President Trump’s Big Announcement About South African Farmers

This is a followup post to What in the Hell is Wrong with White People? In this post, I wondered why white people have been so silent regarding the steady killing of white farmers in South Africa, and the taking of their land without just compensation from the South African government. Well, I’m happy to report that at least some white men with courage are standing up. U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted on Wednesday that he’s asked Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to “closely study the South African land and farm seizures and expropriations and the large scale killing of farmers.” The President noted he was reacting to a Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” story during which Carlson said South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has begun “seizing land from his own citizens, without compensation, because they are the wrong skin color. That is literally the definition of racism.” Here’s the full story from World Tribune. I couldn’t find a straight story from big media. The reaction from the “media brotherhood” startled me a bit. I don’t know why–they’re reaction to truth is always the same. Here’s a sample of the kind of crap that’s posing as news these days. Notice the obvious bias from Time.  The title alone says it all…

“President Trump Tweeted About the ‘Large Scale Killing’ of White South African Farmers. That Doesn’t Fit With the Facts”

And Time is just the tip of the iceberg: Here’s The New York Times: “Opinion–Trump’s Vile Ploy on South Africa” Newsweek: “White Nationalists Praise Trump After He Tweets Conspiracy Theory About White South African Farmers” ABC News: “South Africa Blasts Trump Over Racially Divisive Tweets” CNBC: “Trump Hypes Fringe Talking Points About South African Government ‘Seizing Land From White Farmers'” MSN News: “Trump Claims ‘Large Scale Killing of South African Farmers’ Without Evidence” So the media plan is to focus on the “fact” that attacks and murders of farmers are actually going down, so therefore where’s the problem, right? Here’s some numbers from a collection of studies in South Africa. The official government numbers do show attacks going down, but private studies show otherwise. And (Australia) reported an “escalating series of attacks,” as I linked in my original article. I don’t know exactly where the truth lies in relation to attacks and murders of white South African farmers. The actual numbers and trends are just being attacked as an evasion tactic by the media. What I do know is that they are happening, and they’re happening in unacceptable numbers. I’ve seen media reports that also deny the government is beginning to take land without just compensation, even though I cited a reputable report that the government is doing just that. I said there’s been no serious outcry from the media, “human rights” groups, or even white people in general. I have to amend that statement: Based on the headlines I’ve shown above, not only has there been no serious outcry from the media, they’re circling the wagons to protect the corrupt and racist South African government, and to “virtue signal” their supposed love of people of color. I’m also not seeing mainstream articles willing to fully report the intent of the diabolical Julius Malema, head of the radical Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), who I reported are hoping to seize power in next year’s elections. In 2016, Malema, who told supporters he was “not calling for the slaughter of white people‚ at least for now”, has been accused of whipping up racial tensions. “We are taking the future into our own hands,” he told a rally attended by Foreign Correspondent. “Shoot to kill! Shoot to kill! Pow, pow!” Willem Petzer, a South African Boer, and a Christian, has been fighting this battle for some time. Here’s his reaction to President Trump’s announcement. Here is Willem speaking about the plight of the South African farmers on The Jesse Lee Peterson Show. Willem comes across as a sincere young man. I hope that you follow him on YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter, and keep informed about what’s really happening in South Africa. The “mainstream” media certainly isn’t going to do it. And finally, I must apologize to white people, or at least some white people, for asking “What in the Hell is Wrong with White People?”in my last post. Clearly there are some white people with courage, such as President Trump and Willem. These are great examples of courage, and I am blessed to know about them.
