Neal Katyal Has “Harrowing” Burning Man Escape, Retorts “I Am Hindu” To Indicted Trumpian
India-West News Desk
LAS VEGAS, NV – Neal Katyal, the former acting Solicitor General of the United States, has described his “incredibly harrowing” journey out of the Burning Man festival. Tens of thousands of festivalgoers found themselves stranded as heavy rain transformed the annual festival’s location in the Black Rock Desert into a mud pit.
Social media is awash with music-goers sloshing around in the mud with trash bags strapped over boots to fight the mud that is reported to stick and create a mess. Spirits seem to have remained high even after organizers and state officials cautioned that water and food be conserved till the crowd could leave the site safely.
Organizers gave attendees the option of a five-mile trek by foot from the festival grounds to the nearest town, which is Gerlach. From there, they made available shuttle buses to take them to the nearest airport in Reno.
Neal Katyal sharing his experience said, “It was an incredibly harrowing 6 mile hike at midnight through heavy and slippery mud, but I got safely out of Burning Man. Never been before and it was fantastic (with brilliant art and fabulous music)…except the ending.”
However, Katyal cautioned others who might be considering the journey, advising that it should only be attempted by those in good physical condition and part of a group. The mud, he explained, resembled cement and clung tenaciously to boots, with some areas possessing quicksand-like properties that could trap unwary travelers.
Meanwhile, Jeff Clark, who has been an Assistant Attorney General in the Trump administration and on August 14, was indicted along with 18 other people in the prosecution related to the 2020 election in Georgia, tweeted, “Why am I not surprised that Neal Katyal made it a priority to get to a neopagan ritual?…. Pray that these folks come to the light & realize that the only path is through and to our Lord. We are all fallen and need God, and to repent as a Nation.”
Katyal was quick to respond: “Dear Criminal Defendant Clark,” he wrote, “I am a Hindu. Are you suggesting I do not belong in this country? You might be better off studying our Founders, the text of our First Amendment, and (albeit for other reasons), the Criminal Code.”
Twitterati flooded Katyal’s response, denouncing Clark.
