the KKK rides out of the distant past to burn a cross on someone’s yard, who can say for sure that it isn’t Mitt Romney or even Condoleezza Rice under one of those white hoods?

Aaron, who has spent most of his life living like a king, still cherishes hate mail he received more than a generation ago in a pathetic attempt to cling to the belief that he is somehow oppressed.

Here is his proof that blacks are put-upon, even in a culture obsessively devoted to revering them:

“When I first started playing, you had a lot of black players in the major leagues,” he said, USA Today reported. “Now you don’t have any. (7.7 percent of big-leaguers last season). So what progress have we made? You try to understand, but we’re going backward.”

Clearly we need legislation to set race quotas for the major leagues. That blacks tend to be more interested in football and basketball these days can’t be the explanation, because that doesn’t advance the Agenda — it must be that baseball teams are deliberately excluding talented blacks because they care more about oppressing them out of spite than they do about winning ball games.

Given his tendency to overindulge in moonbattery, there is no question that MLB commissioner Bud Selig would enthusiastically applaud an executive action by Obama to correct this situation.

If Aaron were the only one to hold his absurd views, he would be a paranoid kook. But since he is merely echoing the corrosive propaganda shouted by the liberal noise machine, it would be more accurate to describe him as a gullible sheep who used to be able to hit a ball a long way, and who is unwittingly playing his part in the Cultural Marxist strategy to destroy America through divide and conquer tactics.

Ironically, his team the Atlanta Braves has a predominantly conservative fan base. The supposedly KKK-like Republicans he hates so much paid for his mansion.

Allen West, who grew up as a Braves fans, responds to Aaron’s foolishness:

Perhaps Mr. Aaron should remember that back then the folks in the hoods were Democrats. Perhaps Mr. Aaron should assess Barack Hussein Obama based upon his character and not his skin. Perhaps Mr. Aaron should realize that it was the former Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo) who stated that deference was given to Obama by blacks and that if anyone else were in the White House they would be marching. Perhaps Mr. Aaron should see that the national unemployment rate for blacks is 12.4 percent and there are no excuses. Perhaps Mr. Aaron needs to be reminded that Obama canceled the DC school voucher program for deserving minority (i.e. black) children in one of the nation’s worst school systems.

I am black, from Atlanta, raised by awesome parents, and based upon principle I challenge the policies of President Obama. Does that associate me with the KKK? …

Back in the day it was Democrats who stood outside the doors of higher education obstructing black children from attaining a better education and opportunity. Today, those same Democrats stand inside the doors of failing schools, trapping black children and obstructing them from seeking better education and opportunity. …

Hank Aaron hit 755 home runs in his magnificent career. He did it with his own skill and ability. He IS the standard by which all other home run hitters in baseball measure themselves — he is in the 1 percent and there was no fair share or shared home runs. He achieved it because of equality of opportunity, not equality of outcomes.

Well said, Lt. Col. West.

Aaron is significant because of his skill, not because of his fortuitous skin color or cretinous political views. Remembering that would unite rather than divide. But until we pass through this era of moonbattery, there is no avoiding politicization, whatever the topic.

This current story fittingly complements Aaron’s pernicious proclamations:

Startup Burrito Business Crushed by Social Justice Warriors on Grounds of Cultural Appropriation

Totalitarian political correctness has reached such a repressive extreme that white women are no longer allowed to run a business that serves burritos because that would be cultural appropriation.

Kali Wilgus and Liz “LC” Connelly learned what they could from tortilla ladies in Puerto Nuevo, Mexico, then applied the knowledge by starting up Kooks Burritos in Portland, Oregon. Unfortunately, it was so successful that social justice warriors found out about it after it was featured in a local paper. Their fist came down hard:

Getting a whiff of Wilgus and Connelly’s process of creating tortilla recipes, leftist outlets like Mic.com and The Portland Mercury pounced: painting the female entrepreneurs contributing to society as racist, sticky-fingered villains.

If naming a football team the “Redskins” is racist against Indians, then why can’t serving Mexican cuisine be racist against Mexicans?

Soon after, the business was forced into closing its doors, and its online presence has all but disappeared. The Portland Mercury called the closure a “victory.”

Evidently, only certified Mexicans are allowed to make burritos in militantly moonbatty Portland. It follows that only Mexicans should be allowed to eat them. Somehow, in the addled minds of liberal prigs, forbidding Mexican influence prevents Mexican culture from being “marginalized.”

If these people come after my tequila, there will be trouble.

Although the actual objective may appear to be bullying for the sake of bullying, oppression in the name of preventing “cultural appropriation” is consistent with broader liberal goals. America became so culturally rich because it was a melting pot that incorporated the best of what the rest of the world had to offer without losing its own identity. The goal of progressives is to destroy that identity through cultural Marxism. You can’t splinter America into warring fragments if you allow foreign influences to be absorbed.

At University of Maryland, Still More Arrogant Cultural Marxist Demands

The leftist strategy known as Cultural Marxism entails destroying a society by playing off marginalized groups against the core population. For decades, liberals have encouraged people to define themselves as members of groups that deviate from the norm, to pretend that they are oppressed, and to make outrageous demands. College campuses now sound like kennels due the forceful barking of these increasingly arrogant and tyrannical demands, such as a recent list moonbats at the University of Maryland want to impose in the name of “marginalized student populations”:

The project, known as ProtectUMD, is a collaborative effort between 25 student organizations at the University of Maryland, including Students for Justice in Palestine, Bisexuals at Maryland, and the Black Student Union.

There are 64 demands across 8 subsets of students—Marginalized, American Indian, Black, Latinx, LGBTQIA+, Muslim, Pro-Palestine, and Undocumented—including scholarships for “students of marginalized communities,” a ban on Columbus Day, beginning every on-campus event with an acknowledgement that “this is Indigenous Land,” that African American professors get tenure, that preferred pronouns are included on rosters, and that “queer diversity training” is required.

Muslim students also want “one room in each major building designated for prayer” and “shuttle services to [the local mosque] for Muslim students to have access to a place of worship.”

Among the Pro-Palestine demands, students want the administration to condemn the “conflation of Pro-Palestinian activism with Anti-Semitism,” claiming that “Pro-Palestinians do not reject the human rights of any group of people.”

Note that they not only demand special privileges and services, but the propagation of propaganda and the suppression of dissenting opinions.

If these bullies are marginalized, it is because they marginalize themselves in order to gain power over the rest of us.

They had better hope that the greater goal of destroying American society is never accomplished. Without the regular Americans that they feed on like remoras, they would soon be at each other’s throats. It’s happening already.

College Board Prepares Cultural Marxist Attack on American History

To fundamentally transform America into its opposite, social engineers must transform our conception of our nation. In part this is accomplished by rewriting history so that it supports the liberal narrative of evil white individualists (a.k.a. capitalists) oppressing saintly dark-skinned collectivists.

The College Board is preparing to release the final revision of its Advanced Placement examination for US history. This excerpt makes the objective clear:

“Students should be able to explain how various identities, cultures, and values have been preserved or changed in different contexts of U.S. history, with special attention given to the formation of gender, class, racial, and ethnic identities. Students should be able to explain how these subidentities have interacted with each other and with larger conceptions of American national identity.”

The Frankfurt School couldn’t have come up with a better definition of cultural Marxism, the strategy by which America’s core culture is destroyed through the fetishization of alienated subcultures.

The medical equivalent of putting this stuff in kids’ heads would be hooking them up to an IV filled with used motor oil.

Daniel Henninger explains how this pernicious, purposely subversive ideology came to be accepted:

It happened because weak school administrators and academics empowered tireless activists who forced all of American history and life through the four prisms of class, gender, ethnicity and identity. What emerged at the other end was one idea—guilt. I exist, therefore I must be guilty. Of something.

Being a product of the core American culture is the progressive version of original sin. Leftists have used their control of the education system to turn schools into churches that worship their ideology.
