Brendan Steinhauser, a University of Texas at Austin student journalist, calls Chomsky a seditious, deceitful "ayatollah of anti-American hate" in an article for David Horowitz's FrontPage magazine:

About a thousand or so radical students appeared to be in an almost hypnotic state as they listened to Chomsky's anti-American statements. ... [H]e seems to be advocating "direct action" to bring about a radical change in the nature of the U.S. system of government. Many young people certainly understand this to mean that they should take any measures, violent or otherwise, to bring about this change.
