The left falls for it every single time. Without fail the left will lose the plot on some new socialist leader promising a quick fix and fawn all of him like a teenager in heat.
It happened with Hugo Chavez – the left crowned him a genius, the inventor of the third way only to see a dystopian nightmare emerge from their naive dreams.
And so it goes with Obama as well, who just got duped by another new leader of the left. Right after Barack praised this guy, the new leader turns around and starts a program to seize land from its owners and give it to the state.
History repeats itself first as tragedy then as farce.
From The Gateway Pundit:
Barack Obama traveled to South Africa in July and delivered a speech at the 2018 Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture in Johannesburg.
Obama also praised South African President Cyril Ramaphosa for quote, “Inspiring great hope in this country.”
Tucker Carlson pointed out these stunning comments on his show.
Tucker Carlson: Obama began his remarks by thanking South African President Cyril Ramaphosa for, quote, “Inspiring great hope in this country.” Now if you’ve been following what’s going on in South Africa you might be shocked by that because it turns out Ramaphosa recently declared that he would change the South African constitution and he will do it for the explicit purpose of persecuting a racial minority, seizing their land without compensation not because they committed a specific crime but because they are the wrong color… Thanks to policies like this many South Africans have already been murdered in race killings and many more are fleeing the country for their lives. It’s not covered here but it’s covered in the rest of the world and it’s real.
Via Tucker Carlson Tonight:
On Monday the South African government began seizing white-owned farms without compensation.
The South African government has begun the process of seizing land from white farmers.
Local newspaper City Press reports two game farms in the northern province of Limpopo are the first to be targeted for unilateral seizure after negotiations with the owners to purchase the properties stalled.
While the government says it intends to pay, owners Akkerland Boerdery wanted 200 million rand ($18.7 million) for the land — they’re being offered just 20 million rand ($1.87 million).
“Notice is hereby given that a terrain inspection will be held on the farms on April 5, 2018 at 10am in order to conduct an audit of the assets and a handover of the farm’s keys to the state,” a letter sent to the owners earlier this year said.
