Gnome Chomp-Ski isn't a tiny person in some European fable who eats skis.
Rather, he's one of the leading misleaders of the "left," a group of people who like to know nothing themselves and rely nearly exclusively on Appeals to Authority. And the "authority" to whom they appeal most often --more often than appealing to Karl Marx, it must be said-- is Noam Chomsky.
Chomsky! He ______________!
Chomsky! He said ______________!
Chomsky! Semiotics! I don't understand semiotics so Chomsky MUST BE a genius!
Chomsky! Linguistics! I don't even know what "linguistics" is, is it a kind of pasta? Anyway, if Chomsky is a professor and scholar in that field, he MUST BE a genius!
If his name were John Smith and he was a Protestant, Roman Catholic or Mormon by faith and social group belonging status, he would NOT "matter" nor be thought a genius.
If the best argument you have for the "important" status of Chomsky, for the proof that Chomsky "matters," is that the CIA investigated Chomsky: please remind yourself that puts a lot of people in the GENIUS WHO MATTERS AND IS VITALLY IMPORTANT category, many of whom you probably dismiss out of hand for their reactionary and/or corporate status.
If it takes you thousands of words to show why Chomsky MATTERS AND IS VITALLY IMPORTANT, perhaps you should show us what he's done that hasn't been done by others before him or contemporaneous with him.
You may want to show why helping America's foremost weapons research facility (MIT) makes him completely not "corporate".
Also, it may behoove you to tell us why, whenever the Gnome begins gnawing at skis, he tells only 65-75% of the truth on any given sociopolitical matter, and withholds that 25-35% of the picture which may cause people to doubt Chomsky's own veracity, integrity, sincerity, or sanity.
Perhaps it could help resolve the question of authenticity if you explain why Chomsky apologizes always for technological means of warfare, torture, psychological manipulation and espionage, while saying all technology is inherently good, but sometimes is undone by nefarious people.
When you've finished, you may anoint yourself as the Pope of Chomskyism, and don the phallic cap and grab hold of the sceptre before ascending to the throne of the Righteousest Religion on Earth: Chomskyism!
