Compares Tea Party to Weimar Germany
I thought Chomsky was dead, must have been confusing him with Howard Zinn. Noam is alive, but still not well. For if he were of sane mind he would not be expressing fear that a Hitleresque leader might emerge to lead the Tea Party and bring upon illegal immigrants and blacks what Hitler brought upon the Jews.
The article is here. It ends with Chomsky’s warning, “I do not believe that this is far from happening”. Chomsky has never sworn allegiance to the truth but in this case I believe he is sincere. Once you close your mind to objective truth you forfeit all connection to reality. Chomsky has allowed himself no knowledge of the motivation or goals of the Tea Party. He does not fear what they stand for because he does not know what they stand for. He fears the unknown, and trembles.
