After reading the latest round of idiocy coming out of the University of Tennessee, I thought it might be useful to explain where Political Correctness came from. The short and sweet answer is Marxism. You might be hearing bongs tipping over and some elderly hippy shouting “No Way Dude!” Yes, Way Dude.
You see, in the 1930’s some rich German kid became enamored of Marxism, and spent his daddy’s money endowing The Institute for Social Research based out of the Frankfurt University. Marxism had been around for awhile and despite their best efforts, the working class weren’t buying it. So, this loser called Max Horkheimer decided to dress up this pig of an idea, and dream up Political Correctness, which is part of the Critical Theory. Add a little Freud to Marx and you got yourself a pig with lipstick and daddy issues. Oh, and they thought it advantageous not to promote the idea of Marxism being associated with this pretty pig.
Critical Theory includes branches of radical feminism, women’s studies departments, gay studies departments and black studies departments. Speech control and rewriting history. Does any of this sound familiar?
The Soviet Union bought into this lock, stock and barrel. Joseph Stalin is famous for saying “A single death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic.” For those of you too young to know what I am talking about, Old Joe killed 34 to 49 million of his people. Quite a statistic. This was what Marxism was about. Controlling people, their speech, their wealth, their very thoughts.
Yes, you say, that’s all very nice, but how did it get here? Well, in the 1930’s the members of the Frankfurt School were Marxist, and all of them were apparently Jewish. In 1933, the Nazis came to power and promptly kicked them all out of Germany. Nazis did not want competition from Marxists. So, them fun loving Jews came to New York, set up shop with the help of Columbia University. Now that these guys were here in America, they started transitioning all their German ideas, and applying their Critical Theory to their new home. Teachers and Professors tend to be hive minded and generally feel they are being oppressed. All this sounded great coming from their new friends. In spite of Joe McCarthy going on his commie witch hunts (information from the archives of the Soviet Union say he was justified), this crap kept circulating around.
Then the 60’s arrived and with it, the Viet Nam war. The students rebelled, not wanting to get drafted, so they searched around for an idea that would justify their long haired ways. Herbert Marcuse saw this as idea whose time has come. He pushed his book, Eros and Civilization, which downplayed Marxism and next thing you know, them long hair punks are yelling “Do your own thing,” “If it feels good, do it,” and the best one “Make love not war.” Add a little Mary Jane to the mix and you have a movement. The song Alice’s Restaurant is a good summation.
So to wrap it up, Commie Jews got kicked out of Germany, and Columbia University gave them a home. In gratitude, they started trying to subvert the US of A with what got them kicked out of their old home. Fast forward to the 60’s, some loser with a book takes advantage of weak minded and smelly hippies. He pushes some contrived, warmed over crap, and everybody laps it up. I haven’t even mentioned the help they got from our old buddies, the Soviet Union, but you get the drift. If you are unclear on how this whole thing will play out, read 1984 by Orwell. He seems to have written the script that our political class is hell bent to run with. They want to control you, your speech, your thoughts, your wealth, everything. Look at the Soviet Union for examples on how that worked out for them.

If for some strange reason, you claim you don’t believe any of this, well my friend, you’ve been lied to so long and accepted it, you no longer believe the truth.
