Zim’s White Farmers Still Targeted–CFU

News 24 (Harare), September 5, 2011

A Zimbabwean farmers’ organisation says its white members continue to be the target of violence as political tensions rise ahead of proposed elections.

Charles Taffs, head of the Commercial Farmers’ Union (CFU) representing Zimbabwe’s 300 remaining white farmers, said on Monday the brutal beating to death of a prominent farmer 90km northwest of Harare on Friday showed that “criminals can act with impunity” against whites still on their land.

Taffs said the ferocity of Friday’s killing made it more than a “simple robbery” as police claimed.

It was the latest in a growing series of attacks and threats at white farms.

President Robert Mugabe has called for elections next March to end the nation’s troubled coalition.

    I’m sorry, but what are they still doing there? Unlike SA, it’s game over for whites in Rhodesia. Time to leave the farm(preferably after burning it and your crops to the ground) and get out. The alternative is getting brutally murdered with full approval of the black government.

    The tenuous clinging of civilization in Zimbabwe against the barbarity that is slowly overwhelming it would be fascinating if it were not so tragic. Only 300 white farmers left in the whole country? If they were an animal species they would surely be declared endangered and given international protection, but since they’re just white farmers…nothing.

  • Sincerely Concerned

    Unlike SA? SA white farmers are being killed so much they have formed their own “neighborhood watches” of sorts where they’re performing target practice and hand-to-hand combat. If Zim and SA farmers even survive, it will be a miracle, whether it’s from being killed or from staying in their occupations with the threats they face. I, for one, say, get out and let the majority race take over again, and watch those countries dry up like the Sahara. Of course, once they’re starving they will call on the white people to feed them again.

    Zimbabwe will fall and turn into another African failure, meanwhile the Chinese are taking over the rest of the continent.

  • Guilty White Guilt

    I have guilt about white guilt. My white guilt, in the 1980s, led to my participation in the “Divest Now!” student movement forcing university endowments to sell off any assets with a South African connection. Today, when I see what is happening in the “post-racist paradises” of Zimbabwe and South Africa, I am filled with overwhelming guilt–I schemed and shouted to help a bunch of thugs attack people who share my own genes?!?!

    What does it matter what the Chinese do in Africa. That doesn’t involve whites. This is a white nationalist forum. I couldn’t care less what happens in Africa involving the Chinese. We want a white nation where we are left alone, yet some of us can’t seem to leave others alone.

    I hope the farmers of Zimb remain safe. They need to get out of there ASAP. That place is a lost cause.

    Blacks are always going to use Whites as targets until they start fighting back. Once they stop putting up with the crap, this will continue.

    Oh, this also applies to other places out of Africa where they show dominance. They will always prey on others where there’s no resistance – US, Europe etc.

  • American Cowboy

    Not a peep from the MSM on the racist atrocities committed by the Africans.

    South Africa is well on it’s way to Zimbabwe status. There is a lot of whining about whites still holding most of the wealth and top executive positions in SA.

    Black Nationalists like ANC youth leader Julius Malema are pushing for Nationalizing businesses,mines and land because the current transfer programs are going to slowly for their liking.

    I understand the whites feeling that South Africa & Zimbabwe are their countries also, but they need to see the writing on the wall. Blacks will not stop until they control everything. Whites must sell and get out before they take your property, business or your life from you. Zimbabwe is the future of South Africa.

    Let the Africans turn a once first rate white built countries into a jungle of corruption and incompentence. They will richly deserve the squalor that entails.

    Also what happens in South Africa shows us the future of a white minority USA.

    There is a time to fold your cards and move your family to a place of hope. My ancestors left the British Isles for a better future and I will eventually move from the Memphis area for a better future for my children.I tell them they are not to plan to live in the Memphis area.Most of my cousins and one brother have already done so. Yesterday I told a single 24 year old white man to get out of here..he has nothing but family here now. Whites must move to where there is hope..until our people get the backbone to fight for what is rightfully ours.

  • Martha Cable

    I wonder how kind the chinese will be to these black heathens? I can’t imagine them tolerating any violence from them. And I, for one, will never give not one penny to feed any of them. Let them starve, the whole continent. They butchered the whites who were the only people who had the work ethic and intellingence to grow food. There is a reason why they call afrika “the dark continent”. I wish this gov. would allow all the whites to emigrate to this country. We’ll even gladly trade somalis, 10,000 to one, as they should be with their black brothers.

  • Miss Whitey

    I understand the frustration of the posters of the comments on this section. However, if we White people constantly leave areas because the Blacks or other nonwhites don’t want us there, where will we move to? This is true whether in Zimbabwe, South Africa, Memphis TN, or Phoenix AZ.

    Pretty soon in America the Mexicans in the southwestern portion will demand that Whites move out of these areas. Already a racist Mexican in Phoenix AZ who states he is active in La Raza is calling for Latinos to arm themselves for war (against Whites). He states that within the next 5 years there will be a civil war. Where will we Whites go to where we would be safe from even more harrassment by nonwhites?

    (Yes it’s true that demographically Mexicans are dominant in the southwest and don’t need to create war. However, I believe they want a “pure” Mexican demography in these areas. Therefore, their thinking is that the remaining Whites need to get out.)

    The Afrikaners and South African Whites, the Zimbabwean Whites, and the American Whites need to stand up in their countries and fight back. Otherwise, no matter where we go, they will haunt us and destroy us.

    I’ve heard the farmers from SA and Zimbabwe have been invited to Democratic Republic of the Congo to help develope agricuture there.

    “What does it matter what the Chinese do in Africa. That doesn’t involve whites.”

    When the Chinese — who have no great love for us — take over Africa and begin exploiting its mineral and agricultural riches for their own advancement, you will find out that it matters very much to Whites.

    “I couldn’t care less what happens in Africa involving the Chinese.”

    Your children and grandchildren will someday have a good but bitter laugh at your short-sightedness.

    Good post, but I would like to flesh out a few points.

    What the La Raza Civil War warning is concerned with is actual secession of the Southwest from the U.S., not just a domination of population, although they can be relied upon to act on the San Diego Plan of 1915 that calls for all white males over 16 to be killed. Of course, they are forgetting that the U.S. military may have some affect on their ability to do all of this. Remember that groups like these (including Amreners) often speak only to themselves and come to assess themselves in unrealistic terms, especially power wise. Once they declare a “war on whites,” or on the U.S. government, things would become far more difficult for them. I actually wish they would so that we can get this whole thing over with and finally legally remove ALL Hispanics from the U.S. It will be an existential test for the continuity of U.S.

    The other point is that SA whites aren’t recognizing that they actually lost control of their government some time ago. They are trying to hang on because farming is still a very lucrative business there and history shows us that people will hang on in terrible situations because we are all both personal optimists and also tend to be unrealistic, thinking that bad things won’t happen personally to us.

    At some point these issue do and will become more obvious and final.

    @Mike H.

    Bad as the situation is, we have no right to say “game over.” I knew a Rhodesian in college (recently), and after graduation he went back to Zimbabwe, bad as it is. It’s his home after all. I should also note that while white farmers certainly face extinction, usually I see the total number of whites in Zimbabwe at between 20,000 and 30,000, so all hope is not yet lost.

    In a way, the whites there have an advantage. Since the full reality of black rule is already upon them, they are far more racially conscious than whites in the West. At least a significant minority have their will to life back; there must be some way for them to persevere, especially if Mugabe is ever replaced by someone less extreme. (And, I think, if we admitted it was “game over” in Zimbabwe, how long before we cede Brussels and London as well?)

  • chuck

    A lot have commented as to what are these white farmers still doing there. Don’t forget most if not all were born in Zimbabwe and their roots are there. It is very hard to leave your home behind to relocate elsewhere to start over. That said most of the blacks have no idea how to farm, make a budget and how to sell the produce if there is any. It’s guaranteed failure. The Zim government killed the goose that laid the golden egg, the white farmers in this case, and it will never return….very sad.

    yes, my stupid son in law would go along with that. Distribute the wealth, and then no private property.

    Whites need to move to States where there are large percentages of Whites. They will still have loads of problems due to the fact that families are breaking apart and young people have morals like, well, I was going to say like alley cats, but it is pretty much like a certain segment of society. If you equate freedom with running around half naked and using speech that my grandmother would have gotten the lye soap and marched us behind the woodshed, well… we reap what we sow.

    Oh, I see now. For you, this is not about having a white nation. It’s not about wanting to be left alone to determine our own futures. To you, it’s about conquering the world using some imaginary excuses. They’ll get us if we don’t get them first. How many times throughout history has that been used already?

    Well, to be realistic, the USA is in no danger of ever becoming majority BLACK, let alone 80% black as in South Africa. The demographic/racial future of the US is more along the lines of Argentina.

    Frankly, with whites controlling nearly 3/4 of the world’s land, blacks having their little corner in Sub-Saharan Africa doesn’t worry me in the least.

    Never mind the Congo, or anywhere else. White Rhodesians and Boer South Africans need to get out of there now, and go perhaps to Uraguay, or Argentina.

    @ 5 White Guilt

    At least you have the courage to admit your mistake. That’s progress.

    Now please talk to all your liberal friends from that era and later and alert them to what is going on in South Africa today

    We need all the help we can get to rid the world of idiotic liberalism and convert them to race realism.

  • Jack in Chicago

    There is a small, but growing movement for Whites to migrate to the Pacific NorthWest and start a new, White North West Republic that is independent from the corruptions and chaos of Washington D.C., LA, Memphis, Hollywood etc.

    This movement has some good writers, speakers and some small communities forming – give it a look.

    White lemmings in America must realize that through the threat of world sanctions imposed by Washington against South Africa and Rhodesia, America is taking part in a plan to destroy South Africa and Rhodesia against our better judgement.

    When Henry Kissinger, under Gerald Ford flew down to South Africa in 1976, he threatened PM Foster, who was aiding Rhodesia’s independence at the time, with the cut-off of Iranian oil supplies, and the deflation of South African gold which made up 40% of their economy.

    Socialists number 10% in America.

    America must wake up soon.
