Cultural Marxism is sometimes labeled as a conspiracy theory by people on the far left, but this definition explains how most people use the term in political conversation:

Marxism can be summed up as the interpretation that the world is best understood as a power struggle between different wealth groups (poor, middleclass, rich, bourgeoisie, proletariot, etc). Cultural Marxism is a term used to describe the idea that our society is best interpreted as being a power struggle between different identity groups or cultures(women, men, gay, straight, black, white).

Cultural Marxism is used by most people refers to a kind of behavior that looks for power imbalances in everyday culture (like asking a person where they are from, or complementing a black persons hair) and problematizing those interactions, causing people to resent others for innocuous little social misdemeanors.

Cultural Marxism assumes the worst of the actions of a supposedly powerful group by saying that their little faux-pas are really egregious examples of latent prejudice, and excuses the hatred and rudeness of the supposedly weaker group by saying that their behavior is an expression of resisting power or "asserting their personhood".

Cultural Marxists hunt relentlessly to find things to be offended about, and claim to speak on behalf of all oppressed groups, though most of the time cultural marxists are rich, priviledged, upper and middle class white college women with multicolored hair.
"Like every moral busybody across history, Cultural Marxists always come at you with this famous glint in their eye that suggests that they know better than you how you should live your life and they will make you if they get the chance."

"Cultural Marxism is the practice of interpreting what people say in the most uncharitable way."
