Malema "not calling for the slaughter of white people‚ at least for now"

Dieuwe de Boer

This was said a year ago by Julius Malema, a political party leader who has long been calling for the "land expropriation" that is now coming into effect. Apartheid is returning to South Africa:

South Africa’s parliament has voted in favour of a motion that will begin the process of amending the country’s Constitution to allow for the confiscation of white-owned land without compensation.

The wonders of democracy are on display here: taking land from a small minority? It's perfectly fine because the majority has determined that it is completely legal.

The motion was brought by Julius Malema, leader of the radical Marxist opposition party the Economic Freedom Fighters, and passed overwhelmingly by 241 votes to 83 against.

To call Malema the opposition is a bit rich, he's just a splinter faction of the ANC who doesn't think that white genocide is happening fast enough. The fact that the motion had overwhelming support goes to show that this is just media spin to make it sound like the Marxists aren't running the place.

Mr Malema has been leading calls for land confiscation, forcing the ANC to follow suit out of fear of losing the support of poorer black voters. In 2016, he told supporters he was “not calling for the slaughter of white people‚ at least for now”.

The tribal electorate has been sitting on stagnant economic growth since the end of apartheid, while their corrupt political leaders amass millions. Now they want a piece of the pie too. For a limited time only, Marxism is bringing Zimbabwe 2.0 to a South Africa near you. Conditions have been deteriorating over time, with many white Afrikaners leaving the country over the last few decades. Currently a notorious "farm attack" happens almost every single day. You can learn more by watching Lauren Southern's Farmlands series.

The question is, what can be done about it?

Disclaimer: To the culturally uninformed, my last name might look like I come from South African, that couldn't be further from the truth, in fact, it's a very uncommon last name in SA. My lineage can be traced back hundreds of years ago, to humble Frisian farmers, which is where "de Boer" comes from, it's simply Dutch for "the farmer." There is no record of any of my ancestors ever going to or returning from South Africa. With that out of the way, let's start the history lesson.

In 1652, the Dutch East India Company established a trading post on the Cape of Good Hope, the southern tip of the African continent. In 1795, as the French occupied the Seven Provinces of the Netherlands, the British Royal Navy moved in and seized the Cape Colony after defeating the Dutch militia. In 1824 farmers of Dutch, French Huguenot and German descent known as "Voortrekkers" (later named Boers by the British) walked from the Cape Colony, seeking pasture for their flocks and to escape British governmental oversight, undertaking the Great Trek northward and forming independent republics on land granted to them by the Botswanans initially, and adding further conquests to that from wars with various tribes who moved in and out of the area. The British had a policy to unite South Africa, and as they expanded northward they inevitably clashed with the Zulu, who were aggressively expanding southward. In the closing decades of the nineteenth century, having defeated the Zulu, the British turned their eyes to the Boer Republics, resulting in the First and Second Anglo-Boer Wars, where Britain, supported by her colonies like New Zealand, lost the first war, but came back a decade later and crushed the Boer Republics with scorched-earth tactics and concentration camps. What followed was the Union of South Africa in 1910, under British rule, and then the independent apartheid-era Republic of South Africa in 1948, followed by the post-apartheid Republic of South Africa in 1994.

The settlers and farmers were bold, like their counterparts who landed in North America, and took the name of the continent: they called themselves "Afrikaners" (Africans). While many have left in recent decades, with 50,00 of the South African diaspora living in New Zealand,  most don't want to go anywhere. They want to keep their homes and continue to build of the life their ancestors carved out for them. They've been there almost twice as long as we have been in New Zealand.

The African tribes had been at war since the beginning. The new Africans in Transvaal and Cape Colony fought each other and the other Africans for nearly a century too. Ethnic cleansing, genocide, and tribalism have been part of the land since the beginning. It's time to put a stop to it once and for all.

There are two options, excluding white genocide and the exodus of over four million white refugees from South Africa, followed by another four million coloured refugees, one million Asian refugees, and probably several million black refugees who will either face death or simply don't want to live in a communist turd-world country.

The first is a return to the old system of several independent republics and nation states. Each black African tribe could have their own nation and the white Africans could have a nation or two of their own as well.

The second is military intervention, followed by several generation of administrative government to allow time to purge the racism, tribalism, and Marxism from their systems. Having a vassal state rich in resources would be very beneficial and it can be achieved under the guise of humanitarianism. As part of the British Empire, New Zealand has invaded South Africa twice before. You know what they say: third time's a charm.
