Joe Michael (24 March 2009) In this perplexed Ethiopian politics era, one indisputable fact is how futile the so-called Ethiopian parliamentarians are. They see nothing, they hear nothing, and they think nothing. They are like zombies that have no will of their own. Their boss, Meles Zenawi sits upfront and every time there is something to vote on, they have to follow what ever he does. No matter what, if he raises his hand they do, if he doesn’t they don’t.
While millions of people are dying of hanger, millions of people are getting unemployed, and factories are shutting down, the blatant Prime Minister told his Zombie parliamentarians that the country’s economy is growing. The Zombies saw nothing, heard nothing, or thought nothing. They just applauded. When Zenawi said he gave Ethiopia’s land to Sudan because it belongs to Sudan, the zombies saw nothing, heard nothing, or thought nothing. They just applauded. When Zenawi told them that he arrested opposition leaders, killed their supporters, and tortured those who persisted, the zombies saw nothing, heard nothing, or thought nothing. They just applauded.
Even an infant reacts to unfamiliar face, but they don’t to a total mayhem. They are a living dead.
What is weirder is being an EPRDF’s zombie in the free world. There are EPRDF’s blind supporters in the United States and in Europe, who neither open their eyes to see the reality nor dare to be concerned about the future of Ethiopia. What ever Meles Zenawi says is true for them even if it isn’t. When Zenawi fallaciously said the economy is growing, they congratulated him. When he later on said there is going to be chaos unless he gets money from the West, they highly praised him. Obviously, if tomorrow Zenawi says Gojam belongs to Somalia, there is no question that they would endorse him.
Recently, Meles Zenawi boldly told local journalist that arresting opposition party leaders is good for democracy. His zombies in the U.S. and in Europe did not think twice to approve him. In fact they instinctively hallowed him to arrest and kill more opposition members.
There is indeed political and business self-interest behind such zombified brain. Most of them own businesses, houses, and different assets. They know that Zenawi is evil and a liar, but they are oblivious to evil. They chose to have undead body with unconscious brain so that their benefits are protected. They see nothing, they hear nothing, and they think nothing. They are simply zombies for the sake of their benefits.
Ethiopians should stand together against these elements. They should be identified, isolated, and stopped. Since they chose to be zombies, they are the most evil and disgusting beings imaginable and should be shattered at all costs.
