Note the seventh paragraph of this review in the New York Post. The reviewer
is dealing with a movie about Mao Tse-tung’s Cultural Revolution. He says:
“The chaos, death and Joe McCarthy-like persecution didn’t end until Mao’s
death in 1976.” So the horrors of the Cultural Revolution — university
professors thrown out of windows, concert pianists having their fingers
smashed, “counter-revolutionaries” being killed and then ceremonially
eaten — were “like” a few Hollywood lefties losing their jobs.
