Obama winsWhat I said in 2008:
I may be wrong, but it strikes me that Obama's election is the greatest victory for the global jihad since 9/11 in 2001. And the greatest success for the western left since the fall of Vietnam in 1975. And the greatest success for the western media since the fall of Vietnam.
Around the world, those many millions who hate America and want it to fail are celebrating an Obama win. Around the world, those many millions who say they like America, but want it weak and unaggressive, are celebrating an Obama win.
Around the world, those few foreigners who want America to lead the world, who want American victory against its enemies, who want America to be strong and aggressive in defence of our shared western civilization, are worried and fearful about what the American people are doing.
Just kidding, of course.
But it's important to get started early.

The world reacts
America's enemies react to Obama winAmerica's enemies understand Obama, even if the American voter doesn't.
The jihad continues
Is it in bad taste to criticise the American people's decision?Most of the American right want to hold back from criticising the people's choice for a few weeks or even months. Yes, democracy is sacred. The vote must be respected. But there's nothing wrong with criticising it. The American right never held back from criticising the Spanish people's choice after Madrid (nor should they). The American left (and all of Europe) didn't wait one day before attacking the American people's choice in 2004 (nor should they). Front page British newspapers even called the American people stupid the next day.
So enough with such blatant hypocrisy and double standards. As a non-American I feel no need to hold back from saying what I would say about any western country that elected a leader like this. The American right will soon be saying the same thing as me anyway.
I feel as if the Penguin has won.
42 year old Obama supporter celebrates: "This is the first day in my life I actually feel this funny sense of pride about my country. It's a very foreign feeling". If people like that are happy, this election must be very bad news indeed.
Margaret Thatcher - At last, a woman as Prime Minister!
Lefties and feminists - did you dance in the streets when Thatcher won? Wasn't it fantastic to have the first female Prime Minister? No? You didn't celebrate? You didn't care that she was a woman? You cared what her policies were? Well now you understand why I don't celebrate today. Now do you understand? I don't care that Obama's black. I care what his policies are. And that's why I do not celebrate his election. I think it is a disaster.

What I said before the election:
America is about to make a terrible mistakeIncredibly, in the wake of the economic crisis, America looks set to elect Barack Obama, the most left-wing president ever. Obama is an orthodox leftist with a long history of links to anti-Americans of all types, both secular and Islamist. He has many links to radical, anti-American Islamists. He has attended a radical, left-wing, anti-American church for 20 years. He has associated with radical, left-wing domestic terrorists for over 10 years. He is ranked the no.1 most left-wing senator in the Senate. He has always been a left-wing defeatist in the war against Islamist terror, and in office he is likely to make America lose it. In particular, he is likely to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in Iraq.
Everything in his past tells us that Obama will lose the Iraq War. If Americans want to see their country weak and humbled, its military betrayed, its allies on the ground massacred, and its enemies rampant and triumphant, then vote for Obama. There's a pretty good chance he'll bring that about. Whereas with McCain, there is no chance at all that will happen.
I guess the voters are blaming the Republicans for the economic crisis, and they're not thinking about foreign policy at all. It looks like a lucky, lucky year for America's enemies. I'd be surprised if Americans really are naive enough to vote for Obama. Let's hope they make the right decision.
Obama's election will excite America's enemies
McCain responds to Joe Biden, who openly said, Oct 2008, that an Obama/Biden victory will make America's enemies excited, and they will move to "test" this naive, inexperienced young man. (Whereas no such "test" will take place with McCain, since America's enemies know what the result would be.) Thank you Joe for telling the truth. America's enemies can't wait for an Obama victory.

Obama's links to terrorists
Sarah Palin, Oct 2008, criticises Obama for his links to terrorists.
"Our opponent is someone who sees America as imperfect enough to pal around with terrorists who targeted their own country."
Palin is more qualified than Obama
The inexperienced Obama responds, 1 Sept 2008, to the (obviously true) statement that Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin is more qualified than him. For some reason he talks about her previous job as a small town mayor rather than her current job as Governor of Alaska (25,000 employees, budget of $10 billion). Hilariously, Obama argues that he is more qualified than a Governor of a state because he has run an election campaign!

Sarah Palin, 2008 convention speech, 3 Sept 2008, replies to Obama: "Before I became governor of the great state of Alaska, I was mayor of my hometown. And since our opponents in this presidential election seem to look down on that experience, let me explain to them what the job involves. I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a "community organizer," except that you have actual responsibilities."
Palin on Obama: "This is a man who can give an entire speech about the wars America is fighting, and never use the word "victory" except when he's talking about his own campaign."
Barack ObamaYes, he's young, cool, fit, handsome and black. Yes, it would be a nice statement to have a black President. But none of this is a good enough reason to vote for him. Politics should be about ideas, not about style.
Obama will lose the Iraq WarIf we talk about substance, Obama is no Reagan or JFK. He is a bog-standard left-wing defeatist. They weren't.
Victory is coming in Iraq.
And Obama wants to throw it all away.

"for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country".

The Epic of ObamaclesFrom here. Replaces older version.
"When Obamacles reached the shores of Chicago, he saw no monsters; Yet its bone-strewn sands announced a land of many unseen dangers. And though he be clever, Obamacles did not understand his task, ... "Community organizer?" he wondered, "What the fuck is that?" And yet he pushed from house to house, offering to organize the people, But lo, the Southside people shunned him, slamming doors and mocking sad Obamacles. "O people of Chicago, why do you shun me so?" he lamented. "I have a bachelor's degree and I am here to organize you.""
"The Jeremiad was astonished by the boldness of Obamacles and his clever flattery. He said: "You have much bravery for a white man, Obamacles. But to become an authentic brother, you must prove your worthiness in the torments of the pews." Hour after hour, Sunday after Sunday, year after year, Obamacles stood before Jeremiad And the other monsters of the pulpit, Phlegeron and Mekus, withstanding their bellows of fire, Never blinking or flinching, and seldom falling asleep. The Jeremiad was pleased and and absolved Obamacles of his whiteness, and allowing him to finally organize the community."
"the strange mutant beasts of this Isle of the Damned soon were transfixed by their enchantments: Ayres, the decrepit conjurer of fireballs; his wife Doron, worshipper of murderers; Rezko, Philistine Lord of the Pits of Slumos; ... And all of the monsters of the Pulpit from Jeremiad to Pherekon. Obamacles had conquered all of the Chicagomon"
"Obamacles ... knew the people of Demos longed to return to the White Temple, where they had been banished by the idiot emperor Chimpos II. Although the Demos knew that Chimpos was the stupidest person in the world, and they were the smartest, they had somehow been unable to defeat him."
""I will conjure our Spartans back from Babylonia," said Obamacles. "Hilldusa voted with Chimpos. I say it is time to begin the war to end this war." The words of Obamacles created a murmur in the agora, for on Demos the people wished the Spartans home from war, to face trial for war crimes or be caged as madmen. Like in the many tragedies at the Demos Odeon Octoplex."
"Obamacles was taking no chances for the general battle; He had no more further use for the Chicagomon and thus he summoned Underbus, the destroyer of memes. One by one he disposed them, The Jeremiad and Phlegeron and Ayres, all sacrificed to Underbus."
"wily Crustius had a secret trick up his toga. From his rock-strewn shipwreck he summoned Palina, huntress of Wasilla, Whose fertile loins had many odd-named children bore, ... And yet she retained the visage and figure of a goddess. Palina emerged from the sea, ... Brandishing the spear that had slain a thousand antlered beasts. Once mutinous, the Crustonauts were instantly heartened, For now they sensed a chance at victory."
"Although his pollsters warned of danger, Obamacles was stalwart .. "Attack," he beckoned very calmly, And from across the land of Soros, a thousand score of demons answered; HuffPo nutjobs, New York Kronos, the shrieking hags of talk TV, Couric, Fey, Oprah, Behar, the hermaphrodites of NBC."
"Now behold him, brave Obamacles, Who strides triumphant down Pennsylvania Avenue, ... "All hail Obamacles!" they cry, "Master of Bullshit, Vicelord of the Chicagomon, Slayer of Hildusa, Vanquisher of Palina. You are our new and shiny hope, a true god amongst mortals.""
"And yet once more the Oracle appears to Obamacles, ... The Oracle spoke out from the depths of the guacamole: "I bid thee welcome to the White House where your true test now begins: ... A world of of evil filled with monsters, who are unmoved by flowery talk, Invulnerable to race cards or leftwing blogger insults, Who Hope for Change in megatons. Do not despair! For look before you, The noble army who brought you here: Thespians and hiphop moguls, Graphic artists, hipster twats, The academic scribes of Athens, basic cable sycophants. These are the arrows in your quiver, for the coming epic tests; ... Good luck with that, well-spoken hero, I think I'll grab a snack and watch.""

The left and Sarah Palin
I'm not really a Palin fan. Apart from anything else, she has said little about foreign policy.
From Andrew Sullivan down, I really can't stand the people who hate her.
Sadly, the first black President is a left-wing defeatistYes it is a nice historical statement to have a black President. But why does it have to be a defeatist left-winger?
Maybe you (are thick and) think I was against Obama because he's black. So this is for you. Here are some people who I think would be good Presidents, rather than the standard leftist defeatist Obama.
But I am not happy with Barack Obama as President. Why? Because of his ideas. They are standard left-wing defeatist ideas. I didn't agree with them before Obama came along, and I still don't agree with them.
"As I wrote often, the election of the "healer" Barack Obama, I felt, would make racial relations worse, despite the bipartisan appreciation of his historical candidacy. Why? Obama had, by his voting record, proven the most partisan Senator in Congress. His career in Chicago was predicated on racial-identity politics. His 20-year membership in the racist Rev. Wright's pulpit was predicated on the need for establishing street credibility and racialist credentials. ... In other words, I thought it would be very difficult for a candidate who had seen problems in terms of racial identity to transcend his past, however elegant and moving the rhetoric. In contrast, there are dozens of major black political figures, and, I believe, the vast majority of Americans of all races, who see race as incidental rather than essential to their personas."
