[Marxism] "blacklisting"

It's in quotes because it's been used by Khalek since way before her UNC
disinvite against ANY criticism of her - or of her colleagues Norton and
Blumenthal, by anyone.

Anyway, it's interesting that the Charles Murray/Middlebury incident comes
at the same time, as there are obviously overlapping issues and tactical
considerations.

But there's one crucial difference:

The pro-Khalek statement, and amplifications of it by her supporters, DENY
THAT SHE'S DONE OR SAID ANYTHING WRONG.

For them, Syria is "complicated," "too difficult to take sides," "unclear,"
etc. etc. etc.

In their eyes, there is no murderous regime, no Russian/Hezbollah
imperialist invasion, no self-organization by the Syrian masses.

But of course one wouldn't want to admit that in polite country, thus the
furious, duplicitous defense of a 3rd-rate blogger and mouthpiece for the
regime.
