Noam Chomsky: Trump’s ‘dedication’ to destroying human life even worse than Hitler

Published

on

Noam Chomsky suggested President Donald Trump’s “dedication” to destroying human life was even worse than Adolf Hitler.

The famed political scientist and linguist has described the Republican Party as the “most dangerous organization in human history,” due to its policies on climate change and nuclear weapons, and he said Trump was single-handedly making the world more dangerous for the human species, reported Democracy Now.

“There have been plenty of monsters in the past, plenty of them,” Chomsky said. “But you can’t find one who was dedicated, with passion, to destroying the prospects for organized human life. Hitler was horrible enough, but not that.”

Trump himself evidently believes in climate change, Chomsky said, because his golf course applied for permission from Ireland to build a wall to protect against rising seawaters, and his administration has issued reports acknowledging rising global temperatures.

“They said if we extrapolate current trends by the end of the century, the climate will have warmed several degrees centigrade, meaning a huge rise in sea level, which they underestimate,” Chomsky said. “So, basically, we’re going over the cliff anyway, and automotive emissions really don’t add much to this, so there’s no point cutting them back.”

The Trump administration was pursuing policies that would make climate change more severe, Chomsky said, despite an apparent recognition of the risks for global calamity.

“The assumption of the department is that everyone in the world is as criminally insane as we are, and isn’t going to do anything about it,” Chomsky said. “And since — on that assumption, yeah, let’s just rob while the planet burns, putting Nero into the shade — he only fiddled while Rome burned.”

“I can’t think of anything like this in human history,” he added. “You just can’t find words to describe it. And at the peak of the monstrosity is, in fact, the Trump administration.”

‘A wild, disgusting, ugly ride’: MSNBC analyst warns 2020 will be ‘desperate’ Trump running to avoid arrest

Published

During a panel discussion with political pundits, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace warned that we're about to enter one of worst campaigns of our lives.

Washington Post reporter Phil Rucker noted that President Donald Trump's Orlando kickoff was essentially a repeat of his 2016 kickoff, with the same policies and same promises.

"It felt like déjà vu for both of us who covered the 2016 campaign because it was the same 'populist' messages, same grievances, same lines, even and the same response with the same crowd. And the same logo," Rucker said.

But it was MoveOn communications chief Karine Jean-Pierre that warned of a horrific election season as Trump runs a race not only for his presidency but for his life.

Former White House communications director Hope Hicks on Wednesday denied under oath knowing anything about the hush-money scheme set up by former Trump "fixer" Michael Cohen to pay off President Donald Trump's former mistresses.

"Hicks told lawmakers today that she did not have knowledge during 2016 campaign of hush-money payments made in run-up to election," reports CNN's Manu Raju. "Also she wouldn’t discuss what she learned about those payments during her time at White House because of immunity claims."

Trump’s 2020 campaign strategy is familiar: Troll the libs!

Published

Late on Tuesday, I got an email from an unusual source. A reporter for the conservative publication the Washington Examiner asked if I'd be interested in sharing thoughts on Joe Biden's history of joking "about 'locking up your daughters'" and on "Biden's view of women and gender relations." This was in light of my previous criticisms of Biden's apparent condescension towards girls and women, and his pockmarked history on gender relations in general.
