The Dalai Lama will be speaking at Nova Southeastern on Tuesday.
You can bet his audience will consist of fawning intellectual oafs. These fans of His Holiness — they are paying up to $400 per ticket to the sold-out event – deny what Tibet was like under the Delai Lama and his equally dictatorial predecessors.
No matter what he did, the Dalai Lama gets a free pass. Every evil he stands for has been subjected to virtual worldwide amnesia.
No matter what he says, it is viewed as a cross between The Sermon on the Mount and the Gettysburg Address.
It is a sad state of affairs that the only country that speaks the truth is The People’s Republic of China.
His latest public view was coming to the White House as he sought sympathy by proclaiming that he is “the unluckiest Dalai Lama” because he is not able to live in Tibet.
Based on 300 years of the 14 Dalai Lamas, his bad luck is the good luck of the Tibetan people.
Their rule was a theological dictatorship complete with a serf-based culture that kept 95% or the population illiterate and in involuntary servitude.
Slave sales were the order of the day as was torture and execution for dissenters.
Sitting at the head of this abomination was the Dalai Lama, who resided in a sumptuous palace offering the theological rationalization of karma. Karma says we are where we are because of how we lived in a prior life.
Karma is easy to believe in when you’re the one in the palace.
In this country, The Right likes him because he is viewed as anti-communist. The Left likes him because they have bought into Hollywood’s image from The Lost Horizon combined with New Age bullshit.
Some days it seems that the only people speaking the truth about him are me along, with Showtime’s Penn and Teller.
