The fascist neoliberal state of the “Shining City on the Hill” loves fake elections. Loves ‘em. Real elections suck. They learned that lesson in Chile and Palestine… and Egypt and Thailand and Russia…
Fake elections provide the outward appearance of “democracy” if you don’t look too close, while simultaneously providing that all too important “stability” our “national interests” demand.
Take for example the recent ‘election” in the Ukraine which was brought about after a violent coup of U.S. state department backed neo-Nazis.
Take for example the recent “election” in Egypt, brought about by an even more brutal and violent military junta, backed by the state departments as well.
Does anyone here remember the one candidate “election” held in Yemen after popular uprising force our puppet dictator out of office? U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton congratulated the people of Yemen “on today’s successful presidential election“
Heck, we threw a couple fake elections over on this side of the pond, right here in our own “homeland” not that long ago. 2000? 2004? Help America Vote Act? Diebold? Supreme Court? Fake protesters in Florida? Ring any bells?
And just look at all that “freedom” those fake elections brought us.
Well today, our glorious leaders are calling for snap “elections” in Thailand in order to bring about a “return to democracy”
Now, notice, they aren’t telling the illegal junta to step down and return the country to the hands of the previous ELECTED government. Oh no. That won’t do.
What kind of ass-backwards regime change would that be?
