#ThisFlag: Surprise Social Media Phenomenon Or US-Manufactured Uprising?

The largest protest movement to hit Zimbabwe in a decade was kicked off by a relatively unknown Baptist preacher who made a video decrying corruption. Is it an accident that his video went viral, or does the popularity of his message reflect U.S. involvement?

    WASHINGTONIn reporting on Zimbabwe, the mainstream media gives the impression that recent protests rallying around the Twitter hashtag “ThisFlag” are an epic struggle against a corrupt dictatorship.

    Robert Mugabe, the 92-year-old president of Zimbabwe and leader of the Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF), is presented as a “dictator” and “authoritarian,” while his opponents are held up as advocates of democracy and human rights.

    In its brief snapshot of Zimbabwe’s politics, the Western press portrays Evan Mawarire, a Baptist preacher, as a social media phenomenon and “Zimbabwe’s most unlikely dissident.” Mainstream media accounts of his movement that spawned the biggest protests against Mugabe in a decade, arrest for inciting public violence, and most recently, his flight to the United States, portray him as kind of Martin Luther King Jr. figure, someone who is leading peaceful protest against corruption.


    Advertisment

    In the mainstream media’s narrative, Mawarire is defined not by his own motivations, actions, or goals, but simply by his adversary.

    That adversary is Mugabe, who also happens to be an adversary of Washington.

     

    US fingerprints all over recent protests

    In addition to a history of U.S. support for the country’s major opposition party, the Movement for Democratic Change, a slew of protests which have swept Zimbabwe in recent months have certain attributes that suggest backing and direction from the U.S.

    In May, opposition parties in Zimbabwe began protesting against China, a country whose international machinations are often at odds with U.S. hegemonic interests. Willias Madzimure, the secretary of international relations for the oppositionist People’s Democratic Party, wrote an editorial calling for all Chinese people to be deported. Noting high unemployment, rampant poverty and drug shortages, Madzimure asserted:

    “[T]he Chinese have literary [sic] invaded the national economy and are milking all the profits back to Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong. In return for having been given unfettered access to the national economy by the desperate Mugabe regime, the Chinese have offered political protection at international level.”

    On June 24, protesters gathered at the Rainbow Towers Hotel in the capital Harare, demanding that Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko and his family to vacate their suite and move into a government-provided mansion — accommodations which are both funded through taxpayer money. When the group refused to leave, riot police arrived to forcibly remove them.

    These events came just ahead of the emergence of Mawarire’s #ThisFlag movement. Much like the Euromaidan protests which toppled the Russian-aligned government in Ukraine in early 2014, protesters’ initial demands were vague, just references to “corruption” and demands for “accountability.” Their slogan was simply “this flag,” short for “this flag deserves better.”

    However, the BBC reported five specific demands on July 16: “Pay civil servants on time; Reduce roadblocks and stop officers harassing people for cash; President Robert Mugabe should fire and prosecute corrupt officials; Plans to introduce bond notes to ease a cash shortage should be abandoned; Remove a recent ban on imported goods.”

    And although some Western media have called the protests “peaceful,” they’ve been marked by violent clashes between protesters and police, which have resulted in widespread arrests.

     

    #ThisFlag: Accidental or manufactured social media phenomenon?

    Another indication of foreign sponsorship and involvement in the protests is the prominence of #ThisFlag on social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook, U.S.-based corporations which routinely coordinate with government agencies around the world.

    The campaign was announced by Mawarire on April 19 in a video posted on Facebook (a platform that’s been proven to have a team of “news curators” who make politically-biased decisions about what news stories and political messages to highlight) and YouTube. Draped in the country’s flag, Mawarire described himself as “a citizen, not a politician” and gave a vague speech describing frustrations with the economy.

    Mawarire’s Facebook post which is credited with being the impetus for #ThisFlag:


    His personal Facebook page reached the maximum 5,000-friends limit within days of his first video going viral, more than 45,000 users have “Liked” the “ThisFlag” Facebook page, and his Twitter account has over 40,000 followers. He’s continued to regularly post videos and other content related to the movement to his Facebook page, which has nearly 65,000 followers.

    Yet some in Zimbabwe, like education minister Jonathan Moyo, were quick to dismiss the movement. He told Bloomberg News in May: “It’s a lie that it’s an internet sensation.”

    Before a single protest had even taken place, social media was abuzz with videos, articles, and photographs decrying Zimbabwe’s economic situation and urging people to wear the country’s flag and prepare for upcoming protests. Could so much publicity and controversy erupt in response to a single video, made by a seemingly random, previously unknown pastor? Maybe, but it’s more likely that powerful forces both within and outside of Zimbabwe were looking to advance Mawarire’s message and utilize the unfolding unrest to promote their own interests.

    ZANU-PF, the political party that emerged from the armed uprising that toppled the apartheid regime of Rhodesia, has never been a favorite of Western leaders. The #ThisFlag uprising, it should be noted, emerged after Zimbabwe announced that it would adopt the Chinese yuan as legal tender and nationalize the country’s diamond mines.

    After he was released from his brief detainment, Mawarire, who started the #ThisFlag movement with a Facebook video, fled to neighboring South Africa, seeking “safety,” before arriving in the U.S. earlier this month. He has vowed to lead protests against government corruption outside an annual meeting of heads of state at the United Nations next month.

    According to reports, #ThisFlag supporters are “divided” or “fuming” over the pastor’s decision to leave for the U.S. It remains to be seen what will happen with the movement going forward, but Mawarire’s destination provides perhaps yet another indication that the uprising was most likely intended to advance Washington’s ultimate goals for Zimbabwe.

    President Mugabe indicated as much on July 19. Speaking to thousands of people gathered at a funeral for the country’s first black cabinet secretary, the BBC quoted Mugabe as saying that “if people like Mr Mawarire did not like living in Zimbabwe, they should go to ‘the countries of those who are sponsoring them.’

        For more than 3000 years, from the money changers Jesus is said to have driven from the temple steps to Rothschild in the UK to the lowest loan shark in NY, to the Internet propaganda shill, the IDF thug, the Mossad scum and their rabbis preaching the delusion of a “chosen” master-race, this criminal cartel posing as religion and ethnicity has most closely resembled a malignant cancer metastasizing through our world, corrupting and destroying everything it touches.

          JEWISH leaders. Note that part. Muslim, Christian and Atheist leaders have said stupid things in times past, BUT TAPATIO ONLY USES IT TO JUSTIFY THE HOLOCAUST AND THE MURDER OF JEWS.

      • James Wherry

        This is probably the most fair and balanced assessment of Honduras’ Human Rights assessment I can find, anywhere. Honduras is trying, but still lags.

        “Serious issues involving human rights in Honduras through the end of 2013 include unlawful and arbitrary killings by police and others, corruption and institutional weakness of the justice system, and harsh and at times life-threatening prison conditions.[1]

        “Other human rights problems include violence against detainees; lengthy pretrial detentions and failure to provide due process of law; harassment of journalists; corruption in government; violence against and harassment of women; child prostitution and abuse; trafficking in persons; encroachment on indigenous lands and discrimination against indigenous and Afro-descendent communities; violence against and harassment of LGBT persons; ineffective enforcement of labor laws; and child labor. Organized criminal elements were significant perpetrators of violent crimes in the country and committed acts of murder, extortion, kidnapping, torture, human trafficking, and intimidation of journalists and human rights defenders.[1]

        “The government has taken steps to prosecute and punish officials who commit abuses. However, corruption and impunity remain serious problems that impede the effectiveness of the National Police.[1]”

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_rights_in_Honduras

        • James Wherry

          To add to the assessment, however, some of the “progress” may have occurred before the coup, as Amnesty International points out.

          “Concerns about human rights in Honduras have intensified since the democratically elected President José Manuel Zelaya Rosales was forced from power on June 28 and expelled from the country by a military-backed group of politicians led by Roberto Micheletti, former leader of the National Congress. There has been widespread unrest in the country since the coup d’etat with frequent clashes between the police, military and civilian protestors. At least two people have died after being shot during protests.”

            It appears that MintPressNews’ favorite NAMBLA member, TAPATIO is at it, again. Posting penis’es to this website? Well, yeah: he’s pretty much been pee-ing on it for 8 months.

          • James Wherry

            It still puzzles me why this website continues to welcome TAPATIO, a person who has said that Jill Stein and her family are a member of a “3000 year old cartel” and a religion (Judaism) that is “toxic.” TAPATIO has called Judaism “a cancer” and “a disease.” He has praised HITLER for the HOLOCAUST. In the posts, below, TAPATIO JUSTIFIES the HOLOCAUST and PRAISES THE NAZ!s BY NAME. TAPATIO calls it “an act of self-defense by non-Jews in “78. 1936-45: Naz! controlled areas.” TAPATIO says it was done because of the crimes of all of those Jews. So what WERE the crimes of the 3 million Jews of Poland? Resisting the NAZ!s of TAPATIO’s party?

        • TecumsehUnfaced

          This is so stupid, it’s unbelievable. HRW is an arm of NWO ruling elite intent on looting Honduras.

          • James Wherry

            No, HRW is an “impartial” NGO that is not interested in promoting human rights abuses By contrast, your party came to power by doing so.

            • TecumsehUnfaced

              How stupid! It has a revolving door with the U.S. State Department.

              • James Wherry

                *Sigh*

                HRW and AI both play the “name and shame game. They walk in the door, repeat uninvestigated allegations to us about U.S. abuses, and then challenge us to “disprove” what they say. In short, WE are “innocent until proven guilty.

                THAT is about the only “revolving door” that exists with those people. Regardless, they supply proof and eyewitness testimony, from time to time, that is good evidence of their claims.

                • TecumsehUnfaced

                  How did you like Tapatio’s analysis of you? Spot on, eh?

                    Well, it proves that he and you are perverts that like to pee on this website and engage in off-topic discussions in your War to Exterminate the Jews, I’ll concede that.

                    • TecumsehUnfaced

                      By such an answer, you’ve conceded it accurate.

                    You posted a fringe news group with a political agenda. According to tapatio, their opinions “have no value.” If you don’t like HRW or AI, stop quoting them against Israel.

                    But even “The Guardian” – whose boots tapatio licks – site both HRW and AI as authoritative. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/feb/01/saudi-inquiry-war-claims-yemen-inadequate-say-rights-groups

                    If you have a problem with them, write a letter to the editor.

                    • TecumsehUnfaced

                      Why? When the bootlickers criticize the evil of ZioNazi behavior, you can be sure that it’s darn evil.

                      You are deluded, “The Guardian” is a long time ZioNazi bootlicker.

                      • James Wherry

                        Okay, prepare to provide your proof of your allegation against the Guardian and do so for the MintPressNews readers, right away.

                        In other words, you have no proof. This is a great post, by the way: it proves you just “make stuff up.” I’ll save it.

                        Tapatio constantly praised the Guardian as independent and accurate and you know HE is a NAZ! and hates Israel I’ve read their articles and they only criticize Israel and defend the Palestinians. Again, you just “make up stuff” claiming tha someone is not “trustworthy,” if you don’t like what they write or say.

                        • TecumsehUnfaced

                          Okay!

          THE JEWS’ SELF-PROFESSED “CHRISTIAN” ZIONIST TROLL, JAMES WHERRY, BEGAN TROLLING ME EARLY THIS YEAR. SINCE HE WAS STUPID ENOUGH TO US HIS REAL NAME AND A TRACEABLE PHOTO, I DID A BIT OF CHECKING AND, FINALLY, RAN A BACKGROUND CHECK (easy if your wife’s a retired attorney).

          JAMES WHERRY IS A “HASBARA” TROLL FOR THE JUDEO-NAZ! STATE AND A S-XUAL PREDATOR OF THE “GAY” CHICKENHAWK VARIETY – HE LIKES YOUNG BOYS. NOT UNUSUAL – HIS ADOPTED CULT-URE PROMOTES HOMOSEXUALITY AND PEDOPHELIA AS LIFE-STYLE CHOICES.

          James Wherry pretends to be gay. He isn’t. He’s a s-x predator that likes BOYS, as evidenced by the barely legal boy he bought from the Philippine slums and “married” in Columbus, GA.
          Fortunately, Wherry is stupid enough to use his real name and had used a traceable photo and proveded the opportunity to show what sort of gutter scum actually represents the oligarchy and the Zionist disease.
          JAMES WHERRY is a “hasbara” troll for the outlaw Jewish state and a GAY CHICKEN-HAWK (men who use boys for s-x) who chooses the youngest possible “legal” boy from a culture where the boy is so desperate to escape the poverty that he will accept ANY humiliation.

          THIS is the sort of filth that makes up Zionism and its ranks of Gentile sycophants.

          Even though Wherry was an officer in the US military, his first loyalty is obviously to Zionism. Zionists follow the Jewish “Chosen” Master-Race delusion promoted in Judaism’s Talmud. Wherry has also bragged about helping train the state terrorists of Uganda.

          Wherry resides, with his boy paramour, Mario, at ……….
          6300 MILGEN RD APT 1403
          COLUMBUS, GA 31907

          “I’m very happy about it,” James Wherry said. “Marriage is the bedrock of our society. I hope that same-sex couples can rejuvenate and revitalize marriage and give it the respect it is due.”

          I don’t really think that Wherry is qualified to “REVITALIZE MARRIAGE AND GIVE IT THE RESPECT IT DESERVES” with his perverted man-boy love predatory relationship

          James Wherry said he and Mario Jay Wherry met through gaymatchmaker.com. James Wherry proposed and flew to the Philippines to hold an engagement party with Mario Jay Wherry and his family. Mario Jay Wherry arrived in the United States at the end of May.

          Wherry and his little paramour at their “wedding”. Being gay is one thing. Sexual use of someone young enough to be his child, and who would do ANYTHING to escape the disgusting poverty and violence of a culture like that in the Philippines, makes Wherry a s-xual predator.

        After the childish efforts of TWO NAZ!s, below, to turn this into a discussion of Israel and Palestine, it’s nice to get back to discussing Honduras. Human Rights Watch normally engages in the “name and shame game” that NGOs play, but here’s some great news by them of the arrest of human rights abusers by the Honduran government. http://www.hondurasnews.com/human-rights-watch/

      • James Wherry

        According to Human Rights Watch, the biggest problem with Honduras is INCOMPETENCE and corruption (i.e. turning a blind eye to crime. Hopefully Israel can engage with Honduras, arm it, and end those problems.

        “Rampant crime and impunity for human rights abuses remain the norm in Honduras. Despite a downward trend in recent years, the murder rate is among the highest in the world. Efforts to reform the institutions responsible for providing public security have made little progress. Marred by corruption and abuse, the judiciary and police remain largely ineffective. Journalists, peasant activists, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals are among those most vulnerable to violence. Government efforts to investigate and prosecute violence against members of these groups made little progress.” https://www.hrw.org/americas/honduras

Engagement is better than disengagement. Hopefully, with Israel’s help, their government can improve.

          JAMES WHERRY is a “hasbara” troll for the outlaw Jewish state and a GAY CHICKEN-HAWK (men who use boys for s-x) who chooses the youngest possible “legal” boy from a culture where the boy is so desperate to escape the poverty that he will accept ANY humiliation.

          THIS is the sort of filth that makes up Zionism and its ranks of Gentile sycophants.

          Even though Wherry was an officer in the US military, his first loyalty is obviously to Zionism. Zionists follow the Jewish “Chosen” Master-Race delusion promoted in Judaism’s Talmud. Wherry has also bragged about helping train the state terrorists of Uganda.

          Wherry resides, with his boy paramour, Mario, at 6300 MILGEN RD APT 1403 COLUMBUS, GA 31907, (15 minutes from the gate of School of the Americas – the world’s largest death squad and terrorist training facility) should anyone wish to drop by to say, “HI”.

          http://www.ledger-enquirer.com/news/local/article29462263.html

          HILARIOUS………..
          “I’m very happy about it,” James Wherry said. “Marriage is the bedrock of our society. I hope that same-sex couples can rejuvenate and revitalize marriage and give it the respect it is due.”

          I don’t really think that Wherry is qualified to “REVITALIZE MARRIAGE AND GIVE IT THE RESPECT IT DESERVES” with his perverted man-boy love predatory relationship

          James Wherry said he and Mario Jay Wherry met through gaymatchmaker.com. James Wherry proposed and flew to the Philippines to hold an engagement party with Mario Jay Wherry and his family. Mario Jay Wherry arrived in the United States at the end of May.

          Wherry and his little paramour at their “wedding”. Being gay is one thing. Sexual use of someone young enough to be his child, and who would do ANYTHING to escape the disgusting poverty and violence of a culture like that in the Philippines, makes Wherry a s-xual predator.

          • James Wherry

            As tapatio knows, my husband is in his mid-20s’ Tapatio’s own pedophilia likely comes from unhealthy denial of his own homosexuality. Gay adults who are “out” form bonds with other adults.

            But then, Tapatio is expressing his oft-stated claim that gays who “act up” or make “public displays” like kissing or holding hands in public should be murdered.

            • tapatio

              What I “KNOW” is that Wherry CLAIMS that the boy he purchased in the Philippines is in his 20s.

              I also KNOW that this boy looks to be the same age as my 14 year old grandson.

              • James Wherry

                Tapatio, as a latent gay and a public Homophobe, you make a whole bunch of assumptions, none of which support your allegation of pedophilia and all of which support my claim that you are a Pedophile and ashamed closet homosexual.

                It’s none of your business what my husband “looks like.” It’s simply your own s-xual obsession with him, manifesting itself.

                I did some digging on the “pedophiles” you admire, nowever.

                Arafat: Born 24 August 1929. His wife, Suha Arafat? Born: 17 July 1963 34 year old difference, far more than me and my husband. So he’s a Pedophile, eh?

                And the founder of Hamas, Ahmed Yassin and his wife, Halima Yassin, a relative? Care to guess?

                Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (/mænˈdɛlə/;[1] 18 July 1918. His second wife, Winnie? Born in 1936, 18 years later. His last wife, Graça Machel DBE was born in 17 October 1945, 26 years after Nelson’s birth. Was Nelson Mandela a pedophile?

                • James Wherry

                  That’s a very easy question to answer: on the one hand you Naz!s proclaimed yourselves to be a superior ethnic group or race.

                  The Bible however does not claim that the Jews were a superior race, but that God chose Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and he gave them promises That were passed down to their descendants calling and God always keeps his promises!

                  It should be painfully obvious to you that all of the prophets of God came from the Jews. Even the Islamic prophet Mohammed admits that. The Messiah who saves the world, Jesus Christ, also came from the Jews. This is evidence for those of us who are Christians that God chose the Jewish people.

                  But bear in mind that God chose them to be an example and sometimes they have chosen to be a good example and sometimes they have chosen to be a very bad example. All of the modern rabbis for your knowledge that at times past the Jews nearly all fell away from God. But God has always called His chosen people back to himself. He is there God and God will have His people.

                  Chew on this however: the Jewish people did not fall away by embracing Judaism, but by rejecting Judaism. You claim the Judaism is toxic, but God claims it’s his way and his law.

                  Show God disrespect at your own peril.

                  But you can’t be talking about the Israelis! They never committed genocide. Today, 1.9 million Jews live in pre-1967 Israel and another 4 million live in the West Bank and Gaza, which the Palestinians claim is Palestine. They are HOME – not sent to any gas chambers.

                  No, the post above shows what the Palestinian Arabs have done for the past 100 years – AND their future plans. Oh, and Abbas is no “moderate:” he has the same GENOCIDE goal.

                    Over 750,000 people (~80%) driven off their ancestral lands

                    Over 600 Arab villages and towns BULLDOZED

                    By international law, that is genocide.

You also ignore the 900,000 Jews who were forced out of their home and off their lands by the same Arabs AND Palestinians with nothing but the clothes on their backs. There has been a population exchange, nothing more. But the Palestinians NEVER had ANY intention of creating their own nation.

                          According to Yitschak Ben Gad, Mahmoud Abbas, then member of PLO Executive Committee, wrote an article “Madha `Alamna wa-Madha Yajib An Na`mal” [What We Have Learned and What We Should Do] and published it in “Falastineth-Thawra” [Revolutionary Palestine], the official journal of the PLO, Beirut, in March 26, 1976:

                          “The Arab armies entered Palestine to protect the Palestinians from the Zionist tyranny but, instead, they abandoned them, forced them to emigrate and to leave their homeland, and threw them into prisons similar to the ghettos in which the Jews used to live in Eastern Europe, as if we were condemned to change places with them: they moved out of their ghettos and we occupied similar ones. The Arab States succeeded in scattering the Palestinian people and in destroying their unity.”[20][unreliable source?][21]

                          Again, remember, the savage ZioNazi terror had already driven over 200,000 thousand people from their homes, before the ZioNazi thugs declared their evil thugdom hilariously called, “Israel” and the Arab soldiers came to try to protect the people from the ZioNazi barbarians.

                          On Jewish terrorism – British Secretary of State for the Colonies

                          On September 10, 1945, the British Secretary of State for the Colonies submitted a memorandum to the Prime Minister in which he stated:

                          The young Jewish extremists, the product of a vicious education system, know neither toleration nor compromise; they regard themselves as morally justified in violence directed against any individual or institution that impedes the complete fulfillment of their demands. In a similar spirit their ancestors in the second century B.C. laid waste Palestine until a ravaged countryside and ruined cities marked the zenith of Hasmonaean power. The prototypes of the Stern Group and National Military Organization are the Zealots and Assassins according to whose creed even Jews married to Gentiles were worthy of death in Roman times. These Zealots of today, from Poland, Russia and the Balkans have yet to learn toleration and recognition of the rights of others. As the Foreign Secretary said recently of the Balkans, these people do not understand the meaning of the word democracy. The Jewish Agency may deplore terrorism; but every immoderate speech … the flagrant disregard on the one hand for the authority of Government in maintaining law and order and on the other for the Arab case, the chauvinism and intolerance of their educational system, all contribute to an atmosphere in which the fanatic and the terrorist flourish. The Jewish leaders appear to be deliberately pushing extremism to a point when an explosion can no longer be avoided and do not scruple to use the plight of the Jews in Europe as a main political excuse. There are many Jews who deplore this state of affairs, but the rigidity of the discipline imposed by the political machine effectively discourages criticism except where it has no practical effect on Zionist policy. The Jews, like so much in Europe, need education in toleration and democracy.(6)

                        • James Wherry

                          Liar.

                          1. The Ottoman Empire was a Muslim Sultanate that ruled the land for more than 400 years until 1919. They would have killed any non-Muslim who acted against Muslims.

                          2. European Jews moved in and out of the land, all the time, during the entire period of 400 years. “Hungarian Jews of the Karlin Hasidic court settled in another part of the city in 1866.[137] According to Nadav Shragai Arab-Jewish relations were good, and Alter Rivlin, who spoke Arabic and Syrian-Aramaic, was appointed Jewish representative to the city council.[137].” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hebron. This date refutes your entire fictional narrative.

                          3. If there was an “invasion,” there should have been pivotal battles, General officers, etc. Which cities fell to the Jews in 1882? How about 1883? In short, you make up lies, deny facts, and prevaricate.

                          After the war, a few Arab leaders tried to present the Palestinian exodus as a victory by claiming to have planned it. Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri as-Said was later quoted as saying: “We will smash the country with our guns and obliterate every place the Jews shelter in. The Arabs should conduct their wives and children to safe areas until the fighting has died down.”[17]

                          Jamal Husseini, Palestinian representative to the United Nations, wrote to the Syrian UN representative, at the end of August 1948,“”The withdrawals were carried out pursuant to an order emanating from Amman. The withdrawal from Nazareth was ordered by Amman; the withdrawal from Safad was ordered by Amman; the withdrawal orders from Lydda and Rale are well known to you. During none of these withdrawals did fighting take place. The regular armies did not enable the inhabitants of the country to defend themselves, but merely facilitated their escape from Palestine.

                          All the orders emanated from one place…[18][19]

                          The Arab leaders confirmed the orders.

                          You even emphasize your goof-up. The order admitted to was for the withdrawal of the troops from the heavily armed, long prepared assault of the evil ZioNazi genocidal country stealers.

                          You can present no order from the Arab command for the Palestinians to leave. You are just another ZioNazi liar. The murderous ZioNazi thugs themselves drove the Palestinian people off their ancestral lands and bulldozed their villages.

                          You’ve emphasized your manipulation of your comments to hide the fact that you cannot produce such an order, and that it was all fabricated by the murderous ZioNazi thugs.

                          Note that even before the ZioNazi stealing of Palestine was declared and the Arab troops arrived to try to rescue the people from the ZioNazi terror, the ZioNazi terror had already driven over 200,000 people off their land.

                          So from every angle, you mendacious story to cover the ZioNazi genocide on the Palestinians disintegrates.

                          This thread is about Honduras. I’m taking steps to rub your nose into the fact that you only think of Israelis and Palestinians and have no care for anyone else – or even the Palestinians.

                          Remember, the savage ZioNazi terror had already driven over 200,000 thousand people from their home, before the ZioNazi thugs declared their evil thugdom hilariously called, “Israel”. So by that, your presentation of the ZioNazi that the Arabs did it very doubtful.

                          Statements by Arab leaders and organizations[edit]

                          In the post that follow are quotes, showing that the Arab leaders ADMIT that such instructions were ISSUED and FOLLOWED. I’ll believe their confessions before your lies, Tecumseh. There are footnotes you can follow, and oh: If I don’t put quotation marks everywhere, it’s not “plagerism,” if you’re stupid to look up the citations. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Causes_of_the_1948_Palestinian_exodus

                          Khalid al-`Azm who was prime minister of Syria from 17 December 1948 to 30 March 1949, listed in his memoirs a number of reasons for the Arab defeat in an attack on the Arab leaders including his own predecessor Jamil Mardam Bey:

                          “Fifth: the Arab governments’ invitation to the people of Palestine to flee from it and seek refuge in adjacent Arab countries, after terror had spread among their ranks in the wake of the Deir Yassin event. This mass flight has benefited the Jews and the situation stabilized in their favor without effort…. Since 1948 we have been demanding the return of the refugees to their homeland, while it is we who constrained them to leave it. Between the invitation extended to the refugees and the request to the United Nations to decide upon their return, there elapsed only a few months.[16]”

                        • TecumsehUnfaced

                          Still no copy of the fictional order from the Arab Command for the people to leave, only hearsay to cover the ZioNazi lie Wherry stupidly peddles. Funny how he blunders into admitting the vastly evil savagery of the murderous ZioNazi thugs.

                        • James Wherry

                          The Arab leaders confirmed the orders, as you know

                        • TecumsehUnfaced

                          Nope! You even goof up your lie by claiming the order was to the Arab troops, not the Palestinians.

                          Again, you cannot produce the order fabricated by your beloved evil ZioNazi thugs to cover up the vast crimes by which their thugdom was made.

                          Over 750,000 people (~80%) driven off their ancestral lands

                          Over 600 Arab villages and towns BULLDOZED

                        • James Wherry

                          Under no circumstances did I say the order was “to Arab Troops.” Why would troops from Egypt have to evacuate their “families in Israel?” That’s just a dumb way to twist my words.

                          And I see, you are repeating your lies. Must be following your master.

                          None, I wasn’t expecting you to stoop so low. But I should have known.

                          Note, that you don’t have any proof of your silly contention of an order to the Arabs forcing the Palestinians out.

                        • James Wherry

                          I have already provided the proof, that you pretend to ignore it. You seem to labor under the delusion that I said that the Arab leaders sent certified letters to the Palestinians warning them to leave. That’s pretty stupid of you. They were radio broadcasts overheard by the CIA and the BBC that told The Palestinian Arabs to get out. Those broadcast are not in dispute. If you have any evidence that they are in dispute, you should share it for the first time ever, instead of being so lazy and ignorant.

                        • TecumsehUnfaced

                          You have provided no proof, no copy of the fake order.

                          Again, remember, the savage ZioNazi terror had already driven over 200,000 thousand people from their homes, before the ZioNazi thugs declared their evil thugdom hilariously called, “Israel” and the Arab soldiers came to try to protect the people from the ZioNazi barbarians. So by that, your presentation of the ZioNazi that the Arabs did it is nonsense.

                          Why would the people of Palestine flee without the murderous terror of the evil ZioNazi thugs?

                          You are asking us to believe nonsense that you hilariously call truth.

                        • James Wherry

                          Those orders are not under dispute the investigations and inquiries and the admissions of Arab leaders show that those orders were given.

                        • TecumsehUnfaced

                          Nope, all they show is a collection of lies by the murderous ZioNazi thugs. You cannot give a reference to the mythical “order”. It doesn’t exist.

                          Now who’s telling the truth? Well, here are the screenshots of TAPATIO praising the NAZ!s for the HOLOCAUST in “78. 1936-45: Naz! controlled areas..” The post is still up, and TAPATIO has since “doubled down” on his statement, PRAISING and JUSTIFYING the Jews for what he calls “an act of self-preservation by non-Jews.” http://www.mintpressnews.com/israel-honduras-enter-new-blood-soaked-military-alliance-support-state-sponsored-terrorism/219887/ In light of the screenshots below, it’s clear that TAPATIO justifies and praises HITLER

      • Pingback: Mugabe: The Dictator?()

          Do not be lied to! This is propaganda. Mugabe is killing people as we speak. People are being beaten and tortured! I am from Zimbabwe and we want change we want Mugabe to go and this is the first man in over 10years to stand up and say enough is enough. The Zimbabwean government has failed. Go online right now and see the protests that were happening. Zimbabwe has an unemployment rate of 90%! We wish Obama could send his army and help free us. We are up against a dictator who has been in power for 36years

          • James Wherry

            Amen! I am sorry for you, for your family, and for your original Homeland. I would never think of invading Zimbabwe, but I would happily support the Zimbabweans who long for peace and freedom! At his age, I hope that he will soon die, however I fear he will be replaced by another dictator from his party and tribe.

            • Noah Banda

              That is the worry that if he dies, another zanu pf person will take over and we will still be in the same boat. Its a sad situation and we are doing everything we can to reach out to the international community. This government said 15 billion dollars went missing under their rule and it scares everyone because they think that money went to train a secret army in china so that should people put up a resistance, the government will just send that army to come and descend on the citizens. It almost seems hopeless

              • James Wherry

                It seems the self-perpetuating way of dictatorships. There is also the unfortunate concern that opposition party members would seek revenge and blood would still flow the opposite way, or that they would produce a corrupt government under the old saw that “It’s Our Turn to Eat.”

                You could do an invaluable service on this or any other thread on MintPressNews by seeking to educate the naïve supporters of Mugabe about the horrors experienced under him. For many, it is “easier” to hide under a rock and pretend that this is all just “a western media manufactured myth.” Below, there is even one person who has not heard the word “politicide,” before.

Those are the ones who committed the GENOCIDE by FORCE MARCHING 100% of ALL JEWS in the West Bank and Gaza out of those lands in 1948. That included those living there for hundreds of years – the last time that THE JEWS HELPED THE MUSLIMS TAKE THE LAND BACK FROM THE CRUSADERS.

                  THIS is the sort of filth that makes up Zionism and its ranks of Gentile sycophants.

                  Even though Wherry was an officer in the US military, his first loyalty is obviously to Zionism. Zionists follow the Jewish “Chosen” Master-Race delusion promoted in Judaism’s Talmud. Wherry has also bragged about helping train the state terrorists of Uganda.

                  Wherry resides, with his boy paramour, Mario, at 6300 MILGEN RD APT 1403 COLUMBUS, GA 31907, (15 minutes from the gate of School of the Americas – the world’s largest death squad and terrorist training facility) should anyone wish to drop by to say, “HI”.

                  “I’m very happy about it,” James Wherry said. “Marriage is the bedrock of our society. I hope that same-sex couples can rejuvenate and revitalize marriage and give it the respect it is due.”

                  I don’t really think that Wherry is qualified to “REVITALIZE MARRIAGE AND GIVE IT THE RESPECT IT DESERVES” with his perverted man-boy love predatory relationship

                  James Wherry said he and Mario Jay Wherry met through gaymatchmaker.com. James Wherry proposed and flew to the Philippines to hold an engagement party with Mario Jay Wherry and his family. Mario Jay Wherry arrived in the United States at the end of May.

                  Wherry and his little paramour at their “wedding”. Being gay is one thing. Sexual use of someone young enough to be his child, and who would do ANYTHING to escape the disgusting poverty and violence of a culture like that in the Philippines, makes Wherry a s-xual predator.

            I do not agree with your poor assessment of the United States, but I am a military isolationist. You seem to be arguing, that America’s past moral failures prevent it from correcting it self and working for a just and moral future for all. I cannot agree with that.

            Instead, I prefer to look at the US Constitution which requires Congress to authorize military action absent a direct threat against the United States which Mugabe is not. Then I look at the UN charter which only authorizes military intervention first as an inherent right if self defense, and second if authorized by the UN Security Council, neither of which applies, here’s.

            You could argue that the United States has a basis for invasion based on genocide under the United Nations charter, but that is about it and I’m dubious about that argument in THIS situation.

            Since America intervened in the Mexicsn Civil War and ended up uniting both sides against us, it’s been obvious that America is NEVER benefitted by what our founding fathers called “Military Adventurism” and “Foreign Entanglements.”

                Funny, you sound like your master, Hitler. You are quoting him from his speech “On the Jewish Question” in 1939.

                “For hundreds of years Germany was good enough to receive these elements, although they possessed nothing except infectious political and physical diseases. What they possess today, they have by a very large extent gained at the cost of the less astute German nation by the most reprehensible manipulations.

                “Today we are merely paying this people what it deserves. When the German nation was, thanks to the inflation instigated and carried through by Jews, deprived of the entire savings which it had accumulated in years of honest work, when the rest of the world took away the German nation’s foreign investments, when we were divested of the whole of our colonial possessions, these philanthropic considerations evidently carried little noticeable weight with democratic statesmen.”

        • You just made up that word, ‘politicide’. Don’t you mean he committed landreformicide, where he killed off the colonial land ownership pattern, where 5% of the population (guess who) owned 43% of the country.

          Notice the land European Areas of Zimbabwe until 2000. For research rather than invective based understanding of Zimbabwe, check out prof. Ian Scoones website:

            No, actually the word “Politicide” is one that I heard on national public radio. It refers to the mass murder of people in an opposing political party.

            I’ll look it up when I have better access to Google.

              And while you are at it read some history on Rhodesia .

              • James Wherry

                Wouldn’t it be better to stick to the topic? Zimbabwe?

                While a purchase of farm land and redistribution of the land should have benefitted the Zimbabwean people, it did not. Many parcels lie fallow, while close cronies of Mugabe’s got the choice land and became the “new plantation owners,” complete with mansions.

                  Hey, CHICKEN HAWK, the recreation of Rhodesia is the PURPOSE of the destruction of Zimbabwe.

                  James Wherry is a “hasbara” troll in the employ of the Rothschild/Zionist cabal.

                  • James Wherry

                    Tapatio praises the NAZ!s by name for the Holocaust and 100 other instances of the ethnic cleansing of Jews including in “78. 1936-45: NAZ! controlled areas.”

                    People on this page who criticize Israel don’t generally PRAISE and JUSTIFY the NAZ!s by name.

                    Tapatio does.

                      POOR LITTLE CHICKEN-HAWK. DID MARIO KICK YOU OUT OF BED? MUST BE HARD TO KEEP HIM HAPPY ON YOUR RETIREMENT, HUH?

                        Again, you s-xually obsess about me and my husband. Go away ,dirtly old man. You’re old enough to be my father.

            Here’s the word, as used in 2011. I did not make it up. http://www.counterpunch.org/2011/04/08/the-politicide-of-zimbabwe/

            James Wherry has bragged about “training” the state sponsored terrorists of Uganda. Wherry was a major with Army “Civil Affairs” – the darlings that created the Phoenix Program in Vietnam. Today, Wherry is nothing but a “hasbara” troll for the Zionist cabal and, to use a bit of gay slang, an especially repulsive form of “chicken hawk” – Wherry bought a young boy from the Philippines and brought him back as his “husband”.
            He proudly married the kid in front of reporters, as the first gay marriage in his part of Georgia (that’s how I got the photos).

            • James Wherry

              Too bad “tapatio the NAZ! has nothing to say about this thread.
              None of what “tapatio” has said is true. I did marry a man in his mid-20’s. Homophobes and neo-NAZ!s like tapatio accuse adult gay men of being “pedophiles, all the time. “Tapatio” justies the abuse of gay men, if they “ACT UP” in public.

          • James Wherry

            The “thing” below is “tapatio,” MintPressNews’ Pet Naz!. His comments show he is TAPA-PEDOPHILE, a latent gay, too ashamed of his own homosexuality that he attacks others.
