ARE NRIS HYPOCRITE

Recommended Posts

We are all hypocrites at some level. My own cousins in the UK were brought up way more conservatively than I ever was and I grew up thinking they were having the time of their lives .

 

Things like economy and politics apart , it is very important to raise your children in the normative majority culture .

 

If you don't, there's a good chance that your kids will be screwed up forever.

Left and right is just western media discourse. 

 

Both BJP and Congress and every other party in India is socialist. 

 

Both the Dems and Republicans are about American exceptionalism. 

 

Most educated well-off NRIs support basic socialism and support national exceptionalism. Which is why most of them including myself supported Obama-era Democrats and BJP.

 

Now that the Dems have gone further towards wokeness (it is not going further left, it is just embracing DEI/"progressives"), they have started losing NRI support. We support equal opportunity, not equal outcome which is what basic socialism provides. 

 

This is not complicated despite media trying to paint parties as good (left) or bad (right).

Is DJT fringe or mainstream?

 

https://www.cnbc.com/2024/03/26/trump-selling-60-god-bless-the-usa-bibles-with-lee-greenwood.html

Quote

Donald Trump on Tuesday started promoting a line of pricey Bibles in partnership with country music star Lee Greenwood, whose song “God Bless the U.S.A.” is omnipresent at the former president’s political rallies.

 

“All Americans need a Bible in their home, and I have many,” Trump said in a video on Truth Social announcing the business deal.

 

“It’s my favorite book. It’s a lot of people’s favorite book,” he said.

“Religion and Christianity are the biggest things missing from this country, and I truly believe that we need to bring them back,” he added. “It’s one of the biggest problems we have. That’s why our country’s going haywire — we’ve lost religion in our country.”

The ubiquitous Christian holy text is the world’s bestselling book, and churches are often more than happy to hand them out for free. The Bible is also free to read on a wide range of websites and apps, not to mention hotel rooms and other places.

The “God Bless the U.S.A. Bible” costs $59.99, not including shipping and other fees.

For that money, buyers get a range of extra features not typically included in run-of-the-mill Bibles.

 

The Trump-Greenwood Bible, a King James translation, includes a copy of a “handwritten chorus” to the eponymous Greenwood hit, according to the website.

How is that different from Modi inaugurating Ram Mandir? Is Modi fringe or mainstream?

I don't know how good a comparison that is, but it is beside the point I was trying to make (and didn't do it well), which is:

 

Many feel that the evangelical wing is at the fringes of the GOP. But DJT's direct Bible-selling antics and the insinuation that being a believer is being a patriot are all warning signs that it is not the case. It should give pause to non-Christians who feel that a DJT presidency might benefit them.

 

Secondly, it is amusing to see him tout the Bible as his favorite book. I doubt if he got past the prelude. He is as Christian as I am Sachin Tendulkar.

very different. Modi isnt hawking something for personal profit like Trump is. 

 

I meant the underlying PR work is the same. Modi is convincing with conviction and sincerity, DJT is laughable

LOL. I hope you understand the definition of Beta male ya putz.

 

Go work for a boss in India and tell me what beta male behavior is. In my early days in India when I worked in my first job, the boss was such a A-hole that he made fully pregnant women stand and talk to him in his room to show his superiority for hours.

 

Or the fact that the same boss would yell at your face when even the slightest mistake was made and made everything about firing you.

 

This never happens in the west. Look at how Byjus was treating their sales teams. That's beta male behavior.

 

I have many issues with Muloghonto and Coffee_rules but I admire their fight to voice their opinions freely and openly without fear.

 

It's people like you who work pathetic jobs for pathetic pay in India - jealous of others success overseas calling them beta males when it was you who chickened out and sat back home instead of at least exploring other opportunities where your skills are respected and you get paid fairly to your value.

Never make fun of people who choose to keep their talent at home. The key to India's rise, as we are seeing with Chinese students returning back to China more than staying in the west, is to retain its talent. 

Your issues with me and coffee is that we call you out on your BS propaganda and your inability to back up anything you say with facts or run wild nonsense theories that flies in the face of facts.

Lol you are a weirdo who will never actually do what you talk in forums.

 

I am sure you are the type who talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk.

 

Since you have so much love and admiration for Adani, why not go work for his company for 10 years as a patriotic gesture considering you want people to go back.

 

And then after 10 years, work there until retirement even if you don't get paid as much or have to work longer hours.

 

After all you are such a patriot, such a sacrifice is fair play.

 

You will never do that but talk about all kinds of nonsense like a perfect BOT.

The only bot here is you, talking nonsense all the time. I have cited facts in the other thread. Not everyone is a gutless mercenary like you.

The way he mocks India and Indians, I have doubts if he is actually BlueBlood or GreenBlood, He has only problems for India and sees no solutions rooting for its downfalll.
