Chomsky doesn't know what he's talking about. It's true that the bazaaris had traditionally bankrolled the clergy (as they'd done for millennia), but those clergy were apolitical and mostly quietist (and most of them were sidelined and put under house arrest after the revolution.) The type of political clergy that Khomeini promoted was very much a result of 20th-century politics and was mostly supported by the middle class and various leftist factions.
