To these white Supremacists, president Robert Mugabe is just another example of a tyrannical black autocrat who has ran the affairs of his once prosperous country aground, and demolish all the fine institutions left over by benevolent whites - who continue to carry the ‘burden’ of their unfortunate black cousins.
Deep within all these hogwash of racist lies is buried the fact that Zimbabwe is going through very rough economic patches as a result of the punishing economic sanctions Britain and her Western partners have imposed on the unfortunate Southern African nation because Mugabe has the courage to try to right the historical wrongs of European colonialists.
To call the West, plus its institutions – leadership and scholarship liars, is to be guilty of inapt language: they have done nothing but tell lies since the dawn of history. The West singularly remains the only branch of humanity that has consistently sought its own advancement at the expense of other people. Lying, cheating, stealing double talk and other chicaneries are acceptable to Western leaders so long as it advances western interests.
Because of its stranglehold on the world’s communication outlets, the West is able to continue to peddle its lies with impunity. And the fawning journalists at the service of the western press continue to unashamedly tell bare-faced lies about objectivity.

For those Africans who continue to buy into the lies the Euro-Press tells, it’s important to bear some important historical lessons things in mind: One lesson is that throughout history Europe has always claim to be what it is, in fact, not.

Thankfully, Africans were able to successfully wrest control of their lands back from European colonizers and empire builders. This is a feat that we must not try to belittle.
It must be galling indeed for Europeans to see that after all the weapons they threw in our directions, we managed to take physical possession of our land. It must be doubly agonizing for them when President Robert Mugabe started the revolution of land distribution in his country.
Suddenly, Western leaders and scholars discovered that Mugabe is a tyrant in the mold of, no not Idi Amin, but Hitler himself. Again, history refuses to support these jejune attempts to paint black white. Before he began his land red-distribution, Mugabe was a darling of the West. He was lauded by the Western press as example of enlightened black leaders- the so-named New Breed African leaders!
Today Western press continue to lampoon Mugabe, but they only need to go back to their own archives to read what they were writing about the man before the land reform began. And let’s be mindful of the fact that the Queen of England herself decorated Mugabe with a Knighthood in 1994!
When the trick of a Knighthood failed to persuade him no to go ahead with his land reform programme, the British leaders and their western allies decided to break him. Contrary what

Why was it that when that accursed ruthless empire-builder, Cecil Rhodes, was cheating African chiefs of their land, Western leaders and scholars didn’t raise a voice in protest? When that stiff-necked racist Ian Smith was brutalizing the indigenous owners of the land in

According to the ZDERA,
There we have it! Western leaders, through their press, keeps telling us the lies that they are fighting for democracy and human rights in Zimbabwe, but according to their law, all they want is the maintenance of white privileges. As Cynthia McKinney, one of the few African-Americans in the congress fumed: “To any honest observer,
