Blankfort vs. the Chomskybots

Regular radio guest Jeff Blankfort's latest Chomsky critique has elicited yelps of outrage from the followers of His Noam-ness.  (Jeff debated Richard Curtis on my show last month, and skewered Chomsky back in April.)

Methinks they doth protest too much. What's really going on here, it seems to me, is that Chomsky and his fellow-left-Jewish-Zionist acolytes are trying to police the pro-Palestinian movement in the US, and Blankfort is calling them on it. Specifically, the Chomskyites don't want pro-Palestinians  challenging the legitimacy of the Zionist state or engaging in effective action against it. And the most effective possible action -- the exposure of the Zionist Fifth Column in America as prime enemy of both American ideals and the American people -- is what Zionists posing as pro-Palestinian lefties truly fear and loathe. As Blankfort suggests, these folks, who are extremely prominent and numerous on the left, have effectively hobbled the pro-Palestinian movement in America.

I know this from personal experience. In the late 1990s, I dared to express the Muslim-majority viewpoint on Zionism -- that it is just another Crusade whose days are numbered, that it is an artifact of the vast power of the Zionist Power Configuration (ZPC) in the US, and that the best way to fight it is for pro-Palestinians to be American patriots and expose the ZPC as an enemy parasite on our body politic. For saying things like this on the al-Awda (Madison, WI) forum, I was viciously attacked by a Jewish left-Zionist bully named Allen Ruff, who is well-known in Madison for his physical as well as verbal aggression against fellow activists.

Ruff never physically attacked me, as he has apparently attacked several other local activists. (Here he is punching Mike Delaney because Delaney dared to wear a "Zionists Did 9/11" T-shirt.) Though my face remains unacquainted with his fist, Ruff has repeatedly offered me snarls of verbal abuse accompanied by fierce grimaces.

The last time I was in Rainbow Cooperative Bookstore, where Ruff works, he saw me browsing and charged me, stopping only when his unsightly mug was a foot or so from my face. "Get out of here," he screamed. I held my ground and stared him down, informing him that it was a public, cooperative bookstore. Ruff continued screaming at me. Another bookstore worker appeared and asked me to leave, apparently assuming that I had caused the disturbance. I explained that I was just looking at books when this maniac (Ruff) came screaming out of nowhere for no apparent reason. The worker continued to ask me to leave, then retreated as I ignored both her and Ruff and continued examining the bookshelves, under Ruff's angry glare, for another ten minutes or so before leaving.

This sort of thing happened dozens of times between roughly 1997 and 2007. What made it so bizarre was that I had never evinced the slightest shade of antagonism toward Ruff. On the contrary, I always treated him politely, usually with attempts at friendliness. (I somehow held out hopes of winning him over as an ally.) Then finally, in 2007, after having been unilaterally abused at least several dozen times, I finally verbally unloaded on him after he approached me in a public place and snarled "I hear you're a holocaust denier." The corpulent bully seemed to wilt under the heat of my words. Apparently he isn't accustomed to people standing up to him.

Of the dozens of incidences of verbal abuse I've endured from Ruff, the most bizarre occurred just seconds before I introduced David Ray Griffin at his nationally-televised C-Span talk at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I was standing at the podium getting ready to introduce Dr. Griffin when a visibly apoplectic Ruff, a fanatical enemy of 9/11 truth, got up from his seat, approached me, and growled from close proximity: "We're keeping a file on you! That right, WE ARE KEEPING A FILE ON YOU!" The next morning, he mass-emailed an attack on me, the gist of which was that I was a bad guy because one of the endorsers of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth, Israel Shamir, was a bad guy. He then began circulating rumors falsely (and ridiculously) claiming that I had accused him of being a Mossad agent.

What explains such out-of-control animosity? A Palestinian graduate student, intimately familiar with the movement, explained it to me: "Ruff and other Jewish lefties -- who are not really opposed to Zionism -- are trying to dominate the pro-Palestinian movement in the USA. They insert themselves between the Palestinians and the American people, and do everything they can to keep the Palestinians marginalized and ineffective, and to make sure that nobody ever talks about the elephant in the living room -- the Zionist Power Configuration. Anybody who lets Muslims or Palestinians speak for themselves, or who shares the fully anti-Zionist views of most Muslims and Palestinians, becomes a target for 'anti-Semite' mudslinging. You, Kevin, are their worst nightmare. You're an articulate white American Muslim and a committed anti-Zionist, and you know and openly say that the neocon Zionists did 9/11. You're plainly not anti-Semitic, yet you know and say that the only way to beat the Jewish lobby is to expose them as an anti-American fifth column. This terrifies them. No wonder you take so much abuse from the likes of Ruff."

And no wonder Blankfort takes so much abuse from the acolytes of Noam "it wouldn't matter if 9/11 was an inside job" Chomsky.

[Note: Along with his attempts to intimidate me, and his verbal and physical attacks on other activists, Ruff has authored a deceptive hatchet job on James Petras, the only American academic with the guts to research and tell the truth about Zionist power in the US.  (Listen to last Tuesday's interview with Petras here.)]

  1. Very interesting article in the weekend Wall Street Journal. It turns out that Chomsky's much-vaunted linguistics theories about basic mind-language patterns being pretty much consistent and generic cross-culturally and across the board don't hold water.

    New research is showing that our language DOES affect the way we think and vice versa.
    The way we view our universe, the way we comprehend our universe, is apparently a result of our linguistic constructs and patterns.

    Fascinating stuff.

  2. Why has the Democratic Party been unable to deliver on so many issues? Think about the things the majority of the country supported over the years, and yet the party, oddly, simply stopped talking about, let alone supporting. 1) Getting the money out of politics. The party has only upped the ante and remained silent while corporate money gained more power. 2) Media monopoly. That no longer is something the party allegedly for the little guy talks about. They justified media consolidation by pointing to the internet. Yet, the internet is turning out to be completely inadequate as a consolation prize for free speech. 3) Corporation rule. Healthcare would be the best example of Democratic capitulation to corporate rule. And so on. When you examine each element that people supported and voted Democrat because they thought the party would advocate for those positions, you see there has been no real alternative. And when you ask "who benefits?" you see that Jewish politicians have had an agenda of increasing Israel's political power here, with left and right viewpoints making little difference. Look at the percentage of the Senate that is Jewish and the committees they sit on, the power they wield, all the while controlling the "liberal" opposition. The whole thing is a bad joke (as even Netanyahu admitted saying our 80% approval rating of Israel was "absurd").
    And of course language matters. You have to have the words to express your thoughts to even think them let alone share them with others. I once greatly respected Chomsky, but he's a chump if he thinks it doesn't matter who attacked us on 9-11.

  4. Dear Dr. Barrett,

    The only conspiracy that matters is [or in E-Prime: seems to qualify as (or seems to me and many others of us as)] the conspiracy of the psychopaths against the rest of us.
    ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E-Prime )
    Does Noam know about "psychopathocracy," and why does Amy Goodman continue to censor any mention of the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) $CAM on her so-called Democracy Now! The U$A has never qualified as a "democracy." (See appended "Signature" for CAFR). That leaves us with the question, "What to do and how to do it?" Thank the Fates for the Internet (while we still have it)!

    I have read (more than once) your much-needed "Twilight of the Psychopaths" and appreciate your having written it!

    I saw both WTC towers collapse on 9/11, 2001, and remain convinced that I saw controlled demolitions.

    At almost 80 years of age and a long-time journalist, I think I can spot a Big Lie when I see one.

    Indeed, we live in a Kleptopsychopathocrary.

    Do keep up your good work.

    Meanwhile, "back at the ranch," do you think Noam will learn how to spell "Griffin"?

    ...heard of nothing remotely comparable concerning Griffen, Falk, or other very....

    Chomsky: That is completely false. Years ago I saw Griffen's book and.... (but obviously didn't have timeternity to read it).

  5. Opinion on it aside, I love how all these people who have accomplished little in life sit on their little machines and critique the likes of Noam Chomsky. Monday morning QB's everywhere.
