OUR INCREASINGLY UNRECOGNIZABLE CIVILIZATION BY MARK STEYN

We have to stand firm and stop this assault on our country. Call it what it is – Cultural Marxism which is designed to weaken and undermine America.  .  Nancy

Our Increasingly Unrecognizable Civilization

April/May 2021   by Mark Steyn
Mark Steyn, host of The Mark Steyn Show, writes regularly at steynonline.com and has contributed to numerous publications, including the Daily TelegraphThe Irish TimesThe Wall Street Journal, and The Jerusalem Post. He is the author of several books, including Lights Out: Islam, Free Speech, and The Twilight of the WestAmerica Alone: The End of the World As We Know It, and The [Un]documented Mark Steyn. A frequent guest host of Tucker Carlson Tonight, he was for 15 years a guest host of The Rush Limbaugh Show. His albums include Making Spirits Bright, with Jessica Martin, and Feline Groovy: Songs for Swingin’ Cats. From 2008 to 2013, he was a Eugene C. Pulliam Distinguished Visiting Fellow in Journalism at Hillsdale College.

The following is adapted from a speech delivered on April 26, 2021, at a Hillsdale College National Leadership Seminar in Franklin, Tennessee.

I live about 20 minutes south of the Canadian border, which used to be called the longest undefended frontier in the world. People moved freely back and forth across it all day every day. But now it’s been closed for over a year. At one point my daughter asked me to drive her up there, because there was a 30-minute opportunity for people on one side to talk to their friends on the other. “Sad!” as President Trump would say. It was like Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin during the Cold War, except that both sides are now like East Berlin. 

I don’t know how this happened, but it is just one indication that America, and the West in general, have become almost unrecognizable from what they were not that long ago.

Look at just three things we have lost. 

One is equality before the law, something absolutely essential to a free society. In its place, we now have politicized law. If a policeman fatally shoots someone, whether his name is released to the public depends on whether the shooting is consistent with the preferred narrative of the ruling class. A policeman recently took down a young woman who was threatening the life of another young woman with a knife, and that policeman was immediately identified—indeed, his photo was posted and he was threatened by NBA superstar LeBron James on Twitter. On the other hand, we know nothing of the policeman who shot dead an unarmed woman in the U.S. Capitol on January 6. His name will apparently never be released to the public.

Second, border control. Functioning societies, at least since the Peace of Westphalia three centuries ago, have borders. America has no southern border and no plans to get one. The official position of our government seems to be that any of the seven billion persons on this planet has a right to come and stay in the U.S. for three years, until his or her assigned court date comes up. As the number of people with pending cases continues to grow, that three years will extend out to five or seven or 15 years. If we get all seven billion people to come here, the court system will break down entirely and maybe we can go back to having a functioning border.

And third, dare I bring up the fact that it is a real question whether we can go back to agreeing to have open and honest elections? And if we don’t have open and honest elections, control of our borders, and equality before the law, then we don’t have the conditions for politics or free government.

STUDENT INDOCTRINATION – UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL

Thursday, May 27th, 2021

 

One of our readers has shared this information from a school that their child attends.  This is pure indoctrination and to think this all began  with prayers that were not allowed in schools back in the 1960’s.  The Far Left Marxists have been wildly successful in influencing  how our children are being taught. Is it any wonder that all this indoctrination has been happening while the math and science core scores of our children have been falling. 
I have taken the liberty to delete information about which school this is and where it is located.   Nancy    

Dear 7th and 8th Grade Families,

This year, our 7th and 8th grade students have worked hard, online and in person, to explore their own racial identities, learn more about how systemic racism is embedded into America’s past, and interrogate how racism shows up in our communities in the present day. Now, it is time to turn our eyes toward the future.

Next week, via Zoom, students will have the chance to convene in order to discuss how we can make change in the community. Students will discuss action-oriented questions in breakout spaces with the goal of increasing students’ collective activism and cultivating hope for the future.

Connections to our classes:

Throughout 7th and 8th grade students have been studying various texts that dive into the themes of systemic racism, activism, and social justice. Even more so than in a traditional school year, students have had the opportunity to learn separately, which has brought many of our students, as the school’s leaders, to the question: what’s next? Many have asked, “how can we use our power as students to actually make change happen?” Ideas and transformative change often arise in community – which is the purpose of “The Convening”. This will be a space where students can meet to reflect, discuss, and move forward social justice and change within our community.

CLOWARD-PIVEN STRATEGY EXPLAINED

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2021

 

This is exactly what has been  happening in our country and was begun back in 1966.  The Far Left has been using this strategy to overwhelm our systems and destroy our country.  It is very plainly to be seen happening right now on how  our southern border is being overwhelmed and the many onerous bills that are originating in the House of Representatives — HR1 that will destroy our election system, the Equality Act that will ruin women’s sports, the  gun control bills that will reduce our rights to protect ourselves, and a ballooning national debt that will bankrupt our country. The riots from this summer by BLM and Antifa were designed to add fuel to the fire and increase racial strife and further divide our nation.  In order to fight this planned  attack on our country, we have to understand exactly what methods the Far Left/Democrat Party  is using to intimidate and silence us.     Nancy  

CLOWARD-PIVEN STRATEGY  (CPS)

www.discoverthenetworks.org/organizations/clowardpiven-strategy-cps#resources

  • Strategy for forcing political change through orchestrated crisis

First proposed in 1966 and named after Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and his wife Frances Fox Piven — both longtime members of the Democratic Socialists of America, where Piven today is an honorary chair — the “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.

Inspired by the August 1965 riots in the black district of Watts in Los Angeles — which erupted after police used batons to subdue a black man suspected of drunk driving — Cloward and Piven published an article titled “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty” in the May 2, 1966 issue of The Nation. Following its publication, The Nation sold an unprecedented 30,000 reprints. Activists were abuzz over the so-called “crisis strategy” or “Cloward-Piven Strategy,” as it came to be called. Many were eager to put it into effect.

RADICAL ACTIVISTS OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY

Sunday, August 30th, 2020

 

There are several videos in this article and if you click on the link to the article, you will be able to view the videos.  Even though this article was written in February of this year, it is very relevant in discussing the history of the radical activism of today’s  Democrat Party.    As conservatives, we have to  realize that these radical activists are completely dedicated to their ideology and they will not be defeated even if President Trump wins in November.  In fact, his win will probably enrage them even more.   This is going to be a long term struggle to keep our country free.     Nancy

2020 Elections: Democrat Party Activists

Posted at 12:30 pm on February 7, 2020   

  by Stu Cvrk 

Biography of the author of this article:

Stu Cvrk served 30 years in the US Navy in a variety of active and reserve capacities, with considerable operational experience in the Middle East and the Western Pacific. An oceanographer and systems analyst through education and experience, Stu is a graduate of the US Naval Academy where he received a classical liberal education which serves as the key foundation for his political commentary. He threads daily on Twitter on a wide range of political, military, foreign policy, government, economics, and world affairs topics.

All of the energy in the Democrat Party these days is contained within the radical base of activists who are entirely motivated to replace President Trump with a socialist Democrat (there is no other variety of national Democrat these days). We have seen direct evidence of their radicalism and hatred for Trump supported in particular thanks to the recent exposure of Bernie Sanders’ campaign workers by Project Veritas. Here is Part IV of the series of videos. These people are hardcore Communists

The dirty little secret is that these radicals aren’t just in Bernie’s campaign. They infest the campaign apparatuses of the other candidates, too. How did the Democrat Party evolve to its current leftwing ideological state, and where did all these radical activists come from? Let us explore that in detail.

The so-called “counterculture of the 1960s” bred a number of radical organizations that over time morphed, infiltrated and/or became aligned with the Democrat Party. The Cuban Revolution and subsequent Communist insurgencies and revolts throughout Latin America made heroes of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara to radical leftists in the United States, both of whom are glorified by the American Left to this very day. Che beanies and shirts are still the rage on college campuses and are worn by kids who have no clue about his bloody past. A whole host of trendy revolutionary-style groups sprang up in the US in the ‘60s that were focused on the civil rights movement, “revolutionary change,” and, later, anti-Vietnam War protests. You may remember some of the names:

    • Students for a Democratic Society (SDS)
    • The Weather Underground (Weathermen: Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, etc.)
    • Black Panther Party (Huey Newton, Bobby Seale, Eldridge Cleaver, etc.)
    • Black Liberation Army (1970s)
    • Yippies (Abbie Hoffman)
    • American Indian Movement (Dennis Banks, Russell Means, etc.)
    • And a number of smaller entities tied to Mao, Marx, Trotsky, and Lenin, as well as radical leftist political parties: Communist Party USA, Industrial Workers of the World, Workers World Party, Socialist Workers Party, etc.

HOW ‘WOKENESS’ IS A PRODUCT OF MARXISM

Monday, August 3rd, 2020

 

If you click on the link you will be able to hear an in-depth analysis in a video  of how Wokeness is affecting our country.  Nancy

How ‘Wokeness’ Is a Product of Marxism

Jarrett Stepman @JarrettStepman / Jarrett Stepman is a contributor to The Daily Signal and co-host of The Right Side of History podcast. Send an email to Jarrett. He is also the author of the new book, “The War on History: The Conspiracy to Rewrite America’s Past.”

Wokeness” has become the nomenclature for the ideology or mentality of radical leftist activists on college campuses, at protests, and on social media.

But wokeness has not been limited to just a handful of activists. It’s becoming a dominant mindset in the American workplace, in both the public and private sectors, as a method to promote “anti-racism.”

A Heritage Foundation panel on July 24 addressed first what wokeness actually is, but also how it has crept into corporate boardrooms and why it’s such a problem.

Angela Sailor, vice president of The Feulner Institute at The Heritage Foundation, said that “pervasive trends under the guise of equality makes diversity training in government, and corporate America, and schools, destructive, divisive, and harmful.”

James Lindsay, the co-author of a forthcoming book, “Cynical Theories: How Activist Scholarship Made Everything about Race, Gender, and Identity—and Why This Harms Everybody,” says wokeness is actually a combination of many different ideas.

“Wokeness is a fusion of the critical theory school of neo-Marxism, which is a form of identity politics, and radical activism that has a very particular worldview that separates the world into liberationists versus oppressors or oppressed versus oppressors,” said Lindsay, whose book is set for release Aug. 25.

It marries that, Lindsay said, with postmodern theory, which holds that “all applications of truth are actually applications of politics by other means.”

In other words, the truth is malleable, based on power and who drives the narrative of what truth really is. In effect, the truth is replaced by my truth.

Marxism is a mostly economic theory, with origins in the 19th century. Those ideas, he said, led to some of the worst atrocities in world history.

Traditional Marxist ideas were adopted but changed in the 1920s by Italian communist Antonio Gramsci and others, and became the project of the Frankfurt school of critical theory. That new theory focused more on shaping culture, Lindsay said, marrying traditional Marxism with Freudian psychology and other social theories to change the way people think.

That new theory focused more on shaping culture, Lindsay said, marrying traditional Marxism with Freudian psychology and other social theories to change the way people think.

The goal of postmodernists who were part of that movement was to “deconstruct the very meanings of things,” said Lindsay.

Those ideas reached a new phase with the writings of Herbert Marcuse, a Columbia University professor in the 1960s and 1970s who advocated radical activism based on identity politics.

But this radicalism burned out, Lindsay said, because its violence ultimately made it unpopular.

The radicals then left the streets and embedded themselves in our schools and universities.

“It has all of the conflict theory—separate the world into oppressor-versus-oppressed classes—with zero-sum conflict, no ability to agree or understand one another across those, and then takes on the postmodern understanding of truth being just politics by other means, which removes all of the brakes standing up against it,” Lindsay said.

Seeing the world through that lens is what constitutes wokeness.

Mike Gonzalez, a senior fellow at The Heritage Foundation and author of the new book “The Plot to Change America: How Identity Politics Is Dividing the Land of the Free,” explained how these ideas entered the workplace under the guise of combating racism and why they are so toxic.

“Anti-racism training is a con,” Gonzalez said. “These consultants get paid exorbitant amounts of money. Often these fees come from taxpayer funds.”

Though many of the advocates of wokeness are con artists, we have to take them seriously, Gonzalez said, because there is a strong ideological component to it.

“The true name of anti-racism training is consciousness-raising struggle sessions,” he said.

It’s used to demolish the “hegemonic narrative,” which in simpler terms, Gonzalez said, is simply “the American story, the American dream, the promise of liberty and prosperity that have attracted about 100 million immigrants from all over the world from 1850 to the present.”

Christopher Rufo, the director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty at the Seattle-based Discovery Institute and contributing editor at City Journal, has delved into how “anti-racist training,” together with the Black Lives Matter movement, has invaded the boardroom and government.

“This is now becoming the default ideology of the bureaucracy, and people are making, in some cases, millions of dollars offering essentially political indoctrination on the public dime to public employees,” Rufo said.

All levels of government, as well as nonprofits and corporations, now have human resources departments that have adopted critical race theory as their dominant functioning ideology, he said, adding that it’s become a particularly big problem at the federal level.

“You have an apparatus of federal power that has grown extraordinarily since the days of Woodrow Wilson through [Franklin Roosevelt] through [Lyndon Johnson] in this kind of permanently expanding power that until recently, at least theoretically, operated under the ostensible ideology of the social sciences, of neutrality, but it’s really been abandoned,” Rufo said.

The permanent bureaucracy, no matter who the president is, has adopted critical race theory as its ideology of choice.

That’s leading to a “change in regime” that has never been voted on or approved by the American people, Rufo said. The result is that the machinery of the bureaucracy will be weaponized against the American people.

Rufo spoke of potential ways to stop this form of regime change. He said that it’s important to create institutional infrastructure to protect people from being targeted and “canceled.”

Gonzalez said that it is essential to inform other Americans of the transformation taking place and warn them of the radical changes to come if these ideas are not stopped.

“The more we write about this, the more we expose people to what has taken place, to why, who did it, how they did it, and what is their real goal here, we can start to demolish this idea that ‘no, this is nice because people need … justice,’” Gonzalez said, adding: “Let’s really be honest, and without rancor in our heart, just expose them. Sunshine can be a great disinfectant. Let’s really allow in the light and expose this for what it is.”

The goal of postmodernists who were part of that movement was to “deconstruct the very meanings of things,” said Lindsay.
