Skip to comments.Chomsky: Obama ‘Determined To Demolish The Foundations Of Our Civil Liberties’
Posted on 06/06/2014 11:53:31 PM PDT by grundle
Progressive hero Noam Chomsky is terrified of the surveillance state that has developed during the tenure of President Barack Obama, calling it a grave threat to our fundamental civil liberties.
In a column published Monday, Chomsky writes that the documents revealed to the public by Edward Snowden show a system that is flagrantly violating the principles of the Constitution.
It is of no slight import that the project is being executed in one of the freest countries in the world, and in radical violation of the U.S. Constitutions Bill of Rights, which protects citizens from unreasonable searches and seizures, and guarantees the privacy of their persons, houses, papers and effects, Chomsky said.
Much as government lawyers may try, there is no way to reconcile these principles with the assault on the population revealed in the Snowden documents.

What’s he complaining about?
He’s got the President he’s always wanted.
Maybe he is finally waking up.
Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!
He finally grew a brain?
“Maybe he is finally waking up.”
Don’t count on it. He is just using some reverse psychology.
Actually George Orwell did envision it all and its totality. Orwell did not know computer mining of data. Orwell did know the totalitarian state.
>> He finally grew a brain?
I’m thinking attention whore.
Love how these commie pukes are suddenly acting horrified about their commie puke president.
Noam should be on the lookout for roaming death panels.
Wow, Chomsky, hypocrite much?
FIFTY YEARS you’ve been pushing socialism while decrying big brother, as if the two were different, you freaking million IQ brainiac FOOL.
Now you’re afraid? NOW? You helped MAKE Obama, with every ounce of energy and opportunity and influence you had in your entire life!
Go to hell, you bastard.
I want to be shocked by his sudden epiphany, but I’m too cynical.
I’m thinking that the left is starting to position itself as if it was they that warned America about Obama and the right got him into office somehow.
Interesting point. Obama claims to be like Lincoln and Reagan, so maybe you’re onto something.
Government can’t play its role of god without omniscience.
Don’t blame it on Obama Norm. The American left has always been about our return to serfdom.
When you have lost Chomsky.......
There are progressives and there are Progressives it seems. Chomsky has made a good living saying Socialist and even sometimes libertarian things. I think he likes to think of himself as a Free Thinker. Like Orwell he is able to understand Communist like tyrannical behavior when he sees it and extrapolate it to it’s ultimate end. Like Orwell too he is unable to see that his own thinking, no matter how well intentioned, ultimately leads to this sort of behavior as there are a good proportion of the population who want to be free - who don’t want to kiss the ring on the hand of their masters no matter how benevolent. These people are a major inconvenience to the State and must be watched and silenced.
