Enemies of the Republic, Part 2-The Multi Cultural Left

In this second of my three part series, Enemies of The Republic, we will examine the Multi Cultural Left. This is a dangerous, hateful, racist movement aimed at tearing down all of the pillars of the American Revolution and the natural rights philosophy. This group, which came of age in the 1960' and 70's is made of Marxists, anarchists, and other nihilistic philosophies which aim at nothing less than total destruction of the intellectual foundations of America and the men who professed them from 1776 to this day. This fifth column is also infused with the philosophy of skepticism, and post-modernism, both which aim at relativism and propagate the idea that there are no truths, not even scientific ones, and that all modern science is based on a "Euro-Centric" order.

From the 1960's to our present day the multi cultural left has been waging relentless war against "Eurocentric" culture, especially any history concerning the Founding Fathers. Usually they are attacked in an ad hominem fashion as "dead white males", "rich white men", "capitalists", etc. These anti-intellectual labels are used to lure unwary young people and others in college into despising their own history and country. A primary target is the author of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson. He, of course is labeled a "hypocrite", "racist", "rapist", "slaveholder", etc. He is hated for two primary reasons: one, because he is a white male, and secondly and most importantly his political philosophy of natural rights and human liberty. The ad hominem attacks are used to discredit Jefferson, and the other Founders as human beings, thereby discrediting their philosophy also. They are held to impossibly high standards, and judged retroactively by modern day standards.

One example is slavery. Jefferson, Madison, Washington, etc are excoriated for owning slaves. It is said they should have just "freed" them into their society, regardless of the potential consequences. Forget the fact that in Virginia and other southern states most, if not all whites, would never have embraced nor accepted a "multicultural" society. In the late 18th century the only multicultural socities were held together by force, ie: Russia, Turkey, Latin America, etc. Immediate emancipation of freed slaves would more than likely precipitated a race war and would have totally destroyed the real gains of the American Revolution. Progressive change takes time, and slavery was on it's way to extermination in the western world. The Enlightenment philosophy along with the new market style economies emerging were dissolving old institutions like slavery and feudalism. This is not enough for the multiculturalists.

Next the multiculturalists and post modernists take aim at the Enlightenment of the 18th century. The Enlightenment brought the modern world into being intellectually while the Industrial Revolution performed the same task with economics. Post modernists will tell you there are no real truths, that no one culture is superior to any other. It embraces irrationalism to point of rejecting modern science. One example is relating that an African witch doctor's attempt at curing disease is as valid as modern medical science. Another is that native peoples are always superior to Europeans because they are "one with nature"and more "spiritual" . Notice the race prejudice against Europeans; yet most multi culturalists claim they are "tolerant". Another example is the excoriation of the Spanish conquest of the Americans as "genocide" and a "war of extermination". Ignored is the brutality of the Inca and Aztec Empires. These empires enslaved other Indian tribes, surpressed their cultures, and made human sacrifices to their gods by cutting out the hearts of their victims.
This is not an attempt to justify the brutality of the Spanish, but simply to point out the hypocrisy of the multiculturalists.

The multiculturalists and post-modernists are not content with brainwashing young people in college, but with fervor of a religious fanatic, wish to pass laws to annhilate any opposition to their views. This is exemplified by campus speech codes, "political correctness", hate crime legislation, affirmative action, racial quotas, laws aimed at "hate speech". These are all ideals taken from Stalinist and Marxist- Leninist police states. It is also highly reminiscent of the Spanish Inquisition, the Salem Witch trials, other anti- intellectual movements throughout history. These laws and ideas are usually only applied to their focal point of hate, white males. Just like the Jews in Nazi Germany, the "rich" in the Soviet Union and other communist states, or secular humanists, homosexuals or atheists to the Christian Right, there must be someone to blame for all of society's ills and be a rallying point for hate. Once they have whipped up enough hatred, they can move to implement their evil and despotic vision for the United States. Let's examine life in a Multi Cultural dictatorship, or "People's republic as the communists called it. Here are some laws they would put into place:

Abolition of free speech
Abolition of private property
Supression of religion
massive forced affirmative action
coerced racial quotas
a revised American History ( imputing criminality to everything done by the Founders and Europeans in general)
Second class citizenship for whites, especially males
abolition of all firearms

What a terrifying state the US would become. Notice that it would not be very different from the Christian Right tyranny, just without the religion. Both would annhilate our present democratic republic. Let's now see how the multi culturalists infiltration of academia has succeeded in undermining the American people's faith in the founding principles of the American Revolution.

The American Revolution was clearly the most radical revolution to ever succeed. The colonies went from a centralized monarchy to a republic, and began to implement classical liberal reforms as the world had not seen before.
Most established churches were disestablished within the first 15 years, manhood sufferage expanded, and democratic republics established in each of the 13 new states. Further, a written Bill of Rights was developed protecting the civil liberties and natural rights of the new American citizenry. Freedom of religion, speech, press, freedom against abitrary arrests and unreasonable searches and seizures, trial by jury, and the right to counsel and against self incrimination were implemented. It was truly a radical revolution against powerful centralized government and for human liberty. None of this is good enough for the multiculturalists. They see everything as a class struggle in the true Marxist sense. Civil liberties are ridiculed, the rights of individuals are cast aside for collective rights and the Founders are portrayed in the classic, but erroneous Marxist sense, as rich white aristocrats oppressing the proletariat.

A cynical view of American History is then installed in schools downgrading the acheivments of the Founders, calling them racists, and propagating the view that the American Revolution was a "conservative" movement, a ridiculous notion, indeed! I guess to the Marxists and multiculturalists to have a successful revolution you must be a person of color, live in the third world, and slaughter millions of your countrymen as Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot did. I guess that mass Marxist genocide is considered progress and enlightenment.
Stalin murdered 60 to 80 million of his own people, Mao roughly 40 million, and Pol Pot 4 million, almost exterminating his entire country. True radicalism is freeing people from the shackles of tyranny, not committing genocide against them. In contrast the American Revolution was the first true peoples war, a war of true national liberation.

Noam Chomsky, Cornell West, Jesse Jackson, and other post modernists and multiculturalists save all of their hatred for the United States. Chomsky thinks that the US government is worse than the old Soviets or communist Chinese. Now the US government has done, and continues to do horrible things around the world, but the worse then the USSR? 60 to 80 million people starved, murdered, placed in slave labor camps, a complete totalitarian society without a semblence of liberty. The US is worse than that? Or China ? Mao, the murderer of 40 million people,who intentionally starved, forced slave labor, theft of private property? The US is worse than that? I don't think so. Cornell West, a Harvard University Professor, absolutely despises the ideals of our Founders. On several occasions he has ridiculed the natrual rights theory and engaged in the ad hominem strategy against Jefferson, declaring him a "racist" and not worthy of emulation. West also rails against "Eurocentrism", a phony post modernist creation out of whole cloth. It, of course, is a typical strawman arguement. If it is European descended it must be "evil".

Another post modernist is the Irish born, socialist lover of Edmund Burke, Conor Cruise O' Brien. In 1997 he wrote a book called "A Long Affair, Thomas Jefferson and the French Revolution". In it he declares Jefferson as "unworthy" of our admiration. He also calls for him to be "removed" from our "pantheon of heroes" "piece by piece". The reason behind this is that Jefferson was a "racist" and a believer in the ideals of the French Revolution "high on the wild gas of liberty". He compares Jefferson to Pol Pot for supporting the bloody stages of the Revolution and calls him "father to the modern militia movement" and right wing exteremism. Of course this is to be expected from a man who admires Marxian theory. All counter philosophies must be crushed, even if you must lie.
It is also typical of an admirer of Edmund Burke, a reactionary conservative, who worshipped at the alter of monarchy, aristocracy, and a strong established church. You might say that this is a strange combination of philosophies, but not really. Both Marxist and Burkean philosophy exault the state over all. Individuals are irrelevant to the Burkean and Marxist alike. Rights are not natural, but granted by rulers who are to be placed in splendor, idleness and awe. People are to know their place whether you are a serf or proletarian.
The elite, Marxist or monarchial shall rule you. They will live in opulence, and you will suffer in penury. The Marxist is nothing but a Burkean monarchist wrapped up in new clothes. The aristocracy that Burke admired is still there, just acting like supporters of the people, while all the while keeping them in abject slavery. In this view, you as a human being exist at the whim of your rulers who grant you rights by their own good graces. Tradition, order, hierarchy, and obedience are demanded by the Burkean and Marxist. Where Burke uses religion to keep the masses in line, the Marxist uses a religious devotion to Communist Party dogma and leaders, all in for the same reason as Burke: control of the people to their own ends.

As you can see multiculturalists and other left wing philosophies are really nihlistic in nature. Hatred of anything European, Enlightenment oriented and infused with an unhealthy skepticism and relativism. Marxism is really a philosophy of the Old World. It is very similar to the Hobbsian ideal of a strong government to rule men because they are depraved. It mirrors the Calvinistic philosophy of original sin by maintaining that men are depraved, evil, oppressive, and in need of the Marxist/ Left leadership to guide them to freedom. A "dictatorship of the proliatariat" as Marx called it. Again, witness the idea that men need a dictator to acheive happiness and the goal of freedom.
Of course a standing military is needed to bring this "freedom" to the people along with one party rule, no free elections, abolition of civil liberties, and slavery to the state. The Divine Right of Kings is then replaced with the divine edicts of "the Party". This is not the philosophy of our Founders. Thomas Jefferson rejected the old European theories of government. He felt the philosophies of Hobbes, Sir Robert Filmer, Blackstone, and Burke were not suited for the people of American Republic. Instead the ideas of Locke, Sidney, Paine, Benjamin Franklin and others would be the light which we would guide ourselves to self government.

The American Left has been at war with the ideals of individual liberty, self government and enlightenment since at least the 1960's. They hide their hatred for America and everything American under the guise of fighting fascism. They proclaim to be the paragons of "tolerance" and "diversity" but instead are only concealing their bigotry and prejudice against the ideals of the American Revolution. In the name of tolerance they continually spew forth racial hatred against people of European descent. Whites are always portrayed as priveleged, bigoted oppressors while people of color are portrayed as benevolent, kind, unprejudiced, and enlightened. One Harvard professor named Noel Ingiatev has a website calling for the extermination of the white race. He has called whites a "cancer" on the world and advocates not only cultural, but ethnic annhilation of European descended peoples. Is this "tolerance"? It sounds like the ideals of Adolf Hitler or Pol Pot. Less violent, but hateful policies are the assault on private property through tyrannical environmental laws. These laws are used as a pretext to confiscate private property and to enlarge the power of the state over the people.

At one time the American left was a vibrant, progressive movement for true change. It once consisted of Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, Samuel Adams,
Benjamin Franklin and other revolutionaries. Sadly, the American left has since embraced the old European theories of government in the form of cultural and economic Marxism. Marxism is only the old European theory of centralized government, and feudal slavery wrapped up in revolutionary rhetoric. Very little , if any of it's philosophy is revolutionary. Instead it embraces the reactionary ideals of strong government, an ignorant and enslaved populace, and an elite ruling the masses.

Along with their counterparts on the Right, the Left is engaged in the systematic demolition of the American Republic and Jeffersonian Democracy. As each brace, each piece of the Republic's foundation rots, crumbles and falls, the Empire silently grows. One day the Republic will be no more. When that happens the United States, as the last bastion of relative freedom and liberty will be gone, and the globe will then spiral into an abyss of tyranny and a new dark age. The American Left are certainly doing their part to hasten that day on all of us.
