#1 The Indian equivalent of the liberal democrat party loses, spelling doom for marxists, open-borders, islamists, 'diversity' preachers and climate and economy experts.

What's amazing is that Pak PM Imran Khan wished for a win for the conservatives in India.

#2 Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe Nehru was born in Kashmir and thus would never consider its loss to Pakistan.

#3 Not quite correct, Chereting Pelosi1889. According to Wikipedia he was born in Uttar Pradesh. Wikipedia adds:

[Jawaharlal Nehru] was also known as Pandit Nehru due to his roots with the Kashmiri Pandit community.

#5 Indians I've talked politics with considered the Gandhis to be insanely corrupt. Like the Clintons on steroids and vindaloo.

#6 The problem is in the Congress Party, headed by the Gandhi clan (or so people think). Actually the truth has more parallel in contemporary US politics.

The Congress Party is an amalgam of politicians working for bureaucrats, faux-leftists and profiteers deeply invested in robbing natural resources, drying up water tables, mining the fuck out of land and selling out to corporations. This party needs a 'saleable face', a name that India can trust - what better than Gandhi. Synonymous with the Mahatma. Also India first learnt to walk on its legs after being raped and pillaged by the British and the Muslims for 940 years, under the brave Leadership of men and women from this party. But as the govt. was based on absolute power of the few, their dynasty gave in to greed. The last okay leader was Indira Gandhi, the first woman PM of India. That was in the 80s.

Today's Congress Party is just the Indianized version of the democrat socialist pattern to which every 'progressive' asshole fascist subscribes around the world. eg: Trudeau, Merkel, Macron, Obama, Cameron... you know this list.

Many people in India who praise Modi also diss Trump, unaware that they both share an anti-islamist, truly progressive mindset. Both are committed to the furthering of their national interests and both focus on the economy and infrastructure, giving a backseat to puerile social justice and PC shit.

There's a pattern of resurgence of conservative power all over the world I think.
