Despite the best efforts of the Mind-bending manipulative propaganda machines like the CNN, BBC, DW, etc etc, the West continue to suffer from a crisis of credibility.
The reason is simple.
As the Great writer, James Baldwin told us: “I can't believe what you say, because I see what you do.”
Recent events in Afghanistan have, once again, revealed the West for what exactly it is: a low-life, parsimonious, greedy, treacherous, and hypocritical liar.
Westerners go everywhere, deafening our ears with sanctimonious noises about being agitated by the plight of the suffering people of the world, but what did the bloody hypocrites do after the Talibans put a stop to their plundering and racketeering in their country?
They are scampering for ways to reinforce the already imposing fortress they built to keep the afflicted away, with Greece, touted as the home of democracy, leading the way in constructing high walls and things.
American officials are shamelessly beseeching poor countries to carry the burden of caring for the Afghan traitors they drafted into their service.
The biggest problem, however, is not that Westerners continue to behave true to type, but that we still have some Africans who continue to believe in the stupid, and vomit-inducing nonsense Western media dish out.
