Pat Condell Offering Simple, Sad Truth

A pitch-perfect delivery, via Da Tech Guy.

UPDATE (RSM): The strongest sentence is when Condell says of the Palestinian leaders, “They don’t want peace, they want victory, and the won’t be happy until Israel is wiped from the map.”

Palestinian nationalism is a toxic legacy of an era young people don’t remember and which too many older folks never really understood, when the Soviet Union sponsored “movements of national liberation” throughout the Third World. Yasser Arafat was to Palestine what Ho Chi Minh was to Vietnam. Everything I need to know about Palestinian nationalism I learned as a boy in June 1968 when we turned on our TVs and learned that Robert Kennedy had been assassinated in Los Angeles. That’s why I refer to modern liberals as the Sirhan Sirhan wing of the Democratic Party.

    That is a powerful statement.

    Apparently, Condell is an iconoclastic atheist, so I’d probably disagree with him on many questions. One could argue, however, that his type is especially effective in criticizing (radical/political) Islam. Some “progressives” are apt to indulge guys like Condell, whereas if the exact same message (as presented in the above video) were delivered by a “Christianist,” it would be tuned out completely.

    I’ve seen this guy before. His message here is right on, but his militant crusade for evangelical atheism in other videos blunts his right on message on this topic. I’m sorry, he’s right, but he’s shown by his previous videos that he is an utter mouth breathing idiot. What I see here is a blind pig finding an acorn. Yippie, it’s an acorn. He’s still intellectually and logically bankrupt. His chosen world view demands the extermination of the Jews, however much he may deny it. After all, aren’t there more Arabs/Muslims/whatever? We’re all animals, Darwin has determined the outcome, monkeys squabbling amongst themselves over the biggest banana. He’s everything that’s wrong with humanity today.
