Riot at Indian TV station over Exiled Online article

This has to be the single weirdest episode in my journalism career–and that’s saying a lot, considering all the strange and scary shit I’ve been through over the past decade-plus. I caused a mass riot in India, leaving 185 people arrested so far, and about 100 businesses owned by Larry Summers’ oligarch-friends smoldering in ruins. The class war is on–but not in the supposedly free-spirited United States of America, where you can rape Americans of everything they’re worth and never worry about so much as a broken window… instead my article sparked an uprising on the other side of the globe. Go figure.

A blog entry I posted a few months back on Larry Summers’ evil Indian billionaire sponsor, Mukesh Ambani, became a major TV sensation in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh yesterday, sparking mass riots against the oligarchs’ business interests. Mobs “went on the rampage in Guntur, Anantapur and Kurnool districts and Hyderabad city, where they attacked retail outlets and malls, cell phone towers and petrol stations operated by the two Reliance groups,” according to one report. “They burnt effigies of Mukesh and Anil Ambani.”

The Times of India blamed it all on me:

Congress workers went on a rampage across Andhra Pradesh on Thursday after a regional TV channel flashed a report… [that] referred to an article written by one Mark Ames, a California-born American journalist and writer, on a website, exiledonline.com titled ‘Enemy of Larry Summers Ex-Boss Dies in Mysterious Helicopter Crash.’

The blog entry in question speculated on the mysterious death of a popular Indian politician who’d crossed the Ambani brothers, and the strange coincidence between the populist politicians’ helicopter death not long after he demanded that the billionaires give up some of their ill-begotten oil riches to the state’s 76 million citizens…and the double-strangeness that in the heat of the savage feud between the two Ambanis, one of them was nearly killed in a helicopter sabotage. Larry Summers, who runs America’s economy for President Obama, was paid hundreds of thousands of dollars by the richer of the two Ambani brothers to serve on an advisory board–Larry chose to side with the richer, scarier brother over the other brother whose helicopter was nearly downed.

Anyway, today the police in Andhra Pradesh threatened action against the TV station that read my blog entry over the airwaves.

This is still developing, stay tuned…

    You exaggerate. Either that, or you’re a Western patroned Pakistani slave with a knee jerk hatred of all things hindu. India is a democracy. In a democracy, there is a real and meaningful divergence of opinion, at some cost to the broader society I might add, not this somnambulant apathy that find the West barely removed from the sterility of “1984” or a Pakistan in thrall of a heaven populated by virgins and eunuchs.

    These Anglo Saxons from both the UK and US have been nothing but trouble for India (along with that other bunch of Abrahamic nutcases, the Arabs) from the day they set foot on our shores. This isn’t going to go away any day soon and it is up to us Indians to defend our vigorous democracy, warts and all. After all, which other country has sizeable minorities from all corners of the globe and can still function as vigorously as ours does. The white world is esentially out shopping, the Chinese daren’t step out of line, the Muslim world is a front for Arab domination and our unfortunate friends in Africa still suffer under the legacy of a pernicious and cruel exploitation from the North.

    Anvesh, are you by any chance related to Jessica B? Here’s your quote: “jst dont answer common sense..cos it aint has any proof” Here’s hers: “I live in georegia but i dont see rusia no where not even sound but they says theres tanks should i be worrie i herd on the news that rusia has invaded but i dont see them no where wats going on”. Damn I thought I heard it all when Bush told me to enter the solar system, (“It is time for the human race to enter the solar system”) but I guess I was wrong.

    Retard @198: You do realize that placing the truth, followed by Ames bashing isn’t a counterargument, right?

    The mere fact that Indians are able to use English, a language as foreign to it’s remote location from Europe, historically, geographically and culturally is, in my view, a testimony to their adaptability, flaws notwithstanding. One wonders how many of those of the Anglo-Saxon diaspora converse in any other language other than English. indifferently or otherwise.

    If the truth be known, everyone of us cleaves to our group, more so in these days of irrational regionalisms and endless international rivalry. This is a legacy of a lengthy global domination by the Anglo-Saxon, who sees the world as his to form and then alternatively ridicule, as if life were som infantile game of catch-up. We, all of us, Indian included, have become the particpants in this rather tragic global baiting in which we are all judged by standards that are not matched by reality.

    India despite its many flaws, and flawed it is like any other country in the world, (a world replete with baseless wars, toothless secularisms, empty democratics and false egalitarianisms, has coped rather admirably with balancing the needs of all its population, especially the fractious Muslim who is invariably disconnected with the lands of his birth unless they are exclusively Islamic and narrowly Arabised.

    In the midst of these immensely challenging diversities, India retains some semblance of openness, an openness sufficiently robust to survive the monumentally costly consequences of it’s logic.

    One wonders just how America or the EU would fare in the event that it’s Islamic population numbered a third of its population with all the resultant secularist premiums in pursuing a comprehensive pluralist policy?

    Ram,

    Your post, very politely gave me a hint that you might think that I am racist. Let me clear out that thought right away: I’m not. I dated extensively amongst many races and I speak several languages. I’ve also mentioned Jessica B with Anvesh, so I wasn’t singling out any race.

    I come to this website primarily for the laughs. Occasionally Ames will say something obvious, “the corporations are making a profit selling plasma, while many more lives could be saved if plasma wasn’t used for mere profit” and you get a post saying “Ames is an evil Commie” and a response “no, Ames is a Saint”. It’s all rather hilarious, in a very dark humor way, that instead of working to solve their own problems and standing up to the people hurting them, the masses would rather bash/defend Ames. And occasionally someone like Anvesh posts giving me the icing on the cake.

    I need dark humor to function best at my job. It’s rather sad, but then again, at least I get to study what I want. You’re one of the few posters here that I am engaging in a serious manner. My name, ROFL, means “Rolling on Floor, Laughing”.

    In Europe many people speak multiple languages. Unfortunately this is not the case in the US.

    However reading these posts also gives me a glimpse of how the Indian News Networks work. It’s not a good glimpse. And yet, as the Russians have shown, you can have crappy news and an educated populace.

    Prior to the war in Ossetia, I wasn’t too big on Russian posters; they were getting their asses handed to them, and with the rare exception of people like Vlad Kalashnikov, weren’t very good. (Russian Hackers exempted of course.) However, when their country was attacked, the Russians got their act together, and with the aid of honest journalists, like Ames, put on a hell of show online. Poor Rupert Murdoch had to delete 39,000,000 Google Hits in disgrace. They’ve also earned major gloating rights as a result.

    The thing is, the people have to act on their own. Like the Russians did, but you have to attack them for them to get their act together. The Indians shouldn’t be going around saying “Ames, give us prove on a silver platter” – but investigating and busting local corruption on their own. If one person breaks the rules, he is arrested. If many people break the rules, the government gets arrested, even if it’s only the local idiots. Ames gave you guys an outline, act on it. Don’t just go out and demonstrate, but find the evidence and use it wisely. And then demonstrate and rob a few stores.

    Telling me that Europeans speak a variety of Europeans languages is like telling me that Indians speak a range of Indian languages. Name me one Asian language that is spoken in Europe to the same degree that English is on the sub-continent? Had the tables been reversed and Asian invadede Europe, I venture that any linguistic ability would have been to the same degree as the sub-continent. Apples for apples.

    We Indians are ever aware of the corruption in India and the need to tackle it. Hence the more volatile nature of Indian democracy, which the BBC is fond of ridiculing. Vigorous democracies are noted by the periodic convulsions that set societies such as India apart from apparently more measured societies such as Europe and the West, or more repressed ones such as Japan (with its inferred authoritarianism) and China (with its outright limits on expression).

    However, we draw a distinction between progressively pushing our society toward the ideal and tearing it apart (simply finishing the work of the colonists in the process) and shooting ourselves in the foot, as we see in the Islamic world. India is a strong democracy, abiding as it does by that process. We are wary of China like infiltation of our social-economy by the West hence you don’t read the kumbayas about Indian economic wonders on WSJ. We are precisely where we need to be…minding our own business and dealing with our ills with sufficient gusto. In fact the more I write, the more I realise how much we stand to lose were we to let fifth columnists upset our sovereign direction.

    In fact, I suspect few if any societies would withstand the tensions and costs generated by affording a sizeable minority with loyalties to an external hegemonic empire (the Arab centric Islamic Empire), open plurality, loyalties notwithstanding.

    The sheer cost of maintaining an open debate alongside the externalities and other opportunity costs of an Arab focussed Islam are fierce. Add to this, the tensions generated by a Western capital with an equally hegemonistic record and India’s secular costs are phenomenal.

    Contrast this with China which has acquiesced to Western capitalism as did an earlier Japan and it is my view that the financial as well as cultural costs are worth a robust plurality, empowerment if you would.

    Acquiescing to Western hegemony always comes at a cost. Capitalism is enamoured of a singular authoritarianism that would see the rise within India of entrenched forces of neo-fascist corporatism such as the likes of European neo-nazis, Japanese nationalists and Chinese revisionists, forces that invariably act to betray the principles of plurality whilst reducing a society to a bland corporatocracy.

    In other words, India would pay a price in embracing compliant modernity and I suspect that it would be a high price in which the ordinary man is reduced to a mindless unit of labour and consumption.

    There are progressive forces at play in India determined to ensure that our democracy does act to represent all and every Indian and does uplift us from the generations of mismanagement by both the Arab and European opportunist. We have a strong and vibrant mix of interests stretching from the Islamist, through the Hindu, then those who aspire to assimilate into wider Westren capitalism to those who espouse the egalitarian aspirations of the masses. Balance and evolution with the ultimate objective of society with dignity is what many Indians strive for, English linguistic ability aside.

    We are aware however that this is our road to walk and that we cannot expect support from the broader super tribal world we live in. The lack of any radical protest from affluent Western “progressives” following the illegal occupation of a weak Iraq and China’s predatory moves on Iraq’s oil in service of it’s Western funded manufacturing sector coupled with crass reaction in Arab led global Islam with it’s close investment ties with the West is clear evidence of the predatory nature of the contemporary global order.

    Ram & Vinod, what are your views on two other BRIC countries, Brazil and Russia?

  • 18. Ram  |  January 20th, 2010 at 9:50 pm

    ROFL

    I disregard the BRIC alliance altogether when considering any possible challenge to the current Islam/Western dominated global order. The former USSR has yet to recover from it’s resounding defeat at the hands of Western capital and it’s Islamic allies, and, Russia hasn’t as yet formulated a post Cold War identity. In fact, I’m not entirely sure where any future challenge to global capital will arise (subject to my views at the end of this post). Certainly not from Russia, China, or the Islamic world. India has, as a matter of practicality, fallen in with Israel (I’m inferring I’m a hellfire and brimstone subscriber to these crazy Zionist ideas)and will not, I suspect, raise any challenge to the present state of geo-political upheaval. China, as I have said in a previous post, has all but acquiesced to global capital and is largely a paper tiger on the global stage despite all the posturing. When all’s said and done, the West and the opportunistically foolhardy Wahhabist have created the world order we find ourselves lumbered with and it is to India’s credit that it enjoy’s a degree of sovereign direction despite these forces of imperial coercion.

    I suspect that in due course, forces of the economic dialectic will arise to see a transition to a new global order given the approaching twin storms of peak resources and climate but that is a while off yet.

    Hindus are animals in their earlier or 2nd birth. Hindus treat their fellow hindus born in lower caste as “untouchables”.

    Hindus prey upon gullible westerners in the name of gurus, boga etc. and rape their girls and boys (check sri satya sai baba and all gurus)

    Hindus go to foreign countries and prey upon their jobs and abuse the locals – this lead to quarrel and when the locals defend themselves, they cry racism = ALL EXCEPT THEM ARE RACISTS.

    Hindus claim their culture is greatest and all others are inferior while doing the following

    — they treat baby girls as misfortune (check india infancticide) , they kill widows (sati), they are the most corrupt , they use women as temple prostitutes, and in their movies use western prostitutes for each song enjoying their expsoure.

    I presume you are muslim given your visceral hatred of all things Hindu (which I might add has almost assumed a racial quality in the mind of the Muslim). Here are a few interesting facts about Islam:

    1 Islam is an Arab centred and centric empire led from Saudi Arabia (Sunni) and Iraq (Shia). The former is a close ally of the West and is heavily invested in providing liquidity into the West. The same Saudi funds the feudal struggle in Afghanistan and Pakistan where the living conditions of the average citizen are rapidly sliding into a black hole. Iran, despite all the posturing on the world stage, colluded and continues to collude with the West in the pacification and occupation of secular Iraq. It is also one of the largest suppliers of the Wests’ lifeblood, oil, without which, the West would grind to a halt. Thankyou Iran!

    2 Islam considers all the world to be conquered and made in the image of the Arab world. No quarter is given to local loyalties or culture. All must give way to the demand that converts fully immerse themselves in the requirements of Imperial Arabism.

    3 Muslims consider heaven to be a misogynists dream populated with virgins and eunuchs, all there to serve every whim of your average sexual addict. The Arab overlord considers his colonised vassal little more than a beast of burden, to be applied to the bejewelling of such horrors as Dubai at minimal pay, if any.

    4 Muslims prey upon gullible westerners in the name of Mohammed as all the world is Dar ul Harb, ruled by infidels, and not subject to the niceities of civility, decency and honesty.

    5 Muslims go to foreign countries and prey upon their jobs and abuse the locals in their demands for Sharia – this lead to quarrel and when the locals defend themselves, they cry racism as we find in places such as England= ALL EXCEPT THEM ARE RACISTS and we are infidels.

    6 Muslims claim the Arab culture is greatest and all others are inferior while doing the following

    — they treat women as mere objects (check widespread mistreatment of women, subject as they are to all manner of barbaric conventions), they kill sisters and daughters (honour killings), they are the most corrupt , they use boys as eunuchs and sodomy is widespread. We had the recent news item of some UAE overlord subjecting an Afghan peasant to systematic sodomy for some trivial offence on his part, and in their daily lives routinely prey on non-muslim females, prostitutes or otherwise, in a bid to circumvent the rules on sex with muslims females.

    The Abrahamic god & devil continue to “fight” each other in this absurd “War on Terror” where we find the travesty of poor peasants in Pakistan being bombed from the air with contemporary “Terminator” technology with nary a peep from Saudi Arabia, the master of the Ummah.

    India disgraced itself yet again. A series of gruesome rapes and sexual assaults have served as rude reminders of how frighteningly unsafe the country has become for women.

    A 36-year-old Swiss diplomat was returning home after a screening of a film. It was just 10 pm and the parking lot was still fairly busy, with people coming in and out from the auditorium and the adjoining restaurant complex. Undeterred, however, by the fact that they ran the risk of being spotted, the two assailants struck.

    As the victim opened her Toyota Qualis, the duo pushed her into the back seat. One of the men raped her, while the other drove through the well-lit streets of South Delhi. Finally, after half-an-hour she was dropped off at Safdarjung Enclave and was casually given instructions on how to get back home.

    The man who sexually assaulted the Swiss diplomat was well-dressed and spoke fluent English. The other, in a T-shirt, was more comfortable with Hindi. Both were in their late 20s and police suspect they had followed their victim from the auditorium.

    According to the diplomat’s testimony to the police, the man who sexually assaulted her seemed to be coldly casual about the entire act.

    After raping her he went into a monologue about life in Switzerland and Europe and spoke of the sanctity of Indian marriages.

    Presumably you saw the recent televised images of a poor Afghan being beaten up in the sands of the UAE and apparently sodomised for some small misdemeanour against his Arab overlord. Each day, women are routinely abused and raped across the entirety of this planet, as are men (in those place where sodomy is rife). This isn’t a perfect world and you especially, as a Muslim with your own lamenatble record on the mistreatment of women (let alone men), are in no position to be pointing the finger.

    Hindu temples practically say : “All Hindus and all animals including gods are admitted, only Untouchables are not admitted”.

    http://ambedkarquotes.wordpress.com/

    More than 160 million people in India are considered “Untouchable”—people tainted by their birth into a caste system that deems them impure, less than human.

    Human rights abuses against these people, known as Dalits, are legion. A random sampling of headlines in mainstream Indian newspapers tells their story: “Dalit boy beaten to death for plucking flowers”; “Dalit tortured by cops for three days”; “Dalit ‘witch’ paraded naked in Bihar”; “Dalit killed in lock-up at Kurnool”; “7 Dalits burnt alive in caste clash”; “5 Dalits lynched in Haryana”; “Dalit woman gang-raped, paraded naked”; “Police egged on mob to lynch Dalits”.

    “Dalits are not allowed to drink from the same wells, attend the same temples, wear shoes in the presence of an upper caste, or drink from the same cups in tea stalls,” said Smita Narula, a senior researcher with Human Rights Watch, and author of Broken People: Caste Violence Against India’s “Untouchables.”

Merely walking through an upper-caste neighborhood is a life-threatening offense.

    Nearly 90 percent of all the poor Indians and 95 percent of all the illiterate Indians are Dalits.

    To the two posters above.

    Show me one instance where a single muslim country acts for the benefit of it’s labouring masses let alone particular a sub-group within those masses. Islamic social inequality is singular in the fact that it extends from the Victorian to the feudal and is characterised by terminal social regression. It is not simply a case of Islam being a society in transition, rather that it’s economic inequities are underlined by theology and the clerical class with the resultant social divide bordering on the barbaric. The treatment of Islamic women is legendary, extending as it does from rudimentary chauvinism as we find in places such as Turkey with rough notions of modernity to outright brutality in places such as Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan (to name a few) which are little more than hellholes for women and the working classes. Added to this is the blatent mismanangement of the wealth of this region where we find corruption, nepotism and flourishing kleptocracies without even the barest of democratic aspirations apart from Turkey with it’s ambitions for EU accession.

    If you consider Islam and it’s fascist procedures a preferable option to a work in progress such as Indian democracy, I am harldy surprised that Islamic states are such fertile ground for corporate predation. Unfortunately, cults such as Islam have a tendency to breed blinkers and the limited thinking that goes with intellectual vacuums.
