Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:10-12
The Frankfurt School proceeded to redefine traditional values and beliefs and as a result values became prejudices. Adorno published these falsehoods in his Marxist bestseller, "The Authoritarian Personality," published in 1950. Adorno created a phony "F-scale" that linked traditional beliefs on sexual morals, relations between men and women and questions touching on the family to be a form of fascism. The end result: political correctness now would often say those who disagree with them are ignorant, radical, or even a bigger lie: "fascist."
Next, Cultural Marxism made another switch from traditional Marxism which contends those who control means of production control the people. Cultural Marxism says groups such as men, women, races, religions, etc., control power or "dominance" over other groups. White males, for example were labeled "oppressors," and many other groups were defined as "victims." Victims were defined as good, oppressors were deemed bad. These conclusions were reached regardless of individual behavior.
Cultural Marxism also drew from the teachings of Nietzsche. Another of their heroes was the Marquis de Sade who was championed for his defiance of traditional values. Nietzsche taught a principle called the "Trans-valuation of all values" which was incorporated in the cultural Marxism teaching. Trans-valuation is defined as follows: “those acts defined as sin traditionally become virtues, and traditionally accepted virtues become sins. Homosexuality is a fine and normal lifestyle ... so they say, but anyone who thinks men and women should have different social roles is an evil "fascist." That is what political correctness now teaches children in public schools all across America. The Frankfurt School wrote about American public education. It said it did not matter if school children learned any skills or any facts. All that mattered was that they graduate from the schools with the right "attitudes" on certain questions.” Teaching politically correct anti traditional Christian values is a primary tenet of cultural Marxism. Their is no room for a creator who gives us the ten commandments in cultural Marxist ideology. That is why I am convinced that if absolute proof of God; or if irrefutable scientific disproof of evolution was presented, modern science which is guided by many atheistic cultural Marxists would never reasonably consider the evidence.
Cultural Marxism concluded they could manipulate radio, film and later television to psychologically condition the public. Their leaders spent years in Hollywood after World War 2 cultivating these industries with their ideology. Hollywood has now become one of cultural Marxism’s most dangerous weapons.
The mainstream media has now been 90% controlled by this mentality. The reporting of the news is now quite often reported with this ideolgy as a guide. Consciously or unconsciously people or stories that fit the ideology are reported in a positive light. Contrary views reflecting traditonal values are reported to be ignorant, negative, extremist or racist viewpoints.
After the fall of Nazi Germany, most of the cultural Marxists were free to return to Frankfurt and rebuild the institute there with the help of the American allies. Eventually, it soon became the primary ideology of the Republic of Germany. It is no wonder our president mesmerized and was so wholeheartedly welcomed in Germany.
One key leader remained behind in America. Herbert Marcuse wrote "Eros and Civilization" which combined the teachings of Marx with Freud which contended that if we "liberated non-procreative Eros through polymorphous perversity, we could create a new paradise where there would be only play and no work.”Eros and Civilization" became one of the main texts of the New Left in the 1960s.” The dawning of the Age of Aquarius had meaning to the Marxists. for myself and most unsuspecting others ... it was just another cool song.
Marcuse also taught that, “a coalition of students, blacks, feminist women and homosexuals – the core of the student rebellion of the 1960s, and the sacred "victims groups" of political correctness today would liberate America. Marcuse redefined the word, "tolerance," and gave it a new meaning. “He called it "liberating tolerance" as tolerance for all ideas and movements coming from the left, and intolerance for all ideas and movements coming from the right. When you hear the cultural Marxists today call for "tolerance," they mean Marcuse's "liberating tolerance" just as when they call for "diversity," they mean uniformity of belief in their ideology.” That is also why the left does not believe that Christians or whites can be subjected to reverse discrimination. The Obama administration gave us a glimpse of this logic recently when they dismissed a conviction against Black Panthers with clubs who were intimidating whites at the entrance to a US polling place. It has reported that the guideline came down that blacks discriminating or depriving rights of whites were not to be prosecuted.
Marcuse capitalized on the student rebellion of the 1960s, in response to the Viet Nam war. He is the father of cultural Marxism to the baby boom generation, even though most of us didn’t know it. It was deceptively hidden that political correctness and multi-culturalism were evil forms of Marxism. The end result is horrible. “A whole generation of Americans, especially the university-educated elite, absorbed cultural Marxism as their own, accepting a poisonous ideology that sought to destroy America's traditional culture and Christian heritage and faith. That generation, which runs every elite institution in America, now wages a ceaseless war on all traditional beliefs and institutions. They have largely won that war. Most of America's traditional culture lies in ruins.”
The Tea Party Movement is not just a response to government out of control. It is also a response to the loss of our culture, our values, our traditions, and our ways of life. All of a sudden, they are telling us that our American history is not the way things actually were, and that is a obviously a lie. They tell us that saying Merry Christmas is offensive to some and as a result insensitive and intolerant to atheists and non-Christian religions. At the same time they have promoted that freedom of religion means all religions are equal and relevant. The Muslim religion suddenly is valuable to this group, not because they agree with Islam but because it is anti-Christianity. The gay lifestyle is being forced down America’s throat, and those of us who don’t agree are called homophobes. And the assaults go on and on. All religions are fantasy to them, and as a result foolishness. In that context, all religions are as valuable as the next irregardless of what the religions teach. Except for Biblical Christianity of course which is the enemy of cultural Marxism and as a result to be discredited at every opportunity.
The biggest challenge is that cultural Marxism has converted a large percentage of our children through our educational system. We have seen how difficult it is to combat the hold false science teaching has on the evolution debate. Evolutionary doctrine is only one front line in the war on traditional values. Unfortunately Christians have allowed this to happen. We have given the training of our children over to atheist Marxists, and they have to a large degree succeeded. If they can convince our children there is no creator ... it is then a logical next step that there is no true God and the Bible is just another man created religion easily rejected when it does not agree with the driving forces of lust and pride.
What can we do? There is a large likelihood many of you who are reading this have been educated with these principles and accepted many of them. Many of you have been conflicted. You may have even accepted some of the teachings on evolution, homosexuality, radical environmentalism as well as a number of other ideas that are contrary to God’s word, and what we know to be true. Just like Bill O’Reilly in my Noah’s Ark post, this only makes you look hypocritical and foolish when you take positions contrary to Biblical teachings.
There is no peace and joy with a compromised belief system. You need to test everything you hear in the world against the only teaching you can stand on for eternity, and these beliefs are not often taught in the universities. Then we need to share the differences between atheistic cultural Marxism and traditional Christian values with everyone we know. We all need to understand that the words political correctness and tolerance have been redefined by cultural Marxists and that good people as well as bad have been deceived and that their sincerity doesn't change this fact: it is the opposite of God’s truth. We must stand against it.
Can we ever get back to the way things were for me in the fifties? Yes … one person at a time, and one family at a time is the only way, and clearly it can be much better but it will take a long time. The world can and probably will continue along its foolish path, but we can have peace and joy and rest knowing that our Heavenly Father will never desert us. He will always rescue us. He will always light the pathway to victory.
The good news is that we know the end of the story. Jesus Christ and His followers will win and spend eternity together in the heavenlies. In the meantime, what can we do? Home school our children, or if that doesn’t work for you, Christian school was our decision. We need to pass the facts along to our friends, neighbors and relatives so that they can know the truth. Some will think we are nuts. But isn’t that why God gave us the reality of Noah, so that we could follow his courage and his faith. We must stand against any moves to steal our values, our beliefs, and our freedoms. We must hold strong on all issues of state’s rights and our constitution. This is a cultural war and I am concerned that my generation will just die off, and we will lose through attrition. Any policy that throws us under the control of the government works against our personal freedoms. Unfortunately, this is not a war that will be won quickly. Our grandchildren will be fighting this battle as adults. Our call is to educate them with the truth.
Dueteronomy 6:1-9 “Now this is the commandment, the statutes and the judgments which the LORD your God has commanded me to teach you, that you might do them in the land where you are going over to possess it, so that you and your son and your grandson might fear the LORD your God, to keep all His statutes and His commandments which I command you, all the days of your life, and that your days may be prolonged. “O Israel, you should listen and be careful to do it, that it may be well with you and that you may multiply greatly, just as the LORD, the God of your fathers, has promised you, in a land flowing with milk and honey. “Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one! “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. “These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. “You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. “You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. “You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

often contradict the wisdom of the world. Since we have been programmed by the world ... we have come to accept these worldly ideas as truth ... but when we consider God’s perspective ... we come to understand ... "the Lord's ways are not our ways"
