Chopra: Attack prompts tough questions [Islamists attacked b/c they're worried about Obama!]
CNN ^ | November 26, 2008

Posted on 11/27/2008 10:05:52 AM PST by Constitutionalist Conservative

[...jump to the middle of the transcript...]

The situation is complex, Larry, because it could inflame to proportions that we cannot even imagine. It has to be contained. We now recognize that this is a global problem, with only a global effort can solve this.

And you know, one of the things that I think is happening is that these militant terrorist groups are actually terrified that [President-elect Barack] Obama's gestures to the rest of the Muslim world may actually overturn the tables on them by alienating them from the rest of the Muslim world, so they're reacting to this.

You know, this is Obama's opportunity to actually harness the help of the Muslims.

You know, there's 1.8 billion Muslims in the world. That's 25 percent of the population of the world. It's the fastest-growing religion in the world. We cannot, if we do not appease and actually recruit the help of this Muslim world, we're going to have a problem on our hands.

And we cannot go after the wrong people, as we did after 9/11, because then the whole collateral damage that occurs actually aggravates the situation.

[...etc.... including an attempt at moral equivalence between the Americans and the Islamists (War on Terror = oxymoron)]

This was an act of desperation, because the Islamists are worried that Obama will turn the rank-and-file Muslims against them. Is there nothing that the Big O can't do?

The rank and file Moslems are going to be really disappointed. The Big O is more concerned with the guys who can put on a big spread when he sits down to personally negotiate with them.

Error, the REAL FASTEST growing religion in the world is NOT ISLAM but the CHRISTIANITY. The global south where it is growing by leaps and bounds proves it.

Get rid of the phrase "war on terrorism." Ask for a creative solution in which we all participate.

Ah, now we are getting closer to it...

You know, terrorists call mechanized death from 35,000 feet above sea level with a press of a button also terror. We don't call it that, because our soldiers are wearing uniforms. They don't see what is happening, and innocent people are being killed. So, you know, terror is a term that you apply to the other.

There we are. Finally got there at the end of the article. - The Americans are the terrorists.

The Indian TV news station IBN (IBN Live in English) tried to float the delusion that the attacks were “against Americans but carried out on Indian soil”.

IBN is a proud partner and even shares an onscreen logo with...

....you guessed it!....CNN!

They attacked because they know that once Bush is gone - and he has already bowed out - there’s nothing to fear from the US. Heck, Obama probably tipped them off. The guy hates us and all of our allies and wants to bring us down. I can’t imagine what is going to happen to this country or the rest of the world in the next year or so.

The wack job crack pot fraudster had this to say about Governor Palin:

"She is the reverse of Barack Obama, in essence his shadow, deriding his idealism and exhorting people to obey their worst impulses. In psychological terms the shadow is that part of the psyche that hides out of sight, countering our aspirations, virtue, and vision with qualities we are ashamed to face: anger, fear, revenge, violence, selfishness, and suspicion of "the other." For millions of Americans, Obama triggers those feelings, but they don't want to express them. He is calling for us to reach for our higher selves, and frankly, that stirs up hidden reactions of an unsavory kind. (Just to be perfectly clear, I am not making a verbal play out of the fact that Sen. Obama is black. The shadow is a metaphor widely in use before his arrival on the scene.) I recognize that psychological analysis of politics is usually not welcome by the public, but I believe such a perspective can be helpful here to understand Palin's message. In her acceptance speech Gov. Palin sent a rousing call to those who want to celebrate their resistance to change and a higher vision."

Yes, Sarah Palin is the reverse of Barack Obama, but it is he who is the 'shadow'.

He is WAY out of his depth, and that's evident by the people with which he's populating his Cabinet. They're political re-treads; certainly not any agents of change, because being socialist isn't change, it's been there all along in the upper echelons of the Democrat Party.

Deepak Chopra was a kill-Terri (Schiavo) proponent. He is definitely not on the side of life. The man is a fraud. I am conducting my own little boycott of him.

Just who made Chopra a U.S. security advisor? He needs to shut up and Larry King needs to retire ASAP.

Deepak Chopra has turned from a spiritual philosopher into an ardent islamist and if memory serves me right is a founder of a huge mosque planned for New York, which ran into some trouble when the project director turned out to be a terror linked jihadist.

Deepak is brilliant...he has made a multi million dollar fortune with his Indian accent new age crapola.

Ha. What a scum...He has a hard time keeping a straight face on when he spouts this warmed over Maharishi pablum sold to stoned hippies decades ago.

From the article:

Maybe he can begin convincing the peoples of other religions to stop aborting the next generation? Otherwise, the West will never keep up.

WTF? You gotta be kidding me. Terrified? Overturn the tables? I'm laughing so hard my stomach hurts.

"May actually"? Chopra, your obviously trying to convince yourself to believe your own horse crap ... It doesn't sound like your overly confident about what your spouting off; idiot.

Chopra sees the world like looking at a photographic negative. Where there is light he sees darkness. Where there is darkness he sees light.

When it comes to Dharma he talks a great game. He knows all the concepts and buzz words but it should be apparent to any serious practitioner that he has no actual experiential realization. His words tell me that his mind stream has been poisoned by his own spiritual practice. That is the biggest downfall of all.

Deepak Chopra = FAIL!

Thank you. It's a bad enough fault to turn one's own spiritual practice on its head but Chopra is misleading a multitude of others and charging them a premium price for the privilege. He's digging a karmic hole for himself with a dragline bucket.

Go post. Thanks. I recognize that psychological analysis of politics is usually not welcome by the public

Actually, psych analysis of politics might be welcome by the public if it wasn't perpetrated by Chopra and other psych frauds like him. However, isn't it funny that psychs always seem to side with the leftists?
