Slavoj Žižek Is a Puffed-Up Idiot Who Does Great Damage

by Raymond Lotta | Updated November 15, 2016 | Revolution Newspaper |


Slavoj Žižek, an influential fool-of-a-philosopher who often poses as a “communist,” declared his support for Donald Trump on British TV. A victory for Trump, according to Žižek, will help the Republicans and Democrats “rethink themselves”—and could bring about “a kind of big awakening.” And speaking from his “what-me-worry” perch, Žižek pronounced that Trump “will not introduce fascism.” (“Slavoj Žižek would vote for Trump”)

This is wrong, this is poison. Standing with racism, misogyny, and xenophobia has absolutely nothing to do with the morality and politics of genuine communism—and, whatever the twisted rationale, actually flies in the face of bitter historical experience, where the first act of the Nazis upon coming to power was to crush the revolutionaries.

Anyone who wants to understand a truly communist analysis of that historical experience and its relevance to today should explore the work of Bob Avakian, including:


The Truth About Right-Wing Conspiracy... And Why Clinton and the Democrats Are No Answer”;

The Fascists and the Destruction of the ‘Weimar Republic’... And What Will Replace It”;

The Coming Civil War and Repolarization for Revolution in the Present Era; and

Conquer the World? The International Proletariat Must and Will.
