How left liberals exposed themselves over the tweets of Sehwag and Randeep Hooda

It all started with a tweet from Virender Sehwag. The swashbuckling former opener is known for his sixers on the field and also on twitter and last night he hit another one:

It was an unnamed message but took potshots at the video of Gurmehar Kaur, whose ridiculous messages had been already trolled on social media. And although Sehwag hadn’t made any sly references to left liberals or intellectuals or presstitutes etc, the exact same cabal reacted as if an elephant had stepped on their tail.

To make matters worse, actor Randeep Hooda also stepped in and endorsed Sehwag’s tweet. This was akin to sprinkling salt on the wounds of left liberals and they reacted in a predictable fashion: a coordinated attack on these 2 celebs using all the textbook left liberal contortions:

Freedom of Expression vs Bullying

Sehwag and Hooda were instantly branded as bullies for being celebs who spoke out. Because somehow, these celebs has a lesser degree of Freedom of Expression as compared to her. Because celebs aren’t supposed to speak out (unless they’re speaking on behalf of the left liberal cabal, like the intolerance movement, in which case they must be egged on to speak). Suddenly dissent became intolerance, a joke became bullying, celebrities expressing their opinion became trolls:

Worse, some people put Sehwag and Hooda along with the real offenders who have allegedly issued rape threats to the girl. Any such threats to a woman are highly condemnable and the perpetrators must be brought to book, maybe even using Maneka Gandhi’s special service for such abuse. But that doesn’t mean you can put decent celebrities, who you disagree with, in the same class as such offenders.

The Soldier argument

Shekhar Gupta immediately fell back on the argument that since Gurmehar was the daughter of a martyr, she had the necessary stamp of a patriot hence her words should be gospel truth, unquestionable by the other lesser patriots

However he, in his mad dash to defend this girl, forgot to see how he used a trope of patriotism, which his cabal had attacked the right-wing for. Being a martyr’s daughter doesn’t give her any additional brownie points allowing her leeway to make ridiculous arguments.

Further, if the parent’s occupation matters so much, then this argument is very valid:

The feminist argument

“Oh how can chauvinistic sexist men attack a poor little girl”, was another argument put out. This in fact is the favourite victim card of left liberals when they’re completely out of arguments. The brave woman suddenly turns into a frail damsel in distress whose views must not be contradicted by anyone, just because she’s a woman. Randeep Hooda though answered this jihadi journalist well:

Some went retard on the whole feminist angle, like this guy who has been previously accused of planting fake videos. He readily trashed actresses as bimbettes to prop up fauji daughters. Wonder what he thinks of Gul Panag and Preity Zinta who happen to be both, actress “bimbettes” and fauji daughters. This sort of faux liberalism often exposes itself:

The 20-year-old routine

If her sex wasn’t enough to use to shield her from critics, even her age was used as an excuse. Suddenly it was blasphemy to speak out against the views of a 20-year-old.

Remember, this 20-year-old herself chose to come into the debate, of her own free will. In fact, she must have been chosen because her age allows her to be one among the students of DU, thus making her point more relevant. Why then she shouldn’t be made to listen to the counterpoint to her arguments?

If age is such a great saviour then perhaps even the ones on the right should employ even younger people to make their points, so that age can be used to fight off any criticism. But they DID try this, and then, the left liberals had mercilessly trolled 15 yr old Jhanvi Behal only because she spoke against their ideology.

Personal attacks

When the going gets tough, the mentally bankrupt go personal. Randeep Hooda was eventually branded as an actor who does B grade movies, because actors from B grade movies have no right to express a view-point, whereas a random girl has that right only because her father was a brave nationalist.

“State” of mind

If the person was not enough, then the state was next in the line of fire. Randeep Hooda is from Haryana and that was enough for some to defame Haryana and all the men of Haryana. Much logic, Very Stereotyping.

We wonder how Rana Ayyub would react to people stereotyping her based on her religion.

In short, all the tricks of the trade were used to target Sehwag and Hooda, by all hues of left liberals, and as they did so, their masks of “liberalism” also fell off one by one.
