Virginia mom warns about cultural Marxism infiltrating public schools

Xi Van Fleet, who was six years old when Mao Zedong’s Cultural Revolution swept China, attended a meeting of the Loudoun County School Board in Virginia to voice her criticism of the “controversial critical race theory” being embraced by the board. In her one-minute speech, Van Fleet noted the similarities she sees with critical race theory and Mao’s Cultural Revolution, stating:

Cultural Marxism: ‘2 + 2 = 5’

In his novel, 1984, George Orwell used the equation “2 + 2 = 5” to describe the attempt by socialist tyrants to convince people an obvious lie, is true. It was their way of controlling the narrative. And in fact, the Soviet Union even employed an actual poster (see above) when Joseph Stalin implemented his five-year economic plan and later announced it would be completed in four years. It was a tyrant mocking his citizens, because he could. In his book, 1984, Orwell wrote: In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy. The heresy of heresies was common sense. And what was terrifying was not that they would kill you for thinking otherwise, but that they might be right. For, after all, how do we …

Black theologian calls social justice ‘cultural Marxism’

Voddie Baucham currently serves as the Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia. He is causing a stir, because he is coming out against the narrative of social justice comparing it to cultural Marxism. He says there is no such thing as social justice, there is only Biblical justice. Dr. Baucham was recently had an interviewed by Glenn Beck, from The Blaze that writes: He [Dr. Baucham] argues to Glenn that today’s social justice, anti-racism movements are steeped in Marxist critical theory and aim to redistribute justice to certain societal groups…with no consideration for individual man. Dr Baucham refers to social justice and cultural Marxism in its various forms as “poisonous” ideologies: Former pastor @VoddieBaucham REFUSES to stay silent against the “poisonous” ideologies of social justice and Marxism: “I am not willing to lay down my Bible and have anyone force me to agree with certain things.” pic.twitter.com/QJ9Iv2sG46 — Glenn Beck (@glennbeck) June 18, 2020 Faithwire reports on the interview: “And what worries me about this, is that there are real problems.

China’s communist revival: Is Satan rearing his head again?

There is a communist revival taking place in the world today. We see cultural Marxism rearing its ugly head in universities with the extreme left trying to shut down, sometimes violently, any conservatives who dare to disagree with their extreme left-wing opinions. Put perhaps the clearest example of this swing can be seen in the communist resurgence taking place in China. In an article in the Washington Times, Bob Fu, President of ChinaAid a Christian organization that monitors human right abuses in China, said persecution of Christians in China has reached levels unseen since the days of Mao Tse Tung’s Cultural Revolution (1966-1976). In 2016, ChinaAid reported the persecution of 762 Churches and 48,000 people and by 2017 that had risen to 1,265 churches and 223,000 people. The persecution trend is veering upwards again in 2018 since the passing of a law on Feb. 1 requiring all churches to register with the state.  Earlier this year, the government dynamited the largest church in Shanxi province — the Golden Lampstand Church.  The government has also burned …

University calls for Christians to repent of their ‘privilege’

Founded in 1821, the main campus of George Washington University (GWU) is found just a few blocks from the White house in Washington, DC. Its main campus is located in Foggy Bottom, an area largely owned by GWU where it serves as the landlord for such tenants as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. GWU’s motto is Deus Nobis Fiducia (God is our trust) or at least once was. There have been radical changes at the university and now when you click on its website you are welcomed with: “No matter what subject we pursue, we’ve all come here to change the course of history.” Though these words sound noble, when we understand them in the light of the cultural Marxism that has gripped many universities, they take on a more ominous tone. Where GWU once believed “God is our trust,” and make no mistake this is a reference to the Christian God, the campus recently held a workshop to strip people of their “Christian privilege.” The seminar held on Thursday, April 5, …
