|Herbert Marcuse (Left)|
In 1930, communist revolutionary Leon Trotsky became the first person in history to the use the term "racist."
In what context? Trotsky claimed ethnic groups (particularly the Slavs and Germans) who wanted to retain their traditional way of life rather than join the godless communist conspiracy were "backward" for choosing to support their own family groups (race). He promptly labeled them "racist."
Today, Trotsky's term is used with fervor by anti-white Christian liberals who wish to berate and discredit traditional conservative Americans who value the beliefs of their ancestors.
What is racism?
This author would contend that the concept of "racism" is a social technology invented and deployed in the mid 1900s as part of an effort to enact a left-wing social agenda on the United States and other Western countries.
What proof is there for this assertion? Consider the use of the terms themselves.
The word "racist' was nowhere found in any language until it was invented by Trotsky in his 1930 book 'History of the Russian Revolution.' In the English language, the use of terms "racism" and "racist" exploded in the 1960s, but before the mid-twentieth century neither of those words existed.
Consider two Google research charts:
|Use of the Word "Racist"|
|Use of the Word "Racism"|
To this authors knowledge the concepts behind modern racism can not be said to have existed prior to the invention of those two words.
The only comparable term is "racialism" which was used as early as the nineteenth century. Before the middle of the twentieth century, however, "racialism" simply meant the study of races, or the acknowledgement of different racial groups. It carried no negative connotation.
It seems the modern concept of racism was simply invented out of thin air.
But who invented it? Most likely it was invented by the Frankfort School.
The Frankfort School consisted of several Marxist Jewish thinkers who worked in the middle of the twentieth century. They were generally associated with the Institute for Social Research and are most well known for creating modern political correctness.
These thinkers knew Marx's violent communist revolution had failed to spread as he predicted so they attempted to engineer the rise of socialism in America by creating a cultural revolution.
To produce this cultural revolution the Frankfurt School thinkers presented many philosophical and practical recommendations. Below are eleven of the most important:
The creation of racism offenses.
Continual change to create confusion.
The teaching of sex and homosexuality to children.
The undermining of schools’ and teachers’ authority.
Mass immigration to destroy identity.
The promotion of excessive drinking.
Emptying of churches.
An unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime.
Dependency on the state or state benefits.
Control and dumbing down of media.
Encouraging the breakdown of the family.
To some extent, all of these suggestions have been implemented in modern America.
The Frankfurt School was wildly popular among the counter cultural movement of the 1960s. In fact, the term "Make Love Not War" was coined by a Frankfurt School theorist by the name of Herbert Marcuse.
Conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart wrote of Herbert Marcuse's agenda:
"[While] Marcuse... saw the third world's 'anti-colonial' movements as evidence that Marx was right - he recognized that in the United States there would be no such uprising by the working class. He therefore needed a different set of interest groups to tear down capitalism using his critical theory. And he found those groups in the racial, ethnic, and sexual groups that hated the old order. These victimized interest groups rightly opposed all the beauties of Western civilization 'with all the defiance, and the hatred, and the joy of rebellious victims, defining their own humanity against the definitions of the masters.'
Marcuse’s mission was to dismantle American society by using diversity and ‘multiculturalism’ as crowbars with which to pry the structure apart, piece by piece. He wanted to set blacks in opposition to whites, set all ‘victim groups’ in opposition to the society at large. Marcuse’s theory of victim groups as the new proletariat, combined with Horkheimer’s critical theory, found an outlet in academia, where it became the basis for the post-structural movement–Gender Studies, LGBT/’Queer’ Studies, African-American Studies, Chicano Studies, etc. All of these ‘Blank Studies’ brazenly describe their mission as tearing down traditional Judeo-Christian values and the accepted traditions of Western culture, and placing in their stead a moral relativism that equates all cultures and all philosophies–except for Western civilization, culture, and philosophy, which are ‘exploitative’ and 'bad.'"The invention of "racism offenses" was one component of a broader strategy to destroy Western Civilization and undermine Christianity.
Marcuse proscribed what is called "repressive tolerance." It is used by progressive leftists today to argue conservatives are "intolerant" while they themselves are hypocritically and simultaneously intolerant of any conservative opinion.
As Mercuse said in 1968:
"...I suggested in 'Repressive Tolerance' the practice of discriminating tolerance in an inverse direction, as a means of shifting the balance between Right and Left by restraining the liberty of the Right... Tolerance would be restricted with respect to movements of a demonstrably aggressive or destructive character... Such discrimination would also be applied to movements opposing the extension of social legislation to the poor, weak, disabled. As against the virulent denunciations that such a policy would do away with the sacred liberalistic principle of equality for 'the other side', I maintain that there are issues where either there is no 'other side' in any more than a formalistic sense, or where 'the other side' is demonstrably 'regressive' and impedes possible improvement of the human condition. To tolerate propaganda for inhumanity vitiates the goals not only of liberalism but of every progressive political philosophy."In other words, all conservative traditional beliefs are "regressive" and "inhumane" and should be regarded as intolerable for discussion.
In this way, everything that suggests racial consciousness on the part of whites is now condemned as intolerable "racism." But because racial consciousness on the part of "oppressed" minorities (like blacks and Mexicans) furthered Marcuse's social revolution to overthrown Western civilization they were to be accepted and celebrated.
This explains why blacks can organize the Congressional Black Caucus and NAACP, but a "Congressional White Caucus" would be condemned as racist and intolerable.
Racism is a social technology applied to whites with the intention of disgracing them into artificially elevating minority groups. These groups will then undermine Christian civilization from within and lead to a Marxist socialist state.
Racism was created in the same way that "homophobia" is now being constructed to dismiss and marginalize those who oppose gay marriage.
Every technology is created by the combination of different resources and elements. What is racism composed of?
It appears "racism" was created by connecting the sin of personal hatred with the natural practice of stereotyping to create the idea of "mass hatred" (the view that one can hate a whole group of people separate from the hatred of its individual parts).
The idea of "mass hatred" may have its origin in the Marxist concept of bourgeois oppression of the proletariat.
"Mass hatred" was retroactively and selectively applied to various ideas and people who supported the traditional structure of free Christian civilization.
For example, the founding fathers of the United States are now slandered as having mass hated the black race by dehumanizing them (3/5ths compromise, slavery, etc.), Christians are viewed as having mass hated minorities in the third world (Spanish conquest of Aztecs, colonization of Africa, etc.), the Crusades, which saved Europe from Islamic invasion, are viewed as the mass hatred of Muslims.
By combining these supposed instances of mass hatred with racialism (the view that race is real) leftists have invented "racism."
This origin explains why today's liberals label apparently unrelated instances of conservatism as "racist." For example: opposition to a government takeover of healthcare, opposition to gay marriage, a border wall with Mexico, and voter ID laws.
The concept of racism is elastic in this way because it was created arbitrarily for the sole purpose of destroying conservative society.
Subconsciously, liberals have internalized the use of racism as a tool against Western Civilization, and thus they immediately think to call something "racist" simply because it supports the traditional social order.
