Tunisia was the first country to erupt and then collapse under the pressure of the Obama-inspired Arab Spring in 2011. Those who followed those events closely will note something very familiar in this Reuters report about the current crisis.
Watch the Video Report, and pay attention to how the protests originated: “The protests, the biggest in Tunisia for months and the biggest to target Ennahda for years, were called by social media activists. No political parties publicly backed the rallies.”
You might well remember the trigger and coordination mechanism for the 2011 “Arab Spring” was social media. Specifically the U.S. government, President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton, working with Twitter and Facebook to use those platforms as a communication network for the radical Islamists to utilize.
Tunis, and the government of Ben Ali, was the first state to fall during the Arab Spring; the flames spread throughout the region, next striking Egypt, Bahrain, Yemen and eventually Libya. Hosni Mubarak (Egypt) and Muamar Kadaffi (Libya) were removed by radical elements, assisted by the United States, and replaced by the Muslim Brotherhood.
It does not seem coincidental to have another government collapse in Tunisia, making it yet again the first regime to fall; and the action, yet again, driven by social media.
Tunisia is a tenuous democracy at best.
We know the Intelligence Branch coordinates with the U.S. Department of State; and we know the intel branch has a public-private partnership between the U.S. government and Big Tech. Coincidentally the Tunis events happen, once again, as Obama enters his third term through Joe Biden?
This smells very familiar. Perhaps another coordinated effort by the people behind Obama in order to trigger a totalitarian government outcome.
Time will tell, if the U.S. government is using Tunis as a beta test again, only this time they are weaponizing the COVID Crisis and leveraging the vaccinations. NOTE:
(Reuters) “Our patience has run out… there are no solutions for the unemployed,” said Nourredine Selmi, 28, a jobless protester. “They cannot control the epidemic … They can’t give us vaccines.”
Last week, Mechichi sacked the health minister after chaotic scenes at walk-in vaccination centres during the Muslim Eid al-Adha holiday, where large crowds queued for inadequate supplies of vaccine.
After a year of wrangling with Mechichi and the leader of Ennahda, Rached Ghannouchi, who is also parliament speaker, President Saied declared the army would take over the pandemic response.
Some analysts saw the move as an attempt to expand his powers beyond the foreign and military role assigned to the president in the 2014 constitution. (read more)
Note how the embattled President moves toward the military solution?
Where has that familiar sentiment been expressed?
