"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Newsweek Sinks to New Low: Claims Chinese Oppression is Good for Tibet

Newsweek is claiming that Tibet is better off under the yoke of China. Isaac Stone Fish made this outrageous claim in his article "Charity Case."

Newsbusters has their take here in a post by Kyle Drennan.

Yup, those Tibetans just don't know what's good for them. I mean sure, they have to chafe under China's tyrannical rule and have their culture, history and religion systematically and violently stripped away by an invading foreign power... But I guess that's just the price you have to pay to be forcibly pulled into the Chinese co-prosperity sphere.

Once again we see the Left exposing their elitist core. When Bill Maher says things like: "They're not bright enough to really understand the issues. But like an animal, they can sort of sense strength or weakness. They can smell it on you." He's giving the the same line of thought that Fish in Newsweek gives the Tibetans. We're all just proles. Too stupid to know what's best for us, too stupid to be allowed to little things like liberty and self-determination. We need strength to lead us.

I'll repeat Lincoln's quote that I have posted earlier. "They are the arguments that kings have made for enslaving the people in all ages of the world. You will find that all the arguments in favor of king-craft were of this class; they always bestrode the necks of the people, not that they wanted to do it, but because the people were better off for being ridden. That is their argument, and this argument of the Judge is the same old serpent that says you work and I eat, you toil and I will enjoy the fruits of it."

Words to remember.


  1. Nothing says love like violent oppression!

  2. This is just disgusting.

    When it comes to human nature, there is nothing new under the sun, which Lincoln well understood, and he's been proven right over and over again in the century and a half since his death.

    Just saw a photo of the Dalai Lama being escorted out the back door of the White House past piles of black trash bags waiting for pickup. Just what the Chinese government wanted to see. The Dalai Lama was unperturbed: he clearly doesn't sweat the small stuff. And maybe he was a happy camper just leaving the White House, which, with its present occupants, cannot provide much in the way of a pleasant atmosphere. But when I saw that photo I wanted to weep, and inside myself, I did weep.
