The story we are told about modern South Africa is that after the apartheid regime ended and Nelson Mandela became the nation’s President that it’s racist history was a thing of the past a new era of racial harmony had been ushered in.
But the reality of what is occurring South Africa is that the old racism has been replaced by a new racism. Despite apartheid ending nearly 25 years ago the black majority of the nation still holds major grievances against the white minority including those who were not in a position to enable apartheid and often perpetrated by blacks who did not experience apartheid.
Many people don’t like to talk about discrimination and racism against white people. The left claim it doesn’t exist and if it does it is only to correct oppression that nonwhites have faced throughout history. Also discussing racism against whites leads to accusations you must be some sort of white supremacist, even though you are only speaking out against all forms of racism.
In South Africa racism against whites has not just confined itself to affirmative action programs and diversity quotas. Now it has escalated to confiscating the properties of whites and even violence and murder. This is all sanctioned by the ruling African National Congress, another minor party in South Africa the Economic Freedom Fighters which is led by former ANC member Julius Malema who has previously been convicted of hate speech recently stated that whites would not be slaughtered “for now”.
The whites in South Africa who have been experienced this form of racism the worst are the farmers. President Jacob Zuma has called for the confiscation of white farmers’ land without compensation in March 2017. High profile black politicians have sang the song “Shoot the Farmer, Kill the Boer” which was a black liberation revolutionary song.
With senior politicians now singing a song which has been deemed an incitement to genocide it is not surprising that South African gangs have taken upon themselves to engage in violent assaults, robbery, torture, rape and murder of white farmers on their own property.
The increasing frequenting of the farm attacks now means that a white farmer is 4 times more likely to be murdered than the average South African (in a nation which has one of the highest crime rates in the world). This makes farming the most dangerous profession in South African. The death toll for 2017 stands at 72 with 340 farm attacks in total with an attack on average occurring every day.
Because of the surge in these horrific attacks and the incitement to violence by the South African government it has led to AfriForum a civil rights organisation for the local white Afrikaner population staging a Black Monday protest at major roads with convoys of hundreds of slow-moving trucks throughout South Africa in October 2017. The government’s response to this protest was just to simply call it racist.
The murder of white farmers in South Africa has occasionally filtered through to the mainstream media, but it has certainly not garnered the same international outrage and attention that a genocide against nonwhites would receive. The BBC claimed that the white farmers claims about their increased murder rate were exaggerated.
It has been largely up to the alternative media and citizenry journalists to help expose to the rest of the world the true horror of what is occurring in South Africa. One alt-media personality aims to bring the raw stories from the farmers themselves to a global audience.
Canadian conservative commentator Lauren Southern has began 2018 by being on location in South Africa to produce both reports and a full feature documentary about the South African farm murders. In addition to this she is also planning to release her first full feature documentary Fortress London about the increased terror threat in the city and what the city will look like in 10 years.
Lauren Southern was one of Rebel Media’s most popular personalities and gained widespread notoriety for her public confrontations with feminist activists in Canada. She decided to become an independent commentator at the beginning of 2017 and crowdfunded her journalism on Patreon. However she was kicked off the platform in August over her association with Defend Europe, an organisation which aims to stop the flow of illegal boat arrivals into the continent. She has since launched her own membership website and has been able to continue to fund her work.
She has just released her first video report from South Africa focusing on the story of Jeanine whose father was murdered on his farm property by being repeatedly shot. The perpetrator who had murdered another white farmer was only sentenced to 15 years in jail and can get out in 6 to kill again. Jeanine rather than fleeing has stayed on the farm to continue her family’s farming legacy.
For her reporting of the white murders Southern has been accused of selective journalism given that racially motivated discrimination and violence occurs to many different groups including those residing in western countries. She has defended her coverage by saying they get more than enough mainstream media attention and her job as alt-media personality is to cover stories and injustices they won’t.
Nobody can argue whatever crimes were committed against the local black population during apartheid that it justifies crimes against humanity being committed against whites in the present. Southern’s reports will be a timely reminder to the world that injustices can be perpetrated against whites and that racism against whites can have deadly results.
