I wrote a comment on a WordPress blog. I did not appreciate his rants on a post “Israel vs Zion” and told him that killing Jews during Nazi Germany was not acceptable. I took serious offence and quoting his words “the poor malnutritioned Zionist fucks out of Germany” I commented “if you are referring to Nazi era Germany when Jews were sent to concentration camp then I have only one thing to say: Your essay is gross and insulting to the memory of people who died because they were Jewish.”
His answer was swift “I’m not apologizing, because foremost ashkenazi scum were being gonna come to my country, displace the men, rape our women and children and i’m supposed to feel sorry because their ancestors pissed off the germans and the christians?! I almost felt bad for a second there though, to be honest, then i went over to your blog with it’s abundance of ignorance pertaining the history of your people and islam. Muslims are all like some cultivated image of osama? Ok well then, all white people are charles manson.”
Cry me an onion “Yep! So you are the one who sold your own kind into slavery. You enslaved them, branded them with hot iron, raped a few and then sold them to the slave traders. I still think the way you portray your xenophobia is wrong and I don’t care the way you label or use your insults.
Please don’t apologize.”
I will spare the complete exchange, gossip is not my forte, and was amused by his sudden religious fervor when completing his last sentence with “May Allah (swt) have mercy on your confused self and may HIS blessings keep raining down on my country Kenya.”
The comments did not come from a member of the Ku Klux Klan or a skin head. No, it was not the case; it came from an African blogger.
I don’t approve holocaust, mass or singular killing of anyone. Regardless of their religion, tribe, the way they look or even homosexual tendencies. The world is diverse, I am not a lackey to all causes, but I abhor human destructions to satisfy self-righteous phobia.
Especially during 27 January which is International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
To advocate or approve killing of anyone because they don’t look or agree with one’s cause is the sublime moronic epithet. This African blogger from what I can assume he is in the mid-twenties, middle class background, extreme nationalist, in denial, suffering from dementia of greatness, enjoys expensive play station and maybe Muslim from what I gather.
I wish to remind him of what people with his thinking have done to the world;
- Menghistu (Ethiopia, 1975-78) 1,500.00
- Yakubu Gowon (Biafra, 1967-1970) 1,000,000
- Jean Kambanda (Rwanda, 1994) 800,000
- Jonas Savimbi (Angola, 1975-2002) 400,000
- Idi Amin (Uganda, 1969-1979) 300,000

- Robert Mugabe (1982-87, Ndebele people) 20,000
- Paul Koroma (Sierra Leone, 1997) 6,000
I will leave it at that and not give you his full details, 15 minutes of fame to his blog and all the people he associates with will give too much pleasure.
