I really regret for what happened to this young professional. I don't have any hesitation to tell that the increased violence we see in this country against the minority is Triggered by one of the unqualified President elected by people like Ravi Menon. Trump is a pathological liar and a narcissist. He doesn't care about anyone other than himself. He and his radical white group want to get rid of all the emigrants and want to make this country great again with whites. People like Ravi Menon is going to learn hard way. They are going to wake up when they get kicked in their ass until then they keep on fighting with people tell the truth. As Andrew said, if you see the stock market surge as the indication of Trumps glory then you are mistaken. It is the result of the rhetoric Trump is using not because he has done anything yet. He is busy suppressing media who is trying to bring out the Russian connection and eventually his impeachment. More you can read in my comment posted under G. Puthenkurish's article. I don't want to waste my time on you because of your poor intellectual capacity.Anthappan 2017-02-25 20:57:55
This is an excellent article and the writer deserves kudos for throwing light into one of the major signs of dictatorship. Shutting down media is one of the characteristics of the dictators. Historical data proves it.
Several major news outlets found themselves blocked from attending a Friday White House press briefing with Sean Spicer, the Press Secretary, the latest sign of worsening relations between the Trump administration and the media attempting to cover it. The New York Times, , the Los Angeles Times, Huffington Post, Buzz feed and Politico were among the news organizations prevented from attending, according to posts by reporters from those outlets on Twitter, as were several foreign news organizations. The Associated Press and Time declined to take part.
Trump’s Nixonian echo is hard to miss. Both men relished vendettas against the media and political establishments: Nixon viewed the press as “the enemy”; Trump calls it “scum.” And both professed to champion America’s “silent majority,” invoking an angry faux-populism to blame racial minorities for legitimate economic grievances. Like Trump, Nixon’s battles with the press began long before his march to the White House. He, too, obsessively sought to manipulate the news coverage he desperately craved and wasn’t afraid to use intimidation if he thought it would help. Nixon’s conduct in office presents a chilling example of what a President Trump could do.
In a move to tighten his control over Russian media, President Vladimir Putin has dissolved the country’s main state news agency and replaced it with a propaganda arm tasked with promoting the country’s image.
Once they succeeded in ending democracy and turning Germany into a one-party dictatorship, the Nazis orchestrated a massive propaganda campaign to win the loyalty and cooperation of Germans. The Nazi Propaganda Ministry, directed by Dr. Joseph Goebbels, took control of all forms of communication in Germany: newspapers, magazines, books, public meetings, and rallies, art, music, movies, and radio. Viewpoints in any way threatening to Nazi beliefs or to the regime were censored or eliminated from all media.Anthappan 2017-02-25 20:44:11

Yes, Dr. Sasi I agree with you. The Kairalii Channel has lost some credibility because of some recent attitudes one after another. The law academy issue, Bhavana actrees issue, most of the time standing on the wrong side. After LDF getting power the party channel lost the creditibilty. The Kairali USA man also merly play politics, the opinions are biased. During the UDF rule the Kairalee was standing with the right and proper side. Now blindly kaiaralii support the ruling LDF and satand with the corruption and with the rich and powerful. Hope it will correct and rise to the occassion. All the best for their recovery.Vayanakkaran 2017-02-25 20:33:00

Still Namam is a religious organization. Nama is a vargieeya Association. Look at the new office holders. Here also the elected officers all seems to belong to one religious group. Also Chair man became secretary Geneneral. Old wine in new bottle. The Chair man/ or secretary general look like permanent. and it seems his own religios organizational property. To get a bi post in FOKANA, abain some kind of Urundu kali or bla.. bla.. saying. This is also just like Tamilnadu Sasikala type of petty or penny organization. There is another petty small press club also headed by a permanent charman post. There also he sits permanently and he pick and choose the rest of the committe year after year. Butone thing if some body question means all non profit organization must follow democratic election processVayanakkaran 2017-02-25 19:20:37

some more points to add to Sri.Puthenkurish great thoughts:
these are few highlights of what is happening around you. You might have voted for the trumputin in the dreams of making money in stock, some of you might have invested money in his hotel franchise, but you ignored the evil in him.
We are on the threshold of ethnic clenching by KKK. Open your eyes and ears.
Germans could have prevented the rise of Hitler. But in the beginning Germans too said 'give him a chance'. Those who voted for trump is saying the same, but we are facing fascism, just be aware.

Evil is evil, when you see evil in front of you, do not justify it by saying like things happened before.
we all know white nationalists are doing racial profiling & crimes all over.
They voted for trump and he has not told the fundamentalists to stop evil crimes.
if you voted for trump you are a racist too menon

Racism is very high in most part of US. Children are bullied in schools, Many dark skinned are told to go back home. People are detained in airports for hrs. Police is checking people with racial ethinicity.
Menon if you travel out of US and when come back you going to suffer severe scrutiny.
Media is not reporting many racial profiling crimes to prevent copy cats. White extremits will be more courageous to do more evil because they have a president and cabinet full of racists. 90% of police are affiliated to KKK. Menon, you might be sitting in a cave unaware of what is happening.

Please apply some commonsense and talk!!!
Understand and absorb to your head, no one is supporting any type of killings. Unfortunately here some ignorant white supremacist attacked our fellow Indian and you started applying cheap politics here? പുരകത്തുമ്പോൾ വാഴ വെട്ടുക എന്ന് കേട്ടിട്ടേയുള്ളു Andrew & Anthappan. You proved it.
In 2012 seven people were shot and killed at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. Was it because you voted for Obama?
