Yes Even Noam Chomsky Would Vote for Hillary Clinton

Remember what a relentless critic he is of US foreign policy. But despite the attempt of Bernie Maniacs to claim she's a neoconservative,  and Bernie even compared her to Dick Cheney last week, even Chomsky isn't taking the bait.

He's not one of these dishonest Emoprogs that claims there is no difference between the Dems and GOP-as Bernie himself did for many years.

"Noam Chomsky would “absolutely” choose Hillary Clinton over the Republican nominee if he lived in a swing state, but her primary challenger, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, “doesn’t have much of a chance," the MIT professor and intellectual said in a recent interview.

Chomsky, who lives in the blue state of Massachusetts, said he would vote for Clinton if he lived in a swing state such as Ohio."

“Oh absolutely…my vote would be against the Republican candidate,” Chomsky told Al Jazeera English’s Mehdi Hasan in a two-part interview — part of which will air Friday on “UpFront.”

Chomsky cited “enormous differences” between the two major political parties. “Every Republican candidate is either a climate change denier or a skeptic who says we can’t do it,” Chomsky said. “What they are saying is, ‘Let’s destroy the world.’ Is that worth voting against? Yeah.”

The MIT academic, a self-described libertarian socialist, called Sanders “a New Dealer” rather than a “socialist,” and praised him overall but offered a grim view for his campaign.

So even he gets her incrementalist message rather than Bernie's appeal to pure aspiration.
