Ha! It’s finally happened. India’s liberal conscience has decided that it’t time to call Tarun Tejpal for reinforcements. Here is the article in Mid-Day calling for a “re-think” on the great anti-communal crusader Shri Tarun Tejpal.
Before I say anything else, let me point out that this is, first and foremost, a slap on the face of the likes of Kanhaiya Kumar and Hardik Patel. Your liberal sponsors have given up on you… You guys tried your best but it simply wasn’t enough. Dear Kanhaiya, they even looked into your pants hoping to find the magical elixir they need to destroy the dragon called Modi. But the fountain of your youth has failed to revive them…
Dear Rajdeep, dear Barkha, dear Sagarika, dear Kumar Ketkar, *this* article is a massive vote of no confidence in your abilities. Liberal India has lost faith in your efforts to take on the Prime Minister. C’mon Rajdeep, all you have offered by way of opposing Modi is one successful fistfight against ONE Modi supporter in faraway New York. Modi has 170 million supporters; was this your grand plan to stop Modi? Fight his supporters one at a time? C’mon genius, even Rahul Gandhi would have thought of a better plan. Other than that, there was the time Raju cried for attention by running away from Twitter for a few days. That’s IT? ROFL!
C’mon Sagarika, your idea of destroying Modi was to take potshots at his shawl? C’mon Mihir Sharma, all you got was whether he was wearing headphones? And Barkha, you have to do better than occasional newsbreaks seeded by “Ankit from IIT”. If these were your grand plans to stop Modi, can you really blame Indian liberals from exploring other options? It was about time they brought in the “big boys” with their big …. ummm … well … fingers … to begin the battle against Modi in right earnest.
So, it is time that you frontline Mameluks out there listened to the whispers coming from your cadre. Listen to what they are saying:
“Has the time come to reassess our response to the Tarun Tejpal THINK brouhaha now that the need for strong liberal voices is called for?”
Hear that? That’s the Mameluk cadre speaking in an unsigned article, calling for “strong” leadership. They want “strong” leadership that really takes on Modi, not the idiots whose best idea so far was to attack Modi’s shawl…
They say desperate times call for desperate measures. This is no time to worry about irrelevant details like rape. After all, what does it matter if some smalltime reporter has to go through a bit of secular rape every now and then? The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. In these desperate times, top level MSM journos cannot get so much as a free ride on the Prime Minister’s plane. Can you imagine the day to day plight of the peeps much lower on the ladder?
“No doubt Tejpal had committed a grave error … but was there really need for such a vociferous dragging through the coals?”
Indeed, this is no time to be hindered by these grave errors. We can take stock of these little grave errors later when life is normal. Even terrorists who had come to do “chota mota blasts” are generally forgiven because of the larger cause of fighting Modi.
And that’s when Modi was just a Chief Minister of one state. Now he is a ruling PM with 281 seats. Can you really expect a liberal to give a damn about these chota mota grave errors now that India is faced with the spectre of Modi’s fascism? You must be kidding.
“This line of thinking has been finding more and more takers especially now when regressive thoughts and actions seem to rule”
Indeed, generations of Indians will look back in shame at that moment in 2013 when the Indian media failed to protect a rapist in their midst. Why did they drag him over the coals? Why didn’t the media do its real job and discredit the character of the victim? What kind of girl from a good family gets into an elevator alone with her boss? Did the media check whether the girl had a boyfriend (and god forbid…even past boyfriends…shudder!!) and came from a good family with good morals? Did the media find out the length of the dress the girl was wearing that day, which might have tempted Tejpal? No, the media didn’t do any of these important investigations properly. And now that Tejpal has gone down the drain, who will save us from the regressive mindset that BJP has unleashed upon the country? Who can we turn to except for the progressive rapists to show us the way ahead…?
As I pointed out before, the *real* news here is the part about “more and more takers” for the Tejpal revival squad. Liberal cadres are upset at the ineptness of their leadership and their blatant failure to dig up dirt on Modi. It is time for Tarun Tejpal, the king of slime, to pick up the battle axe. Let the great warrior wrap his magic fingers around the axe of truth and let out his war cry…It is time for Indian liberals to stop doing penance that lacerates them and start giving out punishment that lacerates their enemies…
And you better learn something, little Kanhaiya Kumar, you don’t expose yourself before a woman and pee like a fool to win the day for liberal values .. you have to use your fingers like a professional…
