According to a major Indian television network, Obama said during his Indian trip that he was “glad to meet an Indian Communist” as he . . . met an Indian Communist. Here’s what he reportedly said:
I am glad to meet an Indian communist. I am told that communists have been part of the (Indian) political mainstream.
According to the NDTV report of the encounter, Indian leftists have been protesting Obama’s visit.
I can’t vouch for the veracity of this. I haven’t seen it in any mainstream Western media. But since NDTV is a serious and large Indian TV network, I share it.
Of course, the main reason to be glad to meet an Indian Communist is for the opportunity to KICK HIM IN THE ASS.
