Dalai Lama: I ♥ Bush

January 20, 2009

From CMR:

A couple of recent quotes from the liberals favorite religious figure. (He is only their favorite because they don’t actually listen to what he says).

First quote: “I love President George W Bush.” That is a real quote from the Dalai Lama on Saturday.

Second Quote: On Terrorists “Kill the Bastards” Ok he didn’t actually use those words. But he conceded that peace doesn’t work with these folks.

“It is difficult to deal with terrorism through non-violence,” the Tibetan spiritual leader said delivering the Madhavrao Scindia Memorial Lecture here.

He also termed terrorism as the worst kind of violence which is not carried by a few mad people but by those who are very brilliant and educated.

“They (terrorists) are very brilliant and educated…but a strong ill feeling is bred in them. Their minds are closed,” the Dalai Lama said.

He said that the only way to tackle terrorism is through prevention. The head of the Tibetan government-in-exile left the audience stunned when he said “I love President George W Bush.” He went on to add how he and the US President instantly struck a chord in their first meeting unlike politicians who take a while to develop close ties.

This is just the latest in a long line of statements by the Dalai Lama that would be despised by the lefties.

I am reposting this video from last year that made me laugh. Australian TV host John Safran playing a little game of who said this? The big, bad, authoritarian Pope or the cute and cudly Dalai Lama.
