    Hey folks, help me shut down these anti-whites at this link:


  • I cannot believe it. Blacks are worse than I thought

    • Rocky Bass,

       Surely you just hadn’t given it too much thought.

      • Thank You! That was the best laugh I’ve had all day. Still chuckling as I hit post.

        I try not to give blacks much of anything, including my “thoughts.” The squalor, filth, and propensity to use violence (as if it were like a day at the office) that SA blacks exhibited in this series should be a wake up call to all. Even the “righteous” blacks were prone to use violence. I suppose I cannot blame them, seeing how SA has become a third-world hell under ANC leadership.

  • Theroux stupidly blames a childhood of brutality etc etc for the savagery of these niggers. Hey,theyre niggers.

      “Plant” Alert!

      There is a high probability Mr. “Darius Jackson” is a “plant.”  Purpose?  Simple guilt-by-association — to associate this Amren with vicious language and sentiments.

      “Planting” misleading or false information  is a tactic of the left.   


      • The__Bobster

        I don’t see anything misleading or false in Darius’s statement.

        • holyflower

          Here’s what’s misleading, The Bobster.  It’s misleading to give the impression that the vicious language “Darius Jackson” uses in his post is acceptable to most Amreners. 

          I’ve been to two Amren conferences and watched videos of 3/4s of the others.  I heard the word he used once by a dim-witted attendee at a luncheon table at one conference.  He completely turned off all who heard him.I’ve read all issues of American Renaissance over a five year period.  I don’t know that I’ve ever seen the word used except in a clinical way once or twice.  Never as an ad hominen as did “Darius.”I’ve read a great many articles and posts on Amren.com over the last four years.  I can’t recall seeing the word — or at least it left on the board for any length of time.Anyone who thinks using Darius’ language in some way advances the ethnic interests of whites is a fool.  My guess is that Darius in not a fool. He is instead a plant.  

          • holyflower

            A reminder of the usefulness of the Darius-Jackson-style vicious approach to human biodiversity is the late Bull Connor, Commissioner of Public Safety for Birmingham, Alabama in the early 196os.

            Here’s what Bull Connor’s viciousness — vicious actions, not vicious language — accomplished for white ethnic interests.  From Wikipedia:

            “Connor became an international symbol of bigotry. Connor infamously directed the use of fire hoses, and police attack dogs against peaceful demonstrators, including children. His aggressive tactics backfired when the spectacle of the brutality being broadcast on national television served as one of the catalysts for major social and legal change in the southern United States and helped in large measure to assure the passage by the United States Congress of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.”

            That’s Bull Connor’s legacy.  Darius Jackson’s legacy (whether he be imposter or for real) and the legacy of all those on this board who seek to endorse and/or emulate his style of discourse will be small potatoes compared to Bull Connor’s. 

            But it will certainly trend in that direction.

      Those black people are victims because they were born into an environment of brutality.  And they’re hard to help because when you move some of those poor victims into a good area, they quickly change that place into another environment of brutality.  

  • loyalwhitebriton

    This louis Theroux character has been a regular on British TV for over a deacde now. Don’t pay any attention to him. He’s a typical liberal/lefty journo type, who would have been writing for the New York Times had it not been for an accident of birth.
    Theroux looks white European, and speaks with a British accent; he even comes across as calm and reasonable. Don’t fall for it. Theroux is a traitor to the british, and white people in general.
    **** Louis Theroux, he’s a ******* ********!

    • holyflower

      Solid, revealing information can come from compromised sources.  Amren thought the video was worth sharing.  It’s characterization, “unblinking look at the new South Africa,” is apt.   One does oneself no favor by avoiding this video.

      • loyalwhitebriton

        You’re right, holyflower. I haven’t actually watched the video. Having seen many of Theroux’s programmes over the years I just expect more of the same simpering liberal propoganda which is his hallmark. Perhaps Theroux has come good for once (probably inadvertantly). Anyway, I’ll give the videos a whirl.

    • Dan Reardon

       Theroux sounds and acts like he may have a little sugar in his tank.

  • holyflower

    Most revealing, which is quite unexpected from the BBC.  But this tall geeky white investigative reporter nails his story, which is how some semblance of “order” is maintained in urban parts of South Africa.

    In brief, there are many ways  “justice” is dispensed: corrupt police,  authorized citizen patrols, private security forces, and “community response” (vigilante justice: mobs catching thieves and burning them).

    All four elements seem to play a roughly equal role in the ghetto life of modern Johannesburg.  

    • The__Bobster

      There’s a show on PBS called BBC News America. All it does is promote the leftist agenda and trash American conservatives.

      • holyflower

        Irrelevant to my comment.

      • loyalwhitebriton

        Yeah, and we pay for said leftist propoganda via a TV licence fee (which is a tax).
        Sorry about that, but we have no choice but to pay, it’s the law.
        I look forward to the day when the licence fee is abolished and the BBC is privatised; Oh such a happy thought….

  • That reporter comes across as a blundering idiot. But it’s really scary to think that this is how much of Europe will be in a few decades. This is the future of the entire Western world because this is what our “leaders” have chosen for us. Disgusting.

    By the way, why are the moderators allowing the use of the word “n****r” in comments?


    • Oil Can Harry

      As far as I know there’s only one moderator and he can’t be everywhere at once.

      You’re completely right about this clueless bedwetting leftist named Theroux. At the beginning of part 4 two black thugs describe their horrifying criminal history and Theroux opines that they’re joking!

      Earlier a man claims he regularly bribes the (majority black) SA police force and Theroux doubts him. These white elitists are so naive it’s stunning. 

      • godzillabloggs

        Louis Theroux is the distilled essence of wimpishness.  Even so, his programme has  value, in that the black thugs’ story was not edited out completely, so viewers are free to make up their own minds about its truth.

    • Marcy Fleming

       Why shouldn’t they ? That’s exactly what these lowlifes are.

      •  I use the term myself (sparingly) but it had been American Renaissance’s policy to prohibit its use because the uninitiated might get the impression that its policy is one of hatred toward all blacks (or non-whites for that matter). Like it or not, many people equate the use of the term with such hatred.

        • godzillabloggs

          Plain speaking is absolutely necessary.   Insults and name-calling are  sometimes impossible to resist but if used too often may create a bad impression on potential sympathisers.

  • This is what much of America will be like in a few years if we continue on our present course, we go the way of Greece and we have to impose “austerity” upon ourselves (or imposed by our lenders/China)….


    As I’ve said before, money is like guns — better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

    “Post on AmRen less, earn (and donate to AmRen) more.”

  • Marcy Fleming

    Have a question here. Does anyone know the origins of that hauntingly beautiful music in the Death Of Johannesburg ? Have watched it so many times and recommended it to Ilana Mercer ,
    whose latest book on South Africa I’m hoping to get any day now.

  • Sloppo

    In another video, I saw Louis Theroux claim to be a “multiculturalist”.  Under the multicultural model, the most filthy, violent, and uncivilized groups will drive out and destroy the more civilized peoples.  South Africa should be his idea of paradise because this is the kind of society multiculturalism creates.  The old racially segregated South Africa which was lawful, clean and prosperous is the kind of society Louis hates.

  • Eurobeing

    Listen I am going to defend Darius Jackson. Be he plant or not. We are not going to win this war with words alone as we might as well call a spade a spade.

    One of our problems is that we are so darned civil. We tiptoe throught the tulips of multiculturalisim afraid we will offend or be perceived as ignorant. Let’s face it things are gonna get ugly and when they do the most civilized among us will loose.

  • Rebelcelt

    I agree but i can tell that he does not fully appreciate how quickly a mob can form up and kill him because he is white. My God they have to fire shotguns at people to keep them from forming up and killing him and he sits there and asks niave questions. You can feel the sense of frustration his guide and body guard has about his niavete.

  • godzillabloggs

    … and quite possibly the only kind of white man the blacks were prepared to talk to frankly.

  • newscomments70

    This is our future in the U.S. if we continue to allow out of the control third world invasion aka “immigration”…violent squatter camps ruled by warlords…and an extremely high risk of death if you are a white person simply going for a walk. 

  • I agree that it did take some “courage “to go into those places, even though he was under armed escort.Then again, the multiculturalist liberal lives under the mantra, “we are all humans.” The blacks he interacted with are not the wimpy multiculturalists that he is. I have no doubt in my mind that had he ventured into any of these places unescorted, he would have never come out alive.

  • newscomments70

    This feature reminds me of the dystopian movie, “The Road”….the destruction of a once peaceful, prosperous civilization, replaced by a feral, barbarian existence. 

  • This business of “don’t listen to so-and-so, he’s a commie” has got to stop. Say what you will about Theroux, he’s got balls just to go out there and get the story, and he can’t be blind to the fact that no amount of po-faced framing by him will contain it.

    • godzillabloggs

      Agreed.  For the most part,  the mainstream media is keeping us in the dark about the dire situation in South Africa, so when the occasional piece of  honest reporting comes our way, it is foolish to complain that about the messenger.
