Ted Rall is a hardcore christist always lamenting the "decline" of christism in America. The "penniless wisecracking two bit preacher" Mike Huckabee is enjoying his 15 minutes of fame in the Republican primaries and is understandably evoking consternation among rational Americans due to his christist padre affiliations. There is admittedly a double standard in America, with dhimmi Yanks competing with their Indian counterparts of late in their genuflection to global Islam and rubbishing traditional conservative values. Rather than focusing on the double standards of the American liberals, this christist's poor attempt at satire ends up denigrating Hindus with all the usual idiotic stereotypes.
There is nothing humorous about it - it is denigration of Hindus, plain and simple. The ignorance and arrogance of this Yankee christist is astounding. And, as usual the Indian ELM idiots (see CNN-IBN article in the first link above) fail to comprehend Rall's convoluted logic. The fellow is lamenting what he perceives as "unfair" criticism of the two bit Baptist preacher, as opposed to the celebration of someone like, say Keith Ellison, the black Muslim congressman who recently took his oath of office swearing on The Book of the ROP. One can understand irritation with the latter case, but drawing cartoons of Mohammedans can result in consequences such as .....emasculation and more. So, what does the christist do? Of course, attack Hindus - a perpetual soft target for any ignorant fool to mock at.
Perfect trailer trash logic, wouldn't you say? Quite like the lynching of the poor Sikh chap in Arizona after 9/11 because he "looked Arab"..
