Reagan supported Apartheid


Recommended Posts

I always thought Reagn was indifferent to the freedom movement. Kind of a clueless idiot. But what I didn't know is he actively backed apartheid. Way to go Ronny! Your nutjobs at NHB will absolutely love this one. Enjoy!!!

 

President Reagan continued to back the apartheid regime even as domestic and international pressure mounted, even as South African President Pieter W. Botha gave his infamous "Rubicon speech" saying his government would never accept one man, one vote. In 1986, Reagan vetoed the Comprehensive Anti-Apartheid Act, which would have imposed economic sanctions on South Africa unless it met five conditions. Releasing Mandela was one of them.

Yes, the first time in the 20th century a president had his veto overriden on a foreign policy issue. Sounds like a real "gray" issue there! lol He was clearly on the side of limiting sanctions and keeping whitey in power. History is clearly on my side...

Trans-National interests led that decision, just like Trans National Interests lead Obama in conflicts present and past, look at Syria, Libya, Bahrain, Af-Pak-Iraq and for what freedom? LOL.. $$$$$$$$$
