A Tale of Oranges By William Greene
Coming from a hippie/alternative lifestyle position in the 1970s, to being Alt Right in my old age, I confess to having many friends who were “orange people,” followers of Osho, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh. Like many of the cults of the 1970s, this was Indian based, although the movement eventually went to the US where it imploded into murder and mayhem, all centred around the right hand woman of Ma Anand Sheela.
“To defend the Rajneesh movement from the overreach of the state of Oregon, Sheela organized the first and largest bioterror attack in United States’ history. After carefully cultivating salmonella, Sheela instructed her followers to secretly place it in food items at Oregon restaurants. 751 people were infected and 45 were hospitalized. For this crime, Sheela only served 29 months of a 20-year sentence in a California prison. Breitbart News highlighted a report last week from FiveThirtyEight that shined a light on the U.S. Sentencing Commission revelation that American women of all races receive shorter prison sentences than white men who commit the same crimes.”
But Sheela, according to this article has become a feminist icon, and apparently trying to murder people does not matter, unless of course it is with an AR 15, in which case all guns must be banned. There have been thousands of supportive comments on the net by the girl power types praising Sheela, so we know for sure that we are in the heat of a multi-facetted cultural war.
