On Christian Cultural Marxism. Russell Moore and other Useful Idiots.
By Walter Everly (reprinted from Invetors’ News)
During the recent debates surrounding the firing of John Derbyshire from National Review for writing the politically incorrect truth that everyone knows to be true, many people began to notice what others had noticed for a long time: the function of Conservativism Inc. (i.e. mainstream “conservatism”) is not to battle the left but to police the real right.
On a recent email list, this line of thought got people to thinking: perhaps the same is true for Conservative Christianity Inc. (i.e. mainstream “conservative” Christianity). Perhaps the purpose of Conservative Christianity Inc. is not to battle the left but to silence and mislead conservative Christians. What’s most notable is that many so-called conservative Christian leaders today peddle what is essentially Cultural Marxism repackaged as “Christianity,” and the sheeple uncritically consume it.
While the candidates for such sinister work are many (neocon Timothy Dolan, John Piper, Richard Land, Leith Anderson, et al.), here I will focus on Russell D. Moore, Dean of the School of Theology and Senior Vice President for Academic Administration at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (SBTS), since many conservatives have been criticizing him recently, and, most importantly, since The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary is supposed to be one of the more conservative Baptist seminaries in the USA.
Where to begin? Much could be said about Russell Moore’s subtle anti-Western assumptions, but here I’ll focus on some of his more egregious positions.
1) On the issue of immigration, “Russell Moore has sided with the Third World and against the West,” as others have noted. Moore openly supports the Third World invasion of Western countries, esp. the USA. Employing the censorship methods of Cultural Marxists, Moore thinks that discussions should be prohibited that relate to immigrants driving down American wages or immigrants draining social services. Moore has gone so far as to write a resolution criticizing European Americans who oppose their own dispossession from the institutions their ancestors built. The conservative Christian blog the Dow Blog has published extensively how Moore’s position resembles not traditional Christianity but Cultural Marxism, a stated purpose of which is the dispossession of Europeans worldwide. See Pt. I, Pt. II, Pt. III. (Patrick Cleburne comments here, here, here, and here.)
2) A second facet of Moore’s Cultural Marxism is his fanatical support of transracial adoption (vide Adopted for Life: The Priority of Adoption for Christian Families & Churches), which in essence tells Westerners to forsake their own inclusive fitness for the sake of non-Westerners. When Part Robertson sensibly stated, “You do not have to take on somebody else’s problems,” implicitly criticizing all the nutjob multicult Christians running off to Africa or Haiti to adopt black children, Moore went into crybaby PC meltdown. Here, Moore doesn’t even conceal his own pathetic ethnomasochism. As implied by conservative Christian blogger Generation5 (here and here), Moore’s fanatical support of transracial adoption is a betrayal of traditional Christian realism and a championing of Cultural Marxism.
3) Another recent example of Moore’s Cultural Marxism is his opposition to laws opposing the Islamification of Western countries. This is what Louis Pauwels has called “Mental AIDS,” where, as with real AIDS one’s body cannot distinguish between what’s beneficial and harmful, infected Christians do not oppose a religion that clearly seeks to replace Christianity.
4) The list could go on and on. For instance, Moore seems to support the Cultural Marxist line that “race is unimportant,” although traditional Christianity always recognized racial differences and thought race mattered. Nonetheless, Moore is quick to label his opponents with the Cultural Marxist charge of “racism.” More recently, people who follow Moore’s Twitter feed told me that Moore has been going on rants about “white supremacist Darwinists.” Moore must subscribe to Trotskyite Lysenkoism? Or Liberal Creationism? In reality, from what I can see, most of the anti-Moore criticism seems to come from conservative Christians. On Twitter recently Moore has even gone so far as to invite the radical black-liberation preacher CJ Rhodes to visit SBTS (with free room and board!) and suggested to him that he get a degree at SBTS with a focus in “black church.” What about white church, Russ? What about Pro-Western Christianity? Oh yea, ethnomasochism. The now left-wing SBTS must be going the way of Jeremiah Wright!
Of course, all of this does not mean that Moore is a conscious Cultural Marxist; he probably has never even read anything written by Cultural Marxists. Rather, Moore has probably imbibed Cultural Marxist ideas from popular culture and has then repackaged them as Christian.
People on an email list have suggested that Moore might suffer from pathological altruism, ethnomasochism, or pathetic beta maleness. People in the field of theology have told me that Moore isn’t the brightest person, so, regardless of his condition, I suspect he’s uncritically repackaging Cultural Marxist platitudes as Christian, which raises the bigger question: Why is someone so grossly incompetent the Dean of the School of Theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary?
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, moving in the direction of the Rainbow Coalition, no longer seems to be a beacon of traditional Baptist Christianity it once was and the truly devout should be weary about studying there.
Russell Moore has really been drinking the Cultural Marxist Kool-Aid. He seems to have mistaken Cultural Marxism for traditional Christianity. Poor guy. Here’s a recent tweet referring to this article as “white supremacist, hyper-Darwinist, anti-orphan eugenics propaganda” and another referring to it as being promoted by a “group of white supremacist eugenicists.” Moore here is deliberately trying to mislead his followers, since, as I noted previously, most of the anti-Moore criticism comes from conservative Christians. Seriously, Russ, take a deep breath, stop with the maudlin hyperventilation, watch this video (everyone’s talking about it), purify your mind of all the politically correct clichés that you’ve imbibed from Cultural Marxism, and at least try to be rational. *Yawn*

A video that has generated much discussion around the web:
The Maori (7.4% of NZ population) want new rights to tax wind farms, because the Maori claim ownership over, or at least a special connection with, the wind.
Ngapuhi leader David Rankin says under the Treaty of Waitangi, Maori might have a claim to the wind.
He says the precedent has been set with Maori claims to water.
When asked if Maori had a spiritual connection to the wind, as they claim to with the country’s land and rivers, Mr Rankin said this indeed was the case.
“We can actually prove we’ve had a connection with wind since the beginning of time.”

When Treason Becomes The Norm: Why The Proposition Nation, Not Islam, Is Our Primary Enemy
Fjordman, Gates of Vienna
In 2009 it was revealed that the ruling Labour Party had purposefully flooded Britain with several million immigrants, without consulting its citizens, in order to socially engineer a “truly Multicultural” country. The huge increases in migrants over the previous decade were partly due to a politically motivated attempt to radically change the country and to “rub the Right’s nose in diversity,” according to Andrew Neather, a former adviser to Prime Minister Tony Blair. He said mass immigration was the result of a deliberate plan, but ministers were reluctant to discuss this for fear that it would alienate the party’s “core working class vote.”
Lord Glasman — a personal friend of the Labour Party leader — in 2011 stated that “Labour lied to people about the extent of immigration… and there’s been a massive rupture of trust.” He admitted that the Labour Party had sometimes been actively hostile to the white natives. In particular, they tended to view white working-class voters as “an obstacle to progress.”
To my knowledge, these shocking revelations of a Western government virtually launching a full-front attack to crush its own people have so far not caused a single word of protest from political leaders or mass media in any other Western country, although these acts could be construed as a policy of state-sponsored ethnic cleansing targeting the white majority population. In my country’s mass media, these public admissions from Neather were hardly mentioned at all, although journalists never miss an opportunity to warn against the dangerous tide of “white racism and xenophobia” that is supposedly sweeping the Western world today.
I searched the ‘net for the loopiest reaction to the news that Augusta National Golf Club has knuckled under and agreed to admit women. I found it at the Washington Post:
The recent token actions at the Augusta National Golf Club and the repugnant comments of Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) serve as the best public reminders of how entrenched male domination and arrogance carry the power to wound women deeply — and the fight that must be waged to stop them.
Both actions force the public mind to return to the often overlooked crime of gender abuse and domination. They arrive at a perilous time in this highly politically charged season to demonstrate the abusive power privileged men have to define the role of women, to exclude them from normal affairs of society and to act as if male birthright has made them the center of the universe.
Got that? If a private club is allowed to exercise freedom of association, and to organize itself along lines that violate (or worse, ignore!) the absolutes of Cultural Marxism, why, that’s a crime! And a fight “must be waged” against those who commit such crimes.
News flash: That fight is well under way. In case you hadn’t noticed, the forces of Cultural Marxism are winning.
Yes, that’s how far we’ve sunk, ladies and gentlemen. No aspect of our lives can escape the reach of radical egalitarianism, which is our beloved central government’s core value and justification. And what better way for Augusta to honor that value than to offer membership to Darla Moore, a banker, and Condi Rice, a war criminal who famously invoked the Civil Rights movement to justify the government’s wars? The representation of heartless plutocracy and militarism is picture perfect.
So what’s next for Augusta? Should the club install ladies’ tees? Or would shorter yardage goals for women constitute yet another assertion that women aren’t as capable as “privileged men”?
I don’t know what I’d do in their position. I really don’t. But then, the absurdities of make-believe equality — or “Potemkin parity” — are just part of the institutionalized insanity we must submit to. There’s plenty more to come.
Pat Robertson actually said something wise: “You don’t have to take on somebody else’s problems,” implicitly criticizing all the nutjob multiculti Christians running off to Africa or Haiti to adopt black children. Of course, the
conservative Cultural Marxist Russell Moore pulled out the crybaby act, peddling maladaptive nonsense. Moore seems to think that whites should reduce their inclusive fitness for the sake of globalist Cultural Marxism.
Apparently Pat Robertson has back-peddled from his previous statement. You don’t criticize the Cultural Marxists. You just don’t.
Update: See new article here.
Shame on Augusta National. They have caved. While they deserve credit for not caving 10 years ago when the pressure was really on, this still feels like a delayed cave, an attempt to save face while still giving in to the forces of PC. I also don’t get why any self-respecting woman would accept the invitation to become an obvious token. But then, whoever thought Condi Rice had any self-respect. If she did, she wouldn’t have shilled for Bush’s stupid war.
Poor Charles Johnson. He can never seem to get his panties out of a wad. Every non-conventional wisdom approved thought sends his little prissy self into hysterics. Now he’s pitching a hissy fit over the Root article we are discussing below.

Dr. Michael Hill, League of the South President
Eventually, amnesty for millions of non-white illegal aliens will become reality. Many think this is the beginning of the end of Western Christian civilization in North America. Why have the elites sold us out? Why are they committed to the destruction of the West by the promotion of multiculturalism? And why is multiculturalism the poison that will ultimately prove fatal to Western Christian civilization unless an antidote is quickly administered? Unless we understand exactly what we are dealing with when we bring up the subject of multiculturalism, The League of the South and our allies can never hope to successfully combat the enemies who are sworn to our – white Southerners–destruction as a people.
What exactly is multiculturalism (which, for short, I will simply call MC)? Its advocates cast it in innocuous terms, claiming that it is merely justice and the recognition and celebration within the borders of the West of non-Western peoples and cultures. A proposition based on simple fairness, they say. Moreover, the MC crowd claims the superior moral mantle of anti-racism (which is really only a coded term for “anti-white”). The white, Christian West, they posit, bears much guilt for having built its prosperity and civilization on the backs of the poor, dark-skinned races of the world. It is only just, then, that the West share its wealth – including its land and produce – with its myriad poor brothers and sisters from the Third World. Pity and sympathy have become their most potent weapons turned against a West that has lost its ability to think correctly about the question of its very survival.
In our day, virtually every Western institution – church, government, the academy, the media, big business – mimics the cry of left-wing utopian humanism. From the Civil Rights movement in America to the Universal Rights of Man, the demand is the same: “Western man, give up your ill-gotten Kingdom for the good of all.” We Westerners are browbeaten in the name of MC to take in millions from the Third World in order that we not only might share our wealth and way of life with them but also to prove that we are not “racists.” In short, we are asked to sacrifice all we have at the altar of egalitarianism.
But MC is really not about ushering in equality among all races, religions, and cultures; rather, it is about destroying Western Christian civilization, the world’s premier unmitigated evil. And because the South is the strongest enclave of this civilization, it finds itself square in the crosshairs of the MC crowd. Why do you think the Feds are not willing to lift a hand to stop our dispossession by a floodtide of illegal immigrants? It is the continuation of Reconstruction to the ultimate degree. We are being replaced as a people.
Any attempt by Western man to defend himself and his civilization is called “racism,” and is designed to paralyze him completely (even when no malice is shown toward any other group). This agenda points up the fact that the proponents of MC seek not fairness, justice, or equality but demonization and destruction of the white, Christian West. Only whites, and white Southerners in particular, are not allowed to have a country all their own. Asia for Asians, Africa for Africans, but no South for white Southerners!
All indications point to the success of the MC agenda of paralyzing the West through guilt manipulation. Though we never had any sort of debate about whether we wanted to be a MC polity, it has been forced upon us anyway. Anyone who protests is silenced by the usual epithets. Even opposition to illegal immigration is enough to get you called a “racist” or a “xenophobe.” If you don’t believe me, check out the Southern Poverty Law Center’s rants on the subject.
Why do we allow this to happen? I suppose the bigger question is: why are we voluntarily swallowing the poison of MC and committing suicide? Former President Bill Clinton was effusive in his praise for the coming day – around the year 2050–when whites of European descent would become a minority in North America. Well, if getting rid of the white majority is such a good thing, why wait until 2050? Why not just drop all pretence of enforcing immigration law and roll out the red carpet for the Third World? If all men are brothers and America is indeed a Proposition Nation, then what are we waiting for?
If the scenario of the South (and the rest of America) being overrun by hordes of non-white immigrants does not appeal to you, then how is this disaster to be averted? By the people who oppose it rising up against their traitorous elite masters and their misanthropic rule. But to do this we must first rid ourselves of the fear of being called “racists” and the other meaningless epithets they use against us. What is really meant by the MC advocates when they peg us as “racists” is that we adhere to ethnocentrism, which is a natural affection for one’s own kind. This is both healthy and Biblical. I am not ashamed to say that I prefer my own kind and my own culture. Others can have theirs; I have mine. No group can survive for long if its members do not prefer their own over others.
If the South – the most important remaining bastion of Western Christian civilization – is to survive the MC onslaught, then it must fight doggedly against everything that threatens its existence. If we cannot do this, it is proof that we are a dying civilization. To live, we must re-cultivate our common cultural bonds that historically have made us a distinct people, repent of our sins, and pray to God that he will spare us for ever letting things get this bad in the first place.

At the recent League of the South National Conference in Alabama (see video here), I talked about the Tea Party’s utter failure to conduct and carry out a real campaign for liberty. Indeed, as I pointed out in my talk, the Tea Party is little more than a tool of the Republican party and the National Security state. One example: politicians the Tea Party helped elect have supported legislation that expands and consolidates the central government’s power over us, such as the Cybersecurity Intelligence Sharing And Protection Act, which gives the government the authority to monitor all online communications in the name of national security. That’s a helluva way to protect our rights.

Below is an e-mail from Judge Moore:
We are going August 1 in support of Mr. Cathy and their stand – will you?
JUDGE ROY MOORE AND THE FOUNDATION FOR MORAL LAW SUPPORT CHICK-FIL-A’S STANCE ON MARRIAGE
Montgomery (AL) Judge Roy Moore and the Foundation for Moral Law support Chick-fil-A and the Cathy family for their stand for traditional marriage.
Judge Moore stated that, “Marriage between one man and one woman is an institution ordained by God and is the foundation of the family, upon which the future of our nation rests. Like the great majority of the Country, Alabama has recognized in its law that marriage, to be valid, can only occur between one man and one woman.”
At a time when moral values are under attack by a philosophy which contradicts everything upon which our Country began, it is encouraging to see Chick-fil-A boldly stand for truth and virtue in our society.
The Foundation for Moral Law, a national non-profit legal organization, is located in Montgomery, Alabama, and is dedicated to restoring the knowledge of God in law and government through litigation and education relating to moral issues and religious liberty cases.
There is an campaign underway to encourage people to eat at Chick-fil-A on Wednesday as a show of support against the bullies in the homosexual lobby.
I hadn’t heard about this until my preacher announced it in church this morning. Judging by the response, Chick-fil-A is going to be very crowded on Wednesday.
In a couple of posts below I commended Chick-fil-A and the Boy Scouts of America for standing-up to the PC bullies. This sort of grandstanding PC bullying is an effort to intimidate any person, company, organization, etc. who might consider transgressing PC rightthink into remaining silent. There is also a flip-side to these grandstanding PC condemnations of wrongthinkers. It is the public act or statement intended to display just how much of a rightthinker someone is. Enter Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon.com. He’s giving 2.5 million to the efforts to defeat an anti-gay “marriage” referendum in Washington state. Expect more of this “How dare you be a wrongthinker!” and “Look at what a rightthinker I am!” grandstanding in the future.
Remember the anarchist/antifa gang that tried to blow up a Cleveland bridge last May? Their goal was to boost the Occupy movement. (Not sure how that was supposed to work, but as you can see from their pictures, these boys can’t be firing on all cylinders. Maybe Arthur Jensen could tweak Spearman’s hypothesis to account for the low IQ of these Occupy types.)
Anthony Hayne was brought into the court room wearing street clothes instead of the usual prison orange. Emotions were running high as what many of the supporters and loved ones feared the most unfolded before our eyes. Around 9:30 AM Anthony Hayne formally entered into a cooperating plea agreement with the government on the basis that he was found guilty on all three charges. The judge seemed hesitant about Hayne’s move, as it included a mandatory minimum sentence of roughly 16-20 years in prison (188-235 months served). The exact amount of time served would be dependent on the level of cooperation with the government. Formal sentencing will not occur until the trial is concluded.
As the Cleveland 5 support group, as friends and loved ones of all of them, we are shocked by his decision. Particularly by his decision to enter into a plea that would, by its nature, require the exchange of information that would implicate and/or potentially make worse the case of his other co-defendants. As this is and will remain a political case, we can no longer express support and advocacy on the behalf of Anthony.
Reckon Hayne will have to turn in his black hoodie?
There’s a discrepancy of outcomes at a prestigious public school – clearly this is a case of White privilege! The NAACP and the “Coalition of Silence” spring into action!

Another one for the “Dissent will not be tolerated!” file. The BSA reaffirmed their policy barring openly homosexual members and leaders. Predictably, the PC Thought Police are having a temper tantrum. Christopher Baker wants us to know he’s outraged and no longer wants to be “associated with the bigotry for which it (the BSA) now stands.” (emphasis mine) Ummm Einstein … er … I mean Chris, the BSA reaffirmed an already existing ban. What is new is that an age old and entirely defensible policy from both a moral, common sense and liability standpoint is now an issue because the Pro-Homosexual PC Thought Police are feeling their oats.

More from the dissent will not be tolerated file. Her tweet was admittedly tasteless and incredibly stupid, but it does not warrant a ban from the Olympics for which she has worked so long and hard.
Papachristou was scheduled to fly to London next week from her training base in Athens when the Hellenic Olympic Committee – Greek’s Olympic federation – made the decision to expel her from the team.
Hmmm … The “Hellenic Olympic Committee” “made the decision.” Sounds familiar doesn’t it? Anyone who doesn’t see the link that I noted between the NCAA’s grandstanding and the dynamic that empowers the PC Gestapo isn’t looking hard enough.
Addendum: The expelled Olympian is kinda hot. Did that have anything to do with her expulsion? She looked like a racist?
