A politically incorrect question
Published Tue, Jun 3 2008 1:48 PM
What happens when you take farmland that is producing crops that are brought to market to feed your nation's people away from the farmers that own it by force, murdering those farmers if they don't comply with your desire to seize their land? Do crops grow without the seed being sown? Do crops thrive without fertilization? Do crops produce food when they are choked with weeds or burned to the ground? When you seize farmland from working farmers and give the land to men and women who know nothing of farming and who refuse to do the work required to nurture the crops what will the land produce for you to bring to market?
When a nation that once produced an abundance of food, a literal cornucopia that helped to feed a hungry continent stops farming, what sort of result do you expect? When a country's population is starving but the military government that is responsible for the collapse of that country's farming economy orders international aid organizations like Care International to suspend their operations in that country because of political paranoia what do you expect the political leaders of that nation to do?
I'm sure you can guess.
Come on... guess.
That's right — blame the racist west.
"The United Kingdom has mobilized her friends and allies in Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand to impose illegal economic sanctions against Zimbabwe." — Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe
According to the Associated Press, Robert Mugabe was "staying at a posh hotel near the top of Rome's Via Veneto, an elegant street lined with chic cafes." when he accused the West of maneuvering to bring about "regime change" in Zimbabwe.
Maybe that's why Father Pfleger thinks that America is the greatest sin against God. After all, we don't believe in Zimbabwean style redistribution of wealth here — unless we're liberal politicians anyway.
