New IRC CEO Miliband makes the news defending Marxist Dad
Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 14, 2013
Former British Foreign Secretary David Miliband, who only last month took the reins of one of the largest US refugee resettlement contractors in the US, the International Rescue Committee, took to the media on Friday to defend his Marxist father (“best academic Marxist of his generation!”).
I wonder if this is the sort of publicity they expected out of their new highly-paid (over $400,000 in salary and benefits mostly from the US taxpayer!) front man. See a couple of previous posts on Miliband here and here.
Here is the brief story at Politics.co.uk:.
David Miliband has expressed hurt over the Daily Mail article which claimed his father “hated Britain”.
Speaking as the row over the article started to die down, the International Rescue Committee president said his Marxist academic father was a loving presence in his childhood.
“It’s hateful when you have your father targeted in that way, traduced in that way,” he said.
“The important thing for me is that he was an ¬incredibly loving dad who meant a huge amount to me and obviously to Ed and to my mum as well. I hope that the right lessons are learned.”
I didn’t care enough to read the original offending article, but surely it didn’t call into question whether the Marxist Dad was loving or not toward his children? And, I’m wondering, if the Dad were alive, would he be appalled by the fat pay check his son now receives from the masses. Oh yeh, the World Socialist website has already weighed in on that, here.
