Dreams of liberals who were trying hard to project the person who waved the Tricolor at US Capitol riots as a ‘Hindu nationalist’ were in for a rude shock when it came to light that he is a Keralite Christian Congress supporter named Vincent Xavier.
Virginia resident Vincent Xavier Palathingal’s roots are in Kerala’s Kochi and he is said to be close to Congress leader Shashi Tharoor. Xavier said that he had carried the Bharatiya flag to show that the movement was not racists adding that he and other Bharatiyas were present there to register their protests against the ‘fraud’ that took place at the recently concluded US elections and that they had nothing to do with the subsequent violence that broke out.
So while the likes of Rana Ayyub and Audrey Truschke along with several others from the liberal cabal were trying to pass Vincent off as a ‘Hindu supremacist’ or ‘Bhakt’, it turned out that he was a Shashi Tharoor fan. The liberals were hoping they could guilt-trip and blame Hindus for what according to them is an act that brought shame to the nation.
Everyone from Congress leaders to the left-liberal cabal was quick to jump to the conclusion that ‘Hindu supremacists’ had joined forces with White racist Trump supporters, thereby embarrassing the country. Rana Ayyub claimed she was embarrassed to see ‘Hindu supremacists’ along with White supremacists.
Congress leader Shashi Tharoor opined that there were some Bharatiyas with the same mentality as Trumpist mobs who denounce all those who disagree with them as traitors and anti-national. So-called fact-checker Zubair (Zoo_Bear) was quick to label the person as a ‘bhakt’ without as much as bothering to check the facts.
Vincent has himself shared the pics while stating that there were people of different nationalities who were present at the protest site along with flags of their countries as they believed massive fraud had taken place in the US elections.
While the anti-Hindu brigade was on an overdrive to prove Vincent as a pro-Modi ‘Hindu supremacist’ with Tharoor joining the cacophony, it turns out that Vincent shares a warm rapport with Shashi Tharoor and the two have met earlier. The two not only met at Washington but Vincent even hosted Tharoor at a convention in Kerala in 2015.
The left brigade often keeps jumping the gun out of its hatred for anything Bharatiya and Hindu. It is for the likes of Rana, Truschke, Tharoor, and Zubair among others to explain how and what made them conclude that the person involved was a ‘Hindu supremacist’. It is high time liberals stopped resorting to blatant misinformation campaigns and verified facts before arriving at conclusions.
For a change, mainstream media outlet Times of India has also done a decent fact-check on this blatant propaganda that was being spread by Hindu-haters like twitter handle @hindutva_watch which had even used an image from Ayodhya Ram Mandir bhoomi pujan celebrations last year in US, falsely passing it off as ‘bhakts’ participating in Capitol Hill siege.
