Obama says his personal salvation dependent on Africa’s

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Be wary of foreign powers, even United States so says our President who got in touch with his hatred for early colonial countries who thanks to them brought much of Africa out of the stone age. Built railroads, hospitals and schools. Ended much of tribal warfarism. For some reason, on Saturday morning, Fox news was showing Obama’s speech live that he was making in South Africa. It went on for 45 minutes before they broke away. It was a stunning speech that I doubt many will ever catch. A hate filled anti-american speech that went far beyond his earlier apology tour. (To posts today Egypt’s Morsi linked to Benghazi)

President Obama pledged $7 billion in aid  Sunday to provide electricity to sub-Saharan Africa, as he warned Africans to be  wary of exploitation by other countries, including the U.S. Why $7 billion, why not $100 billion if it means Obama’s personal salvation?

When we look at what other countries are doing in Africa, I think our only  advice is make sure it’s a good deal for Africa,” Mr.  Obama told reporters in Johannesburg.

“If somebody says they want to come build something here, are they hiring  African workers? If somebody says that they want to help you develop your  natural resources, how much of the money is staying in Africa? … Don’t just  assume that folks come here and they’re automatically benefiting Africans. And  that includes the United States. Ask questions in terms of what we do.”

But this is what caught my attention.The following quote said in South Africa. It speaks volumes of his motivation. This rang a bell that I had posted about earlier:

“I know now that something inside me was stirring at that time, something  important,” he said. “And that was the belief that I could be part of something  bigger than myself, that my own salvation was bound up with those of others.”

But on his three-nation tour, the president also has been warning Africans  not to automatically trust foreign powers offering help, including the U.S.

“When we look at what other countries are doing in Africa, I think our only  advice is make sure it’s a good deal for Africa,” Mr.  Obama told reporters in Johannesburg.

He said he was motivated to give a short speech about divesting from South  African companies after learning about Mr.  Mandela and other political prisoners fighting for equality in South  Africa.

“My own government in the United States was not standing on their side,” Mr. Obama said. “That’s why I got involved in  what was known as the divestment movement in the United States. It was the first  time I ever attached myself to a cause.

“I know now that something inside me was stirring at that time, something  important,” he said. “And that was the belief that I could be part of something  bigger than myself, that my own salvation was bound up with those of  others.”

The president and first lady paused at the prison’s logbook, (where Mandela was imprisoned) and Mr.  Obama wrote the following entry:

“On behalf of our family we’re deeply humbled to stand where men of such  courage faced down injustice and refused to yield. The world is grateful for the  heroes of Robben Island, who remind us that no shackles or cells can match the  strength of the human spirit. Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, 30 June 2013.”
