Today, students across America will be wetting their pants. And not in the good sense. Famed Marxist philosopher-clown Slavoj Zizek has just endorsed Donald Trump for the presidency.
Is it a joke or does he mean it? Of course, he means it. Unless he doesn’t. Is it a joke? Perhaps, but if it is a joke that probably means that he means it. In any event, the hordes of students who have glommed on to this highly overrated philosopher will be severely troubled by the fact that, between Hillary and Trump, Zizek prefers Trump.
One expects that he will be forever banned from American college campuses.
To Zizek, “Hillary is the true danger.” He continues to explain his preference:
In every society there is a whole network of unwritten rules, how politics works, and how you build consensus. Trump disturbed this. And if Trump wins, both big parties, Republicans and Democrats, would have to return to basics, rethink themselves, and maybe some things can happen there.
Zizek believes that Trump will produce a great American awakening:
That’s my desperate, very desperate hope, that if Trumps wins, listen, America is still not a dictatorial state, he will not introduce fascism. But it will be a kind of big awakening. New political processes will be set in motion, will be triggered.
Why not Hillary? Zizek explains that:
… she stands for this absolute inertia, the most dangerous one. Because she is a cold warrior, and so on, connected with banks, pretending to be socially progressive.
Now, put that in your bong and smoke it.
