US representative, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff, after being seen sporting a T-Shirt depicting a protrait of Subhas Chandra Bose, has been under fire for, get this, sporting a “Nazi collaborator” on his T-Shirt. The events have shown us once more how, be it the ‘Nazi collaborator’ debate or having an irrational love for illegal immigrants, there is little space for grey matter in American politics.
Nothing to see her folks, just AOC's Chief of Staff wearing a shirt featuring Nazi collaborator, Subhas Chandra Bose. pic.twitter.com/lMKXHOKxxA

Many republicans keep close watch on the new democratic leader, AOC who is hell-bent on many ridiculous leftist ideas, one being to virtually allow a free flow of illegal immigrants without enforcing any anti-immigration laws on them. We are no fans of her, but neither do we drool for republicans who have a pretty fine presence of closet white supremacists among them, along with a variety of other racist things. The republicans can also be as asinine as the democrats, if not as sinister as them. The legacy of Subhas Chandra Bose has been another one of the casualties under their exhausted collective brainpower.
Unprepared @AOC tries to come at Former ICE Director Thomas Homan.
She gets eviscerated.
It's hard to watch.
Total savage flex by Homan at the end.
AOC *literally* left speechless.
I've never see a member get more completely & embarrassingly destroyed. pic.twitter.com/F8qn5wkp2f

Quick to jump the gun, a bunch of, please excuse me, ‘Chauthi fail’ people in America have attacked Saikat Chakrabarti over the Subhas Chandra Bose T-Shirt, and in turn have offended an entire 1.3 billion free Indians who owe their freedom to Bose, an Indian revolutionary.
Bose was an Indian freedom fighter who believed in violent rebellion to free the country from the two-centuries-old British tyranny. There is strong evidence to back the fact that it was actually the threat of his Indian National Army or Azad Hind Army which led to Indian independence.
Bose banked on World War 2 to bring his people some dignity, to give them freedom. At a time when White people’s hero Churchill single-handedly caused famines that killed millions of Indians, Bose found opportunity in seeking help from the Axis powers for the Indian freedom struggle. In both the first and the second World Wars, Indian soldiers fought alongside the British, they comprised the frontlines, they were cannon fodder. In World War 1 (1914-18) Indians gave fighting for the British a shot, as they expected relief from the tyrannous rule in the name of a pay up. Mahatma Gandhi dropped the non-violence ideal for this purpose, to help the British win their wars including World War 1: the bloody trench ridden war in Europe. 1.3 million Indian men volunteered to fight for the British as the Mahatma appealed to them. Three decades later India still crippled under British rule and still paid for its exorbitant wars. Peaceful protests, civil-disobedience and non-violence had also been given an exhaustive trial. But only when this was paired with the fear of the Azad Hind Fauj that made all the difference.
Subhas Chandra Bose drew help from the enemies of his enemies, with the Axis powers, including the Germans and the Japanese all deeply drowning in the blood of mass-murders. But among the winners, Stalin is known to have killed millions. Churchill is known to have killed millions in and of that India is witness. But American President Franklin D Roosevelt led America to fight a war alongside these nations. Maybe Republicans can tell us whether Franklin D Roosevelt was a collaborator in the Bengal famines. Also, Indians never had anything against the Jews. India has been a safe place for Jews seeking asylum in their millennia-long history of persecution.
It is obvious that as America prepares for elections, such nasty poorly directed attacks will spill some dirt on completely unrelated things including India’s freedom struggle. However, We just wanted to put it out there: the stupidity of such opinions spiraling out of American politique tends to give the best of us a decent migraine.
