Think I'm just bloviating about Jimmy Carter being the absolute worst, disaster of a President in U.S. history? The ascendancy of Robert Mugabe, by far Africa's most brutal, murdering dictator and best friend of Jimmy, to the presidency of Zimbabwe is the direct result of Carter's nullification of free elections in what was known as Rhodesia. Read this and weep for the victims of Carter's meddling and support of Mugabe...
HARARE, Zimbabwe — Pets are being slaughtered for meat in shortage-stricken Zimbabwe and record numbers of animals have been surrendered to shelters or abandoned by owners no longer able to feed them, according to animal welfare groups.
One animal rights activist, who asked not to be named out of fear of arrest, called the situation "too ghastly for words.
Activists say they have been threatened with arrest for speaking out and SPCA offices were raided by secret police agents of the Central Intelligence Organization on Thursday. SPCA inspectors said they were ordered not to release details of surrendered, abandoned, slain or eaten pets.
In Zimbabwe's economic meltdown, meat, cornmeal, bread and other staples have vanished from shops and stores. A government order to slash prices of all goods and services in June worsened acute food shortages and has left stores virtually empty of basic foodstuffs.
The prices clampdown aimed to tame official inflation of more than 7,600 percent, the highest in the world. Independent estimates put real inflation closer to 25,000 percent and the International Monetary Fund has forecast it reaching 100,000 percent by the end of the year.
Zimbabwe used to be the bread-basket of Africa. It produced so much food that it exported most of it and fed dozens of other poor African nations. Then in 1980, thug, terrorist Robert Mugabe seized control of the country with the help of Jimmy Carter. Mugabe ordered the murder of tens of thousands of rival tribe members, the rapes of thousands of relatives of rival politicians, and the nationalization of all white owned farms(most were white-owned). He then gave the farms to his thug buddies who knew nothing of farming. Predictably, the food supply quickly ran out, and Zimbabwe was plunged into the abyss of starvation, genocide, and despair...all with the help of one man without whom, none of it would have happened....Jimmy Carter the lovable peanut-president.
Thanks to Jimmy Carter, Fido here is now on the menu for starving Zimbabweans.
