Noam Chomsky on Ron Paul's 9/11 Theories: "What He Said Is Completely Uncontroversial"

http://youtu.be/01e8-zSLkg0

DemocracyNow.org - During the most recent Republican presidential debate on Monday, September 12th, Congressman Ron Paul of Texas drew boos and jeers from the crowd and his fellow debaters for his views on the roots of 9/11 attacks. Dr. Paul criticized U.S. foreign policy as the catalyst stating, "we're under great threat because we occupy so many countries... We have to be honest with ourselves. What would we do if another country, say China, did to us what we do to all those countries over there?" For more, Democracy Now! spoke with Professor Emeritus of Linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Noam Chomsky. Dr. Chomsky responded to Dr. Paul's comments by reciting the history of antagonism to US policy, concluding: "I think what he said is completely uncontroversial. You can read it in government

documents."

Lefties showing there true colors: control the conversation

When Ron Paul asks the people to question the government's imperialistic military actions:

-the right ridicules him...demeans his character

-the left says his message is uncontroversial...demeaning the message

Notice, combined they demean BOTH the message and the messenger.

They don't want people actually talking about these things.

This is an example of how they control the conversation.

And you know Ron Paul's message is really resonating if the left propagandists are stepping forward. They don't want Democratic voters talking about this...so they are throwing up a wall...a "nothing to see here, move along" wall.

Ironically, I learned some of this by Noam's book "Media Control".

Per Amazon, "Media Control" is:

Noam Chomsky’s backpocket classic on wartime propaganda and opinion control begins by asserting two models of democracy—one in which the public actively participates, and one in which the public is manipulated and controlled. According to Chomsky, "propaganda is to democracy as the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state," and the mass media is the primary vehicle for delivering propaganda in the United States. From an examination of how Woodrow Wilson’s Creel Commission "succeeded, within six months, in turning a pacifist population into a hysterical, war-mongering population," to Bush Sr.'s war on Iraq, Chomsky examines how the mass media and public relations industries have been used as propaganda to generate public support for going to war. Chomsky further touches on how the modern public relations industry has been influenced by Walter Lippmann’s theory of "spectator democracy," in which the public is seen as a "bewildered herd" that needs to be directed, not empowered; and how the public relations industry in the United States focuses on "controlling the public mind," and not on informing it. Media Control is an invaluable primer on the secret workings of disinformation in democratic societies.

=====================================

Despite initially heralded as a whistleblower, Noam has proven himself to be a major player in controlling the conversation. He is just another inside job...pushing people to accept US/Israel imperialism.

Pro-war conservatives have logically inconsistent demands

At least liberals consistently ask for higher taxes to pay for higher entitlements. Neo-cons on the other hand want war, want some kinds of entitlements and want lowest possible taxes. These are such logically inconsistent demands. Where do they think the money comes from for the wars they want to keep raging!

More coverage on the Military Industrial Complex

Hi everyone,

I hope we have more stories on the Military Industrial Complex. I think we are getting somewhere here. I have hope that liberty will survive. That we can win this war.

another honest man--

Noam Chomsky.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

More Chomsky on Ron Paul

Here's an email exchange about Ron Paul with Noam Chomsky: http://www.thevolunteer.ca/2011/09/noam-chomsky-on-ron-paul-...

certainly sounds like Chomsky is aware of . . .

the existence of the PTB/banksters and how much power they wield.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Noncontroversial ...

... and correct, and just and fair.

We could also add that no matter what the motive was, we were wide open to attack because we have not honored the Constitution. We are MORE vulnerable now that we are moving rapidly toward a police state.

A friend of my is a retired commercial pilot. He recently emailed our group explaining about the 2 phony "air marshalls" that were caught after enplaning, disrupting the flight schedules. He said that the common sense and effective ways of preventing such nonsense when he was a pilot, have been disallowed by the TSA/DHS.

What we have now instead is nude scans and physical violation by TSA inspectors, that do NOTHING because they target everyone EXCEPT someone who might be a terrorist, because to nude scan / physically violate them would be an imposition upon their religion.

this guy will help get us

this guy will help get us VOTES!!!!!!......................... not.

Noam may be a Keynesian..

But he's no War Monger.
