Social Media Dentists and the Knock Off Obama

5 Nov

You know bad days are coming when someone stops putting in an effort and start ripping/copying stuff from other people. Think of it this way, how sad is it when you see Sahir Lodhi desperately trying to copy Shahrukh Khan and how pathetic he comes off as a person. Now in place of Sahir Lodhi consider PTI and in place of Shah Rukh Khan think of the Obama campaign. For months PTI has been copying Obama’s campaign like a playbook and people have let that pass because well PTI gets away with things other parties cannot because they have a troll army and others do not.

What the Obama campaign did over a month ago

But with this latest copy paste of the Obama Campaign’s http://www.romneytaxplan.com/ Initiative, as the http://www.thepmlnvision.com/ it is now just sad to see the direction PTI Is taking. For months they have managed to somehow delay elections within their party while continuously asking everyone else to have them. This party still does not have a list of candidates and has seen massive defections in the party. But even then, PTI had the audacity to put up three 60 year olds on an elevated stage in hall in Lahore to talk about how Youth matters in the political landscape of Pakistan. Initially this glaring hypocrisy made people angry at how PTI refuses to see what it has become but now it is just sad. Like a Chinese knock off, PTI is now showing exposing its wear and tear.

North Waziristan Operation: Cut the Narrative Crap

19 Oct

If you were to go through the columns in the English Newspapers today you would notice something very interesting. There is a slow move going on that is finally starting to show and turn in to a pattern. And now that the pattern is emerging it is clear that our overlords are at it again, this time they are pushing a narrative that is going to help them create a consensus eventually on a military operation in North Waziristan.

Thing is all of us by now, apart from those who follow a certain political leader, agree that Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan needs to be taken care of and eliminated. They have slaughtered close to 40,000 citizens of Pakistan in the last 5 to 7 years. So to the question of should our authorities take on the TTP, the answer is a resounding yes because any group that kills 40,000 of our people needs to be wiped out. That is crystal clear and there are no doubts about that (This does not apply to the followers of a certain leader). Continue reading

The Bakery, The CM and Social Media

18 Oct

Recently Social Media has been on fire about the Bakery Incident that involved CM Punjab’s daughter’s security in an altercation with Bakery Staff. The story came up in a very planned manner with a video ‘leaking’ on Vimeo and then being spread through a very specific group of people till it eventually went viral. And after it did what followed was the very similar hue and cry of our social media and mainstream media about how the powerful can get away with anything and how law and order is going to hell in Punjab. It got to a point where some people started saying things like Punjab was being treated like private property of the CM where his kids get to play and do whatever they like. Continue reading

Drones Are Bad But So Are The Taliban

17 Oct

Drones are bad and so is the act of killing innocent people. You would think that this would be something that everyone could agree on and just simply move on. But for some reason, we the people have been stuck arguing this for over a year now. For purely political purposes one specific party has hijacked this debate and changed the equation in to if you are against TTP you obviously support the drones. Again at this point a logical person would think wait how did we get to that conclusion but somehow that is the ongoing narrative. Continue reading
