Sirisena Sinks To New Low And Passes Sexual Innuendos At Ranil During UPFA Rally

Making a despicable speech during a rally organized by the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA), President Maithripala Sirisena passed a sexual innuendo at Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe saying a gang of ‘butterflies’ ruled the country under Wickremesinghe’s watch.

President Sirisena

Sirisena said he wanted to change the Prime Minister as he could not agree with the “butterfly’ rule. “The ones who made important decisions were not the senior Cabinet ministers of the government, but Ranil and his butterfly gang,” Sirisena said, addressing the meeting.

Sirisena also said he first offered the Prime Minister’s post to Speaker Karu Jayasuriya but he turned down the offer saying he could not go against the Prime Minister. “Then I invited Sajith Premadasa to become the Prime Minister and he too turned it down saying he did not want confrontations with the party leader.”

“After both of them refused the position,’ Sirisena said, “I was looking for a man who loved the country and who could join forces with me to strengthen democracy. I found in Mahinda Rajapaksa a man who could topple Ranil Wickremesinghe and his government.”

Sirisena also said he had secured a majority in Parliament and saw no reason to turn back on his decision.

“I urge Speaker Jayasuriya, a staunch Buddhist to speak to the Mahanayakes, Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith and other religious leaders about the current situation. Act according to their advises and allow the new government to do its job,” Sirisena added.

He said Wickremesinghe was worshipping the western embassies and requesting them to intervene in domestic political matters.

He also said that he explained his position to the UN Secretary-General during the telephone conversation and the latter agreed to extend the fullest support to strengthen democracy in the country. However, the UN Secretary-General’s office, issuing a statement, contradicted President Sirisena’s version of the story and said the UN Chief requested Sirisena to convene Parliament without delay.

Concluding his speech, Sirisena pleaded Ranil Wickremesinghe to step aside and allow the new government to function.

            If you have more information on child abuse by anybody with evidence please take steps to catch the culprits without defaming all the monks, without being silly.

              “There’s no 100% perfect society anywhere in the world.”
              That was a fast come-down wasn’t it?
              The head monk in the local temple was caught recently. He was chased out but not prosecuted.
              The problem is that nobody talks about criminal monks because it is a sin to criticize the Sangha. So people like you actually believe their self-serving “bana” sermons.

              Real Revolutionist
              In Sri Lanka, mostly the underprivileged children are chosen to be ordained as Buddhist monks. The poverty stricken families in rural villagers offer their young children (boys) to the Buddhist temple at a tender age to be ordained as a monk and get abused, molested and sodomized by the senior/adult monks who prey on their innocence to satisfy their carnal desires. These children who are given away to the Buddhist temples at an early age are too young to understand the religion or child abuse or the intimacyual molestation they face. This disgusting practice of taking the childhood away by forcing a child to become a monk at the tender age, gives great opportunity for the vultures to prey on the innocence. This could partly explain the antisocial behavior they show when they grow-up and come in contact with society.

        That is the culture in SL. But they just behave as if they are clean.

        I think Mahinda Rajaakshe himself should have been molested in his childhood by a monk . That may well be the reason him to keep visiting Pansal almost every days. Ranil is coming from a wealthy family background. So, he would never attack others in public the manner these ill fated buggers have been upto

      Clergy, irrespective of the religion are citizens of the country and have every right to get involved in matters affecting the country. Country first; religion second and not the other way around.

        The clergy are expected to provide spiritual guidance & should not get involved in politics, although as individuals, they have the right to choose a leader to govern their country. Buddhist monks are supposed to have given up the material world in search of nirvana & are expected to lead a simple life, dependant on the charity of strangers but I doubt if that is the case with SL monks. The ‘dayakayas’ in SL, probably those with a heavy conscience, spoil & corrupt monks, presumably in the belief of a better after life with the merits gained in doing so but as far as politicians are concerned, it is obviously for gains in this life.

    This is the only ungrateful man in this universe.
    This Sirisena became a president of of Sri Lanka because of Ranil Wickramasinghe and UNP.
    Now he illegally appointed Mahinda Rajapaksa as a Prime Minister.
    Sirisena openly destructively criticized Mahinda and his family for thousand of thousands time in public.
    Sirisena started his campaign after leaving Mahinda Rajapaksa by brutally and despicably criticizing and spreading unimaginable rumors.
    How can we trust this man.
    Can we believe in this man.
    Uneducated, undisciplined, uncultured man has created chaos in our country.
    Shame on you. Sirisena

    I am not concerned about the sexual preferences of previous PM. I am also not a person who is going Kade for MY 3.

    My concern is that RW has decived the entire country posing different sexual or marriage arrangments. He also deicved the citizens of Sri Lanka as faithful follower of Buddhisam. He does not have any of these qualities. This kind of “Borukaraya” is not suitable to hold any public positions or PM. This is not a question of sexual preferences. It is a question of deceiving the Sri Lankan people.

    Foreign Ambassadors and High Commissioners should take note of the President’s stupid statement against LGBTQ community on the whole and should not allow this stupid President to step into any of their countries. Next time he steps into any of the developed countries he is going to be turned away at the airport or a big LGBTQ protest will take place. Did he even think for one minute what this statement would do to SL tourism? An uneducated Bum.

    Mahinda can turn this to his advantage. As we all know he has not been recognized as the PM by any country other than China. With this statement of the President if Mahinda stands with Maithree the whole world will brand him as a HOMOPHOBIC. To turn this around and to save face and to project that Mahinda is a guardian of democracy, he should come to the Parliament and announce that he recognizes Ranil as the PM. Mahinda himself said that he would not have done what Maithree did. This would give a slap to Maithree and will re-establish the respect Mahinda commanded at one time.

    Butterflies are beautiful creatures , so colourful , bright, fluttering and flying around and giving great joy and hope to everyone who sees them flying, except to cruel heartless savages. . I hope we all have some traits of a butterfly. Like social butterflies, dressed beautifully in colourful expensive clothes fluttering here and there , giving great joy , that they are photographed and their antics reported in the press and avidly read. Most probably Silysena and Rajafaukse are envious of Butterflies as they bring great joy and hope and they just chaos , sadness and hardship. Instead of screeching about these beautiful joyous creatures and running them down . they both should have sung a duet about butterflies and entertained the crown . Just like this Tamil song , that was a hit in the 1980s. At least they both could have sung it and entertained the crowd. See the beauty and joy that a butterfly brings to our mundane world , or at least some one who tries to be a butterfly

    Though Sirisena tries to impute gayness to Ranil, he is not gay. Ranil is happily married. His wife (also Maithree) is the best PM’s wife we ever had.

      It does not matter whether a person is gay bi or transgender or straight. A person’s sexuality should never been an issue and a gay, lesbian. bi. Transgender/transsexual person is no less than a straight person. This is how nature or god has made them and we should respect this. Nobody is made to be gay or converted. People are born this way, just like you are born a male or female. This is all part of nature or god’s creation. A difference and if it was wicked/evil or an aberration as religious bigots, would want us to believe, then why did god or nature allow this. It is even found in the animal kingdom and only humans make it an issue. This was not an issue in our ancient culture, until the British Victorians and other Abrahamic religions imposed this value onto us. Some of the bravest men in history like Alexander the Great, Richard the Lionheart and many others were gay, this does not mean they were less manly. Gayness has nothing to do with a person being manly or womanly just like straights. In fact most gays and lesbians will pass off to be straight. It is only the more flamboyant ones come to our attention and we generalise gays according to them. These people are only a small percentage of the gay population. We all will be having gay friends and relatives who are very close to us and will not be aware of this, as they will never reveal their true sexuality in fear of ridicule, prejudice and public scorn. Will we love them less if we get to know that they are gay? Or Sirisena or Rajapaksa ? The answer is no.

      contd: Gayness has nothing to do with a person’s ability to do anything and they at times excel more than straights in many creative fields. The Irish Prime Minister who is half Indian is openly gay and lives with his partner. Would these people have spoken so derogatively about a person being gay if it was their child sibling or someone close to them? Proves they are pandering to people’s base instincts and prejudices regarding sexuality, race, religion, ethnicity all which have nothing to with good governance and prosperity of a people or land. This was opportunistic Sinhalese politicians have been doing from the time of independence , playing to peoples baser instincts, prejudices and fears and brought the country down to this level , created a costly war and still are playing to this. Race, ethnicity, language, religion and now sexuality. No one is superior or inferior, we all are equal. I hope people at least now wake up and now create a genuine multiracial/religious society, where all are equal and show these wicked base low life politicians that this is not on. People kept quiet and even silently enjoyed and encouraged when Tamils were targeted as it did not affect them and the hated Tamils were the victims. Now they are getting uncomfortable as the targets are getting closer to home. Their own Sinhalese politicians with whom they can identify as fellow humans. Tamils were not humans so they deserved what they got. This is the truth whether you like it or not. You encourage prejudice discrimination and genocide on others and it will finally come to you. Ranil is no saint he was part of this group that targeted Tamils but we Tamils are better and this insult not only targets him but other innocents.

      Whether Ranil is gay or not, whether he is happily married or not, whether his wife ( Mrs Maithree Wickremasinghe is the best PM’s wife SL ever had is not the criteria needed.

      Ranil is a disaster, he was a disaster, he is and always will be a disaster.
      As long as RW is in politics be assured that SL will never be a progressive country.
      Inwardly he is a selfish, self centered, stubborn, arrogant, uppish, sexless, godless individual and persons of that black mentality are a stumbling block to others.
      If RW was a intellectual politician then SL would have been on the same footing as the other the other asian tigers but alas ! it is not so.

      To put it bluntly Sri Lankans are living in their own fantasy world of vote, criticize, moan & groan, grumble, curse, cheat, hoodwink, con, bully, and like the sinhalese say ” nawey gilluneth ban choon” . ” If the ship sinks, still go on merrymaking “

      SL like a ship in a storm is sinking and sinking slowly and the rats will abandon ship while the passengers are left to the mercy of God. This time , God will have no mercy because with God there are limitations.
      Finally all SL politicians are governed by the Devil.

    There is no NEW LOW, as the Lowliness was not ever properly fathomed at all. If one had then we would not have this problem now. The Yapa Sirisena Gamarala AKA “Aappaya” was plucked out by Ranil to become the common candidate, persuading him to come for the first Rally and assured protection. The same “Aappe Kaappu kaththawa thamai”. He forgot the following morning where and with whom he partook the ‘Aappe’ meal and turned on his leader of 12 years, because he was not given the PM post. Now he has done the same because his presidential ambitions in 2020 is in shambles! as UNP does not want to have anything to do with him and want UNPer to contest the presidential, because HE used foul and fair language to run down all UNPer ministers and MP’s during and after the LG elections, until this week.

  • 3

    The issues in the present crisis created by Sirisena is about constitutionality of his decisions and upholding the Rule of Law. Firstly if there was an ambiguity in the constitutional provisions between the Sinhala and English versions the appropriate thing for Sirisena is to get the necessary clarity of the correct constitutional provision which should prevail instead of arrogating to himself its interpretation. According to the constitution interpreting the constitutional provision is the sole responsibility lying with the Supreme Court.
    Sirisena instead of dilly dallying should accept his follies and allow the constitution to take its course and the rule of law be upheld. He should behave and uphold the status of the office of president and not degrading to the level of passing Innuendos.

    I am so disappointed that CT is fast losing its credibility
    as a worthy news site. It is just one sided and has launched
    a tirade against Sirisena. I am neither a fan of him nor one
    of Ranil or Mahinda.

    Don’t forget that people today are intelligent and they have
    a mind of their own. It is the CT that is sinking to low depths
    with a highly prejudiced campaign and brand new concoctions.

    I ask you – if a group of gays can get together – Malik, Mangala,
    Sagala and Akirla Viraj Kariyawasam and them – can get togerher
    and ruin the country, what is wrong in Sirisena saying it.

    CT stop being hypocritic and get back to telling the truth like
    in the past. You are NO guardians of morals nor levels to which
    things could sink. Not when you hero, most hated in the country,
    is losing his pride and glory. Grow up CT.

    Butterflies are symbols of diversity and richness of Sri Lankan culture that we ought to celebrate. (of course, leeches are used take away bad blood, and often by reconstructive surgeons needing to remove stagnant blood from a flap or reattached limb.

    Even to The devil The lord as a God of justice and non prejudice felt should not be denied his entitled portion (even though it is very temporary 😀)

    I wonder what The President really meant,

    I may be in disagreement totally with the way he went about the removal of RW & replacement of Mr, but I personally would always give everyman the benefit of the doubt.

    You see its a very hard job to translate
    from. One language to another, sometimes you can never find the right words, our minds are so, so Colanised with westernized thinking, we tend to interpretate almost every thing we hear to what our minds are programmed with, especially when we try to do it with the English language,

    It would be only fair to let the man clarify himself before we speculate and conclude.

    If he reads this article he needs to clarify exactly what he meant.

    Siva Sankaran I beg to differ, though I will never ever condone any attack on gender bias or any other, including religion or race.

    But if you think Sri Lanka culture will ever embrace them, I regret to enlighten you that they will never, India can and has, because their beliefs culturally has space for them, I am sure you aware of it, even some Christian majority nations and leaders refuse to recognize them, like Trump today, so can anyone succeed by insisting a nation that culturally is against these groups to recognize them? It could be extremely a dangerous stance to even think about.

    Example IRAN, Even Pakistan and few other Muslim nations have embraced Transgenders and even fund them for all their medical needs, and in Thailand its not an issue at all though its a Buddhist country, like wise its sevely hated in Saudi, even transgenders can face death penalty if they declare openly, in the past some Pakistani transgenders were tortured and killed in Saudi.

    The only way is either the group live in silence suffering or reach out to similar groups overseas where they are recognized and have legal status and immigrate.

    I can assure, the larger portion of Sri Lanka among all communitiws will never accept this group,sadly and regrettably.

      Nonsense the basic Sri Lankan culture is Indian . 99% of our population irrespective of ethnicity or religion is of South Indian origin. The rest a mixture but still predominantly South Indian. If India can Sri Lanka can do it too ,as we have not fallen far from mother( India). If people cannot they should be taught what is correct by politicians, elders, clergy and even science instead of teaching them to ridicule anything that is different eg. race, language, ethnicity or religion , like what is happening now. The country that I now live, Australia was very homophobic and had a very macho culture when I migrated there in the 1980s. Gangs of youth used to roam around looking to bash gays and sometimes even kill them with impunity , most of the time the police turning a blind eye to this. It was called ” Poofter Bashing” they roam around in the nights around parks . night clubs , gay cruising areas or even on the streets and violently bash them. Many gay people in rural Australia or what is called the bush or outback used to run away to the cities or commit suicide due to the hostility they faced. Even many members of the church used to make regular homophobic statements eg; about Adam and Even and not Adam and Steve, one of them, now very high in the Catholic church ironically now facing charges. However within 30 years this has changed , due to proper education information and social reform that came from within the society, when many realised , gay people are just like them and they are their close friends and relatives, that like most western countries , they overwhelmingly ( 80% or more) went and voted to legalise same sex relationships. All this despite many powerful right wing personalities and churches stating otherwise.

    Please understand that in the same way that comments on butterflies are offensive to some people, so is the conduct of butterflies deeply offensive to some other people and religions. Unfortunately people cannot have an alternative view without being discriminated and harassed. We must now subscribe to the fads of the day or be ostracized. This is a violation of the human right to an opinion and conscience and to associate, and free expression. If I think butterflies are bad, I have the right to say so.

    Just mentioning the facts.

      Yes a generation ago many whites found all people of colour too very offensive, is that also correct and acceptable. Now they realize their error. Most Sinhalese find Tamils very offensive this is why they rejoice at their discrimination is this also correct? If people find butterflies or their behaviour offensive, it is their own problem and not the fault of the butterfly and should try to correct themselves and their behaviour instead of opening their mouths and making a fool of themselves, especially if this person is the president of the land, who should know better and is there for all the people of the land and this includes Tamils , butterflies and moths and not just for bigoted Sinhalese Buddhist Fascists and other religious dinosaurs.

    According to “my book” this whole issue is meant end by next week, which depends on the success/failure of Sirisena’s assassination.
    I can’t keep quiet. That is why I am repeating this. I even know the programme post-assassination. Details are not necessary. The President has a crucial one week.
    Now I know why Ranil is holing inside Temple Trees. It is not because it is the Official Residence of the PM. It is for the safety of his life. I understand the electricity of TT is disconnected (I believe there are generators), office staff has been removed, cleaning staff has been removed and Ranil’s security is reduced to the extreme minimum. I totally denounce all acts of inhumanity. After all, he held (still holding) the High Office for 4 years in Sri Lanka. Is this the way we treat an “opponent”, a Prime Minister who was ELECTED to Office? If Ranil is “forced out”, he should seek the protection from an Embassy, any Embassy for that matter, until this issue is sorted out. People close to me want me to keep quiet. Why should I? Who knows, this same “death” may follow ‘me’ next year. My revelation will save someone’s life at a crucial moment on which the country’s future depends. Sri Lanka is not supposed to experience any major, tragic incident “at this point” that will make people sad, shocked and upset.

    When the Parliament meets again, I believe things will come back to normal.
    I saw some legislators “criticizing” the Speaker for maintaining that “until the majority is proved by one side, he is compelled to accept the previous administration” which is the best decision at a time the Parliament is prorogued arbitrarily/dictatorially, without even informing him.
    Some “senior” legislators have gone to the extent demanding Speaker’s statement be withdrawn!!!!!!

    I wish to remind everyone, the Speaker is the highest authority who controls House business. In other words, he is the “Referee” in all crucial or other Parliamentary matters whose decision is FINAL. The President or the SC has no power to question/intervene with his decisions. Therefore, when the Parliament meets on the 14th, the Speaker will CALL FOR AN OPEN VOTE, “at his own discretion” to decide which side has the majority. He doesn’t need the approval of the legislators to do so.
    The Parliament is the highest Representative Body (the voice of all citizens – “parle” means “to-speak” in French) which determines the democratic legitimacy of any government based on the majority in the Parliament. It is not “anybody’s private property” to decide how to carry out its business. The Speaker is the Legitimate Decision Maker in the Parliament whose decision is UNCHALLENGED.
    As a citizen, I urge the Speaker to EXERCISE HIS AUTHORITY TO THE FULLEST when the Parliament is reconvened on the 14th. He should not be deterred by the chaos, but call for a Vote, which is a MUST, and decide which side holds the legitimate government in order to continue its business. If there is any unruly behaviour, he SHOULD NOT HESITATE TO NAME SUCH MEMBERS, who are breaking the rules of conduct of the legislature.
    Finally, I wish the Speaker lot of strength!!!!

    May be I am naive on various symbols associated with sexual preferences. But I do not see anything sexual in referring to a gang of butterflies. In spite of the fact that the local government election results did not tally with mandates give in 2015 January and August, no corrective action was done to restore the lost image. Obviously there was a gang cocooning RW blurring his political vision. If that set of people were referred to as the set of butterflies without alluding into sexual preferences then the argument that there was sexuality associated with it fails to sustain. In fact many years ago, when Sri Lanka had only the radio for broadcast, there was a serial drama by the name of “Kalu Samanallu”, literally meaning black butterflies. The black butterflies was clandestine organisation involved all kinds of anti-social activities. If one were to think in his wildest dreams that MY3 was thinking of the good old “Radio days”, considering the “Gamarala” mentality, then there is a chance that he was attributing this group with a name that sprung in the past. On the contrary, a Google search on homosexuality and butterflies in the internet refers to a considerable number of species of butterflies having homosexual behaviour. I do not think that the chap who cannot pronounce English names properly and making himself a joke in front of school girls has ever referred to the internet to give an intelligent and a biologically correct hint on homosexuality.
