There are several threads this could go in, but this one seems as good as any:

"In “black-hole anti-communism”, as Joel Kovel dubbed it, everything that is perceived as threatening can be compressed into a single, treasonous, diabolical enemy: just different tentacles of the same communist kraken. Rather like a racial stereotype, “communism” figuratively represents systemic crises as something external, a demonic plot. It works through what Freud called dreamwork, wherein a single dream image comes to stand for thoughts that cannot otherwise be acknowledged. Those labelled “communists” are thus blamed, not just for the reforms that they demand, but for the crises that call for reform."

From an opinion piece in The Guardian today..

https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...lsonaro-brazil

It contains more, on the anti-semitic foundations of the invention of the idea of "cultural Marxism" and the whipping up of fear against a communist enemy that no longer exists. Much of it seems spot on.

But no Youtube video? How are we ever going to get the truth out!

If you don't like the article, how about putting together a cogent argument as to why it's incorrect?

Because the Guardian describes the author (Richard Seymour) as a political activist and Wikipedia describes him as a Northern Irish Marxist. Nuff said.

"Interesting" how dismissive you are of sources that disagree with your views, but get your knickers in a twist when you feel others are dismissive of your sources.

Other views aren't allowed you see. Only those approved by the Central People's Committee. We all have to conform.

He can't. Because it's correct.

Also, he hasn't read it.

Then you need to get your hearing checked....

Other self-described political activists in the UK include Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (of Britain First), and Darren Grimes (formerly of Be Leave). Neither of whom would be described as Marxists...

I really don't care if you watch or read my sources or not. I have many many sources covering a diversity of opinions, whereas yours are just one flavour: Woke.
