Is it any surprise that, because Donald Trump criticized the new land reform policy of South Africa, he’s being called a racist?
That announcement and the outrage expressed by the left has resulted in the South African government withdrawing their plan – at least for now. It’s all politics.
A background to all this is the fact that the economy of South Africa under President Ramaposa is on the decline. Increasingly, people are jobless – in some places 90 percent – and facing the fact that the cost of living is increasing. When they’re lured by government to regard the possibility of being given farmland free – it’s more than tempting.
Zimbabwe faced the same situation when President Mugabe started similar land confiscation. Thousands of farmers were dispossessed and killed, land given to inexperienced people – and farmland went fallow. The country went into economic chaos, with massive famine and sky-high inflation. That country is a disaster on all levels.
There’s no doubt South Africa faces the same fate if the current land theft proposal takes place.
Regardless of that, attacks against white farmers continue at a regular pace. Latest figures from the Agri SA agricultural union in Pretoria show black criminal gangs have killed a white farmer every five days this year. For months, the government called these deaths “burglaries gone wrong,” but there are too many to continue to do that.
The government estimates there are 31 murders per 100,000 people annually – 50 a day. Estimates are, it’s more than double that.
Genocide Watch has concluded,”There is a coordinated campaign of genocide being conducted against white farmers.”
A parallel to this is the fact that the government has passed laws to confiscate weapons from the farmers. Many did turn in their weapons, which leaves them at the mercy of gangs and the government, which in many cases are the same.
The High Court recently overturned prior gun regulations, which essentially means that any firearms without a license renewal must be turned in –bad news for some 300,000 gun owners.
People, remember that in 2012, then-President Zuma sang at a political rally: “We are going to shoot them with the machine gun, they are going to run/You are a Boer, we are going to hit them, and you are going to run/shoot the Boer.”
The Boers are the white descendants of the original Dutch settlers in South Africa.
The horror of the killing in South Africa is that they are not “just” killing someone. Deaths are the result of incredible torture of men, women and children, often with children killed in front of their parents. Virtually every white in the country is a target.
I was at an informal dinner in South Africa with about 14 area residents. They knew I was an American and didn’t mind when I asked if any of them had experienced any attacks or murders in their families.
Every single one of them said “yes.”
Author/blogger Ilana Mercer, whom I have interviewed on my radio program, recently wrote: “White men, women and children are being butchered like animals, their bodies often displayed like trophies by their proud black assassins…. An example among thousands are Kaalie Botha’s parents: ‘You can’t kill an animal like they killed my mom and dad. You can’t believe it.’
“The Achilles tendons of Kaalie’s 71-year old father had been severed by his assailants so he couldn’t flee. He was then hacked in the back until he died, his body dumped in the bush. The head of wife Joey had been bashed in by a brick, wielded with such force that the skull cracked like an egg.’ Just one horrific instance of farm torture and murders.”
Thousands of white South African farmers have applied for asylum in Australia and many have been granted. Some 15,000 have applied to Russia for assistance and that appears to be successful.
Why has the United States been silent about welcoming these desperate people? A blaring hint is that the liberals in this country consider them “racists” and so is anyone who supports them. They have no compunction about calling our president a racist just asking for an investigation into the South African land expropriation plans.
