WELKOM, South Africa The chanting of "Kill the Boer, kill the farmer" at the funeral of the ANC member who coined the phrase is adding more fuel to the political fire here, as the attacks on white farmers continue unabated.
The ethnic cleansing of Southern Africa's commercial farm communities has taken the lives of 1,334 farmers, farm workers and their kin since 1994, the year the ANC took power. The farmers were killed most often in violent, organized attacks, always by young African males. Add to the death toll 12 farmers killed in Zimbabwe and four in Namibia. In 85 percent of the killings, not one item was stolen from the farms and farmhouses.
South African President Thabo Mbeki has called the farm murders of whites "the final stage of the revolution."
Said Dutch journalist Adriana Stuijt, a former anti-apartheid activist based in Holland, "If South Africa's vicious farm murders had occurred in Zimbabwe, these would have been world news. But these 'only' occurred in South Africa, and so the rest of the world remains oddly silent. Post-apartheid South Africa is apparently immune from the usual investigative journalism being conducted in the rest of the Western world."
"Why has the South African farmer become the world's most endangered species?" Stuijt asked. "Why are South Africa's few remaining commercial farmers now most at risk of being murdered in the whole world? They are being murdered at 264 per 100,000 population group. It is the highest in the world! A Nedbank probe recently described these farm attacks as 'deliberately targeting specific homesteads to kill the Afrikaner victims.'"
Stuijt noted that with more than half of South Africa's commercial farmers now already having vacated the sector permanently since 1994, "more than 1 million hectares less maize is also being harvested this year. The entire region with its 120 million people is also plunging headlong into widespread famine. And all these facts are not unrelated."
In the week after the death of ANC member of Parliament Peter Mokaba, 43 the man who coined the ANC slogan "Kill the Boer, kill the farmer" there were at least six known farm attacks in South Africa. The Dent farming couple in KwaZulu-Natal was killed at point-blank range in front of their teen-age son, who then was kidnapped to drive the getaway vehicle. At least five other farms were violently attacked; one attacker was killed, one injured.
Also, a shot was fired at an elderly Afrikaner farmer, and a Tswana farm foreman was tied up, threatened with a crossbow and his firearm stolen.
Cassie Aucamp of the Afrikaner Unity Movement told WorldNetDaily that the Afrikaners never politicized funerals. He asked the ANC to "imagine the uproar if Afrikaners were to start chanting, 'Kill the Xhosas, kill the blacks'" at the next funeral of a murdered farmer.
In response to Aucamp's complaint to the office of the president, Mbeki issued a statement a full five days after the Mokaba funeral, which he had attended, finally condemning the slogan's use as "unacceptable" hate speech.
The South African Human Rights Commission, however, recently ruled that the ANC slogan was not hate speech, but merely an expression of "the constitutional rights to free speech."
South African Policewoman Karen Allen told WorldNetDaily she is concerned about the plight of the farmers.
"The situation is out of control. Where are these farmers going to run to?" she asked.
A South African farming activist with the Transvaal Agricultural Union told WND, "It might indeed be a good idea for the U.S. Congress to hold hearings on the farm killings and extend visas to the Boers to go live in the United States."
Nearly half the number of people killed in 9/11 and not a peep from the media, human rights groups, etc.
Ah, but the black fascists passed gun control a couple of years ago. I believe you can now own only one gun (no pistols or semi-autos) and that must be registered.
Methinks that the natives in South Africa are not swift enough to make the second-order connection. South Africa is on its way to becoming a third-world country. My guess is that 10 years is all it will take.
You mean fourth world; SA reached third world status some time ago. When everything totally breaks down, the UN and/or US troops will be called in to clean up some of the mess, by which time I calculate that we will be paying for maintaining troops in just about every region on earth, except perhaps southern South America and Australia.
It might be a great idea, but neither the spineless U.S. Congress or Bush will do a d*mn thing seeing as they love Mbeki, Mandela, and the rest of the communist ANC crowd. I think South Africa will mirror Zimbabwe in a year or two. Gold and diamond miners better beware too...the ANC is gradually moving towards confiscation of those industries as well. Get your gold now while it's cheap, by the time SA has it's way, production of those commodities will certainly be adversely affected when those industries are nationalized or turned over to "black" groups.
The numbers of AIDS-related deaths are doubling on about an 8-month cycle. But as dementia affects many of those in the tertiary stages, look for deaths to increase from additional outbreaks as well, particularly typhus and Cholera, as in Zimbabwe.
Forget organizing. It's too late for that. They need to get the hell out of Dodge.
How many whites are there in SA, millions, right?
