For future references: “Cultural Marxism” isn’t much of a conspiracy theory. It’s not as if the Frankfurt school can’t be verified to exist: it can.
-It is not in dispute who started the Frankfurt school:
-It is not in dispute who the Frankfurt school’s most prominent academics were.
-It is not in dispute what books were produced and spread by these academics.
Traditional and Critical Theory
Reason and Revolution
The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction
Eclipse of Reason
Escape from Freedom
Eros and Civilization
The Structural Transformation of the Public Sphere
The Theory of Communicative Action
Dialectic of Enlightenment
Ordinarily the term “conspiracy theory” refers to something you cannot prove and have no verifiable evidence of. In the case of Cultural Marxism: the facts of the issue are not disputed.
Leftist’s would like to exclaim that “cultural marxism” is a conspiracy theory: but actually it’s a pejorative, which is accurate, and leftists don’t like it. If you examine, for yourself – I invite you to, to examine SJW and Feminist ideologues, the peoplw ho write “Feminist theory” – you’ll find the same term come up quite a bit. “Critical Theory”, which was created by Max Horkheimer, one of the previous directors of the Institute for Social Research. Later added to by other academics of the Frankfurt school.
All of these culture warriors follow the doctrines and baseline ideology of the academics of a marxist think tank originally named “Institute for Social Research” which later became known as the “Frankfurt School” when they left germany and settled down in Colombia University. Critical theory, which is the doctrinal ideological background of the social justice warriors and culture warriors today, was quite literally created by marxist academics.
This is where you get the Feminist / SJW world view of society being one giant inter-sectional stack of varying forms of oppression.
When you can pick out a Feminist academic and go to her own course structure, look at her class description and point to the screen “critical theory” – it’s not a “conspiracy theory”. When that feminists own description of her course description specifically stipulates that she teaches a marxist oppression model conceptualization of society: it’s not a “conspiracy theory.” the act of referring to “cultural marxism” is simply an exorcise in asserting “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.”
Again: I invite you to do your own research. yet, just as an experiment… just for funzies….
Let’s look at the top 10 universities.
Ok, #1 is Princeton…. let’s look at Princeton.
Now looking at “Gender and Sexuality Studies“, we see that “Introduction to Gender and Sexuality Studies”, “Transgender Theory”, “Queer Theory”, and “Contemporary Theories of Gender and Sexuality” are all taught by Professor Gayle Salamon…
And also on Princeton’s official website….
“Introduction to Critical Theory” is also taught by…. surprise… Professor Gayle Salamon…
Now…. when I can simply point to real life – verifiable – objective – reality: and point out “Critical Theory” was created by Marxist theorist Max Horkheimer who was director of the Institute for Social Research, and then I can point out that the same professor at the US’s #1 top ranked university, not only teaches “Introduction to Critical Theory” BUT ALSO teaches “Introduction to Gender and Sexuality Studies”, “Transgender Theory”, “Queer Theory”, and “Contemporary Theories of Gender and Sexuality”….
Is this a conspiracy theory: or an unavoidable observation to anyone willing to look?
That’s why leftists like to claim “Cultural Marxism” is a conspiracy theory, they want to discredit the concept in order that people do not bother to look: because the evidence is so easily found if one does.
I just proved “Cultural Marxism” is the driving force behind SJW ideology by simply picking a university, looking at the feminist professor who teaches their gender studies class and pointing out that she also teaches critical theory, which was created and developed by academics of the Frankfurt school.
That’s how easy it is to find the necessary evidence. I simply googled “top 10 universities”
Saw that the #1 ranked school was Princeton, looked there, did a google search for “critical theory“.
Bob’s your uncle: looky looky looky – the same professor who teaches introduction to Princeton’s gender studies program, also teaches introduction to critical theory.
[sarcasm mode activate] Yeah that was horribly difficult. It took a lot out of me, I think I had to type a whole 100 individual letters, click my mouse maybe 5 times. truly an exhaustive investigation. I feel winded now, probably dehydrated too, maybe I should grab a gatorade. [sarcasm mode deactivate]
Yep… “pay no attention to the marxist behind the curtain.”
