We, Oromo people as a nation, as an organization and individuals are fighting to stop killings of Oromo’s by the name of one Ethiopia, one culture and one language while millions of Oromo peoples are sacrificed and still bleeding for these empire. Our question is where will be the extremity of these double sacrifice under one empire on one nation.
Today, all nations in Ethiopian empire appeal to decide the content and diversity of the spices in their kitchen. But the deep state secret power (TPLF) published the new cooking book under the title of “medemer” in the name of Dr. Abiy. We as an Oromo knows what love is, what forgiveness is, what solidarity is that is why Dr. Abiy uses his nations quality where he come from. Oromo people are dying for more than 120 years because of those blessed qualities. So, we call it this is wrong diagnosis and your treatment in the name of development is also inappropriate and wrong time and place. Our disease is intimidation, humiliation, eviction, imprisonment, torture, shooting pregnant women and death. The diagnosis is right to self-determination and the treatment is freedom. Later on the development will come.
Oromo nations struggle is for “right to self-determination” in order to leave a “legacy of peace and amity” for future generations and not a “toxic harvest” of conflict and animosity. Oromo people have myriad intellectuals, uncountable hero’s and full of resources. But all those knowledge and gifts could not prevent us from humiliation, eviction, imprisonment, torture and death. What is getting wrong?????? We as a human being are often taught to look for the beauty in all things, so in finding it, the layman asks the philosopher while the philosopher asks the photographer.” In this world, we the Oromo people have no friends to asks about the solution except ourselves. Let us look the Obama phenomena in Oromia and the underlying poison.
When president Obama was elected the overwhelming majority of African-Americans cheered and prayed for him. His inauguration was a signal moment in black history. Obama swept into office with a reputation as an intellectual politician with vision. Part of the reason had to do with his memoir, Dreams from My Father, his campaign book, The Audacity of Hope, and a March 18, 2008, address, “A More Perfect Union,” in which he explained his relationship with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the Chicago preacher who had denounced the status quo in memorably inflammatory fashion: “God Damn America!”
The speech was immediately celebrated, with some likening it to Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address or Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. These gushings were a vivid symptom of Obamamania. For in fact “A More Perfect Union” is not a speech for the ages; it was simply a tactical intervention aimed at quelling whites’ discomfort about Obama’s long association with a radical, left-wing minister. In neither its rhetoric nor its analysis nor its prescriptions did the speech offer anything beyond a carefully calibrated effort to defuse a public relations crisis. “In the end,” Obama declared, “what is called for is nothing more, and nothing less than … that we do unto others as we would have them do unto us. Let us be our brother’s keeper. … Let us be our sister’s keeper. Let us find that common stake we all have in one another, and let our politics reflect that spirit as well.”
Obama said, after all, that the subject of race was too important to ignore and implicitly promised to confront it if he won the presidency. He has not. He has avoided the subject assiduously. And when he has addressed it, he has typically done so only obliquely. “Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago” and similar signature musings over the Obama years do not explain much, do not promise much and do not tell us where we should go from here. For many African-Americans, he has been a hero—but also a disappointment. On critical matters of racial justice, he has posited no agenda, unveiled no vision, set forth no overarching mission to be accomplished. Take criminal justice. Nothing in the day-to-day lives of black Americans is more menacing than their vulnerability to criminality on the one hand and mistreatment by police on the other. For many African-Americans, Obama has been a hero—but also a let-down.
Prime minister Dr. Abiy phenomena resembles former president Obama insurgency. Majority of Ethiopianist group loved and prayed for him, his speeches sounds hope, enter the oval office as an intellectual politician with vision like other Oromo’s before him (but they never benefit Oromo peoples), he is polite and giving TPLF criminals pension instead of bring them to justice. The question is how comes dr. Abiy to this stage? Like former president Obama avoided racial justice Dr. Abiy has too avoided the subject of qeerroo’s and the question of Oromo people totally and afraid to call them in name.
Oromo people have suffered enormous under the Ethiopian empire. We were humiliated, evicted, forced to change our name and our cities name, imprisoned, tortured, mutilated, hanged and murdered. Every aspect of evil atrocities has done on us. In order to halt all those unhuman atrocities and to regain our freedom we fought and still fighting fearlessly for more than 120 years. The Ethiopian empire dictators are master to impede the Oromo peoples struggle for freedom on the denouement minute. History is full of evil dictators, and while they had their share of bad qualities, it’s undeniable they were efficient at getting things done. Here’s what we can learn from them, despite their evil nature.
Here are the TPLF deep state skills guided by western political ingenuity (Former president Obama said recently in his speech in south Africa, Politicians are always a liar but the difference is admitting process).
Dictators manipulate people when their willpower is weak, they get rid of close friends, and they give rousing speeches that can convince people to do just about anything. Here’s six things, both good and evil, we can learn from the ways dictators have handled situations.
- Force Difficult Decisions on People When Their Willpower is Weak: Cuban dictator Fidel Castro loved 4 a.m. meetings where he’d often get people out of bed so he could put them at a distinct disadvantage. Russian dictator Joseph Stalin would also use this tactic, even meeting Winston Churchill late at night to draw up plans to attack Germany. TPLF is also using this tactic by calling gimgema after guiding OPDO leaders to steal and kill.
- Create a “Five-Year Plan” for Personal Goals: Popularized by Joseph Stalin, the Five-Year Plan was an economic plan that sought to bring about a specific end goal like industrialization, lower unemployment, and general readiness for possible problems. On top of being embraced in Soviet Russia, the idea of a Five-Year Plan was used in The People’s Republic of China, Cuba, Pakistan, Vietnam, and others. While your five-year plan will likely be less ambitious than most dictator’s, the idea itself is still a solid one. In fact, we’ve talked about making a five-year financial plan before, and “where do you see yourself in five years?”
Here are some elements to think about when making this sketch:
What will your job be like?
What will your family be like?
What will your physical appearance be like?
What will your home be like?
What will a typical day be like?
What will you be looking forward to?
What will your social circle look like?
This the master tactic of TPLF in the name of economic era and the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam to divert the people attention from freedom struggle, from democratic rule and from rule of law. For example look at the recent game of evil politics how many empty political parties are return back home to enrich themselves while the real political party that carries the peoples question like OLF is hunted down like foxes. Look at the empty projects created for qeerroo’s in order to divert their attention from the fundamental question (right to self-determination) to prodigious appetite to eat.
- Purge Threats to Your Power: In order to hold onto power, a dictator often needs to get rid of threats. This means purging your closest friends and advisors when they get too close to you or you feel like they want your power. The threat alone makes those outside the circle vie for power and attention, while the inner circle is stuck sucking up to you.
Nearly every dictator uses this tactic to some extent, but Fidel Castro and Peru’s Alberto Fujimoro were especially good at it. As Steven Levitsky points out in the Journal of Democracy, Fujimori is most famous for his self-coup in 1992 where he closed Congress, suspended the constitution and got rid of the judiciary so that he could take control.
In their book The Dictator’s Handbook: Why Bad Behavior is Almost Always Good Politics, authors Bruce Bueno de Mesquita and Alastair Smith outline this idea as “Rule 1: Keep your winning coalition as small as possible.”
TPLF is going to start purging the inner circle within short period of time by calling suicide or self-coup. Dr. Abiy and Mr. Lemma will be the first victim. But until they are diverting our youths (qeerroo’s) sacrifice, keeping OLF outside and killing their own peoples inclusive the pregnant women and children they will move around as living dead.
- Embrace Your “Cult of Personality: The cult of personality is a well-known dictator trick. The idea is to present yourself as the most amazing thing possible. To do this, dictators would pick up ridiculous habits, plaster their photos all over the country, or even give themselves nicknames. The most prominent (and possibly over-the-top) example of was North Korea’s Kim Jong-il, aka, the Supreme Leader of North Korea. Jong-il’s cult of personality rose to the point where, according to author’s Chol-hwan Kang and Pierre Rigoulot in the their book, The Aquariums of Pyongyang: Ten Years in the North Korean Gulag, people actually believed that Jong-il could control the weather with his outfits. This is common practice amongst dictators. Romanian communist dictator Nicolae Ceaușescu gave himself the title, “The Genius of the Carpathians,” Italy’s Benito Mussollini made himself look taller by only allowing pictures from certain angles, Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi only employed female bodyguards known as the “Amazonian Guard”.
- Give Direct, Powerful Speeches: By a lot of accounts, Germany’s Adolf Hitler was one of the best public speakers in dictator history. At least part of that was due to his timing. Before Hitler started to take power, public speaking was often an intellectual thing, filled with complex, lecture-like readings. Hitler’s performance, in contrast, was excited, emotive, and filled with slogans. Meles Zenawi Speech at a TPLF Rally. He boastfully declared that he feels proud to be a descendent of the “golden Tigreans” unlike the rest of us, “riffraff” in Ethiopian empire.”
- Learn From Experiences, Not Books: The strongest and longest lasting dictators embraced the idea of “practice makes perfect”, and put themselves on the front lines at some point in order to gain experience. Julius Caesar, for instance, fought on the front lines with soldiers, slept in the same beds, and learned from them before coming up with the quote, “Experience is the teacher of all things.” Napoleon Bonaparte, of course, did the same thing as he worked his way through the French Revolution (before eventually installing himself as a dictator). Vladimir Lenin was extremely well read, but still spent his time practicing his craft, writing pamphlets, and talking with his people. Mao took this a step further and used his peasant upbringing not just as an excuse not to shower, but also as fuel for his control over peasants.
TPLF is digging his hole inside Tigray by opening new project in the name of Tigrai based project (TBP) while distributing chaos and unrest around Oromia by liyyu police of Abdi Illey in east and west Oromia, by individuals with prodigious appetite in central Oromia and by Berhanu Jula in west Oromia.
My people, we have never demanded somebody’s resources, we have never harassed anybody because of his race, his nation, his religion, we have never humiliated somebody because of his weight or length or language, we have never tortured and killed peoples because of their political affiliation but every evil acts have been done on us because of our Oromummaa stand. In my opinion the only way to eliminate all those evil atrocities is keeping Oromumaa alive. So, every Oromo whether in the enemy camp or in the Oromo camp you have full responsibility and obiligation to work on the Oromo unity and Oromo people interest. In order to reach our goal, you will not need a number but a letter (in other words service, commitment and sacrifice).
