Chomsky on the GOP: Has Any Organization Ever Been So Committed to Destruction of Life on Earth?

Democracy Now
April 26, 2017

Quote:
...AMY GOODMAN: I wanted to ask you about this comment that you made that the Republican Party, you said, is the most dangerous organization in world history. Can you explain?

NOAM CHOMSKY: I also said that itís an extremely outrageous statement. But the question is whether itís true. I mean, has there ever been an organization in human history that is dedicated, with such commitment, to the destruction of organized human life on Earth? Not that Iím aware of. Is the Republican organizationóI hesitate to call it a partyócommitted to that? Overwhelmingly. There isnít even any question about it...

Robert Mercer

...thinks that the Civil Rights Act was one of the great mistakes in modern American history.

...says that Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and nuclear war in general, were not as bad as people think. Itís survivable, he argues, and not only that; the radiation from it, he suggests, from the fallout, is good for people.

He has, according to his colleagues, a theory of humans which is that they have no inherent value. That a human being is only worth as much as they can earn. He argues that he earns thousands of times more than a school teacher, which makes him that much more valuable than school teachers.

--Yeah, I'd say that sounds like the rantings of a group committed to the destruction of the human race.

Robert Mercer is the chief financial backer of the Trump presidency, therefore that makes Mercer one of the most prominent Republicans in the world.
One cannot argue The Koch Brothers because their pet cause is the Libertarian Party. They will support Republicans but only if they kow tow to Libertarian values. They are just as likely to support Democrats if the Democrats help the Koch bottom line.

Both Kochs and Mercers, however, do support ALEC.

It's a direct result of the extremes of partisanship. The Democrats try to do good, so the Republicans have to try to do the opposite it every case. It's so blatant that the Republicans propose bills and then vote against them when they get much Democratic support!

They need to grow up and realize Congress is not a football game: Sometimes your opposition will do something that is actually good for the country.
