Being the only two American governors whose parents hail from the Punjab region of India, Louisiana’s Piyush “Bobby” Jindal and South Carolina’s Nikki Haley (née Randhawa) not only share their Republican Party affiliation and conservative policies, but also have smashed more than a few of the racist stereotypes of Southern voters. In the meantime, the word on the street in the Bayou State as well as from inside the Washington, DC Beltway is that Governor Jindal is taking a very serious look at making a run for the White House.
What many talking heads point to as further proof of Jindal prepping to throw his hat into the ring would be his upcoming trip to Great Britain, as reported by The Washington Post on Jan.16, 2015 and also by the right of center The Weekly Standard news portal on Jan. 14, 2015. With the scheduled venue being Britain’s House of Commons, Jindal was invited to speak by Conservative Party parliamentarian Damian Collins. While the Louisiana born-and-bred statesman’s office in Baton Rouge has already released excerpts of his speech to the press, by all indications his lecture promises to be more fiery than a gallon jug of New Iberia’s famed Tabasco hot sauce.
With the unmistakable look of a presidential contender, Jindal certainly shows no sign that he’s concerned over wounding anyone’s inner child. As reported, the Governor plans on laying this agenda on the line from the get-go, “I will warn you in advance that I’m going to say some things that are not politically correct, so brace yourselves.”
With the echoes of the gunfire from the Paris Massacre only just faded, Jindal very well could raise eyebrows when he unequivocally states, “Let’s be honest here, Islam has a problem.” Not done yet, Jindal also plans on telling the British lawmakers, “For example, note what radical Islamists do when given the chance in territories they control either in the Middle East or even in Europe. In Iraq, ISIS commits genocide, enslaves women and beheads opponents.”
While many on the political left often turn Nelson’s Eye to the 751 recognized “no-go” zones, technically known as Zones Urbaines Sensibles (ZUS) that dot the French Republic, Jindal is equally blunt, “And in the West, non-assimilationist Muslims establish enclaves and carry out as much of Sharia law as they can without regard for the laws of the democratic countries which provided them a new home. It is startling to think that any country would allow, even unofficially, for a so called ‘no-go zone.’ In my country, Christianity is the largest religion. And we require exactly no one to conform to it. And we do not discriminate against anyone who does not conform to it. It’s called freedom.”
