I always remember the line from a movie: “We deal in deception here… not self-deception”. This is the problem that inflicts the Congress party. What ordinary people like us kept pointing out was blacked out by Rahul Gandhi’s sycophants and a servantile MSM. There were quite a few online news sites that served frequent reminders that RG is a disaster. The Congress didn’t listen. They thought the slaves in the MSM could put a lipstick on everything he does and says and make him look like the next PM or the challenger to Narendra Modi. Even the hashtag #Pappu didn’t tell them anything. They thought it was a plant by APCO. Now there’s no escape. Regardless of how the Congis may try to wash it in public they likely know internally that it’s the end of the road for RG. They say never write off a politician but I doubt RG was ever a politician. He was just comic theatre. This time I don’t really have to talk about all his silly utterances and moronic statements. We will just go through Rahul Baba’s picture book. Let’s start with this little montage:
There, you see! He’s everything India ever wanted; from a Kannada King to the sports-shoe wearing labourer. However, his sycophants in the party and the MSM doormats started the game in 2009. The Congress returned to power and won 22 seats in UP. So the morons at CNN-IBN concluded this was the miracle that the Pope wanted to see. So they not only fooled RG but also fooled themselves. They awarded him a silly IOTY award and they went gaga over how he had energised the party and blah blah. Fact remains, some states just vote differently in local and LS elections. Doesn’t matter! Here’s the Numero Uno political analysis Rajdeep Sardesai & Co. who sucked up:
In just over 2 years in 2012 the doormats at CNN-IBN realised how “revived” the Congress was in UP, with the party winning around 38 seats in an Assembly of 400+ seats. The Oohs and Aahs kept coming when it was pretty evident to even illiterate folks. But hey, our MSM is very intelligent and mostly “foreign” educated. Aren’t they? The great “evoluter” of RG, Barkha Dutt even became a Congress panellist and spokie: “NDTV:Evolving the Gandhi”. Did she learn anything? I guess not. She trumpeted “Obama moment” after RG was “crowned” VP in January 2013. What difference that title really makes to the party or RG is a mystery to me because a “Gandhi” is automatically King or Queen of Congress by birth. Anyway, here’s Barkha for the record:
After his speech at the Congress meeting on January 20, 2013 two sycophants, ManiS Aiyar and Jairam Ramesh, hailed it as the “Obama moment”. Oops! The only ones to hail RG as the Obama of India were NDTV and the MSM mafia. “Power is Poison” he quoted his mom and they went gaga again. That’s the poison the Congress accuses others of lusting for while they remain desperate to hold on to it. In the NDTV show Digvijaya Singh mentioned how RG reminded him RG (RajivG). Oh well, RG reminded P. Chidambaram of RG sometime back too. Somehow, the people can’t see what they see. No? Well, these guys are seasoned hands at sycophancy. But there’s the new Congress kid who parachuted straight from the UN into the party and he thought it was “inspirational and emotional”. Any idea who won the Best Sycophant award? Harsh truth is these guys just led RG up a garden path instead of telling him about his self-deception. Oh wait! It’s not just Shashi Tharoor, the cheer-girls of the Congress party in the media sort of agreed with him. Ooooohhhh!
Ace speech-detective Sagarika even discerned the speech had a Jairam hand in it. I wonder why the CBI or Supreme Court doesn’t hire her. After all she knows who didn’t kill Aarushi and can solve many legal cases on her own. I’m sorry if you people fall off your chair repeatedly in laughing hysterically. Then came another classic moment about that Ordinance that would have protected convicted politicians. RG went into arrogant theatre screaming “complete nonsense… should be torn and thrown away”. Here’s Shashi Tharoor again (he sort of knew what exactly RG would do):
You see, sucking up demands you do it even when you know things are terrible. It demands consistency. Tharoor wins again! RG’s action directly ridiculed the PM, his own ministers and colleagues but still the sycophants applauded. Media sycophants like Vinod Mehta and Kumar Ketkar applauded the silly act as “brave and courageous”. Rajdeep Sardesai wanted to call it like it is but then that would damage his reputation. So he smartly uses the words of Sanjay Baru, who appeared on his show, to send a secret message to the Congress. After all, Rajdeep is an award-winning Numero Uno political analyst. Around October 2013 the campaigns for the last round of elections in 5 states started. RG’s speeches got so silly that even the EconomicTimes couldn’t help compiling all of his repetitive crap. Those were mostly like sweet nothings that lovers whisper to each other. A compilation of his utterances by ET was turned into this on Twitter:
Hartosh Singh Bal was rumoured to be sacked from Open Magazine for writing an article very critical of RG. One can’t be sure it was that one single article since the same article had equal criticism of Modi. So Bal finds his way into the pages of Firstpost and here’s a quick glance at the conclusion:
After the recent campaign and the exit polls that were aired on December 4, quite a few people have suddenly grown grey hair and a fair bit of wisdom and new insight. “Political dud” says Hartosh Bal. Such words should have been heard 3 years ago and maybe RG and Congress would have the chance to alter the course of their behaviour and campaign. After the exit polls, a desperate Telegraph makes a desperate appeal to the Congress:
The Telegraph guys are really desperate. I should know. After all I wrote a 10-part series on "Desperate Measures". They want to save the nation and who do they want? Digvijaya? Because he is a family loyalist? Has experience as CM? Well alright, so far these same jokers said Narendra Modi is a “regional leader” since he was just a CM (never mind his experience of 3 terms). And then AK Anthony? He is honest? Okay, even MMS started out an honest PM, didn’t he? What these media morons don’t realise is that it doesn’t matter who the Congress PM is. The real PM remains a Gandhi. So how does it matter whether it is Diggy, Anthony or Kamaal R Khan? Nothing matters!
The Congress and the media mafia refused to see Narendra Modi as a serious contender all along and hurled abuses at him. They even tried to glorify LK Advani and hoped he would be the BJP’s PM candidate. Didn’t happen, boss! The other problem is it’s not just that people aren’t turning up at RG’s rallies anymore; they are actually turning and walking away the moment he starts to speak. At the HT Summit on December 6 the PM finally acknowledged that Modi was being taken seriously as a challenge but there was something sinister in what he said that most people missed and even HT deliberately edited out. Here’s the relevant part of the HT report on what the PM said to a question by a member from the audience:
MMS says “As an organised political party, we cannot underestimate the power of opposition to unsettle the ship”. Is that what the PM actually said or did HT remove a most critical part at the end of that statement? Let’s hear what the PM actually said: (This is an audio recording from a CNN-IBN report at 6.30 pm on December 6 – Audio 34 seconds):
If you noticed carefully, HT put lipstick on the pig in quoting the statement of MMS. It stopped at “unsettle the ship” whereas what MMS did say was “unsettle the ship of the STATE”. What MMS is implying is that the Opposition is so anti-national that they will upset the ship of the state which only his corrupt Congress can save. So there’s no lesson learned and this is the guy who is supposed to be honest even as he holds the Opposition in utter contempt. I for one definitely believe that quite a few anti-nationals are those supporting the ruling coalition. Some were tagged #65Traitors for a reason on social media.
Like Manmohan Singh the Congress has not proved to be a good learner. They haven’t learned despite an over-abundance of evidence that Rahul Gandhi is a Dud. The media has been generously putting lipstick on all of the silly utterances and grand statements of RG. The year started with a grand coronation of Rahul Gandhi but by December it does look like it’s the EOR (End of the road) for him as the Congress’s chief campaigner. A final pic that I’ve used before would be a good way to end with a message to MSM to learn honesty.
