Radical America-hater Noam Chomsky on Trump: Almost a Death Knell for Human Race

Radical America-hater Noam Chomsky weighed in on the Donald Trump campaign Saturday in an article in the far left Guardian newspaper.

Chomsky warned a Trump presidency could wipe out the human race.

What effect would electing Donald Trump have? It’s hard to say because we don’t really know what he thinks. And I’m not sure he knows what he thinks. He’s perfectly capable of saying contradictory things at the same time. But there are some pretty stable elements of his ideology, if you can even grant him that concept. One of them is: “Climate change is not taking place.” As he puts it: “Forget it.” And that’s almost a death knell for the species – not tomorrow, but the decisions we take now are going to affect things in a couple of decades, and in a couple of generations it could be catastrophic.

But, he’s not very supportive of the alternative, either.

If it were between Trump and Hillary Clinton, would you vote for Clinton? If I were in a swing state, a state that matters, and the choice were Clinton or Trump, I would vote against Trump. And by arithmetic that means hold your nose and vote for Clinton.

I think we’ll be fine, Noam.
