Nigeria Exchange News Slams Obama

Noted Nigerian writer Paul I. Adujie penned a scathing column (dated July 20, 2009) that calls out the hypocrisy of Barack Hussein Obama and slams him for his speech in Ghana on July 11, 2009. Adujie raps Obama for his ignorance of history, his "pandering" to special interests, and much, much more, including a dig at Hillary Clinton. The headline of the Adujie piece asks, "Obama Publicly Shames And Ridicules Us; We Are Nonetheless Overjoyed?" Adujie is s prolific writer and a native of Nigeria. Note that Mr. Adujie's usage of American English is imperfect, which is to be forgiven as it is not his first language. All emphasis in the following excerpts is added. Obama, within one short week, gave a sanctimonious sermon in Ghana to continental Africans, and again, to peoples of African descent at NAACP convention in New York City, lectures that would elicit blissful chuckles from retrogrades degenerates revisionist such as Niall Ferguson, Rush Limbaugh, Newt Gingrich, Patrick Buchannan and David Duke. It is saddening that instead rebukes and repudiations, some Africans offered Obama thunderous applauses! American conservatives must be blushing with delight and immense pleasure! Obama a beneficiary of our collective past which he now cynically exploits at our expense to placate his political opponents, his statements in Ghana and at NAACP are rather strange. Africans and peoples of African descent ought to publicly repudiate Obama’s contemptuous stances on continental Africans and peoples of African descent. And let me be the first to inform Obama that a good number of African Americans who are currently unemployed, are not trying to be Lil Wayne or Lebron James, instead, these African Americans are college educated and skilled professionals. Obama’s comedic clich├ęs would have the world believe otherwise. Why do some Africans have this herd mentality of unreason, undiscerning and uncritical assessment of Obama abuse of all of us? Why does Obama reserve the "truth" for Africans and African Americans? Why did he not talk down to the Pope with whom he disagrees on abortion and stem cell research? Why does Obama not talk down the truth to the Israelis with whom he disagrees on settlement expansion? Why does Obama not talk down and tell the truth to the Russians about chechen and nuclear and corruption and Puttin's self-succession? There are persisting questions of legitimacy over Iran’s recent elections, Obama through his Secretary of State, Mrs. Hillary. Nobody expected Obama to bring cash or materials and certainly not his abuse. Obama is beginning to sound like a cynical puppet and an instrument against our people. Obama may be unable or unwilling to recognize the continuing impact of slavery, colonialism, racism on continental Africans and peoples of African descent. Obama must get off his messianic Whitehorse and lofty mountain of condescension! Wow. Imagine the outcry if Rush Limbaugh wrote that.
