Vidya's vitriolics

Begs the question: what is Vidya's core competence?
The Hindu : Opinion / Leader Page Articles : The BJP’s battle with the big idea
The BJP’s core competence was minority-bashing and as much would be proved by the Kandhamal attacks and Varun Gandhi’s poisonous speeches.

In the end, the BJP’s inability to shed its bigotry proved its undoing.

This article in today's hindu is the yuck of the day. Period.

Here's more:

"The BJP had a crystal clear Hindu right-wing vision."

I am a little hazy here.. what exactly is a "Hindu right-wing vision?!" What is this fascination with using these particular words?

In general, if you observe the article as a whole, it is like a history lesson (w.r.t Cong and BJP) from 1998 to 2009!

You forget that according to The Chindu, the only secular, progressive, noble religion is Christianity (Islam is secular, but not noble :P). Hence, right-wing, to them, would, by (second) nature, mean Christian. To make things clear, they used the H-word.
Besides, when we abuse, don't we derive more pleasure and satisfaction when saying 2 abuses consecutively as opposed to one (even if they are similar :P)? I think the same logic, more or less, can be applied to their usage
of "Hindu right-wing".
No offence, just kidding, of course! :D :D
