3000 White farmers killed in 31000 attacks

More than 3 000 farmers killed in 31 000 attacks. Somebody tell me this is not genocide in slow motion.

There are now less than 13,500 white farmers remaining in the SA countryside occupying less than ONE PERCENT of the entire SA land surface - down from the original 85,000 in 1994 on some 6% of the entire land-surface.

Twelve Ways To Deny A Genocide (Source: Genocide Watch). In every instance, think back to how the ANC handled each item below.

1. Question and minimize the statistics. (murders are classified as random attacks, assaults etc not deliberate killings. The ANC also withholds the true numbers).

2. Attack the motivations of the truth-tellers. (people like us who dare to expose the truth are seen as scaremongering. I think 3000+ murdered farmers is evidence enough).

3. Claim that the deaths were inadvertent. (Back to the 'randomness' aspect i.e. there being no link. It is worth noting that in many instances, at
tacks were done with military precision and nothing was taken. Probably, obtaining ownership of the land was the motive).

4. Emphasize the strangeness of the victims. (farmers are vilified, called racists, violent people deserving to be disposed of. The ANC never condemns these murders. Source Freedom Front Plus).

5. Rationalize the deaths as the result of tribal conflict. (it's a white vs black thing, part of our 'oppressive colonial past').

6. Blame “out of control” forces for committing the
killings. (heard them mention the "third force"?)

7. Avoid antagonizing the genocidists. (keep things mum and try and tackle the problem - maybe - from within).

8. Justify denial in favour of current economic interests. (knowledge of the severity of the truth may lead to a mass exodus from the countryside which will cause an economic implosion a la Zim so it is be
st to downplay the seriousness of the situation while continuing the onslaught).

9. Claim that the victims are receiving good treatment. (say that everything is being done to protect farmers while at the same disbanding the commando units)

10. Claim that what is going on doesn’t fit the definition of genocide. (killings are said to be too random and too slow. Gregory Stanton interviewed on Carte
Blanche begs to differ as does Raphael Lemkin's definition.)

11. Blame the victims. (the farmers bring this upon themselves by abusing their workers).

12. Say that peace and reconciliation are more important that blaming people for genocide. (don't blame blacks for attacking whites. Rather pretend it isn't happening so as to not antagonise the black population demanding the return of 'their' land and also not to alert non-farming whites to the truth).

The Eight Stages of Genocide as told by Gregory Stanton, founder of Genocide Watch (see video).

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.

Farm victims remembered.

'Enough is enough'.

This is the message that South Africa Against Crime Action Group (SAACAG) will deliver on Tuesday when more than 3000 pupils attend a memorial service in remembrance of all the farmers murdered in the country.

The pupils will carry white crosses, one for every farmer killed in the more than 31 000 farm attacks. The children also wrote more than 4 000 letters asking for an end to crime. These letters will be collected and handed to President Motlanthe.

Mr Kobus Hermitage, SAACAG chariman, pointed out in a statement that Mr Nathi Mthetwa, Minister of Safety and Security had stated that South Africans find themselves in a killing field where criminals murdered law-abiding citizens at will. According to Mr Hermitage, this statement by the minister highlights the seriousness of the situation. [translated]

Indeed. Very well done. There already is a massive exodus of Afrikaners from the countryside.
See the report on Afrikaner poverty which shows the large influx of Afrikaners to Gauteng and the Western Cape.
