In the past two weeks the US has had most of the Islamic world pissed because of NEWSWEAK. The last two days – with the aid of the UK’s Sun Newspaper – the Pentagon and State Department has had to fend off more criticism due to Saddam “One Hung Low” Hussein’s skivvie pics.
And now this, the Hindu’s of India (well, at least one is) are pissed and are seeking damages for “hurting the sentiments of Hindus worldwide.“
A California brewery’s decision to withdraw a beer named after the elephant-God Ganesh from the market has not quenched the desire of Hindu activists to seek damages for “hurting the sentiments of Hindus worldwide”.
Brij Dhir, a Golden Gate University law student and attorney licensed in Mumbai, says he is going ahead with his class action lawsuit seeking $1 billion to compensate Hindus worldwide for the “emotional distress” they have suffered.
Dhir’s ire was roused by Lost Coast Brewery’s Indica India Pale Ale named after Ganesh. The label depicts Ganesh holding a beer in one of his four hands, and another in his trunk.
“Withdrawing the beer is not a mitigating gesture,” Dhir said.
“We want to go ahead with this case and create a precedent for future generations, so that Hindu symbols and Gods are not insulted in this manner.”
One billion dollars! Where do I start with this one? Mr. Dhir and his shyster must truely believe in this Hindu God. Ganesh is the Lord of success and destroyer of evils and obstacles. He is also worshipped as the god of education, knowledge, wisdom and wealth.
Dhir might be an Indian by heritage, but he is the proverbial “All American Boy” when it comes to scamming the US judicial system in search of “success” and “wealth.” And the sad part is, if this ends up being heard in the 9th district circuit court they have an even chance to win. Those moonbats in robes that run that place agree with almost anything.
I suggest the defendants shyster point out Ganesh’s normal appearence as a defense ploy. Generally Genesh is described as having an elephantine countenance with a curved trunk and big ears, and a huge pot-bellied body of a human being. And he rides on a mouse!
If an elephant riding on the back of a mouse doesn’t hurt the “sentiments of Hindus worldwide” I doubt a six pack of beer will either.
Where will it all end? Now that the Quran is being flushed all over America and beer is being recalled over a mouse riding elephant what’s next on the piss off the world agenda?
Will the Kabbalah Center be next on the desecration hit list? If so will it spawn a mass protest by Madonna, Naomi Campbell, Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Demi Moore and Monica Lewinski? (Who was quoted as saying the cult was “stimulating my mental brain”) Will they all gather enmass for a 3.5 million Kabbalian moonbat march on Washington D.C., prominently wearing their “red string bracelets,” as protection from the evil Bushies and their stormtroopers, the Capital Police?
The world wonders and waits for the next “desecration.” And a billion dollar settlement.
