Oh my god. He can’t possibly mean that, can he? Another:
My essay describes p.c. ideology as a form of Marxist thought, substituting race and gender identities for economic ones, and assigning political rights on the basis of class identity rather than individuality.
Oh well. I’ve got a ball game to attend. I’ll leave it to you jackals to pick over that stunted, diseased gazelle of a column.
