Robert Mugabe Dead at 95

Robert Mugabe Dead at 95

Black Racist former President of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe, is dead. He was 95 years old.

According to local news media,  the death was confirmed by two sources that he died in a hospital in Singapore on Friday morning. 

Human Rights Watch Southern African director Dewa Mavhinga revealed that credible family sources said the former leader had died.

Mugabe served as prime minister of Zimbabwe from 1980 to 1987 and then as president from 1987 to 2017.  Mugabe was forced to resign in 2017 after a military takeover.

He was a former guerrilla chief who took power after the end of white minority rule in 1980 and presided over a country whose early promise was eroded by economic turmoil and human rights violations.

While Mugabe blamed Zimbabwe’s economic problems on Western sanctions and once said he wanted to rule for life, growing discontent about the country’s leadership prompted a military intervention, impeachment proceedings and large street demonstrations.

During his tenure, Zimbabwe adopted a series of racist laws to strip White people of land ownership and give that land to Black people.  

Instead of continuing to farm, the blacks to whom the White farm lands were given, stripped the farms bare in many cases, selling-off the equipment, livestock, and other assets for instant cash, rather than continue in business.

This resulted in the country changing from "the bread basket of Africa" which produced most of the food on the continent, to a net importer of food and widespread starvation.

Zimbabwe remains a backwards, hopeless, less-than-third-world country, with widespread violence, economic poverty, and VooDoo religions that slaughter people and animals in ritualistic slayings.

    The ONLY sad thing about the sauces death of this murderous scumbag is that there was no Planned Parenthood in his mother's neighborhood. Bloodshed, rape, robbery, terror, oppression and disenfranchisement is what he will be remembered for. Perhaps, one day there will be a Rhodesia again. If so, along with South Africa, it should only be restored by absolute COMPLETE AND BRUTAL white dominance considering the horrors inflicted by these 80IQ, illiterate, jealous and envious pieces of crap. Not one grain of wheat should pass into the hands of the blacks there until they turn in all of the murders. Let them starve or cannibalize each other. Nobody should forget that Mugabe, in his ever present chutzpah called for the white farmers to come back. Yeah. Right. If the white farmers come back, they should hit every in of land with soil stimulants. That can be fixed but you need some fundamental education to do so...and that is non-existent there. No international food aid. LITERALLY let these bastards eat their own. I am sure many are doing so already. ONLY THEN can Rhodesia be restored.

    It is important to note one fact that seems to have been erased down the Orwellian memory hole: Mugabe did not take power from a white minority government. Following the Internal Settlement formed between the Rhodesian Government and those black nationalist movements that were peaceful, the interim state of Zimbabwe-Rhodesia was under a black majority-rule government under the leadership of Bishop Abel Muzorewa. This was formed following an election in which the vote was available to all Zimbabweans and in which all parties that were not involved in terrorism were allowed to participate. Mugabe's ZANLA was disqualified because it never renounced terrorism.

    The world did not accept the Internal Settlement nor did it recognise the black majority-rule state of Zimbabwe-Rhodesia. International recognition was contingent upon Mugabe being offered the opportunity to stand election. A new election was held, at which time ZANLA thugs terrorised the countryside (no anti-colonial freedom fighting involved. The targets were almost exclusively defenceless black villages) - threatening them that if they did not vote for ZANLA, then ZANLA would be back to kill off everyone in the village. The international community blocked any efforts on the part of the Rhodesian government to curtail Mugabe's intimidation campaign. As a result, Mugabe won the election.

    Make no mistake - Mugabe did not liberate "Zimbabwe" from a white minority government. He usurped a democratically elected black-majority government that both blacks and whites in the country found tolerable and then he spent his political life destroying the country.

      Would you say that success for Zimbabwe would have been more likely if Joshua Nkomo's ZAPU had been in power?

        William: Maybe, it is hard to say. I respect Joshua Nkomo for having renounced violence and for that he deserved a seat at the table, as the Rhodesian government had promised all those who resorted solely to peaceful means.

        Still, ZAPU was a socialistic movement, and Rhodesia (incidentally the only country ever explicitly to describe itself as "capitalist", albeit not totally correctly) did far better under UDI, a system, by the way, in which blacks and whites had the same access to the vote. It was a qualified franchise system, and yes, being wealthier and more literate in general, the whites had in practice a larger representation in government, but the system was never racist. Right from the beginning, a black man could theoretically occupy the office of the Prime Minister.

        I found the Internal Settlement tolerable, as did most Rhodesians, black and white alike, and Nkomo even remained within the system and law under the Internal Settlement. Still, as ZAPU, was socialist, I still think an Nkomo regime would have been far inferior in maintaining the Rhodesian economy and the rule of law. Just my opinion.

    It really reveals the soul of people to think that when the Koch brother died, there was talk of dancing in the street and many people (usually leftist scum or envious anti-rich types) took joy in the man's death simply because they did not share his political views and because he gave financial support to political causes with which they did not agree.

    Now that a true scumbag has died, there will not be rejoicing or the usual Schadenfreude, nor should there be. Robert Mugabe took a wonderful country that had been carved out of a wilderness that just 50 years later became a fully developed country in the heart of Africa - and turned it into a miserable ruin. However, once again, being on the Left means never having to say you're sorry. The passing of Mugabe the villain will not be met with vulgar displays of joy at the man's demise. In fact, I am certain there will be eulogies about how he united his people against imperialism or other such crap.

      Listen Paul, the Koch brothers are not Mugabe, but they're scumbags of their own class. There's one left and a third, I think who is a decent chap. They aren't even conservative, merely cut throat opportunists with a side of narcissism and psychopathy thrown in for good measure.

        Lloyd, I get that. I am not saying you have to like the Koch brothers. I used them as an example (maybe a bad one since emotions still run high) to compare the relative reactions of a given man's detractors when that given man dies. There will be plenty of eulogies for Mugabe, even though he had no redeeming qualities, while those people (like myself) who were against Mugabe certainly shed no tears for him, but we also don't rejoice at his demise. I am glad that he is no longer in power and can do no harm. In fact, when he was removed from power a few years ago, I was happy enough to let him live out his life in safety and dignity provided he never have any political office again, not even as dog catcher.

        Now, if it is as Copperhead says that there will be dancing in the streets (and there is sure to be some, I am talking on a large scale), and I do stand to be corrected, it will be a shame on those celebrating. You can tell the quality of a man by the actions of his enemies. Remember when Margaret Thatcher died? I really didn't have an opinion on her one way or another, but then after her death when a bunch of leftist hooligans started tearing up the street in joy throwing Molotov cocktails in celebration, it told me that she could not have been so bad.

        For us now to act that way and celebrate the death of Mugabe would only serve to vindicate him. We don't throw a party when we fumigate for vermin. We are simply glad the vermin is gone.
