32. I don't need an education on Africa
The rambling of post-colonial and post-modernist academics is of roughly the same quality one expects from creationists. Africa was not liberated - Africa was abandoned. The bottom line is the British wanted out of Africa so badly that they were ready to turn over the keys to just about any english speaking local who would look respectable in a photo with the queen, every effort was made to make these clowns look legitimate, such as the knighthood for Mugabe.

The west wants Mugabe gone because he destroyed Zimbabwe in decade flat, the paranoid fantasy that the British seek to re-colonize Rhodesia is insanity. Tsvangirai is the legitimate ruler of Zimbabwe and not merely a prefered Western stooge. Did Zimbabwe not threaten to destabilize the entire southern half of Africa the west wouldn't much care what was going on there.
