The Origins of the Neo-Marxist Attack on the South: Excellent

One method Gramscists’ have used to gain power enough to re-write history has been to gain tenured teaching positions at colleges and universities. This gradualist approach is called boring from within. It has resulted in significant representation of anti-American Gramscists at U.S. universities and colleges. The people that interviewed the initial Gramscists and hired them may have been open-minded people that projected their own honesty to those that they interviewed and hired, but Gramscists’ once tenured, have not been.

On July 5th, the Abbeville Institute published an article entitled “Southern Identity and the Southern Tradition” by John Devanny.

Mr. Devanny noted that Marxism is involved in attacks on southern culture and heritage and wrote that many of them were “the inheritors of a secular Puritan legacy and the disciples of cultural Marxism who began to dominate the academy in the 1960s.”

The northeastern geographic origin of many New Left reconstructionists makes me suspect Mr. Devanny is right, and that many may be cultural-political descendants of secular Puritanism.

Certainly, the milieu there is hospitable to post-secular-Puritan Neo Marxists. There are, of course, other New Left pinks and reds of a California variety. In the 1960s the impetus for the increase of this virulent variety was U.S. succession to France’s war in Vietnam and southeastern Asia.

  1. There is no "new-marxist," there is no "cultural marxist," there is only marxist.
