Noam Chomsky on the Bernie Sanders Phenomenon

Noam Chomsky had some interesting things to say about the Bernie Sanders phenomenon, calling Sanders a “decent, honest person.” In the clip from Democracy Now, he points out that the policies pushed by Sanders are supported by a majority of Americans, and that President Eisenhower would not have been surprised by his views. He says today’s Democrats are the moderate Republicans of the past. He thus believes the characterization of Sanders as a “radical” or “extremist” is erroneous.
