The Origins of Political Correctness
(Bill Lind, 5 february 2000)
Where does all this stuff that you’ve heard about this morning – the victim feminism, the gay rights movement, the invented statistics, the rewritten history, the lies, the demands, all the rest of it – where does it come from? For the first time in our history, Americans have to be fearful of what they say, of what they write, and of what they think. They have to be afraid of using the wrong word, a word denounced as offensive or insensitive, or racist, sexist, or homophobic.
We have seen other countries, particularly in this century, where this has been the case. And we have always regarded them with a mixture of pity, and to be truthful, some amusement, because it has struck us as so strange that people would allow a situation to develop where they would be afraid of what words they used.

Oei-oei! In eerste instantie heb ik eroverheen gelezen, maar toen ik bij herlezing over deze zin struikelde in het verhaal van Bill Lind — “The members of the Frankfurt School are Marxist, they are also, to a man, Jewish” — ben ik ‘m eens gaan googelen. In het algemeen ben ik ervoor om teksten op hun inhoud te beoordelen en deze tekst vond ik lekker helder en krachtig, maar nu zie ik dat ik een stuk aan het promoten ben waarvan sommigen zeggen dat het uit een antisemitische hoek komt en dat is ongeveer het laatste wat ik wil. Enfin hier is Wikipedia:
“In an article for the Southern Poverty Law Center, Bill Berkowitz describes Lind as a key proponent and popularizer of the Frankfurt School conspiracy theory–-a theory which alleges that a cabal of Jewish–German philosophers have seized control over American culture and have been using that control to systematically subvert American values. Because the supposed architects of the putative Frankfurt School plot are Jewish, and because many proponents of the theory emphasize the supposed conspirators’ Judaism or even blame Judaism for the conspiracy, Berkowitz and the SPLC characterize the Frankfurt School conspiracy theory as anti-Semitic. According to the SPLC, in 1999 Lind wrote, ‘The real damage to race relations in the South came, not from slavery, but Reconstruction, which would not have occurred if the South had won.’”
