“MUGABE’S BLACK NOSE”
Oh, I can’t say that, can I? Naughty, naughty me.
And I’d repeat it except that it’d drag me down to Mugabe’s racist level.
MUGABE – HYPCRITICAL, UTTERLY DISHONEST, LYING, RACIST – AND THAT’S JUST HIS NOSE
From this March 2002 BBC debate (the article doesn’t mention the ‘pink nose’ jibe), the fifth comment down mentions it and the double-standards we all gladly swallow:
Was rather annoyed to hear Mugabe telling Blair to keep his “pink nose” out of Zimbabwe’s affairs. I believe if Blair had told Mugabe to keep his “black nose” out of Britain’s affairs then Blair would be called a racist bigot. Why is this label not being used against the obviously violently anti-white racist Mugabe???
“…rather annoyed? Raging with ‘white’ hot anger more like. All part of being western, you know – self-destruction an’ all that.
In March 2002 told Blair to “go to hell” and keep his “pink nose” out of Zimbabwe’s affairs.
PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe has told British Prime Minister Tony Blair to “go to hell” for criticising him in the House of Commons in London.
With one week to go before a presidential election, Mr Mugabe’s invective against Britain is growing more extreme by the day. He launched his latest attack while campaigning in rural areas.
Responding to Mr Blair’s criticism of the violence and repression Mr Mugabe has used in his election campaign, the Zimbabwean president told the British PM to “keep your pink nose out of our affairs”.
“Go to hell,” he said. “Our people have decided and that is what matters to us. It’s not their [the British Government’s] right or responsibility to decide on our elections.
“We don’t decide on their own, and why should they poke their pink noses in our business?”
Has anyone mentioned to him that a good proportion of our noses, even in government are NOT pink?
Mugabe also said in February 2007 that he was really looking forward to Blair’s departure expecting better things from Brown.
The reason Mugabe hates Blair and now also Brown now that South African president Zuma’s task to de-sanction Mugabe’s Zimbabwe has failed is obvious –
Mugabe fears and feared the strong Blair- & now Brown-led governments.
But Cameron’s Conservatives – well, they’re OK. They never mention foreign policy.
Any policy… much.
And in today’s Zimbabwe, in a follow-up to his Land Reform programme, white business people and foreign-owned businesses in Zimbabwe are being required by law to sell a controlling stake in their companies to black Zimbabweans, or face jail. Officials and government leaders will likely benefit from that arrangement as before, not the ordinary person in Zimbabwe.

Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe Thursday said his country would have better relations with London if the Conservatives win the next elections.
“We have always related better with the British through the Conservatives than Labour,” Mugabe told journalists.
“Conservatives are bold, (Tony) Blair and (Gordon) Brown run away when they see me, but not these fools, they know how to relate to others,” he added.
Mugabe’s rant comes after Prime Minister Gordon Brown told South Africa’s Jacob Zuma in London that Zimbabwe’s targeted sanctions would not be lifted until progress was seen in the power-sharing government.
Zuma, who is the mediator in Zimbabwe’s fragile unity accord, wants the sanctions lifted.
“We have a better chance with (British Conservative leader) David Cameron than with Brown,” said Mugabe.
Relations between Zimbabwe and London have been strained over the past ten years, after Mugabe’s government started seizing white-owned farms, under his controversial land reform laws.
In 2002, British former prime minister Tony Blair’s government imposed targeted sanctions on Mugabe and his inner circle — including a travel ban and freezing of bank accounts — following allegations of a rigged election.
“Blair is a downright liar, utterly dishonest, hypocritical,” the veteran leader said.
OTHER ONGOING GOINGS ON
2. “Heroism of now” – Foot c/w Blair – referring to…
Chris Dillow […] many examples, concluding thus:
The 1964-70 Labour government was obsessed with what we now know to be an utterly trivial matter, that of sterling’s exchange rate. And Ted Heath earned himself the nickname “the Grocer” in part because his election campaign concentrated on food prices. Compared to all that, it is the Blairite age of liberal interventionism that seems heroic – for good or bad – not Foot’s era.
An Egyptian court in the southern city of Assuit acquitted this week four Muslims accused of killing 61-year-old Farouk Attallah on October 19, 2009. In broad daylight and in full view of witnesses, the killers fired 31 bullets to his head before beheading him, in the busy village market place of Attaleen, near Dairout, 313 kilometers south of Cairo. The dead body was then dragged in the street, accompanied by shouts of victory. Free Copts website published a video of the disfigured body (warning, violent graphic content: video).
What prompted the killing of Farouk Attallah was an alleged illicit sexual relationship between his son Romany and a local Muslim girl, Hagger Hassouna. A rumor that intimate photos of Hagger together with her lover Romany were circulating on cell phones in Dairout lead four members of the Hassona family to kill Romany’s father, after failing to locate his son, who had fled.
Besides the killing of Farouk Attallah, the arrest of the Hassouna perpetrators sparked on October 24, 2009, Muslim riots and collective punishment against all Copts in Dairout. Christian-owned shops, pharmacies, and homes were looted and burned (AINA 10-27-2009).
Although several hundreds Muslims participated in those riots, the police only detained 19, and these were acquitted on December 13, 2009 because of the lack of eyewitnesses and conflicting statements between the accused and the victims.
The majority of Copts believe the reason for the acquittal of Muslims is that although Egypt claims to be a secular state, in reality it applies the Sharia law which dictates that a Muslim who kills a non-Muslim must not be killed, because it is not reasonable to equate a Muslim with a “polytheist” (a Christian).
Enough of this bloody, BLOODY, BLOODY Islam-crawling behaviour!
Ahmadinejad says he will stick by Zimbabwe in the face of western sanctions. So there we go. Always good to know who your friends are.
Ahmadinejad: “Your nation’s resistance would remain as a golden leaf in history,” he said. “The Islamic Republic of Iran would remain by the side of Zimbabwe to the extent it can manage and proportionate with its share.”
“Illegally imposed pressure of the oppressor powers aimed at urging the Zimbabweans to surrender to their will is denounced,” added Ahmedinejad.
“The independence of Zimbabwe bothers them and they wish to exert their hegemony against your country as they did a 100 years ago.”
Mahmoud Ahmedinejad emphasized the need to expand ties with Zimbabwe as he voiced support for Zimbabwe against the Western-backed sanctions. He urged the implementation of economic agreements signed when President Mugabe visited in 2006.
“Rapid implementation of the previously reached agreements can pave the path for further expansion of bilateral relations in various fields more than ever before.”
Ahmedinejad said Iran will stand behind Zimbabwe to help it resist the so-called sanctions.
Iran has long denounced the “illegal and cruel pressures by western countries against people of Zimbabwe aimed at making them surrender”, said the Iranian President.
