    And of course Prof Noam Chomsky, voted the foremost intellectual in the world, who the collective wisdom of our TD Wokewalkers assure us is only qualified to comment on linguistics.
    And they wonder why they are openly sneered at. It is impossible to debate with retarded lemmings, so laughter and good old fashioned satire is the best medicine. Oh dear, are we invalidating you?

    Pearls before Swine, but required reading I believe-






    “If we don't believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all.”

    The irony is that Chomsky would probably pick that blatant straw-man fallacy to pieces in a matter of seconds.

    Incidentally, did you know that Chomsky likens Confederate statues etc. as putting monuments to Hitler in the middle of a Jewish community and advocates that they should be removed. Those same statues that stand as monuments to losers that you conflate with history and misguided notions of 'freedom of speech'.

    Editing that post just to include more ad hominem shows right about where your unsullied academia is at also.

    Pretty funny that these right wing wack jobs are now parading Chomsky out simply because he said something that happens to fit their narrative. The fact is he is no ally of theirs at all.

    Par the course.

    I remember when some Islamic group brought out David Duke for a speaking engagement in the sandpit on how nasty the Joos are.

    When it was pointed out to them that he considered the locals to be an inferior, subhuman race, they blustered "But that's not the bit we brought him out for!".

    Who are you trying to kid? The only but of that book you have ever read (and probably not even understood) is the cover photo you downloaded from an image search.

    You could go a step farther with it. If you flip the narrative back on the right wing turds who have been attempting to opportunistically cherry-pick Chompsky's words to further their own agenda you would realize that that book speaks more truth to the media sources of the modern right than anything else. That is what is so utterly laughable about it as nobody outside the right wing bubble is exposed to as much propaganda as they are.

    Sadly most of them are too stupid to see it.

    So now I'm a right wing whackjob? What a refreshing change from the TD peanut gallery. I suppose that is because I disagree with you on one or more issues- same reason that a world leading intellectual is only qualified to comment on linguistics then- according to our intellectual lemmings, anyway. Thanks indeed for the compliment. Of course, unless you suffer from severe amnesia, you will know full well I have 'paraded out' Chomsky many, many times on this Forum. Strangely enough, I have previously been called a commie for this same blasphemy. Ah, the fickle fancies of the baying mob. Nice to see I've hit a homer.

    Catering for the intellectual sophistication of my rapt audience, here's another real simple quote to see if you can digest it. Read slowly now.


    I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.


    Ah yes, again. Something about Free speech- how annoying. I suppose your mob would rather beat to death someone who says something you disapprove of.

    Naturally, as is anyone who doesn't guzzle wokery. I predict later that you'll become a right wing whackjob twat.

    Where did I say that? It should be pointed out to you that I was not referring to you specifically as you were not the first one to mention Chomsky. The fact is that the right wing propaganda machine has and that is where all these other brainwashed lemming got it from.

    Leave it to the Dim Prik Coot to drop the IQ of the discourse by at least 50 points. I didn't even know what all this woke bullshit was until you right wing bozo's started foaming at the mouth over it. Seems you have created more of a sensation than most of us on the left had a clue about.

    I do enjoy playing whackamole- Don't you? Here is another statue to tear down, my free willed lemmings-





    But you will have to Google Socratic Method for yourself, I'm afraid. I'm off to watch the footie. Actually, on second thoughts don't bother. He probably owned slaves.

    Hackneyed quote and another straw-man.

    He used to be a very well reasoned and intelligent poster. Hell he was an SC mod for a long time and was very far in his moderation in all fairness he did allow for both sides to have discourse. That said I think too many years in the Issan sun and all that early morning ya dong has cooked his brain. He is simply not the same poster he once was.

    I was thinking similar. I’m a bit bemused by it all to be honest: was he always a bit twatish and I just didn’t notice or is it a new thing.

    He keeps getting things factually wrong and seems like he is trolling but then he’ll jump on things and shows he’s being serious.

    No not at all. He and Lardy modded SC for before DD died. I do believe it was him that maintained a spreadsheet that documented all the posts deleted back then. Boontard was always at the tip-top of the list.

    All these things aside and from objective observations over the last couple of years, it seems that his perspectives and views turned rather callus and "traditional" after his unpleasant personal affairs in Thailand and his abrupt departure....returning to Australia.

    Appeared to be a bitter pill to swallow, hence the transformation.

    He's a bit like an Aussie Rocketship mutual friend of ours, leans rights, prefers to think of himself as being libertarian.

    Noah Lyles of the US was denied a 200m world record in the Inspiration Games after it was revealed he ran only 185m because of a blunder by the organisers.


    The 22-year-old’s 200m world champion’s time of 18.90sec on Thursday would have bettered the 19.19 mark set by the Jamaican great Usain Bolt in 2009.
