From Euphoria To Hysteria And Everything In Between!

By Emil van der Poorten –

Emil van der Poorten

My wait for yet another filthy, abusive SMS, from a member of the ersatz Rajapaksa diplomatic corps from “down under,” having proved futile, I am compelled to address what is our “rural reality” once more!  Not as exciting, I have to admit, but one that certainly needs some attention!

The shouting of commands at the Independence Day celebrations in Kegalle, was a precursor to the incongruity of a President greeting a now-disgraced Prime Minister, both pretending that container loads of hard drugs only exist in the minds of “the enemies of the state.” then oodles of top-end luxury limos disgorging their contents were followed by outriders in pith hats reminiscent of the times of the British Raj.

The “keynote address” at the celebration, was the now-tiresome one reminding everyone watching or listening-in that there were only two kinds of Sri Lankans – those supporting the government and those opposing its behavior.  With each passing year and each mouthing of this shibboleth, it attains an even more chilling tone, particularly given the recent fate of Mel Gunasekera, a business journalist, representing a foreign news agency whose bread and butter would, inevitably, have been journalism commonly described as “investigative.”   It is interesting that Mandana Ismail Abeywickrema was also working on a business-related story at the time her home was invaded, Frederica Jansz had provoked the ire of our current rulers by headlining a tale of significant financial loss, resulting in her having to bolt to the US and her predecessor, Lasantha Wickremetunga, was best known for his exposes of financial malfeasance which could have contributed to his (still-unsolved) killing with weapons normally reserved for the abattoir.

The weight that pronouncement – “those who are not for us are against the nation” – carries increases with the use of violence to suppress dissent.  This began with the killing at the Free Trade Zone demonstration against the attempt to hijack employees’ EPF contributions, through the killing of a fisherman protesting at the steep increase in the price of the fuel he needed to capture his quarry and the Weliweriya killing of unarmed (Sinhala) villagers asking for clean water and getting, instead, “hot lead.”  Most recently in that procession of iniquity, there were the “Six-gun Sam” shootings at Matara by a Sri Lankan Wyatt Earp, closely connected to the highest echelons of the government.

On every one of these occasions, the result has been the confirmation that the current government will do anything and everything it has to show that nobody and nothing is going to stand in the way of it or its friends.

Chilling? Yes, but one needs to face facts.

Employed in the imposition of the endless barrage of propaganda about the entire (white) world conspiring against a pristine Sri Lanka, the last bastion of Buddhism in the world is one of the largest armed forces in the world.  Many who disagree with the Government of Sri Lanka and the path down which it is (successfully) taking a whole nation do not seem to acknowledge what a very successful campaign this is proving to be. It caters unashamedly to its vote bank among the dominant Sinhala Buddhist community comprised, primarily, of relatively unsophisticated rural folk.  How else could one explain the issue of a blue thousand rupee note with the visage of an euphoric Mahinda Rajapaksa on one side and an unbelievably derivative depiction on the other?  I speak here of the plagiarisation of the iconic picture of US Marines raising the Stars and Stripes on Iwo Jima during World War II – probably the most famous battle picture of all time.  In this case, barely “photoshopped,” the place depicted is Toppigala, in the dry zone of Sri Lanka, with Sri Lankan troops raising the Lion Flag.  In most jurisdictions, this effort would have been greeted with gales of derision.  Not, however, in Sri Lanka where 90% of the population knew not where Toppigala was for starters and certainly wouldn’t have recognized Iwo Jima even if it happened to be the stray canine that bit them in the behind!

Unethical and crass propaganda in poor taste? Perhaps, but there is no denying its effectiveness.

That is but a small piece of the larger picture of building up the myth of the Master Race (and its Masters).

Incidentally, the head of state prostrating himself to kiss the earth of his motherland on arrival from overseas also had a much better- and internationally-known precedent when the Pope of the day did precisely that several decades ago.

You might well ask why the relatively-urbane and sophisticated middle-class of this country is either completely supportive of this lot or simply “stands and stares” while both the national treasury and the vault of democracy are being looted.  Simple my friends.  They’ve either never heard what Pastor Niemoller had to say about living under the Third Reich, or, more likely, choose to turn a Nelsonian eye on that reality while indulging their need to improve their own bank balances, justifying it with the old chestnut that “in the long run, we’ll all be dead, so we’d better make hay while the sun shines!”

The never-ending rants against the “international community,” aka the practicing democracies, has two successful outcomes – creating a national paranoia about a pending invasion akin to that of the Portuguese in the 16th Century and the Dutch and British thereafter and reinforcing the line that the Sinhala Buddhists are the master race and hence are generating this reaction from lesser humans.

There are also more gentle, though hardly less subtle, attempts to generate euphoria and even love.

The periodic Dansalas held wherever the President happens to be in residence are a source of amusement to those who figured they are too sophisticated to be bribed with food.  However, every time there is proof that there is, in fact, a “free lunch,” literally and metaphorically, the rural (and urban) multitudes flock to the caterers of the ruling clan.  Recently, one of our longest-serving employees could hardly constrain herself before bursting out with the news that the President had actually touched her son!

It seems that that young man’s brother-in-law was one of a group of medical support personnel at an army hospital who had been invited to Temple Trees.  This man had smuggled in his brother-in-law, of impressionable age and, when the President “went walk-about” he engaged those around him in conversation and “laid hands” on our young friend.  I use the term “laid hands” in all seriousness because this seemed to be what the young man had experienced complete with the “shivers” associated with such an act. That the whole family was “over the moon” about this occurrence was evident enough as was the distinct impression that rural Sri Lanka is not merely ready for the middle ages, it is already there!

Now that same family is bound for Jaffna where they will be given a conducted tour of what were, less than five years ago, the sites of the final battles against “the invaders.”  You want to bet that our “Normandy” will be shown as well as all the new Buddhist temples complete with pristine white dagobas which will be described as replacements for the religious buildings that were there before “the Tamils were brought to Jaffna to hoe the tobacco fields of the Dutch?”

That unsophisticated rural folk are given to sometimes irrational hero-worship is more than understandable.  However, the hosannas that our urban intelligentsia keep shouting ad nauseam at every mention of walking paths on which they don’t risk turning an ankle are a little less easy to fathom, particularly when the inter-locking stones come at the expense of essential health care and education systems.

Oh, well, the “total package” promises to establish violent and corrupt people in the seats of power for a very long time to come, unless, like the proverbial frog, their puffery leads to their exploding!

    It is really getting to you Emil. You don’t try to mask your class bias and cultural prejudice anymore. Setting aside your urbane pretensions, now you show your true face and attack the “unsophisticated rural folk.” Well they didn’t have the good fortune like you to be born hybrid, attend Trinity, then go to the West, collect some dollars and come back and pass off as somebody. They are what they are. But the rural Sinhalese people didn’t do anything wrong to you except they are the majority and now finally they are getting their say in the affairs of the country. Too bad Emil, that’s how the world works!

      Outrider:
      What a delightful surprise: opinion couched in civilized language! Or is the other kind reserved for the other pseudonyms you use?
      It’s hardly worth trying to convince someone like you that every word you utter is just a simple lie, either generated by ignorance or, more likely given those who “look after you,” simple unadulterated malice.
      Obviously, you and your ilk have never experienced the friendship and support of people living in rural Sri Lanka (or probably anywhere else in the world for that matter). And I’m being kind in giving you that excuse for your stupidity!

      Well OutRider, as an OutSider I muast say:

      1. I do not support this government which I consider to be fascist and see as likely to provoke a wave of fascism masquerding as anti imperialism which may very well with ‘shaitans’ assistance lead to a third world war.

      2. Having said that I agree that this clown on the side lines has a HUGE class bias and has no understanding of the horrible damage the class he identifies with has done, and the extent to which it is responsible for the situation that prevails today, by collaborating with the British Colonial Project.

      3. Clowns apart the rest of us have to take a look at ourselves and decide whether we want to remain part of the Global Human Community (GHC).

      4. If we do we have to accept its minimum requirement for membership, which is acceptance of the Doctrine of Human Rights (DHR).

      5. If we do not wish to continue as members of the GHC then we have to either make the government fall in line with the requirements of the GHC or elect one that is willing to do so.

      6. While doing so we have to keep an eye on the clowns who have a tendency to provoke actions prematurely which has earned them the name “Agents Provocateur”, and we are keeping a close eye on this particular Clown given his interesting ancestry (and its relationship with the working class on the plantations) and their history of clowning.

      7. I do not think that the ‘Development Activities” of the government is in any way representative of the rural community or that the rural community is “now finally they are getting (its) say in the affairs of the country”, to the contrary fascism has used the Sinhala Buddhist Ideology to seduce the population both rural as well as urban from peasant to crowing midget capitalist and for the first time since the end of the second world war to seize control of a state!. Now armed with this “sovereign State” fascism will quickly make allies amongst the oppressed by posing as their champion, split the Indian Army using Theravada Buddhism as a tool to do so, topple the complaisant Indian Political Establishment and bring to power an allied Fascist Tendency in India build an alliance with China and then my hearties the real ride will begin.

      8. I am not the only one who can see this and so there will probably be a response from those who do not like fascism and keeping in mind that fascism has never been destroyed from within we can expect DRONES TO FLY and a generation to be DECIMATED as the slate is wiped clean and a new administration put in place as happened in JAPAN.

    Good points by the writer and serves as a timely warning to Sri Lanka’s politicians not to whip up religious, nationalist, racist or ethnic hysteria for self-serving purposes. Emil, I am sorry you are receiving nasty SMSs from down under. Such people need to get a life and to do something positive. By the way, a few of your Burgher compatriots (a small handful only) down under have a nauseatingly ingrained inferiority complex vis-a-vis westerners and a superiority complex vis-a-vis Sinhalese and Tamils. Can you do an article about this curious phenomenon?

    • 6

      Of course he won’t! I doubt he’ll write an article of how Burghers used their European heritage to migrate down under when the White Australia Policy was prevalent. But I’m sure he’d write about the Sinhala only Policy!

      • 3
        1

        “Burghers used their European heritage “

        Rajan, they used their part-European heritage to migrate down under claiming that they were full-Europeans. Also, there was a strong element of sexism in it because the European ancestry had to come solely from the paternal side! The mother’s ancestry was irrelevant to them. Within some of these families, if anyone spoke of native or Ceylonese ancestry or culture in a positive light, they were quickly punished or made fun of and called names like “kussi amma” or “kolla”. To them, nothing positive could come out of native or Sinhala or Tamil culture. It was all to be erased in the fullness of time. Its a ludicrous claim if you see how most of these people look – yet some of the more gullible Australians believed it. Of course, people are free to identify with whatever culture they want. You can call yourself a green Martian if you want. Just don’t tell lies.

    Sri Lankans are a bunch of hypocrites. Nothing that money cannot buy. For some it is a pat on the childs cheek, for others a packet of Buth, for yet others, laptops, duty free vehicles, foreign jaunts, chairmanships, ministerships etc. In return they will worship maha rajanani, drink his serappu soup and turn a blind eye on all the corruption, looting and injustice that goes on.

    So there I was with my rudely cawing fellow Koha’s getting a bird’s eye view of our annual nostalgic commemoration. Reminding ourselves of the years we have been free of those evil white colonials who we allowed to walk in and run our affairs all those years ago (with the tacit help of a crop of our finest pliable ratemahataya’s). What a turn out, and MR cool didn’t disappoint with his spirited speech, giving the rapt audience a timely reminder of the unceasing need for vigilance against the evil foreigner, now invisible but waiting to divide and throw our island paradise, once again, into chaos. But never fear countrymen, I brought you the peace you enjoy and that is what I promise to keep – so help me God. Sixty six years and we now have a country divided but peaceful; in the town, the capable and the comfortable minority behind high walls and enjoying creature comforts as to the manor born, and in the villages, the grafting and the gullible majority scraping to get by but ever so grateful to the regime for keeping them safe from the evil suddha. Please don’t tell me how this story ends.

    crazyoldmansl:
    Interesting juxtaposition of affiliations/opinions here!
    First you say,
    “I do not support this government which I consider to be fascist and see as likely to provoke a wave of fascism masquerding as anti imperialism which may very well with ‘shaitans’ assistance lead to a third world war.”

    then it is,

    “and we are keeping a close eye on this particular Clown given his interesting ancestry (and its relationship with the working class on the plantations) and their history of clowning.”
    The “we,” even given the fact that the Alzheimer’s that you told me about must now be fairly advanced, sounds like a dead giveaway as to whose interests you are really looking after. And you have the gall to talk about “agents provocateur?” Give me a break!

      Take one. You are welcome. I know you are not even remotely clued in to what is going on. Yes I have all the gall required to take on the fascists and I do not like clowns getting in my way. Your blustering is very familiar to those who grew up on the plantations.

    If this guy lived in a first world country for several decades,one would have thought he would be above the level of the LTTE loving anti Sinhala Anti Buddhist brigades here.

    People who live in the first world, who are educated and well employed do not call the underprivileged . especially natives in their lands uneducated and ignorant, at least in the public domain.

    Mr Poorten in contrast, denigrate the simple poor Sinhala rural folk at every twist and turn simply because his ” relatively urban middle class’ mates can’t or don’t roll Rajapaksa,

    Shouldn’t the ilk of Mr Poorten do a soul search and see why the great majority of the inhabitants are backing the Rajapaksas, instead of calling them idiots.

    By the way what is the big deal about the rurals not knowing Iwo Jima, when Mr Poorten’s leaders in the Intelligentsia lot didn’t know Alimankada from Pamankada…

    Failing all else, off we go into the realm of deliberate misrepresentation! Why am I not surprised?

    I am hardly going to waste time on the subject of my own Sinhala rural, Buddhist roots to the likes of you, so let’s not go down that road, shall we? After all, this whole business of “you show me yours and I’ll show you mine” could be a little embarrassing to someone with your track record, don’t you think?

    By the way, what on earth does “can’t or don’t roll Rajapaksa” mean.

    P.S.
    I think it was Mr. Fowler who wrote a kind of primer on the use of English. May I suggest you pick up a copy? Given the evidence, it is something your “ilk” should have done a long time ago!

    Sumane and Crazy OM,

    Come on, guys let’s be a little more accommodating to Emil. After all the Burghers were such great lots and livened up our lives – didn’t they? Emil could have spent the evening of his life in Canada (is that right?) But he has chosen to come to his original home. And rather than live in Colombo where the action is – has chosen to live in the villages with the humble folk. Don’t let his “different” politics bother us. I admire his values and enjoy his writing. I want him to write more frequently – despite the threats
    from that spectacled tale-carrying looney now running riot Down Under.

      Thank you for the nice comment!

      One carping qualification, though. Neither I, nor the rest of the clan bearing the same last name, have ever classified ourselves as “Burghers” for the simple reason that the first van der Poorten who landed in Sri Lanka did so long after the Dutch had left and he was born in Brussels which, for the edification of the idiots who insist on taking what they think are “shots” at me, is not even in Holland!

      If what I write to CT does nothing else, it certainly brings to the surface the monumental stupidity of those who operate in the pay of The Regime and insist on displaying their ignorance, pretending that it is erudition of some kind!

Those who saw the first golden light of day from the bosom of ML and those whose loved ones are buried in her warm earth get a special hug. Sadly, there are among us, too many unable to find the generosity of spirit to listen to, leave aside accepting, a different point of view. Alas, that may be part of our national malaise.

    At least Crazy, Jimmy and I take time to respond.

    His great Buddies in the Diaspora don’t even give him a “like” going by the tally.

    Poor Poorten must be spending long hours preparing these diatribes against our native inhabs.

    Just imagine how bad he must be feeling when the diaspora who normally would pay FX for this sort of attacks to demolish our image , totally ignore him.

    BTW, I love Burghers, They are a great lot then.. I mean most of them although they used to call us Yakkos.

    I didn’t mind it at all . The chicks were great,

      Ceylonese are too easily divided. These people are natives like most of us. Why draw all these petty distinctions? I am sure Mr Vander P will agree with me.

      Sumanasekera, I used to hang out at the pansalas to pick up easy chicks dressed in white sarees that used to come out of the bhavana sessions from under the Bodhi trees. Forget about those “neocolonialist” churches. You are hanging out at the wrong places to pick up chicks pal. Hope the church rejections didn’t scar you.

      “””Crusade wars, with Portuguese, Dutch and English guns and swords and bayonets killing millions of local natives for fear mongering and genocide””” Strawb Doosra is a little lax with the maths here. Millions? I think not! Anyway, the colonial masters crept in with a little bit o’help from the RATEMAHATAYA’S* our own flesh and blood guarantors of good order among the natives. Amazing, to think that a small number of foreigners with few guns were able to subjugate us for centuries. (*RATEMAHATAYA’s – tribal leaders like the Bandaranaikes, Jayawardenas et al who took the irresistible bangles, baubles and promises of the foreigner in exchange for the quiescence of our own noble blue-black native blood. What a horrible thought – shafted by our own!)

        Agree with you here. There is no democracy in the country today.

        Today, ours can no means be named as democractic.
        Those who start attacking the races should be made very clear that we the people cant achieve peace and harmony so long our lankens attack their communities one another.

        I simply believe wrong practices of buddhism could be the main reason some to end up with what they are today; they seem to BUILD up mindsets against muslims or non-buddhists in general. Buddha has not asked anyone to do so.If these people´s attitudes are shaped up by BBS or other like minded reglious forces. No wonder these adherents do behave so. Today practising buddhism in the country is not what you learnt in the Daham school or school.

        By listening to Udaya G lately, I felt, how can he ever be a buddhist while he goes on doing nothing against the feudal system of his beloved leader MR. People to contribute these sums for his campaign is not acceptable at all. Are those lanken that stupid ?

    Mr. Emil van Pooten, you are nothing more than a racist old white supremacist. Do you really expect simple Sri Lankan villagers to know about this Pastor Niemoller? Your attitude towards the rural Sinhala Buddhist is appalling and does little to belie your true thoughts. If you don’t feel comfortable living in SL, please bugger off back to Belgium.
