To cleanse the palate. Yesterday’s CW: The Dalai Lama is the world’s most enlightened man.
Today’s CW: The Dalai Lama must be deplatformed.
Or at least stripped of his Nobel Prize.
This is unexpected:
I like that he just owns it, almost cheerily, even. It’s vaguely Trumpy in its unapologetic political correctness.
In fact, upon further review, this guy sounds very Trumpy:
The 83-year-old said: ‘European countries should take these refugees and give them education and training, and the aim is – return to their own land with certain skills.’…
When asked what should happen to those who want to stay in their adopted countries, he replied: ‘A limited number is OK. But the whole of Europe [will] eventually become Muslim country – impossible. Or African country, also impossible.’…
He added: ‘They themselves, I think [are] better in their own land. Better [to] keep Europe for Europeans.’
So there’s the low-key biggest news of the week. At some point when the world wasn’t looking, the Dalai Lama got red-pilled.
Here’s a few more bits from the same interview, including some of the comments about refugees. I’m tempted to wonder if Trump will be reincarnated as his successor, but the subject of Trump is broached here and, well, it doesn’t go well.
