Well, he certainly is when it comes to islam.

Three men were waiting at a bus stop: a Cowboy, an Indian and a Muslim.

The Muslim said to the Indian, “How come there are so many more Muslims now than hundreds of years ago, and yet there are so many fewer Indians than hundreds of years ago?”

The Cowboy tilted up his hat, adjusted his tooth pick and said, “That’s cause we ain’t played Cowboys and Muslims yet.”

It’s snowing again, I’m low on firewood so I am burning my departed mothers hardcover library of celebrity bios and political scandals as a supplement. They have languished since an unsuccessful yardsale some years back, in my garage.

I will tell my grandchildren that because of Al Gore I burned books back in the winter of ’08 to keep warm.

Hardcover books turn into strange blocks of cherry red with little flame. They last a good time but do not compress like wood ash does.

Entelechy on March 31, 2008 at 11:06 PM

“Civilizationphobia”. I like the idea, but let’s follow the rules for a proper neologism (not mixing Latin & Greek, as here). Let’s call it politismophobia (πολιτισμός being the word for “civilization”).

As for peccatophobia (which I realize is attested), that should really be hamartiophobia.

“People living 500 years from now will look back on this period of history and laugh at us.”

If the world turns out to be ruled by Sharia in the future there won’t even be so much as a crystal radio by that time.

The only memories will be of the glorious jihad by five centuries from now.

But hey way off in the future if your mother in law gives you a ration…ssshftt.

This is great stuff, Condell is so right.

It makes me remember a question posed by Ms. Coulter:
“Why do liberals always use political correctness concerning Islam? They hate all the groups usually thought of as liberal – gays, women, minorities!” This video speaks volumes about the disgusting intolerance found in extremist Islamic societies.

PS – It is against HA rules to quote Karl Marx.

FLcapitalistthug on March 31, 2008 at 11:56 PM

I had never heard of or seen this guy before. He certainly captures the essence of the religion of peace and tolerance.

An American patriot once said give me liberty or give me death…I hope there are many around the world who agree or we are in serious trouble. They believe in the use of violence and breed like rabbits…we may have to break out the crowd pleasers in the near future…unless of course western society decides freedom is not worth fighting for.

I fear for the future…load up on the guns and ammo folks. Steyn is right…the US of A stands alone while Europe appeases these animals and our dhimmicrats are in lock stp with them….man i’m depressed…time for bed.

jwp1964 on March 31, 2008 at 11:56 PM

I’m a woman and believe me I have no fear of fighting any islomofacist 7th century throwback to protect my faith or my rights. The muslims try this crap here and they’re going to hear it from a whole lot of us and it won’t be any apologizing I’ll tell you that. We are not EU we are U S A!

Well this stuff just makes me mad ;(

CCRWM on April 1, 2008 at 12:28 AM

Right on, Condell! I’ve seen a few of your other videos, too. This is what should be on our MSM networks, if they wanted to save themselves.

Here’s a drinking game that will put you out of your misery right fast: take a swig every time Condell sneers “threat of violence”. You’ll be racked out and snoring before he’s halfway through his rant.

Perhaps, but he’s also right.
When one is correct, while most of the world is living in denial, a certain amount of pomposity is in order.

Alalazoo on April 1, 2008 at 4:05 AM

sad but true…when life and peace is the most important thing in the world values and ideas become meaningless. If you are not prepared to die for your freedoms you are destined to lose them…the really sad part is that are laws forbid mush of islam practice in the WEst but in a bitter irony we have allowed newer laws to trump those laws and be used against us….war will come it is a given..just wondering how bas it will be and if human civilazation can survive the coming war..

unseen on April 1, 2008 at 4:43 AM

Faust makes Pat Condell look like Ibrahim Cooper.

PS: He is married to an Omani, is a lifelong soldier/spook, and all his kids are half Arab. He is not a “racist.” But I think you could say he is a “culturist.”

You nailed it, TheBigOldDog. The war is not coming, it is here. Condell is a little late to the party and I don’t think he is much of a fighter. Condell couldn’t hold the jock strap of our most cowardly servicemen in Iraq.

The Chinese can sit back and wait for the jihadists to soften up Europe and the Americas and then walk into Times Square and take over.

Sloan Morganstern on April 1, 2008 at 8:51 AM

Well yes. They’re at a different phase in their development than us. Their affluence is just beginning, so their liberalism is just beginnning. You can see it in how they dealt with the latest Tibet uprising. They fought the protesters in a way we won’t/can’t anymore in the West, yet at the same time, are now under great pressure because they want to be cute little pandas in time for the Olympics.

If the Chinese are gonna crush the Muslims, again (Mongols sacked Baghdad), it would have to happen in the next generation, or probably won’t at all.

Islam may be a virus, inflicting damage on unsuspecting hosts, but so is liberalism. Europe has both viruses, we’re getting the Islam virus bit by bit now. China has little of both (Uighurs and Liberalism) but there’s little doubt that its begun taking root there.

The young Dali Lama’s first trip to Beijing when he was “summoned” by Mao and given his marching orders will not be repeated. The Chinese will have no choice but to “negotiate” something with the Tibetans. So if you’re looking for them to either save the world from Islam, or take us over, they better start moving. Pretty soon their own libs won’t stand for it.

Um, Allah, why do you post the “work” of Pat Condell, when he repeatedly tells the Jews they should leave Israel and makes the false claim that “Jerusalem is and has always been an Arab city”? In the video in which he makes those claims, he also makes a number of statements that are anti-Semitic. Is featuring a guy who says some of the right things on Islam okay, despite the fact that he’s bought into Islam’s view of the Jews and Israel?

Debbie Schlussel on April 1, 2008 at 9:58 AM

Debbie Schlussel on April 1, 2008 at 9:58 AM

Yes it is ok. AP doesn’t have to agree with everything Condell says. I certainly don’t. But he’s right on Islam.

Connie on April 1, 2008 at 10:16 AM

It’s time we stop quoting this “1.5 billion muslims” nonsesne. How many of the “1.5 billion” were given a choice? In most of these countries it’s Islam or else!!!

When these nations cease being “muslim nations”, and their citizens are free to join whatever religion – without fear of death – then I wll be willing to accept their numbers. Until then I reject this ” 1.5 billion” number.

Correct. I do not trust the message when I do not messenger. AP is free to believe Condell, but you are most correct to point out Condell’s broader views on “Jews” and Israel. Condell’s views on Islam needed context. Judge for yourself. I’m no fan of Condell. A poor man’s Carlin.

Angry Dumbo on April 1, 2008 at 12:45 PM

Angry Dumbo on April 1, 2008 at 12:45 PM

Exactly. You get it. And he’s a carbon copy of Christopher Hitchens, a despicable man whom desperate conservatives embarrassingly glom onto merely because they agree with him on Iraq and the Clintons. Pat Condell is an anti-Semite and anti-Israel. Some people will be in awe by anyone just because he has an English accent. It’s frightening.

Debbie Schlussel on April 1, 2008 at 1:12 PM

Condell is not being idolized here. I’m not a Hitchens fan either, but it doesn’t mean he can’t be correct on something.

You use the tools you have, even when they’re tools.

Some people will be in awe by anyone just because he has an English accent.

No one at Hot Air is that stupid. Chill out.

Connie on April 1, 2008 at 1:51 PM

Debbie Schlussel on April 1, 2008 at 1:12 PM

Thank you that means a lot. I am a great admirer of your work. As for Condell and Hitchens, I could not agree more. Like a math problem where the student has the right answer, but does not provide an equation that led them to their answer. Hitchens and Condell equate the religious right in the U.S. with militant Islam. These atheists hold Christians, Jews, and Muslims in equal contempt. To applaud him when he turns his guns onto Islam is to ignore their entire frame of reference. Ideas matter, words matter, context matters.

Angry Dumbo on April 1, 2008 at 3:31 PM

Angry Dumbo on April 1, 2008 at 3:31 PM

Right on, again. Exactly. Forgot to mention what you did, that Condell is anti-Christian, too, and in fact, equates Christians and Jews with Muslims.

Buttercup on April 1, 2008 at 5:43 PM

Condell is the proverbial stopped clock that is correct twice a day. On this issue, he is dead on. I long for the day when we can have a leader in the Western world who is confident enough to say these things as well. Clearly, I can think of not one “leader” who would even acknowledge that this man has a point, much less agree with it. And, of course, it goes without saying, they ALL know he’s telling the truth… the only difference is that they are cowards, and he is not. And yes, I’m speaking of McCain and Bush and Rice and Romney and the Clintons and Pelosi and
… well, you get the point.
