Because the victim was black and his murderers were white, there was a national outcry about the crime that continued for years afterwards. During the 2000 election campaign the incident was even used for shamelessly partisan purposes — by the Democrats, needless to say.
When the races are reversed, however, silence reigns. When a white farmer was chained to the back of a pickup truck and dragged to death by murderous blacks, there was no great outcry. Outside of his immediate neighborhood in South Africa, hardly anyone was even aware of the crime.
He’s just another statistic. He’s one of thousands of white victims of ethnic cleansing in South Africa.
The process has become so blatant that the leader of the youth wing of the African National Congress implicitly acknowledged that the current regime exercises a measure of political control over it.
“All whites are criminals,” he said. “We will take the land back. Without compensation.”
But that’s not evidence of racism, since it was uttered by a black man. By definition, non-whites cannot possibly be racist.
My guess is that what he was saying can be excused as “redistributive justice against the historical oppressor”. Or some similar Marxist cant.
Many thanks to Vlaams Belang for uploading this video. Warning: the images and descriptions of violence in this clip may be disturbing to sensitive viewers:
From the notes accompanying the video:
This is a 10-minute extract from the stunning documentary ‘War of the Flea’ from director Rian van der Walt published in 2011. It contains shocking information on the genocide that is being carried out under ANC rule in the ‘new’ South-Africa against the white minority of the ‘Afrikaners’ by farm killings or ‘plaasmoorde’.
It was shown at an international conference in the European Parliament in February 2012, in the presence of farmers’ spokesman Henk Van de Graaf and hosted by Philip Claeys, member of the European Parliament for the Vlaams Belang party.
The full movie is 93 minutes. Did you see it already on your TV-screen? We didn’t, either. Compare this to the worldwide hysteria in the time of ‘apartheid’ and draw your own conclusions...
(Note: ‘war of the flea’ means ‘guerilla warfare’).
