Obama Decries Killing to Harvest Body Parts in Africa as ‘Foolish Tradition’; Fails to See the Irony!

Wow. Our President (and his team) really are clueless, aren’t they?

On Monday President Obama was speaking to a group of young African leaders who were attending the Young African Leaders Initiative in Washington, D.C.

During his time with them someone asked about the killing of Albinos which has plagued Africa – Albinos are murdered and then have their body parts harvested to be sold for religious rites and in potions.

The questioner said it like this, “Persons with Albinism in Africa are being killed and their body parts harvested for ritual purposes. My request to you is to raise this issue with heads of state of African countries to bring these atrocities to an end.”

President Obama responded by condemning the barbaric activity.

“When I was in Africa, I said, there are important traditions and folkways that need to be respected that’s part of who each culture is — each country is — but there’s also foolish traditions and old ways of doing business.

The notion that any African would discriminate against somebody because of the color of their skin, after what black people around the world have gone through – is crazy.

It is infuriating and I have no patience for it.”

President Obama harshly condemned the grotesque and evil practice (as he should have), but obviously failed to grasp the greater truth. He has endorsed equally barbarous and much more expansive behavior here in the United States and around the world with his support of abortion. Moreover, he has thrown his full support behind exactly this practice of murdering and then selling body parts in his continued embrace of the practices undertaken by Planned Parenthood! In his response, Obama literally chastises himself for his “foolish” and “crazy” discriminatory beliefs that have led to the murders of more than 55 Million babies in America alone.

I won’t be holding my breath expecting him to see the irony in his response or the hypocrisy of his support of abortion.
