Only two days after getting a bollocking from the President of Senegal for lecturing that nation on how they should treat homosexuals, Barack Obama, who does not understand that the colour of his skin does not buy him and leeway in Africa, arrived to be greeted by anti American protests:
"'Hundreds of people have held a demonstration in the South African executive capital Pretoria to protest against Washington’s “oppressive” policies on the eve of a visit by US President Barack Obama to the African country.
On Friday, about 1,000 trade unionists, Muslim activists and South African Communist Party members gathered just few blocks away from the Medi-Clinic Heart Hospital in Pretoria where Nelson Mandela is critically ill. The protesters marched towards the US Embassy, shouting slogans denouncing Obama’s foreign policy as "arrogant and oppressive". They also burnt US flags."
Not sensitive enough to pick up on the "fuck off jug ears" message behind the protests Obama then started trying to make political capital by identifying himself with the dying (some say already dead) Nelson Mandela.
What a creep The Prez Dude is, putting himself next to Nelson Mandela would make him look like an ant standing in the shadow of an elephant.
