Mark Levin did a good job in writing this new and needed book which introduces the reader to “cultural Marxism”, aka American Marxism, and how all our major institutions in the USA have been infiltrated per the teachings of Herbert Marcuse, Saul Alinsky, and Cloward and Piven over the last couple generations and how our cultural institutions are now solidly controlled by ideologue Marxist disciples of Marcuse, Alinsky, Cloward, Piven, and other Marxist mentors. The cultural Marxists now have “permanent influencers” in all our major institutions. And they are now openly and aggressively working on one of the last major institutions not totally infiltrated – our military. The long march through the institutions advocated by Antonio Gramsci 100 years ago has succeeded in the USA where violent revolution advocated by Vladimir Lenin could not.
For another book that covers more of these “cultural Marxists”, past and present, I would recommend the reader read another book “Who Was Karl Marx?: The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today’s Rampaging American Left” by James Simpson.
Mark Levin is doing a great job now identifying and sounding the alarm regarding “cultural Marxism” with his new book. But in my opinion, he let the country down previously when he refused to fully engage with others in the exposing of the “cultural Marxist”(and life narrative enigma) Barack Obama when he first ran for election to the Presidency in 2007/2008 and subsequently became the “cultural Marxist”-in-Chief, and then also let us down again during Obama’s re-election campaign in 2011/2012.
Barack Obama getting forefront control of the executive branch of the U.S. government for 8 years, and now “leading from behind” in another 4 years under his front-man and puppet Joe Biden, is one of the root causes of the rapid acceleration of the end-game power plays of the various Marxist movements in the USA that we are now seeing play out before our eyes, and no longer hiding in the shadows.
Mark Levin should have been more supportive of those back in 2007 and 2008 challenging the Article II Section 1 Clause 5 constitutional ineligibility of Barack Obama to be the President and Commander in Chief or our military. Mark Levin militantly refused to listen or join in that battle regarding Obama’s ever changing early life narrative.
At the time I think he was being threatened and intimidated by his radio show management from doing so (an early version of the “cancel culture” tactics we see very prevalent now) by the very Marxist groups and forces that he now describes in his book American Marxism.
By allowing the born dual-Citizen of the U.S. and England, Barack Obama, to gain control of the executive branch (when he was not constitutionally eligible, per the founders and framers understanding and intent of putting the “natural born Citizen” clause into the Presidential Eligibility clause of our U.S. Constitution, as a strong check against foreign influence per John Jay’s summer of 1787 letter to George Washington), Mark Levin allowed the entire foreign-influenced, dual-Citizen camel train of Obama and fellow travelers to gain complete entry into the tent, and not just the noses that cultural Marxists have been poking around our constitutional republic tent for decades.
The cultural Marxists have been trying to get complete control of our constitutional republic in order to tear it apart and and tear it down in order to then rebuild it into their promised utopian socialist nirvana, which as more and more controls are imposed to enforce their dream, turns the target nation into a police state instead.
Regardless of Mark Levin’s past lapses in not standing up for original intent re the “natural born Citizen” term in the presidential eligibility clause of our U.S. Constitution, I recommend reading this new book. We must wake up the American public to the threat we face from “cultural Marxists” of the past generations and ones of the current generation like Barack Obama and others in his orbit.
