Left-wing academic Noam Chomsky has declared that the Republican Party is the “most dangerous organization in human history” for their stance on climate change.
Chomsky, still considered to be a darling of the left, told the BBC that, unlike ISIS or North Korea, the Republican Party is “dedicated to destroying the prospects for organized human existence.”
Asked whether Donald Trump would damage America, Chomsky argued that the “main damage he will do is to the world, and it’s already happening.”
“The most significant aspect of the Trump election, and it’s not just Trump, it’s the whole Republican party, is their departing from the rest of the world on climate change,” he said.
However, Chomsky also took the opportunity to attack the Democratic Party, claiming that they “gave up on the working class 40 years ago,” but he suggested that Republicans appeal to the working class only through policies of “white supremacy.”
“The working class is not [the Democratic Party’s] constituency, no one in the political system is,” he said. “The Republicans claim to be, but they’re basically their class enemy. However, they can appeal to people on the basis of claims about religion and white supremacy.”
