“Bulls that feed fodder” | Al-Assad concludes the “farcical show” of presidential election with a TV speech broadcast, insulting revolutionaries
Bashar al-Assad, the president of the Syrian regime, appeared in a 10-minute TV speech broadcast concluding the “farcical show” of presidential election. In a media discourse, al-Assad insisted on disclaiming the revolution which started in March 2011 which was faced with excessive force by his security services, which later turned it into a raging war.
Al-Assad said “what we have witnessed was agitation of bulls. It is like the difference between a rebel that absorbs honor and a bull that feeds fodder, between a rebel whose way is honor and pride and a rebel that is fond of disgrace and shame. You have defined the revolution and brought back its brilliance after part of mercenaries, who lack honor and bear a Syrian passport, have defamed its name.”
