Chomsky Opposed to BDS
"If you really hate the Palestinians it's a good step because it is going to harm them." - Noam Chomsky
Perhaps this is common knowledge among those of us who follow such things, but I was unaware of it.
We all saw the recent Finkelstein video in which that particular... person... objected to BDS as a sort-of "cult," but I had no idea that Grandpa Munster was also opposed.
There was a time when I admired Chomsky, before I realized that the so-called "manufacture of consent" was little more than warmed over Gramsci and before I became profoundly alienated from the progressive movement.
