Africa isn’t called the Dark Continent for no reason. Africa has forever been a politi- cal nightmare full of overt corruption, tribal warfare, genocide, murderous regimes and brutal dictators.
There is no country in Africa that truly respects freedom or the rule of law. The majority of countries in Africa are in economic ruin because of political corruption and a history ugly with cruel despotism. That’s why starvation and disease are rampant. AIDS is projected to kill as much as half the populations of some countries. Genocide is a way of life. There is little light in Africa…
Africa is an international scab. Bono of the band U2 advocates that if we forgive debt African nations owe, peace and tranquillity will sprout up mystically. The real problem is murdering, corrupt thugs and punks like Col. Gadhafi. Once we swat one of these African cockroaches or intervene in their civil war, where do we stop?
America can’t solve all the world’s problems, nor should it try. We have enough of our own problems to address without getting involved in a Libyan civil war.
The surprising analysis of Georgia state Rep. Bobby Franklin, a Republican. Franklin posted this as an update on his Facebook page; the page’s privacy settings have since been changed, but Think Progress saved the status update for posterity.
Franklin’s also tried:
to make gold and silver the only legal tender in America.
to disband all public education; to ban “oppressive” driver’s licenses and allow children to exercise their “inalienable” driving rights.
to legally redefine rape “victims” as rape “accusers”.
"If NATO (the U.S. Sixth Fleet in practice) can’t take out Libyan air defenses at no or minimal cost, we should all start studying Arabic and spending an hour a day with our foreheads pressed to the floor."
— Convicted felon, right-wing financier, fawning Nixon biographer (and British lord) Conrad Black tosses out an Islamophobic nonsequitur, shortly after asserting (quite wrongly) that Bill Clinton was a wuss in Bosnia and Kosovo.
The next time someone complains to you about “union thugs,” show them this. It kind of puts the lie to the idea that there’s any moral equivalency between progressive demonstrators and angry, hateful right-wingers.
Meet the Jacksonville, Florida, GOP mayoral candidate who’s joking about killing medical providers. “I mean, I’m not going to be politically correct,” he explains now. “That was a joke. This was an audience for this. This is a Catholic Church. I guarantee you they are 110 percent pro-life.”
BREAKING: “Pro-life” now means “pro-bombing stuff.”
