AMIN: Joe Biden is not good for Africa

Biden was clearly elected by the vibrant and enterprising American people whom I love and respect so much. So it is fair to say that let him preside over them, not the rest of us

COMMENT | Hussein Lumumba Amin | With all due respect, it is quite concerning to hear US President-elect Joe Biden boldly roar that “America is back and ready to lead the world again!”.

Biden made the remarks this week as he was explaining the role of the team that he has selected to formulate his administration’s foreign policy.

He is saying this without even feeling the slightest discomfort at any probable arrogance, utter boisterousness and disrespect that it might echo to the over 8 billion other humans in their own countries on this planet, who will be affected by his foreign policy decisions.

While such words sound like coming straight from the centuries of empire and colonialism, psychologist might find the same undiagnosed attitude being behind the disproportionately high number of disturbing incidents of police brutality against black people and people of color in the US. It possibly finds fertile ground in a certain patriarchal or patronizing view regarding ones role in society or in the world vis-a-vis “others”.

I thought democracy meant that we the people choose our leaders and our destiny. But the peoples of the world did not elect Mr. Joe Biden or America to lead them, did they?

THE OBAMA GLOBALISTS ARE BACK IN THE WHITE HOUSE, ALREADY ITCHING TO RULE THE WORLD AGAIN

Mr. Biden was clearly elected by the vibrant and enterprising American people whom I love and respect so much. So it is fair to say that let him preside over them, not the rest of us.

Outgoing US President Trump speaks at a luncheon with African leaders including Uganda’s Museveni and Nigeria’s Buhari. He at least left Africa to handle its own affairs

Clearly the globalists over-reach is back. And they are confirming the worst fears of many in all corners of the world by immediately and unashamedly asserting claim to the planet.

If I may speak on behalf of those around the world who did not have their say in the US election, for the last four years we were told not to interfere. Therefore we definitely did not get to choose Biden or anyone from his country to lead us, or make decisions on our behalf.

So we kindly ask him (or any other aspiring globalist) to please respect not only their clearly stipulated constitutional mandate toward their people and their country, but also have the utmost consideration and respect for the will of our own peoples and their sovereignty over their own countries.

THE OBAMA GLOBALISTS ARE BACK IN THE WHITE HOUSE, ALREADY ITCHING TO RULE THE WORLD AGAIN.

With all due respect, it is…

In this day and age, where already a fifth of the new millennium passed, one should not feel comfortable thinking it is ok to tell almost eight billion sovereign human beings around the planet that he or she is now ready to lead them with or without their consent.

What I know about peoples in Africa, the Middle East, South America, Asia and even millions across Europe, is that while we all appreciate advice, assistance, partnerships and pragmatic cooperation, we need every leader regardless of their nations financial or military might, to be humble enough to focus themselves to their constitutional mandate.

They should focus within their jurisdiction, and leave the rest of us alone to our own self-chosen destinies and human dignity unless called upon respectfully, diplomatically and in good faith to work together on matters like climate change, Corvid-19, trade, corruption, human rights, women’s emancipation, terrorism, education, refugees, peace-keeping, conflict resolution, and/or economic development for example.

God bless us all!

  1. Yes, May be he is not good for Africa but again Africans tend to run the Europeans and Americans once political contests become life and death. It is not the otherway round, if you beat ur wife daily, shouldn’t a concerned neighbour come to the rescue? He/should indeed. The difference is the u don’t call the neighbour but I see almost all upcoming/established leaders run for help yo these countries.

  2. Yes, May be he is not good for Africa but again Africans tend to run to the Europeans and Americans once political contests become life and death/ even for financial support. It is not the otherway round, if you beat ur wife daily, shouldn’t a concerned neighbour come to the rescue? He/should indeed. The difference is that u don’t call the neighbour but I see almost all upcoming/established leaders run for help to these countries. We should stop calling them for help, then, shall we say they are not good.

  3. This comment is well written but it is full of DISMAY and is lacking JUSTICE. The writer focuses more on the undertone of the statement, “America is back and is ready to lead the world again”. He has looked more at the statement in negative perspective not asking himself the positive contributions of the US to the world Politics which the statement would imply.
    Well, other countries, especially the Africans, can lead themselves but VERY AUTOCRATICALLY so the American would-be “leadership” can guide those AUTOCRATIC LEADER-KINGS in such countries to embrace the principles of democracy and the Human Rights. He should also know that the US is the well recognised world super power, but it cannot be so without a leader and that leader must the precedence to compare the forthcoming policy with the outgoing one and as such this statement “America……” is befitting the time.

  4. Amin,
    Biden not good for Africa! Was Trump good or he let tyrants go wild. Atleast Obama tried to question dictators who have overstayed their term limits. Biden atleast will try to use soft power to help the those who strive to fight for freedom. Second., an American President cannot solve African problems when educated middle class that benefits from the oppressor can turn a blind eye to avoid wrecking their corruption boat. These fear change.
