The following video arse-kicking of left-wing TV news numbskulls by someone with on-the-ground experience, education, common sense and the ability to concisely state his position says much more than the five minutes it takes.
Niall Ferguson (website here) perhaps the only non left-wing ideologue professor at Harvard and Yale, schools MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski on everything from the worst foreign policy president in history to chiding her for her belief that “happy clappy” pictures from Cairo prove that the “democratic revolution” is wildly successful and that Obama should get credit for bringing it all about. (For TV types pictures—photoshopped or not—are about as deep as they get in the news gathering process; it’s a minimalist Rorschach test, one they cobble together images they like… they broadcast it as news.
Mika is clearly stunned that an Ivy League prof talks and believes like this.
Better than anyone else and in less time, Ferguson destroys the loony left with common sense, and further exposes most television “journalism” as little more than a Hollywood set in front of which highly-paid actors read teleprompters…. which means that that Barack Hussein Obama will have a lucrative career after leaving he White House.
Send this to your friends and especially those who see her and Rachel Madcow as the truth, the way and the light… and still have that Obama ‘08 bumper sticker displayed.
Statements brought to you by Hillary Hussein Clinton’s “smart diplomacy”:
- Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has refused to admit that the Muslim Brotherhood is an Islamist organization; “The term ‘Muslim Brotherhood’…is an umbrella term for a variety of movements, in the case of Egypt, a very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence and has decried Al Qaeda as a perversion of Islam.”
- American Thinker: Why would Juliette Kayyem who Barack Obama appointed Homeland Security Assistant Secretary, advocate American cable companies carry the AL Jazeera a network that cannot help but inflame tensions and anger and one that is not known for unbiased accuracy.
- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she welcomed the inclusion of the Muslim Brotherhood with other opposition groups in talks with the Egyptian government on Sunday. "Today we learned the Muslim Brotherhood decided to participate, which suggests they at least are now involved in the dialogue that we have encouraged."
- Arizona Sen. John McCain said, “Egyptian revolution a “repudiation of al Qaeda,” and praised the peaceful nature of the protests demanding Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s ouster.
Issam Al Aryan, spokesperson of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, said in an interview that the MB wants to legislate Shariah law, with court supervision, of course.
A top Muslim Brotherhood official announced in an interview this weekend that the organization wants Sharia law in Egypt.
Islam in Europe reported:
The Rubin Report added: The Muslim Brotherhood’s aim is to restore a caliphate, a global religious government aimed at fighting the `non-believers’ (specifically, Christians, Hindus, and Jews) and at spreading Islam. The group opposed the existence of any secular states in all Muslim societies throughout the Middle East.
Former U.S. Ambassador to the UN John Bolton condemned President Obama as “weak” and “indecisive” on foreign affairs while speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference Saturday; adding specifically, “We don’t have the leadership in the White House that can deal with it.”
