The Movement Behind The Extremists in America And Why You Should Care

Dale Yeager Blog

What do we now see? The Last Stages of Cultural Marxism

The American common sense public, that is the majority of non ideological citizens that just want to raise a family and/or live constructive lives, looks with astonishment at the so called left and what they perceive as their peculiar and or absurd ideas, including political correctness and a bevy of artificial grievances.

Instinctively they reject them and wonder how they came to gain such prominence. If you are doing your job you are not interested in terms such as Cultural Marxism and you can’t be blamed. It’s not a theme for common sense people but it has infected the American universities and found its way into societal mores and public policy. That is why you should know something about it. We will try to give you a succinct review of several decades of the history of this movement because one of its tenets is to go slow and unnoticed until the proper time arrives.

It started with Antonio Gramsci an Italian communist who in the 1920s returned from a visit to Stalin’s Russia convinced of two things. The proletarian revolution had never taken hold in the west or in Russia for that matter, and that soviet methods were not going to succeed in Italy.

Why? Because the proletarian class believed in patriotism, religion and the family. Patriotism defended the concept of nation state while communism wanted a world without frontiers united under one idea and one rule. Religion posited the concept of an after life and opposed communism’s atheistic earthly paradise. The family was the cradle where children learned patriotism, religion and respect for paternal authority. Communism wanted control of the children’s minds. They were the future new men and women.

For Gramsci these institutions produce “hegemony”. It is in this way, said Gramsci, that the ruling class maintains societal control. Marxist success requires a radical change of ideas and values.

Mussolini put Gramsci in jail where he died in 1937 but not before he had written 3,000 pages of essays and developed his theory of cultural hegemony. To turn the culture around he proposed several things the most important being:

a) The organic intellectual who would grow and work with the neighborhood and indoctrinate it. The community organizer of Saul Alinsky is simply its American version.

b) University intellectuals were to be recruited.

c) Figures of influence such as sportsmen, artists, scientists were to be gained for the cause even if they did not fully comprehend the doctrine and its political ramifications. A simple spousal of some of the ideas would be sufficient. That is why you see so many Hollywood figures and the like talking with great pomposity about topics way beyond their sphere of competence.

d) Infiltrate the churches and get them to support selected causes.

e) Infiltrate the judiciary through ideas planted at the university level and through peer review papers. Eventually some of the professionals so formed would gain access to judgeships.

All of this must be done with patience and as subtly as possible because otherwise a counter revolution would be provoked. When the time comes and power centers fall under Marxist control then the clenched fist can be shown.

Herman Bell Domestic Terrorist and Cop Killer Freed: NYPD

Dale Yeager Blog

A man convicted of killing two police officers in the 1970s was granted parole after serving 44 years, upsetting members of the New York police community who believe he should spend life behind bars, according to WCBS-TV.

What happened?

Herman Bell, who was a member of the Black Liberation Army, was convicted in the 1971 murder of Officers Waverly Jones and Joseph Piagentini.

The Black Liberation Army was an offshoot of the Black Panther Party, involved in numerous violent crimes and police officer killings.

In an apparent trap by Bell and co-defendant Anthony Bottom, Jones and Piagentini were shot multiple times while responding to a domestic dispute call in Harlem.

Bell and Bottom maintained that they were framed by the FBI for years, but later admitted to the murders in parole board interviews.

Why was Bell released?

The parole board said Bell had paid his debt to society by admitting to his crime and being productive in prison, and that his release will “denote rehabilitation as core to our system of criminal justice.”

Bell earned a bachelor’s and master’s degree in prison, and counseled other prisoners.

The son of one of the officers, Waverly Jones Jr., supported Bell’s release and said in 2014 that the only reason to keep Bell in prison would be for revenge.

Was there any opposition to the decision?

Diane Piagentini, the widow of one of the officers, came out strongly against the parole board’s decision to free Bell.

“How can we ask our police officers to risk their lives to protect society when society fails to appropriately punish their animalistic killers?” she asked in a statement.

Piagentini said the decision devalues her late husband’s life.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was also against the decision.

“I’m very troubled by it,” de Blasio said. “This was a premeditated killing of a police officer. That should be life in prison, period. There’s nothing else to discuss. I don’t understand how there was a possibility of parole in that situation.”

What about police officer outrage?

NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill called the decision to release Bell “indefensible.”

Today’s decision by the NYS Parole Board to release admitted cop-killer Herman Bell — who carried out the premeditated assassinations of Officers Joseph Piagentini and Waverly Jones — is indefensible. My complete message to the brave men and women of @NYPDnews is attached:

Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, said union members are “disgusted, offended and extremely angry with this parole board’s decision.”

Bell is set to be freed on April 17.

Racism In Women’s March Leadership And Black America

Truth Hate Crimes in the U.S.

‘Time’s up,” the slogan of the Hollywood anti-harassment movement, has a very different meaning for Louis Farrakhan.

At his annual Savior’s Day conference in Chicago last weekend, the Nation of Islam leader boasted, “And Farrakhan, by God’s grace, has pulled the cover off of that Satanic Jew and I’m here to say your time is up, your world is through.”

Farrakhan is as immodest as he is anti-Semitic. He may seem like yesterday’s Jew-hater, since he could never gather the kind of crowds he did for the so-called Million Man’s March in Washington, DC, 20 years ago. Yet he still has a following. Thousands showed up to hear him spew his usual garbage during his Savior’s Day speech, including one of the organizers of the Women’s March.

The CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, Jonathan Greenblatt, calls Farrakhan “quite possibly the most popular anti-Semite in America today.” Certainly, the haters of the alt-right don’t measure up. The white nationalist Richard Spencer would surely love to get Farrakhan’s crowds and have such a relatively robust institutional presence and publishing operation, let alone manage to maintain influence with more mainstream figures.

Tamika Mallory, the Women’s March organizer, wasn’t abashed about her attendance at the rally. She posted a photo on Instagram of herself at the event, and showed no sign of distress at Farrakhan’s greatest hits (“the powerful Jews are my enemy”; Jews are “the mother and father of apartheid”; “when you want something in this world, the Jew holds the door”; the Jews control Mexico, and a swath of Europe; and any number of other vicious lies).

Called out on her presence at the speech, Mallory tweeted a response worthy of a fellow-traveler with the Nation of Islam, “If your leader does not have the same enemies as Jesus, they may not be THE leader!”

What enemies could she be speaking of?

Mallory further pushed back by stating, “I am a strong black woman.” Actually, her putrid equivocation over Farrakhan speaks to the opposite of strength.

She added that the black community is “complex.” So is any community, but that doesn’t justify tolerating rank hatred.

And it wouldn’t be an argument with a left-wing activist if she didn’t cite the buzzword of the hour, explaining that she has “done intersectional work for 20+ years.”

He has updated this theme slightly to account for transgenderism — “the Jews were responsible for all of this filth and degenerate behavior that Hollywood is putting out turning men into women and women into men.”Ah, yes, intersectionality. Farrakhan has his own notions of that. In 2007, he declared that “it’s the wicked Jews, the false Jews that are promoting lesbianism, homosexuality.”

Mallory isn’t the only Women’s March organizer with a soft spot for the lunatic minister. Carmen Perez is another admirer. “There are no perfect leaders,” she explains, although there is a lot of daylight between normal human imperfection and Farrakhan’s paranoid rantings.

Yet another organizer, Linda Sarsour, took part in a Nation of Islam event in 2015.

Are these activists too minor to bother about? Well, if Tea Party organizers 10 years ago had been friendly toward David Duke, we would — understandably — have heard no end of it.

Just as mainstream conservatives must ostracize the alt-right, the center-left should guard against progressives making excuses for Farrakhan. With the exception of Jake Tapper of CNN, though, the media has ignored the latest eruption of the Farrakhan story.

As a reminder of how much this hygiene is necessary, Rep. Danny K. Davis of Illinois popped up to justify his relationship with Farrakhan. He told the Daily Caller, “The world is so much bigger than Farrakhan and the Jewish question and his position on that and so forth.”

Could anyone say this about David Duke and remain in office?

Farrakhan’s time should be up, but it never quite is.

Hate, Inc.: The SPLC Is a Hyper-Partisan Scam


The purported fact-finding group is in fact a machine for turning leftist hysteria into cash.

There was a time when the Southern Poverty Law Center did useful work reporting on actual hate groups such as the KKK. These days, though, the SPLC is simply a MoveOn or Media Matters–style outfit. Its core mission now is trying to marginalize and shut up even mildly right-of-center voices by calling them instruments of hate, making increasingly strained attempts to tie conservative commentators, authors, political figures, and professors to the alt-right or neo-Nazism. At the same time it elevates absurd bloggers to the level of potential leaders of lynch mobs.

The equivalent of a Drudge-siren moment for SPLC is when it rolls out yet another faux-neutral report on hate, which is always getting worse and threatening to engulf the republic. The SPLC’s report on “Male supremacy,” which it calls “a hateful ideology for the subjugation of women” and ties to the men’s-rights activists lurking on 4Chan and Reddit who boast about their supposed dominance of women, lists as pernicious allies the psychologist, author, and PJ Media columnist Helen Smith and the American Enterprise Institute scholar Christina Hoff Sommers, calling them “anti-feminist female voices” who “give the men’s rights movement a veneer of even-handedness” and lend a “mainstream and respectable face to some MRA concerns.”

You will search Smith’s and Sommers’s writings in vain for the sort of chest-thumping idiocies espoused by men’s-rights bloggers such as Paul Elam of the site A Voice for Men or “Roosh V.” (a.k.a. Daryush Valizadeh), a self-proclaimed “pickup artist” from the site Return of Kings. The SPLC is designating both of these websites “hate groups,” which offers an answer to the question of why the number of hate groups always seems to be growing in the SPLC’s tabulations. Got a blog you use to attract clicks by saying the most outrageous things you can come up with in between playing shoot-’em-up games on the PlayStation? Congratulations, you’re a “hate group.” Just like the Nazi party.

Elam and Valizadeh have said plenty of controversial, indeed hateful, things, but what fault is that of such distinguished scholars as Sommers and Smith? Nothing either of them has written gets quoted in the report. We’re meant to take the SPLC’s word for it that these women somehow “give a mainstream and respectable face” to the louts. Sommers told The Weekly Standard that she used to admire the SPLC, but now “they’re blacklisting in place of engaging with arguments. They blacklist you, rather than try to refute you.” Smith (a contributor to the Instapundit blog run by her husband, Glenn Reynolds) wrote at PJ Media, “I get emails and letters from men across the US and even other countries who tell me about the difficulties and downright atrocities that they are dealing with” but they find themselves subjected to “contempt by society, the courts and miserable, misandric places like the Southern Poverty Law Center.”

SPLC, founded by a direct-mail zillionaire named Morris Dees, spends far more on direct-mail fundraising pleas ($10 million) than it ever has on legal services, according to an analysis by Philanthropy Roundtable, and has never passed along more than 31 percent of its funding to charitable programs, sometimes as little as 18 percent. Meanwhile it has built itself a palatial six-story headquarters and an endowment of more than $200 million. In essence it is a machine for turning leftist hysteria into cash that portrays itself as a non-partisan, fact-finding group and has long been treated as such by media institutions such as the Washington Post and the New York Times. Yet it has also targeted Senator Rand Paul, surgeon–turned–HUD secretary Ben Carson, and human-rights activists Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Maajid Nawaz, calling them extremists or agents of hate (though it removed Carson from its list after an outcry), and it tagged both the Family Research Council and Mark Krikorian’s think tank, the Center for Immigration Studies, as hate groups, though the latter has been invited to testify before Congress more than 100 times.

SPLC’s tactics inspired a Politico piece wondering whether, in an era when the group’s “biggest fights seemed to be behind it,” it was “overstepping its bounds.” “There is a desperate need for more objective research on hate crimes and domestic extremism,” J. M. Berger, a researcher on extremism and a fellow with the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism at the Hague, told Politico. He said that “the problem partly stems from the fact that the [SPLC] wears two hats, as both an activist group and a source of information.” Progressive journalist Ken Silverstein, who in Harper’s compared SPLC’s practices to those of Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, told Politico, “The organization has always tried to find ways to milk money out of the public by finding whatever threat they can most credibly promote.”

The SPLC is, as Philanthropy Roundtable put it, “Hate, Inc.,” or “The Anti-Hate Group That Is a Hate Group.” Its shameful attacks on Smith, Sommers, Ali, Carson, Paul, Krikorian, and others are simply scaremongering for suckers. It may portray itself as a justice-minded team of Atticus Finches. In reality it’s more like a goon squad of David Brocks.

U.S. Southern Command warns congress of growing threat to national security by Cuba and Venezuela


The media and “Cuba Experts” portray Cuba as friendly neighbor who just wants to get along with the U.S. In reality, the island’s terror-sponsoring dictatorship has been and continues to be a serious threat to U.S. national security.

Via the Center for a Free Cuba:

Southern Command alerts Congress to threats by Russia, China, Iran, Cuba and North Korea. American diplomats suffered brain injuries in Havana

  • Southern Command alerts Congress to threats by Russia, China, Iran, Cuba and North Korea.
  • American diplomats suffered brain injuries in Havana.

Earlier this week, Admiral Kurt W. Tidd, Commander, United States Southern Command testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee. The Admiral’s posture statement covered U.S. intelligence and security concerns for the hemisphere. In his appraisal he mentioned Russia’s increased role throughout the region, mentioning Moscow’s intelligence and cyber capabilities. The Admiral called attention to “Moscow attempts to falsely shape Latin America’s information environment through its two dedicated Spanish-language news and multi-media services, and through its influence campaigns to sway public sentiment. Expanded port and logistics access in Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela provide Russia with persistent, pernicious presence, including more frequent maritime intelligence collection and visible force projection in the Western Hemisphere.”

He alerted the Committee to the dangerous alliance between Caracas and Havana.  “This relationship is symbiotic, as Cuba receives oil and financial support in exchange for keeping the Maduro regime afloat,” he said.

Caracastan: Is Venezuela planning a war against its neighbors?

Venezuelan Attack

Some experts are calling attention to recent developments in the Castro Colony of Venenozuela (a.k.a. Caracastan).

It seems that Venenozuela is preparing for war, possibly on two fronts: against Colombia and Guyana.

Such a move would — of course — follow all the guidelines of The Castro Playbook.

Castronoid General Abelardo Colome Ibarra, and other senior Cuban military officials pose with their Venezuelan pupils
Abridged from INQUISITR:

During the last few months, the Venezuelan government has been positioning troops along the border with the small South American nation of Guyana. This has raised the concern that Caracas may be intending to take the Essequibo territory through military force…

… It is hypothesized that Nicolas Maduro may use military action as a way to unite the Venezuelan people against a foreign foe. Additionally, the occupation of Guyanese soil could become a bargaining chip against the ICJ and the United States.

The fact that Guyana lacks any credible military force makes the country an optimal target for the relatively well-equipped, but logistically barren, Venezuelan military…

… It should be noted that another front has recently opened in this crisis.

Last Friday, the Venezuelan Minister of the Interior, Néstor Reverol, advanced the possibility of military action against Colombia, the Globoreports. He accused Bogotá of providing Venezuelan citizens Colombian identities and military training, which would be a reason for a military intervention. Reverol also added that the recruitment is characterized by the presence of “paramilitary personnel, partisans, and criminal bands.”

The website Poder Aéreo reported the deployment of Venezuelan F-16 fighter jets on the border with Colombia…

… As all the factors are put together, the question remains: Will Venezuela invade its neighbors?

The answer is hard to determine.

Jews Don’t Count!

No Jews?

How Cheap Is Jewish Blood?

This week, The Guardian, one of the most left-wing newspapers in Great Britain, published a 2,300-word piece describing the problem of terrorism in cities across the world. It name-checked London, Berlin, Manchester, Paris, Nice, Brussels, and Barcelona; it mentioned Algeria, Italy, Brazil, Kuwait, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Nairobi and Oklahoma City. It mentioned Israel but once — and only in order to mention the Irgun’s bombing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem in 1946. As Yair Rosenberg notes, not a single terrorist attack against Israelis made the article.

All of which raises a question: Why is it that whenever Western leaders talk about terrorism, they seem to leave terrorism against Jews off the list?

This isn’t a rarity. It’s regular and it’s predictable. When President Barack Obama spoke about the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris, for example, he brushed off the simultaneous attack on a Jewish supermarket as “random” (he later backed down). When President George W. Bush spoke about global terrorism, he rarely mentioned terrorism inside Israel. When the media list terror attacks against Western targets, Jerusalem never earns a mention.

There’s no true excuse for leaving dead Israelis off the list of terror victims.

There are two possible explanations. Neither is good enough.

First, there are those who claim that terrorism against Israelis is part of a broader political conflict — that such terrorism isn’t religious in nature, but rather a tactic in a territorial war. That’s absolute nonsense. This week, 29-year-old Itamar Ben Gal, a teacher at a yeshiva in Ariel, was stabbed to death by a Palestinian terrorist while waiting by the roadside; he left four children behind. That follows the murder of Rabbi Raziel Shevach, a father of six, in the same area, as he drove along the highway. These are civilian, not military targets. These were family men murdered for no reason other than their Judaism.

And no, this isn’t about settlements. In 2017, Israel saw a wave of terror attacks across Israel; most of those attacks were perpetrated inside so-called Green Line Israel: stabbings on the streets, truck attacks on civilian crowds. The Palestinian leadership celebrates such killings and offers the families of terrorists financial incentives to pursue them. And the Palestinian leadership is clear about the rationale for such killings. That rationale is the same as the al-Qaida rationale or the ISIS rationale: a radical Islamic political viewpoint that sees the slaughter of non-Muslim innocents as a tool in the jihad against the infidel. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas isn’t a “moderate” leader seeking peace; he’s a radical who stated openly just weeks ago that “Israel is a colonialist project that has nothing to do with the Jews.”

Then there’s the second explanation for why the world would downplay terrorist attacks against Jews: an anti-Semitic attempt to separate off the Jews from the West. That’s certainly the tendency in Europe, where it’s convenient to view anti-Semitic attacks inside the continent by radical Muslims not as attacks on European citizens but as internecine warfare between two outsider groups. That’s convenient because it allows Europe to treat the rise in anti-Semitic crime as an aberration rather than a serious internal problem. But it also reinforces the lie that Jews cannot be full citizens of the West.

There’s no true excuse for leaving dead Israelis off the list of terror victims. But those who do it don’t need an excuse. They’ll keep on doing it so long as the Jewish community remains silent about the omission. And so long as that omission remains the rule rather than the exception, the West will continue to ignore a basic, simple truth: The Jews of Israel are the canary in the coalmine in radical Islam’s war against the West, not an outlier nation that can be cast aside for political convenience. What starts on the streets of Jerusalem usually finds its way to the streets of London. The non-Israeli West would be smart to recognize that fact, if only to protect itself.

Quentin Tarantino: Roman Polanski ‘didn’t rape’ 13-Year-Old Girl: Howard Stern Defends The Girl Attacks Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino once said Roman Polanski ‘didn’t rape’ 13-year-old girl: ‘She wanted to have it’

FYI when Roman Polanski raped this child he drugged her and sodomized her causing severe damage to her anal area. 

Director Quentin Tarantino said fellow director Roman Polanski “didn’t rape” a 13-year-old girl he pleaded guilty to having sex with in the 1970s and that Polanski’s victim “wanted to have it,” Variety reported, citing 2003 audio that just resurfaced online.

Polanski was arrested in 1977 for rape by use of drugs, perversion, sodomy and lewd and lascivious acts upon a child under 14, the outlet said, adding that Polanski fled the United States after pleading guilty to unlawful sex with a minor.

What was said on the audio?

In the 2003 interview, shock jock Howard Stern insisted to Tarantino that Polanski raped a 13-year-old girl, but Tarantino pushed back and defended Polanski:

He didn’t rape a 13-year-old. It was statutory rape, alright? That’s not quite the same thing, alright? … He had sex with a minor, alright? That’s not rape. To me, when you use the word “rape” … you’re talking about violent, throwing them down; it’s like one of the most violent crimes in the world … Throwing the word “rape” around is like throwing the word “racist” around, OK? It doesn’t apply to everything that people use it for, alright? … He was guilty of having sex with a minor, alright?

Stern’s co-host Robin Quivers argued that Polanski’s victim didn’t want to have sex with him, but Tarantino didn’t see it that way.

“No, that was not the case at all,” he replied. “She wanted to have it and dated the guy.”

“She was 13!” Quivers shouted back.

Tarantino then argued that “we’re talking about America’s morals. We’re not talking about the morals in Europe and everything, alright?” Polanski is European.

Stern wasn’t siding with Tarantino, either.

“Wait a minute,” Stern said. “If you have sex with a 13-year-old girl and you’re a grown man, you know that that’s wrong.”

Tarantino then said, “Look, she was down with this” and later said the victim has “talked about it since … ‘No, he didn’t really do anything to me. It was a technicality for being 13.’”

Stern also asked Tarantino, “Would you ever seduce a 13-year-old with pills and booze?”

“No, no, no,” the director replied. “Again, you’re killing him with the pills and booze thing, alright?”

Audio of the interview was pulled from YouTube Tuesday over a Sirius XM copyright claim, Variety said, but it has shown up on other platforms.

TRAVEL ALERT: Hate Crimes At All-Time High In UK

Antisemitism UK

Travelers who are Jewish should take precautions when in the United Kingdom.

FACT: 1,382 hate incidents and 34% rise in violent assaults against Jewish people in 2017 logged [a report by by Community Security Trust].

Anti-Semitic hate incidents have reached a record level in the UK, with the Jewish community targeted at a rate of nearly four times a day last year, figures indicate.

There was no obvious single cause behind the trend, the trust said. “Often increases in anti-Semitic incidents have been attributable to reactions to specific trigger events that cause identifiable, short-term, spikes in incident levels. However, this was not the case in 2017. Instead, it appears that the factors that led to a general, sustained, high level of anti-Semitic incidents in 2016 continued throughout much of 2017.”

The report pointed to a rise in all forms of hate crime following the EU referendum as well as publicity surrounding alleged antisemitism in the Labour party. These factors may have caused higher levels of incidents as well as encouraged more reporting of anti-Semitic incidents from victims and witnesses in the Jewish community, the trust said.

The trust’s figures showed a 34% increase in the number of violent anti-Semitic assaults, from 108 in 2016 to 145 in 2017. The most common single type of incident in 2017 involved verbal abuse randomly directed at Jewish people in public.
