Daniel Hannan Is One Of The Reasons We Don’t Lose Hope

The Oxford Union

Founded in 1823, the Union has hosted world leaders in virtually every field. These have included Presidents Nixon, Carter and Reagan, Michael Jackson, Clint Eastwood, Diego Maradona, the Dalai Lama, Benazir Bhutto and Mother Teresa. More recently we have been honoured by visits from speakers as varied as Shakira, Tony Benn, Martin Sheen, David Cameron, Sir Ian McKellen, General Petraeus, and Johnny Depp.

Genius on display:

One is stunned to think that, in stark contrast, some people find a certain teleprompted lightweight is a great thinker and speaker.

This video should go viral.

    Ah yes. The famed Oxford Union that defeated a motion to defend their country in 1938 during their undergraduate debates. It appears that the Bertie Woosters of the Oxford Union invited an even bigger twit to speak.

  • joethefatman

    Dude is correct. Good points even if he did bring up a certain former congress critter.

  • smitty

    Now, if you’re going to troll, do it right, a la whig.

  • K-Bob

    Yes, because obviously there’s a huge connection between a choice made by students in 1938 to roll over for the German Chancellor, and a man of today, defending the very thing Herr Hitler had hoped to destroy. Golf claps all around, old chap. Well done.

    What next? The connection between Rwandan Death Camps and Seattle’s legal marijuana shops?

    That was something I wish Romney had watched about a hundred times before steamrolling his way to a win in the primaries. Defending capitalism from the left is really that simple.

    Of course, I’m sure Joe Scarberry’s moment at #NRISummit had to be so, so, very much way more better.

    Hannan was respectfully received at Oxford, so that is something, although the young faces in the crowd were hardly understanding, by their expressions.

    But if you watch the EU “Parliament” when any of the critics speak, they point out failure after failure and all the broken promises, while the Euro-weenies sit silently shaking their heads and tut-tutting with their eyes. That’s disheartening – they aren’t embarrassed in the least, they think it utter rubbish to be criticized at all.

    Stupidity is a hot commodity.
