Islam by a Thousand Cuts
Posted by Edward Cline at 11:07 PM
Lingchi língchí; ling-ch'ih,
alternately transliterated ling chi or leng t'che), translated
variously as death by a thousand cuts,
(shā qiān dāo/qiāndāo wànguǎ), the slow process, the lingering
death, or slow slicing,
was a form of torture and execution used in China from roughly AD 900
until it was banned in 1905. It was also used in Vietnam In this form of execution; a knife was used to
methodically remove portions of the body over an extended period of time,
eventually resulting in death.
in the context of this column, means Islam. Islam is a death worshipping cult.
Death is the end of Islam for anyone who encounters it, Muslim or non-Muslim.
One exists and lives for the sole purpose of dying to meet Allah in Paradise.
Allah owns your life and it is your duty to obey his every command and whim,
even if it means….death.

to America!” is the familiar chant of Muslim demonstrators, from New York City
to London to Berlin and Cologne, from Cairo to Gaza to Damascus, from Kuala
Lumpur to Sydney and Kabul. Death is what is intended by the Muslim
Brotherhood. It states that quite explicitly in the 1991 Explanatory
Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal of the Brotherhood in North
America. Here is what it says:
In order for Islam and its Movement to
become "a part of the homeland" in which it lives, "stable"
in its land, "rooted" in the spirits and minds of its people,
"enabled" in the live [sic] of its society and has firmly-established
"organizations" on which the Islamic structure is built and with
which the testimony of civilization is achieved, the Movement must plan and
struggle to obtain "the keys" and the tools of this process in carry
[sic] out this grand mission as a "Civilization Jihadist"
responsibility which lies on the shoulders of Muslims and – on top of them –
the Muslim Brotherhood in this country.
The process of settlement is a
"Civilization-Jihadist Process" with all the word means. The Ikhwan
must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in
eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and
"sabotaging" its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the
believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over
all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this
challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim's
destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until
the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those
who chose to slack. But, would the slackers and the Mujahedeen be equal.
is Islam “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within”? By
working every little gambit to dissolve Western institutions, principles,
traditions, and norms, and replace them with Islamic ones, first as “co-equals,”
and eventually as the dominant ones
applying a thousand little, barely noticed and hardly earth-shattering
concessions by the West to Islamic demands for “respect” or the enforcement of
Islamic religious observation or deference to Muslim sensibilities and
prejudices, the Brotherhood agenda is on schedule. There will always be the
spectacular, headline-grabbing massacres to remind us that Islam declared war
on the West long, long ago and that the bombings and beheadings and stabbings
are not forgotten as the end-all of life for infidels and those who do not
submit to Islam. Islam means, after
isn’t those which are rotting the West “from within.” The West is definably “miserable”
because it will not stand up for itself, will not take the steps necessary to
preserve its existence as a life-loving as opposed to a death-worshipping political
system. Whose hapless “hands” are aiding and abetting the incremental assaults?
They are many and legion. CAIR simply advises the EEOC of a case rich in

start with the Equal Employment and Opportunity Commission (EEOC), which works hand in glove with the
Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)
to ensure that employers conform to Muslim expectations and prejudices, and
also inures American employers to Islamic religious dress “codes.” The EEOC
will agree with CAIR that a Muslim has been “discriminated” against and
penalized (either fired or not hired) because of his “religion.” Case in point:

for employees by wearing her hijab.
The Muslim teen worker who scored a legal victory in
an anti-discrimination suit against Abercrombie & Fitch, which cited its
dress code in insisting she not wear a hijab to work, says the retailer’s policy
is “very unfair.”
A federal judge issued the ruling last week that Abercrombie & Fitch discriminated against Hani
Khan, 18, when she was fired from its Hollister store in San Mateo, Calif., in
2010 because she refused to remove her head scarf on the job…..
The U.S. Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission filed a lawsuit on Khan's behalf in 2011. A trial on the
company's liability and punitive damages is scheduled for Sept. 30.

favor of the Muslim and against Abercrombie & Fitch. The Guardian
The US supreme court on
Monday ruled in favor of Samantha Elauf, a Muslim woman who was denied a job at
an Abercrombie & Fitch clothing store in Oklahoma because she wore a
headscarf for religious reasons.
The justices decided the case, which united Christian,
Muslim and Jewish and other religious organizations, with an 8-1 vote, ruling
in favor of the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), which
sued the company on behalf of Elauf.

affirming that employers may not make an applicant’s religious practice a

comes the Islamic assault on The Citadel, a military school in South Carolina with
a strict dress code for its cadets, on and off school grounds. A Muslima
applied to the school and insisted that she be able to wear her nijab with her uniform. On April 22,
When news spread that The
Citadel was considering the first-ever exception to its strict uniform
requirements to allow an admitted student to wear a hijab in keeping with her
Muslim faith, reaction was intense. Some welcomed the possibility as an
important symbol of religious freedom, but for many in the tight-knit community
of cadets and alumni, the very idea of an exception was anathema because the
ideals of loyalty, uniformity, and corps-before-self are so central to
the storied public military college’s mission and traditions….
On Friday, Brett Ashworth, a
Citadel spokesman, said the school is considering two specific requests from
the student: That she be allowed to wear a hijab and that she be allowed to
cover her arms and legs.
school is still mulling over whether or not to grant the Muslima’s wishes (the hijab in
uniform, her own separate room, special clothing during physical exercises,
etc.; I wonder if she gets to break classes and drill to bow to Mecca and has
special meals prepared for her in the mess hall). The cadet who leaked the
story to the press, was punished.
Citadel Cadet Nick Pinelli, the cadet who leaked the
story of the school’s consideration of a Muslim student’s request to wear a
hijab, was reportedly punished
with 33 hours of marching according to a post on Jihad

CAIR Asks Louisiana Judge to Ensure that Courtroom Hijab Ban Not Be Repeated
(WASHINGTON, D.C., 4/28/16) The Council on
American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and
advocacy organization, today called on a Louisiana judge to ensure that the
recent removal of a Muslim woman from court because she wears an Islamic head
scarf, or hijab, not be repeated.
CAIR said the Muslim woman, who does not want to be

Star Transport, Inc., a trucking company based in
Morton, Ill., violated federal law by failing to accommodate two employees
because of their religion, Islam, and discharging them, the U.S. Equal
Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) charged
in a lawsuit filed today.
The lawsuit alleged that Star Transport refused to
provide two employees with an accommodation of their religious beliefs when it
terminated their employment because they refused to deliver alcohol.
A trucking company may be obligated to accommodate religious
observance by providing time off for holidays or prayers. It is not obligated
to excuse employees from doing their actual job. And delivering alcohol is part
of what being a truck driver means. If it's against your religion, find a job
that doesn't involve delivering large quantities of foods and beverages.
In fact there is no actual prohibition that bars
Muslims from driving a truck full of alcohol. There are prohibitions on
drinking alcohol. Every Muslim corner store I have ever seen sells alcohol,
alongside smuggled cigarettes and lottery tickets. Many Muslim countries allow
the sale of alcohol.
the Muslim truckers won the suit. The Washington
Post reported on October 23rd:
One more data point on the “When
does your religion legally excuse you from doing part of your job?”
question — like it or not, under American law, employers sometimes do have to
excuse employees from tasks that the employees find religiously objectionable.
Tuesday, two Muslim truck drivers who were fired for refusing to deliver
shipments containing alcohol were awarded $40,000 in compensatory damages and
$200,000 in punitive damages by the jury in their discrimination claim.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission brought suit on their
behalf (EEOC v. Star Transport Co., Inc. (N.D. Ill.)), arguing that the
employer had failed to provide “reasonable accommodations” to the employees —
i.e., accommodations (including an exemption from job duties) that could be
provided without “undue hardship” to the employer or others. The court noted
that Star Transport had indeed often “swap[ped]’ loads between drivers,” and
Star Transport conceded that it could have easily accommodated this request,
too, but argued (unsuccessfully) that it shouldn’t be liable for punitive

Post article concludes:
But as the Peoria Journal
Star (Andy Kravetz) notes, “Whether the men collect their money is another
story. Star Transport went out of business earlier this year and it’s unknown
who is now responsible for the judgment….
the assertion that Islam is a death cult, Daniel Greenfield also writes about what
Muslim women who hanker for Paradise can expect upon expiration of their
worldly existence. They would be no contest with “90
Foot Islamic Virgins” awaiting the male Jihadist “martyrs.”
The 90-foot-tall transparent
creature with visible bone marrow and none of the functions of life is a giant
skeleton. The love that Muslim terrorists have for it is a love for death.
ISIS is recreating the Islamic paradise on earth by capturing and handing out
girls of “tender age” to the Jihadists. It forces them to take contraceptives
and conducts forced abortions so that, like the 72 virgins, the captured girls
will never actually have children. It even conducts reconstruction surgery
after the rapes so that their victims will more closely resemble the eternal
virgins of Islamic paradise.
The Islamic State isn’t just Islamic. It’s a hellish attempt to create an
Islamic heaven on earth.
there is this unkind cut from our House of Representatives, as first reported
of Vienna December 29, 2015 and reprinted in the Counter
Jihad Report on the 30th, “HR 569:
CAIR’s Standard Operating Procedure” for applying the scalpel to America.
author of the Gates of Vienna piece argues that HR 569 will not pass; the
numbers are against it. After reprinting the pious language of the Resolution,
Once again, this will not
pass. However, the fact that 82 Democrats have co-sponsored it will be used to
validate the Muslim Brotherhood (CAIR, ISNA, MPAC, etc. etc.) claim that hate
crimes have increased (and of course they haven’t for Muslims, although they
may have increased against Jews in America, who are historically identified in
FBI statistics as victimized in hate crimes five to ten times more frequently
than Muslims in America)….
So it won’t pass, but it’s still useful to
the Muslim Brotherhood to validate their claims among their own constituency,
as well as to the media and the Low Information Voters, or those who just
respond to any kind of “virtue-signaling”. And it’s useful to the 82
co-sponsoring Democrats, and the Democratic National Committee as a whole, to
claim that all Republicans who did not co-sponsor are therefore, by definition:
- engaged in
hate speech, by the sin of omission of not cosponsoring; and
- engaged in
incitement to hate crimes, by the implied sin of hate speech resulting
from the sin of omission of not co-sponsoring.
It’s also worth noting that there are 188
Democrats in the House of Representatives, and 246 Republicans. So unless this
gets a lot of new co-sponsors in 2016, a counter-argument against the DNC on
this Resolution would be that it has met with overwhelming bi-partisan
opposition from the majority of Democrats (106) and all Republicans in the
yes, it is a
successful effort for the target audiences at which it is aimed, including the
foreign funders for CAIR, ISNA etc., all of whom will be tickled pink that this
bill has 82 co-sponsors. As will the OIC, who might have helped a bit in
drafting the Resolution.
are dozens of pages of the “cuts” that have been inflicted on this country,
many, if most, aided by the eager interference of a Federal agency, the EEOC. I
could go on for twenty more pages just to list them. The country is being bled
dry, and the wounds will not heal until the EEOC is defunded, Americans see Islam
as the death cult it really is, the ISNA, the ICNA, the MSA, and all its
terrorist-affiliated ilk are booted out of the country, and the current
principals of CAIR are finally indicted, tried, and sent to jail with bread and
water as their only solace. All Muslims currently living in this country –
legally or illegally – should be disenfranchised, so as to not provide our
native statists with an extra power base.
the cuts will continue in furtherance of the pursuit of death.

Poisonous Peas in a Pod
Posted by Edward Cline at 6:56 AM
Washington Examiner on April 24th, in its article, “Obama:
Germany’s Merkel is right on refugee welcome,” reported President Barack
Obama’s European musings on immigration:
|The Chancellor was a terrorist|
President Obama says German
Chancellor Angela Merkel is “on the right side of history” in how she has
responded to the influx of thousands of Syrian refugees surging into Europe.
At a press conference Sunday,
the president said he is “proud” of Merkel and the German people for their
open-door policy of migrants fleeing violence and uncertainty in their home
“She is on the right side of
history on this,” Obama said as he stood next to Merkel in Hannover, Germany.
“And for her to take on some very tough politics in order to express not just a
humanitarian concern but also a practical concern, that in this globalized
world, it is very difficult for us to simply build walls.”
many Europeans are fleeing
their home countries for points that do not welcome hordes of destructive
and hostile Muslim barbarians who have boasted that Germany and other Western
countries are “dead meat.” Doors are
opening all over the Continent. However, they are swinging doors that can snap
back to strike Merkel harshly on her electoral derriere.
Obama’s praise comes after
Merkel faced fallout in a referendum of sorts on her immigration policy. In
last month’s state elections, Merkel’s party, the Christian Democrats, took a
beating. An anti-immigration party made significant gains.
Obama has promised to admit
100,000 Syrian and Iraqi refugees into the U.S. this year. He faces pushback
from Republicans who fear a possible security threat. GOP presidential
candidates, like front-runner Donald Trump, have attacked Obama’s pledge to
allow refugees into this country.
is not just a security threat in back of those concerns. The literal invasion
of the U.S. by hordes of Muslims – especially Syrian, Iraqi, and Somalian
Muslims – poses a cultural and political threat, as well. The introduction of
so many hostile and assimilation-resistant Muslims is part and parcel of the Muslim
Brotherhood’s overall plan to subvert the country from within, per the
General Memorandum of 1991. The
country can be rotted from within through demographics and an overall plan to
perpetuate the welfare state.
ideological symbiosis between Obama and Merkel is worth exploring. Obama and
Merkel are political leaders determined to “remake” their countries in
conformance with their mutual ideologies. Obama’s motivation has been
repeatedly demonstrated to be rooted in an undiluted malevolence for America,
one closely allied to his Alinsky/Communist agenda. He wants to swamp America
and Western culture with hordes of people “of color” more amenable to the
welfare state (at least, that is his premise) so that the demographics shift to
perpetuate the welfare state, statism, and the Democratic grip on the country.
He wants to create the “new American” who isn’t automatically “white.”
you will, accuse Obama of racism, of racism by explicit policy and little
disguised malice. Obama’s “resettlement” program, paid to Christian “charities”
with tax dollars, is community-organizing along ethnic lines. It differs little
from Merkel’s except in scale.
|I am the "new American man"|
Merkel is largely
motivated by her East German Communist upbringing. Her Communist ideology is
proof against all reason. The collapse of Soviet Russia in 1989-1991
with its East European satellites, including East Germany, left her in an
ideological void, as an outlander. In her life, there was no “yearning to
breathe free” of tyranny. Her desire and career path were to become a member of
the East German Communist establishment. How could she “relate” to freedom?
There was no way she could truly sympathize with what millions of East Germans
wanted and what West Germans had enjoyed for decades. She could not “relate” to
it without voluntarily undergoing a philosophical and moral sea change, in her
politics and in herself. And that was not going to happen. She was in her
mid-thirties when the Berlin Wall came down. Too much energy had been invested
in pushing the collectivist line. The girl can’t help herself.
take the statist ideologue out of tyranny and place him in a relatively free
political and social environment, but, after a certain age, you can't take the
statist out of the person, together with a tenacious need and compulsion to
control things and people. The ideologue isn’t going to be impressed or
persuaded by the cornucopia of wealth available in a free country. He will
enjoy them, and even extol them, but he will always stump for a “higher”
purpose for living other than enjoying life.
grand design is to fabricate the “new German man” who will be of the old stock
of Germans somehow amalgamated with immigrant Muslims. Germans are proving
highly resistant to the shotgun marriage.
On April 12, 1961, Yuri
Gagarin’s historic spaceflight shook the world, sending enthusiastic crowds of
Soviet citizens onto the streets to celebrate. Just a few months later, the Twenty-Second
Congress adopted new Communist Party program, which set the goal of building
the foundations of communism in the Soviet Union by 1980. This all-out drive
toward communism had two crucial components: the construction of a material and
technical basis of communism, and the development of the “new Soviet man” – “a
harmonic combination of rich spirituality, moral purity, and physical
perfection.” Who better than Gagarin to embody this new ideological construct?
Soviet Man: Inside Machine: Human Engineering, Spacecraft Design, and the
Construction of Communism.” Science, Technology and Society Program, E51-185,
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA
02139; April 2005)
From the October Soviet coup d’état of the Provisional government to the wheezy collapse of
the Soviet Union in December
1991, Soviet citizens and East Europeans were indoctrinated on the vision
of the “new Soviet Man.” He
was a creature who would mindlessly fit into Communist ideology and be in every
way compatible with it, not only in space, but on the ground in industry and
agriculture and economic regulation. He would be “programmed” to make Communism
be his only motivation, to help to make it work, and be instilled to labor ceaselessly
to advance the triumph of Communism in Russia and everywhere else.
reported in August 2015 on the mass immigration into Germany:
The number of immigrants living
in Germany rose by 3.7 percent last year to a record high of 11 million and a
fifth of the population is of migrant background, the Federal statistics Office
said on Monday.
The figures highlight Germany’s
growing reliance on foreign-born workers to drive its powerhouse economy,
Europe’s largest, as well as its acceptance of hundreds of thousands of
refugees. Many of the immigrants came from other European Union countries, such
as Poland, Romania, Italy, Bulgaria, and Hungary.
Last year, the number of people
living in Germany of a migrant background had risen by around 1.5 million, or
10 percent, from 2011. The native population – excluding people of a migrant
background – fell by 1.4 percent.
Romanians, and Hungarians might assimilate into Germany enough to be taken for
Germans, and perhaps even “feel” German. But Muslims have proven relentlessly
over time to resist becoming “German,” that is, to not surrender their Islamic
identities, but who, not so ironically, expect their host countries to adapt
and defer to Islam. Second generation Muslim immigrants, particularly
Turks, are not the “new German men.” They are in the vanguard of Muslim
activism and even terrorism. The only thing Muslims are busy doing is preying
on European women, harassing European men, hanging around in refugee and asylum
centers, trashing private property seized by the government to house “refugees,”
and perhaps doing a little dope business on the side to supplement their
welfare state handouts.
those rape statistics in Germany
one must ask oneself: Are Muslim women so unattractive that they are not the
usual victims of Muslim rapes? Well, it
might have something to do with their Islamic dress, which is to make them as
unalluring as possible.
|Refugees and asylum seekers coming to your town|
Merkel, to Obama’s applause and pats on the back, sees the barbarians as the
“new Germans.” They will become the new “workforce” of Germany. Walid
Shoebat and others disagree vehemately and pointedly.
estimates that just two percent of Muslim
refugees in the rehabilitation program are ready to take a job. “You
are not ready to work.” The stamp is the vast majority of refugees by the
municipalities. Daniel Greenfield, in his article The Death of Europe, said: “The
Muslim migrants are meant to be the retirement plan for an aging Europe. But
the Mohammed retirement plan won’t save European Socialism. It will bury it.” Politiken: The
figures cover refugees who have been granted asylum in Denmark and 31 in
December were doing an integration program in a municipality. The refugees
receive either cash or integration performance.
also wants more propaganda spread through Africa inviting the
diseased beggars there to come to Germany and learn a trade. Good luck with
that. What Europe and America needs, in addition to “resettled” ISIS fighters,
are the killers of Boko Haram and Al-Shabaab planted in our midst.
retirement plan that Islam has in store for Europe is to end Europe by
invitation from Merkel and her political ilk elsewhere on the Continent. Islam is
in Europe. And Europe is now a satrap of Islam.

Chomsky at the Bit
Posted by Edward Cline at 5:47 PM
the heels of publishing “And
the World Was Made Right” (Rule of Reason, April 23), which has had an
incredible and positive response from many quarters, I happened to read Cliff
Kincaid’s review of Michael Walsh’s The
Devil’s Pleasure Palace: The Cult of Critical Theory and the Subversion of the
West on AIM’s
site (Accuracy in Media). The review is titled “Defunding
the Marxist Madrassas.”
|Mortar boards on freshly minted flatheads|
review of the Walsh book opens with some richly deserved swipes at Noam Chomsky, the MIT
professor of everything under the sun. For decades, the name, “Noam Chomsky,” for
me, at least, has evoked the image of a leftist college professor instructing
his student victims to “thoroughly chew” his latest theory – say, of Cognitive closure, or of Psychological nativism, or of Recursion in
language -- until they can memorize it and recite it back to him verbatim
(preferably in a choral mode). That is, after all, the nature of an Islamic madrassa – to memorize – not to understand
or critique the Koran and other Islamic texts – until one’s mind is completely
subverted by masses of illogic and non sequiturs and one is no longer able to
think. Once one has memorized by rote every little comma, simile, and metaphor
of the Koran, one is ready to join the Taliban (Islamic students) to kill and
is, more or less, what American students of Chomsky (and students of his ilk
elsewhere in academia) to go out and do: become activists for Socialism, Social
Justice, to Occupy Wall Street, occupy your home, occupy your business, and
become the snowflakes for “safe places” and the hoarse hollerers for women’s
restrooms being open to transgenders and LGBTs of every stripe. And also become
advocates and demonstrators for Muslim immigration and trigger-warning
Noam Chomsky, a Marxist professor who says he
has been at MIT for 65 years, maintains that we need a new economic system. He
has endorsed something called “the next system,” which is supposed to replace
free enterprise capitalism. My counter-proposal is for a “next system” to
replace Chomsky and other Marxists in academia. My old friend, “Jimmy from
Brooklyn,” a legendary anti-communist, says what we need is the defunding of
the “Marxist Madrassas,” otherwise known as college and universities.
system” appears to be the total collectivization of the country, and especially
of the realm of education. Here, at Alternet,
is Chomsky caught with his socialist pants down:
An initial signatory to the Next System statement, Chomsky
explores the connections between culture, mass movements, and economic
experiments—which in “mutually reinforcing” interaction, may build toward a
next system more quickly than you may think.
Next System Project: As the Next System Project
engages in dozens of university campus-based teach-ins across the country, what
do you think of such approaches to engaging campus communities in deep,
critical inquiry—can they help transform our society?
Chomsky applauds Bernie Sanders, the socialist presidential candidate. But perhaps
he instead regards Sanders as a doddering, buffoonish, semi-senile old fool suffering
from genuine cognitive closure. That would be a fair assessment of the failure
is statement by “the next system,” a statement that dances around the term “socialism”
and is an instance of sociological puffery:
We are at or near the bottom among advanced
democracies across a score of key indicators of national
well-being—including relative poverty, inequality, education, social
mobility, health, environment, militarization, democracy, and more.
We have fundamental problems because of fundamental
flaws in our economic and political system. The crisis now unfolding in so
many ways across our country amounts to a systemic crisis.
Today’s political economic system is not programmed to
secure the wellbeing of people, place and planet. Instead, its priorities
are corporate profits, the growth of GDP, and the projection of national
Large-scale system change is needed but has until
recently been constrained by a continuing lack of imagination concerning
social, economic and political alternatives. There are alternatives that
can lead to the systemic change we need.
Of course, Chomsky does not want to replace the system
that pays his salary and provides a platform for his Marxism. A real
alternative to the current economic system would take the taxpayers off the
hook for subsidizing state colleges and universities that keep Marxists like
Chomsky on the payroll and undermine traditional values.
It is said that Chomsky is a “philosopher, linguist,
and social critic.” Whatever this means, it looks like he has more time to
spout his Marxism than to teach his students anything worthwhile. Perhaps that
is his intention. By failing to educate students in practical skills useful for
real jobs, he leaves them hopeless and despondent about the system that he
wants them to replace. His students are his cannon fodder for “the next
system,” which is supposed to be brought into being by students who are turned
into activists through brainwashing sessions organized by the likes of Chomsky.
Walsh, as Kincaid reveals, offers a truly radical solution to today’s college “crisis”
and the unimaginable debt assumed by college students and by the taxpayer:
scrap the Ivy Leagues, state colleges, and community colleges, put the Marxists
out of work, and patronize the plethora of existing and future online
universities each of which would offer tuition costs infinitesimally lower than
the standard costs of about $20,000 per year.
now smothered in Federal
Michael Walsh is the latest to document the influence
of cultural Marxism in academia and American society at large. His book, The
Devil’s Pleasure Palace: The Cult of Critical Theory and the Subversion of the
West, examines how American institutions have been taken over by the
likes of Chomsky. The solution, however, cannot rest simply with exposure or
even reform. The cultural Marxists will not cede power over the minds of the
young. Instead, the solution is to establish new institutions that attract
parents and young people to educational alternatives which promise marketable
skills and jobs in the real economy.
Those alternatives are usually grouped under the
rubric of online learning. These low-cost alternatives to brick-and-mortar
colleges and universities can also address another pressing problem for many
young people—massive college debt through federal loans that in 40 percent of
the cases are not repaid. The current federal student loan debt stands at a
staggering $1.2 trillion. The current system is unsustainable.
unfortunately true that many of these online or vocational schools are already
in hock to or dependent on federal and government financing
schemes for their students (such as Kaplan
The ultimate solution is to get the government out of education altogether.
Judging by the success of Sanders in the presidential race, it
would appear that the real crisis is that higher education has failed to
prepare young people for the future and has instead left them struggling to pay
tens of billions of dollars in student loan debt. However, those turning out
for Sanders have been led to believe that more taxes and debt are the solution.
This approach leaves Marxists like Chomsky, still ensconced in academia,
agitating for the “next system” of socialism that will leave young people even
Even if their debts
are “forgiven,” and the federal debt monkey is off their backs, most of these
students will be ill-prepared to live independent, productive lives in the real
world. Kincaid writes:
This process of subversion has been going on too long to hope for
reform of the academic institutions that have been captured and rotted from
within. We need to defund those that already exist, and create new institutions
to replace those in the hands of the cultural Marxists. Some of them are online
structures such as Amberton
University and Western Governors University.
My friend "Jimmy from Brooklyn" says we need to go further, in regard to existing colleges and universities, and demand a "separation of Marx and state," so that affirmative action for conservative professors can be implemented to strive for some sort of equality and real "diversity."
Michael Walsh’s The Devil’s Pleasure Palace is a must
read for anyone who is concerned about the costs and the direction of higher
education. Today, in America, “higher” education more often than not means brainwashing
on psychedelic drugs of the Marxist kind.
