Noam Chomsky endorses Jill Stein for President before MA primary

March 5, 2012 in Presidential Campaign

The Jill Stein for President campaign has confirmed on its facebook page that Noam Chomsky, world-famous linguist and political analyst, has endorsed Dr. Stein in the Massachusetts Green-Rainbow Party primary on Tuesday, March 6th. Here is the text of Chomsky’s public statement:

“Dear friends, I hope you’ll take the opportunity of the March 6th Green-Rainbow primary to cast a vote for resurgent democracy. A democracy that thrives outside of the Democratic and Republican Parties that are sponsored by and subservient to corporate America. And I hope you will consider joining me in supporting Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein – both with your vote and with a contribution to her campaign for people, peace and the planet.As you know, popular anger at the political and economic institutions, and the subordination of the former to the latter, has reached historic heights. And for sound reasons. There could hardly be a better time to open up the political debate to the just anger and frustrations of citizens who are watching the country move towards what might be irreversible decline while a tiny sector of concentrated wealth and power implements policies of benefit to them and opposed by the general population, whom they are casting adrift.

Jill Stein’s campaign is unifying the national Green Party, and ensuring that an urgently needed voice for democracy and justice will have a place on the ballot in the November election. Please join me in supporting Jill on March 6, and securing a voice foe a peaceful, just, green future in the presidential race.”

  4. Congratulations Jill! Chomsky’s endorsement firmly places Jill “further left” and as “definitively progressive.” Now if she can just convince more than “the choir” to vote for her…

  5. A suggestion to get more Green support. Please follow thru and reach all potential supporters. In 2008, I was going to vote for Cynthia McKinney. I tried many times to find out how I could join and where to help out. No one ever contacted me. Please don’t do that this time around.

  6. Social media will definitely help this cause– it’s a very powerful tool, and the greens need to utilize it to its full potential. This CAN happen!
