People verbally acost me for attacking the Chomskys - - if they were pure and honest, why do they always appear to come down on the side of the oligarchs and hegemons?
If Avi Chomsky can dismantle so-called myths, dismantle us this, Chomsky?
(1) Chinese workers flown in to build a bridge in Idaho - - clearly illegal, but once the TPP is passed it will most certainly be legal?
(2) Thai farm workers flown in to replace laid-off American and Mexican farm workers in central Washington and California, and farm workers in Hawaii?
(3) American IT workers ordered to train foreign visa replacement [scab] workers from India, or else the American workers will lose their severance and any possibility of a positive reference?
(4) When Bunge Foods lays off all their workers at various facilities, and replaces them wholesale with undocumented workers?
Immigration is one thing, the Chomskys' constant revisionism of modern history is quite something else! [When I worked in Miami for a short period, I once overheard several conversations at a bus stop from the same Cuban woman immigrant: the first time she was bragging to another lady about how easily she obtained a domestic position at a well-to-do lady's household; several months later she was talking to the same woman friend, but this time crying, saying how she lost her job because another immigrant was willing to work for a cheaper salary! Now that's American reality!]

An excellent antidote to the anti-Latino sentiment that prevades our society today.
