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.
Here is a partial list of the strategic initiatives they agreed to:
- 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.
Since 1994, the Boers have been subject to random killings, rapes, and property crimes by members of the Youth League of the ANC and others. Here is an excerpt from their statement by Genocide Watch:
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.
What is even more disturbing is this statement by Hillary on July 24, 2012 at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum Forward-Looking Symposium on Genocide Prevention. She had the perfect opportunity to forewarn and telegraph South Africa at this symposium prior to her August trip, as she specifically mentioned several nations that were on the brink of genocide — but South Africa was conspicuously absent from her litany.
Third, we are enhancing our civilian surge capacity. We already have personnel trained to analyze conflicts and defuse potentially violent situations. Now we will be using those personnel to focus on atrocity prevention. We have deployed our Civilian Response Corps to countries such as South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Sri Lanka, and Kyrgyzstan.
When you factor in the prolific references to “race” by Obama’s surrogates, it makes one wonder what in fact they have in store for this nation. Joe Biden‘s recent comment about placing people back in chains is an overt reference to our nation’s racial past.
However, what is more telling is this video from MoveOn.org, named “REVEALED: THE GOP STRATEGY.” (Hint: it’s racist.) To wit, Obama surrogates are purposely fomenting racial hatred against the GOP and conservatives in this nation. We also have the suppression by the MSM of all the black-on-white assaults and killings in this nation (reported only by Joseph Farah on WND and other conservative outlets).
It leaves me to wonder whether Hillary’s mission was a fact-finding tour to see firsthand how one actually instigates racial hatred against others. I wonder: would her and Obama’s stance be different if the Afrikaners, the Boers, were anything but white?
Without belaboring the point, we know the left has a long and bloody history of genocide in the 20th century. I cannot help but wonder what is around the corner when our own government will not condemn these atrocities for what they are.
