The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 82 Before the last year or so, two terms you wouldn’t have expected to encounter together are “drag queen” and “early childhood education,” but we’re now about three years into a full-fledged Communist revolution in the Western world, which has made it not only commonplace but shoved all in our faces. Here we are in the midst of June, “Pride Month,” 2022, and the Leftist collision of drag queens and young children has been center-stage all month long, including in schools. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the idea of using drag queens, or specifically a …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 81 Thinking Sex Series, Part 3 of 3 In the previous two episodes of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay reads through the first two thirds of Gayle Rubin’s shocking 1984 essay, “Thinking Sex,” widely regarded as the first essay in Queer Theory. In it, as Rubin’s subtitle indicates, “Notes for a Radical Theory of the Politics of Sexuality,” she takes feminism (especially sex-negative radical feminism) to task for being insufficiently radical as a politics of sexuality. In fact, she accuses it (not entirely wrongly) of being resoundingly conservative with regard to sex …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 80 Thinking Sex Series, Part 2 of 3 In the previous episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay presented the first third of the first Queer Theory paper to have been written, Gayle Rubin’s shocking 1984 essay “Thinking Sex.” In this episode, he continues with a second part of Rubin’s essay in which it becomes clear that Queer Theory is all about breaking down all boundaries and categories between acceptable and unacceptable sexual behavior using explicitly Marxist-style analysis (Queer Theory is Queer Marxism). Before getting to this section of the …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 79 Thinking Sex Series, Part 1 of 3 People have very rapidly realized, whether in Groomer Schools, marketing, or so many other corners of society that we’ve been suckered into supporting Queer Theory under the banner of a gay and lesbian civil rights movement. We’ve also figured out very quickly that Queer Theory is a branch of Identity Marxism: Queer Marxism, which takes “normalcy” as its special form of bourgeois property to abolish through (Queer) class struggle. Where, though, did Queer Theory come from? It is relatively widely accepted that the first …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 78 Critical Education Theory Series, Part 14 We spend a lot of time talking about the Woke Marxification of North America’s public schools, but what about private schools? As many who send their kids there can tell you, they’re just as Woke, if not Woker. Critical Education Theorists (Critical Pedagogs) have not ignored private schools, just like they haven’t ignored elite private universities that these schools primarily service, but how do they really think about them? In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, James Lindsay reads through a recent academic paper regarding bringing Freirean and …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 77 Critical Education Theory Series, Part 13 A common term of art in the current educational milieu is racial literacy. In fact, here is the giant and influential educational company Pollyanna, Inc., talking about how central racial literacy is to their K-8 education programs. What is racial literacy, though? As you will not be surprised to learn, it is the racial repackaging of Marxist education Theorist Paulo Freire’s critical literacy model using Race Marxism (Critical Race Theory) in place of Critical Marxism (Critical Theory, or neo-Marxism). In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, James …

Anywhere in North America, chances are our kids go to Paulo Freire’s schools. Who is Paulo Freire? Paulo Freire is a Brazilian Marxist and Liberation Theologian who remade literacy education according to his ideological programs and thereby ruined it. His ideas were imported to North America in the 1980s and have been steadily colonizing education ever since. Now, his work has been so influential on the “Critical Pedagogy” (or, “Critical Education Theory”) movement that virtually all teachers are trained in his ideas and implement them in classrooms across the nation. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay breaks down …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 74 Critical Education Theory Series, Part 10 Here on the New Discourses Podcast, we are deep into our sprawling series on Critical Education Theory (Critical Pedagogy) and the Identity Marxist corruption of our schools, and at the same time, we’re still being gaslighted about whether or not Critical Race Theory is even present in American schools. In this episode of the podcast, James Lindsay reads through part of an academic paper from 2006 about incorporating Critical Race Theory and Whiteness Studies into literacy education in second-grade classrooms. That’s seven-year-olds. The point is clear: almost all of …
