You wouldn’t know what to do with democracy if it came up and kicked you in the posteriors!

 

Hello Skinlovers!

 

This was posted on FB by Ro’ya and I saw some of the replies and that inspired me:

 

 

وزير الداخلية مازن الساكت يخير الإعلاميين بين ممارسة المهنة أو السير بالمظاهرات

 

هاظ الكلام الصحيح …لانوا بالفتره الاخيره ..كان هناك تحيز واضح من قبل بعض الاعلاميين للاعتصامات وغابت بشكل واضح النزاهه المهنيه …عن الصحفيين ………..بتمنى من كل صحفي شريف يخاف على زطنه يوصل الحقيقه ويبين هذول الاعتصامات شو بدهم لانهم بدوروا على خراب البلد وفتنتوا……………وتسل​م ايدك يا معالي الوزير…….

  • i نعم كلامه صحيح ومن غير المنطقي ما يقوم به الصحفيين من تجييش
  • عددهم كان في اعتصام الجمعة اكثر من 250 يعني اكثر من نصف عدد المعتصمين


  • أردنية والفخر ليا شو يا وزير الداخلية سامع بالمثل الي بحكي : اذا بدك تحيرهم خيرهم
  • بلال محمد هذه وصمه عار على جبين الحكومه ان تقوم بضرب الصحفين ولايحق لا احد ضرب صحفي لمجرد انه يسير بالمظاهره وعلى الوزير ان يكف عن المهاترات السياسيه بينما يدعي الديقراطيه
  •  اقسم بالله ان رجل ابن رجل وشعبنا بدو هيك رجال واللي مش عاجبوا السجن داروا

And my inspiration to write the following came from the previous! 😀

The minister of interiors has threatened the journalists, stop demonstrating or lose your jobs… WTF?

First of all he is under the misconception that all the journalists are his employees (maybe JTV is but no one else).How dare he? He is NOT the final say. Freedom of the press and speech (O I forgot it is only allowed when permitted) I once wrote an article entitled “Freedom of speech. Thank you for giving it to us. Can I use it now… Says it all.I am not one to endorse hysterical change at superspeed light because that will always blow up in your face, I advocate slow change. I am one of those who observes and shakes his head thinking what mess we would be in if they got their way.But on the other hand I do not applaud the heavy i-handed and idiotic way the protests were handled. Really you give out distinct vests to the journalists and then the Gendarmerie targets them specifically.. What the hell?

We keep on hearing piecemeal repititions of “human rights” & “democracy” and yet it is all talk because we still have a bunch of fossilised relics in the parliament who still can’t get their act together. The king ordered reforms, so what are you guys waiting for? That he will change his mind? Well newsflash! He will not! He knows it is now more than ever essential to reform the structure, a good way would be to stabilise the whole trend of changing prime ministers and ministers like a woman changes her outfits…Freedom of speech is great but it also calls to mind the fact that with freedom comes responsibility. You cannot just spout any nonsense and think you are right without reprisals. You have an opinion that is fine but it should also be based on fact not hearsay. Also bloggers have been given a far more important psoition and they use it irresponsibly! I am not going to listen to any random idiots rantings about politics and what should be done just because they have a pc and wi-fi connection. If you do not know history and read up on other stuff than your baseless press releases go to hell you are blowing smoke rings out of your arse as far as I am concerned.I want fair and non-biased coverage. I want intelligent rhetoric. Not some imbecilic teenageers ranting at the government because he doesn’t know better and has seen or read something on the ne, and without thinking repeats it. You deserve to be locked away if you sit there in your little corner standing on your electronic soapbox and preaching to the perverted. That just doesn’t fly with me.Either you read up on the effects of revolution and then look at the structure of our country without comparing it to others, we have a social structure that does not allow for Revolution, why? Because we have the tribes! We have the North South disputes! We have Israel ready to pounce on the other side of the border! We have the Palestinian Jordan conflict (though it may be simmering under the surface)! And so many more petty inconsequential troubles… That is why revolution is NOT the way to go.

So give me change but give it to me slowly. Give me reforms that are well-thought out! Give me a stable government and country. And give me peace of mind and stop screwing around with my country. And you people in government remember: YOU ARE CARETAKERS OF THE COUNTRY NOT ITS OWNERS! SO RESPECT YOUR CITIZENS!

And i stand by my theory that we wouldn’t know what to do with true democracy if it came up and kicked us in the arse… Because we are too emotional, hysterical and filled with nonsensical propaganda from all sides concerned.Give me change but ever so slow…

These are few comments I put in answer to a post I had:
I mean both sides should behave in a civil manner!

Look around and see what are the viable alternatives to this so-called change, Moslem brotherhood, tribal & anarchy. No thank you! Not for me and not in my name, call me complacent but I prefer the slow change to the rampant hysteria we Arabs are so fond of. 😀

Agreed, but that said our situation here is a bit different than over there Karima (by the way how is it going over there? Things settled yet?).
Our social structure does not allow for that kind of change (like I said the tribes and everything else) in the speed they are trying to force it. That is why I am against the protesting too much, but on the other hand the exaggerated use of force against the protesters is also unacceptable.

O dear see I am against excessive force. As I am against hasty decisions made in the heat of hysteria (talking about Jordan here not your neck of the woods) Wish you all the best dear Tunis.
