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.
