Why are politically correct, multiculturalist, gender progressive people being labeled as Marxist?

Originally I started hearing the term cultural marxism being used to describe these group of people, but now people are just shortening it and saying Marxism? What's going on here? Is this an attempt to dilute Marxism? Here are some examples of what I'm talking about: "Joe Rogan Experience #877 - Jordan Peterson" video which has over 800,000 views and with podcast downloads it likely over a million. Here is another one: "Why Cultural Marxism Is Destroying America | Duke Pesta and Stefan Molyneux." Would love your inside on this.

Thank you for your question, Kay. The misuse of the term "Marxism" stems from a gross misunderstanding of it's economic philosophy after decades of McCarthyism have used it interchangeably with other scare-terms generally associated with the left as part of right-wing propaganda tactics. We feel it is part of our mission to help educate others on what Marxism really means.
