The propaganda that Horowitz repeats in that article; that anyone that questions the US government's foreign policy is basically considered to be 'anti-American', or 'in support of terrorism'.

I think that Horowitz' article is more "intellectually bankrupt, and dishonest". His article reeks of multiple examples of faulty black and white thinking: "rallies against America’s right to defend herself", "wherever young people manifest an otherwise incomprehensible rage against their country", "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)". It contains a ton of hyperbole, such as to say that the atrocities committed by the US were "intended to present [it] as the devil incarnate", and as "a worthy target of attack for the guerilla forces of “social justice” all over the world".

I'm not all that big into Chomsky, as I've never really read much of his work, and that I'm not really aligned so much with the Left; but this article is just a terrible diatribe.

Well, Chomsky himself is even worse. Horowitz is the antidote.

That's what I did already, which is why I responded to it.

Great article. Chomsky really is a lowlife. I've personally corresponded with the man and I can tell you he's a narcissist. He's a textbook high functioning psychopath.

Hah hah hah...what a moron you are...

I have long wondered why leftists and liberals are always wearing the smug look, that smirk...as if they know everything...it makes me sick!

By the way, look at what bin Laden had on his bookshelf:

Necessary Illusions: Thought Control in Democratic Societies by Noam Chomsky.

Avram Noam Chomsky (/ˈnoʊm ˈtʃɒmski/; born December 7, 1928) is an American linguist, philosopher, cognitive scientist, logician, political commentator, social justice activist, and anarcho-syndicalist advocate.

Sometimes described as the "father of modern linguistics", Chomsky is also a major figure in analytic philosophy. He has spent most of his career at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where he is currently Professor Emeritus, and has authored over 100 books.

He has been described as a prominent cultural figure, and was voted the "world's top public intellectual" in a 2005 poll.

Born to a middle-class Ashkenazi Jewish family in Philadelphia, Chomsky developed an early interest in anarchism from relatives in New York City. He later undertook studies in linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania, where he obtained his BA, MA, and PhD, while from 1951 to 1955 he was appointed to Harvard University's Society of Fellows.

In 1955 he began work at MIT, soon becoming a significant figure in the field of linguistics for his publications and lectures on the subject. He is credited as the creator or co-creator of the Chomsky hierarchy, the universal grammar theory, the Chomsky–Schützenberger representation theorem, and the Chomsky–Schützenberger enumeration theorem. Chomsky also played a major role in the decline of behaviorism, and was especially critical of the work of B.F. Skinner. In 1967 he gained public attention for his vocal opposition to U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War, in part through his essay

The Responsibility of Intellectuals, and came to be associated with the New Left while being arrested on multiple occasions for his anti-war activism. While expanding his work in linguistics over subsequent decades, he also developed the propaganda model of media criticism with Edward S. Herman. Following his retirement from active teaching, he has continued his vocal public activism, for instance supporting the anti-Iraq War and Occupy movements.

Chomsky has been a highly influential academic figure throughout his career, and was cited within the field of Arts and Humanities more often than any other living scholar between 1980 and 1992.

He was also the eighth most cited scholar overall within the Arts and Humanities Citation Index during the same period. His work has influenced fields such as artificial intelligence, cognitive science, computer science, logic, mathematics, music theory and analysis, political science, programming language theory and psychology. Chomsky continues to be well known as a political activist, and a leading critic of U.S. foreign policy, neoliberal capitalism, and the mainstream news media. Ideologically, he aligns himself with anarcho-syndicalism and libertarian socialism.

Listening to Chomsky, you can almost feel the justice of Osama bin Laden’s strike on the World Trade Center.
There is the problem in a nutshell, this is how the right thinks. Words to them are an call to action. Whereas the left just thinks 'words' are the opinion of the writer.

Also, this article condemns Chomsky for telling the truth? Really? LMFAO!

Ahhh..the right...idiots the lot of them!

But here's the problem I see...are you against him because the people you like (conservatives) are against him, or is it because you know for a fact he is a liar?

I have a hunch, you don't like him because your 'camp' doesn't like him. Ask Imp if he still likes George W. Bush, for example.

It's hard to say with conservatives, you all tend to rally around someone until they become an embarrassment and then you all distance yourselves. The trouble is, you all have a tendency to deny that little fact. It just makes it very difficult to take ya'all seriously. So much like children...
