Mass murders in HistoryOne Mr Devu Chodanka is trying to escape from the clutches of Goa Police for posting ‘holocaust’ comment in FB. He allegedly posted, if Modi comes to power, there would be systematic elimination of minorities. This police action is based on the ignoble Section 66A of IT Act, brainchild of sycophantic Congress luminaries, created to protect their overlords from a possible exposure to truth. Such Control on thought seem a blue blooded Fascist act, that originated from Congress and had the support of the Left liberals who called it "reasonable restrictions" a moving goal post that suits their ideology.
Then there are many academicians imbibed with western inculcated values, who feel somewhat cheated because though they are well equipped with the liberal anti-Fascist, anti-Nazi vocabulary, there is hardly any opportunity available to them in India to put their skills to use. In these days of dearth of Fascist leaders, these intellectuals invent one in right wing politicians, just as their western Liberal leaders do. Here lies the irony. With no Right wing mass murderer like Hitler on the Right wing, what do they do? They commit verbicide, change the meaning of words to suit their political ideology. This post is about that perversion of meaning.
In Indian politics, there are two types of political ideologies that compete for mandate to rule; both are left leaning ideologies. The only difference being the degree of leaning. We have on the left extreme, the ideologically orthodox, bloody Naxals and the towards the right extreme of the left ideologies, we have BJP. Every time I hear people describing BJP as ‘right of center’ party, I try not to bust my innards laughing. How else do you call a party that comes to power by their subsidy programs that do not stir a man to go out to work? The BJP programs that make direct payment to the weak and needy will put socialist ruled states to shame, the essential difference being, BJP has successfully improved the quality of delivery by reducing waste and corruption. That could possibly be a critical reason why BJP Governments are being re-elected.
BJP follows such policies so as not to be relegated to irrelevance in Indian political scenario where votes have always been shared between left, pampering and appeasing parties, who present various Marxian hued ideals as political objectives; that easily appeal to the voters and also make the politician’s job less risky. While I agree that BJP is not center to right party, I also concede that, it is where BJP wants to be and to be there, it has to start where it has started. Modi has shown a center to right dream to the public and their resounding reply has been in the affirmative. Thus BJP has created a chance to be the first right of center party in India, but are not there yet. And Modi’s personalized leadership also paves way for BJP to break from the socialist mould.
Then there are those leaders from various other political parties, all of their calling card describing them as socialists, though of varying color, yet finally sharing a common DNA strand with Karl Marx, who truly believe that their duty to their cause is not complete without a mandatory comparison of Modi/ RSS/BJP with Hitler/Fascists/Nazis with predictable periodicity. Congress, SP, JDU, RJD, CPI-M, CPI, CPI-ML, CPI-M&L, CPI-M~L, what the heck, all the collection of bastardized revisionist Marxists, all of them stand for ‘social justice’, ‘Secularism’, equality and other democratic principles that were exemplified during Stalinist Russia. I am just trying to help you visualize the team. On the one hand, we have Socialists of all hues and on the other BJP, which again appears like another socialist party.
So we have the teams well defined. In this division, those in the Left accuse the Right, whether it is the Liberals of the US or Left & Liberals of India, of being Fascists and Nazis. While the American Left paints all the rest as ‘racists’ and shame them out of debate, Indian Left and liberals use “communal” and add-on accusations like Fascists and Hitler for good measure. Is Marxism, mother of Socialism, contrastingly different from Fascism and Nazism and did Right politics spring forth from the Fascist and Nazi wellspring?
Nazi stands for ‘National Socialism’, mind you, not ‘National Capitalism’, socialism as in Lenin’s idea. While the world was boiling with the socialistic heating started by Soviet, its appeal being the international collaboration of Labor, there was no respectable opposition from Capitalism.
While the Russian brand of socialism was attempting to forge an alliance at International level, Hitler, steeped in his hatred for Jews attempted to forge at Socialism at national level, further distilled through the racial classification. But they all were socialists. Sibling rivalry for the same piece of heirloom between Nazis and Communists does not make the two unrelated by blood.
The socialists argue that since Hitler started arresting Socialists and Communists, he was not a socialist. However, Hitler and Socialists were fighting for the same constituency, workers Union, and Hitler upped the ante with a strong Nationalistic fervor which won him the mandate. The workers chose a national variety of Socialism over International one. The Socialists of Germany recognized it by their slogan, ‘First Brown, then Red”, indicating that the Nazis, when they evolve will turn Socialists.
However, after knowing the outcome of history, the logic Socialists employ is “Capitalists are anti-Socialists. Hitler was anti-Socialist. Hence Hitler was Capitalist (right wing) and on this fallacy the world is being fed incessantly the Left propaganda that Hitler was a Capitalist right winger.
Hitler lent evil aspects to his version of Socialism by adding racial hatred, anti-Semitism and genocidal hunger by projecting Jews as personified enemy. Hitler held Jews to be the reason for the misfortunes of Germans and in that aspect also, his views were similar to Marx, who was a Jew hating Jew.
Let us also see who else eliminated a section of their own country men by demonizing them.
During the Red Terror of Lenin’s time, tens of thousands (Cossacks) perished and Lenin was a Socialist.
It wasStalin who killed around few Millions, also Socialist. Not Capitalist right winger. Of course, it was mere statistics to him, in a de-personified assessment of political cleansing.
Mao, another Socialist leader knocked off another 3~4 million and topped it with the massacres of people of Tibet.
Khmer Rouge, another Communist from Cambodia killed about 2 million out of a total population of 7 million
Further, those rogues like Che Guera, who famously said “if in doubt, kill him” is made to be a revolutionary. This is the kind of intellectual laziness that pervades Left ideology as with religious Supremacism, that peace is achievable after dissenting voices are eliminated.
It is also to be noted that Monarch Fidel Castro, who anointed his brother as leader of Cuba, who has not let a whiff of democracy enter Cuba, is still the adored Communist socialist revolutionary to the Left. And all these Left organizations do not fail to carry a ‘democratic’ tag to their name, in their Sorelian spirit of lying through their teeth.
Other Socialist led killings have taken place in Vietnam, Romania, North Korea, Hungary all have had their share of killing those who held another view or accused of. Socialists are ones who glorify killing humans, justify it as legitimate political activity. Can one forget the twist the Marxist gave to the slaughter, rape and forced conversion of tens of thousands of Hindus in Kerala as one of revolution? It is the same DNA strand that is shared by Hitler and any self-respecting Socialist, to demonize section of humans as enemies and justify killing in cold blood.
While Rwandan genocide was horrific, overseen by inept UN which could have avoided the death toll of this magnitude, the world also witnessed, though mutely, another genocidal horror at Darfur, with over 400000 dead and about 3 million displaced. It had nothing to do with Capitalism but with the regressive tribal/ racial feud, the latter had additionally religious Supremacy. One can stretch that tribal feud itself is the foul smell of Capitalism as Left would do but for that you will have to water-board truth, which the Left is capable of doing as a matter of course.
Iraq war with casualty of about 200000 dead, perpetrated by religious Right wing Bush, hogged the limelight while the millions in Darfur died, sometimes at the rate of 10000 per month. Darfur was a Muslims killing Muslims variety of genocide which had all classical Nazi elements. Yet, the attention it drew was insignificant in comparison to the Iraq war, because the Left liberals do not consider it of good propaganda value and it does not fit in their overall ‘socialist story’ and let it be.
In the last 8 to 9 decades the mass killing of people was carried out almost exclusively by Left ideology or by religious Supremacists. But these are the two groups who ceaselessly allege right wing of pogrom and genocide.
In this light, the current roll call of the Left and liberal leadership and Muslim voices alleging RSS and BJP to be the next Nazi party and Hitler is just continuation of their old trick.
If any political ideology has dehumanized one’s own people, made enemies of a section of one’s own countrymen, intellectualized the spin into political hate with nice sounding words, such ideology has always come from the Left constituency. As a concerted diversionary tactic (to borrow another word from Marxian Lexicon) they point their fingers at political right as culprits while turning blind to the millions and millions scorched by the Marxian, Left ideologies all over the world.
We in India need not be perturbed if the Left liberals keep up their fear mongering that Modi will be the next Hitler. It is those Left who uphold an ideology as final truth who will resort to violence and never a Hindu for whom the truth is ever changing. Fundamentally, Hindus have been non-violent as a result of their philosophy (not because of cowardice) and are truly secular due to the concept of ‘Vasudeva Kudumbakam’ ingrained in Hindu psyche. When the Godless Left and Supremacist religionists accuse Modi, it always pays to pause and reflect on the objectives of these groups, i.e., domination of the world with their violent ideology. Let us ever remind ourselves who the real left overs of Hitler are. It is always the side Left takes.
