No thanks – because it’s precisely why Americans are always said to turn their backs on the world:
About 50 parishioners were locked into the Assemblies of God church before it was set ablaze. They were mostly women and children. Those who tried to flee were hacked to death by machete-wielding members of a mob numbering 2,000.Thank you, Mr. Odinga. Which means it’s now time to trot out the idiotic buzz-phrases and fake adolescent 80’s poetry slam anger in the interest of Hope and Change.
The 2008 New Year Day atrocity in the Kenyan village Eldoret, about 185 miles northwest of Nairobi, had all the markings of the Rwanda genocide of a decade earlier.
Mr. Odinga and Mr. Obama were nearly inseparable throughout Mr. Obama's six-day stay. The two traveled together throughout Kenya and Mr. Obama spoke on behalf of Mr. Odinga at numerous rallies. In contrast, Mr. Obama had only criticism for Kibaki. He lashed out against the Kenyan government shortly after meeting with the president on Aug. 25. "The [Kenyan] people have to suffer over corruption perpetrated by government officials," Mr. Obama announced.Thereto we should find a growing appeal for over-exaggeration, emotionalism, mendacity, and the ridiculous assertions found out there in that gentle and caring world™®©, as lectured to us by our continental betters:
"Kenyans are now yearning for change," he declared. The intent of Mr. Obama's remarks and actions was transparent to Kenyans - he was firmly behind Mr. Odinga.
Mr. Odinga and Mr. Obama's father were both from the Luo community, the second-largest tribe in Kenya, but their ties run much deeper. Mr. Odinga told a stunned BBC Radio interviewer the reason why he and Mr. Obama were staying in near daily telephone contact was because they were cousins. In a Jan. 8, 2008, interview, Mr. Odinga said Mr. Obama had called him twice the day before while campaigning in the New Hampshire primary before adding, "Barack Obama's father is my maternal uncle."These aren’t the ties that bind, and when it comes to ridiculous requests and demands based on that relationship, I’m sure President Superman will ignore them, unless there’s some sort of extortion opportunity involved that ‘his divine munificence’ has opened himself up to.
Mr. Obama's judgment is seriously called into question when he backs an official with troubling ties to Muslim extremists and whose supporters practice ethnic cleansing and genocide. It was Islamic extremists in Kenya who bombed the U.S. Embassy in 1998, killing more than 200 and injuring thousands. None of this has dissuaded Mr. Obama from maintaining disturbing loyalties.Nonetheless Africans are sure to feel the hurt when the Hope and Change train changes and dramatically reverses US international policy in the interest of the caring and loving Bobos both in the US and in Europe.
