    @rxrx: seems that way. Not like that's particularly unusual, though. Modhi's party is Hindu nationalist. Considering Pakistan was split from India just to be a Muslim country and folks were relocated at the time, there's been an undercurrent of "go, we made a place for you," there among some Hindus and other groups that seems to think of them as nuisance foreigners who aren't really Indian, and thus aren't entitled to the rights of citizens and should "go home."

    Modhi's government makes me uneasy. Mixing religion and politics is never a good thing. What's next, ethnic cleansing?

    Agreed. And I hope not, but that's what comes to mind when you talk about stripping people of their citizenship. They instituted requirements to show proof of citizenship in one of the nation's states earlier this year, with a lot of people discovering they lacked any of the proper documentation to prove such.

    Anti-semitism is racism towards Jews. You contradict yourself. Flatly so. What's more, this is that very classic and recognisable case of depicting Jews as a separate community who never assimilate and thus have divided loyalties, are untrustworthy, and therefore at fault for their own discrimination.

    Boris being racist and offensive not just to Jews but also to a full myriad of groups is an issue, one repeatedly raised during the campaign. To try to paint it as not a problem is disingenuous, and a pointless effort to apportion blame to bias against parties instead of actual fault. In any case, this is a) whataboutism that does nothing to actual mitigate Corbyn/Labour issues; b) a continued attempt to drag the topic back toward Israel/Palestine, which I have strongly exhorted you to stop believing to constitute the be-all and end-all of the question of anti-semitism. Please take the point. When you do so, you might consider how few of the problems I quoted you even attempted (poorly) to dismiss or minimise, and what this says about the situation Corbyn's Labour has come into.

    He's already done ethnic cleansing before. Google Gujurat Riots 2002. It's pretty much the only option they have if they go for this mad enterprise because where are you going to deport all these people. Even if only 1% of the muslims are denied citizenship the government does not have the money to maintain them in camps. So they have starvation and eventual death do to that to look forward to. Even Bangladesh isn't going to accept people on the border because most of them have been in India for over 50 yrs.

    This is a the result of a separate issue related to that. When the final rolls came out most of the muslims could prove their citizenship, most of the hindus couldn't. This was exacerbated by the fact that most of the muslims identified as assamese and could speak the local language but the hindus couldn't muddying the waters further. This backfired pretty terribly for them so this is an attempt to fix that.

    "Bernie might be ethically Jewish, but..." LMAO
    This is your brain on liberalism.

    Even if Bernie is actually cool with Israel, and even if his family was the victim of holocaust, liberals (in this case also an actual fascist sympathizer) will find a way to throw the "anti-semite" label on him.

    Identity politics is fucking disgusting.
