Video: Noam Chomsky thinks your 9/11 conspiracy theories are stupid. We agree!

Every so often, a few lay people get it in their heads that they can either adequately debate Chomsky or that they’re able to trap him in a “gotcha” moment. Chomsky is a world-renowned linguist, and that there are people out there who think they can trip him up or expect to get a pat answer out of a few leading questions amuses us to no end. Case in point: this recent talk Chomsky gave at the University of Florida where a 9/11 truther asked him a long-winded, leading question about building seven. I guess it’s because they’ve heard two or three things Chomsky has said that dovetail into their conspiracy theories, but they seem to believe that simply because they agree with a few things Chomsky says, Chomsky must agree with everything they say.

The result is utterly devastating in a way that only a Noam Chomsky beatdown can be:

My favorite line?

“There happen to be a lot of people around who spent an hour on the internet and think they know a lot of physics, but it doesn’t work like that”

The truther who asked the question also put it up on his youtube channel, and he’s predictably baffled by Chomsky’s “shocking” response– which, of course, isn’t shocking at all if you’ve bothered to read any of his books.

What Really Happened on 9/11/10 in NYC: HATEFEST the Video

As we reported a week ago about the “Hatefest” In NYC for the 9/11 anti-Muslim/Mosque protest by New York’s disturbing “whites only” crowd.

Now, from a collaboration from the “Town Hell Posse” there is the video!

Free Republic Leader Kristenn Taylor Takes An Honest Stand Against Ron Paul Followers And 9/11 Tr00thers In the Tea Party Movement

Most of us at the Lady Liberty’s Lamp collective have known Mr. Taylor for some time now. We have hardly ever been on the same side of the issues with him and his Free Republic buddies. We even have had a few sparing matches from time to time.

But, we do have our hats off in respect to Mr. Taylor for taking an honest stand against the really ugly elements in the conservative movement, especially the Ron Paul cult followers.

This seems to show some sort of issue between the racist Ron Paul followers and the rest of the Republican party.

Just today Ron Paul staffer Lew Rockwell posted up on his blog a big slam against the rally calling the organizers “Red State fascists”

No More Marches on DC
Posted by Lew Rockwell on September 14, 2009 08:19 AM

For many years, pro-lifers have expended vast time, energy, and money “marching on Washington” every January, to exactly zero effect. Worse, they hark back to pro-redistribution events. And always, as with the latest 9/12 extravaganza headed by red-state fascists, the marchers assemble on the “National Mall,” the government grass that extends from Lincoln’s Roman temple — where he sits enthroned like Jupiter, fasces and all — to George Washington’s obelisk, an Eqyptian monument to the god Amon Re. In the distance is the capitol, whose dome copies the Roman pantheon, temple to all the gods. In the top of the dome is a painting of Washington being assumed, like the divinized Julius Caesar, into Heaven upon his death. Even Jefferson is portrayed as a god in a Roman temple. Not far away is the the Greek temple where the nine supremes hand down the “law.” Then there is the vast executive apparatus, headed by a living god, and dedicated to killing, spying, taxing, redistributing, inflating, and controlling. Really, DC is one nasty place. So why would anyone concerned about the state and its power “march on Washington”? Such events only dissipate energy, and fool people into thinking that their time and money have accomplished something, as the regime laughs up its sleeve. Indeed, that is the purpose. So stay home. Read, write, work, organize, and avoid DC like the plague it is.
