Dear Americans, Your Hashtags Won’t #BringBackOurGirls; You Might Actually Be Making Things Worse

(She gets points for figuring out half of the psyop.)

michelle-obama-bring-back-our-girls-bonnie-says-ftrSimple question. Are you Nigerian? Do you have constitutional rights accorded to Nigerians to participate in their democratic process? If not, I have news for you. You can’t do anything about the girls missing in Nigeria. You can’t. Your insistence on urging American power, specifically American military power, to address this issue will ultimately hurt the people of Nigeria.

It heartens me that you’ve taken up the mantle of spreading “awareness” about the 200+ girls who were abducted from their school in Chibok; it heartens me that you’ve heard the cries of mothers and fathers who go yet another day without their child. It’s nice that you care.

Here’s the thing though. When you pressure Western powers, particularly the American government, to get involved in African affairs, and when you champion military intervention, you become part of a much larger problem. You become a complicit participant in a military expansionist agenda on the continent of Africa. This is not good.

Behind the Nigerian Hash-tag Trick PART 1. – The Pledge: Disappearance of the Innocents

PART 1. – The Pledge: Disappearance of the Innocents

Won’t SOMEBODY think of the OIL… oops, I mean, the CHILDREN!!!!! [screech screech screeeeeeech]

“So, do your part and tweet and Instagram the #BringBackOurGirls hashtag, demanding that the Nigerian army rescue these innocent schoolgirls and return them to their families.

HollywoodLifers, do YOU think the American government should offer more help to rescue these poor Nigerian schoolgirls? Let me know.” Bonnie Fuller

The story goes that the evil Boko Haram (being translated as “Western education is forbidden.”) walked into a school when 200 or so young girls were taking their college prep exams and scooted them out the door, into a bus, and eventually out into the jungle where they are going to be sold at auction by the dreaded evil-doers. There is even a handy video of the leader of the perps announcing this plan of his to the world so we can all be justifiably disgusted and rally around a full on invasion of his country. How convenient that this leader didn’t see that one coming. He really needs a better PR guy.

And the story went that the evil Saddam Hussein had his troops break into hospitals in Kuwait to steal the all important incubators, throwing the little babies onto the cold concrete floor like so much garbage right in front of people who they let live so they could tell the horrible story. Because?  Saddam .. loved… incubators?

You don’t need a “because” in the psyop world because you have people like Bonnie Fuller up there who only need to know that the cause is right and just and it will advance her career if she backs the right side of the incredibly stupid story. Look like an idiot, prove your loyalty, advance up the corporate ladder.

There is a hashtag “movement” of sorts where you are all invited to “stand with Michelle Obama” and various wonderful celebrities calling for military and intelligence aid to be sent to Nigeria to wage war on these savages.

The beautiful people have taken selfies with various placards announcing their solidarity with the imperialism movement. I have taken liberties to translate the actual meaning of a few.

Oh they are all so solemn. Oh they are all so serious.

Of course none of those pictured above will be sent to deep dark Africa to fight the evil-doers. Nor will their children or grandchildren for that matter. Because, you see, they are all rich and rich people don’t sacrifice their offspring on the alter of Mammon. They offer up yours instead and ask you, with a solemn stare, to do so with a glad heart. For the children, of course.

So what is really happening in Nigeria? What is this all about? 200 little girls? Something else?
