Politics is about rhetoric. Much of what politicians say is all rhetoric, their promises, their agenda and their actions. We the people are used to this. Even when we are wildly cheering someone along, mentally we are always toning it down a bit because we know that politicians tend to exaggerate.
We recognize rhetoric. We generally filter it out even as we listen to a politician speak. It keeps us sane.
BUT, filtering out what we think is rhetoric is also fraught with danger. Because sometimes the threat may be staring us right in the face and we refuse to recognize it because we think it’s just rhetoric.
So, I was browsing through the madness on Twitter ever since the Modi government came up with the notification on cattle markets. Here is Shoaib Daniyal, the chief intellectual goon at Troll.in
The left today is in a dark place. In this deep dark place, even High Court judgements are broken down by region. They see this verdict as some kind of revolt by a Southern state against alleged oppression coming from the North.
Why such absurdity? What the hell does this have to do with “Dravida Nadu”? And what is Dravida Nadu?
Because today, the left lives and breathes hatred for the Indian nation. They said it very clearly : Bharat ke tukde. Don’t dismiss it as pure rhetoric. They mean every word.
This poisonous agenda has been coming out of every pore.
With every breath, the left struggles for its dream of tearing India apart. North vs South, East vs West, veg vs non-veg, upper caste vs lower caste.
Okay, so, what happens now:
So what do the leftist intellectuals of India do with the Kerala HC order now? Is Kerala going to get kicked out of Dravida Nadu then? But … wait… Kerala with its large support base for Commies is supposed to be ground zero of Dravida Nadu. Ah…what a betrayal!
I know how to proceed. Why don’t leftists dig up the name of the Kerala HC judge in this case? Is he from an “upper” caste? Bingo! Here is the chance to tear India apart on yet another level. Begin a struggle for Dravida Nadu that is free from upper castes. If the judge is not from an upper caste, accuse that specific subcaste of being a “chamcha” of “upper castes”.
You say Dravida Nadu 1, Cow Belt 0.
I say India 1 Leftists 0
I don’t just like that last sentence, I even like the sound of it.
