did 'macaca' comment do in the republicans' senate hopes?

nov 12th 2006

this nytimes columnist sure thinks so. this week the nytimes select pages are free, btw.

i didnt know that allen was projected as a possible republican presidential candidate. so much for famous last words.

so the sidharth person is a devout hindu. good for him. nice irony in that too.

Hello Nizhal and all,

I want you to pay very close attention to the fact that my birthday was August 11th, the day of Mr. Allen's "Macaca" gaffe. His defeat, along with many of his ilk, was an apt belated birthday present for me. Check my photo in my Free Ebook... to appreciate the full scope of this blunder.

Now comes the truly important work of preventing the excesses of the last six years from ever happening again. As long as people cling to money, religion, and politics, these seemingly never-ending cycles of evil scoundrels, war, great struggles, and repeated injustices will never end.

These scoundrels need to be taught a lesson about truth and justice that all of humanity will take to heart, once and for all.

Did it ever dawn on you that money, religion, and politics are the prime sources of human struggle and continuing to beat a dead horse (or donkey, or elephant) will never solve our seemingly never-ending cycles of calamities? One good lesson to take from this election is that politics is a cycle that will always produce greedy scoundrels who must later be defeated or else. Why beat your heads against the same old wall when the door has been sighted and waiting for you to open your eyes and "see the light?" Truth, Wisdom, and Justice are non-political, non-religious, and non-monetary.

Rajeev,
As you know among the Hindus we have the concept of the "Shraapa" or accursing someone when penitence is not be had. Perhaps it is fair to say that Allen perished at the hands of the Shraapa uttered by us Hindus on his gaffe!!

Of course - CNN constantly laying up his idiocy helped. I have a feeling that Allen might come back though. For all the hoopla Virgina is still thick with the Confederate South types

I don't know that Sidartha was a devoted member of his faith, especially if he was working for US Democratic Party, which prizes its own race-baiting comments against Indian "job-stealers". I'm certainly not inclined to accept the NYT as a credible source for who is or is not Hindu. The fact that Allen spoke so sneeringly at Sidartha just shows how pathetically divided and bickering the infidel camp is. Meanwhile, the Islamists are sailing past all of us.

Both the Republicans and the Democrats can be racist; recall Hillary Clinton's derogatory remarks about Indian gas-station owners and her absurd joke about Gandhi. So its not all easy for us darker-skinned Hindus anywhere in the world. This is why how much ever 'Global' we think we are and however integrated we try to be in foreign lands, we are always considered the 'other'. And there can be no better reason than this for us Hindus to want our only true homeland, India, to be really strong militarily, economically and technologically. Kinda like Israel is to the Jews, wherever else the Jews may choose to reside in the world.

San, read my above link. Sidarth is a devout 20 year old Hindu, and his parents helped establish the Siva-Vishnu temple in Maryland, where Sidarth often does voluntary service.

san said...

Since more India-baiting comes from the US Democratic Party than from the Republicans these days, then I don't see why Sidartha the Hindu is supporting the Democrats. I guess faith is blind.

Being a devout Hindu apparently doesn't include being a smart Hindu.

Let's look at the latest on what Democrats are planning against the Indian "job-stealers":

Maybe Macaca-Sidartha can answer to his fellow Hindus in whose name he was fighting, on whether he shot his fellow Hindus in the foot.

san, neither the democrats nor the republicans are all that good for india. the democrats are really bad on trade, economics and non-proliferation. the republicans are really bad on racism and christist fundamentalism. talk of a choice between scylla and charybdis, or between the devil and the deep blue sea!

however, the GOP has actually been more *useful* to india in the sense of starting a new crusade and thus attracting the attention of mohammedans to themselves rather than to poor india.
