As he was valiant, I honor him. But, as he was ambitious, I slew him. Or whatever. Fuck Mahinda
So Mithripala Sirisena is named the common candidate for the upcoming presidential election. Personally, I’d have liked a UNP candidate. But then again, it’s unlikely that any UNPer would be able to crack the ruling party like Mithripala can. This is really the best the opposition can do right now. I can’t blame them. Mahinda has to be stopped. The Rajapakse dynasty has to be ended. The Rajapkse family is more like a plague than a mafia family. They are like the fucking black death, fucking everything and everyone. There’s nothing not fucked by a Rajapkse. They even fucked Rugby. Seriously, they fucked Rugby. I mean, they fucked Rugby.
But fuck Rugby when Mahinda fucked the entire judicial system, and put it in his pocket. Of all the fucked up things Mahinda has done, this is the most fuckity-fuck-fuck-fucked-up-thing. See, supposedly there are three pillars of government: the executive, the legislature and the judiciary, and Mahinda completely dismantled the last one. Everyone knows the impeachment of Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake was based on bogus charges. If it wasn’t obvious for some idiots back then, it should have been made obvious when the NDB bank tried to prevent her from obtaining her own bank account details to use in the case against her.
The funny thing is, she wasn’t even an anti-government activist. Mahinda himself appointed her. She was pro-government for the most part. But when it came to this one case, just one, Basil Rajapakse didn’t get what he wanted, so the authority of the entire judiciary had to be thrown away. Fuckers. I almost wish I was superstitious, and believed in shit like hell and heaven. These assholes need to go to hell for this. The judiciary is now in Mahinda’s pocket. No one, not even JR had this kind of control over every part of the government and the country.
Then there’s the 18th Amendment to the constitution, which allowed him to be president until he dies (of auto-erotic asphyxiation). One of the points of a constitution is to protect the people from corrupt, tyrannical leaders. Even if you are an idiot who thinks Mahinda’s the best president in the entire world ever, the 18th Amendment is going to be abused to no end in the future by people who will become president. This much should be obvious to even idiots. But Mahinda Rajapakse liked power, wanted to be in power till he dies, so he fucked the constitution and the country. Or maybe he thinks he never dies. Dictators are known to have that stupid belief.
Then there’s the issue of freedom of speech. SLFPers thank Mahinda for ending the war, and thank them for letting them live freely. Of course, they live freely. Freedom of speech is an important concept only when you are a dissenter. If you are pro-government, of course you are free to say whatever the fuck you want to say. Your only criticism of government would be to give Mahinda even more power, and being the fucking idiot you are, you might think that since you are allowed to say whatever the fuck you want to say, people are living freely in this country. But if you are a dissenter, you go the Lasantha Wickremathunga way, or the Poddala Jayantha way, or wherever the fuck Pradeep Ekneligoda went.
And then there’s just plain thuggery. There is no need for an overarching political reason to beat a man to death. Pissing off a minister’s son would be enough. Malaka Silva is notorious for this. Then there are thugs who are ministers, like the mofo Duminda Silva for example, who are sponsored and protected by the Rajapakses. If you go against these people, they will kill you. It’s that simple. They’ll rape you too if you’re a woman. You need a recommendation letter from Anuradha Jayarathna, D.M. Jayarathna’s son, if you want to get a job at a private bank in Gampola. It’s that fucked up. You need to pay Mervyn Silva to do anything in Kelaniya. It’s really that fucked up.
I haven’t even talked about corruption, cooking central bank reports, and the wasteful spending by the government. There’s just so much fucked up things the Rajapakses and their cronies have done that you need to write a series of books about them if you want to cover them all. It’s true that they ended the war. But as someone said, this is like saving a girl from rapists, and raping her yourself. Mahinda has failed this nation. The Rajapakse family has fucked it up. It’s time for them to go.
