South Africa Is an Angry Nation on the Brink, Warns Nelson Mandela’s Wife

Aislinn Laing, Telegraph (London), March 7, 2013

Graca Machel, the human rights activist and wife of Nelson Mandela, has warned that South Africa is an “angry nation” teetering on the brink of “something very dangerous” if extreme levels of violence in the country are not addressed.

Mrs Machel said the anger sprung from “unaddressed” issues around the country’s apartheid past, adding: “We have to be more cautious about how we deal with a society that is bleeding and breathing pain”.

Her comments are seen as deeply significant as both she and her husband have previously refrained from sharing their views about how the nation is being run since he left the presidency 14 years ago.

Mrs Machel was speaking at the memorial service on Wednesday of Mido Macia, a 27-year-old taxi driver who died in custody after he was tied to the back of a police van and dragged for 500 metres by officers, apparently for arguing over a traffic infringement.

The incident was recorded on the mobile phones of several people in a large crowd that witnessed the atrocity, in a town west of Johannesburg last Tuesday.

Coming less than a year after police opened fire on miners striking over wages at the Marikana platinum mine, killing 34 people, it reignited concern among South Africans that the world-renowned brutality of their criminals is now matched only by the increasingly infamous violence of their police force.

A visibly upset Mrs Machel, a Mozambican herself and the widow of its former president Samora Machel, told a cheering crowd that the “increasing institutionalisation of violence” was creating a police force “actively aggressive towards a defenceless public”.

“South Africa is an angry nation,” she said. “We are on the precipice of something very dangerous with the potential of not being able to stop the fall.

“The level of anger and aggression is rising. This is an expression of deeper trouble from the past that has not been addressed. We have to be more cautious about how we deal with a society that is bleeding and breathing pain.”

The death of Mr Macia came after other recent examples of police brutality, including the alleged operation by police in Durban of a death squad which executed criminals—and, often, innocent bystanders—with impunity, and the beating death by police of Andries Tatane, an unarmed man taking part in a protest about a lack of basic services in his Free State town.

Yet widespread fear of the police has prompted no let-up in the country’s rampant criminality.

Last month there was national outrage over the gang-rape, mutilation and murder of 17-year-old girl named Anene Booysen.

It was followed by the shock arrest of the nation’s former golden boy, Paralympian Oscar Pistorius, over the fatal shooting of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. He told police he believed she was an intruder; they say he murdered her after a row.

On Thursday, newspapers carried a story about a four-month-old baby boy who was pepper-sprayed while he slept in his mother’s arms by robbers who broke into the family’s home in Durban.

While Mrs Machel did not lay the blame for such fury at any particular door, her comments will be devastating for the ANC, which has run South Africa since apartheid and frequently evokes Mr Mandela’s name to retain the loyalty of voters amid accusations that it has failed to address inequality or clamp down on corruption.

They coincide with a growing number of assaults on the country’s leadership and direction by other prominent figures, including Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Mr Mandela’s lawyer George Bizos, and former president Thabo Mbeki.

Allister Sparks, a writer and political commentator, said they reflected a profound unease among the big beasts of the anti-apartheid struggle.

“It is extremely unusual for Mrs Machel to speak out on any political issues at all and it’s very significant indeed that she has done so now,” he said.

Adam Habib, vice-chancellor of the University of Witwatersrand, said violence was now endemic in spiralling protests about corruption, a lack of basic services and continued inequality.

“People feel that extreme violence is the only way they can get heard—and police react in an even more violent way, which is beginning to seep into the national psyche,” he said.

William Gumede, author of a new history of the ANC movement entitled Restless Nation, said South Africa was in the midst of a “perfect storm” of economic factors, a historically wounded society and continuing social violence.

“There is a deep-rooted anger which is a legacy of apartheid but there’s also a new resentment towards former comrades who are doing so well when so many lead useless and hopeless lives,” he said.

But President Zuma, speaking to traditional leaders in parliament on Thursday, said that despite the events of recent weeks, it was wrong to paint his country as an “inherently violent place to live in”.

“We should be careful not to rubbish our country without realising,” he told traditional leaders at parliament,” he said. “South Africa is not (a) violent country. It is certain people in our country who are violent. By and large we are not, we are peace-loving people.”

Mr Gumede said that the country’s leadership was “complacent”.

“The ANC leadership doesn’t seem to understand the delicate position we have come to and may only wake up to what’s happening if their supporters voice their frustrations at the ballot box,” he said.

Keith Khoza, an ANC spokesman, said it “doesn’t help to point fingers”.

“These are issues that need to be confronted by the nation, not only government,” he said. “The nation must act in union with civil society, churches and government.”

South Africa’s total post-apartheid recorded crime levels have dropped by almost a quarter since their peak in 2002/2003.

    Classic Leftism:

    “Mrs Machel said the anger sprung from “unaddressed” issues around the country’s apartheid past, adding: “We have to be more cautious about how we deal with a society that is bleeding and breathing pain”.”
    ———- Blame evil whitey for black police officers dragging a blackman to death. Yeah, it must be a ‘legacy’ of apartheid. That system ended 25 years ago, and it was NOT slavery, nor does it have roots that go back centuries. It was a system to keep blacks and whites living in separate areas, but they could and did still mingle during the work day. Yes, the ever growing black population was angry because they didn’t have as many goodies as the whites, but to say that ‘anger’ is somehow responsible for all the crime today is ludicrous, because it was NOT slavery. I read in many places that crime was LESS among blacks in those days. I guess it’s like over here in the states. The black family was basically intact from the nend of slavery until the 1960s, then the civil rights movement came, along with wholesale invasion by blacks into white towns and cities all across the nation. And now, volia! Black families are broken, black society is full of violence, and they blame evil whitey for everything, even though most black people never come into contact with white people ever except for some common market places.

    • America First

      Millions of blacks from outside SA fled INTO the country during the 45 or so years apartheid was in place. There was no question that black people living under apartheid had a better life – and more opportunity – than in any other country in all of Africa. The western elites who promoted the dismantling of the Afrikaaner regime(s) should be ashamed of themselves. What is left is a dysfunctional nation, a destructive culture and anti0-white genocide. (Which the main stream press in the U.S. still fails to take note of.)

          Several Dylan songs from the 90s on; Political World, Everything is Broken, I Used to Care, High Water, and a good number of other songs proclaiming a very different view/opinion of things than the long rejected early 60s Civil Rights styled songs. I went to see him in concert last October, curious if my guesses were correct. They were; for his set, he selected the above songs and others that repeatedly proclaimed that all that leftist idealism has gone terribly wrong. For an encore, he played a very frivolously delivered version of “Blowin’ in the Wind. At the end of the show, he just stood near the edge of the stage and stared at the audience. I used my binoculars. The look on his face was; “You still don’t get it, do you?”

          • Your description of the concert and his edge of the stage expression has served the purpose of making me think far better of the man than I had in the past. I didn’t know he had it in him.

            Average people have a hard time throwing off stereotypes of people especially celebrities, once the first impression was made. However, if you investigate his history by simply reviewing one of his several bio films out there, you will find out that he made a big effort to get away from the manipulation of the Left early on. When he switched to electric guitar at the Newport Folk festival, he was booed off stage. When he toured England with his new, avante guarde style and would not sing protest songs, he received numerous death threats. He stopped touring. After that he had a bad motorcycle crash, but when he emerged in 1970 and on, he was often writing anti-left or “movement” sounding lyrics or just love ballads. In 69, his hit was “Lay Lady Lay.” Blood on the Tracks is one of his best selling lps of all time. One song on it is called “Idiot Wind,” and taken along with the type of things he later increasingly wrote, seemed to be pretty clearly about all the “movements” of the 60s,”It’s a wonder that you still know how to breath!” Later in the 70s, he got into a Christian phase and made two religious albums. He actually has always has used many words and images from the Bible.

            At his second appearance at the Newport Folk Festival, Johnny Cash came to visit him and gave him a guitar. The two formed a fast friendship. I really think that after Woody Guthrie, Johnny Cash is Dylan’s main mentor and his theme selections seem to have a kinship with Cash’s style, and who among us doesn’t like Johnny Cash? (I am related to the Carter Family as a distant cousin).

            I have always felt that at a point, a real rebel is forced to rebel against the rebellion because such powerful forces seem to almost always go wrong, most often usurped by the worst actors. There were good reasons to protest some of what was going on then, but when the thing went to far and became what it soon did, the time arrives to protest the protestors. Dylan did that early on and it mostly was missed. In 1967, for example, there was a Vietnam War protest set as a big event in the SF Bay Area. He was slated as being there. When asked by an independent interviewer, he said that he was going to be somewhere else.

            In the end, he is an entertainer and he knows who his audience is and he must know that he has to throw them a bone once in a while. A good, fair and quite amazing book to read on the entire history of what all went wrong is the well researched and based on the documents released by the CIA In 1976, “Acid Dreams, the Complete Social History of LSD, the CIA, the Sixties and Beyond.” It can be bought in paperback for a few bucks online. But beware, no one comes out looking clean (because no one was, or is).

        Yeah, just watch, in the next five years it’ll break down completely. Once anarchy takes root, different black tribes will unify to kill the whites, and mixed peoples. Then the most dominant black tribe will genocide the other tribes.

        • Formerly_Known_as_Whiteplight

          I remember back in the 70s and early 80s, when I met a few white South Africans, (one at a time). Each of them said what amounts to this; “You don’t understand, if we don’t keep close guard on them, they will attack each other in the streets because they are from a different tribe, or maybe they think one is getting a batter deal than they are. They are basically lawless people.”

          It probably won’t be that systematic. When the explosion comes, they’ll just be killing everyone in sight, white, black, Colored, your tribe, my tribe, whoever gets in they’re way or looks cross-eyed at them.

    • JohnEngelman

      Do blacks drop out of school? Teachers are insensitive to their needs. Do black women have children out of wedlock? Slavery broke up the black family. Are blacks more likely than whites to commit crimes? Oppression and poverty explain it. Are ghetto blacks unemployed? White businesses are prejudiced against them. Do blacks have IQ scores fifteen points lower than whites? The tests are biased. Are blacks more likely to be drug addicts? They are frustrated by white society. Are half our convicts black? The police are racist.26 There is scarcely any form of failure that cannot, in some way, be laid at the feet of racist white people.

      This kind of thinking denies that blacks should be expected to take responsibility for their own actions. More subtly, it suggests that they cannot do so. When whites make excuses for the failures of blacks-excuses they would scorn for themselves or for their own children-they treat blacks as inferiors, whether they mean to or not.

    • Hal K

      It is a mistake to use the term “racism” in a negative sense because this implies that it would be wrong for whites to look out for their group interests. Whites got into their current situation by neglecting their group interests for too long, and this has to change.

      If you mean that official anti-white discrimination in South Africa is part of the problem in South Africa then I agree with you, but only up to a point. South Africa would be doing better economically overall without so much anti-white discrimination, but blacks (perhaps correctly) perceive a benefit in having policies that transfer wealth and opportunities from whites to blacks. This gets into the question of what is really in the interests of blacks, and I think this question has no answer in any absolute sense. It is better for whites to just think about what is in their own group interests.

      Regardless, let’s ditch the term “racism.” It has too much anti-white baggage.

    So if Apartheid was so evil and horrible and people were so angry about it, why weren’t they crime rates sky high under apartheid? Why are the crime rates much higher under black rule?If anger over the causes crime, then China and Japan should be african style ghettos by now.

    • sbuffalonative

      It takes brains to make a first world society to work. It comes naturally to whites which, to blacks, makes it look easy. They look at how smoothly a white nation works and they think, ‘I can do that but the white man won’t let me’.
      So when blacks get in control, they lack the nuanced skills to keep up with basic maintenance. Without upkeep, everything wears down.
      That’s when the black man blames the white man for hording his magic ‘juju’ which makes everything run smoothly.

  • Why do I get the feeling that every single white person in that country could get exterminated, and no one is going to say anything about it, perhaps a paragraph on the back page of the paper? Maybe the TV will mention millions of south africans killed, but their race will be omitted.

    • AutomaticSlim

      From what I’ve read, they don’t just “exterminate”, they rape torture and murder with extreme prejudice (as I am sure you already know). I read one story were the blacks used motor oil and a hot iron to skin an elderly couple alive — they eventually died.
      And to make matters worse, the US is very complicit in this behavior. My own country pressured corporations to divest (I remember that from college) and other countries to treat SA as a pariah until the very sensible policy of apartheid was lifted. All the Whites in SA wanted was a separate partition for themselves but the US and the UN would hear none of it. They favored the savages and for what? So a bunch of ivory tower lefty politicians, academics and media types could feel good about themselves, while they go home to their gated communities in places like Greenwich. Hopefully there is a special place in hell waiting for people like that.

      • Jedi Mind Tricks

        On top of that South Africa won’t permit it’s white citizenry to be as well armed as say the U.S. or the Swiss.

          http://hiphopwired.com/2013/03/05/oscar-pistorius-father-accuses-south-african-government-of-being-racist-against-whites/

          Henke Pistorius, father of Oscar Pistorius, is accusing the South African government of being racist when it comes to White people. With his “Blade Runner” son free on bail since shooting his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, Henke is fed up with the lack of protection given to White people in the predominately Black country.

          Interviewed by the UK’s Daily Telegraph Sunday (March 3), Henke said that his son’s gun collection was a safety precaution. “You can’t rely on the police, not because they are inefficient always but because crime is so rife,” Henke said.

          With one of the highest violent crime rates in the world, 15,000 people in South Africa were murdered last year, under the leadership of the African Natural Congress. “It speaks to the ANC government, look at white crime levels, why protection is so poor in this country, it’s an aspect of our society.”

          Henke, his father, and three brothers collectively own 55 guns. Oscar has purchased at least six firearms, one of which he used to shoot Steenkamp, allegedly believing that she was an intruder. He’s never said that being a minority added to his fears, but the notion isn’t far-fetched.

          However, according to the ANC, claims of racism against Whites are false. “Not only is this statement devoid of truth, it is also racist,” said ANC spokesman, Jackson Mthembu. “It is sad that he has chosen to politicize a tragic incident that is still fresh in the minds of those affected and the public.”

          • Jedi Mind Tricks

            That’s refreshing. Maybe the can pull off what Executive Outcomes did in 1995. 100 white soldiers destroyed 15,000 blacks rebels in Sierra Leone. No one fights like Whites.

            If you believe the “official” figures below then the murder rate in S.Africa has declined every year since 1994. In some years it held steady but supposedly the murder rate is now only half what it was. If this is true (which I very much doubt) then must hide a huge increase in murders of whites, but for some incomprehensible reason (sarcasm) they no longer record the race of the victims.

Then parading their sin around in public in a prideful way, like the Hollywood libtards who pridefully walk around with tigers on leashes. Now that I think about it, that’s a pretty good analogy.

      In fairness, some Caribbean Islands heavily dominated by whites do moderately well, like The Bahamas. Black countries also dominated by blacks are a different case, but I’m of the idea that if whites can succesfully influence the culture of blacks, then they are able to make some decent places to live in.

      • Laager

        And that was exactly the case in South Africa – whites dominating commerce and government but gradually assimilating blacks into the mainstream whilst at the same time supporting and mentoring blacks to develop and administer themselves in their own areas.
        Enter the liberals who convinced the blacks that they were being “oppressed” and that they had every right to control all aspects of society in “their” country – having emigrated to it from the north shortly before the whites arrived in the south.
        The result of this instant emancipation is now there for everyone to see – except the liberals who don’t want to admit to what they have created.

      • Bantu_Education

        Bahamas has one of the worlds highest murder rates (36 per 100,000). I haven’t been myself but I’ve heard from friends who worked in the casinos there that the blacks (no surprises) were very sullen, aggressive and lazy. Barbados might be the best example of black self-rule and its probably no accident that they had a longer colonial period and until fairly recently a substantial white minority. They’ve also got a very successful (and expensive) tourist industry. But these are all small islands with small populations. In general, the larger the territory, the bigger its population, and the longer its independence, the worse they are. Haiti being the worst example of all.

        • Bantu_Education

          Strangely enough Haiti has one of the lowest recorded murder rates in the Caribbean, but I think thats testimony to their utter incompetence. Belize, which is busily promoting itself as a peaceful retirement haven for whites, has one of the worst murder rates of all. Having been a British colony until quite recently perhaps they are just more diligent with keeping statistics.

          • gemjunior

            I don’t think they are capable of recording anything, you’re right enough about that.

It’s probable they can’t even count, what a nightmare they are and what a great world if they were gone off the face of the planet. Ugh.

Not that I had any inkling to go, but what really sealed the deal to forever keep me away was this: One evening the nuns, who live in a razor wired compound, were told by a local that it was not safe for white people to be out and about that evening. Right, and you are asking me, a blonde, fair skinned woman to come to Haiti? Not on your life.

            M. Bello like went with heavily armed “security”. Of course they would not appear in any photo ops…as that would send the wrong impression to the lemmings about the dangers of being in a majority negroid area.

            Anyone who understands anything about what is going on in Haiti and elsewhere would be keen to listen to Dr. William Luther Pierce’s broadcast “The lesson of Haiti”. Just google it. You can find that and 307 more of his radio broadcasts on archive (dot) org. There are even transcripts of his broadcasts available. He possible was one of the greatest and wisest of all American White men in the past 100 years.

        Have been to the Bahamas twice, for a very short stays, so am not an experienced traveler there. However, my impression was that it was nothing more than a third-world country, benefiting by its proximity to the U.S., and by being English-speaking. Cannot speak to its violence, but walking around Nassau left an impression that outside of the small tourist-friendly main drag (lots of U.S. and Italian designer stores, e.g.) there was nothing special about the place. It was generally rundown, disorderly, not particularly clean. Saw NO local whites. With all the better places to go in the Caribbean, I doubt if I’ll ever return.

      A true son of SA could tell you better, but I suspect that it was only a few white traitors at the top and the voting franchise given to millions of illiterate, savage, psychotic blacks that did SA in. I’d bet the Boers and most of the English descended whites did NOT vote themselves into extinction.

    Man that apartheid is bad. But hey our diversity is still blaming everything on slavery and the KKK and Jim Crow and whatever. So the Apartheid excuse is nowhere near expiration . When the last White on earth dies diversity will still be blaming apartheid, Jim Crow, slavery, and colonialism for their primitive wretched existence. That is until they no longer have anyone left who remembers how to read and keep the T.V.s running. Which won’t be long after YT is gone really.

  • Tom Iron

    Here’s the “unaddressed issues.” The White people are stil ldoing alright. There’s a lot of violence against White people, but many times, blacks get the worst of it because many/most Whites are armed now and very aware of their surroundings at all times. Besides that, the different tribes hate each other and everyone more or less hates the indians. So things could very well get very dicey especially when mandela finally dies,

    • Bantu_Education

      “The White people are still doing alright. There’s a lot of violence against White people, but many times, blacks get the worst of it because many/most Whites are armed now and very aware of their surroundings at all times.”

  • Epiminondas

    As their nation deteriorates, the black government will become increasingly desperate to divert attention away from their own incompetency. They will attempt to create incidents that will justify killing whites as a way of uniting various black factions. An all-out war against whites could follow. But it won’t be a cake-walk for blacks. Whites are still armed, though not as heavily as before. And there are still whites in the military who will desert.

    • Bill

      They aren’t that smart. All they have to have is a wink and a nod from the blacks at the top and they will get it done, no excuse needed. They want to. They are too stupid to plan that far in advance or that intricately. It will be an impulse that expands like a prairie fire, and only needs Mrs Mandela or Mandela’s brother or whoever to give the green light.

    • Bad_Mr_Frosty

      Whites could reclaim the country in 6 months. Bantus have an IQ of 70 over in da mudderland. Tactically and strategically, blacks are next to useless. A handful a White “Nazis” like the AWB could organize a resistance and raid armories for weapons. Whether or not it will happen is anybody’s guess, but it can happen.

    • Guest

      Correct. This is what they have historically done. One recent example was the imprisonment, on “kidnapping” charges, of the idiot white missionaries in Haiti right after the earthquake. Those missionaries had tried to get a busload of kids, some orphans, and some from homes nearby, into the Dominican republic, where they would be safe from rape mobs and where they would be assured of being well fed. The social fabric of Haiti had fallen as fast as the building did when the quake hit. When the police and authorities were crippled, the people went on a mad raping, robbing, and killing spree. The simple negro mind, which is not capable of self awareness, was forced to be dimly aware of their failure of a society and a people. Out of this awareness came an urge to find white people to vent their emotions on, so they accused the whites of “stealing” their children. They could not fathom that black haitians were victimizing themselves, they had to find a white devil to focus their attentions on. The government used this scapegoat to divert people’s attention away from it’s failure and the people welcomed the scapegoat to focus their awareness somewhere other than at themselves. Self awareness is not possible for blacks unless under extreme circumstances and they always find it very unpleasant.

    The Legacy of Shaka

    How can we hope to understand the world of affairs around us if we do not know how it came to be what it is. A.L.Rowse

    Our
    knowledge of Natal in its early days has been gained from the diaries
    of ship wreck survivors dating back to the sixteenth century. They tell
    mostly a story of a fairly peaceful existence. There were occasions when
    they were attacked and killed, robbed of what little they had but most
    often they seemed to have been helped on their way to Delogoa Bay, and
    the survivors were able to barter for food. On many occasions survivors
    decided rather than carry on with the arduous journey to Delagoa Bay,
    settled in with the local tribes, took wives or husbands and were
    fruitful. Later survivors attested to this. White genes were therefore
    spread thinly through the tribes of the Transkei and Natal.

    This
    somewhat peaceful situation came to an end at the beginning of the
    nineteenth century with the ascendancy of Tshaka. What occurred has been
    very well documented by the earliest white traders and adventurers that
    had come to reside at Port Natal. They regularly had contact with
    Tshaka and kept diaries of the goings on. The brutality of that time is
    indescribable and frightening and it was carried on by Dingane after
    Tshaka’s murder,then through to Cetshwayo, only to cease with the
    latter’s defeat by the British at Ulundi in 1879.

    The acceptance
    that the Blacks have been suppressed by the Whites for 300 or 400 years
    is ludicrous and if it hadn’t been for them the fighting and slaughter
    would have just carried on. It is just not recognized what benefits the
    whites brought to the eastern side of southern Africa by suppressing the
    mayhem started by Tshaka. Tshaka legacy is that he started a system of
    murder and destruction, a way of life, that seems to be a mind set of
    many blacks today.

    Let us go back to what the diarists saw and wrote about. Mackeurtan in his book ‘The Cradle Days of Natal’ summerises,

    ’And
    yet when the nineteenth century was still young she was in the throes
    of grievous travail. Her happy streams were red with blood; her amiable
    hills a smoking shambles. Tshaka, King of the Zulus, had chosen
    systematically to obliterate the Bantu nation as far as his lithe and
    swinging regiments could carry the deadly stabbing spears. The pleasant
    pastoral people of Natal were decimated; they laughed and hunted and
    counted their herds no more’.

    Already when Francis
    Farwell, Capt King and Henry Francis Fynn arrived, the land between the
    Tugela and the Umzimvubu rivers was empty of people. The small tribes
    had been destroyed or driven away. And when the Voortrekers crossed the
    Drakensburg the land was also devoid of happy tribal life.

    The
    repercussions of Tshaka’s reign of terror spread far and wide. As tribes
    retreated from Tshaks’s hoards they in turn fell upon their neighbours
    and so there was a domino effect which spread through the Free State,

    ‘plundering
    and looting that spread back and forth across the country, a chain
    reaction of events that was to have a profound effect on the history of
    Southern Africa.’(1)

    Tshaka’s barbarity was
    inherited by Dingane and then by Cetshwayo who sent his warriors to
    battle with his rival brother, Mbuyazi. They were all ‘tarred with the
    same brush’. Cetshwayo’s rival brother had interests in the succession
    to the throne of his father Mpanda, which were of course challenged by
    Cetshwayo. The latter settle the score by annihilating the whole tribe.
    Witnessed by John Dunn, ‘in just over an hours fighting, Cetshwayo’s uSutus killed some 23000 men women and children’.

    The
    mayhem sown by Tshaka eventually resulted in the complete destruction
    of the Zulu nation. That was part of his legacy. The other part of his
    legacy was that over the sixty odd years of the dominance of the three
    Zulu Kings,Tshaka, Dingane, and Cetshwayo, a way of thinking that life
    was cheap was instilled in the people. Its was this that became part of
    the peoples consciousness that is still evident to this day.

    After
    the battle of Blood River and Dingane’s defeat, the Voortrekkers spread
    throughout the land between the Tugela and Umzimvubu Rivers. As a
    consequence of the peace that temporally reigned the Zulu families that
    had been displaced by Tshaka started to return to their former tribal
    lands as it had now become safe. And some 50000 crossed the border to
    avoid Mpanda’s new form of inhumane cruelty reminiscent of Shaka and Dingane, which had up till then been relatively benign. He once said to John W Shepstone ‘You don’t kill as we do, and the only way to govern a Zulu is to kill him .

    The
    battle of Ulundi was only 129 years ago. It was not so long ago certainly not three
    or four hundred years ago.

    • eduard

      Forget not the sheer brutality of the Zulus at Blaauwkrans and Weenen, where they raped and cut off the breasts of Voortekker women. They smashed the heads of babies against the wagon wheels. And now they call themselves “civilised”? They do not have a crown for nothing, for that is their mark of the “uncrowned beast of the field”.

      • Bantu_Education

        Not to mention the pre-ceding treachery at Dingaan’s kraal when they set upon Retief and his party (having asked them to disarm first as a sign of “respect”) and slaughtered all 80 (or 120, sources differ) it is said by impaling them on sharp sticks. This method of execution anyway was commonplace and the threat of it was used by Shaka to keep his warriors “fearless”.

        Funny thing is that just over 150 years later 5 million whites again went unarmed and trusting the deceitful blacks – this time into “Mandela’s Kraal”.

    • Jedi Mind Tricks

      That’s refreshing, and as the P.M.C. Executive Outcomes proved a hand full of whites can easily best a larger group of blacks. 100 whites shut down 15,000 blacks.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYE1s7lDBYc

    • Bantu_Education

      Shaka, however, never lifted a finger against the whites. On the contrary when a black murdered one of the first white pioneers, Shaka offered up the killer and asked another white man (either Francis Farewell, or it he who was killed) to execute him there and then. The white man refused of course so Shaka had the murderer killed anyway.

    • Laager

      Shaka’s ‘Mfecane” [black on black genocide] took place c1828.
      The Voortrekkers only started arriving in Natal c1838 from the Cape.
      Their objective was not to conquer and rule but to negotiate for land on which to settle.
      This was agreed in principle with Dingane – Shaka’s successor.
      Dingane had murdered Shaka in order to gain power.
      He then reneged on his agreement with the Voortrekkers and massacred Retief’s party of 100 when they came to conclude the land treaty – between the Tugela and Umzimvubu rivers. Later that year the Voortrekkers annihilated the Zulu in the reprisal Battle of Blood River. They did not however enter and control Zulu territory nor rule the Zulu. The battle was a marker – Leave us alone. You live in your territory and we will live in ours and not bother one another. The start of Seperate Development – i.e. Apartheid.
      The British arrived in Natal at the time of Blood River and annexed Natal to Britain. The Voortrekkers maintained their Republic of Natalia in the Pietermaritzburg area for 5 short years and then packed up and left and trekked west across the Drakensberg to escape increasing British influence. This was the reason they had left the Cape in the first place 10 years previously. They finally established their Republics in 1854 – Orange Free State – and 1856 Zuid Afrikaansche Republiek [Transvaal]. Unfortunately for them they settled on the world’s biggest deposits of diamonds and later gold. The British coveted this wealth and went to war against the Voortrekkers / Boere to gain control of it. They finally conquered the two Republics in the Anglo-Boer War of 1899-1902.
      The British then created the Union of South Africa – an African Yugoslavia – in 1910 to secure a black labour force for their mineral acquisitions. The legacy of this forced melting pot is unfolding for all to see 100 years later today.

    When white police and military did FAR LESS during apartheid, the whole world condemned them, isolated them, and worked to bring down the government. When blacks are in power, and carry on behaving like the savages they are and commit for worse incidents, and far, far more frequently, the world lauds Mandela, calls him a peace maker and wants to give him a nobel prize. No call to end his government and the horrors that occur daily on HIS watch.
    The world is insane. We worship the myriad anti-christs around the world, and work to eliminate the one race which believed in the true God, and tried to introduce him to the world.

          There are several good articles about the slaughter of White farmers on the net. Not surprisingly, this young mother had never heard a word about it. She was horrified to say the least. It seems to me that when it comes to the average American, only those of us who are part of race realism or White Nationalism know what’s really going on over there. Of course governments know and the media know, but they dare not speak of it becasue they helped bring about their senseless slaughter, thus making them complicit in their murders.

        There’s a couple of big problems with that:

        B) Why would any Boer in their right mind want to come here when we can’t even control our own cities and our government betrayed them so deeply after years of being a cold war ally.
        That being said, I would welcome them with open arms to the US if I could.

    APARTHEID FREE SOUTH AFRICA
    DEATHS IN POLICE DETENTION

    Annual reports of police watchdog the Independent Complaints Directorate (now the Independent Police Investigating Directorate, Ipid), show there were more than 4 000 deaths in police custody between 2006 and 2011, including 698 in 2006/07, 792 in 2007/08, 912 in 2008/09, 860 in 2009/10 and 797 in 2010/2011.

    Last year, 932 people died in police custody

    “CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY” APARTHEID SOUTH AFRICA
    DEATHS IN POLICE DETENTION

    The Atlas of Apartheid (A.J. Cristopher) on page 170 states that from 1960-1990 about 78,000 people were detained by the police without trial.
    In the 1960’s two to three detainees died each year until the widely publicized death of Ahmed Timol in 1971.
    No more deaths were recorded until the Soweto riots of 1976.
    There then followed “a horrific 26 death in two years”.
    The outcry over Steve Biko’s death in 1977 again brought a halt to the deaths in detention, but rose again during the 1980’s.

    In total, some 73 people died in police detention during thirty years of Apartheid.

    Today, the deaths in detention are almost a thousand per year.

    But hey…according to the ANC and their liberal useful idiots, today is far better than Apartheid, right?

    • Bantu_Education

      And many of those are whites arrested and thrown into cells full of murderous blacks for trivial or invented “offences”.

Now I can only apologize to millions of white victims compelled to leave or now trapped in that black run degenerate African hell-hole.

    • I can’t say I’m totally innocent in that regard. I was in second grade when that “We Are the World” song came out, and I begged my mother to buy it for me. Much later, I figured out that all I accomplished from doing that was helping starving Africans procreate far many more starving Africans. The only way I could ever truly absolve myself of this guilt I came to feel was if I find out that 100% of the money that USA For Africa raised never left America.

Compounding the problem are liberals pretending they are equal in areas that they are clearly (to everyone)deficient, while still superior in the areas that they really are superior. If they had to stand on their own merit, at least they could know that their successes were their own.

    As far as I know, the only nation that ever allowed a few South African Boers to immigrate was the nation of Georgia. Neither the U.S., Canada, Australia, or any EU country ever allowed Boers to enter their countries as refugees from persecution. All these countries are ruled by leftists. With the Republican party in the U.S. gushing over the prospect of “a road to citizenship” for millions of illegals, while completely ignoring the plight of the S.A. Boers, Republicans are no better than leftists.

    I don’t recall any public figure, conservative, independent, or otherwise ever speaking out about the genocide in S.A. In fact, Fox News, which has the reputation of being conservative, recently did a report on the miners’ strike. The commentator announced that this was the most violent incident to happen in S.A. since the end of Apartheid. Really? Over 3,000 murdered White people don’t count as violence?

      They won’t allow Boer refugees because it would mean criticizing Africans. And it’s impoosible for Africans to violate human rights dontcha know.

      Whites need to rise up and take control of SA by a putsch. Very simple to do for them but unfortunately they would be immediately declared part of an axis of evil by whoever was president of the US at the time.,

    Building on much fascinating archeological and historical research and offering an astute comparison of warfare in civilized and prehistoric societies, from modern European states to the Plains Indians of North America, “War Before Civilization” convincingly demonstrates that prehistoric warfare was in fact more deadly, more frequent, and more ruthless than modern war.

    Whites are shocked by black violence and often feel collectively responsible for it. They think it is the result of slavery, colonialism, and white racism.

    Actually, blacks are reverting to kind. They were only recently and inadequately restrained by white authorities.

    Over a period of centuries and thousands of years the criminal justice systems of civilized countries removed those with inclinations toward violent crime from the gene pool. This is why whites and Orientals, “the two civilized races,” have lower crime rates than third world peoples.

      I made my comment before reading yours. We said almost exactly the same thing. But the books I had in mind were “The Better Angels of Our Nature” by Steven Pinker and “The 10,000 Year Explosion” by Harpending and Cochran.

      I think its more than that. I think Africans practiced a form of dysgenics by murdering anyone who showed more intelligence than the chief, and who thus might pose a threat. Africans tend to speak very loudly, shouting to each other – it is claimed that they do so because in the village any group talking softly was assumed to be plotting against the chief. So conversations have to be loud enough for everyone to hear.

    To my white brothers and sisters in South Africa, please get out if you can. Get to Europe or North America.

    Mrs Machel said the anger sprung from “unaddressed” issues around the
    country’s apartheid past, adding: “We have to be more cautious about how
    we deal with a society that is bleeding and breathing pain”.

    South Africa’s violence has NOTHING to do with Apartheid. It’s just good old-fashioned tribal behavior. The capacity for civilization has to evolve. Europeans and Asians have slowly been evolving towards civilization for a couple of thousand years. During that time, they’ve slowly weeded out most of the violent alpha male troublemakers. And they’ve developed the qualities conducive to civilization. Africans haven’t had civilization long enough to develop those qualities. Without big, bad whitey to keep a lid on things it’s going to explode into the same thing they have in the Congo.

      Dude,

      If you think Hitler is a monster please join a communist or Bolshevik website.

    Black politicians in South Africa make similar statements all the time. What they are doing is just excusing in advance the coming full-scale genocide of whites. Then, faces streaming with crocodile tears, they will be able to self-righteously declare “we warned about this, but nobody would listen to our pleas (for more handouts)”.

    History of SA – From Statehood to Apehood

  • As a South African I would have to Agree with with Mrs Machel – unfortunately the current lot in government are not equipped intellectually to deal with any and all problems at hand and are more concerned about stealing taxpayers contributions and providing jobs for buddies.

    The SA government has not dealt with Education issues or land and farming issues in any real way and has consistently failed to do an adequate job on any front. They themselves have actually conceded to this fact. Killing striking miners is a result of ANC stupidity.

    My own opinion is that the ANC in control currently ( Zuma and co. ) are intellectually challenged and a crooked lot and just looking to control the purse strings. There are individuals in the ANC who are suitable to lead this country forward however they are few and far between and do no practice populist politics.

    My experience is that Africa works to a much slower pace than the rest of the world and that not much will change over time. Typically here as well the tendency is to vote along race lines so I do not see any valid opposition to the current ruling party anytime soon.

    And that really sums it up – a ‘party’ ! with very little attempt and will to resolve economic, educational, land, farming or mining issues.

    The detailed description (in the original article) of the rape and murder of Anene Booysen is so utterly gruesome, one has to be sitting down and not in the middle of their dinner to get through it.

    I honestly can’t help but say: What else did you White Afrikanners think was gonna happen after you turned you country over to the savages? You saw what happened to Rhodesia when you turned your collective backs on that White minority founded nation…destroyed by the bush savage. Really? You thought somehow, someway, you would be exempt from the same treatment by the savages that rule you now. Foolishness is one of the biggest faults of Whites that has been exploited, just like our intrinsic altruism, to destroy us by “The Tribe:.

    Every where its the same story: Blacks are foolishly granted equality, blacks revert back to thier neolithic area standars of behavior and run societies into the ground, blacks blame whites for all thier problems.

    Segregation, Jim Crow, Apartheid: Each was designed to keep black savagery in check, not becasue of some irrational hatred or “false” notion of superiority. Even blacks themselves were better off when they lived under white “oppression.”

  • volonteer forces from fellow whites coming to help the white south africans could and should soon be a reality. for those who go it will be valuable experience for times to come in our own countries. I know swedes who have already been down there.
