Knowing Sadanand Dhume – Nastiness Ad Nauseum?

September 2, 2012

Sadanand Dhume (SD) writing in American makes a pitch that the Indians in the US should vote Republican Party. The shallowness and factual short comings in his position are being highlighted here. One can also get a glimpse of the agenda SD types push.   SD writes

And in general, Republicans have greater clarity about the threats democracies such as India face from the rise of an authoritarian China and the resurgence of radical Islam.

Dhume is deliberately muted on xn fascist evangelism and its threat to democracy. Apart from subverting state apparatus under Sonia Maino, Christian evangelist initiatives have seen an over drive converting naïve natives, and driving a malicious demographic offensive in large parts of India. Insidious evangelist conversion is a zero sum game and remains a greater threat than radical Islam in undermining native Indian well-being – as far as scale goes, today, Islamic radicalism is restricted to radicalizing Muslims; Christian evangelist initiatives go deeper in terms of their impact and subversion. Influential republicans have tended to back evangelist agenda. While Christians encourage Hindu versus Muslim narrative, christians at least since 1500s, have played a significant if not dominant role in shaping India’s destiny.

Others still may simply prefer the gaudy identity politics of the Democratic Party to the GOP’s quieter acceptance of all as Americans.

Juvenile attempt by Dhume here to hide Republican party’s “Christian” identity politics?

The overwhelming majority of Indian-Americans are economic refugees who fled the wreckage of Nehruvian socialism for greener pastures.

Dhume deliberately omits here the enabler of economic abyss – nehurivan sickularism. And that Indian poverty was an outcome of Islamic and much more significantly xn imperialisms.

That both Jindal and Haley tend to wear their conversion to Christianity on their sleeves obliquely sends the message to some that the largely Hindu and Sikh Indian-American community may not be entirely welcome.

Dhume has resorted to malicious obfuscation here. Nimrata Randhawa was not a typical Christian convert. She was a proud Sikh. Even her marriage followed Sikh procedures. Reality of pervasive Christian intolerance in polity and smear innuendos made the proud Sikh reluctantly acknowledge herself as a Christian.

By nominating a Mormon to run for the presidency, the GOP has punctured the myth that it belongs only to fundamentalist Christians.

Irrelevant straw man pitch by Dhume here. GOP nominating a Mormon is different from GOP nominating a Rajiv Malhotra. While some Christians may consider Mormon to be less/un Christian, most Hindus/Sikhs, let alone Christians, would see a Mormon with their belief in bible and christ as Christian enough.

Moreover, no reasonable person can gainsay the fact that America’s prosperity and proud tradition of religious liberty owe their existence to a society built on a bedrock of Judeo-Christian values.

Dhume’s gloves are out. Prosperity and Liberty as outcomes of xn values is sophistry at it nastiest. Dhume skates on thin ice here and falls flat. Dhume uses “gainsay” instead of “deny”.  Did he think subconsciously that his charlatan-giri here would not get noticed? A reasonable person just needs to consider the following questions to unplug Dhume’s chicanery here: Isn’t islam a uber-judeo-xn ethic? Will judeo-xn values take America to a medieval hell-hole? And has liberation theology got nothing to do with judeo-xn values? Was there biblical justification of segregation and slavery and sending natives to settlements? “Judeo-xn values” sophistry pushed by the pretentious is a stinking lemon if there was one particularly in the light of christian resistance to Science and the efforts to stop and undermine teaching of evolution. Readers should notice the similarity between Dhume gloves and Amartya Sen take on xn schools.

Closing Comments: Binary stereotypes and sophistry – small/large govt, pro/anti choice, and ‘bipartisanship is good’ type narratives pushed in the US have limited utility and often help camouflage reality. This piece is not to value judge Romney or Obama. Jimmy Carter et al are as “Christian” as they come. Evangelist goals received strong support in Clinton administration as well. An American, including the Hindu would be well off making their voting decision based on the ideas presented, track record of the candidates, influential party stakeholders and chose the better option. Christian extremism remains a factor in the US polity and undermining that would mean good for the Americans. Fox TV/Sarah Palin type “family values” is euphemism for “christian values”; while Sean Hannity etc try and work up a frenzy on “Big Government”, what they censor is their position for “Big God”, a slippery path with a track record of causing incalculable harm to humanity, no different from Shariah hell-holes.

Tailpiece: There is a small section of motivated and pretentious HINOs often with links to dubious moneybags that parrot out of context xn west republican/conservative lines for India– secular/center right etc. Most of this agenda peddlers are quintessential sepoy types of another variety and often anti-Hindu. The gullible Hindu is the audience for this chicanery and disinformation.

Shubh Deepawali and Political NGOs

October 13, 2009

Come diwali and we see many rodents coming out from their underground burroughs.

Essentially these are of two types: (a) Xian (b) Communist

One will shout that Diwali causes pollution, exploits child labor. Another will hector that crackers cause cancer. Rogue big media which is funded by isaiislamilaal syndicates will play along magnifying the noise. Children especially are targetted to be brainwashed and natives trained to hate their own traditions.

Of course you will not find of any of these organizations making any brouhaha on Hajj journey, which results in most collosal wastage of resources (both personal and worse taxpayer’s). Also come December and the collossal wastage of energy and cutting of trees (green house emission anyone?) that accompanies the non native abomination, xian celebration of great hoax (virgin conception indeed?), aspects that never get critiqued let alone questioned. India is a strange place where pure evil deceits in action that cheat natives dont get questioned, worse get eulogized. One does not get to see in the media how Christian & islamic food habits are not just unhealthy but have been cited in global warming.

The real reason Diwali gets targeted is this: To undermine native Indian traditions and beliefs. There is another raisondetre for targeting native Indian festivities: During holi, native children use water gun, and in Diwali, toy guns, fireworks. For natives both the festivities represent lot of fun. Enemies of natives seek to completely enervate natives and cut down Khatriya/Khalsa spirit, which totalitarians see as a threat and want to see fully neutered. Christian fascists have achieved great success in neutering Hindus because of mediocre leadership among natives.

This criticism of native traditions happens as muslims use crackers during Eid, xian fascists Diwalify their great hoax (use crackers on x-mas). And appropriate  native traditions like ‘Vijayadashami Aksharabyas’, claiming them xian. Dont fall for the  canards spread by christian groups wearing native/irreligious/social-service masks like ‘asha‘, ‘worldvision‘ etc.

Government would do well to ensure Xians/muslims are forbidden from using crackers for their festivals. It isnt their tradition. Bennet and Coleman, Andhashradha Nirmulan Samiti kind of charlatans would do well to rake up and eradicate superstitions that make up islam/xianity for betterment of India/world. Too many people go around that believe in hoaxes like virgin giving birth, flying in winged horse to heaven, dead men coming back from the graveyard et al.

As for my dear native Indian (Hindu, Jain, Sikh) friends, paraphrasing Deng, in native Indian tradition, to be prosperous and happy is glorious. Enemies of happiness, those who create and peddle poverty and sin are the enemies of native Indians, in case of India (rogue groups like communists/CON party [congress I (isai)].

So, dear reader, celebrate the triumph of Dharma by lighting up your home, wearing your new clothes, and by lighting your seven shots, your flower pots, zameen chakers, sparklers and by exploding your crackers. It is Indian government’s Hydrogen Bomb that was a dud, not the ones from Sivakasi. Do ensure that your security remains paramount by maintaining distance from crackers, and that crackers are handled under adult supervision. And that loud decibel crackers maintain distance from infants and senior citizens. BJP/Sangh leaders, native organizations with funds would do well to contribute lights, new clothes, crackers for poor people and light up happiness in their homes.

Shubh Diwali
