The decent, law-abiding, family-oriented Christian-based America of Norman Rockwell and the greatest generation is all but gone. If Rockwell were to come back, he would be shocked and dismayed upon discovering that the U.S. Army welcomes Wiccans and even Satanists, the Air Force Academy has built an outdoor 'high place' for earth-based worshippers while Walter Reed Army hospital has banished the Bible and the Obama administration has given the go-ahead for 'gay' marriage, bestiality, sodomy, and lesbianism in the military. Where the America of Rockwell's day was a safe-haven for decent, law-abiding American citizens, today America is lawless, its' borders wide-open and Western ranchers and farmers fear for their safety while wolves, alligators, fish and insects have been elevated in importance over the health and welfare of all Americans.
Easy divorce and abortion has all but killed the traditional family painted by Rockwell around the Thanksgiving table while decency and respect have all but disappeared under a tidal wave of pornography, cursing, and blasphemy.
Where the Rockwell generation esteemed as role models men and women of decency, modesty, valor, strength, integrity, and honor, today's role models are the exact opposite:indecent pimps, prostitutes, liars, thieves, and social parasites.
The America of Rockwell's day has been inverted and transformed into a secular theocracy, a modern-day version of Sodom. How this happened is the subject of Cultural Marxism:
There are two misconceptions held by many Americans. The first is that communism ceased to be a threat when the Soviet Union imploded. The second is that the New Left of the Sixties collapsed and disappeared as well. "The Sixties are dead," wrote columnist George Will ("Slamming the Doors," Newsweek, Mar. 25, 1991)
Because the New Left lacked cohesion it fell apart as a political movement. However, its revolutionaries reorganized themselves into a multitude of single issue groups. Thus we now have for example, radical feminists, black extremists, anti-war â€˜peace' activists, animal rights groups, radical environmentalists, and â€˜gay' rights groups. All of these groups pursue their piece of the radical agenda through a complex network of organizations such as the Gay Straight Lesbian Educators Network (GSLEN), the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), People for the American Way, United for Peace and Justice, Planned Parenthood, Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS), and Code Pink for Peace.
Both communism and the New Left are alive and thriving here in America. They favor code words: tolerance, social justice, economic justice, peace, reproductive rights, sex education and safe sex, safe schools, inclusion, diversity, and sensitivity. All together, this is Cultural Marxism disguised as multiculturalism.
Birth of Multiculturalism
In anticipation of the revolutionary storm that would baptize the world in an inferno of red terror, leading to its rebirth as the promised land of social justice and proletarian equality-Frederich Engels wrote,
"All the...large and small nationalities are destined to perish...in the revolutionary world storm... (A general war will) wipe out all...nations, down to their very names. The next world war will result in the disappearance from the face of the earth not only reactionary classes...but...reactionary peoples." ("The Magyar Struggle," Neue Rheinische Zeitung, Jan. 13, 1849) By the end of WWI, socialists realized that something was amiss, for the world's proletariat had not heeded Marx's call to rise up in opposition to evil capitalism and to embrace communism instead. They wondered what had gone wrong.
Separately, 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 new world order. The West would have to be conquered first.
Gramsci posited that because Christianity had been dominant in the West for over 2000 years, not only was it fused with Western civilization, but it had corrupted the workers class. The West would have to be de-Christianized, said Gramsci, by means of a "long march through the culture." Additionally, a new proletariat must be created. In his "Prison Notebooks," he suggested that the new proletariat be comprised of many criminals, women, and racial minorities.
The new battleground, reasoned Gramsci, must become the culture, starting with the traditional family and completely engulfing churches, schools, media, entertainment, civic organizations, literature, science, and history. All of these things must be radically transformed and the social and cultural order gradually turned upside-down with the new proletariat placed in power at the top.
