Understanding the Cultural Marxist Agenda Against America
You can't understand what is wrong with our society and culture today, that which bleeds over into everyone's life whether we like it or not, unless we first understand the agenda of cultural Marxism which has been thrust upon us by the Left and how it dangerously influences society as a whole. -W.E.
"There are a couple of players you are going to need to know if you are going to understand cultural Marxism. One is a guy by the name of Antonio Gramsci. Gramsci was an Italian Marxist. Another one is not an individual but a group of individuals known as the Frankfurt school.
Two ideas. One, Gramsci's idea of cultural hegemony. Listen to the way one sociologist puts it:
'Cultural hegemony refers to domination or rule maintained through ideological or cultural means. It is usually achieved through social institutions which allow those in power to strongly influence the values, norms, ideas, expectations, worldview and behavior of the rest of society. Cultural hegemony.'"
"Have you ever wondered why women, who make up more than 50% of the population are considered a minority? You ever wondered why? Because women are not seen as part of the cultural hegemony. The cultural hegemony is patriarchal. The cultural hegemony for example in our society is white, male, heterosexual, cisgendered, able-bodied, native born Americans. You know who you are (laughter). And everybody whose not that is a minority. And everybody whose not that is a victim of the cultural hegemony established by those individuals. Which means everybody whose not that, is at war with that. And everybody who is that, is privileged."
"So the revolution that comes, doesn't need to be an armed revolution or a revolution of force, it needs to be a hegemonic revolution. In other words, we [Marxists] need to change the cultural hegemony. And how do you overturn a cultural hegemony? A couple of things. For Gramsci, control the robes of society. What are the robes of society? You know, the people who wear robes; judges, professors, pastors, politicians. Leverage those positions in order to educate and mobilize the masses against the hegemonic power. Use the educational system, the political system, the judicial system in order to overturn the cultural hegemony. Does that sound at all familiar? This is how you gain power. By the way, in the meantime how do you gain political power? You gain political power by promising various groups of people that you will advocate for them. That's why you can have so many white, male, heterosexual, cisgendered, able-bodied, native born American politicians who present themselves as representatives for people who are not any of those things. That's how cultural Marxism works."
"So, what do these guys give us [Frankfurt school]? A number of things. Namely, critical theory. Have you heard the idea of critical race theory? It's a grandchild of the Frankfurt school. Political correctness. Multiculturalism. Any of these things sound familiar?
So as a result of these ideologies we have all been taught over time through our media, through our educational systems to view ourselves not as part of a whole but as part of sub-groups. Sub-groups who in some way, shape fashion or form are being oppressed by the hegemonic power that rules and governs our culture."
