Beware Sri Lankan “Moderates” Bearing Good Governance

How those preaching good governance are just shills for a foreign extreme-left neocolonial agenda.

Sri Lanka’s wannabe John Oliver, only a lot less funny. Also, he’s a “moderate.” From here.

Let me start by asking you some very moderate, reasonable questions.

Isn’t rule of law good? Isn’t corruption bad? Isn’t ethnic harmony good? Isn’t racism bad? Isn’t trade good? Isn’t economic stagnation bad? Isn’t it better to have foreign allies? Isn’t it bad to be isolated? Isn’t development good? Isn’t debt bad?

Isn’t a fresh young leader good? Isn’t an old stale leader bad? Isn’t media freedom good? Isn’t censorship bad? Isn’t a small cabinet good? Isn’t a jumbo cabinet bad? Isn’t animal welfare good? Isn’t elephant abuse bad? Isn’t investigation of crimes good? Isn’t covering up crimes bad? Isn’t democracy good? Isn’t dictatorship bad?

Those who ask these questions seem very reasonable. Of course, all those things they list as being good, are good. And all those things they say are bad, are bad. What sensible citizen would want racism, or want to be sanctioned by foreign countries, or want criminals to go unpunished?

But when Sri Lankan “moderates” ask these reasonable questions, what they are really asking is this: Isn’t Ranil good? Isn’t Mahinda bad?

Sri Lankan Hate Exposed

hatecover1 - Copy.png

Over the past 8 years, some people have been spreading vitriolic anti-Buddhist and anti-Sinhala messages on social media in a well-organized, systematic campaign to tarnish Sri Lanka. Below is the kind of stuff they write to spread Buddhismphobia and stir racial tensions in the country.

By constantly vilifying and attacking the Sinhala Buddhist civiliazation of Sri Lanka, they are sowing fear in the minds of the minorities and trying to cause Sinhalese themselves to question their history, culture and traditions.

All of this is an attempt to fracture the nation along inter-ethnic lines and cause division within the Sinhala population itself. By doing this, they hope to break down society and then call in foreign help to recreate Sri Lanka based on extreme-left Marxist ideals in which the majority are constitutionally suppressed, and so that the whole country functions as a foreign-controlled dominion.

#FakeNews Strikes Again

Please also see latest updates here.

It is extremely sad to see the country heading into a disaster yet again under the NGO-backed Ranil and Sirisena regime.

Following on from the earlier #FakeNews attack on Sri Lanka last month, the NGOs are back at it again now.

The shady NGOs have reactivated their plan from February 11th 2018, and are yet again trying to interfere with Sri Lankan politics and the Sri Lankan democratic process by connecting Mahinda Rajapaksa and the SLPP with the present failure of law and order in their puppet regime of Ranil and Sirisena.

They are deliberately exploiting the unrest in the country to further their political agenda of preventing the patriotic, development-oriented Mahinda and his SLPP party from returning to power.

They are acting in total desperation since Mahinda’s victory in the Local Government election, and are now clutching at straws trying to prevent his return to power.

They are trying to delay the no confidence vote, prolong their illegitimate government, and possibly postpone the upcoming presidential and general elections.

I have compiled a few more of their suspiciously coordinated tweets here:

Anatomy of a #FakeNews Attack on Sri Lanka’s Democracy

Update after events of March 5th 2018 here.

As the dust was settling after the political earthquake on February 10th 2018, and even during the campaign, what was most conspicuous by its absence were the NGO-media.

In the run up to the 2015 presidential election which saw incumbent Mahinda Rajapaksa toppled by an internal coup, and later in the 2015 general election which followed it, this NGO-media force worked extremely hard to shape the perceptions around Rajapaksa and his government.

Aided by the relatively insufficient, slow, and unsophisticated responses of the Rajapaksa government, the NGO-media were able to rapidly sow ethnic divisions, stoke racial tensions, and spread all kinds of unbelievable allegations of corruption and murder against the Rajapaksa government and even against his family members.

Environmentalism under “good governance”

During and after the presidential election campaign, we heard a lot of noise from the unelected, illegally-appointed prime minister, his obsequious followers on twitter, and all the anti-national media, about the Colombo Port City.

“Environmental damage” was the main complaint, which in this case overtook the staple allegation of corruption that was usually used to denigrate every other Rajapaksa development project.

The storm has passed

Thanks to the hard work of Dinesh, Wimal, Vasudeva, GL, and a few others behind the scenes, it looks like Sri Lanka’s representative democratic system survived the onslaught of the storm of tyranny that was the 19th Amendment, a monstrosity created by the unelected de facto prime minister Ranil.

The final heavily-modified bill was passed with an overwhelming majority on Apr 28, 2015.
