Years ago I read a little book called A Communese-English Dictionary. I don't remember who the author was, but it was an informative little book that explained the Aesopian language used by Communists and defined what they really meant. For instance, when they told us they wanted "peace" they didn't mean the same thing by the word peace that we mean. To us it means that everyone tries to get along, live and let live, etc. To the Communists the word "peace" meant absence of resistance to Communism. If the Communist told you he desired "peaceful co-existence" with you it really meant that he was willing to live with you as long as he dominated the situation and called the shots.
Today they inform us that communism is dead, that it has no effect on anyone anymore, that you just don't have to be concerned about it - it's a relic of a bygone era. This is not quite the truth. You may not have legions of Soviet soldiers marching down the main streets of your cities, but you have their faithful minions hustling around on most of the college campuses. They are not lurking in the bushes wearing trenchcoats with the collars pulled up either. They are sitting in the offices of many of the professors and teaching classes to many of our young people who would be much better off somewhere else.
Military communism is not currently on the move in this country, but cultural communism is. Cultural Marxists have learned that they catch and influence many more young people with professors than they do with soldiers, and so their apparatchiks are strategically stationed on college campuses where they can practice their class struggle techniques with the utmost effectiveness.
Most insiders, not wanting to give the game away don't refer to it as cultural Marxism. They couch it in more politically correct terms - multiculturalism, diversity, tolerance, etc.
William Lind, in an Accuracy In Academia speech delivered back in 2000 stated that: "Political correctness is cultural Marxism. It is a Marxism translated from economic into cultural terms ... The totalitarian nature of Political Correctness is revealed nowhere more clearly than on college campuses, many of which at this point are small ivy covered North Koreas, ... " Groups involved in this cultural totalitarianism are most often radical feminists, homosexual rights advocates, Hispanic or radical black groups - those that Mr. Lind refers to as the "sainted victims." For them, everything in all of life revolves around their status as "victims" of a racist, homophobic society. No matter what question or subject comes up they will eventually work it around to how they have been "oppressed" by the rest of us and how we need to repent of our oppression (hopefully with our wallets in our outstretched hands). They have the right to express their views. You will find that this right does not extend to you if you oppose their views. It's a one way street. "Tolerance" means accepting what they promote while condemning your response if you disagree. "Multiculturalism" means promoting and extolling all races except the white race, and most especially white males.
If you stop and think about it, this is nothing more than the classic Marxist class struggle technique - men against women, young against old, black against white - you name it - and they all have one solution for the problem, Western Civilization has got to go.
Clarence B. Carson has told us in his book Basic Communism that "While Lenin and his cohorts did not take over the whole job of rearing children from parents and relatives, they did do their best to wrest the training of them from parental, customary, traditional, and religious influences." Carson noted that Karl Marx had indeed called for "Free Education for all children in public schools" in "The Communist Manifesto." And he tells us that "Schooling was the chosen instrument of the Communists for indoctrination in their ideology and outlook. Schooling has tended to become, under government auspices, an instrument for breaking the hold of families, communities, and churches over the minds of children in many countries in the 20th century ... The first step by Lenin to break this hold was to separate schooling from religion." Does it sound familiar?
Stop and ask yourself - how much different is this than what goes on in this country today? The parallels are there for those willing to see.
William Lind reminds us of the comments of Marxist theorist Georg Lukacs, who said, back in 1919 "Who will save us from Western Civilization?" Remember just a few years ago on college campuses you heard students chanting "Hey hey, ho ho, Western Civ has got to go." Where do you think they got that - from the tooth fairy?
To reiterate, Political Correctness is nothing more than cultural Marxism. It is Marxism dressed up with a different face so you and your children will not recognize it. If our young people are not taught what it really is and how to resist it before they get to college they might well fall prey to it.
