You don't believe that there were oppressors and oppressed before Karl Marx was born?
Karl Marx didn't invent oppressors and oppressed.. He pitted them against each other. This is what cultural Marxism does in the form of identity politics.. in which huwhites are excluded, demonized.

You cannot get identity politics out of Karl Marx at all- Marx wrote a lot and if you focus in on certain parts of his writings you can paints him as a lot on the historic Left but identity politics is not one of them. What is called "Cultural Marxism" is actually very un-Marxian- Fine Gael is basically "Cultural Marxist" but seriously Leo Little Girls' Socks has probably never read Marx and I seriously doubt he has ever been a Social Democrat let alone a Socialist.

Sure you can, why do you think it's called cultural marxism?

A forerunner, but not the same thing, would be cultural relativism.

I don't think that Marx was a Jew. His da was Jewish but converted to Lutheranism rather than Catholicism which in his part of Germany would have made a lot more business sense, his mam was a non-Jewish German so that precludes him being Jewish according to the laws of Judaism. He was a German with one Jewish parent. In fact you by modern standards he was anti-Semitic. It has been argued that he was this dangerous anti-Semitic ideologue.

True, but he had the dark skin of the Hebrew race and that made him an outsider in the Aryan Europe. That fact did play a large part in his emotional response to what he saw before him. In short, he was an outsider by birth. So where the vast majority of Europeans, i.e. the Proletarians, but they did not have access to the kind of education and time to think that Marx had.

Oppressors and oppressed were always pitted against each other. The Greeks thought they were oppressed by the Persians, the Celts by the Romans. And in the Roman Republic, the Plebians were pitted against the Patricians. None of this is in any way new or the work of Marx.

Jews are a race first and foremost.

It's called Cultural Marxism, because Liberal elements took the economic discoveries and methods of Marx and applied them to culture as an entity divorced from economic forces. The Soviet Union condemned this erroneous abuse of Marx's thought. You cannot separate culture from economics, as our Lib Left do today.

Not by Karl Marx. What he did was make it a (supposed) "economic theory"

Jews are a race and admit so themselves.
Oh they think so but it is nonsense. Yemenite Jews are biologically to the Ostjuden really?



Those lads are racially the same as these ones?



Who are racially the same as these ones?
