Default Partners in Hate Noam Chomsky and the Holocaust Deniers

http://www.wernercohn.com/Chomsky.html

Chomsky's writings are often praised by his admirers as packed with "facts." And indeed there are many footnotes and many references to apparently esoteric pieces of information. But I have found that these references, at least those that deal with crucial points, simply do not check out. Sometimes the source is impossible to track down, sometimes it is completely misquoted, very often it is so patently and completely biased that no responsible scholar could have taken it at face value. Later in this essay I shall demonstrate these problems by examining Chomsky's treatment of two important episodes in the history of Israel. In regard to Chomsky's treatment of U. S. foreign policy, Stephen Morris has already demonstrated Chomsky's sleight-of-hand methods back in 1981. (16)

Even I'm getting tired of this, Gobby. Go and vent in the comments page of Oliver Kamm's blog. He'll love you.

Holds the belief that intervention in East Timor was 'imperialist' - hmmm
Holds the belief that the massacre at Srebrenica was 'exxagerated' - oooh

Nah, that's exactly what he said. Great linguist, rubbish speller.

Why should that impress you?

From Wikipedia: According to the Arts and Humanities Citation Index, between 1980 and 1992 Chomsky was cited as a source more often than any living scholar, and the eighth most cited source overall.
Which proves nothing about Chomsky's work except that people pay a lot of attention to it.

Didn't it ever occur to you that it might all be a massive fraud? Chomsky's linguistic work is a fraud. Nobody can tell me the value of it.
