ZIMBABWE ANNOUNCES AMBITIOUS PLANS FOR A FINAL SOLUTION TO WHITE RACISM

Last Thursday, Robert Mugabe the President of Zimbabwe, announced plans for the beginning of a “Holocaust” against all whites in the country. The announcement was made at a speech attended by over 10,000 citizens and by several other African leaders and heads of state, as well as international observers. Mugabe noted that “All through history, whites have done nothing but exploit other races. Whites are an oppressive, abusive, dishonest, criminal, and evil race as they themselves admit! We have decided, therefore, to exterminate every white man, woman, and child in Zimbabwe. We will purify our Black African nation of the disease of whiteness. I will show them no mercy. I will show them a new definition of pain. I will finally deliver justice to our people!”


Detailed Analysis

Report Claims Zimbabwe Set to Exterminate White People

According to a report being shared via social media, President of Zimbabwe Robert Mugabe has announced plans to exterminate every white man, woman, and child in the country as part of a 'final solution' to white racism. The report claims that, in his speech, which was supposedly attended by 10,000 citizens and other African leaders, Mugabe promised to purify the nation of 'the disease of whiteness' thereby delivering justice to the people.

Report is Nonsense - Comes From Fake-News Blog 'Diversity Chronicle'

But, of course, the claims in the report are utter nonsense. Robert Mugabe has made no such announcement. The story is complete fiction.

It comes from the fake-news blog 'Diversity Chronicle', which specializes in publishing outlandish nonsense disguised as news. A disclaimer on the blog announces that 'original content on this blog is largely satirical' and that the author created the blog for his own personal amusement.

In fact, none of the reports published on the blog have any credibility and they should not be taken seriously.

Because the blog's fictional stories are presented as news, many people are apt to believe the information and share it with their social media friends.

Wise to Verify All Social Media 'News' Reports Before Sharing

In recent years, many more fake-news 'satirical' websites have emerged. It is thus wise to check any strange or unusual 'news' stories that come your way via social media before you share them. Searching a news portal such as Google News should quickly reveal of a story is true.
