The white liberal philanthropist lobby will wag its fingers and continue to give aid to these shitholes.

Great Britain and the U.S. will keep giving to Nigeria and Uganda, because their “support” has always been mere posturing.

I think that GLBTQ taxpayers in first-world countries must pressure their governments to stop sending their tax money as foreign aid to prop up regimes which pass laws like this.

“We Shall Have a War With the Homosexual Lobby of the World”

It looks like he’s decided to center his re-election campaign on waging war against homosexuals. The election could turn into a contest to see who can demonize and attack gays the most.

This is worse than the Lavender Scare and the anti-gay constitutional amendments in the US. I hope it doesn’t turn into pogroms, which is what is happening in Cameroon and Nigeria.

There’s nothing good about this except it should make it easier to show persecution for the few asylum seekers who can find their way to South Africa, Western Europe and North and South America.

Lucrece, I understand the sentiment, but I assume you are talking about Foreign Aid and not “philanthropy”.

I think oil and natural resources will always be probably the biggest factor in the government+corporate interests in Africa. At least until we drain it dry and then no one here will give a sh*t.

One of the reasons I give to the Rainbow World Fund is that those receiving philanthropic aid will not be able to ignore the connection between my humanitarian values and my wallet.

All U.S. government foreign aid should be abolished. We cant afford it, even to “good” countries.
