Hannity is a Marxist

Marxism has been falsely equated with Communism.  In an Orwellian Newspeak manner Marxism was preempted from serious academic discussion at my dinner table by virtue of my father's and grandfather's profession as U.S. military pilots.  Although we were learning dialectical materialism in church on Sunday it was forbidden to speak of it on Monday.

Pastors, priests, rabbis and imams are Marxists and despite 40 years of Catholic suppression of liberation theology it extends to Catholicism, Judaism, and Islam as a whole.

Marx simply extended Hegelian dialectics into political theory.  But Marx did not question the underlying premise of Hegelian dialectics which, I claim, are nothing more than a modernization of Judaeo-Christo-Islamic ethics.

The brutality of ISIS has brought us once again face to face with the postmodernist critique of dialectical culture.  If, as Hannity, the Ayatollahs, and the cold warriors (both Marxist and Capitalist) assert, there are clearly defined rights and wrongs then ISIS, Nazism, Stalinism, Maoism and Imperialism are not only inevitable they are to be expected.

Tito began to chip away at the authoritarian regime in Zizek's Yugoslavia by rejecting the Hegelian/Marxist/Freudian dialectic and pursuing the third way.  A closet capitalist and the father of the Yugo, Tito cracked the Soviet stranglehold on Eastern Europe long before Prague Spring and Solidarity.
