"Political Correctness is cultural Marxism. It is Marxism translated from economic into cultural terms. "

Both are totalitarian ideologies. 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, where the student or faculty member who dares to cross any of the lines set up by the gender feminist or the homosexual-rights activists, or the local black or Hispanic group, or any of the other sainted “victims” groups that PC revolves around, quickly find themselves in judicial trouble. Within the small legal system of the college, they face formal charges – some star-chamber proceeding – and punishment. That is a little look into the future that Political Correctness intends for the nation as a whole. -- The Origins of Political Correctness :: Accuracy In Academia

Your Say

From Bill Lind's 2000 article:

"How does all of this stuff flood in here? How does it flood into our universities, and indeed into our lives today? The members of the Frankfurt School are Marxist, they are also, to a man, Jewish."

So that's it, is it, Gerard?

If it's the truth, it's the truth---and it's demonstrably true. Read your history. But it's incorrect to attribute anti-semitic motives to your host. The only one globalizing here is you.

Thanks, ahem. I made no comments about the host.

It would be more productive were we to be able to point out the wildly out of proportion contributions of Jews to science, literature, and the arts, yet then not act as if that proportion does not exist in the arts of treason and subversion. There is a substantial 20th century history of the leading edge of the miners and sappers of liberty employing the anti-Semitic slur--among others--to cow discussion and establish thought uniformity. It is ironic that the old methods of silencing others have finally been so well learned by the enemies of the Jews that many Jews seek common cause with them in a cowardly and futile form of self-defense. Reap and sow.

What James Wilson said.

The truth is the truth and it must be faced, no matter how distasteful it may be.

Hmmm. I admit I saw the "all Jewish" factoid and had to digest it for a second.

Call it a sign of the times I grew up in.

Eventually, though, I thought "... and there was one place far enough away from Germany after 1936 to be sort of safe, if you were a Jew..." and got on with absorbing the rest of this excellent presentation.

It's hard to be surprised when you pay attention to history. At least it's hard to be honestly surprised.

"Political Correctness is cultural Marxism."

No surprise there, since Lenin probably coined the term -- he held that children below the age of six could be executed *without* a trial if their parents "were not politically correct."

Stalin, however, insisted upon a trial for appearances' sake before they were executed...

The point of bringing up their Jewishness was to explain their mass exodus from Germany, not to fan the flames of anti-semitism.
