Why Chomsky and Zizek are wrong on the US elections
“In a conversation with British Channel 4 aired just
before the US election Slavoj Zizek had said he would vote for Trump,
for “it will be a kind of big awakening. New political processes will be
set in motion,” a point he reiterated later after the election in his interview with Mehdi Hasan.
On the opposite side, the distinguished American linguist and critical thinker Noam Chomsky restated his pre-election position in a conversation with Hassan and famously said leftists who didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton to block Trump “made a bad mistake”.”
