Let's say you don't like Panama. You think it's a third world shithole where nothing works and which is a magnet for low life and scum. You want to leave, find a normal place to spend your time. Wouldn't such be totally consistent with trying to sell your property? You sell your house and you leave, right?
Right. To anyone with dos dedos de frente this makes perfect sense. But not to scam pimp and terrorist PR flack Don Winner, of course. To him, disliking Panama and selling your property so you can leave are two completely contradictory things. Unless of course you sell your property through him, in which case we suppose all would be fine.
So there was this Canadian here, one Niels Hartvig-Nielsen, to whom the above applies. He hated Panama and he got rid of his property here and left. This then, was against the will of the Supreme Wanker, who wrote a lengthy diatribe about how bad Nielsen's behavior was.
And now it seems that things have heated up a bit on the interwebs, and Nielsen posted Don Winner's home address on one of those forums where expats waste their time in between drinks. This then prompted Winner to declare DEFCON 1, threat level red and what else have you:
"I take this as a direct threat against myself and my family. I am responding by reporting this Internet activity to both the authorities at the US Embassy, the Canadian Embassy in Panama because Niels Hartvig-Nielsen is a Canadian citizen, as well as the Panamanian law enforcement and judicial authorities. This is not the first time I've received death threats and I know exactly how to respond. Niels Hartvig-Nielsen is just another tiny little man with no honor or morals or values, who wanted to elicit a response from me. Taken out of context, he just posted my home address. Taken in context, it's a death threat. He's hoping someone will be mad enough or crazy enough to take action against me or my family."
SOUTHCOM, Don, you forgot to alert SOUTHCOM.
You see, Don Winner is so extremely well informed that he doesn't know that, even if there was a death threat made, it's the kind of thing that a corregidor handles and it won't get beyond that unless something real happens. Real, as in, not just inside Winners whining wanker-head. No embassy is gonna act upon Winner's wild fantasies. The police will just file his drivel in the circular archives and realize how right they were when they told this gringo knucklehead to stay away from their investigations.
And let's not forget that this yammering about "death threats" comes from the same coward little punk who once showed up at your editor's house, took pictures and harassed wife and two daughters, threatened me with a stun gun and then tried to escape when he realized the police was on his way to get him. And why did he do that? Because, he later said, he needed "proof" of my home address. Goose, gander.....
INSTANT UPDATE: Some people may have ideas about whacking the wanker. But even though there is no denying that this would instantly improve air quality in Panama City and the country as a whole, please don't do it. It's much more fun to watch him alive, struggling in agony to keep his grasp on reality and fight off the demons in his head and the giant bats circling his house.
