Anti-LGBTQI+ Crusading Sam George Needs Psychiatric Examination

Features Anti-LGBTQI+ Crusading Sam George Needs Psychiatric Examination
MAR 31, 2024 LISTEN

In his publicly and globally embarrassing 6-minute address on his visceral and inveterate animosity for members of the LGBTQI+ Community or Subculture all around the world but especially in Ghana, in whose august Parliament Mr. Samuel George Nartey – aka Sam George – serves as the Constituency Representative for Ningo-Prampram Township, in the Greater-Accra Region, at the United Nations’ Headquarters in New York City, on Friday, November 17, 2023, the Nigerian-born Ghanaian legislator morbidly demonstrated his abject lack of an emotionally and a psychologically mature appreciation for the stark and the very basic distinction between “Sex” as a biological attribute and the expression of “Human Sexuality” as a largely instinctive display of affection and desire by one human being for another or mutually inclusively and simultaneously.

Ironically, had he read any or enough of the considerable corpus of the writings of one of Ghana’s most prominent and globally respected and authoritative obstetrician-gynecologists by the name of Dr. Frederick Torgbor Sai (1924-2019), vis-à-vis the mercurial complexity of the vast gamut of human sexuality or sexual expression, the academically nondescript graduate of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi, would not have made such an arrant fool of himself and put the reputation of the Sovereign Democratic Republic of Ghana into such a stereotypically bad light (See “Watch Sam George’s 6-Minutes[sic] Anti-LGBTQI+ Address at the UN” 11/20/23).

It is ironic because Dr. F T Sai, who is on record as having cofounded the Planned Parenthood Association of Ghana long before the birth of Sam George, was born and raised in the same vicinity as the grossly misguided Anti-LGBTQI+ crusader who pretends to legitimately represent the moral and the core cultural values of his constituents, which he farcically confuses with the totality of the moral, social and the cultural values of Ghanaians and Continental Africans at large.

How dangerously and scandalously pathetic and untenably peevish! No wonder then that the former self-confessed domestic help and sometime butler of the late Mr. E T Mensah, the man Sam George so strategically and viciously unseated and publicly humiliated and, in turn ended up being publicly and disdainfully disowned as the valet of former President John “European Airbus Payola” Dramani Mahama by the latter – Sam George had mendaciously styled himself as a Mahama Presidential Staffer – would end up playing some “XY and XX” chromosomal games in his scholastically jejune and intellectually incoherent presentation at the 5th Transatlantic Summit in New York City that was reportedly sponsored by some organization called the Political Network for Values.

It is also not clear to many of us avid pundits and human and civil rights activists that politicizing human sexuality in the faux-religious manner being done by the stereotypical schoolyard bully likes of Messrs. Moses Foh-Amoaning, Kwabena Opuni-Frimpong, Sam Geoge and Alban Bagbin, to name only a handful, has any morally and socioeconomically redeeming benefits for either the development of Ghana as a nation or the total and the organic development of Continental Africa at large.

For example, how does the prohibitive proscription of the LGBTQI+ Subculture facilitate the wanton environmentally destructive activities of Galamsey or illegal small-scale mining in the country, an existentially abominable phenomenon that was almost uniquely created by the predatory socio-politically irresponsible policies of the Jeremiah “Jerry” John Rawlings-led government of the National Democratic Congress throughout much of the 1990s, when privately contracted Chinese miners with Changfang excavators and chainsaws were invited into the country by the Rawlings and the Ahwoi Gang, in the wake of Beijing’s gifting to Ghana of the multi-million-dollar National Theater in Accra, and ended up laying most of our major pristine waterbodies and forestry resources to waste?

And, by the way, have the morally self-righteous likes of Sam George and Speaker Bagbin ever reckoned the fact that most of the designer suits and shoes and such matching accessories as neckties and socks that they so arrogantly pride themselves in wearing and showing off to their far less privileged fellow citizens as a mark of their enviable “arrivant” status, were actually designed and custom-tailored by such globally renowned gay fashion mavens as Yves Saint Laurent, Jean Paul Gaultier, Tom Ford and Alexander McQueen? Not to mention the culturally ubiquitous Versace and Giorgio Armani? I have said this umpteen times before to my old and former students and herein, again, repeat the same. Which is that: “One does not enter a supermarket and ask the manager where the frozen heterosexual chicken and meat are kept.”

Or are Sam George and his fellow moral basket cases of Anti-LGBTQI+ crusaders aware of the fact that homosexuality and queerness occur in most of Nature, including birds and four-legged animals? You see, the problem is far less about the fact of whether one feels viscerally disgusted with the perfectly “natural,” even if not necessarily “normal,” expression of homosexuality, either privately or publicly. Rather, it has to do with the morally abominable attempt by the Moses Foh-Amoanings and the Kwabena Opuni-Frimpongs and, yes, the Same Georges and the Alban Bagbins to play God right here on Earth among their fellow “Humans,” that is living beings who, just like themselves, were fashioned out of urine, mud, dust and ashes. It is such proprietary arrogance with which we are most solemnly concerned.
