Hillary Clinton, the liberal darling of the left — and lately touted as the replacement for our “gaffe-prone” vice president, Joe Biden — has certainly proven herself to be a team player on Obama’s and the Democrats’ policy of division and opportunism in all things racial. She has just completed a trip to South Africa, where she discussed numerous issues with Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, South African minister of international relations and cooperation. The two politicians issued a joint statement for strategic dialog.
- the signing of a U.S. $2 billion declaration of intent between the Export-Import Bank of the U.S. and South Africa’s Industrial Development Corporation to provide credit guarantees to stimulate development of South Africa’s renewable energy sector;
- the establishment of a Global Disease Detection Center in South Africa, co-directed by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and South Africa’s National Institute for Communicable Diseases;
- a R5.2 million (U.S. $650,000) USAID program for judicial management and leadership program to support South African combating sexual and gender-based violence and build upon best practices that can be shared with other countries in the region …
You get the idea about what this statement and trip were all about: building ties in a troubled world by reaching out to our global neighbors. What was conspicuously absent was any statement from Hillary or Obama on the atrocities being committed against the Afrikaners in the region. Genocide Watch, an international alliance to end genocide, chronicles the crimes against the Boers by a member organization of the ANC (South Africa’s ruling party in power), and officials of the South African government are prompting Genocide Watch to place South Africa alternately between stage 5 (“polarization”) and stage 6 (“preparation”) of their genocide scale.
Over 3000 white farmers have been murdered since 1994. The South African police have not made investigation and prosecution of these farm murders a priority, dismissing them as crimes by common criminals. The government has disbanded the commando units of white farmers that once protected their farms, and has passed laws to confiscate the farmers’ weapons. Disarmament of a targeted group is one of the surest early warning signs of future genocidal killings.
My personal favorite discussion point between Hillary and South Africa is the two-billion-dollar credit guarantees for renewable energy. Good to know her priorities are straight in elevating a decidedly leftist green international agenda above egregious human rights violations.
When we have such tyranny and genocide happening in South Africa and Hillary is discussing “green energy,” we certainly know where Obama’s regime is on this issue: namely, tacit approval. A search of the State Departments website did not produce any condemnation for these acts or atrocities.
For instance, this video should curdle the blood of anyone, much less one from a “black” racial heritage, like Obama. In short, the president of South Africa is singing a song in January 2012 that talks about exterminating the Boers from South Africa. One of the most telling lines in the song is “the cabinet will shoot them with the machine gun.” I hate to break it to Hillary, but when the president of South Africa implicates his own Cabinet in plans for mass extermination, this government is organized to commit genocide.
And all Hillary can find to talk about is green energy?
Even worse, the Obama regime has clearly turned an official blind eye to such slaughter in the form of the recently renamed “fact sheets” on the State Department’s website on South Africa. These web pages make no mention of the Boers’ plight — another sign of tacit approval. > > > READ MORE
NOTE: I just want to ask ONE QUESTION: Where the heck is CONGRESS??? Does NO one have the COURAGE to call them out? NO ONE?
