The commercial media is bean-counting of how many times a name appears in Breivik's Manifesto. What seldom gets mentioned is that Breivik has a core thesis which Breivik makes many times in many ways. Here it is in my formula for explaining Breivik's thesis:

The commercial media is bean-counting of how many times a name appears in Breivik's Manifesto. What seldom gets mentioned is that Breivik has a core thesis which Breivik makes many times in many ways. Here it is in my formula for explaining Breivik's thesis:

Cultural Marxism=Political Correctness=Multiculturalism=Muslim Immigration=Destruction of Judeo-Christian nations

In other words, Breivik believes that "Political Correctness" should be exposed as a conspiracy by "Cultural Marxists" to destroy sovereign Christian nations and is the reason for political leaders allowing mass Muslim migration into Europe.

This is my summary of what Breivik himself writes repeatedly throughout his Manifesto. The theoretical lineage of Breivk's thesis is from cultural conservative William S. Lind and the LaRouche network.

And since bean-counting matters:

Brevik Manifesto includes some variation of the words multicultural 1164 times

Brevik Manifesto includes some variation of the words Marx and Marxism 1137 times

Brevik Manifesto includes the term "political correctness" 148 times

Breivik in his Manifesto, incorporates whole sections of other authors work. The Manifesto is a compendium. From the blogger "Fjordman" Breivik includes this sentence:

"Samuel Huntington mentioned already in 1993 in his famous article "The Clash of Civilisations" in the journal Foreign Affairs"

Fjordman's essay is titled: "Who Are We, Who Are Our Enemies - The Cost of Historical Amnesia." And it is posted on Jihad Watch with this phrase: "A new essay from the superbly insightful Fjordman."

Jihad Watch is a project of noted Islamophobe Robert Spencer. According to his official bio on his website:

ROBERT SPENCER is the director of Jihad Watch, a program of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, and the author of ten books, including the New York Times bestsellers The Truth About Muhammad and The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) (both Regnery). He is coauthor, with Pamela Geller, of The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War On America (Threshold Editions/Simon & Schuster). His next book, Did Muhammad Exist?, is scheduled to be published by ISI Books in Spring 2012...Spencer is a weekly columnist for Human Events and FrontPage Magazine.

Islamophobes in the United States are significantly influenced by the late Samuel Huntington's book The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order. The "underlying problem for the West" according to Huntington, "is not Islamic fundamentalism. It is Islam, a different civilization whose people are convinced of the superiority of their culture and are obsessed with the inferiority of their power."

Samuel P. Huntington, 1997, The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order, New York, NY: Touchstone.

Moderate Communitarian Amitai Etzioni described Huntington as a "systematic and articulate advocate of nationalism, militaristic regimes, and an earlier America in which there was one homogenous creed and little tolerance for pluralism."

But the thesis proposed by Breivik predates the Huntingon thesis (first published in a 1993 Foreign Affairs essay) and comes originally from a 1992 publication of the international network run by Lyndon LaRouche.

"The New Dark Age: The Frankfurt School and `Political Correctness'" by Michael Minnicino, in Fidelio, Vol. 1, No. 1, Winter 1992 (KMW Publishing, Washington, DC),

Fidelio was LaRouche's culture and arts magazine. But since LaRouche considers himself an extension of Marx, Marxism itself is not critiqued, but a plot by the Frankfurt School ideologues to create a "New Dark Age" which crushes Christian nations.

LaRouche wrote a book: The Science of Christian Economy, and other prison writings, by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr., 1991, 506 pp, which set the framework for the attacks on the Frankfurt School theoreticians.

Around 1998 William S. Lind (unwittingly or wittingly) expanded on the thesis of (LaRouche Writer) Minnicino with an essay on "What is Cultural Marxism?"

According to Lind:

Cultural Marxism is a branch of western Marxism, different from the Marxism-Leninism of the old Soviet Union. It is commonly known as "multiculturalism" or, less formally, Political Correctness. From its beginning, the promoters of cultural Marxism have known they could be more effective if they concealed the Marxist nature of their work, hence the use of terms such as "multiculturalism."

In his circa 1998 essay, Lind writes:
The next conservatism should unmask multiculturalism and Political Correctness and tell the American people what they really are: cultural Marxism. Its goal remains what Lukacs and Gramsci set in 1919: destroying Western culture and the Christian religion.

A speech by Lind in early 2000, "The Origins of Political Correctness" is posted on the website of Accuracy in Academia:

If we look at it analytically, if we look at it historically, we quickly find out exactly what it is. Political Correctness is cultural Marxism. It is Marxism translated from economic into cultural terms. It is an effort that goes back not to the 1960s and the hippies and the peace movement, but back to World War I. If we compare the basic tenets of Political Correctness with classical Marxism the parallels are very obvious...

So as far as I can tell, it is William Lind who comes up with the basic thesis that "Political Correctness" is "Cultural Marxism."; Pat Buchanan picks up Lind's thesis, and you can watch a video "Patrick Buchanan explains Cultural Marxism" on you tube.

In his Manifesto's Glossary of Terms, Breivik includes.

Cultural Marxist/Multiculturalist Alliance: the alliance of European political, cultural and media elites (cultural Marxists/multiculturalists) who support the implementation of multiculturalism/cultural Marxism/cultural relativism.

Cultural Marxism/multiculturalism: term describing the current Western European/US political/moral systems based on "political correctness" - a mix of Marxism, extreme egalitarianism, suicidal humanism, anti-nationalism, anti-Europeanism and capitalist globalism. The ML ideology or political platform (Maoist-Leninism) ML which is also a European hate ideology, was later refined "toned down" and disguised and incorporated into politically correct movements such as; feminism, pro-drugs, pro-sexual revolusion, anti-racism, anti-fascism, anti-Christendom, anti-capitalism, gay and disability rights movements, environmentalism etc. (see chapters explaining the Frankfurt School).

The current ideology is in fact a "communism light" or a deceptive form of communism which was created and propagated as soon as the Marxist-Leninists' understood that the Europeans globally (Western Europe, US, Canada, Australia) would not follow the example of their Russian comrades (in early 20th century).

Feminism (including Sexual Revolution), egalitarianism, humanism are highly compatible and/or similar overlapping political concepts/ideologies. The purpose of cultural Marxism is to destroy or deconstruct Western Civilisation (where the Christian European patriarchy has dominated historically) and instead create the USASSR/EUSSR, a communist utopia based on Marxist-Leninist principles. In order to achieve this they must destroy traditional European social cohesion in society which is the basis for traditional European nation states.

They are therefore focused on the gradual deconstruction of European cultures, identities and the traditional structures (nuclear family, traditional morality and patriarchal structures) which has dominated humanity for the last 300 000 years. They understood early that political indoctrination would not be enough. They must destroy the very fabric of Europeanism so they (together with humanists and capitalist globalists) pushed for mass-third world immigraton.

However, they made one critical mistake. They underestimated Islam which proved to be simply too resilient to be assimilated/pacified/feminised, even for them. Communism is often used when describing a complete ideology (economical principles included) while "cultural Marxism" does not describe economical principles.

Thus Breivik's core thesis is: Cultural Marxism=Political Correctness=Multiculturalism=Muslim Immigration=Destruction of Judeo-Christian nations.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
