Video: Ahmadinejad addresses pressing global problem of U.S. campaign spending

posted at 4:41 pm on September 26, 2012 by Allahpundit

In which a guy who won a second term through a rigged poll and subsequent bloody crackdown on Iranian voters complains about the unfairness of the American electoral system. No surprise, nor is it a surprise that he’d work in an OWS-ish reference to the “99 percent” of the electorate whose voices aren’t heard. His last few speeches at the UN have sought to leverage the global recession by pandering to western (and non-western) class warriors; he went after capitalism more than once in today’s speech, just as he has the past few years. The campaign spending shtick is new, I believe, but then there was no U.S. presidential election the last few years to exploit in his UN remarks. This is all par for the course in his UN addresses, as he perpetually aims to rally an international coalition of Islamists, socialists, and catch-all anti-Americans in defense of Iran’s fundamentalist doomsday weapons. Go read this post on his 2007 address and see if any of the following, from today’s speech, sounds familiar:

There is no doubt that the world is in need of a new order and a fresh way of thinking:

1- An order in which man is recognized as God’s Supreme Creature, enjoying material and spiritual qualities and possessing a pure and divine nature filled with a desire to seek justice and truth.

2- An order that aims to revive human dignity and believes in universal happiness and perfection.

_ An order which is after peace, lasting security and welfare for all walks of life around the globe.

An order that is founded upon trust and kindness and brings thoughts, hearts and hands closer to each other. Rulers must love people.

A just and fair order in which everybody is equal before law and in which there is no double standard.

Ladles and ladles of utopian pap, all in service to a fascist, expansionist, anti-semitic agenda. That’s been his rhetorical style at the UN since day one; in an age of ever more sophisticated disinformation, his crude, no-frills Orwellianism seems almost honest. The only key difference this year, apparently, is that he went a little lighter than usual on demonizing Israel. Presumably that’s because of reports that Netanyahu is increasingly isolated within the Israeli government in his determination to attack before Iran gets the bomb. The more Ahmadinejad screeches about “Zionists,” the more he risks rallying support to Bibi.

Oh, and just to follow up on Monday’s post: The United States delegation did not attend.

Islamists and leftists use the same rhetoric. Have any leftist read Ahmadinejad’s speech and you won’t be able to tell the difference.

darwin on September 26, 2012 at 4:50 PM

But first, we need to impose Islam and Sharia upon all.

Then we can move forward with all this fluffy stuff.

Ahh, the U.N. Proving once again they’re too inept, incompetent, and ineffective to fetch my coffee.

“Here’s a great idea, let’s give a dictator the podium! I’m sure what he has to say will be enlightening.”

These jackasses would feel enlightened hearing a gorilla explore a portable toilet.

1- An order in which man is recognized as God’s Supreme Creature, enjoying material and spiritual qualities and possessing a pure and divine nature filled with a desire to seek justice and truth.

You mean something like—
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
hmmmm…….now where have I heard that ?

burrata on September 26, 2012 at 5:04 PM

Shut up dude. Yeah, corporate contributions control the electoral systems for both parties in our country. You’re right.

But who do you think you are and how big of a hypocrite do you had to be to be giving out moral platitudes about the integrity of elections in ANYONE else’s country when your system is completely rigged and without any degree of care or concern for what the voters of your own country wants?

He’s right about our system, but f**k him. Ours is still light years ahead of yours douchebag.

Boomer_Sooner on September 26, 2012 at 5:08 PM

I’m sure the well-meaning Ahmadinejad was just trying to say that, for the price of one American election, the wise and benevolent UN could_____________(insert globalist idea here).

Ever notice that all globalist ideas require American money?

This smelly little pipsqueak shouldn’t be allowed to fly over the Atlantic Ocean, let alone land on our side of it.

I don’t normally wish such things, but I have to say that I really wouldn’t be unhappy if his plane suddenly lost altitude over the Atlantic while returning to the Islamic Rathole of Iran.

Says the guy who proudly declares his nation has no gays and screeches about the Zionists. That’s about all that need be said to measure the worth of this individual or the United Nations for that matter.

Oh, and just to follow up on Monday’s post: The United States delegation did not attend.

That’s the right answer but why was it ever a question? Was Obama seriously going to let the US delegation sit there and listen to this crap instead of walking out with Israel in protest? That’d make for some interesting discussions once Yom Kippur is over.

Have a good day, Ahmadinejad

He’ll use the bomb.

And The Commie will find some reason to apologize for America, when Israel is glowing.

I would like him to visit a Iranian deep underground nuke plant, where it takes a long time to travel to the bottom. And just as long to travel up to the top to leave.

Then I would like Stuxnet virus to kick in and annouce over the intercom, “You have 2 minutes to reach minimum safe distance”.

Finally, BOOM!

One can dream.

I think that this filthy, flea-bitten, feral punk should appear on a campaign ad with The Commie and his wife:

battling against the Big Gulp – and what its done to America.

The filthy, flea-bitten, feral punk and The Commie and his wife CARE about us.

They love America.

They love us.

Why exactly is it that we allow one of the terrorists who attacked the American Embassy in Tehran and took 52 Americans hostage to enter the United States?

State

You know the collosal screw ups we are seeing are not all Barky’s creations. He’s a mendacious guy for sure, but State is a very serious longstanding problem.

CorporatePiggy on September 26, 2012 at 6:51 PM

The Daily Beast article AllahP highlights is way off the mark.

This wide ranging, extensive interview with Ehud Barack from just this week shows why I hope you trust the left wing press reporting on Israel with extreme caution: ‘We won’t outsource our fate, not even to our closest allies’

Most of the article is demonstratively false.
They have an agenda, Peter Beinart who directs most of the Israel coverage there has an even more extreme agenda.. It’s all to make Obama look amazing, attack Netanyahu 24/7.

saus on September 26, 2012 at 7:55 PM

I’d like to add that’s not a knock on AllahP in any shape manner or form. He’s an astute commenter on my region, and even whwn he doesn’t know he makes a 120% effort.. <- Respect.

I’ll be totally honest and say that I’d go buy a real bottle of champagne (not sparkling cider) and celebrate. The only fly in the ointment would be who succeeded him…
