Elder Patriot’s POV – ICYMI – 8/5/18 Barack Hussein Obama traveled to South Africa to speak at the 2018 Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture. You can read a transcript of that speech here.
When Obama was done talking, Tucker Carlson pointed out the hypocrisy of Hussein’s words:
Obama began his remarks by thanking South African President Cyril Ramaphosa for, quote, “Inspiring new hope in this country.”
Now if you’ve been following what’s going on in South Africa you might be shocked by that because it turns out Ramaphosa recently declared that he will change the South African constitution and he will do it for the explicit purpose of persecuting a racial minority, seizing their land without compensation not because they committed a specific crime but because they are the wrong color – purely on racial grounds.
Thanks to policies like this many South Africans have already been murdered in race killings and many more are fleeing the country for their lives. It’s not covered here but it’s covered in the rest of the world and it’s real.
Obama knew all this. He described it as “inspiring.” And that should tell you alot.
He should be asked why he described it as inspiring. He never will be, unfortunately.
This comes as no surprise to Americans. The Obama’s – Michelle and Barack – seized on every opportunity to divide America along racial lines for eight long years. By April 22, 2016 Peniel Joseph was moved to write in the Washington Post that the racial conflict that resulted proved that.
But their divisive policies had nothing to do with leveling the playing field for blacks or any other minority. After all, according to Tavis Smiley when it came to the subject of race after eight years of the Obama presidency:
“On every leading economic issue, in the leading economic issues Black Americans have lost ground in every one of those leading categories”.
For Obama, like so many carpetbagger presidents before him, it was about enriching their large donors and themselves, all the while telling their supporters that they were working hard against those same forces to bring them justice.
The Obama’s came to Washington with little and now have an estimated net worth of $40MM and live in an $8.1MM home in the Kalomara section of Washington D.C. The Obama’s have also inked deals with the globalist elites that he served that will pay the Barack and Michelle upwards of a quarter billion dollars in the near future.
The accumulation of that wealth simply is not possible for a former community organizer and public servant unless he is corrupt. Harry Truman once said; “You can’t get rich in politics unless you’re a crook.”
This is why Obama is forever posing as a man of the people even though he is anything but. He told the audience in Johannesburg:
“Where globalization means, as it so often does, that the rich and the powerful now have new means to further enrich and empower themselves at the cost of the poorer and the weaker, [then] we have a responsibility to protest in the name of universal freedom.”
For Obama that meant using the speech to praise the murderous tyrant, South African President Ramaphosa who, according to Reuters, led the decision by the ANC’s top decision-making organ to push ahead with plans to amend the constitution to allow for the expropriation of land without compensation.
That means expropriating the land held by white farmers. This led to disastrous results in Zimbabwe in 2000 under strongman Robert Mugabe where food shortages became widespread.
But, like so many carpetbaggers before him, Obama couldn’t care less about black people, white people or any other people. He cares only about himself and the elites who put him in power.
So there was Obama telling his audience:
There’s only so much you can eat. There’s only so big a house you can have. (Cheers and applause.) There’s only so many nice trips you can take. I mean, it’s enough.
Just not for Barack Obama.
