Zille blames ANC Youth League for unrest

(Article from IOL News)

Western Cape premier Helen Zille on Thursday accused the ANC Youth League of fomenting unrest in the province.
“I have very little doubt that all of the violent disruption was directly linked to the ANC Youth League's call (to make the Western Cape ungovernable),” Zille told reporters in Cape Town, after the league marched in the city for better service delivery on Monday.
“And one of the clearest proofs of that is the day they said ok, we're not protesting, it all stopped, and when they pressed the on-button it all started again.”
Zille said residents of poor areas had routinely told her they were visited and told to vandalise property.
She and others, including security agencies, had handed evidence to the police, but there was a reluctance to charge members of the league.
“There is a selective application of justice sometimes in this society.
“I don't think the president is going to say anything about the ANC Youth League in the run-up to Mangaung. I think a lot of this is about Mangaung, and obviously it is about 2014,” she said referring to the ANC's elective conference and the next election year.
Zille said the league was trying to step into a leadership vacuum in the Western Cape, and targeting the Democratic Alliance administration to draw attention to itself.
“It is about the big internal battle in the ANC, and they can't make their name trying to fight each other, that's why they take on Zille. That's why they are marching. It's all about 2014 and all about Mangaung.
“And that is why Jacob Zuma won't rein in the ANC Youth League because he can only afford to alienate Julius Malema so much. He has lost the youth league.”
Zille insisted she would not meet the youth league unless it withdrew its threat to make the province ungovernable.
“I have made it clear that as soon as the ANC Youth League withdraws its threats to make Cape Town ungovernable, I will come and meet them.
“If I go down and meet them... I'm saying you can threaten to make things ungovernable, you can stone buses, destroy traffic lights, you can burn things on railway lines, but that is fine... we can sit down and have a cozy chat.”
Zille called the media briefing to rebut the league's allegations that the DA administration did not deliver to the poor.
“We take the taxpayers' money that we get and we redistribute it massively to the poor people.”
She said the Western Cape government spent 71 percent of its education budget and 78 percent of its health budget on the poor. In these two areas, its successes included slashing mother to child transmission of HIV to one percent, and the number of underperforming schools from 85 percent to 30 percent in two years. - Sapa

Friends of North Korea II

This article is the second part of  Friends of North Korea.

In April this year, South Africa's Deputy Minister of Police; Maggie Sotyu attended the centenarry celebrations of the birth of Kim Il Sung at the North Korean embassy in Pretoria. 
Kim Il Sung is the deceased 'Great Leader' of North Korea who still holds the title of 'Eternal President' even though he has been in his grave for 18 years.

The Deputy Minister of Police compared the dead dictator to Nelson Mandela, stating that both are the father of their respective nations and that the "similarities mentioned of these two great nations extend beyond symbolic boundaries or gestures. They are deeply embedded in our existence and our history as respective nations."

She went on to say that "it must never come as a surprise to antagonists and ill-informed critics when they question the relationship the democratic South Africa has with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Both RSA and (the) DPRK share fundamental values of revolutionary principles for liberation, people's welfare and sovereignty of people and country."

The Deputy Minister of Police refers to North Korea as a 'great nation' which cares about its 'people's welfare.'
A country where hundreds of thousands or now in death camps and labour camps and where experimental biological weapons are tested on live subjects, including entire families at a time in glass cages. A place where the people are almost walking skeletons and millions have died from famine. Selling food can get you arrested in this great nation.

The Deputy Minister concluded; "let me re-affirm on behalf of our ANC-led Government, that South Africa continues to avail herself the opportunity to renew to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea the assurance of our highest consideration to cooperate and partner for the sake of all our peoples' livelihood and our countries' prosperity, respectively."

Friendly relations with North Korea are not only limited to the ANC and government but also include the ANC Youth League who have said they "unapologetically support North Korea."

Earlier this year, representatives of the ANC Youth League visting North Korea in an official capacity for their organisation referred to South Korea as a 'puppet regime' of American imperialism.
“We say so because, we know that the creation of the Korean Republic or South Korea is not the desired outcome of the people of Korea, but the creation of imperialism, hence its borders are still guarded by the US military,”

The ANCYL also thanked North Korea for the support it gave the ANC during apartheid:
“We are certain that the working people of South Africa, who are struggling to defeat the legacies of Apartheid, who want free, compulsory and quality education, decent housing,shelter, health, clothing, nationalisation of mines and other key sectors of our economy are with you in your struggle to first unify your country and inspire the freedoms of all in the world under a just and equitable world order.”

The ANCYL regards the system of North Korea as 'just and equitable' and of being one of 'freedom'.
This is a place where saying anything against the state or in contravention of its policies could lead to public execution by firing squad or a death camp.
A land where people are required to have 'self-cristicism' meetings every week in order to list all their failings in front of their friends and family so that everyone can openly condemn each other and create a further atmosphere of distrust and paranoia.

This is a place of freedom where the televisions have one TV channel which loops military parades over and over again and only broadcasts government programs with blurred visuals of the outside world.

The ANCYL went on to say that said Kim Jong-il saved his people from joblessness, homelessness and poverty.
North Korea is a country which has had one of the worst famines in recent history, killing millions and leading to the stunted growth of an entire generation.
North Koreans are now on average considerably shorter than South Koreans even though there are no genetic differences between North and South Koreans.
People literally eat grass in this place and most people only have one pair of clothes.

However, even after reading these examples and those listed in the previous article, there will of course still be apologists for Communism.
It is after all the perfect system........for a dictatorship or one-party state.

An impoverished and hungry population is more pliable and easier to control because the Party controls the food source.
Wealthy corporations, businesses and businessmen can fund resistance and opposition to government so are therefore a threat to totalitarian rule. The remedy for this is to abolish private ownership or impose severe limits and taxes.
That way, everyone owns almost nothing and is poor.

The state then controls all the wealth and can reward its followers accordingly. This allows the state to have better leverage over the population. The result is that the state controls all food and wealth.
The state therefore has the monopoly on all wealth.
Your life, wellbeing and chance of education are then totally in the hands of the Party.

The ideal Communist is a person who is expected to accept their lot in life, not expect much, endure their work and to strive to contribute resources and materials to better the state. 
The individual does not matter, but rather the collective and the well-being of the state.

Communism is the ultimate system for a dictator or cabal to rule with absolute control and no accountability over a dumbed-down and poor population.

Genocide Watch warns of White Genocide in SA

(Article from The New American)

While most of the world refuses to acknowledge what is happening in largely communist-controlled South Africa, the non-profit group Genocide Watch declared last month that preparations for genocidal atrocities against white South African farmers were underway and that the early phases of genocide had possibly already begun. In the long run, Genocide Watch chief Dr. Gregory Stanton explained, powerful communist forces also hope to abolish private-property ownership and crush all potential resistance. 

According to experts and official figures, at least 3,000 white farmers in South Africa, known as Boers, have been brutally massacred over the last decade. Many more, including children and even infants, have also been raped or tortured so savagely that mere words could not possibly convey the horror. And the problem is growing worse, international human rights monitors and South African exiles say.

The South African government, dominated by the communist-backed African National Congress (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 the so-called “Rainbow Nation.” 

In many cases, the murders are simply classified as “burglaries” 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 cover-ups, 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 perpetrators are found to be affiliated with the ruling ANC or its youth wing. 

Experts are not buying the government’s cover-up. "The farm murders, we have become convinced, are not accidental," said Dr. Stanton of Genocide Watch during a fact-finding mission to South Africa last month. 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 that will try and determine who is planning these murders."

Indeed, most honest 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 slammed 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 — as people who do not belong there.

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, experts believe. "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 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 raised its alert level for South Africa from stage five to stage six — the eighth and final stage is denial after the fact — 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.” 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. 

After the calls to genocide made international headlines, the South African Supreme Court ruled that the song advocating murder of whites was unlawful hate speech. Incredibly, the President of South Africa, ANC’s Jacob Zuma, then began singing it early this year too. 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.”

"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 are portrayed as an “enemy,” Stanton explained about the march to genocide. And that phenomenon is ever-more apparent in South Africa, leading Genocide Watch to classify South Africa as being close to the final stages of genocide in July of this year.  

The issue of land distribution, which has become one of the key drivers of the downward spiral, is also 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 re-distribution that has occurred — like in neighboring Zimbabwe — has largely resulted in failure.

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, like virtually everywhere else where forcible land redistribution has been adopted, has even broader goals.

“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 had 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."

Meanwhile, the South African government is stepping up efforts to disarm the struggling white farmers, too — stripping them of their final line of defense. 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 last month. “Disarmament of a targeted group is one of the surest early warning signs of future genocidal killings.” 

The exile 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. 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 white farmers, that is a virtual death sentence, with widespread rape and HIV infections being the norm.  

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

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.

Activists and exiles argue that many 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. Meanwhile, experts say that the government is encouraging the problem, actively discriminating against whites, and in many cases even facilitating the on-going atrocities.

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), he began a ruthless war against the white population and his political opponents. 

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 murdered tens of thousands of victims, and estimatessuggest that millions have died as a direct result of Mugabe’s Marxist policies. 

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.

Not all South Africans — especially city dwellers — are convinced that there is an on-going genocide in their country, or even that one may be coming. Indeed, the vast majority of blacks and whites would simply like to live in peace with each other, and there are plenty of other problems facing South Africa at the same time. However, virtually everyone agrees that without solutions, the precarious situation in the “Rainbow Nation” will continue to deteriorate, going from bad to worse.

Many activists seeking to draw attention to the issue are 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 in the country, about 10 percent of the population, down from almost a quarter decades ago. Analysts say that giving them asylum, however, may prove tough politically — partly because it could expose the precious establishment myths of Nelson Mandela and his ANC as being “heroic” so-called “freedom fighters.” 

Unsurprisingly, the establishment press has barely reported a word about the looming potential calamity. And by the time the world media finally catch on, many analysts worry that it might be too late. 

How ANCYL plans to shut down Cape

(Excerpts from article in the Daily Voice)

The ANC Youth League will shut down Cape Town by mobilising thousands of supporters to block the main highways in and out of the city.

Youth League leaders will cause traffic gridlock mayhem by taking over strategic parts of the N1 and N2.
Buses and taxis will also be taken off the road - meaning no one will be able to get to work on the day.

And thousands of fedup residents from Khayelitsha, Langa, Mfuleni and other townships will be mobilised for a massive march on the city.

Youth League supporters, the ANC Women’s League, Cosatu and numerous taxi associations will also take part in the unprecedented mass action.

"We will not back down or retreat from the statements we have made to make this province ungovernable.
It is those people who burn traffic lights that we want on our side on the day.

We TR Section residents have the privilege of living next to the N2 and we can take control of it easily. On that day everything has to stop - nothing will happen on the day.

ANC Youth League declares war on Western Cape

(Article from IOL News)

The ANC Youth League has declared war on Helen Zille’s provincial government.
The battle lines were drawn on Thursday after the arrest of two ANC members at a service delivery protest.
ANC Youth League members say if they do not get satisfactory answers from Zille about improving their living conditions by next week Tuesday, they will make the city ungovernable.
They have vowed to bring the province to its knees using the following tactics:
* Stopping all residents from going to work;
* Preventing any and all Golden Arrow buses and taxis from operating;
* And forcing all government cars off the road.
“We have given the Provincial Government seven days to respond to the memorandum,” says ANCYL Regional Committee member Loyiso Nkohla.
“If the attitude is positive then we will report that to the people but if it is not, we will shut this city down.”
He was speaking to the Daily Voice outside of Lingelethu-West Police Station where they demanded the two ANC men be released.
Loyiso says: “When we arrived here to enquire about the arrest of two of our members, we were shot at by those police.
“This tradition by the police to respond with violence does not help the situation.
“We know how to fight back; if and when the time comes for us to fight with the police we will do so.”
Late on Thursday night, reports emerged that the arrested men – Ward 90 councillor Luvuyo Hebe and ANCYL Branch sector secretary Khaya July – were released. But police were unable to confirm this.
City of Cape Town officials say they will not tolerate lawlessness from any organisation.
“The City will not stand idly by while organisations and individuals actively break the law,” says Mayor Patricia de Lille’s spokesman Solly Malatsi.
“It is for this reason that we have laid charges against the ANCYL and the four other organisations that have threatened to make the city ‘ungovernable’.
“The full might of the law must take its course against individuals or organisations that instigate violence in the metro.”
Earlier in the day, Site B resident shut down Mew Way and Pama Road in a service delivery protest.
Community members from TR and Z sections woke up in the early hours and disrupted morning traffic by stoning passing cars and buses.
A group of about 100 residents marched from Mfuleni to the Nuwe Begin housing development.
People chanted: “Zille, you are a whore” and “your governance is stupid.”
Once there, the group was met by an army of armed police officers who prevented them from storming into the yard and causing havoc in the area.
Another group had already started burning tyres and rubbish along Pama Road in Khayelitsha.
Armed Metro Police officers dispersed the crowds by firing rubber bullets.
Hebe and July were taken into custody and hauled off in a cop van shortly after their arrival.

ANC campaign to make Western Cape 'Ungovernable'

(Excerpts from IOL News)

This threat comes against the backdrop of a number violent service delivery protests that have taken place in the city in recent days.”

On Friday, the Dullah Omar region of the African National Congress Youth League delivered a memorandum to the office of the premier on behalf of itself, the ANC, the ANC Women's League, the Cape Amalgamated Taxi Association and the Congress of Democratic Taxi Associations.

Zille said the memorandum contained a threat on the fifth page, which read: “We demand that the above-mentioned demands be positively responded to within seven working days. Failure to do so (and) the young people and the above-mentioned stakeholders will make this city and province ungovernable! Amandla!”
