Bush Derangement Syndrome Infects Mayan Priests

They are going to "purify" an archaeological site after President Bush visits:

GUATEMALA CITY - Mayan priests will purify a sacred archaeological site to eliminate "bad spirits" after President Bush visits next week, an official with close ties to the group said Thursday.

"That a person like (Bush), with the persecution of our migrant brothers in the United States, with the wars he has provoked, is going to walk in our sacred lands, is an offense for the Mayan people and their culture," Juan Tiney, the director of a Mayan nongovernmental organization with close ties to Mayan religious and political leaders, said Thursday.

Bush's seven-day tour of Latin America includes a stopover beginning late Sunday in Guatemala. On Monday morning he is scheduled to visit the archaeological site Iximche on the high western plateau in a region of the Central American country populated mostly by Mayans.

Tiney said the "spirit guides of the Mayan community" decided it would be necessary to cleanse the sacred site of "bad spirits" after Bush's visit so that their ancestors could rest in peace. He also said the rites -- which entail chanting and burning incense, herbs and candles -- would prepare the site for the third summit of Latin American Indians March 26-30.

Meanwhile, Hugo Chavez is stoking American hatred in Latin America:

President Bush and his left-wing nemesis Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez squared off on dueling tours of Latin America on Friday as they vied for the region's hearts and minds.

The ideological rivalry intensified as Bush arrived in Uruguay, the second stop of his tour, while Chavez drew support from thousands of Argentines at an "anti-imperialist" rally across the River Plate in neighboring Argentina.

Chavez led the crowd of union workers and leftists in shouting "Gringo, Go Home!" against Bush.

The nutroots must be pleased as punch.

Bush's disastrous trip to Latin America is more proof of how universally reviled our President and American foreign policy have become. This is undoubtedly the lowest point of American power and prestige in the world that our country has ever experienced. We have fewer friends, and more enemies who will be celebrating wildly when the terrorists hit us again.

It's going to take decades to repair the damage that Bush has done to our position in the world.

Yeah, if I were living in another failing miserable country, I too would hate Bush. He loathes our enemies and he's giving us a damn fine economy and Americans are doing fine. Pretty hard to take when your own country is caving to the terrorists and the economy is in the tank.

Again, I'd hate him too.

Pure lefty myth. This country received just as much world condemnation while Clinton was in office as President Bush does now.

The only difference is the left didn't pay attention to it back then.

I'm going to have to light an incense to purify this thread of left wing propaganda.

Remember in high school when the geeks, the band nerds and the general "outcasts" would all look over at the cafeteria table where the cheerleaders and the award winning atheletes were sitting? Remember the pure envy you libs felt? The hatred, yet at the same time the longing to be one of those people?

That's how the rest of the world looks at us. They hate us, because they long to BE us.

When the Republicans through away the Presidential election in '08 and we get a Democrat, this isn't going to stop.

It isn't Bush that's reviled. Its been the US. These sentiments existed before 2001. The only thing different is that the Left in our country has worked hard to reinforce their demonization of America. Although many think they've been reinforcing the demonization of Bush. Its really been America they've been punishing.

Of course, the media won't beat items like this to death like they do for Bush. They'll cover over the contempt much of the world has always helled for us, until it serves a purpose for them again.

I am not aware that there is any "Mayan" culture left, or even a significant group of people calling itself or being "Mayan."

I think we're being had by race baiters.

Essentially the same thing Jo and JPM, jumpinjoe, and Robert have pointed out here is exactly what is going on.

You can read today's La Prensa editorial (Nicaragua's premier newspaper, superbly run and written) to see that it has always been thus, and that there are books on the topic of "Anti-Northamericanism" that shows it's the same characters on the Left, the faux populists, both here and oversears, who create largely false impressions.

La Prensa asks the essential question: Why do thousands of Latin Americans seek to come here every year, if the U.S. is so repulsive.

You know the answer.

Niger's top export is raw uranium, so when Iraqi sent a trade delegation to Niger, the purpose, by logical extension, was to buy uranium.

Here is one for Rush fans on why Bush is going to Columbia to buy coke.

The Dominican Republic is well know for it's male prostitution trade (specializing in young boys), or at least that is what is reported.

Rush goes to the DR for a "Boys Only" weekend with a bottle of Viagra, so by logical extension, Rush likes to receive "ditto-head" from young boys.

WildWillie: Brutal dictator? Substantiate please. Anti-democratic demagouge with designs on becomming a dictator: OK. But what's this brutality of which you speak?

Is Chavez really the brutal dictator and hero to the left that he's made out to be? He has yet to catch up to Robert Mugabe, and he has to start working hard to reach the level of Castro, and even harder to even be mentioned on the same page as Pol Pot or Stalin.

Yes, Barney, you've just created an example of the "Ugly American" by wrongly stereotyping Columbia.

I believe there is even more cocaine coming out of Bolivia now; and they have a leftist President who actually is a coca farmer, and has legalized it in trade.

There are many brave and good people in Columbia, and the crime and murder rates have come down so much now that you are more likely to be kidnapped or murdered in Mexico than in Columbia.

Barney, you just aren't too sharp, are you? And your stupid analogy about Bush buying coke is conclusive proof.

89, you want to wait until Chavez becomes another Pol Pot before you denounce his ruthless dictatorship?

You obviously don't know what the hell is going on in Venezuela.

We have a number of friends who live there, friends living here now who fled, and friends who travel there. It is becoming another Cuba, but with oil wealth. At least Fidel was too poor to matter these last years.

Chavez is another, more dangerous matter. You have no civil liberties in Venezuela now unless you are a member in good standing of Chavez's political party.

Using lefty logic.........

Barney obviously admits that an Iraqi delegation did seek trade relations with Niger but must justify in his mind that maybe, just maybe it was for other products that Niger produces other than yellowcake.

But it sounds like you are getting educated here and now admit it was for yellowcake despite the fact Iraq was under sanctions prohibiting that country from seeking these materials.

Since it pains you to come around to admitting the truth, the best you can do is equate President Bush's trip to Columbia with cocaine.

But at least another regular lefty admits it....in his own simplistic way.

But equating Bush's trip to Colombia with cocaine wasn't the best he could do. Did you miss the bit about little boy prostitutes?

Just looove how lefties elevate a conversation by bringing in deviant sex.

Fact... anti-Americanism has been a staple of the world for as long as America existed. The idea that somehow people hate us because of George Bush is dependant on the fact that the people making the charge only remember what they were around to see.

And yes, it's delightful and quaint when people in other countries think we care.

Gee I wonder what the street value of 545 metric tons of pure coke is?

Hey Barney, you heard of Webb's book?

Not that fiction is anything to be prudish about since it's necessary to present bad stuff too. In fact, I read a book yesterday by a woman I know doesn't agree with me on politics and it included rape, prostitution and boy-child prostitution and one of the "good guys" was the pimp. I'd recommend it, actually, "Brother to Dragons, Companion to Owls." Oh, and murder and stuff too. By Jane Lindskold.

So grow up, please. Though I doubt you will or can. All's fair, after all, if it's in service of BDS. Must be nice in that place where you can be as hateful in a guilt-free way. (Coulter implied someone was a faggot, you said "Rush likes to receive "ditto-head" from young boys." Which seems to mean a lot to you but only means that you're worse than Ann. Grats, honey, you should be so proud.)

Sy, Dems are "live and let live" kind of people (as long as it is legal).

If Rush wants to pay for sex with boys (hopefully of legal age in the DR) than more power to him.

It is the hypocrisy from the right that bothers me. Ann calls Edwards a faggot (last year she called Gore a fag) but at CPAC she takes a picture with a gay male prostitute. Which is it Ann? At the same conference, the same mention gay prostitute was honored.

Rudy was married to his cousin for 12-years. Newt was cheating on his wife. Reagan cheated on his wife and abandoned his son (same with Rudy it must be the Reagan legacy).

Republicans cant have it both ways. Take a stand!

We are standing, Barney, just not where you think we are standing. You can't make up stuff about what you believe is important to other people and then crow about hypocrisy when they don't comply with something that was never true.

Now you know it's true because it says so in block quote above. It is written therefore it is so.

Both scenarios are hilarious, and should be laughed at.

From Ralph Peter's column today:

Message: Bush is hated. He's ruined our relations with the hemisphere. Nobody loves us anymore - and it's all his fault.

Well, venceremos, muchachos, and no pasdaran!

If you bothered to read the reports below the headlines, you learned that 6,000 Brazilians had gathered in Sao Paulo to protest Bush's arrival in their country.

Wait a minute - wasn't that 600,000? Or at least 60,000?

Nope. Just 6,000 outraged citizens. Out of Brazil's population of 200 million."

Similar numbers in Argentina. Anybody still feel that the MSM report on Bush straight up? Sheesh.
