We Lose the Culture War?
By Servando Gonzalez
July 15, 2016
The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.
— Mark Twain.
After the fall of the Soviet Union, the Russians finally realized
that they had been given the short end of the stick and began
fighting their new oppressors, the IMF, the World Bank and transnational
corporations. Angered by their reaction, U.S. Secretary of
State John Kerry (CFR) told them: “You lost the Cold War.
Get Over It.”
In a similar fashion, Harvard Professor Mark Tushnet recently
posted in his blog an entry entitled “Abandoning Defensive
Crouch Liberal Constitutionalism,” in which he claims that
we, the American people, have lost the culture war, and advises
the winners to give us the same treatment given to the Germans
and Japanese after they lost WWII.
In his post, Professor Tushnet defines what he calls “Defensive
Crouch Liberal Constitutionalism” as a way of acting in
which “every liberal position asserted nervously, its proponents
looking over their shoulders for retaliation by conservatives
(in its elevated forms, fear of a backlash against aggressively
In his arrogance, however, Kerry forgot that the Russians had
defeated the Nazis in WWII and the fool professor apparently has
forgotten that, contrary to the Germans and the Japanese after
WWII, the Americans he claims have lost the culture war own millions
of firearms and are ready to use them. He also forgot Mao’s
dictum that power comes out of the barrel of a gun.
According to Tushnet,
The culture wars are over; they lost, we won.
… For liberals, the question now is how to deal with the
losers in the culture wars. That’s mostly a question of
tactics. My own judgment is that taking a hard line (“You
lost, live with it”) is better than trying to accommodate
the losers, who – remember – defended, and are defending,
positions that liberals regard as having no normative pull at
all. Trying to be nice to the losers didn’t work well
after the Civil War … (And taking a hard line seemed to
work reasonably well in Germany and Japan after 1945.) I should
note that LGBT activists in particular seem to have settled
on the hard-line approach, while some liberal academics defend
more accommodating approaches. When specific battles in the
culture wars were being fought, it might have made sense to
try to be accommodating after a local victory, because other
related fights were going on, and a hard line might have stiffened
the opposition in those fights. But the war’s over, and
Of course, Professor Tushnet posted his hateful
piece of trash on May 6, 2016, that is, before the Brexit and
the surge of Donald Trump’s popularity. So, paraphrasing
Mark Twain I can say that the reports that we lost the Culture
War have been greatly exaggerated. Nevertheless, we have to recognize
that, until recently, we were losing the Culture War, and the
reason for it was because most of us didn’t realize that
we were at war at all.
What we are currently experiencing is the final steps of a long,
protracted war against the American people. It began a century
ago in Woodrow Wilson’s era, or perhaps even before, when
the battleship Maine was mysteriously blown up in Havana’s
bay, and this war has not abated. This is not a conventional war
waged with tanks, battleships and planes in conventional battlefields
— at least not yet.
It is a secret, insidious type of war whose main battleground
is the people’s minds. Its main weapons are propaganda and
mass brainwashing mostly by using disinformation, deception and
lies on a large scale not used against the people of a nation
since the end of Nazi Germany. Though important, those elements
are just part of a series of carefully planned and executed long
and short-term psychological warfare operations.
The reason why the CFR conspirators have resorted to defeat the
American people using a much more devious form of war, a PsyWar,
is because Americans love freedom and are armed to the teeth to
defend their freedom.
Now, what is a PsyWar? According to the U.S. Army’s
Joint Strategic Plans Committee, August 2, 1948,
Psychological warfare employs all moral and physical means, other
than orthodox military operations, which tend to:
destroy the will and the ability of the enemy
deprive him of the support of his allies and neutrals;
increase in our own troops and allies the will to victory.
Psychological warfare employs any weapon to influence the mind
of the enemy. The weapons are psychological only in the effect
they produce and not because of the nature of the weapons themselves.
In this light, overt (white), covert (black), and gray propaganda;
subversion; sabotage; special operations; guerrilla warfare;
espionage’s political, cultural, economic, and racial
pressures are all effective weapons. They are effective because
they produce dissention, distrust, fear and hopelessness in
the minds of the enemy, not because they originate in the psyche
of propaganda or psychological warfare agencies.
Of late, however, particularly after the 9/11
events and even more after Barry Soetoro moved to the White House,
the existence of this conspiracy has become more evident for anybody
with eyes to see. This is only because the conspirators were so
confident that they were so close to their goal that, in their
arrogance, they became careless. They despise us so much that
they didn’t care about what we can do to defend ourselves
from their devious attack.
Nevertheless, despite that the existence of this conspiracy became
obvious and most people suspected that something was very wrong,
still a large percentage of the American people were unable to
pinpoint the true source of the conspiracy. Most of them had been
brainwashed to believe that just by changing the treacherous rascals
in Washington D.C. everything would be okay.
That was the mistake made by the Republicans in 2000, when they
got rid of Clinton to have Bush, and by the Democrats in 2008,
when they trashed Bush to get Obama. But, as the true liberals
in the Democratic Party soon found out, just by changing the puppets
and leaving the puppet-masters untouched would not solve the problem.
Currently, a powerful psychological warfare operation (PsyOp)
is in place to convince diehard Republicans that Trump will not
be the solution to the problem. I hope that when the true conservatives
among the Republicans discover their mistake it would not be too
late to correct it.
What Professor Tushnet seemingly ignores is that the “progressive”
(I call them “regressives”) Leftists waging the Culture
War against us are not winning because of their cleverness, insight
and intelligence, but because of the hidden support of the most
reactionary Right, including Republican traitors, is giving them.
Proof of it is that the so-called gains of the progressive Left
— gay rights, women’s rights, sexual liberation, social
justice, pro-abortion laws, open borders, affirmative action,
forced integration in schools, free trade, globalization —
came hand in hand with huge economic inequality, destruction of
the working and farming classes, further obscene enrichment of
the one percent, iniquitous exploitation of workers and farmers
in Third World countries, corporate crime, pervasive government
corruption, massive unemployment, a police state, government-sponsored
terrorism, widespread surveillance, loss of personal freedom and
unending imperialist wars to protect the interests of bankers
This is not the result of happenstance or chance. Unknowingly,
Liberal “progressives” became the useful fools manipulated
by the corporate and banking elites they claim to hate to implement
their communo-fascist New Gay World Order — which is anything
but Leftist or progressive by any stretch of the imagination.
Tushnet believes the cultural war is over, and they won it. Apparently
he is still immersed in the false reality created by the “progressive”
Left. I’ll bet that he faithfully reads the New Yorker
and New York Times, listens to NPR News and
watches NBC. So, he ignores that currently there is an
awakening of the American people and people all around the world
who are sick and tired of being manipulated and lied to. He also
seemingly ignores that, if Trump reaches the White House, one
of the first things he will do is open an investigation about
Barry Soetoro and, once the impostor is proven guilty of his many
crimes and sent to jail to join Hillary, all the executives orders
he signed will be nullified and the corrupt judges he has appointed
will be automatically fired.
The second thing Trump will most likely do is to open a truly
impartial investigation of the 9/11 events — which will
end up by sending Bush, Cheney and some neocons to join their
buddies Barry and Hillary. Hopefully, we will finally find a good
use for Guantanamo.
Tushnet is dead wrong. The Culture War is not over; actually it
has just begun.
Previously there was no war in the strict sense, because one section
of the American people didn’t know there was a war being
conducted against them. But now we know, and it is time to launch
a devastating PsyWar counterattack to force the conspirators to
One conclusion one may arrive at after reading Tushnet’s
piece is that the communo-fascist “Liberals” don’t
see us just as opponents they have to take political power from.
Like genocidal war criminal General William Sherman, who advocated
the extermination, not the coexistence with Native Americans,
the progressive Left sees us as enemies they have to conquer,
enslave and destroy.
So, I think that, following Tushnet’s advice, once we win
this war we should treat the losers the same way he advises his
lefty friends to treat us.
Nobody has won a war on the defensive. It is time to give the
communo-fascist elitists a taste of their own medicine.
It takes two to tango.
