Don’t let the title fool you into thinking this solely about politics in the former Soviet, former Third-Reich or the current Fourth-Reich of the U.S./EU & UK. Though this is about Politics and Politico’s. After reading this story yesterday, I was infuriated and had to weigh in and post my own POV…on the subject.
Seems that a certain unfettered prick named Brian Cookson has THREATENED pro cycling’s riders with midnight or nighttime drug testing raids. Now, you may be one of those persons who believes that there is an actual philosophical difference between OTC, doctor prescribed and any and all other substances and their uses. That said, you may actually think this a good idea. You may also be a Statist and/or an Ideologue…but that’s another post for another day.
I any case, whether you agree or disagree, there is ONE reality that is undeniable, undisputed and despicable. And that is that when a governing body/agency or entity THREATENS it’s players/people, etc., there is no mistaking that action for what is truly is; An Intimidation tactic used to scare and control- that is made by an Authoritarian style of rule, ruler and/or personalities. This is the same EXACT type of tactics used by the more recent Totalitarian and former Third-Reich, the former Stasi and the USSR Regimes.
Let me give you an example of the evilness of what is clearly an Intimidation Tactic by the UCI.
In 1939 then Gestapo president Johannes Schafer had decided that the “only practical method” to finding and rounding up Jews was nighttime raids on the Jewish quarter.
Another example of Controlling Subversive action and Intimidation from the UCI comes from the most oppressive police force in a totalitarian regime, the Stasi.
The Stasi perfected the technique of psychological harassment known as “Zersetzung” a term borrowed from chemistry which literally means “decomposition” of the mind or psychological state of the citizenry.
By employing psychological harassment, nerve-racking and completely subversive techniques, does the UCI expect that athletes will just give up on trying to gain the unfair advantage? Or do they not think of the psychological and ultimately physical consequences in their crusade of thuggery…
The UCI is proving to be nothing more than a Politico type Mafia agency/body, that resorts to former Nazi and Soviet propaganda and intimidation tactics in order to curtail or stop athletes from taking banned substances and gaining an edge. The outright Propaganda that is used by the UCI (and WADA for that matter) is an important tool to win over the majority of the fans and public about ped’s and their usage.
These KGB/S.S. style of tactics serve to manipulate and unite the muppet fans and muppet public so that the UCI’s nefarious actions are not seen as completely despicable and totalitarian-like. Honecker and Goebbels would be proud of Cookson. Scumbaggery at its finest.
This erratic and somewhat psychotic behavior IS extremely UNPROFESSIONAL and also possibly borders on being illegal. I can only hope that someone brings a suit against this out of control agency. One not unlike FIFA. It seems to me that most of the governing bodies/agencies that oversee professional sport have become so CORRUPTED and criminal and that their utility has become worthless. FIFA, FIA, UCI among the more high profile ones.
In the end, it will be the decision of the riders and sponsors to step up and confront this megalomaniac and the scumbag agency that is the UCI and say, enough is enough. YOU do not dictate the rules, as is Dictatorship, you suggest and enforce with discretion. The UCI wants accountability for the athletes, but there are limits and boundaries. I hope the riders and sponsors have the balls to tell the UCI to basically go fuck themselves in a nice way of course, of course. It’s time that these agencies are reigned in and have their powers limited.
In closing, I will leave you with this; something to keep in mind, to always consider is that ANY government/governing body and/or agency is open to Excess and Abuse by the powers that operate it. It’s human nature. Therefore, we must not dismiss or accept this latest aggressive and abusive action by the UCI.
