The excerpt below is from a text of talks given by Noam Chomsky, the full text of which is available here. I highly recommend downloading this PDF and reading the entire thing. Chomsky's views are readically defferent from anything you'll hear in the drive by media or even from most patriot and libertarian sources. In fact while I have no reason to know if George Carlin and Chomsky ever met, Carlin's historic rant about who really owns this country and your miniscle place in it can be found here with all the foul language in tact and perfectly, if colorfully, similarly reflects Chomskys point of view - remember the truth will set you free!
Keep in mind that this statement from Chomsky was made in the early 1990's and is as true today as it was then. When then, cannot the candidates including Mr Trump and his idiotic companions in crime come close to a statement like this. Perhaps it is because they like keeping you in a state of willful ignorance.
Questioner: Dr. Chomsky, I have a question. Would you agree that in this attack on the less powerful people of the world generally, there is also a secret, vicious war being waged on the Muslim people? And what do you think is in store for Muslims in general in the world?
Well, it does happen to be the case that plenty of Muslims have been getting it in the neck from the United States - but that's not because they're Muslims, it's because they're not sufficiently under control. There are plenty of white Christian people who are also getting it in the neck. In the 1980s, the United States fought a vicious war in Central America primarily against the Catholic Church - and that means European priests, not just priests from indigenous origins - because the Church had started working for what they called "the preferential option for the poor," therefore they had to go. In fact, when Americas Watch [a human rights organization focused on North and South America] did their wrap-up study on the 1980s, they pointed out that it was a decade framed by the murder of the Archbishop in 1980 and the murder of six Jesuit intellectuals in 1989, both in El Salvador-yeah, that wasn't accidental.
