Dizzied by the Radical Feminist Vertigo: Promoting Marx, Not Women

November 5, 2009


A couple months ago I was in a graduate cinema studies course when a fellow student called me out as a sexist. My only crime was being a fan of Alfred Hitchcock’s films, which she (and other misguided feminists) feel are full of misogynistic male heroes. After telling me she was offended by Jimmy Stewart’s allegedly “heroic” character in Vertigo, she ranted about how women are oppressed by showering me with rape statistics.

When I responded to my classmate, telling her that not all male leads are “heroes” and some films are instead meant to be a cautionary tale (i.e. Vertigo,) she told me that it was not my place to discredit her. Excuse me?! When someone calls me a sexist because I like one of the most critically acclaimed films of all time I am certainly within my rights to defend myself.

Feminists hate acknowledging criticism because they fear exposure. They only use women’s rights or equality as a disguise. It is packaged and sold as an advocacy group for the advancement of women. However, the truth is it fights to abolish the “oppressive” notion of gender in America just as communists want to demolish the social class structure. Feminism is nothing but a Marxist school of thought that only brings down the women it claims to help.


On Monday night, Red Eye Host Greg Gutfeld commented:

“Gender feminists believe that being female is a social construct, internal sex organs be damned.  And all life amounts to is the struggle between the powerless female against the evil patriarchal man.”

It may surprise you the number of gender studies programs indoctrinating students with Marxist ideals across the country (Read David Horowitz’s One Party Classroom.)  Each one is no stranger to controversy.  At DePaul University, the department of “women’s and gender studies” faculty and students are angry because their own Professor Melissa Bradshaw was denied tenure.

Red Eye host Greg Gutfeld responds:

“Here we have an awesome collision of two idiotic practices.  Tenure, which allows professors to pursue ideas that would fail in a world of measurable achievement and gender studies, where earnest types angrily analyze the sexes (usually while wearing panties made from hemp).”

The Chicago Tribune reports:

“Bradshaw is one of four faculty members who were rejected — because they are women, they say. Their attorney notes that of seven faculty members turned down for tenure this year out of 33 up for consideration, five were women (her clients plus one other who has chosen not to fight the decision).”

It appears Bradshaw’s only way to justify her dismissal without risking exposure is to play the gender card. Why can’t she acknowledge the credibility of her teachings?  It’s simple: she can’t justify her programs of Marxist indoctrination.

The corrupt advocates of this so-called feminism force upon their students that gender (and its oppressive nature) is socially constructed. Therefore, any problems that arise from gender are only fixed by the collapse of the society that built it.  There is no denying the destructive force driving feminism here. Everyone should be aware of its true motivations:

Feminism, Socialism, and Communism are one in the same, and Socialist/Communist government is the goal of feminism.” – Feminist scholar Catharine A. MacKinnon

No matter what spin the “feminists” throw at us, there is no denying the Marxist lens it is taught through in American universities. If only someone enlightened my classmate about the pitfalls of feminism we could have had a great discussion about film (like we were supposed to) instead of being subjected to a feminist rant.

    I suppose Jimmy Stewart was the aggressor from the wheelchair in Rear Window, too? Good stuff, Chris.

      Funny you say that, David. Many feminist film critics do strongly argue that Stewart was the aggressor from his wheelchair in Rear Window…they only bring themselves down with this kind of idiocy.

    This is completely correct. I too am a social studies student (American Studies and Oriental Studies) and agree with you entirely Chris. Feminist professors teach their ideology of complete equality (not merely for the law, but men and women are equal in respects) and push it through the collective throats of students. This agenda of feminism, however, is related to socialism; it just tries to accomplish the same thing by different means.

    If the only qualifications to secure a job is that no one understand you, perhaps you have studied the wrong curriculum to secure the job or you may be so obnoxious you’re unemployable.

    Figure it out and make the necessary changes, because most of us are tired of hearing excuses from those that have bad attitudes in a free society.

    Vertigo remains a classic because it’s a psychological movie expressing fears/wishes from the unconscious of Hitchcock, who succeeded in tapping the collective unconscious. If this fool wants to have no culture, that’s her privilege but it’s boorish of her to deny others their opinions and tastes. She sounds extremely dumb.

    P.S. I’m female.

    P.P.S. I thought being Marxist would GET you tenure.

    Why do you hate people who challenge patriarchy and greed?

    • November 5, 2009 2:56 pm

      I don’t hate anyone, I just emphatically disagree with Marxists. True feminism is destructive because it calls for the collapse of our society so they can rebuild it in their own image. Of course, they don’t sell it as such. It is only Marxism from another angle. If they want real change they should try a less radical approach.

      Why do you hate people who oppose feminism and tyranny?

      Is it really patriarchy, and is it really greed? I think those are convenient lightening rod labels for people who want to encite anger. It takes a real effort to look underneath any situation, ask the people involved for their opinions, and why they make decisions in the moment to find out that the nefarious motivations ascribed to most ‘patriarchal’ and ‘greedy’ actions are motivated by neither.

      This is why I found the feminist agenda in college to be a farce, and turned my back on it, like so many other women of my generation,.

      The film Vertigo has no relevance to patriarchy and greed so I don’t know how those topics even came up.

    Maybe I’m a Feminist, maybe not. Never tried to classify myself.
    How about just wanting fair, equal, happy opportunities for everyone?
    Regardless of sex.
    Some years ago, right after I was divorced, I was invited into a group
    of very intellectual, professional, thoughtful, and (I thought) fun women.
    They were all for Women’s Rights. That was ok with me.
    But, soon, I realized their real goal was not advancement of women;
    it was striking back at and hurting MEN.
    I quit the group. I love men.

    Women like the one you encountered have fallen prey to the victim mentality just like other groups. I’m not sure it’s possible to reason with them at all because they NEED to be a victim.

    Does Melissa Bradshaw also hate Hitchcock films? Cause if she doesn’t, I have no idea what the he’ll you are trying to argue.

      Here is my thesis, apparently you skipped that paragraph…

      “Feminism is nothing but a Marxist school of thought that only brings down the women it claims to help.”

      Try reading instead of skimming next time you want to attack me.
