Both Hitch and Chomsky are (were) brilliant men, but the magnitude of their
brilliance reflects the magnitude of their mistakes. Hitchens' support of
Iraq sounded no different to me than old imperialist rhetoric, and
Chomsky's conspiracy theories and blatant misuse of language (e.g. calling
the hiring of old Nazi intelligence officers by the US after WWII a
"U.S.-Nazi alliance", or comparing the Israeli campaign against the
avowedly genocidal terrorist organization Hamas to the Holocaust) are so
stupid that only brilliant intellectuals could come up with them.

Author Tonyo1221 (2 months)
If you took away the condescending accent and use of some flowery, though
rarely used words in the English language you would realise Hitchens was
far from a great thinker.
In this clip, in lay mans terms, he basically says . . . . . . . . that guy
Noam Chomsky doesn't like all things American so if you agree with him your
in grave danger of sympathising with or even supporting Jihadists in their
beliefs. Really Hitchens??

Watching the arguments on here between the Hitchens and Chomsky sycophants
is just about a perfect microcosm of this "region" of youtube. The funny
thing is most fans of both these men are self proclaimed anti-religion,
anti-institution, anti-heirarchy, not to mention style themselves "free
thinkers". Let me attempt to get this through your impenetrable melons:

******If you are an adult and you worship someone, follow them like a
puppy, agree with literally every sentence they ever utter, would have
butterflies in your stomach if you met them in person, and are emotionally
crushed or at least sorely disappointed when they switch to a view that's
too far outside your bubble, you are not a free thinker.******

Be an adult. Have some damn self-respect. If you're 15, then okay, you're
the same as a little girl peeing her pants at a Bieber concert or a kid
wearing a Lebron jersey. If you're a grown-ass man or woman, contain
yourself. Think for yourself. Come to your own independent conclusions. ***Realize
that your favorite thinkers are fallible humans who make mistakes all the
time, and realize that there are brilliant people who disagree with you,
both on the left and right, theist and atheist and agnostic. This does not
mean that everyone is equally right, but there is literally no downside
to respectful discourse over shouting matches or name calling.*** Realize
that you are not perfectly objective, but don't let that stop you from
seeking the truth.

Hitchens, the salesman, could sell himself to the right & left. He could
almost set himself up as deity. I admired him, read him, but never spent a
dime on him. He never needed my dime, thank goshness. Chomsky? Agree about
1/2 the time. He comes in handy when I start to think that gawd has chosen
the US. The US has to get in line with all the other bloody "chosen". We
are the worst until you consider all the rest. That is considered to
equivocal a view for right wingers.

Author Max Schlepzig (2 days)
Wow. I guess his degree of intellect can make him to form such an
erroneous, convoluted opinion of the position of Chomsky, who, speaking of
''sneakily suspicious'', Hitchens forgets to mention had not just an impact
on the American Left, but also a direct impact on *him* for the majority of
his professional career. But I don't think its his degree of intellect but
more so his submission to power and the personal benefits thereof. 

Author Bod Notbod (2 months)

What incredibly false reasoning is this. Just because he didn't like the
genocide of indians, doesn't mean Chomsky is not for the wellbeing of
Americans. A part of his work is in fact about improving the situation for
the average American.
He just criticizes power in America and he does it with facts. Iraq was
bombed with false reasoning it had horrible consequences, the moderate
population who was against Saddam didn't want bombs thrown at their
country, this happened while the US first supported Saddam when he was
gassing Kurds. It was done for oil and nothing more.

once loved the mind of this man,..hitchens was one of the most brilliant
minds you could ever listen to or read...was there something other than
9/11 that turned him to the worship of the state/empire?? and it is in fact
true, that it has been little more than genocide since ww2 by the U.S. and
the "powers that be".

Author Andy Parker (24 days)
Hitchens and Chomsky were very intelligent men who searched for meaning in
the world and reported truth as they saw it. But they could never look at
the world through the same pair of eyes so their perceptions were always
subject to differentiation.

I agree with most things anti-authoritarian uttered by both men: Hitchens
who bashed the Church and Chomsky who bashes the State and Corporations. It
does take a lot of effort to remain passive and convey only empirical data
when we are by nature emotional creatures, so it is understandable when we
exaggerate a point if it stretches towards our view of the world. Although
Hitchens simplifies this point, "Chomsky believes the US has been all
genocides since Columbus", because Chomsky believes this to be the case
more so than Hitchens, it is an unfair statement and Chomsky would never
say this explicitly, even if this is close to how Chomsky perceives the US.
To then say, "Chomsky will sympathise with those who believe the US is run
by Jews" is again an unfair simplification and one that suggests Chomsky
will lean towards racism and anti-semitism, which is again an exaggerated
over-simplification to stretch a point to Hitchens' own view of the left as
being more radical then they actually are.

Hitchens then is more right-leaning and naturally distrustful of anyone
more left, or even, more right than he.

Hitchens, like Chomsky, has sometimes used provocative language to
exaggerate his point to stretch to his own worldview and this is something
I dislike very much. Provocative language certainly can build your
audience, but when you have an audience you have a social responsibility to
speak the truth, not just how you see it, but backed by empirical evidence.

Finally, I feel that it is right and fair to be distrustful of power
structures. It is folly to have blind faith in the individuals in the
capstone of power structures in a world of vested interests, deals made
behind closed doors and the existence of pathological/sociopathic control

All decisions made that effect the public should include public discourse
and total transparency to prove themselves legitimate. Otherwise they must
be deemed as suspicious and illegitimate and opposed by an organised united
people. This is why I am an unashamed Anarchist and so should you be.

Author MethenySco (20 days)
These remarks are so blantantly ridiculous and false that they don't
dignify a response. Hitchens could only be popular in our spectacular world
of media-born fakes and charlatans. He could turn a phrase and wield charm
but his ideas were incoherent compared to the true intellectuals of our
time, Chomsky being one of them.

Oh brother...

They say one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter. That may be
true to an extent, but I don't view suicide bombing, use of human shields,
and the explicitly declared desire to kill all Jews (all of which Hamas is
guilty) to be legitimate forms of political expression. If you do, then we
have nothing to talk about.

God, you can see how drunk he is here. So Chomsky is not an anarchist,
why? Because he believes the US (government, not people) has been all
about genocide? Sounds pretty anarchistic to me... Also if you take that
position, then its a short skip and a hop to being some anti-jew neo
fascist (Chomky is racially Jewish by the way)... Huh, glad hes dead and
Chomsky is still kicking around with relevant and thought out arguments.
God, anyone who ever has anything to say against Chomsky, whether it's
Skinner, to Zizek, or this clown, can not for the life of them actually
make a real argument.

Author Matthew Singh-Dosanjh (3 months)
Just glancing briefly at the comments section, (1) Chomsky fanboys hunt in
pacts and (2) they're clearly incapable of resisting ad-hominem attack,
having the emotional intelligence of a juvenile. Ironically, Prof. Chomsky
himself would likely loathe these sorts people.

I'm not sure how accurate this is. In the ytube video: the "cold war
explained in 5 minutes" Chomsky says: "America is, in my opinion,
politically speaking.... the freest country in the world" If you watch his
videos about afghanistan you can see the reason he doesn't critisise groups
like the taliban is not because he's sympathetic with them but because
nothing he says about them will have an effect. So instead he focuses on
the crimes (as he sees it) of the United states.

Author drjimiboy69 (10 months)
Completely simplifying Chomsky's work and thinking. Hitchens is too smart
to actually argue what he is saying. His bizarre take on the slaughter in
Iraq and the "War on Terror" suggest he has suspended his more
characteristic intellectual soundness and rigor on these subjects. I like
him a lot, even if he's dead wrong here. He always had a nasty streak. Part
of what made him who he was. 

Author permanentkick (9 months)
Hitchens was more than just a chickenhawk with a posh accent and a serious
addiction problem. It is unfair to call him a " talentless old queen" or
compare him to Anne Coulter simply because he had larger breasts and a
smaller adam's apple....More accurate to say "subcriminal sociopath" or
perhaps "Shameless Statest shill" 

Author misOBGYNist (6 months)
Hitchens sold out when it came to Iraq and the US foreign policy. Note that
his stance changed most dramatically after he expatriated to America to
further his career and have a cushy retirement. $$$ does funny things to
people--mainly bring out who they really are. In this case, a sell-out. He
vastly oversimplifies Chomsky's position. I'm not saying Chomsky is perfect
or always right, but Chomsky would have run circles around Hitchens's
rhetoric on this topic. No wonder Hitchens never went anywhere near the
general vicinity of Chomsky for a debate. Better to throw stones from a
distance and run.

And this is coming from someone who has greatly respected and admired
Hitchens overall. Objectivity is not for the weak of mind, least of all the
personality worshiper...

Author MrAcarine (10 months)
It's funny, but I became disenchanted with both Hitchens and Chomsky when,
IMO, they both went wrong, but in opposite directions. Hitchens became a
fan of American aggression(Iraq and Kosovo), while Chomsky insists on
blaming everything on America and Israel, no matter what other people(Al
Qaeda, the Serbs, the regime in the Sudan) are doing.

Author Skizzofonik (9 months)
I really do admire Hitchens' work on religion, theocracy and atheism, but I
must say I strongly disagree with some of what he's implying here. It is
simply a fact that the US has been responsible for the death of an
overwhelming number of innocent people. The fact that anarchists oppose the
United States for this reason completely contradicts the notion that they
would be supportive of "theocratic nihilists" since they essentially follow
the same doctrine as the US. No one wants to "destroy" the US, it simply
has a corrupt government that should be abolished, just like all other
governments should.
