~~~ o ~~~ GRASPING THE NETTLE ~~~ o ~~~~

When I speak with people on the anti-establishment right and digest their vlogs and news sources online, often they believe there is some sort of conspiracy going on with the left – that everything’s orchestrated behind the scenes with a hidden end in mind: that of elite totalitarian dictatorship, or something along those lines.

There is talk of a Cultural Marxist conspiracy – although during all my years involved with leftists, I was never taken aside and told about any such hush-hush plan. I hear a lot of talk about Common Purpose training – as if everyone who undergoes a training course comes out a zombie believer. (Not that I’ve ever undergone Common Purpose training. It may be the case.)

One of those who bangs on about Common Purpose is a certain Brian Gerrish, who also talks about Neuro-Linguistic Programming and its disturbing power to brainwash. This is something I do have extensive experience in. I spent several years and much money trying to get this pseudoscientific pop psychology mumbo jumbo to live up to its outlandish overhyped claims. It’s snake oil sold to people who dream of having influence over others and it basically doesn’t work, because most people aren’t that stupid.

There is no great Cultural Marxist conspiracy because, to be a conspiracy, it would have to be a secret, and lefties make no secret of what they think and what they want to do. Indeed, they can’t help mouthing off about it at every possible opportunity. You just need to go online, to a university campus, a meeting, campaign group or bookshop.

Many leftist in responsible positions would be rather condescending about the likes of the SWP, old communists and hippies I’ve talked about in other articles in this series. They’re doing the serious day-to-day work of working with central and local government, schools and universities, other public bodies, the EU & UN, NGOs, funding bodies and big business to further their agenda. Long gone are the days when they would need to be quiet about working to change the system from within. They are now the establishment. Their objectives are now official policy and law.

The propaganda is now so all-pervasive, it’s even got to people you would expect to be a bulwark against it. The establishment forces of conservatism surrendered years ago. Many in the Conservative Party – even sections of UKIP – are so scared of the bitter hatred of the left and the consequences of being tarred with the ‘far right’ brush that they dare not challenge it, and in some cases they actually buy into it – after all they’ve often come up through the same institutions and move in the same circles.

Grassroots leftists still make the mistake of seeing themselves in opposition to big business and the ruling class. What has happened over the years is that Cultural Marxism has come to an accommodation with corporatism, which has enabled them to work hand-in-hand. Big businesses are interested in growth and profits. They don’t care about nations, peoples, culture, families or personal freedom. They don’t care what race, nationality, sex, sexual orientation or gender identity their customers or employees are. They do care about their brand image, so if trumpeting their politically correct credentials makes them look good, they’ll wholeheartedly walk the talk.

The leftists, at least the ones in power, are more muted in their criticism of fat cat salaries, concentration of wealth, runaway consumerism and offshoring jobs to countries with poor wages, conditions and environmental controls. Instead they focus on identity politics, which doesn’t threaten the economic status quo. Standards and regulations are agreed with the input of big business and serve as barriers to entry from smaller enterprises, to protect their position.

Totally on board as I am with the sovereignty and free trade arguments which drove Brexit, my main objection to the EU is that I view it an institution which enables a cosy establishment of Cultural Marxists to by-pass democracy to irreversibly impose their agenda on a whole continent, rendering citizens and governments powerless under EU law. Brexit is not an end in itself. It’s just a first step in taking back control. I believe the hysterical reaction to the Brexit vote has proved me right.

Surely those at the very top – our national leaders, their corporate backers and the security apparatus – know full well what’s happening and where we’re headed. Why would our leaders push this, or let it happen? Why would the ruling class shit on their own doorstep? Surely the want to live in safe prosperous Western countries like the rest of us? Surely they would prefer to rule over an industrious law-abiding European populace than a volatile Islamic one?

Well they don’t see it that way. They too have been through a university system, with leftist professors, whose gender studies, women’s studies, revisionism and deconstructionism are today’s equivalent of the National Socialists’ ‘racial science’ courses. They have been indoctrinated by the same entertainment culture, mass media and ‘equality and diversity’ training. The all talk the Cultural Marxist lingo and the political correctness goes right to the top. They live in an echo chamber with other politicians, the media, NGOs and metropolitan dinner parties. They don’t live in the places bearing the brunt of the strain on our social fabric.

They associate national identity with racism, fascism and Nazism. It is therefore imperative to break it. They repeat the “diversity is strength” mantra. They believe we need young immigrant workers to pay for the pensions of our ageing population – but this is a fallacy as the immigrants themselves will grow old too, requiring yet further infusions of immigrants. For big business, immigrants are cheap labour, and a growing economy means a growing market. Whether refugees are real or bogus, it doesn’t matter, all immigration is great.

There is no conspiracy. It’s not that intelligent. The ship it sails without a captain.

Now that’s a really scary thought.

About Comrade K (42 Articles)
Part of the London diaspora, Comrade K. now lives in exile in Cardiff, where he is active in his local UKIP branch. He has come a circuitous political route from enjoying winding-up leftists at school, but then, because he thought the ‘60s seemed really cool even though he wasn’t there, indulging revolutionary socialist fantasies during his student years, even going so extreme as becoming a Labour party activist for several years. K. however eventually came round to sense and, despite being seduced by some green philosophies which he still hasn’t entirely repudiated, realised that free-thinking, intelligence and individuality is something entirely different to mindlessly repeating what all his trendy friends and celebrity icons told him … plus he found that going along with feminism didn’t get him girlfriends after all.


  1. “They believe we need young immigrant workers to pay for the pensions of our ageing population – but this is a fallacy as the immigrants themselves will grow old too, requiring yet further infusions of immigrants.”

    …and so the question becomes, why aren’t citizens having babies? The answer: Because they have too much debt, young people can’t even afford a place to live let alone, for 3 people to live. We need to return to the economy of when fertility was higher.

  2. ENTER THE INSTITUTIONS OF STATE AND FAMILY. MEDIA, EDUCATION, CIVIL SERVICE EVEN THE CHURCH that was the cry of the cultural marxists and it appears to be successful. George Orwell predicted the appearance of such tactics. Harry Pollit chairman of the Communist party UK gave this instruction soon after the war to a political society in Oxford Universtity.

  3. I could be wrong but isn’t Steve Crowther Common Purpose?

  4. Common Purposes input in the lefty agenda is in my opinion, not to do with any brainwashing, it is to do with identifying the opinions of their graduates. They go through quite an intensive training program that reveals what their politics are, whether they support and like the EU for example. It’s really quite a simple idea that the Tories have been adopting in their candidate selection lists, since the 1950’s at least, probably much longer.The filter process continues in Parliament. It very rare for a Brexit supporting MP to be a Minister and is no accident. It’s by design.
    Most of the students that go to Common Purpose are from the Public Sector,

    So for the Public Sector they have their own filter too in Common Purpose and they identify a pro EU graduate, he gets the phone call later for that vacancy at the top in the Police, Army, NHS, in the civil service, in the school, etc etc., meanwhile the graduate who expressed anti-EU opinions never gets the call, may even be demoted, pushed out, sacked, be badgered and bullied until he/she resigns. Within a decade or too, the entire establishment appear to like the EU.
    How long have Common Purpose being operational? 1989? It’s more than long enough to replace everyone at the top of every department in the public service anywhere where it matters, with completely useless a***holes more concerned about diversity that actually doing their job.

  5. Some very interesting comments. Thank you all.

  6. Maybe this is over definition but I think a conspiracy can be open, as well as secret.

    Quite clearly a lot of the changes involving Cultural Marxism have been conspired towards – such as the campaign for the redefinition of marriage in Europe.

    Is it really credible that the sudden explosion of gender fluidity and the amazing unquestioning support from the establishment where we have gone from reality to you lose your job for pointing on the facts in just one or two years didn’t have a conspiracy behind it ?

  7. Personally I don’t think it matters one iota whether there is some great master plan or not. Whether Marxists are using Muslims or whether they are in some covert arrangement To achieve world domination.
    A number of issues need to be opposed by anyone who wants to continue the British/Western European cultures.
    Mass uncontrolled immigration from Asia and Africa.
    The islamification of the West.
    Political correctness.
    Those four evils must be challenged at every opportunity.

    • Do I detect from the “Today” programme this morning that Europe will shortly experience the “saving of The Coptic Christians” in Egypt. Reminiscent of the Asians/Idi Amin scenario I’d say ….. which brought us the likes of Yasmin Alibhai-Brown.

  8. There is an alliance between capitalism and communism who both now share the same aims or some of them. Very curious and almost ignored. Both of course hope to outwit the other and get all the prizes. It’s rather like the Nazi Soviet pact.

    Meanwhile the left hopes to use Muslims as useful idiots then dump them. Some hopes. The Muslims the reverse with plenty of hopes.

  9. “There is no great Cultural Marxist conspiracy because, to be a conspiracy, it would have to be a secret, and lefties make no secret of what they think and what they want to do.”

    WRONG. Bilderberg is secret. Nearly every Western country (not Hungary, notably) Goldman Sachs and others. Everything went wrong at the end of the 90s, when EVERY Western government went full-on Marxist – about the time Blair got in – “equality” laws, massive muslim immigration, suppression of free speech. It’s no coincidence, and too coordinated across the Western world to be anything else but a conspiracy.

  10. Excellent, intelligent post.

  11. “In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.”
    Franklin D. Roosevelt

    We in the West suddenly decided that we wished to be flooded with unassimilable aliens at ever mounting cost to the indigenous peoples.

    We in the West sudddenly decided that two genders were insufficient to encompass the variations implicit in XX or XY.

    Comrade K is a disinformation specialist. That Brian Gerrish or whoever has not named the plotters is totally irrelevent. That there is a plot and plotters and these people operate in secret and disseminate their vile destructive philosophy through institutions like the UN, the EU, the educational establishment, the MSM etc is incontrovertible.

    • Please add charities to your list. Along with universities and the aid industry, they are the es that pay the big salaries to lefties to sustain their work. Take the NSPCC for example, study the backgrounds of their executive board, of 7 only 1 has background in children’s services, but most were Labour Party including ex-chairman of party, head of strategy spent most career at main Labour think-tank, etc. Each paid >£100k. NO social conservatives. And they go around primary schools setting kids against parents teaching about sexual abuse to 8 year olds.

      • To illustrate Graham’s point,Jo Cox’s husband Brendan was a top honcho in Save the Children (and one time adviser to Labour PMs) before his ‘inappropriate behaviour’ demanded his resignation (together with his chum who had identical antecedents).

    • A “Disinformation specialist” huh? I didn’t realise I was so highly skilled.

  12. Excellent post, really interesting. In fact there always excellent posts on UKIP Daily, far more than the ‘official’ UKIP output from all those fabulously paid MEPs whose full time job it is to COMMUNICATE a) with the members and b) with the public. And what have we had from HQ in the 500 days since winning the referendum and now slowly losing Brexit? Half of diddly squat as far as I can see, two emails from Henry in 5 weeks and a couple of weak petitions. Our own ship sails without a captain.

  13. Seems to me you either believe the likes of Vernon Coleman or Richard Atkinson, that the EU was designed for the purpose of establishing the coudenhove kalergi philosophy and all that entails. Or you don’t.

    Now, I do. But then I followed the links and joined the dots and the realisation dawned that everything being done is deliberate, incl the Islamic invasion, and the battleground is becoming exposing the WHY. and then supporting patriots and exposing the traitors. Or Brexit mutineers as the Telegraph put it.

    Lab/Con are now both sides of the same common purpose coin imho and we all need to get onside with the patriots while we can.

  14. A flock of starlings in flight appears to function as a single organism as the flock swoops and changes direction yet there is no leader of the flock.

    Comrade K’s point is that Cultural Marxism is not codified but expressed variously across and within nations with enough commonality to be called an ideology but without a captain ordering updates or a committee acting conspiratorially. Like a flock of starlings they swooped on our institutions but they were not led or directed.

    • The captain is Bilderberg.

    • The murmuration is a good analogy. The effect appears, to the naked eye, as instantaneous and is created by what is called scale-free correlation. A study in 2010 found individuals consistently coordinate their movements with their seven nearest neighbours; seven being optimal for the typical densities of their flocks. Just one reacting imperceptibly to a potential predator or wind current, will trigger group reaction, like a particle starting an avalanche. The group’s path is totally unpredictable, being a reaction to a series of random individual perturbations magnified thousands of times

      You can see the effect in the way the left picks up and runs with every and any new sub-division of the sexual spectrum, real or imagined, however minuscule the numbers. No one starts it, but each nudges another seven or so and before you know it, it’s another phobia to be championed and get enraged about and with which to bludgeon free speech further out of the park.

  15. Some interesting insights here but the author sets up a false dichotomy – he may be right that there is “no conspiracy” but that does not mean that “the ship..sails without a captain”.

    These two options are not mutually exhaustive.

    The ship of corporatist globalism most certainly has “a captain” and that captain is its unifying ideology of political correctness (or “cultural Marxism” or “Common Purpose”, if you prefer).

    Marine Le Pen was right in saying that the real political divide now is not left versus right but globalist versus nationalist/identitarian.

    But the nationalist/traditionalist opponents of political correctness and globalism are at sixes and sevens because they have not clarified amongst themselves a unifying ideology. They are divided as to how much of political correctness to reject and how much to accept. For example, most nationalists/traditionalists accept anti-racism but not all accept “gender fluidity” or gay marriage.

    Also here in the UK the nationalists/ traditionalists are divided on priorities – e.g. which is the more urgent priority – opposing Islamification or trying to achieve Brexit? There is no common agreement here.

    • Nicely put and I agree except that globalist vs nationalist is another false dichotomy. Free trade and cooperation is mutually beneficial but free movement is causing huge problems at both ends. We need to stop using these labels, lumping things together under ideological umbrellas. Policies should be fact-based and democratic, no more, no less.

      • Thank you for pointing out the danger of ambiguity in broad labels such as “globalism”.

        Nevertheless, I disagree that globalism versus nationalism is a false dichotomy. You are interpreting globalism in a particular way to mean principally free trade and co-operation.

        I have no objection to free trade and co-operation betwen independent nation states. But for me this is not what globalism means. Globalism means the destruction of traditional nation states through open borders, mass immigration and the destruction of democracy through through the creation of undemocratic supernational governing organisations like the EU.

        Trade has its place, but for me it is not inconsistent with national independence and indeed is, if the two conflict, subordinate to it.

        The kind of globalism of which I speak is a total world-view – and certainly not “fact-based” or “democratic”.

        • Then our disagreement is merely over terminology rather than anything material, but people who advocate globalism do often connect it to free trade. Again the dangers of labeling crop up.
