Obama: Murdering African Albinos and Harvesting Their Organs is a “Foolish Tradition”

Strange how this killing babies and selling their organs is so recognizably evil to the President when it is done somewhere else.

All people are equal, but some are more equal than others. The lives of the unborn don’t matter one bit. Lion lives matter. And now you can add the lives of African albinos to that list.

Apparently, in some places in Africa, people born with albinism are killed, and their “lucky” body parts harvested. Sound familiar?

I’m sure it sounded quite familiar to Obama when the issue was brought up with him, but he couldn’t flat out condemn it, because then he’d have to condemn Planned Parenthood, and that’s never going to happen. So, he resorted to calling this tradition of murdering African albinos “foolish.” CNS News reported:

At the Young African Leaders Initiative summit in Washington D.C., President Obama was asked about the killing of Albinos in Africa and the harvesting of their body parts for ritual purposes.

“Persons with Albinism in Africa are being killed and their body parts harvested for ritual purposes,” a woman in the audience said. “My request to you is to raise this issue with heads of state of African countries to bring these atrocities to an end.”

Obama condemned the practice as “foolish traditions.”

“When I was in Africa, I said, there are important traditions and folkways that need to be respected that’s part of who each culture is — each country is — but there’s also foolish traditions and old ways of doing business,” Obama said.

 The president focused on the issue as one of discrimination.

“The notion that any African would discriminate against somebody because of the color of their skin, after what black people around the world have gone through – is crazy.”

“It is infuriating and I have no patience for it,” Obama continued. 

Sky News had reported about these cases involving the ritualistic use of albino body parts:

Despite the Tanzanian government introducing a ban on witch doctors, who claim charms and spells made using albino body parts bring wealth and good luck, at least 70 people who suffer from albinism have been murdered in the African country over the past 10 years.

[…]

On the Tanzanian black market, the entire corpse of an albino person can sell for £49,000.

I just don’t see what the difference is between this and what Planned Parenthood does on a daily basis. Yet, Obama sings Planned Parenthood’s praises.

What if a country’s government made albino killing and body part-harvesting legal? What if their court system decided it would be wrong to ban such a practice, because it’s become an important part of their culture? Would Obama mildly condemn it still, or would he respect their decision?

What is his mild outrage really about? The fact that countries have put a ban on the practice, and that people are disobeying that law? Or is it more that the practice is obviously morally wrong, regardless of what their government thinks?

People don’t like abortion, because it’s murder, regardless of what our government thinks. Abortion is murder, and murder will always be morally wrong, no matter what a judge opines. If Obama’s going to at least pretend to be outraged by this “foolish tradition” of killing albinos for their body parts, then he should be equally outraged over America’s “foolish tradition” of killing their unborn out of convenience and selling body parts for profit.
