More brutal and gory details of the man Obama unequivocally supports. Obama is so busted. This is more than bad judgment, this is scary. A Jacksonian who has done yeoman's work in substantiating Odinga's nefarious Arab ties and his hand in the ongoing violence that has all of Kenya in its barbaric clutches. Inconceivable horror. Gang raping little girls and boys as many as ten times. That's just the tip of the iceberg.
Obama has backed Odinga unequivocally going so far as telling big media (out of TIME Magazine's Joe Klein here),
"Obama has had near-daily conversations with the U.S. Ambassador in Kenya or with opposition leader Raila Odinga. As of late this afternoon, before his rally in Rochester, N.H., Obama was trying to reach Kenyan President Kibaki."
And he still hasn't reached him I bet. More on Odinga and Obama's phone conversations here.
This is beyond bad judgment. This is just bad and this story is not going to go away no matter how desperately in love Obamedia is with the Christ child. Big media does not control information anymore. And Obama is culpable. Here I am -- an individual blogger getting all this terrible information on Odinga and the man running for POTUS is in the dark? Think about it.
Obama's bias for his fellow Luo was so blatant that a Kenya government spokesman denounced Obama during his visit as Raila's "stooge."
A Jacksonian sent me this stunning comment (with links) on his post The other source of change in Kenyan politics made by one of his readers, mobysnny:
It's not getting reported in the media that the looting and burning of businesses in Kisumu was targeted to both Kikuyus and Kenyan Indians. The economy of Kenya is controlled by these two groups because they are Entrepreneurial. But Kenyan Indians rarely get involved in Kenyan politics, they do not vote by choice, yet the Luos in Kisumu do not like them, that's why their stores were getting burnt too.
I mentioned in my other comment about Luo supporters of Odinga abroad were telling each other to contact TV stations and spread about the violence in Kenya. Here is one sent by a Luo to Jerusalem Post.
I was shocked by the lies this man decided to tell the post. That is the reason we are seeing all this stories making Odinga and his supporters look like angels even as they kill people.
Can you believe these Luos abroad were telling their supporters in Kenya that William Ruto and Raila Odinga had been arrested immediately after the election results. Which was total lies. It was meant to incite ODM supporters in Kenya mainly Luos and Kalenjin (Ruto is a Kalenjin). That's another reason we were seeing the violence getting worse.
Another false rumour they were spreading was that the Police Commissioner had resigned in protest to the election results. The government had to contact Kenyans by cell phones (Text Messages) and tell them that the rumours were false and that anybody found inciting people with force rumours will be prosecuted.
Bishop Cornelius Korir of Eldoret confirms the killings were organized and planned. It is believed Odinga and his ODM Pentagon members had planned it all, long before elections, and especially William Ruto the MP for Eldoret North (the burning of women and children in a church).
Leftwing media spin:
But here is what is happening:
This is a complete disaster. Luo Nyanza leads the country with HIV/AIDS . Two main reasons, one is, they have this tradition called Wife Inheritance, whereby if your brother dies, the tradition requires that you marry his widow. The other reason is that their men do not circumcise. It's another tradition they wouldn't give up. Recent studies have shown that the spread of HIV is higher in groups that don't circumcise.
Rape, the Mob's Latest Weapon in Kenya Telgraph
By Adrian Blomfield in Kisumu
Hundreds of women and children, including boys as young as five, have been gang-raped in a wave of sexual violence that has swept Kenya in the aftermath of last week's disputed presidential election.
As ethnic hatred mounts in a country teetering on the brink of catastrophe, disturbing reports are emerging that angry mobs are adding rape to their arsenal of revenge.
At a hospital for women in the Nairobi suburb of Hurlingham, doctors said that they had treated 24 women and 13 girls over the past four days.
Three boys were also admitted after being repeatedly sodomized. "Most of them have been gang-raped, one of them by 10 men," said Rahab Ngugi, the hospital's matron.
"We believe we only know about a fraction of cases because most people have no transport to get to hospitals or are still trapped because of the security situation."
The vast majority of the victims had been assaulted in their own homes and all had been targeted because of their tribe, the doctors said.
Most were members of President Mwai Kibaki's Kikuyu tribe, attacked in Nairobi's slums by other ethnic groups who support Raila Odinga, his Luo challenger.
The mobs had smashed their way into their homes, the women told doctors. Attacking everyone they found inside with machetes and clubs, the youths raped them in front of their husbands, some of whom were later killed.
Aid workers said they had received reports of similar attacks across the country, although no statistics are available
There's more. Read the whole thing.
It seems they are using rape as another way of killing.
And talking about Luo traditions. When you marry one you marry the clan. They have a habit of creating havoc when a Luo man dies, and especially a wealthy one, the wife is no longer the one in charge of where her husband gets buried.
While Otieno's body lay in cold storage last week in a Nairobi mortuary, the legal battle raged over whether the lawyer should receive a traditional Luo tribal burial at his ancestral homeland near Lake Victoria or a Christian interment outside Nairobi. His widow Wambui Otieno initially feared she would be made to shave her head and marry Otieno's younger brother if the burial were held according to Luo custom. While her qualms now appear unfounded, she continues to insist that Luo tribal laws are "out of step with civilization."
( By the way, Wangari Maathai is 2004 Nobel Peace Prize winner. Became First African woman to win Nobel Prize. She is Kikuyu)
A Swedish White Lady married to a Luo in Sweden, the Luos gave her hell and they wanted to make it appear like it was a Kenyan thing, which it was not:
(Kenya Stockholm is a Luo web site)
One of the Quotes from the site's commentaries:
"Maggero's wife understands the Luo culture "like the back of her hands" and the lightning appearing on her back yard on the funeral arrangements could be hiding evidence that she is well aware about the major downpour that may be on the way"
Jacksonian, I can get more on this case if you want me to paste.
An interesting Journal article you can get online. It has more information. It's on pdf format and I don't know how to paste it here. If you google it, you'll get it. It's interesting:
"The nature of decline: distinguishing myth from reality in the case of the Luo of Kenya"
Last but not least, have any of you read the book by Amy Chua "World On Fire: How Exporting Free Market Democracy Breeds Ethnic Hatred and Global Instability" ?
It talks about the background behind the hatred of Indians and Kikuyus in Kenya.
