For weeks, the left-wing ‘Black Lives Matters Movement’ in the United States and increasingly in other countries around the world has been demonstrating the so-called ‘structural racism’ of the white majority of the population against blacks. Racism against whites, on the other hand, does not occur in the one – dimensional world of ideas of activists, because whites are always perpetrators and never victims. The fact that the Holocaust, i.e. the systematic murder of the (white) Jews by the Nazis, who were declared to have racist motives, shows that this claim is incorrect. The story popularized by the regular media is just as wrong: racism would only start from whites against blacks or other colored minorities, but never the other way around. Racism is a matter of power and might in the hands of “old white men”. South Africa is the opposite example.
Since the end of apartheid in 1994, the former black liberation movement ANC, together with the Communist Party (SACP) and the left-wing trade union federation Cosatu, have been ruling in a so-called Tripartite Alliance. But the much-cited “rainbow nation” in the Cape, in which the various races and peoples live together peacefully and move together towards a better future, is a brainchild.
In fact, the post-apartheid era has been a nightmare, especially for the white minority, who make up about 9 percent of the country’s nearly 58 million people. Just under 80,000 whites, mostly Boers and descendants of British immigrants, have been killed in the past three decades. Last but not least, this has to do with the excessive crime in the African country.
58 murders a day in South Africa
Every day, an average of 58 people are killed by criminals in South Africa. That’s six times more than in the United States. 40 percent of the victims are whites, most of whom are killed by black perpetrators. Last but not least, the focus of the violence is on white farmers.
According to the Transvaal Farmers Union TLU SA, a total of 5,437 attacks on farms were carried out between 1990 and May 2020. 2067 farmers were killed. This figure excludes the killed agricultural workers. Other sources even speak of 3,600 victims. In the first half of the current year alone, there were at least 156 attacks on farms and 24 murders, despite the strict exit restrictions that apply in South Africa due to the Corona epidemic. Some recent examples illustrate the cruelty with which perpetrators act against their mostly white victims:
• On June 1, the local doctor Dr. Roelof Botha, who lived on a farm in the wine village of Tulbagh near Cape Town, was stabbed with sheep shears. The 27-year-old black Aiden Abels was arrested by police as an urgent suspect.
• On June 6, Schalk and Lana Coetzee, an elderly couple aged 64 and 63, were brutally attacked by three black men on their farm outside the town of Reivilo (northwestern province). Schalk Coetzee was flooded by the attackers with boiling water and was seriously injured. Lana Coetzee was hit in the face by the perpetrators and suffered severe bruises and fractures. The victims are still in the hospital.
• On June 12, Oom Piet Pieterse was attacked, robbed and wounded with a machete (panga) by two black men wearing beehive hats on his farm Kudoesdraai, Leeudoringstad, in northwestern South Africa. Uncle Piet had deep cuts in his head to be admitted to a hospital.
• On June 18, 73-year-old Koos Janse van Rensburg was attacked by two blacks on his property in his area in Haakdoringboom north of Pretoria and brutally beaten. Within a week, the police have registered ten such crimes in the area. On the same day, a gang of black attackers attacked a farm near the town of Polokwane (formerly Pietersburg) in the northeastern province of Limpopo. Two children aged 9 to 14 suffered this injury after the criminals shot indiscriminately into the parental home. The white owners and their farm workers were robbed by the invaders. In Onderstepoort in the neighboring province of Gauteng, seven attacks on farms were registered within 24 hours at a time.
The above list is just a small selection of criminal attacks by black perpetrators on white farmers in South Africa. The fact that the number and intensity of such attacks has increased in recent years may be due to the decision of the South African Parliament to expropriate white landowners without compensation. It is currently being examined how this decision can be implemented in constitutional law. The intensified political debate has further fueled the vote against whites in South Africa and seems to justify some blacks using force to do what they have to do.
Racism against whites is encouraged
But it is not just the emotional debate over the expropriation of agricultural land that is fueling hatred of white farmers. In his book Kill The Boer: Government Complicity in South Africa’s Brutal Farm Murders, which was published in early 2019, author Ernst Roets shows how corruption in the police and anti-white media propaganda promote a climate of ‘systemic racism’ in South Africa in which attacks on farms are tolerated or even encouraged. Moreover, it must not be forgotten that during the apartheid era, the now ruling ANC chose white farmers as a special enemy, which was also expressed in the battle cry “Kill the farmer, kill the farmer”. This continues to have an impact today.
Radical black politicians like Julius Malema. Leaders of the left-wing extremist Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), which he founded in 2013 and chaired the ANC Youth League until 2012, continue to pour oil on the fire and provoke racist attacks on the white minority. Asked if he was involved in the planning of murders of white farmers, Malema answered meaningfully in 2018: “Maybe, maybe not.” With 10.79 percent, the EVF was the third strongest force in South Africa in the general elections.
The Black First Land First (BLF), a spin-off of the EFF chaired by Andile Mngxitama, is also openly racist. It sees itself as revolutionary and socialist. The BLF only allows blacks, Indians and coloreds as members, not whites. The main purpose of the BLF, as set out in the preamble of the statutes, is the expropriation of white landowners in South Africa without compensation.
Mngxitama has repeatedly campaigned against the white minority and unpopular journalists in the past. In addition, the BLF publicly urged black people to occupy farms owned by white owners in order to reclaim their land.
Anti-white positions also in government
Anti-white racism in South Africa is not limited to radical groups, but extends to the government. Last year, Zindzi Mandela-Hlongwane, the South African ambassador to Denmark, abused the white minority in various tweets on Twitter under the hashtag “OurLand”, among others as “trembling cowards”, that is, “rapist descendants of Van Riebeck (sic!)” (correct: Van Riebeeck) and »land thieves«. In fact, most of present-day South Africa was uninhabited when it was ruled by the Boers 300 years ago. Zindzi Mandela-Hlongwane is the youngest daughter of Nelson Mandela and his second wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela. She officially appeared as the first lady of South Africa between 1996 and 1998 after her father divorced her mother Winnie.
A few weeks ago, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa went even further. In a video discussion on the death of Black George Floyd in the United States, the head of state said:
»There is a natural sequence of things that [encourages] white South Africans to racist outbursts. (…) It also promotes violence in our home. All of these factors make it possible for a black policeman to kill a black man on an American street. It is this ‘order’ that must be challenged and broken. «
Ramaphosa, who has also chaired the ANC since 2017, is considered one of the richest men in South Africa with an estimated fortune of $ 450 million. The former union leader and ‘dedicated socialist’ would not owe this wealth in the last place to the ‘Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment’ (B-BBEE for short), a program. which officially serves to create economic equality for blacks, but in fact actively discriminates against white citizens. Only a small black elite is being promoted, while millions of South Africans continue to live in poverty, criticized former Archbishop Desmond Tutu in 2004.
It has remained the same to this day. Even if one applies the dubious criteria of left-wing social scientists, racism is by no means a domain of “old white men”, as the mainstream claims. South Africa is a particularly frightening example!
