New IRC CEO Miliband makes the news defending Marxist Dad

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 14, 2013

David Miliband: Maudlin response to criticism of Marxist Dad!

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

 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.

    Many others have also weighed in on Ralph Miliband. See Ron Radosh’s report with many links here. His piece is about David Miliband’s brother Ed, who is the leader of the Labour Party in Britain. Whatever the father Ralph would think of David, he would surely be pleased as punch about Ed, who promises to undo all the Thatcher improvements and take Britain back to the days of government ownership of everything when unions were running the country into the ground.
