Not All Moonbats Are At The United Nations

At least one international moonbat is holed up in the Brazilian embassy in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Who's the man behind the ten-gallon hat, you ask? Why it's none other than Manuel Zelaya, former president of Honduras and hopeful future president-for-life of the same beleaguered Central American republic.

You see, Zelaya is a friend of Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, Lula da Silva of Brazil, Ahmadenijad of Iran, and Obama of the United States. That makes his political shenanigans perfectly acceptable to anyone outside of Honduras's constitutional republic. Earlier in the year, Zelaya proposed a change to the Honduran constitution which would have allowed him to succeed himself as often as he deemed necessary. Hugo Chavez liked that, and put considerable pressure on Honduras to enact the proposed changes. There's only one problem with that. Under Honduras's constitution, to avoid a Chavez-like presidency for life, it is an impeachable offense for a sitting president to propose a change in presidential elections while he is serving in office.

Since Americans have been shown by the Democrats that the Constitution is an impediment to good politics, the Obama administration has managed to paint Zelaya's exile as a military coup. After all, who cares what any constitution says about anything? When Zelaya refused to back down on his proposal, he was removed from office and sent packing. And the military was involved only because, well, who else is going to toss a potential dictator out of office? But the military took no action until the Honduran Supreme Court had declared Zelaya outlaw, and the Honduran legislature had voted to export him to some place other than Honduras.

So what is it about tin-pot, banana republic dictators and wannabe dictators that requires, among other things, that they be absolutely baying-at-the-moon nuts? We've been treated very recently to Moammar Qaddafi, King of Kings of Africa, running off at the mouth incomprehensibly at the United Nations. We've heard President-for-Life Hugo Chavez declare that the satanic smell of sulphur from the Bush appearance has been removed from the Assembly chamber by the gentle breezes of hope wafting in the wake of Obama. We've heard Iranian loon Mahmoud Imadinnerjacket inform the world that the Holocaust was a Jewish lie that requires that Israel be wiped off the map.

But poor Zelaya didn't make it up to New York for the crazy festival. He was stuck hiding out in the Brazilian embassy in Tegucigalpa, Honduras's capital city. Here's how that happened. After several attempts to return to Honduras as a grand liberator, and being rebuffed by just about everybody who had ever read the Honduran constitution, the Brazilian government ignominiously gave him a diplomatic passport and sneaked him back into Honduras. Obama, who has not read the Honduran constitution (or the American Constitution, for that matter) supports Zelaya's return to power, but as always doesn't have the guts to do anything about it. So for the time being, "Mel" (as he is known to his friends--all six of them) presently presides over his apartments at the Brazilian embassy.

Zelaya granted an audience (oops, I mean interview) to the Miami Herald last week. Expecting to hear the disgraced politician praise Obama, or Chavez, or his host, Lula, the reporter was taken aback by Zelaya going off in an entirely different direction. It isn't the plotters in Central or South America who are oppressing him. It's the damned Jews. Now we know why Imadinnerjacket likes him. He told the story of how Israeli secret agents were torturing him inside the embassy with high-frequency radiation. Not satisfied with that, the Israelis have given him a sore throat from the toxic gas they are piping into the embassy's air-conditioning ducts. His well-known penchant for Village People cowboy outfits and narcoterrorist funding of Latin American governments is starting to look downright normal.

Further declaring that he "knows" that there are at least two Israeli secret agent sharpshooters hiding in plain sight in the embassy to bump him off if the radiation and the gas fail, Zelaya describes how his life now hangs by a thread. He also "knows" that if the sharpshooters fail as well, there is a very close nearby camp of Israeli mercenaries who are ready at any time to storm the embassy, murder him, then disappear into thin air.

And this is the man Barack Obama supports with the diplomatic strength of the people of the United States. Not only does Obama remain neutral on world terrorists, but he apparently dislikes constitutional republics which exercise their sovereign power to enforce their own law. And this has led him to misstate the law in Honduras (as he often does at home) in order to support an attempted coup by a man who is clearly mad as a March hare. I feel bad for Honduras, but I'm even more concerned with whether America can survive another three and a half years of a weak-kneed, sob-sister, crooked south side of Chicago politician with strong red tendencies who actively supports anti-democratic governments in the western hemisphere.

Zelaya probably excites our Barry. His admiration for dictators is obvious, if you listen you can hear Barry say, “damn the Constitution …all of them.” Impoverished people will follow almost any despot, history is replete with examples. This is where Rham Emanuel, spews his “let no crisis goes to waste” screed, and if one does not exist, invent one. I agree, we missed some real entertainment not having Zelaya speak at the UN, oh well there’s always next year. If the Israeli Massad were after dumb-dumb (Zelaya) he’d be gone.

I can see Dear Leader sitting in Rev. Wright's church, listening to the ranting of Black Liberation Theology. He's nodding his head at everything the whacko preacher says - it's the Jews, the whites, the capitalists, "G-d Damn America"!

It explains why Dear Leader is drawn to the lunatic fringe of international politics so completely. And sadly, we as a nation have followed that path through voting both Dear Leader and his coterie of like minded thugs into office

You know what fascinates me about this Lawhawk? How utterly impotent Obama's foreign policy has turned out to be on this. They couldn't get the Hondurans to back down. They couldn't even control Zeleya. Now all they can do is stand back and tell everyone "no violence"! How pathetic.

Writer X said...

What was particularly poignant was when Obama's teleprompter at the UN said "if you stand for freedom, we'll stand by you..." or something to that effect. Apparently that doesn't mean Honduras or Iran.

I'm not sure if the situation with Zelaya would make for a good thriller or comedy.

LawHawkSF said...

StanH: I see a certain amount of that leftist denial that a dictator is a dictator. He's always some kind of "liberator." And you're right--if the Mossad wanted him dead, he'd be dead.

LL: I think that Obama has indeed bought into at least part of Wright's half-assed theology. When the current Pope was still a cardinal, he lectured the South American bishops in no uncertain terms about the fallacies of liberation theology. Our relations with the Vatican are currently about as strained as they've ever been.

LawHawkSF said...

Andrew: Well said. He can't even get the dictators he wants. But he has guaranteed that this coup attempt isn't going to end with the upcoming elections, since he already declared in advance that the results of the election would be illegitimate unless Zelaya was put back in power immediately. Nice going, Obama. Brilliant diplomacy. You've guaranteed political unrest in Honduras for years to come, giving your friend Chavez time to work his magic on a formerly free republic. The dominoes are beginning to fall in Central and South America, the leftist dictators are winning, and Obama is supporting them.

LawHawkSF said...

WriterX: I don't know if it could be made into an entire movie, but it would have made a great Monty Python routine.

Tennessee Jed said...

Nice aticle, Hawk. Zelaya is another nut case. That picture makes him look like Juan Valdez of Columbian Coffee fame.

Wow, it is getting harder for the libs to find reliable tin pots these days. So Zalaya decides to rag on "those pesky Jews," eh? Can there be any better evidence the Hondurans who threw him out of office should be applauded?

LawHawkSF said...

Tennessee: Thanks for the laugh. I was sure I had seen him before, and now I know where.

I wasn't aware that there was a large Jewish presence in Central America, but you learn something every day. I'm just wondering how they're hiding that Israeli military camp within site of the Honduran capital. Damned clever, these Jews.

I remember a song from the seventies (or eighties) that seems to fit here: "Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right, here I am, stuck in the middle with you." I think that's right where we are with Obama. Zelaya to the left of us, Ahmadinejad to the right, and here we are, stuck with Obama.

LawHawkSF said...

HamiltonsGhost: I think I prefer the one that starts with "They're coming to take me away, ho ho, hee hee." And they'll all be happy going away with the men in the little white coats.

MegaTroll said...

You're so right. Just based on what this guy is saying, we shouldn't be supporting him. This Obama guy's foreign policy is a disaster.

LawHawkSF said...

MegaTroll: Ditto, and more--what the hell is his foreign policy? Does he even have one?

AndrewPrice said...

Lawhawk, I think his foreign policy is a combination of knee-jerk reactions and "how the heck do I avoid doing anything." At the very least, he should have handed off the duties to someone who cares -- maybe even Hillary.

LawHawkSF said...

Andrew: I think that pretty much says it all. Except we could possibly add "will I look good making this announcement?" Would you ever have thought that you and I would consider Hillary to be the best policy-maker in any Democrat administration?
