Abandon All Fear

What nobody else seems to be saying…

[Whoops] Sir Robert Mugabe

Posted by Lex Fear on June 26, 2008

KnightriderhoodIs it just me or was anyone else blown away by the fact Adolf had a Knighthood?

“Mr Mugabe, condemned over violence ahead of a presidential run-off election, was made a Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath in 1994.

The Queen has approved a recommendation from Foreign Secretary David Miliband to strip him of the honour.”- BBC News Online (where else?)

Ok there is multiple fail here, so where do we begin?

The fact that Sir Robert Mugabe even had a knighthood suggest the whole system of knighthoods is a farce and clearly broken.

Sure the Queen has taken the knighthood away now… Well done M’am, but to have to be advised by the critter, rather than being one’s own decision, shows a disconnect with the real world.

But stripping Sir Robert Mugabe of his Knighthood now is probably the worst mistake of all! Not only is it like shutting the gate after the horse has bolted, all this will do is feed his egomania and rhetoric.

I mean, what does Sir Robert Mugabe keep telling his people?

“The Commonwealth is a mere club, but it has become like an “Animal Farm” where some members are more equal than others. How can Blair claim to regulate and direct events and still say all of us are equals?” May 2000

“We have not stopped singing to the theme of unity and the theme of love. Even the whites are free to live here. But they must change. Your kind – the British kind – are very difficult to change. We rate them as the most conceited, the most arrogant, the most selfish and the most racist in our situation.” – June 2000 BBC Interview

“We are in a war to defend our rights and the interests of our people. The British have decided to take us on through the MDC.” – February 2002 Elections

“We belong to this continent. We do not mind having and bearing sanctions banning us from Europe. We are not Europeans. We have not asked for any inch of Europe or any square inch of that territory. Blair, keep your England and let me keep my Zimbabwe.” – 2002 Earth Summit

“We cannot discuss with allies of the West. The devil is the devil and we have no idea of supping with the devil.” – February 2004

“He is arrogant – he thinks by virtue of his being white, by virtue of his being the prime minister of Great Britain, he can dictate to us.” – February 2008

I mean, does this sound like a man who sees a Knighthood as some kind of honour? Isn’t a Knighthood just a symbol of the very Western power, superiority and elitism that Sir Robert Mugabe rallies against?!

What Her Majesty has really done is relieve Sir Robert Mugabe of the burden of hypocrisy.

How would Sir Robert Mugabe gone about spewing so much rhetoric and trash-talk if our leaders and the MSM had referred to him respectfully by his proper title all along?

Would Sir Robert Mugabe have found it as easy rale against the West if we all kept referring to him as Sir Robert?

That is why, I, for one, will refer to him from now on as SIR ROBERT MUGABE, and demand as of publishing this blog post that the President of Zimbabwe has his Knighthood immediately reinstated!
