The quote above shamelessly stolen from the sublime Jeff Goldstein.
His post above is about a person discovering the pod people around him. I’ve been procrastinating on doing a post about how the pod people developed but I came across so much useful material this weekend I knew it was time to share. My ultimate result is to educate and inform on how we got here and how to fight back. Long story short, we got here by an intense media, education, and social campaign to rob us of our national identity.
American Thinker, one of my favorite sites, has several posts about “Cultural Marxism” that are important to read since they get to the heart of the matter.
Because the New Left lacked cohesion it fell apart as a political movement. However, its revolutionaries reorganized themselves into a multitude of single issue groups. Thus we now have for example, radical feminists, black extremists, anti-war ‘peace’ activists, animal rights groups, radical environmentalists, and ‘gay’ rights groups. All of these groups pursue their piece of the radical agenda through a complex network of organizations such as the Gay Straight Lesbian Educators Network (GSLEN), the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), People for the American Way, United for Peace and Justice, Planned Parenthood, Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS), and Code Pink for Peace.
These groups are the petty tyrants that want to control you. We’ve all encountered them or we’ve encountered people that unknowingly and reflexively spew their nonsense. These are the enemies of free thought, morality, wisdom, and knowledge. You’ll know them by their lazy thinking masquerading as superior intellect. But don’t dare confront them. If you start poking around their intellectual house of cards, they get violent.
The principles upon which Western culture rests and upon which America was built are under attack by these slow acting but deadly forces. The drumbeat is grinding down the will of the West to maintain itself. The ideas of individual sovereignty and responsibility, natural rights, and objective truth have been derided by the left to the point that many of our young people reject them, if, indeed, they are even aware of them as the basis for our culture. All that ensures that a culture will pass its ideas down from one generation to the next is its cultural memory. The drumbeat is slowly but surely replacing our cultural memory.
The Drumbeat of cultural Marxism is beating. My oldest goes to public school in a conservative State but I find I still have to deprogram her after school. Her intellectual freedoms are assaulted daily by the multicultural madness that infects every public school program. She isn’t old enough to understand but I asked her “what if these programs aren’t really intended to make us appreciate us but instead are meant to divide us?” She’s 9 and very smart. It’s that little seed I planted that will make her question things. We should all plant those seeds so our children won’t be transformed by the Comprachicos.
