The British Role in Nigeria

An interview with the Fascist, Lyndon LaRouche, reported in NUAfrica list, November 1995

Q: In the short time remaining I'd like your thoughts about the Nigerian situation, the Abacha government's execution of Ken Saro-Wiwa?

LYNDON LAROUCHE: Well, you have to first of all understand two things: On the local level you have to understand Nigeria. We have a lot of friends in Nigeria. And when they meet, it tends to turn into a barroom brawl. They're the most feudin'-ist bunch of people you ever saw.

Nigeria consists of the three primary religious groupings: The Ibo, Yoruba, and Hausa. And it consists also of approximately a hundred different other tribal or related groups. The British have played the ethnic game to the hilt. The British have conditioned the education of the entire political class and military class of Nigeria, with their influence. Nigeria has been part of the British Commonwealth as well as a former colony. Therefore, the British have orchestrated the situation.

The execution was done in a duplicitous manner, by the Nigerian government, in respect to the pleas of its friends, including us, not to do it. But that's Nigeria. It was done because somebody played the thing, pulled the right strings, the right hot-strings, and caused this to happen. Now many people are discomfitted by this, as I am. I'm against the death penalty anyway. But this is a tragedy, but I'm not going to support Britain, or help Britain, on this in any way. Britain is the {mass-murderer,} here.

Thank you Prof. Mbodj. Interestingly LaRouche has long had a thing about the British, the Queen as a drug dealer, etc. etc. Some analysts have suggested that to him (and a few other extreme right wingers like him), the British is a displacement of the Jews. Conspiracy theories might well make this mistake (see Martin Bernal on the 19th c. self-identification of Brits with ancient Semites).
