- Although left-wing author Noam Chomsky was glad to see former President Donald Trump voted out of office in 2020, that doesn’t mean that he doesn’t have some vehement criticisms of the Democratic Party and American liberalism — including Democratic views on foreign policy.
- Chomsky, now 92, appeared on Hedges’ show, “On Contact,” which airs on RT America. Hedges, like Chomsky, has been extremely critical of the Democratic Party. “Just as you can’t get the Republican mobs to admit that the election was lost, you can’t get liberal American intellectuals to recognize that the United States is a leading terrorist state.”
- Chomsky notes some examples of U.S. foreign policy being condemned in other countries — for example, the International Court of Justice slamming the Reagan’s intervention in Nicaragua during the 1980s as a violation of international law. Chomsky also slammed U.S. intervention in Cuba, noting its actions during the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962. “It was a serious terrorist war that almost led to the destruction of the world,” Chomsky told Hedges.
