As soon as I caught a glimpse of this news piece, I nearly bust a gut laughing:
Former Haitian dictator Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier laughed at the notion he was a tyrant and claimed in a television interview on Tuesday that he had introduced democracy to his troubled homeland.
“I was the first person to start a process as such in Haiti, a democratic process, it was me who started it,” Duvalier said in an interview conducted by Alicia Ortega and broadcast by the Spanish-language Univision network.
Yes, you started it all right – your country’s slide into decay.
This lunatic’s delusions about democracy may actually be catching: the African Union (AU) has a really crackpot idea about what peace means . They have called for Sudan’s tyrant-in-chief al-Bashir, to be exempted from prosecution by the Haig for crimes against humanity because he apparently played a role in sustaining peace and allowing a referendum to take place, as if that was something extraordinary for a leader to be doing. Pretty soon all tyrants will be claiming indemnity for such piffling considerations.
Whatever next? The ANC claiming that this sick system of nepotism, kleptomania and deceit we have in South Africa is a democracy too!
