The Anti-Chomsky Reader Page 8...

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 viii The Anti- Chomsky Reader Manufacturing Consent, a documentary adapted from a Chom­sky book of the same title, has achieved the status of an under-ground classic in university film festivals. And at the climactic moment in the Academy Award– winning Good Will Hunting, the genius- janitor played by Matt Damon vanquishes the incor­rect thinking of a group of sophomoric college students with a fiery speech quoting Chomsky on the illicit nature of American power. The devotion of Chomsky’s followers is summarized by radio producer David Barsamian, who describes the master’s effulgence in openly religious terms: “ He is for many of us our rabbi, our preacher, our Rinpoche, our sensei.” But unlike other cult figures, Chomsky’s power is not com­manded by the authority of charisma or the electricity of revelation. His speeches are flat and fatwa- like, hermetically sealed by syllogism and self- reference against the oxygen of dis­agreement. His power comes not from his person, but from the fact that he, more than any other contemporary public intellec­tual, gives an authentic voice to the hatred of America that has been an enduring fact of our national scene since the mid- 1960s. It is a voice that also is easily distinguished from others with similar commitments. Chomsky is interested in a few “ truths” that are always “ beyond dispute.” His citations often loop back solipsistically to his own works. He argues with such imperious disregard for other explanations that he often seems to be talk­ing to himself: “ The so- called War on Terror is pure hypocrisy, virtually without exception. Can anybody understand that? No, they can’t understand it.” The Anti- Chomsky Reader does not seek to deprogram members of the Chomsky cult. But it does offer a response and an antidote to the millions of words Noam Chomsky has emitted over the last thirty- five years, and tries to explain to those who do not yet accept him as their Rinpoche what he has stood for during that time. Some of the ideas on his intellectual curricu­lum vitae that are discussed in the following pages— his defense of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge, for example, and his support of Holocaust revisionism— may surprise those who know Chomsky only generally as a bilious critic of U. S. foreign policy. Other
