I would be a lot more confident if some of our politicians spoke like Pat Condell. We are sick of the intimidation, the implied threats, the phony racism accusations. However, the tiniest truth-telling is instantly rebuked.
Thank Heaven there is a secret ballot. It mattered in NY in 1993 when Dinkins was voted out and hopefully, it will be similarly successful in November.
Swap “islam” for “anti-western progressive utopianism” and the message is just as valid. In the only sense that matters, radical islam = progressiveism. Same sense of entitlement, same insulted outrage, same “my way only” attitude, same willingness to treat all others as objects to be subjugated and discarded. The west has no room for either version. Perhaps Turkey could become the new homeland for both — suitably isolated from the rest of the planet, of course.
I’ve decided to take on a new attitude after the landslide in November is realized by the dimmycrats – whenever I hear any complaints by my leftist friends and family members (there are a few) I’m going to look sternly at them and tell them to buck up – “we won – you lost” is what I’ll tell em. They’d better get used to it.
Even more so, the so called religion of ‘peace’ is anything but.
Therefore, though I am neither a cartoonist ( can’t even draw a straight line )nor a satirist, I am a political commentator, and a student of geo-politics. Moreover, my forte is the Middle East and Islam, and their relations to the west.
Therefore, if the Radical/Islamist-in-Chief can take a moment off from his golf game, I offer him these gift of knowledge – free of charge!

I am a cartoonist Adina, and I would love to bring some of your ideas to that form of media.
Chris, well, cartoon on…..adopt any of my ideas free of charge!
When I do, I’ll send them your way. I realize the issues are not funny, but it’s not too difficult to make fools look as silly as they really are with a little truth and caricature.
Condell is superb. For those unfamiliar, scroll down the YouTube list and listen to just about anything this man says. Refreshing and usually spot on.
Smallest of quibbles, in no way a criticism as a serial typo-ologist myself… Your article needs a good proofread – saw at least seven typos of various flavors…
I think those might not be typos exactly but British spelling. I guess.
“It is not power that corrupts but fear. Fear of losing power corrupts those who wield it and fear of the scourge of power corrupts those who are subject to it.”
John McCain quoting Aung San Suu Kyi
McCain should know.
The progressive left will not see the light of day. I am very much reminded of England in the 1930′s. They then (Churchill excepted) and we now (the educated right excepted) are living in cloud cuckoo land…we can’t just wish it away. The politician who voices your feelings will see a groundswell of support from the silent majority. Be well, and fight on.
So true – and yet we wait to hear the words. About the only prominent politician saying them is Col. Alan West – the man who should be running against Obama.
Maybe some day…
Right on. I am currently reading Winston Churchill’s The Gathering Storm to be followed by The Aftermath. The parallels of England’s first socialist government and their view of the world from relative comfort and denial; elsewhere, the debt payments, starvation of populations, rallying of voters through divisivness and scapegoating, blame, control of media, lack of any stance or action by the US…..
It is easy to take any of the characters at the time and insert present day players and nations.
Someone get this on Drudge. Wow.
This man is in real deep trouble. This goes way beyond Terry Jones and that movie maker. The pentagon will surly be sending many generals to do an attitude adjustment on him, if not draw and quarter him.
As to free speech prevailing as he says at the end, not if Obama and our $800 billion a year pentagon have anything to say about it.
Pat Condell is simply brilliant, and dead right.
Attention!!! General Petraeus, now head of the CIA, here. I condemn the action of this hateful individual who made a video disrespecting the Great Prophet Mohammad and the Great Islamic Religion of Peace. That action was hateful. It was intolerant, and it was extremely disrespectful. I condemn the actions of a small number of individuals who have been extremely disrespectful to the Islam and the Prophet Mohammad and the Holy Qur’an. Together with our Muslim Partners in Peace, we must secure and serve the people of the Muslim world.
“Build your funeral pyre; beside it, my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your custom. And then we will follow ours.”

And both parties want to continue to fund these allah pukes.
Glad to see this piece here at PJM. Condell is extraordinary. He tells it like it is (and doesn’t even read a script for his videos). He speaks the truth. He does not mince words. He speaks boldly. For anyone not familiar to him, I would strongly encourage you to check out many of his videos. He has gone through an evolution of sorts, from a focus a few years ago on all relgion (he is an aetheist) to exposing Islam and, in so doing, standing up for Christians and Jews around the world. He is just incredible.
Craig Z leaves out the context for Napier’s remark that he quotes, “Build your funeral pyre; beside it, my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your custom. And then we will follow ours.”
Here’s the context: it has to do with the suppression of the ancient Hindu practice of suttee, burning a widow on her husband’s funeral pyre.
Faced with local complaints about the abolition of suttee, Charles Napier, the British Army’s Commander-in-Chief in India, replied:
“You say that it is your custom to burn widows. Very well. We also have a custom: when men burn a woman alive, we tie a rope around their necks and we hang them. Build your funeral pyre; beside it my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your custom. And we will follow ours.”
Re Condell: he’s is right on. It’s just that I don’t think our politicians are . . . and I don’t see many Napiers around.
If you have seen 2016 then it’s obvious that this IS what Obama wants, to bring down the Colonialist Americans….
I wish we had someone that would tell it like Condell. If we had energy independence from the ME maybe someone would, here’s to hope
I keep hearing this colonialist thing and I’m wondering exactly WHAT are our colonies? Puerto Rico? We tried to give that back and they won’t go. We made them citizens and they get to vote, plus get money from us, but they’re not a state so they don’t have to pay taxes. How is this a raw deal for them?
If anything WE were the colony and fought against our colonial oppressor. How did this make us the bad guy?
If anything we are the world’s policeforce and I, for one am sick of it. We didn’t ask for the job yet the world b!tches mightily if we don’t answer their 911.
My 2¢ is we leave them to it. And cut off the blasted allowance. Grow up people! Pay your own way!
I wish our politicians had to stones to say something like what Pat said. I’m so sick and tired of the west having to apologize for EVERYTHING on this planet to the Muslim world. The Islamists are nothing but a bunch of medieval, misogynistic, homophobic, barbaric pedophiles that don’t deserve the time of day, let alone an apology from us. To see Clinton and Obama crawl on their bellies day after day to these people is not only insulting, it’s demoralizing, not that that means anything to Obama and his minions. I’m tired of seeing our politicians grovel and beg for Muslim forgiveness when none is wanted or needed. I don’t CARE if these cretins are offended. I don’t care if these barbaric animals think that we don’t “respect” their God. Newsflash to them: WE DO NOT! Instead of just living their lives in peace and minding their own business, they feel compelled to make sure that the rest of the world is as miserable as they are. Well, enough is enough. If they want their clash of civilizations, they’ve got it. And it’s about to hit the fan if Israel bombs Iran. After that, all bets are off and the west had better start thinking about which side it’s on. Will we remain independent, or will be submit to a medieval caliphate that should have been done away with over 700 years ago? Time for the west to make a choice.
Expect a telephone call from the U. S. militaries’ chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
I hope and pray our Military aren’t so brainwashed by the current scum-in-chief that they would turn on their the very people they are supposed to be protecting. THAT would be a true travesty.
I do not think the rest of America wants to go here!

For those who would appreciate a serious essay on tolerance:
Tolerance and Reciprocity, by Anthony Esolen.
Do you know where the GM jobs, and money went? After the bailout with U.S. taxpayer dollars? Here is where they went!
Pat C may not post every month, but he is surely the best satirist on Youtube.
I do always wonder if there is a fatwa out on him.
My hero. Sigh.
It’s already 5 minutes to midnight in America – be sure to read what’s happening in Bloomington, MN.
What do you mean, what happened to him? He keeps on keeping on, as the British say (or are supposed to say)… see his you tube channel.
“I hadn’t heard of him for a while …”
Roger, you need to start reading the Gates of Vienna blog. They post Condell regularly. There are lots of other reasons to bookmark Gates of Vienna, too.
Here is another powerful and much-needed voice at this point in history: Virginia Prodan who was granted asylum under Reagan. She is Romanian and speaks from first hand experience how a totalitarian regime takes hold. Listen to her and tell me it isn’t chilling to realize the connections to what’s unfolding before our eyes in America.
(was linked at American Thinker today)
…this video check out another chat Condell has with your prez
What a great video. He’s mad, he’s right and he ain’t giving up. Thanks so much for posting it. I do think that perhaps he should worry about the “thought police” coming after him. I wish more people could see this.
“the religion of permanent offense”
Also, “the religion of perpetual outrage”
These jokers have destroyed the respect enjoyed by Islam (merited or not) in the past, Mohammed as “lawgiver” and all that.
Condell exactly describes my evolution vis à vis Islam over the past 11 years.
“Screw you, strong letter follows”
I routinely print out your articles and leave them with a couple of neighbors. I highlight in yellow the links that the intelligent commenters leave to articles, videos, etc.
I don’t know what, if any, effect this is having.
I am starting to understand the “Party of Stupid” title.
IDEA : WHAT PJMEDIA really needs to do is to start a NEWSTAND publication and market it aggressively. Its time that something good appears in the STREETS. We don’t all have time to go around proselytizing but we could pop a small magazine into peoples mailboxes.
What a good idea! I read all the conservative blog sites regularly, yet the majority of Americans apparently get their news only from the mainstream media. As such, hard to believe as it may be, they have no idea what is going on. A newsstand publication is a great idea! I would contribute to it.
Now, just for a second, imagine…if that were the speech of a President of the United States.
Imagine the millions of death avoided in the future because the West would rally around its Freedom and would show to the orcs its determination…
OK OK , I’m dreaming.
But we are here, We the People.
Islam is as Islam does and no weasel words by Imams and pathetic Left Wing Islamophile moonbats can ever change that. There is no such thing as ‘RADICAL’ Islam or ‘FUNDAMENTAL’ Islam or ‘ISLAMIST” Islam there is just ISLAM.
There may be ‘moderate’ Muslims’ hell I know many myself and am even married to one, but what there most certainly is not is a ‘MODERATE’ Islam. It is “moderate’ Muslims and the moonbats who are the REAL misunderstanders of Islam.
BRAVO!!!! Too bad the people that need to hear this will never, ever listen to it so I have sent this link to every person in my address book. If they don’t like it, too damn bad.
Armageddon is upon us. This is the tolerant against the intolerant. The tolerant that can be tolerant no more. This is love against hate.
If Bush had come out on September 12th, 2001, and said something lke this, think of all the lives, the time and the countles trillions of dollars that would have been saved over the intervening 11 years.
No, the wretched Bush came out and called Islam a “religion of peace”.
Which makes November all the more depressing. If George W Bush did that, what can we expect from that paid-up, punch-drunk member of the Republican establishment, Romney? If he is elected, and it’s a huge if, he will be so timorous, so terrified of the MSM and the chattering classes, so fixated on reelection, that it will be business as usual, more debt, a few timid budget cuts, more debt, soothing PC vapidities, more debt, more pandering to pressure groups, more debt, while the good ship the United States tilts ever more steeply, just like the Titanic, before sliding beneath the waves.
Wouldn’t it be better to stay with Obama? At least the agony won’t be as drawn out.
Since we are on our favorite Pat Condell Youtubes – check out “American Dhimmi” at:
Indeed, check out any Pat Condell at his YouTube “station”
Sooner or later islam may come to realize that anglo saxon western civilization is at the top of the heap because we are the most violent , most revengeful, most determined ,and most diabolically desructive force in all of human history..and when we are finished..we simply go back to living in peace with no regrets or vendettas or recriminations…so if you can live with that Islam..we can live with you..but if you cannot…we will search the gene pool and wipe out your entire family history and your future as well..Peace be with you.
Condell has been doing these fantastic videos for years.
Does Pajamahadeen HQ not know this?
Hard to argue with a man who has his facts together so definitively.
I’m still wondering how I get the American/Israeli flag concession in muslim locations. Every time they get offended, they burn American and/or Israeli flags. Where do they come from on such short notice?
If only the American Leaders expressed our feelings this way. Unfortunately, the American President the last four years will be President another four years. Thank God for term limits.
