Is Noam Chomsky an anarcho-syndicalist or proponent of the Federal Reserve? A fearless political crusader or defender of the Warren Commission JFK orthodoxy? A tireless campaigner for justice or someone who doesn’t care who did 9/11? Join us this week on The Corbett Report as we examine some of the subjects that Chomsky would prefer you didn’t think about.

  1. This is an excellent report by James, as one would expect. He doesn’t try to say “why” Chumpsky behaves as he does, merely that he is obviously a Left Gatekeeper. Still, it’s very instructive. I liked the concept of building up his capital (credibility) so that he can spend it (on propaganda). This applies equally well to Seymour Hersh. Below is a link to the audio version.


  2. An excellent report, and one that inevitably invites speculation as to his motive. I can only think of two possibilities:

    1. He genuinely wants to protect the criminal power structure that lies at the heart of the USA.
    2. More likely he has been intimidated by the FBI, who no doubt have files on the private lives of almost everyone of note in the U.S.

    Whatever the truth, it illustrates the fiendish sophistication of the U.S. propaganda machine. By allowing – and even encouraging gatekeepers to attack the periphery, the myths of ‘democracy’ and ‘freedom’ are promoted, whilst giving solid protection to the toxic core of the criminal inner power structure.
