Re: Noam Chomsky -- leader of the idiocracy
Thank you for your letter.
Regarding the events of 9/11, I don't consider it "counter-productive" to knock on Chomsky's intellectual door -- if that's the door it is.
Listening to Comsky's own words on the subject of 9/11 (not someone's interpretation of his words, but his own words) is a heartsinking affair:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhrZ57XxYJU
My strong belief is that it's important to challenge Chomsky -- and anyone else -- who brushes aside the genesis of 9/11. If I have to call Chomsky the leader of an idiocracy to get him to do some d*mn research, then that's what I'll do. Because there are only two options: Either Chomsky has researched 9/11 and lied to us about his conclusions, or he hasn't done the research.
If one hasn't done the research on a subject, then one is intellectually bankrupt to brush aside competing theories on that subject. Brushing aside theories in an unresearched area is simply not the way an intellectual behaves. When asked a question on a subject he has not researched, an intellectual simply says, "I don't know." That can be his only answer. To say "It doesn't matter" is not just intellectually bankrupt but in this case grotesque.
Elias, I know your work and I respect your work. And your opinion on Chomsky is not going to keep me from going after him like he was the last man on earth -- which, as regards his opinion on 9/11, he may soon be:http://freedomisforeverybody.blogspot.com/2008/05/scientific-poll-84-reject-official-911.html
If Comsky were a true intellectual (as he purports to be), he would be open to 9/11 facts contrary to the official view. He would have no problem speaking with Kevin Barrett or anyone else in the intellectual community on the subject of 9/11. But Chomsky has mysteriously backed out of his interview with Kevin Barretthttp://forum.prisonplanet.com/index.php?topic=43112.0
. . . and he exhibits nothing but contempt for members of the 9/11 truth movement -- of which you are one.
By the way, when I said in my letter (reproduced below) that Chomsky has the same goals as the New World Order elite, I did not mean to suggest (and I did not say) that Chomsky is "working for" the New World Order elite. But having someone of the intellectual stature of Noam Chomsky echoing Bush's famous words ("Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories") can't exactly be doing the NWO agenda any harm. Of course, anyone who pays U.S. federal income taxes is *working for* the NWO, whether they know it or not
-- and I assume Chomsky pays his federal taxes like a good slave.
Remember, Chomsky believes that 19 Arabs with boxcutters pulled off the technologically sophisticated events of 9/11.

Response to Prison Planet article on Chomsky
By Elias Davidsson
At first I thought not even to respond to a message calling Chomsky the "leader of the idiocracy". Such name-calling is below any civilized standard. However, I was curious on what grounds the author of the article about Chomsky on Prison Planet, referred to below, arrives to such a conclusion. What I discovered is an article abounding in allegations, but poor in hard facts or even in direct quotations of Chomsky. The allegation that Chomsky is working for the New World Order and supports One World Government, is not substantiated. I have never come across any declaration, let alone efforts, by Chomsky to promote the NWO. The fact that many people adore him and follow his lead cannot be blamed on him. If people behave like sheep, it's their fault. To my knowledge Chomsky has not promoted himself more than any other scholar, and actually behaves more modestly than most of his critics. How many of personalities of his fame bother to answer emails of remote, unknown, correspondents?
I have been criticizing him for having failed to deal with the events of 9/11. As a 9/11 truther who has come to the conclusion that the US government most likely masterminded 9/11, I am fully aware of Chomsky's reluctance to deal with these events. I am not happy that he has not been willing to look at the evidence (or lack of). I told him so. However, I have no reason to read into his position any hidden agenda. Chomsky has at all times been a structuralist. A structuralist conception of society is based on the clash of classes, not on the personalities of individual politicians. This view that I consider too dogmatic, has led him to reject the political significance of conspiracies, such as 9/11 or the assassination of JFK. One may differ about the significance of certain conspiracies but this does not justify slandering him or allege that he plays a double game. In my opinion, some conspiracies by the ruling elite provide a rare insight in the mechanism by which the ruling elite works and a lever to expose the abyss between the ruling elite and the People.
It is ludicrous to conflate Chomsky with the promoters of the NWO, let alone with an imperialist agenda. Chomsky has spent years of his life to expose the crimes of US imperialism, in Indonesia, East Timor, Central America and elsewhere, long before most 9/11 truthers began to examine US foreign policies, or were even born. His critique of Israeli policies have alienated most US Jews from him. While it is alleged that he is a Zionist, such allegations are ludicrous. Here is, for example, an interview with him: http://www.chomsky.info/interviews/19970609.htm
, regarding the role of Israel as a Western colony. What Zionist would designate Shimon Peres, known in the West as an Israeli "moderate" as a war criminal? Chomsky has presented a compelling model of how corporate mass media operate (Manufacturing Consent). This model has been a template for many of us for years. His book about the history of the United States (Year 501), is a masterpiece about what has been suppressed in the US. With due respect to those eminent 9/11 truthers whose names appear on the website of Patriots for 9/11 Truth (http://patriotsquestion911.com/
), how many of these fine people have contributed anything approaching what Chomsky has done to expose US imperialism and US crimes around the world?
It is easy to criticize Chomsky for what he has not focussed on. Such critique is not fair. Chomsky is just one person. It is not an institution, let alone a government agency. He needs time to sleep, eat and relax. He cannot do everything. Much of what he DID has been excellent research. Let us give him credit for that and go on with our own work in researching issues that he did not research. There is enough to do for everybody.
While I am truly frustrated that Chomsky does not support the 9/11 truth movement, I consider it counter-productive to keep harping on Chomsky's failures, as if he were the US government. As a person interested in exposing 9/11 and other suspected "false flag" events, and as one interested to know more about the role of financial capital (including the Federal Reserve system and the international banking system) in determining global policies, I believe that I can engage in such research without having to denigrate others, such as Noam Chomsky.
Last, but not least, according to civilized morals, a person is deemed innocent unless proven guilty. This principle applies equally to Prof. Noam Chomsky, who must be regarded as innocent of the allegations made in the article, unless compelling evidence is presented to the contrary.
