william buckley threatens to punch chomsky in the face

A clip from a famed debate and interview where Left Wingers claim Buckley threatens to punch Chomsky. But, it is a humorous remark said by Buckley AFTER Chomsky says he might, jokingly, lose his temper.

Overall, Chomsky won the actual debate on facts- something Buckley could not do, and at times Buckley comes off as petty, but in listening to the longwinded Chomsky one can see here, even this early, how easily Chomsky got off on the sound of his own voice and aversion to the specifics directed at him.
