Citizens of Meghalaya, India, if you want a leader who will lower taxes, brutalize criminals, and rule you like a king, elect Adolf Hitler.
The tiny northeast Indian state of Meghalaya has a special fascination for interesting and sometimes controversial names, as proven by the ballot for state elections. Among the 345 contestants running for the state assembly are Frankenstein Momin, Billykid Sangma, Field Marshal Mawphniang and Romeo Rani.
Then there is Hitler. This 54-year-old father of three has won three elections to the state assembly with little controversy over being named after the Nazi dictator.
His father had worked with the British army, but apparently developed enough of a fascination with Great Britain’s archenemy to name his son Adolf Hitler – though he also gave him the middle name Lu, Hitler said.
Big deal. Our Hitler won consecutive presidential terms last decade. The libtards know him better as George W. Bussssshhhhh…
You can’t make this stuff up, kids.
(CNN) — Think Barack Hussein Obama has it rough campaigning for president with a name like that? The Illinois senator has nothing on Frankenstein Momin. Or Billy Kid Sangma. Or Adolf Lu Hitler Marak.
The three men are among dozens of others with equally colorful names who are competing for legislative seats in Meghalaya, a remote northeast Indian state, on March 3.
There are about 60 seats up for grabs, 331 candidates vying, and no shortage of unusual names.
Yeah, the United States had a Frankenstein running for president, too. His real name was John Kerry, and his platform was, “Fire bad!”
“It would be unfair to have a laugh at these names. They’re reflective of the names here,” David R. Syiemlieh, professor of history at the North Eastern Hill University in the capital city of Shillong, told CNN on Monday.
Hitler and Frankenstein are reflective of the names in India? Are you kidding me? What’s reflective of the names in Romania? Dracula???
“Maybe my parents liked the name and hence christened me Hitler,” he once told the Hindustan Times newspaper. “I am happy with my name, although I don’t have any dictatorial tendencies.” (H/T – CNN)
Yeah, that’s what the original Hitler told people. If I were you, I’d be voting for someone with a less frightening name. There has to be a Ghandi on the ballot, right? It’s frakkin’ India!
