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.

Noam Chomsky Denied Entry into Israel

Brilliant MIT Professor and Outspoken Critic of Fascism: Noam Chompsky

This is a most baffling situation. Noam Chomsky is an ethnic Jew, and in accordance to Israeli law all Jews are granted entrance into Israel.

But, as of today when Chomsky attempted to enter Israel for a speaking engagement at an Israeli university his passport was stamped “Denied Entry”.
Speculations point to reasons being how much Chomsky has been a critic of the fascist Zionist government policies against the Palestinian peoples.
The interesting twist is when those who argue in favor of the Zionist regime they claim how “democratic” it is.

Well this proves them wrong….

A while back we posted about how Jews who oppose Zionism are treated and regarded by Jews who have bought hook line and sinker into the Fascist based nationalism that Zionism is about

Chomsky is now an even more public victim of the Zionist Fascism.

American linguist Noam Chomsky was denied entry into Israel on May 16, 2010

Professor Noam Chomsky, an American linguist and left-wing activist, was deed entry into Israel on Sunday, for reasons that were not immediately clear.

Chomsky, who was scheduled to deliver a lecture at Bir Zeit University near Jerusalem, told the Right to Enter activist group by telephone that inspectors had stamped the words “denied entry” onto his passport when he tried to cross from Jordan over Allenby Bridge.

When he asked an Israeli inspector why he had not received permission, he was told that an explanation would be sent in writing to the American embassy.

Chomsky arrived at the Allenby Bridge at around 1:30 in the afternoon and was taken for questioning, before being released back to Amman at 4:30 P.M.

Interior Ministry spokeswoman Sabine Haddad said Chomsky was turned away for various reasons but declined to elaborate. The ministry was looking into allowing him to enter only the West Bank, said Haddad.

In a telephone interview with Channel 10, Chomsky said the interrogators had told him he had written things that the Israeli government did not like.

“I suggested [the interrogator try to] find any government in the world that likes anything I say,” he said.

Chomsky is a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and is considered among the foremost academics in the world. He identifies with the radical left and is often critical of both Israeli and American policies.
