Cultural marxism is a really specific term, that has been debated and discussed by a lot of people and there isn't really a clear consensus on what it is. When you say "cultural marxism" or in general use any kind of jargon or terms of art, you should lay the foundation for what it is. It is my experience that most people prefer it if you do that as impartially as you can, even if in the latter part of your post you elect to advance a view on it (e.g. that cultural marxism is a "scourge").

Likewise, it's not really enough to just ask "who is concerned" about a particular thing. You want to get at their reasons, right? So, ask for them. Right now, a complete answer to this question is "I am!" or "I am not." That's not much of a foundation for a dialogue. It's more like counting heads. So, you want to ask questions that are going to give people the chance to talk about things.
Trump did something right!

Something that doesn't actually exist. It's just a conspiracy theory.

Dang, you just disarmed the land mine. I wanted to see who would be dumb enough to argue that it's a serious problem when it's just a conspiracy theory.
