At the next GOP debate, I suggest Sam Brownback have escaped Sudanese slave Francis Bok stand in for him.
I was captured and enslaved by Arab men. For 10 years, I was the family slave to Giema Abdullah, forced to sleep with cattle, endure daily beatings, and eat rotten food. I was fortunate to not be slaughtered, for in the end 2 million of my people died.
I came to the United States in 1999, and no one was interested in my story—not even the human rights groups. I was asked to travel to Washington D.C. and it was there that I met Sam Brownback—a man whose face showed both compassion and horror as I shared my story with him.
Sam is a modern-day abolitionist who should lead this country. He listened to me when no one else would. Sam’s respect for the dignity of all human life gave me a second chance. Today, I stand with Sam Brownback as we both try to end the massacre of my people. On May 18, I became a United States citizen, and am honored to stand with Sam Brownback at the Ames, Iowa Straw Poll on August 11. I encourage all of you to stand with us against slavery.
I wondered if Brownback’s activism in human trafficking, etc., and other non-traditional “life issues” would make him a breakout candidate. So far, not quite. And while there’s still time, to paraphrase Yogi Berra, it gets late earlier this year…
