Weasel words from Phibbs

This blog seems to have attracted a few views over the last several days. With Nelson Mandela close to death, perhaps it was inevitable. It was also inevitable that many people would remember the Tories’ attitude to Nelson Mandela and their support for South Africa’s apartheid regime during the 1980s. 726 more words

In recent years, the word “libertarian” has been hijacked by the Right, who have transformed the definition of the word from “one who supports the principle of liberty” to “one who supports an idea of liberty that gives license to the elite to continue to exploit others for personal gain”. 626 more words

buddyhell reblogged this on Guy Debord's Cat and commented:

I was considering writing a blog debunking so-called "cultural Marxism" but this article does it so much better. In essence, this newly coined concept is the product of the paranoid thinking of William S. Lind. Cultural Marxism does not exist and, while it may provide a grain of comfort to right-wing conspiracy theorists, it is completely meaningless. The US right desperately wanted to find a way to smear its opponents in the same way that the epithet "communist" was used in the 1950s and 60s to silence critics and smear opponents. The plain truth is the most, if not all, right-wingers have no real understanding of the work of the Frankfurt School, whom they paint as the 'destroyers' of Judaeo-Christian 'civilization'. Absurd.
