This is a fairly major misunderstanding of the Marxist worldview. Likewise, positing as the principal organ through which cultural Marxism propagates itself in pop culture, that the Frankfurt School so explicitly denounced, would strike them as the saltiest of ironies. And colossally stupid.

But then, as Frankfurt School expert Martin Jay notes, "We have clearly broken through the looking glass and entered a parallel universe in which normal rules of evidence and plausibility have been suspended." And that's the perverse beauty of a conspiracy theory: The more that people denounce it as crazy, the more it stiffens the conviction of its adherents that they're correct ("We must be, because no one else believes it, and you sheeple are all brainwashed, ergo") to the point where they end up pitying you: "If only you could see the signs: They're everywhere!"

And so cultural Marxism—this protean right-wing boogeyman responsible for queer studies, globalization, bad modern art, women wanting a life on top of baby making, African American studies, the 1960s, post-structuralism (essentially everything that isn't nationalist, "white," and Christian)—ends up becoming akin to a cheap condom: stretched to the point of uselessness.

Actually that is postmodernism.

Just because critical theory and postmodernism are such a broad philosophies does not mean they do not exist or that they are not being applied.

I am not sure what a article about Subway systems have to do with cultural Marxism.

I can say that we have been using social issues to advance Communism for quite some time.
Education ? Communist Party USA
Leaflets & Pamphlets - The Revolutionary Communist Progressive Labor Party

All the material that you will find on my links are social issues. Using social issues to advance our Communist ideology should not come as a surprise. Unlike many on the left who denounce it, yet they continue to support it. I, like many Communists are proud of it and will openly admit that we are in a war of "Hearts and Minds" so to speak. In my opinion and many others, we have finally turned the corner and I believe we are now winning.

Nope, actually it's you, and how you behave on the forum.

And, it's totally chicken shit to post a link to a video more than an hour long as a response.

If it has anything good to say, in the spirit of Jimmyb, put it in your own words and then share it. As it is, you offered nothing whatsoever.
Thanks from Hollywood

We believe that building a left trend – an alignment of organizations and individuals – based on strategic unity is key to making that leap. The current fragments that make up the left are agreed on many things, such as: being rooted in oppressed communities and the working class, and the need for grassroots social movements. We understand that elected officials, regardless of party or political belief, are pushed and pulled in many directions, making vibrant, disruptive social movements necessary to any project for social transformation.
The left we want to build: Breaking out of the margins ? Communist Party USA

I could care less what label you want to call it. Instead of asking "experts" their opinion, I welcome both of you to peruse CPUSA or the Progressive Labor Party sites. Maybe you could both see what real communists are saying and doing instead of regurgitating what some think tank somewhere says we are doing.

Gradually, the disconnection from the real world in which my parents' generation lived became apparent, and even more slowly the feeling we ought to do something about the disconnection grew.

So yes, I deny your point for the reasons above.

And i remember being the only minority in my elementary school and in high school our coach recruited a star running back from a few towns over to transfer to our school only to be welcomed by "niggers go home" to be spray painted on the doors of our school.

We followed in stried thru 2nd wave feminism and gay rights triumphantly in the early 2000s to see marriage equality realized scoffing and the crazy religious right when they said "whats next, dogs?"

Cue the social justice warriors and the millennials coming of age. A generation that was raised by helicopter parents who bathed them in purel and wrapped them in bubble wrap to protect them from the cold, cruel world. The everybody gets a trophy because everyone is a special snowflake, generation. They were raised to idolize the great movements led by the 60s youth and the impact they had on the world. But where was their great struggle?

Surely they couldn't take on the wars again, that was so yesterday and thanks to the media being firmly implanted in Obama's ass they were completely desensitized to the years of illegal wars started by the bush regime and ramped up on methamphetamines by the nobel peace prize winning obama. This is when this craziness took hold.

So, yeah i can appreciate that you grew up when there were serious race and sex struggles, i am watching all the progress made over the last few decades be turned against itself. I dont know if you dont see it because you are to removed or just that you choose not too. I live in the shinning blue beacon in the center of the red midwest. My kids go to Minneapolis schools. I hear the crazy shit their teachers say. Its not the transtrender fad or any of that. It is that it is all being taken seriously. The divide that it is causing in the population.

I cannot believe that it is a coincidence that this divide is happening simultaneously as the rise of socialism being a mainstream political ideology here in the states.

Maybe, and most likely the term cultural Marxism is tossed around to often, by people who havent taken the time to look into it. That is modern america. The age when all of the worlds information is a few clicks away but nobody bothers to read any of it. But i do believe that it is a thing. Being that socialism goes directly against my belief system of course i am biased. I can admit that, but when i see classical liberala being labeled as nazis and the media and population find it acceptable i have to wonder why? What happened?

Take some time and look into it, it explains a lot. Check out theRuben report on YouTube. He was on TYT abd until recently would have been considered a liberal.

Fair enough. I used that clip as it was a book from someone who i thought you would recognize and respect as an intellectual. There are much shorter and recent ones. I will find one. Both gad sad and jordan Peterson have spoken at lengths on the subject.

It is not a subject that i have spent much time on so i am not comfortable attempting to communicate it properly.
