You know Indian Americans are becoming more and more mainstream when they start getting into people’s cross hairs. On the one hand you’d be happy about it but on the other if you heard the reason you wouldn’t know what to make of it. Last time an Indian created this much buzz was during the spelling bee.
Anyway call it the Glenn Beck phenomenon but anything he touches or talks about creates an instant chatter among his followers. Personally, I think Glenn Beck is the Jerry Springer of Political arena. He is a clown albeit an immensely successful clown. No matter what sane Dems and Reps may say but at the end of the day, all said and done, Glenn is not only getting the TV ratings, gracing the cover of Time, leading a crazed bunch who follow his every command, becoming a best seller of two books…phew!
So in today’s Glenn Beck show, Glenn happen to grind his axe on a certain individual by the name of Deepak Bhargava. Deepak apparently is the Executive Director of Center for Community Change. CCC is a mainstream nonprofit organization whose mission is to develop the power and capacity of low-income people, especially low-income people of color.
Is there some sort of a pattern emerging? Why is Glenn not going after those top notch corporates in Banking, Health, Insurance, Automobile who have the economy by its cojones. Instead he is concentrating on the cheapest, powerless, innocuous bunch who just want some breathing space. This is the easiest bunch to go after, being defenseless and all.
Deepak Bhargava Bio and Wiki
Deepak was born in Bangalore, India. He migrated to United States when he was a child and spend his growing up years in New York City. Deepak’s career highlight came when he got admitted to Harvard and then graduated summa cum laude from the prestigious university. At present, Deepak lives in D.C with his partner Harry Hanbury, who is a documentary filmmaker.
Yeah right, Glenn, go after those who are fighting for the down trodden. Glenn appears racist so I would like to see Glenn go after some WASP. Only then we would label Glenn as an equal opportunity clown.
