First, They Came For South Africa. Then….
You don`t hear much about South Africa these days,
unless it`s about all the trouble that country`s white
people are causing—or whatever white people remain
Since the "apartheid system" was dismantled in 1994
and a "black majority democracy" "liberated" the
country, more and more whites leave—mainly because so
many have been murdered by black criminals whom the
government of the "black majority democracy" refuses or
is simply unable to control.
The most recent report about South Africa in what in
this country is often called the "mainstream media" is a
story about "white extremists" accused of plotting to
overthrow the government or in one case to blow up a dam
or set off bombs in downtown Johannesburg.
The Economist, a dozen men have been arrested
for such offenses, but the magazine, which is about as
"mainstream" as you can get in this country or Great
Britain, dismisses what it calls the "deluded
right-wing conspirators" as "paper tigers."
But in the media that is not so mainstream, at least
in this part of the world, you hear somewhat different
stories about South Africa. Thus,
The Independent of South Africa on
Saturday reported last week that a new study published
South Africa Crime Quarterly,
a law enforcement journal, finds that South Africans are
more likely to be shot dead than to die in vehicle
crashes. "An average of 55 South Africans are …
murdered every day," the paper reports, "more
than in many countries which are at war." At 55
murders per day, the total number of murders per year is
about 20,000, compared to about 16,000 for the United
States. The latter, of course, has more than six times
the population of South Africa.
A few years ago, South Africa`s murder rate was said
to be among the highest in the world, if not the
highest. But the new "black majority democracy" banned
reporting of crime statistics because it discouraged
foreign investment, so today no one really knows. In
1999 the Wall Street Journal called the level of
violent crime in South Africa "astronomical," with
some 24,500 murders and a per capita murder rate (26 per
hundred thousand) four times that of the United States.
Even The Economist allows that "right-wing
terrorism" is fed by whites`
fear of black violence and the government`s refusal to
The New York Times in 1998
reported that some 500 white farmers had been
murdered since 1994, and last summer World Net Daily
reported that 1,200 have been murdered since that year,
with some 6,000 attacks against
white farmers. "It`s politically correct to kill
whites these days," one white farmer told World
Net Daily`s correspondent, who
concluded that "the white Boer Afrikaner farmer
is easily the highest at-risk group for murder on
It`s hardly surprising therefore that
Africa`s foreign minister last week
urged Western states to stop grousing about
Zimbabwe, where government-backed black mobs have so far
killed only a handful of white farmers but where the
government itself has
seized the land of some 3,000 whites.
Whatever criticisms the West has made of Zimbabwe
could just as easily be applied to South Africa itself,
so it makes sense for the black-ruled states to stick
It also makes sense for white-ruled states to stick
together, but they don`t. It`s precisely
because of what the United States, Western Europe,
Great Britain and the Soviet Union
did in the 1970s through the 1980s that whites in
southern Africa today face the loss of their land, their
livelihoods, their freedoms, and their lives.
blacks, for that matter—of southern Africa were not
delivered to tyranny and destruction by blacks but by
"The radical blacks hate us," the white South
African farmer told World Net Daily last summer,
"because we are strong, blonde, hard-working and
productive. We came to South Africa and turned it into
the richest country in the world, while before we came
the locals had been here for many centuries and did
nothing with the land."
The wife of yet another white farmer told the same
reporter, "The farm invasion problem is not confined
to South Africa. Look at Zimbabwe. Look at the call for
white Australians to give their land back to the
Aborigines. Look at the problems on the
border with Mexico and the United States and the
massive Third World immigration in Europe.
European Western civilization is totally under siege
by the New World Order elite."
What she says explains why so many whites are leaving
the new democracies of southern Africa and why those who
can`t get out might be tempted to turn to terrorism.
If a South African housewife understands the big
picture of which her country is a small part, why don`t
the leaders of the countries that betrayed their own
people and civilization?
