“America is back,” Joe Biden declared earlier this month at the G-7 conference, addressing foreign leaders. There was a lot of talk about restoring democratic principles and dignity to “persons of color” and other minorities. Biden said that everyone has the right to be treated with respect and dignity.
Following the catastrophic US withdrawal from Afghanistan, French President Emmanuel Macron was one of the first to be singled out by President Joe Biden. Australia pulled out of a multibillion-dollar defense contract with France and signed new agreements with the United States and the United Kingdom, effectively locking France out. Parents who protested their children’s indoctrination with left-wing propaganda were domestic terrorists. For engaging in a protest, political opponents are being held in solitary confinement.
Today News Africa’s White House reporter, Simon Ateba, covers US-Africa ties. South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique, and Malawi were all subject to a travel restriction enforced by the Biden Administration a few weeks ago. Because 57 nations have reported occurrences of the Omicron variety, this is a big concern for the African countries sanctioned. The prohibition was irrational and unscientific.
In an era of slobbering news media, Simon Ateba was reprimanded for interrupting Psaki and other White House press briefings, but his actions were perceived as an act of defiance. She claimed that no retribution would be meted out to African countries, but this was nonsense. There was more to come. Speaking the truth at a period of widespread deception, according to Orwell, “is a revolutionary act.”
Since appearing on Tucker Carlson’s show two weeks ago, Mr. Ateba has been barred from asking questions at White House press briefings. Some people warned him that going on the program was a poor idea and that he shouldn’t have gone, but he claims that he was penalized for speaking out against the administration’s illogical travel restriction. If they had any morality, Joy Reid, Al Sharpton, and BLM would have made a big issue out of the fact that a non-white individual is remaining silent in the face of the White House’s discriminatory policies. But nothing of the kind occurred. There wasn’t even a Tom Hanks-sponsored espresso machine encouraging Ateba to “keep up the good fight for truth, justice, and the American way.”
By putting a travel restriction on nations with a majority of non-white people, the White House appears to be following the Democratic Party’s track record of institutional racism. Consider the treatment of conservative African-Americans like Larry Elder, Candace Owens, Winsome Sears, and Herman Cain. These actions are a continuation of the Democratic Party’s shady history of racism and tyranny.
