That Ahmadinejad wins the Mandela Peace Prize
Ahmadinejad is the President of Iran who supposedly rigged the election in 2009 in Iran, and suppressed riots and protests which rejected the election results. He’s is known for his anti-American stand, his a̶n̶t̶i̶-̶S̶e̶m̶i̶t̶i̶c̶ and anti-Zionistic stands. He is also trying to build a nuclear factory. The Western world and Israel claims its going to be a nuclear bomb, he dissents. He says its for civilian industrial use.
He’s known for his belligerent attitude. Him winning a Peace prize is laughable. This line means that in Lupe’s fictional world, Ahmadinejad would not be the oppressive leader that he is, and he would win the peace prize, named after Nelson Mandela, a famed peace bringer in South Africa, instead of after Alfred Nobel, the man who invented dynamite.
Lupe seems to think that Alfred Nobel is the last person a peace prize should be named after, even though Nobel was P.O.ed that his accidental invention was being used for violence and assassination attempts, and that the peace movement was very dear to Nobel’s heart and to him the peace prize was the most important.
