Americans are sick and tired of the country moving wildly to the Left.
Conservatives and even some moderate liberals are pushing back against the “woke” insanity.
And one university that praised communism just got smacked in the face with reality.
The University of Florida is backtracking on an idiotic idea to honor Karl Marx at one of the campus’s libraries.
The school allowed a plaque outside of a group study room to praise the chief promoter of one of the worst ideas in human history.
Breitbart reported that the “University of Florida has removed Communist Manifesto author Karl Marx — who the university called a ‘philosopher, radical economist, and revolutionary critic’ — from the name of a library study room. Incredibly, the school claims the decision is based on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.”
So it took the war in Ukraine to get Florida to reverse their decision.
Leftists had no problem with the Soviet Union when it was a slave state that was flipping countries toward communism around the globe.
But now that Russia is a run-of-the-mill corrupt oligarchy, the plaque had to come down.
Hessy Fernandez, director of strategic communications said, “Given current events in Ukraine and elsewhere in the world, we determined it was appropriate to remove the name of Karl Marx that was placed on a group study room…”
The plaque read, “The unique extent of the influence of Marx’s materialist explanation of the workings of society, economics and history, inevitably saw Marxist theory extend its influence to literary criticism.”
Sadly, his influence on academia—and society as a whole—has been widespread and deeply detrimental.
The core Marxist framework of oppressor versus oppressed has been applied in a variety of fields, not just economics.
Almost all of Marx’s predictions did not come true; he said the socialist takeover would happen in an industrialized country, but it happened in Russia, which was more agrarian at the time.
The fact that his predictions didn’t come true caused consternation for many of his devotees; the proletariat did not rise up against the capital class because they enjoyed their middle-class lifestyle.
That’s when dedicated Marxists applied his theories to culture, and that has been the educational paradigm in higher learning for several decades.
Only the most hardcore cranks argue in favor of economic Marxism, but a huge swath of the Left applies his theories to race, gender, sexuality, and other areas of social division.
Conservatives have slowly caught on to this game, and it’s going to take a lot of time and effort to reverse this horrific trend.
