As nation starves, Senagal president builds $28 million tribute to Negro race. Paid for with money from US taxpayers.
A $28 million dollar bronze statue, billed as an international monument to the African race, was unveiled in Senegal today. Jesse Jackson, along with other black American celebrities, attended the event.
This $28 million tribute to “African Renaissance” overlooks shanty towns and piles of garbage. It’s unveiling corresponds with Senegal getting a $540 million bonus from US taxpayers for “good governance.” Senegal already gets about $85 million a year from US taxpayers. Foreign aids constitutes over 1/4th of the budget of the government of Senegal.
Several other African leaders, including the brutal dictator of Zimbabwe, also attended.
The monument is supposed to signify that “Africa has arrived in the 21st century.”
President Wade hired North Korean based Mansudae Overseas Projects to design, cast, and build the entire project. The company sent 50 North Korean artists to Senegal to build the statue. The same company builds communist party monuments in North Korea.
Wade says of the statue, “Africa has arrived in the 21st century standing tall and more ready than ever to take its destiny into its hands.” Apparently not, since Senegal couldn’t even build it’s own statue.
Now think about this. The US taxpayers fund the government of Senegal. The money for this project benefited an entity of the North Korean Communist Party. This means that money from the US taxpayers went directly to the North Korean Communists.
Senegalese preside Wade declared that the last French troops would be leaving Senegal this year, and that Africans would control 100% of the nation’s land. Wade also plans to keep 35% of the admission to see the statue for himself and claims that anyone using it’s image must pay him royalties directly.
Meanwhile a massive protest march against the statue and president Wade took place in the nation’s capitol. Protests are upset that $28 million was spent on a statue instead of food and housing. Christian groups protested Wade’s comparison of the statue to Jesus Christ. Muslim groups protested the statue as “idol worship.”
Over 25% of the budget of the Senegal government comes from foreign aid and charity from white nations. America is Senegal’s largest sponsor, giving the country $85 million a year. At the beginning of 2010, Hillary Clinton presented president Wade with a $540 million “reward for good governance.”
