I’m anti-sinhalese-buddhist, and have made no attempt to hide that fact. I have no beef with the Sinhalese people. Neither do I have problem with Buddhism (other than the problems I have with every other religion). But I hate Sinhalese-Buddhism, this idea of merging race and religion and making it something much bigger than either race or religion. Sinhalese-Buddhism is something oppressive. Something against individual freedom, to read, to write, to watch, to touch, to f**k… So I generally lean towards the UNP, the less Sinhalese-Buddhist political party of the two main ones. I don’t think this is how your usual Sinhalese-hardcore-UNPer thinks about his party. They’re proud to be Sinhalese- Buddhists, I think… I have stated in my earlier posts, and in comments I’ve made in other blogs, that I’m a Liberal Democrat except on the Tamil Terrorist issue. My grudge against the Tigers, and all other Eelam lovers, is personal. So I wanted them killed, to be vanquished. I know for a fact that I’m no patriot though… I love the Mahinda Administration for what they did with the tigers. I also think they did quite a good job with the economy. But I wanted them out as soon as the war ended. Not only because I hate the corruption, despotism, nepotism, tyranny, family bandyism blah blah blah, but also because of their Sinhalese-Buddhist bullshit, their belief that they have a sacred right to f**k us all in our anuses… UNP couldn’t win. They’ve masturbated their brains out. But along came Fonseka. Someone with a slight chance to win. Someone I thought wasn’t anti-Sinhalese-Buddhist, but certainly not pro-Sinhalese-Buddhist either. Maybe pro-Sinhalese. Maybe Sinhala supremacist. But certainly not pro-Sinhalese-Buddhist… I also thought he was uncorrupted. I’m an optimist. I wanted to believe. I had a blind faith on him. So I defended him whenever someone accused him of corruption. I was a fool. He was corrupt. I was f**ked, and pissed off… I decided to vote for Mahinda. I would ridiculd him and Wimal and Patali. But I’d still vote for him. I must say, I have a great respect for this man. Corruption and Sinhalese-Buddhist bullshit aside, he’s a remarkable leader. Perhaps the greatest we’ve ever had. And yes, he was the key to win the war, not Fonseka… But then, now there’s this photograph, suggesting that he’s corrupt to a level that I never imagined. I remember the faces of the SLFP people of our family when they first came to know this. Utter shock. Then started the justification. Bullshit… Who am I going to vote for? Still leaning towards MR. Yeah. Fonseka pissed me off that much. Not to mention his donkey gaffes. Bloody gaffe machine. But I dislike MR more than I disliked him a week ago.
