What? No hashtag from Michelle Obama that says #Free Meriam Ibrahim Yahya Ishag Wani ?
As the horrifying story of Meriam Ibrahim Yahya Ishag Wani has evolved in Sudan, we have heard nothing from Barack or Michelle Obama. Maybe the silence is due to Malik Obama’s job as executive secretary to Sudan’s president, Omar Al-Bashir, who has been charged with genocide. Malik, known as ‘Roy’ around the toniest places in D.C., is Barack’s brother by another mother. He has a revolving door at the White House and is very close to our president.
[Malik] Obama’s alleged connection to Hamas’ attacks is through the Islamic Da’wa Organization (IDO) of Sudan dictator Omar al-Bashir. Bashir himself is an international criminal who has waged a bloody war against Sudan’s Christians and animists in Darfur, and who once harbored Osama bin Laden, but President Obama’s administration has sought to mend ties with him anyway….
As noted by Grumpy Opinions, “…It’s probably worth mentioning that the black slave trade is still alive and well in Omar al-Bashier’s Sudan. During his reign at least 20,000 South Sudanese Christians have been captured and sold into slavery, other estimates put the number at closer to 100.000….”
Worthy of mention because of the revisionist history that omits the role that Africans played in the slave trade, i.e., the role continues until this very day.
Worthy of mention because of a conversation that I had with my grandson just last weekend.
Upon his arrival, one of the first conversations we had began with him saying, “Grandma, mommy told me about slavery and how white people sold Black people into slavery.”
He learned about slavery in school last week but what he learned from school and his mother was revisionist history, which as I said omitted the role of Africans in the slave trade. Thus, I had to set the record straight so that he would know the truth, seek the truth and not become a victim of the Progressive plantation.
