Here are two articles that I have been meaning to get to for some time. Both of these address the long war that cultural Marxism has been waging against Western Civilization in general and America in particular for many decades. As we look around us in the present day we can see clearly the damage perpetrated throughout the culture in areas as diverse as education, entertainment, music, film, books, news media, television, and of course in law and politics by this evil ideology.
As both articles make clear, the push to undermine our society has been a long-term project going back generations. The communist left understood long ago that to bring down such a successful and strong civilization as the West would be the work of many years and would require weakening and attacking the culture from the inside on a variety of fronts. Some have called it “The Long March” through the institutions, for the left chose to infiltrate and undermine the various social and legal organizations that make up the cultural and institutional foundations of our society in order to bring it down and thus to fundamentally change it into something that it was not intended to be.
Although the process has been a long and slow one, many people who would otherwise not take much of an interest in political and cultural issues have awakened to the fact that a certain sub-set of the population has been working very hard to take the country away from the rest of us. That this is the case has now become so blatantly obvious that it is all but impossible to ignore. And not just in the US but all around the West we see a rising tide of discontent from the regular people; the “silent majority” as it were. The Brexit vote for example looks to be but the first of several movements in Europe to re-establish national borders and cultures that the left must work to destroy if it is to achieve its globalist utopian dream.
The first article that I want to share with you is this one from Mallory Millett at FrontPage Magazine. It tells us about her Feminist sister, an author/activist who helped to create The National Organization for Women, one of several communist front groups that gained popularity and power starting in the radical 1960s. Feminism is, of course, only one of the tools that the left has used to try to overturn the established order. But is has been a powerful one that has succeeded in doing much damage to the traditional family structure and to the relationships between men and women. This article makes it clear that it was entirely intentional.
It was 1969. Kate invited me to join her for a gathering at the home of her friend, Lila Karp. They called the assemblage a “consciousness-raising-group,” a typical communist exercise, something practiced in Maoist China. We gathered at a large table as the chairperson opened the meeting with a back-and-forth recitation, like a Litany, a type of prayer done in Catholic Church. But now it was Marxism, the Church of the Left, mimicking religious practice:
“Why are we here today?” she asked.
“To make revolution,” they answered.
“What kind of revolution?” she replied.
“The Cultural Revolution,” they chanted.
“And how do we make Cultural Revolution?” she demanded.
“By destroying the American family!” they answered.
“How do we destroy the family?” she came back.
“By destroying the American Patriarch,” they cried exuberantly.
“And how do we destroy the American Patriarch?” she replied.
“By taking away his power!”
“How do we do that?”
“By destroying monogamy!” they shouted.
“How can we destroy monogamy?”
Their answer left me dumbstruck, breathless, disbelieving my ears. Was I on planet earth? Who were these people?
The second article is by L. Jagi Lamplighter and tells us about a book by Bella Dodd, “The School of Darkness” which is a memoir of her time spent working with the communist movement and of her eventual redemption and her return to sanity and a normal understanding of life and faith. Both of these are worth your time if you want to know how deep the rabbit hole goes. And it goes deep indeed. But if we are to save our countries and our civilization from the most evil and vile amongst us, we have to understand what has been done and why it was not an accident.
Bella Dodd was an Italian-born American (she was an American accidentally born in Italy, who grew up there until she was about six,) who went on to become a teacher. Influenced by the young free thinking teacher at her college (who later committed suicide, so empty was her life), Bella became interested in labor rights and was targeted by the Communists.
To my utter astonishment, at that time, the Communists were a huge, well-organized group with fingers in every single pie.
Because they had many of their members stay secret, not reveal that they were actually Communists, they could be members of every group. They formed Fragments, as I think they called them, in every political party, every labor union. Because if this they knew what all the different parties and groups were up to, and could organized coordinated attacks to get their policies across.
In the various teachers unions, their main goal was getting schools to 1) accept federal aid and 2) emphasize separation of church and state.
They had as an avowed goal: designing public schools so as to break up the family and make the children idea future Communists.
