Rumors of Chomsky’s death are greatly exaggerated
Posted by: McQ on Friday, September 22, 2006

And all this time Hugo thought he was shilling for a dead guy as he waved Chomsky's book around:
At a news conference after his spirited address to the United Nations on Wednesday, President Hugo Chávez of Venezuela expressed one regret: not having met that icon of the American left, the linguist Noam Chomsky, before his death.
Heh ... Chomsky, reached at his Lexington, Mass. home said that he was still kicking ... working and writing.

A very fitting end to Hugo's trip to the big city, wouldn't you say?

UPDATE: So which is it: Chomsky or Gailbraith? According to Reuters, he lamented not being able to meet Gailbraith before he died:
The dark-skinned, mixed race leader told New Yorkers to read Abraham Lincoln and Mark Twain as well as modern thinkers like Noam Chomsky and John Kenneth Galbraith, lamenting he could not meet Galbraith before he died in April at age 97.
What's with the "dark-skinned, mixed race leader" bit?

And, of course, touting Gailbraith says a lot about Chavez's economic acumen (not to mention Chomsky and politics). It's the 1970s all over again. Well at least it will beat Fidel's Cuba, perpetually trapped in the '50s.

Why do dictators always find justification in certain peoples works? People like Chomsky, Gailbraith, and Marx. Makes you wonder doesn’t it? (Not saying I don’t know why. Just not feeling like writing the obvious.)

Don’t be naive...You darn well know what it is, it’s liberal code words for:

1) Establishing his credibility and status, since race is all that matters to them

2) Establishing that if you disagree with him, it’s probably because you’re a racist

Chomsky is not only brilliant...he’s brave and independent.

Have you read any of his "fact-based" books and analysis?

Instead of drinking the Kool Aid and throwing around spin sound bites why not dialogue on what he’s written and why you disagree?

What a profound thought....an actual dialogue...

Buzz...Buzz....

How very appropriate that you put quotes around fact-based. Because Chomsky is a well-known liar. A man who shills for Pol Pot and Mao has at best a tenuous grip on reality.

Here’s some reading material:

Chomsky Watch
The Top 100 Lies of Chomsky
The hypocrisy of Noam Chomsky

That ought to keep you busy for a while.
