InterestsUS foreign policy
Publicly acclaimed critic of US foreign policy with an encylopaedic knowledge of history, Chomsky has become a gatekeeper by his refusal to contemplate false flag attacks.

Noam Chomsky is an eloquent and renowned critic of US foreign policy. He states that The United States is the Biggest Terrorist State in the World[1] but is a firm supporter of the the US government's official narrative of what happened on September 11, 2001. His failure to address the issue of false flag terror has led many to term him as a gatekeeper.

Opinions

Denial of Deep Politics

Noam Chomsky refuses to address the reality of deep politics. He has nothing to say about false flag attacks and other such deep events. He once exclaimed "Even if it were true [that 9/11 was an inside job], which is extremely unlikely, who cares? I mean, it doesn’t have any significance."[2][3] It is interesting that the foundation funded Democracy Now! repeatedly chooses Chomsky to interview about 9/11.[4]

Peace Award

In November 2017, the International Peace Bureau announced that Noam Chomsky had been awarded the MacBride Peace Prize "for his tireless commitment to peace, his strong critiques to US foreign policy, and his anti-imperialism."

Chomsky has been properly described as “a genuine people’s hero, an inspiration for struggles all over the world for that basic decency known as freedom”, as “one of the greatest and most radical public thinkers of our time”, “one of the most significant challengers of unjust power and delusions”, and as a ‘guru’ for the world’s anti-capitalist and anti-imperialist movement. In recent years, in addition to his continuing contributions to the fields of linguistics, philosophy and cognitive science, his critiques have focused on the US post-9-11War on Terror” which has provided cover for a continuation of US imperial policies, and the imperative of addressing the dangers posed by nuclear weapons and climate change.[6]

13 January 201228 April 2014The plaintiffs challenged the 2012 NDAA contending that indefinite detention on "suspicion of providing substantial support" to groups such as al-Qaeda and the Taliban was so vague as to allow unconstitutional, indefinite detention of civilians based on vague allegations. The Court of Appeals struck down an initial agreement, and the US Supreme Court concurred, arguing that the plaintiffs could not prove they would be affected by the law, so had no standing to contest it.

 

Quotes by Noam Chomsky

PageQuoteDateSource
Alan Dershowitz“... not only a remarkable liar and slanderer, but also an extreme opponent of elementary civil rights.”17 August 2006Noam Chomsky web site
FBI“According to its analysis of the documents in this FBI office, 1 percent were devoted to organized crime, mostly gambling; 30 percent were "manuals, routine forms, and similar procedural matter"; 40 percent were devoted to political surveillance and the like, including two cases involving right-wing groups, ten concerning immigrants, and over 200 on left or liberal groups. Another 14 percent of the documents concerned draft resistance and "leaving the military without government permission." The remainder concerned bank robberies, murder, rape, and interstate theft.”
Hypocrisy“let me formulate a thesis. The thesis is that we are all total hypocrites on any issue relating to terrorism. Now, let me clarify the notion "we." By "we," I mean people like us -- people who have enough high degree of privilege, of training, resources, access to information -- for whom it is pretty easy to find out the truth about things if we want to. If we decide that that is our vocation, and in the case in question, you don't really have to dig very deep, it's all right on the surface. So when I say "we," I mean that category. And I definitely mean to include myself in "we" because I have never proposed that our leaders be subjected to the kinds of punishment that I have recommended for enemies. So that is hypocrisy. So if there are people who escape it I really don't know them and have not come across them. It's a very powerful culture. It's hard to escape its grasp. So that's thesis number one, we are all total hypocrites, in the sense of the gospels, on the matter of terrorism. The second thesis is stronger, namely, that the first thesis is so obvious that it takes real effort to miss it. In fact, I should go home right now because it is obvious [...] Well, from all of this an obvious conclusion follows: there is an operational definition of terrorism, the one that is actually used -- it means terror that they carry out against us -- that's terrorism, and nothing else passes through the filter.”2002
