    Personally I feel that if you're anti-Kermit the Frog you are anti-Britain.

    I feel that they have about the same relevance as the OP's assertion.

    It's not our job to alleviate your ignorance. Try using wikipedia. :rolleyes:

    Here is the first line as a gift "Cultural Marxism is a term referring to a group of Marxists who have sought to apply critical theory to matters of family composition, gender, race, and cultural identity within Western society.".

    Couldn't stop laughing at "British character has done so much for democracy". Thanks 'British Character' for shipping my ancestors around in the slave trade you guys practically mastered and for coming to Africa, colonising my mother's homeland, taking so much of our valuable resources, leaving us in a state of mess and now owing oh so much money in debt. We loved your 'British character'. :rolleyes:

    As a basic rule, any rightie who uses the term 'Cultural Marxism' has no idea what he's talking about. Cultural Marxism, which basically is what the Frankfurt School did (as well as some others like Gramsci), is a descriptive philosophy, not a prescriptive one. It's about analysis of capitalist and state society.

    Having said that, let's actually take a look at OP.

    (Original post by nicknick1)
    Margaret Thatcher, the British Prime Minister who stuck to her convictions to reverse the decline of Britain
    What 'decline'? The decline of the British Empire? That had gone a while before Thatcher and I'd argue a good job too. The economy? Yes, there was a crisis of Keynesianism in the 1970s. And Thatcher didn't solve it, just postponed it for a couple of decades while introducing neoliberalism.

    the public have subscribed to cultural Marxism and been brainwashed by state and corporate funded cultural Marxist programming e.g. through schools or the BBC.
    Seriously? :rolleyes: the BBC and schooling system promote the status quo.

    Some Thatcher quotes:

    On communism: “Communist regimes were not some unfortunate aberration, some historical deviation from a socialist ideal. They were the ultimate expression, unconstrained by democratic and electoral pressures, of what socialism is all about. In short, the state is everything and the individual nothing.”
    [Time Magazine, 14Jul79]
    So she's arguing that stateless societies can involve states? In short, she's not got a clue what she's talking about.

    On balanced state budgets: "Any woman who understands the problems of running a home will be nearer to understanding the problems of running a country." (meaning that in the same way a household needs to balance it’s income and expenditure, so does a state.)
    State debt is nothing like household debt, pretty much everyone acknowledges this.

    When there were vast disagreements in the Commonwealth regarding South African sanctions, Mrs. Thatcher retained her own vies against Britain’s involvement in sanctions despite the fact that she knew that this might have broken up the commonwealth.
    In other words, she was happy to prop up a fascist apartheid regime in South Africa.

    Well, everyone on the left 'recognises' this because they're more than happy to rewrite history in order salvage New Labour's economic reputation, but anyone with more than two braincells to rub together realises that not even the state can go on spending indefinitely without having some negative impact on either the economy or the money supply.

    State debt is exactly like household debt because they both act as a drag upon your finances.

    On topic...

    Many hated Thatcher as a PM, believing her aspirations for Britain were wrong. So if you're anti-Thatcher...well you're just anti-Thatcher.

    "cultural marxism" is what Brevik was on about

    wtf is it anyway? I'm fairly familiar with Marx and Marxist thought, but "cultural Marxism" appears to have been dreamt up by far right nutters
    Cultural Marxist is a term used to describe those who want to supplant the ideals of the Enlightenment; liberty, free trade, reason and atheism etc with Marxist restrictions that seek to control us from every conceivable angle. For example communists reject the concept of national borders but know that Western citizens won't go for it if they state their objectives bluntly, so instead they seek to wage a cultural war by manipulating the language and criminalsiing those that speak out on issues such as mass immigration, the public in turn learn to shut up just in case and the CM's slowly acheive their objectives by elimiting the opposition to national boundaries.

    Your title is interesting. Given that Margaret Thatcher was responsible for wide-scale denationalisation I struggle... never mind...
