What is going on in India

Post by Mo »

Jesus Christ, Modhi is turning out to be an even bigger despot than previously expected. The recent events in Kashmir were pretty bad, but the recent moves to strip millions of Muslims of their citizenship is ridiculous. Unfortunately, the two countries that could exert any sort of pressure on India are being led by pro-despot morons.

Puts a different shine on all those articles fawning over India's democracy back during the election. :/

Hindu neighbors stand guard to protect a Muslim wedding during violent protests
Wajid Fazal told Reuters he had fixed the wedding of his niece, Zeenat, the next day and was inclined to cancel it because of the violence.

“I was in a dilemma thinking about the preparations we had done,” Fazal said in a telephone interview. He said Hindu neighbors came forward and promised to remain at the venue to ensure nothing untoward happened.
“About 40 Hindu brothers were at my house until we bid farewell to my niece in the night,” he said.

“I will never forget this favor.”
Anoop Tiwari, one of the men who helped organize the Hindu group at the wedding, is a member of Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

“The BJP never discriminates,” he told Reuters.
Uh, Anoop...

I thought she simply meant that it's fine to say "Toll could go up further", as opposed to "Toll could go down" which would be unfine.

Jonah Goldberg had Oriana Skylar on his The Remnant podcast the other week to talk about all things China. Worth a listen if you want the Cliff Notes on the current political situation.

I thought it was a sarcastic statement along the lines of "Yeah, definitely nothing messed up here. No sirree. We're all fine. Everything's fine here. How are you?"

Great. So after all the home-reorganizations I've done to make room for the coronavirus-avoidance supplies my household has acquired since March, now I gotta stockpile iodine pills, too?

It's the coverage of his book like he was a lone hero fighting for America inside the corruption that is the White House. That annoys me in a way I cant quite describe.

I can see that. Or rather I could see that if it was a year ago. So much shit going on now, that doesn't make the cut.

Then why the fuck is it on my cursory news feed? Go straighten this out, Warren. I don't want to hear you complaining about my complaining. We're not a married couple dammit.

Yeah, this. He's a lying warmonger and should be publicly stoned, but because he's saying bad things about Trump, he's suddenly a Hero.
