#mugabe

Original Description--
"White farmers are under persecution in Zimbabwe. In June 2009 there were only 100 of them left.
Is it all about land redistribution, in order for the injustices of the colonization era to be rectified, when white farmers owned the best pieces of land, as president Mugabe claims? Or is it about the wiping out of the white population, a reverse racism, a political game so that he can remain in power? This is a documentary where there are no good guys apart from the tortured people of Zimbabwe. Its the image of Africas ex-granary that became synonymous with poverty, inflation, corruption, electoral fraud, violence and oppression."

I wanna highlight a comment a comment on the original video:
Jon Bryden (20018): "The great tragedy of Ian Smith's life is that he lived long enough to be proven right."

With the opposition trying to impeach him and his popularity at an all-time low, President Robert Mugabe has lashed out at Zimbabwe's white minority, threatening genocide trials for all who fought against him in the independence war.
Mugabe told supporters on Wednesday that Ian Smith, the white leader he helped overthrow two decades ago, and all whites who fought against black guerrillas would face trials for war crimes.
Speaking as he arrived for a debate in Oxford on Thursday, Ian Smith responded to these latest threats, saying Mugabe's actions belonged to a man clinging onto the last vestiges of power.
He challenged Mugabe to set up a truth and reconciliation committee, saying that he had nothing to fear.
Arriving at Oxford Union Thursday night, the former white leader of the former British colony of Rhodesia, Ian Smith laughed off President Mugabe's latest threat to put him on the stand.
Mugabe is calling for all whites who fought against black guerrillas to face trials for war crimes.
Mugabe has said the nation's 70,000 whites - less than 1 percent of the population of 13 million - mostly opposed his government and had spurned offers of forgiveness and reconciliation.
Smith rejected Mugabe threat, saying that the blame for the violence lay squarely on Mugabe's shoulders.
SOUNDBITE: (English)
"Well he is the one who should be put on trial for genocide isn't he, Mugabe -- not Smith."
SUPER CAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister
SOUNDBITE: (English)
"Well because he killed so many people, massacred them by the thousands, I mean Gurugundi and Matabeleland land, when he massacred 30,000 Matabeleles, I never remember massacring a single person in my life."

Smith said Mugabe's belligerent style of government had forced him into a corner - one which had made him desperate and dangerous.
SOUNDBITE: (English)
"He is in a state of panic, he doesn't know whether he is coming or going, he is like a wounded animal in a corner, dangerous and unpredictable. So I don't know what to say or what to think, it is difficult."
SUPERCAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister
When asked if he feared a trial, Smith openly challenged Mugabe to carry out his threats, saying he had nothing to fear.
SOUNDBITE: (English)
"No I would love it, let's get the truth, when your conscience is clear you have got no problem, have you?"
SUPERCAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister
However, when questioned if he felt any responsibility for the current state of the economy in Zimbabwe, Smith said the blacks had actually benefitted under British rule.
SOUNDBITE: (English)
"Certainly not, the black community will tell you they lived better under Smith than under Mugabe, they were brain washed by a communist propaganda machine into believing that things were going to improve, sadly they were taken for a ride."
SUPERCAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister
He said that the only way to establish the truth of Mugabe's accusations was to follow in the footsteps of South Africa's truth and reconciliation commission.
SOUNDBITE: (English)
I've challenged Mugabe to set up a commission of truth and reconciliation similar to the one they had in South Africa. My word I think that would frighten him if he had to face up to that thing, I would welcome it."
SUPERCAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister
Mugabe's threats come the same day a poll was released showing that 75 percent of Zimbabweans want Mugabe to resign and 51 percent want him prosecuted for human rights abuses.

For those of us in the White-positive sphere, there may be a few scenes near the start of the film that you may not agree with, namely the occasional remark in support of multiculturalism or colour-blind egalitarianism. But push that aside and there are important facts to be learned in this film regarding Robert Mugabe's brutal assault on White Rhodesians.

Michael Campbell -- a white, 75-year-old farmer living in Zimbabwe -- stands up for his rights against an oppressive government in this fascinating documentary. Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe's controversial "Land Reform" system has forced most White farmers out of the country, turning their properties over to inexperienced government officials. But Campbell, determined to defend his farm (and the black workers and family members who live there), takes his case to international court.

Mugabe and the White African is a 2009 documentary film by Lucy Bailey & Andrew Thompson and produced by David Pearson & Elizabeth Morgan Hemlock. It has won many awards including the Grierson 2010 and been BAFTA and Emmy Nominated.

EDIT: This is a reupload of the video of the same name. For some reason, it would not play. Also, this has a lower quality resolution, but that shouldn't detract from the message of the video.

Robert Mugabe was a dictator and communist. He destroyed the country of Zimbabwe and has plunged his people to suffer. Leftists call him a hero. Everyone else calls him a tyrant and genocidal dictator.

[Lyrics]
Mugabe repossessed my farm
E-I-E-I-ish
And on that farm we had somes ducks
E-I-E-I-ish
With an "I want the duck", "No, I want the duck!"
"No it's me that wants to eat that duck"
Mugabe repossessed my farm
E-I-E-I-ish

Mugabe repossessed my farm
E-I-E-I-ish
And on that farm we had a tractor
E-I-E-I-ish
With a "I want the tractor", "No it's muh taxi, it can take 48 people"
Mugabe repossessed my farm
E-I-E-I-ish

Tell me what happened to Zimbabwe
That lovely country, that we all used to know
Tell me what happened to Zim-ba-aaa-bwe
Well, I don't know but Bob must go!

Mugabe repossessed my farm
E-I-E-I-ish
And on that farm we had a forest
E-I-E-I-ish
With a "I want that wood", "No I want that wood", "No I want that wood to build a house that's cool"
Mugabe repossessed my farm
E-I-E-I-ish

Mugabe repossessed my farm
E-I-E-I-ish
And on that farm we had a cow
E-I-E-I-ish
With a "I want that cow", "No I want that Cow","No I need that cow to pay Abbula(?) now"
Mugabe repossessed my farm
E-I-E-I-ish

Tell me what happened to Zimbabwe
That lovely country, that we all used to know
Tell me what happened to Zim-ba-aaa-bwe
Well, I don't know but Bob must go!

Mugabe repossessed my farm
E-I-E-I-ish
And on that farm we had a Massey-Ferguson combine harvester with a twin cam overhead double diff and an optional GPI converter all parts imported.
Mugabe repossessed my farm
E-I-E-I-ish

Mugabe repossessed my farm
E-I-E-I-ish
Now, on that farm we had P*beep*ple
Here a *beep*ple, there a *beep*ple, everywhere a *beep*ple *beep*ple
Mugabe repossessed my farm
E-I-E-I-ish

Tell me what happened to Zimbabwe
That lovely country, that we all used to know

Well, I don't know but Bob must go!

Mugabe repossessed my farm
E-I-E-I-ish
Mooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

"Thames Televisons Jonathan Dimbleby explains how that the white dominated Rhodesian Army is one of the main sticking points in the peace process and the path to the creation of the Republic of Zimbabwe."
This is how it is described in 1977 by the BBC, Jut how many inconsistencies can one pick out in this video. Thankfully we live in the future. Sadly, Rhodesians did not have our vantage point.

[Lyrics]
I'm a psychopath,
My name is Bob Mugabe.
I'm deh Number One!;
Banana in Zimbabwe.
I haven't got a clue,
So I blame everything on you!
And da whities from London to Harare!" *

Bob's your uncle, Bob's your auntie;
Bob's your man, and Bob's your dad!
Bob's the long lost relative;
You never knew you had!

He's mean, he's rude, he's ugly;
And he's been there too long now!
He stole the last election,
And he's married to a cow!

P.W.'s Black Brother, *
He's the man that time forgot!
If he ever does any wrong,
It's all a racist plot!
The father of the nation;
Who abuses all his kids!
He took a wealthy country;
And he put it on the skids!

Waahoo! Hahahahaha!

Down near the tip of Africa,
There's terror in the air.
The Tinpot Tyrant rule the roost,
His country, worse for wear!
Bob Gabriel Mugabe;
Got a lot to answer for,
'Cause he the presidential crook
Who can't defy the law!

Nobody goes to work today,
'Cause unemployments rife!
Moyo lies, *
The press complies,
Bob's president for life!

Of course he won't capitulate,
Of course he won't resign!
There's plenty diamonds in the Congo
He still plans to mine!

Bob's your uncle, Bob's your auntie;
Bob's your man, and Bob's your dad!
Bob's chased away the farmers,
But he's really not that bad!

Who cares about economy,
The famine or the war!?
"Bob say: Any-time we like"
"We come back, we take more!"
"Democracy, Zimbabwe style!"
"Oh what a wondrous thing!"
Gaddafi pays our petrol bills, *
"Mbeki lets us sing!" *
"Bob cook deh books! Bob steal da show! Bob make sure dat he wins! Some say dat Bob the punishment for all Africa's sins!"

Waahoo!

Homophobia, Megalomania;
Ignorance and Cheek!
Hypocrisy, Dishonesty;
Dictator-of-the-Week!
"What human rights? What dignity!?
Da dignity is mine!
Play deh game, do tings my way,
I'm sure we'll get on fine!"

So What's this quiet diplomacy;
how long must people weep!?
It cant be right to let Bob run
Zimbabwe in his sleep!
'Cause he's run it into ruin;
And he's run it into debt...
If only Bob Mugabe
Hadn’t run for president...

The lands would all be planted,
There'd be food upon the shelf.
The UN aid that does arrive,
He keeps all to himself!
We wouldn't have to queue for fuel,
We'd all be pretty safe;
From ZANU Thugs with bloodshot eyes
From smoking too much scafe! *

What brought him to our country?
Someone throw the bastard out!
Perhaps a gay, white farmer;
Could come give this clot a clout,
And when his days are over,
And they've locked him in a cell...

We'll create a new single:
Mugabe, Go To Hell!

The lands would all be planted,
There'd be food upon the shelf!
The UN aid that does arrive,
He keeps all to himself!
We wouldn't have to queue for fuel,
We'd all pretty safe...
From ZANU thugs with bloodshot eyes
From smoking too much scafe!
From ZANU thugs with bloodshot eyes
From smoking too much scafe!
From ZANU thugs with bloodshot eyes
From smoking too much scafe.

Hahahahahaha
So what's scafe, 'en?
"Make it before the cops take it!"

Stanzas marked with (") are sung as Mugabe, and are transliterated.

P.W. stands for Pieter Willem Botha, a South African president.

Jonathan Moyo was a spokesman for ZANU-PF.

Muammar Gaddafi was a leader of Libya who mixed Socialism with Military Junta rule, which was very similar to Mugabe's style of leadership.

Thobo Mbeki was a Post-Apartheid South African president, he was a member of the ANC, which mixed SocDems, Socialists, and Black Nationalists into one party.

Scafe is a term for Weed, which was and is a popular drug among the black population of Zimbabwe, and attitudes toward it are some of the most positive in Africa.

ZANU, short for ZANU-PF, the Zimbabwean African National Union - Popular Front was the unified party of opposition against the Rhodesian Army. It eventually reformed itself into a structure similar to the Soviet Union's CPSU, which ensured a tight hold on the military through the party.
