What in the Hell is Wrong with White People?
The government of South Africa has begun seizing white-owned farms. This is on top of an escalating series of horrifying attacks on white farmers there. Which hasn’t been enough to move the world to intercede. There’s been no serious outcry from the media, “human rights” groups, or even white people in general. Why does the “outcry” need to come from white people? It doesn’t, but they–we–tend to be at the forefront of publicizing systematic abuses. Except apparently when fellow white people’s property and lives are at stake! I’m not going to get into the reasons why white people are astonishingly silent when “their own” are subject to outrageous abuses. That’s the subject of another day. Today I just want to point out this incredible SILENCE and ask you, the reader, are you silent, and if so, why? Is it because you didn’t know this was going on? That is quite likely, given the news blackout. I just did a search and couldn’t find ANY major “mainstream” sites that are reporting this. So that begs the next question: Why are you dependent on news sources that don’t actually report pertinent news? Maybe you’re not aware that this is the case. I assure you, it is. And let’s say you DO know that this is going on, or at least have heard that the South African government had been considering this move for some time. Then why not help publicize it, or protest it, or something? Are you afraid to stand up for white people? Has the media, and the entertainment culture convinced you that they “have it coming”? Do you feel some form of guilt, for slavery, or Jim Crow laws?
History is brave, but the present day is cowardly.And this kind of behavior is not unique to white people. I remember hearing of the horrible genocide in Rwanda, where one black group (Hutus) massacred another black group (Tutsis). The world stood by and watched. Only AFTER the fact did we really hear about what happened, and movies like Hotel Rwanda came out. We know about the Holocaust. At least most people who haven’t given their souls over to hating Jews do. We know–or many of us do–about the Armenian Genocide at the hands of the Turks. The list goes on, including of course, mass killings by Communist regimes in the 20th Century. Hollywood and the media don’t like to talk about this much due to their left-leaning proclivities. But what we need to do–every race, creed, and color–is gather the courage to confront ugly realities IN THE MOMENT, instead of making a movie about it later. That is, IF we truly care about our fellow human beings–no matter their race.
a holocaust in the makingThe marginalizing and preparation to seize the land of white farmers in South Africa has been going on for a long time. Nelson Mandela himself had been a Central Committee Member of the South African Communist Party. And his African National Congress (ANC) received backing from the Soviet Union. Mandela did famously seek racial reconciliation in South Africa between the former white majority under Apartheid (which he had fought for many years) and black South Africans:
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion.” –Nelson MandelaUnfortunately, Mandela gave over the day-to-day operation of the country to others who were not so forgiving, and the situation deteriorated after his death. Today, Julius Malema–who was expelled from the ANC (which should tell you he’s trouble)–has been pushing the ruling ANC to back the policy of taking land from the white farmers without compensation, and they have indeed backed the policy. And now, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has started to enact the policy. I reported that former U.S. President Barack Obama gave a speech in South Africa in July, where he actually PRAISED Ramaphosa for “inspiring great hope in this country.” No surprise that the media barely reported this. And as bad as Ramaphosa is, Julius Malema is worse. He’s head of the popular Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), who are hoping to seize power in next year’s elections. In 2016, Malema 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!” South Africa’s present–particularly for minority whites–is horrible. And its future is shaping up to be a living hell. Your move–world. And when I say “world,” I’m talking first to you, white folks, since, as I mentioned earlier, you’re–we’re–typically at the forefront of great social movements. I found information on Twitter @HelpSAFarmers, and on Facebook @stopwhiteSAgenocide. Check them out. Will you speak up now, white people, or just make a movie about it later to assuage your guilt?
