The Ultimate Irony

In southern Africa a racial minority is being subjected to discrimination, oppressive racial quotas in education, violence, rape, and murder at the hands of the dominant racial group.

I refer, of course, to the whites of South Africa.

What? You didn’t know about any of this? That’s no surprise, because the major media outlets observe a code of silence on the subject. What is happening in South Africa is rarely mentioned in the mainstream press of the Western democracies.

According to current multicultural orthodoxy, what is being done to white South Africans is not even an example of racism, since non-whites can never be racists. It simply isn’t possible, according to the accepted definition of the word.

Here’s an overview of the topic from praag.co.uk:

South Africa, a planet for dark people in Mercedes-Benzes

In South Africa the cliché, “truth is stranger than fiction”, is heard almost every day. More recently, the country has become so bizarre in its zealous pursuit of multiculturalism and affirmative action that some days one feels as if this must be another planet where normal terrestrial principles no longer apply.

As everyone knows, South Africa is the most Western and European country in Africa. The other day I was walking through the military museum in Johannesburg where tanks, cannons and aeroplanes are lovingly preserved, even German ones belonging to our former enemy in two world wars. South African military aircraft from the First World War onwards used to have the old Dutch “Prince flag” on the tail, the orange white and blue banner brought here by the father of our nation, the Dutchman Jan van Riebeeck who arrived on 6 April 1652.

We Afrikaners have therefore been living in this country as long as the Americans have in America. Like Americans, albeit on a smaller scale, we have been involved in European affairs and wars for hundreds of years. Until 1994, as the famous Harvard political scientist, Samuel P. Huntington, also observed, we imagined ourselves being “part of the West”.

Next to the war museum is an imposing sandstone memorial built by the British for their dead during the Anglo-Boer war of 1899-1902, causing a young man in our company to remark: “This could have been in Europe! It reminds me of the Brandenburg Gate.”

However, the coming to power of the ANC in our country has changed all that. We have one of the most anti-Western governments in the world, consistently voting with China, Africa and the Arab countries at the UN. Not only that, but people of European descent like Afrikaners or the English South Africans have been legally and otherwise defined as foreigners in their own country.

Whereas non-Western minorities in Europe or North America enjoy special privileges, protection and subsidies from taxpayers, exactly the converse applies in South Africa. We, the Western minority in our formerly Western country with its European architecture, laws and system of government, are being punished for not being truly African, really black. In the Orwellian terminology of the new government, we are the “non-designated group”. Designated people are blacks, coloureds (of mixed race) and Indians.

The myriad laws that place restrictions on whites represent the culmination of American affirmative action, which is also being applied in some European countries such as Britain and France. The difference is that whites are still the majority in most of the Western world. So the injustice of these affirmative-action laws - or “positive discrimination” as the French call it – only affect a minority of whites, unlike here where all whites have to bear it.

Many people in the world today wonder what it will be like for Europeans to become minorities in their own countries, given present demographic patterns. Recently in Japan more nappies were sold for the elderly than for babies and that day surely cannot be far off in Germany, Italy and many other European societies where the indigenous populations are set to age and decline.

South Africa today represents a laboratory for a future world, predicted by UN demographers, in which whites will find themselves in the minority in most countries. That future planet in which Africans will number two billion and Europeans less than 500 000 will come soon, in about 30 to 40 years.

For one thing, it will be world of racial quotas, as in South Africa. Sports teams will only be allowed to have a small percentage of whites. Places at university will be limited for whites and there will be “racial verification” to make sure that people do not lie about their race when applying for university or for jobs in both the government and the corporate sector.

I predict this because a few weeks ago a student who had gained admission to the medical school of Stellenbosch University lost her place after it was ascertained that she was white and had mistakenly crossed the box for “coloured”. The Stellenbosch medical school reserves only 30% of all places for whites; the rest must go to the “designated groups”. The town of Stellenbosch was founded by our forebears in the seventeenth century and the university dates from the nineteenth. The university there was built, developed and funded by Afrikaners through their taxes and private donations. And yet today the children and grandchildren of Afrikaners are not allowed to study there or study there in large numbers, simply because they are of European descent.

Does that not seem like the ultimate irony? Or the grossest form of injustice, far grosser than, say, segregation as it existed in the American South or in many parts of British-colonial Africa including, of course, South Africa?...

I have a dear friend from South Africa, he lived on a farm someplace pretty remote, outskirts of Pretoria. He was only 7 at the time, but he and his family had to defend his farm like Rorke's Drift. Just the 5 of them fighting of 20 or so blacks who eventually succeded in burning down their farm and crops. This of course prompted his parents to leave the country and head to Australia. Little did they know whites aren't treated much better, after all, we take pride in the fact that we're the most multicultural country on Earth.

I'm a white South African and still live in the country. Life has become much more precious than any westerner could ever understand...ok, maybe for the time being.

I live for the the day when whites embrace a political identity. Individuals can't win a fight against entire races.

Here in the UK the liberal multi-culti zealots also use the term "positive discrimination" (i.e. what you or I would call simply "discrimination").

It's noticeable that most adverts here feature at least one ethnic minority, generally in a positive way.

Conversely, when the notoriously left wing BBC ran a TV advert warning against TV licence fee non-payment, all the actors portraying those who hadn't paid their fees were white.

Another example: when there was a risk of bird flu here a year or so ago there was a Government sponsored TV advert explaining what we should do to reduce the risk of spreading the infection. Of course the character showing us how not to behave was white. In one scene the white man sneezed in a lift (elevator) without covering up his nose and mouth, thereby filling the lift space with the infection. Then an elderly black couple got into the lift and in so doing became infected due to whitey's carelessness.

I'm wondering what the situation is like in South Africa?

I do feel sorry for the Afrikaners and for other European people in South Africa

Ever since I was aware of Julius of ANC and his "Kill the White"-song, I realized the hellish ideology that is being allowed to exist in South Africa, and not only there but among Africans everywhere in Europe, and in the US. So sad. Horribly hellish.

You, who might not be familiar with this hate-ideology that is alive and well everywhere, or just slumbering, waiting to rise up, there is all the reason to be warned.

has written a lot on the subject, and would be somewhere to start for those who yet need information on the subject.

Having achieved their Leftist goals for South Africa the MSM is now completely silent about the result that followed. We never hear a word on this subject now. A virtual news blackout. They don't want us to see the result.

I wish all of you SAs could form a country of your own where you could live in peace.

Propaganda is the best tool of today's world, we see it in the palestinian-israel campaign and also we see it in the Southafrica affair. Whites have been racialy targeted, killed in gruesome ways and blacks want to erradicate them, this is racial cleansing. And who is interested? noone, because is whites who are the target. Mandela is the first to support it yet is seen like a messiah... just watch in youtube the video of him singing "kill the boer"... wait! is trendy now, eh? have you seen bono singing it too?
But who complains?

So this blog is no longer about opposition to Islam, but about protecting the White Race? Not to be PC, but these are two different things.

Gee thanks for your compassion.

Kathryn said...

Is there another race that has any chance or inclination to battle Islam? We've done it before - hence the name of this blog, and we're likely to have to do it again. So how about a little compassion for SA if it's not asking too much?

Please, watch closely....


Forces united

The ideology of genocide on people of European descent is combined with islam. You
get two in one!

"What is happening in South Africa against the White population is unspeakable. Savage. And no one will speak of it.

Facebook jihad on South African whites: Ahmed El Saud @ Chris: we will do the job for your people. We will kill the whites at a agreed price per head. We deliver all heads and expect raw cash, gold or diamonds as payment.

Baby heads are same as grown up's in price.

We will give you instructions on how to arrange the payment and the terms and conditions. Do not worry now. We provide also body guards if you are in need. Just speak out. We can bring in planes and do it with poison spray but your people must be out of the area."

"Whites in South Africa are keenly aware of the plans to kill them. They expect mass killings to begin very soon after the death of Mandela, but to tell this to the world is a waste of energy.

More than 3,000 white farmers have already been murdered, and Genocide

Watch lists the Boer farmers in South Africa as victims of genocide -- but the media couldn't care less.

Malema has praised Zimbabwe's murderous seizure of white-owned farms as "courageous and militant."

White South Africans know what's coming."

- Ugly!

Will the governments of Europe, Canada and the US sit quietly watching..? Or looking the other way?

Looking to race is...exactly why the situation in South Africa has developed as it has.

One must seek justice for the individual, not for the race.

It is true that muslims nowadays ally with Blacks in South Africa, but traditionally, Arabs were very anti-Black. Think of South Sudan. Is there a need to feed that alliance? Is there a need to drive away non-muslim people of color?

Strictly speaking, if the white people of South Africa wanted to save Apartheid, it would have made sense not to ally to Israel, but to the Arabs of North Sudan.

"Yes, like the 1949 Cato Manor genocide of Indians, which the whites immediately jumped in and nipped in the bud.

Hell, they even kill their fellow Africans in all these xenophobic attacks.

But, that said, in Darfur, the islamics are doing the killing. I reckon these blacks who are being incited to kill the whites are just convenient drones. The whites are standing in the way of the muslims taking over, but once enough of the whites have been slaughtered, they will turn on the blacks.

I think all us whites must just leave anyway. Not because we're scared, just more for helping our European brothers & sisters in the West and maybe just a little bit of karma.

I reckon Africans will be better off if China takes over Africa rather than the islamics, because then all they'll have to deal with would be sweat shops (and no strikes allowed) and no freedom of speech (consider Tiananmen Square)... Because after all, in Darfur, the blacks are referred to as "abd", or slaves and the islamics are 'winning'.

I must say, those burkas will burn like crazy if the blacks were to necklace them the way they do their fellow Africans.
