Here’s a measure of how President Robert Mugabe is destroying this once lush nation of Zimbabwe:
In a week of surreptitious reporting here (committing journalism can be a criminal offense in Zimbabwe), ordinary people said time and again that life had been better under the old, racist, white regime of what was then called Rhodesia.
“When the country changed from Rhodesia to Zimbabwe, we were very excited,” one man, Kizita, told me in a village of mud-walled huts near this town in western Zimbabwe. “But we didn’t realize the ones we chased away were better and the ones we put in power would oppress us.”
AT LONG LAST THE LIBS AT THE NYTIMES ARE ACCEPTING THAT THINGS WERE BETTER BEFORE MUGABE.
BUT THEY ARE NOT SO ACCEPTING ABOUT THE REAL REASONS.
- WHY ARE THINGS SO BAD?
- SOCIALISM. MUGABE HAS BEEN INSTITUTING SOCIALIST POLICIES AND THESE POLICIES HAVE DESTROYED THE ONCE GREAT ZIMBABWEAN ECONOMY.
- LIKE THEY DID IN CUBA AND NORTH KOREA AND RUSSIA AND CHINA AND EVERYWHERE ELSE THEY HAVE BEEN EMPLOYED.
- AS THEY ARE DESTROYING VENEZUELA.
- AND THESE ARE THE SAME TYPE OF POLICIES WHICH OBAMA AND THE NYTIMES SUPPORT HERE.
WHICH IS WHY THEY AVOID THIS ISSUE ALTOGETHER; DENIAL; DENIAL; DENIAL.
THIS NOVEMBER - WHEN WE TOSS ALL THE SOCIALISTS OUT OF WASHINGTON, THEY WILL WAKE UP!
