Noam Chomsky: Sarah Palin Was Right About Obama (video)
The Blaze ^ | May 15, 2012 | Mytheos Holt

Posted on 05/15/2012 2:40:02 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Probably the last person you’d expect to cite Sarah Palin favorably is Noam Chomsky. Yet in an interview with the Leftist news organization Democracy Now, Chomsky did precisely that, saying Palin was right to mock Obama for his lack of substance.

“I don’t usually admire Sarah Palin,” Chomsky said, “but when she was making fun of this ‘hopey changey stuff,’ she was right, there was nothing there.”

The kindest thing I can say about the political pronouncements of Nome Chomsky is that, by all accounts, he is a first rate linguist.

Even the uber-lefties know Homobama is an empty suit. They thought he would have installed full blown communism by now.

Exactly!

There is NO flying pig here.

This is just the left doing what they do - trying their best to keep transforming as much as possible under the radar. Saul Alinsky is involved here w/ what Chompsky is saying. Zer0 has REALLY damaged the USA... when (or if) he leaves or is gotten rid of, we will be 5+ TRILLION more in debt, many times that more in TRILLIONS with more unfunded liabilities on our kids, grandkids, and unborn. WHole industries nationalized, GM/Chrysler/Student loans, and the whole health care mess - making the problem for which the left has the answer.

In the epicenter of Hope and Change (NYC), people now complain openly about how his visits to the city temporarily ruin our daily lives. New Yorkers are sick and tired of Hope and Change - it doesn't matter what anyone tells you. If you live here, you can feel it.

If he looks at other things he will find Our Mrs. Palin has been been right about a lot of subjects besides the weakness of Mr. Obama.

No, not a trick, more probably just frustration in the fact that Obama refused to stand up for what he believed, post modern relativism and Noam Chomsky newspeak. Hope and Change are just so traditional.

No, Chomsky is just so far to the left he considers Obama a centrist. He’s disapointed the Peoples Dictatorship has not yet been established.

Pretty funny stuff. Basically he says Obama ran a great marketing campaign in 2008 but that Palin was right in that there was “nothing there”. As Rush always says, “symbolism over substance”. Obama is an empty vessel.

Read the comments! 95% Pro Palin, and most slamming the main stream media. If I was working in that studio I would start putting out resumes cause the man on the street HATES them on their own website!

What the heck is going on out there, cause what we are being told does NOT match what glimmers we manage to see.

Chomsky also just loves to pull people's chains, and it must be an unbearable temptation to invoke Palin when the mere name makes veins bulge in academic foreheads.

I did it myself the other day. Someone asked me about politics and I just sighed and said "Well, I guess I'll just vote for whoever Sarah Palin tells me to." Couldn't have done any better with a live hand grenade...

“I don’t usually admire Sarah Palin,” Chomsky said, “but when she was making fun of this ‘hopey changey stuff,’ she was right, there was nothing there.”

Smoke n' mirrors. The commie left knows Obama is on the path of destroying America. They may not be completely satisfied (yet), but they know he's by far the best thing that has come along for them and the movement which he embraces more than many of them.

Try living in DC! It’s always been the case that a visiting POTUS disrupts city life .. NYers are just getting around to objecting NOW? They’ll kvetch all they will, but when November rolls around, they will robotically vote for him. Regrettably.

“Caroline Kennedy can’t stand to hear Zero’s voice, now considers him just a “liar and worse”.”

I hadn’t heard that. Remember so well the day she and Uncle Ted came out amid great fanfare in support of BHO and her speaking of his being THE inspiration of this generation, as her sainted father was for the preceding generation.

Well, linguistics is probably not your area of expertise and it is what simply everyone says about him. But I can tell you that many, many of us believe that his linguistic theories are just as idiotic as his politics.
