"Dalai Lama says Chinese hardliners have parts of brain missing"

Via Drudge:  Chinese hardliners have parts of their brains missing, exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama said in an interview aired this week, comments likely to infuriate Beijing, which views the Nobel Peace laureate as a dangerous separatist.

The Dalai Lama, who fled into exile in India after a failed uprising against Chinese rule in 1959, denies espousing violence and says he only wants genuine autonomy for Tibet.

The animosity between the two sides, and their rivalry for control over Tibetan Buddhism, is at the heart of the debate about reincarnation.

Speaking to U.S. comedian John Oliver in India's northern town of Dharamsala, where the exiled Tibetan government is based, he also said he might be the last Dalai Lama.

"Very possible," he said. "If I become the last Dalai Lama, I feel very happy."

Tibetan Buddhism holds that the soul of a senior lama is reincarnated in the body of a child on his death.

Asked if he was worried China might appoint its own Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader said it would be foolish.

"Our brain usually, you see, has the ability to create common sense," he said. "The Chinese hardliners, in their brain, that part of the brain, is missing."

The Dalai Lama. Now, that is an interesting character. He looks like he was cast out of Hollywood.

Obama had him going out the service entrance of the White House. Let's see what Trump does.

First of all why are the Chinese Communists called hardliners? They're communists. Which is important to establish because communism denies God and therefor denies that there is anything divine in humans, that they have souls. So when the Dalai Lama says they lack common sense, with all due respect to the Lama they lack a heart. They are materialists, which is to say that you and I are material to them, nothing more. Which explains what they've done to Tibet. Which also explains what the communist rulers of the West have deliberately done to Europe and America.

Dalai should be worried about his own brain parts as he is a self proclaimed Marxist.
In fact he could challenge the current Pope to a game of “Quien Es Mas Marxo?”.

I guess everybody else is busy also. I'll be back home soon in another hour or two

The Lama is a perpetual nose picking five year old kid. He's also a charismatic idiot.
