you asked for it to be explained….

  1. And you failed to explain it. All that is a hodgepodge of bollocks posted as fact. There is little evidence or explanation included in it. Just bollocks, followed by more bollocks. Have you any evidence of the role of Marxism in education?

  2. The sinister ” diversity, inclusion ” movement ( wickedness cloaked in nice words ) is a thing of it’s own. I am not at all sure that any of it is part of any marxism.

  3. sorry you feel it’s bollocks. I thought it was a nice simple way to explain it to you, but you believe that which you choose.

  4. //calls “the post-modernists:” neo-Marxist professors who dominate our colleges and universities.//

    Post-modernism has nothing, really nothing, to do with Marxism, or “neo-Marxism”, whatever that is.

  5. Postmodernism largely has its roots in Nietzsche (and so Paterson is right when he identifies them as a gang of nihilists). However Nietzsche wasn’t a Marxist. Nihilism and Marxism are two completely separate groups of thought. And while both were branches of Hegelian thought so was most German philosophy of the 19th and 20th centuries.

  6. There we go Noel. You beat me to the punch today 🙂

  7. the video doesn’t get into the history roots, but it gives a good overview of the problem.

  8. ” I thought it was a nice simple way to explain it to you, but you believe that which you choose.”

    It isn’t a question of belief. You rattled off a conspiracy theory. You were challenged on it and asked to explain it, using facts and evidence. You have so far failed to do that. This post is not facts and evidence. It is conjecture, and not particularly intelligent conjecture at that.

  9. “the video doesn’t get into the history roots, but it gives a good overview of the problem.”

    No it doesn’t because it is easily demolished in about three seconds. They are either postmodern nihilists (which they largely are) or they are Marxists. The two are not the same thing. Patterson’s presenting them as the same thing is either idiocy on his part (which I doubt as he is pretty bright) or deliberate confusion of the two in order to confuse his moronic followers who don’t know the difference.

  10. it’s demolished because you don’t have an open mind you have reached your conclusion before hearing any evidence one way or another.

  11. “it’s demolished because you don’t have an open mind you have reached your conclusion before hearing any evidence one way or another.”

    He doesn’t present any evidence. He makes a statement that is clearly not true. It is nothing about having an open mind. We know where postmodern thought arose out of. It arose out of French nihilists like Lyotard and Derrida who specifically rejected Marx (and all “big” ideologies).

  12. The proof that I am right are the students on America’s campuses…. they spew radical marxism and employ brownshirt tactics as well as soviet style speech control.

  13. “The proof that I am right are the students on America’s campuses…. they spew radical marxism and employ brownshirt tactics as well as soviet style speech control.”

    That isn’t proof. That again is speculation and opinion.

    Have you any evidence? It is a simple yes or no.

  14. Just because they call it Post-Modernism doesn’t mean anything, just like calling it “progressivism” it’s all communism under a different name.

    In the US the commies for the past 100yrs have called themselves anything other than communists.

  15. “Just because they call it Post-Modernism doesn’t mean anything, just like calling it “progressivism” it’s all communism under a different name.”

    Have you any evidence of that?

  16. none that you’ll except you made your mind up before the conversation began.

  17. “none that you’ll except you made your mind up before the conversation began.”

    You haven’t presented any evidence. So how do you know how I will respond to evidence?

  18. the “evidence” that you want is something in black and white that says we’re teaching marx and discouraging the foundations of the country. That document does not exist, but that has been the plan for 50yrs and it succeeded.

  19. //it’s all communism under a different name. //

    Patrick, your problem is that you don’t known what the term Communism means.

    You use is for anything that sounds liberal or anti-Trump or whatever. But the term has a very specific meaning, even if that has been distorted in a century of practice both by people calling themselves communists and their enemies.

    You should read something about it. Go to the real sources, not what the usual fools on the Internet tell you it is. They know as little about it as you do.

  20. “the “evidence” that you want is something in black and white that says we’re teaching marx and discouraging the foundations of the country. That document does not exist, but that has been the plan for 50yrs and it succeeded.”

    If there is a plan you would be able to point to it – in black and white. You have no evidence. All you have is an old, originally antisemitic, conspiracy theory.

  21. noel….. communism is very simple when the government controls everything for the “peoples good” it’s always Tyranny and it’s COMMUNISM.

  22. If there is a plan you would be able to point to it – in black and white. You have no evidence. All you have is an old, originally antisemitic, conspiracy theory.

    If you say so Seamus well it must be right…. never mind the millions of little commies graduating college…….

    so now I’m anti-jewish….. lol

  23. Progressivism is just a newer name given to the same ideology from which Communism and Socialism arose. Progressivism started to take hold in America circa 1920-1930. It promotes the idea of a large, centralized government which assumes responsibility for feeding, housing and caring for people in exchange for the wealth they generate via labor.
    What are the differences among progressivism, socialism …

  24. “If you say so Seamus well it must be right…. never mind the millions of little commies graduating college…….

    so now I’m anti-jewish….. lol”

    Did I say you were? No. What I said was that you are using a conspiracy theory that was originally formulated to target Jews in Nazi Germany. You are literally using antisemitic Nazi propaganda.

    “http://www.quora.com/What-are-the-differences-among-progressivism-socialism-communism-and-liberalism”

    Wow. Tracy Calder said it on Quora. That changes everything.

    Again do you have any evidence? If it is so pervasive and obvious then there should be bags of evidence. Unless you are just making it up or have been fooled by your Nazi propaganda.

  25. Noel….. communism is very simple when the government controls everything for the “peoples good”

    In the words of the immortal Iñigo Montaya, ‘I do not think that word means what you think it means’ Pat.

    Is all private property banned under this Communism that you speak of Pat?

  26. Is all private property banned under this Communism that you speak of Pat?

    slowly but surely

  27. The product coming out of the universities speaks for itself….. these heads full of mush come out believing communism is the way to go that it actually works… the fact that they don’t know they are spewing communism is irrelevant.

  28. The rich in the US aren’t getting poorer, they’re actually getting richer.

  29. “The product coming out of the universities speaks for itself….. these heads full of mush come out believing communism is the way to go that it actually works… the fact that they don’t know they are spewing communism is irrelevant.”

    Show me then. Show me the mass of people who are calling for communism? Show me the products of these universities? Especially considering that I went to university more recently than anyone on this site and I probably ended up coming out of university more right wing than when I started. So clearly the communist indoctrination didn’t take with me.

  30. Slowly but surely

    So it isn’t banned then? You’re proposing the ‘sloppery slope, wait until tomorrow’ ‘theory’?

  31. Great, informative stuff from Prager U, as usual.

    They are heroes for their dedication to deradicalising young minds bent out of shape by left wing so-called teachers.

  32. Bollocks, followed by more bollocks is the shit that universities are putting into the heads of our young people – and at their expense too! However, the same shit has been put into the youth of Hong Kong – it’s called ‘liberal studies’ and the result – riots, instigated by the lunatics of the State Department……

    A Hong Kong activist who has played an active role in the ongoing anti-Beijing protests has raised suspicions after being photographed meeting with a senior official from the US consulate.

    Joshua Wong Chi-fung, the secretary-general of pro-democracy party Demosisto, told the Hong Kong Standard that there was nothing sinister behind his recent meeting with Julie Eadeh, a political unit chief of the US consulate general in Hong Kong. Their rendezvous, which was caught on camera, was quickly seized upon by pro-Beijing media.

    “I even went to Washington several times, so what’s so special about meeting a US consul?” Wong told the Standard.

    Yeah – it was nothing

    This is very very embarrassing. Julie Eadeh, a US diplomat in Hong Kong, was caught meeting HK protest leaders. It would be hard to imagine the US reaction if Chinese diplomat were meeting leaders of Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter or Never Trump protesters.

    ‘Protest leaders’ – their heads full of shit, the same shit that is found in the heads of deranged youngsters throughout the degenerate west.

    When contacted by AFP for comment, a State Department spokesperson said representatives of the US government “meet regularly with a wide cross section of people across Hong Kong and Macau.”

    On Thursday, China’s Foreign Ministry expressed “strong dissatisfaction” over media reports alleging that a senior official at the US consulate had met with a Hong Kong “independence group.”

    Are these deep-staters off their heads? It isn’t Ukraine this time: it’s China

  33. yep you guys are right you know that our college graduates are all coming out praising the nations founders and spouting Friedman…….

    Your naivety about the US, our society, culture and the reality of our streets also extends to our College System.

    You make judgements and pronouncements based on your fantasy of America not on it’s reality or any reality most of the time. The colleges aren’t pushing Marx, removing Guns from Law Abiding people will achieve anything other than Civil War, and you even believe the icing on the cake that cow farts are changing the climate…..

    You live in delusion……
