Aparthide, Sand Nigger Style: The Tunisian Model For A New Colonialism In Libya

“One only has to visit Tunisia and Libya and see the difference between the people of both nations.”

Tripoli, Libya — Since 19 March 2011, the United States, NATO, along with their running-dog Sheikhdoms have been waging a war without mercy against the Libyan Jamahariya. Pleas for mediation by the Libyan government have been repeatedly rebuffed. Some 10,000 sorties have been flown by American, NATO, and Qatari planes that have bombed civilian and military targets. The average American layperson has no idea why this war is going on other than Muamar Gaddafi has been demonized at the “Mad Man of the Middle East” and, now, he has added genocide into his ‘bad santa’ sack as a new inexpiable sin. The United States corporatized media makes j’accuse against Gadafi for the unfounded lie that he bombed his own people. This writer wants to know how many American news outlets have ever reported the bombing of African Americans in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1922? Who bombed North Korea, Cambodia, Vietnam, Panama, Grenada, Iraq, and Afghanistan and extinguished the lives of millions? The whole of the United States should be a no-fly zone considering its acts of genocide and state-sponsored terror against innocent people. Humanitarian interventions in Africa by Europeans is always a subterfuge for theft, mass murder, and sadism for the sake thereof.

Some experts argue the war is simply about the vast reserves of oil underneath the soil of Libya. Others argue that this unprovoked action is an attempt to steal control of the vast quantities of water that the Libyan people have gained access to and created a man-made river to quench the thirst of the cities on the Mediterranean literal. Academics of various opinions claim that Libya’s various pursuits to abandon the dollar for the gold dinar; liberate the whole of Africa from the IMF/World Bank; build an alternative socialist path to development; build the African Union; construct an alternative to the Mediterranean Dialogue; gather support for a multi-polar world free of Western meddling; lock multinational oil companies into thirty year concession contracts; open greater trade relations with the Chinese; and forge military relations with nations of Libya’s own choosing. This writer would contend that all of these activities, and those that remain unstated, contributed to this illegal war against the Libyan people and the Jamahariya. And there is another, larger goal: the enserfment of Libyan people writ large.

“Libya’s goal to create a New African World Order has infuriated the piratical and parasitic white supremacist laager of nations.”

This writer believes that the crusade to destroy the Jamahariya to reduce the proud people of Libya to slavish “Sand Niggers” in a neo-Apartheid society like their neighbor nation Tunisia. One only has to visit Tunisia and Libya and see the difference between the people of both nations. While in Djerba, I witnessed the arrogant European tourists acting like kings and queens while fawned over by poor working Tunisians. These European tourist, aside from being morbidly obese and arrogant, nearly lost their minds when my bare foot touched the water of the pool they were swimming in. Virtually no Tunisians were guests in the hotels; this reminded me of the gross caste systems of neoliberal Brazil and South Africa where there is tremendous wealth hoarded by a white few while the black and brown people see their local trash dump as a malodorous Walmart. Furthermore, this tragic scene of political and economic debasement in Tunisia and much of the Third World is America and NATO’s vision for Libya.

The Western world raises its whip-hand to order Libya’s proud people to assume the position of neocolonial slaves to a maniacal neo-Apartheid New World Order. There is fanatical hatred of the Libyan peoples’ heroic decision to be free and to help other nations of Africa break the yoke of white supremacy and predatory capitalism. Libya’s goal to create a New African World Order has infuriated the piratical and parasitic white supremacist laager of nations, and this has made the Libyans the latest target to be enslaved like the African Americans, reduced to the level of subhumans, and to be killed like the Native Americans. The Euro-American war machine subsist on the blood and sinew of innocents and those who love peace and equal distribution of work. They are testing the resolve of the world’s free black and brown people. How we respond to the neocolonial genocide against the Libyan Jamahariya will influence how quickly these Vandals, Angles, Gauls, Teutons, Goths, and Franks plot their evil against Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, Zimbabwe, Pakistan, and any other nation they wish to destroy.

“If Gaddafi and his Jamahariya is madness by giving the Libyan people some of the world’s highest living standards and furnishing hope of freedom at last to Africa and the Diaspora’s 1.6 billion people, I also want to be insane.”

The American and European politicians and men of war are lying against Muamar Gadafi and the Jamahariya, and all claims to be concerned about human rights are fronts for an aggressive program of nation destroying. The reasons are simple. Muamar Gadafi’s vision of a free Africa and a Libyan society where there is freedom from want, universal literacy, universal health care, a guaranteed income, racial and religious tolerance, and liberation from Euro-American central bank-inspired debt slavery. This is the unstated crime of Gadafi, the Jamahiriya, and loyal majority of the Libyan people. The Jamahiriya’s Green Ideology’s audacious dream is for the oppressed to be freed and for the rise of a solitary African superstate able to abolish the rapine theft of the natural resources of the continent. The creation of a unified Africa liberated from the worthless American dollar and Euro threatened to end the long night of African Maafa. This African dream that Western racists want to replace with a nightmare of slavery, genocide, Apartheid, and predatory capitalism. It is easy for the beneficiaries of the 500-year legacy of draculian capitalism, genocide-friendly Christianity, obsessive compulsive color racism, and gun-powder and steel infused barbarity against the people of Africa to consider anyone wishing to end their half-millennia of unmerited riches as insane. If Gaddafi and his Jamahariya is madness by giving the Libyan people some of the world’s highest living standards and furnishing hope of freedom at last to Africa and the Diaspora’s 1.6 billion people, I also want to be insane, and I think all of the sons and daughters of Ham should be afflicted with Drapetotamania and rally to defend this Libya, the Jamahiriya, and its leader Muamar Gaddafi. The fate of our entire African people is being determined by this small theater of war, and if we fail to come together we have signed our collective death certificate. The cause of death: congestive heart failure and a metastasized cowardice, idolatry to white supremacy, and apathy

“The fate of our entire African people is being determined by this small theater of war.”

The lesson of the perfidy of Obama, Sarkozy, Cameron, and the other leaders who have started this war against the righteous people of Libya is that there can be no compromise with the former colonial powers in terms of African self-determination and unity. Libya is the new Plymouth Rock, and we must never let it hit us again. Old attitudes that we can be rugged individuals must be strung up this very hour. When we allow Europeans to influence us to fight amongst ourselves or withdraw our hand of aid from one of our brothers in need, we divided Africans are then conquered and transmongrified into racist mental constructs of people who hate us and denounce us as niggers, colons, golliwogs, savages, cannibals, assimilados, evolues, sand niggers or l’indigens to whom they have the God-given right to rape, rob, enslave, degrade, stereotype, and deny all forms of human rights. The time is now for the people of Africa to drive all plundering invaders from our beloved motherland shores. The days of being black Frenchmen, Portuguese, Semitic migrants, or Anglo Saxons must be forgotten. We must find common hope and determination to realize a dream to be more than slaves who pleasure deviant tourists from the West.

Africa is our home and sanctuary of African people, and we can never again let even one pinch of the holy soil of our land be in the hands of our enemies. We must destroy the barriers the invaders have made between us based on class, gender, language, religion, or region and rediscover the beauty and sacredness of Africa and the lives of her people. We must abandon the ersatz shtick of Western predatory capitalism and all models of behavior and governance that do not serve the specific needs of our development. Let us return to a consciousness where the care for collective, family and society are the paragons of human aspiration. We must always be prepared to look beyond the lies of conglomerated and cabalistic media lies and pornographic deceit arrayed against Muamar Gaddafi and the people of Libya. We must support them in their struggle to hold on to their land, and they cannot fail in their struggle because such a loss, God forbid, signals the mass enslavement and neo-colonial destruction of all the gains made by African people over the last fifty years.

“The days of being black Frenchmen, Portuguese, Semitic migrants, or Anglo Saxons must be forgotten.”

Libya’s battle against CIA assets also known as the Libyan opposition is a crucial event in the lives of all Black and Brown people. There is no real opposition against the Jamahariya. The kleptocratic thugs that lead the opposition are a collection of has-been bureaucrats who have offered their services to the enemies of Africa, because they were corrupt and feared the ending of their access to stealing wealth from the majority of Libya’s people. I repeat, the rebels are serving the United States and NATO, who are threatening not only the freedom of the Libyan people, but desire the enserfment of all Africans. If they can make slaves in Libya, they can make all of us slaves.

The journalistic fecal matter of Al Jazeera and the western media outlets spew the vilest lies told since Joseph Goebbles. The war against the Jamahariya is not connected to the so-called Arab Spring. This is a new scramble for the African Continent. A tottering Anglo-American predatory elite is returning to the source of their unjust enrichment: Africa. The emergence of China as an economic and political power with close relations to Africa frightens the United States. Now, America cynically plots to foment proxy wars to deny Africans the option to trade with the people of Asia for a better deal, and the penalty they plan for Africa is lots of irrational wars that net bumper crops of dead Black people who die for foreign interests. Let us rally to the green flag in defiance. We cannot and will not go back to the slave ship hulls of Western European and American hegemony. We the free African People and all others who love humanity must unite and support Muamar Gadadfi, the Libyan Jamahariya and their struggle to retain their sovereignty and unconditional control of their natural resources and dignity. Libyans are a heroic people who deserve the respect and admiration of the world and not the epithet of Sand Nigger.
