I've read dozens of mainstream hot takes on the #NewZealandMosqueAttack. None seem to have discussed "cultural Marxism" (the shooter explicitly referenced the CM conspiracy theory.) So I did a Google search - *nothing*. But CM is now the master narrative for white supremacists..
Here's my quick take on CM in the NZ shooter's manifesto: . He explicitly says that it is "cultural Marxists" who are "running the show", implies "they" are atheistic liberal urban Jews, and claims "they" are waging "class and racial warfare". Back in '016
3) I discovered that Donald Trump had personally met with William S. Lind (who played the leading role in seeding "culture Marxism" into the far, racist right) 4thgenwar.wordpress.com/2016/07/03/tru… & wrote a piece on links between various white supremacist and neo-Nazi terrorism & violence.
4) (here's that piece: 4thgenwar.wordpress.com/2016/07/11/tru….) Since then, I've repeatedly noticed more such acts linked in various ways to the CM conspiracy theory. Take the case of Robert Bowers, the shooter in the Tree of Life synagogue massacre. Bowers specifically targeted that synagogue
5) because of its association with the Jewish refugee aid organization HIAS. Bowers wrote, “HIAS likes to bring invaders in that kill our people. I can’t sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, I’m going in.” Now, in the "cultural Marxism" conspiracy theory
immigration is one of the weapons the architects of the grand conspiracy theory (said to be Jewish communist intellectuals from the so-called "Frankfurt School" who in the 1930s fled Hitler and relocated at Columbia University) use to marginalize white Europeans and destroy both
7) Christianity and even Western Civilization itself. Another of the weapons used is the notion of "political correctness", as a wedge to undermine traditional values. Vanishingly few writers with any sizeable megaphone have recognized the immense power of the "cultural Marxism"
8) conspiracy theory. One is Guardian contributor @jason_a_w : theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
But J. Wilson is the rare exception to the rule. Another is Yale law and history professor @samuelmoyn who seems to have, independently of my own work, recognized the crucial importance of CM as a unifying narrative. Following the Tree of Life synagogue massacre, Moyn contributed
10) a guest op-ed to the New York Times. Moyn correctly identified "cultural Marxism" as a recrudescence of the anti-Jewish "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" conspiracy theory but - in a truly astonishing close call with the true situation, missed two key facts.
11) 1st, Lind is *also* the top theorist (& also originator some would say) of what is known as 4th Dimension Warfare (4GW). Hence the subtitle of his novel "Victoria". He's had articles on the subject published by leading US military journals. You can read extensively on this
12) dimension of Lind in the writings of Dr. James Scaminaci, a sociologist and retired US military analyst (see independent.academia.edu/JamesScaminaci); 2nd, in early 2016 Lind personally met Donald Trump: 4thgenwar.wordpress.com/2016/07/03/tru…
13) actually, there are far more salient points than that, but most of them are covered in my big Lind piece I've just linked to, but I'm getting off the Tree of Life shooting track. @PaulHRosenberg, writing for Salon.com, explicitly noted the ideological links...
14) the Tree of Life massacre and "cultural Marxism" ( salon.com/2018/11/04/how… ) as did journalist, author, and researcher @DavidNeiwert, who identifies the influence of the idea and begins the sorely needed task of debunking it (which almost nobody does) dailykos.com/stories/2019/1…
15) oops - I forgot the link to that Samuel Moyn NYT op-ed - here it is : nytimes.com/2018/11/13/opi…
16) What's unfortunate is that professor Moyn seems to have accessed the 1/2 of William S. Lind's "Victoria" that Lind offers for free online and assumed it was the whole book. Not so! The book is a whopping 584 pages and includes 1) the mostly white Christian militias nuking...
17) Atlanta and forcing black families into slavery, as sharecroppers and 2) the launch of a final crusade against Islam. Anyway, thanks to Moyn he perniciousness of the "cultural Marxism" conspiracy theory now has some purchase on the pages of the Grey Lady. Moving on...
