To the extent that there is any truth to this, it's probably similar to the way that American conservatives like Rush Limbaugh (or rather his ghost writers) are influenced by Gramsci. They might have picked up a few catch phrases but are probably lacking any sort of a deeper understanding of Marxism.

(I doubt that Juan Cole got this right, especially after his last gaffe 
on how jihadists were emulating "the Bolsheviks" by killing Charlie 
Hebdo cartoonists. I forward it as a demonstration of how ignorant Cole 
can be on occasion. I might look further into his allegation later on.)
