I read the post title as "Indiana Farmer," which frankly makes more sense.
I was not at all prepared for images of an Indian man worshipping Trump at his homemade shrine.
Interesting that the doctors say there was no link between his fasting and his death. Can you imagine being this distraught over Trump having an illness?
Maybe indulging mental illness in our friends and family is not always for the best.

I do wonder if India is where a lot of troll-farm-work gets outsourced...

The article references this statue of our beloved vairst lady, sculpted in her hometown, yet sadly set on fire.
It's been replaced with a bronze statue.

R5 Interesting. I hadn't thought of that before.
I wonder how I can get a job destabilizing a foreign nation through social media trolling.

Is this a branch of Thugee?

R6 That's not the one. It's a statue of Donald, and he has vampire teeth.

This is not unusual at all in India. Hinduism has millions of gods and goddesses, and new gods are created every day out of all kinds of things. It's common for people to burn incense in front of Bollywood movie posters, for example.
In 1972, a movie director created a move called "Hail Mother Santoshi", in which he invented a new goddess, Santoshi, who symbolized women's empowerment. The goddess "caught on" and Santoshi became an actual goddess in the pantheon who is now worshiped throughout India.
The concept of "divine" isn't so exclusive, but more like the Japanese kami or spirits who are attached to all kinds of everyday things. To call this farmer dumb or crazy is to see him through our own cultural lens.

Nationalist Indian Hindus and US rightwing Republicans have a lot in common, particularly when it comes to muslims and trump.

Indians also love Hitler, so I'm surprised there isn't a full on Trump cult.

Frankly, looking at the farmer, the fast could only have improved his health. Something else killed him.

People who worship any God or think any human deserve worship are fucking nuts, there might or might not be a God but clearly there is no God that created any religion or gives a single shit whether you worship it or not.
It is amazing how many things the right complained about the left doing when Obama was President, like claiming the left worshiped Obama, that they are now doing for Trump. The right complained that Obama was destroying America, but it is Trump that is destroying America. They said Obama was dividing America but it is Trump who is actively dividing us.

I wonder if Trump has asked for that statue, it is skinnier than Trump and the hands are larger than Trump's, like most Trump cult worshipers he has an unrealistic idea of what Trump is.

To me the statue looks more like Pence than Trump. Maybe that's what did the farmer in?
