(This is a MaxiPost and the final part in the Dangerous Deceptions series – Part-1: The book of love. Part-2: Password: Anti-Hindu. Part-3 Multiplicity.)
If you open the Google homepage for a search there are two buttons below the block for the search text. One is “Search” and the one next to it says “I’m feeling lucky”. The “feeling lucky” comes from an iconic movie of a maverick cop who liked to dispense instant justice and he hated all criminals equally and couldn’t be bothered with courts and trials. Let’s watch the video (3.00 mins)
That punk was lucky there was no bullet left. Harry Callahan aka “Dirty Harry” has been copied, imitated and remade hundreds of times in Hollywood, Bollywood, Tollywood, Kollywood and every place on earth that has woods. Lately we also have politicians who want to deliver instant justice; just like Dirty Harry.
True story: There was a man in a school teaching English and other subjects. He was a million miles from his home-state, a genuinely nice guy and also brave. He once fought thugs, who attacked girls on a school-trip on a train, almost single-handedly. It was hard to believe the guy could also suddenly handle so much violence. One fine day he appeared in starched white Dhoti and Kurta which was shockingly different from the ordinary pants-shirts he wore for about 3 years. When asked about the sudden change in appearance he said he had now become an MLA. Huh? Imagine the shock on everyone’s face. Where? In Bengal! The CPM came to power in 1977 after the Emergency. Turns out this nice gentleman was a naxal on the run and contested elections in absentia and won. I wonder if an underground naxal parading as a school teacher can be called “deception”. His public bio won’t tell you this story. His name is…. Oh wait! On second thoughts maybe I should leave it to you to guess.
The good thing about that Commie is that he didn’t fool or cheat anyone while he was a teacher. Some people not only fool others, they do so while claiming to be public intellectuals and thinking for the best of society. Here’s a gallery of Fiberals with something common among them:
Yeah, you guessed right! These are “Fai Fighters”; the Pak-loving, Free-Kashmir, assorted fake peaceniks and “Useful idiots” of Ghulam Nabi Fai who was arrested by the US Govt for being an ISI stooge. When Fai was arrested these idiots claimed ‘oh we didn’t know; had we known we wouldn’t have attended his anti-India conferences’. What they don’t know and won’t tell you is that Fai had picked these “useful idiots” precisely for their known positions on Kashmir which aren’t friendly for India. Fai had picked them because they had proved themselves to be “idiots” in their own country. They loved the foreign junkets and luxuries as guests of ISI. There’s another motley crew, another bunch of “useful idiots” now roaming the streets of Delhi. Here’s the gallery:
Some of the above are AAP Party founders, some are “I-want-what-you-have” wagon hitchers like Gopinath and Ashutosh; some are professional agitators like Mallika, Medha. And some are Fai-fighters like Chenoy and Bhushan. All of them are “useful idiots” for someone; some of them know it, some don’t. We can only make a fair estimate who their Master is. So I estimate one day, like those Fai idiots, some of these people will say “Oh I didn’t know AAP would turn out like this. I thought they would take us to the Promised Land”. That’s how idiots usually start out to fool others but more importantly, they fool themselves. Events of the past few weeks reminded me what I tweeted on December 12 about dogs chasing cars. The AAP guys simply don’t know what to do now and have turned Delhi into a daily street battle with vigilantes raiding schools and hospitals and ministers raiding imaginary prostitutes.
In the previous part I asked how in the world Commies can even talk about democracy. They are mostly street thugs or good at agitations and when in power they’re bad dictators. Somnath Bharti proved it by chasing some Nigerian women calling them prostitutes and threatening the police to carry out raids without any warrants. The Nigerian women were harassed, their private parts searched and were even racially abused. This is typical Commie-Goonda behaviour. They have now become the same “goondas” that they accused politics was infested with. Somnath is the same guy indicted by a Delhi court for tampering with evidence and he’s the Law Minister. The best part about this crook is he took the media along to his midnight express. The TV scenes of Bharti could have well been from a movie like ‘Gangajal’ with the goonda threatening the police. Punch Drunk!
On the issue of rapes there was a lot more clarity from Arvind Kejriwal. The man campaigned calling Sheila Dikshit “Beimaan” (Dishonest) and even put up posters on Auto rickshaws. But this is what it looks like now:
If it was just political gimmickry that forced AK to make those statements pre-elections that is understandable. Politicians make grand claims for votes. But there is something even more dangerous that AK does that is similar to Bharti’s act. He wants the police to avoid penalising Autos that break rules. He wants Autos to refuse passengers. AK is neither interested in law nor is he interested in protecting women or any citizen. He simply doesn’t know what to do. He forgot that he gladly enjoyed agitating during the Nirbhaya rape incident and mouthing filth against the police, the transport system, the CM and the govt. In my post ‘Broken Windows’ I had tried to explain that bigger crimes start with ignoring small crimes. AK forgets that Nirbhaya happened because an Auto refused to carry her and her friend and they had to walk a bit and finally board that monster bus which was not certified road-worthy. “I am the Lord and my WILL be done”. That’s how AK and his Law Minister are behaving and fool people by repeatedly telling them “we are Aam Aadmi, we live an Aam life” and such bogus crap. AK is the guy who said “Ruling Delhi is not rocket science”. Self-deception!
By now most of their hypocrisies, U-turns and deceptions from the past and the present have become a daily routine. A reader, Sanku Das, points out the shocking amounts due from many AAP members to utility boards and departments. Shazia Ilmi has assets worth 17.45 crores. Look up on other members when you have the time. How AAM are these people? Let’s catch up with some more punch drunk idiots:
There’s the anti-national Kamal Chenoy who wants Hurriyat and others to unite against India. Prashant Bhushan wants the same with a plebiscite and referendum in Kashmir and prefers Kashmir separate from India. He echoes Arundhati Roy. Bhushan also prefers Rahul Gandhi as PM and that’s just a hint. There’s Medha Patkar who has been a nuisance to people and to the law. Apart from that there are issues concerning her funding which is also in the public domain. Almost every prominent person joining AAP seems to have some funding-related bad history. Capt. Gopinath is reported to have defaulted on 500Crs worth of loans and there are reports he still hasn’t paid dues of some former Air Deccan employees. I call him Capt. Topinath. Meera Sanyal told CNN-IBN on January 14 she is in favour of BJP’s economic policies but is against Hindutva so her choice is AAP. That is one small secret that unites all these “useful idiots”. It is important to unite against the “evil” of Hindutva. What is surprising about that, eh? Shekhar Gupta & Co. hounded Kiran Bedi for her petty travel bills but he never thought it fit to look into the funding of AK & others and their NGOs when the Fords, AID, ASHAs etc. were all in the public domain. That too is a hint.
While in IBN7 Ashutosh said those objecting to Retail FDI are “illiterate” (Imagine this guy calling anyone illiterate; laughable!). He now agrees to AAP’s anti-FDI policy. If, like Ashutosh, other media celebs like Rajdeep, Sagarika, Barkha, Arnab were to join politics just imagine how many flip-flops you would see. Maybe, they’d tell you that was a “journalistic opinion” and this is a “political stand”. That’s why there’s no incentive to trust any word these people say unless it’s just raw news. You know, those “illiterate” leaders that Ashutosh refers to in his tweet are those of the BJP who opposed it. But if it’s because he’s in AAP now or not, Ashutosh has never shown any signs of being literate. Worse, never shown any signs of sound thinking or honest reporting. The AAP deceptions are so many that it will take a whole book to write about each. Here’s another give-away from Manish Sisodia:
Indian Express later withdrew their tweet claiming it was a typo. I don’t accept their nonsense. Someone pointed out that typing “teh” instead of “the” can be a typo. I’d say “Tamish” instead of “Manish” can also be accepted as a typo but surely, even a Sagarika wouldn’t type “anti-BJP” instead of “anti-corruption” as IE claimed. There is another tweet from an AAP member in 2012 which confirms that AAP is anti-BJP although he mentions IAC at that time. By August 2012 IAC was over and done with and AK & Co. were headed for politics. That’s where the kingpin Yogendra Yadav comes in. From the day I saw Yadav on TV (much before AAP or IAC) and heard him talk he has reminded me of Michael Jackson’s ‘Smooth Criminal’. Of course, I must add that his political colleagues and TV friends vouch for him as an honest and genuinely nice guy. But honesty and politics rarely go together.
The first time I saw YY’s involvement in the Lokpal agitation was when he called for AK to end his hunger strike (he probably also ran a signature campaign for ending the fast) in March 2012. A few months later AAP was formed and I learned YY had become a member. I believe YY was perhaps instrumental in this decision. I also believe YY was deputed by the Congress for the AAP formation. After all, YY has long been a Congress sympathiser and also one of those who were “evolving” Rahul Gandhi (read this DNA report). Look closely and you will find the manifesto, political philosophy and “dole culture” of AAP is entirely an YY enterprise. So on January 16 when Vinod Binny made some serious allegations against AK & Co. YY was quick to state it was all a BJP conspiracy. However, Vinod Binny’s allegations were backed by another member, Surinder Singh. So, any criticism by its own members is now a BJP conspiracy for YY. Pretty neat and quite predictable, isn’t it? YY conveniently ignores the fact that Binny was formerly a Congress member.
That brings us to AK, the front-desk, factory and top-management of AAP, all rolled into one. And he has two side-kicks, Manish Sisodia and Yogendra Yadav. I am not sure AK really wanted to be CM. I’m not sure AK even wants to be PM as YY so fondly dreams. The media too has decided AK, with about 21 days experience of CMship and about 10 years of street-agitations, is now a PM candidate to challenge Modi. Oh, they don’t trust that forever-bride Rahul Gandhi anymore. But if you really want to know if a candidate is fit for anything it’s not who he is or what he is that one should look into. What matters is: What’s your story? Anyone who cares knows Narendra Modi’s story but most people haven’t looked deep into AK’s story. Let’s do that now and below is a summary extracted from a history of Arvind Kejriwal. This is his story and I recommend you read the whole long dossier to understand the person and not the position (Emphasis and comments in brackets are mine):
So there you are; a long history of AK’s flip-flops, manipulations, poor accountability for funds in his own NGOs, using and dumping people, changing ideology when convenient and leaving every campaign unfinished. He and AAP have no policies and no vision. They just want to be Dirty Harry dispensing instant justice. Harry still had someone to answer to and had to face bullets. These guys just keep getting more and more brazen in their street justice every day. AAP’s thrill was to announce massive freebies and doles which were not even properly thought through.
The current propeller of AK’s soap opera is none other than Yogendra Yadav who is like being on Congress deputation to AAP. My favourite line for deceivers has been “the mask and make-up of Chachi 420 wasn’t meant to last forever”. This mask and make-up is now peeling away faster than expected. I doubt AK ever wanted to be a CM. He probably wanted to create a revolution and be a high authority like a Lokpal or a CJI (He can’t be CJI though) or the CIC by which he could dispense instant justice, haul anyone before his court and sentence anyone without proper hearing. He wants to play Dirty Harry. The Congress calculations forced him to settle for something less like a CM position. He has used people as “tools” in his public life but for once he has become a tool himself for the Congress. I’m sure his mirror will tell him that. He could have been an honourable public figure doing great service. He chose the evil path and evil always gets defeated in the end.
Punch Drunk is the description of a person showing signs of brain damage and disorientation caused by repeated blows to the head. Punch Drunk is also a British drama model where audience members are free to roam the performance site, which can be as large as a five-story industrial warehouse. They can either follow the performers and themes or simply explore the world of the performance. I guess both definitions apply to AAP’s performance as a party and govt so far.
The guy in the true story is Nikhilanand Sar.
