Noam Chomsky is one of many M.I.T. community members with Gangnam style

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Famed Massachusetts Institute of Technology linguist Noam Chomsky is best known for writing detailed analyses about how U.S. foreign policy reflects the desires of American corporations.

      That's why his fans might be surprised to see him make a cameo appearance in this video by the Korean Students Association on campus, starring Richard Yoon. It was inspired by South Korean star PSY's "Gangnam Style".

      Noam Chomsky demonstrates his Gangnam style.

      If you know anything about Chomsky then you know he's the sort that will go well out of his way to help young people - in this case, kids from the Korean Students Association at MIT. That PSY is now an international super star is, to Chomsky, irrelevant. What mattered here, I'm reasonably certain, was that some students asked him to appear in their video.

      Surprised? No. Happy? Yes.
      If there is one person in the world the world should listen to, it's Noam Chompsky.

      This gate keeper on the left has no problem with suspending the laws of physics when it comes to 9/11.

      Let's assume, for a moment, that you're right - that 9-11 was an inside job. Now, in terms of the number of lives taken, how does that even BEGIN to compare to the invasion of Iraq? Does it hold a candle to the number of people that died annually in the US due to the lack of health insurance?

      Take a step back and consider the big picture. 9-11 was, in the grand scheme of things, a small crime with the benefit of having a very high profile. Three thousand dead doesn't even come close to the very real, easily verifiable crimes committed by the people you want to blame for 9-11.

      But no, Chomsky is a gate keeper (Oooo, spooky Alex Jones nutter-speak), deluding people into not looking at things that matter, right? Wrong. Actually, that role is yours, pal. You're the idiot distracting people with nonsense that not only can't be proven but wouldn't even make the top ten list of bloodiest crimes committed by those you accuse.

      "My grandchildren will like this" were his exact words and reason why he did it.

      Communist Fuck your small crime of a False Flag Attack murdering only 3,000 Capitalists was the pretext to the war on terror. The next time they kill another 3,000 of us don't wait for Chumpsky to tell you what to think. Celebrate the new form of tyranny you deserve.
