"It's overwhelmingly a far-right phenomenon": Noam Chomsky explains why so many Americans will not get "vaccinated"
Once again, America's most famous "leftist" has many wondering if he was always such a dope
Can someone who cares about him, and his legacy, not step in, for his sake, and get him to shut up? How one would do that I have no idea, since he thinks his every word is genius, and that anyone who disagrees with him is stupid. As one who’s tried to argue with him (about Bush/Cheney’s election theft), and who was privy to an epic back-and-forth with him on 9/11 (which he thinks went down as advertised), I can tell you from firsthand experience (nor am I the only one who can) that Chomsky never actually addresses counter-evidence, but, metaphorically speaking, just sails up high above it—high enough to gaze down at anyone who dares present it to him—and calls it wrong. It’s a mode of “disputation” all his own, which I call “argument by levitation.”
So there’s actually no way to tell Noam Chomsky that he’s (please forgive my rudeness) full of shit, because he knows everything, so if you tell him something that he doesn’t know, it must be wrong, there being nothing that he doesn’t know. Thus Chomsky knows that “vaccine hesitancy” is a “far-right phenomenon,” and that the FDA and CDC are honest regulators of Big Pharma, just as he’s always known that JFK’s assassination didn’t matter (“Who cares?” he once said on that subject, publicly), and that 9/11 WAS the doing of 19 Muslim zealots, and that Bush/Cheney’s election theft was no big deal (he once told me this himself), and—astoundingly—that “January 6th” was an “attempted coup,” which he’s compared to Hitler’s Beer Hall Putsch, asserting, with his usual clueless over-confidence, that “historians of fascism” all agree with that ridiculous equation. (What “January 6th” does recall from Hitler’s meteoric history is the burning of the Reichstag.) Chomsky also knows that the Republican Party—not, say, the CIA, or the Nazis, or the World Economic Forum—is “the most dangerous organization in human history,” and (of course) that Donald Trump is just like Adolf Hitler.
If this were just about the 93-year-old Noam Chomsky, it would be appropriate to turn a tactfully blind eye to this latest imbecility, offensive though it is. (Does he actually believe that all those “vaccine-hesitant” Americans—all those black Americans, and Hispanics—are out on the “far right”?) However, this is not just about that ruined “leftist” sage, but about what calls itself “the left” today, since nearly everybody who “identifies as” being on “the left” today appears to worship him, and therefore swallows even his astonishingly cruel and ignorant pronouncements on how anyone who will not get injected is a fascist—when, in fact, this lethal “vaccine” program is itself a patently fascistic project, and Chomsky’s fierce endorsement of that project is fascistic, too.
