Disinfo: Cultural Marxists colonise the mind of people in the West through an unprecedented brainwashing


Cultural Marxists (or progressivists) control Western media, Big Tech, academia, the legal system and 95% of the Catholic Church hierarchy, as well as the Deep State in the US, the European Union and the UK. Thanks to their unlimited control over mainstream media, social media and education, cultural Marxists are able to colonise the mind and world-view of people in the West through a historically unprecedented amount of mass brainwashing.


Conspiracy theory presented with no evidence. This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative claiming that the liberal societies of the West are ideological dictatorships that have imposed a dominant "liberal globalist" or "progressivist" ideology and that the elites in Western societies exercise total control over people’s minds and beliefs, censoring and suppressing any view that dissents from liberal-globalist-progressivist “single thought”.

The message contained in the article is also consistent with the recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about global elites secretly ruling the world, and specifically about the so-called “Deep State” in the United States and other Western countries, which rules above elected officials. This narrative aims to question the legitimacy of liberal democracy and Western institutions.

It is obviously false, as the article claims, that “cultural Marxists” exercise total control over media and education in the West and that they have imposed a totalitarian ideology and world view on society by brainwashing the masses. Western liberal societies, in sharp contrast to totalitarian regimes, do not impose a dominant ideology or “single thought” on their citizens; they do not suppress nor censor alternative points of view. Liberal societies are based on freedom of thought and on pluralism, a political philosophy which recognises and affirms diversity within a political body, and which permits the peaceful coexistence of different interests, religious and secular worldviews, convictions, and lifestyles.

Furthermore, the idea of a "Deep State" has always been very popular among conspiracy theorists. Its manifestations might be different, but generally, the concept conjures up the image of a small and secretive group of men, deciding the fate of the world behind the scenes. However, there is no evidence of such a "Deep State" existing in the United States or in other Western countries. No reputable political scientists and researchers confirm the existence of a “Deep State” in Western nations.

Read previous cases in our database claiming that in the West control over people’s minds and beliefs is far greater than anything Mao Zedong could have dreamed of and that liberal-globalism is a totalitarian ideology that controls politics, culture, education, art, and all aspects of life.

The Ukrainian revolution was well-planned from abroad

The Kyiv protests were well organised and completely controlled. And the murders of law enforcement officers and the “Heavenly Hundred”, with which the radicals are now rushing, and even the moment of the coup were all under the control of the curators who conceived, organised and carried out this operation.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative against Ukraine, containing multiple disinformation narratives regarding the Euromaidan protests and Ukrainian statehood.

There was no coup in Ukraine seven years ago. The demonstrations which began in Kyiv in November 2013 – called "Maidan", or "Euromaidan" – were a result of the Ukrainian people's frustration with former President Yanukovych's last-minute U-turn when, after seven years of negotiation, he refused to sign the EU–Ukraine Association Agreement and halted progress towards Ukraine's closer relationship with the EU.

Russia will have to help Brussels with the vaccination because of the chaos in the EU

Russia will have to provide the Sputnik V vaccine to European countries because Western coronavirus vaccine supplies to Europe are collapsing.


This is the recurring pro-Kremlin narrative aiming to discredit Western vaccines and promote "Sputnik V", and is entirely without evidence.

The European Commission has authorised the first COVID-19 vaccines in the European Union (EU), following European Medicines Agency (EMA) approval. EMA is liaising closely with developers of other potential COVID-19 vaccines, mobilising its own resources and cooperating with regulatory partners.

COVID-19 pandemic is a global conspiracy in the interests of the global elite

The “pandemic” that we’re talking about since the spring of 2020 is not something spontaneous. This is a pre-planned operation with the goal of worldwide restructuring in the interests of the “global elite” (“world behind the scenes”, “deep state”).


A recurring conspiracy theory that echoes pro-Kremlin disinformation about the artificial creation of COVID-19.

There is no evidence that the coronavirus (COVID-19) was created in laboratories and that the pandemic is a part of a global hoax. COVID-19 comes from a family of viruses that includes the common cold and viruses such as SARS and MERS. Coronaviruses are known to circulate in mammals and birds, and scientists have already suggested that COVID-19 originally came from bats. One of the previous coronaviruses that caused severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, spread from bats to civet cats to humans.
