Dan,

I am likely the "sectarian asshole" you are referring to. I must say, I find it humorous how some treat the "Jacobins" as though their politics are exempt from criticism, presumably because of all the great publicity they have given the left. Here I was thinking the Jacobin was a serious Marxist political journal and should be critiqued as such. If I had known it was only a glossy Adbusters-style publicity project, perhaps I wouldn't have wasted so much time taking their technocratic social democratic "Marxism" seriously.

If opposing the Democratic Party and its apologists is enough to make one a "sectarian asshole" then I plead guilty as charged.
