Not only does the history of the term go back to the early 20th century,
i.e. before H.W. Bush, it is also a general concept employed in the
genre of conspiracy myths pioneered by 'Protocols of the Elders of Zion':


I couldn't be bothered with the myths as such. My concern here is rather
that their rise mirrors the decline of the Left as a political and
intellectual force.
