      Yes, Virginia (Dare) There Is a Cultural Marxism–And It’s Taking Over Conservatism Inc.

      Not only does Cultural Marxism exist, but it now appears to be taking over Conservatism Inc. Thus even with Paris burning, National Review was still attacking the Right. In the second round of the French election, Tom Rogan urged a vote for Emmanuel Macron on the grounds Marine Le Pen is insufficiently hostile to Vladimir Putin and is a “socialist” because she “supports protectionism.” Macron’s actual onetime membership in the Socialist Party, and his view that there was no such thing as French culture, apparently was not a problem [French election: American Conservatives Should Support Macron, April 24, 2017].

      Conservatism Inc. goes along because these goals are partially achieved through corporate capitalists, who actively push Leftist social agendas and punish entire communities if they’re insufficiently enthusiastic about gay marriage, gay scout leaders, transgendered rest rooms, sanctuary cities etc.. Wedded as it is to a clichéd defense of the “free market,” the Beltway Right not only won’t oppose this plutocratic agenda, but instead offers tax cuts to the wealthiest and most malevolent actors.

      It is because Cultural Marxism can co-exist with our current economic and political structure that our so-called “conservatives” are far more likely to align with the New Left than the Old Right. The behavior of our own captains of industry shows the rot is deep and that multiculturalism is very much part of American “liberal democratic” thinking, even informing our bogus conservatism. “Conservatism” is now defined as waging endless wars in the name of universalist values that any other generation would have called radically leftist. And Cultural Marxists themselves now define what we call “Western values”—for example, accepting homosexuality

      The takeover is so complete, we might even say “Cultural Marxism” has outlived its usefulness as a label or as a description of a hostile foreign ideology. Instead, we’re dealing with “conservatives,” who are, in many ways, more extreme and more destructive than the Frankfurt School itself.

      Good read, IMHO, if you have the time. (From 5/2/17 – apologies if this has been linked here before.)

      the nationalists are the heroes. the globalists are the elitist scum who produce nothing and live off of the work of others…basically the entire crew at NR etc.

      I’m trying to think of anyone who punished an entire community other than the NBA and North Carolina. I think a lot of this ‘support’ is really cowardice. They don’t want to be called a name of some sort, so in order to protect their brand and avoid the hassle, they just go along and continue trying to up their market share.

      CNN cancels Reza Aslan’s show “Believer” after profane anti-Trump tweets

      Also, he lied about his edu creds, etc. Just another fraud.

      @ Deplorable Bumr50:
      I try to be conservative across the board, both fiscally and on social issues.

      For example I’m not pro-abortion, don’t support gay marriage but would back civil unions, oppose affirmative action, believe government must not discriminate but that most business should have the right to do so, no matter how wrong that discrimination is. I don’t think anyone should pay more than about 18% of their income in taxes and that the federal government should be as small as possible.

      Former Florida Gov. and 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush said on Thursday that he doesn’t think President Donald Trump obstructed justice.
      The charge of obstruction could apply if the President interfered with the FBI’s investigation into Russian tampering in the election by firing James Comey as director of the agency in charge of the probe.

      “No, I don’t, but who cares what I think,” Bush said when asked whether Trump obstructed justice at a conference at Boston College. “There is a process underway and the testimony today is not as relevant to me, in that regard, as Mr. (Special Counsel Robert) Mueller’s activity.”

      Anyone dismissing Van Jones as a simple TV tool or race monger is fooling themselves.

      Van Jones: Clinton Campaign Took a Billion Dollars, Set It on Fire, Called It a Campaign

      Saturday at The People’s Summit in Chicago, former Obama green jobs czar and CNN contributor Van Jones ripped Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

      Jones took aim at the amount of money spent in the losing effort and how that money was spent.

      “First of all, I don’t mean to be rude — and I don’t mean to offend anybody,” Jones said. “But the people who ran the Hillary Clinton campaign did not spend their money on white workers, and they did not spend it on people of color. They spent it on themselves. They spent it on themselves, let’s be honest. They took a billion dollars, a billion dollars, a billion dollars, and set it on fire, and called it a campaign! That wasn’t a campaign. That’s not a campaign.”

      “A billion dollars for consultants,” he added. “A billion dollars for pollsters. A billion dollars for a data operation, that was run by data dummies who couldn’t figure out that maybe people in Michigan needed to be organized.”

      This is a persuasive, populist argument for the Marxists delivered well, and it’s not the first one I’ve seen from him.

      Right now he might be the most effective Leftist out there, compared to the rest of the loony bin.

      After the election he was just as stunned as anyone else. But he did something no one else did. He hit the road, went to places Hillary lost, and listened to people. Since then, he’s spent his time pissing into the wind, telling the Dems why they’re wrong and no one is listening to him. Pray it stays like that, because he is one of the few who has the sense to get out of his bubble and figure it out.

      They’re capable of understanding it. They just choose not to.

      They’ve written off white men, and married white women. They don’t believe that they need their votes, so it’s simpler to just ignore them than to attempt to craft a message that will appeal to them.

      The problem is that they don’t understand that 2008 and, to a lesser extent, 2012, weren’t normal elections. Yes, Obama got massive support from minority voting groups, but that wasn’t enough to put him over the top. He only won because a significant number of whites decided to vote for the “historic” first black president.

      Many of those people still voted for Republicans down-ballot, which is why the Dems lost seats everywhere else beginning in 2010, even while Obama was re-elected.

      And enough of them finally decided that they’d had enough, and weren’t interested in seeing how Obama’s third term was going to work out, “historic” first woman president or not.

      Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) told CNN’s Brianna Keilar that she too would have a “queasy feeling” if the attorney general asked her to refer to an investigation as a “matter” during an interview on Sunday.[…]

      “I would have a queasy feeling, too, though, to be candid with you,” Feinstein told Keilar. “I think we need to know more about that, and there’s only way to know about it, and that’s to have the judiciary committee take a look at that.”

      Bernie Sanders Lambasts ‘Absolute Failure’ Of Democratic Party’s Strategy

      Bernie Sanders has criticised the Democratic party’s current direction as “an absolute failure” in a speech at the People’s Summit in Chicago.

      Speaking to a crowd of 4,000 activists, Sanders hailed the “enormous progress in advancing the progressive agenda”, saying the increasing House and Senate support for a $15 minimum wage and the opposition to the Trans-Pacific partnership showed the success of the movement.

      But the Vermont senator said that establishment Democrats were standing in the way of further progress.

      “The current model and the current strategy of the Democratic party is an absolute failure,” Sanders said.

      “The Democratic party needs fundamental change. What it needs is to open up its doors to working people, and young people, and older people who are prepared to fight for social and economic justice.

      “The Democratic party must understand what side it is on. And that cannot be the side of Wall Street, or the fossil fuel industry, or the drug companies.”

      Sanders’s speech was rapturously received at the People’s Summit, a gathering of some of the most influential progressive activists and organizations in the country.

      I think we should do everything we can to encourage him in his efforts to turn the Dems into Bolsheviks

      This goes with my concerns about Van Jones.

      He’s 300x the communicator that Sanders is (500x BHO), plus he’s got permanent victim status.

      And their messages seem aligned.

      Again, they are identifying real problems but applying Marxist solutions.

      Hopefully jobs continue to grow, so Trump can hold his voter coalition together.

      This is where Sanders’ message fails.

      There’s always this lumping-together of unlike things on the Left, and it weakens their position with every seemingly unrelated thing added.

      If he’d have stopped at ‘Wall Street’, his message would be much more well-received by the morons listening to him.

      That’s kind of my point. The far-left aren’t swing voters. A swing voter might identify with Bernie’s message, but have a close relative or spouse working for any one of those three sectors.

      I think it alienates people, while the message is intended to bring them together.

      Members of the cult don’t need to be indoctrinated.

      Dems NEED swing voters.

      Puerto Rico voted overwhelmingly in favor of statehood on Sunday in a referendum that begins the steps toward sending representatives to Washington, D.C.

      According to the Wall Street Journal, 97 percent voted for statehood, though turnout was only about 23 percent. One and a half percent voted for independence from the United States, according to Decision Desk HQ, while 1.3 percent voted to keep the current status of a territory of the United States.

      Will Trump be taken down by one of these fake scandals?

      I doubt it. It might hurt his reelection chances, though.

      Will it be enough to hurt Republicans at the polls next year?

      If it looks like events are dragging Trump down, you can expect the Republicans to run on “Hey, we didn’t want the guy, either.”
