As The Recording Of “Eternally Husseini” Winds Down, We Break To Pray For Bolivia’s Evo Morales

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Getting ready to smash the penultimate session for “Eternally Husseini” but I wanted to take a moment to send my thoughts and prayers to Bolivian President Evo Morales, who, according to Cuban media’s announcement today, will be heading to Cuba to undergo surgery in just a few weeks to remove a nodule in his vocal chords. Bolivia’s first Indigenous head of state is the apogee of revolutionary and has been a friend to both the Syrian Arab Republic and the Palestinian cause in ways that put just about every “Arab” and “Muslim” regime in the world to shame. He has given new meaning along with new strength to Anti-Imperialism and Anti-Zionism and every last one of us should be studying his remarkable life and incandescent achievements. Indeed, his homeland of Bolivia as well as the whole of Latin America and the Global South are eternally changed for the better because of his social and political ascendancy. Even though the operation is a minor one, after what befell El Comandante Hugo Chavez, we know that such things still need to be handled with the utmost vigilance. So get well soon Señor Presidente… Mouqawamists everywhere are pulling for you! VIVA EVO!
