You've missed the point, I think.
If those whom Haim calls "the Education Mafia" (TEM) want to use the term "multiculturalism" unlimited by either definition or axiom without admitting that they are doing so, then surely Haim has the privilege of using the term "multiculturalism" without limiting it either by definition or by axiom---or admitting that he is doing so.
He may also use "TEM" without limit and without admitting that he is doing so.
Of course, others---including you and me---share this privilege. That's only fair.
As this list attests, such privileges make for dandy arguments that have no resolutions.
