Landmines Under Trucks

Leftist polemicist Arundhati Roy compares inviting President Bush to India with inviting a brick to drop through your windshield !!

Her words are, typically, clever in form -- ridiculous in substance.

While she was busy sharpening her spiteful words, her ideological allies on the extreme left were busy plotting murder.

Via BBC, 'Many dead' in India rebel attack

At least 25 people have been killed after Maoist rebels blew up two trucks carrying civilians in India's central state of Chhattisgarh, police say.

Senior state police official SK Paswan said the number of dead could rise. Many of the nearly 40 injured were in a critical condition, he told the BBC.

And who were the victims of this carnage?

The victims were tribal people returning from a meeting called to protest against the Maoists' activities in the state.

The terrorists on the left are now killing the very people whose rights they claim they are protecting through such violence. Killing the weak and the poor is their attempt at garnering cheap publicity for their lost cause.

Ms. Roy has aversion to bricks through windshields. She's, however, unlikely to say much about landmines under trucks. What a disgrace.

She's a media glutton. 'nuff said.

I am not surprised that tribals were killed by Roy's soulmates. Note that the holiday villa Roy built in Pachmarhi was also built on tribal land. The MP High Court declared it illegal.

Anonymous: thanks for the tip. Here's more on the unsavory deal. Her hypocrisy is mind-boggling.

I hate to say this, but the term "media whore" certainly applies to Arundhati Roy. She of the Maoists can do no wrog ilk. Sigh- only if all these famous authors were not ditzzy hypocrites.

Dear Anonymous,

This is in response to your comment that Arundhati Roy's villa was built on tribal land. You do not realise that she chose the tribal land from amongst the poorest and paid them lots of money for theier education and rehabilitated them, somewhere in ayemenem in kerala. As such, she was doing a good thing.

The MP High Court's decision does not apply to her - as she is a citizen of the free world and not of india.
