Rhodesia Marks 30 Years Of Communist Occupation

Last Sunday marked 30 years of Communist rule of Rhodesia, which was renamed Zimbabwe after being taken over.

At a public ceremony marking the occasion, Marxist dictator Robert Mugabe, responsible for the wholesale slaughter of Matabele tribesmen who opposed his rule and the racist eviction of Whites from their farming homelands, called on his subjects to “foster an environment of tolerance.”

“As Zimbabweans, we need to foster an environment of tolerance and treating each other with dignity and respect irrespective of age, gender, race, ethnicity, tribe, political or religious affiliation,”  Mugabe said.

Mugabe then announced he would continue with a new program whose objective is to steal White-owned businesses and hand them over to Black Zimbabweans.

Rhodesia, a first-world country that produced its own television sets and was “the Breadbasket of Africa,” has hit these points since being taken over and renamed Zimbabwe 30 years ago:

  • Inflation reached 231 million percent a year in July 2008 before the country stopped announcing figures. The IMF estimated thaion peaked at 500 billion percent in December 2008. Inflation was brought under control with the adoption of the U.S. dollar and other foreign currencies.
  • Until 2008, GDP had fallen every year since 2000. The IMF estimated that the economy shrank 14 percent in 2008 and 6.91 percent in 2007. The IMF said per capita GDP fell from $519 in 2000 to $268 in 2008. In 1990, per capita GDP was around $900.
  • The majority of the population lives on less than a $1 a day. 85 percent of people live below the poverty line and annual per capita income is less than $400.
  • Once the breadbasket of southern Africa, Zimbabwe now needs to import maize. About 7 million people – over half the population – relied on food aid last year.
  • Unemployment has been estimated at over 90 percent. Well over 3 million Zimbabweans are thought to have fled, mostly to South Africa, in search of work and food.

    I would like to ask, how can the world sit back and let a proud nation of people be ruled by fear. How could we allow Mugabe to get away with the massacre of around 35 000 Matebele. How can we allow Mugabe to let his people die from starvation, make them live with so little hope. How could we, and the older I get the longer I feel that the term “diplomatic immunity” is just a con word, sit and watch the leaders of this world do nothing.

    “We can do that because mugabe is black and communist. Were he white, the u.s. would have bombed him into submission in the name of “humanitarian relief to the people’ or ‘spreading democracy’ or whatever terminology was in vogue at the time. Also, Rhodesia was of no immediate use to the jew controllers, so the mass murders went unnoticed.
    Notice that we went to the ‘aid’ of the ‘kuwaiti people’ tho…

    @ John

    I agree with you up to the point of “jew controllers”. You need to go put your tin foil hat back on.
