Fjordman has posted yet another essay, this one at The Brussels Journal. Here are some excerpts:
The leader of Afrikan Youth in Norway (yes, we have several state-sponsored organizations for Africans in Norway), the Norwegian-Nigerian (at least that’s the official term, he appears to think more as a Nigerian than as a Norwegian) Sam Chimaobi Ahamba suggests that Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe is a freedom fighter, and that the Western media focus on him stems from Western (meaning white racist) anger at an African freedom fighter. “Yes, people get beat up and women get raped, but this happens in all countries, not just in Zimbabwe. But only Zimbabwe generates this incredible media attention,” says Ahamba.
“I don’t agree with the idea that just because I support Mugabe, I have to defend the fact that he has killed a lot of people.” No, he supports Mr. Mugabe “from a pan-African principle. He is a leader who really tries to liberate his people from European powers. There must be enough freedom of speech in this country for me to have such a viewpoint,” Ahamba states.
According to Sam Chimaobi Ahamba, “Zimbabwe is a country born on the expulsion and disenfranchisement of whites, which could explain all the attention and media coverage” it receives. Its struggle for independence was a “milestone which symbolized that we no longer needed to be afraid of white power and oppression, or be the slaves of a neo-colonialist economy. It was black power — and it was without apology.” He claims that democracy in Africa has often been obstructed by “white nations” and that they “see through the West’s tactics of humiliating African countries’ right to total and absolute independence from the West’s imperialist and capitalist stranglehold” on the African continent. “As soon as the West doesn’t get things the way it wants, the so-called Third World gets to suffer for this.”

I would like to ask Mr. Sam Chimaobi Ahamba the following: Since you feel so “oppressed” by evil white people, why did you move to a country and a continent full of them? Isn’t it emotionally challenging for you to see so many of them on a daily basis? I’m also curious about this organization Afrikan Youth in Norway, which Ahamba leads. We are usually told that Europeans now come in all shapes and colors, and that equating “European” with “white” is redundant, racist and evil. Yet when I look at photos from this “African” youth organization, I don’t see many white South Africans or for that matter Asians from East Africa. They all seem to be black. Does that mean that while “Europeans” come in all colors, “Africans” come in just one? How confusing.
Could I move to Nigeria out of my own free will and set up a European Youth in Nigeria organization sponsored by native taxpayers, in the name of “cultural diversity”? I suspect not. What if I publicly supported brutal attacks and ethnic cleansing of people in Europe who happened to have the same skin color as the majority population in the country I lived in? Could I call this “free speech” and get away with it? Again, I suspect not. Only white people are cowed and self-loathing enough to pay for getting insulted in their own countries.
