Mahatma Gandhi Was a Fool, Not A Hero


MAHATMA GANDHI: SAINT, HERO, WEIRDO




Mahatma


He urged the British to surrender, and suggested that the Czechs and even the Jews would have been better off committing heroic mass suicide.
Even as late as June 1946, when the extent of the Holocaust had emerged, Gandhi told biographer Louis Fisher: “The Jews should have offered themselves to the butcher’s knife. They should have thrown themselves into the sea from cliffs.”
Gandhi’s funny sex ideas
When Gandhi was 16, he was having sex with his wife at the very moment his father died. The trauma seems to have led him to develop some odd ideas about sex. He thought married couples should only have sex three or four times … in total. In fact, Gandhi credited his spiritual powers to his ability to avoid ejaculation, and one morning he flipped out on discovering that he’d had a nocturnal emission.
Gandhi also had an unusual way of testing his celibacy. As an old man, he would ask the local hotties to spend the night lying naked beside him. His wife was no longer temptation enough, apparently, and he described her as looking like a “meek cow.”


(Pastorius note: It's funny that he would disparagingly refer to his wife this way, considering he wanted all of us to live like meek cows. I fucking hate Gandhi. I would kill him if he were alive today.)
Gandhi, family man
Gandhi’s opposition to modern technology, including modern medicine, took odds turns. He didn’t want his wife to take life-saving penicillin, because it would be administered with a hypodermic needle. He did, however, allow himself to be treated with quinine and even to be operated on for appendicitis.
He refused to allow his sons to get a formal education, and also tried to force his oddball sexual ideas on them. He so disapproved of the wife of his eldest son that the Mahatma disowned him. This son broke from the family and became an alcoholic. In rebellion against everything his father stood for, Harilal Gandhi even announced at one point that he had converted to Islam.
The Mahatma also had trouble with his second son, Manilal, who had an affair with a married woman. Dad made the matter a public scandal and pushed the woman involved to shave her head. Manilal was also briefly exiled from the family for lending money to fellow black sheep Harilal.
Gandhi and the bathroom
In the movie, Gandhi is seen fighting with his wife over her refusal to clean the latrine in the ashram.
This just scratches the surface of the one of the strangest elements of the Mahatma’s makeup … a fixation on bodily excretions that he pushed whenever he could on his family and disciples.
Gandhi seemed to be almost as interested in Indian sanitation as he was in Indian freedom. At his ashram, he designed latrines and ran latrine drills. “The bathroom is a temple,” he once said. “It should be so clean and inviting that anyone would enjoy eating there.”
Gandhi also took a great deal of interest in the bowel movements of his friends, and life at the ashram was marked by daily enemas. He also experimented with diet, to see what effect different types of food had on excretions.
Weirdest of all, it seems he also made a habit of drinking his own urine.

Gandhi always reminds me of Yoda in a diaper, which will give you a pretty good idea of my opinion of both Gandhi and Yoda.

From what I read, Gandhi used to greet his followers every morning by asking if they'd had a good bowel movement. I feel cheated that we didn't get a scene of Yoda doing that with the "younglings".

Ghandi also beat his wife, did not respect women's rights and would not support the brilliant Margaret Sanger's impassioned plea to condone birth control to help reduce the population and therefore poverty of India, so hell bent was he on denying human sexuality and advocating abstinence!

Yep, it's all perspective. As a woman, I think he was a huge sexist.

Pastorius said...

American Rose,
I'm not a fan of Margaret Sanger either, but I agree with you that Gandhi was a misogynist.

American Rose said...

I'm curious, why are not a fan?

Pastorius said...

Because she was a racist eugenicist:

Ghandi was a pissant.

Epaminondas said...

Gandi was simply FORTUNATE that his target could comprehend the lesson of conscience he outwardly projected upon them as the main weapon.

If Britain has been teutonic, we wouldn't even know his name. He would never have gotten out of South Africa having died there in prison, unknown, and early.

However, ipso facto, he is no pissant in this universe, having provided the yardstick and method for attacking the western democratic mind.

Pastorius said...

Well put, Epa.

And, the reason I post things like this against Gandhi is because we have to grow the fuck up and stop believing the fairy stories about people like him.

What Britain was that that dealt with Ghandi?

cjk said...

What Britain? A very civilized and restrained one. Well over 90% of the rest of the world's governments would have probably just smoked him at that time and as stated above, we wouldn't even know his name.

I couldn't agree more with both comments by Epaminondas and Pastorius.

I didn't know teutonic meant very uncivilized and unrestrained one.

Given to choose ; either a Fool / Weirdo who wished to liberate his motherland (using nonviolence ways)

or stay under the Rule of the Great white Imperialists, who had spilled lots of local blood.

Decision, decision, decision. Who would the local choose?

the fool/weirdo ghandi didn't do shit about islam (the invader which have spilled lots of local blood and still does it. that's islam).

Pastorius said...

Abdoos,
He was the right fool at the right time.

As Epa said,

"Gandi was simply FORTUNATE that his target could comprehend the lesson of conscience he outwardly projected upon them as the main weapon.

You should take your time understanding the wisdom of the man instead of writing a piece on random, out of context, "facts".Gandhi never assumed himself being close to being anywhere close to being a saint, but he was a seeker of Truth, and one with an outstanding courage to act upon his understanding of it.

Pastorius said...

Dumbass, his treatment of his wife alone shows he was a selfish son of a bitch, not a "seeker of truth."

And, by the way, he was a racist calling blacks Kufr. I'm guessing you don't know shit about Gandhi, and if you do and you still support him, then you're a dumbass racist fuckwad too.
