Leftists are always looking for ways to score multicultural brownie points. Mostly by sucking up to trendy minority groups. Like the trannies. Or the
death cult religion of peace, Islam. But, there’s nothing more delightfully cliche than leftists’ philosophically-obligated love for a certain jolly, pot-bellied fellow. No, not Santa Claus, although leftists do love free stuff. I’m talking about Buddha. The Huffington Post decided to turn to Siddhartha’s homeboys for some advice on fighting the Donald. They didn’t get the answers they were expecting…
As part of its ongoing effort to come to terms with the fact Donald Trump is President, the Huffington Post visited southern France to interview nuns and monks at 90-year-old Zen Buddhist monastery.
HuffPo evidently thought that visiting the monastery of Thich Nhat Hanh, who pioneered the Engaged Buddhism idea and is a leading social and environmental activist, would give them much-needed insight on how to ramp up the resistance.
Except what they found doesn’t exactly seem to be what they wanted to hear. For example, Sister Peace, a nun at the monastery, Plum Village, who previously worked in the office of the mayor of Washington, stressed the need to “recognize, listen to and embrace” the other point of view—an approach hardly prioritized by HuffPo of late.
Well, there you have it leftists. Straight from the mouths of cue-balled, eastern mystics. If their knowledge of Buddhism wasn’t limited to lighting incense and decorating their coffee tables with jade statues, leftists would know your average Buddhist isn’t really down with the violences. Screaming like a pissed-off infant and smashing the windows of Starbucks with a baseball bat isn’t the way to handle your problems. Nor is it the way to enlightenment. Who would’ve known?
That question was rhetorical, of course. You know smashing that which doesn’t belong to you isn’t exactly the conduit of peace, fulfillment, or finding thy centered self. But hey, the media is comprised of the same blanched flour brains who think Islam is the “religion of peace.” Which they shout as two teen boys blow themselves up for Allah. Mayhaps the media, like their favorite victim group (for now) are a bit confused about reality. Like trannies, the media tends to think their version of reality is reality. Tis not so. Hey, at least we can crack jokes and laugh at their expense to cope with such toxic levels of dumbassery. #Silverlining
I give you the Young Turks as exhibit A…
