Dalai Lama: Sure, a female successor would be okay — if she’s hot

Westlake Legal Group dl Dalai Lama: Sure, a female successor would be okay — if she’s hot woman Vaidyanathan The Blog successor Muslims Europe Dalai Lama attractive

To cleanse the palate. Yesterday’s CW: The Dalai Lama is the world’s most enlightened man.

Today’s CW: The Dalai Lama must be deplatformed.

Or at least stripped of his Nobel Prize.

This is unexpected:

I like that he just owns it, almost cheerily, even. It’s vaguely Trumpy in its unapologetic political correctness.

In fact, upon further review, this guy sounds very Trumpy:

The 83-year-old said: ‘European countries should take these refugees and give them education and training, and the aim is – return to their own land with certain skills.’…

When asked what should happen to those who want to stay in their adopted countries, he replied: ‘A limited number is OK. But the whole of Europe [will] eventually become Muslim country – impossible. Or African country, also impossible.’…

He added: ‘They themselves, I think [are] better in their own land. Better [to] keep Europe for Europeans.’

So there’s the low-key biggest news of the week. At some point when the world wasn’t looking, the Dalai Lama got red-pilled.

Here’s a few more bits from the same interview, including some of the comments about refugees. I’m tempted to wonder if Trump will be reincarnated as his successor, but the subject of Trump is broached here and, well, it doesn’t go well.

Bernie on why Warren is gaining on him: Let’s face it, some people want to nominate a woman

Via the Free Beacon, he’s quick to add “I understand that” to soften the blow of his insinuation. But the fact remains that if Joe Biden had lost ground to Warren in the polls and then claimed that it was because she’s a woman, he’d be shredded by the progressive commentariat. “Why didn’t Biden attribute her growing popularity to her policy ideas? He went out of his way to demean her by implying that her gender is the prime reason people support her.”

Surely that’d be worth a pissy AOC tweet or two.

But because Bernie is the Great Socialist Hope, whose every last rhetorical fart smells like roses and lavender, the left will lay off him and so will Warren. She’s hoping to win over the fanatics in his base, after all, starting by landing his endorsement if he flames out in the early states and she performs well. She’ll simply have to endure these early jabs in silence as Sanders tries to cope with flop sweat.

For now, the Democratic civil war will be largely one-sided.

Sanders-Warren, though, has the potential to get bitter. If Biden pulls two or three more of these verbal gaffes, Democratic insiders are going to start worrying that he just can’t go the distance, and they’ll probably settle on Warren, at least as things stand now, because she has earned it (though it’s way too early to count out Kamala Harris and two or maybe three others).

And if it really is the case that the party starts to close ranks around Warren, how will Sanders and his devoted base react? The bottom line here is the same thing it was in 2016. Sanders is not a Democrat. He hates Trump as much as the rest of them and wants to see Trump lose; no doubt of that. But he has no loyalty to the Democratic Party in the way all the rest of them do. If he loses, he will not act in as predictable a fashion.

Yeah, there’s another response Bernie might have given when asked why Warren’s gaining on him in Democratic polls. “Well, unlike me, she’s a Democrat.”

The punchline here, as you know if you read last night’s post, is that Warren’s gender is likely more of a liability to her than an asset. Maybe that wouldn’t have been true in 2016, but in 2019 there’s data to suggest that she’s regarded as less electable because she’s a woman. That could be a “Trump thing,” with Dems who were spooked by Hillary’s surprise defeat now convinced that only an alpha male will appeal sufficiently to Rust Belt voters to wrest back those states from Trump. Or it could be a more straightforward matter in which some Dems hold the sexist belief that a woman as commander-in-chief would lack the requisite “toughness” for the job. Either way, it makes Bernie’s claim much more dubious. Contra his belief that it’s helping her, her gender may be the one thing that’s keeping her from passing him in most polls right now.

Exit question: Why didn’t Cuomo ask him, “If this is all about gender, why aren’t the other women candidates gaining too?”

Binders full of women: Cory Booker, Eric Swalwell vow to name a female VP

“Anyone with a vagina will do, honestly,” snarks Emily Zanotti, paraphrasing them. It’s always fun when marginal candidates, one of whom is polling at zero, start picking out running mates. It’s far more likely that one of these chumps will end up as VP to Harris, Warren, or Klobuchar than that they’ll be in a position to deign to name a woman to the ticket.

But not nearly as likely as that they’ll both be gone after New Hampshire. Maybe Booker will try to tough it out through South Carolina.

I also find it amusing that each makes this pledge with an air of vaguely transgressive wokeness, as if they’re committing themselves to a course of action that’s bold rather than something they’d have absolutely no choice but to do if nominated. Let me remind you of the gender split in the 2016 exit poll:

Not only were women a majority of the electorate, if not for their lopsided support for Democrats Trump would have crushed Hillary on the strength of his appeal to men. And don’t be tempted to assume that that lopsidedness was only because the first woman major-party nominee was on the ballot that year. The 2018 midterm exit polls show that Democrats whipped the GOP even more overwhelmingly among women last fall:

Nineteen points. America had a woman on the ballot in 2008 with Sarah Palin, a woman at the top of the ballot in 2016 with Hillary Clinton, and has one top-tier woman candidate this year in Kamala Harris with another, Elizabeth Warren, capable of contending with a few breaks. The idea that Dems will ever again have an all-male ticket when they’re relying as heavily as they are on women voters, with progressives forever demanding more diversity among their leadership, is comical. All Booker and Swalwell are really saying here is that they won’t make a choice that would instantly infuriate the left and leave them scrambling for the balance of the election why they decided that the 2020 election should be a choice between two all-male tickets. Cory and Eric will do what they’re told, and what they’re being told by their base is, “You’d better name a woman if you’re the nominee.”
