Liberals have a meltdown as Pranab Mukherjee hails RSS founder Hedgewar as ‘great son of India’

Former President Pranab Mukherjee on Thursday visited the birthplace of Kehsav Baliram Hedgewar, the founder of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), and hailed him as “a great son of Mother India”. The Congress leader is in Nagpur to address the RSS cadre on the occasion of the final leg of three-year training programme called the ‘Tritiya Varsh Varg’.

Mukherjee wrote “Today I came here to pay my respect and homage to a great son of Mother India,” in the visitor’s book ahead of his speech at the RSS headquarters in Nagpur.

While the Congress party has already displayed immense displeasure at Pranab Mukherjee’s presence at Nagpur, the “liberals” and “journalists” who talk constantly about freedom of expression, democratic values and the virtue of neutrality experienced a Twitter meltdown.

Ramchandra Guha, who is known to be a Nehru worshipper and a propagandist par excellence lamented how the Nagpur ‘show’ must be a torture for Pranab Mukherjee.

A neutral journalist with ‘The Hindu’ displayed his neutrality by terming the former president as a ‘rogue’. He lamented that the Congress party “tolerated” him for so long. The journalist who constantly talks about Modi ruining the economy perhaps didn’t realise that in his love for Congress, he ended up ruining their narrative of the Congress government handing over a thriving economy to the BJP government.

The poor man’s Barkha Dutt strikes again! Nidhi Razdan is famous for conducting entire debates on fake news and getting called out on social media, also spoke about how RSS should take this opportunity to engage with people of different political ideology without realising that it was what RSS was doing and exactly what her meltdown was all about.

Siddarth Varadarajan, the paragon of neutral virtues, Editor of the leftist propaganda website and the man who shelved the Vadra scam expose for 7 long months tweeted about the tragedy of Pranab Mukherjee’s speech being telecast live. Of course, he wrapped his bigotry up neatly with concerns of “taxpayers money”, which clearly wasn’t a concern for his colleague and co-founder who got lakhs from state-funded Rajya Sabha TV and featured prominently in Radia Tapes.

Nikhil Wagle, who has been caught lying and was exposed by a fellow journalist went on an unhinged rant and blamed Mukherjee for the publicity that RSS was getting because of him.

Shekhar Gupta, Editor of the often-caught-lying portal ‘The Print’ and inventor of the famous “coup” story tweeted about RSS needing to progress with the times. The hate that had consumed most of the liberal ecosystem, including him, stopped him from making complete sense.

The liberal meltdown also prompted some astute observations as to the hypocrisy of the “liberals” and Rahul Gandhi’s Congress party.

Rahul Kanwal, a journalist with India Today observed that the ones who were screaming the loudest about tolerance, are the ones displaying intolerance about Mukherjee’s Nagpur visit.

Rahul Roushan tweeted about how the Islamisation of Congress was complete where Pranab Mukherjee was being ousted as an apostate.

And, of course, some couldn’t resist plugging the famous interview, where much to everyone’s joy, Pranab Mukherjee was put Rajdeep Sardesai in his place for repeated interruptions.

One can assume that the nervous breakdown is only about to get worse as the 2019 elections draw closer.
