[Marxism] Green Left — 25 years old and still useful to McCarthyites everywhere

*Green Left Weekly* is marking its 25th anniversary this week, which is a
truly remarkable achievement for an independent paper without corporate
funding — and one that could not be achieved without a lot of hard work
over many years by more people than could be named.

But if we really had to name *one* key suppporter, it would be hard to go
past *The Australian*'s Gerard Henderson
<http://www.theaustralian.com.au/opinion/columnists/gerard-henderson/the-abcs-and-fairfaxs-holocaust-confusion-and-the-age-channels-green-left-weekly/news-story/8a1309c5ade72b34d0354eefcf3144cb>
as one of the most dedicated promoters of *Green Left*'s good work.

It is hard to overstate the value of Henderson and others at Rupert
Murdoch's *The Australian* in repeatedly referencing *Green Left* as the
key example of everything they despise. Its stock insult to anyone leaning
slightly to the left of Murdoch — that they “sound like *Green Left Weekly*”
— has been a never ceasing source of inspiration.
