Cargo cult politics briefly collided with reality in Newark, New Jersey.
A bilateral agreement was signed with the United States on January 11 to recognize Kailash.
United Kailash and Newark City, New Jersey, United States of America signed a “Bilateral Code of Ethics Agreement” at the Newark City Hall.
Permanent Ambassador of Kailash to UN Vijayapriya Nithyananda, Mayor Baraka, Deputy Mayor Defreitas and others participated in this function. Also, representatives of Kailash from New Jersey were also present.
Agreements were signed on mutual assistance in dealing with the impacts of disaster, climate change, etc., and on issues of public interest such as mental health issues, violence, poverty, illiteracy, etc.
Awkwardly, Kaliash turned out not to exist. But, in all fairness, I’m not sure that Newark does either.
The largest city in New Jersey is admitting that its officials fell for a hoax to become a “sister city” with an Indian nation that doesn’t actually exist.
At a signing ceremony on Jan. 12, Newark Mayor Ras Baraka celebrated the city’s new relationship with the United States of Kailasa. The cultural agreement officially made Newark and Kailasa global partners under Sister Cities International, a nonprofit organization founded by President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
“I pray that our relationship helps us to understand cultural, social, and political development and improves the lives of everybody in both places,” Baraka said. “We have sister cities with many cities all over the world.”
But any hopes of improving lives in Kailasa were dead on arrival because it has no residents; the rising Hindu nation isn’t real. And its leader is reportedly wanted by authorities in India for child abduction and sexual assault.
The agreement lasted for six days before city officials realized they had been hoodwinked and Baraka canceled it. Spokesperson Susan Garofalo told Indian news outlet IANS in a statement that the city cut its ties to Kailasa on Jan. 18 as soon as it learned about the situation.
Mayor Ras Baraka, Cory’s successor, is the son of racist black nationalist poet Amiri Baraka.
Should Baraka or whatever politically connected idiots he hired have realized that Kailasa doesn’t exist? I doubt they cared. Their grasp of the world is mostly limited and Kailasa had all the right credentials, like climate change, mental health issues. In a cargo cult culture, the right virtue signaling is more important than actually engaging with reality. If men can be women and deficit spending is investing, the boundaries of reality become very porous and imaginary countries can easily fall through them.
