Chomsky = Hitler

A timely reminder that none of the noise of Walmart Wobblies matters a jot for retail, ballot box politics:

 
Now, for a week or so I did wonder what Donald Trump hoped to achieve with what was, for him, a restrained reaction to such unprecedented cultural lunacy. Now I get it: today’s left has the millennials’ goldfish attention span combined with an addiction to the drug of escalation that requires a hit daily. So stand back and let their moral and mental derangements play out for all the electorate to see. More shy Democrat patriots will vote for Trump than shy Republican BLM-ers will vote for Joe Biden.

    It’s a bit early for the equivalent of Rebespierre to be dragged to the guillotine. Or is there someone more lunatic than Chomsky among the vast herd of nihilists that plagues us?

    PS good article on the subject of nihilism at Quadrant.

    Well stated.

    I never thought I’d see the day that Chomsky seemed less deranged than the rest of the left.
    Or they even more deranged than Chomsky.

    Its the equivalent of the new chap at the Lubyanka congratulating themselves on their promotion while hosing down their predecessors brains off the wall.
    They know they are pure but it was unfortunate that the 17 ex-executioners before him turned out to be traitors.

    Paranoia: A fun game, but a crap way to live.
    https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Paranoia
    Paranoia is not a humorous roleplaying game about a distinctly Orwellian, dystopian future and living in a sealed city run by a psychotic computer. On the contrary, Alpha Complex is a utopia. Friend Computer is wise and benevolent and not at all murderous. There are no communists, mutants, traitors, or secret societies. Technology is more advanced than it has ever been in the history of civilization, and research and development does not routinely involve handing out prototype weapons which will of course never let loose a nuclear explosion if dropped. There is nothing of note outside of Alpha Complex, and all its citizens are completely happy to live inside it and never leave. Happiness is mandatory. Unhappiness is treason. Treason is punishable by death.

    When the Left has become too bizarre for the likes of even Noam Chomsky (the leftist’s, leftist) then you officially know that today’s left has jumped the shark. Of course none of that is a surprise to us – ordinary people who are sick of the insanity of the left’s ever changing, ever evolving attack on culture, history, science and reality.

    Still saying Trump for the win, with a 100+ million votes! 😁

    You have hit the nail on the head there, CL.

    The walkaway has begun (from 2019).

    Already done that at Teh Grauniad-on-the-Yarra.

    Not at all frightening, but of some relief.

    Voltairean liberals are allies in this battle.

    About time they weighed in.

    Already happening. 150 virtue signallers signed a letter from Harper’s Magazine but withdrew their signatures when they realised who else had signed.

    Nevertheless it is cheering to know that there is still some decency on the remnants of the old-school liberal left:

    I liked this comment there:

    Not sure who’s funnier — the cancel culture maniacs insisting that cancel culture doesn’t exist while trying to cancel those who disagree, or the brave souls who signed a letter decrying cancel culture then immediately unsigned the letter out of fear of cancel culture.

    I don’t know about the rest of you but I’m enjoying the lefty canabalism. These people made the rules, set the table and are now discovering that they are on the menu. Let the frenzy continue, let the insanity and struggle sessions play out and like the red guards in China back in the 70s the sjws will be removed come the results in November. Biden wins the left will suddenly become quiet as lambs. Trump wins as big as I think he will the left leadership will need a scapegoat. The radicals will be handy for that purpose.

  21. Hay Stockard

    I love the comments in the article.

  22. Archivist

    Gloat if you like, but none of these people – including Chomsky- are responsible for “cancel culture”.
    Chomsky’s a crusty old-school leftist from the sixties. He has no love for the Democrat party, Obama, or postmodernists, and actually believes in free speech. He’s wrong a lot but occasionally he’s right on the money.

  23. mareeS

    I thought Chomsky had died years ago. Pity.

    The stopped clock effect. Except the incomprehensible Kampuchean genocide denier has probably only ever been correct twice every century as opposed to twice every day.

  26. Professor Fred Lenin

    Chomsky , Alinsky ,Trotsky ,Soros all have something in comon !

    so I’m guessing your total knowledge of this topic was reading a tweet by Iowahawk.

    Look, you can’t complain about cancel culture, then cheer when people you don’t like get cancelled.
    Chuckling about “the left eating itself” is basically saying, “I’m appalled by what they do, except when it suits me.”

  28. Megan

    Archivist needs to understand the concept of schadenfruede. That’s some convoluted reasoning he’s got going on there.

  29. Lee

    If a leftist gets hoist by his own petard, I’m not going to stop them or complain about it.
    Reap what you sow.
    I, however, will not play by the Left’s rules.

  30. Lee

    I can’t say I have been following Chomsky’s musings over the years, as I don’t like his politics, but on this one occasion he is 100% right about free speech, and those who attack him and others for supporting free speech are intellectual pygmies and hypocrites, who would be the first to bleat about “free speech” if it was denied them.

  31. Spurgeon Monkfish III

    Look, you can’t complain about cancel culture, then cheer when people you don’t like get cancelled.

    FFS, you sound like a certain Randist imbecile.

    I’m not cheering anything.

    The unintelligible Kampuchean genocide denier is your bog standard pretentious pseudo intellectual collectivist idiot – i.e. he’s basically wrong about everything except on the rare occasions where he might (invariably inadvertently) actually get something correct.

    He very stupidly and arrogantly sowed the wind and he is now reaping the whirlwind. I am entirely within my rights to have a good ol’ chuckle when my ideological enemies turn on each other.

    BTW, I’ve had the misfortune to have been aware of the pompous idiot for decades, hence the laughs at his recent “struggles”.

  32. Archivist

    Archivist needs to understand the concept of schadenfruede.

    Yeah well, resist that temptation.
    Because basically, you’re happy when people that you don’t like get cancelled.
    In which case, you’re no better than the wokest of the SJWs that you deplore.
    Chomsky’s not much of a scalp in the ‘eat their own’ stakes anyway. He’s always been something of an outsider and never really played ball with mainstream progressives. The people on twitter saying “I love his books but he’s gone to far this time” Are lying. They haven’t read his books. He always goes too far.

  33. Megan

    I’d much rather enjoy the squirming of a nailed Chomsky than be thought a sanctimonious twit.

  34. Archivist

    No need to choose. Apparently you’ve achieved both.

    “Because basically, you’re happy when people that you don’t like get cancelled.
    In which case, you’re no better than the wokest of the SJWs that you deplore.”

    What a load of garbage..and such sanctimony. What is your solution “Archivist”? Like all revolutions and purges in history, it is quite clear to me that this pernicious and sinister cancel culture will only cease when more of the “woke” get cancelled themselves. Because..that’s how revolutions work. Do I revel in this? No…because unlike the woke fascists I happen to believe in free speech…because unlike the woke fascists I am quite happy to engage in free speech and dialogue with my ideological opponents who might disagree with me….BUT THE WOKE FASCISTS AREN’T and they make it quite clear that they don’t want any dialogue or conversation…they want to shut down debate. These woke fascists have spent the last few years using social media (and mainstream media)…baying and lynching people whose opinions they don’t like…shutting down conversation, silencing people, getting people sacked etc. etc. Last month J K Rowling was smeared, abused and denounced by a coterie of men who call themselves trans activists for her crime of saying that..rightly…..”women menstruate”, David Starkey was cancelled last week for speaking plainly, Pauline Hanson was purged from Channel Nine this week for her speech. Who next?

    I like a bit of schadenfruede..and why shouldn’t we…given what is happening in the west.

    Because sadly, knowing my history as I do, these king of purges only end when the purgers start to get attacked.

  36. Lee

    Last month J K Rowling was smeared, abused and denounced by a coterie of men who call themselves trans activists for her crime of saying that..rightly…..”women menstruate” …

    Not that many years ago, you would have been derided, mocked, and your sanity even questioned by everyone (including feminists) if you said or implied that a male could menstruate.
    Not in these fact-free days, where feelings and not offending the LQBT Brigade trump reason and logic.

  37. Archivist

    Because sadly, knowing my history as I do, these king of purges only end when the purgers start to get attacked.

    Actually even then, they usually just keep going.

    But I think you’re right that they’re veering into absurdity. If they think Chomsky is some kind of right-wing Trumpian fearmonger then they’re idiots. Hence CL’s ironic headline, making fun of them.

  38. Archivist

    I don’t know how many of you have been following this, but JK Rowling has been engaged in full-blown cultural trench warfare with trans activists since last December.

    People are dismissive of this: “she’s got enough money that she doesn’t care.” But it has to be eliciting some kind of cost on her. Reputational cost; personal stress; surely.

    There are quite a few of us here who know that Rowling has been at the forefront of fighting back against the nonsense that is “trans activism”. For that she has been abused, smeared and threatened with violence.

  40. Megan

    I admire Rowling. What is your point?

    The wee brained archivist has clearly spent far too long in the stacks. Blind to the beam but busy pointing out the motes.

    Dollars to donuts, it is virtually all coming from her erstwhile “friends” on the Left, for whom the truth and unpalatable facts means nothing.
    She has my respect for standing up to the bullies, even if I don’t agree with her politics otherwise.
