The Right Perspective on Rhodesia & South Africa


TRP on Rhodesia & South Africa by islandshark

The good folks at The Right Perspective regularly have a few gems on the truth about Apartheid South Africa and Africa in general.  Here they speak to Paul from Florida:

  • Rhodesia going from bread basket to basket case.
  • South African government can’t protect the citizens.
  • Inept South African Police.
  • Continuing murders of the most brutal kind.
  • Why aren’t things going better?  It was supposed to after the end of “evil Apartheid”.
  • Jimmy Carter and other communist inspired liberal idiots’ role in the demise of South Africa.

It is good to know that the word is getting out!

Whites Out, and more

Whites Out, Blacks In from Orwellian Culture, with an interesting reference to a Facebook group here called September National Imbizo.

According to the nice folks at SNI,

a few have benefited from fruit of democracy
Which is very revealing of the attitude in many quarters in SA. "Fruit of democracy" is freedom, right? that's what it means to most people. Not so, say some. Democracy must mean my material circumstance must improve, they think. Why? You guys were seriously lied to if you thought freedom meant more free stuff without having to work for it.

According to the minutes of the SNI meeting "Blacks can't be racist!" in other words their efforts to fight racism are geared towards... guess who.

SNI is related in some way to the black consciousness group Blackwash, also still on Facebook despite being an overtly racist organisation. According to their info page:
Blackwash is a collective of blacks, by blacks and for blacks only! We stand for liberation of black people, who want to be liberated. This means amongst others self governance and equitable sharing of our natural resources. But it also means we need to find collective and democratic practices to define and arrive at our final destiny. We understand white supremacy to be at the very foundation of the world capitalist system. White supremacy organizes everyday racism, exploitation, women oppression and destruction of the life. You can’t fight white supremacy without fighting against patriarchy, capitalism, homophobia and self hate at the same time.

We shall walk as we talk. We shall make our own mistakes; we shall learn and improve on our practice. Blackwash stands ultimately for the love of black people and the end of our suffering. We hope to oppress no one, but we shall not dialogue with forces which perpetrate our oppression. It’s a new day Vuka darkie…
Coz 1994 changed fokol!

We focus on South Africa as our immediate challenge, but we won’t stop there. We carry the spirit of Haiti’s slave revolt of 1884 in our souls and as an antidote to white supremacy. We believe what white supremacy has done to Haiti in the past 200 years is the story of black people the world over.

Blackwash’s first project is a counter-culture initiative that will uses unapologetic and vulgar T-Shirts to scream these truths from the margins. We scream that the honeymoon period of senseless t-shirts, music and other culture platforms is over. The Fuck project uses these accepted youth culture arenas to fight back.
Any group that holds up Haiti as a model to imitate must have a screw loose, but it must not be forgotten that the Haitian slave revolt - which took place in 1791, by the way, not 1884 - resulted in the slaughter of most of the whites in the colony. Ok, maybe the slave owners deserved their wrath, you may say, but surely not their wives and children too.

Given their complaints, it's hard to know what groups like Blackwash expected when the New South Africa came about. Did they really think - particularly given their massive numbers - that SA's blacks would become middle class and have cars and houses and TVs and everything else? Reading sites like that, it's hard to believe they didn't. Which of course justifies crime and theft on the grounds that others have taken the share of the pie that's due to them.

Given their hostility to Capitalism, it's hard to imagine from whence they believed this wealth was to come. In fact, it's hard to believe groups like this are doing anything other than stirring up hatred, and they may well succeed. Beware, South Africa.

SA Police anti-white racism and brutality

from Censorbugbear

Police anti-white racist attack against Van Wyk family, Dec 25 2010, Brits – Van Wyk couple dumped in Brits SAPS cells, racially abused, threatened with rape:

VanWykcouple racistabuse BRITS SAPS cells Dec 25 2010 ELSA LOURENS GOT THEM OUT OF JAIL Statement by Brits Freedom Front Plus councillor Elsa Lourens

On December 25 2010 Jaco van Wyk, his wife Mona, their three children and adult family friend Lee Mark left their home at Sonop to spend the day together for a family Christmas outing. They didn’t have an inkling that the Van Wyk parents would be dumped in the Brits SAPS cells at 6pm that evening, racially abused by crude-mouthed black police officers in front of their small children - and the father threatened with gang-rape in the holding cells.

Freedom Front plus councillor Elsa Lourens – who spent many hours trying to get the arrested Afrikaans couple released from the Brits police cells – has issued a detailed statement with visual evidence. After her intervention, the Brits police dropped the charges against the couple. However the party has initiated proceedings to lodge formal charges against the police- and traffic-officials involved in the incident. Ms Lourens condemned the racist abuse this defenceless family was targetted with by government officials. She released evidence in the form of pictures and video material taken of the incidents.

Know your Rights

The Freedom Front Plus says they have received a stream of complaints of racist-abuse and police-aggression against their electorate this season - and today posted a statement on their Facebook page, ‘Know your Rights” , in Afrikaans. VIEW THE VIDEO on the FREEDOM FRONT PLUS FACEBOOK PAGE


Ms Lourens said the Van Wyk couple were first pulled over in a police roadblock because their numberplate was not attacked to the front; however it had fallen off enroute and Mr Van Wyk had put it in clear view in the front window and told the officials at the first roadblock that he would have it re-attached upon their return home. In that first roadblock the police official also assured the family that it would not be a problem as long as the numberplate was clearly visible – which is was...  (picture below)


However when the Van Wyk family car was  stopped at a second roadblock, a black police officer started cursing Mr Van Wyk for a ‘white bastard’ and cursed the entire Afrikaner family with foul and very crude language while writing a ticket. Mrs Van Wyk, angered by these crude insults, tore up the ticket and they drove on. A few kilometres further down the road, the Van Wyk vehicle was suddenly surrounded by a large number of police vehicles and forced off the road. Mr Van Wyk was physically dragged from the car after he told the police he did not want to abandon his family in such an unsafe place and would rather follow them to the police station. Mr Van Wyk was then assaulted, and forced at gunpoint by a police officer to lie down,” wrote Ms Lourens.

“You have killed my daddy…’ shouted the weeping child

Ms Lourens continued: ‘One of the small Van Wyk children then jumped from the car, thinking that they had killed her father, and beat at one of the officers with a small plastic toy golfing stick, shouting that they ‘had shot her daddy’. Mrs Van Wyk was in hysterics and tried to get out of her seatbelt while the officers were assaulting her, trying to drag her out of the car. Mr Van Wyk then jumped to his wife’s defence, shouting for them to leave his wife alone. Family friend Lee Mark was meanwhile sitting inside the car, holding the little Van Wyk boy close to his chest to protect him. Another police officer then stuck a gun inside the car, and held it to Lee’s head, ordering Lee to ‘shut the children up’. An eye-witness at the scene who was taking photos and videos with her cellphone also was threatened that they would confiscate her phone: and they broke her keys when trying to rip them out of the ignition while Mr van Wyk was still being beaten repeatedly in the face before he and his wife were handcuffed and taken to the Brits police cells. He was there forced to undergo blood-tests which will only be available in July, the police claimed at the charge-office. Mr Lee then took back the family car to Brits with the three Van Wyk children, taking them to a family-member for safekeeping,” wrote Mrs Lourens.

She spent hours on Christmas Day, trying to get the Van Wyk couple released from the Brits police cells.  Initially the SAPS even denied that the Van Wyk’s were arrested and inside. It took her three hours before she could reach officials at the cells by phone.

Police officers told 14 black detainees in the Brits holding cell: ‘we have brought you a Paulina to rape…’

Lourens wrote: “While driving the cells, one official had pushed Van Wyk’s head outside the window while other officers were constantly beating him against the ear and his head while cursing him constantly. He then was taken to Cell 11 of the Brits police station where the black officers told the 15 black detainees inside that they had brought them a ‘Paulina’ for the weekend and that Van Wyk would be raped until he had ‘learned some manners’ . Van Wyk said he then was subjected to a constant stream of threats of rape and also called “Paulina’ by the detainees who demanded that he send out for cigarettes for them or he would be gang-raped. Meanwhile Mrs Van Wyk was also accosted in the female-section cells because the black women detained there tried to rob her jewellery. She hid her earrings underneath her tongue.

SAPS at Brits denied any knowledge of the arrested Van Wyk parents:

The Freedom Front councillor said that she tried to reach the police station at Brits from 8pm to 11pm by telephone that night and finally obtained some confirmaiton from officials at the cells after the complaints-officials had repeatedly denied that the Van Wyk couple were inside the police station and had denied all knowledge of the incident. However, the official at the holding cells told Ms Lourens at 11pm that the ‘Van Wyks had already been released and were in the complaints office’.  The Van Wyk couple denied this, saying they were held until well after 11pm and that throughout their arrest and incarceration, they were not informed under what charges they were being held. The Brits police also vehemently denied they had carried out acts of brutality and had shouted racist abuse at the couple. Early the next day, the councillor went to the Brits magistrate’s court where Mrs Van Wyk had been ordered to appear purportedly to face charges of ‘interfering in an arrest’ and ‘malicious damage to property". While she waited in court, Mrs Lourens obtained the video material and photographs from an eye-witnesses there -- and went to the Brits police station commander with it.

“A person in civilian clothing at the Brits police station then tried to convince me that the Van Wyks were  ‘distorting the case’ and that there had been ‘no police  brutality,’ she said. “However, when I informed him of the visual evidence he fell silent,’ she said. “I informed him that it even looked from the videos as of an article was taken from the vehicle and placed inside the pocket of an official. I also told him that when Mrs Van Wyk was plucked from the car, her cellphone had fallen out of her pocket, and that an official, dressed in black civilian clothing, then put it in his own pocket. Mrs Van Wyk then demanded her cellphone back and fought with this man who then returned it”. The official then left. Within ten minutes the Van Wyk couple phoned Ms Lourens – informing her that the case against them was dropped. The Freedom Front Plus councillor said however they are not letting this incident rest - they have in turn already initiated proceedings against the traffic officials and the police officers. “What is so worrying is that whenever there is a real emergency, the police claims that they have no vehicles available or officers to respond to the scene. However it was clear that there was no shortage of officials nor vehicles. And the racist comments coupled with the brutal behaviour of the police is not in line with the official “Batho-pele’ policies of the SAPS, which claims that they ‘put people first’. Clearly these  Batho Pele principles posted above the door of this police station, hold no meaning for those officials’.  She called on the community to inform them of any police violence and racist actions by officials.

Land Redistributed - To Chinese

h/t A.Stuijt.

""Eastern Cape's abundant agricultural land has seen China survey the province for farming business opportunities to supplement its scarce land resources," spokeswoman Ikhona Mvaphantsi said in a statement.

The Yebo Africa Trading Hall (ATH) in Shangai, China, had entered into an agreement with the Alfred Nzo district municipality to use land in the area for pomelo citrus fruit cultivation."

Hang on, weren't we against the idea of selling land to foreigners??

The Apartheid Dialectic.

There was a debate concerning Apartheid on this blog a few months ago often going along a general pro / con dialectic but I would submit that there is another perspective because that approach misses the larger picture of investigating why Apartheid was promoted & sold as a "solution" during the 1930s onwards in the first place because those that pushed it as a solution were basically ensnared into a confidence trick [ as the Apartheid example as set by the British Colonial power all over the world in fact was then starting to unravel ] because the long term viability of such laws were doomed due to changing trends & especially shifting demographics within the greater State. Consequently the loud proclamations of local governments asserting control over & expanding the existing Apartheid only led to the vilification of the macro White population in general.

Such an over ambitious & teleocratic agenda had great difficulty in obtaining its stated goal growing ever more illusive as time went on but only served as convenient fodder against the general White population as much of the world was conditioned to blame them for the system in place - but what role did the average White person play in the adoption of the system? There are those who are quick to lay blame on White people in general while overlooking just how the system was imposed in the first place. Most average folks within a given population often do not follow let alone participate in government & politics therefore to lay blame on an entire population group for government policies can be displaced.

Part of the erroneous Apartheid dialectic asserts that local White peoples imposed Apartheid laws onto the region when in reality there was never any grass root movement among the White population to adopt such laws & the adoption & imposition of the Apartheid laws was done in a top down manner. Those laws were initially implemented by the British Colonial regimes in the Cape & Natal during the late 19th cent modeled on the policies employed on the mines of Johannesburg. The Apartheid laws were never subjected to a referendum or plebiscite as they were formulated by bureaucrats & politicians. While White people were recruited to fill the role of a surrogate Colonial power within the government of the new macro State - it would be a considerable stretch to blame White people in general for its various policies as governments are notorious for following their own agendas / for being autocratic & for disregarding populist concerns among the general population.

Since Apartheid was never put before the White population in a referendum or plebiscite - it is not fair nor accurate to presume that most White people supported those measures. It is not as though the local White population clamoured for Apartheid laws on some sort of grass roots level or started political movements with the express purpose of implementing Apartheid because the old Apartheid laws were in fact instituted from the top down by various REGIMES without consulting the electorate in any sort of a vote. The only sort of vote which was interpreted as a public endorsement of Apartheid was the 1948 election of Daniel Francois Malan & his Reunited National Party but few bother to scrutinize the matter to discover some telling facts.

First of all the National Party victory at the polls during that election was illusory as they did not win the popular vote: only just barely enough seats to form a government. This is known to happen from time to time in Parliamentary based democracies. Therefore construing that election as a mass endorsement for Apartheid [ as many political pundits do ] would be intellectually dishonest. Next: the governing United Party was in fact PERPLEXED by the National Party's election campaign [ 1 ] & its proposed "emergency measures" aimed at strengthening & reforming Apartheid as the UP saw the NP position as nothing more than a dressed up version of their own policy & believed that the existing Apartheid laws on the statute books were sufficient. The National Party had to later co-opt the Afrikaner Party in the early 1950s [ of which its leader N C Havenga was Malan's preferred successor when Malan announced his retirement but the post ultimately went to Hans Strijdom ] just to increase the National Party's base of support to go into further polls. Then: when the next election cycle came up for 1953 the National Party made sure that the White population of South West Africa could vote in South African elections so that they could increase their representation in Parliament. Not until the 1958 election did the National Party receive a majority of the White electorate: [ 2 ] after most of the Grand Apartheid laws were already passed. Furthermore it should be pointed out that Afrikaner Nationalists simply extended & stregthened previous segregatonist laws that were inheritied from & passed by the earlier Brtitish colonial regimes prior. They did not invent anything new - only made it more organized & later granted independence & self government to various mini States. What had come to be known as Apartheid was in fact in practice since the begining of the South African macro State [ & indeed if it were not then the White surrogate Colonial regime could never have been brought to power in the first place via the universal franchise adopted as the means of electoral law as per the governance of South Africa ] & was IMPOSED onto the region via political decisions from the top & not from popular mass organization. The main purpose of Apartheid [ as it was enforced ] was to secure the State from the British & the intial use of the term Apartheid was used in relation to the separation of Afrikaans speakers from English speakers. The author P Eric Louw notes [ 3 ] that the National Party's version of Apartheid got started as a means to prevent Anglo domination.

This new expansion & reorganization of Apartheid was driven by the then secretive Afrikaner Broederbond which was using the Apartheid issue to bolster their influence & power. The membership of the Afrikaner Broederbond was small in numbers but wielded a lot of influence & power as virtually every single National Party cabinet member was a member of this elite semi-secret group which formulated the Grand Apartheid laws WITHOUT large scale or mass public consultation.

Prime Minister J B M Hertzog who started the original National Party in 1914 stated in November 1935 that: "there was no doubt that the secret Broederbond was nothing more than the National Party operating secretly underground, and the National Party is nothing more than the secret Afrikaner Broederbond operating in public". [ 4 ] Therefore this public admission demonstrates that the mass public were by & large kept in the dark & can not honestly be held accountable en mass for a system devised in secret [ initially ] by the political establishment.

The only reason why the old Apartheid laws appeared to have any support [ of which was never much more than 30 % solid hard core support of the electorate coupled with a slight "swing vote" section of which swung against Apartheid by the late P W Botha regime ] was because after the regimes dangled Apartheid in front of the White electorate as a means to safeguard their security & what little representation they had [ remember politics is the art of pretending to represent the people while really just implementing a semi-secret agenda aimed at securing the interests of the elite ] within the dispensation - they effectively frightened the White electorate into supporting the Apartheid doctrine as the only method to prevent what they cynically called the Black Threat. Cynical because they exploited those fears among the White electorate to great political benefit which was evident in how the National Party was able to hold onto power for over four decades. Though the opposition political parties' lack of submitting a viable alternative also played a large role in National Party dominance. Other options to Apartheid were purposely sidelined because of the establishment's desire to maintain their dominance of the macro State as created by the British Imperialists with an act of legislation passed in the British Parliament in 1909. The various Apartheid laws were just the various regimes' way of attempting to deal with the monstrous macro State that the South Africa Act created without losing control of the said macro State via its institutions & government. Wherein the Boers [among others] were denied their right to self determination in a total betrayal of Article 7 of the Vereeniging Accord not to mention the Sand River Convention & the Orange River Convention.

The Separate Development phase of Apartheid was often viewed as an expression of ultra right wing or conservative politics yet its basic premise of decolonization [ which was limited & never quite got off the ground as they never devised a viable method of reversing the macro State structure ] & of granting ethnic based self determination [ limited once again of course ] could hardly be considered as such & in fact this policy had opponents on the ultra conservative Right. The Separate Development stage of Apartheid as instituted by the National Party from the 1950s onwards was viewed as too liberal by ultra conservative figures such as Albert Hertzog [ who later founded the HNP ] as he was against the granting of Bantu homeland independence as he feared those independent states would become infiltrated by communism. [ 5 ] Though ironically the initial Apartheid policies which became institutionalized in law was a direct result of the high finance Capitalist [ which is not the free market ] influence in the region as a result of the labour policies employed on the gold mines near Johannesburg stemming from the racial segregation policies enforced on the mines.

Furthermore liberal icons such as Alfred Hoernlé was advocating for a system of partition in order "to protect the Black population from White economic exploitation". [ 6 ] Therefore it was one dimensional to view programs aimed at obtaining ethnic partition as "racist" when the very aim of those policies is to prevent racism from being possible by developing a dispensation whereby the various ethnic groups are no longer under the suzerainty of a racially or ethnically exploitative or dominant system. Which is not to say that the manner in which the past attempts within the old dispensation were enacted was desirable nor even practical as it was lopsided & the surrogate Colonial regime was attempting to maintain control over the major portion of the macro State & allocate it for the general White population - but such an aim of authentic ethnic / national group emancipation from macro State & surrogate Colonial regime suzerainty should not be a disparaged goal because the desire of authentic national group independence is a natural outcome of politically mature groups who want to get out from under oppression or ethnic marginalization & the dictates of a centralized system of government.

Conclusion. I will conclude on an interesting note: the Country Studies series available at the United States Library of Congress notes that prior to the arrival of the British & particularly before the era of the Anglo-Boer War - there was a balance of power in the region [ 7 ] thus if that politically stable situation could have prevailed & have been left alone: there never would have been the implementation of the later Apartheid laws on such a grand scale because this balance of power would not have been disturbed & there would not have existed the macro State which was the centralized enforcement mechanism of the Apartheid laws of the past & present.

Post Script. Which is not to say that State devised programs attempting to manage growing racial demographic complexities [ exacerbated incredibly by the British mines owners ] would not have arisen but it is clear that it would not have been on the scale of what later unfolded due to the nature macro State centralization.

2010 per meus oculus (through my eyes)

And the picture?

Because I think it is funny….

I know that the posts on this blog has dried up to a trickle of what it previously were, and that made me think that I should at least make an effort to wish all our readers a festive Christmas and new year.

So without further ado: A Happy, Merry, and Blessed Christmas to all, and May the New Year be what everybody wish for.

I am taking off for the rest of the year and will only start to be productive again early next year. I am going to spend this time with my family, fixing the little things around the house that needed fixing, and generally just try to recharge my batteries.

This then is the ideal moment to reflect on the last 12 months.

So many things has happened for and in South Africa, that it will be impossible to recap all, so I thought I will reread all my posts for the last 12 months, to try and figure out what has grabbed my attention.

I am listing the links to my postings below. I am actually amazed with myself. For somebody that is really busy with his work, I actually posted a lot. 39 posts!

What pissed me off the most?

The black on white racism, with the associated murder, torture, and mayhem. And to add to that, people like the Braaihoender that for some or other reason feels that it does not exist, or is OK because of the history of South Africa.

I truly believe that anybody that does not acknowledge the truth about the South African genocide of white people is as responsible for the deaths of these people, as the murderers themselves.

It is inexcusable.

The second thing that pissed me off?

I have read comments in other blogs where this blog is mentioned, and we as contributors on this blog is singled out as Nazi’s, Klux Klux khan, racists, idiots, fascists, etc.

I, personally takes exception to this, because, believe me, I do not see myself as any of these.

The third thing that pissed me off?

Amazing that the ANC is only 3rd on my list? I can’t believe it myself, but believe me they, the ANC have nothing to be proud of. If I look and think back on all the reports of non service delivery, poor governance, dishonesty, and in general to poor government, then I can only despair.

And I think I am going to stop here.
