Skip to comments.India bans Book by University of Chicago 'scholar' Wendy Doniger.

Wendy Doniger, a 'Hindu Scholar' at the University of Chicago, has had her book banned, or interrupted, by Indian authorities because it denigrates the Hindu religion.
This is a long article and I am still reading it myself, but, having been a UofChicago Student myself in a previous life, I had to go to a 'meet the faculty' dinner and listen to this woman speak; in which, she spent two hours talking about the sexual practices of a village in India she visited. This, I guess, gives her as a UofChicago demigod the capacity to speak for the entire Hindu congregation. I found myself daydreaming all the time of pancakes on bunnies' heads.
As a Marxist, Doniger reduces all of Hindu mythology to a Marxist and homosexual interpretation. She has spawned now two generations of Hindu studies professors at universities who share her deconstructionist view of the world's oldest religion.
And now Real Indian Hindus are mad as hell and are speaking out. Maybe because now the West has abandoned its own moral credibility.

My original whiff of this came from this Chicago Tribune story. They seemed, as always, to be holding back most of their facts.
Thanks for the insight.
Another useless eater commie (lesbian?) with a very high paying gig. She’s got her story and she is sticking to it because it pays so well
She’s a clone of Mooooooochelle who was also paid by U of Chicago for doing nothing useful. To the tune of 350 thousand a year
..... and Michelle Obama was paid $316,962 to handle community affairs for the University of Chicago Medical Center. - See more at: http://cnsnews.com/news/article/obama-why-michelle-was-working-mom-316k-year-we-didnt-have-luxury-her-not-work#sthash.LPv5uT51.dpuf
Well, peaceful relative to Islam, I should say.
The devil has begun to spread his hate beyond Judeo-Christianity to anything that even has a suggestion of a peaceful divine touch. I’m not equating the faith systems by any means, and frankly champion God from a Christian perspective, but a certain overlap of principles is an observation that C. S. Lewis made. The bible may have presaged this in its prophecy of the one world government that would be exalted over “God, or anything that is worshiped as God.” And bad-mouthing the latter would be the opening salvos, I figure.
In an earlier day this would have been called farce because there would be nothing else to say.
Maybe there ARE villages in India in which the practice has devolved into sexual obsession... I never say that it could never be, to anything strange... but to characterize the whole bloomin’ Hindu faith system that way is something that not even the most ardent Christian evangelist would ever do. Sounds much more like she has a profane axe to grind, and finds the “exotic” setting a convenient excuse to do it.
In the end leftists piss all over 3rd world cultures due to them being too traditional. As in thinking gay marriage is the most absurd thing they ever heard of. Another reason to hate Euro and American style globalism
It’s a peculiarly Western rot.
One could “blame” Judeo-Christianity for making it possible, but again does one really blame the castle-builders for barbarians moving into castles and trashing them? The better something is, the worse the thing that it can be made into via perversion.
Here’s a thread discussing this situation from the New York Times’ perspective.
Follow the money trail. I’ll wager there’s a Saudi Wahabist prince, somewhere along the line, with too much money on his hands, fueling American academia for propaganda to use in their hot and cold wars on the Indian sub-continent.
I did not take her classes at U of C, but she was still considered a celebrity professor when I was there - largely because of her obsession with "gender."
At the same time, banning her books is a stupid, stupid thing to do.
If India is going to be considered a legitimate modern republic, it can't go around banning books.
Is there no one in India who is able to refute her work? Really?
Now there's a surprise !
btw, first post = good job
Does anyone remember the “HUGH, Series Discoveries” of Margaret Mead in what was announced as a work of sociological breakthrough? Remember “Coming of Age in Samoa”? ? ?
Admit it - we all had it forced on us by a professor or a believing friend, neighbor, whatever. It was sold more widely than hotcakes, caused fat deposition between the ears, and eventually left the bad taste in ones mouth that Liberal excess is wont to do.
Turns out the locals told the “social scientist” what they thought she would believe and they played her credulity for all it was worth.
Now, we have a pervert at the central school of communism blathering about sex once again.
Let me guess; is it another case of truth being called denigration?
Those mired in decadence cannot comprehend what decadence is. There is nothing moral about it. There is nothing good about it. It is abject failure, nothing more.
Decadents imagine themselves to be all sorts of things: morally superior, intellectually superior, sophisticated--many things.
What they cannot comprehend is that they are none of these things.
They are mired in decadence, groupthink, and a cultural downward-spiral and are morally and intellectually inferior to those who have gone before them. This they simply cannot imagine.
The true criticism of benevolent Western decadents is the same: a failure of imagination and comprehension.
Wendy D is a gender feminist pervert idiot. She doesn’t translate, she just pretends to translate changing the meaning with her perverted sick world view.
I’ve read hertranslation (well, started to, couldn’t finish because it was so bad) Manu Samhita and it was so bad I threw it away. I’ve read a good translation so I know the difference. Look at the info about her above.
Why shouldn’t India ban her books if they want to? If being considered a “legitimate modern republic” means the toilet and sewer culture we have in the US, why would they want that?
Totally agree, you read my mind. It’s part of the agenda to destroy anything which might stand in the way of the eventual “one world church” and then easily control the members into the forced worship of the antichrist. Apparently Islam is being saved for last because when you push muslims, they push back. Or rather, they often push first, so you don’t push them.
