Eskinder Nega told us, so boldly on a televised interview, that his illegal group called “balderas” took inspirations from the so called Tea Party Movement in America.
The Tea Party Movement, which anchors on its agenda of racism and white supremacism in soliciting political support did cause tremendous discords among communities even in such a matured democracy as that of the US.
Fetching experiences and taking inspirations from such racist group for crude appropriations in countries with no democracy, highly divided socio-political fabrics, and in its most fragile state as Ethiopia is a very dangerous and disastrous move which will have a very grave consequences for the country.
His inflammatory utterance that reduced the Oromo(pro) population in Finfinne to “an insignificant minority” on their own ancestral land and also his audacity to characterize the Ethiopian Muslims as “aliens” to the Ethiopian state— reminiscent of what the imperial regime used to do— could prove that he did indeed take inspirations from the Tea Party Movement and that he already started walking his talk on it.
