Glenn Greenwald on Noam Chomsky

Glenn Greenwald of the Guardian reports on the way revolutionary thinkers and activists are covered (read- smeared) in the media, focusing on the dismissal of Noam Chomsky’s rhetoric by critiquing his personality and not his arguments, summarized as:

Chomsky is a sarcastic, angry, soporific, scowling, sneering self-hating Jew, devoid of hope and speaking from hell, whose alpha-male brutality drives him to win at all costs, and who imposes on the world disappointingly crude and simplistic arguments to the point where he is so inconsequential that one wonders whether he has ever changed even a single thing in his 60 years of political work.

Read it at the Guardian.
