If you want to tenaciously cling to a stagnant, 19th century Marxism and attack the valuable work done by the likes of Judith Butler, then that's fine. Debate is what keeps the Left healthy and honest.

But if you're going to quote Right-wing think tanks when you attack fellow Leftists, that amounts to an act of treason. Okay, okay, "treason" is a bit melodramatic!! But it really doesn't help the Left as a whole when you glibly quote the NAS.
