Dear Mr. Pipes,

Somewhere in this you have remarked Aryans invaded India. The Aryan invasion is debated even to this day and other than a few 19th century british colonial linguistic interpretation of Indian languages there has been no archeological or genetic evidence to prove it. Academic Leftists who hate Israel, Racial Supremacists, Communists, Fundamentalist Christians are the ones who still believe in it.
