This one speaks for itself:
President Barack Obama told a group of young African leaders on Monday that harvesting organs from humans that are killed as part of an African ritual was “craziness” and a “cruel” tradition that needed to stop. He warned of dehumanizing marginal groups of humans and of the problems that arise when “you are not able to see someone else as a human being.”
In a wide-ranging question and answer session with members of the Young African Leaders Initiative [YALI], a woman from Kenya said “Persons with albinism in Africa are being killed and their body parts harvested for ritual purposes,” a woman in the audience said. “My request to you is to raise this issue with heads of state of African countries to bring these atrocities to an end.”
Obama decried the practice and went on to encourage the young people to do everything in their power to fight on the behalf of vulnerable humans.
“Young people, you can lead the way and set a good example. But it requires some courage because the old thinking, people will push back at you and if you don’t have convictions and courage to be able stand up for what you think is right, than cruelty will perpetuate itself,” he said. He added, “If there’s one thing I want YALI leaders to come out with, it’s the notion of you are strong by taking care of the people who are vulnerable, by looking after the minority, looking after the disabled, looking after the vulnerable. You’re not strong by putting people down you’re strong by lifting them up. That’s the measure of a leader.”
Obama also tied the practice of harvesting organs from albinos with racism and discrimination against gay people and urged consistency in how they view the sanctity of human life if they want to complain about human rights abuses.
Obama’s comments come in the midst of a weeks-long scandal in his own country over the killing of unborn children via abortion followed by the harvesting and distribution of their organs. The Center for Medical Progress has released five videos of Planned Parenthood officials discussing the killing of human fetuses and the harvesting of their organs — or entire cadavers — to researchers willing to pay a pretty penny for them.
On the topic of human organ harvesting, President Obama’s spokesman Josh Earnest has said that President Obama has chosen not to watch the video footage of Planned Parenthood officials dissecting human fetuses for parts. Nevertheless, President Obama has vehemently defended the abortion group.
In 2012, Planned Parenthood said, while announcing a $1.4 million ad buy on his behalf, that they had “no greater champion” than President Obama.
During his time in the Illinois Senate, Obama’s devotion to abortion was so extreme that he argued a form of infanticide should remain legal out of fear that protecting infants born alive might somehow protect young humans in the womb.

Thankfully, others have noticed the mind boggling double standards and gross hypocrisy on display from Obama here.
So here is one more perspective on the debacle:
Wow. Our President (and his team) really are clueless, aren’t they?
On Monday President Obama was speaking to a group of young African leaders who were attending the Young African Leaders Initiative in Washington, D.C. During his time with them someone asked about the killing of Albinos which has plagued Africa – Albinos are murdered and then have their body parts harvested to be sold for religious rites and in potions.
The questioner said it like this, “Persons with Albinism in Africa are being killed and their body parts harvested for ritual purposes. My request to you is to raise this issue with heads of state of African countries to bring these atrocities to an end.”
President Obama responded by condemning the barbaric activity.
“When I was in Africa, I said, there are important traditions and folkways that need to be respected that’s part of who each culture is — each country is — but there’s also foolish traditions and old ways of doing business.
The notion that any African would discriminate against somebody because of the color of their skin, after what black people around the world have gone through – is crazy.
It is infuriating and I have no patience for it.”
President Obama harshly condemned the grotesque and evil practice (as he should have), but obviously failed to grasp the greater truth. He has endorsed equally barbarous and much more expansive behavior here in the United States and around the world with his support of abortion. Moreover, he has thrown his full support behind exactly this practice of murdering and then selling body parts in his continued embrace of the practices undertaken by Planned Parenthood! In his response, Obama literally chastises himself for his “foolish” and “crazy” discriminatory beliefs that have led to the murders of more than 55 Million babies in America alone.
I won’t be holding my breath expecting him to see the irony in his response or the hypocrisy of his support of abortion.
