So what isn't true about this picture?
Twitter had yet another melt down as Ron Paul appeared to promote a "Happy Merchant" meme while criticizing "Cultural Marxism".
In his now deleted Tweet, Ron Paul's Twitter added a Cultural Marxism image to a piece he wrote. Dr. Paul attributes the image as a mistake caused by staff.
Much more interesting than whether this was a mistake or not, and who did it, is: is the point the cartoon is trying to make true?
This is how the Twitteratti handle these discussions:
Dr. Paul later doubled down with his attack on "Cultural Marxism" with a statement on Facebook, not mentioning or apologizing for the original cartoon.
Read his words below, he is absolutely right, and a lot more people read those words than would normally have, thanks to the J-Left freak-out on Twitter.
Are you stunned by what has become of American culture?
Are you confused as to how every moral principle could be turned on its head so quickly?
Well, it's not an accident.
You've probably heard of "Cultural Marxism," but do you know what it means?
Marxists, after the tremendous failure of their *economic* ideas, decided to change their angle of attack. There was no way that people could be convinced that Socialism is economically superior to Capitalism.
Socialism produced tyranny and death in the hundreds of millions, while Capitalist nations were bursting with wealth.
So, Marxists shifted to targeting culture instead of the economy.
If Cultural Marxists could *destroy the culture* of Capitalist nations, *then* they would try to use the opportunity to change the governments and economies to their Socialist utopia.
If the people can't think straight, perhaps then Socialism could be shackled onto them.
Marxists just shifted their targets.
Their original argument of workers being *exploited* by capitalists, didn't sell. It's obviously not the case.
So Marxists just shifted their "exploitation" schtick to culture:
--- women exploited by men
--- gays exploited by heterosexuals
--- The old exploited by the young -- and vice-versa
--- This list goes on and on.
Anything that is true is to be twisted like a pretzel -- to the point where people can't tell what is true anymore.
How do you think they're doing?
Had enough yet?
Then don't be afraid to stand up for truth, and speak it!
Otherwise, history can most definitely repeat itself.
And the history of Socialism is as nasty and brutish as it gets. Nothing compares to it in terms of human suffering.
