How Do Us Sikhs Feel About Republicans?


Recommended Posts

I never realized how simple politics could be.

Republicans are all stupid idiots. Democrats are trying to do what is right. Obama is a saint who is always being obstructed.

Its very dangerous to take complicated matters and make them simple.

Very true. But what Fox type Republicans seem to frequently do is make the simple unnecessarily complex. I mean, look at healthcare, even Britain for all its flaws has free healthcare for everyone. Most of developed Europe does - but publicans fight the notion keeping the states like a third world nation.

Plus it isn't hard to see many Republican, neocons are frequently racist types with extremely uncompassionate attitudes towards those less well off than themselves. We know this mentality well because it stemmed from this island and was the driving force during the colonial period. Now it lives on in the people who left here and migrated to America it seems?

Obama isn't a saint but he certainly isn't anything like the demonised fellow as represented by relentlessly dishonest and totally unbalanced Republican aligned media outlets like Fox. How can people who have no problem playing such foul games be trusted by anyone other than idiots or bigots who support their agenda?

There is a saying in English that you should apply here:

"Many a true word is said in jest."

That Immortal Technique clip was cool. The guy is very good at articulating his point. Heard some of his tunes last night, they were what hip hop used to be like. Very conscious.

I suggest discussing issues not parties. Discussing parties means you say alot, but you say nothing at all.

That's a cop out. The party I'm talking about harbours right wing, barely concealed racist agendas, whatever they may have been like in the past. Your country and this one have already been dragged into an unnecessary war by these morons. Those people being the preferred political choice of the banking sector, whose greed led to the current global recession, says a lot in itself.

Fact is that they are the party for the privilege for affluent whites. That is where their interests lie and be damned with the rest of us. They also harbour very self-centred evil men who feel no compunction to profit from war and death. Exactly like colonial Brits did not long ago. Pretending anything else is essentially becoming part of the whole machinery that supports these types of things.

People have to recognise organised sources of negativity that can and do effect our lives. This is clearly one. Those Tea party type people need to reform themselves before they cause more trouble in the world. If the implications of their stupidity was only confined to the US, I wouldn't care two hoots, but seeing as they commonly rope in the Anglocentric leaders of my country into their schemes, I'm forced to pay attention.

1. I am staunchly libretarian, and have been for years.

2. I am not going to bother defending the "white privelage" thing, I know its an argument that I can't win. Think what you will.

3. I am fiscally conservative. I didn't like what Bush did, I don't like what Obama is doing. I think government is a BAD thing. I think the tendency of our generation to get their politics from what is "cool" or what SNL or Comedy Central tells us is a very stupid thing. You think its as simple as repubs are bad and dems are good... ignorance is bliss I guess. Thinking like that doesn't accomplish anything.

4. White supremacist is your big hang up. You expect me to dance every time you toss it out there and I am just not going to. Think what you will.

5. You do not speak for all sikhs. I guess marrying a punjabi girl, learning sikhi, going to gurdwara for over a year, helping out with langar, waking up for amrit vela, and choosing to raise my children in a religion that I was not raised in ( she offered to convert to catholic for me, but I refused to push my beliefs on her) all occurred because I am a white supremacist who is not a friend of sikhs. One day, many many years from now I suspect, you will realize that you do not know nearly as much as you think you do. If you have such strong feelings... please... go into politics. I think after a while you would find your gross generalizations were very inaccurate.

We lived in deep south for a number of years which is staunch republican. I found some best

human beings among them.

Do not equate bad things with conservatives.Many of them are not racists and most of them

value family values.Bad apples are in every community.

The point was some stupid people being part of a party dont make it good or bad. Good repubs dont make the TV.

If I was a canadian and kept seeing sikhs on tv associated with gangster and assumed they were all gangsters... dont you see how stupid that would be?

Thanks for throwing in the sikh kid thing, way to keep the conversation classy.

Your letting them off the hook quite lightly, sure, individually some of them may be as good as gold but that Republican type ideology they support in its modern form is pretty nasty. It's global effects are pretty toxic too.

Someone needs to tell teach these nice conservatives you speak of to open their eyes a bit more before they stupidly unleash another barely educated fool onto the global scene with disastrous consequences.

That is like seeing some of the German people who supported Nazis into power as nice, because they were polite on a one to one basis ignoring the fact that the thing they supported turned out to be some evil destructive force.
