For those of you who’ve been ogling the 2006 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, you might be interested to know that cover model Elle Macpherson is a leftist . . . or an incredible airhead. She appears topless on the cover, second from the left.
While she looks great on the outside (she’s third from left here), the bikinied one’s views on the inside appear to be quite ugly.
In Friday’s USA Today, in the “What Are You Watching?” feature, McPherson told reporter Karen Thomas that she is watching “Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media.” Says Elle:
He (the MIT linguist and political activist) is a fascinating character, and the subject is really interesting.
Noam Chomsky is a far leftist, loon, kook, subversive, hate-America-firster, pro-Islamist enemy in our midst. David Horowitz wrote a great encapsulation of “The Sick Mind of Noam Chomsky.” We hoped the swimsuit model’s video choice was just an aberration. But no-no, uh-uh. In an interview with Easy Living magazine, the 40-year-old Aussie bikini model shows us she’s a philo-Chomsky-ite.
What are you reading at the moment?
Elle McPherson: I read all kinds of things. I love Paul Auster and I’m reading Hegemony Or Survival by Noam Chomsky, which is really interesting. I read in bed and I read when I travel.
FYI, the full name of the Chomsky book she’s reading is “Hegemony or Survival: America’s Quest for Global Dominance (The American Empire Project)“. You get the point. Chomsky says America is a warring country seeking to build an empire, not a liberator trying to achieve peace, freedom, and democracy.
This is from an approving Amazon.com review of the book:
Chomsky brilliantly brings forth a theme . . . pointing out that the *only* “superpower” capable of containing the neo-conservative, neo-totalitarian, neo-Nazi militarism and unilateralism of the current Bush Administration is “the planet’s public.”
Chomsky updates his work with both excellent and well-balanced footnotes and an orderly itemization of the arrogance, militarism, contempt for international law, arbitrary aggression, and–Bible thumpers take note–proven track record for supporting dictators, Israeli genocide against Palestinians, and US troop participation in–directly as well as indirectly–what will inevitably be judged by history to be a continuing pattern of war crimes.
The case can be made, and Chomsky makes it, that the US arms industry, and US policies on the selling and granting of arms world-wide, are in fact a direct US commitment to repression, genocide, and terrorism sponsored by one big state: the US. He is most interesting when he discusses the new US approach to repression, the privatization of actions against the underclasses of the world.
Heard enough about Elle McPherson’s new political muses’ views? We have. But, unfortunately, Noam Chomsky continues to draw a small, loyal nutty following.
Who knew a beautiful Sport Illustrated swimsuit model was among them? Shows us, once again, that beauty is only skin-deep.
