Depending on how they relate and react to the tragedy suffered by others, there are for big categories of people in this world. The first is that of the people who get involved emotionally and materially, and really give a helping hand. The second is that of the “righteous” who quickly put in a prayer and an “Amen!” for the afflicted and then follow the development of the issue with compassion. The third is made up of idiots who enjoy other people's misfortunes. And the fourth category is Diana Sosoaca. She neither helps, nor rejoices, and doesn’t even pretend to care. She simply just rambles on around the topic, shouting her own rants, the only connection between the event in question and her speech being that they both occur on the same planet.
Riding a patriotism that even Corneliu Vadim Tudor would be ashamed of and waving the anti-imperialist ax over her head while covering free expression with screams, the “people's senator” takes advantage of any news to repeatedly hit in the face the already disfigured Romanian democracy. Predictably, a tragedy of the proportions of the earthquake in Turkey and Syria could not be missed, so, armed with a telephone, two A4 files and the voice that awakens from the sleep of death even the ancestors of other nations, Diana once again climbed the Senate’s rostrum for a political statement, “People had to die and it’s not over yet”. In the six and a half minutes in which she assaulted the Senate’s loudspeakers, just about everything that's best on the conspiracy market at this time was ticked off: the pandemic, the killer vaccine, the global reset, geological and meteorological weapons, the criminal occult, Satan’s assault, Romania’s colonization, Zelenzky the criminal, etc.
The senator's conclusion? The earthquake in Turkey and Syria was caused by the West, who wanted to punish Erdoğan for defying them. I couldn’t find out, though, the fault of the poor Syrians.
The earthquake, a Western attack on Turkey
So, let's give the floor to Diana d'Arc: “Actually, [the earthquake] is an attack on Turkey by the world's biggest, who totally disliked being defied by Recep Tayip Erdoğan, the president of Turkey”. The senator does not say who the world’s biggest are - is there a fear here of not sharing Erdoğan's fate, maybe? – but explains what turned them against the leader in Ankara: “[…] [Erdoğan’s] speech in Davos, in particular, as well as the gesture of leaving in the middle of the conference, defying Schwab, did not remain echoless in the cold, hard world of the world's rulers”.
Diana Sosoaca jumped at the bait like a perch' (traditional Romanian saying from the banks of the Danube), not knowing that Erdoğan's untimely departure and the echo of his speech at Davos could not have taken place for the simple reason that Erdoğan didn’t even go to Davos this time. The incident actually occurred at the 2009 edition of the World Economic Forum . It should be appreciated, however, the adaptation of the nonsense to the local specificity, through an Eminescu-like poetic reference to the harsh and evil world of the world's leaders, themselves a kind of immortal and cold demiurges.
Fired up by the lyrics of the text, Senator Sosoaca throws herself even more forcefully into the stream of nonsense whispered by unreliable sources and what follows must be read a few times, in order to be properly understood: “If we look carefully at the pipeline map of Turkey, we will see that it is full of gas and oil pipelines [...]". So, the pipeline map is full of pipes. Not roads, not rivers, not cables, just pipes. Rereading the above statement, I begin to understand the senator's fans; I too feel like saying that “Mrs. Diana always tells the truth”. Or, to speak like Sandu Licuta Alexandru, one of the senator’s biggest fans: “God, how far have they’ve gone...don’t they have enough, do they need to kill thousands of Turks just for oil? May they rot in hell! Congratulations Madam Senator!”
However, the story happily goes further: several countries, including Romania, withdrew their ambassadors from Ankara (in reality they only temporarily suspended their consular services in Istanbul) and issued travel warnings for Turkey (in reality it was only about traveling to Istanbul), because the West knew that the earthquake would happen (in reality the decisions were made for fear of possible terrorist attacks in certain areas of Istanbul).
Quickly metamorphosed into a scientist, madam lawyer Sosoaca explains how the earthquakes did not have an epicenter, but an epiline (meaning a fault line, maybe?), forgetting that she uses science and television, sources controlled by globalists.
Diana Sosoaca’s vision of history
Senator Soșoacă did not limit herself to denouncing the big powers and their attack on Turkey; since she was at the rostrum anyway, she thought of tackling the war in Ukraine as well, a topic that she seasoned with the now eternal narratives that the Russian propaganda is also rolling out: Zelensky is a dictator and the main culprit for the war, Ukrainians will destroy themselves unless they accept peace in its Russian version, etc. ……and here comes the history lesson.
From the present day, Senator Sosoaca made a leap into the glorious past, shouting from the senatorial microphone, with a revolutionary pathos worth of the 19th century: “Enough, no more! Romania maintains its neutrality, regardless of what you, the traitors, promised. [...] It is imperative that all the nations, the peoples of the world, rise up together, wake up from comfort and carelessness and, just like in 1848, start the fight for liberation from the yoke of the psychopaths, the demented who have robbed us of the happiness and the beautiful world we used to live in.” To recall the revolutions of 1848 as a model of success shows that history was not your favorite subject in school, considering that all of them were stifled.
More recent history is obviously equally strange to Diana Sosoaca. It’s been almost 20 years since Romania became a member of the NATO military alliance, which obviously excludes neutrality. Even before, during the communist period, the Warsaw Treaty did not enhance our neutrality aura, and before the Warsaw Treaty there were the alliances from the two world wars, those from the interwar period, etc.; practically, the entire history of modern Romania is linked to alliances.
As for the statement: “We didn't attack anyone, so you should know”, there is room for debate here as well. We can recall, just in passing, the adventures of the Romanian army through the Balkans, Budapest and Odesa, and we can even talk about an attack on foreign territory (albeit legitimate) including in the War of Independence, the one in which we beat the Turkish brothers on the move. We don't mention anything about the multitude of fights and mutual invasions between Moldova and Wallachia, those are quarrels between brothers, according to Senator Sosoaca, just like the current one, between the Russians and the Ukrainians.
It’s a well-known fact that history is used by politicians and generals to mobilize new generations of patriots by resorting to the illustrious example of their predecessors; even our national anthem, “Wake up, Romanian!”, tells us so. This finally seems to be a class that the senator didn’t miss. Diana Sosoaca launched her own call to battle, making sure to add one last ingredient to her colorful speech: the fierce and vengeful God of the Old Testament.
“Take your claws off Turkey, take your claws off Romania, take your claws off the people of God!”, Sosoaca thundered. “This is a warning to the psychopaths of the world: If you need people to die, we need you to die! It's all or nothing! An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth! The Law of Talion.”
The senator concluded by introducing herself. The irony is, of course, unintentional: “S.O.S Romania Senator, Diana Ivanovici Sosoaca.”
Diana Sosoaca’s biased neutrality
One would believe that the next day, faced with the enormity of the aberrations uttered in the Senate’s plenum, Diana would have tried a mea culpa, an apology, or something like that. I want to believe that this would have happened, if the neutral sovereign did not have to honor an invitation to the Russian Embassy, where, among other things, Russia’s humanitarian mission in Donbas, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson was honored. Yes, you read that right, Diana sipped some (probably capitalist) champagne in honor of the Russian military's acts of “bravery” in Ukraine.
And once again yes, many compatriots congratulated her for this, because, as Napoleon would say, in politics, stupidity is not a handicap, regardless of which side of the ballot you are on.
