I’ll be goshdarned if that notorious creative revolutionary, pale, isn’t the illegitimate granddaughter of Benito Mussolini (or Woodrow Wilson — hey, same diff, natch) . Oh, and I’m really and truly offended by the rank bigotry displayed here by liberal jackboots David Neiwert and PZ Meyers.

Noam vs. The Good Doctor

by matttbastard

Noam Chomsky on Ron Paul:

He is proposing a form of ultra-nationalism, in which we are concerned solely with our preserving our own wealth and extraordinary advantages, getting out of the UN, rejecting any international prosecution of US criminals (for aggressive war, for example), etc. Apart from being next to meaningless, the idea is morally unacceptable, in my view.


[H]is form of libertarianism would be a nightmare, in my opinion — on the dubious assumption that it could even survive for more than a brief period without imploding.

As they say, read the whole damn thing
