1969: Buckley vs Chomsky





Yes, it is 1969. I was a strapping lad then, more concerned with matters related to the other gender, but even I understood the 1968 tragedy of Prague. The Cold War in its prime, the Soviet camp at its brutal self, the gray suffocating blanket of the usual incessant lies squeezing all of us. And here we have a progressive professor (now the Mastermind of the Century) magnanimously preaching moral equivalence between the West and the East.

It took one William F. Buckley Jr. not to beat the shit out of that creep there and then. I would have.

Pity, though. Maybe it would have made him hesitant about licking Hezbolla's arses in Lebanon these days.
