According to the Obama Administration at the recent U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit held in the nation’s capital, support of the homosexual agenda is the key to successful economic development for African nations — and the ticket for receiving billions of dollars in foreign aid.
“Some of the incredible cultures of some of our U.S. businesses that do a really good job promoting people and maintaining a meritocracy, and treating women equally, and treating people of different races and faiths and sexual orientations fairly and equally, and making sure that there are typical norms of how you deal with people in contracts and respect legal constraints — all those things I think can then take root in a country like Zimbabwe or any other country,” President Barack Obama told leaders at the summit. “Hopefully, governments are encouraging that, not inhibiting that.”
As crises on the African continent continue to mount, including the Ebola outbreak sweeping across nations, Islamic militants attacking Christians in Nigeria and militias clashing in Libya, Obama and Vice President Joe Biden didn’t miss a step in promoting the normalization and endorsement of homosexual behavior. This uncanny approach to foreign policy was addressed by Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ).
“I do think that, unfortunately, there’s been an obsession by some within the administration — and that goes for the president himself — to promote the abortion agenda and the LGBT agenda in our foreign policy,” Smith told Family Research Council President Tony Perkins on the "Washington Watch" radio broadcast. “These issues are what drives this administration in much of our foreign policy in Africa.”
Jumping aboard the h-agenda to economic prosperity
Vice President Joe Biden has also been reported to play an integral role in making sure that the U.S.’s foreign policy is used as a vehicle for promoting homosexuality. In a speech addressing the incessant concerns of African leaders about how they can boost their nations’ economy and development in the midst of war, disease and poverty, Biden stood beside the president’s overseas homosexual agenda.
Making the steps quite clear that nations must take to pull in more aid, Biden emphasized that African leaders must work to ensure that their governments become increasingly gay-friendly and accommodating, stressing that this policy alignment will bring increased levels of investment, along with talented personnel from nations in the West.
“There are certain common ingredients to success in the 21st century that have become self-evident,” Biden declared. “The need for economic integration; a court system that adjudicates disputes fairly; a commitment to invest in all of a society’s people and respect their rights, because countries that respect citizens’ equal rights no matter what their gender or religion, no matter who they love, tend to be the … most attractive to attracting international talent and international investment.”
Obama wasted little time to use financial incentives to encourage leaders from 56 African nations to enforce policies that promote the nationwide cultural acceptance of homosexual behavior, which begin with increasing the legal protections and privileges for the LGBTQ community.
“They recognize that that’s how the world as a whole is increasingly moving in that direction,” Obama explained at the conference, noting that people from all “sexual orientations” need to be treated “equally and fairly” in every facet of public life. “And over time, you will see an Africa that is driven by individual entrepreneurs and private organizations, and governments will be responsive to their demands.”
This was said by the president in response to an inquiry at the summit’s Q&A session, where he capitalized on the opportunity to urge business leaders and government officials to exude an acceptance and tolerance of homosexual behavior, as witnessed in Western nations.
No support of homosexuality...no funds
Threats by Western nations to terminate humanitarian aid to countries refusing to endorse and protect homosexuality continue to grow.
“Many of these countries deeply resent it because they are profoundly pro-marriage and profoundly pro-life,” says Smith, who maintains that some countries not in compliance with the internationally pushed homosexual agenda have forfeited much aid. “But when your foreign aid is being limited or conditioned on those two issues [homosexuality and abortion], there are some, but thankfully not many, in these governments who begin to weaken.”
The ultimatums given by the president and vice president for African nations to fully support pro-homosexual policies or surrender aid are not new, and because homosexual behavior is illegal in most African countries that overwhelmingly support bans on such activity, some leaders have become upset by the aggressive push.
Just last year, Obama greatly offended the heads of state of several African nations when he publicly condemned their laws against homosexual behavior while making a $100-million African tour addressing the AIDS crisis. Another objection to the West’s forceful promotion of the homosexual agenda abroad was vehemently stated by the African, Pacific and Caribbean Group of States in a resolution that publicly denounced continued attempts by Western nations to blackmail African countries into enforcing laws that protect homosexual behavior in order to continue receiving charitable aid.
Obama repeatedly lashed out against recently passed legislation that targets homosexual men and women, including new laws adopted in Uganda. Even though Obama’s public condemnation of laws reflecting the widely accepted traditional values held in most African nations is not predicted to mainstream homosexuality across the continent anytime soon, it is feared that needy governments will start to cave in to the agenda — unable to pay the financial cost of resistance.
Giving homosexual activists the world stage
Described by many as being the most pro-homosexual president in our nation’s history, Obama did not let down the LBBT community — giving a key "gay" activist a platform to promote the normalization of homosexuality, but he was discontent that it was not enough.
“The Obama Administration has unequivocally demonstrated global leadership on the human rights of LGBT people, and the president will leave a legacy for his engagement with international civil society,” stated Human Rights First Advocacy counsel Shawn Gaylord. “That is why it is most disappointing that the White House chose to keep these issues literally on the margins in side events, and exclude civil society and human rights defenders from the same White House meetings corporate CEOs and investors were invited to.”
Gaylord was speaking out of frustration that his “robust side events were not widely attended by the leaders who most need to hear these messages.” He regretted that he and other homosexual activists did not receive individual invitations to partake in the presidential-level discussions taking place between top business investors and world leaders, declaring the summit a “missed opportunity.”
This interpretation of the event as not catering to the demands of the LGBT community didn’t jive with National Security Council Spokesperson Ned Price.
“The Obama Administration has long spoken out — including with our African partners — in support of universal human rights and fundamental freedoms for all, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals,” Price announced, adding that the administration is as committed as ever to promoting ‘gay’ rights abroad. “The Summit has provided an opportunity to continue these conversations.”
A new legacy
Also attending the summit was former President George W. Bush, who launched a $15 billion HIV/AIDS initiative during his administration, minus any strings attached to garner support for the homosexual agenda.
“There’s not many things that convince me to come back to Washington,” Bush stated at the summit, possibly alluding his aversion to the politics currently taking place in the White House.
Partnering with First Lady Michelle Obama, Bush hosted an all-day event set up for the spouses of African leaders.
Even though Obama is continuing Bush’s signature AIDS program, his current focus is on creating his own legacy to build initiatives in Africa that promote his aggressive foreign policy that includes laws protecting abortion and homosexuality across the continent.
