Bass' compare 'messy' USA elections to Zim's rigged elections  is Antoinette's 'eat cake!'
Published: 04 September 2018 (263 Views)
"Qu'ils mangent de la brioche!" (Let them eat cake!) is what Queen Marie Antoinette is said to have said on learning that the peasants had no bread. USA Congresswoman Karen Bass' callous indifference to the tragic situation in Zimbabwe reminded of Queen Antoinette!

"The courts have ruled, that is the process, and so to not recognize him (Emmerson Mnangagwa) as president, I don't know what that means," the US Congresswoman Karen Bass. She was arguing Zimbabweans to accept the results of the recent elections and the Con-Court ruling on the matter.

"I don't like our current president (Donald Trump) and we had a very messy process here in the United States and many people questioned the legitimacy."

What every thinking Zimbabwean would very disappointing here is that Congresswoman Bass should even want to compare the elections in America with those in Zimbabwe. Our modern day Queen Antoinette, has just been in Zimbabwe to observe the elections there and thus had seen with her own eyes the political reality of how Zanu PF had blatantly rigged the elections! How anyone can still compare what happened in Zimbabwe to USA beggars belief?

There was no free public media in Zimbabwe; as an American used to a free press and freedom of expression, one would have expected her to pick that straight away.

She should have quickly learnt that 2 to 3 million Zimbabweans in the diaspora were denied the vote for no better reason other than that Zanu PF feared most of them would not vote for it. Congresswoman would have known that this was one of the demands Zimbabwe was asked to meet for the targeted sanctions imposed on some Zanu PF leaders to be lifted.


"My key findings was that the process appeared to be very well organized, it was peaceful. I will tell you that I was envious of an 85% turnout in an election which I certainly have not seen in the United States," she commented.

Congresswoman Bass must have known that Zimbabwe had gone into the elections with no clean and verified voters' roll although this is a legal requirement in the country. An analysis of the election results shows there was multiple voting. It is near impossible to prove this or an of the other vote rigging schemes with no voters' roll, the smoking gun, which is why the authorities did not want one produced.

Zanu PF has been rigging elections for the last 38 years with tragic economic and political consequences there for all to see. Unemployment has soared to dizzying height of 90% and ¾ of our people now live on US$1.00 or less a day. The regime has murdered over 30 000 innocent Zimbabweans to establish and retain the de facto one-party dictatorship the country is under today. By blatantly rigging these elections President Mnangagwa and his junta have just confirmed there will be no meaningful political and economic change. And USA Congresswoman Karen Bass expect the people of Zimbabwe to accept the rigged elections as fait accompli, after all she has accepted President Donald Trump!

Oh by the way, the America government and people are leaving not even one stone unturned in their resolve to find out  if the Russians helped President  Trump win the 2016 elections and thus interfered in American democratic process. Three cheers to a healthy and functional democracy!

In Zimbabwe we KNOW Zanu PF blatantly rigged these elections and has been doing so for donkeys years. Zanu PF is a party of corrupt and tyrannical vote rigging thugs; Queen cum Congresswoman Bass want us Zimbabweans to just roll over and accept another blatantly rigged elections and all the economic and political misery that follow.

It is hard enough to have to bear the economic hardship and the political oppression but add to it the patronising indifference of these Queen Marie Antoinette ruling elite and it is easy to see why she and her kind inflamed the French peasants!
