Noam Chomsky Calls Out the Antifa
"As for Antifa, it's a minuscule fringe of the Left, just as its predecessors were," Noam Chomsky told the Washington Examiner. "It's a major gift to the Right, including the militant Right, who are exuberant."
Chomsky said, "what they do is often wrong in principle – like blocking talks – and [the movement] is generally self-destructive."
"When confrontation shifts to the arena of violence, it's the toughest and most brutal who win – and we know who that is," said Chomsky, a professor emeritus of linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "That's quite apart from the opportunity costs – the loss of the opportunity for education, organizing, and serious and constructive activism."
It's good to see Chomsky call out the Antifa, He is very confused about libertarianism but spot on here. He is much better on this than mainstream media, which is attempting to portray the Antifa as heroic fighters of white supremacists. Chomsky knows the score. They are both bad news.
