I define Marxists as atheist internationalist equal-outcome socialists. Or in Marx own words: “religion is the opiate of the masses”, “workers of the world unite” and “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs”.
This may explain why the Left supported Palestinian terrorists killing Israelis at the 1972 Munich Olympics. Meaning Muslims killing Jews, a holy war seen as political by the anti-nationalist Left. And it may explain why even today, the Left favors Islam over Judaism and Christianity, and sees Muslims as victims instead of perpetrators.
Consider that most atheists possibly including myself hate Israel because it is a theocratic state. And Marxists hate nationalism, the Olympics is a nationalist spectacle.
But most important, Marxists hate competition and a meritocracy, they favor “equality”. Marxists view the free market as unequal and therefore unfair. Hence the “everyone gets a trophy” pass/fail approach from teachers, themselves members of equal-outcome unions.
But to the Marxists dismay, the Olympics prove at least in athletic competition – nations are not equal, and women are not equal to men.
Hence the appeal of Olympic champion Caitlyn Jenner, a strike against the Olympics, meritocracy and the nuclear family. And thus a strike for internationalist collectivism, and the false notion of equality of people, nations and religions.
