War on Christmas and repressive tolerance

Johnny U posted a worthy oped from the Washington Times in a much appreciated comment he left at Vlad this morning.

Thank you John, for that and for all your contributions to this site.

The OpEd is about the war on Christmas being in fact about a war on America. This is of course true. But the author went to war and left his guns, uniform and C rations at home. While he noticed that there seems to be, shall we say, inequities in how Christmas is treated by the left and left influenced institutions, he didn’t offer any understanding as to why.

I would like to post my response to that comment here, and with an additional example beyond the response to the comment.

Anyone reading that article should aquaint themselves with the concept of “Repressive Tolerance”.

This, if memory serves, is a Frankfurt School Marxist based tactic.

One uses the concept of tolerance to try and get people to deconstruct all their own traditions and concepts and culture in order to show tolerance to others, while promoting all the others at the expense of your own.

The author of the Washington Times article described the effects quite well, even if he left out the best examples of it and showed lack of awareness as to its strategic origins and nature.

In terms of examples, I would point out that while we are increasingly no longer allowed to acknowledge Christmas, disapproving of women in burkas is a hate crime and closer and closer to a criminal offence every day.

This is Repressive Tolerance at work.

A few years ago, we subtitled a series of videos by a Polish academic on Marxism where he covers this concept. But it is dense and not fun watching even if it is very important and explains a lot. Much like Stephen Coughlin. In fact, Maj. Coughlin actually used those videos in some of his writing and briefs.

But here is James Lindsay, (the Prof. who busted the whole peer-review process with the publication of his phoney essay on “Rape Culture at a Dog Park”) demonstrates how repressive tolerance was devised and is used.

Ultimately, one uses tolerance to do two things.

Move the culture ever leftwards

Be maximally destructive to Western Civilization.

Subsequent to writing this response to Johnny, an example of same leapt to my attention on my phone. Almost as if Google was carefully tracking my interests.

Here is the aforementioned Polish academic explaining how Marxism uses homosexuality as a destructive force on Western civilization

(Actually it’s about much more than that, and worth every second of the 13:42 it lasts.)

Now in case anyone gets the idea that you can beat this thing by simply not going to see crappy commie themed movies like the one she refrences, let’s stop and think about what a social credit score and CBDC actually means. If you don’t go and see whatever propaganda is put out before you, and pay for it with what means you have, you just might get turned down for that critical loan or other item you need for yourself, your business or your family. Hell you may not even be able to see your family.

For that matter, you may not be able to access what you thought of as ‘your own money’. I think a few hundred truckers and people who contributed small amounts to a legal protest over removal of basic civil liberties in Ottawa may be able to see how that can happen.

And if anyone still thinks that the scenario I just described is too far out to be true, you simply have not been paying attention for the past twenty years. Even the last three.

  1. Precise writing, Eeyore, on a needed refresher on the concept of Repressive Tolerance. Thanks.

    And I will add that NOT actively participating in communist propaganda, and suffering social and financial consequences as a result, is very real. This happened in the Soviet Union to those who chose not to join the Communist party. Even then lip service was mandatory. In fact, while education sans propaganda in Hungary, for example, was first rate, the fact that Hungary had one of the highest suicide rates in the world under that gulag system was proof of the dehumanizing effect of real education coupled with the stripping of every individual’s core identity.

    It truly is an evil that, as Neil Oliver eloquently states in his Christmas message, we must turn our backs on before it is too late for us to do so.

    • This is a great example, IMO.

      CBC’s Rosie Barton interviews Justin Trudeau. Surprise! Justin-enamored Rosie has a nasty tone.

      While some think Rosie is going through the Great Awakening, quite the opposite is occurring. She is actually opening the door to make Justin look good.


      And then, we have the medical artificial intelligence issue that is creeping its way into our lives. So, yes, Justin will do his best to help even one Canadian in a particular province.

  2. The war on Christmas is just one front in the arrack on Western Civilization. To destroy Western Civ. the left has to destroy the Judo/Christian moral code that is the foundation of Western Civ.

    We see this destruction in all of the forced tolerance of the many perversions of human sex. I remember when homosexuality was considered a mental problem. The left has successfully changed this to a “normal” sexual preference that our kids are taught in school. The left is now attempting to normalize pedophilia, incest and cannibalism.

    If we are to survive as a society we must resist the lefts attacks.

    • When I was in high school, there was only 2 red dead’s. I learned at an early age some people did not like me because of my red hair – mostly other girls, nasty girls. I felt sorry for them, I knew I was different from others, my dad always told me I had hair of gold, I was beautiful. He also said God created all men equal.

      All these years later, and they are an awful lot, I see a lot of jealous, nasty, bullies, the only difference they are supposedly adults. They may never grow up, but that is not my fault.

      I am so tired of negative, useless idiots. If we are to survive as a society, we need to stop being so forgiving, stop the ugly, nasty bullies: Justine Trudeau, Freeland, Carney, Gill-Bo and ALL the World Economic Forum crazies. It is not our fault these people turned out to be Godless freaks. The sky is NOT falling, the world is not going to end because these freaks say so.

      We need to start and put children first, not all the freaks of the world. THEY need to grow up, stop being so damn negative, TRIGGERED, what ever the hell that means.

      I was not allowed to travel and see my darling grandchildren on this Christmas Day because of the madmen and women of this world, but I have made the best of the day. I am listening to beautiful music, marvelling at Edna – Sarah Brightman’s voice. The deer will be here for their Christmas dinner and I will open the window a little for them to hear her God given marvellous voice.

      This is a joyful day, enjoy it, hug your loved ones, even the ones who have strayed a little from all that is decent. Keep on the sunny side. The New Year is full of promise for me and I won’t back down.

      • Same here E T, I am alone but not really alone.

        I have beautiful music on my favorite online radio station, great Christmas songs, and I also have two wonderful singers that happen to be my budgies. These two guys love Christmas songs.

        They accept me the way I am, they have a true love for me, they never ask for anything other than bedtime. And they love sampling my food.

        We are many people who are alone, some by choice such as myself, and I am happy this way as long as I have my vocal pet companions.

        And me, neither, I will never back down.

        Have a great year-end.
