Animal’s Hump Day News

Happy Hump Day!

The Obama Administration and Her Imperial Majesty, it seems, fucked up.  File this one under “Unintended Consequences”:  Africans are being sold at Libyan slave markets. Thanks, Hillary Clinton.  Excerpt:

Black Africans are being sold in open-air slave markets,  and it’s Hillary Clinton’s fault. But you won’t hear much about that from the news media or the foreign-policy pundits, so let me explain.

Footage from Libya, released recently by CNN, showed young men from sub-Saharan Africa being auctioned off as farm workers in slave markets.

And how did we get to this point? As the BBC reported back in May, “Libya has been beset by chaos since NATO-backed forces overthrew long-serving ruler Col. Moammar Gadhafi in October 2011.”

And who was behind that overthrow? None other than then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Under President George W. Bush in 2003, the United States negotiated an agreement with Libyan strongman Gadhafi. The deal: He would give up his weapons of mass destruction peacefully, and we wouldn’t try to depose him.

That seemed a good deal at the time, but the Obama administration didn’t stick to it. Instead, in an operation spearheaded by Clinton, the United States went ahead and toppled him anyway.

The overthrow turned out to be a debacle. Libya exploded into chaos and civil war, and refugees flooded Europe, destabilizing governments there. But at the time, Clinton thought it was a great triumph — “We came, we saw, he died,” she joked about Gadhafi’s overthrow — and adviser Sidney Blumenthal encouraged her to tout her “successful strategy” as evidence of her fitness for the highest office in the land.

Granted, it’s easy to screw up in this part of the world, which is fundamentally screwed up in the first place.  But President Obama and Her Imperial Majesty Hillary I really screwed the pooch, here.  Gadhafi was a son of a bitch, but he was a son of a bitch we knew how to deal with – and he was a son of a bitch who knew how to keep order in a part of the world where only a son of a bitch can do so.

Maybe we need to find and install more sons of bitches in that part of the world.  Here’s the question:  Is President Trump a big enough son of a bitch himself to do so?  I’m thinking he might just be.

And, while we’re talking sons of bitches, here’s another thought to ponder:  Who in the American Left, who are almost universally spun up on the supposed “oppression” of millionaire football players, will be the first to vocally condemn this burgeoning African slave trade?  Because so far, all I’m hearing is crickets.

    This was online more than 2 years ago, maybe far longer, when that mess is Mali was going on. Was that the Tauregs or Boko Haram, all the same to me. Back before Somali pirates I think. Not at MSM or Fox, but the info was out there. And nobody did jack, not even a #hashtag sign by the Mooch.

    I should live so long as to see the general public learn and accept that O and H were anarchist marxist jihadis, him by belief and her by corrupt greed, The two of them destroyed so much of the North African world from Gibraltar to Egypt to Syria, and let’s throw in Iraq too. “Arab Spring” my buttocks. They aided and abetted the enemy of all mankind as much as they possibly could, and flushed regional stability and a near win in the “GWOT”. “Traitors” doesn’t begin to cover it.

    • Agree in most particulars, but I wouldn’t characterize President Obama and Her Imperial Majesty as anarchists; I think they are quite the opposite. Both are statists of the most totalitarian sort; the State and only the State shall have control of all things, that is their view.

      And it’s an ugly view.

        What did they leave across North Africa other than anarchy? And I’ve always felt those “fundamental changes” sought to tear this nation apart and tear it down before building their tyrannical Super State. Yes, it was death by incrementalism, but when the rate of change curve starts to go vertical, that means all the old ways come crashing down, and that rather feels like anarchy. Plus, their buddies in AntiFa definitely are anarchists as well as fascists. Destruction first, then build utopia but only for the properly “woke” true believers.

        • Any anarchy they spread is just a means to an end. As for AntiFa, most of their rank and file are dumbass kids who wouldn’t last five minutes in a real anarchy – it wold almost be entertaining to see how fast the whining would start when their iPhones went offline.
