Marxist Toxicity

Member Login to Listen/Download MP3 of Entire Broadcast

First up this week Peter Hammond (www.frontlinemissionsa.org), Founder and Director of Frontline Fellowship, joins us from South Africa to examine the inner workings of Marxist revolutions and how once the leaders get in power, there is no need to keep around the folks who got them there. He also looks at the psychological warfare that Marxists use to manipulate the masses.

Then we chat with Stanley Kurtz (www.eppc.org), Senior Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, who discusses the history of multiculturalism, the rise in speech codes, and the odd, contradictory concept of strategic essentialism.

John then looks at two streams of toxic thought in the boralogue – that of Marxism and postmodernism. He shows how we came from a solid foundation in America to a near Marxist takeover and contrasts the toxicity of today’s popular narratives with that of our Judeo-Christian roots.

We wrap out the show this week with a clip from John’s appearance on KYMS radio recently where he and host, Lee Lancaster, discuss a variety of topics including what happens when Marxism comes to your church and the philosophies of mob rule. The full interview will post Sunday for Premium Members.

In 1987 at Stanford University, there were calls for Western Civilization to be done away with. Stanley Kurtz (www.eppc.org), Senior Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, joins us to discuss the history of multiculturalism, the incorporation of Marxism into that narrative, and the increase of speech codes and assertions that everyone is a racist.

How do we define the terms of any battle? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the weaponization of language when it comes to political and cultural battles, looking back at the Third Reich and the Spanish Inquisition to compare to the tactics of social justice warriors today. Free speech and open discussion of ideas are what we have now. We need to stand up against those who would take those freedoms away.

Immigration is at the top of every news cycle today, but are we getting the whole truth about who’s coming here? Todd Bensman (www.cis.org), Senior National Security Fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies, reveals the truth about where those who are coming from South America are actually from and discusses the similarities and differences between Europe’s and America’s approach to handling the migrant crisis.

Is there another Reformation on the horizon for the Catholic Church? John Zmirak (www.stream.org), Senior Editor at The Stream returns to examine the controversies surrounding the current Pope and the need for reform now that socialist ideas seem to be taking hold within the Church.

What is the difference between justice and social justice? Mark Hendrickson (www.visionandvalues.org), Economic Professor at Grove City College, joins us to discuss how government should ideally function and then how it would function should social justice warriors and the PC elites take over.

John finishes up the program this week reviewing several news stories, including the government shutdown, our growing debt problem, and the ability to exercise free speech when it comes to politically correct issues.

John’s quote of the week:
“Intersectionality is an effort to make appear logical that which is fundamentally illogical. They are trying to put it in some kind of order where they can contain the irrational chaos.”

In this week’s Extras segment, we play an interview from August 2015 with Dan Gordon regarding the similarities between terror tunnels under the Israel-Gaza border and those under the U.S.-Mexico border.

If socialism is such a wonderful concept, why does it always fail and result in tragic results? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the evils of socialism using Nicaragua and Venezuela as case studies, contrasting the totalitarianism in those countries with the freedoms our Constitution provides here. The media will always praise socialism but we know the truth: it fails whenever it rears its Marxist head.

Social justice has morphed into a politically correct cudgel against free speech, but did it start out that way? Michael Rectenwald (www.springtimeforsnowflakes.com), Liberal Studies Professor at NYU, rejoins the program to discuss how the origins of social justice were rooted in conservatism and family, but from there morphed into its current form of political correctness and totalitarianism.

After so many years of so-called importance, why is the issue of climate change found near the bottom of many people’s concern lists now? Anthony Watts (www.wattsupwiththat.com), Founder and Editor of climate blog Watts Up With That, looks at both the history and future of climate change mania and notes the coercive tactics that alarmists have used to enforce their narrative.

The Catholic Church abuse scandal could be worse than many realize. Philip Lawler (www.catholicculture.org), Director of Catholic Culture, examines the internal politics of the Church, how the Pope factors into it, and the often overlooked need for reform.

John’s quote of the week:
“In free societies, the laws are limited and very clear. In totalitarian societies, they are many and they are vague. That way anyone can be guilty whenever they have to be. So people start self-censoring for fear of arbitrarily violating these norms, which are constantly changing.”

In this week’s Section 6, John contemplates the meaning of life, dives into an alien conspiracy theory, shows the totalitarian mindset among different groups, follows up with news on the Catholic Church, and finishes up with a Christian persecution update.
