Similarities between Trump and Modi

Post by confuzzled dude on Mon Sep 04, 2017 8:52 pm

1. Monumental ego
2. Demand of loyalty
3. Demagogy
4. Coarse and crassly vulgar
5. Spread group hate with abandon.
6. Exclusivist ideologues owning a narrow world view and a narrow concept of nationalism
7. Insecure  
8. Egotism
9. No specifics about their programme
10. Flamboyance in style and escapist vagueness on substance

Modi is successful as the PM. Trump is struggling both nationally and internationally.

There is no comparison.

However, there are comparisons between Jagan and Maran - both used family links to make money and the are corrupt.

Successful by which account? Jobs, gdp, exports or manufacturing/production? Aimless globetrotting doesn't count

You didn't comment on Jagan and Maran. 

No one (including CONmen) expected China to include Paki terrorist groups in the BRICS declaration. That and China backing off in the Bhutan row show that Modi is doing fine. Trump is unable to convince China on N Korea......

The best time to assess Modi's performance is 2019. If he gets re-elected and BJP gets a clear majority, his second term will help Soonya and her son decide on their future. Meanwhile, your friend Pappu is giving an expert lecture on artificial intelligence in the US. Let us see how many people will show up for it.

These are the writer's opinions with no backing whatsoever. The language itself is like he is egoist, he is xyz, he is abc without justifying through adequate situations, events & responses of Modi and Trump to get such a comparison. It shows the substandard journalism that Hindu and Frontline had degraded to just to uphold their failed leftist ideology. Only an outright idiot or total novice will fall for this.

China's backing off has got more to do with North Korea's shenanigans than India's tactics. Don't be fooled; vApuni Balupani confuse avvakandi. Any which way you look, Modi has been a big failure.

I see one similarity with Obummer and President Trump. Both got elected because the electorate was fed up with the previous regime. There is also a difference between the two in that Obummer is smooth talking whereas President Trump is not.

Another similarity
MoS Home Kiren Rijiju has said India wants to deport all illegal immigrants even those with UNHCR papers because...

1. Immigrants are susceptible to recruitment by "terror" groups

2. They "not only infringe on rights of Indian citizens but also pose grave security challenges"

3. Influx of migrants also leads to social, political and cultural problems

4. The idea to "ensure the demographic pattern of India is not disturbed"

The author of the Frontline article is extremely dishonest. He would have at least some credibility if he compared Modi with Erdogan. But of course he won't do that with an Islamist leader. So he tries to stretch the facts and make them fit his narrative.

Unfortunately, Sharmila is an expert only on Paramarsa. So, she goes and does paamarsa and then Jagan does odarpu. This way, the cameras capture more crying during the paramarsa and then Jagan's "healing" words pf odarpu. Soonya and Pappu can learn from the two......

 You are the one on this forum who, every day or other, wakes up to the hysteria of Modi this, Modi that, all hell is by and of Modi's working/non-working and so on. And then come up with arguments and writings that link 'mOkAlu' with 'bOdi gundu'. You are not even capable of establishing correlation, leave alone causation but claim great inferences with such banal perspectives. So all we can do is sympathize with you and hope you get help. You are not even open enough to take such sympathies from anyone else other than those offered as OdArpu by Mr. Jagga Reddy. Hence my comment. How is this Guruvinda Ginja? Or were you taught in Pastoral telugu?

I never commented on Rahul Gandhi either, is he a Reddy too? Last I checked he is a quarter Brahmin. Like him Jagan is nobody; why would I expend my energies on them? I will criticize them when they're in power. Only two characters on this board show loyalty towards their tribe, I'm not one of them. Don't fall into that nonsense.

Re: Similarities between Trump and Modi

That is the debate now in India after it was discovered that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a hugely popular but divisive figure, was following the Twitter feed of a man who wrote the following this week, after a female journalist was shot to death: “One bitch dies a dog’s death all the puppies cry in the same tune.”

Many Indians were bothered by that message, then doubly disturbed to learn that the writer, Nikhil Dadhich, a prolific tweeter who describes himself as a “Hindu nationalist,” was among the 1,779 accounts their prime minister was following.

“The prime minister shouldn’t be doing that. He’s giving legitimacy to filth,” said Sai Krishna, a medical student in southern India who heard about the nasty message after the journalist, Gauri Lankesh, was killed Tuesday. The police have few leads, but many analysts said they believed the killing was an assassination.
His political party, the Bharatiya Janata Party (commonly referred to as the B.J.P.), is frequently accused of operating what detractors call a troll army — a group of bloggers who quickly swarm online anyone seen as critical of the party. Mr. Modi is following some of these people and in doing so, Mr. Krishna, the medical student, said, was acting “like a passive troll.”

Some of the accounts Mr. Modi follows on Twitter have made misogynistic comments, spread anti-Muslim feelings and dangerous rumors, or made remarks that do not always jibe with his message of tolerance. One account he follows suggested dropping an atomic bomb on Pakistan. The same account called a prominent female journalist a prostitute.

Comrade, how is this a similarity?


President Trump has even more followers than Mr. Modi — 37.8 million — but follows a scant 45 accounts, many from his own properties. Somehow Katrina Campins, a real estate executive he fired in the first season of his former reality TV show, “The Apprentice,” made the cut this time.

President Trump has even more followers than Mr. Modi — 37.8 million — but follows a scant 45 accounts, many from his own properties. Somehow Katrina Campins, a real estate executive he fired in the first season of his former reality TV show, “The Apprentice,” made the cut this time.
Why are you asking me? you are the one who highlighted that excerpt not me.

Comrade,  what is your subject line?
You posted this link and the only connection I could find between Modi and Trump in your link was this. So once again, how is this a similarity?

You're the one who highlighted the above excerpt not me. I highlighted the pieces that I thought are relevant and the source of those excerpts.

And how do the excerpts you highlighted show any similarities, Comrade?

Sigh.... One follows a self-described Hindu Nationalist and hate-mongering handles on twitter and the other thinks White Supremacists are fine people.

Trump is a maverick, an egomaniac really interested only in himself, whereas Modi is interested, of course in himself, he is an enormously vain man too, but he is interested in consolidating his party [BJP] and his philosophy’s control over India. He would like to leave a positive legacy behind. It’s unlikely that he will, but he likes to think of himself as a man of history. And he’s building upon this very well-entrenched, very motivated, and very dangerous RSS organization, which Trump certainly doesn’t have and [French leader of the National Front] Le Pen certainly doesn’t have and [Hungary’s] Viktor Orbán doesn’t have. In that sense, Modi has the capacity to do a great deal more damage because of the organizational depth of the RSS and the BJP.

Guha, apt to his name, has the intellect and insight of a cave dweller. Anything not part of his 'cave ecosystem' frightens him into thinking that it is out to get him. If such thought process merits recognition as 'scholarly or intellectual' at all - is the very fight going on in JNU like Universities.

Funny! You bring twitter tweets to your side to blame Modi.

One twitter handle claimed he won popular vote in 2016 US election and his millions of followers agreed. Did they? I follow Trump to keep finding the asshole he is. Not everyone agrees to who they follow on twitter.

You! here post one tweet from some arbit guy to blame Modi Smile Funny, isn't it.

Carry on with your conflicting arguments and keep deceiving yourself; nobody is going to stop you. A right-wing nutcase is a nutcase no matter what part of the world/culture he hails from. Both Modi & Trump, by their actions thus far, proved that they're birds of a feather.

Awww...

No references or tweets in response? Why CD? Why?

I love this nonsensical phrase with no relevance to tweets, "Carry on with your conflicting arguments and keep deceiving yourself." Smile

On leaders of today, Shourie said, “Just believe I’m talking about (US President) Donald Trump. Any resemblance closer home is your imagination.”
