"Obama's Victory" from The London Daily Mail

This is what one paper from across the pond thinks about Barack Obama's elevation to President of the United States.

An editorial from the London Daily Mail 

Obama's Victory

A victory for the hysterical Oprah Winfrey, the mad racist preacher Jeremiah
Wright, the mainstream media who abandoned any sense of objectivity long
ago, Europeans who despise America largely because they depend on her,
comics who claim to be dangerous and fearless, but would not dare attack
genuinely powerful special interest groups.

A victory for Obama-worshippers everywhere. A victory for the cult of the
cult. A man who has done little with his life but has written about his
achievements as if he had found the cure for cancer in between winning a
marathon and building a nuclear reactor with his teeth. Victory for style
over substance, hyperbole over history, rabble-raising [sic] over reality.

A victory for Hollywood , the most dysfunctional community in the world.
Victory for Streisand, Spielberg, Soros, and Sarandon.

Victory for those who prefer welfare to will and interference to
independence. For those who settle for group-think and herd mentality rather
than those who fight for individual initiative and the right to be out of
step with meager political fashion.

Victory for a man who is no friend of freedom. He and his people have
already stated that media have to be controlled so as to be balanced,
without realizing the extraordinary irony within that statement. Like most
liberal zealots, the Obama worshippers constantly speak of Fox and Limbaugh,
when the vast bulk of television stations and newspapers are extremely
liberal and anti-conservative. Senior Democrat Chuck Schumer said that just
as pornography should be censored, so should talk radio. In other words, one
of the few free and open means of popular expression may well be cornered
and beaten by bullies who even in triumph cannot tolerate any criticism and

A victory for those who believe the state is better qualified to raise
children than the family, for those who prefer teachers' unions to teaching
and for those who are naively convinced that if the West is sufficiently
weak towards its enemies, war and terror will dissolve as quickly as the
tears on the face of a leftist celebrity.

A victory for social democracy even after most of Europe has come to the
painful conclusion that social democracy leads to mediocrity, failure,
unemployment, inflation, higher taxes and economic stagnation. A victory for
intrusive lawyers, banal sentimentalists, social extremists and urban snobs.

Congratulations, America !

  1. I just saw on the tv news that more oregon natonal guard soldiers are being sent to iraq. Boy thats's some real "change" there Mr B.O. President. Earlier this year the U.S. government opened their massive new embassy in Iraq, thus revealing America is planning to stay there for decades. This will be used as their 'headquarters' for war operations in the middle east and for possible military actions against Iran or any other nation in or near the middle east.
