"Pity About Africa..."
variuos websites | 06-0103 | The Heavy Equipment Guy

Posted on 06/01/2003 5:11:38 AM PDT by backhoe

"Why do you keep posting this stuff? Nobody cares about Africa, anyway..."
...the truth is archived here on Free Republic, and I maintain that one
day, when things over there are too awful to be ignored any longer, those who
have eyes to see will read the stories here, and be appalled at the silence.
 
 
...and the "war-veterans", most of whom were too young to serve. Chaos and anarchy reign in Zimbabwe There is no rule of law, only Mugabe's rule...Hyper-inflation, government chaos and a persecuted minority sounds too much like Germany prior to Hitler. Peace marches & organized demonstrations will only give the corrupt regime an identifiable target.

Rhetoric of blame is now a white lie (AFRICA, HEAL THYSELF)
The Daily Telegraph ^ | September 3, 2002 | Tim Butcher
"I remember Africa in the 1960s, everyone was filled with high expectations after independence. Forty years on, Africa is a series of kleptocracies, many worse off than they were under colonial rule. Almost all of the common people in relative worse shape to the rest of the world than they were before independence. Africans after 40 years have no one to blame but their own leadership for their problems. The leaders want to deflect blame to the West. The West's not buying it anymore..."

It, actually $150 per;

So, Bambi’s 787 Billion Bailout is $7,500 per taxpayer.

[If Obama met Mugabe in receiving line; would he bow? Obama that is. . .(?)]/// Of course...Obama never met a dictator he didn't worship!

True. And Obama goes to great pretense, IMHO, when decrying the actions and MO of Mugabe. Obama; like the hypocrit that he is compelled to be; gives great and damning lip service as he articulates a moral revulsion - of sorts - for Mugabe. Am sure if one were to watch closely; an Obama 'wink' might be seen.

We know, or should by now; how Obama feels about Whites (beyond just the 'color; it's a 'colonial thing') and they get not a 'wink' but rather a finger message from Obama; and that is just for starters. . .More than a few 'hairs difference' between Obama and Mugabe; but little more than a few.

TEN YEARS AGO ON INSTAPUNDIT: Why are Western human-rights groups so silent on Zimbabwe?
http://pjmedia.com/instapundit-archive/oldarchives/2002_01_13_instapundit_archive.html#8728594

I don’t know how long I’ll keep this series going, but I’m encouraged by this email from a journalist (you’d recognize his name) who asks anonymity: “Very much enjoying these glances back. Strangely, though post-9/11, it was a much more innocent time. Pre-Iraq, and everything that went with that. Pre-Obama, too, though that’s not as relevant to the quaintness as the running references to Cornel West, another black American race-baiting fraud out of Harvard, make clear. What a wonder to see people like Andrew Sullivan, Josh Marshall and David Brooks taken seriously. Also fun to see references to ‘reader Eugene Volokh’ and ‘reader Stephen Green.’” Yes, there’s been a lot of water under that bridge.
