The news is out: [Congolese politicians have demanded Belgium pays the DRC reparations after the Belgian King expressed remorse for the brutal colonial occupation of the African country for the first time.
King Philippe offered his “deepest regrets” in a letter to DRC president Felix Tshisekedi on the 60th anniversary of independence on Tuesday and as the Black Lives Matter movement is forcing Belgians to examine the past.
Philippe’s great-great-great uncle Leopold II ruled a region containing the whole of the DRC as a private rubber-producing slave state. More than ten million Africans are estimated to have died in a “forgotten Holocaust”.
He was forced to surrender direct control of the Congo Free State in 1908 and Belgium formally annexed it, calling it the Belgian Congo until independence in 1960.]
Anyone asking for reparations from Belgium is an idiot who will never understand what king Leopold II of Belgium did to the negroes of the Congo. There is a limit where a crime against humanity is so repulsive, revolting, offensive, insulting, criminal, that any notion of even a payback is inadequate.
What this monster did to the Congo makes Hitler, Pol Pot, Lenin, Clinton, Obama, Mao, George Bush, Edmond Rothschild, Jacob Rothschild, Winston Churchill, John D. Rockefeller, Genghis Khan, Karl Marx, look like choir boys.
