Noam Chomsky is one of the most popular names within the liberal academic establishment. While he has occassionally taken at the Democratic Party he usually ends up supporting, he is known for reserving his most ignorant statements to target conservatives.
In this image, shared by leftist Facebook echo chamber Occupy Democrats, Chomsky is quoted saying that the Republican Party is “the most dangerous organization in human history.”
This is a pretty heavy charge. Surely, there are other honorable mentions the professor looked over? Let’s take a look at just a few examples.
Firstly, the Ku Klux Klan — which was initially founded by southern Democrats in the immediate aftermath of the Civil War. That organization was responsible for countless attacks against newly freed slaves, and continued to target black Americans for generations to come.
Next, there’s the Soviet Communists, who are directly responsible for the deaths of almost 100 million people they themselves governed. They can also be held partially responsible for mass killings in other communist nations, which received Soviet support.
Then, of course, there’s the Nazi Party in Germany — an authoritarian faction bent on transforming Germany into a militant imperial power. While they failed, their impact on the world is still felt as many survivors can still recall the horrors of the Holocaust. They are responsible for an estimated 6-10 million deaths.
But no, forget all of those — clearly, people who want to lower taxes are far more of a threat, right?
