Oliver Kamm and the Anti-Chomskyite have been giving Noam Chomsky a thorough debunking recently. I suppose someone has to do it. I have no taste for cleaning out the Augean stables, myself. The AntiChomskyite's conclusion is spot on. He summarizes part of what makes most Leftist intellectuals tick, in fact: "What is important to Chomsky is not the facts, nor any fealty to moral principles, but his own ferocious rage and desperate belief - and need to believe - in his own moral righteousness. Like all fanatics, it is his faith in his own rectitude and his own purity that not only gives him license to violate basic tenets of truth and logic, but also justifies the extraordinary leaps of moral bankruptcy in which we see him here" (Via Marc Miyake).

The latest barefaced Leftist lie: "College students are receiving alarmist e-mails warning them they may be drafted if President Bush wins re-election"

Radio Islam is an amazing site. It openly circulates and promotes the ideas of Adolf Hitler -- mainly because their own ideas seem to be the same. And it's headquartered in Sweden. Where else?

The Federal leader of Australia's Left says he wants no special deals for unions. Good if it's true: "Mark Latham has rejected any special deal with the trade unions, denies that he will re-regulate the workplace and says that his business critics misunderstand him."

Contrary to current American policy, Steve Sailer says that letting Turkey into the EU would be against everybody's best interests. Randall Parker seems to agree. I normally agree with both gentlemen but I think I am a bit more Machiavellian than they are on this one. I think that, whether Turkey gets in or not, the whole issue will eventually force Europeans off their moral high-horse and make them admit to ethnic and religious differences. For their sakes, I hope they will have enough sense to realize the danger of letting in a horde of 20 million Muslim immigrants before it happens but if they do let them in I will just be laughing at the resultant upheavals. It could even be the death of political correctness about race and multiculturalism. Whoopee!

Mrs Kerry's elitist view of her fellow Americans: "Oh, there is a lot of scumbags everywhere. Not just in politics. In everything. There are a lot of immoral people everywhere."

Australian Christians are getting organized: ""Family First" is a new Christian-based party that - sadly - is scared to admit to being any such thing. But by not mentioning its God, it has whispered out of nowhere to be a chance to share the balance of power in the Senate. We are seeing the birth of a new and canny conservative party, out in the grasslands of a religion represented for too long by big-city clergy who shared the politics of the cultural elite -- far to the Left of the people in their pews..... And this time it's not big-government Catholics, but free enterprise Protestants -- Evangelicals, Pentecostals and charismatics. Christians whose churches are booming with certainty, not sinking in doubt"

Che Guevara is likely to remain a cult figure for the more brainless Left. But, says Daniel Wolf, the man was a thug and a fool, and he helped ruin Cuba.

That power only, not principles, is what matters to Leftists is perfectly shown by the Kerry campaign. They have put up a man whose policies seem to be 99% the same as George Bush's even though they have previously disagreed violently with those policies. "Whatever it takes" is their rule.

The conflict between conservatives and Leftists is not usually a conflict between realists and idealists. Mostly it is a conflict between realists and big egos who will say anything to win applause
