'A judge has sentenced a 19-year-old white South African to four life terms in jail for killing four black people in a shooting spree in January'
And so he should be!
But the Biased Broadcasting Corporation, over the last 14 years, has yet to comment on the 'other' racist murders in the New South Africa.
To date there have been just over 3000 white farmers, most of Boer origin, murdered on their farms by black assailants. Most of these murders have been accompanied by horrific violence, in fact often sadistic torture, inflicted on the victims. Women, even octogenarian women, and young girls have been violently raped by men who know they are HIV positive (we know this as they have told the victim afterwards that this is the case).
The torture has included pouring boiling water over the victims for hours on end and burning the victim over most of the body with a hot clothes iron. On occasions the perpetrators have sat around getting drunk while watching the victim bleed to death, and even let the spouse of the victim watch this happening. Fingers have been chopped off live victims - just to get a ring. And so the litany goes on.
And a huge proportion of these farmers have been elderly defenseless people.
There have been a total of 31000 attacks.
In 1994, when the ANC were handed the reins of power, there were 85 000 farmers in South Africa - occupying just 6% of the entire land surface. Now there are 13 500 white farmers left occupying less than 1% of the land.
Farms given to black South Africans lie in ruins, buildings plundered for roofing, windows and doors - to build shacks elsewhere; water pumps vandalised and farm equipment either stolen or no longer functioning.
SA has also become a net food importer.
I have often heard people comment that these white farmers deserve what is happening to them because of the way they have treated their farm workers. But the Helen Suzman Foundation (this is that brave white liberal woman who for years was the sole voice in Parliament who spoke out about the vileness of Apartheid), found that 93% of farm workers indicate their relationship with their employer is good.
In fact the workers on SA farms have generally been the recipients of care from their employers that far exceeds what farm workers get elsewhere. Each employee would be allowed to have a home and have his family stay on the farm, would have been given a bit of land for cultivation, allowed to keep a few head of cattle on the farm, be supplied with the basic food needed for the whole family, the wives employed in the farmhouse, and often a group of 3 or 4 farmers would have clubbed together to build a school and employ a teacher for the children. The wages have been poor, but then an average of 10, with 6 dependents each, have been employed on a farm surely at a high cost to the farmer.
Sadly the new employers, those recipients of government largess, the mates of the ANC government, have seen fit not to continue this relationship, and 1.2 million farm workers and their families have been evicted and are now homeless.
There have been cries of a 'Boer Genocide' being orchestrated by the ANC.
The term "genocide" was coined by Raphael Lemkin, a Polish-Jewish legal scholar, in 1943. Defining genocide in 1943, Lemkin wrote:
Generally speaking, genocide does not necessarily mean the immediate destruction of a nation, except when accomplished by mass killings of all members of a nation. It is intended rather to signify a coordinated plan of different actions aiming at the destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups, with the aim of annihilating the groups themselves. The objectives of such a plan would be the disintegration of the political and social institutions, of culture, language, national feelings, religion, and the economic existence of national groups, and the destruction of the personal security, liberty, health, dignity, and even the lives of the individuals belonging to such groups.
Apart from the high rate of murder accompanying attacks on farms, and even in the cities and towns, what else do we have to go along with the concept of genocide.
Economically white South Africans are being strangled. The government has a policy of Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) which has made it almost impossible for whites to get employment. This cancer has spread throughout the Government and has been forced on Business by laws dictating quotas amongst staff that have to reflect the demographics of the country. Affirmative action has made it barely possible for the top white South African Students to gain access to University.
The Afrikaner fanatical, almost religious, support for Rugby (Union) has been attacked with quotas being enforced on the National Team, a continual barrage of politically motivated attempts at removing the name and symbol of a team that is recognised worldwide as the 'Springboks' and lately moves to take away stadiums that are used solely for rugby.
Streets named after Europeans who founded and developed the country or were heroes in the Anglo-Boer War have been changed with a feverish delight - at great cost and whilst large numbers of black men starve.
There are anecdotal reports of Police Officers failing to protect or investigate crimes against white people, refusal to allow them to communicate in their mother language of Afrikaans and even recordings of hate speech and verbal racist attacks on whites by high ranking government officials have surfaced.
Hate speech is part of the new President of the ANC's 'campaign' song where he calls for his machine gun. Even the sainted Nelson Mandela has been recorded on video singing songs about killing whites.
The ANC government is disarming the law abiding (mostly white) citizens while the townships are bursting at the seams with AK 47's and stolen hand guns, and any attempts at self defence are harshly penalised.
That there is a campaign to destroy any vestiges of white culture, economic power or history, can be in no doubt.
But the BBC likes to vilify white South Africans, and has done so for many decades, and finds it necessary to report any white on black violence with such glee and with breathtaking bias against whites. And they are ably assisted by the MSM in South Africa who never fail to mention the colour of the perpetrator if he is white, but do not do so if he is black.
