The struggle must focus on the agents of tyranny in Diaspora that are nuisance on society. No agent of tyranny should disturb the peace of our people abroad as they do at home and get away with it.

The stool pigeons of Woyane in Diaspora are the worst character in the history of tyranny. Having the privilege to choice between freedom and tyranny they choose bootlicking for tyranny halfway around the world. They picked corruption over honesty and propaganda over truth. What make these modern day impostor unlike their counterpart in the past is they do it knowingly and willingly in the free world.
Before examining the behavior of these society’s nuisances some background information is necessary to understand them how they were reduced to server tyranny against the interest of millions of their people in order to deprive them any justification to feel they are worth anything but disgraceful.
The free world they live-in offers them many good stuff our people don’t have in the home country. Because of the misrule of tyranny many of us voted with our feet to leave-seeking freedom and safety. Some of the cherished things we enjoy in the free words are freedom of speech, equal protection under the law, the right to choice our representatives and petition our government. Moreover, we are privileged to enjoy the advance of what free society offers, including technology to strive to our potential. All the important institutions we didn’t contribute to build are available for us to live-in peace and make a living without fear. In contrast, the privileges they provide us none existent for our people we left behind.
Our experiences living under both tyranny and freedom make us experts in understanding the torments tyranny inflects and the benefit free society offers. It makes us aware to feel the pain of what our people exposed and the opportunities deprived under tyranny.
Not with Woyane’ bootlickers in Diaspora. They are serrated to take the low road pandering for a tyrant halfway around the world not only against our people at home but against us here in the free world. Like a jackass they traded their freedom for their belly and became an instrument of tyranny and show their face in public with no shame.
They even go extra conspiring to rob the most venerable people in collaboration with their beloved tyrant involving in all kinds of corruption. Then, to cover-up their transgression, they disguise their criminality and calling it-investment, development, business, helping the poor… with no iota of indignity. In reality, they are worst than street tugs only dressed up to cover their true identity. In that regard, they appear on staged Media to sell corruption as lawful enterprise and lie to one another to rationalize their organize criminality. Some fake their identity and credential. Others parade according to the tyrant’s preference to get whatever trickles downs out of the grand corruption.
These society’s vermin are not unique for Ethiopia. They exist in every society and strive more in tyrannical environment. In fact, they are the primary obstacle to freedom from tyranny. What makes the bootlickers in Diaspora different is, given choices they stuck with tyranny half way across the world than the freedom in the free world they live in. For an average person, it is difficult to rationalize their psychology make up to rush in the bottom given they are free to take the higher road.
The Founder and President of The Constitution Society, Jon Roland described the psychology of tyranny: ‘begins with challenges to a group, develops into general feelings of insecurity and inadequacy, and falls into a pattern in which some individuals assume the role of “father” to the others, who willingly submit to becoming dependent “children” of such persons if only they are reassured that a more favorable outcome will be realized. This pattern of co-dependency is pathological, and generally results in decision making of poor quality that makes the situation even worse, but, because the pattern is pathological, instead of abandoning it, the co-dependents repeat their inappropriate behavior to produce a vicious spiral that, if not interrupted, can lead to total breakdown of the group and the worst of the available outcomes.’
He goes on to describe the emergence and methodology of tyranny
‘The methods used to overthrow a constitutional order and establish a tyranny are well-known. However, despite this awareness, it is surprising how those who have no intention of perpetrating a tyranny can slip into these methods and bring about a tyranny despite their best intentions. Tyranny does not have to be deliberate. Tyrants can fool themselves as thoroughly as they fool everyone else.
Methodology of tyranny
Control of public information and opinion
It begins with withholding information, and leads to putting out false or misleading information. A government can develop ministries of propaganda under many guises. They typically call it “public information” or “marketing”.
Vote fraud used to prevent the election of reformers
It doesn’t matter which of the two major party candidates are elected if no real reformer can get nominated, and when news services start knowing the outcomes of elections before it is possible for them to know, then the votes are not being honestly counted.
Undue official influence on trials and juries
Nonrandom selection of jury panels, exclusion of those opposed to the law, exclusion of the jury from hearing argument on the law, exclusion of private prosecutors from access to the grand jury, and prevention of parties and their counsels from making effective arguments or challenging the government.
Usurpation of undelegated powers
This is usually done with popular support for solving some problem, or to redistribute wealth to the advantage of the supporters of the dominant faction, but it soon leads to the deprivation of rights of minorities and individuals.
Seeking a government monopoly on the capability and use of armed force
The first signs are efforts to register or restrict the possession and use of firearms, initially under the guise of “protecting” the public, which, when it actually results in increased crime, provides a basis for further disarmament efforts affecting more people and more weapons.
Militarization of law enforcement
Declaring a “war on crime” that becomes a war on civil liberties. Preparation of military forces for internal policing duties.
Infiltration and subversion of citizen groups that could be forces for reform
Internal spying and surveillance is the beginning. A sign is false prosecutions of their leaders.
Suppression of investigators and whistleblowers
When people who try to uncover high level wrongdoing are threatened, that is a sign the system is not only riddled with corruption, but that the corruption has passed the threshold into active tyranny.
Use of the law for competition suppression
It begins with the dominant faction winning support by paying off their supporters and suppressing their supporters’ competitors, but leads to public officials themselves engaging in illegal activities and using the law to suppress independent competitors. A good example of this is narcotics trafficking.
Subversion of internal checks and balances
This involves the appointment to key positions of persons who can be controlled by their sponsors, and who are then induced to do illegal things. The worst way in which this occurs is in the appointment of judges that will go along with unconstitutional acts by the other branches.
Creation of a class of officials who are above the law
This is indicated by dismissal of charges for wrongdoing against persons who are “following orders”.
Increasing dependency of the people on government
The classic approach to domination of the people is to first take everything they have away from them, then make them compliant with the demands of the rulers to get anything back again.
Increasing public ignorance of their civic duties and reluctance to perform them
When the people avoid doing things like voting and serving in militias and juries, tyranny is not far behind.
Use of staged events to produce popular support
Acts of terrorism, blamed on political opponents, followed immediately with well-prepared proposals for increased powers and budgets for suppressive agencies. Sometimes called a Reichstag plot.
Conversion of rights into privileges
Requiring licenses and permits for doing things that the government does not have the delegated power to restrict, except by due process in which the burden of proof is on the petitioner.
Many if not most people are susceptible to being recruited to engage in repressive actions against disfavored views or behaviors, and led to pave the way for the dominance of tyrannical government.”
The description and methodology Jon Roland outlined above refers to indvduals and groups under tyranny in a confined place it controls. It doesn’t apply for individuals and groups outside of the confine of tyranny. Then, why would Woyane bootlickers behave like a drunken sailors- submitting for tyranny by remote control? This voluntary surrender of freedom for tyranny can’t be explained by’ ‘pathological pattern of co-dependency’ or ‘authoritarian personality disorder’ syndrome as Ronald describe it. Therefore, committing heinous crimes in the free world on behalf of a tyrant is altogether a different animal.
Thus, the willing Woyane bootlickers in Diaspora are different breed on their own never seen in history the agents of tyranny. The only explanation one can come up with is monetary benefit that put them in unique criminal class category.
If one is not fearful to explore this phenomena as many seem to be the obvious criminality is on the wall for everyone to see. The clandestine activities the agents of tyranny engage in by violating many federal and local laws in the free world is yet to be explored. Collecting and laundering public money, falsifying their identity and legal documents are some. Using diplomatic privileges as well as asylum statue is another fraud they involve depriving Ethiopians our freedom here in the free world as well as at home.
For example, setting up front company and nonprofit organizations to collect public money without proper accounting to anyone is common. Unlawfully falsify immigration paper to get residency permit has been reported on the media in many occasions.
Whatever illegal activity they engage in they must be identified and face the justice with as much zeal if not more than the struggle to rid of the tyrant at home.
Recently, the agents of Woyane in collaboration with their counterpart at home waged character assassination campaign on Journalist and Freedom Advocate Abebe Gelaw for telling their tyrant for what he is in the free world. They filled the airwave with defamation of character and slandered his credential falsifying facts. They also circulated petition trying to deprive him his press credential from the National Press Club as their counterparts do on many journalist at home with impunity. They have been abusing our community with treats and slander for too long without much consequence for their actions. They polarized the community by front social, political and religious group on behalf of the tyrant. Yet, no one made them accountable so far.
Therefore, the individuals and the organization they represent must be identified. People have the right to know the agents of tyranny through out the free world. Concerned government and non government authorities must be notified about their intermediation and threat on the citizens of the free country on behalf of the tyrant. Appropriate legal actions must be launched.
In case of Abebe Gelaw, he must seek the names and addresses of his accusers since it is his right as a free citizen to face his accusers under the Constitution and the laws granted to him as a free person. He should let the public know the identity and there whereabouts of his accusers with all available Media available to him.
The clandestine bootlickers shouldn’t be allowed to use the privilege they have in the free world to threaten our safety and security and our rights to be free as agents of the atrocious and corrupt tyrant at home.
Legal task forces must be organized to explore their criminal activities from corruption to spying and everything in between.
