You might be thinking, politicians are just like normal people who live their lives and do normal people stuff. But hey, you’re a little mistaken. Politicians do live their lives with families and go grocery shopping as normal people do. However, they can get away with so many things that are considered wrong in the eyes of the law and in our eyes too. Although it is wrong, they rarely ever get any repercussions.
The reason behind that is power. Power and money. Also, the fact that politicians sort of own law enforcers in a way. Even though law enforcers have to be fair in the matter of justice, they still turn a blind eye when a person of power does something wrong, even when they’re ingesting drugs like weed or using Delta 8 carts. If you’re still doubting this, then let me share a few things, just the tip of the iceberg, that politicians manage to get away with.
Yes, that’s right. Let me give you one example. Princess Diana’s death. People know the story of her getting killed in a “car crash”. However, the whole story and happenings surrounding the story were just too suspicious to not notice. Princess Diana was reported to have been pregnant with an Egyptian Muslim baby. So people conspire that the death of the princess was on purpose to prevent an Egyptian Muslim to be born into the royal family. There were conspiracies that the car the princess was riding in was tempered and the driver was paid to crash on purpose. Princess Diana also felt that she was going to be killed before her death. She believed that people in the royal family had malicious intentions because of her pregnancies. She also left a letter to her one-time butler for safekeeping. The letter mentioned that she knew of the plan and she was worried. In the end, it was only ruled as an accident and no one got any blame for it, despite the mountain of clues pointing to the fact that it was not an accident.
Almost every society on earth has tax charges and these taxes go into the pockets of our politicians. The money obtained from taxes is supposed to be used in the development of a country. However, some politicians have been reported to use that money for their own personal uses. Selfish personal uses, for that matter. When we, the normal people, go on a holiday, we use money from our own pockets. When politicians go on holidays, it’s been reported that they use money from our pockets too. The taxes. We’ve seen politicians get in trouble for this. But all they get is a little bit of shame and negative publicity and that’s it.
There have been countless cases of politicians being involved in adultery. Some have been caught and sentenced but most have been let off the hook. In 2009, Mark Sanford was caught visiting his mistress, a journalist from Argentina. Not to mention, he admitted to being unfaithful to his wife for over a year. He did resign his governorship but eventually, he made a political comeback as nothing happened. Adultery is not something that we can just let go but apparently, we just did.
When the people in any society commit hate speech, especially towards a politician, they get a fine or sentencing. However, politicians rarely get any sentencing of any kind when they commit hate speech. A good example of that is the former president of the U.S., Donald Trump. He not only publicly showed that he was a racist, but he was also openly misogynistic and just a bad person in general. Yes, he got a lot of negative publicity for that but nothing happened following that. He didn’t mind the negative publicity because he was the president. Even in the “Black Lives Matter” movement, he ordered law enforcers to attack unarmed civilians instead of taking responsibility. This also shows just how corrupted the police are.
Speaking of corruption, politicians are widely known for corrupting the police. This is the main reason why police or any law enforcer turns a blind eye when it comes to politicians. They bribe and shut them up with their money and power and leave no room for actual justice in a society.
