"Chomsky is a man who has dedicated essentially his entire public life to political evil."

In one of his earliest books, he wrote that America requires a process of de-Nazification.
He has denied saying this, but again, it's right there in black and white. I think its impossible to understand Chomsky's politics without understanding that, to him, the US is morally equivalent to Nazi Germany and needs to be dealt with accordingly. It should be noted, by the way, that this was a very important aspect of post-war Stalinist propaganda, and I have no doubt that Chomsky adopted it from that rather dubious source. -- The Last Totalitarian | World Affairs Journal

Your Say

I still have bite marks on my steering wheel from a late night drive listening to an NPR interview with this chump going on about how the US is a failed state. At one time, he made a name for himself as a linguist. I wonder how his theories have held up over time. I don't recall them as being overtly stupid, but then I was a college student at the time.

There's no question that Chomsky is a modified Marxist. He's probably upset he never go this own nation to destroy with Chomskyism.

I personally heard Marvin Minski state that "his 'good friend' Chomsky's linguistic theories set back the advance of Artificial Intelligence (AI) development by 50 years."
