Harold Meyerson’s Show Trial of the ‘Millennials’ or the triumph of cliché over actual thought . Almost Marx comments

Mr.Meyerson joins the ranks of Tomasky,Krugman, Conason and the other ‘white liberal’ males, whose non-stop shaming of the dissenters in their ranks, is reduced to the public shaming of the young (millennials): echoing the paranoia of Allen Bloom and the other Neo-Cons of two decades ago! The ‘enemy’, in the midst of our political virtue, is identified as our own children, powerful use of the cliche of  ‘millennials’!

I’m 71 and I’m voting for Stein! So tired of the same old political hacks, like Meyerson, constructing polemics that act as almost sub rosa apologetics for the the unstable, foundering Neo-Liberalism of the political present. Their present huckster-in-chief a  shop-worn Hillary and her collection of sycophants. It isn’t the ‘millennials’ who are the betrayers, but the defenders of a tribalist politics that Meyerson and fellow travelers defend, with unslakable ferocity, as the treason from within the sacred Party. Call them what they are, political Stalinists, who hold their ‘Show Trials’ in the popular press!

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
