Similarities of Obama and Despots

Obama despot

There was a telling article written a few days ago in American Thinker by L.E. Ikenga laying out the similaritites between how despots came to be (and act) in colonial african nations and what is going on right now in the USA with Obama.  Click on the above link to catch the full article but here below is the gist of how it wraps up.  

"Here are a few examples of what the British did in order to create (in 1914) what is now called Nigeria and what Obama is doing to you

Convince the people that "clinging" to any aspect of their cultural (tribal) identity or history is bad and regresses the process of "unity". British Imperialists deeply feared people who were loyal to anything other than the state. "Tribalism" made the imperialists have to work harder to get people to just fall in line. Imperialists pitted tribes against each other in order to create chaos that they then blamed on ethnic rivalry. Today many "educated" Nigerians, having believed that their traditions were irrelevant, remain completely ignorant of their ancestry and the history of their own tribes.    

Confiscate the wealth and resources of the area that you govern by any means necessary in order to redistribute wealth. The British used this tactic to present themselves as empathetic and benevolent leaders who wanted everyone to have a "fair shake". Imperialists are not interested in equality for all. They are interested in controlling all.  

Convince the masses that your upper-crust university education naturally puts you on an intellectual plane from which to understand everything even when you understand nothingImperialists were able to convince the people that their elite university educations allowed them to understand what Africa needed. Many of today's Nigerians-having followed that lead-hold all sorts of degrees and certificates-but what good are they if you can't find a job?   

Lie to the people and tell them that progress is being made even though things are clearly becoming worse One thing that the British forgot to mention to their Nigerian constituents was that one day, the resources that were being used to engineer "progress" (which the British had confiscated from the Africans to begin with!) would eventually run out. After WWII, Western Europe could no longer afford to hold on to their African colonies. So all of the counterfeit countries that the Europeans created were then left high-and-dry to fend for themselves. This was the main reason behind the African independence movements of the1950 and 60's. What will a post-Obama America look like?

Use every available media outlet to perpetuate the belief that you and your followers are the enlightened ones-and that those who refuse to support you are just barbaric, uncivilized, ignorant curmudgeons This speaks for itself.

America, don't be fooled. The Igbos were once made up of a confederacy of clans that ascribed to various forms of democratic government. They took their eyes off the ball and before they knew it, the British were upon them. Also, understand this: the African colonial who is given too much political power can only become one thing: a despot."

What an electorate!

  1. I really hope all President Obama HATERS will grow the hell up some day! He is not santa claus, the tooth fairy, or a genie. He is the First African American President…And that’s all.
    If you had unrealistic ideas, or a dream in your heart about this “country” that has yet to be realized. Then I suggest you walk up to a mirror and chew your own dumb nieve ass out!
    Based on over 200 years of prepration from previous US leaders what type of “change” did you truly expect.


  2. Asia – thanks for the comment on a post from July of 2009 wow. In any event, Obama is simply awful for the USA. It’s not about hate. And if there are people that “hate” him it is because we have to make one of two conclusions by his actions. Either a.) He is stupid to think that his policies will get people back to work, or b.) he is a smart guy and he knows that his policies will have precisely the opposite effect. Which do you think it is? Is he foolish or deliberate?
    It also has nothing to do with race. People don’t like him because of his policies, his ideas, and the direction he wants to take the USA. The same people that do not like Obama for these reasons don’t like Harry Reid or Hillary Clinton for the same reasons. It’s about ideas and direction.
    I think that he and his policies do more harm than good. In fact he and his policies harm greatly the very people that made him President and next time we have a presidential election perhaps the voting population with not be so foolish in it’s collective decision. It’s just a shame that the country has to go through this period which down the road will probably be known as “the Obama years” in the books of history. He has failed the people who supported him and he has fulfilled the warnings of those that did not vote for him. In short, he has been a disaster for the USA. Best to you.
