The tenacious propagandist

 Congratulations
 You’re the tenacious propagandist
 A tape recorder mindlessly repeating
 The words and actions of others
 You blame the dark-skinned immigrant
 For everything wrong
 In your country

 You blame the protester
 Every time the police
 Crushes his skull
 People point out
 The vast discrepancies
 In your «reasoning»
 You keep on chanting
 Your insane support
 Of the tyranny in your country
 Of oppression incarnate

 Nothing can rock your stance
 You claim Muslims are the terrorists
 Even though white Christians
 Are proven far more violent
 Xenophobia and Islamophobia
 Are just words to you
 Distant echoes without significance

 Congratulations
 You’re the quintessential watchdog
 Of the ruling order
 You’re the most tenacious
 Honorable racist and Nazi possible
 The tenacious, irrational propagandist
 Striking again and again and again
 With pride and dignity
 In your deluded mind
 Your reward is in the mail
 Your medal is firmly attached
 To your overblown chest
