Mediaite: Add Noam Chomsky to the growing list of people using the Nazi analogy lately. Speaking to the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, he alluded to right-wing media as “substantive content — crazy content, but it does give answers,” and warned that if Americans weren’t properly educated about what was really happening to them, they could be in for a repeat of the Nazi takeover of Germany in the 1930s.

I'm shocked! Oh wait...no I'm not. That's all these people have. And...the tards who always use the term "fearmongering" will likely defend this "fearmongering" propaganda because it works for them (or at least want it to). This is a typical "I'll say something so shocking that people won't want to align themselves with this view" chess move. It's all the rage.

Put away your crystal ball. It's broken and clearly not serving you well.

Meh. I had to watch Fox during the run-up to the Iraq war. Goebbels must have been applauding from whatever vat of boiling sulphur he's currently occupying in hell.

I am truthfully sick and tired of the NAZI word, just as I am about the constant race card being used. I don't think I have ever seen anything like what we are seeing in our country right now. Thank you 24/7 media coverage.

Other than advancing compiler theory considerably, Chomsky's existence on this planet is utterly useless.

Religion, Race, excessive nationalism, lies, misrepresentations, fear mongering, polarization, anything who disagrees is a communist... sounds about right.

The reason you've never seen anything like this before is because there has never been a revolution pulled off by radicals this successfully before. They will go to any length imaginable to discredit the opposition so it doesn't call attention to exactly what they are trying to do, which is topple Capitalism and bring down the USA. Wake up people, this IS their TRUE agenda!
