And now.. A few wise words from Mugabe...


.

"We are now being coerced to accept and believe that a new political-cum-religious doctrine has arisen, namely that There is but one politcal god, George W. Bush and Tony Blair is his prophet."

Every time I see that Brother...he looks just like my dad...I got to take him seriously. When I was a child, my dad, raised in a share cropping family in the Mississippi Delta and extemely poor, told me that the white man was the Devil. That was based upon his experiences...and I herd it lamented by several of Uncles on both my mom and dad side who were reared in the same county down their. Strange thing though...after about 40 years up North living in the hood and around young gangsters and drug dealers who show no respect for elders and life...he now sayt that these kids are the Devil. I say that they are the devils that the devils of his childhood produced.

Mr. Mugabe would be better served in extending full civil and human rights to his own country men then to spend time condemning the west. He won the most recent election by default because the opposition sat out in protest of the widespread corruption in the electorial process.

For some reason those of you who are supportive of Mugabe's attempts too root out the "Western" influence in his country are too blind to see how much his policies are in fact doing much of the same things that you condemned in this country. Please note - he is doing this to Black Africans.

Please Note:

This post was not about Mugabe and his policies.
Also...
Please Note: Only a mere quote of his was discussed.

For you to run off and take that as someone being "supportive" of Mugabe and his policies shows something wrong with some wires in your head. You should learn how to not assume things that you don't know and not to merely have a knee-jerk response to certain personalities.

Please Note: What you had to say was completely ridiculous.

Please Note: Try your lame "He's doing this to Africans" Guilt Trip tactics in forums that are at least appropriate for it - i.e. nothing suggested that Mugabe was to be taken "seriously" (hmmm... which would be why I laughed... and the original post was presented likewise).

Please Note: There are people you can call about your problem.

Amnesty blasts Mugabe over food crisis

http://www.reuters.co.uk/newsPackageArticle.jhtml?type=worldNews&storyID=603810§ion=news

LONDON (Reuters) - President Robert Mugabe's government is underplaying Zimbabwe's food crisis and may again use hunger to punish political foes prior to next year's parliamentary elections, a rights group has charged.

Harare has curtailed foreign food aid since May, forecasting a good harvest in the coming year. But some aid agencies say the southern African country could face further shortages.

"The government's claims have been widely discredited, and there is compelling evidence that serious food insecurity and hunger persist in Zimbabwe," British-based rights group Amnesty International said in a new report published on Friday.

Amnesty said the cessation of most international food aid since mid-2004 had left millions of people dependent on grain distributed by the state-run Grain Marketing Board (GMB), which researcher Audrey Gaughran said has a track record of using food supplies for political ends.

She told a news conference in Johannesburg that there were reports Zimbabweans had to show membership cards for the ruling ZANU-PF party in order to get food.

"In some case, the GMB has taken maize from an area and then failed to redistribute it, creating a food shortage in that area," she said. "This discrimination has mainly affected supporters of the opposition."

Amnesty says that although there were reports of Zimbabwe buying maize from neighbouring Zambia and South Africa, supplies might run out by the next harvest in April 2005, and the GMB has a history of depriving government opponents of grain.

In its report "Zimbabwe: Power and Hunger -- Violations of the right to food", Amnesty said tens of thousands had gone hungry in recent years due to "discrimination and corruption".

Amnesty said children as young as one had suffered from officials denying grain to supporters of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) but giving it to those who back

ZANU-PF.

The MDC, whose leader Morgan Tsvangirai was acquitted of treason in Harare on Friday, has accused Mugabe and ZANU-PF of a draconian crackdown in an effort to remain in power.

Once Africa's bread basket and an exporter in the region, Zimbabwe's agricultural production has dropped in recent years.

Neighbouring countries, also affected by poor weather and the AIDS pandemic, have also suffered food shortages and aid agencies say millions of people across the region will need food aid in early 2005.

The former British colony won scorn from Western countries for its chaotic redistribution of white-owned land to landless blacks. The government is also accused of rights abuses against opponents and rigging a 2002 poll.

Mugabe denies the charges, and says his government is being targeted for retribution and economic sabotage by foreign "neocolonial" forces opposed to the land reform programme.

Aid groups say that in addition to Mugabe's land reforms, which have frequently put untrained farmers in charge of prime farmland, weather and the AIDS epidemic have also hit Zimbabwe's ability to grow crops.

It is strange how groups like Amnesty international are praised by Negro-Cons and their white cohorts when Amnesty is attacking African leaders and African nations, however when Amnesty international point out the evil that the U.S. is doing all over the world and how the U.S. is complicit in other atrocities around the globe, the conservatives accuse them of being the arm for other nations. Scott, if you are going to quote Amnesty, make sure you check out all the charges they have against the U.S. and your boy Bush, then holla back.

I wonder if Nmaginate would be able to ISSOLATE the deeds of Thomas Jefferson, Bull Conner, and Strom Thurmond and just focus on the praise that SOME people might heap upon them for their good works in SOME areas?

I assure you that even Bull Conner rescued a few children from a burning building.

Yet when it comes to African leaders we must remove our standards for measure and yeild to the claim "the ends justify the means".

Mugabe's RECORD on HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES against BLACK AFRICAN PEOPLE cannot be overlooked just because he is condemning your fellow enemy Bush and Blair.

The opposition political party just sat out the last elections because of political fraud. I am sure that you will be protesting on November 3,4 and 5 if there is found to be fraud in this country.

When you are selective and contextual in your calls for justice then YOU ARE A FRAUD, my friend.

RENALDO... you're the only fake.
If the subject was Mugabe then we can talk about Mugabe. Trying to change the subject for whatever reason in order to give you an angle here is not going to help you.

If you want to talk about selective outrage, etc. then give me your running list of Outrages and make sure you don't miss a Got Damn ONE!! Once you start listing them, don't let me come up with one you did not select.

Simpleton... Fallacious angles don't work with me. I wonder if you can ever stay on the topic at hand or if you like, invite us to a topic you start about Mugabe somewhere where we can discuss everything that is everything about Mugabe. The idiotic assumptions that I somehow excuse or selectively ignore Mugabe's transgressions is something you can never substantiate logically. That's why you have to "wonder", asserting BS by way of suggestion.

You don't have freakin' clue what I have to say about those Hypocritical White Men you named... what I would say if a topic was presented in like fashion as the one here. Lighthearted fashion... i.e. you did see me cyber laugh didn't you? Did you even ask what it was that I really found funny? Or are you the typical Intellectually Bankrupted Rookie who will just assume what it is others think?

The latter is obvious.

The truth of the matter is, I found the Islamic inspired expression more funny than anything and that along with the prevailing emphasis conveyed was what I responded to, not instances or instigators of oppression and human rights violations.

Mugabe is not comparable to Bush/Blair.
The Mugabe quote speaks of Bush's global quest for world domination of sorts... Now, unless you equate small time corner drug pushers with the head of a cartel then you have NO POINT!!

Trying to draw a moral equivalence won't help you.

BACK AWAY FROM THE LOGICAL FALLACIES!!

"I assure you that even Bull Conner rescued a few children from a burning building."

Huh? You reason for relaying this?
You basis for saying this? i.e. something I expressly said that makes you feel this BS is warranted...

***Yet when it comes to African leaders we must remove our standards for measure and yeild to the claim "the ends justify the means".***

"WE"... motherfucka... "WE"
We haven't talked about Mugabe. We have not said anything to the effect that "the ends justify the means" as it relates to Mugabe or any African leaders. You're the only one discussing it because you have some aversion to Mugabe and, more likely, some aversion to someone talking about Bush, etc.

I could personally give damn about Bush. I don't get into personalities - presidents included.

Grow some Intellectual Balls and based your BS opinions on something I actually said, not sh*t you assume I think.
