Some of you readers may think that this is purely an Indian-bashing site. But if you read through the almost 200 posts and 10,000+ comments, you will find this forum to be open and vibrant. I myself like to think I am an equal opportunity hater -- if you are a corrupt, inept fuck-up, I'll write about you, regardless of your race.
It just so happens that the Indian-dominated H-1B lobby has incurred my wrath of late, and nothing is worse then to be the target of a pissed-off Marine with a weapon. In this case, my weapon is this blog. That, and my Beretta.
And every now and then, I get a comment from an Indian disgusted with this blog, but also honest about the impact that the venal forces of India, Inc. have had on the impression Americans have of honest Indians. Here is one such response:
"It is incredibly amusing to see how hard you try to 'expose' an Indian connection (and therefore, incriminating evidence lol) in every accident, fraud or other unfortunate event that you see.
I agree that your cause is genuine and deserves attention. Offshoring and visa abuse are causing wage depression and unemployment in the American IT sector, no doubt about that. Anyone who says otherwise is deluded or lying. However, you lose any and all credibility you had by employing your current method of 'protest'. I'm afraid to show you the way of Gandhi; you'd probably dismiss him immediately as a near-naked dalit slumdog motherfucker! ;)
My parents worked very hard to be able to afford an excellent education in one of the greatest countries of the world for their child. I worked very hard to earn my Master's degree and land a decent job. I sincerely believe (and have consistently proven) that I am good at my job; my American superiors have not given me any reason to believe otherwise. I hope you agree that I have a legitimate claim at living the American dream (please pardon the tired cliche).
Btw, inciting hatred and violence is not covered by the First Amendment as far as I know... but I have been wrong before. The people who read your blog and take to violence will be stupid butthurt idiots anyway.
Finally, I do not care if you are racist; that is a problem that only you (and the law) can help you(rself) with. This slumdog sincerely wishes you good luck! "
Now, this guy seems like a nice Desi. Note the absence of Hinglish, like "ur", "bcoz", "i will rape ur daughter in front of your wife", etc.
I have no qualms with this sort of Indian. What I do hate is the shower-shoe wearing booger-farmer that has arrived on our shores in last decade. You know, the creep that went through the 3-week I.T. boot camp in India, and now is being shopped around by his Desi bodyshop as a "Sr. Software Architect".
That, readers, is a SLUMDOG. We in the INSURGENCY know the difference between an Indian immigrant with an MBA from an American university, and a dowry-chasing scumbag here to make a quick buck.
So, like the American forces in the 'Nam welcomed the help of the vicious Hmong tribe, we in the INSURGENCY welcome the contribution that real Indian immigrants can make to the cause.
It's not like we are a bunch racists rednecks. Many of us are minorities and immigrants. In fact, some women are the most active members of the insurgency.
So if you honestly despise Indian-on-Indian exploitation, misogyny, bigotry, and all the other facets of the India offshoring/outsourcing industry, you should do something else besides threatening to sue me, plotting on ImmigrationVoice.org how to invade my privacy, and sending me death threats.
Clean up your own house, Desis.
