Noam Chomsky's Rantings Behind Arizona 9/11 Memorial Blatherings?

Chomsky is a professor of linquistics at MIT, and not a cunning one at that. He made his name opposing the war in Vietnam and has been living off the reputation ever since.

He has no speciality in international affairs or Middle East politics, and if you can get through more than 20 pages of his writings without your eyes glazing over, it's a tremendous accomplishment. Yet, the Left reveres him, mostly based on that opposition to the Vietnam conflict.

Chomsky is a virulent anti-American, and sides with the enemies of the US time and time again. That he was considered source material for the memorial shows just how far off base the AZ memorial commission was.

It also shows that NYers were justified in making sure that the IFC and The Drawing Center was tossed from the Ground Zero rebuilding plans because they too were from the same well of anti-American thought.

Flopping Aces weighs in on the latest news about the Chomsky effect. He's not amused. Nor surprised.

Castro Burn in Hell (great name for a blog) points out the difference between a good memorial and a bad one. The Arizona memorial is a bad one. The good? It's the new USAF Memorial near Arlington National Cemetery, and would mean that every service now has a memorial of its own.

Blog o Fascists also comments. So does Liberalism is a Mental Disorder.
