Hillary might have some explaining to do to her base, with the latest batch of emails released from her days as Secretary of State. Her supporters in the Democratic Party are particularly attuned to minority issues and the social and economic struggles of those in developing countries. Additionally, nearly two-thirds of African-American voters went Democrat in the last election, a demographic the party has come to rely on over the years.
Imagine how damaging it should be to Hillary, then, if the mainstream media decides to pick up on probably the most explosive revelation from Hillary’s latest server dump: She knew that the Libyan rebels her State Department backed were systematically committing genocide against black Africans in Libya and she did nothing about it!
The pretext for US participation in the attack on Libya and overthrow of its secular government was that Gaddafi was about to attack his own people in the eastern part of the country. The justification for the US attack was the doctrine of “R2P” – the Responsibility to Protect civilians targeted by their government. In fact, US intervention in Libya actually facilitated an attack on civilians — and especially black Africans — by mobs of US-backed jihadists. Hillary knew about it because she had been warned by her trusted advisor Sid Blumenthal. And she did nothing. She went along with the pre-decided policy even though she knew the horrors it brought to anyone in Libya with black skin — many of them simply manual workers imported to do construction and similar jobs.
As the Anti-Media points out (via Zero Hedge):
In an email on March 27, 2011 [PDF], Blumenthal informs Secretary Clinton that a Libyan rebel commander told him that “his troops continue to summarily execute all foreign mercenaries captured in the fighting.”
Summarily execute is a nice way of saying they are straight up killing anyone they see, who they think could be a “foreign mercenary.”
So, you ask, how are the rebels determining who are (and are not) foreign mercenaries based merely on sight?
The answer is based on the color of their skin. But the killings were not just cases of mistaken identity, they were part of a racial grudge connected to perceived favoritism by the Gaddafi government.
As the BBC reported in 2011, the war for the rebels extended to black Libyan civilians and sub-Saharan contract workers. The town of Tawergha, whose residents were descendants of black slaves, was “cleansed” by the rebels. The 30,000 people who lived in Tawergha were forced to flee, many unable to outrun the rebels and subjected to beatings, rape, and those summary executions Blumenthal mentioned.
Hillary you knew that blacks were being massacred in Libya solely because of the color of their skin and you did nothing. Why?
