I was looking for a place to post this video, and nowhere really made sense, so I figured I’d start a thread.

American culture is something that interests me a fair bit as I have a lot of ties to the place. I also think it’s a great influencer of western culture in general, which isn’t such a good thing these days.

I hope this thread doesn’t turn into a slanging match about how terrible the place is, more that it might me a place to analyze or talk about what’s happening.

Anyway, I came across this video after listening to a few interviews with Ben Shapiro, and wanted to post it. I just don’t know how this kind of thing has become acceptable, or in the case of America, encouraged and promoted. There are a lot of worrying developments in America, with the gender carry on, the safe spaces, trigger warnings, and god knows what else on college campuses.

But what they’re doing to their children seems to me a case for international intervention, and I don’t say that lightly.

Alot of it was these New Left philosopher types who went into exile after the Nazis came to power and started synthesising in American universities their ideology that entailed family was intrinsically fascist. This kind of stuff enters academia and is disseminated through the institutions and becomes normalised -- at least within metropolitan America.

These New Left types criticised -- to their immense credit btw -- mass consumerism and the like. But this didn't stop the more toxic part of their ideology from detaching itself and intertwining itself with the very trash culture they despised. The sexualisation of children is just an advanced stage in this process, process that has become bored and thus tries to yet breach new barriers of excess.

The transgender stuff is particularly bizarre though. It's cultish in the sense that it makes pseudoreligious claims about having a woman;s "soul" trapped in a man's body and the institutions abide by these claims and grant access to chemicals and even surgeries that they assert result in men transforming into women. Medical institutions should not be flattering the fantasies of mentally disturbed people and even performing disfiguring surgeries on the basis of it. It throws the confidence one has in the medical institutions into serious doubt if it can abandon itself to such lunacy without flinching. That children are being used as a 'plaything' for such ideologies is unbelievably evil.

The American military even foots the medical bills for these 'transitions' when it’s soldiers wanting them. That Manning character I believe is getting his/her/it's change paid for by the American taxpayer.

Lunacy doesn’t do it justice.

I think these "culture wars" are fought on the fringes of society.
Most people just go on as normal, but modern media makes all of this seem more all encompassing than it actually is.
I get what your saying,
But we are not talking about 6 billion. As our example, Ireland's primary influences are from the english speaking world. Movies/Music etc... is mainly coming from america, and everyone is feeding that information into them through their phones. A lot of us on here are from a time when such access wasn't there until we were already adults. I think the effects of this is much more dramatic on the younger generations. That coupled with the high rates of single parent households in this country, kids are being raised on youtube and other such sources of information.

You can even hear that influence in the accents of young people in Ireland today, they’re becoming indiscernible from American accents, especially in Dublin.

Yeah, that’s all pretty basic stuff tbf. I figured the op might explain that this thread would be trying to avoid agendas.

Tragically, this particular case is no outlier, there’s a considerable push in America to give young children the right to choose their gender, give them hormone treatments, provide bathrooms in schools for transgendered children, etc. California has even passed a law to make it illegal to 'mispronoun' people, that comes with fines, and up to a year in jail. Similar laws are being passed in Canada too, interestingly enough.

I suppose adults can choose to do whatever they want, regardless of how unhealthy it might be, but when it becomes socially and legally acceptable to do these sorts of things to children, that's a whole different matter.
I attribute the decline to a few things: the promotion of low culture into high culture, the influence of the Frankfurt School and Cultural Marxists' increasingly successful campaign to demonize Christianity, the West and whites and the homosexualists' use of the media as a Trojan Horse to further their agenda and marginalize and cow non-conformists. American TV is rife with examples of white male father figures who are lampooned as fat oafs and dullards, whereas homosexual and transvestite men are glowingly portrayed as witty, impeccably dressed and physically fit. It certainly doesn't help that Hollywood is full of amoral deviants, homosexual and otherwise.

What's transpiring in California is nothing short of Orwellian. Hell, I live in a town full of rednecks (myself included), and even here transsexuals (and ugly ones at that) live among us. God help us!

I have only so much tears to shed, and I will shed them for my ain wee Celtic countries and to a certain extent England. I cannot emotionally afford to be concerned about the USA outside of how it effects my kith and kin. I know this sounds brutal and in a way it is, however in my experience those who claim to love everyone love no one.
Exactly, there is about 150,oooooo useless people in this country now just taking up space. I would cure this one by cutting off her welfare.

Have you ever read this book

Amazon.com: Buying Choices: None Dare Call It Treason: 25 Years Later

I had 2 copies and I foolishly gave one away. They are expensive. $55 and up, getting to be a collectors item

The 1964 first book is in paperback at about 12 dollars used

I think I recall Chomsky once saying that after equal human rights were achieved for blacks in the US the main battle was won, but that the same forces weren't happy to stop there and went on to try to continually break down barriers so to speak.

The result being the acceptance of the kind of madness highlighted in the OP. Madness that is lauded by a media that seems to want to demonize any resistance to further breaking down of barriers.

Somewhere along the way common sense and traditional values were lost IMO, to be replaced by an embracement of the Liberal PC doctrine we see today. Go against it and you're a fascist.

Ben Shapiro - Transfer is not a dirty word

He has called for the ethnic cleansing of Palestine. Nasty wee creep.
Yes Shapiro seems to get a thrill out of the slaughter of Palestinian children. He is heavily promoted on YouTube and American/Jewish media to get younger people supporting the Zionist regime. They have a problem as the American young people aren't all following Israels agenda unlike the old evangelicals.
