Chomsky Embraces Hezbollah

MIT professor and far left polemicist Noam Chomsky has embraced numerous violent and despotic radical movements and regimes over the years, including even the Khmer Rouge. Now, the Grand Old Man of anti-Americanism has found a new object for his affections: the Iranian-sponsored Lebanese terrorist organization Hezbollah.
MEMRI has the details, including quotes from Chomsky himself.

Hezbollah is second only to al-Qaeda among terrorist movements in terms of the number of Americans it has killed. It is openly anti-Semitic and anti-American, and its objective is an Islamic world subject to the Shia version of Islamist totalitarianism. If the US is forced to resort to military action to keep Iran from developing nuclear weapons, Hezbollah can be counted on to attack American interests at Tehran's behest. The organization is active right now in the United States.

That Chomsky would decide to support Hezbollah is yet further evidence of his moral and intellectual vacuity.

I believe one reason why ilk like Chomsky oppose the NSA policy isn't to protect civil liberties, rather, they don't want to be caught in bed with these Islamist terrorists.

Let's face it, if Chomsky did not make such outlandish statements, would we even know, or care, who he is? Would he be enjoying the large supplemental income that has come along with his bizare statements, if he had chosen a more "centrist" political positiona? Some people, academicians definitelyl included, will stop at nothing to achieve fame (infamy?) and fortune. Who knows, this chap could be a closet conservative, smiling all the way to the bank!
