I Don't Like Hamid Karzai's Hat

I was reading a Reuters article recently that was discussing the recent Afghan election. Apparently the Finance Minister claims that Hamid Karzai, the incumbent has won the election. That, however, is not what bothers me most. What irritates me is Hamid Karzai's signature hat.

Hamid Karzai with Hat

Hamid Karzai without Hat

The hat, known to about every society on earth and throughout history is often an indicator of social status and in the military and church, rank. In the case of both men and women, the choice of hat will influence the opinion the wider world has of you.

So, when I keep seeing Hamid Karzai in photographs, where is nearly always sporting that ridiculous hat, I can't help but think, "this man's hat is affecting the course of the War on Terror; how could anyone wearing that style of hat be taken seriously?"

I suppose my opinion would be changed if many people wore this style of Hat, but he is the only one. In photos that show him around a large number of his countrymen...noone else is wearing this style of hat. Just him.

Karzai with Group of Countrymen

Karzai with Group of Countrymen 2

In the first photo Karzai is the only one wearing that style hat...and if you look closely at the expressions on the faces of the men he is with...they seem displeased; possibly concerning their new leaders sense of fashion. I believe they are thinking, "Are we really about to hitch our lives and fortunes to a man who'd wear a weird shaped hat with an animal skin print?" The metro-sexual image isn't going over well in rugged Afghanistan.

In the second photo, an elderly man is also shown and he appears to be wearing a hat of similiar style, but he appears to be quite unhappy.

This man is getting people killed because of that hat. The average Afghan has no respect for him; Please write him a letter begging him to lose the hat, before we lose the war. Observe the images below...then get that man a new Hat, something that looks good while smoking a Cigar, but as long as Hamid Karzai is wearing that hat and those robes...I don't care how many troops you send to Afghanistan, the effort is lost.

Dear God, you have to be kidding me, you even made a thread on this

Look dude, he is wearing upper-class traditional Afghan clothing. You know why other Afghans don't wear this? Because Afghanistan has no infrastructure and Afghans wear clothes that are homemade or imported (black market is big there).

Considering Afghanistan is now a capitalist democracy, thanks to the US, their government is now a popularity contest (which is what American democracy really is). Karzai is looking his best so that some Afghans delusioned by American ideals can assume that they may too look the same way.

Man, you need some culture shock or something

Culture aside, I like the hat. In highschool I had one of those russian-style furry hats. Sure it was big, but it was warm and fuzzy. These days all you see men wear are baseball caps. Nothing says "I don't care" like baseball cap conformity (please giggle here if you like baseball caps, this is satire). Men's unique style has gone to the wayside in favor of today's version of the cookie-cutter corporate clone.

The hat reminds me of one worn by Eddie Murphy in Coming to America.

He looks better in the hat. Without it, he looks like a priest. Maybe he should wear a Chicago Cubs hat

Well! I can clearly see that you're very upset with Karzai's choice of hat!

And since we all know that a bad hat day can ruin everything in the world of politics, choosing the right hat is not easy!

It's essential for the hat not to clash with the rest of your tribal outfit, personal image & cultural attributes which you are promoting soo hard to maintain when you shine as a corrupt puppet politician of Afghanistan.

So regardless if you're walking the catwalk naked in your palace in front of all your friends a hazy friday night downtown Kabul - or zig-zagging through the minefields of corrupt MSM reporters asking difficult questions about your cousin at one of your press conferences - the hat stays on.

Therefore I can not agree with you that Hamid Karzai has the wrong hat on those pictures; on the the contrary, I think that the hat goes very well with his (hand made by small hands of Afghan child workers) Afghan goat-hair robe and the Afghani upper-class look in general.

They wear these kinds of hats in the region you know
, it's a cultural thing, and the model it's also very popular in nearby regions, like the Kaukasus!

Therefore I don't understand when you are bashing the Hat-Fashion of Afghanistan specifically?

Instead of bashing the Hat-fashion of Afghanistan like some kind of Hat-Fascist-Fashionista of the worst kind! we should really take a deep look at the Hat-Fashion in your own country first!

It's also here we can find the biggest hat-conspiracy of them all, even your political parties & leaders are heavily involved.

Here we have a few scary examples of some really bad color coordination with some of the worst cases of mismatching Hat-Fashion I've seen in my life!

Let's take a look, shall we?

Now we have come to the point where I could say: I REST MY CASE! and end of discussion and so on! because it's clear for all to see that Hamid Karzai's hat actually is a very nice hat that matches his robe - and if you compare to Howard Dean's yellow hat or that picture of you with that silly Mickey Mouse hat with Mouse ears (which by the way totally clashes with your Hawaiian shirt) I would say that you have lost the argument - sorry!

But to fair and to nourish this healthy discussion further, I must say that I never understood what kind of hat you wanted Karzai to wear instead. So to be friendly I'm going to post a few more types of hats from the rest of the world which you can choose from - hell! I even through in a a potpurri of lady-upper class-hats from the British Royal Ascot racecourse so we have a broad field of hats to choose from!

So if you could be so kind my ATS friend, to point out one type of hat that you personally would like Hamid Karzai to wear instead of the one he's currently wearing!

And please! you can't cheat now by saying that you prefer to see him without any hat because that is not going to happen in Afghanistan where they have a very strict hat code for all bald politicians over 40.

Here's a potpurri of hat models (Other foreign political leaders hats included) :

As you see! Karzai's own hat win!

That hat does look extremely out of place for that region, he should be wearing a rag.

That's some classic stuff, dude, totally made my day

Just for the record I was flipping through channels earlier and when I hit CNN there was a random Afghan civilian wearing Karzai's exact hat. I instantly thought of this thread and it's OP

Thanks mate!

Your kind words made it worth the effort!

But the main task still remains, how to find a suitable hat for Mr. Hamid Karzai's Afghan upper-class look that fit well with his goat-hair robes etc!

So I took a look at what the rest of the upper-class and the elite likes and are wearing in general.

Well it seems that the fashion of fur and patterns of exotic animals is a safe card if you want to look "CHIC" and casual while you're on the move to and from your next Bilderberger mingle or NWO meeting.

Here we can see "La Camilla" wearing a Leopard spotted creation that seems to be very popular & in fashion among the elite this year:

And I found this man who has a similar face shape and looks like Karzai's infamous Hollywood cousin - it could be him? but I sadly don't have any proof of this for the moment (yet!) - I'm looking for evidence as we speak - sorry! (so please don't start debunking this just yet)....

Here is a picture of Karzai's cousin wearing his 'spotted Leopard PillBox-Hat' which came to be soo popular in fashion among the Afghani neocon elit & hangarounds this spring and early summer:

(The above picture of his younger cousin is said to be taken by Mr. Karzai himself at a bong-party with his old pals from the UNOCAL oil days visiting the cousin's "Bachelor Crib" in Hollywood Hills earlier this summer! - according to some sources: "they were eating Turkish baclavas and watched cartoons together with four drop dead, gorgeous Eastern-European call-girls (a present from Silvio Berlusconi) when Karzai snapped the photo with his new iPhone")

I think this is the exact model of that hat:

Some other types and important models of the elite's popular spotted Leopard Hats:

For your elite & elegant Afghan Mafiosi body guards - so that everyone can have matching & color coordinated hats - this model were also often used by pesky men in the Gestapo :

For your Naughty & Wild Elite Bohemian Grove Mistress.....Grrrr!

The sophisticated but very discreet Elite-Pimp-Hat:

Here's an exactly similar type of hat as the one that Mr. Karzai is currently wearing now - but Leopard spotted of course!

I actually think that Mr. Karzai would look smashing with this one - a perfect match with the dark goat-hair robe as well:

But here's the real kicker and the Leopard Hat CONSPIRACY!

What does all the ELITE have in common with all these Leopard spotted upper-class hats you might ask?

That's really simple, they all like to wear the skin of endangered species on their evil heads.

How could this be possible? isn't this very disrespectful to the poor animals and vile & morally corrupt, you may ask yourself whilst reading this confusing post of mine?

Some nutty people could now also be wondering about this? and are politely asking themselves and the voices in their heads:

"Why are all the endangered species silent about these atrocities & why hasn't an animal rebellion started yet!...huh?"

"Aren't the endangered animals vey angry and outraged about it? - why do they not loudly protest against all this?"

(well! IMHO I guess this is something they might have to ask God about since I have some difficulties answering those questions?)

Well anyway! it's now everything is starting to get really interesting and we are beginning to see how big and widespread this conspiracy is.

The leading organization in wildlife conservation and endangered species The WWF:

The founder of WWF was a nazi

With the rise of Adolf Hitler, Prince Bernhard's younger brother, Aschwin, publicly declared his support for the Nazi Party. Prince Bernhard was a member of the honorary German Reiter SS Corps (SS Cavalry Corps). The Prince eventually went to work for the German chemical company, IG Farben. Bernhard was a member of the Nazi Party, the Sturmabteilung and a special branch of the SS called the "Reiter SS"- an equestrian sporting organisation. The German-born prince helped found the World Wildlife Fund (later renamed World Wide Fund for Nature), becoming its first president in 1961.

Everyone here on ATS should know who Prince Bernhard is by now (if they have done their homwork, that is!)

Everything about this organization and what they stand for is a pesky scam & monumental fraud!

This Elite Cabal of Organization has one purpose only! and that is to keep ALL THE FUR & SKINS OF "ENDANGERED" ANIMALS FOR THEMSELVES!

(So noone else can shoot & kill striped & spotted exotic animals!)

So for the sole purpose of having access to the skin & fur of dead expensive exotic animals on their heads, and on the bodies of elite wives & mistresses as fur-coats - they LIE to all of us! and instead of saying the truth which is:

"I'm sorry but my ELITE NWO WIFE now wants and demand new dead exotic animal to wrap her old & ugly, wrinkled body with - so I will go with the other MWO ELITE husbands together on a new hunting trip in some tropic land, shooting some "endangered" & exotic animals so our wives will STFU! And then if we're lucky we'll get some of the leftovers to make hats with!".

(very small hands of children workers worldwide are then working with these fur & skins
and are under harsh conditions transforming them to elite luxury coats, hats, belts and other luxury items for the ELITE NWO CABAL!)

To be fair! this is not all there is - at their Castles & Palaces they often also use the dead full bodies of exotic animals as rugs in front of their fire-places as well!

This is a replica Tiger Rug for the peasants to use but mind you, the ELITE are using the real deal - A DEAD TIGER BODY! - that's why there are so few tigers left in the world! - you can find their dead bodies infront of the fireplaces in the Palaces & Castles and country cottages of the pesky ELITE!

That was the main reason why they started this WWF organization in the first place - to keep the peasants and other people away from their access & stashes of exotic striped & spotted animals!

But I think regardless of these terrible facts, that Karzai would look good in one of those exact replicas & spotted Leopard versions of his hat!

So what do you say Finn? can we at least agree on this?

I would like to end this weird discussion with this song by Randy Newman and here performed by Tom Jones:

Karzai - You Can Leave Your Hat On!

Well it seems that Karzai had the right hat for the job after all!

Look! the corrupted and former UNOCAL employee is still President against all odds!

Well according to my sources; they say that the right choice of hat "MIGHT" have been the determining factor in the corrupt election?

So what do you say Finn??

Do you agree with this?

Karzai's hat is called a karacul hat. It actually got some attention in fashion circles some time ago.

However, the making of the hat is not for the faint of heart. It is made from the wool of an unborn lamb.

I will not describe the method for getting it. It is described in the links below so be warned.

Yeah I know! terrible! - innocent lamb killers!

That's just why I proposed a false leopard spotted replica of the Karakul for the President, to help Karzai to be a little more political correct!

Thanks for the interesting links! and thanks for contributing to the hat madness!

Here's also a good description of the hat "Karakul"

But anyway! they are moving forward really fast in the hat-fashion business of today, so lay your hands on one authentic 'Karakul' before it's too late - and before they are all sold out worldwide - every American or Nato soldier can buy one of their own at the markets in Afghanistan for only $35 which is a bargain.

If you buy an authentic now for only $35 - it will be worth a fortune in a near future when the "Elite" will put up the hat on their "endangered WWF animal list" to keep ALL the hats for themselves!

They often do this when some fashion catches on, so to say! - so be early before the trends are really taking off - it's the only way of beating them!

Buy one now and thank me later! - best investment tip this year! promise!
