Sign Language Interpreter at Mandela Memorial a Fake

by Keith Koffler on December 11, 2013, 8:21 am

I’ve never seen anything like this. The sign language interpreter for President Obama and other world leaders at the Mandela memorial in South Africa Tuesday was a fraud. Didn’t know a word a sign language.

Check this out below. It’s all gibberish.

Here he is along with an actual sign language interpreter who was provided by the South African Broadcasting Corporation. You can see the difference.

Apparently, the man stood there for hours making up pure nonsense. I’m amazed and thankful the security was handled a little better.

And here is, proudly standing with the leader of the free world.

Aileen, Did he know at least one sign for one word? I could have stood up there waving my hands around as well. I don’t know any sign language.
If he was faking it, Wasn’t he insulting everyone who could not hear?

We might be disgusted or ashamed of MrO acting like a “frat rat” on the international stage, but we can put good money down that the American community of Black women are outraged at his behaviour.
MrObama humiliated his wife by ignoring her as he was flirting with a White woman. In public, on camera, at a memorial for a man they probably have admired. No excuse for that.

I’m no fan of Michelle Obama, but she seemed to be the only adult at this memorial. No wife should be so humiliated, no matter who she is.

In his book, ”Long Walk to Freedom,” Mandela writes that as a leading member of the African National Congress’s (ANC) executive committee, he “personally signed off” in approving these acts of terrorism :

1981 – 2 car bombs at Durban showrooms
1983 – Church Street Bomb (killed 19, wounded 217)
1984 – Durban car bomb (killed 5, wounded 27)
1985-1987 – At least 150 landmines on farm roads (killed 125)
1985 – Amanzimtoti Sanlam shopping center bomb Dec 23 (killed 2 white women and 3 white children)
1986 – Magoo’s Bar bomb (killed 3, wounded 69)
1986 – Newcastle Court bomb (wounded 24)
1987 – Johannesburg Court bomb (killed 3, wounded 10)
1987 – Wits command centre car bomb (killed 1, wounded 68)
1988 – Johannesburg video arcade (killed 1 unborn baby, wounded 10)
1988 – Roodepoort bank bomb (killed 4, wounded 18)
1988 – Pretoria Police housing unit, 2 bombs (wounded 3)
1988 – Magistrate’s Court bomb (killed 3)
1988 – Benoni Wimpy Bar bomb (killed 1, wounded 56)
1988 – Witbank shopping centre bomb (killed 2, wounded 42)
1988 – Ellis Park Rugby Stadium car bomb (killed 2, wounded 37) Late 1980s – numerous Wimpy Restaurant bombs (killed many, wounded many)

Through his silence he gave tacit approval to the slaughtering of nearly 6000 white farmers in South Africa between 1994 and present. Silence is consent. Mandela, the Ruling ANC government, and their brothers in arms, the Communist Party, are responsible for these senseless murders. They condone it, because it fits their ultimate agenda of Collectivism.

IT’S IN HIS OWN BOOK! For decades the ANC propagated this extreme hatred towards the white minority of South Africa. And Mandela, the thug, led them.

There is sign language in other countries which is not American Sign Language. There is Japanese Sign Language standardized in Japan that does not match American Sign Language. I know American Sign Language but I couldn’t go to Japan and use it. Just as American English and Japanese are completely different languages, so is ASL and JSL. This interpreter may be using African Sign Language.
