The US Is Now a Banana Republic

The Republican attempt to impeach Joe Biden when even they admit that they have no evidence that he did what they’re charging him with is corrupt as Hell, and it’s straight out of banana republics and African and Arab dictatorships. What they do in those countries is as soon as a new government, usually a rightwing one in Latin America, comes into power, the first thing they do is go after their political enemies in the opposing party.

In some cases as in Guatemala, El Salvador, and Colombia, the first thing the new rightwing government did was send out death squads to murder the opposition leaders and supporters. In the case of Guatemala and Colombia, they were still murdering them even decades later.

The message is clear. If you elect a leftwing government, it will be overthrown by a rightwing coup and then the new government will go after the leaders and supporters of the overthrown Left government. Sort of makes you not want to vote for the Left, huh?

In most cases they are not so murderous and instead they often try them on fake or politically motivated charges. They even imprison them.

In many cases, the lead figures of the opposition flee the country after the new party comes in. That’s what happened in Ecuador when this sleazy rightwinger pretending to be a socialist won. First thing he did was go after the leadership of the former Leftist Correa government, who all fled the country.

Erdogan is doing the same Third World crap in Turkey, but bizarrely, the majority of Turks are down with this. Turkey has been a pathological and very fascist country for a long time. Remember that phrase?

Turkey is the sick man of Europe.

There ya go.

Erdogan is doing the same Third World crap in Turkey, but bizarrely, the majority of Turks are down with this. Turkey has been a pathological and very fascist country for a long time. Ataturkism was always a sort of secular fascism. Now Erdogan has introduced an Islamic fascism.

Sisi did something similar to the Muslim Brotherhood government figures after his coup. Their leader ended up dying in prison.

The Palestinians have been doing something similar. After Hamas won an election in the Gaza Strip in 2006, the first thing they did was go after the former PLO government. They killed a number of them, sometimes throwing them off rooftops and they put a lot of others in jail or prison.

Something similar is going on in the West Bank, where the Palestinian Authority throws Hamas members of people suspected of being pro-Hamas in jail, where they are typically beaten and tortured. By the way, Abbas’ PA won’t have an election in the West Bank in part because he might win. Actually, Marwan Bargouti of the PLO would probably win, but he’s in prison, so I don’t see how he would run the government.
