— 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.

Much to our shame, the U.S. population has been brainwashed by the mainstream press since after WW II & before!! We didn’t even know that a tiny “club” of people were actually running the world!!
According to the history that you have so ably put forth, Harry, it seems the country you once knew has resorted to its past “ways” with the help of the Communists. It is so very sad, but in the light of “reality”……what can be done about it at this point in time? At age 75, having been raised in the American education system, I can truthfully say I knew NOTHING about the true history of South Africa, except there was a Boer War. Until I saw you on the video with Sarah Westall, I was blissfully unaware of South African history myself!!
Some of us have now realized that Barry was simply a groomed “plant” to take the U.S. down from the inside….I would say he came near close to accomplishing that, but now a great number of people have been awakened to the fact that “something” is wrong & are trying vey hard to right the ship once again.
It is very sad, but the world at large seems not to care what is happening in South Africa….but how are they to know if the “news” is not allowed to be truthfully spread??
You, yourself, are a GREAT credit to your nation & each of us is only capable of doing “so much”, one day at a time, right?!! Most people are so taken up with their daily lives that they are “tuned out” to the world at large & see only what affects them personally. Sad….but true!!

Firstly, thank you for the kind words about my efforts.
Secondly, what can be done, is that the US state Department can put pressure on the ANC government in SA to “cut it out”. But that requires a recognition of the truth, which is terribly difficult given the state of the Western Formal Media.
In the first part of your talk you mention a futuristic replay of the Mfecane. What you fail to do is take cognizance of the role of foreign powers. As we have seen in ALL of the recent “liberation” history. In the Congo, in Rhodesia, in Angola, in NAmibia, including the break-away state, Biafra. It becomes quite clear that these black armed forces are — on their own — quite incapable of what was achieved.Do you REALLY think that any break down of law and order and the beginnings of armed conflict in South Africa will NOT attract the attention of the same foreign powers that have had a hand in the long history of “de-colonization” in Africa?
Look at Angola or Rhodesia for an inkling of what would likely happen in South Africa. One could also look at the Lebanon (Beirut), Syria, and Libya.

There are several places and events one can look to for insight on what is happening, and might happen in South Africa. In contacting me for this interview the hosts were particularly interested in the Mfecane that happened in South Africa between 1816 and 1836. In that case it was Imperial Britain that could not stay out of it. So, you are quite right in pointing out that greater powers will get involved when the South African “boil bursts”. That is, after all, why I am focusing my effort on the United States.
