Sikh-American Congressional Caucus Formed in US

Indian Express, April 25, 2013

A bipartisan group of 28 influential lawmakers have establish the first Sikh-American Congressional Caucus in the House of Representatives, with the objective of fighting hate crimes against the community and to work towards enlisting them in the army.

Formally launched at the Capitol Hill yesterday, the first ever Sikh-American Congressional caucus is co-chaired by Congresswoman Judy Chu from the Democratic Party and David G Valadao from the Republican Party.

Attended by eminent Sikh American leaders and organisations from across the country, the lawmakers also hosted a reception at the Capitol Hill in the evening.

Sikhs are suffering because many people do not understand or are simply unfamiliar with their religion.

The immediate past Chairwoman of the powerful House Committee on Foreign Relations, Ros-Lehtinen, said the Sikh American Caucus will raise awareness of the Sikh religion while advocating for solutions to end bullying and racial profiling, and to protect religious freedom in the workplace.

“It is time that we embraced our Sikh brothers and sisters as peaceful and productive members of the American society,” she said.

Sikh advocacy group, United Sikh, welcomed the creation of the Sikh American Caucus. “History has been made today some 130 years after our forefathers first arrived on American shores,” said Hardayal Singh, Director of United Sikhs.

    History is NOT being made; another group is rejecting white society. Doing what other groups have done: Chechnians, blacks, Hispanics, Chinese, Hmong, etc. In the early 20th century (white male dominated) American culture was a great attractor; today’s (feminist-liberal controled) American culture is a mess that a normal man wants to stay away from.

    • CourtneyfromAlabama

      Most white women want to stay away from this current mess also, even if many of them don’t realize it yet. It wasn’t white women who decided to reject white male dominated culture, like a lot on here like to claim. It was liberal elites who enforced “anti white male attitudes” on all of us, in the form of multiculturalism as well as feminism. The impacts of both diseases have infected and brainwashed white men and women alike; otherwise we wouldn’t be in our current mess. We need to do what we can to educate our people to bring us out of what we are currently in.

      • hoyt

        Yeah if you actually look at feminism, the prominent “movers and shakers” are a lot of “educated” black & jewish women.

        • CourtneyfromAlabama

          RamZPaul started off his speech at Amren by stating that “there are two things I won’t allow during this speech…..”.

          Anyways, one of those “things” ended up being that none of the women in the audience are allowed to accuse him of sexism for making a “dongle joke”. He was referring to a real true story about a feminist at a convention that did just that to a man in the room, and ended up causing him to lose his job. The woman was African American.

          But RamZPaul, as much as I like him, didn’t specify that during his talk, and most of the men in the room were probably rolling their eyes, thinking….”our women are nuts”.

  • Puggg

    Sikh and ye shall find.

    Seems like everyone is in on this America thing except for actual Americans.

  • “So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.”
    So start this, “fear”. I don’t know exactly what that standard is but a little fear and awe towards our God, the God of Israel, seems to be in order.
    Got a better idea?

  • So CAL Snowman

    “Sikhs are suffering because many people do not understand or are simply unfamiliar with their religion.”

    Oh the poor, poor Sikhs. If only there were a country in the world where they could practice their religion in peace, you know like INDIA.

    • guest

      Meanwhile, Americans are being thrown under the bus for all these “misunderstood minorities” who don’t even really care about America. And the American people are being taught to be ashamed and to hate their own culture and to accept other foreign cultures. It’s no wonder patriotism is so dead now.

      • François

        Or perhaps when people in the US and other Western democracies get really fed up, patriotism will be on the rise, again.

        • guest

          More like IF they ever really get fed up. Unfortunately, there are still some people in our Western societies who have gotten so brainwashed with all this PC anti-white garbage, that it seems almost impossible for them to wake up and reject the lies they’ve been told.

          • anonymous_amren

            All the brainwashed people will wake up. Many of the people commenting here used to be brainwashed.

            The people who won’t wake up are those with a financial interest in destroying white civilization.

          • whiteuncleruckus

            I used to be brainwashed. Lucky for me I woke up at a young age, while I was still in high school. If a White person over 30 hasn’t woke up yet, I fear they never will. I believe the pharase “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” applies here.

    • sbuffalonative

      Many white Christians have done well for themselves knowing nothing about the Sikh religion.

    • Sikh American

      White supremacists like you go around murdering Sikhs every day. Ever since 9/11 dumb whites have beaten up and harassed over 700 innocent, hard-working Sikh immigrants for the crime of being around ignorant, dumb whites at the wrong time. Whites should be apologizing to Sikhs.

      Btw So CAL Snowman, go back to europe. You’re not native american, hence you like Sikh immigrants have no right to be here.

      • Sloppo

        How can you be sure that CAL Snowman isn’t descended from European ancestry, which appears to be the origin of most of the oldest discovered human fossil remains in North America?

      • Michael_C_Scott

        I am a white supremacist who not only does not go around murdering Sikhs “every single day”, I don’t reserve murdering Sikhs even just for special occasions. In fact, I have made it to age 47 without murdering any Sikhs at all.

        If our country is so unhospitable for you, please leave. We don’t need you.

      • Veritas_lux_mea

        This may be news to you, but America was doing just fine before we had any “innocent, hard working” Sikhs. Actually we were doing better than fine. You’re neither needed nor wanted here.

      • Gerónimo Anónimo

        Although I concur that many attacks on Sikhs have occurred because they were mistaken for Muslims, you might do well to advertise the difference. I don’t condone attacks on anyone who hasn’t raised a hand against either me or my country. Don’t forget the massacre of countless Hindus during the Islamic invasion of the Sub- Continent

        The “Go back to Europe” comment against So CAL Snowman was bigoted and ignorant. Anyone who is born here IS “Native American”. When the so called “Indians” arrived on this continent, they annihilated the aboriginals who were here before them. Human history is a story of one people conquering and subjugating or displacing another. Europeans have no monopoly on cruelty. Everyone feels that his/her ethnicity is superior to others. It’s a normal human trait. This continent had no name until it was named after another “European” named Amerigo Vespucci.

        Maybe you’re the one who should be back on the Sub-Continent. When you come to another country to live, the usual protocol is to assimilate into the culture and not to make your new home a microcosm of the place from whence you came. Sikhs and other come here to make a better life for themselves but unfortunately there are those who come here ( Sikhs excluded) to make life unbearable for us.

        We were attacked and are still being attacked my fanatical adherents to a so called religion that seem to be based on violence against anyone who is not Muslim and even against their own who stray from the teachings of the “Prophet”. Consider the man who shot his two lovely teenage daughters because they wanted to become more “American” or the Turkish man who poured gasoline on his 18 year old daughter and set her afire because she came outside on a hot day wearing shorts.

        • François

          “When the so called “Indians” arrived on this continent, they annihilated the aboriginals who were here before them.”

          There is probably a reason why that isn’t taught in history classes…

    Oh yes, history was made alright — another step toward a non-white America.

  • SikhFreeAmerica

    I wish I could live to see the US of A become so swamped with 3rd worlders that the country finally collapses due to a lack of the people who founded, built, and maintained this nation.

    • So CAL Snowman

      Stick around it’s about to happen sooner than you think.

      • Katherine McChesney

        Someone predicted it would crash in 2013.

    • Dimitri Isakov

      Somehow, I don’t think any remaining whites will be chanting “diversity is our strength” when that happens. Diversity is ONLY good for nonwhites. In the final analysis, it amounts to a transfer of wealth and flesh from whites to nonwhites.

      • White Mom in WDC

        Actually, diversity will suck for them too. They will have bought into the American Dream aka Lie. They are alienated from their own families, will be eventually tossed under the boss by the government, and then replaced by more immigrants. Amurkistan is just one big multicultural clusterf$&k of a temp agency

        • GeneticsareDestiny

          Yep. Blacks are already being thrown under the bus for Hispanics, and Asians will be next because blacks and Hispanics resent their success.

          • White Mom in WDC

            Yep. So true. These people are just fodder for the corporate machine. And yet they all buy into it even when we racist redneck cracka non elite whites warn them. I don’t feel sorry for them. Not at all. Welcome to Amurkistan suckers ha ha ha !

          • White Mom in WDC

            We non elite ‘white trash’ know the score. That’s why the Feds and their watchdog groups like SPLC hate us. Oh well . The truth hurts

          • François

            The truth hurts, and they have to work pretty hard, because they are in a position where they have to constantly defend the indefensible! It must be very, very energy-consuming, and they won’t be able to keep it up forever!

            Plus, with the internet, it’s not like people have to rely solely on controlled newspapers, and television propaganda networks like CNN, to know what is really going on.

          • mobilebay

            Just what is it that these third world Hispanics have that we don’t? I’d love for out elected officials to tell us. If we are going to be replaced, we at least are owed an explanation.

          • Greg Thomas

            They don’t have White skin and they are dependent upon government.

      • François

        Well said.

    • Caledwych

      I’m giving it until 2025 at the latest.Bear in mind,I or most people don’t want this but a casual view of history will tell us—diversity does NOT work! Name ONE society that achieved greatness through a multitude of ethnicities and faiths clamoring for spoils.I keep thinking the Austro-Hungarian Empire of the late 19th-pre-WW1 era.They were a polyglot of competing races who viewed each other with mutual suspicion—and these groups were white!But oohh yeah leftists,let’s throw a bunch of alien societies diametrically opposed to each other in one country and watch them hold hands and sing “Kumbaya” like a cheesy ’70s soft drink commercial…oh sure,how gorgeous it will be…I’m waiting….

      • GeneticsareDestiny

        Exactly. Even different types of whites can barely get along, and countries made up of different white ethnicities tend to balkanize.

        With this being the case, how in the world do liberals expect groups as different as whites, Asians, blacks, and Hispanics to get along in one country? History would tell it that it is impossible. And history would be right.

        • The__Bobster

          A certain group want us to be perpetually at each others’ throats. It provides profit and camouflage for them. That’s why they want to import more and more disparate minorities.

      • François

        It won’t get anymore gorgeous than the Tower of Babel, I’m afraid.

      • Michael_C_Scott

        Austria-Hungary finished up relatively cleanly. Yugoslavia is the real poster child for a bad breakup of a European nation.

    • SikhsloveAmerica

      The people who built and maintained this nation were indentured chinese laborers, hispanic workers and black slaves. Whites just presided over the Native American genocide. Know your history before you mouth off.

      • Derelictus

        Wow, go to Hell, “SikhsloveAmerica” (yeah, right). America was founded and maintained overwhelmingly by Whites. Nonwhite contributions were minimal at best in the grand scheme of things. Utterly hilarious that you say you “love America” and yet badmouth the majority of its population who made it was it is today.

      • Skincognito

        Awww, you just finished HIS 101 at any American univerisity. Congrats, that’s adorable.
        The Chinese settled Appalachia and built the industrial centers of the guilded age, “Hispanic” is not an anachronism, and Amerinds never slaughtered Europeans or enslaved Negroes.
        A+
        Thank you, come again.

  • Katherine McChesney

    We called them Q-tips in New Mexico. Espanola, NM was home of “white’ sikhs. You know the White Americans who ‘fell out’ of society and joined cultish groups after they got bored with being drug-taking hippies.

    • François

      Yes, they did.

      Indira Ghandi was actually murdered by two Sikhs, who wre supposed to be her bodyguards! Some reliable protection they were, huh?

      • Katherine McChesney

        The Singh Khalsa’s in Espanola own a billion dollar security company.

        • François

          I was using irony. I meant they absolutely, totally, betrayed her and her family. Perhaps that says something about how trustworthy they are, huh?

          • Rednecks be damned

            Are you really that ignorant ? I suggest you read up about operation blue star before you come here and embarass all white people with your redneck level ignorance about the world.

          • François

            I’m not. I heard of it. I understand they wanted vengeance. But they did not do the job they were paid for, if they plotted to assassinate their own client, right?

            But since you attacked me in ad hominem fashion, I’d say, get your head out of your **s and read about Air India flight 182!

            Have a nice life.

  • Just imagine if, and it will NEVER happen, a White Christian Caucus was created–the charge of racism and hate would bring investigations and likely prosecutions.

    Only in America would White Christians stand by and allow minorities, who will, in time, be the majority without standing up for their race and interests.

    When Whites are the minority, I’d more than bet that there will NEVER be a White Christian Caucus….that would be racist.

    • François

      Only in America? Unfortunately not. The same is going on in Canada and Great Britain.

      • anonymous_amren

        It’s good that there will never be a White Christian Caucus. What we need is a WHITE Caucus that isn’t based on superstitious religious nonsense that most white people don’t really believe in.

        • Bill

          Go read Cambria will not yield blog. And get a clue. The fact that we rejected Christ was the first cobblestone necessary in the road leading us to this point. Removing that from our country and our society was the first thing they had to do in order to accomplish all the rest. Don’t believe if you wish. God allows that choice. And he has a place for you too. And it is the first thing all modern tyrannies do when in power. Ban God. Give obedience only to the State.

        • Sloppo

          I’m white and Christian and I don’t consider myself to be “superstitious”, but I also see no reason for a white caucus to be limited to those who happen to share my faith.

        • whiteuncleruckus

          I dont want a White Caucus. I want a WHITE COUNTRY!!!!!

    • StillModerated

      Hmmmm, I wonder how many Democrats would want to join.

  • bigone4u

    I guess I can only dream about a White-American caucus. Wouldn’t be PC to have that, would it.

    • White Mom in WDC

      Well big one its time whites grow some big balls and do it! I saw a bunch of idiots running around last year with ‘ I amTrayvon t shirts’ with all the white women being murdered and white men too, we should make ts with the victims names ‘I am Autumn Pasquale’

      • François

        Trayvon himself would probably have worn something more like, a t-shirt saying “Kill Whitey” or something like that.

        • bigone4u

          He probably has closet full with the eff word on them and pics of dread locked rappers with vile song titles on them.

      • bigone4u

        Our movement should have a symbol, but not a swaztika, which turns people off. The pink ribbon symbol identifies a cause and we have a cause. I think a symbol would help. It could on the t-shirts with the the victim’s names.

    • Ginger

      I think we should ‘balkanize’ with different caucuses, but also with a sense of overall race unity. One of the problems mentioned upthread is that we’re all so different that it’s harder for us to unite and lobby for ourselves, although somehow the other ethnic and racial groups manage. The Japanese and the Chinese, for eg, traditionally don’t get along until it’s time for them to join as ‘asians’ and carve up whatever piece is left of the white american carcass.

      • whiteuncleruckus

        One thing I never understood about diversity is why it is necessary. Our race is very diverse. White people are very different from each other. We are different physically, we have different political interests, different hobbies. The White race itself is very diverse. That could explain why we don’t stick together based on the singel factor of race. If you have met one black, you have pretty much met them all. If you have met one shik you have pretty much met them all. That’s how they are able to stick together so tightly.

    You know – ‘THOSE’ people…

    • GenocidalWhites

      You seem to forget that whites were also the people that mass murdered jews, native americans, japanese, muslims and pretty much everyone in their quest for hegemony. This country was “discovered” by the first native americans who came here over 30,000 years ago. Only eurocentric trash will claim the “discovery” of America to a white man when the land was populated by millions of native americans whose populations were decimated by genocidal American presidents and greedy white land grabbers some of whom were probably your slave-fucking grandfathers.

      • Derelictus

        Yeah dem evil whities who invented every modern invention, including the keyboard and computer you’re using right now, jackass. Native Americans were slaughtering each other and evidence shows they killed off the original inhabitants of the Americas (Caucasians) long before whites showed up in the late 1400s. Hilarious when minorities get uppity about “evil whitey” while living in a white-created country and using white-created inventions.

        Came across an episode of “My Favorite Martian” not so long ago. Even though he was from Mars, Uncle Martin was white and English speaking, so was everyone else.! I think that is what we call the good old days. (And yes, based on this evidence you should have a martian caucus!)

        • François

          If a remake of that show were made in 2013, the Martian would be a bisexual mulatto, greeting the Americans he encountered by saying “Si se puede!”, or something like that…

    White genocide is coming . . . every other race can have their own organizations
    that EXCLUDE OTHERS except whites. One-hundred years from now, those of other
    races will bemoan the fact that they destroyed humanity’s greatest achievers.
    Every other race has its good and bad, but white altruism, giving other races
    not only a “chance” but a “step up” with racial preferences and “affirmative
    action” will be the undoing of the white race. NO OTHER RACE has this altruistic
    “gene”. Every other race is in it for themselves . . . J C Watts had it right
    when he stated that “blacks are good at celebration, asians can put the computer
    on the head of a pin, whites are good at administration, when you put it all
    together, you have the human race”.

  • wattylersrevolt

    The Sihks are another predatory asian invader group loaded with $$$$$$$$ which they use to buy traitors in the “US” Copngress. The open intent of the Sihk Fifth Column:import millions of Sihks into our America with the goal of creating a huge southasian voting block that votes the Native Born White Americans into a very rapidly dwindling racial minority within the borders of America.

    There are no economic,demographic,cultural, and ecological reasons for importing one Sihk into our America..as far as Native Born White American Racial interests go…..never was.

    When NASA was 99 perent Native Born White American Male and America was 90 percent Native Born White American…American managed to put 12 Alpha Native Born White American Males…test pilots with advanced engineering degrees…on the Moon. The Sihk “Americans” want to male certain that this never happens again…and they are using their inicreasing numbers and massive $$$$ to do this.

    Race-replacement can not be reversed throught the corrupt beltway. If you are giving your $$$ to organizations that claim that it can be reversed through the Beltway….you are being badly decieved..or even worse…you are decieving yourself. Let Amnesty pass…better now than later. Maximize the pain level for millions of Native Born White Americans while they demographic numbers favor us.

    • Sikhisjustbetter

      Native born white americans ?? You’re hilarious !! You guys are invaders yourselves you dimwit !! And sikh americans are america’s richest, smartest, most peaceful and least criminal ethnic minority. Unlike whites who go around shooting children (NewTown,MA) or strangers (Aurora,CO) or bombing marathons (Boston,MA). I dare you to pick a single Sikh shooter, supremacist killer or mass murderer ! On the other hand, america has a Sikh governor – the governor of South Carolina – Namrata Randhawa (Nikki Haley). So Sikhs are better for America than whites.

      • TonyWestfield

        Ah, so the one drop of blood (when pricked just a little) shows all: “You guys are invaders”…”whites who go around shooting”…

        Thanks for advertising that you think like a ni**er and support the Left-Democrat political agenda.

        You draw breath in America by INVITATION ONLY, or did you forget?

        But you’re right about Nikki Haley. Great girl. Excellent leader.

    You know, it occurs to me that we’d never have to HAVE all these ethnic congressional caucuses had we NOT given the vote to blacks, as was intended by the founders, and had we NOT imported all these alien cultures and groups to our detriment. But of course, we can have any and every ethnic congressional caucus EXCEPT a WHITE congressional caucus.

    • Michael_C_Scott

      They popped her for what happened at the Amritsar Golden Temple in the 1984 “Operation Blue Star”. This was an utterly botched attempt to remove terrorist Sikh national separatists from the Golden Temple (the Sikh version of the Vatican). Ironically, the Indian army major-general commanding the disaster was Kuldip Singh Brar, a Sikh himself. There have since been several attempts on his life, the latest in September 2012 by other Sikhs who stabbed him in the neck.

      Cultural clue: not everyone with the word “Singh” in his name is a Sikh.

      In my own opinion, the level of damage done to the Golden Temple itself and the deaths of almost 500 innocent bystanders was grossly disproportionate, and involved the use of tanks, artillery and helicopter gunships by the Indian army. That said, Sikh religious officials were allowing Sikh terrorists to use the complex as a sanctuary from which to operate with impunity. I believe the Punjab should be an independent Sikh nation, but that murdering policemen and politicians – and innocent airline passengers – is not the way to achieve this.

    Dear Moderator,

    I wish you had let this “Sikh is Better” individual’s posts stand. Individuals like this, when allowed to expose themselves for what they are, serve only as propaganda for causes like AmRen. By his or her own posts, this person has made their own buffoonery as plain as day.
