  • Chomsky: Antifa is a ‘major gift to the right’

    The Washington Examiner spoke with Noam Chomsky, the far left MIT professor, about the anarchist protest group Antifa. Chomsky’s view of the group was not what you would call a ringing endorsement: “As for Antifa, it’s a minuscule fringe of the Left, just as its predecessors were,” Noam Chomsky told the Washington Examiner. “It’s a major gift to the Right, including the militant Right, who are exuberant.”… Chomsky said, “what they do is often wrong in principle – like blocking talks – and [the movement] is generally self-destructive.” “When confrontation shifts to the arena of violence, it’s the toughest and...
  • Noam Chomsky: Antifa is a 'major gift to the Right'

    The left-wing "Antifa" movement is rising in prominence after clashing with white supremacists in Charlottesville, Va., but one progressive scholar says the anti-fascists feed the fire they seek to extinguish. "As for Antifa, it's a minuscule fringe of the Left, just as its predecessors were," Noam Chomsky told the Washington Examiner. "It's a major gift to the Right, including the militant Right, who are exuberant." Many activists affiliated with the loosely organized Antifa movement consider themselves anarchists or socialists. They often wear black and take measures to conceal their identity.
  • Noam Chomsky's Surprising Take on the Russia Scandal

    Noam Chomsky has generally been one of the strongest intellectual voices of the left for decades. But he has an unexpected take on the growing scandal around President Trump and the alleged “collusion” with Russia. The 88-year-old MIT professor Chomsky, a celebrated linguist and philosopher, thinks that the Russia story is a major distraction and it’s wrong for Democrats to focus their energies on it. In an April 6th conversation, organized by the American Association of Geographers, Chomsky characterized President Trump as not having a strong center of beliefs, while “his only ideology is ‘me’. What is instead happening is...

    Left-wing academic Noam Chomsky has declared that the Republican Party is the “most dangerous organization in human history” for their stance on climate change. Chomsky, still considered to be a darling of the left, told the BBC that, unlike ISIS or North Korea, the Republican Party is “dedicated to destroying the prospects for organized human existence.” Asked whether Donald Trump would damage America, Chomsky argued that the “main damage he will do is to the world, and it’s already happening.” “The most significant aspect of the Trump election, and it’s not just Trump, it’s the whole Republican party, is their...

    ...AMY GOODMAN: I wanted to ask you about this comment that you made that the Republican Party, you said, is the most dangerous organization in world history. Can you explain? NOAM CHOMSKY: I also said that it’s an extremely outrageous statement. But the question is whether it’s true. I mean, has there ever been an organization in human history that is dedicated, with such commitment, to the destruction of organized human life on Earth? Not that I’m aware of. Is the Republican organization—I hesitate to call it a party—committed to that? Overwhelmingly. There isn’t even any question about it...

    Not the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. Not the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. Not the Khmer Rouge. Not the Islamic State. No, none of them are “the most dangerous organization in world history.” That honor, as far as Noam Chomsky is concerned, belongs to the Republican Party of the United States. This is the kind of hysterical rhetoric that is inciting the anti-Trump riots. Democrats are behaving as if Satan himself (or Hitler, with whom, as they always do with those they hate, they’re actively likening Trump) were about to become President of the United States, and their...

    On Nov. 8, Donald Trump managed to pull the biggest upset in U.S. politics by tapping successfully into the anger of white voters and appealing to the lowest inclinations of people in a manner that would have probably impressed Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels himself. But what exactly does Trump's victory mean and what can one expect from this megalomaniac when he takes over the reins of power on Jan. 20, 2017? What is Trump's political ideology, if any and is "Trumpism" a movement? Will U.S. foreign policy be any different under a Trump administration? Some years ago, public intellectual Noam...

    Salon ^ | May 20th, 2016 | Jake Johnson, AlterNet
    In an interview with Chris Hedges in 2010, Noam Chomsky, the world-renowned linguist and dissident intellectual, remarked that he has “never seen anything like this.” By this, he meant the state of American society, relative to the time in which he was raised — the Depression years — and to the tumultuous state of Europe during that same period. “It is very similar to late Weimar Germany,” Chomsky said. “The parallels are striking. There was also tremendous disillusionment with the parliamentary system. The most striking fact about Weimar was not that the Nazis managed to destroy the Social Democrats and...

    The Politico ^ | February 24, 2016 | Nolan D. McCaskill
    MIT professor and intellectual Noam Chomsky attributes Donald Trump's success in the Republican presidential primary to "fear" and a "breakdown of society." In an interview published Tuesday, AlterNet's Aaron Williams asked Chomsky for his thoughts on Trump's "surprising progress." After a second-place finish in Iowa, the billionaire has stormed to consecutive double-digit wins in New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada. "Fear, along with the breakdown of society during the neoliberal period," Chomsky responded. "People feel isolated, helpless, victim of powerful forces that they do not understand and cannot influence." Chomsky compared the political environment that's allowed Trump to flourish to...

    Stating flatly that the oppression black slaves faced has not changed in 400 years, progressive hero Noam Chomsky said that the time is now to pay descendants reparations for using Africans to build up the U.S. economy. Asked at a Harvard University forum about supporting reparations, he said: "Would I? Very much so. Not just African Americans. We ourselves didn't own slaves, but we -- me -- are rich and privileged because of the torture of blacks for centuries. And yes we own them reparations," said Chomsky, the Institute Professor of Linguistics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. JFK Jr. Forum...

    Houston Space Examiner ^ | June 24, 2015 | Mark R. Whittington
    According to a Tuesday piece in Motherboard, Noam Chomsky, a philosopher and political commentator, and Lawrence Krauss, a physicist and cosmologist, had a public dialogue about space exploration. Being both men of the far left, they concluded that space travel should be best left to robots and conducted by governments. The conclusions are the exact opposite of what the prevailing trends are in space policy.

    WND ^ | August 16, 2015 | Joseph Farah
    Because of my unshakable belief in the Bible and its uncanny track record of predictions of future events, I have been accused of being an apocalyptic doomsdayer. It’s not accurate, because I see a glorious future for planet Earth – the restoration of all things including complete justice and real world peace. What I found remarkable today is that secular people, atheists, agnostics and materialists seem to be the real doomsdayers in our world. It was just about a year ago that Noam Chomsky, all of the above plus a radical left-wing idealist, wrote that the world was facing imminent...

    Noma Chomsky is America's most famous anti-Israel intellectual. I came across this interview that he did, where he revealed that his Paternal and Maternal grandparents were ultra-Orthodox Jews http://tabletmag.com/jewish-news-and-politics/50260/qa-noam-chomsky This revelation is evidence of the damage that our Marxist universities inflict on young people from religious families. The more prestigious a university is in the eyes of the liberal media, the more Marxist it is. This should alert Freepers who are hoping to send their children to college in the next few years, to be very careful in their choice of college. Your son might end up becoming like Michael...

    The US didn’t create ISIS, but it did create Noam Chomsky by funding him and hoping that he had some useful insights into linguistics. Instead his only insight was into following up on the earlier work of his colleague Goebbels. The appearance of ISIS and the general spread of radical jihadism is a fairly natural outgrowth of Washington wielding its sledgehammer at the fragile society of Iraq, which was barely hanging together after a decade of US-UK sanctions so onerous that the respected international diplomats who administered them via the UN both resigned in protest, charging that they were “genocidal.”...

    Flopping Aces ^ | 02-22-14 | Dave The Sage
    Apocalypticism has exploded in popularity and, while nuclear war and pandemics have always been a starting point, the concept of the Zombie Apocalypse trumps them all. The appeal and wild popularity of shows like The Walking Dead, movies like World War Z, and the slew of apocalyptic, gloom and doom series and specials on cable television continues to grow by leaps and bounds. But the reasons behind such interest are often subconscious at times and not fully understood. The Leftist activist and agitator Noam Chomsky was recently asked “why there’s this preoccupation with the apocalypse and with zombies right now...
