"Anti-American!" with Noam Chomsky. Just because someone opposes US government policy does not mean they oppose the American people. The term "anti-American" is being used to suppress legitimate criticism and dissent in the same way tyrants throughout history have done so (and so whittled away democracy). For more political animations, see "short thoughts" on firstworld.ca, or check the drop-down menu on the lower left of this page. Peace!

You no what, You may not like some politicans of America fine, but what makes you think someone like Michael Moore or Chomsky are just going against the goverment. Michael Moore quotes"the Iraqis who have risen up against the occupation are not 'insurgents' or 'terrorists' or 'The Enemy.' They are the revolution, the Minutemen, and their numbers will grow - and they will win.“I like America to some extent.”''We Americans suffer from an enforced ignorance. We don't know about anything that's happening outside our country. Our stupidity is embarrassing.'' Yeah true Americans huh. They are anti Americans and you no it.

The man makes a few good points:

There isn't really a "different side" to this speech. He never once mentions Iraq, or the current administration, nor does he attack anyone. He simply states that making the blanket statement that "If you don't agree with my policy, you are against me and my people" is a totalitarian concept, and he is correct.

There seem to be two basic types of people in this country; there are those of us who can at least make a rational argument about something, specifically policies, and can have a discourse about these things. And then there are people who believe in thier ideals so rabidly without understanding them or being intelligent enough to debate them that the only argument that they can put forth is the idea that if you don't agree you are clearly a terrorist.

That is the point of this speech, not Bush bashing.

Yawn...

This was basically just a slideshow. Poor choice of muzik under, and some problems with your audio levels. Now for content: Chomsky is a socialist pure & simple; always has been, always will be. He may be able to speak with an air of detachment, but he fails to see the big picture; speaking instead on small portions of it & coming to the wrong conclusions; much like the story of the blind men & the elephant.

Very true

I love America and it's people, but the government suck.
When I made the GWB song, I wasn't attacking the U.S., just the prat who thinks he runs it!
I guess this informative piece is getting attacked from the same mis-guided fools?
