Municipal Elections 1: The Lebanese People Deserve their Garbage

If yesterday's elections results are a sign of anything, it is that the Lebanese people are really either jerks or idiots.

In the backwoods of the Shiite heartland, 50% of eligible voters voted for Hezbollah and Amal against a minority of "opposition" Shiites.

In the Christian Zahle district, a traditionalist "political party-based" coalition defeated two traditionalist "family-based" coalitions (the Skaff and Fattoush families, both equally backward and corrupt).

And in the supposedly more enlightened Beirut district, people who should have voted for reform-minded technocrats did not even bother to haul their asses and go vote, and the same 18% of eligible voters who voted for the Hariri neanderthals in 2010 voted yesterday for the same neanderthals.

In other words, neither the Syrian crisis, nor the endemic corruption of the ruling class and the scandals that plague this country because of that political class, including the the garbage crisis of this past summer and fall, nor the endless string of sit-ins and demonstrations have stirred any life in the brain-dead Lebanese people. We are like a dead corpse on which the political ruling class feeds like so many leeches, worms, and other bloodsuckers. We have known this indifference to be a feature of the Lebanese people, but no one suspected it would so enduring. It is one thing to be indifferent in a country where things work normally (as happens often in the West, for example, where voter apathy seems irrelevant to a well-functioning system), but it is a different thing when you are surrounded by garbage of all kind, when your life is rotten because of how your own politicians treat you, when the infrastructure is primitive (roads, streets, garbage, water, internet, electricity, pollution....), where you are forced to become a corrupt individual because of all the corruption that surrounds you... You'd think that the bastard Lebanese would be stirred to action to try and improve their lives, but they did not show any sign of that yesterday.

I have no hope that the upcoming municipal elections in the remaining districts will make a difference, because they are mostly all in more rural environments where familial and sectarian barbarism and traditionalist politics rule supreme.

To all my fellow Lebanese who did not vote for change yesterday and who contemplate emigrating, start preparing your documents. This country has no use for your sophisticated nagging. Just be gone and abandon this country to the real barbarians who love it "as it is" and who voted yesterday for their local bosses. You will still need the useless "إفادة مختار" by the new moukhtar, the even more barbaric "إخراج قيد", and $400 to get a passport. You will still have to be humiliated a final few times at all the funky Lebanese administrations and the doors of foreign embassies before you escape this Gulag of barbarism, corruption, pollution, garbage, and, lest we forget, this " بلد الحضارة والعيش المشترك ".

Donald Dumb: Americans Now Proud to be Dumb

Donald Dumb seems to have given white anglo-saxon protestant America a jolt of adrenaline, which he calls "Make America Great Again". Allow me to deconstruct that for you.

For decades, if not for the couple of centuries of the age of the United Scams of America, Inc., white protestant anglos sat at the top rung of the pecking order ladder. Everybody else was fair game for discrimination, racism, filthy arrogance.... Keep in mind that white Americans are largely the descendants of illiterate, ignorant, poor Protestant peasants from the boonies of Western and Northern Europe, followed by hordes of equally ignorant and backward peasants from Catholic and Orthodox Southern and Eastern Europe.

As they encountered a peaceful indigenous native American population, the white anglos proceeded to decimate them in one of the grandest episodes of ethnic cleansing and genocide that the world has ever seen. The militarily inferior Indians did not stand a chance and were soon wiped out, leaving a new country with unlimited resources to a bunch of peasant idiots without any competition. Counter to the myths and lies that Americans propagate about how tough it was to making it in America (Settlers, pioneers, Wild West frontier, etc.) or how they and the Indians got along eating turkey and corn (Thanksgiving), settling in America was very easy, a lot easier than in the Old World. All you have to do was to be dumb enough to know where the port was in your town, get on a boat and cross the Atlantic to a land emptied of its native peoples and without any competition whatsoever.

As the 20th century came along, newer immigrants began arriving, technology was changing, human rights were advancing, and the US - thanks to the backward and arrogant genetic pool - was always the last one to join these advances because peasant Americans "knew better" than following the opinions of more enlightened people. No to the metric system. No to emissions controls. No to the UN. Any move by humankind to evolve out of its neanderthal past, Americans opposed.

Then one day, all these white anglo-saxon neanderthals, who had gotten used to easy jobs and entitlements simply because they were white and dominated the landscape, began losing their safe jobs to smarter, more educated immigrants who developed the new technologies and mastered them better than the backwoods white idiot from the boonies of America. As they began falling behind and refusing to evolve, these white neanderthals began blaming everyone else for having to actually compete and earn a serious living by using their brains. Knowing how to cut trees, shoot guns, kill Indians, lynch Black Africans, and drive pickup trucks were no longer marketable skills. Losing their jobs in big corporations that took care of them from cradle to grave, they blamed all the other Americans (Blacks, Indians, Hispanics, Arabs, Catholics, Muslims, Indians, Chinese....).

Last year, one of their best specimens, a man by the name of Donald Dumb, who inherited his billions from his daddy and made himself some money building buildings (not rocket science if you already own billions from your daddy), decided to run for president to rescue the white bastards from their stupidity. White anglos already knew they were the dumb and ignorant, and for decades they nurtured their inferiority complexes vis-a-vis smarter peoples from around the globe stoically and silently because they lacked knowledge, language skills, and other basic brain functions to argue with smarter people. And so they contended themselves with discriminating against everyone else when they could, shooting them on the streets when unarmed, compensating for their inferiority with stupid racist supremacist ideologies that included, among other manifestations of white power, stashing food in the woods for when the time comes to fight their war of liberating white asshole America from the invading hordes.

What Donald Dumb, and let us give credit where credit is due, George W Bush before him, showed these frustrated disgruntled racist white protestant peasants from the boonies of America is the right to be publicly dumb. No longer did they have to suffer in silence because of the shame of being a dumb asshole, for Donald Dumb showed them that you can be a total idiot, blather it every day on the news, and best of all be proud of it! That is in essence the explanation for Donald Dumb's popularity: He liberated the white protestant idiots from the shame of being idiots, and he taught them to be proud and "great" again..

Instances of white Americans now openly displaying the courage of be public fools are best exemplified by the rash of people getting kicked off planes because a stupid white American suspected a terrorist.

- Apr 16, 2016 - A Muslim woman was kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight at a Chicago airport because the white female flight attendant 'did not feel comfortable' that the traveler switched seats with a fellow passenger.
 
- April 18, 2016 - Khairuddin Makhzoomi, a UC Berkeley student, was kicked off another Southwest Airlines flight because he called his uncle in Baghdad after getting on the plane and chatted with him in Arabic about the dinner event he had just attended with U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. "Speaking Arabic" is suspicious, especially when the white fellow passenger who reported this "terrorist" activity did not understand Arabic himself. For dumb Americans who barely know English, any foreign language is suspicious.

- May 7, 2016 - Guido Menzio, an Italian economics professor at the University of Pennsylvania was just scribbling down math equations on a piece of paper while waiting for his American Airlines flight to take off frpm Philadelphia en route to Syracuse NY. The white woman passenger sitting next to him decided, since Menzio's looks are Mediterranean/Middle Eastern and the math scribbling appeared to her as Arabic, that he was up to no good and the math he was doing was suspicious "terrorist" activity. So she proceeded to alert a flight attendant who immediately recruits the pilot of the plane into delaying the flight, removing Menzio from the aircraft, then have him interrogated by a customer service manager for the airline and local security on suspicion of terrorism because of his note-taking.


The preceding is only a sample of how white Americans have become proud to display their dumbness, thanks in no small way to Donald Dumb. His vigor and pride at blathering vacuous inanities and mistakes (he believes that the 9/11 attacks actually happened in July 2001 at a 7/11 store) has reinvigorated and unchained the dumb white asshole peasants of America.

America did not sink this low even under George W Bush. Funny how white America's dumbness is constant regardless of region. We used to think that George W Bush was an idiot because he was from Texas. Now Donald Dumb has proven that New Yorkers too can be dumber than Texans, and that their so-called "sophistication"  is itself a fake, a figment of their inferiority complex that rightfully plagues them because they are genetically a dumb people, having inherited the dumb genes from their peasant ancestors from the boonies of Europe.
