Why are Americans so fearful of speaking the truth today? Or, maybe, the better question is: what occurred in the past to completely stifle our voices?
Historian William Linds' paper entitled, "The Origins of Political Correctness," states, "It is the great disease of our century, the disease that has left tens of millions of people dead in Europe, in Russia, in China, indeed around the world. It is the disease of ideology. PC is not funny. PC is deadly serious."
Lind states that if we look at political correctness from an historical point, we quickly learn that it is Cultural Marxism, which basically is the melding of Freudism and Marxism and it's premise was just as workers were oppressed under capitalism, so under Western culture, everyone lived in a constant state of psychological repression. "Liberating" everyone from that repression became one of cultural Marxism's main goals. He also indicates that every man involved in bringing this ideology to our shores were all Jewish.
Linda Kimball's paper on "Cultural Marxism" breaks down the origins of this hideous ideology further explaining its disastrous affects on America. In it she states that cultural marxism and political correctness are disguised in modern times as Multiculturalism.
Both authors indicate that these changes began, not in the 60's, but actually in the 1930's, when two Marxist-theorists - Antonio Gramsci of Italy and Georg Lukacs of Hungary - concluded that the Christianized West was the obstacle standing in the way of a communist (Jewish) new world order.
In 1933, the Frankfort School, formerly known as the Institute for Social Research, was established at Columbia University after its founders fled Nazi Germany after Hitler came to power. In addition to Gramsci was music critic Theodor Adorno, psychologist Erich Fromm, sociologist Wilhelm Reich and professor Herbert Marcuse. Its original strategy to destroy America could only be accomplished by infiltrating and subverting cultural institutions, since it was known that Americans steeped in traditions of freedom and liberty would never succumb to a frontal assault and be used as cannon fodder in a bloody revolution.
Gramsci concluded that Christianity's dominance in the West had corrupted the workers class and it would have to be de-Christianized by a "long march through the culture." His battleground would be the culture itself starting with the traditional family, then completely engulfing churches, schools, media, entertainment, civic organizations, literature, science and history. His new proletariat would be women, criminals, and racial minorities. He stated that the social and cultural order must be radically transformed and turned completely upside-down with the new proletariat placed in power at the top.
The school would go on to patent "Critical Theory" accurately defined as destructive criticism of all the main elements of Western culture, including Christianity, capitalism, authority, the family, patriarchy, hierarchy, morality, tradition, sexual restraint, loyalty, patriotism, nationalism, heredity, ethnocentrism, convention, and conservatism."
Herbert Marcuse, who stayed behind in America after WWII, favored "polymorphous perversion," which Freud theorized that humans are born with unfocused sexual libidinal drives, deriving sexual pleasure from any part of the body. The objects and modes of sexual satisfaction are multifarious, directed at every object that might provide pleasure. This theory was radically interjected into the 60's sexual revolution with staggering effects that are still with us today.
Consequently, additional intellectual firepower was added to cement cultural Marxism's base: 'authoritarian personality.' This concept is premised on the notion that Christianity, capitalism, and the traditional family create a character prone to racism and fascism. Thus, anyone who upholds America's traditional moral values and institutions is both racist and fascist. Children raised by traditional values parents, we are told to believe, will almost certainly become racists and fascists. By extension, if fascism and racism are endemic to America's traditional culture, then everyone raised in the traditions of God, family, patriotism, gun ownership, or free markets is in need of psychological help.
To poison American society further, the Frankfort School said history was determined by which groups, defined as men, women, races, religions, etc., had power or "dominance" over other groups. Certain groups, especially white males, were labeled "oppressors," while other groups were defined as "victims." Victims were automatically good, oppressors bad, just by what group they came from, regardless of individual behavior. They incorporated into their cultural Marxism what Nietzsche called the "transvaluation of all values." What that means, in plain English, is that all the old sins become virtues, and all the old virtues become sins. Homosexuality is a fine and good thing, but anyone who thinks men and women should have different social roles is an evil "fascist." That is what political correctness now teaches children in public schools all across America. (The Frankfurt School wrote about American public education. It said it did not matter if school children learned any skills or any facts. All that mattered was that they graduate from the schools with the right "attitudes" on certain questions.)
Herbert Marcuse became a "guru," of sorts, during the student rebellion in the 60's, and unfortunately, it provided him with an historic opportunity by injecting the Frankfort School's cultural Marxism into the baby-boom generation. My Generation! Of course, we did not understand what it really was. As was true from the Institute's beginning, Marcuse and the few other people "in the know" did not advertise that political correctness and multiculturalism were a form of Marxism. But the effect was devastating: a whole generation of Americans, especially the university-educated elite, absorbed cultural Marxism as their own, accepting a poisonous ideology that sought to destroy America's traditional culture and Christian faith. That generation, which runs every elite institution in America, now wages a ceaseless war on all traditional beliefs and institutions. They have largely won that war. Most of America's traditional culture lies in ruins.
Cultural Marxism, under the disguise of multiculturalism, is one of the primary reasons why we equate any truth with racism or hate. To further enforce this, in 1947 Rabbi Fineberg of the American Jewish Committee created "dynamic silence" as a method of closing all access to the public media - and thus the larger culture - for people or organizations deemed to have an unacceptable point of view. The twofold strategy is a combination of techniques (which there are minor adaptations and alterations). One part consists in denying immoderate exposure to the public. The second part involves only reporting on negative or unseemly sides of a thing in order to de-legitimize these things. Where the first one concentrates on silence or very tight restriction, the second part is done in a spiral form; its effect is cumulative. All the press reports on a subject will be negative. As the negative is expressed continuously, the public is conditioned to recoil from them.
This strategy was first developed and aimed at anti-semitics. With Jews "in the leadership of all three major television networks and many movie studios, for the ownership of the nation's largest chain of newspapers, and for considerable percentages of university faculties", this strategy is highly practicable and efficient.

Both are poisonous, destructive ideologies that we must eradicate, forever, in this country. However, a full frontal assault on the various institutions and organizations that defend it would end in our defeat. They are prepared and heavily fortified, now with the full cooperation of the United States government and para-military police forces behind them.
We, are but a small voice, however, hope reigns supreme. We must divorce ourselves from the poison that has undermined our culture and stolen our freedom, our voices and our liberty; as Gramsci laid it out so long ago, to undertake a "long march through the institutions." Our counter-strategy would be a long march to create new institutions defined by America's traditional value system. Patience is the virtue that will eventually liberate us from the tyranny of every Marxist philosophy that now pervades our nation.
