UPDATE: (H/T Greg) Alex Jones has gone full fascist with his reply to this ridiculous statement from Chomsky. Not only does he support the notion of “crazed Muslim terrorists’ committing acts of terror here in the states but he then goes so far as to try to link “the left” with the “Islamofascists”
“The real false flag is opening Europe up to Islamic invaders and then using that crisis to revoke the liberties and freedoms of the people in those nations who are fighting for their very survival. The real false flag is allowing thousands of unvetted Islamist “refugees” into the United States with the same aim – to merge the left with Islamofascism.” Di$info Jone$
Benjamin Netanyahu could not have said it better.
Personally I have gone back and forth on Noam Chomsky’s stance on false flags in the past. It’s not like he doesn’t know of their existence and the long history of the use of such tactics in the past, but he’s been very critical of individuals like myself who raise serious questions about the official story of 9/11 and the events that led up to it. Which is the purpose of a controlled opposition asset like Chomsky.
I don’t hold people to some litmus test like others do. Chomsky had a very long career of activism spanning decades before 9/11 and was one of the first pro-Palestinian activists in this country to take a public stand against the apartheid state of Israel. He has been a staunch anti-empire/ anti-war activist, researcher and writer since before I was born and he stood up to the globalization movement before it had a name and long before most current activist’s parents were born.
All that said, I have recently been very disappointed in his behavior. This is my disclaimer I guess.
- Wow. Wanna See Noam Chomsky Lie About Syria and Assad? (shades of his support of the Yugoslavia regime change operation)
- Fuck Noam Chomsky: The Sellout is Helping Push for Regime Change in Turkey for Israel’s Greater Kurdistan Project
- Sam Harris and Noam Chomsky’s “My Snake Oil is Better than Yours” Debate
- Noam Chomsky Jumps on Board the Turkish Regime Change Bandwagon – Next Stop, Greater Kurdistan
As you can tell, my objections to Chomsky’s actions are primarily based on his tacit support of current or previous regime change operations. I didn’t really apply a litmus test to the man after he dismissed legitimate questions and research from the Truth community about 9/11 which show, in my opinion, that 9/11 was the ultimate false flag.
And even though I don’t suggest that every activist must share my conclusions about 9/11 before I consider them to be authentic, I did take exception to Chomsky’s categorization of those of us who question what happened that day and his overly simplistic dismissal of the mountains of evidence collected by various researchers over the years.
- Chomsky’s Hypocrisy Knows No Limits: Tweets About “voluntary propaganda of the intellectual class”
- Noam Chomsky’s 9/11 “Truther” Debunking Debunked: Yes Noam, They Were Lunatics
Seven years ago I reminded Noam and his detractors that he hasn’t always had such an opinion on 9/11 and in fact, it may have changed altogether.
- Chomsky: No Evidence That Al Qaeda or bin Laden Carried Out 9/11 Attack
- Noam Chomsky: “The U.S. and Its Allies Will Do Anything to Prevent Democracy in the Arab World”
So Noam hasn’t always been what he is now: a shadow of his former self. And perhaps I give him too much credit for the man he once was like a football fan backing his team’s aging star quarterback long after father time has rendered his unavoidable verdict.
That said, yesterday Alternet reported on an interview they did with Chomsky in which he said Trump might stage a false flag because his popularity rating is going down. Of all the ridiculous regime change backing crap I have heard from Chomsky over the years, this one takes the cake… and unfortunately it’s our country he’s helping destabilize.
“I think that sooner or later the white working-class constituency will recognize, and in fact, much of the rural population will come to recognize, that the promises are built on sand. There is nothing there.
And then what happens becomes significant. In order to maintain his popularity, the Trump administration will have to try to find some means of rallying the support and changing the discourse from the policies that they are carrying out, which are basically a wrecking ball to something else. Maybe scapegoating, saying, “Well, I’m sorry, I can’t bring your jobs back because these bad people are preventing it.” And the typical scapegoating goes to vulnerable people: immigrants, terrorists, Muslims and elitists, whoever it may be. And that can turn out to be very ugly.
I think that we shouldn’t put aside the possibility that there would be some kind of staged or alleged terrorist act, which can change the country instantly.” Noam Chomsky
As much as I have come to dislike Noam Chomsky due his irresponsible tacit support of various regime change operations of the past decade or so, I believe this state of his is perhaps the most unbelievably duplicitous support he has ever given one.
Yes, the deep state (which contacts MIT, Noam’s employer, to the tune of tens of millions of dollars every year) is running a regime change op against Donald Trump. Running one of their standard hearts and minds operations right here in America because Donald Trump doesn’t share entirely their hegemonic world view.
And Noam’s suggestion that The Donald (as much as I dislike him and his reactionary neoliberal policies) might set off a false flag because he’s feeling unpopular plays right into their demonization campaign which is eerily similar to the ones they are running against Erdogan, Assad and Putin at the moment.
Frighteningly enough, its the deep state that runs false flag ops and Noam’s suggestion that if one is carried out here in the states (again) then it’s Trump that did it, sets the real perps up with a rather convenient scape-goat or patsy, now doesn’t it?
What is especially retarded for a deep thinker like Chomsky is the fact that he says it will be Trump’s ego after all that triggers the event.
Trump couldn’t care less what his base thinks of him because he doesn’t give a crap about them. He is there to help bring about the transition of this country into something else and as long as he holds his little rallies and keeps support of something like 30% of the population, he’s just fine with that. If he leaves office in 4 years like he is sure to do, his efforts will earn him a special place in the annals of those who really run this country.
As one might expect, Noam’s statement is making the rounds of the fake left thought leaders putting in their minds the notion that evil Trump could light a match if things go to bad for him which is patently ridiculous. Especially when you consider it would have to be the agents of the deep state that carry it out like they did on Sept. 11th, 2001. And if he tried to pull one off by himself, he is CERTAIN they will expose it and him immediately.
What a transparent contrivance from Mr. Chomsky, a man who once said Cheney and his neocon “crazies” didn’t do 9/11 even after calling for a “New Pearl Harbor type event” a year before because… they would have to be crazy to do so.
So I guess we can assume Noam thinks The Donald is crazy while folks like Rumsfeld and Cheney were not? That’s a rather Pollyanna view of the deep state if you ask me and one I doubt Chomsky is naive enough to believe.
Looks like Noam is back to his old tricks, backing regime change ops by helping demonize unwanted leaders of countries that “voted the wrong way”
Unfortunately, he’s working on ours these days.
Please help keep AE up and running if you can.
