I've been friends with a woman in South Africa since the 1980's so I kind of pay attention to what goes on there.  Her description of S.A. since the end of apartheid differs significantly from the media's depiction which shouldn't surprise anyone, really.

If you haven't heard, last week the government of south africa kicked the Boers off of their land.  The Boers are still being held responsible for any mortgage notes on the land that they no longer own but most of them have said, fuck off.

Generally speaking, when something like this happens, you can start the clock on the famine and genocide.  My friend isn't a farmer but she and her husband have faced relentless abuse and discrimination since the end of apartheid.  They left the country several times because her husband could not get a job because he's white.  They own, for the moment, a house so they returned from Tanzania because they got tired of malaria and they'd hoped things had settled down in S.A. during their absence.

It hasn't.

UPDATE: White South Africans face genocide...

Their eldest daughter got a job as an au pair in North Carolina, she arrives the end of this month so she's safe for a while.  The rest of them are stuck in S.A.  One of the reasons behind my sudden interest in cryptocurrency is the possibility it offers for me to get them money fast hopefully without governmental interference. 

US history in regard to refugees of genocide is spotty, at best, so getting them out of there seems hopeless.  Given that almost no mainstream media coverage of this is happening, it seems unlikely to me that unka sam will give the same warn welcome he's been giving to somalis or syrians and I doubt any of the EU will, either.  Maybe the Dutch but I doubt it.

There has been coverage of the events in S.A.  It's come from independent journalists on Youtube and my admiration for Youtube grows despite it's hostility toward (classical)liberal and conservative views.  It's come a long way from cat videos... if you care to look about.

One of the more prominent independent journalists is Lauren Southern.  Here's some of her work on current events in S.A.

A Boer is a white farmer in south africa.  The government of south africa has confiscated the lands and property of the white farmers/ranchers in S.A. in order to give it to blacks.

The killings have been happening for years now but have gotten much worse recently.  They are done by mobs of blacks roving around.  The mob targets a farm, moves in and tortures, rapes and murders the occupants and loots.

I suppose that should no longer be a problem now that there are no white farmers in s.a.  However, the people tossed on the street will have to go somewhere and that has been the camps that farmers who survived attacks have fled to.  While there is some safety in numbers, that also means they will be an easy target for genocide and the S.A. government has been using genocidal language.

The government of S.A. is extremely corrupt and life in S.A. has steadily descended toward chaos.  They, like so many other bad governments over the millennia, are using the Boers as scapegoats.  

If history is any guide, there will be famine in S.A. soon although it may not be as bad as I fear.  My friend tells me there are a few farms owned by blacks that are well run.  "A few", however, may not be sufficient to keep prices down low enough for the bottom economic class to get by.  If that is the case, they will riot and if any Boer camps are within reach, the mob will attack and slaughter them.  As was pointed out elsewhere, S.A. has been quite successful in confiscating personal firearms in the country.  The Boers are defenseless.

Mobs love a scapegoat, too, especially disarmed scapegoats.

I remember when I worked at Harvard typing up a letter sent to all colleges across the nation asking them to be in favor of ending apartheid in South Africa.  It's like these people are getting even for all the years of apartheid.  Did whites do to blacks what the blacks are doing now?

What period of time are you referring to?  The Boers arrived long before apartheid.  

You can read of the history of s.a. here:

The US government supported SA during Apartheid. In fact, the CIA was instrumental in the capture of Nelson Mandela. Ronald Reagan was a strong supporter of the South African government under Apartheid and vetoed a bill to place sanctions on South Africa.

Please let this seep into your conscience when you laud Reagan, but think that all black people must denounce Farakkhan. Think about what black people have had to accept from the leaders of this country.

Quite a lot of white South Africans migrated to the area of New Zealand where we live.   I have yet to meet one that I like; they are all despicable and retain their racist attitudes even here where the NZ born population are relatively racially tolerant.  You might think that having left South Africa after apartheid was defeated and going to an essentially bi-racial nation they would do their best to overcome their racist attitudes.  Any who have tried have failed. Being a darkie I have plenty of first hand evidence.  My wife was appalled when one of these female spoke about a Maori woman rather crudely. At that stage this woman didn't realise Rivka was married to a "*Kaffir".  She now shuns her, much to the appreciation of my wife.

When the Boers went to South Africa they acted like a victorious army, stole the land from the natives. 

Well now the descendants of the defeated natives have deposed the descendants of the racist land thieves.

*Kaffir - an insulting Afrikaans word equivalent to nigger.

Worse and for over a couple centuries. When American whites talk about assimilation by foreigners those invading Africa didn't get that note. That being said, revenge is certainly not the answer for any country and I hate seeing this happen after so much hope.

Whites turned a shit hole into a thriving economy in SA. 

It appears to me blacks are trying to turn it back into a shit hole like Zimbabwe ,which is fine with me as long as they aren't allowed to immigrate here and our taxes aren't used to bail them out when they start starving.

thriving economy? For whom?

Have you seen pictures of where blacks were forced to live? 

Are you people not embarrassed to be so ignorant?

The people who were thriving did so because of stolen property, wealth and a system of oppression. 

Please go pick up a book and educate yourself.

you read something like freebird wrote and you just can't help but be sorry for him.

If there were anything that, to my mind, characterizes a rightwinger, it is the depth of hatred in their souls for others. Look at the language freebird uses about people he does know, whose experience he has not lived, but you can just hear the vitriol and contempt dripping from his tongue when he speaks of them.

How does someone get to have such a hateful view of his fellow humans? 

He's not the only one. I just don't get how so many rightwingers have had such bad, shit lives that they have become like this. Freebird is always boasting about how well off he is, but honestly, what is the fucking point of living if you have no soul?

I mean, fuck, it's just so tiresome. What the fuck is SO wrong in this guy's life, because he'll tell you nothing is wrong, that makes him view others with such dislike. Everyone is freebird's enemy, jesus, what is life worth living for if your own fellow human beings are such scum in your eyes?

Google the Great Trek, when the Dutch settlers believed the bible told them to conquest all the land, so off they went and did in one tribe after another.  They killed 10-12,000 Zulus because during the migration of some 6000 or so settlers who wanted the land, the locals resisted and killed some of them.....imagine that?  They started it. Damn Zulus.

Then there is the Second Boer war, whereby Africans were "enlisted" to the tune of about 30,000 or so because the British and Dutch decided to have a war where they live.  Non fighters were rounded up into camps where something like 20,000 more died.  This was around 1899 or 1900. 

So... no, the whites treated the locals swimmingly when they arrived.

You live in country that did the same thing to Native Americans you self righteous ass hole. Do we really need to go back hundreds of years to justify the current behavior of those victimized back then? If so then slave descendants and Native Americans should be kicking your ass off your land. That's assuming you even own a home and are not just living and shitting in the streets like those in Mickey's neighborhood.

Ill let Mickeys response as to your character stand with comments only about the actions of our ancestors.

Our view of the natives who lived here was largely primitive and indicative of the times.  I am not defending any behavior, but we in fact attempted to sign treaties, and allot them land and sovereignty.  Their sovereignty has been quite profitable over the years, and our native americans have a seat at the table in our regulatory process.  In any oil spill or any environmental assessment, tribal authorities have a say even if other people "own" the land, tribes still have rights.  They have a say about use of rivers, railroad, pipeline, highway routing in federal land where we acknowledge their sacred rights. I work with tribes (US) and First Nations (Canada) all the time in oil spill response.  In fact, if you want to get to the end, you better make them happy.

Now you can continue to go fuck yourself in your abject stupidity as Mickey has prescribed.

Mugabe is asking back the white farmers he chased away


https://qz.com/458137/mugabe-is-asking-back-the-white-farmers-he-chased-away/



The country that was once dubbed “the breadbasket of the region” has suffered an estimated $12 billion in lost agriculture production since the land occupations took place and has had to rely on donor handouts and food imports from neighboring countries. At least 1.8 million tonnes of the staple grain, maize, is required annually to feed the nation.

My friends are not yet in immediate mortal danger but it's not far off.  If the government can get away with confiscation of entire farms and ranches, confiscating houses will be no big stretch.

Then they will be homeless with nowhere to go but the camps and no way to contact me.

Some of the leftwingers here are laughing in glee at their plight, and the plights of the farmers, holding them responsible for things they had no part of long ago.  Centuries ago.  It shouldn't surprise me, the lunatic left holds me responsible for things that happened centuries ago.

This thread and the thread about lost boys has finally convinced me the left wing is far worse than I ever imagined.  I have to thank you folks for opening my eyes regarding your true nature.

As loathsome as I found mickeyrat's online persona, I truly believed he was just some sad, lost boy mouthing off things he didn't really believe secure in the basement of his mommy's house.  I thought similar of most of you, that you were probably decent enough folk in real life.

I didn't believe your online personas were accurate reflections of you as individuals. 

I was wrong.
Come to the Dark Side. We have cookies. The advantage of insinuations over hard arguments is that they bypass critical thought. No one can respond precisely to a charge that is utterly vague or to accusers who will envelope any reply in a poisonous fog of further insinuations. ~ David Warren, The Guardian There was a time when there was enough freedom that it hardly mattered which brand of crooks ran government. That has not been true for a long time and that captures an important point. The more powerful the government becomes, the more people are willing to do in order to seize the prize, and the more afraid they become when someone else has control. ~ Glenn Harlan Reynolds “The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it. Power is what all messiahs really seek: not the chance to serve.” ― H.L. Mencken
