Genocide level raised again for Afrikaner-farmers, to stage 6
August 14, 2012
Why are Afrikaner farmers being murdered in South Africa?
by Leon Parkin & Gregory H. Stanton, President – Genocide Watch
14 August 2012
The following report is the result of an intensive personal inquiry in South Africa conducted July 23 -27, 2012.
Deliberate inaction of the South African Government has weakened rural security structures, facilitating Afrikaner farm murders, in order to terrorize white farmers into vacating their farms, advancing the ANC/S. A. Communist Party’s New Democratic Revolution (NDR.)
The South African Government for the last 18 years has adopted a policy of deliberate government abolition and disarmament of rural Commandos run by farmers themselves for their own self-defense. The policy has resulted in a four-fold increase in the murder rate of Afrikaner commercial farmers. This policy is aimed at forced displacement through terror. It advances the goals of the South African Communist Party’s New Democratic Revolution (NPR), which aims at nationalization of all private farmland, mines, and industry in South Africa. Disarmament, coupled with Government removal of security structures to protect the White victim group, follows public dehumanization of the victims, and facilitates their forced displacement and gradual genocide.
Afrikaner farm owners are being murdered at a rate four times the murder rate of other South Africans, including Black farm owners. Their families are also subjected to extremely high crime rates, including murder, rape, mutilation and torture of the victims. South African police fail to investigate or solve many of these murders, which are carried out by organized gangs, often armed with weapons that police have previously confiscated. The racial character of the killing is covered up by a SA government order prohibiting police from reporting murders by race. Instead the crisis is denied and the murders are dismissed as ordinary crime, ignoring the frequent mutilation of the victims’ bodies, a sure sign that these are hate crimes.
However, independent researchers have compiled accurate statistics demonstrating convincingly that murders among White farm owners occur at a rate of 97 per 100,000 per year, compared to 31 per 100,000 per year in the entire South African population, making the murder rate of White SA farmers one of the highest murder rates in the world.
Incitement to genocide is a crime under the International Convention for the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, to which South Africa is a state-party.
The ANC government has promoted hate speech that constitutes “incitement to genocide.” The President of the ANC Youth League, Julius Malema, revived the “Kill the Boer, Kill the Farmer” hate song at ANC rallies, until it was declared to be hate speech by a South African judge, and Malema was enjoined from singing it. For other reasons, Malema was later removed as ANCYL President. His followers continue to sing the hate song, and the Deputy President of the ANCYL has called for “war,” against “white settlers.”
After the judge’s injunction to halt singing of the hate song, even the President of South Africa, ANC leader Jacob Zuma, himself, began to sing the “Shoot the Boer” song. Since Zuma began to sing the hate song on 12 January 2012, murders of White farmers increased every month through April 2012, the last month for which there are confirmed figures.
There is thus strong circumstantial evidence of government support for the campaign of forced displacement and atrocities against White farmers and their families. There is direct evidence of SA government incitement to genocide.
Forced displacement from their farms has inflicted on the Afrikaner ethnic group conditions of life calculated to bring about its complete or partial physical destruction, an act of genocide also prohibited by the Genocide Convention.
High-ranking ANC government officials who continuously refer to Whites as “settlers” and “colonialists of a special type” are using racial epithets in a campaign of state-sponsored dehumanization of the White population as a whole. They sanction gang-organized hate crimes against Whites, with the goal of terrorizing Whites through fear of genocidal annihilation.
What is dehumanization?
The process of dehumanization has the effect of numbing and decommissioning the moral sentiments of the perpetrator group. Polarization creates the “us vs. them” mentality, in SA the “Indigenous Black People” group versus the “White Settler Colonialist” group.
ANC leaders publicly incite followers using racial epithets. By dehumanizing the White victim group, members of the perpetrator group exclude the victim group from their circle of moral obligation not to kill its members. Dehumanization is the systematic, organized strategy of leaders to remove the inherent natural human restraints of people not to murder, rape, or torture other human beings. Taking the life of a dehumanized person becomes of no greater consequence than crushing an insect, slaughtering an animal, or killing a pest.
The ANC denies its genocidal intentions. But the South African Communist Party is more open about its plan to drive Whites out of South Africa. Gugile Nkwinti, South Africa’s Minister of Rural Development and Land Reform has declared that all “colonial struggles are about two things: ‘repossession of the land and the centrality of the indigenous population.’” Mister Nkwinti is confirming the goals of the South African Communist Party’s New Democratic Revolution (NDR) and stating that the colonial struggle is not yet over in post-1994 South Africa. He is saying that Whites are unwelcome “settler colonialists” with no role to play in South Africa’s future.
The Transvaal Agricultural Union, Freedom Front, Democratic Alliance, IFP, Afriforum and numerous other organizations have on a regular basis called for the South African Government to declare farm murders and rural policing a South African government priority. The President, who should be the guardian of the constitutional rights of all the people, has deliberately ignored these calls for action.
Former President F. W. De Klerk, on 25 July 2012 during the De Klerk Foundation’s Crossroads conference correctly accused the current generation of ANC leaders of cynically manipulating racial sensitivities for political ends. In our analysis, the current ANC leadership also publicly uses incitement to genocide with the long-term goal of forcibly driving out or annihilating the White population from South Africa.
This report has explained the rationale for the deliberate inaction of South African government functionaries to prevent, prosecute, or stop the murders of Afrikaner farmers. As a group, Afrikaner farmers stand in the way of the South African Communist Party’s goal to implement their Marxist/Leninist/Stalinist New Democratic Revolution and specifically the confiscation of all rural land belonging to White Afrikaner farmers.
Genocide Watch is moving South Africa back to Stage 6, the Preparation stage in the genocidal process.

‘Kill 30 blacks for every white murdered’
PHILLIP DE WET - Mar 21 2012 20:02
That, Visagie said, was the general consensus of the 100 or so people who gathered in Bloemfontein for a “nood volksvergadering”, or emergency meeting of the nation, which he had called to address the issue of farm murders, and the killing of white people in urban areas.
“People said the murders of more white people would be a declaration of war. They also said changing the Constitution to restrict press freedom and remove property rights would also be a declaration. They don’t want politics anymore. They don’t want to use legal avenues. Afriforum pushed the government into a corner through the courts, but the government can just change the law. They want revenge.”
Visagie, the leader of the Afrikaaner Weerstandsbeweging (AWB) for a short period after the murder of Eugene Terre’Blanche, is perhaps best known for the “don’t touch me on my studio” incident that followed. He is also the leader of the Geloftevolk Republikeine, (Covenant People Republicans) which considers itself the last over-arching body where many hundreds of militant and far-right groups can hold discussions — and even he is worried about what he heard from his audience.
“Some people came from very far, from all over the country,” he said about the short-notice meeting. “That may mean that we had a more radical element here.” Whether the group was representative of broader feeling or not, however, it represents an unequivocal threat of race-based murder, and Visagie said he does not know how to deal with that.
“At this point I’m sitting with my head in my hands. If there is a wave of murders of white people by black people now, then I guarantee you there is no way we could stop the violence that would follow. We need another outlet, some way to put people at their ease so they will be more tolerant.”
One avenue — albeit one that would likely make the police more than a little nervous — would be marches, intended to show just how frustrated (and close to violence) some Afrikaans-speaking white people are. But because white people who associate themselves with the far-right cause would be victimised, Visagie said, his group is obtaining legal opinion on whether participating in marches while wearing balaclavas would be legal. He admits such gatherings could be dangerously explosive, but said there are worse things.
“What I’d worry about is that people wouldn’t come to such protests, but would go in small groups and wreak their own vengeance. That’s what worries me.”
The Geloftevolk Republikeine, which take their name from a vow Voortrekkers made to God in return for protection from a Zulu attack, is due to discuss the outcome of the meeting at a top management meeting of its own on the weekend. The group has lodged hate-speech complaints with the South African Human Rights Commission, saying President Jacob Zuma’s singing of the infamous “kill the boer” amounts to inciting murder. It is also concerned about what it describes as a “private ANC army”, and is agitating for a sunset clause for black economic empowerment in employment.
The South African Police Service recently said it kept a close eye on right-wing groups that could be capable of violence.
However, academics and other analysts have largely discontinued monitoring the far right, because it has not been considered a true threat to national security or stability for some time.
Human Rights Day: South Africa (March 21, 2012)
Reflecting on the injustices in a racist society
By J. Mare
21 March 2012
Today South Africa is commemorating Human Rights Day.
The ANC government, in their failed endeavor to promote human rights seems, not have made a difference since they came to power in 1994. On the eve of Human Rights day the country was ablaze with service delivery protests that even escalated in one area, into a full-out race war.
The links to stories about the ANC failure to live up to their promises of a ‘ Better life for all’ that erupted into violence can be found at the end of this story (Source URL’s).
While the black population protests violently against the ANC’s inability to govern, Afrikaners are also silently suffering as a result of the very same issues their black brothers are protesting about. The difference however, is that these Afrikaners don’t have a voice. Whereas the ‘black masses’ can boldly proclaim victim-hood, the Afrikaner community is seen as the culprit -, the reason for -, and the instigators of -, black suffering.
Bizarre logic influencing black perceptions
There’s a a bizarre logic at work influencing black perception.
While blacks voted the government of the day into power, subconsciously and very overtly, they still blame whites for their misgivings. One finds manifestation of this ‘failed thinking’ in the racist diatribe published on ‘Africanist’ or ‘African Nationalist’ pages like the PAC (Pan African Congress), ANCYL (ANC youth League) and even the governing party’s own social network page – from time to time.
But nowhere does it come more clearly to the fore, than in the black news publication, The Sowetan. This type of reasoning usually follows controversial articles and culminates in the most vile ‘anti-white’ racism by blacks in the commentary section afterward.
It is not unfair so conclude that the black youth is at a ideological crossroads. Will they allow the perception of ‘past injustices’, erroneously lead them on a path of genocide against whites and lately, even the coloured communities – or, will the realization dawn that the party they voted into power – is to blame for everybody’s misery?
It is not likely that the masses will choose to reject their own.
Why? Because nowhere is there a voice of dissent to be found, against the governing party’s unjust policies.
Nowhere will you find exceptions to the rule that ‘Africanization’ or ‘indigenization’ of everything, from the private to the public sector – should stop. Nowhere will you find a voice of dissent against the extreme poverty created by ANC policies in the white community. Nowhere will you see protests against racist Affirmative Action and other racist ‘job reservation’ legislation strangling the Afrikaner population to death. Not even the official opposition can afford, to dare to come out in defense of this community, for fear of loosing the precious few black voters they’ve managed to convince to vote for them, thus far.
But this is not the story of political rivalry or angry youths at the crossroads. This is the story of a small very visible and increasingly beleaguered community that has been demonized to such an extent, that even the mental exercise (of trying to afford human right to these people), leads to cognitive incongruence for most people in the global village.
The effect on the Afrikaner community
The Afrikaner Journal has published 89 posts thus far, since its inception in 2010 to highlight the adverse effect “Africanization’ or ‘African Nationalization’ has had on my people. Most of the articles deal with the abject poverty experienced by this community as a result of ‘job reservation’.
Most youngsters have already left the country of their birth in search of a better life – where ANC racism can’t get to them, but for the aging community left behind, there’s only a bleak future of poverty in the land they once helped to make the greatest and wealthiest in Africa.
It is indeed a tragedy of epic proportions that looks (at this stage), as though it will culminate in the destruction of the entire South African society as we have known it to exist, for centuries. Cultures and languages are slowly eradicated and replaced by a single globalized identity enforced upon the South African populace by this ‘marxist-communist’ regime.
Meet Sue Appelgrein. Sue is a living example of the degeneration of living conditions experienced by Afrikaners.
Sue is the only white person living in the village of Ngcolosi, outside Hillcrest in KZN province, SA. She lives here at the mercy of the black residents of the village, who agreed that she could live there among them. This is a situation that can change at the drop of a hat however, and Sue may find herself homeless again should she fall out of favor with the villagers.
Sue grows vegetables and teaches the villagers how to sew for a living. She says she takes a taxi to collect her pension at the pension pay point.
Sue lost both her husband and her son. They died some years ago.
She says she’s been living in this village for the last seven years.According to her, the family moved there when their business failed, and with nowhere else to go, was forced to take up residence here.
Sue is a 68 year old pensioner.
She says she doesn’t consider herself to be a ‘mlungu’ – white person (privileged), anymore.
Many elderly Afrikaners find themselves at the mercy of others. Many don’t have food to eat, because the pension offered by the regime is way beyond inadequate and are the cause of many, slowly starving to death.
The amount changes every year. It is currently, since April 2011, R1140.00 ( app. 160$ Am, 114 Euro) per month, per person. If you are older than 75 years, it is R1160.00 per person per month. Source:State Pension
Sometimes, these meager pensions feeds several family members and it’s not uncommon to hear stories of the destitute surviving on canned pet food.

‘Blikkiesdorp’ (Krugersdorp, South Africa)
A portrait of misery and hope – Introduction:
18 March 2012
The Look Local website reported on March 2nd, 2011 that residents of Appel Park in Krugersdorp were overjoyed when they were given houses by the ANC city council (29 February 2011).
Executive mayor, Koketso Calvin Seerane pointed out that members of the Mogale City council, are ‘people of their word’.
The following is the original publication that brought the problem of housing for the marginalized Afrikaner community in Krugersdorp, to my attention – I quote it here in full:
Some residents of Appel Park were overjoyed when they were given their houses on 29 February from the Mogale City Municipality.
02 March 2012 | Chemélle Barnard
The Mogale City Local Municipality has handed over more homes to deserving residents of Appel Park.
The Burgershoop Community Hall was filled with emotions on the morning of 29 February.
Executive Mayor, Koketso Calvin Seerane pointed out that members of the Mogale City Council are people of their word.
“We have made a commitment to give ownership of the houses to the residents, and we are here to do exactly that. Poverty does not only exist in the townships, but also in the suburbs,” said the Mayor.
He mentioned that they are aware of poverty and that they aim to make Mogale City a better place for all.
“We have already handed over 66 houses, and 101 must still be handed over.”
Jakkie Naudé, Ward Councillor for Ward 20 says that he believes that there are only 100 houses to be handed over because one has burnt down and has not been repaired. Residents stood waiting anxiously for news of who would be receiving the deeds to their houses.
“We are excited about what is to come and hope we will receive good news today,” said resident Erika van Loggerenberg.
“We are so proud of Oom Jakkie and hope it is our turn for homes,” said Koekie du Toit.
The Mayor also spoke to the people about their future as homeowners.
“Maintenance of these properties now goes from the municipality’s hands into the hands of the new owners.” The Mayor added, “It does not mean that if you didn’t get your house today, we have forgotten about you. Unfortunately procedures take some time, but everyone will get their homes.”
There were tears of joy and relief as residents signed their ownership documents and headed back to their own homes.
VISITING BLIKKIESDORP – 10 March 2012
by J. Mare
I visited ‘Blikkiesdorp’ in Krugersdorp yesterday.
Krugerdorp is situated to the west of Johannesburg and it is now called Mogale city.
‘Blikkiesdorp’ is the unofficial name for the suburbs Appelpark and Burgershoop and should not be confused with the other Blikkiesdorp in Cape Town’s township of Delft.
According to one resident, most of the residents are Afrikaners. About 90% of these people are unemployed . The majority of them are surviving on a meager state pension.
Those who have children (or look after children) do so, with the ‘help’ of an additional child support grant. Many are also surviving on a pension for the medically unfit.
This, is what is keeping these people alive.
Afrikaner poverty caused by ANC policies
Why this growing misery?
The ANC has very successfully barred whites from the job market with their racist job reservation legislation – based on the American concept of Affirmative Action.
The reality of the abject poverty these people are subjected to, is clear where-ever you turn your gaze. Dilapidation is the order of the day and many Afrikaners receive food aid from feeding schemes set up by donors.
They do not receive any other help from the government and cannot look forward to any change in policy – because of the colour of their skin.
The houses they live in belong to the municipality and some of the residents have been paying rent to the council for thirty-two years. The Mogale city council is now in the process of transferring the burden (of the upkeep and maintenance of the houses) to the lessee’s – by transferring ownership of the property into their names.
Residents will now be left with the impossible task of trying stop the dilapidation of the houses given to them, with the little money they get from the state – which obviously isn’t even enough for the basics of life.
The degeneration resembles a picture of suburban decay, unpainted roofs, and (according to the above quote) one house has even burnt down. Just like in Pretoria and other cities and towns – backyard shacks have been erected in order to accommodate the growing number of destitute
The council sincerity is in question
Has the municipal council failed in their obligation to uphold and maintain the houses they have been renting to the residents of ‘Blikkiesdorp’?
Are they transferring ownership to these unsuspecting victims because they want to get rid of the problem?
How long will it take before these Afrikaners will be forced to abandon these structures once it has become too unsafe for human occupation – or before the very same ANC council forces them from their property because:
- they either cannot pay their rates and taxes or,
- they have to demolish the houses due to council regulations for safety?
It seems as though the ANC has planned this so-called generosity very carefully, to milk it for all the PR they can get from it. It looks like they’re planning to try and get rid of these ‘problem houses’ and to sidestep responsibility at the same time for their ‘inaction’ to maintain the safety of the property they’ve been renting to people.
Be it as it may – the transfer of ownership of the houses will go ahead and nobody seem to want to question the motives of the council or the reason for their supposed generosity.
The injustice, continues….
I will be following up on this story in the coming weeks and hope to be able to answer these questions as well as other pressing issues related to the housing crisis that Afrikaners face.
I will also bring you feedback from the politicians who are allowing this to happen.
We will also be meeting the people of Blikkiesdorp. I’ll publish interviews with them (their story, in their own words).
Watch this space.

CALIFORNIA, USA – 28 February 2012
By J. Mare
A peacefull march by Project SA (protesting the vicious murders Afrikaners by ANC thugs in SA) was violently interrupted by supporters of the ‘Occupy’ movement.
In the scuffle that followed two police officers were injured and taken for treatment.
The words “fucking, Nazi’s” can be heard above the noise during the commotion. It is sad to see and hear, how Americans have been brainwashed to believe that any resistance by white people to be racist – irrespective of the reality of the suffering the victims are subjected to.
Since the end of Apartheid, in excess of 3500 Afrikaans speaking farmers and a further estimated 40 000 urban Afrikaners have been slaughtered by thugs adhering to the ANC’s call to ‘kill the Boer’.
Recently the ‘Geloftevolk’ group has laid formal charges at the South African Human Rights commission against Jacob Zuma (president of the ANC), for inciting violence by means of ‘hate speech’-songs against this beleagered community.

The Afrikaner Journal (facebook page)
Pretoria, South Africa,
06 February 2012:
Helen Zille wrote today in the Cape Times that White and Black victims are in denial.
Miss Zille argues that both races should learn from the late Steve Biko who advocated a change of attitude or perception about their humanity in order to free their minds and truly become South Africans.
She quotes Biko who proposed that whites should be ‘made to realize’ that they are not superior, but human and blacks should be made to realize they’re human not inferior. Biko, she says, wanted people to free their minds …”wage a struggle inside their heads. They had to stop seeing themselves as victor or victim and start believing in their own and other peoples’ value and legitimacy as equal human beings”.
“Only when people have freed their minds will they be able to change their own circumstances…. Human beings (blacks in that context) are not merely passive victims…they can choose to become agents of development and progress in the environment.”
From the above miss Zille decides that many white South Africans (note how she refuses attach an identity to the current victims) see themselves as victims. She says that victimhood gives them a ‘sense of identity’ and ‘entitlement’ – allows them to disengage from the ‘project of nation building’ and justifies the ‘creating of a comfort zone with other victims in which to reinforce a sense of ‘grievance’ through constant complain.
Furthermore, she labels these people as ‘professional whites’ – a term she’s proudly coined to justify her demonization of Afrikaners and Whites in general.
I’d like to respond to Miss Zilles’ tirade with the following: It is clear that she’s noted the recent developments in Europe with scorn and maybe a sense of trepidation. She must’ve seen the response and heard what was being said about the hideous murders of the farmers and the slaughter of urban Afrikaner at the conference held at the European Parliament to discuss these very issues, she (Zille) don’t seem to be able to address on behalf of the very electorate that had entrusted her with their needs.
She implies that Afrikaners (yes, miss Zille, that is who we are – we are Boere Afrikaners) are still deluded by the idea that they are superior to other South Africans – a suggestion that is not only far-fetched, but in the current circumstances, way beyond ridiculous.
She also implies that we shouldn’t see ourselves as victims (as if we need her permission) and even if we do qualify as victims, it is our own responsibility to overcome our own adverse circumstances.
In response to that piece of advice just this: We wouldn’t have needed to plead for help from foreigners if you’d done your job, lady – if you’d taken up the torch on behalf of us, and fought for our rights. Yes, our human rights, miss Zille the very same human rights afforded to all South Africans, but it has become clear that the only rights you are interested in fighting for, are those of those voters that can put you in power, namely the black vote.
We’ve realized, quite some time ago that you fancy yourself the Morgan Changerai of South Africa. You aspire to be more than just the queen of Cape Town. Well miss Zille, thank you for showing us who you really are. For your information the ‘project of nation building’ that you’re referring to is doomed to fail, because we don’t have to built nothing of the sorts – South Africa already consist of many nations.
This fact, you and your fellow ambitious project-builders conveniently overlook in your zeal to combine a fragile ‘majority of money’ that can put you into power. Furthermore we take exception to your sarcastic reference of our victimhood. We are dying – no thanks to you. We are losing our lives, sometimes on a daily basis.
We are losing the right to have our children educated in their own mother-tongue. The government is actively running a racist quota system to prevent our children from attending university. We are getting marginalized and impoverished with every piece of racist legislation promulgated by this Marxist ANC regime. We cannot find employment because we don’t qualify for the same human right (equal access to employment opportunities) that your black voters qualify for – all of this while you are watching and doing jack shit.
Don’t tell me I cannot claim to be a victim, don’t you dare! You have been right about one thing though, miss Zille, and that is that we’ve been suffering from the ‘psyche of victimhood’ for too long. We’ve allowed you to keep us there – because we trusted you. For a long time we couldn’t understand why our condition kept worsening – and now we know.
You’ve been keeping us docile and pacified us with your empty promises and lately, your silence on issues of life and death to this community, is speaking for itself. You should’ve been in Belgium, you should’ve fought the good fight, but alas – you didn’t bother.
Well, the honeymoon is over.
Now that we’ve discovered that part of the reason for our victimhood, is due to your inability and blatant disregard for our rights and needs, we are taking back our future out of your hands. We don’t need you Zille….Why we ever thought that we needed you for anything in the first place, I’ll never know but, I can assure you, we are done with you.
‘A better life for all’ will have to wait……
By: Max Du Preez
10 January 2012
The proudest, oldest liberation movement in Africa’s history. The movement that played a key role in isolating the apartheid regime and forcing them to the negotiating table through immense internal pressure. A movement that brought us two Nobel Peace laureates. A “beacon for the world”, in the words of British Prime Minister David Cameron.
This is all true. Would it then not follow that the ANC’s celebration of its founding day a century ago would be a momentous, joyous and historic occasion of great proportions?
It wasn’t. Not at all.
The man called the leader of the next generation of ANC leaders, Julius Malema, used the occasion to whip up emotions against the present leadership and against white South Africans. Some of the core ceremonies were for the privileged few only; the ordinary supporters simply having to jump out of the way for the one high-speed blue light brigade after the other. At the climax of the festivities, President Jacob Zuma haltingly read from a boring speech and by the time he was done, most people had left the stadium.
Just about the most memorable moment was when deputy president Kgalema Mothlanthe, surrounded by the ANC bigwigs with glasses of champagne in hand, proposed a toast “to ANC unity” and told the ordinary faithful that if they did not have champagne, they could take photographs of their leaders drinking, or raise clenched fists. “The leaders will now enjoy the champagne, and of course they do so on your behalf through their lips,” he said. As they have been doing for quite a while now.
Perhaps it would now finally dawn on those who still didn’t realise it that the ANC has stopped being a liberation movement and has become just an ordinary political party depending on history and ethnicity to stay in power. They did not, after all, learn from the mistakes other liberation movements in the region made after they took power.
I believe historians would one day point to the last five years or so of ANC rule and call it a shame and a tragedy. South Africa’s project to cement in a democratic culture and work towards an equitable society and a developmental state got stuck in the sand of faction battles, self-enrichment, corruption, nepotism and laissez-faire governance.
Since the Polokwane putsch four years ago, the ANC has increasingly targeted freedom of speech and launched an assault on the independence of the judiciary instead of broadening our democracy. Despite well-intentioned programmes to build houses for the poor and to supply water, electricity and sewerage systems to the millions who did not have it, the ANC has made no noticeable dent in the overwhelming poverty of the townships, squatter camps and rural areas and our education system remains one of the weakest in Africa.
There was a lot of angry talk and threats on social media this past weekend of ANC supporters blaming whites for the continued poverty and lack of development, some saying the settlement of 1994 was a mistake and the ANC leadership (read: Nelson Mandela) should never have “forgiven” whites for the evils of colonialism and apartheid.
I have no illusions of the enormous damage colonialism and apartheid had done to our society and that its after-effects can still be seen all around us. But this form of black anger is fast becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy; a doctrine all by itself. Isn’t it time that this anger be channeled to fuel the fires of a zealous project to turn this country into the winning project the world thought it was going to be after 1994?
Shouldn’t these angry people now turn to the politicians who spend hundreds of millions on their own luxurious lifestyles and allowed most of our local governments and much of our provincial governments to collapse? Shouldn’t we all be very angry about the way a whole generation of youngsters had their education messed up?
Those who spew venom at whites eighteen years after our liberation should go back and read what our great visionaries had written about freedom, democracy, development and “the national question”: Robert Sobukwe, Steve Biko, Oliver Tambo, Joe Slovo, Nelson Mandela and others. You don’t have to forgive and forget, but don’t let your hatred retard the growth and development of the people of South Africa.
Malema, hero to many of these bitter people, has previously said he wouldn’t rest until whites were “as poor as blacks”. Now he says he wants to see white domestic workers. I get the underlying emotion, the desire to punish. But wouldn’t it be much better if he fought for blacks to be “as rich as whites” and for all women to get meaningful, well-paid employment?
Zuma said some really good things in his centenary speech. But we only know one thing for sure: 2012 will be dominated by more power struggles in the ANC as it prepares for its elective conference in December. I suppose “a better life for all” will have to wait until next year.
ANC centenary celebrations in retrospect
By: Johan PB Prinsloo
10 January 2012
The centenary celebrations of the ANC must be viewed for what it is, the trigger for much worse to come. Reading what Julius Malema has been saying over the past few days is most disconcerting to say the least. He is being ignored by most, just as was the case a year or two ago, when he was regarded as just a stupid kid. Now he is being disregarded, because he was dispelled from the ANCYL.
White South Africans truly are stupid themselves. He is busy stirring the pot like never before with statements like :
“Domestic workers get raped in the bedrooms of the baas & the madam. They’re silent because they’ll loose their job.”
“We don’t want to drive whites into the sea. In 10 years we want white domestic workers.”
He is urging the maids to rise up to their white employers and suggesting that in ten years from now the white women may be raped by their black employers.”
He is urging blacks to take up arms against the whites with statements like
“Mandela said letters to the Queen doesn’t help. Take up the weapon. Ideas Is not gonna bring economic freedom.”
This is blatant hate speech and he is openly urging blacks to take up arms against the whites. He is breeding hatred against whites by playing on the emotions of the ignorant black masses suggesting the the black maids are suffering at the hands of their white masters, being raped and silenced.
In so doing he is, like the white liberal dogs, warranting the rape and murder of whites. Has anyone silenced him about these statements? Has any church in this country said anything about it? Has any spineless appeasing human rights activist said anything about it? Even if Afriforum was to take him to court afterwards for having said it, would it make any difference to those masses of ignorant uneducated blacks who took it to heart?
The Rev. Kemo Waters said on Twitter on the morning of January 07, 2012 -
“For the life me I never could understood why Malema’s rhetoric found a home in many hearts… Till I moved to the racist Cape Town…”, “It’s sad that the only time a black man is taken seriously is when he calls for blood… Racism isn’t important till the victim gets mad”
and then just a few minutes later he said
“Just like Malcolm X, I do not advocate for killing. However, freedom from racism should be prioritized and sought ‘by any means necessary’”
So what is he saying other than that killing is the only way?
I said in December 2010 that by June 2012 year people would be shooting at each other in the streets of the New South Africa, and lately I have been doubting my own interpretation of the future, based on what I knew then, versus what I know now, but statements made at events like the ANC Centenary strengthen my conviction that if things continue along these lines, blood is going to flow very soon in this god-forsaken white liberal sold out wasteland called the New SA.
I am finding it difficult to convey to white South Africans my fears about the dangers that lie ahead, because I’m often accused, even by the right-wing volkstaters, that I’m a prophet of doom, but so be it. As long as I can reach only a few I’ll be satisfied, I do not care for volkstaters anyway, because they do not care for anyone but themselves.
As for the rest of us, we need to take stock and we need to be awake, aware, and alert. Malema, Sexwale, white liberal trash and others have been manipulating people’s perceptions of the past to control their thinking and drive it in a direction they want.
ALWAYS REMEMBER that a white liberal is the same as any black radical, because they will always warrant the actions of the black radical in the name of so-called freedom and liberation.
Malema is manipulating the perceptions of blacks, by painting a picture in their minds that black maids are being raped on a daily basis by their white employers, that whites have been stealing from the blacks, that talking is not good enough and that blacks should take up arms against the whites.
Sexwale has been manipulating the minds of blacks by telling them that the white farmers have been driving the blacks from the farms and that is the reason we now have almost 3000 squatter camps in the country.
Slowly but surely they have been building a case to hate whites to the extreme.
There is now a million times more racial friction in this country than at any time in history, thanks to liberals, appeasers, the Malemas and Sexwales and others, deliberately instilling hatred in the hearts of the black masses. They want war, they want mass genocide against the whites, and it will happen, fortunately even the white liberals will experience it first hand.
They are also manipulating the white right-wing, hoping that they would start it for them, because then they know the whole world and the local white liberal scum would support them when they move in and wipe out the whites. If they could get the whites to start the fight they would have won their greatest victory, because in the eyes of the world they would be warranted to stop the white revolt and they would be allowed and supported in wiping us all out.
Hell is about to descend upon this country, for the whites in particular, and we had better realise it. The white liberals would try to convince you that there is no danger, no chance of genocide or civil war and that we have a great future ahead of us. The Volkstaters would try to convince you that there is no immediate danger, no chance of civil war and that there is sufficient time (another 20 to 30 years) for them to lead you to their Canaan so you should relax and leave your life and the life of your children in their capable trustworthy hands.
But heed my words today if you want, I’ve been concerned for a long time, but I’ve never been as concerned as I am now. We should not be sitting back, we should not be depending on politicians, liberals and idealists, we should not be allowing others to blindfold us as to the reality of the threat ahead, we should be planning and preparing ourselves in accordance with the realities of what is happening right in-front of our very own eyes.
Life in SA has changed, it is changing now and it is going to change for the worst, much worse than we could ever imagine. There is no time left for dreams, there is no time left to sit back and think it would all go away, it is time to get ready and prepare for that which everyone has been telling us would never happen.
This is Africa, this is not the west where people negotiate and make deals, here they take what they want, based on what their hearts and emotions tell them and those hearts are more filled with hate against the whites today than ever before.
Heed the words of the Rev Kemo Waters on twitter, January 07, 2012 -
“The only way to end racism is to kill a material number of whites.”
By: Johan PB Prinsloo
21 December 2011
“But there was so much human abuse & violation of the black population under the apartheid regime. They were treated like 3rd class citizens compared to us whites! The architects of apartheid were nazi Hitler sympathisers. It is the whole reason we are in this mess now because black families were destroyed by pass laws & bantu home lands which were designated to them on the worst land of the country, while the best land was kept for the whites! Apartheid was one of societies most evil events, and I am certainly NOT brainwashed. It Never should have happened, there should have been black people in power alongside white people from the beginning, maybe then there wouldnt be this current situation because they would have had more respect for us. This situation in SA now is the aftermath of the evil regime of apartheid, & It is sad but true!”
I want to add this. The people blaming the genocide on apartheid supported this ANC Regime all along and are therefore the architects of the Genocide and cannot be trusted now. They feel in most instances that the genocide is warranted, because it is viewed as payback for the so-called Human Rights Violations that were concocted by the media. Remember always that we were the children in school uniforms that were showed in movies abroad apparently using blacks for moving target practice. While the poor ignorant fools abroad never realised that we were actually filmed while doing target practice and later the films were edited to show blacks lying dead in-front of us. WE were the ones in those movies, therefore we know what really happened and how those films were produced and we know that the world could nail us today based on those movies as according to the world we really did shoot blacks in our school uniforms, at school and with the consent of the teachers. So these liberal idiots blaming today’s murders on apartheid do not deserve our time, because they do not even feel guilty for the murders that they were the architects of. To hell them. They will in future turn against us once again and when we have to defend ourselves against the Regime they are the ones that would once again use that film material, manipulate it and show the world, once again “Look at what those nasty Nazi SA whites are doing to the poor innocent blacks!” Mark my words these people will again use the film material to paint the opposite picture, because as stated so many times before, we SA whites were Nazi’s and that is how they view us and that is why they feel we deserve it as payback for the so-called atrocities of the past that they think happened here.
They are the same people that condoned the terrorist attacks on innocent civilians during the NP rule. It would take less than five minutes to loose them in discussion on the truth about those times, which they prefer to ignore or to know, like the fact that 90% of political deaths during that time was black on black perpetrated by their holy beloved terrorist ANC under the leadership of the architect of terrorism in SA the highly praised messiah of liberalism the Marxist-Leninist terrorist Nelson Mandela. They are ignorant about the role of Kissinger and how the whole situation was orchestrated with the help of Pik Botha and FW de Klerk and how the various situations were interwoven to achieve what we were handed in 1994. People think they know what “Apartheid” was about, because of what they heard from other liberals.
Young people have a completely distorted view and impression of pre-1994 SA, which is as it was intended to be. It has always been like this. Just as people are not aware of what is happening now, so too did they also not know what was happening during the time of the NP. Anyone calling an American a traitor and a sell-out is uninformed as to what went down in those days. SA was not sold out by America, SA was sold out by its own people. It is an absolute waste of time and effort trying to educate people on pre-1994 SA and even more so trying to change their ingrained perceptions of pre-1994 SA. Whatever their perceptions are is their business and if they want to learn the truth about it, they are at least 2000 books behind. There is no time for catching up, there is only time to address what is lying ahead.
This is a perspective on Nelson Mandela you will not read elsewhere. I know it was written by a right-winger, but the truth nonetheless
Nelson Mandela – communist, terrorist, rabble-rouser !
The Pass Laws
Something to think about is why so many black South Africans actually supported the NP, something no one ever tells us either. The first pass laws in South Africa were introduced on 27 June 1797 by the Earl Macartney in an attempt to exclude all natives from the Cape Colony. Introduced in South Africa in 1923, they were designed to regulate movement of black Africans in white urban areas. Outside designated “homelands”, black South Africans had to carry passbooks at all times, documentation proving they were authorised to live or move in “White” South Africa. The laws also affected other non-white races. Indian people, for example, were barred from the Orange Free State. These discriminatory regulations fuelled a growing discontentment from the black population and the ANC began the Defiance Campaign to oppose the pass laws. The Natives (Abolition of Passes and Co-ordination of Documents) Act, 1952, commonly known as the Pass Laws Act, made it compulsory for all black South Africans over the age of 16 to carry a “pass book” at all times within white areas. The system of pass laws was not the work of the National Party, but something they inherited and could not merely overnight abolish and certainly not at the time, it would have led to a revolution that they would not have been able to contain. The system of pass laws was repealed by the National Party in South Africa in 1986.
The Sharpville Massacre
On 21 March, a group of between 5,000 and 7,000 people converged on the local police station in the township of Sharpeville, offering themselves up for arrest for not carrying their pass books. This was part of a broader campaign organized by the PAC. Many of the crowd attended to support the protest, but there is evidence that the PAC also used intimidating means to draw the crowd to the protest, including the cutting of telephone lines into Sharpeville, the distribution of pamphlets telling people not to go to work on the day, and coercion of bus drivers and commuters. By 10:00 am, a large crowd had gathered, and the atmosphere was initially peaceful and festive. Fewer than 20 police officers were present in the station at the start of the protest. Later the crowd grew to about 20,000, and the mood turned hostile. About 130 police reinforcements, supported by four Saracen armored cars, were rushed in. The police were armed with firearms. There was no evidence that anyone in the crowd was armed with anything other than rocks. Sabre jets and Harvard Trainers approached to within a hundred feet of the ground, flying low over the crowd in an attempt to scatter it. The crowd responded by hurling stones, striking three policemen, and at about 1:00 pm the police tried to arrest a protester. There was a scuffle, and the crowd advanced toward the fence. The shooting began shortly thereafter. 69 people were killed. Police reports in 1960 claimed that inexperienced police officers panicked and opened fire spontaneously, setting off a chain reaction that lasted about forty seconds. It is likely that the police were nervous as two months before the massacre, nine other police officers had been killed at a riot in Cato Manor. The Cato Manor killings undoubtedly made policemen edgy when they were surrounded by black people, as they were at Sharpeville on the fateful day of March 21 1960. “If the PAC’s civil disobedience against the hated pass laws had not led to violence in Sharpeville – it had not done so in Soweto and elsewhere – it’s campaign might simply have become another failed attempt by blacks to persuade the government to abolish oppressive and discriminatory legislation, as Thomas Karis and Gwendolen Carter argue in their documentary history of black protest and resistance in South Africa.”
A major problem at Sharpeville on the fatal day was that PAC marshals appeared to be thin on the ground and/or not vigilant enough in preventing the crowd from pressing against the fence surrounding the police station. In his analytical chronicle of the Sharpeville shooting An Ordinary Atrocity, Philip Frankel goes a stage further when he writes: “… the much vaunted marshals, whose primary task was to steer up the mob … were unable or unwilling to steer the crowd away from what was clearly becoming a cataclysmic situation.”
But here comes the crux of the matter, the part very seldom, if ever mentioned anywhere. “Emeritus professor David Welsh provides another perspective in his excellent and newly published book The Rise and Fall of Apartheid. He identifies the immediate cause of the tragedy as two simultaneous events: firstly, a scuffle at the fence gate when security police officer Att Spengler opened it to let a member of the crowd in and some of the people at the gate entered with him, possibly because they were pushed from behind; and, secondly, the arrival at scene of Geelbooi, a common law criminal who was drunk and armed with a handgun, and who, thinking he had spotted a policeman who had maltreated him, fired two shots in the air.”
Sharpville was used as a political tool with more efficacy than any other event in SA history and in fact it was the only incident of its kind in all of pre-1994 SA that could be blamed on the Government and which is why it is the only one ever mentioned.
The question I often ask to people is what would they have done in that situation? I’ve been in that situation. I saw young soldiers 18, 19 years old wetting themselves and vomiting over themselves and they were only faced by some 50 raging rioters. I knew at the time that should I not step in and in the harshest possible manner diffuse the situation, anyone of those scared young men could lose it and pull a trigger out of fear and sheer nervous reaction, which could have led another massacre, but this time against rioting black soldiers, not civilians.
Imagine being faced with 20,000 angry rioters intent on killing you. Its easy for us to talk today, but if you have never been in that situation and do not know the circumstances its better sometimes to stand back and allow the media and politicians to enjoy their propaganda games.
Media manipulation of the facts:
“69 Blacks died. The official reports states that many were shot in the back. But the journalism have to be brought into question because the bodies photographed had EXIT wounds on their backs where the most blood is shown. Shot in the front, small entry, person runs away and collapses on his stomach, bloody exit wound on his back is photographed by BBC journalists and claim that he was shot in the back… you get the picture. If the police really wanted to commit a “massacre”, they would have shot wildly into the crowd, emptied their magazines and thousands of Blacks would have been killed. The fact that only 69 were killed was a testimony to the discipline and restraint exercised by the policemen. The Sunday night and the Monday morning preceding the “Massacre” the police drove the Blacks back with batons and tear gas, but they still kept coming, at about 13h35 on the Sunday they broke through the gates and their aim was to kill every policeman inside the police station.” Quoted from “Mike Smith’s Political Commentary: Sharpeville revisited: The Avocado tree at Cato Manor” http://mspoliticalcommentary.blogspot.com/2011/06/sharpeville-revisited-avocado-tree-at.html
The old SA is frequently being accused of “abhorrent human rights abuse”, but to this day no one could come up with any evidence to the effect, yet we can provide literally thousands of cases orchestrated and executed by the ANC against blacks since their founding some 100 years ago.
Stated Accusation: “the ANC government who used to be banned & brutalised by white police ended up becoming a military terrorist organisation”
Answer: According to the Human Rights Commission 73 people died while in Police detention during the period 1963 to 1990, which equates to 2.6 people annually during the “Apartheid” years. According to the Independent Complaints Directorate (IDC) 219 people died in police custody for the period 1997 to 1998 alone. And by the time we received their results for the period 2008 to 2009 a total of 912 people had died while in Police custody. Yes so obviously the old SA police were very brutal compared to the ANC Regime. LMAO
Stated Accusation: “The men who began apartheid were huge Hitler followers.” “There are differences as well as similarites between the two regimes. Germany & SA have totally different & unique demographics & circumstances. Does not change the fact that the old South Africa back in the 1930s-40′s, under nationalist rule was sympathetic to Hitlers ideals. Now that may not have been everyone in the Nats of that time but definately the kingpins & people who had the most influence in the party.” “the old South Africa back in the 1930s-40′s, under nationalist rule”??
Answer: The NP only took over the government in 1948, after WWII, after the fall of Nazi Germany. How could the National Party Government have been sympathetic to Nazi Germany when it did not even exist.
Stated Accusation: “For too long the blacks had been de-humanised & were starting to rise up for equal rights.”
Answer: Where are blacks more dehumanised than in black African states. There is no comparison between the dehumanisation of any blacks anywhere in Africa under black rule than ever was the case during Apartheid. I always find it interesting how the whole world would rise up against Apartheid, always refer to Apartheid and demonise Apartheid, yet no one ever says a word about Africa, the human rights violations in Africa during the past thousands of years. No one ever mentions the advantages of Apartheid, how it grew and develop South African blacks when compared against the rest of Africa during the same period. More black millionaires were produced under Apartheid than in all of Africa combined during the same period.
Isn’t it strange how all of Africa where “Apartheid” never existed is worse off than SA where Apartheid did exist. Their inhabitants (no African country has citizens, because citizens have a life) are generally worse off in all respects than any local SA blacks ever were. Isn’t it strange how the oldest liberated black state in the world is a disaster like none other more than 85 years after independence, without ever having been under Apartheid rule.
It was the first independent nation in Latin America and the first black-led republic in the world when it gained independence as part of a successful slave revolution in 1804.
Haiti was virtually bankrupt and the United States occupied the island in 1915 and US Marines were stationed in the country until 1934.
The US made massive improvements to infrastructure: 1700 km of roads were made usable; 189 bridges were built; many irrigation canals were rehabilitated hospitals, schools, and public buildings were constructed, and drinking water was brought to the main cities.
Sisal was introduced to Haiti, and sugar and cotton became significant exports. The U.S. Marines supervised the operations of a client Haitian government, and emphasized American-style modernization of the infrastructure and universal education. Haitian traditionalists were highly resistant to these changes while the urban elites wanted more control. Together they helped force an end to the occupation in 1934.
The US occupation forces established a boundary between Haiti and the Dominican Republic by taking disputed land from the latter. After the US left in 1934, Dominican dictator Rafael Trujillo – in an event known as the Parsley Massacre – ordered his Army to kill Haitians living on the Dominican side of the border. In a “three-day genocidal spree”, he murdered between 10,000 and 20,000 Haitians. He then developed a uniquely Dominican policy of racial discrimination, Antihaitianismo (“anti-Haitianism”), targeting the mostly black inhabitants of his neighboring country.
In 1925, Haiti was lush, with 60% of its original forest covering the lands and mountainous regions. Since then, the population has cut down an estimated 98% of its original forest cover for use as fuel for cookstoves, and in the process has destroyed fertile farmland soils, contributing to desertification.
In 2004, a revolt began in northern Haiti. René Préval was elected President in February 2006, following elections marked by uncertainties and popular demonstrations.
What do you think – will the generation of anti-Apartheid activist live long enough, to see South Africa turn into just another African dictatorship?
Do whites in South Africa have human rights?
By: Sonia Hruska
20 December 2011
Never before in the racially unstable history of South Africa has the country been so polarized by hate speech, Black Economic Empowerment and Affirmative Action. Now, with reversed roles the question should be asked if whites can count on the same human rights as were awarded their fellow black citizens. Nelson Mandela said: “For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” Does this pertain to the freedom of whites too?
Julius Malema sings about killing whites and taking away their land without compensation. The courts determined that it is hate-speech, but he continues to sing it. According to international law, as set out by the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, an early warning mechanism where racial discrimination has reached alarming levels is: ” (b) Presence of a pattern of escalating racial hatred and violence, or racist propaganda or appeals to racial intolerance by persons, groups or organizations, notably by elected or other State officials;”
Affirmative action as implemented by the ANC government is illegal, it should be time-bound, closely monitored and evaluated. They should not lead to the maintenance of separate rights for different groups and should not be continued after their intended objectives are achieved. Nuff said!
What do you think?
