The Anti-Chomsky Reader Page 10...

Provocative essays that analyze Noam Chomsky's intellectual and political career: coverage includes Chomsky's contribution to linguistics, his hatred of Israel, gloating reaction to the September 11 attacks, as well as his collaboration with Holocaust revisionists, apologies Pol Pot, and others.

C h a p t e r Home  | T O C  | I n d e x x The Anti- Chomsky Reader But Chomsky was unlike other antiwar intellectuals in that he never made a cerebral return to Vietnam to rethink the conse­quences of the Communist takeover there. As Stephen Morris shows in “ Whitewashing Dictatorship in Communist Vietnam and Cambodia,” Hanoi has remained for him a place of the radi­cal heart, where unblemished goodness continues to engage the absolute evil of American aggression in a freeze- frame death struggle. He continued to serve the Vietnamese revolution after Hanoi, under the guise of “ reeducation,” sent hundreds of thou-sands of Vietnamese to Hanoi’s gulag, relocated up to two million to the New Economic Zones ( a jungle version of its Soviet patron’s Siberia), and forced tens of thousands of “ boat people” to take their chances on the open sea. Confronted with evidence of these homicidal policies, Chomsky, as Morris points out, rushed to defend Hanoi: “ For him there were only two ques­tions to be asked— whose interests were being served by all these ‘ negative reports,’ and how could these reports be disproved?” Morris shows that Chomsky took exactly the same stance when word of the Khmer Rouge’s killing fields arrived in the West. Unlike some of his comrades who had joined him in regard­ing Pol Pot as a revolutionary hero and who had second thoughts as the bodies accumulated, Chomsky held fast to the radical party line, initially trying to minimize the deaths in Cambodia (“ a few thousand”) and comparing those killed to the collaborators who were executed by resistance movements in Europe at the end of World War II. Writing in The Nation in 1977, Chomsky practiced his own version of killing the messenger by savagely attacking the witnesses, some of them fellow leftists, who brought out news from Phnom Penh of the developing holocaust. In 1980, when it was no longer possible to deny that some 2 million of Cambodia’s 7.8 million people had indeed perished at the hands of the Khmer Rouge, Chomsky, still in denial about the Communist rulers, sug­gested that Cambodia’s problems might have been caused by a failed rice crop. As late as 1988, when the skulls were piled too high to be ignored any longer, he returned to the subject and insisted that while bad things may have happened in Cambodia, the United States was to blame. While he was establishing himself as a permanent scourge
