Attacking the Killer Virgins! David Duke is only the latest pamphleteer to blame those awful Europeans for indoctrinating virginal Americans with Political Correctness. Duke is merely following the trail blazed earlier by Pat Buchanan in his best-selling book, THE DEATH OF WEST.
The alleged culprit is the Frankfurt School which was exiled from Germany to the USA during the time of Hitler. The Frankfurt School is described as a particularly nasty piece of work engaged in a malevolent Judeo-Bolshevik scheme to undermine virginal American Culture and turn it into its opposite.
In this reading, the Frankfurt School originated around 1930 to come to theoretical grips with the failure of Communist Revolutions in the West to come to the aid of the beleaguered Bolshevik Revolution. Supposedly they concluded that workers in the West had been brainwashed and would need to be re-educated. The Class War was to change from the political to the cultural front.
But whatever the wet dreams of the Frankfurt School, they were precisely that, wet dreams. Rather than being a new diabolical scheme on the part of the Communists, the denizens of the Frankfurt School were divorced from the official Communist movement. Many had been expelled from their respective Communist parties.
The prevailing Stalinist orthodoxy of the actual, existing Communist movement had no truck with ‘sexual revolution’ which they considered counter-revolutionary. Communists of this time regarded homosexuality as a bourgeois decadent lifestyle. Stalinist morality was akin to the pre-Vatican II Roman Catholic Church. Sexual mores under Stalin were so strict that VD practically disappeared in the Soviet Union.
If the Regime of Political Correctness was not a Kremlin plot, where did it originate? Who corrupted virginal American Culture, turning it into its opposite? BORN IN THE USA!
That’s right! Born & bred in the USofA! As American paleoconservative historian Paul Gottfried details in his marvelous little book, THE STRANGE DEATH OF MARXISM, it mostly derives mostly from American social engineering and pluralist ideology which was then IMPOSED on Europe with the Yankee occupation following the Second World War. While called ‘cultural Marxism’, it has little or nothing to do with Marxism as an economic-historical theory.
While the erudite Professor Gottfried, who is Jewish, would be loathe to admit it, this gibes with what Francis Parker Yockey wrote in his 1949 PROCLAMATION OF LONDON establishing the European Liberation Front. Yockey angrily railed against the ethical syphilis of Hollywood and the spiritual leprosy of New York. The anti-Communist Francis Parker Yockey saw this as a greater threat to European Civilization than the Kremlin. Later, A.K. Chesterton would agree.
Back to Professor Gottfried: Contrary to the impression that the United States has taken anti-bourgeois attitudes from the Europeans, he argues exactly the opposite. To wit: Since the end of World War II, Europe has lived in the shadow of an American Empire that has affected the Old World, including its self-described anti-Americans.
This strange beast called ‘cultural Marxism’ differs from both Marxism in theory and Communism in practice. In fact, it’s not really interested in socialism at all. Rather, their project is social engineering from above. They are not enemies of capitalism per se. They want to integrate Western nation states into global organizations. They are for propping up what I term the ‘lumpen-bourgeoisie’ with state subsidies. The EU is a major instrument for this social experiment.
The decadent bourgeois adolescents who began this trend in Europe after 1968 focused on combating discrimination against women and immigrants and the marginalization of gays instead of the nationalization of the productive forces. Harping against racism, sexism, homophobia and the like, the REAL intent was to turn nation-states into branches of a global managerial regime, This gibes with the intent of the Global Financial Elite.
Likewise, the Greens moved into this orbit. They went from promoting environmentalism to promoting the filling up of Western countries with the Third World poor.
And all of this is akin to the Neo-Conservative project in the USA which derives from a mutant strain of Trotskyism.
Culture Distortion on a mass scale. They goes beyond the pygmies of the Frankfurt School.
