"President Obama MADE A MISTAKE BY INVADING LIBYA"
THE SEQUEL - THESE WORDS WERE POSTED ONLY AFTER TRASHING THE "AMERICAN WHITE RIGHT WING" MOBILIZATION AGAINST OBAMA:
PART 2 OF THE INTERVIEW
HORNE: Right. Right. But having said that, I think particularly with regard to foreign policy Obama has made some significant mistakes. Those too are structural, but in part they're individual.
What I'm pointing to is the invasion of Libya, the bombing of Libya, 2011.
And the reason I say that it's partly personal: in the sense that the leading hawk in his administration, Secretary of Defense Bob Gates, as he says in his memoir, was hostile to the bombing of Libya. So that provided him with cover if he wanted to come out against it.
But it was Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; Samantha Power, now UN ambassador; Susan Rice, now who is the national security adviser, former UN ambassador; who were all gung ho. Now, you could make the argument as well that with regard to U.S. politics, given the strength of the hawks and the right, it's almost like a gang in Los Angeles, where as a condition of membership you have to shed blood in order to become a full-fledged member of the gang. And to a certain extent that's true for the U.S. ruling elite, and particularly for the women, not surprisingly--Clinton, Rice, Power--they have to show that they can be sufficiently macho.
And then there's some trepidation about Obama, since he's of partial African heritage, that is to say, whether he'll really carry the flag at the end of the day for U.S. imperialism. And so I think that that pushes him into this disastrous invasion that not only uses tax dollars in a very unwise manner, but now it's spread like a virus throughout Africa, knock-on effects negatively in neighboring Mali, leading to a UN intervention, a French intervention; knock-on effects in neighboring Niger, which then bleed into Nigeria, China (the largest GDP on the continent; now it's surpassing South Africa, a major oil producer); now bleeding into Cameroon. Ironically and paradoxically, in a sense this is all the product of the first president of African heritage.

PAUL JAY, SENIOR EDITOR, TRNN: Welcome back to The Real News Network. This is Reality Asserts Itself. I'm Paul Jay in Baltimore.
We're going to continue our series of discussions with Gerald Horne, who now joins us again in the studio. Gerald, he's published over 30 books. He's the former executive director of the National Conference of Black Lawyers. And he's written, most recently, The Counter-Revolution of 1776: Slave Resistance and the Origins of the United States of America. And in about one more segment, we're going to start focusing on that book, but seeing as we started getting into the NAACP and what happened in terms of the concession--concessions that the civil rights movement made and afterwards, we're going to pick up on that. So let's kind of jump ahead as a way to talk about the same idea.
You said not long after President Obama was elected that what's needed is to revive the tradition of radicalism in America. And then someone asked you or you commented on the tradition of liberalism, and you said, well, it wouldn't be bad if President Obama's election helped revive the tradition of liberalism. So how's that working for you?
GERALD HORNE, HISTORIAN AND AUTHOR: The resurgence and the continued growth, spectacular growth of the right-wing in the United States is both frightening and it's disheartening. As you know, there is a danger that the Republican right will take over the Senate in November, just like they control the House and control the Supreme Court and most of the federal courts. Things are not going very well.
But, fortunately, there's good news on the international scene, not least the growth of the BRICS--Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa. And we know, who studied U.S. history, that oftentimes progressive change has come from external forces, not necessarily from internal forces, for example Jim Crow. I've argued and other historians have suggested that the primary pressure not only came from black people marching, but it came from international public opinion, African liberation movements, working-class movements in Europe and in Asia. So I think that the good news, hopefully, will outweigh the bad news.
JAY: I wrote a piece in I guess it was the 2010 elections, just around the time Republicans took back the House. And I gave I think it was ten reasons how President Obama helped revive the Republican Party. And I can't remember all ten, but, I mean, one of the main ones was not indicting President Bush and Vice President Cheney for war crimes, not at least investigating. Is--his marriage or because he's so financed by Wall Street and other forces in terms of corporate Democrats, he just would not--I mean, this thing about we don't want to look backwards, we're only going to look forwards, all these things of not using that moment of such incredible weakness of the American right to bury them (instead, he engages them; he--you know, it's all about bipartisanship) and burying the whole Bush presidency and the series of crimes. And also I also thought it was a bit of a distraction in some ways, focusing on the issue of illegal renditions and torture, which of course needed to be talked about. But a war, an illegal war that may have killed a million people, he winds up defending, even though he got elected because supposedly he was against it. So, I mean, it's not that he didn't just revive a tradition of liberalism, which I agree could have been--there was a moment there of this kind of liberalism, where within the American elites there is a kind of liberal tradition of sorts, and it's better than the far right, but he didn't do that.
HORNE: I think there is a structural problem in U.S. politics which goes back--surprise, surprise--to my 1776 book. That is to say that this two-party system of which we find ourselves ensnared, you have a situation whereby the Democrats were heavily dependent upon black votes. However, I mean, as you well know, in the Deep South, nine out of ten Euro-Americans vote for the Republicans across class lines. It's an amazing cross-class coalition. I mentioned in the final pages of my 1776 book that in the pivotal and illustrative 1991 election for governor in Louisiana, 55 percent of white Americans voted for a Nazi, David Duke, a Nazi and a Klansman, for governor. So you have the structural problem whereby the Democrats find it difficult to rely upon their base because when they rely upon their base, which is black voters, it leads to the black scare--many white voters find that intimidating across class lines. And so, therefore, what happens is the Democrats oftentimes are forced to attack their base, which is what Bill Clinton did. And you don't survive very long in politics when you attack the people who elected you. It's weakening. And I don't see that as necessarily a personal flaw, although it very well may be, of Obama or Clinton. I see it as a structural problem.
JAY: Yeah, I agree. When I say Obama--it's very important to say this--I mean his administration, I mean the whole alliance of forces that brought him to power. It's not just him personally by any means.
