THE FOXES AND THE WOLVES OF THE 21ST CENTURY

“The wolf and the fox are both enemies of humanity; both are canine; both humiliate and mutilate their victims. Both have the same objectives, but differ only in methods.” – Malcolm X (el-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz, Addis Ababa, July 17, 1964

The single most deadly calamity to have befallen black people throughout the globe in this 21st century can be found in the person of Barack Obama, that rhetorical and deadly fox in sheep’s clothing. Indeed, humanity as a whole is the unsuspecting prey of this current black-faced head of the bloody, avaricious, corporate U.S. Empire.

Long before the devastating physical earthquake struck the tiny black nation Haiti, the debilitating earthquake of slavery, colonization, and revised 21st century neo-colonization was unleashed upon the peoples of Haiti (and the world wide African Diaspora) by the United States, France, Canada, and its additional concomitant partners in deceit, greed, and economic, political, and social / cultural subjugation. It is this ongoing earthquake which we must forthrightly and uncompromisingly also address. It is this ongoing earthquake that is shattering the very psychological, physical, and political existence of black people around the world.

In less than a historical heart beat the very meaning of the word blackness has been distorted into definitively supporting the economic greed and bloodlust of the 1%of humankind that exploits the needs, hopes, and human rights of the rest of humanity. Nothing could be more despicable or dangerous to this planet collectively and black people in particular.

Hard Lesson for Obama by Carlos Latuff

The single most deadly calamity to have befallen black people throughout the globe in this 21st century can be found in the person of Barack Obama, that rhetorical and deadly fox in sheep’s clothing. Indeed, humanity as a whole is the unsuspecting prey of this current black-faced head of the bloody, avaricious, corporate U.S. Empire.

Long before the devastating physical earthquake struck the tiny black nation Haiti, the debilitating earthquake of slavery, colonization, and revised 21st century neo-colonization was unleashed upon the peoples of Haiti (and the world wide African Diaspora) by the United States, France, Canada, and its additional concomitant partners in deceit, greed, and economic, political, and social / cultural subjugation. It is this ongoing earthquake which we must forthrightly and uncompromisingly also address. It is this ongoing earthquake that is shattering the very psychological, physical, and political existence of black people around the world.

In less than a historical heart beat the very meaning of the word blackness has been distorted into definitively supporting the economic greed and bloodlust of the 1%of humankind that exploits the needs, hopes, and human rights of the rest of humanity. Nothing could be more despicable or dangerous to this planet collectively and black people in particular.

Peace is now defined as unending war and economic exploitation. Hope is now defined as the endless pimping of the legitimate aspirations of the many, in service to the interests of the greedy few. The new watch word for the “terrorism” and exploitation by nation-states (particularly that of ‘America’ and her allies) is cloaked in the false rhetoric of “national security” and “change.” As bloody, capitalist, imperialistic wars and military occupations are waged against the peoples of Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, and Haiti (to name but a few)–all in the hypocritical and fleeting name of so called ‘democracy’ and freedom–the many continue to die for the few.

The economic, political, and cultural exploitation of Africa has been intensified under the rhetorical veneer of some fake “progress” in the21st century. Thanks to the subterfuge and greed of the filthy rich and their pawns, the masses of humanity have taken giant steps backwards. Much of the so-called black intelligentsia, in the United States and around the world, have cynically joined the ranks of those who consciously and callously exploit humankind. This is wholly unacceptable.

Like a grinning Cheshire cat, U. S. President Barack Obama, on behalf of his corporate / military puppet masters, spins his political and rhetorical sorcery via a web of unending deceit and certain death against the every day people of the United States and the world.

The time is upon us to, without compromise or quarter, organize and speak truth to power. The time is at hand when the corporate / military elite must be exposed and confronted. We’ve nothing to lose but our political and economic chains, as our lives—whether we realize or acknowledge it or not—are already on the line. The question to be answered is whether we will give those lives as cannon fodder on behalf of the systemic gate keepers or stand up as humans to put an end to this capitalist debauchery.

Capitalism is nothing more than systemic terrorism against the poor. We must actively choose to stand with humanity, not against it. Onward sisters and brothers, for our tasks are at hand!

  1. There are many articles appearing in various websites pointing out that US President Barak Obama pursues the agenda of the America’s ruling class.. However, these articles do not appear in mainstream media outlets. On the 1st or 2nd July 2008 I was on the South African Broadcasting Corporation’s Motsweding FM’s Sekolo sa Bosigo (Night School) radio programme hosted by Goitsemodimo Seleka (his email address is selekage@sabc.co.za). Some of the issues I raised was that Barak Obama won’t change anything if he became US president because there are those who control the US behind the scenes like the Rockefellers who do not stand for elections but are rulers at any rate and use marionettes like Obama. I went on to say that if Obama dared to disobey them then he will go the way of JF Kennedy or meet JFK’s fate. Responding to the question whether I thought the US was ready for a black president I responded that if Obama attended the Bilderberg Group Meetings then he can become US president. Seleka quickly googled and found that Obama attended those meetings. In November of that year Obama was indeed elected the first black president of that country which was founded on the blood, sweat and tears of African slaves which still continues to spread its imperialist tentacles on the African continent in pursuit of oil and has already placed its forces strategically around the globe including the African continent. Tomorrow (21 February) as we mark the 45th anniversary of Malcolm X, one of the greatest sons of Africa, let us remember the big fight he put up for Africa’s cause and the liberation of African Americans for which he paid dearly with his life. He succumbed in a hail of the assassins’ bullets at the Audibon in New York on the 21st February 1965. When Patrice Lumunba of what is now called the DRC was assassinated by the US and Belgian governments, Malcolm X was up in arms and condemnned the US government for the assassination. When Lumumba was assassinated JFK was US president but the assassination had already been planned by the previous administration. In 1963 when JFK was assassinated by the same people who had assassinated Malcolm X, journalists went to ask Malcolm X what he thought about the assassination. He replied: “As a farm boy myself, chickens coming home to roost have never made me sad. in fact, they have always made me glad”. This was wrongly interpreted by the captured western media as meaning that Malcolm X was happy about JFK’s assassination. But he was merely saying since JFK presided over the assassination of Lumumba, the chickens had now come home to roost. Malcolm X understood South African politics because prior to his assassination, he made a speech in Accra, Ghana in 1964 in which he urged Ghanaians that as they were partying, they should remember Sobukwe and Mandela who were in jail at the time. This information Sobukwe and Mandela can be found in his biography written by Alex Haley. Malcolm X was invited together with Che Guevara to address an Afro-Asian summit but the US government would have none of that. Ater Malcolm X’s assassination, his friends on the African continent were also assassinated they included his Kenyan friend Pio Tinto. Let the souls of our martyrs rest in peace.

  2. I noticed some minor errors and omissions in the article I wrote on Obama. I should have when JFK was assassinated by the same people who assassinated Lumunba and not Malcolm X since Lumumba was assassinated in January 1961 and Kenned was assassinated in November 1963. About the information on Sobukwe and Mandela I omitted the word ‘on’. It should read, ‘The information on Sobukwe and Mandela…” It is difficult when one uses a phone to write.
