Someone on Team Barry thought this was a good idea.  A feel-good prop?




A man who appeared to provide sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela's memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Wednesday.


The unidentified man seen around the world on television next to leaders including United States President Barack Obama "was moving his hands around but there was no meaning in what he used his hands for," Bruno Druchen, the federation's national director, told The Associated Press.

Man, king of the attention whores.  It would never occur to me to do something like that.

All smoke and mirrors.  It's the true compassion of leftist regimes.  They only want to look good.


I'm not sure if I'm serious, but it sounds good.

Pomp and circumstance and all that..probably because no one actually qualifies there to do that job.. So it's all an illusion..just like the BS about how great Mandela was..he was their"great revered leader"..Zero is ours..taking "selfies" no less at the "party"

In truth the country of S.A. iis more pucked up now than it ever has been..but no one comments on that..long as they have the black Marxists who hate whites in charge.
Google farm murders South African farm murders of whites
learn what these folks are all about..genocide is genocide no matter the instigators..Their whole system is now built on lies and corruption..but no one dares criticize them..or their "annointed one" Mandela.

Did we organize this?  It doesn't seem like we did, given the location, the event, etc.  Seems more like South Africa fucked up and hired someone who wasn't qualified.

But hey, Obama's in the picture so it must be his fault.

That's a pretty silly assumption to make, considering nothing in the article even hints at the interpreter being provided by Obama, the interpreter was used by multiple politicians, and the event occurred in a foreign country.

I have no idea how the OP was able to jump to that conclusion, other than poor reading.  Especially considering this line which strongly suggests that the interpreter was provided by the ANC.

"Druchen said a fresh complaint will be filed to the ANC about the interpreter he called a "fake" with a demand for an urgent meeting."

There is an International Sign language that is similar to ASL.  That would have been the proper format, and anyone who knows ASL would be able to follow it.

Sign language has to have syntax, right?  Like.. verbs come before nouns, etc?  Do people who grow up reading languages which have non SVO syntax have their own sign language variants?
Link Posted: 12/11/2013 7:17:38 AM EDT
To be fair, there are different "sign languages" out there.

American sign language is not the world standard, it's what we use in western English speaking countries, maybe in Africa is was Swahili sign language!

So?  What's the problem?  It's not like there was any real meaning to anything Obama said.  A fake interpreter is the perfect interpreter for a POTUS who is fake about everything except his own feelings of arrogance, entitlement and superiority.
