Ok I was waiting all the time , all those weeks if not months to write this post about the upcoming presidential elections.
I was waiting till the moment Field Marshal El Sisi would become Mr. El Sisi and would announce. Despite I knew that he would do it , some people were insisting to give him the man a chance till the last moment , may be he would use his mind and stick to his military suit but what you know. I won the bet and he turned to be not that smart after all.
Personally I do not know if I should cover these presidential elections in the blog as the old ones or not considering the fact that they are just so fake and here I mean by the word fake that all know its results from now : Abdel Fatah El Sisi is groomed to be the President of the Arab Republic of Egypt.
It is not even a surprise or shock or something we or rather the whole do not know. For months since July 26 , 2013 we knew that Abdel Fatah El Sisi was going to be Egypt’s next President especially with the huge systematic media campaign and growing presidential cult going on for months. For months there has been a systematic campaign to implant the idea that El Sisi was not only the savior or Egypt or the Arab world but also the whole world against the American Western Zionist Muslim Brotherhood control.
Despite his failure in Sinai , despite his failure to win that war he unleashed , many people still believe in him thanks to that constant systematic brainwash in the media especially in TV channels.
It is a farce when you see the army supporting explicitly a specific candidate not to mention that that candidate used to lead the army. It is a farce when you see regional powers supporting El Sisi’s candidacy explicitly.
It is enough said that the TV channels and Pro-military columnists only considered Hamdeen Sabbahi important just “ to show the world we got a democracy” despite “ El Sisi is going to be a president”.
Already I do understand up till now why Hamdeen Sabbahi would accept to be part of this silly farce when he knows the results in advance. For god sake he is not given a fair chance that like idol praised 24/7 in the media , let alone he is not backed up by an army or Rich Arab states. The news of El Sisi and his campaign are on the Front page of Ahram and you want me to believe that there will be a fair competition !!
By the way interesting the Pro-Military supporters and journalists are calling the people to vote in the elections in order to give it some sort of legitimacy. They know that empty polling stations would look so bad and would give him less power , less legitimacy than Morsi. Yes they care now for the Polls and ballot boxes legitimacy.
Anyhow despite I am sure that El Sisi will win , again for months many people look to him and the army as the real God of Egypt that would save the whole universe.
Sorry for wasting your time.
