Exactly!.  The many attacks of the bourgeois scribblers posing as Marxists
against the proletarian leaders is part and parcel of the class struggle.

Bob Avakian, for example, who claims himself a Marxist-Leninist-Maoist
always speaks like this:

Leninism is great - however "Lenin was not called a German agent for
absolutely no reason". Maoism is sublime - however, on the question of
proletarian internationalism, Mao "had the same position" as Connolly, and
was not a consistent Leninist.  Marx, wasn't his beard sexy? - However,
"sometimes Marx was not a Marxist".  At least not a "real marxist" like Boby

Avakian, like the bourgeois scholars, also want to separate a man from his
ideas.  Ideas good, man no so good, in fact, a downright capitulator, an
anti-semite, a sex-fiend, etc.

A propos, and just for laughs at laborious straining and theoretical huffing
and puffing.  Have you read the latest kilometric "production" emerging from
the Fujimori "ideological" toilet?.  It carries a long and stinking turd,
precisely advancing a "theoretical justification" for this old and senile
bourgeois trick.
