A Declining Empire

Watch Brit Tony Benn Beat Punk-Ass Bolton to a Pulp, 5-minutes of BBC fun! Why don't we see smackdown shows like this in America? Was that Benazir Bhutto sitting on the panel? The Zen of Benn:

Hear, hear!! To all Americans thinking we live in a democracy, lifetime passes to Fantasyland where they'll get all the free rides they want around the park on the back of a giant walrus bearing a strange resemblance to John Bolton!

Now if only more people would tell the truth like he did in this video.

If more speak out the truth might eventually sink in to those who have been blinded by all the lies this administration has told.

God Bless.

Dada: Hear, Hear! Will the right-honorable member please recognize that the giant walrus head on the screen behind him is a wanking twit?

Anon-P: I hope you're right. I know Tony Benn knows whereof he speaks, and that all these little strutting banty-cocks who loudly crow about killing for freedom, and sacrificing our constitution for security, have been frantically covering their asses with UN-warcrime-bullet-proof-abracadabra. It's up to us to see through the razzle-dazzle.

I like the comment that there is no difference between a Stealth bomber & a suicide bomber... ther eis a bumper sticker that says:

War is Terrorism with a bigger budget

God that was so good I am surprised it is not fattening!

Bolton is such a weenie that he makes me want to kick his ass and take his lunch money.

And I never saw that Tony Benn guy before but he just moved to the top of my hero list.

D.K. Raed said...

Fran: me, too! I might add that a suicide bomber is usually far less deadly, if that's not too gross an observation.

Gryphen: I know! In reading Benn's Bio, I thought how could I have not known about this guy? He totally clears the Thatcher-Blair bad air hovering over the U.K.

OMG,
Bolton is lecturing Benn about not understanding the American constitution! Too rich. Benn talking about there being no difference between a Suicide bomber and a Stealth bomber, unbelievable. I bet ol' Bolton declines future interviews. God, why can't this country exercise the type of intelligence and grasp of history like Benn can? Great smackdown, D.K. Thanks for posting this.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

God Bless.

Bolton and his mustache should not be allowed to lecture anyone on anything,.....I am always amazed to turn on a talk show and they are Interviewing him, and underneath it says "international affair expert" ....must not curse...must not curse.....

Loved the clip....and WHY don't we have anyone here that can do that there must be more Benn's in the world???

D.K. Raed said...

Pursey: I liked when Benn talked about setting up the UN charter & then said "YOU threw it out & it's a war crime"! I see no shows like this on our TV. If it wasn't for youtube...

Enigma: the people here who have the grasp of history & could completely rip apart the assholes in charge are relegated to C-Span, if seen anywhere at all. Now I love C-Span myself, but they sure do a lousy job of program description, omitting topics & even the names of the major speakers. Even when looking at their TV schedule online, you see big blocks of time just listed as "perspective" or somesuch. Who can blame channel flippers for flipping when the program description is so vague?

BTW, Bolton's mustache is gross! Is he trying to play Nietzche or Einstein or Saddam? I've got a theory ...

D.K. Raed said...

Anon-Paranoid: Happy Turkey Day to you, too! I see you've got a new post up, which I'll tackle later today. Right now I can't remember if your post title was "deceased" or "diseased", but either way works for me!

DK: he was on Hardballs today....and Tweety should have watched this first- although Chris was not as nice to him this time...Bolton really is scary- he says he is not a neocon????wtf??

Larry said...

Is there anyone in America more hateful than Bolton?

D.K. Raed said...

Enigma: if he says he's not a neocon, it can only be because he's moved even further right & become more hawkish. Original PNAC-ers (of which he is one) like Kristol, Wolfowitz, Podhoretz, have dubbed him "Armageddon Man". Nice, huh? And, of course, typical of a hawk who never served in the military, Bolton is opposed to the UN & any form of intl law not controlled by the US Govt. I assume Tweety didn't contest him.

Larry: His hatefulness was revealed the day he announced the US Supreme Court ruling in Florida by striding into Tallahassee & declaring, "I'm with the Bush-Cheney team & I'm here to stop the vote"!
