Osama Withdraws Endorsement of Dems, Still Uses Their Talking Points

Osama Bin Laden, in a video that was intercepted by the U.S. before being released on the internet, is apparently cross with the Democrats for failing to surrender as they promised in 2006.

That's the story at Captain's Quarters, where Ed Morrissey notices that OBL still seems to take his talking points straight from the Dems. He talks about globalization, the Kyoto accords, global warming woes, and the recent mortgage crisis as a result of capitalists oppressing the poor.

Actually, I think it’s rather praiseworthy of the Democrats that Bin Laden has withdrawn his endorsement. But I’m not sure they see it that way. I think they’re secretly stinging from this most recent rebuke.

But, at least the main scream media refused to pile on. This AP story, for instance, despite its length, never mentions OBL's apparent disappointment with the Democrats' fecklessness. Instead, they emphasize the talking points, and the headline is "Osama Slams Capitalism." And they mention that he endorses Noam Chomsky as worthy of our consideration as a leader to follow.

In other words, they play along with the propaganda.

But Morrissey is, um, more skeptical. He mocks OBL's invitation to embrace Islam coupled with the mention of a 2.5% dhimmi tax.

Isn't that sweet? If we just agree to live as slaves under our new Taliban masters, we can finance our homes at a flat 2.5% fee. Think of how liberating that will be! Well, except for the burqas, the barbers, the end of music, dancing, Judaism, Christianity, voting, the press, the 13th-21st centuries, science ...

Not to mention that the Bill of Rights and the U.S. Constitution would be repealed, replaced by Sharia Law and the establishment of Islam as the State Religion. Or is that too obvious to point out?
