How Radical Lefties Are Attempting to Bring Leninism 4.0 to America

The below video is the best explanation I have seen of what is going on in America right now. 

The commenter is James Lindsay, author of the book: Cynical Theories: How Activist Scholarship Made Everything about Race, Gender, and Identity―and Why This Harms Everybody and an expert on critical theory and critical race theory.

If you plan to watch only one video this year to understand critical theory and how it is capturing American culture and politics, this is the video (35 minutes 11 seconds).

If there is any chance to save America, it is going to be the result of people understanding what Lindsey discusses in this video.

  1. Reminds me of "KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov's warning to America (1984)" video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQPsKvG6WMI

  2. Interesting video, but I'm not entirely convinced about James Lindsay's comments on what to do about it. The first one makes sense, which is to learn to recognize and spot when people are using critical theory manipulations. This is obviously critical since without this situational awareness, you won't even realize what's going on until it's too late.

    But his remaining comments about actionable activities... writing elected officials, signing petitions (for recall elections), and lawsuits (e.g. against schools teaching critical theory)... Won't the critical theorists just cancel you and/or your legal team? We've already seen recent examples of that.

  3. You cannot separate people from reality by funding their existence with unearned money stolen from taxpayers and expect rational behavior. Critical Theory nonsense as well as the skyrocketing cost of mainstream education is clear evidence of a lack of real-world discipline. Theft has consequences well beyond the financial. Theft even by a majority is wrong and should be stopped. In the mean time a complete separation of education and state should be promoted starting with local public schools.

  4. James Lindsey actually refers to Ron Paul being banned from Facebook at one point. He says something along the lines of "I don't support his ideas at all...but...just look at what "they" are doing...". This is where I cannot wrap my mind around leftist thoughts (even old time "moderate" leftists). He basically states Ron Paul's ideas are harmless...but...God forbid, I cannot support that guy...although I do support his right to say it. Good...he supports the right to say it. But, what does Ron Paul say that is so CRAZY objectionable?????
