But it would surely be considered “racist” to point out that, before the European colonists arrived, the indigenous were eating each other. And, now that they have purged themselves of the European colonists. they’ve gone back to eating each other. They need to bring apartheid back to restore the peace. Of course, the meddlesome uSSA would never allow that. But, but, but…they hate us because we are free (sarcasm). — jtl, 419

After years of government-linked slaughter, torture, abuse, and hatred against embattled European-descent farmers in South Africa, the radical government might have finally gone too far by openly vowing to steal their land without compensation. Now, it seems, the world is taking notice. Whether it is too little, too late remains to be seen.
Australian authorities, for one, are speaking out, while also seeking ways to bring in the persecuted farmers before the situation deteriorates further. Even establishment-controlled media outlets, which were obsessed with South Africa under the Apartheid system but now pretend not to see it, have been forced to cover the dismal conditions developing in the so-called “Rainbow Nation.”
The openly racist and communist government leaders of South Africa have been left with few options but to claim that anyone who notices reality is “racist.” But the truth is coming out anyway.
Last week, Australian Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton sparked headlines around the world by highlighting the systemic atrocities being faced by white South African farmers. “If you look at the footage and read the stories, you hear the accounts, it’s a horrific circumstance they face,” Dutton was quoted as saying in media reports, referring to European-descent farmers in South Africa known as Boers.
He also said they needed help. “I do think, on the information that I’ve seen, people do need help and they need help from a civilized country like ours,” continued the Australian official, suggesting that his department was looking for ways to facilitate the immigration of the Western-minded Christian Boers into his nation. “The people we’re talking about want to work hard, they want to contribute to a country like Australia.”
Unlike many of the migrants from pagan or Islamic cultures that have been flooding into the Western world in a globalist-orchestrated mass-migration campaign to de-Christianize Christendom and smash nation-states, the Christian and Western-minded Boers would fit right in. “We want people who want to come here, abide by our laws, integrate into our society, work hard, not lead a life on welfare,” Dutton added. “And I think these people deserve special attention and we’re certainly applying that special attention now.”
Until recently, the establishment was able to keep the looming storm-clouds over South Africa hidden from the world. Then, last month, the South African Parliament voted to change the Constitution to allow the regime to seize white-owned farms to “redistribute” them without even paying the owners a penny — even if their forefathers settled the land 14 generations ago and no known human had ever set foot on it before then.
After the horrors in neighboring Zimbabwe caused by the same racist and communist policies, that open call for confiscation of land, it seems, sparked renewed global interest in South Africa. Now, people all over the world are paying attention.
Unsurprisingly, the ruling South African government — an alliance of the Communist Party and its fronts such as the African National Congress and an umbrella for unions — feigned outrage over the comments. “The South African government is offended by the statements which have been attributed to the Australian Home Affairs Minister and a full retraction is expected,” the South African Foreign Ministry said in a statement, accompanied by a number of tired accusations of “racism” by top officials.
But in Australia, the cat is now out of the bag. “I think Peter Dutton was absolutely right that under our humanitarian immigration program there ought to be a place for people who are being persecuted in this way,” said former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, a liberty-minded Christian famous for opposing the establishment. “If the boot was on the other foot we’d call it racism of the worst sort. I think we should acknowledge this as a very, very serious issue of justice, fairness, and freedom for people trying to do the right thing — feed their country.”
While Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop denied that special plans were being made to fast-track immigration for persecuted South African farmers, she did express concerns about the regime’s efforts to steal land based on race. “The message that we urge upon the South African government is that they seek to ensure the security of all their citizens and we certainly urge the South African government that any changes to land ownership for example are not disruptive to the economy nor lead to violence,” Bishop said, adding that concerns had been raised with the government there.
In the United States, word of the dire situation facing the Christian Afrikaner people — descendants primarily of Dutch, German, and French but forged into a unique nation in Southern Africa — is spreading quickly too. A petition asking President Donald Trump to offer asylum has garnered thousands of signatures and widespread national and international attention.
Among other concerns, the petition notes that the government-backed land heists will “dispossess victims of their history, culture, farms, property, and jobs.” As such, it calls on the U.S. government to “intercede” by admitting them as refugees to avoid “a complete genocide of South Africa’s white population.” Similar petitions and efforts are being made in Europe to allow white South Africans to obtain asylum there.
When European-descent South Africans voted to surrender political power and control over their own destiny in the face of a relentless terror and propaganda campaign backed globalists and communists worldwide, they were offered a number of guarantees. Those included the security of private property rights, the ability to operate their own Afrikaans-language schools and cultural institutions, and the ability to preserve their own unique culture, language, and identity.
Almost from the start, the Soviet-controlled ANC — even Nelson Mandela was a secret member of the Kremlin-controlled South African Communist Party’s Central Committee — broke those promises. But now, the “Second Phase” of the communist revolution has officially started. Most recently, the vote in Parliament to change the Constitution would allow theft of land without compensation. But the premise purporting to justify the mass theft — the idea that white South Africans “stole” the land — is absolutely and provably false.
The scheme to steal it anyway, proposed by genocidal Marxist Julius Malema of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party, passed 241 against 81. “We must stop being cowards,” fumed Malema, calling whites “criminals” who allegedly “stole” land. “We must stop working around the white minorities who are governed by the fear of the unknown when it comes to the question of land expropriation without compensation.”
Last year, Malema said he was “not calling for the slaughter of white people — at least for now.” But like other racists and communists, Malema has long been known for singing songs advocating the extermination of the white minority. More recently, he boasted of “cutting the throat of whiteness,” an especially ghoulish proclamation in light of the barbaric murders of thousands of South African farmers and their families since they voted to surrender political control.
Media reports and warnings about the situation in South Africa have been growing louder for years. In fact, The New American magazine warned about what was coming in the late 1980s and early 1990s in what now appear to be practically prophetic articles by William F. Jasper and others. This publication sounded the alarm in a cover story more recently as early as 2012, when the world’s leading authority on genocide warned of a genocidal campaign against white farmers that evidence suggested was linked to the regime.
“There is direct evidence of [South African] government incitement to genocide,” explained Dr. Gregory Stanton of Genocide Watch after a fact-finding mission to the country. Of course, the former anti-Apartheid activist’s warning was ignored by the establishment media. But it was hardly open to dispute — after all, the president of South Africa at the time, Communist Party veteran Jacob Zuma, was openly singing songs advocating the slaughter of white farmers. The current president, Cyril Ramaphosa, is also guilty.
With the latest comments from Australian leaders, the establishment press in America has finally been forced into covering the issue as well. Both the New York Times and the Washington Post, two of America’s leading left-wing establishment propaganda outlets, have written on it. Primarily, though, the coverage has sought to downplay the enormity of the crisis, with some particularly grotesque commentaries even ridiculing the victims.
Others alarmed about the plight of Afrikaners in South Africa have argued that independence, rather than a mass exodus, is the only possible option. “The world is witnessing the beginning of the end of South Africa as a viable country,” explained Harry Booyens, author of AmaBhulu: The Birth and Death of the Second America recounting the history of South Africa while interweaving the story of his ancestors. “The only possible means of long term survival for non-Blacks is formal secession.”
“The world supported the split of the Sudan into two countries based on race; it is now inevitable in South Africa,” he told The New American in an e-mail. “The only question is how many will have to die before the inevitable happens. The Western countries do not have the moral guts to accept 4.5 million white refugees; it is impossible to kill 4.5 million white people without using gas chambers, it is impossible to turn 4.5 million White Christian Westerners into African subsistence farmers, especially when a government has stolen all their land to start with.”
“So, the only possibility is secession,” Booyens said.
The New American will explore the topic of independence for the Western Cape, where Afrikaans speakers are still in the majority, in an upcoming article. A number of organized efforts to achieve self-determination, including within a defined territory in the interior of South Africa where Afrikaners represent a strong majority, are already underway. And the Afrikaners have allies among some of South Africa’s other people groups, including the Khoi and the San, who have also been terrorized and bullied under the Communist-ANC regime.
Either way, the fact that the plight of Afrikaners is now in the world media suggests the issue is coming to a head. Americans, as the closest cousins in the world to embattled Afrikaners, must pay attention. Plus, the fate of the Afrikaners has been widely described by analysts as the canary in the coalmine for Western civilization. The stakes are that high.

A Handbook for Ranch Managers. In keeping with the “holistic” idea that the land, the livestock, the people and the money should be viewed as a single integrated whole: Part I deals with the management of the natural resources. Part II covers livestock production and Part III deals with the people and the money. Not only would this book make an excellent basic text for a university program in Ranch Management, no professional ranch manager’s reference bookshelf should be without it. It is a comprehensive reference manual for managing the working ranch. The information in the appendices and extensive bibliography alone is worth the price of the book.
