Now, isn’t it funny that anytime you put in front of them some facts or reasonable arguments against their Supreme Candidate, most Buharists now happily tell you that they are no longer moved by all that, because their minds are already made up? Don’t they know that only stones give such a standard response?
Why would anyone gleefully show pride in not being moved by superior arguments or superior reasoning or, if they do not see it that way, why would anyone feel proud not to engage with facts or opinion they do not agree with in a reasonable way?
Their first reaction is almost always to insult you and when you give them a little taste of their own medicine they bray like tortured donkeys in a psychopathic knacker’s yard!
They all seem in some kind of opium-induced amnesia about the personality they are attempting to sell to the rest of us to the extent that the worst crime going now in Nigeria is that you’re not sniffing!
They present him like God on earth deserving only of our silent acquiescence or very, very loud praises! They expect a coronation on February 14 and anything short of that can only be a conspiracy to stop God’s plan and, as their God has proclaimed, a call to the very bloody end of poor baboons and dogs!
Yes, the precipitate celebration would have been amusing were it not the dark atmospherics we see all over. Indeed, one of their members, Festus Keyamo, has actually called for the stoning and chasing out of President Goodluck Jonathan from campaign grounds as proof that we are a sane society!
Their idea of democracy is the execution of political opponents and the ridiculing of the Office of the President as far as that office is still occupied by a man they’ve chosen to call the worst of names.
In fact, it looks like they’ve concluded plans to bring down all the walls of Aso Rock and cart off all furniture, curtains and utensils and replace them with brand new ones in one night, just so they don’t get a whiff of the one they’ve termed the usurper.
The more worrying thing is that nobody in the leadership of this horde is stepping back and looking at where all this is leading.
Every one of them seem to think they’ve reached their destination and all that remains now is to draw out their swords and pass judgment on their political enemies in the name of the change conjured up in their rear mirror as they careen off their cliffs.
So is anyone taking a bet on how many oceans of tears we would be scooping up on February 15?
