The ethnic cleansing of white farmers in South African by black nationalists empowered by their government is beginning to gain significant international attention. It is an issue which the alternative media has played a significant role in highlighting. For many in the mainstream media reporting on the violence and oppression against white people leads to accusations you are a white supremacist.
As we previously reported Canadian commentator Lauren Southern has began 2018 with reports on the ground from South Africa to report on the farm murders. She is also working on a full feature documentary on the topic called Farmlands to be released later in the year.
Now new Rebel Media recruit Katie Hopkins has also visited South Africa to report for the Rebel on the plight of white farmers.
Hopkins has already had a successful media career has a columnist for various UK national newspapers had was a presenter on LBC talkback radio. In a nation where free speech is being every increasingly limited Hopkins has proven herself fearless is discussing the problems the UK is facing, particularly increased Islamic immigration.
Hopkins was announced as a new recruit for the Rebel at the beginning of 2018 and is arguably their highest profile recruit so far. Her hiring follows a tumultuous 2017 for Rebel Media which saw the high profile departures Lauren Southern, co-founder Brian Lilley, Laura Loomer and in controversial circumstances Faith Goldy and Caolon Robertson. With now Hopkins and Tommy Robinson on the Rebel’s UK staff it demonstrates that Rebel is eager to bounce back in 2018.
Hopkins trip to South Africa is only brief (2 weeks) but is releasing daily video reports where she is eager to communicate the danger that white farmers face on the ground. She is traveling with an extensive security detail and one of her videos demonstrates a drill where her convoy gets fired upon.
She is speaking with not just the victim of farm attacks but also the perpetrators. She is also wanting to still bring messages of hope as there are still farms in South Africa where blacks and whites work together.
From her commentary it is clear that the Rebel is trying to showcase more extensive coverage that their former employer Southern is bringing. But of course the more coverage these farm murders obtain the more there might be some international pressure on the South African government to stop this racist persecution of people who should be regarded as the feeders of the nation.
In neighboring Zimbabwe their government has gone full circle in this practice as after former President Robert Mugabe’s land reform led to food shortages and hyperinflation the new President has decided to give back the farm land to white farmers along with a formal apology.
There still appears time to save South Africa from the same fate and one hopes that both Southern’s and Hopkins’ coverage can impact change.
