After two days of dithering, we have a winner. Liberals have picked the man who was really to blame for the Orlando attack. Wonder what took them so long…
Two days ago, when the Orlando shooting story was still breaking, our secular intellectual Rana Ayyub put out this attacking, sarcastic tweet:
Later, as more details about this story began to roll in, Agent Ayyub grew defensive for some mysterious reason… Today it appears that the tweet itself has been deleted. Wonder why…why didn’t Agent Ayyub complete her thought? The best response to this now deleted tweet came from Yashwant:
I must say there are some times when I look at a Mameluk article and break into a broad smile. This is one of those times. This is one of those times when you cannot help but roll your eyes. Here’s the headline in The Quint:
And so does stupidity, but never mind.
Admit it folks. You chuckled too when you read this headline. Who carried out the shooting? A peaceful. Where did the shooting happen? America. In whose name was the shooting carried out? ISIS. Who are the liberals going to blame? Baba Ramdev, of course…
You have to feel sorry for liberals on this one. For long, it has filled me with astonishment, and I am sure you have felt likewise, about the contradiction at the heart of modern liberalism. How can modern liberalism claim to be vocal about equality of women, rights of homosexuals and gender queer persons, free speech, freedom of religion, etc. when it is constantly coddling militant Islam at the same time? How can liberals be in favor of freedom and still support Hamas and Hezbollah against the only democracy in the Middle East? The same goes for liberals and Communism. In India we are used to the unreal spectacle of avowed Commies, cheering fans of Stalin lecturing us on free speech and democracy!! I mean…what’s next, will they raise Heil Hitler slogans to show how much they are opposed to anti-Semitism?
Nevertheless, this working partnership between Communism, elite liberalism and rabid Islamism has blossomed over the years. But the extreme contradictions are bound to bubble up every now and then, causing embarrassment to the zamindars of liberalism. Every now and then an Omar Mateen comes along and sticks the liberals between a rock and a hard place: are they going to make excuses for militant Islamism or stand up for the most basic, fundamental right of homosexuals: to live! How are they going to reconcile this? They can’t blame Islam. After all, Muslims are the helpless oppressed “minority” of 1.6 billion people who control 57 nations across the world; they can’t be blamed for anything. On the other hand, how are liberals going to tell the LGBTQ community that they are passionate about transgender bathroom access, but not about the right of homosexuals not to be mass-murdered by peacefuls?
Should the liberal blame the peacefuls? Should the liberal blame the homosexuals?
There is ONE way out…
Blame Ramdev Baba!
So, how is Baba Ramdev to blame here? This has to be fun… Let’s find out:
Ha ha…nice one. Baba Ramdev should take “responsibility” for his words in the media because someone might walk into a gay night club and kill people. Apparently, Baba Ramdev’s fault is magnified for two further reasons: he has political backing AND he influences millions.
Let’s try this line of argument in other contexts. Let us consider Nitish Kumar’s recent call for a Sangh mukt Bharat.
Political backing for Nitish ? Check!
Nitish Kumar influences millions? Check!
OMG! The next time an RSS worker is slaughtered, you guys now know who needs to take “responsibility”…
And what of all the intellectuals, TV reporters and the like who are irresponsibly promoting this Nitish Kumar? Will they all say sorry to the families of murdered RSS workers and the organization at large? Or will they run away from their responsibility?
What about all these liberals writing everyday spewing venom at the RSS? Will they take responsibility when a Sangh worker is murdered?
So who is this Suhasini Krishnan that wrote this article? Obviously, I can’t be sure this is the same Suhasini Krishnan, but a google search shows that this is just a baby intellectual:
History student at St. Stephens? The nut doesn’t fall very far from the tree, does it? Oh young one, you came to the right place! You are already hanging out with the right crowd at Huffington post. You won’t have to be a student at St. Stephens for long, you have a long rewarding career ahead of you studying gender discrimination at Columbia and all where you can do your graduate thesis on “Why Hindus are monsters”, etc… For history buffs like you, I can suggest a career path in Aurangazeb glorification; it is a hot new field of research that has just opened up…
One more thing you might need is a Twitter account where you can lie in wait for ONE random RW tweeter who throws a word of abuse at you. Then, you can tell the entire world wide web about the trauma caused by that tweet… Then throw in a couple more insults at “bhakts” and you are all set for the big leagues…
