The current situation of political intimidation, politics of fear and harassment shows you how desperate the incumbent regime is in fighting to retain power. The more stupid things they do, the more the court of public opinion is against them... they are sliding down the slippery slope of popularity with the voting public real fast!
He who knows, knows he knows, he is wise;
He who not knows, not knows he knows not, he is a fool;
He who knows, not knows he knows, he is asleep, wake him up!
