The Anger of Noam Chomsky: Part II

Chomsky is an angry man. He is so consumed by his anger and spite that anyone who has an opinion that runs contrary to his view is automatically branded as a Fascist Neo-Nazi hatemonger. With a wave of the hand all America's are engage in anti-Arab bigotry, "a lot of racism here [in America], it was assumed [the reason Sadat lost the Yom Kippur War was] that Arabs didn't know which end of the gun to hold and that sort of thing". Anyone who disagrees with his position on divestment is acting like a Stalinist, "Even if the petition had singled out Israel ... it would be an absurdity reminiscent of the worst days of Stalinism to call that anti-Semitic". The United States of America during the Cold War was essentially, "picking up where the Nazis had left off". Maybe someone forgot to tell Chomsky the Nazis were slaughtering Jews by the millions or maybe that doesn't really matter to him. Chomsky calls everyone he disagrees with Nazis or Stalinists. He has an unflinching hatred for those that disagree with him.

Besides Chomsky's abuse of the analogy of Stalinism and Nazism as his only mode of attacking those he disagrees with, Chomksy has the nerve (or the chutzpah if you please) to claim Israel uses the memory of Nazi aggression against the Jews, the Holocaust, to further its political agenda. Chomsky states, "[The Holocaust is] quite certainly real, there's no question about that, but it is also undoubted that [Israelis] manipulate [the Holocaust]." As evidence Chomsky cites the following incident,

[I]n the Jerusalem Post, in English so you can read it, their Washington correspondent Wolf Blitzer, I don't recall the exact date, but after one of the big Holocaust memorial meetings in Washington he wrote an article in the Jerusalem Post in which he said it was a great success. He said, "Nobody mentioned arms sales to the Arabs but all the Congressmen understood that that was the hidden message. So we got it across."
Apparently 'nobody mentioning arms sales' is a big deal to Chomsky and that implies some sort of abuse of the Holocaust. Ironically enough Chomsky seems to forget another big arms deal. This one however involved the USSR and Egypt at a time when Egypt supposedly offering a peace settlement to Israel. In the above article Chomsky mentions "Egypt offered a full peace treaty to Israel," yet he neglects to mention that an arms sale between Egypt and the USSR was being conducted. So I guess all the Chomskytes understood the hidden message - arms sales are important only if they involve certain groups, others are apparently excused.

Leaving Chomsky's blatant hypocrisy one should note how he proceeds label all those he hates as Nazi's but never acknowledges those who are or have collaborated with Nazis during the Holocaust. Take for example the 'Grand' Mufti of Jerusalem during the period of the British Mandate. The Mufti was a rapid supporter of Adolph Hitler. In fact they had a meeting with each other, and the Mufti sent a letter to other European nations encourgeing them to join the Nazi program. In addition the Mufti was a 'personal friend' of Eichmann.

But if you read only the maertial by Chomsky on the Arab Israeli Conflict you would know none of this. Chomsky's tome on the Arab Israeli dispute, The Faithful Triangle makes no mention of the Mufti at all. A simple search on the official web page of Noam Chomsky where dozens of his articles and books are published results in zero hits for the word 'mufti'. However, on the converse the word 'Nazi' returns a total of 81 hits and the The Faithful Triangle makes references to Nazism numerous times. A brief survey of every utterance Chomsky makes about Nazism shows that it is in reference to how Israel, Zionism or America are Nazi like.

Chomsky is an angry man. He believes the whole world is comprised of Nazi like people, just because they disagree with him. On top off that these people abuse the history of Nazism to further their own political agenda. If Chomsky bothered to read his own statements from time to time he might notice how his own contempt for others who disagree with him has led him to abuse the past and made his own comments about others dip into the realm of 'sacrilege'.

Was going to post a longer reply but I'm beginning to realise that arguing with a man who thinks France is in Eastern Europe is, well, pointless...

But hey, why bother with details if you can mention 'the Nazis were slaughtering Jews by the millions'.

If you would please note the time, it was 1:05AM. I was thinking in their struggle against the USSR, and it became in Eastern Europe. Sorry for the slip up, I will make the changes.

Dhimmi,

I see from the other thread you have blocked me from posting there. I find it odd you attack a free speech radical like Chomsky for allegedly not supporting free speech, when in fact he does, yet not allow free speech on your own blog. Could your criticism of Chomsky be a case of projection? As far as I am concerned you and your blog have lost all credibility with me and I will no longer participate here.

JC,

Haven't we already discussed this? Maybe you’re a bit delusional. I told you that which everyone you want me to open I will. However, that does not mean I am not going to sit here and open them all, I have better things to do with my time. How many times do I have to say this? Just a tought: I always could say I won’t let you comment until Chomsky lets me do it on his blog, but I won't.

This is a completely different issue as you well know. I was posting on a thread that was open, then it was closed in the middle of a discussion. I was cut off. Is this a place of free speech or not?

No, I did not do anything; maybe there was a problem with blogger. Why are you guys so antsy?

If it wasn't you I apologize. I just found it strange I could post in this thread and not the other. As you can see from the other thread there are 3 identical posts I made because they wouldn't go through. It acted like it had either been closed or the posts were on hold.

Dhimmy,

still doesn't work. The "picking up where the Nazis had left off" quote refers specifically to France and the "Butcher of Lyon" Klaus Barbie whose "skills were badly needed....His activities had been directed against the underground French Communist party and the resistance,". Chomsky:Although he was responsible for many hideous crimes, the US Army put him in charge of spying on the French.
[Watched a great documentary on some German TV station about this; it would be interesting if it were not so gruesome]

So he is not talking about "picking up where the Nazis had left off" with the Jew slaughter but with the "suppressing the antifascist resistance" as Chomsky clearly states.

Selective quoting again.

I'll reply to the rest when I come back from a (another) brief vacation.

And when you make changes to the original text, please post a note doing so (not everybody looks at comments).

Let me quote the Professor:

"Presumably, Americanism as an ideology represents the crushing of internal dissent in order to propagate an oil war masquerading as an endless crusade against "terrorism." Perhaps for the first time since the late 1940s, Bush’s argument for war can be seen in the light of the apparent fabrications which lead to the police state which has come to pass. Nevertheless, the influence of Leo Strauss can be regarded as the slaughter of thousands of children by Air Force cluster bombs. It is not heartening that the pro-Sharon neoconservative cabal brings forth the end of any possibility of social justice in a reactionary state."

I have a bit of kleenex that Chomsky sneezed into. I pray to it every night. These fascists here might deny it, but the kleenex has granted me good fortune. Truly HE is our Lord and Savior. Hail Chomsky!

Actually I see a lot more "Chomskyification" at FreeRepublic.com and Bill O'Reilly's show, but since Chomsky is evil incarnate (in your view), he must be the source of American political hatred.
