This is more of a reflective post. It was spurred by this report of Commies executing a 4 month old imperialist spy in public with a hammer and burying it in front of it’s mother. Read and cry:
“Maoists in Bijapur district of Bastar region hammered a four-month-old baby with a rod in front of his mother till it bled and gasped to death. The guerrillas then buried the infant near their camp, while the mother screamed and begged for its life.”
Oh well…another day…another murder by another liberal terrorist that passes by without any comment from the guardians of the idea of India.
There are two things that I find most ironic about the politics of our country. The first is that even after 1000 years of slavery, Hindus of India are unable to unite for the cause of the country, which happens to be the only motherland we have. We lose Pakistan, Bangladesh, Kashmir and see Assam, Kerala and West Bengal slipping out of our grasp before our eyes, but don’t really care. The idea of India brigade is so supremely confident in large scale Hindu inaction that they openly laugh in our face, they brazenly sing praises of Yakub Memon and make us feel ashamed for celebrating Diwali or Holi.
The second thing that I will never understand about India is the insidious success of the Commie Left in “normalizing” its propaganda within our daily life to the point that we do not notice it any more. For instance, the BJP today is still being pushed to a corner in liberal discourse because 3 decades before the BJP was born, a person who might have been an ex-member of the BJP’s parent organization killed Mahatma Gandhi! Add to that the apocryphal story that 7 decades ago, RSS leaders of 2-3 generations ago might have been influenced by some views of some people who had found something good about the Nazis! For god’s sake…the RSS-BJP is still defending itself from such strange accusations to this very day!!!
So, what do I mean by “normalizing” Commie propaganda? Can you imagine someone starting a party called the Nazi Party of India (Hitlerist) or NPI(H)? It would be frontpage news not only in India, but across the world, bringing tremendous shame to our country. Can you imagine any intellectual, any news editor, any reporter, any journalist, any scientist, doctor, executive or any decent human being allowing NPI(H) to offer its views on any respectable forum? Can you imagine NPI(H) being invited to any TV debate or conference? Of course not, because, as a society, we have accepted that Nazism must be rejected in every possible form…
Now, here is what I wonder about Commies. How come we as a society do not have the same visceral reaction to the Communist Party of India (Marxist) as we would have towards a Nazi Party? How come Commies get to fly the dreaded hammer and sickle with such careless abandon? Is the hammer and sickle not a symbol of death to literally hundreds of millions? Is the hammer and sickle any less than the dreaded Nazi swastika? The CPI(M) and CPI openly glorify Stalin and they are national parties: how come glorification of Stalin is not seen in the same league as glorification of Hitler? The Commies get invited to give their views on TV, they freely mingle in civilized society. How come?
Somehow, Communist views have managed to attain a level of respectability in our society that Nazi views have not, even though both are equally evil. And in terms of the body count, the Commies have kicked Nazi ass. And yet, in civil society and public discourse, the Commies have managed to get a pass. This massive PR victory for Commie ideology is one of the greatest ironies of India. We talk about Muslims being pampered in liberal discourse, but who can possibly match the extent to which the Commies are pampered? At least when a crazy Muslim holds up an ISIS flag, people comment on it. At the very least, it gets condemned. At least we agree that the ISIS point of view should not be part of public debate. Does society have the same reaction when a Commie shows a red flag with a hammer and sickle? In fact, in every corner of this country, you can find an openly Communist union. Can you imagine unions affiliated to ISIS or to the Nazis? How did we manage to let the Commies achieve such an incredible public relations coup? How did they manage to give Stalin’s and Mao’s and Pol Pot’s and Naxals’ massacres a modicum of respectability?
Let’s think about it.
