Global Scholarly Community - Made in America 'Indian' Leftists and their comical ways

When you spit at the sun  you should not complain when what went up obeys the law of gravity and hits  your face on its return journey. As little known facts about Rohith Vemula and  the reasons which drove him to take his life appeared in the public domain, the  129 self-proclaimed “global scholarly community” (GSC) who wrote an open letter  to the Vice Chancellor, University of Hyderabad (UoH) in less than 48 hours  after Vemula committed suicide, probably kicked each other’s derriere for  getting it wrong on all counts; and for creating the situation where like the  emperor, they were seen to have no clothes.

Their collective spittle  instead of landing on the face of the country’s Prime Minister, Minister for  Human Resource Development and the Vice Chancellor of UoH as they had intended,  came flying down towards their faces under the weight of their scholarly  falsehoods. This article is law of gravity in action because Rohith Vemula’s  suicide and GSC’s foolish letter precipitated the imminent expose that India’s  institutions of higher education - IIT Madras, UoH, FTII, the largest and  foulest of them all, JNU and almost certainly other universities and colleges  have become the hunting ground for seditionists and secessionists, some abroad,  some here with the active and deliberate instigation and encouragement from  some members of the teaching faculty.

At the heart of the matter  was the fact that Rohith Vemula’s suicide was not a case of Dalit harassment by  his “political rivals”, meaning Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), as  deliberately misrepresented by the GSC but the culmination of a series of  events triggered by Vemula and his treasonous friends belonging to Ambedkar  Students Association (ASA) offering prayers inside the university campus for  terrorist Yakub Memon, the day after Memon was hanged to death. But for the  GSC, in the war against India, truth was an expendable commodity. While I think  the GSC letter is both brash and insolent, as a student of English I also find  the semantics of their self-anointment both comical and queer.

Going by the contents of  their letter which have been conclusively disproved and discredited, the letter  is hardly scholarly and this is not a “scholarly community” global or  otherwise. These are 129 college and university teaching staff, which like the  teaching faculty in the Humanities in IIT Madras and JNU, have very ordinary  minds filled with very ordinary ignorance driven by Hinduphobia - around fifty  each from the USA and UK besides eleven from Germany, four from Canada, two  from France and Norway and one each from Singapore, Netherlands, Italy, Qatar,  Karachi, Denmark and South Africa and one signatory who except for his name has  not specified what or from where.

While Global Scholarly  Community is not quite Order of the Garter, the appellation also suffers from  lexical and logical semantics, another sign of ordinariness. “Scholarly” bent  of mind we understand and “scholarly” lecture; but “scholarly community”? If  129 individuals in the world call themselves “global scholarly community”,  rules of lexical semantics say the rest of the global community is  un-scholarly. Or did they actually mean community of scholars as opposed to  community of imbeciles? Any which way “scholarly community” is a semantically  flawed construct while “global” is a logical semantic flaw. A hundred teachers  - fifty each from the UK and USA out of a total of 129 is hardly global and 129  individuals from among the total world population calling themselves “global”  is akin to a speck of dust grandly proclaiming itself to be the cosmos.

Why Indian Leftists are in  America and why America allows them to graze on capitalist pastures

First things first; having  chosen to leave India and live in another country of their choice, the Indian  origin GSC members (no matter which country’s citizenship they now have)  forfeited the right to demand anything from any Indian authority. Aliens may  call themselves anything - Global Scholarly Community, Alliance for Justice and  Accountability (AJA), human rights activists, USCIRF, or Busybodies Without  Borders - but Indian officials and Indians in public life including the Vice  Chancellor of UoH are accountable only to the Indian people, Indian government,  Indian parliament and Indian judiciary. Second, non-Indians in this list are  only “global” sewage inspectors with no locus standi in India. The  letter therefore and its contents do not merit any response.

This article is about the  cringing cowardice, total absence of intellectual integrity and fidelity to  truth of these bleeding-heart GSC who have not squeaked or whimpered, forget  writing letters to protest against racism in American universities and even  relentless persecution; but they did get together ‘”globally” to write to the  vice chancellor of a university in India because GSC is Left and Vemula’s  suicide was an excellent opportunity to beat up Prime Minister Narendra Modi  who, the rest of the world Right, Left and Centrist perceive to be the most  successful and powerful symbol of Hindu political assertion. In India, Hindu  nationalism is neither Right nor Left; it is Right, Left and Centre and all  spaces in between but that is a theme for another essay.

Emboldened by the fact that  neither the state governments of Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu or Karnataka nor the  central government had dealt appropriately with student hooligans in FTII, APSC  hooligans in IIT Madras, and ASA anti-nationals in UoH who offered prayers for  Yakub Memon, students of JNU and their communist faculty mentors decided to  prod the BJP worm again. They held a commemorative meeting on the third  death-by-hanging anniversary of another terrorist Afzal Guru, on February 9,  inside the JNU campus. S.A.R. Geelani, former lecturer in Delhi University and  Afzal Guru’s sidekick, was invited to JNU where not only was a film on the dead  terrorist scheduled to be shown but anti-India and pro-Afzal Guru slogans were  also raised.

Later on February 10,  S.A.R. Geelani gave an encore performance at the Press Club of India knowing  well that he will get his two minutes of notoriety on television channels. The  GSC spittle which went up after Rohith Vemula died, and was supposed to gather  momentum on February 9 in JNU, came flying down when Kanhaiya Kumar, President  of JNUSU was arrested for anti-national activities inside the university and  sent to police custody while S.A.R. Geelani has been charged with sedition and  several students have now been arrested/detained by the police.

Fishing in treasonous  waters, political leaders peddling different political ideologies united by  Hinduphobia and their fear of Narendra Modi and led from the front by Rahul  Gandhi, descended on JNU in support of students who made martyrs of Yakub Memon  and Afzal Guru. If Tamil Nadu’s Chief Minister can describe Tipu Sultan and  Hyder Ali as freedom fighters then the same twisted logic can describe Yakub  Memon and Afzal Guru as martyrs in the cause of the global caliphate. The  Islamic State has tasted blood and is certain to want more.

Congress, JDU, CPI, CPI (M)  and Trinamool Congress are now emerging as India’s domestic political front for  jihad against India and apologists for IS. And in a macabre replay of history,  just as Imperial London stood by and watched (and covertly supported) Muslim  jihad against the Hindus, America is watching from the sidelines as jihad  raises its head menacingly yet again. For America, like for Imperial London,  jihad against Hindus and India serves their geo-political objectives and so  long as their backyard is not threatened, they see no need to kill the monster.

If anything they are  breeding little monsters in their own backyards to be used in target countries;  and that is why Washington and London are baying for Julian Assange’s blood.  Assange exposed the Generic Church’s military-industrial complex (MIC) crafted  world order and the methods used to put that world order in place where 10  Downing Street and the White House are expected to play only supportive roles.  MIC is new for old Bretton Woods Bandits.

These Leftist South Asia  “experts and scholars” of the GSC kind are farm-bred creatures who have been  domesticated and trained by America for a purpose. These have been bred in  captivity by the American political establishment and therefore cannot act independently.  Hindu nationalists who accuse them of duplicity should know that America allows  Indian Leftists to graze on American university and other pastures only because  they produce anti-India, anti-Hindu manure to throw at India and India’s  Hindus. These “South Asia” creatures have been permanently genetically modified  so that there is an unbroken supply of anti-India quislings who are bred for  anti-India dung.

Ghadar produced PROXSA  which produced FOIL and FOSA which mated to produce Coalition against Genocide  which has now spawned GSC and AJA - these are fly-by-night entities and their  one-night stand issues begot Angana Chatterjee, Akhila Raman, Shashi Bulluswar,  Vijay Prashad, Meenakshi Ganguly and countless others. These Made-in-America  Indian Leftists and Anarchists who continue to manufacture anti-India dung for  the privilege of grazing in America’s capitalist pastures have been trained as  South Asia experts, entrepreneurs, and human rights defenders in American farms  and Noam Chomsky is the American farm manager.

It is Chomsky’s job  description to make sure that the dung produced as natural result of grazing on  American pastures is not used against America; as America’s official  professional dissenter, that is Chomsky’s sole prerogative. While Chomsky may  call America the most fundamentalist country in the world, that liberty may not  be taken by Indian American quislings; they may however sing hallelujahs to  Chomsky.

Other South Asia creatures  which America breeds in its geo-political factories include Pakistan’s ISI,  LTTE’s FETNA, Nepal’s anti-monarchy offspring of Marxist-Missionary  cohabitation, Khalistanis, Cubans and Iraqis of the Ahmed Chalabi kind.

It must mean something that  America refused to hand over Headley to India and even if Headley is singing  like a canary from American soil and it is a command performance,  notwithstanding Headley’s so-called damning indictment of Pakistan’s ISI in the  26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, Barack’s America has finalised the sale of eight  F16 fighter jets to Pakistan. But again as mentioned earlier, presidents and  prime ministers have little to do in geopolitical games except to support the  MIC as it re-arranges the world pecking order to its taste or maintain silence  when they disagree.

Or if you are India and  Barack is your friend you are allowed to squeak in protest, nothing more. It is  also the way of MIC world order that Modi’s NSA like P. Chidambaram may only  send proof dossiers to Pakistan demanding action against 26/11 terrorists but  may not send the army or elite commandos into Pakistan to extract and/or  exterminate Dawood, Hafeez, Masood and Lakhvi.

When victims push back—the  all-American persecution of Ward Churchill

“We of the global scholarly  community make an urgent appeal that justice be done in the most recent case of  caste discrimination in Indian higher education, that of the University of  Hyderabad’s prejudicial suspension of five young Dalit men pursuing PhDs. It  was ordered under political pressure, without even allowing the young men in  question to speak in their own defence. It directly contravened an earlier  decision made by the University administration itself, which had exonerated  them of any charges of wrongdoing – charges which had been trumped up by  political rivals opposed to the activism of these young men.”

The GSC letter on the face  of it was about Dalit persecution in India’s educational institutions to which  we gather they opened their eyes like Aamir Khan and his wife only after May  2015 when Narendra Modi became prime minister. They had hoped that their letter  which was generously laced with anti-Hindu political prejudice and  unsubstantiated innuendos would invite the negative attention of other  international predators who ignore overflowing sewage in their backyards but make  a living out of interfering in the internal affairs of other countries and who  GSC hoped would force Modi and his government on the defensive. This article is  about how the dung manufactured by Indian “South Asia” Leftists is  India-specific and will therefore take up racism in American universities and  the persecution of Ward Churchill as two of the best cases in point.

Ward Churchill is a Native  American author and political activist. He was Professor of Ethnic Studies at  the University of Colorado Boulder until 2007 when he was fired for “research  misconduct” which is polite for “we cannot admit publicly that Native Americans  and African Americans do not enjoy the same privileges and rights like white  Americans but you have to be punished and made an example of for your  anti-white American research and books and politically incorrect views on  9/11.”

Once in 1995 and then in  2000 I picked up several books authored by important Native American writers,  African American authors and thinkers, books about African American feminism  and eco-feminism. These were books that looked critically, even harshly at the  foundations of what is today United States of America - Slavery, Atlantic Slave  Trade and the genocide of Native Americans by European Christian hordes from  1492 when Columbus landed in North America until the present day; and because  these are written by the victims of white Christian colonialism, the narrative  is credible and legitimate.

The two most definitive and  scholarly books on the genocide of Native Americans have been authored by David  Stannard and Ward Churchill: The Conquest of the New World: American  Holocaust by David Stannard, Oxford University Press, 1992 and A Little  Matter of Genocide: Holocaust and Denial in the Americas, 1492 to the Present by Ward Churchill, City Lights Books, San Francisco, 1997.

“During the four centuries  spanning the time between 1492, when Christopher Columbus first set foot on the  “New World” of a Caribbean beach, and 1892, when the US Census Bureau concluded  that there were fewer than a quarter-million indigenous people surviving within  the country’s claimed boundaries, a hemispheric population estimated to have  been as great as 125 million was reduced by something over 90 percent. The  people had died in their millions of being hacked apart with axes and swords,  burned alive and trampled under horses, hunted as game and fed to dogs, shot,  beaten, stabbed, scalped for bounty, hanged on meat-hooks and thrown over the  sides of ships at sea, worked to death as slave labourers, intentionally  starved and frozen to death during a multitude of forced marches and  internments, and in an unknown number of instances, deliberately infected with  epidemic diseases.”

This is just the opening  paragraph in the first chapter of Ward Churchill’s gut-wrenching narrative of  the American holocaust. David Stannard, the author of the other brilliantly  researched book on the genocide, wrote what in my opinion was a farsighted  Preface to Churchill’s book.

“Ward Churchill is a man  looking for trouble. Of course, anyone familiar with his voluminous writings  during the past two decades – on subjects such as racism in American film and  literature, New Age spiritual hucksterism and counterfeit Indians, US government  death squads, the damage done to indigenous peoples by the forces of capitalism  and Marxism, and a great deal more – know that Churchill quite audaciously has  been courting (and finding) trouble for some time now. But with A Little  Matter of Genocide he is certain to bring on the enmity of an entirely new  and particularly vitriolic collection of critics. And this is a shame because  the sentiments of his new book are extraordinarily compassionate and  humanitarian, while its overall argument is eminently fair, deliberative, and  reasonable.”

Stannard concluders his  Preface thus:

“Like the unholy alliance  between Israel and Turkey, in the United States an equally unholy alliance  prevails. Here, the partners are the governmental and intellectual protectors  of the American image, and the home-grown purveyors of the idea that Jewish  suffering under Nazi rule was incomparable with that of any other people at any  other time or place. As with Israel and Turkey, it is a brutal alliance of  benefit to both parties.

“Only the victims of other  genocides suffer. Genocides long past – and officially denied – whose few  survivors huddle in poverty and broken health (far and away the worst poverty  and worst health of any group of people in the United States) on reservations  and in ghettos in the forgotten backwaters of American life. And genocides  ongoing - also officially denied - where American client states liquidate  inconvenient indigenous people with impunity, so long as such states remain  within the US protective orbit.

“So it is good thing that  Ward Churchill, with this book, A Little Matter of Genocide, has decided  once again to go looking for trouble. He will get plenty of it. But it only  because of trouble-makers like him, that the deadened conscience of this nation  might someday begin to stir. May his kind multiply.”

Ward Churchill, carrying  the burden of the history of his people in his soul and in his mind, has no  reason to look at the world and world events through the prism of white America  and is not obliged to put up politically correct polite appearances of  equality, fraternity and all that. He did not suffer from Uncle Tom syndrome  and therefore refused to toe the official American line on what to think and  how to speak about 9/11 and wrote a blistering essay Some People Push Back on September 12, 2001, the very next day after the terror attack. In the essay,  Churchill used the phrase “roosting chickens” and called the victims who died  in the twin towers of the World Trade Centre as “Little Eichmanns”. Churchill  developed the short essay into a book titled On the Justice of Roosting  Chickens: Reflections on the Consequences of US Imperial Arrogance and  Criminality published in 2003 by AK Press.

“Roosting chickens” is  reference to a speech by Malcolm X in 1963 after the assassination of John F  Kennedy where Malcolm X describes the killing as a case of “chickens coming  home to roost”. Adolf Eichmann was a dreaded Nazi SS lieutenant-colonel and one  of Hitler’s most ruthless organizers of the anti-Jewish Holocaust. According to  Wikipedia “Little Eichmanns” “is a phrase used to describe persons  participating in society whose actions, while on an individual scale may seem  relatively harmless even to themselves, taken collectively create destructive  and immoral systems in which they are actually complicit.” In other words,  quislings.

Ward Churchill’s vitriolic  reference to the victims of 9/11 as “Little Eichmanns” at the worst may be  termed insensitive and injudicious but in “the land of the free and the home of  the brave”, Ward Churchill must surely have the right to his views and the  right to freedom of speech and expression. But in white America, these freedoms  are neither universal nor absolute; Native American victims of genocide and  African American victims of slavery cannot use their right to freedom of speech  and expression to “push back” as we shall see. Let us for starters take the  phrase “the land of the brave and the home of the free”. It is a part of “The  Star-Spangled Banner”, the American national anthem, composed by Francis Scott  Key.

“He wrote those words in  1814 and, ever since 1931, they have been sung as the national anthem of the  United States. What is far less known are his views on race. In his career as  lawyer and public servant, Key spoke publicly of Africans in America as “a  distinct and inferior race of people, which all experience proves to be the  greatest evil that afflicts a community.” 

Notwithstanding the fact  that the song was authored by a man who was not only a slave owner but had  distinctly racist views on African Americans, a century after the song was  written, a bill was introduced in US Congress in 1930 to make “The  Star-Spangled Banner” the national anthem; a year later in 1931 President  Herbert Hoover signed the bill into a law. The third stanza of this obnoxious  song is a racist slur on African Americans whom Key describes as “foul” in an  insensitive reference to African Americans fleeing the war, failing to find  refuge and being killed. The American national anthem sings hallelujahs to  black blood washing clean American soil polluted by black footsteps!

Their blood has washed out  their foul footstep’s pollution
  No refuge could save the  hireling and the slave
  From the terror of flight  or the gloom of the grave
  And the star-spangled  banner in triumph doth wave
  O’er the land of the free  and the home of the brave

Because this article is  about the unmitigated insolence of Global Scholarly Community and Alliance for  Justice and Accountability arrogating to themselves the right to demand answers  from the Indian government, we must wonder if even one of these farm-raised  Indian Leftists in America who call themselves Indian Americans ever exercised  their academic freedom of thought and expression to write a critical piece  about America’s unapologetically racist national anthem whose original title  was “Defence of Fort M’Henry”.

It is perfectly  understandable why Ward Churchill views the American establishment in disdain;  the focus of all his writings has been about how the white Christian American  establishment has dealt with non-white Native American and African American  dissent and anti-establishment critics. There is startling similarity between  how the Generic Church dealt with Ward Churchill and Julian Assange. MIC, after  using sundry freedoms as weapons in war-by-other-means against every non-white,  non-Christian country of the globe could not very well admit that both  Churchill and Assange exercised their right to freedom of thought, expression  and speech to expose the MIC and the Generic Church for their inherently evil  political objectives.

So Assange had “rapist”  pinned on his lapel while Churchill was investigated for plagiarism and  research fraud and misconduct; the intention being throw mud by the tonne and  hope at least some of it will stick on Churchill and Assange for the rest of  their lives. Typical Abrahamic war strategy and war moves although America’s  farm-bred “Indian American” intellectuals are now genetically modified  rendering them incapable of even simple honesty and integrity, forget  intellectual and academic fidelity of purpose.

University of Colorado  began investigating Churchill for academic fraud in 2005, found him guilty in  2006 and fired him in 2007. From 2007 until 2013 Churchill fought in every  American court taking recourse to the hierarchy of appeals. In 2013, Churchill  lost the war to reclaim his honour when the last court of appeal the United  States Supreme Court refused even to take up his case for hearing. When victims  of the Generic Church push back, the Church makes an example of them. Like  David Stannard observed pungently in his Preface to Churchill’s book, “in the  United States an equally unholy alliance prevails. Here, the partners are the  governmental and intellectual protectors of the American image”; and America is  the most powerful component of the Generic Church.

It is even futile to ask if  GSC, AJA, or the father and mother of all Made-in-America Indian corona virus  Vijay Prashad and Angana Chatterji wrote a single letter or article in defence  of Ward Churchill’s right to academic freedom of thought and expression or if  they addressed themselves to University of Colorado, to senators and congress  men and women, to the American president in protest against the all-American  persecution of Ward Churchill. Did they write about the failure of the American  judicial system to deliver justice to Ward Churchill; the judicial system did  not even pretend to do justice.

The persecution of Ward  Churchill began around the same time that Indian Leftists in America were  throwing dung at Narendra Modi for the Gujarat riots and persuaded MIC to deny  Modi visa to visit the US, a visa which Modi never applied or asked for but  then peddling falsehoods is an essential part of Leftist activism; as is taking  credit for a non-starter. Alliance for Justice and Accountability, another  genetically modified (GM) Indian American farm-bred creature should first turn  its attention to America’s backyard and revisit Ward Churchill’s case before  throwing dung at India and India’s Hindus.

Racism in American  universities and Indian American silence

Let us now turn our  attention to racism in American universities and if GSC, AJA and other GM  creatures grazing on American pastures have used their dung in protest against  racism. If Ward Churchill’s persecution happened around the time Indian  American Left was gunning for Modi, then campus unrest in protest against  brazen racism in University of Missouri began in September 2015 and spread rapidly  across the U.S to other universities and became a massive student movement  against racism and the shameful racist history of some of America’s premier  universities which boast of Phi Beta Kappa chapters. Some of these universities  expanded and were funded from blood money through slave trading. To quote Craig  Steven Wilder, historian at MIT: “Institutions are a product of their  histories, like Georgetown has experienced. We have campuses that are filled  with buildings named after founders and early participants in the founding and  establishment of universities who both owned and traded human beings. It’s  difficult and awkward to celebrate diversity while standing in front of  buildings that are named after slave traders.”

The shameful history of  slave-owning and slave-trading by American universities can be seen here:  “Uncovering the Painful Truth About Racism on Campus“. The articles about  racism in American universities from Mother Jones has reproduced paper  clippings of slave trading by these universities.

If the persecution of Ward  Churchill began around the same time that Indian Leftists in America were  targeting Modi, then the campus unrest which engulfed American universities  across that country began in September around the same time that student  hooligans emboldened by the same Indian Leftist mob in America were testing the  waters in FTII, IIT Madras and UoH. But as with Ward Churchill, the  made-in-America Indian Leftists chose not to respond to racism related unrest  in America but instead turned to India and Indian universities; we should not  bemoan their duplicity because they have been genetically modified to become  only anti-India farm creatures.

It all began on September  12, 2015 when Peyton Head, President of Missouri Students Association posted on  his Facebook page that a group of persons repeatedly screamed “nigger” at him  when he was walking in the campus. When no action against the racist offenders  was forthcoming, the protest movement gathered momentum within the university  and soon spread to other universities too. The protests ended only when Tim  Wolfe, President of the University of Missouri System resigned on the first  week of November after Jonathan Butler, graduate student in the university went  on a hunger fast demanding Wolfe’s resignation. Soon after Wolfe’s resignation,  Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin of the University of Missouri, Columbia also  announced his resignation by the end of the year. India would love to know if  in the two months between September and November 2015, PROXSA, FOIL, FOSA,  Coalition against Genocide, GSC or AJA came out openly against racism in  American university with the same precision with which they are throwing dung  on India’s face for what they call “anti-Dalit” prejudices in Indian  universities. But we know the answer to that one too.

As if to prove Ward  Churchill’s book about racist prejudice in American films and literature right,  racist bias which colours Oscar nominations and awards has manifested in BAFTA  nominations and awards too. This year’s BAFTA red carpet function for the first  time saw protests against racial bias in BAFTA nominations.

As pluralism and  multiculturalism fail across Europe and America and racist and religious  profiling become accepted policies for national security, India’s Hindus and  Indian American Hindus must begin to push back and expose the Left in India and  Indian American Leftists as serving the anti-India agendas of Jihadi Islam and  the Generic Church. On the justice of roosting chickens must become a part of  Hindu push-back vocabulary.

Closing word

Global Scholarly Community  concluded its comical letter thus: “We urge the University of Hyderabad to  restore our confidence by living up to its obligation to end institutionalized  discrimination, to educate all students in a climate of respect and empathy,  and to resist political pressures to do otherwise. We are all watching.” We are  all watching indeed! As they say, a cat may look at a king. There is no law  against that. There is also no law against spitting at the sun.
