    Zimbabwe: Mugabe Tells All White Farmers they Must Give Up Their Land and 'Go'

    One of our 'progressives' favorite dictators, Robert Mugabe, has declared that all White farmers must give up their land and go:

    BBC News - Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe tells white farmers 'to go'

    One would think he would have learned his lesson since he drove off most of the White farmers years ago. That little incident plunged Zimbabwe into a country that could not feed itself whereas the country had been the 'breadbasket' of Southern Africa for years with productive White farms. Do you think the world community and/or the UN should step in and prevent this ethnic cleansing?

    I'm not sure he's intelligent enough to figure out what went wrong.

    I was in Rhodesia back in the mid/late 1970's and it wasn't a "banana republic" back then.

    Look at what socialism has done to Rhodesia/Zimbabwe and South Africa today, both basket cases.

    I don't know of any progressives who supports Mugabe. I think you'd be pretty hard-pressed to find any, too.

    It's well documented that he's a vicious dictator, who demolished Zimbabwe's economy with ridiculous anti-foreigner and anti-white nonsense, and has repeatedly flouted the very concept of elections. Maybe a few people were snowed by him when he first got into power (in 1980), but by the time he started his "land reforms" in 2000, I don't think there was much doubt that the only real beneficiaries would be Mugabe and his thugs. Leftist and mainstream media has been critical of him for well over 10 years.

    As long as white farmers are in Zimbabwe, he'll make them a scapegoat. When they're gone, he'll just find another scapegoat. The guy is 90, he obviously doesn't care about anything except staying in power.

    Yes, it's about 1% white. It was a British colony until 1965.

    I'd say no, just let them stew in their own bad decisions, but then the UN would want to deal with the resulting problems, which might be worse.

    Decisions, decisions.

    Also, wtf is with your "white farms were better".

    Of course they were, the white people were better educated and had more money to spend, in general - it isn't skin color that truly separates us, it's education and money wealth.
    Education.
