On Noam Chomsky

His department at M.I.T. is funded by the Pentagon. He makes people pay for his "property rights". He hangs around and sympathizes with Holocaust deniers. He constantly denigrates Israel while giving Islamic oppressors (this bull-crap currently going on in Syria, for instance) a total pass. He's accused our current duly elected President of being a war criminal who should be dragged in front of a Nuremberg caliber tribunal. He often refers to himself as an "American dissident" and compares himself to dissidents of the old Soviet Union. He's expressed admiration for the type of socialism practiced in Vietnam. He was an apologist for the Pol Pot regime in Cambodia. And he presently lives in a community that has a minority population of 1%. Oh, yeah, the schmuck's a total national treasure.

    1. And hopefully he is ignored by most people. The rational ones tune him out fairly quickly I' sure.

  3. He's an interesting thinker. You can disagree with him and that's fine, but he brings up topics that need be vetted. And so, just as you brought him up here, you apparently recognize that.

    1. Interesting is an understatement I suppose. He needs to be understood for what he is and what he stands for. Truth is how one fights the insidious.

  4. You forgot that he's a highly overrated linguist whose "interesting" theories have been discredited and discarded to a considerable degree by serious scholars (a group to which Chomsky has not belonged for a long time).
