Barack Obama has praised the South African president despite the recent decision to seize land from white farmers without compensation.
In a speech delivered at the 2018 Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture in Johannesburg, Obama heaped praise on the South African president, who recently amended the constitution to allow people to steal land from white farmers without compensation.
During the speech Obama also called for a guaranteed income.
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.
Update: We have edited a previous headline and opening statement that suggested Obama directly endorsed the seizure of white farmer’ land. He did not. He endorsed the South African government, who are pushing ahead with the new policy.
