Don’t be too smug boys and girls. We here in the good old uSSA are closer to this than most folks can imagine.
Rhetorical Question: Why is it, do you suppose, when the white colonists were forced out, Africa went back to being what it was before colonization–eating each other. etc? — jtl, 419
This week, the National Assembly in South Africa ruled that white farmers will be removed from the lands that they own. The motion was proposed by Julius Malema and was overwhelmingly supported; 241 to 83.
News24 reported Malema saying before the vote was taken, “The time for reconciliation is over. Now is the time for justice.” Gugile Nkwinti, minister of water affairs, echoed, “The ANC (African National Congress) unequivocally supports the principle of land expropriation without compensation. There is no doubt about it, land shall be expropriated without compensation.”
Malema is certainly not one to follow yet many seem to. In 2016 he told his supporters that he was ‘not calling for the slaughter of white people – at least for now’. — at least for now? Seriously?
‘The time for reconciliation is over; now is the time for justice,’ EFF leader Julius Malema told parliament.
‘It is about our dignity. We do not seek revenge… all that our people ever wanted is their land to which their dignity is rooted and founded.’
Gugile Nkwinti, who was the minister of rural affairs and land reform until Monday evening (now minister of water affairs), said: “The ANC unequivocally supports the principle of land expropriation without compensation.”
“There is no doubt about it, land shall be expropriated without compensation.”
Pieter Groenewald, leader of Freedom Front Plus, asked what would be done with the land once the deal was completed.
“If you continue on this course, I can assure you there is going to be unforeseen consequences that is not in the interest of South Africa,” he warned.
Cope leader Mosiuoa Lekota said there “is a danger that those who think equality in our lifetime equates that we must dominate whites”.
“This is the PAC of ’59, it’s no longer the African National Congress,” he said as he left the podium.
Land & Livestock International, Inc is offering a “Free” week-long ranch management-planned grazing seminar-workshop.
What follows is a business model we have been following that has worked very well for us and for our clientele.
We are seeking individual ranchers to sponsor/host workshops . The sponsor/host (and spouse or key employee) get the training at his/her ranch for no charge. This is an extra special benefit to the host as his/her land will be used for the “lab” work and hands on demonstrations. This provides a great start in the implementation of his/her program.
In return, he/she takes care of the logistics involved in putting on the event. This includes arranging for the venue, booking a block of rooms for lodging, arranging for meals (if any), putting out the advertising, setting and collecting the fees and so forth.
We are then responsible for putting on the workshop.
During the interim we will each keep track of our out of pocket costs (from our end, that will be mostly travel and lodging). Then, when it is all over, we both are reimbursed our out of pocket costs and split any funds remaining 50:50.
