For some time, I’ve maintained that the bad ideas of the left don’t stay where they originate but spread like a bad infection.
And so, the concept of cultural appropriation, a ridiculous notion that comes from cultural Marxism, is spreading.
Oxford defines it as:
“A term used to describe the taking over of creative or artistic forms, themes, or practices by one cultural group from another.”
That can include food, art, clothing, all kinds of things.
At first, I laughed and mocked it but then we saw what happened to people like Niki Ashton, the New Democrat MP running for party leader; Hal Niedzviecki, editor of Writer’s Union Magazine; and just this past weekend Jonathan Kay, former National Post writer and editor turned editor of The Walrus.
Watch as I fill you in on what happened to these people.
With both the Writer’s Union and The Walrus — left wing publications to be sure — embracing this cultural Marxism, it’s gaining a foothold in the mainstream.
If you thought we were all supposed to embrace multiculturalism and each other’s cultures, think again.
The rules are changing, often at the whim of obscure academic theories that have little impact on the real world.
Until they come and cost you your job.
