"Cultural Marxism" explained in helpful infographic (that somehow manages to avoid using "Le Happy Merchant") With BONUS CRAP PICS

It's all so obvious now!
It’s all so obvious now! (Click to enlarge.)

I‘m sorry, did I say “helpful?” I meant “so convoluted that the diagram-maker eventually gave up drawing lines between boxes because even he couldn’t figure out how all these things allegedly relate to each other.”

I should note that in addition to being a mess, this diagram is also complete bullshit, and that “Cultural Marxism” only exists in the fevered imaginations of neo-Nazis, conspiracy theorists, #Gamergaters and Bernard Chapin? For an actual history of “Cultural Marxism” as a boogeyman of the far right, see here. For more lovely “Cultural Marxism” infographics and memes, several of which do include “Le Happy Merchant,” see my earlier post on the subject.

Oh, ok. Here (after the jump) is a crapload of BONUS images I found by searching for “cultural marxism,” this time on Twitter.  [CONTENT WARNING: All the bigotries, actual pro-Hitler Tweets, cartoon semi-nudity.]

Note: This last image, as you’ve probably gathered, is not an actual SPLC poster. A Google image search shows that pretty much the only people who’ve posted it online have been right-wing asshats. For example, this guy, who regularly posts images even worse than the ones I’ve got here.

H/T — @jason_a_w on Twitter, for posting the convoluted  diagram, sent to him by someone who thought it actually made sense, and maistrechat, for linking to Jason’s Tweet in the comments here.

Re: The “All cultures are equal” one (I’m not reposting that):

I suppose if I made a picture that compared, say, ancient Egypt to a trailer park, they’d point out that I was unfairly and nonsensically comparing poor people to obscenely wealthy people… And my point would fly over their head, out the atmosphere and off to a planet without racists…

Was the chart made by Hans Herman Hoppe? The line about “Don’t trust empiric evidence” may be a direct quote from him which tells me he either helped make it or a fan of him in particular made it.

I found the book “World Revolution: a Plot Against Civilization” (N.H. Webster, 1921) at a library once. It included basically the same diagram. It was no more plausible in 1921 than it is now.

I don’t find the diagram convoluted at all. There are a lot of boxes, but not so many lines, with paths that are easy to follow. How is your argument different than that of a creationist looking at this diagram and saying “ha ha look at this mess, that’s not helpful at all, wow evolutionists are so ridiculous”?

No, what’s really interesting in this diagram is how utterly wrong it is. Pretty much all non-trivial links are dishonest bullshit, tired debunked clichés, or gaslighting.

As for the tweets, wow. The discussion in this thread is enlightening. The white supremacist sounds like a broken record.

So as it turns out feminists, gays, weed smokers and new atheists are all controlled by… the jews? (Obviously, who else (?)).

This
1) is hilarious
2) is false, but props to the Jewish people for earning the reputation of being progressive
3) has a lot of popcorn potential since there are many misogynists who are also new-atheists themselves. Also, by what kind of Jewish logic do you have two groups you control argue with each other?

The green-on-black version you link is the one neoreactionary Mike Anissimov posted to More Right. It’s an edited version of the original, which is from 4chan /pol/, and includes a rant explicitly about Jews at the top:

One person on the RW FB group noted that it’s like a badly-structured class diagram in object-oriented programming. You wouldn’t think they were Bay Area technolibertarians or anything, would you.

Those comparisons of the most elaborate of European cultural artifacts juxtaposed with much much simpler non-European cultural artifacts always piss me the hell off. If you know anything at all about archaeology, you know that cultures all around the world constructed huge palaces and cities and public works of art and massive feats of engineering. Ever hear of the Egyptians? The Incas? The original nations of sub-Saharan Africa? Many of these accomplishments were then destroyed and swept under the rug…by white “explorers” and colonialists. Because they had no respect for cultures that were not their own. The racism came first, based in nothing but smugness and intolerance, and murdering bandits acting on their racism committed gross atrocities, the effects of which were then used to justify the racism.

Re: Star Trek one, is the fool who created it aware that both Shatner and Nimoy are Jewish? Probably not. I’m guessing this person never saw the famous Nazi planet episode, “Patterns of Force.” Or that, by and large, Star Trek’s entire philosophy is essentially one of multiculturalism, equality and other progressive values?

I guess I’m not racist enough to understand the point of the picture of the school kids proclaiming multiculturalism as genocide. Are they trying to say that a random grouping of British children that only includes some caucasians is genocide? I am sitting here puzzling over what they could possibly mean.

And they want to bang on about “Cultural Marxism”. I doubt they know what the word “culture” means, much less “Marxism”.

The best meme is the Trek one, because you’ve just gone “HITLER WAS RIGHT” with two characters who beat up Nazis in one of their episodes and live on a mixed-ethnicity, female-officer ship with a Russian ensign.

And one of them is mixed race.

In addition to the Star Trek oopsie, I’d like to point out that the Ideal Aryan in the “race is not a social construct (but totally a biological hierarchy with whites on top*)” pic is actor Luke Macfarlane who is openly gay. With their shmorgishborg of bigotries, probably not what they were going for.

*I think this is what they’re trying to say.

Karalora

I don’t see how side-by-side photos of two men who are both pale-skinned but have few other facial features in common are supposed to prove that race is not a social construct. If anything, it serves as a very good demonstration of how arbitrary the boundaries of “race” really are.

As it’s been pointed out, I’m pretty sure that if there was such a thing as a “culturally Marxist” society, you know with total multiculturalism, “political correctness”, and all the other progressive ideas the ‘neo-reactionaries’ loathe it might look a little like ‘Star Trek’. Not to mention Nimoy and Shatner are both Jewish…

With all that being said, who the PHUCK decided to make a meme of Spock and Kirk holding a sign that says ” Adolf Hitler was Right”?!?! I mean, that means there’s at least one Neo-Nazi fan of Star Trek who likes to blend his passions. I just figured all Nazi nerds just liked the ‘Gor’ series and heavy metal…

That’s like if there exists a meme where Hitler’s holding a sign that says “‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ is better than ‘Star Trek: The Original Series'”.

Don’t forget that these are the sort of people who buy gold from Glenn Beck in the name of Ron Paul because the communists want to abolish money! Secret government straw person bank accounts!

Yeah, I thought of that too. “Our houses are bigger and prettier, and therefore better!” Classism at it’s worst, methinks.

On top of that, someone else made a good point that most of the wonderful buildings that existed in Africa and in other countries were destroyed by white people colonizing the place.

So, yeah. Those guys can fuck off.

Women usually go topless at protests that are against the sexualization of women’s breasts even when inappropriate. (breast feeding, for example, shouldn’t be seen as sexual or inappropriate.) Nipples are something that everyone has, so it’s weird that women aren’t allowed to show them even as men are frequently casually topless. To bring attention to this issue, some women stage topless protests. So it is a thing that happens, but usually at protests that are specific to that cause. Not at, say, an Occupy Wall Street or Ferguson protest.

@Ellie: It’s pure misdirection. They like to omit the fact the “liberty” they love so much is largely economic, which is generally something that only benefits corporations as it removes any limits imposed on them for one reason or another (including environmental regulation that might protect a town from, y’know, having a poisoned water supply due to waste being dumped in it). They’ll bring up legalization of marijuana or gay rights as something they support but, in reality, could give less of a shit about either. They’re often the same group of people who think “state’s rights” should precede such laws being ratified nationally – many of which would (some already do) severely punish possession of weed and make any act of homosexuality illegal.

If they were honest, they’d just call themselves “Corporatists.”

There’s the Big L libertarians that align with the Ron Paul mouth piece and official Libertarian Party(Ron Paul runs as a Republican, but his talking points are libertarian). They are authoritarian and racist but try to do everything to hide it. They have a couple of think tanks working on sleazy fronts for their propaganda. Think of the worst, corrupt Republican politician. These people will make him/her look like Mother Theresa. At their core Big L libertarians and those that support them knowing what they are, are opportunists. If they can get away with anything, it’s okay. That’s what they mean by “liberty”.

Small l libertarians, also lefty libertarians, usually come from populist working class roots and have a cultural aversion to aligning themselves with the traditional left(Labor /Democrats). They’re socially liberal, fiscally conservative, or rather, cautious. They’re very frustrated with what they see as the traditional left dragging it heels or making compromises.

The first group ruthlessly exploits and manipulates the second group. In 2008, many lefty libertarians bailed from membership after Ron Paul’s racist newsletters –which they had never heard of—were brought to people’s attention. But it was too late. They’d already helped the party get national recognition.

IMHO the Official Libertarian Party is a front for reactionary racists who are too cowardly to admit their real goals. It would be great if it was abolished, but I don’t think that’s feasible now.

What a bunch of bullshit in that diagram. Some other points have already been mentioned, but as a philosophical anarchist, I feel it necessary to point out one particular misstep: Abolishing the traditional concept of property in the way we understand it would not lead to a welfare state, since a welfare state still pretty much runs on the traditional concept of property. The people who are on top now are not the ones who worked hardest to get there, but those who started out with the most opportunities and privileges, so taxing them more is not “unfair”, but an acknowledgement of the disproportionate share they’ve received from society’s common efforts.

It’s like some people can’t imagine a world where people work together for the common good, instead of pointlessly gathering wealth to gain an upper hand in a constant, merciless struggle against other people who want to destroy you and steal your stuff. Thinking like a capitalist must, by its very definition, lead to a very miserable, lonely existence.

@Ellie:

As everyone who loves using “freedom” as a buzzword to rally people to their cause, glibberglobbertarians are for freedom for people as much like them as possible (white, straight, neurotypical, economically privileged, etc.), but not to those pesky non-humans (everyone else), who will apparently just randomly turn into criminals, murderers and rapists if “granted” freedom. Best just to hold them under our thumb. Privilege makes one pretty fucking near-sighted. And often hypocritical.

Oh, and as someone who loves comics as a medium, I need to ask about the one meme: Why the hell are Burns and Smithers speaking in thought balloons?
