Chomsky lost his balance well before that.I'm afraid Chomsky lost his balance when he supported the racist lynch mobs in Libya in 2011, and he has never regained it.
Btw in 2011 the people in those mobs in Libya were a lot different to what they became after Assad turned Syria into a Jihadi magnet. They were mostly young Muslims with a vision that was compatible with values of freedom and democracy. I have demonstrated that before.
Whatever, Chomsky's radical support of totalitarians throughout the 50s, 60, 70's and later, does not preclude the possibility that now and again he is capable of saying something that has a good amount of truth in it.
It's worth a listen.
