Once in Brussels in the late sixites I saw a sign at a pub door which says "No Africans are allowed", and of course I was shocked, and I not a bit surprise if the sign still hold true today.
Sad to say that today's Belgians are still caught in a time warp when the combination of that country drab weather (summer or otherwise), and cold people, do not help them regain their respect when there are xenophobic Belgians like Thierry Rommel, the farcical roving ambassador representing the European Union (EU).
Rommel, who has a foul mouth, no pun intended he has bad breath I was told, and at one stupid press conference he may just have destroyed a small percentage of a positive impression that Malaysians may have for his country.
Looking at his picture, Rommel will always remind me of a face of any Belgian mercenaries and the butcher King Leopold II, who raped and plundered and massacred millions of Congolese, when the country was called Belgian Congo and under Leopold as a private company.
Leopold was so brutal that the Congolese Africans had no choice but to fight back.
IN the 60s we heard about how sad it was for white nuns being "raped" and "killed" by the "animalistic Congolese" and we just assumed the black Africans do not need out sympathy.
Well the truth was they did what they had to do because the Belgians killed, tortured them like animals.
So when nationalist like Patrice Lumumba, the first democratically elected Prime Minister of independent Belgian Congo, was assassinated many believe he was killed by the Belgian secret service, or even the CIA, or the Diamond cartel De Beer, for trying to free his people and to control his country's resources.
So Rommel, let me get one thing straight here, Europeans, as a race, have no compunction about killing or taking lives of others, you people have done it for centuries.
So do not open your mouth and tell your European lies again when you said Malaysia is living under Emergency rule and that there is no free elections, I have to draw a line here and I do not know who you have been speaking to, but you are wrong! I will not wish you a good life upon your retirement, but I wish that you will think of our sunny Malaysia when you are retiring and living in a home for the age somewhere in a drab countryside of Belgium that was built by the misery, sweat and blood, and tears of millions of Africans that your king and government have massacred! Good riddance, you fucking fascist!
