Gun Owners of America president Larry Pratt recently praised “Africans from Africa” who are “happy” compared to African-Americans with their "surliness."
Pratt made his bizarre statements on the Gun Owner’s News Hour show on Jan. 4, where American Thinker writer Selwyn Duke told Pratt how the best Catholic priests were from Africa (audio below), notes RightWingWatch.org.
“Generally, the African from Africa is a very pro-American person, a very happy person,” Pratt claimed. “I know several. And they always just happy with a joke, pleasant smile on their face. And they clearly don’t identify with the surliness that’s all too frequently the attitude of their fellow African-Americans here.”
Pratt also praised Ghana because "it’s still illegal to commit an abortion, it’s illegal to be a homosexual. Very conservative social laws and very free market oriented as well.”
However, Pratt failed to mention that Ghana loses an estimated $4 billion per year to political corruption, there are calls by the people of Ghana for President John Dramani Mahama to resign and Ghana is a key narcotics trade center for drug smugglers.
Later, Pratt said, “These are folks that stand apart and hopefully they can approach some of their fellow blacks and say, ‘Hey, buddy, you got this all wrong, let me explain to you the world really works.’”
