Feminist thinker and general contrarian good-egg Camille Paglia is having a go at Noam Chomsky today, citing his "half lunatic" books and "toxic" views.
I entirely agree. Chomsky's work has always been a half-assed, slapdash attempt, designed to play on the ignorance and prejudice of his audience.
Granted, his political theories have been proven surprisingly accurate by recent events, but what kind of deranged, moonbat lunatic could possibly give credence to his "universal grammar" theory?
Children having an innate knowledge of the basic grammatical structure common to all human languages, indeed.
Next you'll be telling me that spiders squirt silk out of their backsides and build webs to catch insects.
