Uber-Hack Christopher Rufo reinforces Jordan Peterson’s Bête Noire cultural Marxism, renames it Critical Race Theory, and thus perpetuates an anti-Semitic theme – Slog
It basically boils down to this: Jordan peterson, the Canadian He-Man eater of raw red meat himself, re-boiled that old piece of cabbage that he called cultural Marxism. It is essentially an attack on the Frankfurt Schoolthe influence of what can generally be described as the rise of cultural studies at the end of the twentieth century in academic programs concerning literature, cinema, sociology, anthropology and politics. What the members of the Frankfurt School initiated during the Weimar Republic was the isolation of a branch of philosophy that has come to be known as critical theory. (Can you already see the missing word in Christophe Rufois now popular?)
A major influence on this movement of philosophical thought was, of course, Karl Marx, an economist who criticized the operations and ontology of 19th century capitalism in his key works. However, the founding and most prominent members of the Frankfurt School were left-wing Jewish intellectuals: Max Horkheimer (the father), Theodor W. Adorno (the son), and Walter Benjamin (the Holy Spirit). There was also Erich Fromm, Friedrich Pollock and Leo LÃ¶wenthal.
One of the main members was a philosopher who started out marxing Marxist economics with Heideggerian existentialism, Herbert Marcuse. He fled Nazi Germany because of his Jewish heritage and radical politics. (The Nazis threw the International Socialists and Communists into their death camps.) After World War II, the Cold War took shape in the United States as a pronounced attack on the perceived threat of unrepentant left-wing Jews. There was indeed a time in the United States when being a Jew and a Communist were considered one and the same. This kind of association was tolerated in the Red 1930s, but not in the McCarthy 1950s. If this is kept in mind, it won’t be hard to see why the only American Communists ever fried (or executed, to put it mildly) by the American government were Jews, Ethel and Julius Rosenberg.
It’s also not hard to see why Christopher Rufo (and please stop hitting me on Twitter) successfully boiled Jordan Peterson’s Boiled Cabbage as a Critical Breed Theory, which , at first glance, means that racism is systemic in the United States. .
Of New Yorkerrecent history of by Rufo:
If people were upset with the seminars, Rufo wanted them to notice the âcritical race theoryâ operating behind the curtain as well. Following the path taken through citations from jurists’ texts, Rufo thought he could detect the germ of their ideas in radical, often explicitly Marxist, critical theory texts of the 1968 generation (Crenshaw said that) it was a ‘red bait’ account of the origins of critical breed theory, which overlooked less conflicting influences such as Martin Luther King, Jr.) But Rufo believed he could detect just one. lineage, and that the same concepts and terms the employees of the city of Seattle, or the anti-racist seminars of the Sandia National Laboratories, were present half a century ago. âLook at Angela Davis, you see all the key terms,â Rufo said. Davis had been Herbert Marcuse’s doctoral student, and Rufo had read his writings from the late sixties to the mid-seventies.
The Angela Davis / Herbert Marcuse connection is pure Peterson. And it also recalls one of the key descriptions of cultural Marxism, which is even on Wikipedia: “It is a far-right anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that claims Western Marxism as the basis of continuing academic and intellectual efforts to subvert Western culture.”
Critical race theory picks up where cultural Marxism left off. This brings us directly back to the racist imagery of troublemaking Jews hating Europeans. It was this reading of Jewish intellectual culture that forced the Frankfurt school to flee Germany in the early 1930s and settle in New York. But now all this bad Jewish thought, which has taken hold in the United States, has been injected into academia through black scholars, whose queen is Angela Davis. It’s your poisonous Rufo, a Seattle product.
It’s not CRT. Rufo’s motives in this regard are quite suspect. The CRT is a framework for legal theorizing. Starting any conversation about the race you don’t like on CRT is like saying any invocation of * particles * is a reference to quantum mechanics, with just as much understanding …. pic.twitter.com/y9b0J0rqvH
