It is often said ‘Hatred Often Times Lay In Wait in The Darkness of Desire’: like “Mental” illness. The general public should understand the role of manic depressive disorder and paranoia in crimes of genocide.
Dr. Wireko-Brobbey is obsessed with NPP. He hates the leadership to death, is outright rudeness to the Party and its Leadership, and always trying to flirt with opponents and saboteurs to the point that he thinks it is not odd.
Tarzan tries to make friends with the Party’s opponents and asks to be invited out. He talks behind the Party’s back, goes on his wild sessions and ranting description, tries to spew evil things and a campaign to vilify the Party. He has been caught between his own damning crusade by looking through a negative mirror and stuff. When he does talk about the Party he always gives some backhand compliment.
Anywhere he ends up together with the Party, he goes out of his way and tries to cut in when the Party is speaking to someone or about issues of importance.
The NPP Party has tried being nice but he just gets worse. Tarzan is also a compulsive liar and I even think once he was not able to get hold of the Campaign Manager-ship, hell broke loose around every household belonging to the NPP.
What the hell is his problem? Why won’t Dr. Wireko-Brobbey just leave the NPP alone? Sometimes the things Tarzan says and does scare some of us about the “proverbial death skeleton” that haunts and hound people. Tarzan just obsessively hates the Party which gave him the platform to prominence.
Even well-behaved opponents find most of his utterances very weird. Some are of the opinion that his reason and the choices that he constantly raises up lacks logic and even find his sudden outburst and interest in them weird.
I can’t figure out why the Party cannot get him off its back? Can’t the NPP Party do anything? I don’t think this sort of hate is normal. I mean it is one thing to dislike someone but he spends so much of his time hating the Party and its Leadership that it just doesn’t seem normal, any diagnosis?
He sounds like he is completely jealous of the Leadership. I think it is about time the leadership gets him straightened up properly. There is the need to call him out in front of a lot of people not only the NEC and scolded.
What the Leadership should realize is that sometimes it takes a big event (such as public embarrassment) before someone like that learns their lesson. Like what was meted out to “Sir John”.
As attention seekers like that needs to be cornered and preached to. Just make sure it is a very public display so they are sure to remember it.
It will be in the good interest of the Party to get this malicious PhD off its back. We should recognize that obsessing over anything is an illness. It can drive you (and others around you) mad.
Maybe it should be pointed out to him in a confrontation that his obsession over the Party and its Leadership could mean that he is bipolar (having maniac or depressed periods) or having two different ideas and he should get that in check.
Hate and obsession to me, is what causes a lot of mental illness or stress. Yes, chemical imbalances in the brain can cause mental illness; especially some of the more genetically based ones, like schizophrenia and OCD (Obsession Compulsive Disorder).
On the other hand one can say; but what about depression, anxiety, eating disorders, injuring one’s self, etc.? Yes, those can all be caused by genetics as well, or loss, or many factors but to a large extent a considerable majority are also caused by hate. Sometimes mental illness can be prevented if people were not put down, bullied, called names, teased, ridiculed, abused, or made to feel unimportant, undervalued or worthless.
All that I want to drive home is simple, that obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), a type of anxiety disorder, is a potentially disabling illness that traps people in endless cycles of repetitive thoughts and behaviors. People with OCD are plagued by recurring and distressing thoughts, fears, or images (obsessions) they cannot control. All is due in part because of our inordinate passion to hate.
The anxiety (nervousness) produced by these thoughts leads to an urgent need to perform certain rituals or routines (compulsions). The compulsive rituals are performed in an attempt to prevent the obsessive thoughts or make them go away.
Although the tendency may temporarily alleviate anxiety, the person must perform the preference again when the obsessive thoughts return. This OCD cycle can develop to the point of taking up hours of the person’s day and significantly interfering with normal activities. People with OCD may be aware that their obsessions and compulsions are senseless or unrealistic, but they cannot stop them.
Why should people moderate their bashing or saying of things to such people?
Just listen to Dr. Charles Wereko-Brobbey he has warned Ghanaians not to trust any of the petitioners who filed the 2012 presidential petition when they talk about peace.
He says and describes Nana Akufo-Addo, Jake Obetsebi Lamptey and Dr. Bawumia as leaders who have no love for peace. He is quoted to have said:
“We can’t trust the petitioners. They openly say that they are ready to accept the verdict, but behind closed doors, their message is entirely different,” he emphatically stated on OKAY FM.
He ended his direct swipe on the petitioners by summarizing their actions as “talking peace but preparing for war”.
In my opinion, it was unwarranted and this is what causes pain. This is what causes low self-esteem and low self confidence and shame and fear and guilt for being yourself and hopelessness. This is what makes the world a difficult place for some people to be in. This is what causes some people to be depressed, have anxiety, starve themselves or puke or even kill themselves.
Whether these things are coming from classmates, parents, siblings, teachers, or whoever – it is bullying and it is emotional abuse! No one deserves it. There is no excuse for it.
One should ask Charles Wireko-Brobbey why he is dishing out all these senseless talk; and also ask himself why he is doing that.
Where did you learn the hate? Where did you learn that it is right to hate? Why are you hurting someone else? Were you ever on the receiving end of this? If yes, how did that make you feel?
Recognize that if you are talking to and treating someone in this way, you need help too. Whatever is causing you to act this way towards another person is coming from somewhere.
Don’t perpetuate the hate. It hurts everyone. If you are a tormenting, you need just as much help as the people you are hurting.
Think about it.
