Frankly, those on the left who have given Boer some traction need to
have their head examined especially HM that published one of his addled
books on Christianity and Marxism. I know a bit about this theology

Boer is a deeply reactionary figure in my view, reminding me in many
ways of the Bloomsbury intellectuals who lionized Stalin in the 1930s. A
recent blog post on Boer's Stalin's Mustache blog defends the crackdown
on Maoist students who have taken up the cause of workers.
Besides HM, you have the Isaac Deutscher prize jury presenting him with

adaptations to Stalinism, must have been spinning in his grave over this.
