Multiculturalism in America
Beginning in the 1920s, a group of Marxist Atheists now known as the Frankfurt School began plotting the corruption and overthrow of capitalist countries by systematically undermining their cultures, a strategy known as Cultural Marxism. The idea is to use art, music, education, and all forms we use to communicate concepts and memes such as various media. The aim is to condition people to accept the essential elements of Socialism/Communism without identifying them as such.
After a few generations of this conditioning, Marxism becomes the new reality without violent revolution and without even an awareness that a new cultural paradigm has been quietly installed. The success of this strategy is apparent as we witness creeping levels of Socialism increasingly accepted in Western nations by people conditioned not to know the dangers.
Cultural Marxism came into vogue among American student radicals in the 1960s, under the influence of Herbert Marcuse. This relatively small number of Marxist revolutionaries started the New Left, and spawned the cherished 'progressive' programs that permeate public education from kindergarten to graduate school in the United States. One of these programs is Multiculturalism.
Traditional American Culture
"The bosom of America is open to the oppressed and persecuted of all nations but they should not come as groups as to retain the language, habits, and principles which they bring with them. Rather they should settle as individuals ready for intermixture with our people and so become assimilated to our customs, measures, and laws: in a word, soon become one people." George Washington
The Judeo-Christian nation of America has been a beacon of light to the world's oppressed for centuries. To live in America, millions of people braved the Atlantic Ocean; made it across the Caribbean Sea on a makeshift raft; or stowed away in the cargo hold of an Asian ship that came via the Pacific Ocean.
America was the Promised Land; the most blessed nation on earth; the one nation that welcomed them and offered them freedom and opportunity. They wanted to be Americans.
What defined an American before multiculturalism? An American was a sovereign individual; with liberty but also the responsibility that comes with that liberty; unlimited opportunity to be whoever you could be; to succeed or fail on your own merits; to be independent and self-reliant; to be equal under the law; to adhere to the Protestant Work Ethic—all of these being core Christian values. Americans did not question that their belief in God and His Bible were the foundation of a prosperous life in a great society that has been uniquely blessed by God.
Public school teachers today relentlessly inject doubt about all of this into the minds of American children. There is a strategy to condemn America as a racist, oppressive nation in order to fundamentally transform it by first dividing it and by making it appear not worth defending.
"You cannot become thorough Americans if you think of yourselves in groups. America does not consist of groups. A man who thinks of himself as belonging to a particular national group in America has not yet become an American." Woodrow Wilson
What Is Multiculturalism?
Judge Robert Bork describes multiculturalism: "A philosophy of antagonism to America and the West;" as well as "An attack on America, the European-American culture, and the white race, with a special emphasis on white males."
Judge Bork goes on to add this: "A curriculum designed to foster understanding of other cultures would study those cultures. Multiculturalism does not. Courses are not offered on the cultures of China or India or Brazil or Nigeria, nor does the curriculum require the study of languages without which foreign cultures cannot be fully understood.
"Instead the focus is on cultures that, allegedly, have been subjected to oppression by American and Western Civilization—homosexuals, American Indians, blacks, Hispanics, women, and so on. The message is not that all cultures are to be respected, but that the European culture, which created the dominance of white males, is uniquely evil. Multiculturalism follows the agenda of modern liberalism, and it comes straight from the Sixties counterculture. But now, in American education, it is the dominant culture."
The Woodstock Generation
The Woodstock Generation, of which I am a part, wanted to destroy all authority, tradition, and custom in America. This includes wherever these hated things may be found in our religion, government, media, public schools, and universities.
The radical Atheist Marxist revolutionaries of my generation fomented Cultural Revolution that they framed as sexual liberation, gay liberation, and the liberation of women from the "shackles" of a patriarchal society. The result has been rampant promiscuity, adultery, divorce, abortion, the destruction of the family, gender confusion, and the AIDS epidemic.
Part of why I am writing this is that I am deeply sorry for my generation's role in the deconstruction of all America held dear and near. "Do your own thing" and "Love the one you're with" and "If it feels good do it" are flawed slogans for human society. We were wrong. Profoundly wrong.
Are All Cultures Equal?
Multiculturalism teaches that all cultures on Earth are of equal value. We can see this played out in the fondness that social liberals have for third world foods. This bemuses third world peoples who fully understand that they only eat what they eat because they do not have what we eat.
Even cultures that hate women—where women are beaten or killed for being raped—are glorified by multiculturalists. No matter how ignorant a culture—including those whose people drink from the same water they just pissed in and eat from the same trough they just defecated in—it is glorified by multiculturalists.
But Western culture—that culture which has produced the greatest benefits to mankind by way of progress in knowledge, agriculture, medicine, technology, freedom, self-governance, and standard of living—is vilified.
Since all cultures are equal this means that Wiccans and Satanists are given equal respect to Christians. If your county board of supervisors opens its meetings with prayer, one social liberal judge ruled, some of those invocations must be by a witch. Satanists must be accorded the same "respect" in the name of "inclusiveness" and "diversity."
Now there is no way to declare that all cultures are equal without first giving up any notion that there is right and wrong in the world. This is where Moral Relativism comes in to tell us that each person in the world has his own truth and if they merely believe it, it is true for them.
I remember this philosophy from living in a Hippie commune. The sage of the commune told us all (one drug-hazed morning) that whatever each person believes to be true IS true for them as an individual. In other words, if I believe in heaven and hell then there is a heaven and hell—but only for me. If I believe that death is the end of me, then for me it is. If I believe that if I blow up a bus full of women and children I will go to heaven with 70 virgins awaiting me—then they will be waiting.
This is a very attractive belief system. But extrapolated out into the real world: If I believe my homemade airplane will fly and you don't—we are both right!
Another result of multiculturalism is identity politics, where people self-identify not as Americans but as a part of an ethnic group. Each group has its own laundry list of grievances and demands. What the demands have in common is they generally are centered on taking what the white men have—not by earning it either. Thus Americans come to be classified by race and ethnicity by the government, as a prelude to handing out goodies.
The preserving of diverse alien identities divides and fragments America. It leads to Balkanization by magnifying differences and stirring antagonisms. Our national identity is rejected as too Eurocentric. Public education once strengthened the bonds of Americans, but no more.
Leonard Jeffries, professor and chair of the Black Studies department at City College of New York, is a good example of a multiculturalist. He once said: "The Washington Monument is an African monument of resurrection that was refashioned for George Washington, the slave-master bastard founding father."
In an interview in Rutherford Magazine May 1995 Jeffries was asked what kind of world he would want to leave to his children. His answer? "A world in which there aren’t any white people".
Jeffries has said that the 1986 Challenger Space Shuttle disaster was "the best thing to happen to America in a long time," as it would "stop white people from spreading their filth through the universe."
The Danger of Multiculturalism
"A multicultural society is a contradiction in terms and cannot survive indefinitely." John O'Sullivan
Multiculturalism creates tribalism. The holy grail of it is "diversity" not unity. Tribalism creates conflict. There is a very funny scene in the film Crocodile Dundee where the main character, an Australian man for whom the film is titled, travels to New York City for the first time. He encounters a black limousine driver and cheerfully asks, "What tribe you from, mate?" The driver responds, "Tribe!? I ain't from no tribe!"
Thank goodness multiculturalists were not around during the waves of immigration from Europe of 1880-1930. Those people came to America to become Americans. The only way to forge a national identity was to diminish ethnic identities. Today, ethnicity is a cult among minorities, who are encouraged to avoid the melting pot and instead create a mosaic. This leads to confusion and disunity.
What Is Multiculturalism All About?
"When a Stanford University professor describes Milton as an ass and a sexist pig, and when Shakespeare is only on the syllabus at Duke University, in the words of another professor, to illuminate the way seventeenth-century society mistreated women, the working class, and minorities: We should be warned. A society only needs one generation to abandon the task of learning and transmitting its culture, for that culture to become an alien, lifeless, irrelevance. A powerful left-wing clerisy is bent on destroying what every past generation would have understood to be the central purpose of education." Margaret Thatcher
Multiculturalism is about diminishing any patriotic love of country in the minds of children by brainwashing them with a subtle message of Atheism and Marxism. It is about teaching the theory of evolution as if it were fact. Children are led to believe that they are nothing but animals; that their ancestors were apes.
The purveyors of this evil ideology are focused on destroying Western Civilization by liberating America from any notion of a God who created human beings in His own image and expects something from us in the way of morality. Multiculturalists rewrite history to make America the bad guy in the world. They are anti-American and anti-Christ to the core.
The result of multiculturalism is a generation of people who have no guardrails; no standards of right and wrong. This leads to moral anarchy. All they have to guide them are their feelings. Such people are easily manipulated by the media.
Multiculturalism Is Propaganda
Marketing is the application of the knowledge of human psychology to the task of persuasion. This is not to persuade the intellect of people; it is to persuade them emotionally. Multiculturalists aim to persuade us that there is no such thing as sin—unless you are "judgmental." That's a great sin to them.
Since all cultures, belief systems, and worldviews, are equal, surely pedophiles—excuse me, those who enjoy "intergenerational sex"—should soon join those who enjoy homosexual behaviors as a protected class. According to pedophiles, we must soon shed our taboos and grant full sexual rights to children and those who "love" them.
We must be "tolerant" of anything and everything—except Christianity and belief in Objective Truth. Objective Truth means that the truth exists outside of us and never changes regardless of our opinions about it. It cannot be whatever we want it to be. We must seek it to find it. This search for truth has always been one of the chief pursuits of man, and the most highly regarded.
The Promotion of Ghetto Culture
Since the only culture to be despised is the culture of success, this has greatly contributed to the phenomenon of black kids who read and study being harassed and beaten up by other blacks for "acting white."
Multiculturalism teaches children who are not white males to hate white males. And it teaches white children to feel guilty and ashamed of their identity. Imagine that: everybody should feel proud of their race or ethnicity except the descendents of those who created almost everything we see and experience outside of wilderness or jungle.
One of the best examples of the danger and idiocy of multiculturalism is the promotion of ghetto culture. One way we can see the pernicious effects of this is the whigger phenomenon. Here we witness white boys from nice families in the suburbs walking around with their drawers hanging down below their butts, underwear showing, and baseball caps on sideways, making funny gangland hand gestures, talking in black slang: "Wazzup, dog?" "What's it be like?" "I'm gonna bust a cap off in your ass!" "Where's my hos, bitch?"
Meanwhile, white girls are encouraged to date black boys to prove their lack of racism. This began back in the early days of the feminist movement, which allied itself with the black power movement. Both movements hated a common enemy—the white man. The black men in their racial movement would tell the white feminists that if they wouldn't have sex with them they were racists. President Obama's mother could be a poster person for this concept—she never dated a white man since she was a feminist, an atheist, and a marxist.
My daughter told me that her young 7th grade Social Studies teacher—in her nearly all-white public school—told the class that it was a good idea for white girls to date black boys from the slums across the river to "experience diversity," and that if your parents tell you otherwise that is just because they are old-fashioned bigots. I have never heard of white boys being given a similar admonition, to date black girls from the Hood. This has been quite effective. Who hasn't noticed an explosion of single, young, white women with babies that by their features obviously have black fathers?
Why Teach Multiculturalism?
The excuse given by the purveyors of multiculturalism for promoting out and out lies to children is this: minorities have produced less benefit for humankind only because of a lack of self-esteem. The lies of multiculturalism—that all cultures are equal (as if putting a bone through one's nose is equal to putting a man on the moon)—are necessary to build the self-esteem of minorities. This will make for a better world by enabling the people oppressed by the white man to achieve great things.
But does it actually work? If all cultures are equal and all people have contributed equally to the civilization we live in BUT the white guys have more power and wealth does this make minorities feel good? Or does it put chips on their shoulders the size of boulders because it implies that the white man stole what he has earned by exploiting and oppressing his equals (how is that possible?).
Maybe, just maybe, we shouldn't teach little boys with IQs around 85 that if it were not for oppression by white men they would be as rich as Bill Gates. Firstly, because it is not true.
Multiculturalism in Europe
British Prime Minister David Cameron made this courageous statement recently: "Under the doctrine of state multiculturalism we have encouraged different cultures to live separate lives, apart from each other. We've even tolerated these segregated communities behaving in ways that run completely counter to our values."
Mr. Cameron called for a "muscular liberalism" as opposed to a "passively tolerant society that stands neutral between different values." He called for Britain to declare "to its citizens, this is what defines us as a society: To belong here is to believe in these things."
German Chancellor Angela Markel also spoke out saying that multiculturalism has resulted in the "permanent alienation of the immigrants" who still identify with their home country's religion and culture.
She said that Germany does not know how to assimilate Muslims or other foreign peoples. Who does?
Markel stated that immigrants should be required to learn the German language and accept what she called "German cultural norms." In her own words: "This multicultural approach has failed. Utterly failed."
Multiculturalism in America
Any movement to stop teaching multiculturalism in the United States will have to face the opprobrium of the National Education Association (teachers union). It devises the civics courses for American schools and staffs those schools with teachers who have been brainwashed in education colleges that were founded specifically to imbue Progressive educational philosophy.
The John Dewey Project on Progressive Education at the University of Vermont explains that the larger goal of John Dewey was to destroy the entire American culture by undermining its belief in individualism, capitalism, and its traditional values, in particular the Christian Faith. Dewey, the "father of modern education" was an Atheist and a Communist.
Pat Buchanan commented on Multiculturalism: "The United States has undergone a cultural, moral, and religious revolution. We are two countries now. We are two countries morally, culturally, socially, and theologically. Cultural wars do not lend themselves to peaceful co-existence. One side prevails, or the other prevails. The truth is that, while we won the Cold War with political and economic Communism, we lost the war with cultural Marxism, which now is dominant. Those of us who are traditionalists, we are now the counterculture."
Multiculturalists reject the Founding Fathers and their ideas, which made America the greatest nation in the history of the earth. Man can only be self-governing if his personal behavior is governed by God. If the Multiculturalists have their way, America will be destroyed and centuries from now people will look back at this wonderful experiment and wonder how we could let it be taken away from us by a bunch of nuts who hated the truth.
"All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing." Edmund Burke
The Modern World
The main thing that is forbidden to be said in schools—and even in public discourse—is the honest answer to a question I am about to pose to you in closing. The answer explains how one ingenious segment of the human race really accumulated more wealth and power than others—without oppressing or exploiting other people (how could they since all are equal?).
I think that children should be taught to be properly grateful that somebody had the intelligence and ambition to create this modern world that most all of us enjoy—especially the American system of self-governance—and be taught to admire those whose genius created it.
Yes, Americans are all equal—in the eyes of the law and in the eyes of God at Judgment Day. In no other way are they equal. If you think so, line up everybody in your town and have them run a 100 yard dash; and take an IQ test.
The time that schools waste on teaching the utter nonsense that is multiculturalism is time not spent on teaching kids to read, write, and do simple arithmetic. Think about that the next time you go to Burger King, and your bill is $6.05 and when you hand the young cashier a ten dollar bill with a nickel they stare at the nickel like it is from outer space. Only by using a calculator do they learn what the nickel is for.
Take a look around a huge city such as Chicago, which rose out of an empty prairie after 1830. Look at its skyscrapers; the layout of the streets and train tracks; the organization of the sewage systems, clean water supply, telephone lines, electrical wires, the parks system, the museums, the libraries, the huge ports for ships, the manufacturing assembly lines, and the airports; the numerous sports venues and the games that are played there; and the maps that help us get around.
Imagine the amount of planning and engineering; the creativity and ingenuity; that made this all possible.
Imagine the planning and engineering it takes to fly a spaceship to the moon and land on a particular spot, such as the Sea of Tranquility.
Have you ever looked at the incredible detail of the maps in a World Atlas or Rand McNally Road Atlas or a map of the heavens and wondered how it got there? Who figured all this out and made it available to everyone?
Do you ever wonder how all of those airplanes in the sky know how to get where they are going?
Do you wonder how it is that the United States leads the world in agricultural production?
Let's talk about the inventions that make life in America—in what we call the civilized modern world—wonderful for most all of us. We have air conditioning, airplanes, anesthesia, aspirin, ATMs, automobiles, adhesive bandages, bar codes, barbed wire, batteries, bicycles, blood banks, calculators, cameras, motion picture cameras, cans, cardboard, cement, clocks, compact discs, CAT scans, computers, concrete, contact lens, credit cards, defibrillators, dentures, metal detectors, smoke detectors, dishwashers, drinking fountains, dry cleaners, dynamite, electrocardiograms, e-mail, elevators, engines, escalators, eyeglasses, fax machines, fiber optics, fiberglass, film, flashlights, frozen foods, GPS, guitars, helicopters, hypodermic syringes, insulin, the internet, lasers, lawnmowers, light bulbs, LCDs, locomotives, loudspeakers, MRIs, matches, microchips, microphones, microscopes, microwave ovens, mirrors, missiles, motors, motorcycles, neon lights, nuclear reactors, nylons, oil wells, pacemakers, paperclips, paper towels, parachutes, particle accelerators, pasteurizers, pens, pencils, penicillin, cell phones, phonographs, photographs, printing presses, radar, radios, razors, refrigerators, respirators, revolvers, rifles, robots, roller coasters, rubber bands, safety pins, satellites, seat belts, sewing machines, shoe laces, silicone, slot machines, snowmobiles, soft drinks, sonar, postage stamps, spaceships, staplers, steel, stethoscopes, stoves, straws, submarines, sunglasses, sunscreen, supermarkets, synthesizers, tampons, army tanks, teabags, Teflon, telegraphs, telephones, cell phones, telescopes, televisions, thermometers, thermostats, tires, toilet tissue, toasters, toilets, tractors, traffic lights, transistors, typewriters, ultrasound, vaccinations, vacuum cleaners, Velcro, Viagra, video games, videotape, virtual reality, vitamins, washing machines, X-rays, and zippers.
Now I ask you a question: what do all of the above have in common?
