AmaBhulu the Blog


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.


Should Americans be jailed for the N-word?



— If one follows the logic of Trevor Noah, White Americans should be jailed if they use the N-word. In a recent show of his, he lectured the audience on South Africa. Of course, this was  based on his supposed “authority” on the subject, given that his father was Swiss and his mother apparently a black Xhosa woman in South Africa. See that here.

The segment of his show is about a white lady in South Africa being sentenced to a three-year jail sentence for a rant at Black policemen during which she used the equally offensive K-word numerous times. The sentence was suspended for one year, leaving her to do two years in jail for her rant. Folks should understand that her car had just been broken into, and the Black South African Police are basically not trusted at all.

“Never punished”

However, the thing is this: at one point in his “explanation” he offers the audience these pearls of wisdom,”White South Africans have never been punished for Apartheid.” He then seeks to explain how this plays into her rant.

Let me make this quite clear to any American reader: By Mr. Noah’s logic, any white American using the N-word in a rant when he or she has been criminally wronged should be jailed for three years, with perhaps one year suspended.

Now having said that, by his logic, this must be done because White Americans have—if I have his line of thinking right—never been punished for Slavery.

I must be imagining things

But hold on a moment!

Is there not an edifice of Black Economic Empowerment legislation that actively, openly, and brazenly punishes white people, causing them to leave the country? Even Black leaders complain about it. Are we not seeing South African White farmers being murdered like flies and tortured to death (see below)? Is it not happening to a degree that caused the Australian government to move towards fast tracking them as regards visas for Australia? Did not the South african Parliament just vote to take away the property of white farmers without compensation? Then add to this the fact that some of the farm attackers appear to be equipped with cell-phone jammers which they got….errr…where exactly? Those are usually items used by government forces. For the technologically challenged, a cell phone jammer looks like THIS. Now look at the farm attack CCTV picture (below) in that link. It took place at Sannieshof, in the Western-Transvaal cattle and maize country.

Tell me that bit again about “no punishment” and particularly about “trusting the police”. Perhaps Mr. Noah is right and I’m just having a really bad dream. One of us is going to wake up at some point.

Asked nicely not to repeat it

All this raises the question, was the South African woman jailed because she was white? Mr. Noah refers to this, but only in that he mentions that Black South Africans have not adopted the K-word into rap songs as Black Americans have.

What Mr. Noah fails to mention to his audience, is that a senior Black South African Defence Force officer said over the same period on Facebook that white people’s eyes and tongues should be stabbed out. Ernst Roets, Deputy CEO of AfriForum, says the lady’s remarks were indeed racist and need to be condemned.

However, the inconsistency being applied in this country regarding minorities has reached the level of absurdity. The reality in South Africa is thus that a white person who insults a black person goes to prison, while a senior officer in the Defence Force who says that white people’s eyes and tongues must be stabbed out is simply asked nicely not to repeat it. In addition, an influential political leader talking about genocide is rewarded with an invitation to join the ruling party.

Just in case you think the officer’s suggestion has no basis or effect, you need to be calibrated on South Africa: Look HERE.

The trouble with the truth

The trouble with the truth is that it can’t find Mr. Noah. His first few sentences in that clip are bluntly wrong. Right now the president of South Africa is trying to take white people’s property away and the whole world has heard it. Where has Mr. Noah been the last month?

His comment about “clean slate” is an insult to the intelligence of a three-year-old. At this point, the government has already blamed white people for everything they themselves have screwed up and they complain that the problems of South Africa started when White people arrived. Members of parliament run around openly threatening white people with slaughter.

The reality of South Africa is one click and two words away on your keyboard. You merely need to WANT to find it.

A Bloody Reality, not Comedy

So, I’ll help: Go to Google Images; NOT Google….. I said Google Images.(click on that link). Put in there “farm attacks” and hit “Enter”.

I do not want to post those pictures here. But that is what folks are dealing with and the Police are not helping them. So, spare a thought for the racist ranting lady. Maybe now you understand. She was really wrong to do that….. but two years in jail, while the military officer is rapped over the knuckles?

Until you look at those pictures, people like Mr. Noah will have you believe that the “government is moving forward” and all the folks in the pictures are still living the kind of Nirvana he sketches in that segment of his. I prefer to trust the reader and his or her ability to use a keyboard.

This is not a late night show; this is not comedy; this is reality

…. it is bloody reality…. very bloody indeed.

If you want the real background on what is happening in South Africa, you can always get AmaBhulu.

If, on the other hand, you want comedy, you can always listen to Trevor Noah, but preferably not to his warped ideas about South Africa. These things may be a joke in America, it is not in South Africa.

Does he make Holocaust jokes, by any chance?

Why the United States?


, , ,

—I have been asked why I am so intently focused on the United States and Americans in my efforts at seeking a solution in South Africa. The answer is simple:

1. The United States is the only country in the world of 2018 that can and might cause the ANC government of South Africa enough political and economic pain to change its direction and to stop its low-level genocide campaign against people based on skin color.

OK, so they helped put the ANC in power, but they might well take exception at what the ANC is now. In 1994 they could perhaps have pleaded ignorance about the ANC. Now they cannot, because the cat is out of the bag about Mandela. He WAS a member of the Communist central committee in South Africa. The Communist Party of SA said so the day he died.

2. Right now, the United States has a president in Mr. Donald Trump with the guts to do the right thing and his fractious Congress is not in control of foreign policy; he is.

OK, so that Congress will scream blue murder if he tries to save the lives of white people in South Africa and the left will go shopping for a judge to stop his efforts. Either way, it will highlight the problem in South Africa. If the events in SA could get the spotlight that the “DACA kids” are getting in the USA, it would help tremendously.

3. I also believe that, given our joint bloodline, our extraordinarily similar histories, our respective dealings with the British, our similar experience with the Dutch, and our cultural histories as frontier nations on the outer edges of Western Civilization, the Afrikaner is the “Post Office Issue” American’s closest cousin, down to the guns, Bibles, John Deere tractors, and cut-the-crap attitude….. including “Praise the Lord and pass the ammo!”.

OK, so we speak English a little differently. So what? Below is a scene from Villiers in the northern Free State Prairie in South Africa, not the US Prairie. It’s the same John Deere used by the same farmers in both countries. Both are doing corn, but the ones in South Africa are being attacked and murdered because they are white. The ones in the US do not know their cousins are the subject of genocide plans. It is time to let them know.

4. I fundamentally trust in the basic value system of the ordinary American.

OK, so perhaps the comment is true that, “One can always count on the Americans to do the right thing after they have tried everything else”, but it means that if we hang in there long enough, they will eventually settle on the proper decent humane response. They are just fundamentally more humane than any other powerful nation “out there”, no matter what the Europeans try to tell you. Fundamentally they have the appropriate combination of heart and guts.

We’ll just steal your Land Quietly


, ,

— It would appear that the ANC today beat a hasty retreat in the face of rising worldwide outrage at its plans to steal the legally owned land of white people (read “farmers”). For once, the reaction was quite strong and Cyril “Mr BEE” Ramaphosa scrambled back furiously from the position that got him the presidency, namely his proposed  legalised theft of the property of white people based on their race. How deep was that ditch, Cyril?

The plan was to amend the Constitution to allow this theft. It would appear there is now a new plan in the making, following a few weeks of violence as various groups tried to snatch land (Hermanus above) in exactly the way Ramaphosa had said it would not happen. Methinks Lil’ Cyril has discovered what happens when the genie is let out of the bottle. I’m also sure his rich Globalist friends told him that they did not fancy being legally stolen from. They might just engineer an economic disaster to dethrone him. One way would be to collapse the nation’s currency, the Rand.


Enter the Communists

So a committee was formed under the leadership of Jeremy Cronin, until recently the white First Deputy Secretary of  the Communist Party, who is also a member of the National Executive Committee of the ANC (How else, for crying out loud?). The Communist Party does not contest elections. They just automatically get roles in the Government. Neat deal, eh? It’s a bit like Barack still has his creatures embedded in the US Government. This creature was jailed for his Communist Party activities from 1976-1983.

If one reads his Wikipedia write-up, one would swear he was a socialist angel with no sins. Oh…. he’s a poet. Surely that means he’s a “nice guy”….like a Berkeley professor? He was trained at University of Cape Town. He is also Deputy Minister of Public Works. One struggles to believe these creatures can still exist in 2018 after the 1989 Fall of the Berlin Wall; a little bit like Bernie Sanders in the USA, except that this one is actually the “Real Communist Deal”. The South African Communist Party describes him as “The Most Public Face of the Communist Party“.


To the Liberal American Reader

Now that the last link to the Communist Party website is open, see who that is in the banner of three faces at the top of the page?….. the one on the far right?’re seeing straight….it IS Mandela.

Oopsy! Now, next time we hated South Africans tell you something for 40 years, LISTEN and LEARN! We actually know our stuff and we’re not so sure you do, because your media has lied to you for decades upon decades and you forgot to ask questions. We, on the other hand, always knew he was a communist. Bill Clinton thought he was the Fourteenth Apostle, but then Slick Willie thought a lot of things. He thought Bin Laden was not much of problem either, if you see what I mean.

Just in case you think, like me, that the picture is a seriously unclear one, you can read the party’s full statement on Mandela’s death HERE on their official website. I quote part:

At his arrest in August 1962, Nelson Mandela was not only a member of the then underground South African Communist Party, but was also a member of our Party’s Central Committee. To us as South African communists, Cde Mandela shall forever symbolise the monumental contribution of the SACP in our liberation struggle. The contribution of communists in the struggle to achieve the South African freedom has very few parallels in the history of our country. After his release from prison in 1990, Cde Madiba became a great and close friend of the communists till his last days.

We’ll just do it quietly

And Cronin’s contribution?  He realises that changing the Constitution to legalize the theft will ring bells around the planet Earth. He has stated that the ANC is exploring new ways to allow for the possibility of land expropriation without changing the Constitution. So he muses,

Yes, we need to accommodate what is now an official ANC resolution that there needs to be the possibility of expropriation without compensation, but that possibility does not require changing the Constitution – it can be done via a statute, via [a] legislative process invoking the limitation clause inside of the property clause itself, in referring to the broader limitations in the Bill of Rights,

That translates in regular English to,

we’ll just do it quietly

Now they will apparently select who they might steal from. Guess who that will be.

In case the reader has any confusion as to where Cronin is coming from, his next comment about the EFF, who instigated this whole Land Theft Vote, should make matters entirely clear:

[The] EFF is proposing expropriation of all land without compensation – but what it is rather quiet about is that it would involve expropriating the land and homes of black people

So Cronin wants to be sure to steal only from whites. Do you need that any clearer? Really? Seriously?

By the way, you did know that Black people owned property in South Africa, or did you not? How’s that working percentage-wise in the USA; do Black folks own 12% of US real estate?

Hmmmm, I guess I was not supposed to ask that question, was I? So, explain to me again how it is that Whites in SA must only own land in the same proportion as their population?

The New American on the author of AmaBhulu


, , ,

— In an article of today’s date in The New American, American contributor Alex Newman extensively quotes the present author in the matter of developments and options in South Africa. The article was precipitated by the announcement of the planned dispossession of white people by the ANC government under the new president of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa. A former Secretary-General of the ANC Party, Ramaphosa was effectively Nelson Mandela’s second-in-command and his favorite to succeed him as president. History turned out differently in the intervening years.

Newman (below) has been a steadfast supporter of the basic human rights of Afrikaners and other threatened folks in South Africa

This blog has acknowledged Newman’s efforts on a number of occasions, such as when he reviewed the author’s book  AmaBhulu and also when he referred to it in very positive terms in a late 2017 video interview. He has also covered the views of this author in other articles.

I should like thank him on behalf of all the people of all races in South Africa who are threatened by the brazenly racist rhetoric and actions of the present  ANC government in South Africa.

Thank you, Alex, for being a man with a pen and a conscience; these form a rare combination indeed at the present time.

The First Clashes between Black & White


, , , ,

—The political types forever want to present a picture of Black and White having been permanently at war in South Africa. That is simply not true. As we have seen in the first three Chapters of the series South Africa: Who stole the Land?, it took 130 years from the Dutch settlement of the Cape before the first Frontier war at the Fish River, about 500 miles to the east of Cape town.

They also never tell the innocent reader that, in the first two frontier wars, the strongest amaXhosa King actually solicited the help of the Frontiersmen against (what he saw as) rebellious followers who were invading the white folks’ country. The struggles went back and forth over the coastal Suurveld countryside in the image above near Grahamstown, and in the drier interior in the Achter-Bruyntjeshoogte area around what is now Somerset-East (below).

The politicians also do not tell the reader that the amaXhosa councillors stated to British negotiators in 1819,

When our fathers and the fathers of the amaBhulu first settled the Suurveld, they dwelt together in peace.

That would be the Afrikaner Frontiersmenthe amaBhuluthat the councillors were talking about, complaining about British conduct up to the Fifth Frontier War, being the third such confrontation with the British.

In Chapter 4, (click to access), we recount what happened during the First and Second Frontier Wars. Both of these were between the Settlers and the “spin-off Houses” of the amaXhosa people. The powerful amaRharhabe people and their king sided with the Settlers.

I guess the Media and Politicians did not tell you that, did they? I just thought the reader should know these things in a spirit of openness and honesty.

The complete story of the development of the land issue in South Africa may be read in South Africa: Who stole the Land?
