An Open Response to Thisuri’s 2015 Rant

The fall of a lying Yahapalana Harpie: An Open Response to Thisuri’s Rant on her deleted blog: “An Open Response to Namal’s Rant on the Colombo Telegraph “Vengeful Politics and Rugby: Phone Calls to My Brothers””

I’m so sorry that the regime you helped bring to power is struggling a lot these days.

Imagine my utter disgust to see, immediately after a humiliating rout at the local government election, just when a no-confidence motion was about to be presented against your boss Ranil, which would have brought down his entire illegitimate regime and your monstrous yahapalanaya, a massive, deadly race riot began, with eerie similarities to the 1983 riots – which also happened the last time the UNP were in charge.

I remember you liked to write sarcastic letters when you want to make political points, so I thought I would try and reach you through your preferred medium. I have to warn you though, I’m not so good at two-faced spleen venting, so it won’t be as undignified as the effluent you put out.

I was reflecting on the people who were around online back in 2015, and thought of finding your blog again to reminisce about those days. What a journey we’ve had since then!

Sri Lanka’s Second Declaration of Independence

This local election was first and foremost a battle for the heart of the Sinhala patriotic movement. It was a battle for the soul, the true essence, of the SLFP — or more accurately, the party which was once known as the SLFP. It was never really about whether the UNP would get the most votes or not (which happily, they did not achieve despite all the delays and fudging going on, even as these words are typed).

What we have seen yesterday is the utter decimation of the SLFP. That once great party was formed as a patriotic counterbalance to the Imperialist-minded UNP. Sirisena, through desperation to cling to the power he is not fit for, decided to gift the SLFP right back into the hands of the UNP.

The Sinhala patriotic masses gave him a swift response. They went overwhelmingly back to their Appachchi. The resounding result for the SLPP was in fact a second declaration of Independence, this time against the neo-colonialist brown stooges who wormed their way into power through spreading false allegations against Mahinda and tried to return the country to servitude.

The people have spoken loud and clear. They reject the colonial-style witch hunts, the trumped up charges, and the vilification and harassment of their war winning leader Mahinda Rajapaksa and the war heroes who defeated the world’s most ruthless Tamil terrorists. They reject the destruction of the economy, the kowtowing to the former imperialists, and the snubbing of China. They reject the new constitution which would return the country to domination by a foreign-backed Christian minority. They reject the indignities that their nation, history, culture, and civilization have been subjected to for the past 3 years.

Sirisena, who absurdly claimed that he represented the Bandaranaike legacy just a day before the election, has suffered a total strategic defeat. The party he purportedly leads no longer exists. As such, the cabal of greedy UPFA MPs and ministers who still hang on to Sirisena have absolutely no mandate: again, their party does not exist.

There is literally no coming back from this.

The only logical action to take is the dissolution of parliament and a new general election.


Mahinda-phobia: Only the Mad Would Vote for Ranil

Looking objectively, not a single valid, factual, logical reason exists which would permit a sane person to vote against Mahinda. And underlying every illogical attack on Mahinda is thinly veiled anti-Sinhala, anti-Buddhist bigotry.

This blatant, shameless racism against the Sinhalese race, the Sinhalese-Buddhist nation and civilization, is what causes the vile, militant, base, and crude anti-Mahinda sentiment among the NGO-cabal, certain foreign agents, certain political parties, and the majority of Sri Lanka’s newspapers, TV stations and political websites.

The first signs of this new disease could be seen in the last 12 months of the war. As victory for the Sri Lankan government became more and more likely, the allegations about war crimes, the threats and intimidation, the suspension of aid, all began to be ratcheted up. As Mahinda refused to bend to the will of the various nefarious, conniving forces who were arrayed against him and the future safety and security of Sri Lanka — and principally of the Sinhalese Buddhist civilization — the attacks on Mahinda himself, his character, and his family began.

Mahinda’s re-election in 2010 left these forces in disarray, but they did not give up. In 2015 they thought they achieved their goal. But now as Mahinda appears to be on the cusp of a return to his rightful place — at the helm of this nation, leading it to greatness — those forces are now rabid. They have an irrational, all-encompassing, hatred of Mahinda. A condition that can only be explained as a phobia: Mahinda-phobia.

Ranil’s Increasing Desperation as UNP Runs Out Of Time

With just 2 weeks left to polling day, there are obvious signs of severe strain in the UNP camp. Cynicism and lies seem to be their only weapons.

Since my last analysis (available here), the UNP campaign has been unable to gain mainstream traction. Hence, their strategy has shifted, taking on a more desperate bent. Importantly, the campaign has lost its united approach. Ranil heads the campaign nationally, but the UNP workers, MPs, and ministers are all saying and doing different things in different places. “Kandaheliyak” seems to be the best description.

Summary of the UNP campaign: Ranil sad, Sirisena looking elsewhere. From Lanka Independent.

Ranil appears to have dropped his pet project, the infamous “pokuru gammana,” for unknown reasons. After the TNA’s demands for federalism, he has also stopped talking about forming a “national government,” instead insisting against all evidence that the UNP will secure a majority on their own. Also vanishing are the combined portraits of SWRD and DS Senanayake first seen at the UNP’s inaugural rally. No sign is visible either of the much-hailed “UNFGG,” which appears to have been dropped in favor of the more recognizable “UNP” title. It is also rare to hear the infamous “yahapalanaya” catchphrase.

Where we stand

The last week’s events were unprecedented in Sri Lanka’s history. Never before in the Sinhalese civilization’s lengthy chronicle do we find such political manoeuvrings. The reasons for what transpired within the UPFA/SLFP grouping can be analysed later. For now, let’s see where we are.

How it all began

There may or may not have been a meeting between Sirisena and Mahinda prior to the dissolution of parliament. Why parliament was dissolved, when there had been no signs of such an event occurring for the foreseeable future, is another mystery which can be discussed later.

On July 1, 2015, Mahinda addressed thousands of supporters indicating unequivocally for the first time since the presidential campaign of winter 2014, that he would be contesting the general election with the aim of forming the next government.

Deconstructing Sirisena: Sri Lanka’s first dictator

As we approach 200 days of the “100 day regime” of “perfect governance,” we see Sirisena for the crude, conniving politician that he truly is. Let’s unravel the Sirisena web of lies.

Maithripala Sirisena came onto the presidential stage in a manner so contrived that it looked scripted right out of the shadowy halls of the NGO dens of Colombo — as it turned out, it was exactly that. Here was a man from deep within the Rajapksa government, who apparently at great risk to himself, suddenly came out to denounce his leader, his party, and his nation. He said he had seen untold corruption and felt the need to stand up for “good governance” and to stand against “selling of the country” to certain foreign powers, meaning China.

Based on Mahinda Rajapaksa’s mistakes in communicating his plans and explaining his actions, and on the background of an anti-national drumbeat of derision and allegations — which were never confronted head-on by the Rajapaksa government — from the disloyal opposition led by Ranil Wickremasinghe, the swing voters and urban pseudo-middle class fell for Sirisena’s lies hook, line and sinker.

Sirisena said that Mahinda had bought helicopters, horses and Lamborghinis for his sons, all at taxpayer expense. Sirisena said that Mahinda and his ministers used artificially inflated Chinese loans to fund “corruption” and to sell the country to China through this indebtedness. Sirisena said that he would usher in a new, “perfect government,” to be led by Wickremasinghe for 100 days. Sirisena said that after those 100 days, he would dissolve parliament for a fresh, clean, new parliament to then continue with the “good governance” regime.

As we know now, Sirisena was lying.

Desperate and scared, Ranil and his pambaya go for the nuclear option

The imminent arrest of Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, our war-winning defence secretary, highlights how weak the unelected prime minister Ranil is. The anti-national coalition which came together to win on Jan 8 — on the back of dispicable lies, as it turned out — expected to have cemented their grip on power by now. Instead the whole house of cards has come crashing down, as the foundation of lies on which it stood crumbles under the weight of truth and patriotism.

The unprecedented success of the “Bring Back Mahinda” rallies have proven the potency of the Rajapaksa brand. The people have realized they were duped Continue reading “Desperate and scared, Ranil and his pambaya go for the nuclear option”
