Know Who Really Doesn’t Deserve A Peace Prize? Noam Freaking Chomsky
Noam Chomsky hates America just as much as Osama Bin Laden did, he works just as tirelessly as Bin Laden ever did to harm the country, but he doesn’t kill people. Instead, Chomsky pushes vacuous real-time, historical hate fiction that convinces people to despise America. Giving him a peace prize for that is like giving John Walker Lindh a Medal of Honor.
Chomsky is in the news because of the announcement that he is to be the recipient of the 2011 Sydney Peace Prize. A closer look reveals the professor unworthy of such an honour.
Any serious student who delves into Chomsky’s written work will discover a sordid underside of moral depravity and intellectual dishonesty. This taint is particularly noxious on the issue of genocide.
The record shows Chomsky spent the latter 1970s attempting to whitewash the mass murder then under way at the hands of the communist Khmer Rouge in Cambodia.
…This gives rise to why the Sydney Peace Foundation selected such a morally tainted individual for their 2011 Peace Prize.
A compelling clue is provided by Chomsky’s recent essay on the SEAL raid that killed Osama bin Laden. In this article Chomsky dances perilously close to outright 9/11 denialism, casting sarcastic doubts on bin Laden’s own claims of responsibility. He then goes on to declare that even if al-Qaeda did perpetrate the September 2001 attack, the crimes of George Bush “uncontroversially exceed bin Laden’s”.
Bin Laden’s followers are ignorant, splodey-dope goat herders. Chomsky’s followers are America-hating, faux intellectual cretins who fancy themselves as sophisticated. It’s a different flavor of hate. Nothing more and nothing less.
A British news site reports that elderly pensioners have taken to burning books for warmth during the brutal English winter, in a story that ties together not just Ray Bradbury’s “Fahrenheit 451″, but multiple chapters of Jonah Goldberg’s best-selling “Liberal Fascism”, which celebrates its second year in print this month, and more timely than ever…
If there’s a theme that ties this week’s events together, it’s to assume that all mics are hot, all emails risk becoming public, and all information captured by journalists no matter how off the record will eventually escape, whether your last name is McChrystal or Weigel, or you’re covering a Sarah Palin speech for a local Fox affiliate
