We think Bobby Jindal is a disgrace and brings much shame to the Indian-American community.
And shame to Louisiana as well, the unfortunate U.S. state of which Bobby will soon be its next Governor.
Of course, many Desis in the U.S. will disagree. They are pleased as punch that Bobby will become the first Indian-American Governor of a state in the U.S.
Born on June 10, 1971 in Baton Rouge to Hindu parents from India, Piyush “Bobby” Jindal converted to Christianity (the Catholic faith to be precise).
Bobby Jindal – A Disgrace
On Saturday, Bobby Jindal won Louisiana’s gubernatorial election in an open primary with 53.91% of the votes.
Bobby will become the state’s first non-White Governor in 130 years when in January he moves into the Governor’s mansion in Baton Rouge, the capital of Louisiana, after he takes office in January.
Bobby Jindal’s victory is a tragedy for many reasons.
A tragedy for women most of all because Bobby has made his position on abortion clear in no uncertain terms.
Bobby is opposed to abortion without exception. What does that mean? This means even if the woman’s health is at risk or the pregnancy was caused by rape or incest, Bobby would not condone abortion.
Politicians like Bobby Jindal set back the hard-won victories that women in the U.S. have gained over several decades.
Bobby’s position on abortion is extremist even within the right-wing Republican Party of which he is an obedient foot soldier.
Bobby Jindal made his right-wing extremist views on abortion clear in an interview with his home town newspaper The Times Picayune in September 2003:
“I am 100 percent anti-abortion with no exceptions. I believe all life is precious.”
Bobby is also opposed to hate crime laws, which mandate stiffer penalties for crimes motivated by hatred toward a particular person or group based on race, age, gender, religion or sexual orientation.
Bobby wants hate crime laws to be repealed. Victims of hate crimes are usually Blacks, Latinos, immigrants and women.
On the never-ending disastrous war in Iraq and extending the tax cuts for the wealthy, Bobby Jindal is in bed with George W.Bush as evidenced by Bobby’s voting record in Congress.
On the crucial prescription drug issue, Bobby voted No (in line with his Republican Party) to allowing the government to negotiate directly with drugmakers for lower prescription drug prices for individuals using Medicare, according to the Washington Post.
But that’s not all.
Consider Bobby’s views on Intelligent Design, the juvenile notion of Christian fundamentalists which essentially argues that Darwin’s theory of Evolution is wrong.
In a profile of Bobby Jindal, the New York Times wrote on October 19, 2007:
He is a born-again Roman Catholic who has suggested that teaching intelligent design as an alternative to evolution may not be out of place in public schools, favors a ban on abortion and opposes hate-crimes laws.
On all the critical issues facing the United States or his home state Louisiana, Bobby Jindal’s positions are deeply flawed, affronts to the disadvantaged sections of society and inimical to the long-term interests of the people.
Of course, there will always be people who argue that Bobby Jindal is a brilliant fellow and that America’s poorest, unhealthiest, least educated and most corrupt state Louisiana needs someone like Bobby to fix things. That’s an argument that does not wash with us. It’s like saying Mussolini made the trains run on time and that Hitler revitalized the German economy.
After he narrowly lost to Democrat Kathleen Blanco in the Governor’s election in 2003, Bobby turned his sights toward Congress.
Bobby Jindal currently serves as a U.S. Congressman for the First District of Louisiana. He was elected to Congress in 2004 and re-elected to a second term in November 2006.
Blanco did not run for re-election after her pathetic record following the KatrinaÂ hurricane disaster in New Orleans and surrounding areas.
Bobby attended Brown University where he graduated with honors in both biology and public policy and then as a Rhodes Scholar went to Oxford University for his graduate degree in 1994.
In 1996, Bobby was appointed Secretary of Louisiana’s Department of Health and Hospitals and three years later appointed President of the University of Louisiana System.
President George W.Bush named Bobby Jindal Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation of Health and Human Services in 2001, from which post he resigned two years later to run for Governor of Louisiana.
Bobby Jindal is married to Supriya and is the father of three young children.
I disagree with abortion but that doesnt mean that i will hire someone to kill an abortion doctor or shoot a church usher who practices that (remember the indecent in Wisconsin).of course adoption is always the safest route (ironically how some pro abortion people claim that in order to save the mother you must kill another)!
1. It’s often the Catholic nut-cases who can’t resist a toss in the hay and first struggle with the bulging belly and years later struggle with the fact of having given the baby up for adoption. Look around and you’ll see these weirdos. Ends badly for all parties concerned. 🙁
We’re for free and unfettered right to abortion.
Unfortunately, with the ReThuglican whackos’ majority in the House we’re likely to see more restrictions on abortion.
2. BTW, this clown Bobby Jindal produced his birth certificate the other day. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/05/07/bobby-jindal-birth-certificate-_n_858975.html
i agree that no good ever comes out of these things, but they’re not ALL catholic,most of the anti abortion people i knew were protestant. anyway it’s not about religion,it’s about humanitarianism,which is like religion without the pews.
When it comes to abortion, Catholics are more stubborn in their attitude despite the all round pain it results in.
Hell, the current ex-Nazi (really) Pope thinks condoms aggravate AIDS.
im not experienced with condoms(only used them once or twice) so im not going to debate with you on that last part.
Of course any sane person would tell you that it does the opposite
You write: Of course any sane person would tell you that it does the opposite
Try telling it to that idiot Benedict.
Apparently the pope doesnt have his own personal email adrdess,so if anyone wanted to say that to him,he would have to email one of his staff which i dont have time to do.
If you want comedy on this issue,watch the family guy episode “Prick up Your Ears“.
Will try to watch it.
FIRST OF ALL, this whole post just goes to show how lazy and uneducated some indians can be.
JINDAL IS DEFINATELY NOT OPPOSED TO ABORTION IF the mother’s life is endangered or if she is a rape victim.
If she is a victim of rape then he clearly believes that its her choice.
ANYONE WITH A BRAIN CAN SEE WHY HE’D BE AGAINST ABORTIONS. Do you even know how many teenagers are engaging in unprotected sex?! Are you even aware of the numbers of abortions that take place each year!
I’m pretty sure that at least HALF of those teenagers that have abortions aren’t rape victims. Many are just stupid teens that aren’t willing to take up the responsibility of having a baby.
I SAY IF YOUR OLD ENOUGH TO HAVE SEX, YOUR OLD ENOUGH TO RAISE A KID.
BY THE WAY, it’s not just Catholics against abortions. There are PLENTY of hindus, jews, muslims WHO ARE ALSO AGAINST THE IDEAL.
FINALLY, BY NO MEANS does anyone have the right to discriminate the POPE, because as one can obviously tell NO ONE IS FUCKING PERFECT. THE POPE ISN’t GOD, HE’s JUST A FIGUREHEAD. THERE ARE PLENTY OF OTHER RELIGIOUS LEADERS THAT CAN MAKE JUST AS MANY MISTAKES. SO NO NEED TO JUDGE YOU UNSOPHISTICATED PIECES OF TRASH. GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT AND STOP THE UNJUSTIFIED HATE.
1. You write: FIRST OF ALL, this whole post just goes to show how lazy and uneducated some indians can be.
One of the biggest disasters, a Himalayan tragedy, of our times is that your parents did not go in for an abortion.
If they’d been wise enough to do that, a brain-dead, comatose cow like you who can’t spell, who doesn’t know and/or can’t understand the facts, who appears to be a fundamentalist anti-abortion nut and perhaps a Catholic rabid cur would not have been born to foul up the Earth.
BTW, dickhead get a good dictionary so that we don’t have to endure words like DEFINATELY. And you dare call us “uneducated Indians.”
2. You write: JINDAL IS DEFINATELY NOT OPPOSED TO ABORTION IF the mother’s life is endangered or if she is a rape victim.
Bobby Jindal has always made it clear that he’s opposed to abortion even in the case of rape or if the woman’s life is at risk.
Your above link says that too:
Your own link says that Jindal is opposed to any exception.
But after saying he opposes the exceptions (in your link and we hope it’s accurate), Bobby equivocates, presumably for the sake of a few votes from the fence-sitters. Well, that would be beyond the comprehension of a stupid cow like you.
Also, if you read carefully, Bobby Jindal says in your link:
That’s not the same as saying he supports performing an abortion to save the woman’s life.
But then you’re too much of an idiot to comprehend the difference!
Your link also says:
What the f*ck is that nonsense.
A woman who is raped is already traumatized and the hospital’s job is to render all assistance including offering her on their own the use of emergency-room contraception and not wait for the hapless woman to ask for it.
Bobby Jindal is a sick f*ck and a National Disgrace. If American voters had any brains, they’d kick this ass*ole out of the Governor’s mansion in Baton Rouge.

What’s your f*cking problem if two or three or even five engage in unprotected sex or an orgy.
It’s their business and their business alone as long as they’re doing it of their free will.
None of your f*cking business, ours or anybody’s except those doing the screwing and those getting screwed. 😉
No reason why you should shove your dick or twat into other people’s business.
4. You write: Do you even know how many teenagers are engaging in unprotected sex?!
Who gives a f*ck!
We have better things to do in life (like watching stupid Bollywood and Kollywood films and violent Korean movies) than to worry our heads over such stupid statistics like how many teenagers are engaging in unprotected sex, how many are using ribbed condoms, how many are using IUDs, how many are using flavored condoms etc.
5. You write: Are you even aware of the numbers of abortions that take place each year!
See our answer to point 4 (above).
Whether the number of abortions is 1, 10,000 or 1 million, it’s all the same to us.
We don’t care a fig about the numbers.
All we care is that abortion should be legal and easily available. We’d even go so far as to say Abortion must be enshrined in all constitutions as a Fundamental Right so that stupid cows like you can’t make life miserable for others.
6. You write: I’m pretty sure that at least HALF of those teenagers that have abortions aren’t rape victims.
A stupid cow like you will be sure of everything except the vacuum in that appendage you mistakenly call your head.
Even if we accept your statistic ‘that at least HALF of those teenagers that have abortions aren’t rape victims” is correct, so what?
How does it matter whether teenagers having abortion are rape victims (the police, prosecutors and judges are paid to worry about it) or whether pregnancy was the accidental result of a toss in the hay that happened in the heat of the moment.
It’s not your business and certainly not our business.
All that matters is that Abortion should be a fundamental right.
Life does not begin at conception. A baby is human only after it’s born. Until then it’s a fetus that can be aborted at any stage as long as it’s safe for the mother.
7. You write: I SAY IF YOUR OLD ENOUGH TO HAVE SEX, YOUR OLD ENOUGH TO RAISE A KID.
Who gave you permission to say anything about others.
Get back to your corner, you stinking cur.
It’s none of your business as to who should raise a kid.
As we’ve repeatedly said, it’s not for you, not for us, not for society and certainly not for the state to intrude into others’ personal space unless there’s a risk to life or property.
8. You write: BY THE WAY, it’s not just Catholics against abortions. There are PLENTY of hindus, jews, muslims WHO ARE ALSO AGAINST THE IDEAL.
Who gives a f*ck what Christians, Hindus, Muslims and Jews think about abortion!
Anyone who believes in God in a world teeming with injustice should have her/his head examined ASAP. If you’d shown any evidence of having a head, we’d have suggested an examination. 🙁
Stupid cow, by the way it’s not IDEAL (as you write above) but idea in the above context. If Abortion was an Ideal, then you’d have supported it. Bet you have no idea what we’re talking about here.
You ignorant, babbling schmuck, first learn the difference between Ideal and idea and then come back here.
This is a forum for rational adults, not for sniveling comatose little twits desperate to interfere into others business.

Several Popes have sired bastards.
Some Popes are even believed to have slept with their daughters (yes, we’re talking of the priapic whacko nut-case Popes Alexander VI and Sergius III).
Wait, there’s worse.
Here’s a list of sexually active Popes, according to Wiki. Enjoy. 😉
Some dickhead Popes even had male lovers. Just imagine the sight – Dickhead Popes sucking the dickheads of their lovers and buggering and getting buggered. Sounds like fun, eh?
Some of the sickest of the sick f*cks have been Popes. Source: http://one-evil.org/
Natürlich, Popes are not Gods. In any case, there’s no such thing as a God in the first place, you dopehead.
Oh, we almost forgot this gem:
Your current Nazi Pope Benedict XVI thinks Condoms aggravates AIDS. Ha ha ha.
Where do you pick these putzhead Popes from?
Finally, if it makes you happy we have no hesitation in saying that several leaders of other religious communities be they Hindus, Muslims or of other faiths are equally stupid and no less venal.

thank you, alpha.. haven’t seen SI unleash Ezekiel 25:17 on dumb mofos in a long time.
Hoping to see more of the old SI.
That thing asked for it. 😉
Exactly முனிAndy … Special thanks to Alpha for bringing SI back from hibernation…
Brings back memories of SI ripping apart Ajith and Kamal’s fanboys……………..
BTW, is Abortion an issue at all in India?
SI – You should have probably held back a little and let Alpha respond and then kept the assault going. 😉
You have aborted potential entertainer in future posts. You must have heard of limited warfare 🙂
Alpha looks more like a hit and run operator.
Unlikely to return any time soon. 😉
In future please bleed them rather than striking one big blow.
Who knows, maybe it’ll come back and be surprised to see fans thanking it. 😉
Facebook fans have only ‘Like’ but on SI people are ‘Thanking’ it.
@ SI: BTW, is Abortion an issue at all in India?
The fact that Indians breed like mosquitoes, it shouldn’t be much of a problem.
The issues concerning Abortion haven’t hogged the limelight till now, except a few like this
Not sure if we’d read about the Nikita case earlier.
I believe abortion is an issue in india in a different sense. Abortion in general is still a no-no as long as the baby is a boy. In the extremely conservative circles abortion is encouraged if the baby is a girl.
I believe there is a law against disclosure of child gender before birth. I am not sure how rigorously it is enforced.
Yes, it looks like Abortion is used more for sex de-selection in India.
That does it!
I’m cutting my cable line and throwing out the tv for good!
SI is the ONLY source of entertainment i need for the rest of my life
You’ll agree she/he/it
askedbegged for it.
Now, all the All-Life-is-Precious whackos will be after us.
if i remember correctly, Ayn rand was a supporter of pro-choice …not going to get into this debate but just for everyone’s info
We were unaware of this aspect of her persona.
When we think of Ayn Rand, we think not of Howard Roarke or John Galt but for some reason to those final pages in her lesser work We the Living. We found the ending so tragic.
i read some of the Wikipedia pages on the poopes (yes i spelled it that way on purpose because that’s what they are),I wonder if those poopes oops popes had any idea that many years later, people like us would be demeaning them on SI???
The Popes were far too busy banging their daughters to worry about such mundane matters like getting demeaned on SI.
Pope Sergius III was said to have an unusual fondness for his daughter Marozia.
According to peter gilmore,high priest of the Church of Satan”Yeah, it is life. Sperms and eggs are alive, they’re organic, you can’t say that is not life. But what I think you’re looking for is the idea that Christians wants to say from conception. If people want to have abortions it really doesn’t bother me, I just think they really should be more responsible. It just makes more sense. Contraception is easy!
“Not necessarily, it’s just a piece of tissue and most human life doesn’t really have that much value on a grand scale. In the universe, individual life is practically meaningless, it’s sort of like droplets in a wave that crashes against a rock. Who cares about the droplets? The way life works is it is making large amounts of species of whatever it is, and it keeps moving biologically. I would just think that if it was myself as the fetus, I have a potential to become the person that I am. I wouldn’t want to be snuffed out”.
1. We do not believe Sperms, Eggs or the Embryos/Fetuses are human and subject to human treatment laws.
2. Peter Gilmore’s below point is something we concur with:
