  • Cultural Marxism Is the Main Source of Modern Confusion—and It's Spreading

    Another name for the neo-Marxism of increasing popularity in the United States is "cultural Marxism.” This theory says the driving force behind the socialist revolution is not the proletariat—but the intellectuals. While Marxism has largely disappeared from the workers' movement, Marxist theory flourishes today in cultural institutions, in the academic world, and in the mass media. This “cultural Marxism” goes back to Antonio Gramsci (1891-1937) and the Frankfurt School. The theorists of Marxism recognized that the proletariat would not play the expected historical role as a “revolutionary subject.” Therefore, for the revolution to happen, the movement had to depend on...

    Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Friday night said the way the Allied Powers defeated the Nazis during World War II provides a blueprint for how the United States should defeat global warming. Ocasio-Cortez appeared at a climate change town hall in College Point, a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens, where she discussed her "radical" plan to tackle global warming, according to a clip first flagged by the Republican National Committee.

    The way I see it, the Democrat political party is made up of Socialists, sexual perverts, druggies, criminals, Muslims and clueless people who would circumvent our laws and try to destroy our Christian nation – some just to have their fifteen minutes of supposed fame by burning and defecating on the American flag – in public. Democrats are so determined to destroy the current administration that they will say or do anything to do so. Things have gotten so out of hand that Democrats will even disrupt Senator Cruz’s meal at a restaurant or issue death threats against political opponents...

    I think like many inventors who have something precious to offer the world, they sometimes don't know how precious their creation is. And JP has created a wondrous worldview that is helping people - and society - align with an improved future. And, sadly, his tweet requesting that Judge Kavanaugh should resign showed no respect at all for his own creation and he is struggling to know why. He gave an insightful comment a couple of weeks back - that the left uses the natural system of categorization - something that is absolutely essential to our own ability to deal...

    RIO DE JANEIRO - Barbara Aires, who was assigned male at birth, says she spent much of her childhood on the streets, because her father — a military man from the conservative state of Minas Gerais — refused to accept her gender identity. By her late teenage years, Aires was taking hormones to transition to a woman and, because she couldn't find other employment, working as a prostitute - the fate of many transgender people who are shunned by much of Brazilian society. Today, Aires is running to be a state representative in Rio de Janeiro, aiming to help other...

    For the last century control of the United States has cycled between the 19th Century Democratic and Republican parties. Voters choose between the old ideas of the Democratic Party and the old ideas of the Republican Party. The two parties are mired in the same old partisan conflicts election after election. The Democrats in particular seem more interested in playing partisan political games than in dealing seriously with the nation's problems. Republicans are increasingly following their example. Millennials need to decide whether they want to continue the politics of their grandparents' generation or replace the 19th Century parties with 21st...

    Blogger ^ | Sep 2018 | Ilya Zabezhinsky
    Ilya Zabezhinsky, an Orthodox commentator from the Northern capital [of St. Petersburg], says that the Russian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate by its promotion of the Kremlin’s agenda of “a Russian world” has failed in its Christian mission to the peoples of the former USSR and been reduced to a small national church of the Russian Federation. Under Patriarch Kirill and President Vladimir Putin, the writer says, the Russian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate has become “the ideological department of the powers that be of the Russian Federation and essentially ceased to be the Russian Orthodox Church. Instead,...

    From the article: "some of the most important of the Soviet Union’s memetic weapons. Here is that list again: There is no truth, only competing agendas. All Western (and especially American) claims to moral superiority over Communism/Fascism/Islam are vitiated by the West’s history of racism and colonialism. There are no objective standards by which we may judge one culture to be better than another. Anyone who claims that there are such standards is an evil oppressor. The prosperity of the West is built on ruthless exploitation of the Third World; therefore Westerners actually deserve to be impoverished and miserable. Crime...
  • Don’t be fooled – Karl Marx was a hate-filled totalitarian whose ideas killed millions

    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...

    There was no honeymoon for the unlikely winner of the 2016 election. Progressives have in succession tried to sue to overturn Trump’s victory using several different approaches. First on the bogus claim of fraudulent voting machines. Then they sought to subvert the Electoral College by bullying electors into renouncing their respective states’ votes. Massive protests and boycotts marked the inauguration. Then there were articles of impeachment introduced in the House. Some sued to remove Trump on a warped interpretation of the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution. Others brought in psychiatrists to testify that Trump was ill, disabled, or insane and...

    How a 1980s sci-fi flick became an inspiration for Marxist tracts"I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass. And I’m all out of bubblegum.” It’s one of my favorite movie lines of all time, but there are other reasons I love John Carpenter’s sci-fi action movie They Live, which celebrates its 30th anniversary later this year. Starring the 1980s professional wrestler “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, it is one of the best B-movies of the era. Kurt Russell was supposed to play the lead role, but Carpenter felt that after directing so many Russell vehicles, he should go with someone...

    The Hungarian government is discontinuing programs in gender studies at state-run universities after determining the programs serve no identifiable purpose and are based on “ideology rather than science.” Bence Rétvári, Secretary of State of the Ministry of Human Resources (EMMI), said that university degrees must be rooted in a scientific basis, whereas gender studies, “like Marxist-Leninism,” are more aptly termed ideology than science, and are inappropriate matter for university-level education. A spokesman for the Hungarian government told Breitbart News that there is no demand for gender studies graduates in the Hungarian job market.

    08/01/2018 | Brian Griffin
    To pay off the ~$21 trillion dollar federal debt, which amounts to about $60,000 per American, it is probably necessary to have annual federal wealth taxation. It is best to introduce the federal wealth tax when asset values are high, so a smaller percentage of rich people's assets have to get taxed to pay off the national debt. The tax might be levied upon the total of net personal property financial holdings and the equity in real property. The rates might be: 1% on the equity in real property habitually resided in by the filer(s), 2% on the equity in...

    A new opinion piece in a Texas State University student newspaper tells white students “Your DNA is an Abomination.” “When I think of all the white people I have ever encountered - whether they’ve been professors, peers, lovers, friend, police officers, et cetera - there is perhaps only a dozen I would consider ‘decent,’” student author Rudy Martinez writes in the University Star. Without much biological explanation, Martinez informs white readers, “You were not born white. You became white… You don’t give a damn.” Later in his rant, he calls the police “fascist foot soldiers” and says a “white supremacist...

    An op-ed in a Texas State University student newspaper Tuesday has sparked controversy for its blatant anti-white racism, according to the Washington Examiner. In "Your DNA is an Abomination," which seems to have been pulled from the pages of the University Star, philosophy student and self-proclaimed Marxist atheist Rudy Martinez begins by declaring that of all the white people he has ever encountered, "there is perhaps only a dozen I would consider 'decent.'" He went on to blather that "whiteness in the United States" is a "construct used to perpetuate a system of racist power" and that whites benefit from...
