Cult of personality. Songs About Dictator Appeared 12:11, 09/03/2006
“One more line has been crossed - a border to the cult of personality. I watched Belarusian TV channel, and almost had a stroke. ALL of our well-known singers and singing a song “Listen to Your Batka” (father). They are singing it all together, in a merry and cheerful way. The feeling resembles the feeling of the people who saw the cult of personality of a famous figure of German history growing,” such a letter was posted in one of the Belarusian blogs. The matter concerns a concert “For Belarus!” broadcast by the state-run TV channel yesterday. Notorious supporters of the dictator, Anatol Yarmolenka and his daughter Alesia with a band “Syabry” performed as well.

For those who cannot download the song, we publish the lyrics:
He is a hard nut to crack, He wouldn’t teach you anything wrong, He can call to order everybody, He is really cool, He can easily redress all grievances, He is reliable and calm. When you look at him, you can easily see Who is the master in the house.
Refrain Na na na na na na… Listen to Batka! If you have problems Listen to Batka! If everything is fine… Listen to Batka!
