Created: Saturday, 20 October 2007 Written by Harry MannImagine, if you will, that a mufti of some obscure Islamic country (for the sake of this discourse lets call it Cuntastan) traveled the world and claimed that he had some divine right to lead his country because as a child some clerics picked him. He would be laughed out of court; in fact he would probably be rightly targeted as some sort of a terrorist.
Well change his story to that of being a Buddhist from some non-existent country called Tibet and you have the story of the Dalai Lama. Feted by both loony lefties and febrile fascists, this man has the general public of the West fooled and twisted round his little pinky.
He has no democratic credentials. His high-flying lifestyle, bankrolled by his dimwit Hollywood followers, has nothing to do with the day to day life of those in Lhasa. If an election was held there he would come last.
I say he is a fraud of the highest order. A religious fanatic who wants to impose his fairytale vision of the world on his nation. He is no different to the hated Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran; an ignorant fool whose beliefs belong in the dark ages not in today's rational world.
The lies of the Dalai Lama and his cult like followers need to be exposed. There is no such thing as a gentle Buddhist fundamentalist; scratch their surface and you will find the fanaticism of a Tamil suicide bomber. They, like their ignorant bedfellows the 'born again' Christian and Muslim extremist, hate our way of life. The freedom of western civilisation infuriates them. A Buddhist fundamentalist like the Dalai Lama wants to control all our needs and desires; he hates our sexual freedom, our intellectual freedom, and our entrepreneurial freedom. He wants to maintain us in a stranglehold of ignorance and nonsense so he can rule alone as the holiest of holies.
The Dalai Lama and drug taking: the link is irrefutable.
Ladies and gentleman, the Dalai Lama has no legitimate claims. Look at the chaos in Burma; all that religious extremists like the Dalai Lama can offer is ignorance and superstition. He has no place on the international diplomatic scene and should be given no more rights or recognition than your average citizen.
