The Cultural Marxist Mystique

by Al Benson Jr.

Way back in those antediluvian days we refer to as 1960, Dr. Fred Schwartz, founder of the Christian Anti-Communist Crusade, wrote an informative book called You Can Trust the Communists (to be Communists).  It must have been really good in its day. It went through eleven printings that I know of and, amazingly, it is still available on Amazon. I’d recommend getting a copy.  It was a book that delved into the Communist mindset, or worldview, and it explained why they do what they do (and they’re still doing it) and why they think the way they think. Their mindset is still alive and well among the Leftist “social justice warriors” we are currently hearing about.

Over the years I have read countless articles that have pointed out many Communist activities and atrocities, and the people that wrote most of them seemed, somehow, amazed that the Communists could, supposedly, “speak out of both sides of their mouths” at the same time and be such hypocrites for doing it. As sincere at these folks were, they did not understand Communism. The Communists, by their lights, and in their  own eyes, were not hypocrites but were perfectly honest and sincere. Like our cultural Marxists today, they had their own view of what words meant–and their meaning was not our meaning. Words didn’t (and don’t) mean to them what they do to us. The word “peace” is a glowing example. To us (normal people) the word “peace” means everyone getting along with one another, live and let live. Dr. Schwartz explained how the Communists viewed “peace.”

He observed: “The Communists believe they are at war. They desire “peace” with all their hearts. But to them, peace is that golden consummation  when the progressive force of Communism totally overwhelms American imperialism and climaxes in Communist world conquest. By definition, ‘peace’ is Communist world conquest.” And the Communist will never be at “peace”  until that objective is accomplished. If that is the case with this one word, can you begin to imagine what they do with words like “justice,” “love,” “honor,” “integrity?” Even though they and we use the same words we, literally, do not speak the same language they do.

With the cultural Marxist of today it is no different. Whatever else he may be, he is still a Marxist and he thinks like a Marxist. Most people today who write about cultural Marxists do not understand them any better than their grandfathers understood Communism.  And because we have not learned in the past several generations, we continue to make the same mistake today. Many think they can just compromise with the cultural Marxists, a little give and take, and everyone will be happy. Not so! There is no compromise with “those people”–it has to be “their way or the highway.” Talk to someone in the Sons of Confederate Veterans  who has tried to dialogue with someone in the NAACP. They will tell you–and we have to learn that. We don’t seem to have yet.

For the cultural Marxists it is totally permissible for for them to do what they openly condemn us for doing because they honestly believe they are doing it for a “righteous” cause and that makes all the difference. In their eyes, if you have a “righteous” cause you are allowed to do anything whatever, no matter how underhanded, sneaky or dishonest, because “the end justifies the means.”

So when the “presstitutes”  in the “news” media (who are cultural Marxists) put out their fake news, and then accuse others of what they themselves do, that’s okay, because their fake news is being used toward a good and noble cause–the destruction of what is left of the Christian West and the Free Enterprise System and those who support it. That, in their eyes, justifies their doing whatever they have to do to promote their agenda.

So they are not hypocrites–they are cultural Marxists, which means, in their thinking, that they are allowed to do all the rotten stuff that is forbidden to us because, after all, they are doing it for all the “right” reasons.  Believe it or not, they really think this way. They really believe this.

So we err in calling them hypocrites, because they are 100% sincere in what they think and do, just as their Communist grandfathers were 50-100 years ago. This may not make sense to normal people, but it is the way they think! This is what most on our side fail to grasp. We are not dealing with mere hypocrites–we are dealing with committed ideologues. Rather than just labeling them hypocrites we should be exposing their mindset and explaining to people how it works.

I will note one example that should be obvious to all of us, especially those of us that live in the South. Try to grasp what this means here in the South in regard to Confederate flags and monuments, school names, street names or whatever. Most naive people seem to be under the delusion that if we just remove a few flags, or even take down some monument, our opposition will see our sincerity and leave us alone. As the man says “Dream on Alice!” It will never work out that way and our side had better start  realizing that now. You can’t just “be nice” to those people and try to meet them halfway. When you attempt to do that they sense victory and will go for your throat!

They are at war with your total culture and history and they will not quit  until they have utterly destroyed both–and left your children and grandchildren with Nothing!  At that point, they may decide they are at peace with you–if you can no longer resist, but don’t count on it. The minute they discover some Confederate or Southern symbol they missed on the first go-round, the war is on again.

Only when they have totally destroyed your Christian faith, culture, and history, and left wreckage in their place, will they be at “peace” with you because they you have nothing  left to fight back with. The total destruction of your faith and culture is their “peace.” Folks, we have got to get this through our heads. The only thing “those people” understand is resistance!

If we are not ready to give their agenda for us total resistance, then they will defeat us and remove our children’s and grandchildren’s faith and heritage. And total resistance encompasses much more than just the flags and monuments.

Please check out the latest article on http://thecopperhead.blogspot.com for March 27th where Trump questions why the House Intelligence Committee has no questions whatever about Hillary’s deal with the Russians to sell them 20% of our Uranium. This is the question that is not supposed to be asked and will  probably never be answered.

Fake News and Fake History

 

by Al Benson Jr.

We hear much about “fake news” today and, in all honesty, most of what we get from the Mainstream Media is fake news. They may get the weather report and the ball scores right because there usually isn’t a political agenda apparent in those two items, but their accuracy doesn’t go much beyond that. But, then, they are in the propaganda business, not the accuracy business.

Though it might come as a shock to many today, this is nothing new. They have been in the propaganda business since before the War of Northern Aggression. All you need to do is to see some of the “news” accounts in Northern papers of what terrorist John Brown did in the 1850s and you will begin to get the picture. Not only is what is presented, in many cases, rank propaganda, but there are significant things left out that reporters and “historians” really would rather we didn’t know about. We can’t ask the questions that need to be asked if we have no information.

The Kennedy Brothers, in their recent book Punished with Poverty published by Shotwell Publishing  www.ShotwellPublishing.com   have noted some “omissions” from the historical record. For instance: “A Mississippi Unionist stated during Reconstruction that 50% of the blacks in Mississippi died during the war. Taken at face value the prior estimate would seem unreasonable. But when viewed in  light of the events in  the ‘Devil’s Punchbowl’ at Natchez, Mississippi, it becomes believable. The ‘Devil’s Punchbowl’  was the name given to a contraband, actually concentration, camp established by the Union army after it occurpied Natchez. Over 20,000 ‘freed’ slaves died in the Union army’s concentration camp in the year following the Union army’s occupation of Natchez. The camp was walled off by the Union army to prevent escape.” Remember, these were “freed” slaves and they were now tasting their first gulp of Yankee/Marxist “freedom.” Somehow, I don’t think it was quite what they expected from “Father Abraham.” Funny, but I don’t recall reading about this in any of my “history” books. It would appear that Fake History includes not only Yankee/Marxist propaganda that is false, but also, much accurate information is simply just omitted, because, after all, students don’t really need to know all this. It might color their perception of what the “change agent” who is supposed to be a teacher is passing along to them. For those wanting to, you can check the “Devil’s Punchbowl” out on the Internet, and you will find that the Kennedys have it right.

And the Kennedys note how this is done: “National historians who act as propagandists advancing or defending the Federal Empire’s narrative about the ‘Civil War’ are quick to dismiss examples of the Federal Empire’s military using extreme measures against Southern civilians. They do this primarily by ignoring the Empire’s atrocities; if they do mention civilian deaths they dismiss it as a natural part of war– with the implicit assumption that the ‘Civil War’ was a just war made necessary by an evil South that attacked the North at Fort Sumter, South Carolina. Occasionally the Empire’s propagandists (also known as national historians)  will acknowledge a ‘few’ atrocities but insist that they were only isolated events not worthy of scholarly notice” (unless Southerners did them). Some of this information is in Punished with Poverty on pages 70-75.

Also noted and naturally left out of our “history” books, was the propensity of Yankee/Marxist generals toward a policy of extermination for Southern folks. That caring and compassionate legislator from Pennsylvania, Thaddeus Stevens, said at one point “(Treat the South) as conquered provinces and settle them with new men and exterminate or drive out the present rebels as exiles.” So where were the “present rebels” supposed to go when you had driven them off their land and out of their homes? Being a truly magnanimous Yankee, Stephens doesn’t worry about that. And another merciful Marxist type, Brig. General James H. Lane, said of the War “We believe in a war of extermination.” Some of you all should remember General Lane. I have written about him and his particular breed of vermin from abolitionist Kansas before.

In speaking of Lincoln and the Leftist radicals in Congress, the Kennedy Brothers observed: “Their goal was to exterminate enough of the native Southern population to allow the Southern part of the United States to be ‘repopulated’ with Northerners who would then support the expanding Federal empire.” Almost sounds like what modern Washington politicians, both Republicans and Democrats, have been doing to the South with the illegal immigrant situation. Of course you all understand that any similarities between the two situations are purely coincidental.

Folks really need to read Punished with Poverty to begin to get a grasp of the plan that Yankee/Marxist politicians had and still have for the South. Those people really hanker for the death of your culture, faith, and history and they are far from bashful about promoting those ends. We have got to start learning not to be bashful about resisting them.

“Dixie Rising–Rules for Rebels”

by Al Benson Jr.

Just this past week I came into possession of a new book by Ron Kennedy called Dixie Rising–Rules for Rebels which was just published this year by Shotwell Publishing http://www.ShotwellPublishing.com  in Columbia, South Carolina. Shotwell Publishing is not a fancy, slick-paper outfit. They publish “meat and potatoes” books, mostly for Southern folks who want to know the truth of their history and have an accurate idea of what goes on in the South today.

This latest book by Ron Kennedy is the kind of book that tells you what you need to do to resist the federal leviathan and the political sucklings that live off of it, who promise you one thing at election time and then do the exact opposite once you have voted them into office. It is based on the same format as Alinski’s Rules for Radicals, but where Alinski presents a program for tearing down decent society, Ron Kennedy presents one for preserving decent society, especially Christian society.

In this brief article I am not going to try to present everything Ron has to say about restoring traditional Christian, Southern culture. That would be impossible. Therefore, Lord willing, I will, in the future, be dealing with more of what Ron has to say.

This book details many of our current problems here in the South and Ron notes that Southern folks trying to win by the “usual, traditional political methods” is and has been a loser for us basically since 1865. And he notes, on page 14, that “Traditional politics is the method used by the Federal Empire’s politicians to keep we the people of the South pacified and under their control. If we the people of the former Confederate States of America wish to be free, we must engage in political guerrilla warfare or, more currently described as irregular political warfare.” And he goes into exactly how we need to do this–one of the main parts of this process being education, because our folks have been dumbed down for so long by the Unitarian/socialist public school system that most no longer have any true grasp of our history. And if we don’t know where we came from then we have no clue as to where we should be going, or how to get there. Ron uses this book to show you where you should be going and how you should get there. Ron observes, on page 43 that: “…our first and primary goal is to educate our people. Our second goal is to use an aroused and motivated public to create a movement to reclaim liberty. Every act must be measured against the standard of ‘will this advance the goal of regaining freedom for we the people of the South’.”

For instance, the heading for chapter 4 is: Organizing Dixie’s Freedom Movement.  Ron stresses at the start of chapter 4 that: “…all of our activists and supporters understand the necessity of endorsing the concept of non-violent  resistance to Federal tyranny. The liberal establishment will use every trick, lie and slander available to destroy this movement once it becomes clear that we are having an impact. They will try to convince the world that we are evil racists who secretly promote the use of violence  And they are not above using false flag operations to do this.

Ron goes into methods for reaching different groups of folks; taxpayers, Secnd Amendment supporters, Christians, small businessmen, etc. I could tell from reading this book that they have a good program, one that is well thought out and that, if people are willing to work at it, may well be successful–to the chagrin of professional politicians and “New World Order” types.

And on page 24 and following Ron discusses what he calls Project 20/20 A Vote for Southern Freedom–Dixie’s Brexit!  I’m not going to try to explain that here. You need to get the book and see what Ron lays out.

 

Why Do Southerners Continue to Finance the Destruction of Their Children and Culture?

by Al Benson Jr.

It never ceases to amaze me how people can continue to feed their progeny into those Marxist meatgrinders  we refer to as public schools and “institutions of higher learning” and then wonder why their kids come home spouting the lessons they have learned about Marx or Mao or Che and how wonderful the society they have planned for us will be.

People spend literally millions every year paying through the nose for “educations” for their children when, in most cases, all these “educations” are really all about is the planned destruction of their culture and faith. That may sound harsh to some, but having worked around and at colleges, I can attest to what those institutions do to kids’ faith and culture. While I am not indicting every teacher or professor  (there are some honest ones, though not nearly enough) I do indict the systems they work for that claim to be about “education” but are really about student indoctrination.

Confirmation of my viewpoint was driven home to me awhile back by a friend in Georgia who has been part of the Southern Movement and happened to have a Confederate flag in his garage. One day his grandson came over and asked him why he had that “racist” flag in his garage. The grandson attends the local public school. Realizing there was a definite problem with his grandson’s history education, Grandpa has taken it upon himself to work with his grandson to correct some of the gross errors  perpetrated by that school’s “history” or “social studies” teachers and, at last report, it seemed to be helping out. And that is good. But how many grandsons across the South and other places have this same historical bilge thrown at them where there is no help from concerned grandfathers or dads? Too many!  And our history and our culture are being systematically trashed–and we are willingly paying for it!

The same is true of colleges in the South. Many naive Southern folks think they can just avoid these problems by making sure their kids attend Southern colleges and don’t go north for their higher education. That could have been true 130 years ago or so–but no more. Southern colleges have been thoroughly infiltrated by the minions of cultural Marxism every bit as much as those in Yankeeland, and we had better wake up and smell the college coffee–and I can guarantee you won’t like the aroma–it has the smell of the far, far Left!

A case in point–Richard Meagher, a political science professor at Randolph Macon College in Ashland, Virginia. Professor Meagher just had an op-ed piece printed in the Richmond Times-Dispatch for January 1, 2017. The headline for his piece was A plea for the new year: No more Confederate nonsense, please.  Meagher admits he is a transplanted Northerner and that, therefore, he feels his opinion will be worthless to a good number of Virginia folks and other Southerners as well–yet here he is, teaching in the South, and spreading that opinion to lots of Southern young folks. I guess he figures if he can’t change their parents’  minds the least he can do is to indoctrinate the kids and change theirs. This was a classic “reconstruction” tactic after the War of Northern Aggression. Ignore the parents and indoctrinate the kids.

If what he says in his op-ed piece is a sample of what he promotes in his classes then those kids that sit in his classes are in trouble. Meagher states: “When I teach my politics courses, I remind students that the long history of American politics boils down to the repeated need to placate racist Southerners. Beginning with the three-fifths compromise in the Constitution, and continuing through decades of compromise to prevent a Civil War, Northern politicians did their best to tolerate a brutal apartheid   regime that was improbably nested within their developing democracy.” And he states later that: “To put it bluntly: The Confederates were the bad guys, as were their Jim Crow descendants.  They lost, and the country is immeasurably better for it.” Really? Someone should ask Mr. Meagher about the Jim Crow laws in Illinois sometime, though I doubt if he’d acknowledge the existence of them, but exist they did, whether he will admit it or not.

Meagher has no patience with Southern claims about states rights or that the War was about the principle of secession. He labels those claims as “preposterous.” You can tell from the running dog of his commentary that all his students will ever get out of his classes is that the War was fought over slavery. For him there is no other reason worthy of mention, and besides we all know–that the Confederates were the bad guys, right? You can bet your kids will know that after sitting at the feet of the “master.”

Mr. Meagher attended the City University of New York where he got his Ph. D. so I guess that is the line they preach there. Although you would have thought, with a Ph. D. he would have realized that is country was a Republic, not a “developing democracy,” but the difference between the two seems lost on him.

What it all boils down to is this–we have just got to cease celebrating all this “Confederate nonsense” and we “need to stop holding up the Confederacy as something to honor.” In other words, the Yankee/Marxists don’t like what we do here in the South and so we just need to stop doing it to keep them happy. And when we stop doing this or that they don’t like, why before long, they will appear with another demand to cease and desist from something else they don’t like. Do you begin to see where all this is headed?

As you can see, the systematic attack on Confederate history and heritage has already begun for 2017. Meagher fired the opening shot on New Year’s day–he didn’t even wait for the warm weather like the cultural Marxists did the last two years. And good Southern patriots better not wait for the warm weather to answer him either. The battle for your culture, faith, and heritage has already been joined for 2017. The only question is–how long will it take before us “bad guys” decide to fight back???

Please Pass the Planned Poverty

by Al Benson Jr.

How many folks chanced to drive through parts of the South in the 1950s, 60s and even in the early 70s and noted how poor the country seemed to be compared with other areas of the United States? Many probably wondered why the South couldn’t seem t do better that it was doing. To say that the South, in our lifetime, was and is the poorest part of the country, with the possible exception of Indian reservations, is no exaggeration. And yet, knowing some of the reasons for that and the history behind it, my wife and I, now living in Louisiana, would not willingly go back north to live. The South is home, and we have been more content here than just about any other place we’ve lived, for several reasons.

There are reasons for the poverty in much of the South and for the poor whites and blacks that live in it, and in many cases the poverty is not their fault. It was intended for them to live that way by those that sought to conquer them during and after the War of Northern Aggression and by the descendants of those conquerors who, even today, enjoy rubbing their faces in the planned poverty that is supposed to be their due because their ancestors had the temerity to stand up and “dare defend their rights.” Such is not to be tolerated in the cultural Marxist milieu.

To explain some of this, Ron and Donnie Kennedy have a new book out called Punished With Poverty published by Shotwell Publishing in Columbia, South Carolina http://www.ShotwellPublishing.com  which I would recommend to any and all who wonder why the South has been in the particular situation we have found her in today. About the best way I can say it (excuse my bluntness) is that those collectivist types that overran the South during and after the War planned it that way. If Southern people were too poor and beaten down to fight back again, why there would be no future resistance to what would eventually morph into what we call the New World Order.

To quote the Kennedy Brothers: “Several years ago and elderly friend of the Kennedy Twins told a story about how his grandmother  often stated that ‘those people tried to starve all of us to death after the War.’ Two things struck me about this man’s story: First, his grandmother lived in North Central Louisiana, a section of the South that was not even physically touched by the War; second, his grandmother was not talking about starvation as a result of military action in and around her home but the actions of ‘those people,’ that is, Yankees, well after the War. The war was over, what happened to the idea of ‘with malice toward none,’…” If you’ve read the history you know what happened to it. It was nice Lincolnian  political rhetoric and that’s all it was.

And the Kennedys noted also: “(A) leading Northern newspaper called for a terrible retribution against Southerners: ‘We mean to conquer them,  Subjugate them…’ Never would traitors be permitted to ‘return to peaceful and contented homes’; instead they ‘must find poverty at their firesides and see privation in the anxious eyes of mothers and the rags of children.” Now isn’t this just an ennobling Northern sentiment? Somehow this isn’t quite the picture of the noble, generous and forgiving Yankees that i was taught about in my public indoctrination center’s “history” books.  The Kennedys ask the question: “Did the nation that spawned the articles quoted above, calling for Northerners  to ‘conquer and subjugate’ the South and leave the future generations of Southerners to ‘find poverty at their firesides and see privation in the anxious eyes of mothers and the rags of children,’ institute a Reconstruction policy that fulfilled these hideous propositions? One final question that must be asked: Is the policy of impoverishment and subjugation of Southerners an ongoing political policy of modern America?” How can you answer that question any other way but “Hell, Yes.”

The Kennedys also observed that: “For Northerners who view themselves via standard establishment propaganda as grand defenders of the downtrodden and promoters of freedom, reading about how the war against the South was instituted in order to secure profits and power for the North’s ruling elite, will not be gleefully embraced.” While that is understandable, in view of what we were all taught in public indoctrination centers, if some of the Northern folks want to really grasp what the War was all about then they are going to have to start embracing what the Kennedys talk about here–gleefully or otherwise.

There is so much in this book that I can’t do more than scratch the surface here, but in the words of the late Alan Stang,  when he reviewed Donnie’s and my book, Lincoln’s Marxists, in regard to Punished With Poverty, “You need to read this book!” I will be passing more information out of Punished With Poverty along as the Lord enables.

A Slightly Revised Onslaught Of Cultural Marxist Drivel

by Al Benson Jr.

Regarding what we still mistakenly call “journalists” we are forced to admit that they long ago abdicated their positions as responsible journalists and willingly prostituted themselves for the Ruling Establishment and its leftist cronies. They have no credibility left, which they have a hard time admitting, so they seek to denigrate their adversaries while covering themselves with journalistic fig leaves. Who in his right mind still watches the “Communist News Network” or the “Communist Broadcasting System” and expects any truth? Only the “useful idiots!”

At any rate, Mark Potok claims the phones at the SPLC have been ringing off the hook with folks concerned about the “radical right” who are, if you read between the lines, all Trump supporters. Anyone who knows the history of the SPLC realizes that a big part of their agenda–a big part–is painting anyone who is politically to the right of Hillary Clinton as a “hate group.” And it doesn’t make any difference if it’s just one person or a large group. If you dare to disagree with the leftist agenda for this countrly then you are a “hate group” period! End of discussion!

Interestingly enough, according to Pastor Chuck Baldwin, writing in http://www.NewsWithViews.com back in February of 2013, the Southern Poverty Law Center…”has long been used by the federal government and the national press corps to paint conservative organizations as ‘extremists,’ ‘anti-government,’ ‘hate groups,’ etc. No sooner would the SPLC issue some attack piece in their newsletter and police agencies all over the country would be issuing bulletins to their officers regurgitating what the SPLC had just spewed out. No private organization has this kind of connection to, and influence over, police agencies nationwide without collaboration with the Department of Justice in Washington, D.C.”

And Pastor Baldwin pointed in that article to a report by Judicial Watch “confirming that the DOJ and the SPLC are intricately tied at the hip.”

That being the case, this gives you some idea of where Puente’s commentary in this article is headed and where the cultural Marxist agenda is going to be headed in the next year or so. So if you folks here in the South thought that because the weather got a little cooler of late that the culture war was over, baby, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet! So don’t just sit and watch, get ready to resist–because they are about to ramp up their efforts to totally destroy our culture and heritage along with that of any patriotic  Americans out there that may still be left.

But all, fortunately, has not gone well for the left. I just got word today that the A & E KKK project had been cancelled. It seem that some of those who were to be participants in the project had been paid to do so, which was supposed to be a no-no. There were also allusions that there was a bit of a backlash to this project. I’d be willing to give that explanation more credibility than the one about them being paid. It may well be that enough folks out there are just plain fed up and disgusted with being labeled as “racist” rednecks and “deplorables” because they didn’t have the good sense to vote for Comrade Hillary that they are starting to fight back. If so, that’s all to the good. The drivel the cultural Marxists have been throwing at us for decades now needs to be repudiated and exposed for just what it is–an eight-letter word you don’t say in polite company!

I just got another communication today from the Dixie Heritage Newsletter that mentioned that membership in the KKK is believed to be, nationwide, only about 5,000. And the communication said: “The Democrats really need these guys. Somehow they’ve got to get those numbers up.” In other words, the cultural Marxists need the KKK out there to run interference for them in the streets while they try to scare ordinary folks to death. And one of the articles I read about all this had a big photo of a KKK member, hood, robe, and all, holding a big United States flag. No Confederate flags in sight! That one seems to have slipped by the censors. I’m sure the guy that took that one has by now been informed he’d better not make that mistake again.

Psalm 97:10 says, in part, “Ye that love the Lord, hate evil:” and let’s not kid ourselves. The people that are pushing this cultural Marxist drivel, whatever way they promote it, ARE evil! Understand, I have no use for the KKK. I think they have done a lot of harm, particularly to our Southern heritage. And it is rank injustice to play the “guilt by association” game with everyone on the right by trying to tie them in, somehow, to all the “hate groups” the SPLC claims are out there. Of course, if the SPLC can scare enough people into contributing to their supposed efforts to “combat hate” then that’s cash in their coffers, even if KKK membership is way down–and that’s part of the game, too.

Is The Seed Of The Serpent A Cultural Marxist?

by Al Benson Jr.

Recently I heard a sermon delivered that was quite appropriate, given the times we now live in here in America. The pastor who delivered the sermon started out by saying: “There is a war going on and it began in the Garden of Eden. God declared the war in Genesis 3:15 between His people (“the seed of the woman”) and the followers of Satan (“the seed of the serpent”). History is the record of this holy war. This is the cause of all the conflict we see in the world and in our country. The seed of the serpent hate the Lord and despise His word and thus, hate all those that love the Lord and honor His word.  And there is NO POSSIBILITY OF PEACE between the seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent apart from apostasy or repentance.”

There is much spiritual meat in this observation at many different levels. But one thing stood out to me as I heard this–the utter impossibility of any peace between these groups unless one of them capitulates to the other. It’s as simple as that. They cannot “co-exist” peacefully at any level. Interestingly enough, the cultural Marxist that hates the Lord and His people, seems to understand that far better than most Christians do.

It seems that, in the last 180 years or so, due to horrible theology, most Christians have been bemused into just trying to “be nice” to the whole world and trying not to “offend” anyone. In this we are dead wrong! If we are not offending someone then it’s really questionable if we are even doing anything except trying to keep out of trouble with the people we should be offending. Even a cursory reading of the New Testament shows that Jesus offended lots of people, many of them religious leaders. They finally managed to have Him crucified for His “offenses” against them–His chief offense being that He told them the truth!

Marxists of all stripes seem to understand all this better than most Christians do.Back during the Cold War the doctrinaire economic Marxists used to talk about “peaceful co-existence.” It sounded reasonable and altruistic and the Christians bought into it and they voted for politicians that seemed to buy into it. No one bothered to ask what the Communist definition of “peace” was. They all thought that it was the same as ours. But if you take the trouble to study, even a little, about how the Marxists use language, you will find that their definition  of “peace” is “absence of resistance to Marxism.” Is that your definition? It isn’t mine. So, in the Marxist mindset, you can never really have peace with a communist until you submit to his will, because he will never submit to yours!

With today’s cultural Marxists it is no different. Cultural Marxists are still Marxists and they are in the habit of taking a yard if you give them an inch. They are not about to change, but unfortunately, many Christians have started to change. We have gotten flabby and soft, often with the aid of wolves in sheep’s clothing, and the cultural Marxist will encourage this moral flabbiness, all in the name of “love, diversity, and multi-culturalism ” because he realizes that all this makes us weaker and allows him to be more controlling and demanding. If he can make the Christian feel guilty for standing up for Christian standards and righteousness then he has stolen a march on us. Because, like it or not, we must realize the cultural Marxist is at war with us and all we believe–because his ancestry takes him all the way back to the seed of the serpent. What we have got to start realizing is that, as long as we live, we are at war with him!

The pastor who preached this sermon recommended that Christians should learn to cultivate a “charitable contempt” for the society around us that preaches secular values and entertains cultural Marxists as though they were really somebody special when all they are is modern day anti-Christs. This does not mean that we go out of our way to become objectionable or nasty, or anything along those lines. Rather it means that we make an effort to stand up for the truth of God’s Word as it applies to the society we live in–and for us to do that, even charitably, we must be at war with the cultural Marxist at all times, because the minute we let our guard down he will slip the spiritual (and sometimes literal) knife between the second and third rib and then laugh while we bleed to death. Christians today need to learn this.

Too often we fight one battle with the devil’s disciples and then go home and sit down and think we’ve done our duty and it’s all over. We have to begin to grasp the truth that, in this life,  it is never all over, because it isn’t for the cultural Marxist.

If we properly understand this, then that will explain the intense cultural Marxist attack on Confederate flags and monuments in recent years. Make no mistake, the intense hatred the cultural Marxist has for the South and its history is, ultimately, because that history has a Christian foundation. And the cultural Marxist will not rest until he has utterly destroyed that foundation. And so we cannot afford to rest until we have utterly and completely resisted his efforts to do so, all the while seeking the Lord’s guidance  as to how to do that.
