Well. Holy shit.
The Times of India put it well today:
” Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau’s visit was a disaster that has little parallel in India’s recent diplomatic history “
They’re calling for a ‘reset’ in the relationship. You know, like after a divorce.
To be impartial, here are 2 good summaries from the respectably lefty Washington Post:
Justin Trudeau’s India troubles are rooted in Canadian minority politics
Trudeau’s India trip is a total disaster — and he has only himself to blame
They’re angry here. I took down a post I blogged last night quoting an Indian anonymously from my WhatsApp group because it was inflammatory. They’re specially angry because it insults their intelligence and came across as patronizing, as well as complete insensitivity to their primary political issues.
A reminder. Here’s an IQ distribution chart:
So (1.324B * .0214) India has almost as many people with an IQ of 148 (or greater) as the whole population of Canada.
So running afoul of that is extremely easy if you’re a very dim bulb, or a progressive. But I repeat myself.
I don’t blame this idiot completely. He’s not calling the shots
