Apartheid 2.0: The Unspoken Tragedy

“The Americans fight for a free world, the English mostly for honor and glory and medals, the French and Canadians decide too late that they have to participate. The Italians are too scared to fight; the Russians have no choice. The Germans for the Fatherland. The Boers? Those sons of bitches fight for the hell of it.”

-American General, George “Guts and Glory” Patton

Today, the Boers are the forgotten sons of the rainbow nation. If Apartheid was the reign of white-on-black terror, the cycles have now reversed.

Ever since communist ANC leader and global icon Nelson Mandela won the democratic presidential election in 1994 to become the first black president in the country, white Afrikaners have been the subject of torture, rape, and terror .

Since Nelson Mandela and the African National Congress  took over South Africa, more than 70,000 whites have been murdered and untold numbers have been robbed, raped and tortured.

For the whites, break-ins at residential properties have been one of the biggest sources of fear.

Break-ins at residential properties are the third biggest crime in the country, according to the crime stat published by South African Police Service with over a quarter of a million cases reported.  Common assaults, commercial crimes, and attempted murders have seen a 2.2, 3.1 and 3.4 percent growth respectively since 2015.

Crime—murder, robbery, and rape—is rampant. South Africa has the second highest rape rate in the world  and the second highest murder rate, making the country more dangerous than most parts of Iraq.

The white-on-black crimes are now the black-on-white crimes.

The historical oppression of blacks could be driving this reverse cycle of black-on-white hate.

As previously reported in Inquisitr, farm murders are up for the fifth straight year in a row while farm attacks are down.   In 2015, 62 farm murders were reported while there were 270 farm attacks. In 2014, there were 61 farm murders and 279 farm attacks.The South African government has yet to do anything to stop farm murders;

What they have forgotten is that the alternative to bad morality is not any morality, but good morality.

Just because their great-grandfathers were tortured by people of another race thirty years ago, does not mean it is their utmost obligation to take revenge on their current generation.

But the communist ANC, despite so much opposition, fails to understand this even today.

Jacob Zuma, a president as good as Dilma Rousseff, still remains the icon for many black people.

Ever since he has become the president, the number of reported rape cases have remained over 42,000 every year, according to the National Crime statistics.

Paul Kruger’s statue has been defaced many times in this new apartheid state.

Immigration has been the only solution left to the white Afrikaners, yet it can not be afforded by all.

More than 400,000 white South Africans are thought to live in poverty.  The country’s population is about 50 million. Those living in squalid conditions are forced to survive on around £28.99 a month. The whites make up only 9% of the entire population.
The only other option available to them is to stay put and sustain the menace that is ravaging their culture, means of living, and their history in the country.

Sports, which have played a unifying role in the country in 1995, when the South African Rugby team, popularly known as the Springboks, won the Rugby World Cup at home in front of a first time democratically-elected country, is now racially oriented.

The South African Cricket team issued new racial quotas in 2015 to select at least six black or colored people, in addition to five whites. Previously it was compulsory to field at least seven non-white players.

This has severely hampered the chances of prospective white cricketers in the country pursuing cricket. Some migrate to England, Australia, Scotland to play county cricket while some stay behind, acknowledging the present scenario.

The economics in the country are in the process of a meltdown.

The GDP growth rate has never passed the 2% mark for the last three years. They even lost the tag of being the biggest economy on the continent to Nigeria, only to retrieve it a couple of months earlier.

They currently sit at 1.3 %.

Chevron, Shell, and other petroleum companies now only allow black operators to own fuel stations and bully white people out of family businesses, giving them to the young inexperienced black businessmen with a loan from the government. They call them HDSA (Historically disadvantaged South Africans).

Even though apartheid had ended more than 20 years ago, the bulk of these applicants that get generous funding are barely 20 years old themselves.

In short, the mounting homicidal violence against whites, the denial of access to jobs for whites and the erasing of their history and culture were the very ambitions ANC was built on and now, under the rapist Zuma, who once sang, ‘Kill the farmer; Kill the Boer’ , they are hell-bent to materialize their ambitions.
