“Northwestern U. Marxism conference packed with teachers”
To be fair, I’m sure many of them were there just to learn about this strange alien ideology the teabaggers are always railing against, not because they are sympathetic to the ideas of positive rights, political correctness, a heavily progressive income tax, public sector unionization, government redistribution of wealth, an egalitarian-based civil society, or the Balkanization of the population into manageable (and often competing) identity groups — leaving the technocratic and bureaucratic elite in control of molded and running an ordered, centralized society built on the idea of conformity among the masses. For the fairness.
So. Nothing to see here. And it’s just like you wingnuts to try and glean from such participation some kind of tacit consent for the underlying ideology being intellectually considered.
Just because they ball and raise their fists doesn’t mean they’re down with the struggle. In fact, how dare you question their patriotism! McCarthyites!
