Political correctness is perpetuating America’s demise

There is an all-pervading problem going unnoticed by many in the United States.  Although wasteful spending, big government policies, and corruption have exhausted and equally crippled our economy, this problem poses a greater threat to our livelihood. That problem is political correctness.

A recent Rasmussen Report poll revealed that 79 percent of Americans think political correctness is problematic in America.

What is political correctness, and who is responsible for it?

It is important to note that political correctness derives from Cultural Marxism. This connection is expounded below:

If we look at it analytically, if we look at it historically, we quickly find out exactly what it is. Political Correctness is cultural Marxism. It is Marxism translated from economic into cultural terms. It is an effort that goes back not to the 1960s and the hippies and the peace movement, but back to World War I.

Bill Land of Accuracy in Academia attributes Cultural Marxism to the Frankfurt School in Germany.

In 1923, the Frankfurt School—best known as the Institute for Social Research—was established with the task of translating Marxist economic theory into Marxism cultural theory. When Nazis took control in Germany, members of the Frankfurt School relocated to the United States in 1933 and found their way into American universities.

Their work also gave rise to Critical Theory, which is “essentially destructive criticism of the main elements of Western culture, including Christianity, capitalism, authority, the family, patriarchy, hierarchy, morality, tradition, sexual restraint, loyalty, patriotism, nationalism, heredity, ethnocentrism, convention and conservatism.”

Additionally, one prominent Frankfurt School member—Herbert Marcuse—helped to champion Critical Theory so as to cripple free speech. Bill Lind also wrote, “Marcuse defines “liberating tolerance” as intolerance for anything coming from the Right and tolerance for anything coming from the Left.”

From these findings, it is important to note how political correctness pervades everyday life.
