Forward—Over the Cliff

Obama’s Cultural Seduction of America

Mike Scruggs

With the release of a new 7-minute video, President Barack Obama has established a lead-slogan for his 2012 reelection campaign. The video is simply entitled, “Forward.”

“Forward” generally imparts positive social and political connotations, but beneath the deceptively positive connotations of words transformed by Marxist Newspeak lies a nation-destroying totalitarian agenda.

"Forward,” by the way, has been a traditional title for Marxist publications since the Communist League publication by that name in 1844, including Vladimir Lenin’s propaganda publication begun in 1905.

On May 9, President Obama announced to the world, “I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.” Obama’s definition of “forward” clearly includes not only the redistribution of wealth but also the normalization of homosexual behavior and the social and moral chaos it will bring by weakening traditional marriage and family relationships.

Of his young daughters who have friends whose parents are same-sex couples, he said,

“It wouldn’t dawn on them that somehow their friends’ parents would be treated differently. It doesn’t make sense to them, and frankly, that’s the kind of thing that prompts a change in perspective.”

However, the President’s argument for same-sex marriage, made here partly through his daughters, is an emotional appeal using false analogy, faulty logic, and an unconscionable disregard for its social consequences. It is false analogy because it equates respectful social treatment of people with approval of their actions. We can love persons and treat them with respect without approving of their objectionable or dangerous behavior or making it lawful. In fact, to approve sin or destructive behavior is unloving and cowardly. Approval of egregious behavior is not the next logical step from respect and courtesy. Endangering society to appease a self-destructive militant minority is not logic; it is absurdity leading to social decay and chaos. Moreover, approval of behavior cannot be separated from its historical and probable future consequences.

The average male same-sex marriage lasts only 1.5 years, and fewer than five percent last over four years. Faithfulness to partners in these so-called marriages is rare. Researchers in the Netherlands found that male homosexuals in same-sex marriages had an average of eight sexual partners per year outside their primary same-sex marriage bond. The prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) is so high among homosexuals that they lose on average 20 years of life expectancy.

What are the consequences for the children and society for these same-sex marriages? The consequences of broken marriages on children are well-known—high probabilities of illicit drug use, arrests, school failure and expulsion, emotional and behavioral problems, and poverty. To expect that these statistics would not apply to the adopted or natural children of homosexual partners, whose mutual involvement is likely to be short and morally confusing, is harebrained. In addition, homosexual males are three times more likely than heterosexual males to engage in the sexual molestation of children.

The President’s argument for approving homosexual marriage is not leadership; it is surrender to an uninformed and childish understanding of issues with serious future social consequences. It is consistent, however, with his Neo-Marxist cultural philosophy.

After World War I and the Russian Revolution of 1917, European Marxists associated with the University of Frankfurt in Germany concluded that additional Communist revolutions in the West were not likely to be successful unless Western culture and Christianity could be destroyed. Thus they conceived a long-term plan to transform Western culture by taking control of the most influential cultural institutions in Western Society—the universities, the schools, the media, and even the churches. Once Marxism became the dominant influence in these institutions, true Communist revolution and near-absolute Communist control of government was possible. Marxist academic Antonio Gramsci called this transformation “the long march through the institutions.”

As the ideology of cultural Marxism advanced, Marxist theory included more emphasis on psychology and sociology. Marx was blended with Freud to exploit the issues of sexual revolution and feminism. Two major contributing academic psychologists were Eric Fromm and Wilhelm Reich. In the 1950s, Herbert Marcuse, a German-born sociologist and Marxist of the Frankfurt School, mesmerized the emerging American New Left with his strong criticisms of capitalism and his 1955 book, Freud, Eros, and Civilization. His 1964 book, One-Dimensional Man, resonated especially with New Left college students. As a professor at the University of California at San Diego, he became a major influence on the anti-war movement and protest demonstrations during the Vietnam War. It was Marcuse who first said that Marxist revolution would not come from the working class but from students, blacks, feminist women, and homosexuals. He also did much to develop “Critical Theory,” which was no more than the Leftist strategy of waging a constant war of criticism against traditional Western institutions and thinking.

The nature of the Marxist mind is to control. But first it must influence and then dominate. It is not particular about ethics, morality, or truth in its means. Whatever advances the totalitarian Marxist State is right and true. Its primary weapons are seductive lies, but it easily resorts to brutality. It is the enemy of Biblical Christianity, the Judeo-Christian worldview, Western culture and tradition, and any freedom not granted by an all-powerful State. You can see its poisonous ideology and influences marching through our universities, our schools, the media, our government, and even our religious institutions. You can see it in the tightening grip of political correctness, multiculturalism, misguided applications of tolerance, and coercive forms of diversity.

Will American voters allow the advance of cultural and political Marxism for another four years? Will we march forward over the cliff of our national destruction? We are already teetering on the brink of that cliff. November 2012 will be the Battle for America.


  1. "The prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) is so high among homosexuals that they lose on average 20 years of life expectancy."

    Awww, now that's just terrible (roll eyes).

  2. It's difficult to find experienced people in this particular subject, however, you seem like you know what you're
    talking about! Thanks
