My view only based on decades of dealing with Congress on various matters. Hearings like these are essentially done for money -- campaign coffers became full. I don't think anyone's heart is in it. And I doubt if any policy will come of it. Wrong and immoral to be sure.
The Evangelical Christians, on the other hand, genuinely despise Indians in general and Hindus in particular. Reagan was instrumental in turning Pakistan into a well armed terror state and started the policy of letting India get hit.
Anyone who beleives a party reliant of Evangelical Christians is somehow favorable to India is sadly mistaken.
Agree with what you said there komalji, your point is well made.
Do you really believe that the likes of Ilhan Omar, Rep. Sherman or others who participated in the "hearings" have views that are dissimilar to Evangelists and therefore in their likelihood of -for a lack of better word- "favorableness" to India? Do you believe it's only money that's making them speak and act like this, or their real views are actually very different?
If you believe that it is fallacious to believe that "a party reliant o[n] Evangelical Christians is somehow favorable to India..", then what should one make of the party that is increasingly reliant on groups that are seemingly no different from the Evangelists in their feelings towards India and Hindus in particular. A position that they are advertising and cementing increasingly and more frequently and it's not just one or two of them.
I am not shilling for either Dems or Repubs here, I am merely asking you (and all the Indian-Americans here who may care to respond), why should we view one as different form other, when they both seem to be the two sides of the same malevolent, venomous coin.
Do we really have the choice of a lesser-evil here?
