The Dalai Lama and the US Constitution

Here is my 4th of July post. Below is a quote from the blog Duganz: A Heretic’s Life entitled The Dalai Lama is evil:

“I know that America is no pearl of democracy, or bastion of freedom, but we are not a theocracy (in fact, we made our first constitutional amendment a refutation of theocratic government). What Mr. Gyatzo wants is a theocratic rule of Tibet. He is not for a “free” Tibet. He is in fact for implementing a religious dictatorship. It’s sick. It’s un-American. It should not be something supported by our government, the CIA, or our treasured D-List actors like Steven Seagal (who Mr. Gyatzo has claimed is a reincarnated lama).”

The truth goes marching on in the blogosphere! Below is the Dalai Lama: the “God King” video.

The Dalai Lama and the American Empire

Dalai Lama shows off Congressional Medal
Today, I came across Grant Lawrence’s blog and discovered that he has been occasionally writing about the Dalai Lama’s hypocrisy for several years. Grant Lawrence works as a school counselor and mental health counselor in Gallup New Mexico. I’ve posted a couple excerpts from his articles below.

The Dalai Lama: A good showman but an empty robe

Audience member: “Can you give us an example of a leader we should look up to as a positive influence?”

Dalai Lama (after thinking for a few seconds): “President Bush. I met him personally and liked him very much. He was honest and straightforward, and that is very important. I may not have agreed with all his policies, but I thought he was very honest and a very good leader.”

The Dalai Lama has been shown to be something of a showman and a likely CIA stooge. He has previously gone on record supporting “just” wars like the one in Iraq and the War on Terror.

Unfortunately the Dalai Lama has put his own cause above the cause of humanity. The Dalai gets a great deal of US support (likely financial) for his continued discrediting of the Chinese government on the issues of Tibet. In 2007, Bush presented the Dalai Lama with the Congressional Medal of Freedom for his support of US policies around the world.

The people of Tibet and their treatment are an important issue. However, the people of Iraq, Afghanistan, and all of those countries suffering under the policies of Global Empire (globalisation) are no less important. …

The Dalai Lama Hype: Why?

The Dalai professes compassion and care for all beings but doesn’t care for the people of Iraq and Afghanistan. He promotes the idea of just wars and that the US occupations of those countries are good and decent. He also has a special fondness for the war criminal Bush.

The Dalai Lama’s connections to the CIA should be known. He was saved and paid by the CIA after leaving Tibet.

The Dalai Lama has morphed into a type of New Age Televangelist for American Empire.

He’s all show. But when it comes to delivering the goods of real compassion and moral courage he’s too busy putting on that show. I believe it is no accident that the Dalai finds such adulation here in the West and he has a history of support from the CIA. …
