Deccan Chronicle ‘normalises’ paedophilia to defend ‘revolutionary communist leader’

Getting attracted to a 12 year old girl is fine, as long as it is a big Communist icon that get’s attracted to the child.

Let that sink in.

No, seriously, this actually appeared in the Deccan Chronicle. One would imagine that the Deccan Chronicle has an editor, a management team, a writing team or at least someone, somewhere around the office to scream out in horror and tell them that it’s a bad idea to say that being attracted to a 12 year old girl doesn’t make you a pedophile.

And yet, this actually appeared in print.

Oh thank god that the attraction between the middle aged man and the 12 year old girl was “mutual.” For a moment, I was worried that the 12 year old girl might not have been a consenting adult.

Who in their right mind would actually say something like this? A craven liberal, desperate to defend a fellow communist comrade at any cost, that’s who.

The man they are talking about is comrade A K Gopalan, a legendary leader of the Indian Communists. He served as multiple term member of Parliament from Kannur in Kerala. Heck, the CPI(M) office in Delhi is named “A K Gopalan Bhavan.”

The matter of A K Gopalan came up when a Congress MLA from Kerala by the name of V T Balaram made a Facebook post accusing A K Gopalan of pedophilia. As is their wont, the Communists countered his speech by throwing stones.

As you can read in this old report from The Hindu, it was on September 10, 1952 that A K Gopalan, then 48 years old, decided to marry Susheela, who was then 22 years old. As the Hindu report mentions, the “love story” had lasted for a decade.

Subtract 10 from 22 and you get 12.

And that is how we ended up with some liberal at Deccan Chronicle stuck with the unenviable task of explaining how a 38 year old man getting attracted to a 12 year old girl is not pedophilia.

Anything to defend a Communist, even pedophilia can be explained away.

This brings to my mind another recent event where a liberal mother boasted publicly about showing Hardik Patel’s sex tape to her 12 year old daughter.

And the Outlook allowed her to publish it. Again, the Outlook presumably has an editorial team and a management team and nobody at any stage objected to this.

Let that sink in.

Yes, an adult showing sex tapes to 12 year old girls is okay, as long as it’s a sex tape of great leader Hardik Patel. An adult male getting attracted to a 12 year old girl is also okay, as long as the 38 year old man happens to be a Communist icon.

Have you ever wondered how impostors like Baba Ram Rahim and his organization manage to brainwash people into accepting rampant sexual abuse? Have you ever wondered what kind of fool would fall for this stuff?

Have you ever wondered if “educated” people could fall for frauds of this sort?

You are seeing the same level of brainwashing here. And the brainwashed ones here are not those with little education and opportunities in some remote village. The brainwashed ones here, those supporting their “great leaders” getting attracted to minors and showing sex tapes of their “great leaders” to their 12 year old children are your educated liberals who probably went to good colleges and write for some of the biggest newspapers and magazines in the country.

Let that sink in.
