Origin of Socialist Identity Politics
Often called Cultural Marxism, the word Marxism is a loaded term I'd rather avoid using it. Because socialism has been remapped into racial issues and away from economics and class, I think the better term is racialist socialism. See Critical Race Theory is Irrational.
Identity politics was a weapon of divide-and-conquer. Part of the effort was convince the various groups the world was terrible. They created victim classes. The reason for terrible world was the dominant group "exploited" in some manner the assorted self-proclaimed victim classes.
This a devolved into outright racism. The Democrat Party is responsible for the absurdity. Their leaders now face a party rife with Muslim hate groups (Nation of Islam, Muslim Brotherhood) and general anti-Semites, along with anti-white racism.
In the past racial socialism has been called Nazism. Nazism is pure racial socialism, fascism not always. Fascism as I defined it was Mussolini. Mussolini and his fascism wasn't racist, anti-Semitic, or genocidal.
I'll use the term cultural deconstruction. This is simply attacking every facet of the culture from Rule of Law, to merit, to reason, science, and empiricism as being an illusion. Gender, race, biology, etc. are also illusions.
Progressives believe they have special insights and secret knowledge the rest of us fail to see. See Progressive Gnosticism
They concoct the idea of "social construct" to delegitimize aspects of reality they seek to overthrow or have to deny. The real world is an illusion.
This thinking is also called post-modernism another ill-defined term. Modernism being enlightenment rationalism as the basis of truth. I will use anti-reason which is it's real meaning - a rejection of Enlightenment reason. A rejection of the reality around us for some manufactured spiritual moral reality.
Anti-reason is the main component of cultural deconstruction. This originates with a collection of mostly Marxist German Jews better known as the Frankfurt School. Later this was added to in the 1970s with a collection of French academics - with often Marxist leanings.
Anti-reason, cultural deconstruction, and identity racialism are the Trinity of regressive liberal thought. It is the basis of Social Justice. Social justice posits one's worth, success, or failure is based on group identity - pure racism.
Socialism always leads to tyranny. Look at the "democratic" socialism of Venezuela and Zimbabwe that have left millions starving.
Socialism in the economic sense is totally discredited. The vast majority of whites in particular not indoctrinated in elite colleges just won't buy into it. That's why so many affluent college educated people support policies that if totally implemented are detrimental to their very welfare.
Because tradition still holds sway over most Americans the racial socialists that infest our elite universities indoctrinate many of their students into a new type of thinking. This is done by destroying any cultural glue these potential "useful idiots" may have had and then filling in their empty heads.
They have millions of deluded white students preaching their own genocide. They are indoctrinated into self-hatred.
It later descended into outright racism with the addition of critical race theory. In some cases racism and hatred towards their own race - which they are convinced doesn't exist.
Dr. Douglas Kellner Ph.D. of UCLA wrote Cultural Marxism and Cultural Studies and while somewhat long and boring got to the heart of what cultural Marxism (and socialist racism) really was. While previous Marxists focused on economics and politics, cultural deconstruction as seen with the so-called Frankfurt School focused on destroying the culture. This creates mental cripples more easily manipulated. One of the most prominent was Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci:
In Gramsci's conception, societies maintained their stability through a combination of "domination," or force, and "hegemony," defined as consent to "intellectual and moral leadership." ...
Gramsci defined ideology as the ruling ideas which present the "social cement" that unifies and holds together the established social order. He described his own "philosophy of praxis" as a mode of thought opposed to ideology, which includes, among other things, a critical analysis of ruling ideas.
In "Cultural Themes: Ideological Material" (1985), Gramsci notes that in his day the press was the dominant instrument of producing ideological legitimation of the existing institutions and social order, but that many other institutions such as the church, schools, and different associations and groups also played a role.
He called for sustained critique (attack from the inside) of these institutions and the ideologies that legitimate them, accompanied by creation of counter institutions and ideas that would produce alternatives to the existing system.
One of the base assumptions of Marx was a capitalist society would be unstable and fall apart under its own weight. The workers would rise up and destroy the system. The only problem for the Marxist cult is few of the people were interested because things overall got far better than worse. Only where a small ruthless groups could grab power such as in Russia could the Marxists win.
In Hungary the Communist Party of Hungary, led by Bela Kun seized power in 1919 but was short lived as it was rejected by the people. Bela Kun would later be executed by Stalin. The Spartacists or German communists, led by Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht in Germany, met a similar fate and were crushed. Nowhere could the communists win the hearts of the people in any number while the masses later supported the heretical socialism of the fascists.
Unfortunately radical Jews often led these efforts feeding already widespread anti-Semitism. Most Jews in Russia were also ruined by communism. This created a highly destructive group of self-hating Jews bent on destroying Western culture. Enter the Frankfurt School.
Communist intellectuals were frustrated as to how to convince the masses that communism really was good for them. They searched for the answer why they couldn't sell it. They came to the conclusion the problem was mental - the masses were mentally attached to their culture Marxism sought to destroy. The so-called Frankfurt School was founded by a group of wealthy communist Jews. There goal to study this problem and find solutions based on psychology.
Note that during World War II the Frankfurt School (also called Institute for Social Research) was moved to Columbia University. This was because almost its entire staff was Jewish and communist. This is how this poison became so entrenched in our colleges.
Note Albert Einstein was also a Jewish communist.
"Gramsci was one of the most important Marxist thinkers in the 20th century. His writings are heavily concerned with the analysis of culture and political leadership and he is notable as a highly original thinker within modern European thought. He is renowned for his theory of cultural hegemony, which describes how states use cultural institutions to maintain power in a capitalist society." (Wiki)
So the Cultural Marxist simply destroys the cultural institutions and traditions that bind a society together as opposed to destroying the economy and nation outright. Family, church, and all tradition was be to be destroyed in the hope that the social chaos would help foster revolution.
The idea is to create so much misery and chaos communism/socialism can gain power.
Cultural Marxism as this is called is totally entrenched in academia. This destructive ideology permeates those whose education is a product of our elite colleges: law, public education, media, government at all levels, even churches and seminaries. Achievement is attacked under affirmative action while free speech is suppressed by political correctness.
The family is all but destroyed and discouraged while the whole institution is being turned into a joke with homosexual marriage. Homosexual pedophiles and the abuse of little boys is used to attack the Catholic Church by the same people demanding homosexuals become Scout masters with the Boy Scouts.
Here is the origins of nonsense such as women's studies, Latino studies, and African American studies which only serve to radicalize the student and indoctrinate them into Neo-Marxism. Many of the 1960s violent leftwing revolutionaries are today tenured college professors.

Deconstruction is one tool of the Cultural Marxists used to attack the system. The Free Online Dictionary defines 'deconstruction' as the invention of French philosopher Jacques Derrida:
A philosophical movement and theory of literary criticism that questions traditional assumptions about certainty, identity, and truth; asserts that words can only refer to other words; and attempts to demonstrate how statements about any text subvert their own meanings: "In deconstruction, the critic claims there is no meaning to be found in the actual text, but only in the various, often mutually irreconcilable, 'virtual texts' constructed by readers in their search for meaning" (Rebecca Goldstein).
Jacques Derrida was a communist. This has been used by campus Marxists to simply tear the fabric of Western Society apart. There is no meaning, nothing is certain, and evidence and facts hide deeper truths not evident to rational thought or empirical proof.
Technology, empirical science, reason, equality of opportunity, etc. are seen as tools of oppression by the capitalist class morphed into white people.
But how to destroy white human beings and claim any form of humanity? Race now becomes a social construct - it doesn't exist. It is an illusion.
So they use the term "whiteness' to dehumanize their targets. We are not destroy people but a racist social construct.
They can't achieve the economic Marxism they so crave, so we have developed a system of cultural Marxism or racial socialism. Under the fantasy of deconstruction, racism exists even when there is no evidence of it in particular with "whiteness".
This same irrationalism has now been morphed into climate justice. Rich western white people destroyed the climate with the evil technology used by evil capitalists. We now owe non-whites across the globe trillions in reparations. Now we have true global racial socialism.
It is time to be aware of just cunning these people really are. They dominate too much of the elite culture. If not stopped more death and chaos will result.
The vast majority of upper class self-hating whites take their rage out on lower income whites. It is like Jews leading the Holocaust.
