Chomsky on Zizek et al.

I'm not a Chomsky fan. But I think he gets this right.  [via Reddit]
Chomsky, as he himself notes, is a guy who thinks that Angela Davis has interesting ideas...but he thinks Zizek, Derrida, Lacan, and that crew are right out. So...that's saying something...

Incidentally, in case you didn't realize...Davis's position was in the so-called "History of Consciousness" department at UCSC. Here's a list of current courses. Jebus. The words "academic fraud" come to mind... If you're not concerned about leftist bias in the academy, you ought to poke around on that web page for a bit.
