This was the piece in today's evening standard newspaper in britain, that is demonising our past and present anti-imperialist world leaders, with two African leaders being singled out and with particular focus on Mugabe.
It reminds me of the Mao quote "We should support whatever the enemy opposes and oppose whatever the enemy supports." Of course there are more nuances to struggle than this, nevertheless, Mao's comment is still a general good rule of thumb for revolutionaries.
Some of the descriptions of these revolutionary leaders by the propagandist of white supremacy and empire (aka 'journalist') who wrote the piece:
"Tyrant with blood of millions of your stunted conscience"
'Butcher of Harare"
"Psychotically and pathologically desperate to be loved"
"Grotesque of the glory supporter taken to its extreme"
"Enemies of community"
"Fraud, a moral pygmy"
If there was any reasonable appraisal of world history and the world today, these comments would be attributed to the leaders of the white power structure, but a journalist of the white power structure will always put things the exact opposite way round.
Whatever you think about these leaders, empire propaganda such as this is designed to humiliate and degrade ALL peoples of the GlobalSouth, in preparation for the lynchings and looting which imperialism does and has done on a world scale for over 5 centuries.
As Malcolm X often said, do not let the enemy educate and fool you.
