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.
I remember when there were no minorities in my schools, well maybe a Chinese guy ut they don't count really. I fully understand the helicopter parent routine, the over-protection. My girls, born and grad HS from 1983-2005, had a good hippie dad, taught them to think for themselves and to be courageous, set them off on Outward Bound adventures which definitely changed both of them for the better. encouraged them to take up individual sports, skiing, track, gymnastics. They both loved doing them anyway.

They're fine young women. They grew up in a town environment that was almost identical to mine back n the 50s and 60s. I wanted to give that to my children. So yeah Sab, I'm not tuned in to the metro beats by design. I was a kid in Houston. It wasn't a tough town, just big. If you hung downtown, you gotta watch out someone might con ya but not cut ya. But we went downtown just sorta looking for shit possibly. Never got in any fights.

Raising good kids was the way I figured I could best influence our having positive outcomes in the future, "our" being the human race.

I agree. So many of the solutions applied to remedying the social ills of our society are hardly successes. Many are negatives, at considerable expense.

I really can simply state my opposition to the term cultural Marxism: We are at a time in the timeline of human affairs in which labels are counterproductive. We have no shortage of labels.What we need to learn to do is live together, but sometimes, to me, that seems 100 percent impossible. Yes, that's a little drama. :)

I started with bare knuckle fist fights which graduated into gun fights and then got a doctorate in knife fights. Fighting is the way of life, like it or not. There is a code of honor when fighting and the rules are complicated. Judo is a good place to start which is tripping but when you knock a man on his back, say have you had enough. If he says yes help him back up to his feet and the fight is over. Kick me in the shin and off your ear goes.

That is it, the labels...the focus on the differences and using them tl create groups and then pitting them against each other. That is identity politics. Then using that in the perspective of oppressor vs oppressed is Cultural Marxism.

I lament the days when you could go outside, settle your differences then buy the looser a beer. We live in a time where classes require trigger warnings as words are violence and you can rape w/ your eyes.

This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

Marxists are people engaged in the struggle. All Marxism is cultural, and those who are just using the language are not Marxists - and, of course, most Americans have never read Marx and couldn't tell Marxism from a camel's left ball.

Well, you should know! The Twilight Zone is where you've been living and HOPE to live for all eternity.

I agree, but you started this conversation and now look. You're doing it!!!

That's my point, cut to the bone.

Sabcat will be thrilled to know that he and EndtheRep are so in sync with each other.....LOL!
The irony to all this is that I support the Democrat party along with other Communists. We never actually seriously have thought of a Communist winning an election. Although Socialist have pulled it off which is remarkable and commendable. It is also rather funny to me that it is you "progressives" who resort to name calling toward me or disrespectful comments toward me. I use to get angry about it. Now I just smile and chuckle as you go and check the correct ballots.

Remember Comrade which party had a open Socialist run for President.
