Video: “We Con the World”

posted at 8:21 pm on June 3, 2010 by Allahpundit

By popular request (half a dozen e-mails in the past hour or so), some gallows humor to cleanse the palate. My only quibble with the joke is that the flotilla isn’t really a “con.” No one, including Israel’s critics, was seriously fooled into thinking they were on a bona fide humanitarian mission; even Hamas itself couldn’t be bothered to keep up the pretense, which is why they rejected the aid from the flotilla when Israel eventually tried to deliver it. It can’t be a con if everybody’s in on it.

Below that, via the Right Scoop, you’ll find another palate cleanser in the same vein. You may, if you wish, consider it your allegory of the day.

Saw the second clip yesterday morning. That woman screaming “You killed my family!” certainly is clueless. Oh, and nice American accent, lady. I really believe that nice young man killed your family now!

Actually some are , but most “want to believe”.

the_nile on June 3, 2010 at 8:57 PM

Great clips…

… Especially the second one. It’s about time someone stood up to these zealots, and put a microphone and camera on them. Especially when it is a single, very brave, high school student.

I especially liked ‘extremely well fed ignorant protest girl with the scarf’

Explains a lot about their lost cause.

… But more to the coming war.

RobCon on June 3, 2010 at 8:58 PM

Obama and company are still calling these terrorists peace activists….so they are not “seriously fooled”, just complicit with terror?

Thanks again to Mr. Biden

“We’ll make them believe that the Hamas is Momma Theresa.”

Awesome.

That 16 year old has more sense than the media elites and those “peaceful” protestors combined.

SouthernGent on June 3, 2010 at 9:00 PM

In the second video,

with the Israeli walking with the flag,
it,sure does symbolize Israel,as the rest
of the Anti-Israeli Protesters that surround
him symbolizes the Muslim Fanatics and Liberal
Dhimmis!!!!

Wow, thought the world had ended when I couldn’t connect to HA! Glad the disconnect didn’t last long.

We Con the World is about the best spoof I’ve ever seen! Gotta watch it again, and then pass it on to a bunch of out-of-touch-with-reality people I know–just to piss them off!

The Flotilla Choir is awesome. If we had more parody like this, we might win the culture war.

I loved the “We Con the World” video. It was to the point and so true. The second video proves that it does not take to much to set these muslims off. A cartoon, the star of David or anything else for that matter.

LA is only a short trip up the coast from San Diego…

… and a bigger media market for the dozen or so ‘haters’ with a bull horn that could be called to action at the last moment.

I’m guessing you are right…

Caroline Glick is always a must read for me but I’ve never seen a picture of her before. It’s also nice to see that she’s got a sense of humor, too.

Israel and Arizona rock!!!

Creative Jews fighting back. I love it. Brought tears to my eyes. Never again. Praise be to my Christian brothers who stand with the Jews and praise be to Jews who stand with Israel and against Obama. And shame on Jews who stand with Obama and therefore against Israel.

They can’t possibly have “killed your family” you stupid cow. They were busy raping Tawana Brawley at the time. /sarc

Brilliant.

[As hack leftist, and self-hating jew Jon Stewart has proved] mockery is the best way to reach the (ignorant) masses.

More please. And faster, please [Michael Ledeen].

Best solution: Israel taking out Iran and Syria’s command and control. It will bring about “peace” in the Middle East lickety split.

CityFish on June 3, 2010 at 10:21 PM

He does have balls of steel, because that’s a murderous bunch right there, and each one itching to prove that they are holiest followers of the Prophet. What an amazing religion–a doctrine in which violence makes you holy?

And with Obama as President,I bet those two
can probably get away with murder,as I would
imagine that Holder would not intervene if
the two of them are breaking any US Laws!!

And,Obama is part of them.Now to what degree,
I dunno,but I wonder what Gibbsy has to say!!

I’ve admired Caroline Glick for many years. Seeing her in that video made me smile. To have a sense of humor while the whole world is against you? Well, that’s something.

And they can all sing pretty good, too. Not bad.

Jaynie59 on June 3, 2010 at 11:46 PM

I Con the World is pure genius. As for the 2nd video, is “chutzpah” a synonym for “cojones”?

…Dohrn, who wore a flower in her hair, said that she didn’t like the absolutist certainty of the people on the other side of the police barricades, and having been in the Weather Underground, she knew something about absolutist feeling.”

America, Israel
Judeo–Christian = Free Will (Freedom)

Everyone else
Islam = Slavery to God
Socialism = Slavery to Society
Marxism = Slavery to Stealing
Liberalism = Slavery to Victimization
Communism = Slavery to Community
Fascism = Slavery to Nation

This ain’t rocket science, now is it.
But remember “Freedom is a SIN!” so don’t even think you can just set them free.

Are you questioning Dylan’s Jewishness or are you one of the people that agree with me that he can’t sing? :)

The best way to deal with one’s enemies is through laughter.

Are you questioning Dylan’s Jewishness or are you one of the people that agree with me that he can’t sing?

OT, but did you know the organ part of “Like a Rolling Stone” was not supposed to be in the final cut? Al Kooper was visiting the studio and lied about being an organ player…he basically improvised the whole organ part. Dylan was so impressed with it, however, it stayed on the final recording.

POLECAT

Great point, Polecat, but Islam is slavery to ALLAH, a deity wholly created from the twisted imagination of Muhammed. Allah is NOT the God of the Bible. Whether you are a believer in the God revealed in the Bible or not, the two are separate entities.

DCJeff on June 4, 2010 at 11:53 AM

I’m no scholar, just a Hillbilly from Missouri. It always seemed to me that Mohammed didn’t invent anything, he stole it all from the bible and turned it on its head, Lock, Stock and Barrel. Simply redefining God as a Slave Master, Surrender to the will of Allah and all that. I was however perplexed that all these other “ism’s” could make alliances, and rush to each other’s defense when their stated goals are so completely incompatible. Then one night a vision came to me in my sleep. Slavery is Slavery, Universal Slavery comes first, then we can fight it out over who gets to be the Master. But I am surprised at how clueless all those other “ism’s” are to the fact that Mohammed has already played the ultimate trump card making Allah the Slave Master, precluding the position from any mere human. I will admit to being a bit obsessed about this whole Slavery vs. Individual Free Will thing because it is becoming more and more clear that “Live Free or Die” isn’t just a catchy jingle.
