Former United States President Barack Obama has maintained a reasonably low profile since leaving office in January 2017. He has only made occasional public appearances and offered commentary on current global politics. When he does speak however the mainstream media lap it up and reminisce how great they believe the world was under his Presidency.
Obama’s latest public appearance was in South Africa to celebrate the 100th birthday of the late former President of post-apartheid South Africa Nelson Mandela. Obama was delivering the 16th annual Nelson Mandela Lecture in front of 15,000 South Africans in Johannesburg. His lecture was entitled “Renewing the Mandela legacy and promoting active citizenship in a changing world”.
The narrative we are fed about Mandela is that he was a noble campaigner against a racist white South African government who was a political prisoner for 27 years, once freed he became President South Africa once blacks had full legal rights and ushered in a new ear of racial harmony and equality.
The fact is that Mandela was avowed communist as a member of the African National Congress and founded its terrorist arm Umkhonto we Sizwe which translates to Spear of the Nation. His wife of 38 years Winnie Madikizela-Mandela tortured her own black brothers and sisters by necklacing those who were suspected of being police informants.
The reality is that Mandela’s South Africa is more racially divided than ever. The African National Congress that Mandela was a member of and that has governed South Africa since the end of apartheid has been riddled with rampant corruption and overseen a declining economy.
But the most disturbing development of all is that it has facilitated black retribution against the remaining white minority, specifically white farmers. One of new South African President Cyril Ramaphosa’s first acts was to support a parliamentary motion to confiscate white South African farmers’ land without compensation.
Julius Malema, the leader of the Marxist Economic Freedom Fighters has openly advocated white genocide. and members of South Africa’s parliament have sung the song “Shoot the Farmer, Kill the Boer”. As a result of these policies and rhetoric gangs are now torturing and murdering white South African farmers a rate of over one murder per week and a farm attack every day.
But did Barack Obama raise what amounts to white genocide and dispossession when he shared the stage with Cyril Ramaphosa? Of course, he didn’t. In fact, Obama through his coded speech believed that President Donald Trump was the real threat to people’s freedom and safety.
Obama warned, “The politics of fear and resentment and retrenchment began to appear. And that kind of politics is now on the move” and that we needed to “Look around — strongman politics are ascendant, suddenly, whereby elections and some pretence of democracy are maintained, the form of it, where those in powers seek to undermine every institution or norm that gives democracy meaning.”
Strongman politics is probably a more accurate description of modern South Africa and its politicians are creating fear and resentment of white people with deadly results. Contrary to hysterical leftists freedoms in the United States have not been curtailed, calling CNN fake news and refusing to take questions from them does not prevent them or any other news organisations reporting what they want or saying what they want about Trump.
Speaking of fake news Obama took aim at that as well “You have to believe in facts. Without facts, there’s no basis for cooperation. If I say this is a podium and you say this is an elephant, it’s going to be hard for us to cooperate”. You mean how international news agencies have tried to downplay the violence against whites in South Africa and people had to turn to the alternative media for the real facts?
Obama was right when he said “It is a plain fact that racial discrimination still exists in both the United States and South Africa” but in the current year, it’s not against who he thinks.
None of the mainstream media outlets who glowingly reported on Obama’s speech mentioned the fact that South Africa is in the process of ethnic cleansing and disposseition of whites and that Obama a champion of human rights failed to mention this with the nation’s President.
If Donald Trump had met any world leader accused of crimes against humanity and failed to mention those crimes with that leader we’d never hear the end of Trump’s supposed weak leadership and enabling of despotic regimes from the mainstream media.
Thankfully it is becoming increasingly difficult for world leaders and the mainstream media to ignore what is happening to whites in South Africa. There have been several rallies in Australia to call on our government to accept persecuted South African farmers as refugees. Lauren Southern recently debuted her documentary about white South African farmers Farmlands which has nearly 1 million views on YouTube The fake history and fake news about South Africa is no longer being believed. Nice try Obama.
