why the communists in kerala support pinarayi vijayan, the accused in the big lavalin scam
feb 3rd, 2009
why, because they want to also enjoy the fruits of large-scale corruption.
quote from the article below:
[ze comrades] want everyone to have the right to travel in executive class in the best airlines, to be able to send their children to the best universities in the world and to build houses that looked like palaces, like the one Pinarayi built in his village Pinarayi in Kannur district.
and how will they do that except through squeezing ye olde capitalists?
the comrades are very good at hypocrisy. i had a classmate at IIT Madras who was the son of some big-time communist fellow from kerala. he used to rant and rave against the yanks, in fact continuously and annoyingly so. but guess where he went to do his master's degree? drum roll... yes, america. guess where he has been living for decades? yes, america.
why didn't he go to the soviet union or china? well, that's for the common people, the plebeians. PLUs (people-like-us) don't do that. just like i am sure all burqa dutt is not sending her own kids to madrassas.
