Mourning In Marxist America

This article appeared originally on The Daily Caller.

Today is a day of great jubilation and celebration for us Americans who have suffered silently under the tyranny of financial repression, the suffocation of political correctness and the treachery of globalization for far too long. No matter what President Trump does during his first term, change is coming. That should give all of us hope that we can actually believe in this time.

Unlike previous elections in living memory, however, the losing side has not capitulated. They have not retreated to lick their wounds or re-evaluate their positions. They are doubling-down. The grieving process the neo-Marxist left in America is going through is not one that will lead to insight and growth. Instead, liberals are descending into a spiral of rabid emotionalism due to their obsessive belief that they have been personally violated by the election of President Trump.

When Obama was inaugurated in 2009, there were no violent protests, riots and mass demonstrations. We have already seen the left try to violently disrupt the celebrations leading up to President Trump’s inauguration. Prominent voices across the left have been calling for street violence and assassination since November.

For the left, they haven’t just lost an election. They’ve suffered the type of humiliating betrayal which becomes a vendetta burned into communal memory over time. Like Orthodox Serbians commemorating the Battle of Kosovo in 1389 or Shia Muslims flagellating themselves to mourn the martyrdom of Husayn ibn Ali in 680, the American left is not going to accept this electoral outcome in the way Democrats and Republicans have done in the past.

The reason liberals are reacting so personally and so violently to the election of President Trump is the religious basis of their beliefs about race, identity, gender and culture. From an early age, American students are taught that the foundation of righteousness is to demonstrate at all times a universalist attitude toward any aspect of a person’s identity. Overlaid with this is the incessant mantra that Christian white males have an innate and unfair privilege because they have monopolized violence over all other groups throughout history. This is a faith-based assertion. To progress through the American education system unimpeded and particularly to gain a higher degree, it must not be questioned.

Neo-Marxism in America is not just a political ideology or a philosophical viewpoint. It is a cult.

Unlike the Christian belief in redemption through faith in Jesus, for the Western neo-Marxist there is no redemption for the original sins of whiteness, straightness and maleness. Constant penance is required; incessant signaling of loathing for one’s own ancestors and expressions of admiration for the achievements of other groups. If you’re a straight, white, Christian male in liberal America, you’ve got a lot of virtue signaling to do before you can be accepted in polite company. That acceptance will always be conditional on your continued mental obeisance.

This is not the America that our forefathers labored and died to build and defend. It is an import, a European disease which spread along the coasts of America particularly after World War II. The neo-Marxist culture that liberals have created in America does not fit in the land of the free and the home of the brave. It is a slavish, collectivist and spineless mentality that rejects reason and truth in favor of dogma and groupthink.

Now that President Trump has been inaugurated, the danger is that the right will become complacent. Having thrown off the crippling constraints of conservatism and elected a president who has promised to butcher all the sacred cows of neo-Marxist political correctness and end policies leading to white demographic replacement, many right-thinking men and women will be tempted to believe the battle has been fought and won. This is how the left always bounces back, their ideological dogmas updated and their ranks renewed by a fresh generation who have been programmed by school and TV to believe that Christian white men stole the wealth of the world and maintain an invisible patriarchy which ensures their privilege.

One of the factors which historians attribute to America’s defeat in Vietnam was the inability of the US air force to destroy the factories which were manufacturing the weapons used by the Viet Cong. Throughout Russia and China, munitions were being created as quickly as US forces could destroy them on the Vietnamese battlefields. In this way partial warfare always meant only partial victories and thus ultimate defeat for the US.

This parallels the culture war that the right has been waging in America now for decades. Christians in America have been fighting fair against the creeping Marxist menace infecting the minds of our children through indoctrination, yet have been hampered by our inability to strike the opponent at their manufacturing base and destroy the left’s ability to keep losing the argument but keep on winning the culture war through fresh recruits.

This situation will continue until the sane and silent majority of Americans do something to stamp out Marxism in our education system. Academic tenure should be no protection for preachers of hate, and the same approaches should be applied to radical professors as to radical imams in extremist mosques. The difference between education and indoctrination is that one creates thinkers who question and the other creates fanatics who can’t. The screaming faces at President Trump’s inauguration show us how well the Marxist madrassas of America have done their job.

    The analogy regarding the factories in North Vietnam vis a vis Cultural Marxism in our universities and all our other major institutions, including our schools, is apt, though quite how we purge them all is still open to question.
    One feels instinctively that a major shift is occurring, and certainly this is what Geert Wilders, Marine Le Penn, Franke Petry and other European nationalists are suggesting right now, in Koblenz, Germany. One of the things that bothers me, though, is that our silent majorities, tend to simmer underground, where their resentments remain visceral and largely untapped. Trump appears to have tapped into their discontent, but can this be sustained? Can Trump indeed drain the swamp? Only time will tell, but I do admit to being more than a little anxious.
    Warty.

    • Agreed Warty. It’s always the fanatics who have the most energy. It’s a sad law of history.

      Warty2? Did you cross the PC police?

    You articulate what I have been thinking for a couple of decades now. I am a conservative high school teacher (Australia), and I have no choice but to teach politically correct History, Geography and English. Many times I have agreed with the comments of students, but I have to tow the politically correct line or I know what will happen. I know, towing the line is basically a cowards way, however, at 63 years old, I am too old to get other employment. Occasionally I can get away with the truth…when I teach the Crusades I teach historical facts such as the crusades were a defensive measure against Islam spreading violently towards Europe. If I had my time to do again, and I knew what I know now and I had the income (I raised my two kids on welfare after my ex left us, but when my kids were old enough I started the long trek to get educated at Uni, doing it on virtually nothing and no help), I would most definitely home school my kids. The longer I teach in a public school, the more I favour home schooling. Home schooling is not big in Australia like it is in America.
    Thanks for your website. I like a good, intelligently written read.

      Lady M, please excuse me for inserting a comment here. You might be interested in making a submission to this:

        Hi Karen, we already have the accreditation scheme here in New South Wales. We have 5 years to do 100 hours of professional development. If this is not completed within the time, we cannot teach in a New South Wales school. We have to pay $100 a year for the privilege of teaching, that’s $100 from every teacher in New South Wales, every year to the education department (personally I call it a bribe because that’s what it is…when the government tells us that unless we pay them money every year, we can’t teach, that’s a bribe in my book). We have to pay $80 to the education department so the powers that be can do a working with children check (the $80 lasts for 5 years, then we pay again). The 100 hours of professional development has to be recorded and proven. The amount of work that teachers have to do is incredible and is increasing every year. If one is not a teacher, or married to a teacher, or has a son or daughter who is a teacher, one has no idea whatsoever. I do get tired of people complaining about teachers when they have no clue. As the saying goes “If you want respect and appreciation, teach in Asia because you won’t get it in Australia.”
        Over these 5 weeks Christmas holidays, I took one week off to spend time with my family over Christmas, then for the last 4 weeks I have done school work almost every day. Hours every day. I go back to work on Friday and there is still so much I need to do to be ready for term 1, and guess what? It won’t be finished! My son has been astounded at the amount of work he has seen me do over the holidays (he moved from Queensland back to New South Wales in November, so that is good for me). He made a comment as he watched me work at the computer one day…he said “You know mum, to be a teacher, there just has to have a large percentage of love involved because with the amount of work I have seen you do, it sure isn’t all about the money.”
        It sounds like you are one of the few who appreciate teachers and for that I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

        • Karen Dwyer

          You have graced me with a deep honour, Lady M., as your deep heart is evident.

          I do appreciate the task of teaching, and I do think it is a vocation (among the decent).

          I hadn’t known of the precise terms ongoing in NSW, though, and I appreciate you taking the time to share that.
          Individual departments of education in Australia seem to be staffed increasingly by the compliance-compelling obsessed.

      • I wonder how many teachers would be ready to actually come out against PC and cultural Marxism if given the chance? I just finished interviewing 21 teachers for my PhD last year, and every one of them was burnt out to one degree or another. How much they link that back to the toxic belief system of the education system I’m not sure. It is a hard, hard job to do, and I saw many who ended up broken one way or another by the demands of it.

        Apologies by the way for not responding more often to comments, Karen. I do read and enjoy them.

        • Karen Dwyer

          The day job is so full on, there’s no time to formulate and foment action, I suspect. And the rules, regulations, and requirements are constantly changing. It’s a luxury many might desire but it’s a luxury. Even a listening ear and some respect would probably go a long way towards empowering teachers.Too many will be martyrs and not want to deprive students that are current, even if it is for the longer term benefit of those same students, future students, and themselves.

          But the social engineers are so busy loading the bricks without straw workload (you now how I feel about Safe Schools” & “Building Resilient Relationships” ) that there is not time for anything else. And parent expectations and demands are unrealistic and increasing, I believe. Possibly due to TV shows where classes have six students in it and all the time in the world for a romance with the principal.

          No worries re comments. You’ve acknowledged often enough, and generously. There are authors at the boys’ club that is XYZ who have never (& never will) respond to a comment or question from me. Not being a mind reader, I can only speculate why that is so. But I try to err on the side of generosity. 🙂

    • Hi LM

      I taught history in QLD for 7 years and know well how suffocating and horrible the schooling culture has become. It’s a moral vacuum. Seeing what it did to the good, gentle kids is part of why I hate, hate, hate Marxism so much. I see it as an utterly demonic false religion that has taken over our culture while the good people, the Christians and the sane, were sleeping.

      I hope to homeschool our toddler, but of course it’s tough in an economy designed to keep us all financially insecure and in debt. I might have to go back to teaching eventually; there’s no money in writing unfortunately and gotta pay the bills. I’m finishing a PhD this year but, from what I’ve seen, university culture is even worse. I picked the wrong damn career track when I was 20. Oh well. At least it keeps me angry, which I think keeps me writing. For free…

        Home education is a joy. And despised by the Marxists (as most joys seem to be!)

        Re-brand yourself as a life coach and motivational speaker. Departments of education ae willing to pay good money to experts who say the same as (or less than) their own teaching staff. I jest not. A catchy name, a “kit” and better yet rip off an idea that home educators have been using for decades, and you have a profitable business with flexible hours. You do have to be prepared to be a smiling assassin, though (not one of .my strengths).

        But I repeat: it is a joy to so definitely put that on your “towards” list. 🙂

    Really good stuff!

    In general, people have been sleep walking. And lacking in real knowledge. Despite all, there is a climate of “a war to end all wars” instead of recognising ongoing warfare – until That Day. And that there is no slacking off ever.
