Quote# 81741

[Fareed Zakaria, in an interview with Charlie Rose, says that America can learn from the rest of the world.]

Sorry for my language, but FUCK Fareed and FUCK Charlie Rose. Rose should have slapped that camel jocky upside his anti-American head and told him "Hell YES this is the best system in the world!"

He wants to look at what others are doing? FUCK YOU Fareed. Go live there. Go live in some other country that gets it "righter" that we do. Stop taking American dollars, stop polluting American airwaves, STOP LIVING HERE.

Start your OWN country. Write a better document than the Constitution. One that is "less antiquated". Set up a system YOU like.

Oh wait. Already been done. It's called "Sharia".

Traitorous Moslem son of a bitch, you go to HELL!

(He advises the President. DO YOU NEED TO KNOW ANY MORE???)

Um. Zakaria is a hindu, not a Muslim.

"Start your OWN country. Write a better document than the Constitution. One that is "less antiquated". Set up a system YOU like.

Wait...did this guy just say Sharia Law is better than the Constitution? Or am I finally going crazy?

"Write a better document than the Constitution. "

I'd write one with a wall of separation between church and state so there are no problems with sharia. Oh wait . . .

Raise your hand if you would at least consider moving to a country with a constitution drawn up by Zakaria. I don't think he would want any part of actual governance, he's too much of a fact-hoarder.

@ Mudak - he is in fact from an Indian Muslim family.

WT is still an idiot, though.

You know what makes the United States so great, Wyatt? We have the right to criticize the government without fear of being reprimanded for doing so, which is exactly what Zakaria is doing. So, maybe YOU'RE the one displaying views counter to traditional American ideals.

The insane ultranationalism that drives colonialism and imperialism.

If you look at the segment, it's hard to believe that a fundie would actually have a problem with his argument.

-Congress/the government is dysfunctional
-The tax code is dysfunctional and corrupt (granted, a right-winger would come to the same conclusion for the opposite reason)
-We should operate the government like a business in that we should streamline it

The problems that the fundie has with this are 1: it was said by a Brown man, and 2: adopting these changes would require admitting that the United States isn't perfect.

Oh, and, by the way:
@nazani14: *raises hand*

Yes, slapping someone upside the head and bitching at them for having an opinion contrary to some other guy's is totally good interview technique.

I lived in Europe for over a decade, I have been to over 40 countries on 4 continents. While the U.S. has a lot of great things, it is not the utopia you seem to think it is. Germany respects personal privacy much more has stricter privacy laws than the U.S. That's just one example of someone else doing something better than us.

Jeez, no need to be so reactionary. I totally understand why so many people around the world hate the U.S. now. It's this attitude of "America is the greatest, and anything we didn't invent or any idea we didn't think of is un-American" that's driving us into the ground. It's what's keeping us from having decent health care because "them dirty Frenchies have socialized medicine."

Between the jingoistic Americans and the American haters from other countries, is it really any wonder why more and more Americans are wishing that they were born elsewhere? Like even Canada, perhaps. Talk about being stuck between a rock and a hard place.

All you did with that rant was prove Fareed's point.

let's see: besides the rampant xenophobia, he seems to be angry that someone has progressive ideas (and i use that term in the sense of making progress) about "his" country, and wants to kick the guy out for criticizing the usa. he is indeed calling the sharia better than the constitution, which does seem odd, so we better see it as a thinly veiled racial remark.

as for the last statement, 2 things: capslock does not lend more power to the argument, and yes, in fact, i do need to know more. if what he advises is sensible (regardless of political opinion) then i see no problem with that if he can back it up with convincing ideas and logic. it's the contrary that would pose problems, if you ask me.

edit: holy shit! the rest of the commentaries are even worse! is it possible to pull an entire thread into RSTDT or FSTDT just this once? these guys are nuts... i take that back, that's an insult to dry fruits AND to seeds!!

6/6/2011 5:59:17 AM



Wyatt, do you pray to god with that filthy mouth of yours? If you substituted the word "Russia" for "America" I would swear Vladimir Zhirinovsky had written that (if you know who he is).

Those are the arguments I would present to a rational person. For you, Flaming Wyatt, I'd just say, "Shut the fuck up, Skeeter."

"Best" does not equal perfect.

Also, stating that sharia law is less antiquated than the Constitution shows an incredible lack of knowledge.

It is also good to know that anyone who disagrees with Wyatt needs to move to another country. Very American of you Wyatt.

@Breakerslion:

You should have added country# 38 to show Wyatts torch which country his Greatest Country In The World is just ahead of: Cuba.

I'm reminded of Margaret Cho's rant about wishing people would at least get their racist insults right. Camel Jockey is a term usually reserved for Arabs. Zakaria was born in India. Now, go on to bed while the adults talk serious business.

"Sorry for my language, but FUCK Fareed and FUCK Charlie Rose. Rose should have slapped that camel jocky upside his anti-American head and told him 'Hell YES this is the best system in the world!'"

Best system in the world?

At what, exactly? Spending ungodly amounts of money on military hardware that sits idle until someone like Bush comes along and decides it's a good idea to invade numerous countries on vague grounds?

Or do we have the "best system in the world" for health care where the vast majority of people can't actually get the treatments they need because they can't personally afford it and are, instead, extorted by giant insurance companies who may or may not pay for the treatments, depending on whether or not having you continue living will affect their bottom line too much.

Or maybe it's our social equality where, for various periods of time, women couldn't vote, anyone whose skin was too dark could be owned by another person or, today, where if you happen to find the wrong sex attractive you're denied basic and inherent rights because of it.

"He wants to look at what others are doing? FUCK YOU Fareed. Go live there. Go live in some other country that gets it "righter" that we do. Stop taking American dollars, stop polluting American airwaves, STOP LIVING HERE."

Why not just make it better instead of running away?

"Start your OWN country. Write a better document than the Constitution. One that is "less antiquated". Set up a system YOU like."

Technically, the Constitution cannot become "antiquated" as it's a living document that was intended to be altered as society progressed and new unforeseen changes needed to be made.

"Oh wait. Already been done. It's called "Sharia".

Traitorous Moslem son of a bitch, you go to HELL!"


Fuck you, Wyatt.

Allegory for Jesus

Fareed Zakaria is Indian you fucking bigot. And I imagine that Wyatt failed school miserably if he saw the suggestion that he might possibly learn something from someone else as an insult worthy of "FUCK YOU". I mean, obviously, suggesting that we improve one aspect of America means we hate it completely. I suppose this also means that Wyatt isn't pro-birth. I mean, if you think that this country is wrong in its current laws, stop taking American dollars, stop polluting American internet, STOP LIVING HERE. Start your OWN country. Right?
