Obama Is Dedicated To Terrorism, Says Noam Chomsky

Obama Is Dedicated To Terrorism, Says Noam Chomsky
SPECIAL

Earlier in the week, friend of President Barack Obama and former Weather Underground member Bill Ayers criticized the President for his foreign-policy initiatives, which Ayers deemed to be terroristic. It’s one thing when a left-wing activist with ties to terror in his own background criticizes Obama; but for anyone who was hesitant to agree with Ayers because of his sordid past, celebrated left-leaning polemicist Noam Chomsky has your back.

In a thorough interview with GRITtv host Laura Flanders, the MIT professor and prolific author said that Obama has not just earned the title of “terrorist” — the President has proven time and again that it is “dedicated to increasing terrorism.”

“The Obama Administration is dedicated to increasing terrorism,” he went on. “In fact, it’s doing it all over the world. Obama, first of all, is running the biggest terrorist operation that exists, maybe in history. The drone assassination campaigns, which are just part of it… All of these operations, they are terror operations.”

Chomsky explained that the Administration’s drone policy is strikingly evident as a multiplier of violent extremism.

“People have a reaction, they don’t say, ‘Fine, I don’t care if my cousin was murdered.’ And they become what we call terrorists,” he said. “This is completely understood from the highest level, that as you carry out these operations you’re generating terrorism.”

Later, echoing a belief that anyone familiar with the foreign policy positions of former Representative Ron Paul has heard before, Chomsky surmised: “People hate the country that’s just terrorizing them, that’s not a surprise. Just consider the way we react to acts of terror. That’s the way other people react to acts of terror.”

 

 

If the Federal officials in the United States are dedicated to promoting terrorism in other parts of the world to maintain a military presence, Chomsky forces Americans to wonder: Is there great reason to question what actions the government may take in order to continue to justify its secret surveillance of U.S. citizens and other people throughout the world?

The author — who has penned several works and lectured relentlessly about the evils of top-down media propaganda throughout his career, including his famous Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media — decried the Federal government’s spying on its citizens and people of other countries in a separate interview with The Guardian.

Of the recently exposed National Security Agency data-collection efforts, Chomsky said he wasn’t surprised; but he applauded The Guardian and whistle-blower Edward Snowden for bringing the surveillance to the peak of public awareness.

“Governments should not have this capacity. But governments will use whatever technology is available to them to combat their primary enemy — which is their own population,” he told The Guardian.

“… But it is a little difficult to be too surprised by it,” he said.

What is a big shock to Chomsky, however, is how comfortable he feels younger populations are with the government’s all-seeing surveillance state.

“Polls in the U.S. indicate there is generational issue here that someone ought to look into — my impression is that younger people are less offended by this than the older generation. It may have to do with the exhibitionist character of the internet culture, with Facebook and so on,” he said. “On the internet, you think everything is going to be public.”

The only way to reverse course, according to Chomsky, is for more government whistle-blowers and more serious journalists to blow the cover of dangerous government policies and stir up public debate, regardless of whether Federal officials fulfill promises of transparency.

Unfortunately, suspected terrorists and uncooperative heads of state in the Mideast are not the only people subject to the President’s wrath; and whistle-blowers, especially, have not been treated kindly in Obama’s America.

It’s starting to become clear, even mainstream, as people like Chomsky continue to become increasingly vocal in resentment of the current White House’s actions: The true perpetrators of some of the vilest acts carried out in recent years aren’t all hiding in caves in the Third World.

Most of them are roaming Washington’s marbled halls.

    To bad we don’t have a giant EMP that would knock out all technology,, all over the World. Yeah things would be a little tougher, but people would need to rely on each other more, and Governments would lose alot of power. I would be OK with that.

  • Ron r

    First of all anyone who would write garbage like this should be considered a terriost. I think the team if Bush/Chenney trained terriost in Irag after illegally invading that country. It’s really a shame you would try to make a dime off terrioism but I see there is no shame to your game Mr. Rolly. Or should I call you brother jihadis???

    • Tommy cunningham

      We shouldn’t be the worlds police, however Bush/Cheney didn’t invade Iraq illegally, congress voted and gave them authorization to do so, unlike Obama when he got involved with Libya without congressional approval !

    • Brandon

      Ron you are extremely bias, everyone here sees it!! I have been viewing your comments for some time now and you have proven yourself to be mentally ill equipped for this forum!!! We all understand every government is corrupt to some degree but the bold and blatant disdain this president has for OUR CULTER in ignoring the people, it’s criminal activities, and circumventing its laws and checks and balances are inexcusable!!! There is a lot about this president that is being covered up!!! Not good for the people!!!

    • Random Erik

      Lol – as usual, Ron…

      Obviously you are unaware of what an outspoken critic of “Bush Junta” (as he called it), and the Iraq War, Noam Chomsky was. He actually published a few short books on these subjects, in which he vilified Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, etc. congressional approval or not, the action basically violated international law, and he was also among the first to point out that Bush’s claims about WMD’s were ridiculous. For Chomsky to be so critical of Obama is, when viewed through the slant of American politics, ironic to say the least.

      I think Sir, that you have completely missed the point.

      I would also point out (again) that this isn’t about Bush, Cheney, or Iraq. This is about Obama, the American people, and the current and future conditions of liberty in America itself, and around the world. I for one, did not fail to see that the Republican Party, and indeed this country, were hijacked by a neo-conservative cabal during the two administrations of G.W.Bush. However, you seem to fail to recognize that the liberal progressives, headed by Obama and his team, have picked up right where the afore-mentioned presidency left off. In other words, they have both demonstrated a culpability in advancing the same agenda. Both of the major parties are now left of center, working from different angles, toward a common goal, at the expense of Americans and of third world countries alike. The dogmas they each pedal respectively cannot be reconciled with the acts they commit, or the transgressions against American liberty and prosperity, of which they are both guilty. But only one of them is in power at the moment. Let us keep our attention toward that, rather than continually bemoaning the events which led us here.

    Obama is as psychotic as the people he kills! If he doesn’t start another war somewhere then the economy will take a header. A lesson the demoncrats learned from JFK and Johnson.

    • Tommy cunningham

      Actually JFK didn’t start a war, we didn’t get involved in Vietnam until after JFK was assinated and his executive order keeping us out of Nam was rescinded by LBJ , however the whole time LBJ was trying to get JFK to enter into it. Could go on to how a powerful Texas senator decided to give up the power for Vice President seat and ended up as president after JFK shot in Texas, but that’s all conspiracy theory. The first part in regards to Nam is fact…… Look up the other stuff and how it ties into executive order 231 I believe in regards to 11/22/63. Just saying….

      • Tommy cunningham

        Got the executive order wrong, trying to look it up, while I was did find 11110 that stripped power from federal reserve and gave back to treasury to print money without going thru fed. Reserve to do it. June 4, 1963….

  • yogibear

    ITS FUNNY I HAVE A AN IDEA FROM ALL THE INFORMATION, BUT IM WITHOUT WORDS. THATS WHY JESUS CHRIST WROTE REVELATIONS THRU JOHN THE BELOVED’s HAND. THIS IS JUST ONE OF THE THINGS HE SAW. WOW!!! IT HAS TO HAPPEN. CRAP!

  • Glenda Terrell

    Why isn’t our Elected Officials doing their jobs? Most of what he has and is doing us unconsitutional.

      To many people are afraid of the Government. Untill the people stand together and say enough, they will continue. Things will keep getting worse until then.Time for Americans to stand up, and show what we are made of, if they plan on staying free.

      • Random Erik

        Well… More Americans need to realize that our government was never intended to become a completely separate entity. Americans let that happen. Too many have left the business of running this country to “someone else.” Too many have the attitude that we pay these other people to work for us, in our best interests. Too many have been willing to give up our authority over government, and now we live in a completely different America… an America in which the government has assumed total authority over us. The people have let that happen.

        We aren’t talking about a situation in which people in government have suddenly taken us to an extreme. No, what we face now is the result of a gradual change, one in which these people have slowly taken over everything – every aspect of our lives, and now it seems, our future. They did this without a bloody revolution, without any “military coup.”

        And now, we have to take it back from them in the same manner. Complaining, protesting, marching – these are not actions, they are symptoms.

        We have three options here:
        1.) We maintain this path of blissful ignorance and let our freedom slip through our fingers like sand. We have, more or less, already addressed that.
        2.) We tear this country apart with a bloody revolution that we are ill-prepared to win. We are unorganized, and in the event of widespread civil unrest, the government is already prepared to disable our ability to communicate, to travel – indeed, even to sustain ourselves with basic necessities like food and water. They are entrenched in city-sized facilities buried within mountains and deep underground, all over the countries. They control the skies. They control everything. They are self-sustainable, bullet-proof, bomb-proof, EMP-proof. Many people like to point out that they may have the guns, but we outnumber them. Yet they fail to understand that through mass-starvation and disease, that equation could very quickly be rendered completely impotent and ineffective.
        3.) We start doing what we always should have done, and take responsibility for ourselves back from these people. That means getting involved at every level. Every political meeting. Every school board meeting. Every decision that affects us as a country, as a state, as a community, and as individuals demands our attention, our consideration, and our willingness to act. I are a lot of people commenting on various issues, claiming that “this was not what our founding fathers meant or intended.” Very often these people are right, but I would like to remind them – an everyone else – that our founding fathers also never intended for Americans to sit around idle and leave the decisions of government to the greedy and power hungry, while claiming we had done our duty to our country by casting an occasional and uninformed vote.

  • Random Erik

    I wonder, will the Republican elite continue to brand Chomsky as,” a man who hates America,” now that his views would seem to serve their political aims, rather than subvert them?
