"Shelter In Place": All Hell Breaks Loose In Haiti As Violent Mobs Try To Murder Trapped American Tourists

The US embassy in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince warned American tourists to "shelter in place" as violent demonstrations erupted across the island over a fuel price hike.

An estimated 120 Americans are believed to be staying at a Port-au-Prince hotel targeted by protesters, who attempted to bypass security and set the building ablaze. Youth groups and missionaries from an array of U.S churches are also stranded in the Caribbean nation, unable to make it safely to the airport for departure. -Fox News

The State Department notice reads: "Do not travel to the airport unless you confirmed your flight is departing," adding "Flights are cancelled today and the airport has limited food and water available. Telecommunications services, including Internet and phone lines, have been affected throughout Haiti.  It may be difficult to reach people through normal communication methods."

"We express our deepest condolences to all those affected by this event. We are closely monitoring the situation and remain in close contact with Haitian authorities to verify the welfare and whereabouts of U.S. citizens in the area." 

The Haitian government halted a planned fuel price hike on Saturday after riots broke out late last week. Haiti Prime Minister Jack Guy Lafontant had previously announced a 38% increase in gasoline, diesel and kerosine prices in order to balance the budget. 

A source on the ground in Haiti described the situation as "on fire" and only getting worse, with more major demonstrations expected Sunday in the wealthy enclave of Pétion-Ville, south-east of the capital city. -Fox News

"Government vehicles are moving to high ground, we have been told to initiate total lockdown measures immediately,” the source added. “We have to see what develops.”

Outside powers have interfered with Haiti ever since the slaves successfully overthrew their White colonial masters. I'm too lazy to look up the details (it's a pain to maintain and switch between multiple tabs on my smartphone) but I think it was early 19th C. The leaders of the rebellion then led victorious slaves in gangs that systematically raped and slaughtered every White they could find, and did the same to any Blacks sheltering them.

From memory, the French then blockaded the island on and off and demanded reparations for the colonials' losses which led to the islanders having to deforest much of the island to raise money by selling the lumber.

The US invaded in the 1920's? and has regularly overthrown governments that weren't subservient to US interests.

I'm not saying that the Haitians aren't (largely) a bunch of dumb animals, but given their history it's hard not to feel sorry for the poor fuckers.

Very few of them understand the complexities involved with modern corruption and they have always been brainwashed with simplistic solutions like "White people, all Americans and capitalism are the devil".  So its bound to happen.  They are probably also unaware that things can get worse, like when tourism comes to a full stop in a nation where nearly everyone is already poor.

The tourists raise the prices of food for everybody. When the U.S. and charities send free food to Haiti, that puts the local farmers out of business. Lot of sex tourism in Haiti. You've heard of HIV? Lots of legit reasons for Haitians to be unhappy at white faces. Plus Clintons raised $9.9 billion "for the Haitians" from  suckers and influence peddlers all over the globe. Maybe $25,000 made to Haiti, probably spent at the hotels by people who can't quite afford Epstein rates.

Missionaries and "NGO" "aid" "workers" (government paid, of course) staying at $100 a night hotels in Haiti. Petionville is where the rulers of the country live, not the peasants revolting. Like a riot in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., or where the K Street lobbyists live.

More on target than the rioters in the suburbs of Paris, where the immigrants live and shop.
