Politically correct imperialism

Among other reasons, President Obama hates the West, and Western values, because his father hated Western colonialism.

Liberals like Obama condemn Western cultural “imperialism,” where Western countries tried to impose Western values, such as the rule of law, on defenseless third-world colonies.

But it turns out that liberals, with Obama leading the charge, are the new imperialists.  Since 2012 the United States has spent nearly $700,000,000 to advance gay “rights” in the Third world.

These new imperialists don’t seem to care that in the face of an exploding national debt, spending $200,000,000 – which could provide affordable housing for thousands of poor Americans – a year on forcing other countries to accept liberal values is a gross misuse of taxpayer dollars.

They are also unconcerned about what the people in the Third World think.  Fierce opposition has come from African governments and private organizations, which accuse the United States of cultural imperialism.  Pressing gay rights on an unwilling continent, they say, is the latest attempt by Western nations to impose their values on Africa.

“In the same way that we don’t try to impose our culture on anyone, we also expect that people should respect our culture in return,” said Theresa Okafor, a Nigerian active in lobbying against gay rights.

African resistance to declaring active homosexuality to be fine is based on their culture, which recognizes the fact that the active gay lifestyle leads to early death and massive public health problems.  Being actively gay is bad for the individual and for society.

Trying to force liberal hedonistic values on Africans builds upon the decades that liberals have spent trying to convince people of color around the world that the solution to their problem is killing their unborn babies.  Apparently, both here and overseas, a key target of liberals is reducing the number of brown babies.

The essential message from Obama’s trampling on other cultures is that he, like most all liberals, doesn’t really object to enforcing his beliefs, such as how abortion and being gay are great, on others, whether it’s Africans or the Little Sisters of the Poor, using the full power of the American government. 

In fact, he celebrates his ability to use money he didn’t earn and power he didn’t create to practice the worst excesses of historical colonialism.

It’s important to note that Hillary Clinton is fully on board with using American might to force liberal morality on people of color around the world.

After Hillary is crowned the Democrat champion, ask your friends who support her if they’re cool with using hundreds of millions of dollars each year, money that could be used to improve the plight of poor Americans, to force other cultures to accept “American” values.
