I want to minus stars for not linking all six parts.
But this is just too beautiful.
Is there a trick to knowing which video is next in the series if the YouTube title is too long to ever display the numbers at the end?
Five pointy, jaggedy stars of Fuck Michelle Malkin.

Holy shit, did they start chanting his name at the end of the speech?
Did a Muslim country seriously just start chanting *our* President's name?
HOLY SHIT LOG ON ICQ SOMETIME BOB. :|
Seriously a beautiful step forward.

IN BEFORE THE "SALA HUMA LAYKUM" OH GOD SECRET MUSLIM AFTER ALL FAGGOTS!
No but seriously, does this mean we're back on track for updating the rest of the world? Not that it's our burden, I mean, but why not make it, I guess, I mean? LET'S FUCKING ROLL WITH IT!
(can he give a shout out for us Nons soon again?)
what's depressing and regretful is that he isn't speaking for every citizen of the United States...yet
-1 star for cutting it off short
He knew what needed to be said and said it in the most effective way possible to the exact audience that needed to hear it.
Anyone opposed to this speech must be an imbecile.
Of all the sinking ships on earth, ours has the most charming captain.
I was shocked that an American president said anything about Israel other than how good their balls taste. I can't wait to see how the rest of the Democrats and Republicans in government make this man suffer for daring to promote anything other than rabid animal fuckviolence.
Non sequitur - Holy shit he's going grey fast. Not six months into correcting Bush's disasters and he's aged 10 years. He'll be a wizened raisin by 2016.
The job is supposed to age you, unless you did it wrong.
My, but doesn't Bush still look fit and healthy?
Bush always had a slouchy, sloppy attitude. Like the kid who knows you can't fire him cuz his dad owns the place.

Wow Teener. I think you're the first person ever to make that observation.
I always find it amusing to point out to conservatives who are usually "OMG Teh ARABS!" after something like this that the majority of Muslims are Asian, not Arab.
Also, I'm an atheist, so other than not liking theocracy in general, I'm of the opinion that if Islam ever became the dominant religion in the Western World, you wouldn't see Sharia or anything outside of the usual backwaters where such things are commonplace with Christianity.
No religion in the West has ever withstood the simultaneous assaults from money, pr0n, TV, movies, and youth culture on a massively corporate-funded scale.
Rape Van Winkle
Wow. Asians. What continent is the Arabian Peninsula attached to?
Rape Van Winkle
Because, you see, I was under the impression that he wasn't addressing Africans, but Egyptians.
Rape Van Winkle
I'm also glad to hear that Saudi Arabia, which has more televisions per capita than any other nation, has withstood the corporate onslaught.
I'm an athiest too, and I suspect we'd agree on a number of things. But you're wrong about Christianity being more likely, as the dominant religion in an area of the modern world, to impose harsh law than Islam; whether for the religious majority or minorities or atheists in said area/countries.
Most of the powers that be, across the planet, are a counter argument to your idea.
I'm guessing you believe this because you want this to be true, but why?
Randomly pick 5 Muslim-majority and 5 Christian-majority countries, and run around saying you're an atheist in all 10. See what you get.
"Randomly pick 5 Muslim-majority and 5 Christian-majority countries, and run around saying you're an atheist in all 10. See what you get."
As an atheist, you might want to try taking a more scientific, examination of the issue, rather than what you want to be true. Specifically in terms of accounting for other variables.
True, more Muslim-majority countries have repressive regimes. But religion isn't nearly as reliable an indicator as income, military history, and the type of government. Uganda is an 84% Christian nation that executes homosexuals, and Morocco is a prosperous, progressive Muslim country. Even a cursory examination of history shows that for much of our history, Christian-dominated Europe was more backward, violent and intolerant than Middle Eastern states. And our own renunciation of slavery and the murder of atheists and homosexuals is quite recent, less than 150 years, the separation growing based on the enlightenment and industrial revolution, rather than any difference that exists between the religions.
You could argue that Islam leads to poverty and tyranny whereas Christianity leads to progress, but clearly for longer periods of time than our modern era, the opposite was true. In fact, part of the way we were able to get ahead of other states was thorough the violent conquest and enslavement of indigenous populations, justified through Christianity. Its not clear that the Koran is any more violent or restrictive of rights than the Bible, unless of course you start to ignore those passages that are clearly now offensive and wrong.
Accuse me of cherry-picking and try to prove it by cherry-picking? Previous centuries and Uganda vs Morocco?
In part 4 he mis-pronounces something in arabic and basically says "I'm a baklava!".
OK. Not. But who can forget Ich bin ein Berliner?
... and today I lean towards "ein" being correct. "Ich bin Berliner" is a very matter-of-fact, unemphatic statement, probably too unemphatic to make the point properly.
Either way, nobody in Berlin was the tiniest bit confused. They didn't even ask to see Kennedy's long-form birth certificate.
I want to shit on Michelle Malkin's face.
