    "The most important intellectual alive" is a pathological ayatollah of anti-American hate -- and the leader of the treacherous fifth-column Left.



    By David Horowitz


    Sep 26, 2001 (.....)There are many who ask how it is possible that our most privileged and educated youth should come to despise their own nation -- a free, open, democratic society -- and to do so with such ferocious passion. They ask how it is possible for American youth to even consider lending comfort and aid to the Osama bin Ladens and the Saddam Husseins (and the Communists before them). A full answer would involve a search of the deep structures of the human psyche, and its irrepressible longings for a redemptive illusion. But the short answer is to be found in the speeches and writings of an embittered academic and his intellectual supporters.

    (.....)
    One little pamphlet of Chomsky's -- "What Uncle Sam Really Wants" -- has already sold 160,000 copies, but this represents only the tip of the Chomsky iceberg. His venomous message is spread on tapes and CDs, and on the campus lecture circuit; he is promoted at rock concerts by superstar bands such as Pearl Jam, Rage Against the Machine and U-2 (whose lead singer Bono called Chomsky a "rebel without a pause"). He is the icon of Hollywood stars like Matt Damon whose genius character in the Academy Award-winning film "Good Will Hunting" is made to invoke Chomsky as the go-to authority for political insight.

    (.....)
    In fact, the Trade Center and the Pentagon targets of the terrorists present a real political problem for American leftists like Chomsky, who know better than to celebrate an event that is the almost predictable realization of their agitations and their dreams. The destroyed buildings are the very symbols of the American empire with which they have been at war for 50 years. In a memoir published on the eve of the attack, the '60s American terrorist Bill Ayers recorded his joy at striking one of these very targets: "Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon. The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them." In the wake of Sept. 11, Ayers -- a "Distinguished Professor of Education[!] at the University of Chicago -- had to feverishly backtrack and explain that these revealing sentiments of an "anti-war" leftist do not mean what they obviously do. Claiming to be "filled with horror and grief," Ayers attempted to reinterpret his terrorist years as an effort to explore his own struggle with "the intricate relationships between social justice, commitment and resistance."

    (.....)The twin towers are palace of the Great Satan himself -- they are the belly of the beast, the object of Chomsky's lifelong righteous wrath. But he is too clever and too cowardly to admit it. He knows that in the hour of the nation's grief the fact itself is a third rail he must avoid. And so he dismisses the very meaning of the terrorists' target in these words:

    "The primary victims, as usual, were working people: janitors, secretaries, firemen, etc. It is likely to be a crushing blow to Palestinians and other poor and oppressed people."
    Chomsky's deception which attempts to erase the victims who were not merely "janitors, secretaries, firemen, etc.," tells us more than we might care to know about his own standard of human concern.


    (.....)Chomsky offers this instruction in his 1986 pamphlet "What Uncle Sam Really Wants":

    "The people of the Third World need our sympathetic understanding and, much more than that, they need our help. We can provide them with a margin of survival by internal disruption in the United States. Whether they can succeed against the kind of brutality we impose on them depends in large part on what happens here."
    This is the voice of the fifth-column Left. Disruption in this country is what the terrorists want, and what the terrorists need, and what the followers of Noam Chomsky intend to give them.


    In his address before Congress on Sept. 19, President Bush reminded us:

    "We have seen their kind before. They are the heirs of all the murderous ideologies of the 20th century. By sacrificing human life to serve their radical visions, by abandoning every value except the will to power, they follow in the path of fascism, Nazism and totalitarianism. And they will follow that path all the way to where it ends in history's unmarked grave of discarded lies."

    President Bush was talking about the terrorists and their sponsors abroad. But he might just as well have been talking about their fifth-column allies at home.

    It's time for Americans who love their country to stand up, and defend it.

    I just got tired of the Chomsky love fetish going on, and decided to post the full thing.

    Also loosecannon, even your own wiki link admits he turned to the right in the 1970s (so has been in the right for 30+ years). :lol:

    Like I said, a former communist, a supporter of the Black Panthers and a radical leftist more typical of Obama's cabinet than of the right. He is a neocon. And quite likely a career CIA operative in the mold of Marcos Moulitsas and William F Buckley.

    Still ignoring my point that he is NO LONGER A LEFTIST, or are you going to start claiming that anyone who changes their political views to something totally opposite aka the right somehow retains all of their left wing views? Plus keep ignoring it says right there that: " In December 1974, she was murdered.[10] While her murder is unsolved, Horowitz alleges that the Panthers were responsible for her death, motivated, he states, by the desire to stop Van Patter from revealing the party's financial corruption. Later, he cited that experience as the catalyst for reassessing his views that took him from the political left to the political right."

    a former communist and former supporter of the Black panthers, a former leftist, a neocon and a kook.

    Yet Chomsky is somehow "dangerous".

    Pardon me while I point at you and laugh.

    David is the mirror image of Noam. Two very bright paranoid fucks whose weird rantings attract weak minds. :cuckoo:

    This one attracts me personally because I am tired of Noam's ego.

    Fact: Horowitz was a left wing extremist who became a right wing extremist. See any pattern here?:eusa_whistle:
