Dammit! Die quietly, White Man!


, , , , ,

Miracle above Miracle! Someone has noticed!

In 1994, during the Great South African Election, all the world’s media was in that country, hoping to see a white bloodbath and get a scoop on that. I am not the only one making that point. Richard Dowden, a man who has missed no turn to make his “obligatory” hatred of white Afrikaners quite clear, also offers the statement in his book Africa – Altered States and Ordinary Miracles.

As the country started to slide into the Heart of Darkness scenario that I have described in detail elsewhere, the torture murders of white South African farmers have dramatically increased in the country. The Black National Socialist ANC government of the country stubbornly refuses to make statistics available on such attacks. That allows it to hide the problem, and the murders are consequently escalating beyond anything any nation on earth could possibly tolerate.

The formal media has absolutely refused to report on this, except when a Dutch or British-born farmer has been killed in the country. So, it is with great interest that I have been watching not one but two international Youtube News personages set off to the country to report on exactly this subject.

Miracle above Miracle! Someone has noticed! I am in shock.

One Brit and one Canadian

Young Right-leaning Canadian YouTuber, Lauren Southern (above), has been reporting from South Africa and doing an excellent job in the process. She’s obviously very intelligent and has pretty quickly grasped the basic  issues in the country. She is not fooled the way that British newspapermen and reporters typically are, because she does not come with their obligatory left leaning BBC slant. According to that particular calibration, no black man could ever conceivably do anything wrong if a white person is involved. Lauren states things the way they really are and the way it really looks like on the ground, without first running it through a “BBC/CNN Anti-Fact” filter.

Shortly after, the outspoken British equivalent, Katie Hopkins (below), set off to South Africa to investigate the matter of farm murders for herself. I must confess, I find Lauren Southern’s reports somehow more striking. She has really gone to extraordinary lengths to get key interviews. Some of them were extremely clear, such as THIS ONE. Others will leave a lasting impression, such as this one. However. We are waiting for the actual full production video to appear.

Lauren may want to brush up on the history of the country and its various peoples. I would love to sit her down for a day and get her properly calibrated on the lay of the land, its consequent history, its demographics, its racial groups, its eleven major black nations, and on what the White Afrikaner (of any mother tongue) has been through. It is very easy to make a mistake in respect of South Africa, and no one can afford for her credibility to be dented by avoidable mistakes. I do not think the young lady stands still long enough to read my book AmaBhulu. Stefan Molyneux got his people to read it for his presentation on South Africa a few years ago. He has now interviewed her in the last three days. She does at least know about the Fish River as historic border.

Lauren’s very evident shock at what she heard and saw explains why it is pretty much impossible to explain to Americans and Canadians what is going on in South Africa. They just simply do not believe one. Their minds cannot grasp such things. They just stare at one in incomprehension. And then they avoid one; the classic  psychological defence mechanism: if one ignores a problem, it does not exist. Lauren just speaks wide-eyed about it, using the word “bizarre” over and over. I suspect she’s just had the awakening of her life. Katie is evidently equally struck.

Dammit! Die quietly, white man!

It is the internationally more well-known and famously outspoken Katie Hopkins that attracted the attention of the ANC, and they moved to try and stop her. And this brings us to the ironic fact that the ANC government accused Katie Hopkins of “Spreading Racial Hatred” and tried to impound her passport.

So, let us see: A lady reporter tries to report on the murders of white farmers by black people in a country where parliamentary members sing songs with the lyrics “Kill the farmer”, but the government insists that SHE is spreading racial hatred. Are you kidding me?

One would think that the formal media would be all over this. But I think Katie is only now starting to comprehend just how insidious the effort of this whole global Liberal cabal really is.

The position of the ANC is clearly: “Dammit! Die quietly, White Man.” Thousands of White farmers in South Africa have now “died quietly”. I think the country is past the point where people can die quietly anymore. There has to be something very profoundly amiss with the value system of people in the West if they condone the situation in South Africa any further.

Nevertheless, Katie has managed to get the word out.

Make noise, lots of noise.

White people in South Africa have to stop this mindless idiocy of just sitting there and cursing the ANC along with their neighbours at a barbecue or over a beer. “Holding the other Christian cheek” will not work either. They will just be “slapped through that cheek” as well. I wish to high heaven I can get South African Whites to understand that they need to make noise…endless noise…extreme noise…by any means they conceivably can … to anyone within earshot.

But, the typical Afrikaner has been raised not to complain and to rather just pray that all will come right. The fact is, it won’t! Help is needed from outside the country in the form of political pressure on the ANC government, but the remaining decent folks in the rest of the world DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING. And I assure white South Africans that the formal media is their enemy.   Having ignored the subject completely since 1994, they now clearly seek to question whether there is a problem at all. It is time folks told this errant DNA lowlife in the formal media that they have screwed up unforgivably. In this respect, President Trump is a one-man wrecking ball for the US media and BBC, and I appreciate that.

If white South Africans think using formal channels alone will work, they are deluded. HERE is the evidence that the formal structures of the world will NOT listen. The best that will ever be obtained from them is a lament over the death of the white people in South Africa after those white folks are all conveniently dead or gone. Yes, one can follow those routes, but folks must not mislead themselves into believing that they can secure a future by only that route.

So, when people like Lauren Southern and Katie Hopkins start to take up the flag on the subject and tell the wold, I seriously suggest white South Africans start making as though they want to be heard. At the very least, they can contribute financially to the efforts of these two brave ladies who have done more for the plight of White Farmers in the country than absolutely anyone else put together, including myself, despite my best efforts.

Stop dying quietly!

Is the USA now South Africa?


, , , , ,

When a Nation’s Top Law Enforcer is the Crook

— If former Federal Prosecutor Joe di Genova (below) is right, then the USA is indeed now South Africa, and I have every reason to believe he is spot-on 100% correct. His entire presentation (click on the picture) makes perfect sense from beginning to end.

In South Africa, the national FBI (The “Scorpions”) was shut down in 2009 by Parliament when it ended up investigating a large number of Members and associated politicians for crimes various. The final shutdown came in January 2009, after it had clashed with Jackie Selebi, then National Commissioner of Police. BUT, eighteen months later, Selebi, once president of Interpol, WAS indeed found guilty of Corruption, as per the charges earlier brought by the Scorpions and sentenced to 15 years in jail. He died in 2015. He was infamous for his comment,”What’s all the fuss about crime?” – that from the highest ranking policeman!

Come to think of it, that sounds remarkably like “What DIFFERENCE at this point does – it – make?” In South Africa, Selebi had perpetrated a crime; Hillary I’m not sure about. All I know is that the wrong people were prosecuted.

With the South African FBI effectively removed, the way was open for the new State President, Jacob Zuma, to pilfer the state coffers and to give the country away to a family of Indian crooks. They rose to enough power to control cabinet appointments to favour their pockets. The People of South Africa now finally know that this is happening, and they can decide to vote again for the same ANC criminals in Parliament, or for someone else. Unfortunately, South Africa is so far gone, that I have to assume they will simply vote for the same crowd again, sorry to say.

Did Obama turn the United States into South Africa?

The United States styles itself the Leader of the West. It prides itself on its respect for the Rule of Law, its Constitution, its Judicial system, its Electoral system, its Congressional procedures, its Oversight Committees, its Federal Bureau of Investigation, and its Special Prosecutors. However, if Mr Di Genova is correct, the decent People of the United States may want to take a deep breath, because I believe they are about to be shocked to their core. What he says happened at the highest investigative levels under President Obama will likely be revealed in the next few weeks. CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, and the New York Times may want to start practicing how to draft letters of apology to President Trump. Alternatively, they may want to apply from scratch for press credentials with the White House (See press briefing below). At the very least, a lot of the bile-spewing faces are going to have to disappear from the TV screen at their studios and editorial offices before all the dust settles.

I say the above because the picture laid out by Mr. Di Genova, as summarized below and filled in by myself in places [in brackets] based on information released this very day and on existing public information, is extremely worrying and it started on Obama’s watch.

The Essence of the Di Genova Picture

    • 1. [On 2 March 2015, the New York Times ran an article reporting Hillary’s use of a personal server for her government work. No human being who has ever handled confidential information, including this author, or anyone who has been the source thereof, as she was and I was, could possibly plead ignorance of the security violation this represented].

    • 2. [The Counterintelligence Office of the FBI got involved in July/August 2015 after the situation was referred to them by the Intelligence Community Inspector General.]

    • 3. When she started making plans to run for office, it would appear parties in her Clinton Campaign, the Democratic National Committee, the Justice Department, and the Counterintelligence Office of the FBI got together to figure out how to get Hillary off the hook on this subject. The solution was a sham investigation to get all of this out of the way before the Nov 8, 2016 Election. As Di Genova puts it, “They followed none of the regular rules, gave her every break in the book, immunized all kinds of people, allowed the destruction of evidence, with no grand jury, no subpoenas, no search warrants. That’s not an investigation. That’s a Potemkin village. It’s a farce.

    • 4. [On 3 May 2016, Trump won the Indiana Republican Primary. At this point there was a fascinating exchange between Peter Strzok of the FBI and his paramour, FBI Attorney Lisa Page]. Work on the “Mid Year Exam” (codename for the Clinton investigation) would have to be speeded up. The team now knew Trump would be the opposition to Clinton.

    • 5. Somewhere over the foregoing period, the decision had been made to tarnish Mr. Trump as candidate. For this, they needed authority to spy on him, and for that they needed a warrant from the unsuspecting Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) Court. And this is where the really serious crimes started. A contorted financial manoeuvre was then performed to fund Fusion GPS, employer of the wife of one of the alleged Justice Department co-conspirators and conduit to British ex-spy Michael Steele. He was to generate enough bogus information to convince the FISA Court. But the team had not reckoned with two things: (1) the fact that Trump might actually win (!), and (2) the depth of character of Admiral Mike Rogers, head of the much maligned NSA.

    • 6. Rogers had already picked up that the FBI was sharing with “contractors” [some associated with the Clinton Campaign] information on American individuals spied on in the process of targeting foreign individuals. He also knew that the FISA Court requests were being signed by John Carlin of the FBI. He resolved to tell the FISA court about this. Somehow the FBI found out about his intentions, and they beat him to the FISA Court to tell the Court that the information had “accidentally slipped out” to parties who were not supposed to have it. This prompted the FISA court to investigate.

    • 7. And then came the momentous election in which Mr. Trump won, and the wheels came off the conspirators’ plan. They now had only limited time to cover their tracks and implement a plan to destroy the Presidency of Donald Trump. That plan rested on getting a Special Prosecutor appointed to investigate “Collusion” between the Trump Campaign and Russia. [They now had to bridge the time between the election and the appointment of such a Special Prosecutor.] They VERY nearly got away with it.

    • 8. And THIS is where the hero steps up to the plate: Admiral Rogers, realizing that there was now a President Elect, decided on own initiative to go and brief Mr. Trump on the fact that he was being spied on by the FBI. He did so on 17 November 2016.

    • 9. The very next day, 18 November 2016, President Elect Trump moved his whole Transition Team out of Trump Towers and into his Bedminster, New Jersey Golf Club. He also managed to mention to the media that the Obama Administration had “wiretapped” Trump Tower. Everyone thought he was crazy and he was ridiculed in the media. But, according to Di Genova, he spoke the Gospel truth.

    • 10. In response to this, according to Di Genova, James Clapper, Director of National intelligence, and John Brennan, head of the CIA, went to President Obama and demanded that he fire the Admiral, but Obama refused on the grounds that it would tarnish what remained of his Presidency. It is at this point that John Carlin, the man who signed the bogus FISA court requests suddenly resigned and effectively disappeared from view. [By these events one naturally has to wonder about the roles the CIA and DNI played in the effort at undoing the President Elect. We are now talking things that are vastly more scary than the incompetent Watergate break-in and the Nixon tapes.]

    • 11. [Starting 14 December 2016, so claims the FBI this very day, January 22, 2018, text messages between Strzok and Page, source of much clarity concerning the foregoing events, go “very usefully” lost. I elect to quote a Canadian source for this news, just to get it away from the suspect US media]

    • 12. On April 27, 2017, The FISA Court released an Opinion which stated that they had been deceived by the FBI on an ongoing basis. The publicly released version of this document has the names of the individual offenders redacted, but Devin Nunes, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, now has the un-redacted version. Hardly anyone took any notice of this crucial document when it was released.

    • 13. On May 17, 2017, with newly appointed Attorney General Jeff Sessions having recused himself from the investigation of the “Collusion”, his Deputy, Rod Rosenstein, appointed as Special Prosecutor Bob Mueller, a close colleague of the fired head of the FBI, James Comey. [This very day it is announced that, as by sheer magic, the text messages between Strzok and Page for the very next day and the period after are NOT missing, as is the case with all those messages over the critical period between 14 December 2016 and the date of Mueller’s appointment. How outrageously ‘useful’!]


I may have been born in Darkest Africa, but I can smell corruption through an air conditioner. And I have not yet dealt with the obvious fact that the previous Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, was clearly part of the whole plot to exonerate Clinton. That became entirely clear from the Strzok/Page texts released today.

I can also explain that I have dealt quite a bit with the US legal process in my work, and the first thing that happens when litigation is filed, or threatened, or an investigation is launched, is that you are advised that all information has to be secured and handed over to a designated officer in your organization. The relevant portions of your PC, phone, discs etc. are then copied. This is part of a process they refer to as “Discovery” by which all your communications become accessible. It is then left to the lawyers of the two sides to negotiate who sees what confidential information. In the US Government Service, it is all secured by default.

Do not anyone try to tell me the FBI with all its massive crowds of attorneys does not know this if I from the “Bush of Africa” know it. The willful destruction or withholding of evidence is a crime in most civilized countries. A herd of people are guilty of at least the very lowest charge, that of Perverting the Course of Justice. At the highest level, if there is Justice, a bunch of people need to land in jail for serious lengths of time. Hillary should be convicted, and then Trump should pardon her in order to heal the nation and let her slither off into the sunset. That is what Ford did for Nixon. He should not divide the nation further.

The United States of America, its Respect for the Rule of Law and its Respect for the Processes of its Democracy are now in the hands of Devin Nunes. Di Genova sees Nunes as the other sterling hero in this sordid tale. He feels the man held his footing through months of personal attacks from the Left. This author’s judgement is still up in the air, because Nunes has not yet released this picture.

The Fallout

I am not an American voter, but I care deeply about what happens in the US. My friends of longest standing are Americans, and events there affect me more deeply than events in Ottawa, Canada. Countries like South Africa, where I was born, are swept about like butterflies in the wake of the 747 of the United States. And, to continue the 747-parallel, the Di Genova analysis looks awfully much as though the 747 is heading for a bad  stall. There is a very… VERY…dizzying ride ahead.

Australia may have some “clear air turbulence” of its own related to the Clinton Foundation. Recall that it was recently “revealed” that the Trump “Russia Collusion” investigation was supposedly triggered by information from “Australian Government Officials” based on revelations by a minor Trump functionary, George Papadopoulos “at a bar”. This to shift the focus from the accusations, at least until then, that the FBI connived with the Clinton campaign.

I’m afraid I really DID warn about this back in October 2016. I was actually quite precise…. and I did refer to the lack of a grand jury surrounding FBI Chief Comey’s exoneration of Hillary Clinton. He did not have the power to exonerate her. I also warned about instability if she lost the election. The plot is just way worse than even I thought at the time. In fact, it seems worse than the events in South Africa. Something is not just “rotten in the state of Denmark“, the “putrefaction is dripping off the walls of its highest institutions“.

Now What?

I confess that I am actually scared. Instability in the United States is seriously bad news for Western Civilization. It will take Leadership, Guts, and Determination to fix this mess. I don’t think Jeff Sessions has what it takes in the least.  He has to go. Matters have gone beyond the point where things can be fixed by playing within the “Queensberry Rules” that he has been trying to follow. The gloves have to come off spectacularly. It calls for an altogether different kind of leadership. Heads need to roll,….many…and quickly. No quarter should be seen to be granted in this matter. I warned in 2016 about the Rule of Law being in danger, and here we now see the problem.

I seriously trust the Criminal Investigation that MUST NOW FOLLOW will also cover the role of the media companies I listed above. Their efforts have been just too closely coordinated for my liking.  I don’t just smell a rat; I think it is an entire lake full of beavers gnawing away at what made America great in the first place. Do not be surprised if this goes back to Whitewater and Vince Foster. (See June/July 1993 in that article). The kind of vermin that infests these “lakes” tends to stick in the undergrowth for many years. President Trump shall have to break up the entire “beaver dam”.

As a new manager I’ve had to clean house and charge people in my management career, and this picture feels uncomfortably familiar.

America is in unchartered waters….. and the waters are deep. And while South Africans have to think about voting for the same crooks again, the decisions lying in wait for the American public later this year are not that much different.

It is amazing how often I have to tell Americans to spend $1500 to go and see South Africa so they can know their future.

We Want Our Country Back – Ohio Speaks


, , ,

Americans Want Their Country Back

— In May of 2016, six months before the US presidential election and even before the primary election cycle was finished, I presented the case for why I thought Mr. Trump would win the election. At the time I wrote the first edition of the article, Senator Cruz and Governor Kasic were still in the race. The first edition, which had taken me a long time to write, appeared on very the day of the fateful Indiana Primary. I faded their pictures for the second edition.

If there was one line in the two articles that summarized the entire situation I was seeing, it was my recorded statement “Americans basically want their country back…” I felt, along with millions of Americans, that Obama had turned their country into an un-American monstrosity. Through my eyes, that monstrosity looked way too much like South Africa, a country admired by Obama. In fact, he is on record that events in the 1980s in South Africa inspired him to enter politics in the USA. That is also when his name mystically reverted from “Barry” to “Barack”. His first ever public address was on the subject of South Africa and he saw South Africa’s Communist leader, Rolihlahla Mandela, as his idol. He had even appointed the ghostwriter for Mandela’s “auto”-biography to his administration. Since the vast bulk of Americans had been wholly misled by their media on the subject of Mandela, I assume I have to forgive them the profound idiocy of electing that man to the Oval Office.

In the very same section of my article I wrote,”I trust Americans will elect a president that will make the leading country of the Free World strong again. I have lost the country of my birth to the kind of forces that lurk in the Obama Administration. I have seen it thereby turned into a hell hole and dangerous laughing stock. I cannot stomach the destruction of Western Civilization one inch further.

Ohio Speaks

After a full year’s worth of mentally deranged bile from the Democratic Party & Mainstream Media Complex, a vividly contrived Collusion Investigation, vain eforts to sketch the president as suffering from dementia, heart failure, or anything that holds hope of getting him removed from office, this bevy of human failures is finally faced with the truth from a collection of Ohio Democrat voters who voted for Mr. Trump.

Listen to the very last second of the video clip. I rest my case.


What makes it so much more fascnating, is that it is the National Bile Channel, CNN, that is conducting the interview. In fact, it is Martin Savidge, who folks will remember from endless nights locked in a Flight Simulator in March 2014 during the disappearance of Flight MH370. The actual missing aircraft is in the image below. Does this portend something for the insane Anti-Trump flight that CNN is on?

At the time, some viewers tweeted “Martin, blink three times if you are being held against your will” and the hashtag #freemartinsavidge appeared on Twitter.

Perhaps it is time that the hashtag #FreeCNNhosts appears, because I simply cannot believe that rational humans—and I must believe people like Wolf Blitzer, John King, and Dana Bash have retained some rational brain function—can maintain a year’s worth of the rank tripe that CNN has been polluting the expensive airwaves with without feeling trapped and hemmed in by unreality.

The Truths We Hold to be Self-Evident


, , ,

President Trump and Holes Various

— A few days ago the Liberal American Media went into spasms of shock, and the usual set of spineless Republicans “crawled under their chairs”. Their president was reported by a common classroom snitch called Durbin to have used the word “S***hole” to describe some African countries. This happened in a discussion in which the President felt America needed  immigrants who brought value to the USA rather than problems and demands for permanent support. The senators presenting their plan to him had made no effort to include any of his demands; hence the well-placed explosion.

The President’s position seems entirely reasonable to me. I do not much care about his language; he was elected to be Commander-in-Chief and not Sunday School Teacher-in-chief.

The same media people yet again went into spasms of shock today when they heard that the same president was hale and healthy and had aced a mental cognitive test by his doctor (30 out of 30). The Liberal media has been thinking itself down a hole in the ground.  They have convinced themselves that he is certifiably mad; all this by them standing in a circle vomiting bile and hatred and deigning to call it “news”. They only listen to themsleves—a true sign of madness. They have actually committed the ultimate sin of believing their own BS.

I should like to suggest that every member of the White House Press Corps be subjected to a mental aptitude test before being allowed into the press conferences held at the White House. It might resolve a lot of problems. BUT, let me not waylay myself here. I would like to move to an article by a thinking American; a kind of human that is becoming more and more difficult to find among the “elite” in that country today. The straight thinking is now done by regular folks. I have always felt the nearest farmer is tougher to BS than any professor. I should know; I taught at university.

Enter the Peace Corps

It is against this background that Karin McQuillan wrote an absolutely brilliant piece in the American Thinker, and I should like to share it here.

Please read it, because every South African with a brain will likely scream “Hallelujah; for she has seen!“. She joins one other American I have met who broadly told me the same in 1984 on Flight Pan Am 001 over the Pacific. He had also worked in the Peace Corps in Africa. Sadly, I have had to wait 34 years to hear a second American confess the truth.

Regrettably, it is not possible to get all Americans to go work in the Peace Corps in Africa, otherwise it may have been a simple matter to defend the West and Civilization. Unfortunately we are beset by idiots in high places whose exposure to the world is an American Leftist University Campus, a Safe Space, and a Starbucks coffee spot… and , of course, daddy’s money. At the same time we are beset by a malicious Media with a very suspect agenda and a pathetic track record.

The lady is perfectly right in what she describes, but I think the deeper message in her text is in the following section.

The truths we hold to be Self-evident

The US Declaration of Independence, a document I hold as the highest point of human moral endeavour, a document that speaks to some of the most basic aspects of Western Civilization, has the following key words after the opening line:

We hold these truths to be selfevident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

McQuillan remarks that:

The longer I lived there, the more I understood: it became blindingly obvious that the Senegalese are not the same as us.  The truths we hold to be self-evident are not evident to the Senegalese.  How could they be?  Their reality is totally different.  You can’t understand anything in Senegal using American terms.

Naïveté or Innocence

Folks who live outside North America and Europe do not appreciate how utterly naive these Northern Hemisphere folks are in the matter of the rest of the world. Long gone are the days of Colonies when Englishmen knew what happened in distant places.  Most Americans really think that folks in Africa are just Americans who can’t afford a suit. When they visit as tourists, they don’t really see what is going on. They marvel at the animals and the scenery or the other tourist sites, but they don’t see reality. The people they meet are prepared for them. It is how Amy Biehl ended up being killed in Gugulethu outside Cape Town in 1993. The Peace Corps workers, however, get exposed to reality, and it can be a daunting experience for them. It tears at the fundamentals of their  beliefs.

Here, finally, we have written testimony that there really are at least a handful of Americans who realise the truth. They learnt it the hard way. Folks in South Africa, who have 360 years worth of experience of this, need to comprehend that it is difficult for folks in the Northern Hemisphere to see straight when they look at Africa. It is not stupidity at work; it is innocence. But the folks in North America and Europe, in their turn, need to learn just how high a price is exacted from others, such as white South Africans, for this innocence.

Be not deluded though. There are millions who want White South Africans dead in order to atone for their own guilt about Slavery. They wallow in this guilt as though it is a security blanket. But the beneficiaries of that guilt complex will one day strangle them with that very blanket.

“A Fecalized Environment”

Meanwhile, McQuillan states about her service in Senegal,

That danger was considerable, because it was, in the words of the Peace Corps doctor, ‘a fecalized environment.’

So, Mr. President, next time please refer to Africa as a “Fecalized Environment” and not a “S***hole”. The Peace Corps doctor said so.

And my words to Karin McQuillan?:

Ma’am, Senegal is actually one of the better places in Africa and used to be a serious country in world matters with a much respected leader in Léopold Senghor. Just so’s you know!

Zuma – It’s not the man; it’s the hat!


, , ,

— Years ago there was a TV commercial for Cremora Coffee Creamer, in which the man of the house was struggling to find his Cremora. It ends with the man growling,”It’s not inside! It’s on top!“, referring to the Cremora on top of the family refrigerator.

The problem with the tribal polygamist Zulu president, Jacob Zuma, is like the refrigerator in the Cremora commercial. It is not what is inside of him, it is what is on top of him. He is just a traditionalist Zulu who believes in a culture of “hail to the chief”, “what’s yours is now mine”, brazen patronage, gifts to the chief, and all the other cultural things that make Africa a Global Backwater. He simply cannot get his head around why corruption is wrong. He believes it is expected, and if you’re NOT corrupt, you are deemed an idiot not worthy of the position or the respect that comes with being chief. He cannot understand any of this “Corruption stuff”, and he will die not understanding it.

The actual problem is with what’s on top…. of his head. That is an ANC (African National Congress) cap. The man has survived six motions of no confidence in parliament, because the African National Congress Party of Mandela has bailed him out every single time. This is because THEY believe corruption is correct. They have bled the country dry and have pilfered the system of the country to the point where the world at large has finally realised it. Of course, the regular media of the West sees their black faces and immediately thereupon forgive them anything from theft to murder. So, they repeatedly get away with it. Meanwhile, his head is clearly too big for the cap. It kind of “comes with the territory”; welcome to Africa.

However, yesterday the Constitutional Court finally ruled that the Assembly—read “The ANC”—had “failed to hold to account” the president. It gave them a time limit for doing something about it.

It is pretty clear that various folks will be going all out to impeach him, and he should have been impeached and removed years ago. However, I want him to stick around. Every minute his savage tribal mug appears under that hat in the picture is a blow in the interest of civilization. The reason is simple: he is just a symptom, the disease is the ANC. Every minute he can be associated with the ANC is a minute well spent.

So, dear Mr. Zuma, I’d love for you to wear an ANC hat every single day for what remains of your tenure. Unfortunately, the people of South Africa think you are the problem and that the hat is just an adornment. They are terribly wrong. You are just a regular backwater Zulu village chief doing what regular backwater village chiefs do al over Africa. What makes you so odious and destructive is that despicable thing on your head which gave you access to the state coffers. However, since they all think the stink of corruption emanates from you, I’d be ever so happy if you’d remain under that hat for as absolutely long as possible to do maximum possible damage to the ANC.

It is said that a fish rots from the head. However, in South Africa the whole fish has been rotten for decades now. In this particular case, the whole fish has to be destroyed because it is stinking up the whole countryside. And I’d like Zuma around as advertisement for the problem. Two more years of mayhem after twenty-four is a small price to pay for the long-term gain of seeing the ANC rot off its own bone.

The problem with South Africa is not Zuma; it is the ANC.
