The great left-liberal Twitter meltdown

“Madness, as you know, is like gravity. All it takes is a little push.” – Heath Ledger as The Joker, The Dark Knight.

The recent crackdown on the supposed Naxal sympathisers in connection with the Bhima Koregaon violence as well as assassination plot to murder Prime Minister Narendra Modi has led to a massive meltdown on Twitter of the left-liberals. The first sign of the noose closing down on them is that the suave demeanour gets thrown out of the window.

Founding editor of The Wire Siddharth Varadarajan, referred to a media website as ‘Godi Media’, a wordplay on ‘Modi Media’ where godi stands for ‘lap’, implying the media which sits in the lap of PM Modi.

The term is usually used by trolls to refer to news channels like Republic and anyone who does not conform to the same ideological leaning that people like Varadarajan espouse. To see the former editor of The Hindu use the term shows how the mighty have fallen. Most of them, in the defence of the accused, have ignored glaring facts like Gautam Navlakha having links with notorious ISI funded Kashmiri separatists.

Varadarajan is not the only one to have lost the sense of decorum. The so-called journalists whose primary job is to find out facts are busy dishing out opinions instead of trying to get to the bottom of things.

The assassination plot for Prime Minister Modi is ‘bullsh*t terror plot’ according to NDTV’s Sreenivasan Jain.

And could ‘undeclared emergency’ be far behind?

And Supreme Judge Shekhar Gupta even gave the verdict that these arrests and raids will be tests for the courts for their ‘wisdom and spine’.

And then ‘BJP did it’ narrative.

And a bit of self-promotion never hurts.

It is amusing to see those who usually bat for law taking its due course are up in the arms defending their own and proclaiming them as innocent. Perhaps that is what ‘solidarity’ is all about.
