Skip to comments.Is old-fashioned Marxist class warfare at work in America’s media?
Posted on 06/17/2020 6:29:24 AM PDT by MtnClimber
The fact that America, unlike Europes class-based societies, has always had economic mobility, has meant that pure Marxism, which is predicated on class warfare, hasnt managed to take root here. Instead, Americas hardcore leftists eventually realized that Americas Achilles heel isnt class; its race.
Using race as the spearpoint, leftists have managed to spur Americas limousine liberals into an orgy of apology. Meanwhile, corporations staffed with indoctrinated college graduates send out virtue-signaling messages backed with big bucks, not just because theyre true believers but in a desperate attempt to buy off looters and McCarthyites.
It turns out, though, that there is one industry in America that is still a bastion of old-fashioned economic and class distinction, and thats the American media. To its credit, The New York Times published an article by Ben Smith (founder of Buzzfeed) describing how the media magnates live, something that spurs genuine class envy amongst their often poorly-paid employees.
The article opens by describing the Hamptons, where New Yorks media upper class has vacation homes. This is where many New York media magnates retreated when the Wuhan Virus made Manhattan just too unpleasant for them. Smith tells of a world in which it costs $400,000 to join a golf club, where parties for a few dozen friends can cost tens of thousands of dollars, and where people buy million dollar plus yachts to assuage their childrens boredom during the viruss enforced downtime.

You know it’s a panic constantly ignited with misinformation from the media when the economy is open in all states and THE MEDIA IS STILL COWERING IN THEIR BASEMENT STUDIOS trying to scare people into thinking it’s unsafe to get back to work.
Antifa rioting and calling the USA fascist when it is their ideology that has turned whites into the new Jews. They are using the race hatred of Hitler while calling others what they are guilty of doing.
Not new-the US media was bought and paid-for, lock-stock-and-anus, long ago
No. It is the identity warfare borrowed from the neo-Marxists of the Frankfurt school (Foucault, Deleuze, Althusser).
They are angry because the truth you speak contradicts the lie they live.
Most of what you think of as Antifa's rank and file are white.
16 Jun: Climate Depot: Lund University academic (Andreas Malm): To Halt Climate Change, We Need an Ecological Leninism
(Andreas Malm is in the human ecology division at Lund University, Sweden. He is the author of Fossil Capital: The Rise of Steam Power and the Roots of Global Warming, out soon from Verso Books)
Andreas Malm is in the human ecology division at Lund University: “The whole strategic direction of Lenin after 1914 was to turn World War I into a fatal blow against capitalism. This is precisely the same strategic orientation we must embrace today and this is what I mean by ecological Leninism. We must find a way of turning the environmental crisis into a crisis for fossil capital itself.” ...
“There was a moment in March 2020 when many of us in the climate justice movement felt a degree of surprise to find that governments in Europe and elsewhere were prepared to basically shut down their entire economies in an effort to contain the pandemic. This is striking, given that the same states had never contemplated undertaking any kind of intervention in the economy for the sake of the climate crisis.”
COVID ‘is an opportunity”: “This is an opportunity in the sense that it has brought about a temporary cessation of many of the most environmentally damaging activities, mass aviation has been suspended, carbon emissions have declined, fossil fuels are remaining in the ground, and so on. This is a moment where we can say to governments: If you were able to intervene to protect us from the virus, you can intervene to protect us from the climate crisis as well, the implications of which are much worse. The current juncture therefore provides us with an opportunity to oppose the return to business as usual, to push for the transformation of the global economy and the launch of something like a Green New Deal.”...
“State power should definitely be used to prevent luxury emissions perpetrated by the rich private jets should be banned outright, as should SUVs and other vehicles that consume completely indefensible amounts of fuel. This is low-hanging fruit for the climate justice movement, as these sources of emissions are among the least socially necessary.” ...
“Some forms of consumption will indeed have to be limited or abolished outright this cannot be done through markets or appeals to ethical consumption, but only through state regulation.” ...
In the 21st century, identity has replaced class. The 21 century bourgeois are oppressor classes and the proletariat are victim/oppressed classes.
Media failed to help the rigging in the last election on who will be president and the democrats have ran out of fake stories it looks like they will fail this election too.
Bolsheviks, communists, socialists they/Antifa/BLM/DNC are and highly organized from the top to middle. All the masses they drive before them, to steal, kill and destroy.
These are all of the same religion as Babylon, hence just different versions of the same rebellion. Man set free of YHVH’s (God) rules and instruction.
All YHVH’s children know how this ends and the end is coming much faster than mere academics, experts, conservatives or religious people know. YHVH doesn’t want a religion, He will have a kingdom for His family.
The Left is essentially national socialism for "indigenous pipples" and "people of color." They seem to actually believe that melanin has magical properties.
All of these ilk, wait eagerly for the coming of their god, Nimrod; aka a multitude of names (eg. Baal), more popularly anti-Christ. However, a better translation would be replacement-Christ or substitute-Christ. The one who pretends to be our savior...
