  • Anti-globalization movement joins Jihadis vs McWorld

    Jihad vs. McWorld is the name of a March, 1992 essay and a 1996 book published by Benjamin Barber. Barber, a social democratic “third-roader”, argues that both tribal warfare “jihad”, and what he sees as the “threat” of globalism, equally endanger democracy in the post-cold war world. Now, nearly a decade and a half after Barber’s essay appeared in Atlantic Monthly, it appears that leading anti-globalization activists worldwide have stopped equivocating and decided that globalism is the greater threat. They have teamed up with jihad. Unlike visits to 1980s Sandinista Nicaragua, in-person displays of “solidarity” with Islamists are problematic. As...

    One of the most persistent themes in Noam Chomsky’s work has been class warfare. He has frequently lashed out against the “massive use of tax havens to shift the burden to the general population and away from the rich” and criticized the concentration of wealth in “trusts” by the wealthiest 1 percent. The American tax code is rigged with “complicated devices for ensuring that the poor—like 80 percent of the population—pay off the rich.” But trusts can’t be all bad. After all, Chomsky, with a net worth north of $2,000,000, decided to create one for himself. A few years back...

    CARACAS: If he ever tires of running Venezuela, Hugo Chavez would make an outstanding book club president, judging by his impact on Noam Chomsky’s book sales. Since waving a copy during an address to the UN last week, the Venezuelan president has made Hegemony or Survival: America’s Quest for Global Dominance a publishing sensation. What was one of Professor Chomsky’s lesser known works has surged to No 1 on Amazon’s bestseller list, with bookshops making bulk orders from the thousands of extra copies being printed. The Massachusetts-based commentator’s 301-page critique of US foreign policy, first published in 2003, is an...

    Noam Chomsky's popularity owes little or nothing to the eminent place that he occupies in the world of ideas. That place was won many years ago in the science of linguistics, and no expert in the subject would, I think, dispute Prof. Chomsky's title to it.He swept away at a stroke the attempts of Ferdinand de Saussure and his followers to identify meaning through the surface structure of signs, as well as the belief, once prevalent among animal ethologists, that language could be acquired by making piecemeal connections between symbols and things. He argued that language is an all-or-nothing affair,...

    Everyone knows Noam Chomsky is a leftist as far as US defence/foreign policies are concerned, and also on economic system and social welfare. Does anyone know any sources about where Noam Chomsky stands on these social issues: 1. gay marriage 2. pornography 3. abortions;? There are some Asian Christian friends I know who believe that Noam Chomsky is conservative on these areas (and they literally worship him because he is a "pacifist" and a socialist economically). But I'm sceptical as far as these are concerned since I know US leftists tend to be straight A lefties on all counts. If...

    At a news conference after his spirited address to the United Nations on Wednesday, President Hugo Chávez of Venezuela expressed one regret: not having met that icon of the American left, the linguist Noam Chomsky, before his death. Yesterday, a call to Mr. Chomsky’s house found him very much alive. In fact, he was struggling through “10,000 e-mails” he had received since the remarks by Mr. Chávez, who urged Americans to read one of Mr. Chomsky’s books instead of watching Superman and Batman movies, which he said “make people stupid.” At 77, Mr. Chomsky has joined the exclusive club of...

    No one is more bewildered and, frankly, bummed by all of the attention suddenly being paid to Noam Chomsky than Andrew Bacevich. "I've written a few books critical of US foreign policy, too," said Bacevich, a professor of history and international relations at Boston University. "Why couldn't Hugo Chavez hold up one of my books?" Why, indeed. Thanks to the Venezuelan president's surprise endorsement of "Hegemony or Survival: America's Quest for Global Dominance” during a vitriolic address at the United Nations, the paperback edition of Chomsky's 2003 book has catapulted to No.1 on's list of best-sellers, ahead of such...

    George Bush owes Hugo Chavez a thank-you note. The Venezuelan president's goofy performance at the U.N. General Assembly on Wednesday made Bush look like Winston Churchill. Waving a Noam Chomsky book about America's quest for global dominance, Chavez railed against Bush: ``Yesterday the devil came here,'' he said, referring to Bush's address to the U.N. ``Right here. Right here. And it smells of sulfur still today, this table that I am now standing in front of.'' Then he made the sign of the cross, looked heavenward and put his hands together as if to pray. I think we can fairly...

    IF NOTHING ELSE CAME OUT OF YESTERDAY’S SPEECH AT THE UN, we now know what is on Venezuelan proto-fascist Hugo Chavez’s reading table. “Noam Chomsky, and this is one of his most recent books, Hegemony or Survival: The Imperialist Strategy of the United States,” he said, hoisting the tome aloft at the podium. “I will just leave it as a recommendation.” His Chomsky citation merely proves what we have been saying at FrontPage Magazine for years: there is an Unholy Alliance of American leftists and anti-Americans worldwide – and the influence runs both ways. Thus, Chavez and Chomsky made mutual...

    Liberal Air America radio host Mike Malloy had his show abruptly “terminated” on Wednesday, allegedly for financial reasons. The network is failing but there could be another factor behind the Malloy debacle. There is still fallout from Malloy’s recent decision to turn over two-and-a-half hours of his three hour show to a former associate of ex-con Lyndon LaRouche, a perennial candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination who campaigns against what he views as British and Zionist control of the U.S. political system. The LaRouche organization is frequently labeled as a cult. The former high-level LaRouche associate, Webster Griffin Tarpley, was...

    "If they [Jews] all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide." – Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, Hizbullah commander "I say this without fear: for those who believe in freedom and dignity, we are all Hizbullah now." – Norman Finkelstein, Jewish anti-Zionist That any human being could proclaim his support for a movement whose goal is to annihilate all the world's Jews must be shocking to the normal observer. That a Jew could take this position seems all the more astounding. Yet Norman Finkelstein, university professor and best-selling author, is by no means unique among...

    American support for Israel's unwinnable aim of destroying Hizbullah only boosts its support in Lebanon and beyond Noam Chomsky Friday September 1, 2006 The Guardian In Lebanon, a little-honoured truce remains in effect - yet another in a decades-long series of ceasefires between Israel and its adversaries in a cycle that, as if inevitably, returns to warfare, carnage and human misery. Let's describe the current crisis for what it is: a US-Israeli invasion of Lebanon, with only a cynical pretence to legitimacy. Amid all the charges and counter-charges, the most immediate factor behind the assault is the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

    Liberal/Progressive Talking Points 1960 to Present By Jenni Vinson Trejo July 28, 2006 It might seem a daunting task to catalogue anything over a span that encompasses six decades, but Liberals have made it easy since not much has changed in their Agenda and Talking Points over the past six decades. The only major change we’ve seen from them is that they used to be just Liberals and now they want to add Progressive to their title This era of Liberal/Progressiveness began as a counter culture revolution to the Vietnam War. The younger generation, unwilling to fight and possibly die...

    World-renowned intellectuals publish open letter to make it clear that world is not ignoring what is happening in the Middle East. Surprisingly, it's us they blame When the war began in northern Israel and the Gaza operation was expanded, Palestinian director and actor Juilano Mar Hamis sent out an e-mail asking who would paint the “Guernica” of Lebanon. Pablo Picasso’s “Guernica,” which shows the results of the Nazi bombing of Guernica in Spain, is still considered a symbol of the destruction and devastation that war leaves in its wake. According to Mar Hamis, his e-mail was intended to awaken the...

    America’s most loony left-wing wacko, Noam Chomsky, says that Hamas' program of murder and mayhem is preferable to the policies promoted by the U.S. and Israel. "Hamas is more forthcoming and more dedicated to a final solution of the conflict than the United States or Israel," said Chomsky. "The U.S. and Israel are attempting to force a peaceful co-existence on the Muslims. This merely strings out the conflict. Hamas' plan to murder all the Jews would remove one side of the conflict and, thereby, end it." "Hamas' anti-Semitism is closer to the international consensus than the U.S.'s idiosyncratic support for...

    Tzvi Fleischer, in The Review, on left-wing radical Noam Chomsky's camaraderie with terror group Hezbollah FOR anyone who doubts that there is a growing international alliance between the far Left and radical Islamists (the "red-green" alliance), leftist icon Noam Chomsky has provided categorical proof. He has just given a great big bear-hug to Hezbollah. Chomsky travelled to southern Lebanon in mid-May and met Hezbollah secretary general Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah. He appeared repeatedly on Al-Manar TV, Hezbollah's blatantly anti-Semitic and pro-terrorist TV propaganda arm, being shown around by Hezbollah minders. He toured their "hall of martyrs" and announced "that the victory...

    C-SPAN aired a repeat appearance of Mr. Chumpsky at West Point Military Academy April 20. Chomsky was evidently invited by a gushing West Point philosophy professor, Robert Tully, who had such reverence for Noam that I wondered why my tax dollars were supporting such an America hater as Chomsky as well as the salary for the leftist professor at West Point. The young, impressionable cadets offered Chomsky a little bit extra applause and a gift at the end of his address. The speech seemed shorter than the overly ingratiating introduction given by the anti-military West Point professor Tully. Chomsky blasted...

    Following are excerpts from an interview with the American linguist Noam Chomsky, which aired on LBC TV on May 23, 2006. Interviewer: Do you consider Hizbullah to be a terrorist organization? Chomsky: The United States considers Hizbullah a terrorist organization, but the term terrorism is used by the great powers simply to refer to forms of violence of which they disapprove. So the U.S. was of course supporting the Israeli invasions and occupation of southern Lebanon. Hizbullah was instrumental in driving them out, so for that reason they are a terrorist organization.
