US government under Obama continues with
its diabolical attacks on the traditional
family in Africa, with its insistence
on abortion and gay rights. The US posture
is colonial imperialism at its worst,
imposing its corrupt agenda on an already
rise up and resist this demonic yoke
being imposed on you!
Why is Hillary pushing gay rights
9, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com)
- If the average Kenyan knew that their
favourite son, Barack
Obama, had declared June the Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender
Pride Month, they would simply
not believe it. Nor would they believe
that in his proclamation
for Fathers’ Day, he’d said
that nurturing families comes in many
forms, including being raised by two
“fathers” - even if neither
of them is the true father.
top it all, Hillary
Clinton recently told “LGBT members
of the State Department family”
that gay rights are human rights and
human rights are gay and that her first
concern for Africa is how LGBT persons
are treated on the continent.
“Our regional bureaus are working
closely with our embassies on this issue.
The Bureau of African Affairs has taken
the lead by asking every embassy in
Africa to report on the conditions of
local LGBT communities. And I’m
asking every regional bureau to make
this issue a priority. ”
was greeted with thunderous applause
in Foggy Bottom. But I wonder if she
would dare to make this announcement
in Nairobi. Indeed, it is fortunate
that the US does not have an embassy
in Mogadishu, because if the word got
round that THIS was the African priority
for the present US administration, there
would be a repetition of Black Hawk
Down. And not only in Somalia.
course, most Africans are completely
unaware of Ms Clinton’s agenda.
They sense no danger to their way of
life from Uncle Sam’s quirky obsessions.
But they should. Issues
like these are achieved covertly, patiently
and using the legal systems. And before
the electorate knows what’s happened,
these new “rights” have
been enshrined in a Bill of Rights.
Vice-President Joe Biden’s recent
trip to Nairobi seemed part of an
effort to impose Uncle Sam’s values
on Kenyans. It was a typical
operation: arrogant and extreme security
measures, chaotic traffic jams, and
the token visit to a Kibera slum. He
went, at huge expense to the US taxpayer,
to boost the proposed Kenyan Constitution,
and promise that “once it’s
approved” his boss will make his
first official visit to Kenya.
proposed Constitution leaves the way
clear to sign the right to abortion
– and later on, gay and lesbian
rights -- into the new document without
passing through Parliament. From an
African point of view this seems to
be one of the top priorities of the
often perceived by outsiders as the
most “Western” African country
after South Africa, is being used as
a guinea pig. The perception is mistaken.
Only some sectors of youth in the capital,
Nairobi, are Westernised, by Afro-Americana,
especially rap, rock and reggae, which
fill in a cultural gap and are a sign
of protest against the older generation.
the cosmopolitan coastal resort of Mombasa
staged a strong public protest when
two “gays” tried to “marry”
recently in a suburb, Mtwapa, known
for its strange characters and commercial
the pattern seems
clear: first apply pressure to Kenya,
then move on to other East African countries.
Uganda has already had its knuckles
rapped by Clinton over its Anti-Homosexuality
the truth about all this were to get
out, the embers of anti-Americanism,
which have been smouldering since the
invasion of Iraq, might burst into flame.
Africans are ambivalent about the US.
“Let us in to share your wealth,
expertise, high standards and your experiment
with democracy,” Africans say.
“Your hand-outs are welcome too,
provided they reach the people they’re
intended for, and provided that there
are no strings attached. But leave us
to run our own affairs, and do not interfere
with our culture, our values and traditions.
We may not have got our act together
politically and economically, but we
know what is acceptable behaviour and
what is not. So leave us alone!”
rights, a priority in Kenya? When we’re
starved for food, education, basic health
care, shelter, food, work opportunities
and humane working conditions, and accountability?
Pull the other one!
