Chomsky: Today’s GOP is a Candidate for Most Dangerous Organization in Human History – In Part 2 of our wide-ranging conversation with the world-renowned dissident Noam Chomsky, we talk about the conflict in Syria, the rise of ISIS, Saudi Arabia, the political crisis in Brazil, the passing of the pioneering lawyer Michael Ratner, the U.S. relationship with Cuba, Obama’s visit to Hiroshima and today’s Republican Party. “If we were honest, we would say something that sounds utterly shocking and no doubt will be taken out of context and lead to hysteria on the part of the usual suspects,” Chomsky says, “but the fact of the matter is that today’s Republican Party qualify as candidates for the most dangerous organization in human history. Literally.”

    After watching Noam's documentary "Requiem for the American Dream", he literally described Hillary Clinton in what's wrong with the political system of big money buying candidates and receiving favors in return. So I really don't get how he can say he'll support Clinton over Trump, even though he supported Sanders and how she screwed him over.

    Regardless of who I vote for it will never be for the corporation's
    party, Democrats. Poor Bernie Sanders, who was probably the only REAL
    progressive candidate, wanted to reinstate Glass Steagull, which all but
    assured the bankers would conspire to get Hillary elected. For
    reference this is Glass Steagull—>

    "The Glass-Steagall Act, also known as
    the Banking Act of 1933 (48 Stat. 162), was passed by Congress in 1933
    and prohibits commercial banks from engaging in the investment business.
    It was enacted as an emergency response to the failure of nearly 5,000
    banks during the Great Depression."

    Hillary in a paid speech to Goldman-Black Rock, an American Global
    investment management corporation, "You need both a public and private
    position". I think people gloss over the fact of WHO she said this to.

    Sorry but this guy is a fraud and a liar. If he was who he says he is, he would not say 'terrorism is all over the world. Everywhere you look'. Much of the earth has no terrorism problem. He is, in a very cunning fashion, propagating the values that enable the suite of lies that are causing the problem.

    "Cut off the flow of arms." It's not like it's a mistake to have a designated war zone to expend aging ammunition and test new tech. Money making at its best. Get all the nationalism behind the war effort to take people's minds off the fact that they're barely making it and have zero chance of a future.

    Today's GOP is a Candidate for Most Dangerous Organization in Human History Wow. Fast forward a few months and watch Obama attack an airport during a ceasefire, surrender the airport to ISIS, and the Pentagon saying the dog ate their homework. Chom, when you can actually get him to make a point, is the epitome of the liberal thought-fudger which has led to Scandinavia's de facto surrender to violent perverse Islam.

    Bill Clinton is a violent serial rapist, Hillary threatens his victims to silence them. The Clinton's are liars, murderers, thieves and drug runners.

    Noam Chomsky is, without a doubt, very intelligent and I always like to hear what he has to say.

    However, around the 8:00 mark. he implies that we can resolve the problem of ISIS the way the British resolved terrorism in Northern Ireland: by listening to the demands of those committing the violence. REALLY?

    Islamic Terrorism today is often compared to the IRA in the 1970s 80s. But the IRA's demands were political and centered around British Rule over Northern Ireland.

    What are the demands of ISIS? ISIS wants to KILL all those who do not subscribe to its brand of .Sunni Islam and establish a World Wide Islamic Caliphate, under the control of ISIS.

    If I may use a "Star Trek" Analogy, the IRA were like the Klingons, and ISIS is like the BORG!

    ISIS even KILLS other Sunnis who do not obey it! I do not remember the IRA killing other Catholics.

    Chomsky says that to solve the Syrian Civil War, all we have to do is just STOP the flow of arms, on one side, from Russia and Iran and the flow on the other side from

    But look at Syria in a much broader context.

    The Syrian Civil War of 2011 to the present (where Sunnis fight Shia) has been compared to the violence in Northern Ireland in the 1970s and 80s. But there is a BIG difference. In the 70s a Saudi Araind 80s you did not see Catholics from, say, Italy and France, pouring into Northern Ire,and to kill Protestants. And you did not see Protestants from, say, Germany and Norway, pouring into Northern Ireland to kill Catholics.

    In stark contrast to Northern Ireland, for several years now, we see Sunnis from Saudi Arabia and other Gulf States, pouring into Syria to kill Shia. And Shia from Lebanon (Hezzbollah) and Iran have been pouring into Syria to kill Sunnis.

    The dispute in Northern Ireland was more Political than Religious.

    The violence in Northern Ireland was NOT a manifestation of a General Catholic / Protestant Civil War within Christianity.!

    However, I am afraid that the Syrian Civil War IS a manifestation of a Sunni /Shia Civil War within Islam. And this Civil War has been going on and off for about 600 years!

    Lot to be said for not tearing down a flawed party so the horrible party can grow and thrive.

    Chomsky tears down the easy target, though there is no evidence in human history where the desire for perfect is a perfect outcome. "The Perfect is the enemy of the Good". His entire life story.

    I used to like Chomsky until he supported Hugo Chavez.

    Trump makes everyone go nuts lol just by telling the truth in New York accent. Gnome is reduced to supporting neocon neo-liberal wreck Hillary. What a joke! He's like one of those fading, aging Hollywood celebs who takes up environmentalism or liberalism to curry favor with Hollywood execs and stay relevant. Meanwhile the Hollywood exec they're sucking up to has a carbon footprint bigger than small countries and are like greed become flesh.

    Again Chomsky is totally wrong on this whole issue, just by refusing to talk about religion and the american ILLEGAL invasion in the Muslim world. and he is ignoring many facts which he prefers not to discuss, he seems to talk from his perspective which is based on a humanist/communist philosophy, and when you do this then you in all of this there are many more factors that play a role not just Islam but also the west and the NWO that all have stakes in hat is happening and in my opinion it is greed that is in many factors a cause a choice of right and wrong and failure of humans to seek divine council. this man who support Sanders. I wonder where he rally stands surely He does not sound to me a brilliant person, but a talker and just a talker…. Sorry he is just a mere human being and his concepts are shallow and ignorant about many other influences that he likes to ignore….
