How “Cultural Marxism” became the Far-Right’s Scapegoat


Hey guys, today’s video is gonna be a bit different. Because it’s partially gonna be a game show. But the main focus lies on showing the connection between the extremely anti-Semitic conspiracy theory of Cultural Bolshevism propagated by the extreme Right in Weimar Germany, and the Cultural Marxism theory you often hear today. And yes, there is a connection, although the Right and certain YouTube skeptics like to pretend it doesn’t exist. So what is Cultural Marxism? Well, everyone seems to have a different definition on this but the general consensus seems to be that there is a certain group of people, namely Marxists, who try to influence Western culture in a certain way to ultimately bring down Western civilization which they view as oppressive. Their tools to reach this goal are things like feminism, multiculturalism, diversity quotas, or through Arts or Social Sciences. The explanation of what Cultural Marxism actually is heavily depends on who you ask. Jordan Peterson for instance usually uses the term “Postmodernism,” and traces this movement back to French intellectuals like Jacques Derrida, but the theory is basically the same. However the vast majority of people who buy into this theory refer to something called the Frankfurt School as the origin of this subversive movement. Where a bunch of Marxists got together to think of a way to turn a Capitalist society into a Communist one through different means than calling for the uprising of the Proletariat since this wasn’t just appealing to the masses after the disaster of Stalinism. What they came up with was Cultural Marxism or sometimes called Critical Theory. Now you might be wondering, “what do the Nazis have to do with this? People like Sargon or Stefan Molyneux never attribute this supposed movement to Jews or say anything which could be laid out as anti-Semitic.” Well, all in due time. Let’s take a look at history first. Here’s where you’ll be able to score your first point. You will hear a quote and if you can vaguely guess who might have said it you score a point. Let’s listen in [Narrator] Bolshevism is not only anti-bourgeois, it is anti-cultural. It means in the final consequence, the absolute destruction of all economic, social, state, cultural and civilizing advances made by Western civilization for the benefit of a rootless and nomadic international clique of conspirators who have found their representation in Jewry. [Three Arrows] Now the end kinda gave it away there but that’s okay. If you guessed this quote is probably from some Nazi, you’re correct. It is taken from one of Joseph Goebbels’ speeches in 1935. Starting in the Weimar Republic and up until 1945, the far-Right used the term Cultural Bolshevism to demonstrate how the Bolsheviks tried to subvert German society with progressive art, lifestyle and things like Bauhaus architecture, to eventually take over completely, while simultaneously destroying the appreciation of ‘non-degenerate art.’ The Nazis viewed Bolshevism or Marxism as inherently Jewish, by the way. And like Cultural Marxism today, the Nazis always kept it really vague and difficult to pin down who was actually doing the supposed subversion of Western civilization and how. Now just because they sound very similar, that doesn’t mean there’s necessarily a link between the anti-Semitic conspiracy theories of the Nazis and the theory of Cultural Marxism today. But by the end of this video you will see where I’m coming from. For now, we’ll put German history to the side for a second. Let’s look at the two guys who did the biggest job in spreading the idea of Cultural Marxism subverting Western civilization through academia. And here you can earn you’re next point I will give you a book title, and you can guess who wrote it. Here it goes: ‘The Death of the West: How Dying Populations and Immigrant Invasions Imperil Our Country and Civilization’ If you guessed Stefan Molyneux that would be understandable since it sounds very much like the secondary title of his book but it’s actually from Pat Buchanan who is your typical borderline racist, paleo-conservative who likes to complain about Jews being overrepresented in the U.S. Supreme Court. In his book that I just mentioned he claims that ‘Cultural Marxists’ subvert and de-Christianize Western civilization through academia, and also points to the Frankfurt school. And by de-Christianize, he doesn’t mean people are less likely to love their neighbour but become more accepting towards homosexuality and stuff like that. He also wrote a book on how Britain should have never declared war on Nazi Germany and that the Holocaust was more or less a consequence of that. Now my summary was very simplified but Christopher Hitchens wrote a good critique of it which I will leave in the description. And like the Jews in Weimar Germany, the Frankfurt School provides a convenient target for people like Buchanan. By centring the conspiracy around Marxism, since there are no Bolsheviks around anymore, they want to evoke the feeling that Western culture is being attacked from the outside. By a mysterious anti-American cabal that nobody can really pin down, but has its fingers in everything. The other guy is William S. Lind, who is a bit more overt about his views than Pat Buchanan. For instance he consistently speaks out for bringing back hanging as a common sentence for crime, but only in what he describes as ‘Urban areas.’ In 1989, he spoke at a conference and claimed that political correctness and Cultural Marxism were totalitarian ideologies that were turning American campuses into small Ivy-covered, North Koreas, where the student or faculty member who dares to cross any of the lines set up by the ‘Gender-Feminists’ or the ‘Homosexual Rights Activists,’ would quickly find themselves in legal trouble. And this was in 1989 so as you can see, this is not a new talking point by the Right. And here is where we get to the good stuff like so many of the YouTube skeptics or Jordan Peterson, Lind cultivated a certain group of people with his comments. [Speaker] Could Jewish individuals use their position of power to seek out revenge against places like Europe and Russia, that have a history of expelling Jews?
[Peterson] Okay, hold it, hold it, hold it [Three Arrows] In 2002, he attended a conference in Washington D.C. He held a speech at this conference, which was supported by the bi-monthly Holocaust denial magazine ‘Barnes Review,’ in front of a bunch of self-described historical revisionists, anti-Semites, and neo-Nazis. And while I should mention that Lind is not a Holocaust denier, in his speech he identified a small group of people who had poisoned American culture and pointed to a specific connection. “These guys” – meaning those guys over at the Frankfurt School – “they were all Jewish.” Which was, of course, met with thundering applause by his audience. Now up until this point, I only talked about where this theory originated and how it entered the modern discourse. What about the Frankfurt School? Let’s take a look. I can’t go into much detail here because philosophy is not my strong side, but even as a layman, reading up on the Frankfurt School and the work of the theorists there, it becomes blatantly obvious that it doesn’t fit the narrative of the Cultural Marxism conspiracy theory. Let’s listen to another quote and try to guess who might have said it. [Narrator] Culture today is infecting everything with sameness. Film, radio, and magazines form a system. Each branch of culture is unanimous within itself and all are unanimous together. Film and radio no longer need to present themselves as art. [Three Arrows] Now that sounded awfully similar to Paul Joseph Watson’s criticism of modern entertainment.
[Watson] Look at popular music The same handful of people writing and producing songs for the same handful of popular artists. Why do you think everything sounds the same? The same precession of electronic beats, repeated hooks, and verbal diarrhea that passes for popular music now. [Three Arrows] He is not the one who wrote this though. It was actually Theodore Adorno, who is credited as the main proponent of critical theory, and the Frankfurt School. But while Paul attributes him and his colleagues with the ‘phasing of popular culture,’ the Frankfurt School criticizes the exact same thing in their book ‘Dialectic of Enlightment’ under the chapter ‘The Culture Industry.’ Only that Adorno believes Capitalism is at fault for this and, you know, maybe he has a point there. What is more likely to be the reason for this? Is it maybe that sex sells and gets attention? Or is it the plan or Adorno and Horkheimer — who would have despised this — to secretly utter in a new era of Communism. I’ll let you decide. Okay we’re getting close to the end here so I only have two questions left. I’m looking for a philosopher who strongly criticized Postmodernism because he thought that people like Derrida, Foucault, and Nietzsche committed a contradiction that critiques of Postmodernism by employing concepts and methods that only modern reason can provide. He also criticized Nietzsche’s methods as a gesture towards the lost of unity in Western culture that was provided by religion in pre-modern times. If you guessed it was the saviour of Western civilization himself, Jordan Peterson, you would be wrong. I was talking about a guy called Jürgen Habermas, who took over as the main representative of the Frankfurt School after Adorno died, and who is one of the most prominent critics of Postmodernism. So prominent, in fact, that he has his own entry in the ‘Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy’ Now some of you might be asking yourself “a Marxist criticizing Postmodernism? How does that go together since Peterson always mentions those Postmodern Neo-Marxists?” Well this really shows the big problem when people talk about these things on YouTube. They use certain words so interchangeably, without explaining what they are actually talking about until these words have lost all their meaning. Marxism is the same thing as Communism, which is the same thing as Postmodernism and Stalinism, et cetera, et cetera They should just call them the ‘bad guys’ from now on, seriously. What I’m getting at is that this Boogeyman that the Cultural Marxism meme is trying to sell you as the Frankfurt School is not at all based in reality. While people like Adorno, Horkheimer, Löwenthal, and Neumann were Marxists, they were hardly hell-bent on destroying Western values or civilization. In fact, they wanted to hold on and promote these values like rationalism and personal freedom. What they critiqued was the way that Capitalism was detrimental to Enlightenment values, and culture. And if you take a dive into their actual work, you will find that some of these guys actually disliked things like Postmodernism, Pop culture, or political correctness. The notion that these guys wanted to bring about Communism with the means of political correctness is even contradictory to Marxist understanding that this goal can only be reached by changes in economic relationships between people. But I’m sure if there’s anyone in the comment sections with a background in philosophy [they] can explain it much better than I can. You know, there’s a reason Wikipedia had to remove the entry for Cultural Marxism and move it to the entry of the Frankfurt school as a conspiracy theory. And it’s not the international Jewish cabal. It is because not a single person could provide evidence for it or show a link between the people in the Feminist cringe compilations and some guys in Germany writing about how much they hate shitty boy bands. Ultimately this theory is defeated by one question: Where is the evidence? You know, where is it? Where are these Marxist countries in the West? In the birth country of Marx, the two biggest Communist parties which are the German Communist party and the Marxist-Leninist Party, didn’t even get more than 0.1% of the votes combined. You know, Trump is president, and Brexit happened, and all of Europe is shifting to the right, But since I saw some college students waving the USSR flag on YouTube, this really is the biggest threat to Western values, I guess. I’m obviously not a Communist so if there is a takeover ahead, I will want to know. But no one can provide me any evidence. Not even Miley Cyrus coming out and saying that she really opened her eyes to bringing down Western culture via dancing naked on stage. And if you ask people who subscribe to the Cultural Marxism meme for evidence they’ll usually point to political correctness or radical students. Well, maybe it’s not the international Marxist cabal who is secretly pulling the strings but other factors. Maybe politicians and companies adapt political correctness to appeal to a broader voter and consumer base. And yes, I do acknowledge that college students tend to be more radical and some of the stuff they do is insane but this has always been the case. A lot of people tend to get way too confident in their views when their in college. Like, for instance, when a couple of feminist female students during one of Adorno’s lectures — who was the head figure of the Frankfurt School — stood up, took off their clothes and started kissing Adorno as a form of protest against patriarchal structures, which produced this great photo. And while other men might have embraced this form of protest Old Man Adorno didn’t. He called the police on them and had them removed. This was in the late 60s by the way. And now, at last, we’re here at the last quote for the video. And if you didn’t score any points up until now this is your chance to make it all up. “The doctrine of Marxism repudiates the aristocratic principle of Nature and substitutes it for [the] eternal privilege of force and energy, numerical mass and its dead weight. Thus it denies the individual worth of the human personality, impugns the teaching [that] nationhood and race have a primary significance, and by doing this it takes away the very foundations of human existence and human civilization. If the Marxist teaching were to be accepted as the foundation of life in the universe, it would lead to the disappearance of all order that is conceivable to the human mind. And thus the adoption of such law would provoke chaos in the structure of the greatest organism that we know, with the result that the inhabitants of this planet Earth would disappear.” Now, who might have wrote this? Is it from this book? Or this book? Or maybe from the manifesto of mass murderer Anders Breivik since he also believed in Cultural Marxism. Well, all very good guesses but it’s actually from this book. Specifically, from chapter two, ‘Years of Study and Suffering in Vienna.’ And the only word I had to leave out to make it almost indistinguishable from what people like Stefan Molyneux want to make you believe is the biggest threat to the West right now is Jewish. It’s nothing but Red Scare hysteria, then and now. And here’s where we come full circle. The Cultural Bolshevism conspiracy theory of the Nazis is inseparable to the Cultural Marxism meme of today. These parallels are not incidental. Do you think that in any of Sargon’s videos he shows the link between what he calls ‘Cultural Marxists’ and even a sentence by anyone of the Frankfurt School? Neither does Stefan Molyneux, Paul Joseph Watson or Aydin Paladin. They require you to accept it as a given that this is what’s happening without demonstrating how this actually happens or making any specific references to the teachings of the Frankfurt School They don’t do it because there is none. And the only way you can subscribe to this is thinking, “you know the Nazis and Anders Breivik may have been mass murdering psychopaths whose ideas completely ran against what Western Values are but that Cultural Marxism thing – they had that figured out. Except it’s not the Jews of course, it’s the Globalists.” Now do I think people like Sargon or Stefan raging anti-Semites who read ‘Mein Kampf’ every day before going to bed? No. They simply bank on outrage and alarmism. According to Stefan my country should have collapsed five or six times by now with the video ‘There Will Be No Economic Recovery’ having aged especially well. But I’m sure the caliphate will be declared any second now. On top of that, every one of these guys seems to believe it to a varying degree. Most of the people who talk about on YouTube seem to have bought fully into it or Armoured Skeptic for instance mentioned that he thinks it’s real to a certain degree in a livestream With Paul Joseph Watson I have no idea what he actually believes since he is obviously just a con-man. Cultural Marxism is nothing but a conspiracy theory, rooted in anti-Semitism and propagated by people who fail to understand certain changes in culture they dislike. Okay, that’s it for today folks. Special thanks go out to Maria The Witch and The Wrong Bishop for lending me their fantastic voices for this video. And I highly encourage you to check out their channels. As always you will find the sources for this video in the description. And feel free to subscribe, follow me on Twitter, or to take the conversation to the comment section. Until next time, have a good one.

  1. I just discovered you channel and love it.. Its nice to have a voice for common sense on YouTube to counter the stupid people bitching about how marvel movies are trying to kill off straight white men

  2. Roughly ten percent of ANY group of people are A-Holes. Good and very bad ideas come from all sides. At some point a very select few are running the show and to stay in power must become oppressive over others.

  3. It's very slanderous to equate a liberal Jordan Peterson in a video depicting the far right. Incredibly misleading..

  4. Main Postcolonial Theory sources : Louis Althusser, Antonio Gramsci, Karl Marx

    Poststructuralist Thinkers: Derrida, Foucault, and Judith Butler.

    The first list is composed of Marxists. The second list is composed of Marxists and those whose ideas are compatible with Marxism.

    If you take the ideas and theories of the six names that I listed, read some of their books, you will find that all of them point to western culture as a malaise of oppressive tendencies for the sake of an elitist hierarchy.

    Capitalism serves only the elite masters. Everything you think and do is a product of brainwashing and conditioning by tools of the state such as school church and political parties.

    If you are a deviant from the elite ideology you are dealt with by the oppressive institution (police/military).

    Gender construction only serves the elite.
    “Hard working honest people” have a colonized mind.
    The institution of the family only serves to produce labor/enforcers for the elite capitalist game.

    So on and so forth…etc.

    It is fair to say that Marxism and Marxist thought generally, influenced or was birthed by these academics. Their students have taken the program and have become professors themselves with their own spin on the theories at work here.

    A human bias call the familiarity bias, engenders people to these ideas in university.

    The more people you have exposed to these ideas, the more their own lenses become tinted with Marxism and they begin to analyze the world through a pseudo Marxist lense.

    It’s not difficult to figure out people. The same deconstruction that says the state uses public education to imprint its values on the populace is also being used in university towards the same end.

    I am a historian and an anthropologist. I eat these theories for breakfast.

  5. 9:26 OMG that's the Bentall Centre in Kingston, Surrey (my hometown!) Nevertheless, excellent video! Keep up your brilliant work debunking poisonous right-wing conspiracy theories!

  6. Well maybe define far right and not lump everyone into a neat little box. Are all conservatives far right like the media is trying to push? And good luck to your channel because the media I am sure will be coming down on anyone that is not main stream even on the left. It's going to hit everyone I think. And I guess you could blame Trumps election but that wouldn't be totally correct. It's that mega corps don't like independent political commentary they can't control. Good luck.

  7. frankfurt school critical theory is not to be missmatched with horrible french post modernism or poststruccturalism.

  8. I hate Nazis and Commies both are bad stop rooting for them. Also Korea suffered from both, same poland, Estonia, Lithuania, Finland, Most of Asia (except Japan). So yeah people stop being bias.

  9. You’re setting up the narrative that communism is the end game then debunking the straw man that you set up. Communism and capitalism are TOOLS used by the same people The end game is GLOBALIZATION. Not as in “there’s a globalist under my bed ala Alex Jones” but real globalization as in POWER. There IS a conspiracy to destroy western civilization and European nationalism but again that’s not the end game either. It’s because Caucasian people who are nationalists are the biggest threat to these people. They want a mixed race worker bee consumer who will obey and not care about race and religion and country etc etc etc.God created diversity and it’s beautiful. Japanese culture and Irish culture and Arabs in the Middle East and Mongolians and Zulus and the Norse and Mestizo and northeast red native Americans and many hundreds more. Everyone with their own culture and traditions and religion etc etc etc. If ALL parties involved agree to become a MULTICULTURAL SOCIETY then I say beautiful! That’s freedom and everyone agrees so have at it. But FORCED diversity by government by the barrel of a gun AGAINST THE WILL of the majority of the people in said country is wrong on many levels. Tyranny being one of them. Is it “The Jews” ? as you sarcastically say? Yes in part it is. There’s many industries and institutions that are controlled by Zionist elitist Jews and leftist Jews but there’s also THE Vatican and THE British Royals and many other scheming factions that it seems that have come together in some kind of agreement where they feel that THEY are gonna be the shot callers of the entire planet earth. I think a ruling class one percent exists in every race and religion and they form a uneasy untrustworthy alliance of mutual interests so they can keep their respective POWER. EVERYONE should be pro freedom and ant tyranny no matter what. BTW capitalism really is destroying our planet. I don’t think we have time to debate anymore it’s too late. We can make Bernie Sanders king of America and sadly I feel that we are too late. We’re screwed.

  10. Scapegoat? jesus your blind. Enjoy your red coolaid commie. Not everyone on the right is some supremacist nazi lunatic.

  11. I'm a philosophy student and believe me, you've debunked "cultural marxism" better than most of my collegues ever could, great video

  12. It's ironic how "Communist" Bauhaus architecture ended up hosting capitalists in their mega skyscrapers by Mies van der Rohe and others.

  13. "Why does all pop music sound the same?" Because all these acts are competing with each other and aren't about to let a single opportunity to co-opt something lucrative pass them by. So, yes, it is all about capitalism, not Marxism.

  14. I'm so happy that I got the Habermas and the Mein Kamp quotes right! Also, as a Marxist, I found this video very good in briefly explaining differences between the schools and views. Many of my colegues in economics or philosophy wouldn't even get close to this.

  15. Philosophy student at the Geothe University (in Frankfurt) here, who is interested in the Frankfurt School (and has recently written a final on Habermaß). Basically the Frankfurt School developed critical theory as a tool to analyse our current (CAPITALIST) society. In their analysis they intially used many of the central assumptions of Marxism, but abandoned or fundamentally changed many of them later on. I can't and won't give a definitive judgement upon the moral beliefs of Adorno, Horkheimer or Habermaß since I'm only really starting out my journey into their teachings. But when I view the world through the lense of critical theory there is only one moral belief that could be interpreted as """communist""": That the superiority of the wealthy is not inherently good, but must justify itself through its contribution to the common good.

    And to be honest I don't think that position is either radical nor unreasonable.

  16. You're right about Frankfurt Scholars being opposed to political correctness. Habermas even coined the term "left-wing fascism".
    Habermas also developed the idea of discourse ethics, in which he implied that all participants of discourse can rationally understand the consequence of a moral decision.
    This seems to me very similar to the free marketplace of (moral) ideas.

    However, Habermas' critique of postmodernism differs fundamentally from others, namely that he actually took postmoderism seriously, unlike other 'philosophers'.

  17. really good video, it outs these people for the uneducated clowns they are!

  18. Cultural Marxism is a disease and nationalism is the cure.
    Individualism in unity with civic and ethno nationalism will finally destroy the evil sickness known as communism, corporatism and Cultural Marxism.
    We rise in unity against authoritarian globalism.
    All races and creeds must unite to smash the red menace.

  19. What is "Western culture or civilization" anyway? West of what? How is culture and civilization defined…really?

  20. If you don't know that the phrase "Cultural Marxism" was birthed one morning in Pat Buchanan's toilet, please stop talking.

  21. Lke the similar quote from captain Anderson from Mass Effect " this got a lot complicated"

  22. I'd consider myself a social democrat. But I do enjoy some of Peterson's work. His bible analysis and self help talks are both really interesting to watch. His political stuff, of course, is trash as you've pointed out here. However, that is also how I knew that one question was not Peterson, because he LOVES Niche. He never criticizes anything from Niche.

    Why do I mention this? Because I don't think Peterson is "in with" the alt right like a lot of people seem to think. He has whole hour long lectures about how bad Nazism is, and how their propaganda was effective. He has disavowed Nazis several times, and has gone on record as stating that the alt right is just identity politics for white people. I think he actually believe the Cultural Marxism stuff, and has essentially made a deal with the devil banking on using these far right figures as a way to spread his word because they are the only ones who have him on and because its making him a lot of money.

    Does that excuse him spreading it? Of course not. As a tenured professor he should be able to sort himself out of it. But I think he is a pretty interesting individual anyways.

  23. "bad guys" doesn't sound as intellectual. Didn't you know they are intellectuals? …Of the Dark Web?

  24. I bet your channel is not going to be taken down anytime soon,, excellent propaganda, my friend, but that is all it is.

  25. Paul Joseph Watson believes in the same as Alex Jones. Which is selling water filters and SUPER MALE VITALITY TM.

  26. The whole problem with Marxism is its lack of foundation, nothing can ever be justified therefor anything can be justified. The intertwined relationship with Darwinism and dedication to physicalism leaves them in a regress reality. The metaphysical interpretation is a spectrum. This only accounts to the level of objectivity from absolutism to fallabalism, if you fall to the right. If you fall to the left of the center it’s all subjective, but the question of whether reality is objective or subjective is black and white. The ethical, therefor political implications, is why no matter what Marxist proclaim, it will lead to demise.

  27. This was a pretty good video. I don't think a lot of people use the term "cultural marxism" to refer to any conspiracy theories or to frankfurt school. The way it is used, I think people talk about the term to refer to how far left ideologues try to install their values upon others with power tactics (mobbing, silencing, shaming and occasional violence).

    Inaccurate use of the word perhaps, but that is unfortunately common in political discussion. Kinda like "alt-right" started out as a term for white nationalists but now pretty much means… a right wing youtuber? I don't even know.

  28. "Hittlet like dogs, so if you like dogs you are a Nazi" Basically this whole video, I'm saving you 15 minutes.

  29. You can also say that fascism is a threat to the west. Even though it's from the west, it contradicts the foundational values that formed the modern west. Like equality of all man, individual rights etc. Using compassion as justification to favor the collective rights of the "marginalized group" over individual rights is also a threat to western values.

  30. Marxism is the denial of God, to allow evil to influence the minds of the masses. That's why you now have men wearing skirts, and going to the ladies room in public restaurants. That's why you have girls joining the boy scouts, who are now going bankrupt. That's why you have women insulted at the idea of being mothers, hating men, and aborting their children in the name of "choice". God help us.

  31. WTF. All good art is leftist. Right wing art=Gart Brooks, Ben Shapiro's novels , the Apprentice, Christmas songs and Steven fucking Crowder comedy. Of course there's a culture war, good art vs right wing bullshit entertainment.

  32. Why did the natsoc consider it jewish? 😉

    So why are you making this video? To defend cultural marxism?
    Why are people attacking it? Why blaming it on the natsoc?

    It is quite blatant. You can argument as much as you want, but truth is that cultural marxism is very real and has very real effects on our society.

    And these effects are pungeant.
    And people are fed up with the degeneracy.

    It's not because you lay down facts and point your finger to the natsoc that it makes it less real. Your only argument is, its from the nazi, so it is bad and not true…

    Actually you are plainly giving credit to the natsoc for seeing it for what it is.

    Ps: Karl Marx was jewish.

  33. I feel proud of myself for instantly identifying the Adorno quote (despite never having taken a philosophy course or read any Adorno). Studying politics and philosophy through wikipedia articles is finally paying off!

  34. Ex-KGB agent Yuri Bezmenov's interview can be used to connect the dots of cultural Marxist conspiracy. He provided some serious proofs about their role in subverting academia in India; though he did not say anything about the Jews' role.

  35. Christ in a sidecar. Pat Buchanan wrote a book about how the holocaust was England's fault, yet somehow he's still rich and powerful and accepted by mainstream society?

  36. What you've done is take the worst statements, debunk them (rightly by the way) and then claim the entire idea of cultural marxism is nonsense. But that just means you missed the point of what cultural marxism is, or at least how the term is used in today's context.

    Cultural marxism nowadays is used to refer to the application of Marx' class struggle ideas on race, gender, sexuality and more, i.e. intersectionality. And people who adhere to this ideology are often called SJWs.

    Are SJWs as numerous as the far right would have you believe? No, but there are quite a bit of them around.
    Do SJWs yield as much power as the far right would have you believe? No, but they are apparently capable of injecting their politics into several prominent aspects of our society, like some big Hollywood films lately.
    Do SJWs have annual secret meetings in which they plan the downfall of western civilisation? No.

    But there are people out there who want to drastically change how our society looks at race, gender and more and are against many aspects our current civilisation. And if those people get what they want, that would have serious effects on our society, enacting some drastic changes. And that is what cultural marxism is. No secret plot against the west, but just ideologues who are against many aspects of the west and have gained a decent amount of influence in several areas of society. Far right and alt right youtubers blow this out of proportion and claim they are much more of a danger than they are, but ultimately it is true that there is such a thing as cultural marxism (as an ideology, not a strange secret plot) working against what we would call classical western values like individualism.

  37. Enjoyed the game show format but can't get over your obviously twisted and selective use of history. Your use of "far right" is ridiculous. Simple concept. Extreme left = TOTAL government (totalitarian). Extreme right = ZERO government (anarchy). NAZIS are far right? Pure rubbish.

  38. Marxist, they keep using that word. I don't think it means, what they think it means.

  39. Dosnt matter if called progressive left or cultural Marxism still a cancer just try stating an unfassionable opinion in the workplace and the meaning will soon be explained to you with dismissal

  40. Basically he said that the far-right is anti-Semetic and some people don't understand Post-Modernism, which got a big "duh" from me, but for the most part the video barely focuses on what's on the title or the concept of Cultural Marxism it's self. I was open to argument but the absolute lack of focus on analyzing what Cultural Marxism is, isn't, or is accused of being made me thumbs it down. Borderline click bait.

  41. Basically "people who talk about this are grifters or anti-Semetic" without actually explaining how.

  42. Marxism is a complete disaster. ANY system that must be implemented at the point of a gun & needs razor wire & landmines to keep people in, is a living nightmare. Cultural Marxism is the cult left over from the nightmare. We have what 78 genders now? And seeing people as warring groups NOT individuals is idiotic. We will always be individuals. Marxism, Nazism, Islamism, etc are all collectivist garbage, used to murder & brutalize people. I'll take free markets & liberty, thanks.

  43. Finally, a youtuber who argues against the right wing shirtlords without trying to convince everyone to become communists.

  44. You're taking the antisemitism point as a given. By naming something you don't agree with a "conspiracy" makes your whole video lack credibility. You're swallowing what your overlords tellyou to.
    Aside from that, you didn't even post any proof of those evil nahtzees lying to the masses (for profit?) or counter-proof their words.
    I assume the point of the video was to persuade your crowd that this is all a farce, a new "red terror" kind of stuff. Well, you just posted quotes and events and moronically innocent arguments like "where are all the marxists" when 90% of young people are materialists, mock the υπερφυσικόν, are pro-immigrant and hate their roots. Saying that they are just kidding is not a serious argument. This isn't a joke. This is life in the West.
    The one thing we can agree on is that it's not solely muh cUlTuRal mArxIsm fault. Clearly obvious when all the big multinational companies go all "we're soo lovin' gays, man yaaas june pride month" to appeal to the masses. That proves though that the masses are indeed left-wing thinking and have anti-"traditional" views. Besides, caps and commies are the differenet sides of the same coin. Fighting hand by hand figuratively and literally decades back against the, as they portrait him, real-life Voldemort.

  45. Did you know that Highways are anti-Semitic because Hitler implemented Highways? Highways are just a tool to propagate the far-right war machine.

    Pretty much the line of thinking in this video.

  46. A common theme amongst far-right voices. Never do their homework, and never support their statements with any facts. All baseless bullshit for the willfully uneducated and ignorant.

  47. Lol he called the police on them? Some marxist. That's seems like a good protest to me, not just cuz "hur dur nakeeeed womun" but also cuz that makes sense.

  48. Who else watching all of these again before the channel gets taken down?

  49. Have any of you ever noticed how the actual Marxist socialist states of the eastern bloc were vary patriotic and dare I say nationalistic compared to the capitalist western countries? Oh but please go on about how "cultural Marxism" is responsible for everything in modern society you don't like such as "degeneracy." It's totally not liberalism and capitalism where every decision is made based on how much profit and not on the quality of the work of decision made.

  50. Anyone who still thinks there is any difference between communism and fascism is still sleeping. Neither system recognizes the natural God-given rights of the individual. They are both collectivist tyrannies.

  51. Iconoclastic revolutions might survive for a while, but they stagnate.

  52. People who write these sorts of speeches and theories always just seem to love to raise the stakes to ridiculous degrees. It's not that something they don't like has the potential to cause problems in society, no it's THE END OF OUR SOCIETY AND OUR WAY OF LIFE AS WE KNOW IT BY NEFARIOUS FOREIGN OR INTERNAL ACTORS THAT SEEK TO DESTROY US ALL BECAUSE THEY'RE EVIL. They just jump straight to doomsday prophecies and the end of everything that we know and love. 0-100 in an instant. Can't help but wonder if they actually think like this themselves and live every day in fear of some kind of supposed extinction-level threat or if they just raise the stakes to that level to get people riled up and more likely to follow them…

  53. it's not "red scare hysteria" though, while its purpose has been to promote hysteria, the conspiracy theory (along with the rest of fascism) serves a very logical purpose for the current people at the top: it directs outrage away from property relations and real social change, and instead funnels it into hating some scapegoat like the jews, roma, muslims, mexicans, etc.
    it is a revolution of the bourgeoisie, they take the horrible economy and bring new life into it by stepping harder on labor, doing sweeping waves of privatization, they secure profits, and then basically do economic keynesianism, stimulating all the war-making industries by insisting that the nation is under threat and "we need to expand or we will surely die"

  54. Isn't it possible to be against the ideology or think it is totally real without thinking there's some cabal of leaders behind it?

  55. As a marxist, I wish us marxists posed as big a threat as the alt-right think we do

  56. The idea of Cultural Marxism is almost identical to the idea of Cultural Bolshevism, a conspiracy theory made by the Nazis, about how Bolsheviks would destroy German culture.

  57. Al did not deserve that comparison to Sargon. Poor Al, always the butt of someone's joke 😛

  58. I think Cypher the Cynical Historian said it best: conspiracy theories rely on a lack of evidence and ignoring everything that contradicts them.

  59. I do not think the majority of people who reference any of these thoughts and schools or groups who are influenced by them really understand them. Whether or not the purity of thought is there they are influential.

    The video does do well with countering the fringe conspiracy theories, but it does not really respond to people like Jordan Peterson (unless you mean to imply that his thought is directly influenced by those anti-Semites).

    An interesting video for sure, but I do not know how well it does anything beyond explain what people outside of the far right and alt-right already know about the dangers of those ideologies.

  60. European civilization isn't synonymous with the values of the Enlightenment, though.

  61. The history buff in me is very happy watching and listening to you — especially when you understand that history happens right now.

  62. Where is the evidence of Cultural Marxism? How about this video? "While people like Ardon … were Marxists, they were hardly hell-bent on destroying Western values or civilization." If you are a Marxist then you are hell-bent on destroying Western values or civilization., otherwise, you are not a Marxist.

    "Critical Theory is a social theory oriented toward critiquing and changing society as a whole, in contrast to traditional theory oriented only to understanding or explaining it. Horkheimer wanted to distinguish critical theory as a radical, emancipatory form of Marxian theory, critiquing both the model of science put forward by logical positivism and what he and his colleagues saw as the covert positivism and authoritarianism of orthodox Marxism and Communism."

    Wikipedia.

  63. Jordan Peterson, as well as anybody who thinks (cultural) Marxism and Post-Modernism are one and the same, should really take a philosophy/political studies course.

  64. Cultural Marxist is Jewish is Marx was a false Jew and his fellow Jewish Marxists who founded the Frankfurt School and indoctrinated the youth in America fellowing their escape from nazi Germany

  65. This video is a pathetic attempt to flip the truth so it’s likely Jews made it or fake ones ..you never know because they change their names and hide behind victim hood for cover and that’s why they call it jewtube

  66. Jordan Peterson labels it cultural Marxism because of what he sees in universities and the far left the idea of equity will any of you people address this qualm equity is bad and the fact none of you can address our concerns shows you are intellectually lazy, you would rather call us conspiracy theorist then have an argument. The modern far left does deserve term cultural Marxist and if they don’t please tell me why I would like to know

  67. Again. It's just Conservatives being stupid. Being Woke does not make you a Communist, there is no conspiracy, and people like Razorfist might need therapy…..

    Now let's get back to reality, oops! There's goes gravity!

  68. Is Three Arrows suggesting Jews are not massively over represented in the American supreme court and in US politics overall? Seems like he had an issue with what Buchanan said and thinks this somehow reflects badly on Buchanan.

  69. Three Arrows
    "Leftists didn't want to destroy society, they wanted to hold onto to these values like rationalism and personal freedom"
    You're referring to "leftist rationalism" not real rationalism and "Leftist personal freedom" NOT real individual freedom.
    Leftist things: Hitlerism, Italian Fascism, Marxism, Communism, Nihilism, Post Modernism, Critical Theory, Stalinism, Habermas, Adorno, Three Arrows.

  70. I cant imagine anyone other than 12yr old boys listening to Peterson or Shapiro and enjoying cheesy titles like "Peterson OWNS beta male" lul

  71. that is not the point of the word cultural Marxist the word is used because of the demand for equity among races and sexes by demanding authority to step in meeting the equity demand this is form Marxism it doesn’t mean we think you are communist, although university students are promoting communist ideas. honestly, I don’t think you understand the policies of the far left, the policies are textualized in the green new deal which wasn't created by moderate democrats but rather postmodernist. but you may not value equity or value postmodernism, I don't want to straw man this channel. The history of Karl Marx is irrelevant its about principles that mirror the "class struggle" narrative

  72. This is similar to how the far left label many conservative and centrist as "nazis" and "white supremacist" just because they give points and evidence that is contrary to the left narrative.

  73. all these idiots saying jews are behind all this smh such intellectually stupid thing to say. That would just like saying trump is nazi because he has Aryan features and the nazi loved Aryan. what does ethnicity or facial features have anything to do with ideas

  74. The concept of cultural marxism is an excuse for why the right is destined to lose the culture war. It's purpose is to make an excuse for the loss of ground by blaming a deep conspiracy instead of the fact that right wing ideology is trash.
