Elections 2022: Kataeb

So here we go again... Elections time! In may that is and campaigns have just started pouring in a very shy manner. We start off with the Phalangists or Kataeb. "Free economy or/and social justice #we_will_not_compromise" - do note, the "or" has been stricken through and made to look like an "and" but the trick is poorly seen visually from afar. The image below better illustrates this. Now how they plan to achieve this is beyond me. But hey some nice taglines could be interesting. Please note, I said it before and I say it again, in Lebanon there is no political advertising (I explained it here - and more exhaustively here - and I stand by my words). Interestingly the Kataeb has been painting itself as a party from the revolution (meaning whatever happened in/since October 2019 which was the start of the current turmoil - whether they wanted it or not).
