Glamorizing the man behind communism, Teen Vogue is sparking outrage for an article titled, Who is Karl Marx: Meet the Anti-Capitalist Scholar, in which the publication for kids praises communist scholar Karl Marx’s critique of capitalism.
The article celebrates Marx’s 200th birthday and encourages its young readers to commemorate what Marx “can still teach us about the past and present.”
The article reveres artist Frida Kahlo, human rights activist Malcolm X and deaf and blind author Hellen Keller’s advocacy for communism, and omits details about how Chinese dictator Mao Zedong, Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin and Cambodian dictator Pol Pot murdered 65 million people employing the political ideology.
“While you may not necessarily identify as a Marxist, socialist, or communist,” the article states. “You can still use Karl Marx’s ideas to use history and class struggles to better understand how the current sociopolitical climate in America came to be.”
Communist propaganda is being taught in schools across the country, Teen Vogue notes in the article which features a high school teacher details his lessons plan glorifying communism.
“I do a little role-playing with [my class],” Brunt tells Teen Vogue. “[I tell them,] I’m the boss, you’re my workers, and you want to try to take me down. I have the money. I own the factory. I control the police. I control the military. I control the government. What do you guys have?”
The high school teacher said he uses the tension between the proletariat and bourgeoisie to empower students to rebel.
The students, he explained ultimately come to the conclusion they can spearhead a communist revolution because “We outnumber you!’” Brunt said.
Teen Vogue, which reaches hundreds of thousands of young Americans weekly through its website has moved beyond beauty, celebrities, and entertainment to focus over the past few years to focus significantly more on politics and “social issues”—all with a not-so-subtle steady stream of communist propaganda aimed at radicalizing its adolescent readers.
Last week, the leftist rag featured an article promoting prostitution, warning its young readership that sex work should be legalized and normalized because it’s as important and dignified as every other profession.
The article, headlined “Why Sex is Real Work,” is authored by Dr. Tlaleng Mofokeng who argues prostitution should not be criminalized because being a sexual health physician is no different than being a hooker and to an extent, we all are sex workers.
Teenaged girls who read the online magazine are “3x more likely to be an activist,” according to Teen Vogue’s 2019 “brand overview” information sheet released by its parent company Conde Nast.
“Teen Vogue is the premier destination for the young and unapologetic. … We aim to disrupt the conversation by educating, enlightening and empowering the next generation, in every step we take,” the document, headlined “A New Generation Disrupting the Conversation,” continues:
In April, a leaders of America’s largest Marxist groups praised Teen Vogue in a meeting with an EU parliamentary alliance of communist and far-left socialist parties.
During a panel discussion in the EU Parliament, Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) leader Maria Svart Svart explained to the assembled comrades the importance of socialist media in the United States to counter the message of the “right”:
, were in Brussels in April as guests of the European Left,. The meeting was designed to promote cooperation among hard-left groups across the globe.
“There’s a magazine called Teen Vogue, which has been shockingly having all this left-wing – like every week there’s some new left-wing article that they have. And Part of that is because Bernie Sanders and organizations like DSA are normalizing socialism.”
