AmaBhulu the Blog

Featured

AmaBhulu – The Birth and Death of the Second America was first published in November 2013 as an e-book, and is now also available in a 630 page B&W printed softcover edition. This work is a comprehensive study of the complete history of South Africa, but with the unique differentiation that it tracks a few real bloodlines through that entire history. AmaBhulu describes how real individuals of European and North American descent experienced that epic history on the ground. The reader is placed among these real people. The author is the first to point out that his family is in this respect “dreadfully typical” and completely representative. AmaBhulu is therefore not a family history, but a History of a Nation by way of a few example bloodlines who happened to have been at the key formative events in that history.

These bloodlines systematically converge and by the 1950s they lead to the author and his wife, proving the author’s natural DNA-based authority in writing on the subject. AmaBhulu thereby also differs from the library of books by British newspapermen talking either about or to Afrikaners who are then treated as “subjects”. In AmaBhulu the world may hear an ordinary Afrikaner—not a reporter beholden to his editor, politician beholden to his party, or government-paid political history professor beholden to his pay cheque—talking about his own people based on actual experience, backed by solid evidence. The author is beholden to no one and no thing; only to his conscience, to his ethics, and to his respect for evidence.

AmaBhulu provides more than 1280 notes in evidence and a massive 270 bibliographic entries in support of any points it makes. The evidence is often from 17th-19th century texts, communications, or diaries. In more recent cases, the evidence is provided from British Hansard records and recently cleared US State Department documents. The author even provides recent documented supporting evidence from the enemy he was opposing.

Join the author in the epic and painful story of the Afrikaner nation as it evolves at the southern tip of Africa to build the country that became to Africa what America was to the world in the 20th century. In one sense, it is the story of what would have happened to the United States if it had not gained independence in the 18th century.

In 1797 the British Royal Navy was concerned that South Africa would become a “Second America” and take India from them. AmaBhulu holds stern warning for the First America if it wishes to avoid the present sad fate of the Second America.

Walking to President Trump

Tags

, ,

Jason Bartlett is a proper young Christian South African with a big goal. He is walking from Austin, Texas, the capital of the Lone Star State, to Washington DC. He is doing this in the hope that President Trump will grant him an audience. At between 1,500 and 1,600 miles, that is pretty much halfway across the United States.

I should mention that he comes from a part of South Africa that looks so much like Western and Southwestern Texas that it makes one’s heart ache. He would know all about doing steak on mesquite and on its more flavorful South African equivalent, sweet thorn. And yes, the Germans imported mesquite into Namibia and it spread into the West of South Africa.

Like myself, Jason is desperately concerned for his people in South Africa, disgusted at what the ANC has turned his country into, and dismayed at the fact that folks in South Africa are just simply sitting there, apparently paralyzed with fear.

No Leadership

The awful truth is that there is at present no leader of civilized men in South Africa. Those who do have the ability will not lead. Those who would lead have no ability. There certainly is no one worth a mention in parliament; they are part of the problem, not part of the solution. So far, most determination and leadership has been shown by musicians, which I wrote about before. It would seem from afar that fear is paralyzing people.

The Death of Civilization

Non-South Africans need to understand that South Africa is run by groups who, in the past, burnt to death those who disagreed with them. It has become a country where one gets sentenced to three years in jail for using the equivalent of the N-word. It is a country where politicians now have their opponents murdered. It is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ and Bernie Sanders’ dream: the supposed Rainbow Nation. Dare I point out that the rainbow hath no color white?

The present mess was predictable, as will be clear from my book on the subject, AmaBhulu. Political party leaders like Julius Malema now dance on stage singing “Kill the farmers”…. (and you do not need to translate anything to see what he is doing in that clip). You are witnessing the death of civilization. To Americans I say, “They are destroying your closest cousins on Earth”.

Some still Care

The lack of action in South Africa puts a massive burden on the few outside the country who care, and Jason, it would seem, is one of them. I trust he will reach DC and I trust President Trump will exhibit the depth of character to hear the young man or at least receive his message.

Helping Jason

My appeal to Christian Americans is to help and support the young man. If folks operating Conservative Talk Radio could give him air time it would be wonderful. If churches along the way could take note, it would help so much.

Of course, President Trump could always actually DO WHAT HE PROMISED on 22 August 2018, which is to investigate the phenomenon of Farm Murders and the Government Theft of White-owned property in South Africa, as promoted by SA president Cyril Ramaphosa. The US Left went hysterical at the time of the President’s tweet, as did the ANC government of South Africa. That should tell decent Americans absolutely everything they need to know. It was a 100% sure sign that the President had hit the right button.

Mooi Loop (Go thee well), Jason.

Talking to America

—Today, I was one of two guests of Dan Happel and his producer, Randy “Thumper” Wilson, on Dan’s show, Connecting the Dots. Our other guest, Hendrik, joined us from South Africa via Zoom. The show was pre-recorded yesterday and livestreamed today. The matter of South Africa and some of its bearing on the United States was discussed. The two hour show is now available in full in recorded video form and may be seen HERE.

I shared some of the graphics from my series Who stole the Land and from my book AmaBhulu, along with various more recent video clips.

Dan, Randy and I have all met personally and I can testify that the two American gentleman are of the character of those who fought and won WWII. Such men still do exist today in the United States, despite what TV is telling you. Just as that media is lying to Americans about South Africans,  that media is lying to South Africans about Americans. And these men are listening and taking note of what is happening in South Africa, despite the best efforts of CNN and the like trying to tell them South Africa is a heavenly rainbow nation of great delight and bliss.

ERRATA: Yes, I know, I said “Johannesburg” when I very obviously should have said “Durban” for the bomb map. I also said “1983” when I should have said “1993″ for the St James Church Massacre on 25 July 1993 in Cape Town. What can I say? It is tough keeping one’s dates, numbers, names, etc together under pressure “on the fly”.

The Long March to Hell

Waiting for Mao

—A rational person is not always sure whether to laugh in amusement, cry in dismay, or scream in horror when dealing with events in South Africa. After a while, one just becomes numb. No outrage is ever too great in that tortured country. They keep trying to up the ante in that domain. After all, it is the place where an elected representative wanted a national research laboratory to find out what is the cause of the lightning. One is not even sure where to begin to comment on that.

Somehow, it was not the litany of idiocies besetting the place that drew my attention, nor the business failures of the national air carrier or electricity utility, the rampant corruption of the government, the extreme excesses of those in power, or the overall general failure of the place as a country under the sway of an ANC “government”, listed as Terrorist Organization by the Reagan Administration. Instead, it was the trinket farm called the Long March to Freedom that I could not dispel from my mind. They’re supersized trinkets, but trinkets nonetheless, and I see no freedom at the end of the so-called “march”.

One wonders why the government thought it intelligent to spread a collection of contrived figures from “Black Liberation History” at Sterkfontein, the world famous site west of Pretoria that keeps producing prehistoric hominid bones. Then again, I always thought of Fidel Castro as an “early hominid”. Yes, of course he is there in the “parade” of characters (see above); how else? He’s walking right in front  behind Mandela, who is just out of view in this temporary display in Cape Town. I’m just waiting for Chairman Mao.  If their criterion is—as it appears to be—individuals who orchestrated the killing of white people, then we should rationally expect to see Stalin and Hitler there. Err…that is, unless the mass murderers have to be black to qualify.

Harry the Beachcomber

Before anyone on the Left mouths off ignorantly about the above, they should note that the earliest character represented is my own Ancestral Khoi uncle, Autshumao (left), who has somehow grown an extra “t” before the “o” on the trinket farm. He was better known as Herry die Strandloper (Harry the Beachcomber). He was the uncle of my direct ancestor Krotoa, who became interpreter for Commander Jan van Riebeeck. His small Goringhaikona clan had no cattle and they lived from what they could gather off the rocks, hence their name, Beachcombers. They neither grew anything, nor fished anything. They just hung around.

So, let’s be honest here: My ancestral uncle was NOT an upstanding example of the Khoi people of the day. There were several more impressive representatives of the Khoi around. He was just the first to meet European visitors. Mostly, he was just a nuisance, not only to the Dutch but also to his fellow Khoi. I suspect he is there because he killed a young Dutch cattleherd.

Imagine my surprise upon reading on the website of the trinket farm that the Goringhaikona were now somehow elevated to having been “a KhoiKhoi people of the Table Bay region who had abandoned grazing in favour of trade.”

Wow! That is in the same spirit as saying the Apache under Geronimo were in the lead metal trade in the American Southwest. If I were to report the truth on what his people did to get tobacco and oven soot from the sailors, there would be a lot of red faces around and I’d be called Politically Incorrect and insensitive. Heaven forbid! Then again, I’m talking about my own ancestral uncle and others without those particular credentials should rather stay silent.

I should also point out that Johann Moolman, who created the particular figure, could not have done extensive homework on the Khoi people, otherwise he would have realized that the hair is completely too dense for the person to be Khoi. The mustache is another extremely unlikely oddity. It is also not clear whether the sculptor added the dried sheep entrails that the Khoi typically wore as adornment.

Shaka

Naturally, they have Shaka (left), bloodthirsty founder-King of the amaZulu. Rather than expound on him, I refer the reader to my earlier exposé on the Mfecane, Twenty years of Hell on Earth, which is laid directly at his door. Read it and shudder to the core of your soul. He, as a single individual, will destroy your faith in Mankind. I have a lot of respect for the amaZulu people, one of the most cohesive, organized, and honorable nations on earth, famous for their warrior culture; but their founder was an utter monster.

Why he is here is a little unclear. To my knowledge he was not responsible for the killing of any White folks. So what “freedom” exactly did he create? The amaHlubi and amaNgwane may have something to say about that.

And then there is Mzilikazi

He is treated in the same article about the Mfecane. It is a little difficult to understand what he is doing in the parade at all. Oh wait, he killed a few White people; that makes him “hero” to these creatures. The fact that he wiped out many thousands of Black people with his bloodthirsty massacres, burning them alive, seems not to matter. He turned entire nations into cannibals. He took his people to Zimbabwe in the end.

I’m really struggling to understand in what conceivable way he is a hero in the supposed “March to Freedom”. I also do not know why sculptor Mike Mawdsley has him wearing a bandolier. His people never used guns in South Africa; they used Zulu style spears. He might just as well be shown  flying a A-10  Warthog.

What on earth are the organizers thinking? Between Shaka and Mzilikazi, they denuded Central South Africa of people and completely wiped out several nations. They chased the Ba’Tswana into today’s Botswana, the Ba’Sotho into the Drakensberg Mountains and the Ba’Pedi to the Soutpansberg Mountains. Then again, the truth has never stopped people like this. Why should it? The international media indulges them on every outrage, just as they indulge every lie about President Donald Trump and protect the perpetrators of the lie.

Who’s missing?

I wonder if they are going to show Chief Matiwane, who was killed by Dingane, Shaka’s despotic half-brother who personally shipped Shaka to the Hereafter. If they don’t, Matiwane’s amaNgwane people in the interior of Natal may get a little restless. After all, he did fight the British in 1828 in one skirmish. And then there is Mpangazitha of the amaHlubi, who was killed in battle by Matiwane at the southwestern end of Lesotho. And then there is Sebetwane, David Livingstone’s friend and a Sotho chief who was actually a slave trader, as Livingstone eventually discovered. YES, you heard that right.  Oh wait, Mpangazitha did not kill any whites; how silly can I be. So he likely does not qualify. Sebetwane at least fought the half-Khoi people at Dithakong near Kuruman. So, he may very well make the list, even though he ended up in Zambia with his people, who were renamed the Makalolo.

And… where on earth is King Ngqika of the amaRharhabe? His sons Sandile and Maqoma are there. Has he been left out because he and the white people fought together as allies against the other amaXhosa in the first two frontier wars? See(?)… when people do stuff like this, one has to ask pointed questions.

The website DOES say that they have only 100 of 400 figures completed. So let us wait and see. This could get more interesting as they twist themselves into ever more of a propaganda pretzel.

The Long March to Hell

Is the message clear yet, or do I need to carry on? After all, they do say the “march to freedom” took “350 years”, obviously referring to the arrival of white people in 1652. So it is brazenly anti-white, containing only those white individuals who consigned their own to hell and sped them on their way there. That would include various white Communists, such as Joe Slovo, Ruth First and Bram Fischer. Folks have those creatures in the United States and Europe as well. You know them; … of course you do. If you don’t, then check your universities and media. You’ll find them in the woodwork.

For a REAL March to Freedom, see THIS. The trinket farm is in fact a monument to the Long March to Hell, a stationary bronze account of how one turns an advanced country with one of the major economies of the world, an Ally in WWI, WW2 and Korea, into an African Basket Case and International Ground Zero for Farm Murders in just 25 years. After all, it is the place to study to understand How The West Ends.

Commander-in-Chief: Trump vs. Obama

Tags

, , ,

Stones & Dust: All that is left of the hideout of al-Baghdadi near Barisha. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the depraved  leader of ISIS, was killed in an American military operation on 26-27 October 2019 outside Barisha, close to the Turkish border, and a considerable distance from any area previously occupied by ISIS. He was chased to his death by the Belgian Malinois, Conan. It is fitting that the last thing this murderous extremist saw or heard was a dog coming for him, considering that contact with dogs is proscribed as “impure” in his Faith.

Having previously written an article in which I presented the Situation Room picture of (former) President Obama and his people during the Raid on Bin Laden on 2 May 2011, I felt it would only be appropriate to do the same for the above raid. However, upon putting the two pictures next to each other, the profound differences struck me immediately. It seemed to me they were worth sharing.

The Raid on Bin Laden : Operation Neptune Spear

First, we consider the Raid on Bin Laden outside Abbottabad in Pakistan, the town founded by and named for James Abbott. He was a British army Officer and later Colonial Administrator in what was then British “India”. (Please do read up about him; a very interesting eccentric). The image below shows the Situation Room on the night of the raid.

The Raid on al-Baghdadi: Operation Kayla Mueller

This raid was named for the young American woman volunteer who was murdered by  al-Baghdadi’s ISIS after being abducted while helping Doctors without Borders. That already tells one something. For example, I have no idea what Neptune’s spear has to do with Bin Laden. I know exactly what Kayla Mueller has to do with al-Baghdadi.

Comparing the pictures

A. The Bin Laden Raid

In the 2011 picture, there are at least seventeen people huddled in this room, one being the photographer, and three with just portions of clothes or tops of heads showing. We can list the identifiable people follows: On the far left is Joe Biden, then Vice-President of the United States, and the man who advised that the mission should NOT be undertaken because it could end like Jimmy Carter’s abortive mission in the desert of Iran on 24 April 1980. I lived in New York at the time and I well remember my best friend in life, an American, in tears. Israel, South Africa and Germany had all successfully undertaken similarly logistically complex raids in the recent past, and the most powerful nation on Earth had failed, forced to leave its dead in the desert next to the burnt out hulks of its aircraft.

The man in the sweater, hunkered down in a low chair in the left corner was then leader of the most powerful nation in the world; the man who had approved the mission to go ahead after much agonizing, President Barack Obama. He was no doubt, in line with his stated doctrine, “Leading from Behind”.

The man apparently in command in the room is in the chair at the head of the table, Brigadier General Marshall B. “Brad” Webb, USAF, Assistant Commanding General, Joint Special Operations Command. As befits a man with his responsibilities, he is focused on his workstation and is NOT—repeat NOT—checking his Facebook account. To his left and the viewer’s right sits Denis McDonough, Deputy National Security Advisor. So, the deputy is at the table, and not the actual National Security Advisor to the President, who is Tom Donilon, in blue shirt, standing behind the aforesaid Brig. General Webb.

Next to McDonough sits Hillary Clinton, then Secretary of State, clearly so stressed out that she is pulling a fold into the skin of her face. And she’s the one who had commercials about the nation wanting HER to take the much dreaded call on the red Doomsday Phone? The White House had to pixelize the Classified picture in front of her. Somehow she just always seems to have security issues.

Nearest the camera is Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, a man who has always commanded respect from all sides of the US political spectrum. Standing to the right of Donilon is Admiral Mike Mullen, USN, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the most senior professional military man in the room. Standing on Donilon’s left is Bill Daley, White House Chief of Staff. Behind Daley is Tony Blinken, National Security Advisor to the Vice President, trying to look over Daley’s shoulder. The lady at the back, stretching to see past Blinken’s elbow, set off a veritable firestorm of investigations back in 2011, because she was unidentified at the time. It eventually turned out that she is Audrey Tomason, Director for Counter-Terrorism. Unlike most people in that room, and specifically the two men in front of her or Hillary, she actually had at least a nominal reason to be there.

The last two men on the far right in the 2011 picture are John Brennan, Obama’s appointed Homeland Security Advisor (later Obama’s CIA Chief) and James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence. Unlike with Brennan, his role requires approval by the Senate. Both these men are today regarded with extreme suspicion as being part of the “Deep State” cabal that formulated the plot to remove President Trump from Office in what is in effect an attempted coup by the unelected security structure of the Country.

To my mind, the only people who should have been in that room were Obama, Biden, the general, the admiral, Secretary Gates, Donilon, and perhaps Audrey Tomason, though my jury is out on that last addition.

A. The al-Baghdadi Raid

The picture contains evidence of nine people, eight fewer than the Obama picture. Besides the photographer, there appear to be two more arrangements of writing materials, as though individuals are sitting at those positions at the table, but out of view. As for the individuals visible, none are standing, none are stretching to see past someone’s elbow or over anyone’s shoulder. There seems to be no superfluous humans present among them. They are, from left to right, National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien; Vice President Mike Pence; President Trump, clearly in command at the head of the table; Defense Secretary Mark Esper; Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley; and Brig. Gen. Marcus Evans, Deputy Director for Special Operations on the Joint Staff, the man commanding the mission.

Now look in the faces of these men, and compare what you see with the faces of the people in the 2011 raid. I have one simple observation: I see six men with grim determination written in their faces in 2019. If you were a determined enemy of the United States, which of the two pictures would make you think twice before crossing swords with the USA?

Sometimes international politics, like real life, is as simple as this question, and I do not think Obama ever understood any of this. Certainly, Hillary did not. Both of them were visibly less stressed about the loss of the brave men at Benghazi. Oh… and by the way… she did NOT “pick up the red phone” when the men in that embassy desperately called for help. But she had the mental wherewithal to lie about it afterwards and ascribed the Benghazi attack to a silly video.

Is it not amazing what a picture can tell one?

A Good Man Speaks Out

Tags

, , ,

— Alex Newman is an American freelance journalist who is best known for his articles in the New American. He is one of the dismally few Americans who have a working grasp of the realities of South Africa. He has warned for decades about the ANC. Like myself, he sees in the events in South Africa a dire warning for the United States and the entire West. The kind of forces that brought about the collapse of Western Civilization in South Africa are at work in North America and Europe. I have written quite a bit about that, and it is the thesis of my book AmaBhulu.

Newman has published in the past week a new extended video on the subject of South Africa that I believe the whole world needs to see. THIS LINK will take the reader to the video. It addresses essentially the same issue. He quite correctly refers to the Afrikaner as the American’s Closest Cousin on Earth. The parallels are quite uncanny.

As a proven friend of South Africa and a man I have dealt with quite bit, he should be taken seriously. We’ve done joint interviews and have spoken at the same conferences. He is a man to reckon with and to count on. It should be mentioned that it is Alex who contacted me, seeking help for refugee South Africans. His heart is solidly in the right place.

Of course he and I differ on some points, particularly as regards US politics and the characters who populate it, but that is a healthy difference of views between mature people — something that is no longer possible in South Africa.

I think we all know a good man when we meet him, and Alex is every inch that man.

Lana Marks Finally Approved as US ambassador to SA

Tags

, , ,

— Lana Marks, whose nomination I addressed on 21 November 2018, around ten months ago, was finally approved as the United States Ambassador to South Africa yesterday, 26 September 2019. I have no idea why this should have taken so long. Perhaps the House of Representatives is too busy trying to assail the US president, and the Senate too busy defending, to actually do any real work. Perhaps Americans should think on these things. If the US Democrats had spent as much time on the USSR as it has spent on attacking President Trump over the past three years, that Communist Empire may well have fallen in the 1970s, so to speak.

This means we now have (1) a USA Ambassador in Pretoria, and (2) a  National Security Advisor in Washington who can both speak Afrikaans. Marks can speak isiXhosa, so she knows darn well that “Bulala amaBhulu” means “Kill the Whites”. She cannot pretend not to. Both have actual experience of South Africa, which is more than can be said for any of their predecessors.

Most of the world thinks that all is perfect in South Africa, because the anguish of non-Black folks is being buried, at least in part by themselves. I know it is not in the character of the folks, but the time has come to “Scream your bloody heads off“. It is time to be in the street in front of the US Embassy in Pretoria with placards and much shouting and screaming. Unfortunately, that is what gets US attention. Just talking sensibly will not work.

This is the moment in which FW de Klerk can do the one thing that might redeem him in the eyes of his own people. He could meet with both these individuals and tell them that the entire New South Africa experiment was a terrible disaster. He can ask for their help in fixing the disgusting mess he precipitated on the lives of those who put their faith in him back in 1990. That is the least he could do before he sheds this mortal coil. He could follow that up by handing his Nobel Prize back to Norwegian King Harald V in the presence of the World Media. If he does not act, he will go to his grave marinated in the undying hatred of his own people and his name will live in infamy. But, I’m not holding my breath.

Non-black South Africans desperately need a leader of character at this time.

South Africa and the New US National Security Advisor

Tags

, , ,

Robert O’Brien

— On September 18, 2019 President Trump named his new National Security Advisor. Non-Americans may find it interesting to know that this post does NOT require ratification by the US Senate. President Trump can choose whomsoever he pleases. He has chosen Robert O’Brien (above). He is the fourth person in three years to serve in that role under President Trump, being preceded by Gen. Michael Flynn, H.R. McMaster, and, most recently, John Bolton of the famous mustache and vividly hawkish convictions.

O’Brien, an attorney, has made a name for himself as a hostage negotiator, being appointed to the position of Special Presidential Envoy for Hostage Affairs by President Trump on May 10, 2018. He has written on US Foreign Policy. He is a man who believes that the world is a better place when America acts from a position of strength. This author would agree.

Fluent in Afrikaans?

His appointment is significant.  Raised a Catholic, O’Brien converted to the Mormon faith and spent time in South Africa in the 1980s. More particularly, he was there during some of the worst violence and saw what the ANC terrorist organization, now the government of South Africa, is capable of. He spent a year at Free State University as a Rotary Foundation Scholar and is reputedly fluent in Afrikaans. This is something for which the intellectually bankrupt Left in the United States will likely pillory him.

ANC Violence while he was in South Africa

On 7 November 1985, while in South Africa at the age of only about 20, he wrote an interesting article from Johannesburg for the Baptist Press, a news service of the Southern Baptist Convention. One assumes this was before his religious conversion. The title of his piece was “Apartheid Protest Breeds Intolerance in Reverse“. In this article, Black South African Baptists are interviewed. One of them describes how he had to watch helplessly as a black girl was burnt to death, the mob knocking her down every time she got up while they threatened to burn alive anyone who tried to help her. Ronald Reagan himself described some of that so-called “necklacing” horror (below), but America would simply not listen at the time. Today Reagan is revered by all as a departed president. It is amazing how the same people would not listen to him about South Africa.

Amanzimtoti

Six weeks later, on 23 December 1985, an operative of Umkhonto we Sizwe, the “military” wing of the ANC, planted a limpet mine in the Shopping Mall under the towering Sanlam Centre in Amazimtoti, Natal (below). White women and children were killed in the attack.  The terrorist killer, Andrew Zondo, later explained in court that he had done it because there were many white people there. One of those “many white people” was this present author’s own mother, who lived in an upstairs apartment in that building.

Having drawn blood, the ANC tried again a few weeks later. This time the mine was discovered before it went off. On this occasion my mother WAS indeed near the bomb and she describes how the Police practically carried her out of the building at high speed, her feet barely touching the ground here and there.

The Attitude of the ANC

I trust it is appropriate to point out to the thinking world—which I would like to believe still has some morality—that the ANC clique in power in that area has renamed the street past the building to Andrew Zondo Road, immortalizing the killer of the innocent. Imagine North Harvey Avenue, the street past the now-demolished Alfred P. Murrah building in Oklahoma City (below), being named after bomber Timothy McVeigh. This is exactly what the ANC is doing to white people in South Africa and the organization relishes it. And the ever-left-leaning World Media is silent.

Decent human beings note that the memorial (below) created at what used to be the location of the Alfred P. Murrah building is dedicated to the victims. In South Africa the street is dedicated to the killer. A secondary school has also been named after him. That should tell any person of sound morals exactly what the ANC government of South Africa actually is.

For those who did not know, Umkohonto we Sizwe was created by Nelson Mandela, and one can find in his “auto”-biography the details of how he fought to ensure it was indeed created. That “auto”-biography was actually ghostwritten by Richard Stengel, a later member of President Obama’s Administration. It is truly tiresome to hear thinking people turn Mandela into an “angel of peace.” They apparently have trouble reading, especially when their hero confesses his role in his own book.

There is always Hoping

I would assume, without knowing for a fact, that Mr. O’Brien was still in Johannesburg when these events took place in Amazimtoti and were front-page prime time news. One hopes and prays that some of this has left at least some impression on his memory and that he will not conveniently forget the truth of what he learnt  in South Africa. In fact, the truth has turned out to be amazingly fragile in recent times under the direction of the US Left. In fact, it has become difficult to locate at all.

Then again, there is always hoping.

Why the Extreme Violence in South Africa?

Tags

, , ,

— On 8 September 2019, I joined Erin Ryan and Bill Cundiff on their US internet radio channel, WeThePeopleRadio. The subject was the “Xenophobic Violence” of Black South Africans against foreign Black people.

I addressed the matter under the following headings, providing supporting audio clips in evidence of each point:

  • The Views of the so-called “Foreigners”
  • The Views of the Attackers
  • The Views of Julius “Ki(ll/s) the Whites” Malema
  • The Attitude of the National ANC-run Police
  • Where does this violence come from? (a): The 1980s
  • Where does this violence come from? (b): The Mfecane of 1816-1836

The reader can find the entire two hour show HERE. The actual content starts at minute 8:43. The audio clips played on the show are spread over some years. We hear Ghanaian business owners and mechanics complain that South African Black people “do not want to work“. We hear from a tearful and frightened young Burundian woman that she is forced to leave the country. We hear some of the “foreigners” explain how the country was better before the ANC took over in 1994. We hear the same from none other than Julius Malema. Of course Malema is also the one that said on another occasion that “we are all Makwerekwere (foreigners)“. He suffers from these bouts of message-inversion, but logic is not the strong point of Africa.

We hear the crass anti-immigrant and vividly anti-white stance of a Black ANC Deputy Police Minister. To this is added the Zulu Police Minister, Behki Cele, addressing a crowd of weapon wielding men from the hostels in Johannesburg. This leads to questions about the ethnic Zulu component of this violence.

We trace the violence back to the 1980s when the ANC was doing its absolute damnedest to destabilize the country. We hear an ANC comrade explain how men he knows were spared “necklacing” by Black mobs when the “hated White Police” arrived back in the 1980s. We rely on Winnie Mandela to blurt out at Munsieville in April 1986 how she and her colleagues would “liberate the country with their necklaces“, and then we leave it to US President Ronald Reagan to describe to American readers just exactly what a “necklacing” is. Earlier, we hear how black attackers describe “necklacing” in the past few years. When a British reporter asks them why they think it is OK to do this to a fellow human being, the justify it on the basis that they “are angry”.

Finally, we take the audience back to the late 1820s during the Mfecane (The Great Crushing), when Robert Moffat of the London Missionary Society visited renegade Zulu leader, Mzilikazi of the Khumalo clan of the Zulu. By then, Mzilikazi was located at the site of the present Hartebeestpoort Dam, just west of the present Pretoria. I leave it to the present reader to listen to the excerpt I read to the audience and then decide whether it is relevant or not. In the show I do not mention that Mzilikazi also executed a brave warrior in Moffat’s presence by having him thrown off the cliff overlooking the local river to the crocodiles waiting below. The river in question, of course, is named the Crocodile River; what else? One never gets away from history.

Henry Ford famously said “History is bunk”.
Of course, Henry Ford is now history.

On Radio Free SA with Karin & Schalk

— On 3 September 2019 I joined Karin Smith and her co-host Schalk van der Merwe (left) on the air. Schalk is based in South Africa. Karin runs a channel called Radio Free South Africa. Her invitation was precipitated by the current violence against foreign black people in South Africa. Some of that behavior may be traced back in history.

My focus was strongly on the Mfecane of 1816-1836, which I treated in my Blog series “Who stole the land?”

We also touched on the trend in the US toward denigrating anything done by or created by White people. I trace the latter to the 1780s, using a young French adventurer in South Africa as example.

The whole 2-hour show may be heard or downloaded HERE.  The actual show starts at minute 4.01 and I join at minute 14.48. The Webpage for the show is HERE. The controls for the radio session is at the top of the web page.

As any South African would know, the Trekkers of 1836-1840 fought Mzilikatse and Dingane, the successor to Shaka. So I obviously made a mistake in the heat of the moment during the show when I said they fought Mzilikatse and Shaka. Chapter 8 of my series “Who Stole the Land?” and my book AmaBhulu both make that abundantly clear.

Killing the White Devil

— On 27 August 2019 I joined Dan Happel on his US radio program titled “Connecting the Dots”. On this occasion Dan’s concern was the current trend in the United States toward demonizing all white people and toward denigrating the institutions they had created. This concern of his led him to consider what is happening to white people in South Africa. As Dan rightly puts it, “America is seeing the destruction of traditional American institutions and values by many of our elected public leaders who are promoting ideas and policies that are openly Marxist, just like South Africa.

So much of what has been happening in South Africa has direct bearing on the United States that it may justifiably be viewed as the proving ground for the future of the United States. He titled this episode “Killing the White Devil”.

The whole two hour interview may be heard HERE.
