Insider Monkey recently published an article in which we can find lots of interesting facts about the least tolerant countries in the world. When Barack Obama was elected president as the 44th one of the United Sates every closet racist in America and their aunt had focal point for their rage. It all started with the election of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States. Suddenly, every closet racist in America and their aunt had a focal point for their rage, generously fueled by the various birthers and Tea Party members spouting hate and nonsense every chance they got.
The first harbinger of the fall was Brexit. The narrative was nothing new, the same old story told hundred times throughout the history, us vs them. The Polish plumbers and Romanian street cleaners were ruining Jolly Old England. People like Nick Farage and Boris Johnson promised everything they could think of, just to get Brits to vote for their scheme, boasting that as soon as they rid themselves of Brussels, everything will be as it was in the good all days.
We could continue telling the historical facts about this topic, but instead we have picked three countries from Insider Monkey’s list: Cameroon, Bahrein, and Indonesia. If you want to know more about this issue, you should check the whole article. The first country we mention now is Cameroon. It was German, then British, and later French colony. The current president is Paul Biya, who has held this position since 1982. At present the country is fighting the North, led by Boko Haram. The next country on our list is Bahrein. After a failed Arab Spring uprising, Bahrein had tightened up its security, further encroaching on personal freedoms and tolerance, but this time backed up by Saudi Arabian tanks. At last, but not least we mention Indonesia, which is the most populous Muslim country in the world and still struggles to come to terms with the 1965-66 massacres. But political opponents aren’t the only one suffering from the intolerance, as the government stepped up its persecution of sexual minorities since 2016.
