Memory Lane Monday: Gambia’s Yahya Jammeh

Rumor has it, he has a lot of scarves in his closet.Was he borrowing Obama's big stick?Our staff had such a nice time last week, going over Africa’s approach to homosexuals (the nude protest was canceled by the way, due to a lack of sunscreen) that PD decided to shine our Memory Lane Monday spotlight on Gambia’s expert on all things gay, President Yahya Jammeh.

With a name long enough to warrant repeating the first grade, Yahya Abdul-Aziz Jemus Junkung Jammeh, despite taking over Gambia in 1994 during a military coup, waited until 2008 to be, “Stricter than Iran,” on gays.

In May of that year, Jammeh vowed to decapitate any lesbians or gay men in Gambia, saying, “Sinful and immoral practices as homosexuality will not be tolerated in this country."

Taking his same behead shtick to the UN, during his now famous white address in September 2013, Jammeh said that homosexuality is, “More deadly than all natural disasters put together.”

Wow! Won’t Al Gore and his 7th charka be shocked?

Like we said before though, President Jammeh is an expert when it comes to homosexuality, explaining to the world in 2014 what LGBT actually stands for, “As far as I am concerned, LGBT can only stand for Leprosy, Gonorrhea, Bacteria and Tuberculosis; all of which are detrimental to human existence.”Say, “Tolerance!”

Hmm… Well, in case you still weren’t quite sure how he feels about homosexuality, during last year’s 49th Anniversary of Gambia’s independence from Britain, Jammeh didn’t forget to make a special address to his country’s gays, “We will fight these vermins called homosexuals or gays the same way we are fighting malaria-causing mosquitoes, if not more aggressively.”

DDT?

Ignoring that it should have been vermin without the s, Jammeh had more to say on the topic in May of that year, “Some people go to the West and claim they are gays and that their lives are at risk in the Gambia, in order for them to be granted a stay in Europe. If I catch them I will kill them.”

Doesn’t he sound like a guy you’ve absolutely got to get a photo-op with?
