Death of the West: Bill Lind on Cultural Marxism and the Frankfurt School

This one’s worth revisiting.  I’ve yet to find a better presentation on cultural Marxism than this one.  Here Bill Lind deconstructs the deconstructionists of the Frankfurt School, explaining their “critical theory” and exposing their efforts to translate economic Marxism into cultural terms.  There is a civil war for the soul of the West.  It is a cold war for our culture.  The Left has defined the rules by which this war will be fought, and it is called political correctness.  I don’t believe we will kindly oblige them.

The Anti-Israel Double Standard Explained

Ever wondered why Israel is always in the news, and why the U.N. has condemned this tiny country more than it has all the tyrannies of the world combined?  It’s pretty obvious why the Arabs hate Israel.  They hate Israel because of the Jews.  But why does the Left also treat this tiny Jewish state as an international pariah?  Look no further than this little presentation below for the answer.

Suicide of a Superpower, Decline of a civilization

Somebody out there gets it.  Via Drudge, excerpts from Pat Buchanan’s explosive new book.  My copy is already on order.

“As the faith that gave birth to the West is dying in the West, peoples of European descent from the steppes of Russia to the coast of California have begun to die out, as the Third World treks north to claim the estate.  The last decade provided corroboration if not conclusive proof that we are in the Indian Summer of our civilization.”

“America is disintegrating. The centrifugal forces pulling us apart are growing inexorably. What unites us is dissolving. And this is true of Western Civilization….Meanwhile, the state is failing in its most fundamental duties. It is no longer able to defend our borders, balance our budgets, or win our wars.”

Chapter 1: The Passing of a Superpower

“We have accepted today the existence in perpetuity of a permanent underclass of scores of millions who cannot cope and must be carried by society — fed, clothed, housed, tutored, medicated at taxpayer’s expense their entire lives. We have a dependent nation the size of Spain in our independent America. We have a new division in our country, those who pay a double or triple fare, and those who ride forever free.”

Chapter 2. The End of Christian America

If [Christopher] Dawson is correct, the drive to de-Christianize America, to purge Christianity from the public square, public schools and public life, will prove culturally and socially suicidal for the nation.

“The last consequence of a dying Christianity is a dying people. Not one post-Christian nation has a birth rate sufficient to keep it alive….The death of European Christianity means the disappearance of the European tribe, a prospect visible in the demographic statistics of every Western nation.”

Chapter 3. The Crisis of Catholicism

“Half a century on, the disaster is manifest. The robust and confident Church of 1958 no longer exists. Catholic colleges and universities remain Catholic in name only. Parochial schools and high schools are closing as rapidly as they opened in the 1950s. The numbers of nuns, priests and seminarians have fallen dramatically. Mass attendance is a third of what it was. From the former Speaker of the House to the Vice President, Catholic politicians openly support abortion on demand.”

“How can Notre Dame credibly teach that all innocent life is sacred, and then honor a president committed to ensuring that a woman’s right to end the life of her innocent child remains sacrosanct?”

Chapter 4. The End of White America

“[W]hite America is an endangered species. By 2020, whites over 65 will out-number those 17 and under. Deaths will exceed births. The white population will begin to shrink and, should present birth rates persist, slowly disappear.”

“Mexico is moving north. Ethnically, linguistically and culturally, the verdict of 1848 is being over-turned. Will this Mexican nation within a nation advance the goals of the Constitution — to “insure domestic tranquility” and ‘make us a more perfect union’? Or have we imperiled our union?” (Page 134)

Chapter 5. Demographic Winter

“Peoples of European descent are not only in a relative but a real decline. They are aging, dying, disappearing. This is the existential crisis of the West.” (Page 166)

“Not any Iranian weapon of mass destruction but demography is the existential crisis Israel faces….By mid-century…Palestinians west of the Jordan river will out-number Jews 2-1. Add Palestinians in Jordan, it is 3-1.”

“In a startling development of history, Russia’s population has fallen from 148 million in 1991 to 140 million today and is projected to plunge to 116 million by 2050, a loss of 32 million Russians in six decades.”

Chapter 6. Equality Vs. Freedom

“Those who would change society begin by changing the meaning of words. At Howard University, LBJ changed the meaning of equality from the attainable — an end to segregation and a legislated equality of rights for African-Americans — to the impossible: a socialist utopia.”

“Where equality is enthroned, freedom is extinguished. The rise of the egalitarian society means the death of the free society.”

“A time for truth. As most kids do not have the athletic ability to play high school sports, or the musical ability to play in the band, or the verbal ability to excel in debate, not every child has the academic ability to do high school work. No two children are created equal, not even identical twins. The family is the incubator of inequality and God its author.”

Chapter 7. The Diversity Cult

“The non-Europeanization of America is heartening news of an almost transcendental quality,” Wattenberg trilled.4 Yet, one wonders: What kind of man looks with transcendental joy to a day when the people among whom he was raised have become a minority in a nation where the majority rules?”

“Historians will look back in stupor at 20th and 21st century Americans who believed the magnificent republic they inherited would be enriched by bringing in scores of millions from the failed states of the Third World.”

Chapter 8: The Triumph Of Tribalism

America’s war of revenge against Japan was a race war. Newsreels, movies, magazines, comic books, headlines treated “Japs” as a repulsive race whose extermination would benefit mankind….Only well after the war was over was it re-branded a war to bring the blessings of democracy to…Japan.

We may deny the existence of ethnonationalism, detest it, condemn it. But this creator and destroyer of empires and nations is a force infinitely more powerful than globalism, for it engages the heart. Men will die for it. Religion, race, culture and tribe are the four horsemen of the coming apocalypse.

Chapter 9. ‘The White Party’

“Through its support of mass immigration, its paralysis in power to prevent 12-20 million illegal aliens from entering and staying, its failure to address the “anchor-baby” issue, the Republican Party has birthed a new electorate that will send it the way of the Whigs.”

Chapter 10: The Long Retreat

“We borrow from Europe to defend Europe. We borrow from the Gulf states to defend the Gulf states. We borrow from Japan to defend Japan. Is it not a symptom of senility to be borrowing from the world so we can defend the world?”

“Are vital U.S. interests more imperiled by what happens in Iraq where were have 50,000 troops, or Afghanistan where we have 100,000, or South Korea where we have 28,000 — or by what is happening on our border with Mexico?…What does it profit America if we save Anbar and lose Arizona?”

Chapter 11: The Last Chance

“We are trying to create a nation that has never before existed, of all the races, tribes, cultures and creeds of Earth, where all are equal. In this utopian drive for the perfect society of our dreams we are killing the real country we inherited — the best and greatest country on earth.”

Group Think, Leftist liturgy, Sex With Animals

Filed under: Capitalism, marxism — Tags: — Jesusland @ 18:15

Yeah, these people are EXACTLY like the Tea Party, right Joe?

“You Can Have Sex With Animals”

These people are freaking weirdos.

These guys aren’t in church, but here’s more proof Liberalism is a religion.  Listen to the way they mindlessly parrot him.  The speaker  recites his dogma, and his Leftist drones repeat on faith, just like a liturgy.  Reminds me of church.  But at least in church we knew what the pastor/speaker was going to recite, and then we’d respond.  As members of that church we had already agreed beforehand on a statement of faith.  But these pod people just repeat after him, blindly, cult like, even when he’s just spouting puerile and obscene inanities.  What’s worse is the speaker had no doubt his “have sex with animals” comment would be a big hit with this group, and they seem to agree!  Blows my mind that once upon a time I would have thought it fun and cool to rub elbows with this secular progressive mob.

I don’t like to make fun of a group of people based on their fringe elements, but these people aren’t this group’s fringe, this is secular progressivism.  And what do these people ultimately WANT?  I still haven’t a clue!  Though I suspect communism.  I am open to correction if any of them would like to pipe in and set the record straight.

Swiss Member of Parliament says Enough! to Islamization

Wow, this guy dispenses with the politically correct niceties and lowers the boom on the multiculturalists.   What Islam could not accomplish through almost a millennium of war and Jihad, it means to accomplish peacefully and non-violently through mass immigration and cultural Islamization of the West.  If we are stupid enough to let them do it, then perhaps we deserve what comes.

“Our political elites bend their neck before a certain religious dogma which is completely alien to our intellectual history, our values and rule of law.”

Sure Joe, the “Occupy” protests are just like the Tea Party.  Uh huh.

If they aren’t getting arrested for storming police lines, or defecating on cop cars, or vandalizing police property, or attacking the Air and Space museum, they’re pulling weird collectivist, New Age crap like this!  Watch the whole thing.  That is some bizarre shyte right there.   But what do the kooks WANT, you ask?  I still haven’t the slightest clue.  lol

Cultural Marxism in the classrooms

The cultural marxists are on the move.  Let’s take a little peak inside their virulently anti-Christian sec prog minds, shall we?

Teacher penalizes students for saying “bless you”

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) — A Northern California teacher says he doesn’t want to hear a common courtesy in his classroom. He’s even lowering students’ grades if they say “bless you” after someone sneezes. Steve Cuckovich says the practice is disrespectful and disruptive. He’s banned saying “bless you” in his high school health class in Vacaville. He even knocked 25 points from one student’s grade for saying the phrase in class. Cuckovich says the policy has nothing to do with religion, but says the phrase is just a outdated practice and disrupts class time. “When you sneezed in the old days, they thought you were dispelling evil spirits out of your body,” Cuckovich said. “So they were saying, ‘God bless you’ for getting rid of evil spirits. But today, I said what you’re doing doesn’t really make any sense anymore.” After parents complained about students losing points for saying “bless you”, Cuckovich says he decided to stop the practice. However, the teacher says he will just find another way to discipline students for saying “bless you” in class.

Notice how the loon tries to explain his reasoning in order to justify himself in a “rational” way.  But none of it explains his own deeply visceral response about something so harmless and irrelevant.  That alone gives him away.

Some people say Liberalism is a mental disorder.  But it’s actually a religion, and all religions seem totally wack to outsiders looking in.  They hide their militantly secular religion behind a mantra of “separation of church and state”, but their deepest desire is to remove any mention, nay memory, of God from society altogether.  The examples are countless.

Incidents like these illustrate just how deeply the cultural marxists have infiltrated our institutions in their quest to gut our judeo-christian culture from the inside out.  Without going into any of the 1st amendment issues raised by this kind of PC run amuck, it further reveals just how interrelated the Gay Agenda (i.e., the normalization of homosexuality) is related to this war on Christianity and traditional values:

School Punishes Boy for Opposing Homosexuality

An honors student in Fort Worth, Texas, was sent to the principal’s office and punished for telling a classmate that he believes homosexuality is wrong.  Holly Pope said she was “absolutely stunned” when she received a telephone call from an assistant principal at Western Hills High School informing her that her son, Dakota Ary, had been sent to in-school suspension.  “Dakota is a very well-grounded 14-year-old,” she told Fox News Radio noting that her son is an honors student, plays on the football team and is active in his church youth group. “He’s been in church his whole life and he’s been taught to stand up for what he believes.”  And that’s what got him in trouble.

Dakota was in a German class at the high school when the conversation shifted to religion and homosexuality in Germany. At some point during the conversation, he turned to a friend and said that he was a Christian and “being a homosexual is wrong.”  “It wasn’t directed to anyone except my friend who was sitting behind me,” Dakota told Fox. “I guess [the teacher] heard me. He started yelling. He told me he was going to write me an infraction and send me to the office.”

Dakota was sentenced to one day in-school suspension – and two days of full suspension. His mother was flabbergasted, noting that her son had a spotless record, was an honor student, volunteered at his church and played on the school football team.  Officials at the high school did not return calls for comment. However, the Fort Worth Independent School District issued a statement that read:

Krause called the incident “mind blowing” and said the teacher had frequently brought homosexuality into ninth grade classroom discussions.  “There has been a history with this teacher in the class regarding homosexual topics,” Krause said. “The teacher had posted a picture of two men kissing on a wall that offended some of the students.”  Krause said the picture was posted on the teacher’s “world wall.”  “He told the students this is happening all over the world and you need to accept the fact that homosexuality is just part of our culture now,” Krause said.

Joe Biden calls Occupy Wall Street RACIST

Filed under: Media Bias, Tea Party — Tags: — Jesusland @ 19:32

Joe Biden a Teabbagger symp?

Joe Biden must be calling Occupy Wall Street racist if he’s comparing them to those RACIST, ANGRY, latently VIOLENT Teabaggers.

Biden likens Occupy Wall Street to tea party

Vice President Joe Biden likened the Occupy Wall Street movement to the tea party at a forum in Washington on Thursday, saying both were driven by middle-class frustration with government bailouts of corporate America.

“What is the core of that protest, and why is it increasing in terms of the people its attracting? The core is that the bargain has been breached with the American people. The core is that the American people do not think the system is fair or on the level,” Biden said at forum sponsored by the Atlantic magazine and the Aspen Institute at the Newseum in Washington.

“There’s a lot in common with the tea party,” Biden said. “The tea party started why? TARP. They thought it was unfair we were bailing out the big guys.”  He cited Bank of American’s new monthly $5 debit card fee as a symbol of public unease.

“Banks are part of the problem in the economy,” he said. “The American people know — they don’t guess, they know — the reason the CEO of the Bank of America, or anybody in that business, is in the business is because they, that guy making 50,000 bucks bailed him out, bailed him out. Put his financial security on the line when his government said we’re gonna come up with a trillion-plus dollars to bail him out.”

Of Bank of America, Biden said, “At a minimum, they are incredibly tone deaf. At a minimum. At a maximum, they are not paying their fair share of the bargain here. And middle-class people are getting killed.”  The vice president’s remarks came shortly before President Obama, at a news conference, was also asked about the progressive protests, which began in New York but have since spread to other cities.

“I think it expresses the frustrations the American people feel, that we had the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression, huge collateral damage all throughout the country … and yet you’re still seeing some of the same folks who acted irresponsibly trying to fight efforts to crack down on the abusive practices that got us into this in the first place,” Obama said.

A Leftist self-reveal here.  When Joe Biden compares the Wall Street protesters to the Tea Party he is basically turning his back on 3 years of hate-filled Democrat narrative about The Tea Party.  He is essentially legitimizing them.  But why?  Joe Biden loves those hippie campers on Wall Street.  And he wants the American people to get behind them too.  He believes they can do for the Democrats in 2012 what the Tea Party did for the GOP in 2010.  Dems hope this can energize their base.  This “endorsement” reveals, that despite the hateful lies and slander his people have been throwing at the Tea Party for the last 3 years, and despite the Liberal media’s attempts to destroy them with slanderous poison about “racism,” that they are legit.  They aren’t the fringy knit caps and alpaca sweater-wearing outliers you’ll see at most Leftist protests who have to be advised by their organizers to “dress normal” lest they alienate mainstream America.  The Tea Party is as Middle-American a social movement as they come.  As genuine a grassroots movement the likes of which this country has not seen since, well, the Boston Tea Party.  Joe Biden is tacitly acknowledging that fact by comparing this mob of bongo-players to the Tea Party hoping some of that mojo will rub off on them.

The Gender Benders: Google+ offers Male, Female, and “Other”

A world with no gender

I learned something new today: PGP.  Preferred Gender Pronoun.  It’s for those days when you wake up in the morning and you aren’t sure whether you want to be a boy or girl.  Which is where the new social networking site Google+ comes in handy.  Aren’t sure what your sex is?  Simply sign in as “Other”.  That’s choice!  That’s freedom!  No limits baby!  From the New York Times:

The Freedom to Choose Your Pronoun

A FEW weeks ago, Katy Butler, 16, updated her status on Facebook with an enthusiastic shout-out for Google+, the social network’s latest rival. “Oh my God Google! I love it! I was signing up for Google+ and they asked me my gender and the choices were male, female or OTHER!!!!! Oh ya Google!”  Katy, a high school junior in Ann Arbor, Mich., first encountered “other” as a gender option at a meeting of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning and Allies (LGBTQQA) in seventh grade. “For those of us in the nonconforming gender community, it is great to see Google make the option more mainstream,” she said.

Though Google created the “other” option for privacy reasons rather than as a transgender choice, young supporters of preferred gender pronouns (or P.G.P.’s as they are called) could not help but rejoice. Katy is one of a growing number of high school and college students who are questioning the gender roles society assigns individuals simply because they have been born male or female.  “You have to understand, this has nothing to do with your sexuality and everything to do with who you feel like inside,” Katy said, explaining that at the start of every LGBTQQA meeting, participants are first asked if they would like to share their P.G.P.’s. “Mine are ‘she,’ ‘her’ and ‘hers’ and sometimes ‘they,’ ‘them’ and ‘theirs.’ ”

P.G.P.’s can change as often as one likes. If the pronouns in the dictionary don’t suffice, there are numerous made-up ones now in use, including “ze,” “hir” and “hirs,” words that connote both genders because, as Katy explained, “Maybe one day you wake up and feel more like a boy.”  Teenagers are by nature prone to rebellion against adult conventions, and as the gender nonconformity movement gains momentum among young people, “it is about rejecting the boxes adults try to put kids in by assuming their sexual identity labels their personal identity,” said Dr. Ritch C. Savin-Williams, director of the Cornell University Sex and Gender Lab. “These teens are fighting the idea that your equipment defines what it means for you to be a boy or girl. They are saying: ‘You don’t know me by looking at me. Assume nothing.’ ”

Australia last month issued new passport guidelines allowing citizens to give their official gender as male, female or indeterminate. In Britain, the Home Office is also considering a third gender category on passports, according to reports.  In the United States, the transgender movement is beginning to find advocates in high schools. There are now nearly 5,000 Gay-Straight Alliance Clubs, high school organizations offering support to teenagers, registered with the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, a national organization whose mission is “to assure that each member of every school community is valued and respected regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.”

“More students today than ever are thinking about what gender means and are using this language to get away from masculine and feminine gender assumptions,” said Eliza Byard, the network’s executive director.  Some colleges, too, are starting to adopt nongender language.  Last month, students at Pomona College in Claremont, Calif., voted to edit the student constitution so that it contains only gender-neutral language. And in 2009, the University of Michigan Student Assembly passed a resolution eliminating gender-specific pronouns from the Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities.

And they say Big Business is conservative?  Really???  lol  They aren’t even Republican, let alone conservative.

Here we have yet more proof that Leftism is the greatest threat to Western civilization since the bubonic plague.  Everything it promotes, it seems, take us one step closer to cultural oblivion.  Today’s example of their suicidal madness is the war the Left is waging on gender identity.  I’m not talking about the mere tinkering around the edges which was the shift in gender roles starting in the 70s.  You know, that women get to have a career and men help around the house.  Radical stuff back in the 70s, but how quaint that all seems today.  No sir, cutting edge 21st century Leftism is concerned with obliterating the very notion of gender itself.

The Left despises “distinctions”.  You see this contempt in their moral relativism which rejects absolutes, blurring the lines between good and evil (even rejecting the very notion of “evil”).  Distinctions, they believe, divide people and cause friction and strife.  The distinctions we see between nations must be eradicated because they cause conflicts and wars, and they imagine a world with no countries nor borders.  Gender distinctions oppress women and gays because these differences are the originator of gender roles and the “patriarchy”, so it too must be obliterated (which is ultimately why “gay marriage” is so heavily promoted even as they do everything in their power to undermine traditional marriage).  The Left doesn’t promote equality, it promotes sameness.

We often wonder what crazy kook cockamamie idea the Left will latch onto next after they win the battle for marriage. What will the Left declare as the next frontier of “progress”.  Polygamy?  Pedophilia?  Seems we now have the answer.  These are the same people, mind you, who seek to portray conservatives as “crazy” and “extremist” and “radical” because they want to protect and preserve the best of our Judeo-Christian civilization from these rapacious culture destroyers.  Could anything be more upside down?  I mean, wow.

And here the New York Times and Google, Inc.  (both Big Businesses) do their part to imagine a world with no sexes/genders.  This is the Left’s trajectory.  This is secular progressivism.  This is mainstream Liberalism today.

UPDATE:  And to further illustrate our point, Lefties celebrate gender bending as “art” here.

Violent Communist agitators march on Wall Street

The police have arrested hundreds of violent communist agitators at the Wall Street protests.

What, they aren’t communists driven by a hatred for capitalism, nor violent, you say?  Well I have the photographic evidence, here

CAPITALISM DOESN'T WORK

and here

CAPITALISM IS ORGANIZED CRIME

to prove that they are.

Just as the Tea Party was primarily motivated by racism because the Liberal media found a few offensive placards to highlight for their evening broadcasts, these rallies are communist.  Not Liberal, nor socialist, nor Democrat, mind you, but COMMUNIST.  You may therefore disregard whatever they have to say about the Wall Street fat cats.  Moreover, they are racist.  Yes, RACIST!  In the clip below we provide hard proof of this racism as they violently drive a BLACK Democrat congressman, Charles Rangel, from the streets.  Libs are so right, this really is a racist country!  Take particular notice of how they have to remind themselves it is a “peaceful” rally lest the violence spiral out of control.

Pay no attention to the fact, however, that nobody (least of all themselves) knows what these Mac-using, latte sipping hippies are protesting about, or even what they want done.  Protesting “greed” and “Wall Street” are not a set of demands that can be negotiated with or bargained for.

Rebel without a clue.

Leftist Crank calls Herman Cain (a black man) a racist! lol

There is nothing, it seems, that can immunize a Republican come election season against the Leftist race baiting.  Not even if he’s black!  Here Leftist activist and very angry black man Cornell Belcher accuses Herman Cain of being a racist because he believes blacks have been “brainwashed” into voting Democrat.

CORNELL BELCHER: What is the definition of “racism” or “bigotry”? It is in fact putting a blank statement on a whole group of people. And again, Anderson, I guarantee you, if I came on your program and said that all Jewish people were brainwashed, you wouldn’t invite me back on this — on CNN. I would not be back on CNN. I’m sure of that. There’s a double standard here. I think this is a teachable moment.

ARI FLEISCHER: Let me jump in. I’m not — I’m not going to dwell on this topic, but remember the question was about people being poisoned about a party. So there’s a presumption in the question also that just flows from the fact that 90 to 95 percent of African-Americans vote a certain way.  But when people start throwing the word “racism” around that’s when I end the conversation because you cannot have an intelligent conversation when people are accusing people in the public square of that. So I’m not even want to get into that topic.

Yes, there is a double standard here, Cornell, and it’s coming from you.

Leftists like this Cornell Belcher love to smear entire swathes of conservative blacks like Herman Cain as “Uncle Toms”, and that’s not considered racist. But if Herman Cain responds that blacks like this moron Belcher are “brainwashed”, that is a racist statement. Those are the rules of this Democrat race baiting blood sport.

Temporary marriages, Gay Liberation, and the “Patriarchy”

Until death do us part?

Yet more proof that everything the Left does advances the clock of civilizational collapse.  I only had to read the headline to instantly realize the Left’s fingerprints were all over this one.

Mexico mulls 2-year marriage

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexico City lawmakers want to help newlyweds avoid the hassle of divorce by giving them an easy exit strategy: temporary marriage licenses.  Leftists in the city’s assembly — who have already riled conservatives by legalizing gay marriage — proposed a reform to the civil code this week that would allow couples to decide on the length of their commitment, opting out of a lifetime.  The minimum marriage contract would be for two years and could be renewed if the couple stays happy. The contracts would include provisions on how children and property would be handled if the couple splits.  “The proposal is, when the two-year period is up, if the relationship is not stable or harmonious, the contract simply ends,” said Leonel Luna, the Mexico City assemblyman who co-authored the bill.

“You wouldn’t have to go through the tortuous process of divorce,” said Luna, from the leftist Party of the Democratic Revolution, which has the most seats in the 66-member chamber.  Luna says the proposed law is gaining support and he expects a vote by the end of this year.  Around half of Mexico City marriages end in divorce, usually in the first two years.  The bustling capital, one of the world’s largest cities, is much more liberal than the rest of the country, where the divorce rate is significantly lower although on the rise.

Abortion is legal in Mexico City, while the Supreme Court ruled this week to uphold state laws in Baja California that say life begins at conception.  Leftist Mayor Marcelo Ebrard, who angered the Catholic Church when he made Mexico City the first Latin American city to legalize gay marriage in late 2009, announced this month he would soon step down to run for president.  The church criticized the proposed change.  “This reform is absurd. It contradicts the nature of marriage,” said Hugo Valdemar, spokesman for the Mexican archdiocese. “It’s another one of these electoral theatrics the assembly tends to do that are irresponsible and immoral.”  The Church holds considerable sway in the country with the world’s second largest Catholic population after Brazil.

[.]

What "gay marriage" is ultimately about.

Hurray!  Divorce is even more hassle-free now.  So why are they doing this, you ask?  Because it promotes statism and the secular progressive value system.   This simultaneous promotion of gay marriage while undermining traditional marriage is all part of a larger plan in furtherance of their secular progressive utopia.  Leftism has always hated the institution of marriage as an instrument of oppression and the status quo.  They call it “the Patriarchy.”   Gay activist and atheist Martha C. Nussbaum puts it this way:

Gays and lesbians are a symbol, in much of the public imagination, for sex without reproduction, for the decoupling of marriage from commitment to raising a family in the traditional way, which has certainly been a male-dominated way. …The connection between recognition of gay unions and the erosion of traditional marriage is that if sex is thought to be available outside of the marriage bond, women will have fewer incentives to embark upon marriage and child rearing, and may not wish to do so if marriage continues to be a largely patriarchal and unequal institution.

Wow, that’s pretty blatant stuff.  You won’t often hear it so candidly put.  So it’s no coincidence that the same Mexican Leftists who legalized gay marriage in Mexico City are also behind this temporary idiocy.  And who suffers the consequences of these broken marriages of convenience in a country without a safety net such as Mexico?  Why, the children!  The children who then require the State to intervene as their surrogate daddy lest they end up on the streets and starve to death.  And if no such paternalistic state currently exists, why, then it shall be created!  See how they operate?  And now you know the ultimate reason why these Marxists are trying to destroy marriage and the “patriarchy.”

And of course, this is happening right under our noses but the dots aren’t being connected, so nobody even notices or cares.

UPDATE: Even the Huffington Post is now weighing in on this AWEMAZING idea!  And don’t neglect the comments section there which is always a pretty good barometer of just how far gone those people are.
