As Biden’s Administration fails Horn of Africa, Eritrean & Ethiopian Americans vow to abandon the Democrats

Biden Blinken RiceEritrean and Ethiopian Americans have actively been participating in the USA’s political arena. Based on assessment made among the active voters, it’s believed that most Eritreans and Ethiopians leaned towards supporting the Democrats’ agenda, as the party in paper, is perceived to stand for liberal society that “safeguards the rights of the population with fair, free and open society.” However, in practice; Democrats have time and again failed their members by operating contrary to what they preach on paper; and not only blundered on protecting the society here in USA, but also wasted the American people’s resources and igniting unnecessary conflicts in several regions of the world. Biden’s handling of the turmoil in Afghanistan and his inept handling of the current situation in Ethiopia is testimony to this fact.

The world had a relative respite from wars and destruction once the Obama administration was defeated and replaced by Donald trump. Particularly the Horn of Africa, a region that was hijacked by the Obama administration, was able to bring a peaceful change many longed for after 20 years of havoc. The corrupt clique & main culprit of the destruction in the region; the unelected regime in Ethiopia that was spoon-fed by individuals in the State Department and those who had destructive agenda to fulfill their exploitation then; and officially designated terrorist group now, TPLF was ousted.

The clique that committed unimaginable crimes in Ethiopia, carried out genocide in Anuak Gambella & Amhara’s region of Ethiopia, the clique that ridiculed the people of Ethiopia and announced “100% election victory”, those who literally robbed the Ethiopian resourced and attacked neighboring countries such as Somalia and Eritrea, were finally about to be brought to justice. These terrorists then hid in Tigray, the northern region of Ethiopia and not only did they refuse to surrender but also committed another unforgivable crime of insurrection and treason by attacking the Federal Army of Ethiopia. Then attacked the neighboring country Eritrea by firing several Rockets towards Asmara, the Capital City of Eritrea.

To the dismay of many and particularly Ethiopians, the Biden Government has handled the situation in Ethiopia ineptly and not only failed to condemn the atrocities by the terrorists TPLF but also started to covertly support the culprits of this historic destruction in the Horn of Africa and openly started bullying the legitimate government of Ethiopia for upholding law and order in the country. The Biden administration has also picked on Eritrea for defending its sovereignty. Therefore, Joseph Biden’s administration has lost the credibility and trust among the Eritrean and Ethiopian voters.

Based on residents contacted in many states, Eritrean and Ethiopian Americans are changing course and looking to abandon the Democrats. With this, the Biden administration is doing a disservice to the Democratic party and to those who believed in it’s political stand. Needless to say, Republicans are welcoming the new members with open arms.



  1. Two things!
    1.Ethiopian and American voters are not one issue voters.While it’s understandable that the majority in the community find Biden’s policy towards the HOA countries utterly disappointing, asking people to jump ship and vote for the Republicans, who are actively engaged in reversing all the gains made domestically in the past fifty years of hard fought struggle borders on insanity.
    When it comes to the HOA the Republicans have been eschewing the same misguided, and ultimately self-defeating policies of the Biden Administration. Let’s not forget this is the ‘America First’ contingent!
    The best advice to the Ethiopian American voters will be, Democrat or Republican to vote their conscious taking a holistic and not a narrow one issue approach.
    2. How many Ethiopian and Eritrean Americans are registered voters, and how many do actively participate in the voting process ? Going forward this ought to be our homework to make sure our voices are heard on issues that are dear to us both domestically and in our ancestral lands!
    Since self serving policy by successive US Administration is nothing new (their support of the authoritarian TPLF during its 27 years of brutal rule testifies!) let’s not get too high on emotions and make things worse in the country we live in by siding with characters who are not necessarily our friends!

  2. I think we should leave it to the professionals both of Ethiopia and USA to handle their differences on issues concerning both. Name calling and old time rhetoric will only make the job of those in charge difficult if not attainable. There are two major issues wreaking havoc on the old country.
    First civilians are dying in their hundreds and during battles thousands are killed and maimed on a going basis. Secondly, after all these deaths and destructions the two sides are not willing to talk and are hell-bent in continuing the deadly conflict full blast until one finishes off the other. Meanwhile that country is losing a good chunk of its future, the youth, either in senseless battles or migration. It is the same old story but this time on steroids. I’m sure the brain trusts around President Biden have a clue of what happened in 1976-77. I’m also confident that PM Abiy and all his advisors understand extremely well what happened to many ‘reformers and democracy mongers’ in the leadership circle of the Derg once the former Soviet Union became the ‘sword smith’ there. One by one the moderates were led to their gallows and when all was said and done the bloodthirsty wing of the Derg came on top making Mengistu the undisputed champ. He was named the ‘Center’ where everything revolves around him. What the heck, even Mars, Mercury, Venus and all their satellites were said to make a full circle around him. Then what happened after that. Ethiopia which was touted to have the potential to be the bread basket of the entire African continent ended up being unable to feed its own population where millions unnecessarily perished. Millions died in man-made civil wars. On top of that the deacons of Marx and Lenin along with the ‘Center’ Mengistu causing the deaths of hundreds of thousands of the country cream puff. My take about the then US administration’s policy snafu towards the old country was not its refusal to deliver/sell arms to the demonic Mengistu but its decision to bail out of there. I wished the Carter administration had stayed engaged which could have made the difference for the moderates in the Derg. But we all know what happened to them once Brezhnev became the benefactor. One by one they were led to their gallows including the leader, Tafari bin Benti. That could something that will await Abiy if USA completely disengages itself from that country and the two gangsters in Moscow and Beijing were given the mantle of deciding the fate of Ethiopia. Abiy is not and will never be their cup of tea. Putin will need a prefect clone and Xi will demand his. Then there goes the country, to hell and back that is!!!! Dear PM Abiy!! Wise up!!! USA is a country ruled by consensus but both Russia and PRC are not. Also don’t forget Russia and PRC are not friends to each other as they try to present themselves to you and others in a bind. Watch your back from those despots.

  3. These all sabotages have been arouse due to wrong America foreign policy on supporting militia and tyrant TPLF for the past 30 years. At this time and since he took power Biden administration has to abandon those wrong foreign policy but instead he escalating the situation by exerting his effort of supporting TPLF. This really shows how US government only working to their interest and ignoring disadvantage groups, what a mess??????????????

    Are they really concerning for humanitarian assistance and worrying about displaced people?????????? Truly speaking not!!!!!!!!!!!!! Are they worrying for ignored. disadvantaged, victimized, earnestly looking for justice, peace, democracy, fairness by those almost 110 million people and side with these people or is it better for America supporting a few elite TPLF tyrant leaders????????????? Which outweigh if truth prevails though US mission is common to all in the world.

    Such called a symbol of democracy, US playing the game????

  4. It is not a surprise that seeing day and night about US wrong foreign policy in Ethiopia and a blind support for TPLF as this mission has been drafted quite many years back on bringing TPLF to power and aggressively working to dismantle Ethiopia by their divide and rule ethnic federalism.

    Anyways it is no the time for their deviling acts, Ethiopian government also has to be smart enough on each steps that has to be done since it is an issue of all Ethiopian people except their affiliates. PM Abiy has to investigate the mission of Ethiopian Ambassadors in some countries as still there are supporters of TPLF; like, US ambassador and some other countries, they are doing behind the curtain. Watch it!!! Urgent & serious actions needed.

    Long live to Ethiopia!!

  5. Serving the truth!
    Ethiopia is a large country, one hundred and ten million population.
    Ethiopia was ruled by TPLF which is 5% of Ethiopia’s population for over 20 years.
    The 5% ruled excluding the 95%, this was not right at all.
    Non my business but wrong ideology. Actually it took long time, to be corrected, no surprise.
    Right now Ethiopia is ruled by the 95%, the TPLF is gone, believe it or not.
    There is one truth Ethiopia, province of Ethiopia Tigray, and Eritrea are brothers and sisters.
    The entire world should help this sisterly countries to peace.
    To take care of the Tigray province, other Ethiopian provinces and Eritrea.
    Every country should stay away from interference, unless Ethiopia request for help (by the legal government’s). 95%. Trump is a good leader in relationship to foreign policy.
    I am aware that there is a fear of West and European that if (Africa) or Eritrea and Ethiopia work together they will grow and this is a threat too. They do not want see united Africa in any means. For Gods’ sake let us leave these poor people who are suffering that they may stop their wars and work for the better of their people. I don’t take any side in politics but the truth. We need peace in Eritrea, Ethiopia and Tigray. We should not help our allies but the truth, if we are against the truth may be crime? God bless.
