#mugabe quotes: from Hitler to Jesus Christ to being gay

via Robert Mugabe’s most eccentric quotes: from Hitler to Jesus Christ to being gay – The Independent Friday 21 February 2014 by Felicity Morse

It’s Robert Mugabe’s 90th birthday today. The president is hailed as a revolutionary hero by some of Zimbabwe while the West considers him a tyrant, guilty of corruption and widespread human rights abuses.

It is not surprising that a man who polarises opinion so sharply should possess a presumptuous and outlandish turn of phrase. He’s been in power for more than thirty years and is the second oldest leader in the world. His eccentricities remain as unrivalled as his control of Zimbabwe. Not only has he compared himself to Jesus Christ and to Hitler but he delivers his outrageous assertions wearing clothes that would give the most flamboyant of grandfathers a run for their money.  He’s like a satirical sketch character. Who else could get away with saying things like this?

On Britain: “Britain is a very cold, uninhabitable country with small houses.”

On gay people: “We ask, was he born out of homosexuality? We need continuity in our race, and that comes from the woman, and no to homosexuality. John and John, no; Maria and Maria, no. They are worse than dogs and pigs. I keep pigs and the male pig knows the female one.”

On gay rights: “It is not worthy of discussion. Those that engage in such acts are insane. We cannot tolerate this, otherwise the dead will rise against us.”

On Hitler: “I am still the Hitler of the time. This Hitler has only one objective: justice for his people, sovereignty for his people, recognition of the independence of his people and their rights over their resources. If that is Hitler, then let me be Hitler tenfold. Ten times, that is what we stand for.”

On white people: “The only man you can trust is a dead white man.”

On being better than Jesus: “I have died many times – that’s where I have beaten Christ. Christ died once and resurrected once.”

On cricket: “Cricket civilises people and creates good gentlemen I want everyone to play cricket in Zimbabwe; I want ours to be a nation of gentlemen.”

On Tony Blair: “Is it not obvious that Britain, under the regime of Tony Blair, has ceased to respect the Charter of the United Nations?”

On Blair’s tactics: “The UK set gay gangsters on me”

On criticism: ” Only God, who appointed me, will remove me — not the MDC, not the British. Only God will remove me!”

    He protests too much. His children should be DNA tested to see if they are really his or fathered by the legion who have banged Grace.

    From what I hear they were fathered by his brother who was chucked into the swimming pool as a result. At least they have the family genes. God help us

    “Only God, who appointed me, will remove me — not the MDC, not the British. Only God will remove me!” RGM

    “Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad.” Attributed to Euripides

    I don’t mean he is literally mad, though perhaps moribund, but he is power mad, a essential survival tactic, in his world. He is not growing old gracefully.

    “ Only God, who appointed me, will remove me — not the MDC, not the British. Only God will remove me!”

    God does not appoint people through elections. Thats total misrepresentation of the word. God appoints his people through prophets and his annointed men/women. If we vote for a person even in church its not God who appointed, people have chosen you mayb God can give you the blessing to do the job respecting his children who have chosen you, but never claim that God appointed you thats blasfemous!!!!!!!!!
