The bizarre story of Sai Varshith Kandula is one for the ages. A U-Haul box truck rammed a security barrier near the White House on May 23, and with painful predictability, the left-wing media waxed hysterical about white supremacist terror attacks. As it turned out, the alleged perpetrator of this attempted one-man coup d’etat, Kandula, was a 19-year-old Indian immigrant – not white and, therefore by definition, not a white supremacist. Then, out of the blue, a Nazi flag shows up at the scene, raising all kinds of questions. But subsequent legal developments have blown an even bigger hole in the theory that Kandula is some kind of dangerous right-wing extremist.
Kandula Charges Downgraded – Why?
Consider the grotesque perversion of US laws and constitutional rights that a number of conservatives have contended has played out with the arrested Jan. 6 protesters. Now imagine what would have happened to Kandula had he been a white man from Alabama – perhaps a known Trump supporter or maybe a member of one of those insignificant bands of lunatics who do actually believe in white supremacy. He would now be facing an array of extremely serious charges. The chances of him ever again walking the streets as a free man would be, as they say, slim to none. However, those serious charges Kandula was originally facing – including “threatening to kill, kidnap or inflict harm on a president” and “assault with a dangerous weapon” – have now reportedly been erased. This immigrant, who is said to be a green card holder, now faces only the charge of “depredation of property of the United States in excess of $1,000.”
The Biden administration’s frequently stated position is that white supremacist terror represents the greatest threat to America. The fact that Kandula is looking at just one relatively minor criminal charge is all the proof anyone needs that no one suspects this young man of being either a white supremacist or a right-wing extremist. If proof existed that he was either or both of those things, Kandula would not be getting off this lightly. Additionally, that proof would probably have already been leaked to the media so they could wallow in a “we told you so” moment and crow incessantly about the dangers of right-wing white fanaticism.
Instead, there is the strange appearance of a Nazi flag, supposedly carried by Kandula in a backpack when he rammed the fencing at Washington, DC’s Lafayette Park. Assuming this is true – and many have speculated on social media that the flag was planted at the scene – it means nothing. As the historical record shows, Nazism is a form of socialism. So, it seems that Kandula was perhaps a left-wing fanatic. More than likely, though, he suffered some kind of psychotic break.
Then again, this story is bursting with conspiratorial potential. A non-white immigrant plows into a barrier near the White House; conveniently, he’s in possession of a Nazi flag that had no practical purpose whatsoever in his alleged plan to take over the country (it wasn’t even a very large flag); criminal charges against him are downgraded to a slap on the wrist. Either Kandula is quite insane or this whole affair reeks of another political hoax. It’s Jussie Smollett being attacked by fictitious Trump supporters all over again. It’s Bubba Wallace’s imaginary noose. It’s all those times left-wing activists showed up at right-wing rallies carrying swastika flags in the hopes that people would think they were part of the event.
It’s not that easy to disregard the suspicion that Kandula either planned the stunt himself out of a desire to smear conservatives or that he was put up to it. The flag is, well, the red flag. Why would he have taken that with him? Why would someone originally from India have Nazi sympathies? There are no rational answers to those questions. Even if one puts the whole thing down to mental illness, the fact that Kandula had with him a swastika flag as he apparently attempted to attack the White House is just too convenient for the left’s narrative and the Department of Homeland Security’s apparent belief that all conservatives are Nazis. One thing is fairly certain: The details of this story – and probably Kandula himself – will quickly disappear from the public eye, so that all we are left with are vague reminders that some guy with Nazi sympathies once tried to overthrow the government.
