Why so Precious?

Fact – Lord of the Rings is awesome

Fact – Gollum/Smeagol is the greatest character in film history

Fact – Turkey or rather its President Mr. Erdogan is morbidly anti-Kurdish. The Kurdish are fighting ISIS/IS/Daesh. So, Mr. Erdogan has decided to side with ISIS/IS/Daesh.

Fact – Bilgin Çiftçi, a Turk, compared Erdoğan’s facial expressions to Gollum/Smeagol.

This has naturally aghasted (if William can make up words, I can verbify them) the western civilized world. The whole function of a politician in the western world is to wage wars, kiss ass of oil company owners and be the butt of all jokes.

The only reason the people tolerate politicians is because of their comedy value.

And they are trying to take away that basic right.

The whole world is now shaking its head and laughing at Mr. Erdogan.

 

This is not even a news in India though.

Our “secular” “tolerant” overlords like Neheru, Indira Gandhi, Jyoti Basu, Siddhartha Shankar Ray, Anil Biswas, Laloo, Didi, Behenji, The Bal, Amma, YSR, KCR, Krantikari MufflerMan (who btw just gave himself a 400% raise) have always ensured that we live in an utopia of tolerance, and nobody has ever been kicked out or fired or arrested or beaten up or murdered during any one of their reigns for daring to criticise them.

No siree, absolutely not.

They have always followed in the long and glorious tradition of tolerance as practiced by Timur Lang, Alauddin Khilji, Aurangzeb, Tipu Sultan, Joseph Stalin, Nikita Krushev, Ceausescu, Chairman Mao, Pol Pot, Che Guevera, Fidel Castro etc.

India was truly a heaven of tolerance for thousands of years where not a single death ever took place due to inter racial or inter religious or inter caste conflicts.

No siree, absolutely not.

It is only in the last one year, after India’s control was violently seized by ISIS – as claimed by Irfan Habib and Saikat Chakraborty – that we have all magically overnight become intolerant.

 

Hundreds of thousands of us are being butchered as we speak. Millions have been put in jail for daring to criticize our Prime Minister and his party members.

You will not be able to find a single criticism or joke about the ruling party.

No siree, not at all.

Its all so intolerant.
