"Cultural Marxism" explained in helpful infographic (that somehow manages to avoid using "Le Happy Merchant") With BONUS CRAP PICS

It's all so obvious now!
It’s all so obvious now! (Click to enlarge.)

I‘m sorry, did I say “helpful?” I meant “so convoluted that the diagram-maker eventually gave up drawing lines between boxes because even he couldn’t figure out how all these things allegedly relate to each other.”

I should note that in addition to being a mess, this diagram is also complete bullshit, and that “Cultural Marxism” only exists in the fevered imaginations of neo-Nazis, conspiracy theorists, #Gamergaters and Bernard Chapin? For an actual history of “Cultural Marxism” as a boogeyman of the far right, see here. For more lovely “Cultural Marxism” infographics and memes, several of which do include “Le Happy Merchant,” see my earlier post on the subject.

Oh, ok. Here (after the jump) is a crapload of BONUS images I found by searching for “cultural marxism,” this time on Twitter.  [CONTENT WARNING: All the bigotries, actual pro-Hitler Tweets, cartoon semi-nudity.]

Note: This last image, as you’ve probably gathered, is not an actual SPLC poster. A Google image search shows that pretty much the only people who’ve posted it online have been right-wing asshats. For example, this guy, who regularly posts images even worse than the ones I’ve got here.

H/T — @jason_a_w on Twitter, for posting the convoluted  diagram, sent to him by someone who thought it actually made sense, and maistrechat, for linking to Jason’s Tweet in the comments here.

Should copypasta conspiracy theories be eaten from a tinfoil plate?

emilygoddess Says the person who doesn’t know the difference between rebuttal and mockery.

You can mock something as non-existing only after you have shown it not to exist

Things which are apparently the same:

1) Proving that X exists
2) Asserting that X exists

Today I learned!

Oh look, our little drive-by pooper is back. And thinks I can’t read. Actually, sirrah, I CAN read. You, however, can’t write. Or think. And that makes you infinitely worthy to be mocked and laughed to scorn.

Always glad to clear things up for you mudbrains.

Rupert,
None of your posts have bothered to provide evidence that you aren’t an alien from the Andromeda galaxy! Until you do prove that you are an earthling, I can only assume that you are fact an extraterrestrial.

I’m happy to provide proof that you an alien. You see, I read an infographic on the internet that proves it. Checkmate, Andromedans!

Roughly 80% of the people who use the term Marxism, whether alone or in conjunction with one or more adjectives or other nouns, have never read Marx and have no clue what Marx claimed or advocated. A nontrivial percentage of these have done some preliminary research via Wikipedia or the ravings of some rightwinger who has also not read any Marx, and therefore feel like they are Edumacated and Know What They Are Talking About.

Rupert gives all the signs of being a member of this group of nonsense-spouting ignorant wastrels, and now must prove that zie is not.

I know I can’t read what rupert sackvile is saying, but I think it’s because it’s so ludicrous I have no idea what the hell they’re trying to say.

I like how zie demanded proof that we believe that Cultural Marxism doesn’t exist, and then only goes “Well, the lefties believe in sexual liberation and political correctness, and all that must have traced back from Marxism, so it exists! Ha!”

Your speculation has been noted, sirrah.

Even if both of these did, in fact, stem from Marxism, how is the existence of those two ideas means that Cultural Marxism is a thing?

Rational Wiki link attempting to explain “Cultural Marxism.”

I am very happy to do that for y ou! Cultural Marxism is the ideology of a number of the members of the Frankfurt School who sought to enlist the help of minorities to subvert the established order.

Ok, that’s a definition, not a proof of existence.

Is there the slightest doubt that many of the ideas of the New Left, from political correctness to sexual liberation, can be traced directly back to the Frankfurt School and its acolytes? I think not.

Doubt here! But hey, i’m willing to discard that doubt for the sake of argument. Let’s pretend that many of hte ideas of the “New Left” can trace their roots back to the Frankfurt School. What evidence do you have that those ideas are harmful? What evidence do you have that those ideas are rooted in wanting to destroy society, rather than attempt to shape society into something more moral like every single political philosophy in the world tries to do?

The proponents of the hatred of “Cultural Marxism” always seem to talk about how Good Christian Society is going to be overthrown, or White People are going to be genocided, or some other line of bullshit paranoid racism. Given that you can describe any attempt to change society for the better as “overthrowing society and replacing it with something new,” what exactly makes the Left’s push for social change so terrible, besides it’s supposed roots?

Meanwhile, <a href="http://weeklysift.com/2014/08/11/not-a-tea-party-a-confederate-party/"this is how you construct an argument for how an old ideology shapes and influences modern ideology. In this case, how in the US the confederacy has shaped the modern Republican platform. You’ve got to actually trace out the history, showing step-by-step the cause and effect, and showing how old rhetoric is repeated or echoed in new rhetoric.

(I dunno how airtight the argument is… there still seems to be a bit of handwaving. But still, it’s fascinating.)
