Funny how little things have changed.

I stumbled accross this today. I had heard about it, but had never seen it.

A must see.






Update: I had to split this into two parts for some reason.

  • Okay, do tell! He is the worst interviewer I have ever seen. Should I know this supercilious prick? Why did Chomsky even submit to face that ordeal?
    Scratch the first query, who else could it be?

  • William F. Buckley Jr.

    Supposedly one of the top conservative minds in America.

    Chomsky absolutely ate him for lunch. It was glorious.

    It reminded me of many arguments I've had with my uncle where I quote facts and he uses metaphores.

    I only wish I had the body of knowledge behind me like Chomsky does.

  • Yep, liberal apologists will always be liberal apologists. (Have I misunderstood or did Chomsky actually advocate for letting Hitler have Eastern Europe?)

  • Liberal apologist? Who exactly was he acting as an apologist for?

    You made me watch it again, but I have to say I enjoyed it even more the second time. I was able to be more analytical and less emotional.

    You definately heard wrong. He was taking the piss out of Buckley about disinterested intervention and the fairy tale of Hitler restoring the Slavs to their rightful place.... . He was being sarcastic.

    Please, watch it again.

    Arch, you drop these bombshells and have nothing to back them up with. I dug up an old open thread on Hamdan that you completely left.

    After I dug up all the links for you on this and the other case, not a word. No, instead you give me Dershowitz and make me almost lose my lunch.

    Thanks.

  • Yes, yes,, I know,, but it's fun to watch the reaction. Plus, I always have a CYA clause in my bombshell

  • And yes,, I do owe you somthing on Hamdin, I have not forgot. Overtime is offered and us union folk got to earn a living.

  • Indeed Arch,

    This is an excuse I can accept. Work has to come first.

    So you accept that Chomsky is not an apologist. Correct?

    Yes, Chomsky is not an apologist. He is more akin to a chess player amidst a world of poker sharks. (Easily bluffed by the notion that all things can be negotiated)

    By Anonymous Arch Stanton, at 10:27 PM  

  • I can accept that assesment.

    I suppose Chomsky and I share the (perhaps misguided) opinion that negotiation is preferable to war.

    It is always more desirable than war. It's just that when it doesn’t work out, and your hand is forced, you really have to be willing to wage war.

  • Chomsky was pretty impressive but I didn't see any lunch eating. With history since that time, Buckley has only seemed more right and Chomsky more wrong. Good choice. I still recall the Firing Line where the guest turned Buckley from rabidly anti-illegal durg to libertarian on drugs. That guy was impressive (no memory of a name). Keep up the good work.

    You mean facts like building 7 being an inside job? At least your uncle never sends, as proof of a point, a link to a web site that is clearly satirical in nature and then never backs up his point with any substance. LOL
