With the recent discussions about race and racism from regarding the Trump campaign, I felt it was important to re-iterate the criminal actions of Hillary Clinton and the American government in Libya. After several years, we have a clear picture of the chain of events that took place in the State Department, Pentagon, NATO, and Libya, thanks in no small part to the accidental revelations of the Clinton email server scandal that ended up (quite unintentionally) revealing the key role played in the decision to launch the operation by then-Secretary of Defense Clinton.

In brief, we know from the emails that Clinton’s longtime aide and press operative Sidney Blumenthal emailed her multiple times about new developments within Libya regarding a new Golden Dinar currency that Muammar al Gaddafi was developing. Backed with the accumulated wealth of the Libyan state from its nationalized oil resources as well as large stores of gold and silver, the Golden Dinar was intended as a pan-African currency that would pose a serious threat to the American dollar, the EU euro, and the French franc. In simpler terms, it was meant to be a form of money that could be used in all the countries of Africa to pay off crippling foreign debts and finance development on the continent, elevating the various countries to first-world status. It is essential here to understand that foreign debt imposed on Africa has been used as a weapon to keep the various states in abject poverty and their populations relegated to third-class citizens of the world and their respective countries.
What emerged in Libya as the US-backed rebels began to take control was simply a pogrom. Black Africans were lynched by these rebel Islamists with a viciousness and systemic nature that goes hand-in-hand with their brand of extremism, an ideology that embraces racism, homophobia, and sexism backed by American ally Saudi Arabia.
In other words, Clinton was aligning herself with the very deplorables she now pigeonholes as followers of her opponent.
