The linguist Paul Postal on Noam Chomsky, as quoted in the March 31 issue of the New Yorker:
After many years, I came to the conclusion that everything [Chomsky] says is false. He will lie just for the fun of it. Every one of his arguments was tinged and coded with falseness and pretense. It was like playing chess with extra pieces. It was all fake.
