Bush doesn't have anything to do with Obama's vacations. Why blame him? At least Bush did his job as a president. Obama is just a front man as the first black president and made himself the worse president in history.

No surprise there.

I expect the brothers in South Africa to run Obama's sorryasss out of town when he gets there. H.E. Comrade Nelson Mandela has already refuse to meet with that pervert. Things will never be the same again. No American has ever been humiliated to the degree that Obama will be humiliated in South Africa.

If I could see you in person, I would put my foot in your mouth fro calling me a crakkka especially ion this context. Too many innocent Africans have died because of that fool. And that is why I personally called on my comrades in South Africa to demonstrate against him. He should have known tat we Africans network around the world, When you mess with of us in one place, we will get ya in another.

Africa Under Siege

Life without compass is self trespass By: IG. A. CHUKWU
More Quotes | Submit Quote

Africans all over the world had an historic opportunity to make a significant impact on the direction of Africa, starting last week when African leaders met in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.This opportunity came during the most critical time of Africa since the 1960s, as the African Union Summit convened.

The AU, formed in 2001 to establish the long-delayed government of Africa, is the direct offspring of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) created in 1963.With very critical issues facing Africa, leaders have to decide how best to deal with problems consuming Africa from Cape to Cairo and from West to East Africa. African leaders need to, finally and immediately, establish a union government of Africa as discussed for the last century.

When will Africa be for the Africans?

Reactionary Forces
We see reactionary forces occupying Africa. America is placing American troops in 35 African countries. France is now in Mali to stop the Islamists, with American support of course. But does it matter to us whether the Euro-Americans or the Islamists occupy the land; both are known to be devils and destroyers of African culture.

And what shall we say about the African governments in cahoots with the imperialists or globalists? The African politicians appear in lockstep with the colonisers and crusaders seeking control of Africa's precious minerals. From neo-colonialism of the last decades, we see they are in the mood to make deals with the devil. After all, Kwame Nkrumah taught us neo-colonialism is colonialism playing possum.

African nations collaborating with the occupiers are in the tradition of those who sold us to slavers. In many of these nations, the former revolutionaries have turned reactionary, yes, in league with the devil. We can almost say no one in this African quagmire is without sin. Who are the good guys, the African leaders, the Euro-Americans, Arab Islamists, who?

Warzone
Africa has become a warzone without end. Nearly 3 million people have died in Congo in a four-year war over Coltan, a heat-resistant mineral ore widely used in cell phones, laptops and play stations and other strategic minerals. Eighty percent of the world's coltan reserves are in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Often dismissed as an ethnic war, the conflict in the Congo is really over natural resources sought by foreign corporations &#8209; diamonds, tin, copper, gold, but mostly coltan'

Left wing?
Some of his views are specifically from extreme right still nowadays. Look the endemic anti-immigration stance of the right, for example. If the Right is against Latino immigrants, in the same way Hitler was against the Slavs, Jews and all non-Germans in lands he deemed Germanic.
There are a hundred of examples.
He was pro gun control- left wing. Anti-smoking- left wing. Wanted to control the diets of the German people to make them healthy- left wing. All power to the state- left wing. There are hundreds of examples.

Adolph Hitler belonged to the EXTREME RIGHT, and hsi history was rooted in rightwing nationalist and racist movements. Why do you think he suppressed and killed socialists, Communists, trade unionists, liberals, gays, and others. In fact, Hitler hated the SAME kind of people as do American rightists: racial minorities, liberals, Marxists, trade unionists, Communists, gays, intellectuals, etc. Same as the Repubiican Party hate list, or the hate list of the Christian Right.
Stalin DID emerge from the left, the Bolshevik left. He emerged from the AUTHORITARIAN left that claimed to be empowering the workers and peasants, the poor, but ended up enslaving them by means of their topdown authoritarian rule.

Isn't there a local Topix forum you can pollute with your racist drivel?

Click on the "Local News", type in a place like Thomasville, Alabama and have at it. There are lots of crack- and meth-addicted losers you can engage with.

It's interesting that M. Mafa describes ISLAMISTS as well as Europeans as devils. Yet ASSdurratin is a militant Islamist. Now if the European colonizers AND Islamists (which doesn't mean all Muslims) are the enemies of Africa, then doesn't this make ASSdurratin an enemy of Africa?

That is another one of your arrogant and stupid lies. You have provided no evidence to substantiate your stupid claims.
<quoted text>
True. The whole idea was to pre-empt and prevent English revolutionary ideas from infiltrating the francophone areas. Right now, y'all are trying to prevent French revolutionary ideas from, entering English. That is why Sekou Toure's works have not been translated.
<quoted text>
It was a distraction in French speaking areas. Clown, we are Pan-Africanists. That means have to communicate to French speakers as well as to English speakers. But, n-word-tude tried to prevent us from communicating to the French speakers. Of all the African members of the French parliament at that time under African Democratic Rally, Sekou Toure and the Malians were the only ones to join the Union of African States with Nkrumah. All those French speaking African leaders chose to remain French colonies and slaves. But Sekou Tore told De-Gaul: "we prefer poverty in liberty to riches in slavery." This is what we are talking about. While Sekou Toure was agitating for such positive and progressive revolutionary ideas and values, you punks were talking about n-word-tude. And you were doing it at exactly the same time that we were fighting for liberation.
<quoted text>
True. It was a miserable failure by the 1960's as all of Africa was becoming independent. So why do you keep throwing it in our faces when we are trying to talk about Nkurmahism? You are a traitor and a coward.
Given Nkurmah's numerous writings from an unmistakably Marxist standpoint, asking to "prove" that he is a Marxist is like asking me to "prove" Augustine was Christian or that the pope is Catholic. If you need proof after READING Nkrumah, you either are too dumb to grasp the obvious or in need of SERIOUS remediable education.
As for Negritude being a distration, again it began to wither--fortunately!---as REAL POLITICAL STRUGGLES gained steam. When a cultural movement outlives its creative moment, it is time to move on. Fanon, and other revolutionaries in the French colonies moved on. I do not deny it had some value as far as AWAKENING the intellectuals of the colonized territories. Anyone who has read Amilcar Cabral's RETURN TO THE SOURCE, knows their were similar cultural movement in Portuguese colonies. OK, for awhile in waking up mentally colonizied intellectuals. But it's a different matter once conscientized revolutionary nationalist intellectuals joined with the masses in the struggle for liberation. It's a no brainer for people who've read Cabral, Fanon or Toure

He'd be well pleased at the gutting of the Voting Rights Act. Disfranchisement would be deemed by Hitler as most appropriate for dealing with so-called "inferior" races like Blacks, Jews, Slavs, East Indians, etc. But for him that would be only the first step.
We all know what additional steps he's propose.

You cannot keep your head screwed on correctly for long. I am disappointed in you sis.

I am not an "Islamist". And Comrade Mafa knows me well enough to know that I am not. We have worked together on things like this for a long time. He sent me a copy of that article and I agree with it which is why I posted it.

Obviously Sekou Toure saw eye to eye with Nkrumah which is why we know for a fact that Nkrumah was not a Marxist despite the fact that a lot of people twist his words to make it seem as though he was a Marxist. Sekou Toure was definitely not. Nkrumah was a Christian version of Sekou Toure who was a Muslim. There were no Marxist leaders in Africa at that time or since. And Nkrumah was the leader of them all.

Blacks do not make good:

PRESIDENTS

Stick to shooting free throws and collecting welfare. Voting rights should be based on income taxes paid over a lifetime with bonus credits given to veterans and senior citzens. I am tired of supporting you peeps!

No, you can openly express your views and disappointments of President Obama. There is also blatant racial comments made about him also. Befor the election there was comments made about "putting white back in White House". Then there was the lovely displays made by people after the RNC convention last year when people hung empty chairs in trees. It didn't take a genius to see what they were implying.
