A little background: West Bengal is a state which was rules by the Communist Party of India (Marxist) for 3 decades from 1977. It was defeated by Mamata Banerjee this time, who has also been named one of the 100 most influential people by the Time magazine.

That's her in the interview.

Just before the interview was taken, her government arrested a professor from a reputed university because he circulated a cartoon parodying her. http://ibnlive.in.com... <-- The case, if you're interested.

She's questioned over it, and then follows the worst train wreck I've ever witnessed.

Starts from 6:21

My favourite portion:

1. What is your government doing to ensure freedom of expression and speech, which is a critical issue?
MB: You're raising a issue, but it is a Maoist issue. (???) I appreciate your question. However, I love democracy, I don't love the goons or the guns.

2. Just for sharing a cartoon, our respected professors and scientists are put behind bars, what is your reaction regarding this?
MB: I love cartoons. I'm giving a hefty pension to this one cartoonist. He's the real cartoonist. It was not me, it was the police that arrested him. Because it is a cyber crime.This man is a CPM man. It is his society people that lodged a complaint. And then also, the government is SO democratic, it did nothing wrong. Otherwise, he should be behind the bars. (Um.., he is.) It is a conspiracy. A conspiracy to kill me. A murder conspiracy.

Interviewer: But the case against him was defamation, outraging the modesty of a women...

MB: No. I'll walk out if you don't let me complete. I will not allow. I know this is the maoist people that are putting up this question. And CPM cadres...

Interviewer: But what is the message you're setting up? Are you trying to give out a message that you are intolerant of dissent?

MB: THIS IS NOT. WE are tolerable people. This is a cyber crime. This man, he was a party cadre. It is a political conspiracy to MURDER me.

"You are a CPM activist and I'm not here to answer CPM-backed questions.You are a Maoist. Go back to the jungles".

Another Gem.

This should be a meme.

Oh my goodness. Just understood the context. I never posted the interview.

Massive facepalm.

Yeah this is the most confusing avatar since Reasoning took wjmelement's Rothbard pic
Beliefs in a nutshell:
- The Ends never justify the Means.
- Objectivity is secondary to subjectivity.
- The War on Drugs is the worst policy in the U.S.
- Most people worship technology as a religion.
- Computers will never become sentient.

What's up with the avatar, people?

I simply like Karl Marx. Can't we move past that and have a healthy productive interaction? I am not weird because I'm influenced by him. I SWEAR.

That has to win the award for most pointless link I have ever seen. Not relevant, not funny, not cool... just dumb.

And yet you responded to it rather than the OP. Says a lot about you, doesn't it?
