Shocking Documentary on Lawlessness in Johannesburg

Louis Theroux, Law and Disorder in Johannesburg 

The beginning to Part 4 of the documentary is especially shocking when a man who is a murderer, car hijacker and house robber is interviewed.

He mentions that his last robbery was in Benoni the night before where he 'took' four cars.

The interviewer asks how he got the cars.

"We take it with a gun, what can we do?"

And to hurt people?

"Ja, the people, I will show you with your last born" and by this he means a child or baby.

"Take him to shower or to hot shower" meaning that he puts the baby under boiling water.

"Or to the oven, microwave oven. I put like this to the oven" and indicates forcefully pushing a baby inside.

"Then you see I want money."

"Take your child, I put in oven and make oven on" he indicates turning the knob.

"Or I take your wife and I put a knife here" and puts a finger across his throat. Then pulls his finger across.

"Like example, then you see the blood."

"They feel f**** all, even to kill somebody" says one of the black security guards who is with the interviewer.

The end of the documentary also provides some interesting answers to the questions of the interviewer.

'Whites excluded from charities'

(Article from Friends4Humanity)

Nelson Mandela’s ANC government announced earlier this year the implementation of the ‘second transition’ policy. The ‘second transition’ is defined as a radical call to finalize “economic freedom”. The ANC regime chose to roll out this second transition with a death blow to the most vulnerable in the European Minority community, the:
  • impoverished;
  • displaced;
  • elderly;
  • traumatized; and
  • children.
Ironically, they chose to use the same strategies to marginalize the European Minority as Hitler used against the Jews. Over the past 20 years they have implemented many programs, some legislated and some not, that have as their aim the destruction of the European minority. These policies have been held up as redistribution of wealth and transformation. However, they are true to communistic guidelines with the aim to bring into line those who do not align with their views.

These include the exclusion of the European minority from business ownership, trade and employment. The European minority is also excluded from accessing tertiary education as well as school education in their home language. Their defense mechanisms have been removed through disarmament, and the removal of the effective policing structures that protected them, which places them in grave danger of being tortured and attacked.

As a result of these strategic economic policies, approximately a million of the European Minority members are now displaced and living in abject poverty, with a large percentage of the remaining members barely surviving financially. The second transition will push them over the edge into displacement. However, the immediate crisis is but two weeks away, a countdown that do not bode well for the most vulnerable members who have already been marginalized and traumatized. They will loose the one meal a day that is currently supplied by retail food chains.

The government has systematically removed any assistance or aid they may get. They are excluded from receiving state welfare or other benefits. Furthermore, Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and charities are precluded from allocating more than 9% (the demographic proportion of Europeans) of their resources to ease their plight. Government enforces this through the interception of NGO and International donor funding by the President’s Office. As a result, the European minority ethnic group affected by policies of redress has been left with no hope and absolutely no opportunities to work their way out of the situation they find themselves in.

Now the final blow

Nelson Mandela’s ANC gazetted new legislation, effective December 2, 2012 that will reduce the Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) status of companies that donate to charities assisting minority members. BEE status effectively ensures that a company can obtain business in South Africa. 
This will affect orphanages, displaced people camps, old age homes, Safe houses and NGO’s similar to Childline and Rape Crisis. Although many are already forced through current legislation to refuse people assistance, the new legislation will also force them to abandon the current European Minority members.

Charities need funds to help others. Companies need funds to donate to charities. This well-orchestrated assault will effectively break the cycle and remove any recourse to destitute and vulnerable European Minority members. This will force orphanages, safe houses and old age facilities to now abandon Europeans and prohibit companies to supply the only meal to many homeless and displaced people, including the elderly and children.

Deliberately inflicting on the European Minority conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part. This in itself meets one of the five criteria to proof genocide, notwithstanding that any of the criteria should be met to meet the definition of genocide. There are detailed examples of actions taken by the South African government that meet all criteria below:
  1. Killing members of the group; or
  2. Causing serious bodily or mental harm to the group; or
  3. Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; or
  4. Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; or
  5. Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.

Genocide Watch determined during an intensive investigation during July this year that there is evidence that meet the first criteria; murder, rape, mutilation and torture. South African police fail to investigate or solve many of these murders, which are carried out by organized gangs, often armed with weapons that police have previously confiscated. 

The racial character of the killing is covered up by a SA government order prohibiting police from reporting murders by race. Instead the crisis is denied and the murders are dismissed as ordinary crime, ignoring the frequent mutilation of the victims’ bodies, a sure sign that these are hate crimes.

Police abuse and intimidation have proven to cause serious physical and mental harm to the European Minority, which meets the second crieteria, as set out in our article, Police: Protector or Predator?

The first three criteria automatically bring about conditions to ensure the forth and fifth criteria, compounded by deliberate actions and policies by the ANC government to ensure effectiveness.

Operation Final Countdown

Friends 4 Humanity is launching Operation Final Countdown to attempt to prevent a human catastrophe of epic proportions that will paralyze the most vulnerable members of the European Minority.

It is imperative that we create a safety net to ensure the protection of the 96,000 orphans, undetermined amount of elderly, children in safe houses and approximately a million displaced people that will be affected by the new legislation when companies implement measures to ensure their BEE status.

Companies will redirect their funding to charities that comply, to comply; charities will have to immediately abandon the European Minority Beneficiaries. The ANC government ensured that these abandoned and vulnerable persons are left without recourse by limiting the timeframe between announcement and implementation to three weeks. It is anticipated that they will implement this legislation in the same manner as they have done with similar human rights abusive legislation, ignore opposition and force compliance.

We trust in the integrity of people’s convictions to oppose these racist policies and we established a task team in South Africa to immediately contact charities who refuse to abandon their European beneficiaries to arrange for alternative funding and determine which of these charities will be able to accommodate people left destitute.

It is envisaged that the majority of the abandoned orphans and children from places of safety will end up in displaced camps or on the street. As previously reported, these children are favored by Nigerian and police child prostitution syndicates who use the lack of human trafficking legislation in South Africa to manage their despicable operations. 

Once on the streets, we have 48 hours to find them before they are kidnapped and subjected to the 21 day cycle of abuse, gang raped and force-fed drugs. After this, these children are scarred for life and few are able to recover. We hope to arrange with charities that choose to comply with the new legislation not to abandon the children but transfer them to charities or facilities that will accommodate them.

It is expected that some families will ensure the care of their elderly but it has to be realized that many family members of the elderly are already marginalised  homeless or displaced, hence their stay in charity based old age homes, which translates into many of the elderly also ending up in over extended displaced camps with little or no hygienic facilities or food sources. As with the case of the orphans, we will attempt find alternative funding for charities and to relocate the elderly to these facilities.

The estimated million displaced people face the loss of the one meal a day or every second day, that is currently provided to them by benefactors, which are mainly soup kitchens sponsored by retail food chains. The benefactor companies will have no choice but to withdraw donations from these soup kitchens as it will impact their operations if their BEE status is affected. 

The ANC government effectively reaches their genocidal goal by starving the displaced Europeans and orchestrating conditions to ensure their demise.

Ironically, this legislation was announced soon after the visit by Hillary Clinton to South Africa to strengthen economic ties. A new initiative by USAid was also announced that will make $150-million available to small and medium businesses in South Africa, notwithstanding that this will exclude, through legislation any members of the European Minority. Mrs Clinton also hailed the ANC for their contribution to human rights in South Africa, despite clear evidence of the contrary.

Another irony is the honor bestowed on President Zuma, who received honorary citizenship of Texas and the freedom of the City of Houston in 2011. Whether this is done out of ignorance or political manipulation, only Americans can enforce adequate pressure on their government to not only stop enabling the ANC but to intervene.

How can you help?

It is envisaged that the ANC government will strongly oppose any remedial assistance to these destitute children, elderly and displaced. The only way we can ensure their safety and security and that of the volunteers and charities that wish to participate in the intervention, will be an extremely visible and public awareness campaign. This can only be achieved with your help, please help us to help this vulnerable section of the European minority. If you are unable to help, please tell someone that can.

Your donations will ensure the funding for charities that refuse to comply and will be crucial to establish immediate food relief as well as long term solutions for the approximately million displaced people.

The Stanton Commission of Inquiry, through Genocide Watch, will investigate and determine who exactly is behind the Genocide of the European Minority. Your public support and donations to the Commission and Secretariat will ensure intervention, to not only end these atrocities, but launch long term solutions and secure International legal action against the perpetrators.

We established the Genocide Intervention Fund and trust you will support it –

Article from 1994 - "Silk Tie Revolutionaries"

(Excerpts from The New American)

Silk Tie Revolutionaries
Written by  William F. Jasper

Conservatives have long railed at the communist/liberal-left axis that has formed the most visible base of the worldwide attack on South Africa: the Soviet Union, Cuba, Libya, Mozambique, and Zimbabwe; the United Nations, the World Council of Churches, the NAACP, the Congressional Black Caucus, Jesse Jackson, Andrew Young, and the whole network of professional civil rights/human rights radicals that grew out of the 1960s antiwar movement; and, of course, the literati and glitterati of the national press, academe, and Hollywood. 

These formidable elements, marching under the camouflage of the anti-apartheid banner, have comprised a force that has done much to bring South Africa to its knees. But all of the AK-47s, mortars, bombs, Soviet advisors, terrorist training camps, assassinations, demonstrations, and biased broadcasts of these revolutionists combined could not, of themselves, have brought about the transformation in South Africa of a vicious terrorist group and its titular head from the status of political outlaws to that of global cult heroes and de facto heads of state. No, these subversive elements merely provided the "pressure from below," an essential ingredient, but not sufficient of itself without "pressure from above" to produce the revolutionary transformation.

CFR Workings 

In the case of South Africa, this "pressure from above" came from the same cabal that has betrayed and overthrown so many of our anti-communist allies since World War II — China, Cuba, Nicaragua, Iran, and Rhodesia, to name a few. The leading cabalists in this ongoing betrayal come from the highest echelons of the international banking and corporate elite of Europe and America and their political front groups. 

Foremost among these fronts have been the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) in the United States, and its "sister bodies," the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) in Great Britain, the Institute Francais des Relations Internationales in France, the Forschungsinstitut der Deutschen Gesellschaft fur Auswartige Politik in Germany, and the South Africa Institute for International Affairs (SAIIA) in South Africa.

In the United States, the CFR elitists have virtually run the federal executive branch since World War II, controlling the White House and especially using the Departments of State, Treasury, and Defense to advance their globalist "new world order" designs.

International Pincer Attack

For decades the CFR's agenda on South Africa has been outlined in its journal, Foreign Affairs, and has been put into effect by such CFR operatives as Henry Kissinger, Cyrus Vance, George Shultz, and Warren Christopher. These agents, along with their colleagues in the media and their counterparts in Europe, were able to orchestrate an incredible international pincer attack, combining political blackmail, economic extortion, and public opinion pressure to paint South Africa as the most execrable nation on earth. 

Their high-level pressure helped force the South African government to make one deadly concession after another to the communist enemies of all Africans, whether black, white, Indian, or colored. At the same time, communist, Marxist, and other "Third World" regimes were (and still are) slaughtering their peoples by the hundreds of thousands and oppressing millions in the most unspeakable manner, with little international public outcry, diplomatic repercussions, or economic sanctions whatsoever.

Examples of the CFR conspiratorial duplicity against South Africa are too legion to enumerate here at any length. Following are but a few:

 • In 1959, the Pan Africanist Congress (PAC), a violent offshoot of the ANC, was organized in the Johannesburg offices of the United States Information Service (USIS) under Secretary of State John Foster Dulles (a CFR founder) and his successor at State, Christian Herter (CFR).

 • In 1965, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, under the direction of its president, Joseph E. Johnson (CFR), brought forth a detailed plan advocating a military invasion of South Africa by the United Nations. The Carnegie Endowment, a vital adjunct of the CFR, has continued its anti-South Africa attacks non-stop. In the Winter 1986-87 issue of the Carnegie Endowment journal Foreign Policy, William Minter militantly charged that "there is no alternate way, short of Western military action, to induce the apartheid regime to negotiate its surrender."

 • The giant Ford and Rockefeller Foundations, always run by CFR members, have unstintingly lavished enormous sums on left-wing South African groups for decades.

 • Vice President Walter Mondale (CFR) stated in May 1977 that President Carter (CFR) would give high priority to "smashing" South Africa's apartheid. The Carter regime soon validated that statement. On October 27, 1977, President Carter ordered an immediate arms embargo on South Africa because of its "blatant deprivation of basic human rights." At the same time, Carter was pursuing normalization of relations with Red China and expanded relations with the Soviet Union, both sterling champions of "basic human Rights."

 • In 1978 the South African Foreign Ministry released a report showing that, in the previous three years, Western governments had provided about 69 million rand (at that time about $79 million) to the SWAPO (South West Africa People's Organization) terrorists alone. The U.S. government's contribution had been around $3.9 million.

 • A 1984 article in Foreign Affairs by Thomas G. Karis (CFR) signaled the Establishment's open support for South African communists and terrorists. Praising the thoroughly communist-dominated ANC and United Democratic Front, Karis glowed at the prospect of a South Africa governed "by individuals like ... Desmond Tutu, Oliver Tambo, and Nelson Mandela."

 • On September 8, 1985, President Reagan signed Executive Order 12532, which declared: "I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States, find that the policies and actions of the Government of South Africa constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the foreign policy and economy of the United States and hereby declare a national emergency to deal with the threat." 

Thus, South Africa was officially deemed to be a greater "threat" than the Soviet Union or China.

 • In 1986 a comprehensive study by Rand Afrikaans University's Institute for American Studies provided details concerning the funneling of hundreds of millions of U.S. tax dollars by the Reagan State Department into the coffers of radical, pro-Soviet, pro-ANC groups in South Africa. Some $200 to $300 million were channeled through the U.S. Agency for International Development, the U.S. Information Agency, the National Endowment for Democracy, the International Committee of the Red Cross, and other agencies.

 • Also in 1986, Assistant Secretary of State Chester Crocker (CFR) described the ANC as "freedom fighters," marking an official about-face from State's previous designation of the ANC as a terrorist group. Crocker, author of the Reagan Administration's disastrous South Africa policy of "constructive engagement," first outlined the CFR game plan in a 1980 article for Foreign Affairsentitled "South Africa: Strategy for Change."

 • Due to U.S. bludgeoning, South Africa signed the Nkomati Accords, the Lusaka Accords, and the Namibia Accords, all of which involved the abandonment and betrayal of South Africa's most important military allies: Savimbi's UNITA guerillas in Angola, the RENAMO forces in Mozambique, and the South West Africa Territorial Forces in Namibia.

 • On January 28, 1987, Secretary of State George Shultz (CFR), in a high-profile event, met in Washington, DC with the ANC's top terrorist, Oliver Tambo. That night, Tambo declared to Ted Koppel (CFR) on ABC's Nightline that he and Shultz had come to a "meeting of minds" and shared a common goal for South Africa.

 • On February 5, 1987, M. Peter McPherson (CFR), director of the U.S. Agency for International Development, announced a Reagan Administration pledge of $93 million in new aid to Botswana, Angola, Mozambique, Tanzania, Lesotho, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe.
These Marxist "front line" states were involved in deadly guerilla warfare against South Africa and provided sites for Soviet-backed terrorist training camps.

 • The Clinton State Department admitted last August that it was assigning U.S. personnel to train bodyguards for Mandela and other ANC officials. It had no comparable program for Zulu Chief Buthelezi or other South African leaders who are far more vulnerable than ANC leaders to assassination attempts.

 • On July 5, 1993, David Rockefeller hosted a dinner for top corporate executives to honor Nelson Mandela and raise funds for the ANC election drive. ANC Foreign Secretary Thabo Mbeki praised Rockefeller as a longtime friend who has "backed the ANC financially for more than a decade."

 • Barely two weeks prior to the South African elections, an international coterie of "mediators" led by Henry Kissinger (CFR) descended on Johannesburg to undermine the demands of Zulu Chief Buthelezi and to confer the Insiders' benediction on Mandela and the ANC.

Rhodes' Legacy

Certainly some of the most strategic "pressure from above" has come from inside South Africa itself, which is hardly surprising considering that many of the Insider groups we have been discussing can trace their genesis to that South African Insider of fabled wealth and power, Cecil John Rhodes. With Rothschild and J.P. Morgan money, Rhodes became the worldwide king of diamonds and gold in the latter half of the 19th century. But years earlier, while a student at Oxford, he had become a disciple of Professor John Ruskin, a revolutionary utopian socialist. (Ruskin wrote in his own newsletter, "For, indeed, I am myself a communist of the old school — reddest also of the red.") According to Rhodes biographer Sara G. Millin, "The government of the world was Rhodes' simple desire." Rhodes established a secret society called the Round Table and used his vast fortune to promote his Ruskinite plans for socialist world government. His Round Table progeny include the CFR and its corresponding sister bodies now operating in most of the major powers of Europe and Asia.

Rhodes' mantle was transferred in the early 1900s first to Ernest Oppenheimer, and then to his son, Harry F. Oppenheimer, who holds the reins to one of the largest and most powerful financial and industrial empires the world has ever seen. The Oppenheimer kingdom includes the vast resources of the enormous Anglo American Corporation, the de Beers diamond cartel, the Minorco conglomerate, Highveld Steel, and hundreds of diversified companies encircling the globe.

Like fellow Insiders David Rockefeller and the late Armand Hammer, Oppenheimer has always been cozy with the communists. For 40 years his Anglo American Corporation has held strategic gold and diamond sales agreements with the Soviet Union. Oppenheimer has been a longtime supporter of the ANC and was an early and powerful voice calling for the release of Nelson Mandela.

In 1985 Oppenheimer sent Anglo American chairman Gavin Reilly and other business leaders to Zambia for a meeting with Oliver Tambo and other senior ANC officials. This provided an enormous boost to the ANC's prestige and credibility. Oppenheimer's controlling interest in Argus Newspapers, South Africa's largest newspaper group, has enabled him to shower the ANC/SACP with an incredible propaganda windfall.

His Oppenheimer Fund annually pours millions of dollars into radical causes. According to South African journalist Aida Parker, Oppenheimer's conduits have poured 320 to 350 million rand into the ANC since 1985 and have given the PAC more than 50,000 rand in the weeks leading up to the election.

Naturally, Oppenheimer is a key player in Rockefeller's global CFR network. For many years he has been a leading figure in the South African Institute for International Affairs. Like his American and European counterparts, he has used his position, power, and pelf to betray his country and advance the diabolical designs of the new world order. The Oppenheimer influence, together with strategic pressure from the U.S. Europe Rhodes network, explains many of the suicidal and otherwise inexplicable policies and actions of the National Party (NP) under F.W. de Klerk.

"Conservative" Sellout

Like leaders of the Republican Party in the United States, the de Klerk coterie in Pretoria knows how to strike a conservative posture while actually selling out all South Africans to the ANC/SACP reds. A few examples serve to illustrate a long chain of perfidy:

 • On September 26, 1992 de Klerk and Mandela agreed to outlawing Inkatha members from carrying their traditional weapons — spears and knobby sticks — but did not require ANC armed units to refrain from carrying their traditional weapons — AK-47s, grenades, and other high-powered weapons.

 • In November 1993, de Klerk's National Party and the ANC agreed to the merger of the ANC's military arm, the terrorist Umkhontowe Sizwe (MK), with the South African Defense Force (SADF) into a new National Peacekeeping Force (NPKF). The results have been frightening. As Ray Kennedy reported in The European for April 22-28, the ANC's members at the NPKF training camp near Bloemfontein "distinguished themselves with nights of drunken rampaging when they hurled abuse and threats at white instructors from the South African army and broke out of the barracks. And in its attempt to quell a firefight between ANC supporters and Zulu hostel-dwellers this week, wild shooting ensued, in the course of which a press photographer was killed."

 • The NP/ANC Goldstone Commission was a predictably one-sided affair. Judge Goldstone was the only judge acceptable to the ANC — because of his pro-ANC leanings. Goldstone demonstrated his ANC bias earlier this year when he issued a report to the ANC before issuing it to the government. The Commission's charges that the SADF was arming Inkatha death squads was reported as 'fact' around the world.

 • The Independent Election Commission (IEC) set up by the NP/ANC negotiators and headed by Judge Johann Kriegler was a farce, as expected. Kriegler, a founder of the left-wing Lawyers for Human Rights, is pro-ANC and the entire IEC became a full-employment program for ANC cadres.

 • The blatantly pro-ANC/SACP constitution was constructed by the ANC's Secretary General Cyril Ramaphosa and the NP's Constitutional Development Minister Roelf Meyer — with the help of Harvard's Roger Fisher (CFR) and other Insider internationalists. It amounted to an abject surrender of the government by the NP to the ANC. But it was presented to South Africans by de Klerk and company as a great negotiation "victory."

 As always, it is the revolutionaries in silk ties at the top who are the most dangerous.

Article from 1987 - "South Africa: The Questions that Need to be Asked..."

(Excerpts from The New American)

Monday, 02 March, 1987

South Africa: The Questions That Need to Be Asked
Written by Warren L. McFerran

The issue of South Africa is of concern to everyone, not just South Africans. Indeed, according to former British Foreign Secretary David Owen, it is over this issue "that the world faces its greatest challenge." Faced with such a challenge, it is time for all concerned Americans to penetrate the haze of myths and misconceptions that has been deliberately created.

Unless we wish to see a repetition of the recent tragedies of Iran, Nicaragua, and Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) — where U.S. foreign policy decisions resulted in the replacement of friendly governments with anti-American, pro-Soviet regimes — we must seek out the truth by raising pertinent questions and obtaining factual answers. In light of the Free World's hostility toward South Africa, a good place to begin is by raising a very fundamental and simple question.

How economically advanced and technologically sophisticated is South Africa?

In stark contrast with all the other nations of the African continent, the Republic of South Africa is an economic and technological success story. According to a study made by the United Nations, South Africa is one of the few "developed" nations in the world and the only one on the continent of Africa. 

Occupying only about 3.5 percent of the surface of Africa, South Africa produces 66 percent of the continent's steel, 54 percent of its wool, and 36 percent of its maize. She also provides 40 percent of the continent's industrial output and 45 percent of its mining output, has 29 percent of its railway lines and 46 percent of its passenger and commercial vehicles, and consumes 60 percent of its electricity.

Modern, interprovincial, four-lane superhighways stretch across the country. Cars, televisions, radios, and all the other conveniences of modern life are to be found in South Africa. Computers are made there, the world's first successful human heart transplant was performed there, and a method of enriching uranium was discovered there. 
That country has overcome threatened oil embargoes by developing a process of manufacturing oil from coal, and she has also successfully overcome an arms embargo by developing her own armaments industry.

Many of the other countries on the continent as far north as Zaire are heavily dependent upon the South African economy. Not only do more than one million foreign Black Africans find employment in that country, but most of the Black-ruled nations in southern Africa are almost totally dependent on South Africa for such basic needs as transportation and electricity. In fact, it has been said that, with a flip of a switch, South Africa could plunge the rest of southern Africa into darkness.

How important is South Africa to the Free World?

Two years later, the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations issued a report on the U.S. mineral dependence on South Africa:
The Western industrial world depends heavily on Southern Africa for chrome, manganese, vanadium and platinum. A major disruption in the supply of these minerals would have a disastrous impact on oil refining and the production of a variety of specialty steels needed in such industries as aerospace and machine tools.... 
The U.S. is almost completely dependent on imports of chromium, manganese, and platinum.... It is particularly dependent on South Africa for imports of chrome and ferrochrome and platinum.

South Africa contains the world's largest known deposits of gold, platinum, chrome, manganese, vanadium, and fluorspar. It also contains substantial deposits of antimony, asbestos, coal, copper, diamonds, iron ore, lead, limestone, mica, nickel, phosphates, titanium, uranium, vermiculite, zinc, and zirconium. Nevertheless, even if we completely ignore the fact that South Africa is a mineral treasure house, that country is still strategically important to the West due to her geographic position.

What is apartheid and why was it adopted?

South Africa is home to approximately 30 million people, including about five million Whites, at least 20 million Blacks (Bantu), and nearly 4 million Coloreds (mixed race) and Indians (Asians). That country is not really one nation, but is in fact many nations, each possessing its own language, cultural heritage, and loyalties.
Even among the Whites, two languages are spoken — English and a unique language derived from Dutch known as Afrikaans. The Coloreds speak either English or Afrikaans, or both. Among the Asians, 65 percent are Hindus, 21 percent are Muslims, 7 percent are Christians and Buddhists, and 7 percent are officially classified as "other."

Yet the greatest tribal and cultural diversity is among the Bantu. Blacks are divided into ten major tribes, each loyal to itself and jealous of the others. Within the major tribes are sub-tribal groupings and clan divisions. The Venda, for instance, are South Africa's most homogenous Bantu tribal group; yet they are really an amalgamation of 27 different tribes. Among the Zulu, on the other hand, there are 200 distinct tribes. The Bantu languages can be divided into four main groups, 23 sub-groups, and numerous local dialects.

The philosopher John Stewart Mill observed early in the 19th century: "Free institutions are next to impossible in a country made of different nationalities. Among a people without fellow feelings, especially if they read and write different languages, the united public opinion, necessary to the working of representative government, cannot exist."

Instead of trying to create a great unitary state from the diverse elements within its borders, South Africa adopted in 1948 the policy of apartheid — or more properly, Separate Development — whereby each major population group was recognized as a nation entitled to develop its own political and social institutions separate from the others. 

According to this policy, each of South Africa's ten major Bantu homelands would evolve into a self-governing, independent, democratic sovereign state.

In October 1976, the Republic of Transkei received its independence from South Africa, thereby becoming the first Bantu homeland to achieve sovereign status. The second Bantu homeland to receive its independence was the Republic of Bophuthatswana, which became autonomous in December 1977. The Republic of Venda became sovereign in September 1979; and, in December 1981, the Republic of Ciskei was born.

Although the rest of the world refuses to recognize these sovereign Bantu states, as of January 1987 there were six other Bantu homelands awaiting their turn for complete self-government: the National State of Gazankulu, the National State of Kangwane, the National State of Kwandebele, the National State of Kwazulu, the National State of Lebowa, and the National State of Qwaqwa.

Have Blacks enjoyed the fruits of South Africa's prosperity?

Because South Africa is a "meeting place" between the First World and the Third World economies, it is not surprising that a gap exists between Black and White standards of living.
What is surprising to many, however, is that the gap has narrowed substantially: From 1971-1980, the real income of Blacks increased by 40 percent while that of Whites actually decreased by three percent.

Even South Africa's most severe critics will acknowledge that the country offers Blacks greater opportunities than does any other nation on the continent. As a consequence, millions of alien Blacks seek to enter South Africa every year, legally or illegally -- in sharp contrast with conditions in Communist-held lands such as East Berlin, where a wall has been erected to prevent people from escaping.

Statistics released on March 28, 1980 gave a good indication of the Bantu lifestyle in the South Western Township (Soweto) near Johannesburg, where more than one million Blacks reside. The report revealed that Soweto had more than 1,600 Black-owned businesses, 300 churches, 314 schools, 115 soccer fields, 81 basketball courts, 39 children's playgrounds, 4 soccer stadiums, 6 public swimming pools, 5 bowling alleys, 11 post offices, 6 libraries, 63 day-care centers, and 2 golf courses.

According to statistics released in February 1984, one out of every three South African Blacks owns a refrigerator; 20.2 percent of the Bantu own automobiles, 11.8 percent own color televisions; 5.4 percent own washing machines; and 2.7 percent own freezers. These percentages are not high compared to the standard of living that we enjoy in the U.S., but they are high compared to the primitive conditions that exist elsewhere on the African continent.

One of the best yardsticks for measuring the standard of living is the percentage of income that has to be devoted to the most essential item of all, food. Generally, the higher this percentage, the lower the standard of living. According to the 1984 report, South African Blacks spend an average of 45.1 percent of their household budget on food, which is virtually the same percentage that goes to food among the wage earners of Italy. In fact, South African Blacks spend a smaller percentage of their household income on food than do the populations of any other African country where comparisons were possible. (In many African countries comparisons were not possible because as little as six percent of the populations were employed in wage-earning jobs.)

How does South Africa's human rights record compare with the record for the rest of Africa?

South Africa's State President Pieter W. Botha recently issued this challenge to the world: "It is the big lie that a Black government in Africa is, of necessity, a majority government. I challenge the world to contradict me. It is a sad fact that only a minute percentage of Blacks in Africa have obtained democracy, liberty and justice."

Strife, famine, anarchy, and civil war are the hallmarks of Black Africa, and racism against non-Blacks is widely encouraged and institutionalized. Article 27 of the Liberian Constitution, for instance, declares that "only persons who are Negro or of Negro descent shall qualify by birth or by naturalization to be citizens of Liberia."

Free elections in the countries north of South Africa are non-existent, and the usual mode of changing governments in Black-ruled Africa is through violent revolution. In some cases, the deposed ruler is actually cooked and eaten by cannibals. A case in point is Major General Ironyi of Nigeria, who was actually eaten by the victorious tribe following his overthrow.

Toward the end of 1985, the Catholic daily Munno reported on conditions in Uganda: "The soldiers are once again on the rampage, shooting and knifing civilians, abducting women and young girls and taking turns to rape them." According to Amnesty International, atrocities in Uganda routinely involve raping women and "crushing or pulling testicles of men."

The Republic of South Africa has by far the best human rights record on the African continent. Yet the "human rights" zealots in the Free World have chosen to ignore glaring abuses of real human rights in the rest of Africa and have concentrated on South Africa. As a result of this persistent criticism and pressure, the South African Government has resolved to abolish apartheid.

Is the internal reform process real?

The South African people have often reminded the world that they are an independent, sovereign nation, asserting that their sins, whatever they may be, are not ours. Yet they are also sensitive to Free World criticism, and they have accordingly dismantled the most objectionable laws that have become associated with the concept of Separate Development (apartheid), including pass laws, laws forbidding interracial marriage, and restrictive housing laws. In recent times, nearly every phase of South African life has been integrated, from the work place to the sports stadium.

The first major constitutional step toward a form of "power sharing" was made in 1984 with the adoption of a new Constitution. This "New Dispensation" provided for a tricameral legislature, with Whites, Coloreds, and Asians each having their own house of parliament. Although not yet finalized, plans are currently being made to include Blacks in the evolving federation structure.

The reform program in South Africa is certainly genuine. But it has also made South Africa vulnerable to attack. The philosopher Alexis de Tocqueville once observed: "Experience shows that the most dangerous moment for a bad government is usually that point at which it begins to reform itself." This is also true for good governments, when they undergo reform in the face of charges and accusations that they are "bad" governments. Such a government undergoing reform in response to pressure and coercion is vulnerable because its action is widely perceived as a sign of weakness and as an admission of past wrong-doing.

Not only has the Free World utilized South Africa's reform process as the means to increase coercive tactics, but internal subversive groups have seized the opportunity to launch an unprecedented and bloody wave of revolution within South Africa.

Does the Soviet Union have designs on South Africa?

Leonid Brezhnev stated in 1973: "Our aim is to gain control of the two great treasure houses on which the West depends — the energy treasure house of the Persian Gulf and the minerals treasure house of central and southern Africa.".

Not only are the Soviets moving rapidly to surround the strategic Middle East, but they are also moving rapidly to conquer all of southern Africa. Angola, Mozambique, and Zimbabwe are already in the hands of puppet dictators loyal to World Communism. There are also numerous Communist-bloc combat troops stationed in southern Africa, including some 40,000 Cuban troops in Angola alone. As a consequence of these ominous developments, South Africa finds herself completely flanked by hostile Marxist states, and the final battle for the control of southern Africa has already begun.

What are the main anti-apartheid revolutionary groups in South Africa, and who are their leaders?

Of the many revolutionary groups operating against the Republic of South Africa, two predominate — the African National Congress (ANC) and the United Democratic Front (UDF).

Although the original purpose of the ANC, which was founded in 1912, is rather obscure, ample documentation exists proving that it is now totally dominated and controlled by the South African Communist Party (SACP), which in turn is controlled by the Kremlin. In his official history of the South African Communist Party, Michael Harmel, writing under the pseudonym A. Lerumo, stated:
Today the ANC has been so thoroughly infiltrated and taken over by the SACP that the two are virtually synonymous.... Joint planning by the USSR, ANC and SACP of the strategy to be used against South Africa is coordinated in Moscow where there has recently been increasing pressure on the ANC to provide proof that it is capable of "intensifying the struggle."

In November 1982, the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Security and Terrorism issued a report, entitled Soviet, East German andCuban Involvement in Fomenting Terrorism in Southern Africa. Among those who testified before the Subcommittee was Bartholomew Hlapane, a former member of the Central Committee of the SACP and of the National Executive Committee of the ANC. Hlapane, it should be noted, paid with his life for daring to tell the truth about the African National Congress.

Shortly after giving his testimony before the Subcommittee, he was gunned down by an ANC assassin armed with a Soviet AK-47 assault rifle.
Hlapane testified: "No major decision could be taken by the ANC without the concurrence and approval of the Central Committee of the SACP. Most major developments were in fact initiated by the Central Committee." He added: "The military wing of the ANC, also known as Umkhonto we Sizwe, was the brainchild of the SACP, and, after the decision to create it had been taken, Joe Slovo and J. B. Marks were sent by the Central Committee of the SACP to Moscow to organize arms and ammunition and to raise funds forUmkhonto we Sizwe." Joe Slovo, a White South African and a Colonel in the Soviet KGB, is a member of the National Executive Committee of the ANC and of the Central Committee of the SACP.

The acting head of the ANC is Oliver Tambo, who has repeatedly promised death and violence for South Africa. Tambo has also attended official meetings of various Communist Parties around the world, and has even addressed some of those meetings to praise the goals of the world Communist movement.

At the 60th anniversary celebration of the South African Communist Party, held on July 30, 1981, Tambo stated: "Members of the ANC fully understand why both the ANC and the SACP are two hands in the same body, why they are two pillars of our revolution." 

Of course, the symbolic leader and "martyr" of the ANC is Nelson Mandela, who has been serving a life sentence in prison since 1964 for plotting the violent overthrow of the South African Government. When brought to trial in 1964, Mandela confessed to writing books "on guerrilla warfare and military training" and admitted that he "planned violence." Placed in evidence at the trial were documents in his own handwriting bearing such titles as Dialectical Materialism and How To Be A Good Communist.

In one document, Mandela wrote: "As in Cuba, the general uprising must be sparked off by organized and well-prepared guerrilla operations...." In another, he wrote: "We Communist Party members are the most advanced revolutionaries in modern history...." And in still another: "The people of South Africa, led by the South African Communist Party, will destroy capitalist society and build in its place socialism...."

For the past few years, the South African Government has offered to release Nelson Mandela if only he would pledge to refrain from violence. Mandela has thus far refused to take that pledge. While he stays in prison, by his own choice, his wife Winnie serves as his mouthpiece and carries on with his revolutionary work.

What are these anti-apartheid revolutionary groups fighting for?

What the anti-apartheid revolutionary groups claim they are fighting against has always been far better understood than what they are fighting for. To clarify their position, the subversive groups formed the Congress of the People, which convened at Klipton, near Johannesburg, to adopt a so-called Freedom Charter on June 25 and 26, 1955. This Freedom Charter is still officially endorsed by the ANC and the UDF, and therefore offers further insight into the nature of the internal South Africa revolution.

The Freedom Charter promised a utopia for South Africa: "The People Shall Share the Country's Wealth!" "There Shall Be Work and Security!" "There Shall Be Houses, Security and Comfort!" "There Shall Be Peace and Friendship!" The method of bringing this worker's paradise to South Africa was spelled out in detail.
"The national wealth of our country, the heritage of all South Africans, shall be restored to the people," by confiscation. "The mineral wealth beneath the soil, the banks and monopoly industries shall be transferred to the ownership of the people as a whole," as Karl Marx advocated.
"All other industry and trade shall be controlled to assist the well-being of the people," as the basic tenets of scientific socialism dictate.

This Freedom Charter sounds as if it had been written by Communists because it was written by Communists. In testimony before the U.S. Subcommittee on Security and Terrorism, former ANC and SACP executive member Bartholomew Hlapane said: "It is a document I came to know about, just having been drafted by Joe Slovo at the request of the Central Committee and finally approved by the Central Committee of the Communist Party."

By what methods are the anti-apartheid groups "liberating" the South African people?

The revolutionary forces of "national liberation" within South Africa are trying to "liberate" the non-White peoples by waging a systematic campaign of terrorism in the Black townships and by murdering the very peoples they claim to be liberating.

Dominating the scene in that country are assassinations and intimidation of Black policemen and democratically-elected local Black officials, firebombings of Black-owned businesses, boycotts and strikes enforced by coercion, calls for nonpayment of rent, and the establishment of revolutionary Marxist "People's Committees" and "People's Courts." The struggle is not Black versus White, but Black and White versus Red.

Black-on-Black civil war has gripped virtually every Black community in South Africa. At Crossroads, near Cape Town, decent Blacks have organized "vigilante" groups to defend themselves from crazed ANC-UDF mobs, and thousands of homes have been burned in pitched battles, leaving some 200,000 Blacks homeless. 

In Durban, Zulu Chief Gatsha Buthelezi's Inkatha members are openly battling the ANC-UDF Marxist "comrades."
And in Soweto, one resident recently told a Newsweek reporter that "Soweto is in a state of civil war. It's no longer news to wake up in the morning and see bodies in the streets and the front yards." It was in response to the breakdown of law and order, in fact, that the South African government imposed a state of national emergency.

Especially significant is the growing number of public executions of decent, moderate Blacks with the technique of "necklacing." This technique calls for ANC-UDF radicals to place a rubber tire around a shackled victim's neck. The tire is then filled with gasoline and set on fire. As the victim is engulfed in flames, the radicals gather around to taunt him with a callousness that defies human understanding. Necklacing is a savage form of torture and murder. Yet, Winnie Mandela has boldly proclaimed: "With our boxes of matches and our necklaces, we shall liberate this country."

Whose side is our government on?

There was indeed an "Orwellian perversity" in the Anti-Apartheid Act, the official name of the 1986 sanctions bill. Among other things, the law called for U.S. funding of anti-apartheid South African groups; termination of U.S. military cooperation with South Africa; pressure on Western allies to apply similar punitive measures; the "unbanning" of terrorist organizations such as the ANC; and the release of all "political prisoners," with Nelson Mandela mentioned by name.

In his remarks on the Senate floor in opposition to the sanctions bill, Senator Jesse Helms noted that the measure "is not about segregation. It is not about the sharing of power, it is about the transfer of power ... to a small minority elite. That elite is the Communist Party of South Africa." Helms continued:
The intent of the new legislation is to recognize the Communist movement of South Africa as the legitimate and preferred successor to the present government of South Africa. The bill itself gives preference in almost every respect only to those opponents of the government and those groups that are deeply committed to the Communist Party of South Africa, an organization funded and controlled by the Soviet Union. The non-Communist leaders of the Blacks and non-Whites are treated as though they do not exist.

The Senator from North Carolina asked: "Why is it that the only persons mentioned by name in the bill are Communists? Why is it that the only parties referenced are precisely those parties which are under the total control and support of the international Communist movement?" Helms summarized the matter by stating frankly that the measure "is a bill for Communist rule" in the Republic of South Africa.

How do the facts add up?

South Africa is a close friend and time-tested ally of the United States and, because of her geographic position and valuable mineral deposits, is strategically important to the survival of the Free World. 
South Africa has by far the best human rights record on the African continent. It is undergoing a genuine reform process, a process that has rendered that country more vulnerable to internal and external attack.

The Republic of South Africa is under attack by subversive forces that are clearly under the total control of Moscow. 
Those revolutionary forces are torturing and murdering the very peoples they claim to be liberating. Most important of all is the incontrovertible fact that our government is supporting those revolutionary forces.

Cosatu: "Guerrilla military skills of MK needed on ground"

(Excerpts from Politicsweb article)

A speech by Cosatu's president to the MK Military Veterans Association....

Input by Sidumo Dlamini, COSATU President, to the Conference of the MKMVA held at Birchwood Conference Centre, October 15 2012

I think it is important that right from the onset I clarify some of the basic things about COSATU, the African National Congress and MK.
Firstly, we come to address this congress not as friends of the ANC, but as strategic revolutionary allies who shared, and continue to share, the trenches of war against colonialism of a Special Type with the ANC.

Secondly, we did not and continue not to participate in this struggle simply as beneficiaries but as part of the South African working class whose hard conditions of life compelled them to be at the forefront amongst the ranks of the Congress Movement to attain the National Democratic Revolution vision.

We know that we are the most organised detachment of the working class and therefore we subject ourselves to the revolutionary discipline of the working class as a whole, which is the conscious and uncompromising leading detachment of the motive forces of our revolution as led by the ANC.

We know that the working class has the responsibility of uniting the widest range of classes and social strata in a common struggle for the realisation of the strategic objectives of the National Democratic Revolution.

The history of our revolution bears testimony to the facts that you are our own.
It was not a mistake that amongst the members of the Luthuli Detachment who participated in the Wankie Spolilo operation, which was the first MK group...were amongst the first to receive military training in the Soviet Union.

The 1978 Politico-Military Commissions Report contained what was later to be popularly referred as the Green Book said that "the armed struggle must be based on, and grow out of, mass political support and it must eventually involve all our people. All military activities must at every stage be guided by and determined by the need to generate political mobilization, organization and resistance, with the aim of progressively weakening the enemy's grip on his reins of political, economic, social and military power, by a combination of political and military action."

As COSATU, we later saw comrades testifying in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission [TRC] on their roles as commanders of the MK units.
Amongst those many units was the called "Operation Butterfly Unit".

Amongst those...who testified that the limpet mines which exploded on 27th September 1985 at OK Bazaars, and Game in Durban West Street, were directed at the dispute between unions and management which was refusing to accede to workers demands. 

Sasol had become a symbol of South African independence. It was South Africa's answer to the oil embargo and through those struggles, the apartheid project was disrupted. History will show that MK targeted and bombed SASOL twice.

We want to challenge the MKMVA to make their project to detail the historical facts which must demonstrate the organic relationship between MK activities and trade union struggles.
Actually, you must consider having a joint political education project with COSATU on this matter. The history of our revolution must be written by those with first- hand experience and MKMVA must lead that process.

What we have seen and continue to see happening in the mining sector is not without its own historical, political and economic basis.
And any genuine revolutionary, who is genuine about freedom, will not use those platforms to attack the movement but use them to deepen class war against the class enemy which are the employers.

The fact of the matter is that workers of this country are paid less as compared to the wealth they produce and also incomes of their bosses.

We want to warn those who continue to kill our people, and those who continue to insult the leadership of our movement and setting up units to destabilize and weaken the NUM: Our patience is not endless!
We will soon be calling on our people to defend themselves.

Comrade, Chris Hani taught us that it is those, who knows how to fight, who will be the first to call for peace.

We call on members of the MKMVA to work with our structures on the ground as we explain facts to people...

We've got to have MKMVA members using their guerrilla military skills to work with us on the ground to defend this movement and our revolution as a whole which is being threatened by demagogues, who are seeking political survival by all means and at all costs, even at the cost of the very revolution they claim to advance.

We are coming from our 11th National Congress drawing inspiration from the recommendations of the ANC policy conference which called for radical second phase of our transition. 

We are now preparing for the ANC 53rd Conference to be held in Mangaung and we are going there to argue that the radical phase of the second phase of our transition will require the programme of the movement must be clearly biased towards the working class.

And also that it must be based on an agreed platform which is implemented by government; that we deliberately build an activist interventionist state and that the ANC-led Alliance should constitutes the strategic centre of power which directs the National Democratic Revolution [NDR]. 

And the ANC shall always reflect this dominant character without underplaying the other class interests.

In our view comrades, there can be no radical second phase of transition if the ANC does not prepare to generate a programmes that are driven and supported by the masses.

It is actually the ANC's adherence to the mass line which took us to the 1994 breakthrough, albeit with the emergence of alien tendencies which began to emerge during the negotiations in which the masses began to be treated as secondary.

The period we are going through and the period of the radical second phase of our transition will require the political commissars and real commanders must practically occupy the front ranks of our revolution.

We want practical answers from the MKMVA!

The New American: "Genocide and Communism threaten South Africa"

Written by Alex Newman - 24 October 2012

Along a highway on a grassy hill, thousands of white crosses — each one representing an individual victim of brutal farm murders, or plaasmoorde in Afrikaans — are a stark reminder of the reality facing European-descent farmers in the new South Africa. One of the iron crosses was planted last year in memory of two-year-old Willemien Potgieter, who was executed on a farm and left in a pool of her own blood. Her parents were murdered, too — the father hacked to death with a machete. Before leaving, the half-dozen killers tied a note to the gate: “We killed them. We’re coming back.”

The Potgieter family massacre is just one of the tens of thousands of farm attacks to have plagued South Africa since 1994. Like little Willemien’s cross, many of those now-iconic emblems represent innocent children, even babies, who have been savagely murdered, oftentimes after being tortured in ways so gruesome, horrifying, and barbaric, that mere words could never adequately describe it. The death toll is still rising.

Like countless South Africans, Andre Vandenberg has lost multiple relatives to violence in the so-called “Rainbow Nation.” In separate incidents, according to Vandenberg, a motorcycle exporter and former military man who now lives in the United States, two of his female cousins were brutally and repeatedly raped in front of their husbands. One of the women was pregnant with the couple’s first child. All five victims were murdered. After sodomizing and killing the husbands, in both cases, the ruthless attackers raped Vandenberg’s cousins again.

Enduring the horror for hours, one of the women was eventually shot. The other had a tire filled with gasoline put around her neck and set ablaze — the agonizing punishment known as “necklacing,” which was once commonly meted out to black opponents of the predominantly black African National Congress (ANC) now ruling South Africa in an unholy alliance with the South African Communist Party (SACP) and an umbrella group for labor unions. Nelson Mandela’s wife, Winnie, was known for publicly supporting the barbaric act. Nobody was ever arrested in connection with those two farm attacks.

Before Vandenberg lost his cousins, his father was killed by a truck driver in a suspicious accident. The drunken suspect, apparently a respected figure within the ANC, was arrested at the scene. However, under pressure from the ANC, the killer was released on $100 bail. Again with help from the ANC, Vandenberg said, the driver fled and was never prosecuted for the killing. No explanation was ever given by authorities, despite repeated appeals for answers.

After being deported back to South Africa from the United States over an alleged failure to report a change of address, Vandenberg’s brother was killed, too. Within a year of his arrival, he was brutally murdered. Witnesses watched the murder unfold and told police, but as has become typical, nobody was ever prosecuted. A male cousin of Vandenberg’s, meanwhile, was shot in the chest while being robbed. And as is often the case, the murder was labeled an “accident” by authorities.

“It’s racial crime,” insisted Vandenberg, an Afrikaner descendant of Dutch settlers, in an interview with The New American. “The ANC people are using genocide — they’re pro-genocide. Long term, they want all the property that belongs to the whites.” The black-led ANC-communist regime is “twice as racist” as the former white-led apartheid government ever was, he added. And along with its supporters, the South African government is willing to do “anything” to accomplish its goals.

When top ANC government leaders, including South African President Jacob Zuma, chant about exterminating whites, “some people think they’re just singing songs,” Vandenberg said, becoming visibly uncomfortable at the thought of it. “But I think they’re very serious about that. That’s why we have all the farm murders.... What they do, their followers will follow.”

In its defense, the ANC regime points out that crime affects all South Africans; and it is true, the country has one of the highest murder rates in the world — blacks, whites, people of Asian origin, and others are all terrorized by it. 
But respected independent experts who have investigated allegations of anti-white genocide in the Rainbow Nation have concluded that the government is not being honest about the wave of genocidal murders. The ANC’s national spokesman declined repeated requests for comment.


Following a fact-finding mission to South Africa in July, Dr. Gregory Stanton, head of the non-profit group Genocide Watch, announced his conclusions: There is an orchestrated genocidal campaign targeting whites, and white farmers in particular. 
The respected organization released a report about its investigation shortly afterward. On a scale the group developed to identify the phases of genocide, South Africa has been moved to stage six: the preparation and planning phase. Step seven is extermination. The eighth and final stage: denial after the fact.

Among the startling discoveries, long known to South Africans and analysts monitoring the powder keg, was evidence pointing to the ANC regime itself. “There is thus strong circumstantial evidence of government support for the campaign of forced displacement and atrocities against White farmers and their families,” Genocide Watch leaders said in their report, entitled Why Are Afrikaner Farmers Being Murdered in South Africa? “There is direct evidence of SA [South African] government incitement to genocide.”
According to experts and estimates compiled by citizens who track the killing spree, at least 3,000 white farmers in South Africa, known as Boers (from the Dutch word for “farmer”), have been brutally massacred over the last decade. Some estimates put the figures even higher, but it is hard to know because the ANC government has purposely made it impossible to determine the true extent. 
With the total number of commercial farmers in South Africa estimated at between 30,000 and 40,000, analysts say as many as 10 percent have already been exterminated. Even more have come under attack.

It is worse than murder, though. Many of the victims, including children and even infants, are raped or savagely tortured or both before being executed or left for dead. Sometimes boiling water is poured down their throats. Other attacks involve burning victims with hot irons or slicing them up with machetes. In more than a few cases, the targets have been tied to their own cars and dragged along dirt roads for miles.

The South African government, dominated by the communist-backed ANC, has responded to the surging wave of racist murders by denying the phenomenon, implausibly claiming that many of the attacks are simply “regular” crimes. Despite fierce criticism, authorities also stopped tracking statistics that would provide a more accurate picture of what is truly going on.

In many cases, the murders are simply classified as “burglaries” or even “accidents” and ignored, so the true murder figures are certainly much higher than officials admit. The police, meanwhile, are often involved in the murders or at least the coverups, multiple sources report. 
A white South African exile living in the United States told The New American that when victims are able to defend themselves or apprehend the would-be perpetrators, many of the attackers are found to be affiliated with the ruling ANC or its youth wing.

Experts are not buying the government’s coverup. “The farm murders, we have become convinced, are not accidental,” said Dr. Stanton of Genocide Watch during his fact-finding mission to South Africa. It was very clear that the massacres were not common crimes, he added — especially because of the absolute barbarity used against the victims. “We don’t know exactly who is planning them yet, but what we are calling for is an international investigation.”

Indeed, most unbiased analysts concede that the thousands of brutal killings and tens of thousands of attacks are part of a broader pattern. And according to Dr. Stanton, who was also involved in the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa and has decades of experience examining genocide and communist terror, the trend points toward a troubled future for the nation.

“Things of this sort are what I have seen before in other genocides,” he said of the murdered white farmers, pointing to several examples, including a victim’s body that was left with an open Bible on top and other murder victims who were tortured, disemboweled, raped, or worse. 
“This is what has happened in Burundi; it’s what happened in Rwanda. It has happened in many other places in the world.”

Speaking in Pretoria at an event organ­ized by the anti-communist Transvaal Agricultural Union, Dr. Stanton also lashed out at the effort to dehumanize whites in South Africa by portraying them as “settlers.” The label is meant to paint Afrikaner white farmers — descendants of Northern Europeans who arrived centuries ago, some as far back as the 1600s — as people who do not belong there.

“High-ranking ANC government officials who continuously refer to Whites as ‘settlers’ and ‘colonialists of a special type’ are using racial epithets in a campaign of state-sponsored dehumanization of the White population as a whole,” Genocide Watch said in its latest report. “They sanction gang-organized hate crimes against Whites, with the goal of terrorizing Whites through fear of genocidal annihilation.”

It is the same process that happened prior to the infamous genocide against Christian Armenians in Turkey, Stanton explained. The dehumanization phenomenon also occurred against the Jewish people in Germany under the National Socialist (Nazi) regime of mass-murderer Adolf Hitler, well before the Nazi tyrant began implementing his monstrous “final solution.”

Unfortunately, South Africa might be next in line. “Whenever you have that kind of dehumanization … you have the beginning of that downward spiral into genocide,” Stanton noted, adding that the situation in South Africa had already moved well beyond that stage. The next phase before extermination, which began years ago in South Africa, is organizing to actually carry it out.

“We are worried that there are organized groups that are in fact doing that planning,” Stanton continued during his speech. “It became clear to us that the [ANC] Youth League was this kind of organization — it was planning this kind of genocidal massacre and also the forced displacement of whites from South Africa.”

Genocide Watch first raised its alert level for South Africa from stage five to stage six when then-ANC Youth League boss Julius Malema began openly singing a racist song aimed at inciting murder against white South African farmers: “Shoot the Boer” and “Kill the Boer” were some of the lyrics. Described by the anti-genocide group as a “racist Marxist-Leninist,” Malema has also been quoted as saying that “all whites are criminals” and threatening to steal white farmers’ land by force. He said the farm murders would stop when Africans of European descent surrendered their land.

After the calls to genocide made international headlines, the South African judiciary ruled that the song advocating murder of whites was unlawful hate speech. Genocide Watch moved South Africa back down to stage five. Incredibly, however, the president of South Africa, ANC’s Jacob Zuma, began singing the song early this year, too.

“We are going to shoot them with the machine gun; they are going to run; you are a Boer [white farmer]; shoot the Boer,” the South African president sang at an ANC rally in Bloemfontein in January, an incident that was caught on film and posted online. Since then, the number of murdered white South African farmers has been growing each month, according to reports. Other senior government officials, meanwhile, have openly called for “war.” South Africa is now back at stage six.

“This is the kind of talk that of course is not only pre-genocidal, it also comes before crimes against humanity,” Dr. Stanton said, urging everyone to remember that they are all members of the human race. “Those who would be deniers, and who would try to ignore the warning signs in this country, I think are ignoring the facts.”

There is also increasing “polarization,” where the target population — white farmers in this case, and even moderates of all races — are portrayed as an “enemy,” Stanton explained about the march to genocide. And that phenomenon is ever-more apparent in South Africa today, with the situation starting to spiral out of control.

Meanwhile, the South African government is stepping up efforts to disarm the struggling white farmers — stripping them of their final line of defense against genocidal attacks. As has consistently been the case throughout history, of course, disarmament is always a necessary precursor to totalitarianism and the eventual mass slaughter of target groups. In fact, arms in the hands of citizens are often the final barrier to complete enslavement and even extermination.

“The government has disbanded the commando units of white farmers that once protected their farms, and has passed laws to confiscate the farmers’ weapons,” Genocide Watch noted on its website in an update about South Africa posted in July. “Disarmament of a targeted group is one of the surest early warning signs of future genocidal killings.”
Even mere possession of an “unregistered” or “unlicensed” weapon — licenses have become extraordinarily difficult to obtain, if not impossible — can result in jail time. And in South Africa, especially for whites, prison is a virtual death sentence, with widespread rape and HIV infections being the norm.

Those who do surrender their guns may find themselves defenseless in the face genocidal terror — again, a potential death sentence. South African exiles who spoke with TNA said that many of the guns confiscated from whites by officials have later been found at the gruesome murder scenes of white farmers.

The United Nations defines genocide as “the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group.” The term also includes actions other than simply wholesale slaughter, though. According to the UN, among the crimes that can constitute genocide are causing serious harm to members of a specific minority group; deliberately inflicting conditions on the minority aimed at bringing about its destruction in whole or in part; seeking to prevent births among the targeted population; and forcibly transferring minority children to others.

South African Sonia Hruska, a former Mandela administration consultant who served as a coordinator in policy implementation from 1994 to 2001 before moving to the United States, told The New American that many or even most of those conditions have already been met — and any single one can technically constitute genocide if it is part of a systematic attempt to destroy a particular group. “Acknowledge it. Don’t deny it,” she said. Other activists and exiles agree. Meanwhile, Hruska and other experts say that the government is encouraging the problem, actively discriminating against whites, and in many cases even facilitating the ongoing atrocities.

“Forced displacement from their farms has inflicted on the Afrikaner ethnic group conditions of life calculated to bring about its complete or partial physical destruction, an act of genocide also prohibited by the Genocide Convention,” Genocide Watch said in its most recent report. “In our analysis, the current ANC leadership also publicly uses incitement to genocide with the long-term goal of forcibly driving out or annihilating the White population from South Africa.”

Of course, not all South Africans — especially city dwellers — are convinced that there is an ongoing genocide in their country, or even that one may be coming. The vast majority of blacks and whites would simply like to live in peace with each other.

However, virtually everyone who is paying attention agrees that without solutions, the precarious situation in the Rainbow Nation will continue to deteriorate, going from bad to worse, sooner rather than later.
Communist Threat: Land, Mines

Behind the genocide lurks another issue that is inseparable from it — the ongoing communist effort to completely enslave South Africa under totalitarian rule. In fact, aside from white supremacists, who have seized on the problems in the Rainbow Nation to spread hate against blacks, most activists believe the stirring up of racial tensions is not an end in itself. Instead, it is a means to the ultimate end of foisting socialism on the nation while eliminating all potential resistance.

The issue of land distribution, which has become one of the key drivers of the downward spiral, is among the greatest concerns. The white minority in South Africa still owns much of the land despite ANC promises to redistribute it to blacks. But the redistribution that has occurred — as in neighboring Zimbabwe — has largely resulted in failure, with redistributed farms often failing quickly while producing little to no food.

Despite the atrocious track record so far, extremists, including elements of the ANC-dominated government, are now hoping to expropriate land from white farmers more quickly, with some factions even arguing that it should be done with no compensation at all. And the communist agenda here, as in virtually everywhere else where forcible land redistribution has been adopted, has even broader goals than just enriching cronies.

“Whatever system of land tenure is adopted in South Africa, the communists — in the long run — have in mind to take away all private property. That should never be forgotten,” Stanton warned, noting that he has lived in communist-run countries before. “Every place you go where communists have taken over, they take away private ownership because private ownership gives people the power — the economic power — to oppose their government. Once you have taken that away, there is no basis on which you can have the economic power to oppose the government.”

Of course, this would not be the first time a similar tragedy has happened in southern Africa. When Marxist dictator Robert Mugabe seized power in Zimbabwe (formerly known as Rhodesia, once one of the richest countries on the continent — “the breadbasket of Africa”), he began a ruthless war against the white population and his political opponents of all colors.

The country promptly spiraled into chaos and mass starvation under the Mugabe regime when the tyrant “redistributed” the farms and wealth to his cronies, who of course knew nothing about farming. The regime butchered tens of thousands of victims, and estimates suggest that millions have died as a direct result of Mugabe’s Marxist policies. Many fled to South Africa.

Whites who refused to leave their property during the “redistribution” were often tortured and killed by the regime or its death squads. With Mugabe still in charge, the tragic plight of Zimbabwe continues to worsen today. But the mass-murdering despot is still held in high regard by many senior officials in the ANC.

“As a group, Afrikaner farmers stand in the way of the South African Communist Party’s goal to implement their Marxist/Leninist/Stalinist New Democratic Revolution and specifically the confiscation of all rural land belonging to White Afrikaner farmers,” Genocide Watch officials noted in their most recent report.
Beyond land, there is also the mining sector, which is crucial to keeping the rapidly deteriorating South African economy afloat. With the recent labor unrest and miner strikes focusing international attention on the “Rainbow Nation,” there are still more questions than answers. What has become clear, though, is that at least certain factions within South Africa’s ruling elite are seeking to exploit the crisis to advance the cause of nationalization.

Politicians and aspiring powerbrokers seized on the escalating crisis — multiple gold and platinum mines were idled because of the ongoing strikes — to whip up hysteria for political purposes, analysts said. In mid-September, over a thousand soldiers were deployed to support an embattled police force, as the ruling ANC regime and its communist partners sought to blame business for the tensions.

The ruling alliance consisting of the ANC, the South African Communist Party (SACP), and the Conference of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) implausibly claimed after an inquiry that mining companies were to blame for the chaos: “It is therefore our considered view that employers have an interest in fanning this conflict to reverse the gains achieved by workers over a long period of time.”

According to the ruling alliance, the mining businesses were deliberately stirring up union rivalries to suppress wages and benefits. However, credible analysts largely rejected the allegations as preposterous; the firms in question have already lost huge amounts of money as many of their mines remained shut down because of the strikes. Stock prices plunged, too.

Meanwhile, multiple communist agitators within and outside the ANC renewed their calls to nationalize the mines. The move, however, was hardly a surprise. Consider that even before seizing power, state ownership of the sector was established ANC policy. “The nationalization of the mines, banks and monopoly industries is the policy of the ANC and a change or modification of our views in this regard is inconceivable,” Nelson Mandela said in a 1990 statement from prison.

They are still at it today. Marxist agitator and former ANC Youth League boss Malema, famous for corruption, inciting genocide against white South Africans, and demanding that the regime nationalize virtually the entire economy, inserted himself at the center of the growing labor unrest. He called for, among other schemes, nationwide strikes and the nationalization of the whole mining industry.

After Malema was expelled from the ANC earlier this year, the suspiciously wealthy communist racist — he lives far beyond his means and was recently charged with corruption — has started to attack South African ANC President Zuma, a polygamist and fellow open communist who also regularly sings the infamous hate song calling for the extermination of whites. After strikers were killed by police last month, Malema, apparently upset that Zuma had not sunk South Africa into total communist tyranny quickly enough, said, “How can he call on people to mourn those he has killed? He must step down.”

Observers, even those within South Africa’s ruling alliance, however, suggested the unrest was actually being carefully orchestrated by power-hungry elements within the communist-backed ANC itself. 

Even top officials within the alliance are suspicious about what is going on. According to COSATU President Sdumo Dlamini, for example, Malema supporters within the ANC were hoping to plunge South Africa into deeper chaos to solidify their power. “We also understand that there have been certain individuals behind him who are funding this for their own political ambitions,” Dlamini said. “Julius Malema may be the point person running at the front, but we know that there are big guns behind him.” And big money, too.

Dlamini said COSATU was “very angry” that unsuspecting mine workers were being used as pawns by opportunists, sometimes even being killed in the process. “This is a systematic, orchestrated, long-time plan that is unfolding now,” he added. “The ANC as the ruling party shouldn’t be afraid to be bold, condemn and expose.... The ANC must continue to identify and deal with those who fund this chaos.”

Communists, of course, have historically been known to create the superficial impression of internal division to further their agenda while collaborating together behind the scenes the use of strategic disinformation, as defectors have called it. Obviously, there are occasions when would-be communist despots fight among themselves as well. It remains unclear what, if anything, may be going on outside of the limelight between the ANC, the SACP, and other totalitarian forces working to crush individual liberty and all resistance within South Africa.

Other analysts attributed the expanding labor unrest to widely different causes, ranging from anger over the ANC regime’s lawless corruption to genuine grievances about dangerous working conditions and low pay at the mines. Tribal tensions have also been cited as playing a role, though just how significant is difficult to determine.

Numerous observers have attributed the violent tensions to rivalries between the ANC-linked National Union of Mineworkers (NUM), which is the largest member of COSATU, and its increasingly influential rival known as the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU). Some experts said the crackdown on protests was an effort to quash the AMCU before it further splintered workers’ support for the ruling ANC-SACP-COSATU alliance.

Critics have accused the AMCU, which touts itself as anti-communist and has long criticized the established powerbrokers for corruption, of fomenting the unrest. The South African Communist Party even called for AMCU leaders to be arrested after the incident, and among the ruling communist establishment, fears about the renegade union are reportedly growing.

The chaos has been ongoing since early this year, but it exploded and entered into the international headlines in August after dozens of striking miners were killed in what has since been dubbed the “Marikana massacre.” Police, who were reportedly fired upon by armed demonstrators, returned fire, killing more than 30 people.

Top government officials — many of whom have personal stakes in the situation including shares in the mining firms — have vowed to crack down on the strikes. Proud communist revolutionary Jeff Radebe, the “Justice Minister” in the ANC regime, said at a September 14 press conference that authorities were intervening because the mining industry is crucial to South Africa’s crumbling economy. “The South African government has noted and is deeply concerned by the amount of violence, threats and intimidation that is currently taking place in our country,” he told reporters, warning that anyone taking part in “illegal gatherings” would be “dealt with” very swiftly. “Our government will not tolerate these acts any further.”

Critics of the harsh response warned that raids and use of force against miners would likely contribute to further unrest. Perhaps that is the desired outcome, with anarchy helping to pave the way for police-state measures. While the crisis was growing, however, Marxist genocidal forces seized the opportunity to unleash an even larger bloodbath.

A newly formed U.S.-based group of human rights activists and South African exiles known as Friends 4 Humanity, founded to raise awareness about the genocide of the South African minority, told The New American at the time that the number of racist attacks and murders against Afrikaner farmers had surged dramatically amid the labor unrest. There were at least 30 documented attacks in the first two weeks of September — many resulting in multiple murders.

Since the beginning of 2012 we have noticed that murders increased to approximately one every second day, with some victims as young as six months,” said Sonia Hruska, the former Mandela consultant who is also a founding member of the new organization. “However, since the start of the mining unrest it has now escalated to as much as at least one attack a day with multiple fatal victims.”

Impeding the Plan

The New American magazine warned readers almost two decades ago that the ANC leaders of the anti-apartheid movement and their foreign backers, despite the establishment media’s bogus claims, were deliberately plotting to condemn that nation to communism. The signs were all over the place — literally. For example, Nelson Mandela made a public appearance in front of a giant hammer and sickle with SACP chief Joe Slovo. Now, after almost 20 years of patient waiting, that conquest appears to be nearing its final phases as anti-communist whites are slaughtered to make way for a collectivist “utopia” ruled by the ANC and the SACP. Troublesome blacks were exterminated by the ANC and its allies before 1994.

Among South Africans and foreigners concerned about the ongoing problems and a looming calamity, however, there is a wide range of thoughts about what should happen.

Dr. Stanton of Genocide Watch promised the Afrikaners that he would visit the U.S. Embassy and bring the issue to the attention of world leaders. However, he also urged them not to give up their guns and to continue resisting the communist “ideology” espoused by so many of the political and party leaders that now dominate the nation’s coercive government ­apparatus.

So far, efforts to garner the attention of the “international community” appear to have been largely unproductive. The Dutch Parliament, though, narrowly defeated a recent bill calling for the government of the Netherlands to investigate and help combat racist violence directed at Afrikaners in South Africa by offering expertise and judiciary support while helping to preserve threatened basic rights, such as freedom of the press. Despite failing to pass, the effort was taken as a sign that world opinion may be changing, albeit slowly.

Activists are also calling on European governments and the United States to immediately begin accepting especially vulnerable white refugees from South Africa as a high priority. There are less than five million whites left in the country, about 10 percent of South Africans, down from almost a quarter of the population decades ago.

Analysts say that giving them asylum may prove tough politically — partly because it could expose the myths of Nelson Mandela and his communist ANC being “heroic” so-called freedom fighters.

Even if it were possible, millions of white South Africans would refuse to leave the land of their forefathers anyway, at least at this point, knowing that if they left, the Afrikaner culture and language may disappear forever. “Up to a million people have already emigrated, almost as many as left Lebanon during the civil war. However, mass emigration would mean the demise of our nation, together with our unique language, history, literature and culture,” Pro-Afrikaans Action Group (PRAAG) chief Dan Roodt told The New American. “You must also remember that to most of the Western countries, we represent unwanted immigrants, despite being educated, law-abiding and Christian. Despite being persecuted, very few actually get political asylum as the mass media still portray South Africa as a model democracy.”

Like a significant subset of the Afrikaner minority, Roodt wants his people to have their own autonomous homeland in Southern Africa, a proposal that the ANC regime rejects out of hand. “Many of us want to stay and fight and turn the tables on this anachronistic left-wing, racist regime,” explained the controversial Afrikaner advocate.

Other South Africans hope the international community will intervene to protect persecuted minority groups — either militarily if the downward spiral continues, or at least through sanctions and diplomatic pressure. 
More than a few sources who spoke to The New American said foreign action is a necessity: They view South Africa as a sort of “canary in the coal mine.” The Rainbow Nation might be the first to go, but Western civilization, they say, will not be far behind.

Unsurprisingly, the establishment press has barely reported a word about the looming potential catastrophe in South Africa. However, there is hope: Activists say that if Americans get involved, even just helping to raise awareness, a bloodbath of apocalyptic proportions may well be averted.

It will certainly not be easy to roll back the blood-red tide of communism and genocide in South Africa. The roots have been firmly planted, nurtured by Western governments and communist tyrants for decades. 
But for South Africans of all colors, and for humanity itself, activists insist that the battle must go on. It will.
