“When I see Mexican flags waved at pro-immigration demonstrations, I sometimes feel a flush of patriotic resentment. When I’m forced to use a translator to communicate with the guy fixing my car, I feel a certain frustration.”
The host is arguing that today’s political figures are race hustling and ignoring economic projects and programs.
But isn’t this the macro picture of what happened over the course of the last few years? Cultural Marxism has replaced Economic Marxism?
Instead of telling the history of the world in terms of proletariat versus bourgeoisies (economic class warfare), it is women, gays and darker skinned races against straight white men (cultural class warfare).
From my vantage point you’ve been left behind as a proponent of a philosophy which has a long history of radicalizing extremely quickly and leaving its moderates behind, if not declaring them enemies.
Moderate leftists who think they are victims, for example, economic victims, very quickly find out that the aren’t victim *enough*. People who are bigger victims than you quickly push you aside and claim to possess a superior moral position because they are superior victims.
Anyway. I will avoid an argument. Feel free to tell me why I’m wrong.
My left-leaning friends may not accept hearing this from me. Just as economic Marxists apriori dismissed arguments by people of the wrong economic class (via dialectical materialism), today’s cultural Marxists apriori dismiss arguments of the wrong ethnic/gender class (via all the invisible flavors of racism).
So here is a person from one the “good” classes making the same argument:
This is absurd, but it seems unavoidable when 300 million people are sanctioned to tell each other how to live. Two solutions:
a) Deny people access to political power.
b) Minimize the role of government in our lives.
States rights accomplish both of these things, at least to a limited extent.
“I was at the main hub where Hillary was supposed to give her victory speech. Jesus Christ it was the WORST experience of my life. My mom dragged me along because she wanted to witness history and be there when the first woman president addressed the country. I KID YOU NOT, Every time (and I’m fucking serious i mean EVERY. FUCKING. TIME.) it was announced that another state had voted trump, maybe around 4 women would collapse, or just straight up bodyslam themselves to the ground and begin to either convulse, scream their heads off with tears streaming down their faces as if they’ve just been stabbed, or pretend to faint and lay on the ground for like 20 seconds like an idiot playing dead. I’d even hear screams from women across the crowd yell out “Oh my god, she’s having a heart attack, someone call 911!” meaning that it wasn’t just happening around the area I was standing. There was so much fucking screaming from the women near the end (like emotional screaming, not cheers) that I almost left before it was over. I even remember seeing one white chick screaming so hard that her whole head and eyes were bloodshot red, veins throbbing on her neck and everything. I moved my mother and myself towards the back of the crowd when they were going to announce the final vote because I knew the exits would be clogged up by more retards pretending to be ill or some shit causing the only exits to be blocked and everyone unable to leave. I wasn’t wrong. Luckily I was one of the first ones out. Godamn it, even when we were walking down the hallways to get to the parking lot, there were so many fucking women sitting on the ground against the wall slumped over with people fanning their faces with homemade Hillary Clinton posters, screaming “Give her some air! Move away and give her air!”. The whole thing was fucking wild, like what could you possibly change by acting out like that?” Anonymous /pol/
