Gotler Or Hitler, Two Sides Of The Same Coin

By Vishwamithra

“Democracy; the fools have a right to vote. Dictatorship; the fools have a right to rule” ~Bertrand Russell 

Gotler - Facebook meme

Gotler – Facebook meme

The whole of Sri Lankan society, at least the rumor-prone Colombo pukka sahibs, went berserk when they heard a ‘sermon’ of some sort from a so-called highly-placed Buddhist Monk of the Asgiriya Chapter asking a notorious sibling of Mahinda Rajapaksa to take control of the country and rule like Hitler, who is really the personification of ‘man’s inhumanity to man’. 

A widely read online news site reported thus: ‘Venerable Vendaruwe Upali Thero, the Anunayaka of the Asgiriya Chapter delivering an anusasana (sermon) on the occasion of an almsgiving marking the 69th birthday of Gotabaya Rajapaksa said that he should opt for military rule if this is what is necessary to build the country. Venerable Upali, noting that Gotabhaya is referred to as a Hitler, suggested that if that is the case he should be one and build the nation. ‘What we need is a leadership that has the blessings of Mahinda Rajapaksa and is linked with Buddhism, the Buddhist Order and the Sinhalese. We can see that the law has completely broken down. We need a leader who shows fidelity to the doctrine (dahami naayakayek),’ Venerable Upali also said.’

This Buddhist Monk has swept the very basic principle of the four sublime states of Karuna, Metta, Mudita and Upekkha taught by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha, off the floor. In terms of the interpretation contained in the book published in 1994 by Buddhist Publication Society authored by Nyanaponika Thera, ‘these four attitudes are said to be excellent or sublime because they are the right or ideal way of conduct towards living beings (sattesu samma patipatti). They provide, in fact, the answer to all situations arising from social contact. They are the great removers of tension, the great peace-makers in social conflict, and the great healers of wounds suffered in the struggle of existence. They level social barriers, build harmonious communities, awaken slumbering magnanimity long forgotten, revive joy and hope long abandoned, and promote human brotherhood against the forces of egotism’. This is an absolute denunciation of the sermon preached by the Asgiriya Chapter Anunayaka. Something is grievously wrong. And it is both in the content of the call for military rule as well as the process involved in making such a grotesque call a reality.

If any reasonable man or woman thought that the cultural decline in our society is limited to the lay society, then think again. A high ranking Monk in the Buddhist order, while being enrobed in the usual saffron robe, has decided to wrap himself in the more expansive Nazi flag. Maybe the Swastika, the Nazi emblem, which in fact is a motif associated with ancient Asian religious thought, has taken hold of the personality of this ill-informed Monk. 

But in a more realistic context of modern Sri Lankan politics, this degradation of religious thought signals a more sinister-looking recess of wise and intelligent discourse amongst the general public in Sri Lanka. On the one hand are the likes of Gnanasara, now an ‘ex-Buddhist Monk’, whose religious standing is increasingly looking to be a matter of the past and on the other are these Buddhist Monks such as Vendaruwe Upali Thero, posing as representatives of a more traditional and orthodox teachings of Buddhism preaching a military rule in a country whose people’s commitment to democracy, freewill and the fundamental human rights has time after time been proven beyond a shadow of suspicion and ambiguity.

In modern day politics such a statement cascading from the lips of any person is purported to be a result of an orchestrated piece of aggressive kind of public relations. But what is even more dangerous is if the prelate’s words were a true enunciation of authentic beliefs held by him. Nothing is more dangerous and outrageously harmful than a believer who thinks that he is always right in his decisions and also morally righteous. This self-righteousness-belief renders him to be an island unto himself, making him ridiculously susceptible to a self-destroying bubble and that bubble is a creation of his own loyal cohorts and himself.

‘Gotler’ belongs in that self-defeating bubble. He dwells more in his own comforts zones making sure that wherever he goes is surrounded by his henchmen who benefitted immensely during his brother’s regime. After being alleged of most heinous crimes, trying to preach justice and fair-play is like Sri Lankans were born only after the demise of the Rajapaksa rule. Playing the victim is always the sign of a weak person. The best example is the current US President Donald Trump. After inflicting most unspeakable insults on his opponents, when he is being treated the same way, the bully reacts as if he has been victimized by his antagonists. But the tragedy is, that card carries, especially before a gullible audience, albeit in the short run, a lot of positive marks for the man or woman who plays it. ‘Gotler’ may have chosen to play that card and it is the responsibility of those who will pass judgment on his whims and fancies, come election day. 

Sitting tightly in their comfortable armchairs with their Smartphone in one hand and a glass of expensive whiskey in the other, some pukka sahibs venture out to compare ‘Gotler’ to a Messiah to come. These lotus eaters know quite well that they stand to make enormous profits on unsolicited government tenders over some of which this ‘Gotler’ character presided over during that Rajapaksa regime. If democracy is government of the people, by the people and for the people, any regime at whose helm ‘Gotler’ potentially would reside, would be a government of the few, by the few and for the few. That ‘few’ would be so a miniscule few, one would not be able to find them in the rural hamlets; they don’t exist in the suburban cities, nor would they be found living among the average wage earner. That ‘few’ are essentially a privileged few, living in Colombo and in some selected provincial centers; hosted by Gotler’s wealthy henchmen, they were at cocktail parties, meandering with their hors d’oeuvres and Champaign. This is what Sri Lanka is inviting back with recurring regularity, should they decide to even entertain ‘Gotler’s’ nomination for the prime job in Sri Lanka.

Hitler too had a hand in developing Germany. As per Wikipedia, ‘the Great Depression was the worst economic slump in the history of the industrialized world, lasting from 1929 to 1939. It began after the stock market crash of October 1929, which sent Wall Street into a panic and wiped out millions of investors’. Nevertheless, Hitler is the last scoundrel if any political leader wishes to compare himself with. If ‘Gotril’ desired to wear that dishonorable insignia, let him do that. But what one must be alarmed is the fact that a Buddhist Monk, for that matter a prelate in one of the two leading Chapters of the Order, deliberately chose to deliver this unholy discourse.

Usually preaching from the platform of the temple of the Tooth Relic, the highest Temple of all Buddhists in the world, is considered sublimely truthful and wholly compassionate. No words, which are more shameful and debasing of the true teachings of the Great Teacher, Siddhartha Gautama Buddha, have come out from either of these Chapters, Malwatte and Asgiriya. Yet given the current context of political volatility and short shelf life of the voters’ memory, it is imprudent to make any wild predictions, leave alone intelligent forecasts, as to how the general public in Sri Lanka would answer a call to Hitler-like rule in peaceful Pearl in the Indian Ocean.

Hitler and his military rule, the ensuing Holocaust, persecution of Jews and his other political, social and ethnic opponents might be totally new to the current younger generation. As Bill Clinton’s chief strategist said in 1992, ‘it’s the economy stupid’. As far as the Parliamentary Elections are concerned, if no immediate remedies are forthcoming, a change of government is well in the cards. However, Presidential Elections are a completely new proposition. Time and again it has been proven that no person could be elected President unless he or she secures an overwhelming majority of the minority vote. As has been penned countless times in this column, if one of the Rajapaksa or any of his cohorts is to be elected, they need to obtain more than 64% of the Sinhalese Buddhist voter base in the country. Against a backdrop of vastly polarized voting public, it is rather improbable that the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP), Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) or any Rajapaksa cohort would obtain 64% of that segment of the voting population.

Whichever way the trumps fall, it is an uphill task for a non-UNP candidate to rise to the seat of Presidency unless Ranil Wickremesinghe chooses to commit political hara-kiri by being so lukewarm about the atrocities committed by the previous regime headed by the Rajapaksa Family. But there are no guarantees that Ranil would not continue on this suicidal path. That, my friends, would be an appalling tragedy.

      Vishwa: US citizen Gotler is the CIA’s Manchurian Candidate for Prez of Lanka.
      You are beating a dead horse and show your intellectual bankrupcy constantly harping on Gota. Pl. Stop wasting time on Gota and religious identity politics as he will not win without minority vote.

      Your Gota narrative is a distraction from the Corruption epidemic (pay to play in Washington Pandmic), that is the root cause of poverty and income inequality and Lanka’s debt trap which is crashing the rupee and distracting us from Bondscam Ranil’s corruption racket (also with US /IMF/MCC backing), which is cause of Lanka’s ‘economic crisis’.

        It is time more and more began discussing the undesirable effects of “religious identity politics” because it is time that right thinking people said their piece on what is wrong, loud and clear.

          Call him by whatever name you like but a serial-killer is a serial-killer

          The choice for the people is simple ……….. whether they want a murderer as their president?

          Can’t make it any simpler than that.

        Kalupahana
        Your most valid point had been overlooked over and over again.
        ” Lanka’s debt trap which is crashing the rupee and distracting ” all other issues leading to economic crisis etc etc.
        This is the style of Srilankans to remain in ” Denial” mode. Never need the necessity to solve the problems and move forward.
        The word “Denial” is the foremost reason for our country plunging into anarchy and dark ages.
        There’s no will to solve any problems other than conniving to distract the whole lot of burning issues of the country which needs addressing ASAP.

        Kalupahana ,

        Your type of naivety had helped MR to come to power in 2005 . Do you even know How did MR come to power in 2005 ? He masterminded the strategy of boycotting N/E votes by bribing Praba , Don’t try to play with fire mate , Gota is not a person whom you can mess with , if Gota won the presidential election , SL would take SL back to stone age Gota is not an average Srilankan , he is a psychopath who would never take ‘no’ as an answer , he would destroy the social fabric of SL and would introduce military rule to SL if he was selected as the President . As to ‘ Hamuduruwo’ most of them have no clue as to what’s happening in SL , they just watch prime time news and listen to their ‘Dayakayos’ . Most of SL main stream media are either owned by Rajapakse lackeys or Good governance haters ;hence, no one can expect a balance media coverage from them . as to your other so called conspiracy theories are only good for Dimwits like you .

          Well Said, Sri Lal…. its wonderful to know that there are people with strong thinking power, like yourself, who can identify the common enemy to all of us…. the oppressed mass. The enemy (Govigama Mafia Elites) are using all the tactics in their book to keep the Sri Lankans divided on caste, creed and colour. This is their survival kit.

      Whoever invented this “GOTLER” thing must be named for the Nobel Peace Prize nomination list….. See, the Hitler option chosen by the Buddhist hierarchy is a very serious one and it is made out of desperation, for they cannot see the ANTI-ISLAM/Muslim pogrom is reaching the levels of the Burmese or the MYANMAR style genocidal levels. The deep hearted aspiration of the Sinhala Racist block (Backed by the GOVIGAMA Ruling Elite Force) is to see MUSLIMS are killed and raped in thousands as the GOVI MEDIA (Lankadeepa, Divaina, Derana, TNL, Swarnavahini, Mawbima, Rivira, Hiru etc,etc) through its wide scale propaganda campaign launched throughout a span of 02 decades long, DEMONIZING the Muslims and creating a climate of fear among the Sinhala dumb population which is expected to becoming a RWANDA STYLE killings to happen. Dumbo Monk Upali is not a fool to ask GOTA to become a Hitler to save the nation. He knows exactly what can be achieved if he becomes a GOTLER through HITLER METHODS. The Sri Lankan MUSLIMS will be the JEWS of SRI LANKA under him. Already, many racist Sinhala cheap incapable vendors (so called Businessmen) have resorted to use TERROR tactics to destroy business competition coming from the Muslim traders. Dumbo Monk Upali seems to be impatient as the DIGANA riots did not continue to an islandwide campaign even with the help Mahason/BBS got from the state (Sira/Ranil/Gota). It was seem to be a CONTROLLED POGROM launched by the SL State. Because, the GOVI hegemony cannot run smoothly without the Middle East money pouring into the coffer. Any counter action move made by the Muslim countries will throw the GOVIGAMA BEGGARS into the street to run for their Pindapatha to IMF/WB, and to anyone seeking help.

        You Muslims are now crying but aided and abetted the Sinhalese in the Eelam Tamil genocide, despite being ethnically Tamil, in the name of Islam and a false Arab origin. You thought the Sinhalese will reward you backstabbers for role in the Tamil genocide and war crimes but they were only using you and had no intention of giving you any rewards. In fact their hatred for the Muslims is far greater than their hatred for the Tamils. The Tamils are culturally very similar to them and share the same origins and belong to the island like them , but you are not, especially with the recent trend , to discard the South Indian Sufi Islam , local Tamil Islamic customs practices and dress modes, especially for women and to adopt Wahhabi Islamic practices and Arabise your selves , especially the women, running around wearing fundamentalist Arab black Abaya, Burka, Niqab, Hijab and discarding the traditional Islamic garb, the saree, pavadai, thavani or the shalwar Kameez. The Sinhalese also know that unlike the island’s Tamils you are recent immigrants from South India and not from the Arabian desert. They go along with your Arab origin myth as it suits their agenda of dividing and ruling the Tamils.

          Yo Dumbo Rohan, First of all, you have to identify who the enemy is, common to all of us. Whether we belong to the Sinhala, Tamil or Muslim or any other category. The REAL ENEMY is the GOVIGAMA MAFIA RULING ELITES. They are the ones who have plotted with the British against the local rulers during the time of the invasion. There was a Tamil King but he was Buddhist by faith. What does it show??? It shows that in the ancient Lanka there was no issue about the caste or a creed. The British Empire was full of JEWS who became the MASTERS who financed the English Kings and who have misguided those Monarchs to wage wasteful wars. As time went along, these kingdoms fell into financial crisis. It was that time that the JEWS took over the reign and the evil began to spread all over the world.— follow the part2—-

        Part 2 Role Of Muslims Sri Lanka Genocide, Now At War with Sinhalese
        The role of Muslims in the Sri Lanka conflict is debatable.
        They were not subscribing to the Tamil Elam nor any other solution to alleviate the sufferings of the Tamils. They were so inimical Tamil Cause LTTE Prabhakaran expelled them from the Alliance.
        They have been the quislings right from the period of independence to Sirimavo Bandaranaike/Rajapakshes. Muslims condoned Tamil genocide and actually celebrated it. They actively participated in state sponsored pogroms against the Tamils, with Muslim ministers and politicians arranging Muslim thugs and criminal mobs to burn loot and destroy Tamil homes and properties and to kill and rape Tamil civilians. They were seen dancing in joy , holding street parties and victory parades in May 2009.
        Unlike other Muslim ethnicities, they are very fanatical ,for them Islam first and last. and not their Tamil ethnicity . The Sinhalese are also equally fanatical. They have used the Muslims against the Tamils and now are tightening the screws on the Muslims. Muslims are also largely responsible for Fascist Sinhalese Buddhist leaders like Gothabaya becoming powerful, as from the time of independence, instead of joining their fellow non Muslim Tamils to fight for just human rights and equality for everyone on the island, they were siding with Sinhalese racists to marginalise , discriminate and commit genocide and war crims on the island’s Tamils. All for petty benefits and ministerial perks for their politicians. They do not really care about human rights or the rise of Sinhalese Buddhist Fascism and are now only against it because they have now become the main target instead of the Tamils. If the victims were still their fellow non Muslim Tamils , they will be still gleefully joining these Sinhalese Buddhist Fascists and their genocidal dance. They are very opportunistic and are still trying to woo them , as evidenced by the Iftar dinners given in honour of Nazi Sinhalese Buddhist Fascist and War Criminal Gotabaya

          These shameless Tamils. They lost the war so now they take any opportunity to kick Sri Lanka. They infest these columns with their ‘deep concern’ for human rights forgetting that they supported and funded terrorism and genocide. These accursed people from their lairs in London and Toronto use every chance they can to attack the Sangha, the politicians, the Government, the people. Very few of them (such as the late Dr Narendran) care about the nation. They have no intention of ever returning, but they have a lot to say about history and culture and their ‘rights’. The media should not allow their lying voices to be heard. The media is conducting their propaganda for them. They have lost the war and their hatred for all things Sri Lankan is unending.

          Do you think Dr Gota is young?

          Gotabhaya Rajapaksa born on 20 June 1949 (age 69 years)
          Ranil Wickremesinghe born on 24 March 1949 (age 69 years)

          Was Ranil dealing with MIG deal, Arms deal, Avant Garde Security Service, LTTE’s cash and Gold, ……………………….?
          We know Gota didn’t share his loot with others. Then why do defend the former national hangman?

          Have you noticed every time Hitler’s b***s carrier hear hail Hitler their arms make an upward movement . Similarly when you see Gota’s name here why does your arm do similar movement and defend his glorify of his persona?

          Do you practice in front of the mirror?
          Does Gota know you are also in competitive glorification of him?

Compared with the megascale central bank robbery, mig deal corruption pales into insignificance. What is mere 3 or 4 million compared with multi billions stolen by the gang of robbers under ranils leadership? Nothing! Write whatever garbage you want here, you don’t count, call Gota names which is a sign of your weakness along with your mates here, the people will decide who is good for them, unless of course aloy could issue another 15 million chaeques to buy evevry vote in the country. hahaha…. and you can soon swim back to your native Dravidian land across the palk straight.

              WOW. You apologetics are an utter disgrace. Bond scam is probably the only thing your narrow mind can come up with. Never look at the REAL developments that have taken place in the past 3 years. 40MILLION DOLLARS WAS SPEND TO BLAST A ROCK! How much do you think your beloved leader favored? AT LEAST 1.8BILLION RS WAS TRANSFERRED FOR YOUR BELOVED CAMPAIGN ELECTION THROUGH THE HAMBANTOTA ACCOUNT BY CHINA…the list goes on…and your puny mind is stuck on a bond scam where all the dealings and jurisdiction limits have been accounted for and only waiting for just ONE rat to emerge.

              Please educated yourself in the correct lines to understand what the true definition of development is.

              CB Bond scam has been the mantara for the all the JO clowns and the biased main stream media , sure it was a day light robbery ;accordingly, some of the main culprits are behind bars without bail ;further, all the lost money will have been recovered through the sale of Aloysias’s known/unknown properties in due course. now tell us what punishment has any of the Rajapakses received thus far ? ETF/Greek Bond scam , does any body even raise those questions in the main stream media ? wonder why ? Hedging deal , endless white elephant Mega project commissions , sale of stolen gold from Tamils etc the list goes on , yet only topic is CB Bond scam , please explain why ?

                Another interesting one to add to the list, Constructing a D. A. Rajapaksa Memorial Museum using the public’s money and all they do is make happy visits to the FCID and back.

                Using powers to enforce taking legal action against them and custody under the Public Property Act.

                If such events took place with regard to the common man that person would have been charged long time ago.

              Well you are worried only about the scale of the theft not the principles and responsibilities of the rulers and functionaries.
              People talk about the Great Bank Robbery recently.

              Could you explain to me how was it done, how much exactly did they steal, where do they keep it, who benefited from the Great Bank Robbery, …………… if you really understood the way the robbery was planed and executed.

              ” the people will decide who is good for them, “

              Of course they do.
              They regularly make uninformed choices.
              Does it matter?
              Finally do you think people will chose a racist, a mass murderer with a complete record of Human Rights violations and war crimes, enforcer of kleptocracy who is a great supporter/benefactor of saffron clad thugs.

    Alright, let us forget about Thero’s remarks which obviously were out of context followed by the other statement by another reputed Anu Nayaka Thero, though both were misleading and gave a wrong message to younger generation.
    .
    No harm happened to Buddhism or the Venerable Theros. The damage was done to one person, i.e. Gotabhaya and slightly to Buddha Sasana.
    .
    At the same time let’s not forget it was the accusation of fear, suppression and intimidation in addition to plundering public coffer that took centre stage in 2015 Presidential campaign against Mahinda which led him lose his position UNFAIRLY. Too bad Mahinda’s own side gave the same ammunition to his opponents this time again.
    .
    I am an ardent supporter of Wimal and Mahinda. I love them very much like millions of other people. But I refuse to be blind-faith. The entire country want Mahinda back but I point blank reject US citizens, Gotabhaya or Basil as the next President who are the direct reasons for Mahinda’s ousting in 2015. We are not taking the same route again. Mahinda can do without them. He already has a support base without the help of Gotabhaya or Basil. The challenge in front of him is winning the hearts and minds of 6.2 million who rejected him, the majority of which are people who adore him as a leader. He will lose them again if he fields Gotabhaya or Basil as the next President. I am blunt. I can’t help. This is me.

        Nope. Bandula’s assertion is ridiculous. I said many times I don’t approve Mahinda’s ad-hoc economic policies during the period 2010-2015.. I sent many new suggestions to Wimal in 2015/2016 through LankaCNews. Now I have more. I would like to share my proposals with them.
        About the exaggeration, for your information, Mahinda had 5.8 million people (47.58% as against Maithree’s 51.28%) in January 2015.

        Wimal and Mahinda, Wimal needs Mahinda Rajapske ‘s help to cover up the stolen wealth from the voters this time. Otherwise, he won’t get the highest number of MANAPA. LOOTERS are RULERS. SL rupee is worth 0.005 of the British pound. MahindaNanada Aluthgamage has a house in London he bought all he earned in the ministry of Sports. His wife had said how he earned every thing to this govt. But he is still at large.

          Oh please give me a break. Wimal is facing all his court cases. If you have any evidence against him, go to the CID and handed over them. Who stops you?
          Aluthgamage is also facing court cases.
          How about Ravi K’s penthouse apartment, the bribe he received from Aloysius when he was the Finance Minister? Any progress about the case? Oh, I forget there is no case, right? May be because you couldn’t reach his wife?
          How about Anura Kumara? There were news reports about him receiving tax papers from the Irish Tax Department with regard to a palace in Ireland in his name. Too bad you couldn’t accompany him when he went to Ireland last time.

      Champa, there is no need to be apologetic about the Thero’s remarks. This is the same thing as a Christian priest saying, “Go with the Devil even and correct things in this country” or something to that effect.

      .

      The Thero should come out and say, “if you are in doubt let me repeat those words again” and then do so – word to word. These barkers have something juicy things to bark at right now. Let them bark. If the Thero’s remarks were not there they would have dig up something else.
      .

      Anyway, a friendly warning to all those barkers. Your time is about to be up. So bark as much as you like, because when Mahinda comes there will be repercussions of a scale never seen for the last century in this country – or seen only in Germany if you want me to be more elaborate.

        What are trying to say in your last para?
        “..when Mahinda comes there will be repercussions of a scale never seen for the last century……..???” Are you crazy?
        There won’t be, there shouldn’t be any revenge from anybody. What happened has happened. We must take the high road. Mahinda should go for a complete opposite type of governing. That is why I don’t want Gotabhaya or Basil there. They are bad influence. Their presence remembers people of the past regime they rejected.
        2020 is the beginning of a new era for Sri Lanka. I strive to bring back the Sinhalese Buddhist culture where we were brought up. Sinhalese fight a fight. But at the same time they are people of good hearts. They are generous, compassionate, sharing and sensitive. We are heading for a new era which Sri Lanka has never been.

        I also feel that particular Thero who may have no proper education about those war related issues well, never thought this would have created an island wide divisions, but just droped as everyone would do. In my younger days in SL, 3 decades ago, there had been some values in lanken society whenever whatever being added to the public. Bt some politicians of roudy nature have abused the society, also making even derogatory statmements on the public stage by date. Lie for example, Rajakashe HAD NO shame to add it to say, ” yes I have proved to have done 3 times, but Ranil failed to it -pointing at HIS 3 bastard sons, “… these Senior politicians shoudl be beheaded to turn this society a good one.

        And the fact that we need a Mahathir mohammed style leader who can control over everything, above all, corruption and higher abuses is the need of the hour.

        None among the seniors today are suitable candidates. And no means can he be from Rajapakshe circles either. We perfectly got it at the time ,Ballige putha rajapakshe led groups were in power, what did not go wrong, what did NOT they abuse ? Had we been given the chance to criticse the rascal family while ballige puthas bastard sons were running night races across commercial city-Colombo and most sacred city Kandy. Not a single person had the right to stand against it, our people s memories have usually gone to dogs.

    Gotler, unlike Hitler has an advantage over the latter.
    Gotler expects to attain Nirvana by almsgivings, carrying relics, praying at Hindu shrines in India, and worshipping the Buddhist clergy.
    Gotler, when he wins the presidential election, may even appoint the Anunayake as Prime Minister – there are Bhikkus already as MPs.

      If it was not Mahinda, who do you have?
      Muslim and Tamil politicians have no option other than supporting Mahinda’s candidate (minus Gotabhaya/Basil). They are disappointed with Yahapalanaya for various reasons.
      Mahinda should take a wise decision of his candidate so as not to divide Sinhalese.
      About Muslim and Tamil political parties, I don’t see any reason for him to go for a pact with them. There are other ways for him to win the hearts and minds of ordinary Muslims and Tamils.
      Despite TNA’s and Muslim parties’ open election campaign against him in 2015 January, Mahinda has received 108,831 votes from the North and 93,742 votes from the East. I am confident that his candidate can receive at least another 200,000 more votes WITHOUT the help of TNA. How? If he has no clue, I can tell him next year.

        “Muslim and Tamil politicians have no option other than supporting Mahinda’s candidate (minus Gotabhaya/Basil).”

        Do they really have to vote any candidate?
        Why do they have to?
        They could always chose to spoil the vote.
        In 2005 remember a substantial number of Tamils didn’t vote courtesy of your brethren the Psychopath VP. Mahinda won by 100,000 odd votes. And VP earned a tidy sum of Rs185 Million for his service to democracy.

        By the way why isn’t your pimp Wimal Sangili Karuppan Weerawansa contesting the presidential candidate? Do you think he is liked by ordinary Sinhala/Buddhists? He might have a very good chance of winning as presidential candidate because people like you don’t make informed choices.

          Muslims/Tamils have to vote. Otherwise their votes are wasted. Their politicians use their votes to make various separatist racist political demands from Sinhalese leaders. In 2015, Mahinda refused to accede to their demands. So they turned to Maithree and Ranil who embraced them with open arms.
          I don’t believe 2005 LTTE story. If there was such an understanding, Mahinda wouldn’t have taken steps to defeat LTTE the sooner he assumed office as the President.
          Mahinda won by only 108,000 votes in 2005 as Chandrika openly worked against him in support of Ranil. As a result he lost a considerable number of SLFP votes.

            Who cares.
            Most of your fellow Sinhala/Buddhist fascists who type in this forum including the public racist Dayan believe minority votes do not count or should not count. Therefore why should they bother?

            “In 2015, Mahinda refused to accede to their demands. So they turned to Maithree and Ranil who embraced them with open arms.”

            What demands, please jog my memory.

            “Mahinda won by only 108,000 votes in 2005 as Chandrika openly worked against him in support of Ranil. As a result he lost a considerable number of SLFP votes.”

            By enforcing an election boycott in Vanni LTTE effectively prevented nearly 300,000 votes being caste for UNP.
            Now do the maths.

                  The statement “Most of your fellow sinhala / Buddhists fascists …….” is offensive to me. I am a Sinhala, Buddhist who grew up in a predominant Buddhist school with many Tamil friends.

                  Besides yours is a very liberal generalisation which smears many sinhalese with the same brush of tar. I still think there are a large number of very decent, right thinking Sinhala Buddhist people who are not chauvinistic and therefore could not be termed fascists..

                  From your posting you appear to speak for the Tamil population. I invite you to speak on behalf of all right thinking Sri Lankan instead..

                  I do not know where you live, but if those who are domiciled overseas dominate this website and make vile comment, then it is neither fair nor reasonable by those who live in Sri Lanka, for they are those who really feel the pulse.

                  It might be helpful to remember that you cannot fight insult or ugly language by going lower than the offender. By doing so, you are allowing them to get under your skin. Names are not necessary but with every lewd comment the offender points a finger at his breeding and upbringing.

                  If the Tamils have been practicing up North, a perfectly democratic form of governance where every citizen is equal and there is no class or caste differentiation whatsoever, do let me know.

                    I have no problem with you if you are a Sinhala, Buddhist.
                    I have always defined Sinhala/Buddhist fascist as the noisy minority who were lost in the modern era and concocted a sham identity, Sinhala/Buddhist and concocted Sinhala/Buddhism for political expediency. You should start blaming the Aryan public racist for reason you would have already known.

                    It appears you too are indulging in selective reading.

                    “It might be helpful to remember that you cannot fight insult or ugly language by going lower than the offender.”

                    You do not seem to notice the insult, venom and bigotry spewing out of the defenders of Sinhala/Buddhism a fake religion created for and on behalf of the racist lot. About hundred years ago there was no such religion as Sinhala/Buddhism nor a people known as Sinhala/Buddhists, nor Aryan Sinhala/Buddhists, nor Sinha Le, Hela, …… . I know they are a fascist minority bent on building a sand castle but with much destruction.

                    They were just Sinhalese, Buddhists, Christians, Moors, Hindus, Tamils, Malays, ………………………

                    “If the Tamils have been practicing up North, a perfectly democratic form of governance where every citizen is equal and there is no class or caste differentiation whatsoever, do let me know.”

                    Why are you passing the burden onto me? Did I ever say I was responsible for the welfare of Tamils of North. Now you are being nasty to me when I never offended you personally in the past.

    If GoTa or Gotler becomes President of Sri Lanka, he will create the most sophisticated killing machines to get rid of all those opposing his views. GoTa, the uneducated moron has already displayed his inborn murderous instincts from the early stage of his career as an Army officer in Matala where he created the biggest mass grave to bury over 500 youths from that area.

    GoTa, or Gotler’s killing instincts may be more dangerous than Hitler’s. Spineless Ranil and Gamarala Sirisena have not courage to finish Gotler off.

      Matale’s mass massacre was orchestrated by Alick Aluvihare & his sons Ranjith, Daljit and their henchmen, Gota may have been the one to execute the mass killings. During the same time a prominent SLFP MP for Ratota, Lawyer Yalegama was also assassinated by the Aluvihares, Alick Aluvihare’s death coincided with the death of Velupillai.

    Since we take liberty to talk of a dictator named Hitler, may I put in my two cents worth? The man came into power through elections and consolidated his authority as a dictator labelling himself as the “Fuhrer”. This reminds me of Prabhakaran who consolidated his position by eliminating leaders of parallel outfits of “revolutionaries” or “insurgencies” and called himself as “Thalaiver”. Both the Fuhrer and the Thalaiver had similarities in their approach to issues. We know by past experience that Sri Lankan votes are hardly a vote of confidence for a party but a no-confidence of the existing regime. The issue here is if ever we elect a “Gottler” who is responsible for this? The answer is clear. It is the present regime whom I and many others who write to this publication voted for. The Local Government Elections are a testimony for this. It is sad to note that there is no attempt to control the damage. So I see no point in making hue and cry writing about a Gottler and if we don’t want the demon the best way is to publish ideas of damage control so that the electoral tide may be reversed.

    Devil and Hitler. Why doesn’t that Devil take me with him? It would be much better with him than it is here. (Eva Braun, wife of Hitler) When Eva Braun said that it was a metaphorical statement. Take another, this time from Churchill.
    .
    If Hitler invaded hell I would make at least a favourable reference to the devil in the House of Commons. (Winston Churchill). What he meant was that he considered Hitler to be worse than the Devil, a statement that the Devil would not have liked very much – had he existed. Fortunately for Churchill, the Devil, just like God, does not exist.
    .
    That is all there to it in the mention of Hitler in the Thero’s statement. A metaphorical reference. When Mahinda comes you barkers would wish your lips were welded. That is not a metaphorical statement. Because he is on a blitzkrieg with his juggernaut of Panzers, Armored vehicles, Stuka dive bombers etc. rolling at full speed, sweeping the feeble resistance aside like twigs in a storm. Unlike God and Devil, Mahinda exists – very much.
    .
    Does it mean that Mahinda would just massacre the opposition? Sure he would! But if you were to lie down and enjoy it like I advised before perhaps you will be spared. Don’t waste writing stupid articles or making comments. Practice lying now. I mean practice lying down now.
    .
    I have to stop there because my tough new housekeeper is saying that if I don’t go and eat the dinner right away she will it give it to the dog. Hopefully, that was only a metaphor. I will tell you next time.

      Roy,
      We don’t know whether Hitler had one testicle or no testicle, but one has to accept the fact that our Vendaruwe Upali Thero had the balls to say what he wanted to say, his courage appreciated.
      In the West if something like this is said there would have been a big hullabaloo accusing the person who said it to be anti-Semitic and so on, here in our country that kind of propaganda will not have the intended impact which the criminal Yahapalana Bank Robbers expect.
      By the way most of what is said about Hitler after his death are hearsay & fabricated lies by his enemies, which has no definitive proof .

        Whether Vendaruwe Upali Thero has both b***s or not he has confirmed/proved that like his fellow Sri Lankans he has no brain.

        ” here in our country that kind of propaganda will not have the intended impact which the criminal Yahapalana Bank Robbers expect.”

        I agree, since the advent of the public racist Anagarica Homeless Dharmapala the stupid people have been conditioned to believe in their Aryan ancestry.

          The description is taken out of context, the Hitler element in Thero’s remark is about how ‘stubborn’ and focused one should be in ‘developing the country’, hence there was no calling to adopt a destructive path to do so.

          Whether Vendaruwe Upali Thero has both b***s or not he has confirmed/proved that like his fellow Sri Lankans he has no brain.
          – don’t you think by this assertion you’re generalizing all Sri Lankans have no brain! when you say “like his fellow Sri Lankans he has no brain.

          Anagarica Dharmapala is out of the equation, yet he has a fan-following like Patali Champika, Udaya Gammanpila & Wijedasa Rajapakse to name a few.

            Why couldn’t Vendaruwe Upali think of any other determined leaders, ‘stubborn’ and focused.

            One attributes common among determined leaders is that he/she should have the ability to carry people along with him/her, not a cold blooded mass killed.

            “don’t you think by this assertion you’re generalizing all Sri Lankans have no brain! when you say “like his fellow Sri Lankans he has no brain.”

            If 48% or more of the people are still want the kleptocracy with record level of war crimes and mass killing what do you call them?

            Isn’t it obvious you too are part of them expressing the same irrational sentiment?

              Earlier on you said like his fellow Sri Lankans he has no brain, (fellow Sri Lankans means you included) now you switch gear and speak about a 48%, – what a skewed logic, in most 3rd world countries – the so called democracy and kleptocracy is a hand in glove thing, currently the level of corruption in the country has reached a dangerous level.
              I don’t see anything irrational in my statement, it is how one wants to understand it.
              Next time we will advice the Thero to say to Gotha, be like Trump put Sri Lanka First and stop the Horapalanaya rogues selling the assets of our country and robbing the Island’s Central Bank & other institutions.

                I never accepted the name Sri Lankan. It was in 1972 Siri Mao and her merry men deceived the people by denying them the right to vote for or against the change of name from Ceylon to Sri Lanka in a referendum.

        The type of balls Ven Upali thero has is good enough to be on snooker tables. Balls are testicles, and I think the courage or aggression could come from the amount of testosterone produced by them, which does create aggression and forcefulness.
        It is not gender specific as women can also, “have balls”.

They are the best of the best who must take over. We need that kind of HITLERS. We do not need theives Like WIMAL WEERAWANSHA and there are a lot among 225 who used nationalism and were stealing from the public. IT is Ranil PReach ECONOMICS and let everybody swindle the country.

      Does it mean the people of this island are so dumb to elect a mass murderer and a enforcer of the kleptocracy?

        What we need is a performer with a proven track record. If you can’t understand that you too better go to hell and lick Prabha’s smelly ass. Prabhakaran was worse than Hitler. Hitler killed many more people but he at least used the gas chamber in which people lost consciousness before death. Your king Prabha cut opened the wombs of pregnant women in the border villages and took the babies out to be impaled on boundary posts. [edited out]

          “What we need is a performer with a proven track record.”

          Who is this performer, and what was his/her performance track record, and total cost?

          Did he/she fake performance?

          “Hitler killed many more people but he at least used the gas chamber in which people lost consciousness before death.”

          So you justify Hitler’s genocide of Jews and others on the basis of efficiency and not based on any moral principles. Now I understand how your perverted and sadistic mind rationalize mass murder.

    I think all problems can be solved satisfactorily if only Ranil would start acting really aggressively. A daily regimen of testosterone injections might help. If that does not work a gonad transplant might deliver good results. I am willing to donate one of mine (free) for the sake of my country.

    Well ! Well! Well, can understand your craving for the return of Modamulla Brigade from Medamullana.
    Your kind of uneducated ,selfish racists views will only drive the Aspirants and the Aspirations of the Racist brigade to face the Cess pit on the Poling day , while the true Patriots choose a deserving President for this country.
    Until then go on Barking up the Moon..

    From the comments we read from almost every Srilankans from all walks of life are ashamed and shocked of the Senile Thero from the Asgiriya chapter’s utterances of ” the return of Hitler Power ” .
    His Utterances are a Disgrace to the Religion, A Disgrace to the Country, and A Disgrace to True Buddhists.
    Damage is already done to the country and the Religion, what more do we need to prove that this Thero was , only joking, or trying to put a wool over the eyes or ears in true Denial in typical Srilankan way of denial.
    Damage limitations will not help.
    This horrible” Buddhist Priests Sermon “. will Pop up in every conversations and in every Patriotic website or in news papers for years to come.
    This kind of Racism existed SINCE THE BANDARANAYKE ERA , OF whom the Originator of this Racism against Tamils.
    It was from Mahasangha to Asgiriya chapters and the highest of Buddhism in Srilanka has sowed this Visious seed .
    This racism was there among the Prealates to annihilate the Tamils from existing in APPE AAANDUWE.
    That utterances at the Birthday party was the Results of this 70 years of Plot of Annihilation of the minority who too belonged the country.
    Living in denial and preaching Racism is not looking good for the country and the Religion.
    Most of all the Presidential Aspirant will only ” BITE THE DUST ” on the day.
    These racists are there to ” FAN THE FLAME OF RACISM ” instead of thinking of GOODNESS TO THE COUNTRY OR TO ITS PATRIOTS NOR THE FUTURE OF THIS COUNTRY.

      First of all please analyse whether your brain is at least in your back side or whether it has already passed in to the toilet. Whatever the job Gota was given, he completed with flying colours. Whether it was What did RW do? Robbing the Central Bank within 50 days of Sorrysena coming to power. (That too by lying left right and centre. Where are the f.cking helicopters, golden horses and Lamborghinis.) At that time on 27th Feb 2015, RW didn’t even have a mandate to be the PM. Still he robbed the bank and you fools are still calling him Mr Clean. Mr Clean my foot.

    It is true MAhinda Rajapakse had closed eyes and every one around him was steeling while he lived the WAR WIN. At least for the humongous loans he got he has a harbour, air port and some expressways to show. Ranil has doubled what Mahinda Rajapske got. He is getting loans almost every weak and there is no money in the country. Only thing we know the central bank is manipulaitng currency and news papers are reported Stock market lost so many billions. the last haul is 21 billion. Ranil’s media do not publish tht for various reasons.

    Internally and externally the odds are stack highly against Gota or any Rajapakse becoming a president of SL again. Internally no one get to the top without the minorities’ votes for the majority votes get broken into two, and when minorities votes get added to it, and it’s ensure the winner. Externally, US, India and West would never let any one who has Chinese blessing to be a President of SL, for that matter, either he should be without Chinese blessing or neutral. So from Rajapaksa past records they are well aware about them. Just take the case of Nawaz Shariff of Pakistan, who was behind his removal as PM, and banning him for life from politics by the supreme courts, it’s the US. US told him multiple occasions not to sign the USD. 40 billion China Gawada port and economic corridor but he signed, after that he was out. CIA and Pakistan ISI are closeky connected for years, ISI is controlled by the Pakistan military, even during civilian ruling times, behind the scene, the military has a strong say in affairs of the country. Due to US, the Pakistan military instigated Supreme Court to rule against Sharriff. His only sin for this was his getting UAE Dh. 10000 per month as allowance from his children’s Dubai based company which was not declared to the authorities in Pakistan. Sharif is none US citizen but here Gota is still their citizens, in a situation like this, do any guess they would easily revoke his citizenship, already his records have made him on close watch of India, US and West. This is the reality not only SL but all over the world, the external actors play big roll in local elections.

    What education does this Anunayaka have to blast forth on politics? Did he go to school or university and study political science, or social studies, or principles of good governance or history or geography or science or mathematics or economics or law or accountancy or art, or even English Language to get a world view outside the frog’s well? NO. Obviously he has not even studied the Teachings of the Buddha which includes ‘Metta’ or ‘Loving Kindness’. The barbaric atrocities of Hitler and other Fascist Dictators is the exact opposite of Buddhism. If this had been a Catholic or Anglican Priest he would have faced strictures or even dismissal by the Pope of the Archbishop, but in Sri Lanka the Mahanayakas keep quiet, and are complicit in incitement to mass murder .
    Why are Buddhist priests so remarkably dense on worldly matters? This is because little boys as young as 9 or 10 (novices) are handed over to temples by destitute parents when they are too young to decide anything, least of all whether being a priest is what they want to be in life. Children of rich parents are never handed over like that. Whether to be a priest should be a decision taken in adulthood. The little boys in the temples grow up learning Buddhist texts on the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path (if that) and anything else the loku hamuduruwo decides to teach the abitththaya at his leisure. That is all. When the kids grow up they often find that being a real priest and actually practicing the Teachings of the Buddha is too hard and they are unqualified to find any other jobs, so they stick on in the temple and in the robe, not to practice the Noble Teachings of The Buddha, but for the free board and lodging.

      “What education does this Anunayaka have to blast forth on politics?”
      Same level of education as most Sri Lankan politicians have.
      “If this had been a Catholic or Anglican Priest he would have faced strictures or even dismissal .”
      He was demoted by Gamarala Sillisena by releasing promoting Ganasara as Ekaseeyasunayaka.
      “Why are Buddhist priests so remarkably dense on worldly matters?”
      Because most of them are unwanted children either born out of wedlock or into poverty dumped in temples as children. So you have part of the answer the other part is a bastard will always be a bastard. You can put a robe on him or a crown it will not matter.

    Thanks for the analysis. Presently our leaders and politicians who are supposed to represent us, no matter which party they belong to, have a track record of F grade. They and their followers, who are supposed to stand for fairness in defense of the law, do nothing. Just cheer them on stage and in jail. May be they do something. They remain silent. And they remain willfully blind to the threat of an increasingly lawless society in which all institutions are compromised to their personal benefit. It’s like a poor neighbor whose welfare depends on the rich neighbor. A free society should be distinguished from a “free” or independent country, since independence means simply that the leaders of the “free” state are not subject to control by another nation. Too often in recent decades our people have traded a relatively liberal, that is, a free society, but one controlled by another whom they elected tyrant. In Germany after Hilter got elected this would make him the commander of the army as well. In recent past in our Sri Lankan democracy Police department comes under Ministry of Defence. Intimidation and fear was installed and fear became the power… He was then, for all intents and purposes, a dictator. Remember Hitler was democratically elected.

    Veddah and most others, I can understand your fear of Gota. But consider this, the last seventy years are a very small portion of Sri Lanka’s history. For most of it’s history Sri Lanka has been ruled by dictators, i.e. various Kings and the British Empire. During those centuries it has both prospered and decayed. Who is to say that it will not prosper under a dictator again?

    You could claim that democracy is not perfect but that nobody has designed anything better. What has democracy brought us to, these last seventy years? Perhaps a period of strong rule is worth trying. The only fly in the ointment is that so far Gota has not shown the principled honesty that must balance the possession of absolute power.

    As I said, just consider this. I am not advocating it, I’d like to know what others think.

      Was it Peronism with Sri Lankan twist?

      The practical democrat Tonny Benn suggested that voters should ask the those in positions of economic, social and political power five questions:

      “Where did you get it from?”

      “In whose interests do you use it?”

      “To whom are you accountable?”

      “How do we get rid of you?”

      You ask:
      “What has democracy brought us to, these last seventy years? “
      Tell us what have you done to strengthen democracy?

      Have you ever made informed choices when you voted for a candidate?
      Have you ever asked Tony Benn’s five questions?
      Have you ever challenged the majoritarian ideology?
      You still live in a feudal country with feudal ideology though you possess all the material convenience with large emotionally retarded lumpen population but never happy with liberal ideals nor understood democratic principles and practices.

      Democracy should ensure safety, security, habitat, livelihood, dignity, rule of law, equality in front of law, human rights, ……………………… freedom of movement, freedom of speech, freedom of thought, …………………………….. rights and responsibility, right to dissent, ……………. and another million things.

      Dictatorship is another good place to hide crooks, murderers, thieves, war criminals, …………………….. which creates more crooks, murderers, thieves, war criminals, ……… excuse for nepotism.

        Veddah, Tony Benn was a fool, that is why he could not become the leader of the Labor party. If you take the trouble to look into these matters you will find that his son and heir Hillary is not the same. He has abandoned his father’s extreme left politics and is slightly left of center.

He did a lot to the party and the people of UK by being outside the consensus of parties. He was principled, honest, visionary, caring, compassionate, ………………….. and had educated many youth by being a living example, …………….. and Jeremy Corbyn the current opposition leader is one of them.

          We can discuss about Hilary Benn until cows come home, on second thought there isn’t much to talk about him, or may be I din’t know much about him, ……………………………

          Could you tell us what was Hilary’s contribution or why we should know about him.
