Leftist ‘Guru” Deepak Chopra Mocks Sarah Palin in Angry Rant

(digital journal)

Deepak Chopra puts on a great show that he’s some kind of spiritual guru, but at heart, he’s really just your typical angry conservative-hating leftist.
This comes from the Deepok Chopra website, via Free Republic:

It will be a devastating loss if Sarah Palin peddles enough books and visits enough gun shows that she has no incentive to run for President. There would be many chances for unique moments in the White House if she won. How about Sarah on horseback, riding through the Potomac basin like Paul Revere, ringing bells like he did and shouting, “The Democrats are coming!” That would give folks ample warning to quickly cling to their guns and religion before the left wing snatches them away.

I know that she suffered ridicule for her version of Paul Revere’s ride, but from a Hollywood standpoint, she actually improved the story. Movies have soundtracks, in case anyone didn’t notice, and bells are a lot more cinematic than one lantern hanging in a church steeple. Or even two. (You can hear her defense of her version on Fox News, or as my friends call it, the F Channel.)

Since Wall Street’s recklessness plunged us into a national nightmare from which we are trying to awaken, it’s hurtful to say, as some do, that Sarah is the national nightmare. Not true. She is historically inevitable. First there was Teddy Roosevelt’s Bull Moose Party, now there is Sarah’s Shoot Moose Party. And she’s amazingly cheerful about this recession (of course, her own checkbook has fattened, but she has spread the wealth by buying a free shotgun shell reloader for every voter in Alaska).

I have some personal atonement to perform, because in the 2008 election I posted an article saying that Sarah Palin stood for our collective shadow, the pent-up bigotry, hatred, and anger that was suddenly being vented. She was Joe the Plumber’s calendar girl. She was the secret hero of Alcoholics Anonymous, whose slogan is that you can’t recover until you hit rock bottom. President Palin would show us that we haven’t remotely hit bottom yet.

The mistake was mine, though. Sarah would smile her way into the Presidency and then show pointy-head critics the error of their ways. Not that she would ask Americans to turn on one another in vicious divisiveness — been there, done that. With 70% of the public so misguided as to consider her unqualified to be President, she has a bigger job to do than fomenting discord and calling anyone who disagrees with the Tea Party a socialist…

Of course, this isn’t the first time the far left crank attacked Sarah Palin.

  • I heard this idiot on the O’Relly Factor with his equally idiotic son. Why anyone would take this twink seriously is an indication that a degree can paper over stupidity. The only person less qualified to share his viewpoint is that Fareed moron.

  • We conservatives should all be very, very careful of crossing Deepak Chopra. Last year Chopra caused a magnitude 7.2 earthquake in southern California just by meditating carelessly.


    do these lunatics ever listen to their own words and how stupid they really are…he is un-american ship his A$$ out of the USA

  • mg4us

    I think Deepak is hurting from a down Obama economy and the fact that real American’s with spiritual values don’t need him and his liberal, all-about-me ways. . .

    The left is loosing it ’cause their boy Obama is incompetent, Inept, Inexperienced and a radical too. . .like fareed zakaria. . these “phoney-Americans” love our money but hate our country. . . Time to make em go broke and ship them back home penniless. . .

    Sarah is the solution to restoring our America way. . . so all I can say is
    Run Sarah Run!

    Interesting coming from a guy who wrote, among other titles, “The Path to Love” & “Peace is the Way.” Maybe he needs to revisit his own “Quantum Healing.” Physician heal thyself!

  • Conservative to the Core

    Brace yourself, Deepak! You will shortly be in receipt of a white hot, deeply lacerating, 140 character Tweet from Sarah Palin’s Twitter account.

  • Jayms Dalton

    Thought the spiritual guru’s were all about peace and unity. WHAT A FRAUD.

  • a former dem

    The man is a hustler. He is absolutely reviled in India. Why? All his books, speeches are based off of Indian books that already exist, like the Gita, yet those are spiritual books that no one in India makes money off of. Yet the fool comes over here to America, most Americans (drone liberals), go ooooh, ahhhh, spirituality, not realising Chopra used all Indian texts, spirituality books essentially plagerizing.

    A comparable example would be a Christian man going to a nonchristian country, plagarizing the Bible and then making a profit of it.

    Deepak Chopra is absolutely reviled in India.

  • Amjean

    I think one of the unintended consequences of Paling Derangement Syndrom is the
    “outing” of public figures. Those that some looked up to turn out to be “not so nice”.

  • srhoades

    I was writing better satire in sixth grade than this so called “guru”. Of course that’s assuming that he’s attempting satire, for all I know he may just have a juvenile mind.

    I’m giving him too much credit, aren’t I?

  • nell

    I bought one of his earliest books when he was starting out. Sold it in a garage sale. Didn’t keep it long enough to learn how to pull off the delicate balance between ethereal spiritual guru and sly character assassin.

    This moron years ago on Mahr’s show actually said “I don’t really believe anything that I preach”.

    He’s an idiot of the highest degree…

    Perfect case study of passive aggressiveness. Should be published in Psychology Today.

    Yeah Deepak has adapted Indian tomes…next one out will be the “Bagman-Gavita”.
    I find it hard to believe that he talked thru this screed of the top of his head.No, he wrote this one out ahead.

  • JudithNYC

    Do these guys ever look in a mirror before they pontificate their hate? Palin hawking books, yeah, all two of them that preached American exceptionalism,…how many psycho books has this pseudo evangelist snake peddler sold to gullible masses? As for the Revere thing, give it a rest, Palin was historically correct…Deepak only looks more the fool when he decries her based on his faulty knowledge of American history.

    And just to get this off my chest, that day Palin was asked about Paul Revere, when she was casually visiting a Boston bakery & the press were hounding her, was after the press milked her w/ over a dozen interviews which she graciously & spontaneously gave…after all the substantive material she gave them, the press again punches her in the stomach by coming away w/ some frivolous story based on Palin’s quick off the cuff remark…hope Palin denies them any more interviews as their ratings plunge w/o her.

  • driguana

    For someone who is supposed to be peaceful, loving and spiritual, Chopra is a sham and a disgrace. In my humble opinion, Ms. Palin is far more peaceful, loving and spiritual than Chopra could ever hope to be….and she does not sell it as some guritic (yes, I make up words like Palin does, too) path to eternal hapiness.

  • vityaz

    Afraid the public isn’t paying you the attention you so rightly deserve? Afraid you’re just not interesting enough to them to cut it on your own? WELL WORRY NO MORE!

    Insert yourself into the public eye by becoming a PALIN PARASITE!

    That’s right! Guaranteed to work and you can do it in just ONE EASY STEP:

    1) Say something bad about Sarah Palin, the single most hated figure by the U.S. and world media.

    THAT’S IT! As soon as some puerile inanity against Palin comes out of your mouth, the CELEBRITY SPOTLIGHT YOU SO DESERVE AND CAN’T SURVIVE WITHOUT WILL BE YOURS ONCE MORE!



    “A comparable example would be a Christian man going to a nonchristian country, plagarizing the Bible and then making a profit of it.”

    The “Christian man” part aside, you mean someone like Benny Hinn?

    Cut him some slack, folks. The New Agers have finally realized that his methods don’t work and he’s just plain out of ideas (which weren’t his ideas in the first place…) Worst of all, wasn’t he the one who referred to Obama as an enlightened being? I mean, really, how mortifying IS that? So to remain in the public eye, he has to attack someone else in the public eye – Palin today, probably Bachmann tomorrow – Christian conservative women.

    Attacking Christian. Conservative. Women. Yet another idea that’s not original at all. It’s been around for at least 1200 years. Just read the Koran.

    No, that would actually be money.

    Who cares what this Oprah has-been IDIOT has to say?? Why does he think he is even relevant???

  • Greg

    Another mentally unstable, unhinged Progressive elitist who hates Sarah Palin’s values. What a shame she doesn’t support the abortion genocide on babies like all the liberated (immoral) Progressives who want to control every single aspect of our lives. Chopra clearly is just another poser, like Barry Sotero.

    Deepak Chopra, he’s like so, super cool!!!!

    What is obvious, by his comment about alcoholics anonymous, is that he knows nothing about the organization, which fits in with the rest of his know nothing rant.

  • tru

    Chopra told Playboy that he’s fallen out of love with Obama and thinks he should be a one term persident. Like all on the left, he’s terrified of Palin and Fox news.

    Just another jealous leftwing jackass.

    It seems that deepak is just another unhappy little fat man with mommy-issues who’s trying to curry favor with the unwashed leftist masses and his leftist masters.

    While he’s busy scrabbling around under his masters’ table, looking for scraps and begging for handouts, someone should tell him that the left is famous for shooting their useful idiots whenever they’ve been able to take over.

    Decades ago, the great Ravi Shankar brought his sitar and the wealth of Indian music to America. In time, others adopted the sitar. The worst of them played the sitar as though it was a six string guitar. Phonies.

    Today, we have Deepak Chopra who has taken the spiritual wealth of India and played it as though it was a six string guitar.

  • crypticguise

    It sounds like Deepak’s chakras have been shuffled into a confusing mess of cognitive dissonance. Perhaps he should meditate and “chill”. Phoney bas**rd.

    Lemme see … Deepak Chopra, of all people, is getting snarky about someone peddling BS books? Really?

    To paraphrase Mark Twain, it’s a wonder God suffers such hypocrisy, what with lightning so cheap.

    Isn’t Deepak the name of the cretin who killed Natalie Holloway? And who is buying Deepak’s books and going to his seminars? Are these people total morons? The only thing I can come up with is that it’s mob mentality – just like Ann Coulter says!

    Sarah drives lefties absolutely bonkers . . . . and I love it!! The more they rant about her, the more her books sell! Beautiful, indeed!

    Rush said the other day that feminists (ostensibly) want women to have it all: a family, a career, a big house, a fancy car, and when a woman like Sarah does, they attack her relentlessly! It’s hilarious!

  • Docrambo

    Not only is this guy deranged, he is just one big pus_ _. Wimpy Indian men are severely threatened by females who can beat them up, out run them, out shoot them, and out think them. Also, I think her books are out selling his.

    The Shoot Moose Party and passing out free shotgun shell loaders to all Alaskans is a bad thing? He must have forgotten to add, shooting Wolves. = more Moose and, around here, Cattle.

    I heard Deepak once say that the secret to Inner Peace is to finish what you start.

    So, before heading out to-day, I checked the medicine cabinet and finished all the Percocet, Tussionex, and Paxil prescriptions. I checked the refrigerator, and finished the cheesecake, the cold fried chicken, and the vanilla-bean ice cream. I checked the liquor cabinet, and finished the half-empty bottle of Jack Daniel’s. I checked the humidor, and finished off the Cohibas.

    You know, Deepak was right. You have no idea how effing good I feel! Whoohoo!

    Please pass this along to anyone who needs some Inner Peace.

    Gee Chopra, I always wondered who writes your material, because listening to you for 2 minutes, it’s apparent you haven’t an original thought in your head. Good for you, you can copy spew! Jealous much?

  • Gagblue

    Deepak is from India, where the people worship cows. I hope on his next trip he’ll bring some of those holy cows back – I hear they make the tastiest burgers!

    Deepak is/was critical of doctors who prescribe drugs, and he was a friend of Michael Jackson, who died from a drug overdose. Draw your own conclusion(s).

    Why are people listening to this charlatan? Stop giving him money!

  • peggy

    Looks like Deepockets Oprah-Chay is a wee bit jealous
    that Sarah is raking in more $$$ than he is.
    If that is not the case, then I would say the rambling is probably due
    to early onset dementia. He should do his demented rambling on PBS
    where no one would notice because it would blend in with all the
    rest of the demented ramblers on PBS

  • SD

    this is actually a tragic missed opportunity. I have attended lectures given by Deepak Chopra and I am very sure that he is sincere and is trying to bring spiritual wisdom, and health through Ayurvedic principles, to the West.

    Deepak Chopra is profoundly entrepreneurial. He is the definition of capitalism at its best. He’s unbelievably smart. He combines disciplines and practiced as an endocrinologist for years. He teaches, “give what you want to receive” in his book, Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, and that we should rejoice when our rival has a success. I think he is an awesome person.

    However, somehow he has never been taught the principles of freedom, a free market economy, or the importance of private property rights in the creation of prosperity (read THE NOBLEST TRIUMPH, by Tom Bethell, it’s brilliant).

    Somehow dear, and I mean that, dear Deepak, in all his travels, and all his meetings with amazing, world-class humans, has never been taught how freedom and free markets support and coordinate with the unseen, vast powers of the Universes to create wealth, prosperity and well-being for more and more people — MORE PEOPLE.

    That a man this brilliant and intellectually curious remains utterly unaware of the functions of freedom and free markets in improving living conditions for ALL is, it seems to me, a horrible indictment of our culture.

    Apparently he has no idea that the NYT, The Washington Post, the LA Times, and all the other usual suspects are keeping this information from him.

    With many of my dear (and I mean that) dear liberal friends, I see that they are “low-information liberals,” and I see that they would rather not know. So I don’t try to tell them. I just know what they do not know.

    However, Deepak Chopra is a man of brilliance, intellectual curiosity and honesty, who searches for the TRUTH. He really loves the truth. I think if anyone, anyone at all, had mentioned the role of freedom in creating prosperity, he would have wanted to understand.

    So I conclude that our culture has completely failed him.

    It’s like seeing the Dalai Lama AGAIN announce that he is a communist because he has morals, and he believes that capitalism has no morals. He is without a clue! “Capitalism” is just a word made up by Leftists to make us think that there is some big “capitalism” plan, like central planning in communism and fascism and all statist dictatorships.

    “Capitalism” just means free markets. Free markets are organic. Individuals dream their bliss and act. The Universes weave their magic in, around and under our dreams and make them come true.

    Just as you would never expect someone in the local bus company to plan everyone’s route to work each morning, or someone in an office to plan what everyone may buy at the grocery store each week, a cursory examination of the disasters of central planning shows us that central planning can’t work and it will never work and it is just a ploy to get the poor suckers to relinquish their autonomy.

    The Left (very rightly) criticizes the failures (and there are many failures) of free markets. there are failures because we fail to do our best and be our brother’s keeper and follow the Golden Rule.

    But the Left proceeds, with its statist solutions, to make everything worse and everyone poorer and less free. Plus, aggrandizing all that power into the hands of a few opens the door to corruption on a whole new scale. The politicians and their lackeys “reward their friends and punish their enemies.”

    THINK for a moment: why is the Dominican Republic so much more prosperous that Haiti? (read Dead Aid.) WHY is the USA more prosperous than Mexico? (read The Noblest Triumph.) WHY is India starting to become more prosperous now that it is not so statist? WHY is Russia’s president himself turning more and more to the need for private initiative?

    The fact that a man of Deepak Chopra’s caliber can live in the USA for most of his adult life and not have stumbled upon The Road to Serfdom or The Tempting of America or The Noblest Triumph or Reagan’s An American Life or David Mamets’ new book, Secret Knowledge, or any of the other brilliant books that would help him to understand freedom and free markets is a great tragedy and a terrible indictment of our “intellectual” elites and Leftist popular culture.

    I wish Deepak and everyone who reads this comment every good thing and all success. I hope Deepak will exercise his amazing intellectual curiosity on this topic.

    When one awakens from the Leftist sleepwalking paradigm, one finally sees (as most of us have seen after we awoke to these truths) what the “real personal atonement” turns out to be. And then we start trying to educate ourselves to protect freedom. NAMASTE.

  • Sardondi

    I can’t find these remarks in any post at Chopra’s website, and your link/the Freep link is bad. I suspect that Chopra, perhaps along with his knotted chakra, has meditated deeply and so very spiritually on the matter. And thus this particular post on Palin has mysteriously, if conveniently, been translated into spiritual form, and has spirit-traveled to that unknown and deeply soulful place of non-being in which pixils are invisible, known to The Ancients as The Realm of Watta-loada-crappa, but which we in the West know as “The Memory Hole”.

  • CJ

    “I think Deepak is hurting from a down Obama economy…”

    This poster may have been kidding but I honestly think this is part of the story. Not much spare money for gurus when your income is down and the price of so many things you really need is going up.

    SD, it’s irrelevant how wise or spiritual he is. None of this matters. We’re talking numbers here. Cold, hard numbers. And those numbers tell me that all the crap the US left wants has already failed in the EU or is on the edge of failing, horribly. It’s that simple. It doesn’t need “wisdom” or “spirituality”. It needs “knowledge” and “reality” and this wannabe guru fails in both regards.
