Skip to comments.How Trump stirred controversy in Nigeria [BBC Barf]

...The US president showed little understanding of a very complicated and intensely politicised crisis - one which has a battle between nomadic cattle herders and settled farmer over access to land and grazing rights at its centre.

"We have had very serious problems with Christians who are being murdered in Nigeria. We are going to be working on that problem very, very hard because we cannot allow that to happen." - Donald J. Trump
The President was addressing a conflict between nomads and settled farmers that is too complex for him to grasp? Let us review the past two months' activities:
2018.04.26 - Mbamondo, #Nigeria: 7 killed. "#MuslimTerrorists fire on a church and school, killing seven villagers."
2018.04.24 - Mbalon, Nigeria: 19 killed, 24 wounded. "Two priests are among nineteen killed when Muslim terrorists open fire on a #Catholic mass."
2018.04.05 - Asso, Nigeria: 2 killed. "Two young Catholics are gunned down by Muslim radicals."
2018.03.13 - Tse Igbe, Nigeria: 3 killed. "A Catholic teacher is among at least three people hacked to death."
2018.02.27 - Tambo, Nigeria: 20 killed. "Muslim terrorists burn down churches and kill twenty innocents, including a pastor."
2018.02.26 - Kasuwan Magani, Nigera: 12 killed, 20 wounded: "A dozen #Christians are reportedly killed in retaliation for rescuing two girls from #ForcedConversion."
I can promise you one thing: none of this was reported by the BBC -- nor the American #EstablishmentMedia. Are Christians in Nigeria -- or anyplace else in the world -- doing anything similar to Muslims? [And fighting back when attacked doesn't count.]
And the #British press are going to lecture our President -- and America -- for pointing this out to a Nigerian Head of State who obviously doesn't care?
How dare Donald Trump say anything about it -- not how dare the Nigerian government sit back and do nothing as #IslamicTerrorists slaughter the #Infidel wholesale on a regular basis?
Source: Not a week goes by w/o Islamic terrorists slaughtering Christians for their faith.
Yeah BBC has its new masters the Muslims who they don’t intend to offend.
BBC also making much of the following and on World Service Radio added that President Trump didn’t seem to understand it doesn’t require a crime for obstruction of justice charges to be laid:
1 May: BBC: Trump: Leak of Mueller’s Russia questions ‘disgraceful’
Tweet: Donald J. Trump: So disgraceful that the questions concerning the Russian Witch Hunt were leaked to the media. No questions on Collusion. Oh, I see...you have a made up, phony crime, Collusion, that never existed, and an investigation begun with illegally leaked classified information. Nice!...
He later tweeted on Tuesday morning: “It would seem very hard to obstruct justice for a crime that never happened.” ...
As for questions about collusion, there were plenty - including about Trump’s 2013 beauty pageant visit to Moscow, his involvement with any Russian real estate deals during the presidential race, his son-in-law’s back-channel outreach to the Russian government, his former adviser’s contacts with Wikileaks and his knowledge of any outreach by campaign aides “to Russia about potential assistance to the campaign”....
In other words, roughly a third of Mr Mueller’s questions cut right to the heart of the investigation into possible ties between Mr Trump’s team and Russia. The special counsel has plenty of questions - but the biggest one right now is: Will Donald Trump answer any of them?
Trump doesn’t understand colonies like the British do.
If the crime never happened, helping the prosecutor would be obstructing justice, wouldn't it?
What does this have to do with Christians being murdered by Islamic terrorists in Nigeria?
Well, he’s not as apologetic, and certainly not apt to sweep uncomfortable matters under the parlor carpet as the English are so wont to do (which led to innumerable and eventually insurmountable problems with the colonies). For Trump’s comments to elicit a telling response like that captioned below, warm the cockles of my heart so very much more than retreating into the impotent politeness of ‘farmers vs citydwellers’:
“In a statement, the director of the Muslim Rights Concern, Ishaq Akintola, said they were “prejudiced, parochial and unpresidential” and claimed that Mr Trump “is luring Nigerian Christians into bolder confrontation with Muslims”.”
In a statement, the director of the Muslim Rights Concern, Ishaq Akintola, said they were prejudiced, parochial and unpresidential and claimed that Mr Trump is luring Nigerian Christians into bolder confrontation with Muslims.
But when the IDF fought back, the Left was screaming bloody murder.
Why? Because they think the Muslims were provoked by the Infidel in some way. So to fight back only furthers the injustices perpetrated by us upon them.
And what did these Nigerian Christians do to these Islamic terrorists? Be anything other than a Muslim, that’s what.
