Political Correctness (PC) is a principal tool of the
political left. Its purpose is to intimidate and to end the debate.
It is not politically correct to say, "the women's movement has
harmed the American family." That statement is sexist.
There can be no debate on whether the statement is true or
It is not politically correct to say, "African-Americans commit
crimes far beyond their relation to the overall population."
That statement is racist. There can be no debate on
whether the statement is true or false.
It is not politically correct to say, "the AIDS epidemic was a
result of the personal behavior of homosexuals." That
statement is homophobic. There can be no debate on whether
the statement is true or false.
These "good" cultural groups within our society
can not be examined openly or faulted -- only the authoritarian, white male
and non-feminist, white female are subject to
There is the African-American Studies Department that has banned
Othello, because it is racist and the radical feminist
professor who lectured a Modern Language Association meeting on the
witches as the true heroines of Macbeth.
These atrocities occur because the perpetrators are able to
plausibly demonstrate that
Shakespeare's intent is irrelevant. What is important, is the
racist or phallocentric subtext of which Shakespeare was
unconscious when he wrote. Any criticism of these views is
immediately labeled as racist or sexist -- debate over.
When the local Women's Studies or Third World Studies Department
organizes students to abandon the classics in favor of modern Black
and feminist authors, it is not that these modern writers are
better, but they are somehow more truthful because their
alienated prose reflects the modern social problems of which the
older authors (white men) were ignorant.
Students are being taught that language itself is merely a conglomeration of false names foisted upon
society by its oppressors, and are warned against logocentrism,
the bourgeois over-reliance on words.
How in Hell did all of this happen?
Cultural Marxism is the radical political philosophy that
is transforming America. The primary tool used to leverage this philosophy is Political Correctness.
incubator of this philosophy and its associated tools was the Communist think-tank, the Frankfurt School.
The Frankfurt School was formed in Germany as the Institute of
Social Research (Institut fŁr Sozialforschung) at Frankfurt
University in 1923 by a group of German intellectuals who shared
a common belief in Karl
Marxís theory of
Influenced by the failure of working-class revolutions in
Western Europe after World War I and by the rise of Nazism,
these men set out to select the parts of Marx's thought that
might apply to social conditions that Marx had never
experienced. They then drew on other schools of thought,
including Sigmund Freud, to fill in what they perceived to be
Marx's omissions, resulting in the concept of the "Cultural Revolution,"
first postulated by the Italian Marxist, Antonio Gramsci.
Gramsci observed that the traditional concept of revolution and
strategy were dead. Marxists needed to
wage a cultural revolution -- one directed toward the cultural
establishment, including the morality of the existing society,
with its goal being the complete disintegration of the
A modern utopia could then be constructed by idealistic intellectuals,
the elites, who would turn Western civilization upside
down. This utopia would be a product of their imagination
and one not open to criticism.
Coming to America
During the Nazi era the Frankfurt School relocated to
Switzerland in 1932. In 1935 the entire school was
transferred to New York City. It's members migrating to
major U.S. universities, such as, Columbia, Princeton, Brandeis,
and U. C. Berkeley.
In 1941 the school moved again -- this time -- to Hollywood.
In America, the task of the Frankfurt School was to
undermine its Judeo-Christian legacy through the Abolition of Culture (Aufhebung
der Kultur), and to implement new cultural forms that would
increase the alienation of the population, thus creating a new
After World War I and the rise of Hitler,
the Frankfurt School reconciled Marxist
theory with the reality of what the people and governments of
the world were experiencing. Each member of the school
adjusted Marx's theories with his personal changes and additions. They then used the fixed Marxist theory as a
measure of what would work in a modern society. These ideas came
to be known as Critical Theory.
Their emphasis on the "critical" component of theory was a
strategy to overcome the positivism and
materialism of their new homeland, with an emphasis on negation and
contradiction. In a
word, criticize everything.
An example of this exercise is the vilification of the Founding
Fathers as "sexist, slave-owning, 18th century white men in wigs
Critical theory rejected the ideal of Western Civilization in
the age of modern science. Validating theory by
empirical evidence was condemned as vastly overrated. Only
the elite were able to fashion truths from the observation
of the evidence. There would be no need to test hypotheses
against observation or experience. The superior mind of
the elite would decide which truths were true -- and which were
One of the basic tenets of Critical Theory was the need to break
down the contemporary family. The Institute scholars
preached that even a partial breakdown of parental authority in
the family might tend to increase the readiness of a coming
generation to accept social change. The "generation gap"
of the 1960's and the "gender gap" of the 1990's are two of the
elite's successes in transforming American culture into their
The Quiet Revolution
The quiet revolution is one that could be diffused throughout a
culture, over a period of time, to destroy it from within.
Since the civilized world had been thoroughly
saturated with Christianity for 2,000 years, a culture
based on this religion could only be captured from within.
Applying psychology to break
these traditions, beliefs, morals, and will of a people, could be
accomplished quietly and without the possibility of resistance.
Gramsci insisted that alliances with other leftist
groups would be essential to victory. These would include radical feminist groups, extremist
environmental organizations, so-called civil rights movements,
homosexual activists, anti-police associations, internationalist-minded groups,
liberal church denominations, and others. Working together,
these groups could create a united front working for the
destructive transformation of the Judeo-Christian culture of
By winning "cultural hegemony," Gramsci pointed out that they
could control the deepest wellsprings of human thought through
the medium of mass psychology. Indeed, men could be made to
"love their servitude." In terms of the gospel of the Frankfurt
School, resistance to cultural Marxism could be completely
negated by placing the resister in a psychic iron cage. The
tools of mass psychology could be applied to produce this
The essential nature of Gramsciís revolutionary strategy is
reflected in a 1990's book, "The Greening of America." In
this book, Charles Reich writes, ďThere is a
revolution coming. It will not be like revolutions of the past. It will originate with the individual and the culture, and it
will change the political structure as its final act. It will
not require violence to succeed, and it cannot be successfully
resisted by violence. This is the revolution of the New
Generation." Of course this New Generation would be Reichís
elite Boomer generation and the mantra for these New Age "foot
soldiers" of the Frankfurt School prophets, would be "have the
courage to change."
Herbert Marcuse, who was greatly influenced by the writings of
Gramsci, was one of the most
prominent Frankfurt School promoters of social
revolution among college and university students in the 1960s.
It was Marcuse that originated the "make love, not war"
Marxist theorist Georg Lukacs said, "Who will
save us from Western Civilization?" Just a few years
ago, on college campuses, students chanted "Hey hey, ho
ho, Western Civ has got to go." Where do you think they got that?
Most Americans do not yet realize that they are
being led by social revolutionaries who think in terms of the
destruction of the existing social order in order to create a
new social order in the world. These revolutionaries are the New
Age elite Boomers, the New Totalitarians. They now control
every public institution in the United States of America.
Their quiet revolution, which began with the counter-culture
revolution of their youth, is nearly complete. It is
based on the intellectual foundation of the cultural Marxists of
the Frankfurt School. Its completion depends on keeping
the American male and non-feminist female in their psychic iron cage.
Cultural Marxism is a marriage of Marx and Freud and was introduced into mainstream American life over a
period of thirty years.
In classical Marxism, workers and peasants, are good, and the
bourgeoisie and capital owners are evil. In Cultural
Marxism, feminist women, blacks,
Hispanics, homosexuals and other minorities are good.
These "victim groups"
have replaced the peasant and are automatically "good," regardless of what any of them
do. Similarly, white males and non-feminist females are determined automatically to
be "evil," thereby becoming the equivalent of the bourgeoisie in
The confluence of radical feminism and cultural Marxism within
the span of a single generation has imposed this yoke on the American male
and non-feminist female. It remains to be seen whether or
not they will continue their voluntary
submission to a future of slavery in a new American matriarchy,
the precursor to a state of complete anarchy.
The Authoritarian Personality
Central to the Frankfurt School's studies was the concept of the
Authoritarian Personality. This concept describes a number
of qualities, which according to the theories of Theodor Adorno
and his colleagues, predict one's potential for fascist and
antidemocratic leanings and behaviors.
The Frankfurt School theorized that the "authoritarian
personality" is a product of the patriarchal family. This idea
is in turn directly connected to Frederich Engelsí "The Origins
of the Family, Private Property and the State," that promotes
matriarchy. It was Karl Marx who wrote about the
radical notion of a "community of women" in the Communist
Manifesto and who wrote disparagingly about
the idea that the family was the basic unit of society in "The
German Ideology" of 1845.
The concept of the "Authoritarian Personality" prepared the way for the
subsequent warfare against the masculine gender promoted by
Herbert Marcuse and his band of social revolutionaries under the
guise of "womenís liberation" and the New Left movement in the
The transformation of American culture envisioned by the
Cultural Marxists is based on matriarchal theory. That is,
they propose transforming American culture into a
female-dominated one. This is a direct throwback to
Wilhelm Reich, a Frankfurt School member who considered
matriarchal theory in psychoanalytic terms. In 1933, he
wrote in "The Mass Psychology of Fascism" that matriarchy was
the only genuine family type of natural society.
Eric Fromm, another charter member of the Institute, was also
one of the most active advocates of matriarchal theory.
Fromm was especially taken with the idea that all love and
altruistic feelings were ultimately derived from the maternal
love necessitated by the extended period of human pregnancy and
postnatal care. Love was thus not dependent on sexuality,
as Freud had supposed. In fact, Fromm observed, sex was
more often tied to hatred and destruction.
Masculinity and femininity were not reflections of essential
sexual differences, as the romantics had thought. They
were derived instead from differences in life functions, which
were in part socially determined. This dogma was the
precedent for today's radical feminist pronouncements.
Art of Facilitation
Abraham Maslow, a member of the Frankfurt school, was the author
of "The Art of Facilitation," a manual used during sensitivity'
training. Teachers were indoctrinated not to teach but to
facilitate. This manual describes the techniques developed
by Kurt Lewin and others to change a person's world view via
participation in small-group encounter sessions.
Teachers were to become amateur group therapists. The
classroom became the center of self-examination, therapeutic
circles where children, and later on, military personnel, talked
about their own subjective feelings. This technique was
designed to convince children they were the sole authority in
their own lives.
Maslow, who was the founder of Third Force Humanist Psychology
and a promoter of the psychotherapeutic classroom, wrote,
"...the next step in personal evolution is a transcendence of
both masculinity and femininity to general humanness."
Breakdown of the Culture
But how can we claim that the causes of the breakdown in our
schools, our universities, indeed, the very fiber of our culture
were a product of a tiny group of intellectuals who immigrated
from Germany in 1933? Given all of the special-interest groups
involved in these activities, how can we trace these causes to
the Frankfurt school? Look at some of the evidence.
As an example, postmodern reconstruction of the history of
Western Civilization (now prevalent in our universities) has its
roots in the Critical Theory of the Frankfurt School. This
rewriting of history by the postmodern scholars in America has
only recently come under attack. Keith Windschuttle, in his
book, "Killing of History," has severely criticized the rush to
relativism by historiographers. What is truly astonishing,
however, is that relativism has largely supplanted the pursuit
of truth as a goal in historical study.
How did this situation come about in Americaís universities?
Gertrude Himmelfarb has observed that it slipped past those
traditional academics almost unobserved until it was too late. It occurred so quietly that when they looked up,
postmodernism was upon them with a vengeance. They were
surrounded by a tidal wave of faddish multicultural subjects
such as radical feminism, deconstructed relativism as history
and other courses which undermine the perpetuation of Western
Civilization. Indeed, this tidal wave slipped by just as Antonio Gramsci and the Frankfurt School had envisioned
-- a quiet
revolution. A revolution that could not be resisted by force.
It is important to realize that this movement, Cultural
Marxism, exists, to understand where it came from, and what its
objectives were and are -- the complete destruction of Western Civilization
in America. These cultural Marxists aim to destroy,
slowly but surely, from the bottom up, the entire fabric of
Toleration had never been an end in itself for the Frankfurt
School, and yet the non-authoritarian (utopian) personality,
insofar as it was defined, was posited as a person with a
non-dogmatic tolerance for diversity. This thought is
dominant in todayís power elite of the Boomer generation, the
If we allow this subversion of American values and interests to
continue, we will (in future generations) lose all that our
ancestors suffered and died for. We are forewarned. A reading of
history -- it is all in mainstream historical accounts -- tells us
that we are about to lose the most precious thing we have -- our
Now that these elite Boomers are in positions of power in the
United States, they are completing their work of destroying
every institution that has been built up over 200 years of
A History of "Political Correctness"
New Zeal blog has a
history of "political correctness" -- or more accurately
Cultural Marxism. Trevor Loudon comments, "Not complete and a
little unsynchronized, but a must watch."
Americans Say U.S. Is Too Politically
It may not be politically correct to say it,
but most Americans think the countryís gotten too PC and see that as a
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone
survey finds that 57% of Adults believe America today has become too
politically correct, while just 23% say the country is not politically
correct enough. Eleven percent (11%) say the balance is about
Some people think that government officials too often
override the facts and common sense in the name of political
correctness, and 74% regard political correctness as a problem in
America today. Thirteen percent (13%) disagree and say itís not a
problem, and 13% more are not sure.
Sixty-three percent (63%) of
voters said last November that political correctness prevented the U.S.
military from responding to warning signs that could have prevented
Major Nidal Malik Hasan from massacring 13 people and wounding many
others at Fort Hood, Texas.
Itís important to note that
the questions did not define political correctness in any way.
The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines political correctness as
"conforming to a belief that language and practices which could offend
political sensibilities (as in matters of sex or race) should be
eliminated," and it has come to be understood by many as prohibiting
critical comments about politically sensitive topics and groups.
The Illusion of Safety
says the implementation of the
new TSA passenger screening policy is indicative of just how politically
correct and moronic our society is becoming.
When Americans fly, we can now choose between being
photographed in the nude and being fondled. Yet since 9/11, America has
been attacked in the air only by radical Muslim males. Therefore,
Homeland Security has concluded that we should search 80-year-old
grandmaís bra lines.
What kind of
country are we becoming when our citizens are forced to endure such
invasive searches without due process in an effort to appease the very
group of people who are seeking to destroy our country?
Instead of calling out the real
threat, Islamic radicalism, American policy is turning to the
politically correct and untrue assumption that everyone is a suspected
terrorist. Of course, it is not unusual to find enactments of political
correctness accompanied by untruths.
It is slowly becoming evident that this administration is more
concerned with presenting an illusion of equality and fairness than it
is with the safety of the American public. Unfortunately, the logic in
this policy is lacking. Americans know that Muslim men attacked us on
9/11, the underwear bomber was a radical Muslim man, the army base
shooter was a radical Muslim, and there have been numerous attempts by
radical Muslim men since 9/11 to harm Americans.
So while terrorists visit the State Department, America
gives access to our court system to suspected terrorists, CAIR gains
influence with Democratic law makers, and mosques are built next to the
9/11 World Trade Center, Americans once again fall victim to the
terrorists at the hands of our own government. Even worse is that our
government is refusing to call a spade a spade.
Young white men are statistically more likely to be
serial killers than Eskimo women between the ages of 60 and 72. Yet why
are law enforcement officials refusing to investigate these women each
time a serial killer is suspected? The answer is obvious, and the
strategies surrounding profiling help to catch these brutal killers.
Americans know that the problem isnít hijacking, the
government knows, and the government knows that Americans know. The
problem of terrorist threats consists of radical Muslim men.
The sooner our government wakes up
and recognizes the problem that everyone knows exists, the sooner
America will emerge safer and stronger.
Even if you disagree with profiling, when Americans are forced to
be viewed naked or searched in the most intimate of places when there is
a viable, more practical, and more effective way of using resources and
ensuring safety, forcing honest Americans selected at random to invasive
searches is absurd.
comfort, America. Children under the age of 12 are not subject to the
search. Radical Muslim men can now bring their children with them, arm
them with explosives, and blow us up anyway.
How Political Correctness Gave America A
Kelly O'Connell says "The Human Stain," Philip
Rothís seminal novel regarding Political Correctness (PC), racism, and
the insipid hypocrisy of leftist morality, is a fitting backdrop to
Barack Obamaís improbable presidency. In the story, Professor
Coleman Silk, a half-Black Jewish professor, posing as a White man, is
taken down by the mechanical application of PC rules to an accidental
insult he gave to two African-Americans.
Now, we can introduce
the 800-pound donkey in the room. Letís ask a simple question:
Could Obama have been elected without the doctrine known as Political
Or is simply to ask the question an unforgivable
act of racism? In fact, the vast majority of Americans realize no
person as inexperienced, untested, wildly liberal, or of such
questionable past could ever have hoped to be elected without some kind
of uncanny boost. But what is the result of this presidency based
on nonsensical ideological doctrine? And what can be done to fight
off the rise of the unscrupulous, unethical, incompetent and unqualified
spore of the PC movement?
This is the question addressed in
