another hitler!

29 Jun

It appears that Noam Chomsky, a Jewish-American linguist, scholar and writer, is as bad as “Adolf Hitler, Pol Pot, Mao Tse-tung, Joseph Stalin, Vlad Tepes, and Immanuel Kant.” (Kant? WTF?)

I think Greg lost me when he wrote ::

…think about the most evil people that have ever lived and think of what those people have done. Think about Adolf Hitler…

C’mon, Chomsky is just a thinker, whether you agree with him or not.

Bandying around words like “Hitler”, in comparison, is just plain lazy… and somewhat predictable.

Now, a measure of perspective from the author would be most welcome. (h/t Richard)
