Supposedly the most advanced contemporary philosopher; a genuine essentialist thinker who managed to fool the Jew-prog universe (The Guardian Of Zion, Verso-Books, etc.) for years into believing that he was ‘one of clan,’ meanders until he eventually admits that it is Right Wing politics that appeals to Working Class people.
Zizek is telling the truth, but he manoeuvres clumsily. Zigzag shamelessly wraps his obvious observation with too many apologetics. Very disappointing indeed.
Zigzag Zizek was at the core of my intellectual inspiration two decades ago. But like many others, he decided long ago that it was The Guardian Of Zion that would pay the bills. And indeed, moral and intellectual duplicity has guaranteed him a frequent slot with Amy Goodman and Democracy Later. After all, lying for the cause is a kosher procedure.
