Okay…I’ll admit it. Although I haven’t blogged about it, possibly since November, I haven’t been able to take my eyes off Trump.
I have made this point before and I’ll make it again. I wasn’t a fan of Trump to begin with. I think there is a lot of basis to the accusation that he is racist and sexist and bigoted, but I am supporting him purely out of spite. During the Vietnam War, radical black Americans refused to go fight for their country. They asked why they should fight for a country that treats them like animals. Their famous slogan was:
“No Vietnamese called me nigger”
Obviously, I despise the Commies of Vietnam, but I understand the sentiment expressed there. For a black American, the Commies of Vietnam are a world away, but the white Americans who insult him everyday are not. Why should he make common cause with his racist white neighbors against an enemy in distant Vietnam that he barely knows?
I’ll say the same about Trump. He may be a racist, but he didn’t hurt me as a Hindu. America is half a world away from the little town in India where I was born. On the other hand, the globalist left is in India, it is in my little town trying to destroy my religion and my country and my history. Why should I join hands with the globalist left in opposing their enemy in a distant country? If Trump hurts the global left, if Trump cuts off their funding, it will weaken the anti-Hindu war of the global left in my country. On the other hand, if people like me support the global left in their battle against Trump, will the left spare my country and my religion? No they won’t. Trump on the other hand, isn’t fighting a war on Hindus. So dear leftists, I hope he sends you all to hell.
Yes, I know I sound zealous. Because I am angry. Why shouldn’t I be, given the relentless assault by the left on the Hindus of India?
Here’s what happened to liberals. Once upon a time, they began a moral crusade against racism and misogyny. Which genuinely made the world better. The world is a lot better today because people of all races have the same rights (in democratic countries). The world is a lot better today because women can vote, can own property and so on and so forth.
But once these causes were achieved, the liberals were left with a vast army with nothing to do. A lot of people were making a lot of money in lucrative NGO jobs of the worldwide protest industry. You couldn’t just tell these people to go home. Protesting was the only profession they ever had. What were they going to eat?
The problem for the liberals was that there wasn’t enough racism around to sustain their industry. So they had to invent it. They had to show people how racism is hiding in the shadows, invisible to all of us. They came up with things like “cultural appropriation”. Basically if a white person likes things from a non-white culture, it’s somehow racist. For example if a white chef is making a Vietnamese soup, he’s a racist. I’m not kidding. See here.
The same went for feminism. When there wasn’t enough misogyny to go around, they had to go around looking for it. Who would believe America is this lawless?
The desired alarm was created by appropriately changing the definition of “rape” to anything feminists wanted it to be. Most of the “rape victims” identified didn’t even know they had been raped. It is the feminists who interpreted the experiences of the women and let them know for the first time that they had been “raped”! But such fake figures are needed to keep the liberal industry running.
The left kept getting away with this nonsense. They realized that words like “bigot” and “racist” and “misogynist” were powerful words. By throwing these labels around, they could get whatever they wanted. So they began to use these words all the time. They kept Crying Wolf.
Until these words lost their power.
That’s when the real wolf came along. He was called Donald Trump. They tried calling him bigot and racist, but people simply laughed those labels off. Don’t they call everyone a bigot and racist and misogynist nowadays?
And yes, this made me glad. It filled me with dark joy:
So Donald Trump decided to ban people from 7 dangerous Muslim countries from entering the United States. Now I will be the first to admit that this adversely impacts millions of completely innocent people.
But you know what? For the first time in decades…literally… I see someone actually shaming the Muslims. I have always wondered why “diversity” only means inclusion of Muslims. When Trump goes to a Diwali meet of Hindu Americans, it somehow means he is siding with “upper caste oppression”. But when a Pakistani Muslim is celebrated at Hillary’s convention, why isn’t it automatically an insult to Pakistan’s Hindu minority? What about them?
I am an upper caste Hindu. I didn’t discriminate against anyone in my lifetime because of her/his caste. But the global left wing machine is constantly grinding me to the ground because of caste injustices. Why do they shame me? What did I do? The one thing closest to my heart is casteless Hindu society that stands together as one single rock. But the globalist left shames me everyday for injustices that I did not commit and injustices that I condemn every single day. Why do they do that? Because the single point agenda of the left is to destroy the Hindu culture of Bharat. Would they ever dare to ask similar questions to their darling community over their treatment of non-believers and women? Never…
But finally, the boot is on the other foot. Trump is shaming the Muslim community worldwide because of Islamist terrorism. It’s about time.
