He's a pig. One that runs with other pigs.
He declares feminism a "CIA plot" but, notice, he's smart enough not to do the same with the Civil Rights Movement. There's enough sexism (sadly) left in this society to allow MCM to get away with his crap but only up to a point.
Hatred of women being what it is, the comments on the article may be crazier than MCM's own thoughts:

Sorry Laurie...he's right. Identity and middle-class liberals ruined the Left. The CIA bit might be a f**ed-up conspiracy theory but at least the 'theory' has a plausible motive...most don't even have that.
Mind, you, scrap that last bit...it's about time I had a conspiracy theory...I'm buying it. F**k it...it might not be true but it suits me anyway.
Bourgeois liberals...not just useful idiots, but CIA stooges to boot. How'd ya feel now?
Mark Crispin Miller is now my official favourite Media Studies professor.
'Spud' seems to miss the point. Everyone deserves equality and if you want to end so-called "identity politics" then support equality.
It's also cute how these White men whine "identity politics" anytime the issue is that no one other than old White men get to speak. Who's playing 'identity politics'?
Seems to me it's Mark Crispin Miller and his crowd. They're the ones in a circle jerk with a bunch of men just like themselves.
So we they do it, it's okay but when men of color or any woman objects, it's "identity politics"?
They're so good at projecting, they're so awful at taking accountability.
