2014, the year ‘liberals’ lost their marbles

The fundamental trick used by insurance companies to advertise their products is to sell lots of fear by wrapping it in random scary predictions of future. Fear and victimization are very strong tools. It is very easy to convince anyone that other people are conspiring to pull them down. It works like narcotics. When the influenced victim wants to consume more and more conspiracy theories, the agents start increasing the dosages.

After 2014 election results, the self-assumed secular-liberal journalists of India had not much to celebrate. People discarded their old banal inclusive concerns and voted for development.

2014 was a bad year for journalists who baked their stories on the flames of secularism. 2014 was a bad year for media faces who made their fortune by glamorizing the victimhood of a few poor non-Hindu individuals during elections. 2014 was a bad year for social figures who manipulated selective bigot stories to generalize a bigger community.

The sensation created by Modi before 2014 results was expected to fade with time for two reasons – a) people had enough politics on their plate, so they were expected to detox it in later part of the year. b) The promises made during elections don’t often match the reality. Some overhyped delusions were expected to break and disappoint people.

However, more than waiting for the Modi wave to make impact, people were also waiting to track the behavioral pattern of those secular-liberal journalists, who faced a severe moral and ideological defeat in May, 2014.

And as expected, these people didn’t fail to disappoint. The miserable lot hibernated for a few days, but then returned with a much more malicious venom to circulate that in focused target groups.

Like insurance agents, these people have desperately started convincing minorities about their unsafe future. This ridiculous post in Scroll.in generalizes a few random events and derives absurd premise of social development.

The post, like many other similar attempts, appears like just another extremely desperate effort to grab attention and terrorize the “minority”. The posts reads:

Churches have been mysteriously burnt, adivasis have been beaten up and others made to participate in Hindu “reconversion” ceremonies, Muslim men have been falsely accused and put in jail for “love jihad”, anti-Muslim riots have taken place in Gujarat: the list is endless. Modi did not so much as condemn any of these.

If you do a very basic google search, you will find that all these issues (conversions, riots, attacks) were prevalent in the previous government regimes too. Then these liberal-secular journalists chose to neglect such incidences as public mishap instead of demonizing it to such extents.

When I read the headline of this post (see the image below), I see scars of many divisive losers who are trying hard hide the wounds they received in 2014.

Hope they get well soon, so that next year, on this day, I write an article titled: 2015, the year liberals became truly liberal.
