I did not know this. I did not know that the phrase "cultural Marxism" is a construct of the conspiracist far right and anti-semitic far right.
I'd just thought it meant the influence of Marxism on academia in particular. Which is pretty much a given. But I think I have to accept the analysis of Samuel Moyn in his article below that It is longstanding and rather not nice bigotry. It's in the area of judeobolshevism: Marx, Lenin, Trotsky and all that.
Oh well, live and learn.
