Marc Lamont Hill: “I would rather Trump be president”

Journalist and author, Dr. Marc Lamont Hill gave an interview to Power 105.1 FM’s The Breakfast Club on August 3, 2016 to discuss current events, most notably the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Hill, who is also a professor at Morehouse University and a political commentator for CNN, gave his views on both Democratic and Republican national conventions, both of which he attended.

He stated that Democrats sounded more like Republicans than ever, and pointed out the patriotic tone of the Democrats and how they constantly proclaimed the U.S. as the greatest place in the world.

Hill also referred to the republican’s national convention as a “klan rally.”

He went on to say that the reason it was so easy for Melania Trump to plagiarize U.S. first lady Michelle Obama’s speech is because both parties are essentially saying the same thing.

The most interesting thing that came out of Hill’s mouth, however, was his analysis of a Donald Trump presidency.

Hill echoed what the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP) has repeatedly stated during the entire election season when he said that Democrats are using the possibility of Donald Trump winning the election as a way to scare black voters into voting for Hillary Clinton. 

Marc Lamont Hill told the show “I would rather have Trump to be president for four years and build a real left wing movement that get us what we deserve as a people than to let Hillary be president and we stay locked in the same space.”

When asked if he feared that the U.S. would experience the crisis that Turkey is seeing where the people have revolted against their government, he replied “I think that’s what we need. I think we need a revolution. You don’t get a revolution when people are comfortable.”

Hill, like many other Africans, is starting to understand that revolution is needed to end our oppression.

He still doesn’t realize, however, that left wing movements operate under imperialism and the white power structure and that African Internationalism is the only political ideology that will save us.

Left, right, liberal and conservative are all fractions of the white ruling class competing for power. African Internationalism is neither left nor right wing––it centers the African working class.

African Internationalism is the theory of the African working class. African Internationalism outlines that African impoverishment and European wealth are due to European enslavement, plunder, exploitation and genocide of Africa.

The scientific theory clearly outlines that reparations are due to Africa and African people and is firm that the U.S. and Europe must withdraw from Africa.

The erasure of colonial borders and the unification of all Africans as one people under the leadership of the African working class is what African Internationalism stands for.

Deepening the crisis

It is clear to the African People’s Socialist Party that imperialism is in crisis. The Party’s Chairman, Omali Yeshitela, has said numerous times that anything that deepens the crisis of imperialism is good for the Revolution.

This is essentially what Marc Lamont Hill was attempting to articulate when he stated “you don’t get a revolution when people are comfortable.”

U.S. president Obama and his regime took power at a time when African people were fed up with the war mongering and fraudulent U.S. government.

A black face in the white house was enough to pacify much of the African population. Obama’s reign was nothing but eight years of more U.S. imperialism in Africa and worldwide African oppression and genocide.

The cover has been blown and now more and more Africans are declaring distrust in Barack Obama, the U.S. government and its two major political parties.

The election of Barack Obama was an attempt by the white ruling class to hold off the inevitable uprising of the African working class.

The white ruling class is now trying a new tactic, they are trying to scare Africans into supporting presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

A Trump presidency will certainly make it clearer for Africans to see that self-determination is what we need as a people. It will be harder for Africans to maintain any sense of allegiance or patriotism to a country ran by Donald Trump.

Hillary Clinton has the ability to provide the lies and trickery needed to keep masses of African people asleep to the true path which imperialism is on. Donald Trump, however, is incapable of doing such.

Join the APSP!

Down with the Democratic and Republican parties!

We are winning!
