CONSERVATIVES AND MARXISTS

(h/t Atrios)

I recall that decades ago, a couple of conservatives called for the use of "Leninist tactics" to fight liberalism and it seems they still can't get over using Marxist tactics.   In particular, they are enamored of Gramsci's theory of cultural hegemony and wish to shape popular culture to conservative ends:
I think, as I wrote in the book, I would really encourage conservative donors to take the money they’re giving politicians and find a way to sponsor talented people who have a conservative worldview who want to engage in the arts. And maybe that’s sending them to college, maybe that’s sending them to art school, whatever.

Stalin, Heidegger, Gramsci all better than Trotskyite tactics.
