Kidnapping one person is bad enough, kidnapping almost 300 teenage girls aged 12 to 15, to be sold as sex slaves in this day and age is sheer lunacy.
Abubakar Shekau, (the bone-head in the image) Boko Haram’s self-proclaimed “leader” is quite simply bat-shit insane. This clown with the funny hat is making other terrorists look bad, even Al-Qaeda is upset!
Boko Haram are annoying, shit-disturbing lunatics, who think that they, like all terrorists, have the right to inflict their brand of hell onto innocent Nigerians, without pondering the outcome, be it good, bad or ugly. In this case… seriously fucking ugly.
Boko Haram’s translated meaning of “western education is sinful” leaves little to the imagination, but it’s not the stupid name that gets our backs up, it’s the cowardly tactics they use while pretending to be big bad asses when they are essentially hiding behind the skirts of a few hundred little girls.
Good old religion eh! Can always count on some sacred passage somewhere, in some book, telling morons like 'Shekau' (which translates into 'brainless fool') to “go forth and divide”!
Although it has taken a while for the rest of the planet to take notice of these obvious mental patients who are stealing little girls from their homes, help is beginning to filter into this part of the world because if we make enough racket about an injustice the lazy good-for-nothing powers-that-be will eventually get off their asses and do something. Supposedly.
Nigeria isn’t that unknown to the GFP and the HCC. Besides supporting the City of Eziawa in Nigeria, one of our Editorial Cartoonists Francis Odupute is in Lagos, Nigeria; and the GFP and its mother company are communication sponsors for the Cartoon Africa International Biennial (CAIB) and the Arts Voices International project.
Both of these projects are trying to promote a better Africa for all its peoples, not just for Nigerians.
Shit-for-brains, Shekau must have missed the memo. Idiot.
Unfortunately we can’t be handing out Moron Awards without including the President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan. He was busy hiding behind his wife’s skirt and didn’t bother to lift a finger until half the world showed up on his doorstep with questions about hundreds of missing girls. Huh?
It seems he missed the same memo. Well so much for thinking Goodluck had any kind of a backbone. Goodluck with that. (I just had to get one pun in here.)
So… anytime someone out there would like to help the Boko Haram move to another planet or another galaxy, feel free, the rest of us won’t mind, and the girls can go home, and we can get back to wondering when Russia is going to drop a nuke on someone.
Africa… the beginning of the human journey - is always our last frontier.
