  • Whose Year Is It?

    Illinois Review ^ | October 8, 2020 A.D. | John F Di Leo
    “This is our year!” It’s a declaration of confidence, or of hope, or of determination. A declaration known to people in many walks of life, from private to public. Agents say it to actors and singers, as the Oscar, Emmy, and CMA nominations come out. “They’ve passed you over before, but this is our year!” Coaches say it to sports teams, to inspire their players before the season opener. “Last year was lousy, but look at the schedule, look at the opposition, look at our great starters! This is our year!” Families say it to each other on New Year’s...

    Paul Kengor is a professor of political science at Grove City College in Grove City, Pennsylvania. He has just published "The Devil and Karl Marx," a careful look at the diabolical side of Karl Marx. The book has come out during an important time in our history since so many Americans, particularly our youth, have fallen for the seductive siren song of socialism taught to them by the academic elite. "The Black Book of Communism," edited by Stephane Courtois, details the Marxist-Leninist death toll in the 20th century. Here is the breakdown: USSR, 20 million deaths; China, 65 million; Vietnam,...
  • So Why Not Cancel Leftist Karl Marx?

    Racism and Jew-hate were second nature to socialism's Godfather. Reprinted From the American Spectator. In a cancel culture targeting everyone from Confederate to Union generals, Columbus to Winston Churchill, Francis Scott Key to even Abraham Lincoln and all of Mt. Rushmore, and where the racial statements and attitudes of every historical figure are scrutinized, it’s funny who gets a pass. A 16-foot-tall bronzed Vladimir Lenin stands unscathed in liberal Seattle, and a new monument to the Bolshevik godfather just went up in Germany. Particularly curious, one wonders why Karl Marx goes untouched. There are monuments to Marx in Europe, one...

    Most people who call themselves Marxists know very little of Karl Marx's life and have never read his three-volume "Das Kapital." Volume I was published in 1867, the only volume published before Marx's death in 1883. Volumes II and III were later edited and published in his name by his friend and collaborator Friedrich Engels. Most people who call themselves Marxist have only read his 1848 pamphlet "The Communist Manifesto," which was written with Engels. Marx is a hero to many labor union leaders and civil rights organizations, including leftist groups like Black Lives Matter, Antifa and some Democratic Party...

    To understand just how normalized radical ideas are on college campuses, look at the curriculum for which students pay thousands and thousands of dollars. From their first steps on campus for orientation to walking across the stage on graduation day, students are usually bombarded with leftist propaganda. College campuses facilitate the perfect environment for indoctrination, providing a platform for radical professors to teach their opinion as fact. As a young woman in college, I know firsthand how difficult it can be to stand behind conservative values in the face of leftist campus culture.Conservative parents are in a catch-22. While still...

    If we’re inclined to glide past the Marxist fingerprints all over America’s current turmoil, assuming its ideas will flare up for a while and then burn out, we’re not paying attention. American institutions have stoked the coals of Karl Marx’s destructive ideology, fanning its flames until his notions have consumed our cultural pillars.Far from being forgotten and irrelevant, Marx’s ideas pervade key institutions, from universities and schools, to mass media and popular entertainment, to major corporations and medicine, to the arts and sciences. They’ve even seeped into many churches and seminaries. Of course, they also define the Democratic Party, Joe...

    Is the multicultural campaign really about diversity? Or is it about stamping out Western civilization and the "white race" itself? College students will tell you that a university education today is a guilt trip for whites. The purpose is to prevent whites from appreciating and absorbing their own culture, and to make it difficult for whites to resist the unreasonable demands (quotas, reparations, etc.) from "people of color." To the questions, "Who am I? What am I?" the white university graduate answers, "a racist, sexist, homophobic oppressor." Neither parents, trustees, alumni nor the public are aware of the anti-white...

    In a bizarre move, a major magazine designed to influence an entire generation of teenagers — Teen Vogue — tweeted “Welcome to Marx!,” promoting a 2018 article hailing Karl Marx as a “legend” and adding that the communist philosopher’s ideas “are more prevalent than you might realize.” “You may have come across communist memes on social media,” begins the 2018 Teen Vogue piece. “The man, the meme, the legend behind this trend is Karl Marx, who developed the theory of communism, which advocates for workers’ control over their labor (instead of their bosses).” But of course, anyone who has studied...

    German bishop exalts 'freedom'MUNICH (ChurchMilitant.com) - German Cdl. Reinhard Marx is criticizing Church faithful who "push a relationship of pure obedience to God," elevating "freedom" instead as a virtue worth emulating. In his new book titled Freedom (Freiheit), the archbishop of Munich and Freising regrets that Catholics "do not really integrate the idea of freedom into their faith." "I want to be a free person," writes Marx in his new book. "The biblical God is a God of liberation," Marx says. "He created man in freedom and wanted him to respond to it in freedom. This requires freedom of religion...

    “The Communist Manifesto” got a shoutout during the 2020 Oscars. Julia Reichert, the co-director of best documentary winner “American Factory,” which was produced by former President Barack Obama’s new film company, apparently quoted from Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels’ infamous book during her acceptance speech on Sunday night. “Working people have it harder and harder these days — and we believe that things will get better when workers of the world unite,” Reichert said. The quote appeared to be a riff on the last lines of the 1848 political document, which are frequently translated from German as “Workers of the...

Now there’s an app for that.

    Karl Marx’s grave in Highgate Cemetery, London, has been defaced with anti-Communist graffiti, branding the dead thinker an “architect of genocide”. Marx intellectual is memorialised with a huge stone plinth in the cemetery, crowned by a huge bust of his head. An unidentified individual or individuals defaced the plinth with red spraypaint, reading “Memorial to Bolshevik Holocaust”, “66,000,000 DEAD”, “Architect of Genocide, terror + oppression, Mass Murder”, “Ideology of Starving”, and “Doctrine of HATE”. The German Jewish intellectual played no direct role in the notoriously bloodstained communist revolutions and one-party regimes of the 20th century, dying in England in 1883...

    Today’s Democrat Party continues to lurch to the extreme Left as evidenced by its political, economic, and social policies. Politically, Democrats favor policies like open borders, “justice reform” that essentially means letting guilty people go if they’re part of a minority group, and anything that Republicans and POTUS Donald Trump don’t want. Economically, the party is closer to Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin than Adam Smith, the latter of whom is credited with being the “father of modern capitalism.” Socially, the party is anti-life and pro-murder — there’s just no other way to say it. While Democrats shed tears for...

    Friends of Highgate Cemetery calls attack a ‘particularly inarticulate form of political comment’ The tomb of Karl Marx at London’s Highgate cemetery has been vandalised in a targeted attack that means the Grade I-listed monument will “never be the same again”. The suspected vandal damaged a marble plaque which was taken from Marx’s original 1881 gravestone and incorporated into the 1954 monument. Images of the defaced memorial, which attracts tens of thousands of visitors each year, show what appears to be damage done by a hammer to the lettering of Marx’s name and the marble on which it is mounted....

    The thought of Karl Marx, a German political agitator whose theory of “scientific socialism” wreaked havoc on the world for most of the 20th century, would seem to have been consigned to the ash heap of history following the fall of the Eastern Bloc communist regimes from 1989 to 1991. After decades of mass murder claiming tens of millions of victims, as well as the totalitarian oppression of hundreds of millions more, the reputation of Marxism had been destroyed almost completely, seemingly assuring its final demise.However, a resurgence of interest in Marx’s thought has been ongoing since 2008, when the...

    Mexicans love mayonnaise. They ordered a huge shipment and a ship sailed from Europe with a full shipment of Mayonnaise. As it was crossing the Bermuda Triangle, it mysteriously began sinking. The captain wired the shipping company in Europe, "we have run into a serious problem in the Bermuda Triangle, and ship is sinking". The captain was not good in Spanish, so he wired port authorities in Mexico, "Sinko De Mayo". Later on it was changed to Cinco de Mayo!
