Congratulations America!

Obama's Victory -- A British view

The Daily Mail (UK National Paper) wrote this editorial about Obama recently.


OBAMA'S VICTORY?

A victory for the hysterical Oprah Winfrey, the mad racist preacher Jeremiah Wright, the mainstream media who abandoned any sense of objectivity long ago, Europeans who despise America largely because they depend on her, comics who claim to be dangerous and fearless but would not dare attack genuinely powerful special interest groups.

A victory for Obama-worshippers everywhere.

A victory for the cult of the cult. A man who has done little with his life but has written about his achievements as if he had found the cure for cancer in between winning a marathon and building a nuclear reactor with his teeth. Victory for style over substance, hyperbole over history, rabble-raising over reality.

A victory for Hollywood , the most dysfunctional community in the world. Victory for Streisand, Spielberg, Soros and Sarandon.

Victory for those who prefer welfare to will
and interference to independence. For those who settle for group think and herd mentality rather than those who fight for individual initiative and the right to be out of step with meager political fashion.

Victory for a man who is no friend of freedom. He and his people have already stated that media has to be controlled so as to be balanced, without realizing the extraordinary irony within that statement. Like most liberal zealots, the Obama worshippers constantly speak of Fox and Limbaugh, when the vast bulk of television stations and newspapers are drastically liberal and anti-conservative.

Senior Democrat Chuck Schumer said that just as pornography should be censored, so should talk radio. In other words, one of the few free and open means of popular expression may well be cornered and beaten by bullies who even in triumph cannot tolerate any criticism and opposition.

A victory for those who believe the state is better qualified to raise children than the family, for those who prefer teachers' unions to teaching and for those who are naively convinced that if the West is sufficiently weak towards its enemies, war and terror will dissolve as quickly as the tears on the face of a leftist celebrity.

A victory for social democracy even after most of Europe has come to the painful conclusion that social democracy leads to mediocrity, failure, unemployment, inflation, higher taxes and economic stagnation.

A victory for intrusive lawyers, banal sentimentalists, social extremists and urban snobs.

Congratulations America!

"banal sentimentalists"

They like the non-banal kind, I guess. They've got a point!

@Steel Rain - Care to provide a link to that article?

This was the Daily Mail editorial AFAIK:

Wow, and you don't even assert that the charges are wrong. I guess truth truly doesn't matter when it comes to Obama.

Well, one can only stand so-much western smuggery, wrapped in eastern banality. But I suppose if you've paid to be a Premium Lifetime Ass-Licker, you might feel the need to get your money's worth.

My.....aren't we a little bundle of joy today.

I was sitting at work on break and here is a room full of middle aged white guys. We kept looking at the clock and counting down how long until we got a new president. Then again, we kicked the British out years ago because we didn't like their attitude. We've also had to bail them out of trouble more than once.
