Yeah, I know, I know. It’s Chomsky, so the RW loons will dismiss it as the worst of the left of the left. Plus, it’s on al Jazeera, so it’s a “muzzie” interview. And those same RW bastards won’t take responsibility for the fact that I will fight them to the end of my days because they hate me/fear me for everything I believe, everything about me. They will live on in some fantasy world where I want to hurt them. Republican voters, and especially Trump supporters, want someone to swing their big dick and stand down any opposition to PROTECT their frightened little selves.
I’m convinced the RW smells victory, and has become insane because of their fear that they’ll actually be in charge and fuck everything up like Bush did.
Having acknowledged the lunacy of the average Trump support/GOP voter, I found this interesting:
Renowned US academic Noam Chomsky says Bernie Sanders has the best policies of the Democratic presidential contenders, but does not have a real chance to win in a political system where elections are “mainly bought”. In the second part of an interview with Mehdi Hasan on Al Jazeera’s UpFront current affairs show, the MIT emeritus professor said he considered Sanders to be “basically a new dealer”. “I agree with him in a lot of things, not in other things,” Chomsky said. “I frankly think that in our system of mainly bought elections, he doesn’t have much of a chance.
“But if he were elected I think he would – of the current candidates – I think he’d be the one who would have, from my point of view, the best policies.”
Still, the majority of analysts still believe Clinton to be the likely presidential nominee to emerge from the Democratic primaries. If that was to happen, Chomsky told UpFront that he would absolutely vote for Clinton over any Republican, if he lived in a swing state.
“Oh absolutely… My vote would be against the Republican candidate,” said Chomsky, who lives in Massachusetts, a safe state for the Democrats.
Chomsky said there were clear differences between the two parties. “There are enormous differences,” he said. “Every Republican candidate is either a climate change denier or a sceptic who says we can’t do it. “What they are saying is, ‘Let’s destroy the world.’ Is that worth voting against? Yeah.“
I gleefully await the “Chomsky is an idiot” posts from “the right”.
Something tells me I’ll be waiting a while. They’ll be coming from the putative “left” because there’s nothing like snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
