Barack Obama’s Gay Cultural Imperialism


All I can do is laugh at this story.

Barack Obama has repeatedly lectured us for seven years on being cultural imperialists. All values are relative values. What is right for us may not be right for someone else.

But gay values reign supreme in the Obama Administration. The result is that gays around the world and especially in Africa have been hurt by the crusading President’s desire for equality.

After an anti-gay law went into effect last year, many gay Nigerians say they have been subjected to new levels of harassment, even violence.

They blame the law, the authorities and broad social intolerance for their troubles. But they also blame an unwavering supporter whose commitment to their cause has been unquestioned and overt across Africa: the United States government.

“The U.S. support is making matters worse,” said Mike, 24, a university student studying biology in Minna, a town in central Nigeria who asked that his full name not be used for safety reasons. “There’s more resistance now. It’s triggered people’s defense mechanism.”


Well of course it is. It’s like Barack Obama lecturing Kenyans on gay rights. The most incredible thing is that Obama seems to think this is a universal value. I cannot wait for him to go to Saudi Arabia and endorse gay marriage. That is going to be awesome.

Keep in mind folks — this is not idiocy, this is arrogance with a side of maliciousness. And it is getting people harrassed, jailed, and killed. But he does not care.
