6. They use the words "postmodernism" as a ridiculous strawman

Lindsay's attempts to define it are unreadable crap. Meanwhile, he's collaborating with O'Fallon, who claims that advocating "social distancing" to cut the spread of coronavirus is a conspiracy to get "social justice" accepted. O'Fallon is a far right loon, and Lindsay's hatred of "social justice" has led him to partner a right-wing nutjob.

The more I find out about Lindsay, the worse he looks. If you want to find out what postmodernism actually is, I recommend this (as the author says, this actually makes use of primary sources, whereas, ironically, Lindsay's flailing attempts ignore primary sources completely).

And Lindsay tries to tie it to "Cultural Marxism", which is a guarantee he's full of shit on the subject. Invocations of "Cultural Marxism" lead back to a conspiracy theory from a far right group of nutcases in the 1990s.
