Cindy Castano, working to end slavery in Sudan... No Nobel Prize for You!
And why should she get it? After all, what’s several decades of hard work freeing desperate beaten and raped slaves whom the world has basically turned their backs upon, out of fear to offend angry Muslims who support slavery, when we have this unaccomplished tall, slim man-child everyone can act ridiculous about? Cindy, you are just, sooo unfashionable!
Hat tip to "The Religion of Peace" website -- and you might wish to surf over there to review their statistics on just how much "peace" has developed in the world over recent months since the Chosen One arrived on the scene. The right-side headline list is always good for inspiration and confidence building.
The Dynamite Prize was questionable when a top Nominee on their short-list in 1938 was Adolf Hitler -- yes, running the Jews out of Europe was considered a real boost for World Peace by all the intellectuals. Hitler didn't win, but was so inspired he invaded Poland and the rest of Europe. Another notable Nobel was Le Duc Tho, the communist liar who got so peace-inspired he broke every treaty agreement with the evil USA, stimulating utopian Marxist genocide across Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. Then it was given to the appeasing Jew-hater Jimmy Carter, who endorsed the Ayatollah's genocidal-dictatorship in Iran (a "spiritual revolution" didn't you know), and got the Israelis to hand over a giant chunk of Egypt their military acquired after beating off yet the 5th War of Extermination launched against them by the collective Muslim world -- in return the Israelis got.... well... basically nothing but empty promises. Then yet another Ignoble Prize went to the Dean of Terrorists, Yassir Arafat, after more arm-twisting of the Israelis brought him right into their midst. This time, the Israelis got... well... nothing but more empty promises. And what wonderful peace came from that! Well, I suppose for 2009 they figured the Jews had pretty much run out of spare land to give away to the Islamic terror brigades, following the last peace gesture they made, giving all of Gaza to the Hamas head-choppers... And giving one to Ahamedinejad was probably controversial, even though he did promise to make world peace by wiping Israel off the map. Some years ago, the critical situation of war-mongering in Iran was put under consideration, and so a peace prize was given to Muhammed al-Baradei, the UN Nuclear Arms inspector who helped both North Korea and Iran to develop their atomic weapon's programs. That was just after the prize went to Kofi Annan, head of the UN who helped Saddam Hussein so nicely, to divert the "oil for food" program into an "oil for palaces" program, wherein many thousands died of malnutrition and shortage of hospital medicines. But this year, they decided, why not really do it right, and give a peace prize to the man who has publicly kissed more Islamic foot, hugged more communist dictators, and made more historically-inaccurate and wonked-out anti-American speeches than any other!
If history is any judge, when the Nobel committee starts handing out prizes for peace to people who haven't earned any, and who are simply making more appeasement talk, its time to run for shelter, as all the dictators and war-criminals of the world certainly are taking note and measure. Iranian youth were already abandoned to the Mullah-sharks by our prize-winner, as were the Hondurans thrown overboard for daring to eject a Marxist tyrant, even while fist-bumps and smiley-face back-pats were exchanged with other Marxist tyrants. Poland and the Czechs were snubbed in favor of Putin and the restored KGB, which certainly made the people of Ukraine and Georgia feel like, well, they were about to join the big happy Russian family once again. The people in Afghanistan now stand to benefit greatly, with the new appeasement-accommodations to the Talibans, who have promised nearly everyone a field-side seat in the Kabul soccer stadium (and if you don't know what that means, educate your ignorant self). The burka-manufacturing companies are very happy indeed. The Red Chinese and North Koreans are also quite happy about it, already grinning, and looking southward, very pleased with this "peace prize". All around Saharasia, every war-criminal and throat-cutting tyrant is very appreciative of the Nobel committee.
And interestingly, we also now have the APA and ACOG getting ready to reverse their prior stands against male genital mutilations, and in fact may push for mandatory circumcision of all baby boys. That's in the USA folks, not Africa where already the WHO and CDC are pushing hard for this. It "prevents AIDS" didn't you know -- that surely will be sufficiently scary, like a Holloween Monster, to frighten everyone into mutilating their genitals, or those of their chidren... right?? Plus, under the new Health-Care laws, it will all be Free! Also all the new vaccines which everyone is scrambling to get -- except for 40% of all parents and 25% of all health-care workers, who have become "deniers" and "refuseniks" for questioning the Divine Wisdom of the CDC -- they also will be so economical, you couldn't possibly refuse them. Literally. They will be mandatory, and you'll go to prison and have your kids taken away by HHS if you refuse. Lots of new Medical Police-State initiatives on the drawing board! Just like the good old days when the FDA was jailing medical pioneers like Wilhelm Reich, and burning their books. All that good news, in addition to the new "hate speech" laws, which will make it illegal to write or say anything even remotely anti-Muslim or even anti-pedophile. Good that I write this now, before the new internet laws would make it a federal crime.
Isn't change wonderful?
Meanwhile, here's Mark Steyn's take on the Man-Child Messiah-Virus currently sweeping across our insane planet, and for which no vaccine is presently known. One interesting statistic he reveals is, that the deadline for the Nobel committee nominations was early February. Which means, the Prize was based upon the Blessed-One's Great Accomplishments in the first 12 days of office.
Here's Spencer's take, reviewing Poller:
The curse of interesting times.
