Noam Chomsky: The Tea Party is a sign of the failure of the Left


Starts at 39 seconds

“Most of them [The Tea Partiers] are those who want to be organized by the left, these are people with real grievances… Those are the things the left ought to be organizing them around… But the left is not offering them anything. [The Tea Partiers] aren’t talking about abortion rights or religion, they’re talking about straight economic populist issues. If there was a functioning liberal left, that’s what they’d be organizing on.”
