I think I prefer a Real Llama
A ranch nearby has a couple dozen llamas and I always enjoy driving by.
However this Dalai Lama fellow, really tees me off.
"Still I am a Marxist," the exiled Tibetan Buddhist leader said in New York, where he arrived today with an entourage of robed monks and a heavy security detail to give a series of paid public lectures.
Ann Althouse links, suggesting "'[...] only how to make profits.' Only. Only improving the lives of millions."
I had always put Mister Lama into the "mostly harmless" bucket, that his calls for a more spiritual existence were nicely balanced by his high moral standing attacks against Chinese repression of Tibet and laogais. Let him chant, he's not hurting anybody.
Well now he is hurting people, championing the political system that enslaved his country and outlawed his religion, over the one that feeds the world and provides a foundation for human liberty, dignity, and prosperity. Thanks, ThreeSourcers, I don't know anywhere where I can say this: "MISERABLE, FUCKING DALAI LAMA!!!"
