The noxious Dravidianist commentary is hidden from the rest of the nation as most of the utterly disgusting and crass stuff they have to say, is said in Tamil. When a Dravidian ideologue speaks in English, he/she presents a very different face.
In a speech posted (video archive link) on Dravidam 100, a verified YouTube media outlet with 128K subscribers, well-known political orator Nanjil Sampath made a racist jibe in Tamil on “foul-smelling” people from UP.
The clip above translates to “there is a goat which is so smelly no person from any of the southern states will go near it even if paid Rs. 1000. A UP’ite goes near it and the goat runs away.”
Some of the comments on YouTube cheering this speech are equally disturbing –
Sampath has been a member of different Dravidian parties. He served as propaganda secretary and deputy general secretary of the MDMK for 18 years, joined the AIADMK (TTV Dhinakaran faction), and then campaigned for DMK in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
Most Dravidianist slurs and obscene comments are reserved for Tamil Brahmin community, and North Indians are also a favorite punching bag. Whipping up hate for Hindu Dharma/Sanatan Dharma and North Indians to create a victimhood complex in Tamilians is another staple of the Dravidianst/Periyarist school.
A DMK ally has said outright that “Sanatan Dharma should be destroyed”, and this statement was supported by the TN Congress chief Alagiri, who has incidentally also come out against Kashmir Files, claiming it shows ‘half-truths’ and ‘spreads hatred’.
