Katie Hopkins the New Emily Hobhouse?


, , ,

— Katie Hopkins has somehow become South Africa’s new Emily Hobhouse.

In 1901, the British Powers that Be would not believe what was happening in the British Army concentration camps in South Africa.  Afrikaner women, children and elderly were herded into these camps after the British Army had dynamited their homes, burnt their crops, and killed all their livestock. In reality, the picture below is what was happening. It shows Elizabeth van Zyl dying from malnourishment because she was put on half-rations due to her father not having surrendered. Of my Booyens relations who entered those camps, 57% died there.

Only when an Englishwoman of some Character and Principle visited the camps and disclosed the horror to the British people was anything done to reduce the death rate in the camps. She was Emily Hobhouse (below). She became an advocate for the human rights of the Afrikaner women and children. A deeply thankful Afrikaner nation eventually interred her remains at the Women’s Memorial in Bloemfontein, South Africa and named a town in that Province after her.

Now, 120 years later, the Afrikaner is in dire need of help again, and again it is the Western World and its vile Media, just as in 1899, that have connived to force on the White Afrikaner the horrors that are happening in South Africa. And again it is a concerned Englishwoman who is standing up and getting counted despite all the forces arrayed against her. I know Katie can be extremely “rough” by the standards that Afrikaners live by, but she is fighting some extremely vile forces that want Afrikaners dead, and one cannot fight an all-consuming fire with pixie dust.

I submit Katie Hopkins has become the Afrikaners’ new Emily Hobhouse.

The image below shows the Women’s memorial in Bloemfontein, South Africa.

I trust Katie understands how thankful this little nation is for her efforts on their behalf. Just watch her describe on a Dutch TV programme the situation of the Afrikaner and the principled stand of the farmers; to her the situation is “Biblical” and one sees her emotion on the subject. I also submit that the Dutch might want to ponder how it is that the “New Emily Hobhouse” is not one of their own ladies. They are, after all, the ancestral nation of the Afrikaners and the originators of the language of the Afrikaners.

Katie is right. Thank you for having a heart, ma’am.

On Standing up and getting Counted


, , , ,

— Stuart Agnew is a Member of the European Parliament for the Eastern Counties (of England) constituency. More particularly, he is a member of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), the party formerly led by the very vocal Nigel Farage, who spearheaded Britain’s agreed exit from the European Union.

He visited South Africa in the last few days, along with a European Parliament colleague, Danilo Lancini of the Lega Party in Italy. The Lega party is rapidly gaining support in the ruling coalition government. The two-man delegation met in South Africa with Advocate Anton Alberts of the Freedom Front Plus. Alberts commented that both visitors were visibly shocked at the circumstances in South Africa:

The disbelief on their faces is something that I will never forget. Even though Europe and Britain are under immense political and social pressure, they did not think that things could get this bad in a country like South Africa.

The delegation undertook to take these matters up with the EU Parliament. Mr Lancini also committed to take up the subject of the outrages in South Africa  specifically with the Italian government.

It is heartening to see Europeans standing up and getting counted. Thus far, not a single North American Congressman has so much as uttered a word on the subject of South Africa. Of course President Trump has spoken on the subject, but he was met with a torrent of derision in the United States. Perhaps the situation is separating the men from the boys? Americans should take note. A few honourable Europeans and Brits are taking a stand, while the American politicians, except for President Trump and John Sullivan, his Deputy Secretary of State, are nowhere to be found.

Why the silence boys? You were quick to vote en masse to overturn president Reagan’s veto of comprhensive sanctions against South Africa in the late eighties.  How about you do the right thing for a change and pressure the voilently racist ANC regime in South Africa? What was that about sauce and geese and ganders again….? Need I remind you that the old National Party government did not preach the killing of Black people from a stage; but the present Black parliamentarians do exactly that regarding Whites?

Mr. Agnew has gone so far as to publicise the South African situation on his political website.

We have here a man separated from the boys, think you not?

The Afrikaner Boer to Inspire the West – Katie Hopkins


, , , , ,

— In a presentation at the David Horowitz Freedom Center Restoration Weekend  in November 2018 in Sherman Oaks, California, the firebrand British Conservative, Katie Hopkins, talked about the threat to the values of the West. I am not as “Far Right” as Katie, but near the end of her presentation she posed a question, “What can we put our faith in?“. And this is when she turned to her experience in South Africa early in 2018. She found her inspiration in the Faith that the Afrikaner Boer (farmer) has in his God and his Land. And it is inspiring to hear her speak with such passion and conviction on the subject. Click on that link and listen!

She did warn in the previous year that she was going to spend time with South African farmers, and she did.

I have to say that I never thought I would live to experience the day that an Englishwoman would find her Faith and inspiration via the ordinary Afrikaner Boer; the men who really created South Africa out of the unforgiving blood-soaked rock of Africa.

That country is now being utterly destroyed by the “former” Listed Terrorist Organization that is now its government. Those farmers live in fear of their and their families’ lives every minute of every day. At the same time, that “government” threatens them every minute of every day. Thousands have been murdered, many of them tortured to death, the most threatened group of people in the most dangerous place supposedly “at peace” on earth.

To Americans I say, perhaps President Trump could similarly take inspiration from these men of Faith who stand so solidly by their convictions on the Outer Wall of Civilization. As Katie rightly says, they are a glimpse into the future of the West. The forces now destroying the White people of South Africa are coming for Europe and North America.

Consider yourselves warned.

White Farmer Killings & Persecutions, South Africa


, , ,

— On 27 February 2019 I did an interview with Sarah Westall on the subject of what is going on in South Africa. We were let down somewhat by the vagaries of Skype, which always seems to cough and splutter just when a clear transmission is imperative; this despite my high technology equipment.

The interview comes in two parts and was posted yesterday:

Sarah’s webpage on the subject is HERE.

For those who would like to have later history addressed, I’d be entirely happy to continue the discussion. We really only got as far as 1814. I personally believe one of the basic problems in South Africa to be that many people seem to think the history of the country starts in 1948. By the middle of 1990 most of the discriminatory laws on the ground had been repealed.  In fact, the period from 1948 to 1990 is no more than about 11% of the history of the country since the Dutch arrived. I submit it is important to understand the other 89% of that history and I’d welcome the opportunity to discuss this…. warts and all.

But here’s the thing, and there is no way to get around it:

  • It took 320 years to build the country;
  • It took 18 years for the international community to grind it into the ground ;
  • It took three years of subsequent political mayhem; and then
  • it took the ANC government just 25 years to destroy the results of 320 years’ worth of hard work handed to them on a silver platter.

Along the way we had a stupid and insensitive White government. But it was competent. Now the place has a stupid and insensitive Black government, and it is incompetent.

The thing is, I do not remember White National Party leaders dancing on stage singing “Shoot to kill! Kiss/ll the Black, the Ba’Ntu! P-r-r-r-r pow! pow!“.  In fact, I have no evidence that they could dance at all. I do not remember the National Party accusing Black nations of stealing the land of others, even though they DID EXACTLY THAT. I do not remember the National Party accusing Black South Africans of enslaving other South Africans, though the SA Black people DID DO EXACTLY THAT. Yet White South Africans have to hear this “land theft” stuff from a national president whose own people arrived in South Africa at the same time as the Dutch. — go figure!!

So, sure! Let’s talk about it!

South African Crisis reaches US Border


, , , ,

— On Sunday 3 March 2019 I joind BIll Cundiff and Erin Ryan of WeThePeopleRadio for two hours on the above subject. Matters are now clearly escalating rapidly in South Africa. I had American radio or video interviews on three different days of last week, and yet again later today. The full interview with Erin and Bill may be heard HERE and covers the the content of my previous post, The Hour of our Need is Arrived.

I received a note back from these good folks and I share part of it here:

We feel very honored to help you sound the alarm for the wonderful people of South Africa. Please tell those with whom you communicate that we pray for them every day.

The Hour of our Need is Arrived


, , , , ,

■ The Crisis in South Africa reaches the US Border

—The first ever White South African farmer and his family have asked for asylum at the US border with Mexico. After waiting in a Mexican holding facility for three weeks, they met with US Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) and spent three days in the custody of that agency. Over that period they had extensive interviews, including a “Credible Fear Test”, which they apparently passed. Their daughter, a minor, was questioned for two hours without the presence of her parents. They have been paroled into the custody of friends in the US without having to wear ankle bracelets for tracking. Based on what Customs & Border Patrol learnt in the process, the family has been allowed to at least APPLY for asylum. There is a long road ahead for them, but they have done it all the correct way as far as the United States authorities are concerned. They did not jump a fence. They were not handled by “Coyotes”. They did not clash with ICE in any way. They simply presented themselves properly to Customs and Border Patrol and asked for asylum from those who threaten their existence.

The attorney helping them (below) has made a video and provides some background. Listen to her for a description of what happened to this family in South Africa.

While I, Harry Booyens, have not personally heard of such cases as theirs in South Africa (yet), their claims as to the events that transpired in South Africa sound entirely credible in the current climate in that country. I am in no position to confirm their specific claims. However, I defer to a body of people better placed to assess the veracity of their story, namely, Customs and Border Patrol, who should be able to sniff out liars, cheats, and chancers by now.

I do not know the identity of the family and I would under no circumstances divulge it if I knew. The reason is simple. The moment their name is known, the Communist controlled ANC government in South Africa, along with their staunch allies, the BBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, the New York Times and the Washington Post, will start to assail the character of the family and that Government will serve a demarche on the US Ambassador to South Africa demanding any possible asylum be withdrawn. Again, without me getting into the specifics of a case, the ANC Government did that in Canada and the Canadian Conservative Party, of all organizations, rolled over, suing its own Refugee Board to reverse a decision. As you well know, white people in North America only have to hear the word “racist” in a sentence somewhere on the horizon, before they will drop their guns, throw away their shoes, and run for their very lives in the four wind directions, no matter what the truth or reality or the nature of the party uttering that word. As to the formal media, always remember Lenin was a newspaperman and the first issue in December 1900 of his newspaper, Iskra (below), had an article on South Africa’s white Afrikaner people.

■ The World was Warned

When my book AmaBhulu was published in February 2014, I warned that South Africa was 5 years away from its racial crisis point. I also warned that the United States would unavoidably be dragged into it. My prediction was disturbingly accurate. The above family arrived in Mexico on 15 January 2019 and saw CBP in February 2019, almost exactly five years after publication of the book. The new South African President, Cyril Ramaphosa, first made his announcements about Expropriation without Compensation (EWC) of the Property of white people (Legalized theft of the property of Whites) at roughly the four year mark in early 2018. Seven months later, in November 2018, the South African Parliament approved moving forward with EWC.

The ordinary hard-working and award-winning white commercial farmers in South Africa, such as Abraham C. van Wyk and his wife Lizelle (below), are the equivalent of the Kansas corn-farmers of the United States. Men like Abraham and his ancestors before him, working this soil since the 1850s, figured out the all-important dryland farming science in a countryside where indigenous Black people never farmed in history because they never knew how.

Ramaphosa is, of course, the protégé and “favored child” of Mandela, who has since been revealed to have been a central member of the Politburo of the South African Communist Party (SACP) all along. You can see:

(1) the media dodging around the issue HERE in 2012 when Mandela was still alive,

(2) Award winning post-apartheid author Rian Malan addressing it objectively based on the ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT of Mandela’s autobiography HERE in 2014, soon after his death, and you can see

(3) the South African Communist Party admitting his membership HERE, the moment he was dead in December 2013 (See the fifth paragraph in that link).

■ One of the Oldest Communist Parties on earth

The SACP is one of the very oldest Communist Parties on earth, originally founded largely on expatriates from the Baltic States, particularly Lithuania, and on expatriate Welsh coal miners. The founding organizations of the party were, according to A. Davidson et al (South Africa and the Communist International, Vol.1, p. 69 (2003)):

• The International Socialist League of South Africa;
• the Poalei-Zion (linked to the international Marxist Jewish organization of the same name);
• the Jewish Socialist Party of the Cape;
• the Marxian Club (from Durban);
• the Communist Party of the Cape;
and individuals from the Labour Party of South Africa.

The Lithuanian influence has remained to this day (See for example Ronnie Kasrils, the white man singing “Kill the Whites” in that video, and trained to the level of brigadier in Odessa by the Soviet Army).

In 1927, James Laguma became the first Black South African Communist to visit the Comintern in the Soviet Union. On his very next visit, he took with him Josiah Gumede, the president of the African National Congress (ANC), which is now the government in South Africa. South Africa, while having a parliament, is de facto governed outside parliament by the “Tri-partite Alliance” of the ANC, the Communist Party, and the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU-read “Black unions”). The Communist Party does not contest elections, it just festers in the middle of the ANC, providing its Brains Trust. Due to the massive majority of the ANC in parliament, they make all their decisions outside parliament and simply take them to parliament for rubber-stamping.

■ This will become your problem, Dear America.

There is no real Democracy in South Africa, but its utterly irrelevant parliament (see above) makes excellent YouTube entertainment. Of course a few deluded whites cling to its benches in the rather naive belief that they are doing something useful beyond filling YouTube channels with the joke of the day. It is time they walked out of that place to discredit it. Their presence makes them complicit in its excesses. I do not understand why they feel welcome in Parliament if the people they represent no longer feel welcome in South Africa. This scene should tell the reader everything.

When one adds to the above the claim that none of the land obtained by the government from white farmers has been transferred by title to black farmers since 2009, then it becomes quite clear that what the world is looking at is straight-out nationalization of property. That government already owns a massive portion of the country. In this respect, a black South African farmer recently sued the ANC government for the title to his land. Furthermore, Black non-profit organizations are admitting that 90% of land given to Black people is going to wrack and ruin. How is this place going to feed 50 million people given the marginal nature of its major grain-growing areas? What will happen when Abraham van Wyk above gives up and leaves or is driven off his farm?

This will become YOUR PROBLEM, dear America. You are warned.

■ The truth cannot be hidden anymore

When a locally focused US news medium, such as Tri-State Livestock News , based out of Belle Fourche in South Dakota, reports with specifics on the horror in South Africa, then we have all moved past the point where folks can claim ignorance because they did not see it on CNN or CBS. And matters have already moved far beyond the point of the report in this link. I’ve never been to Belle Fourche, but I have been through nearby Spearfish. I can tell you the South Dakota folks can tell right from wrong and have a handshake that means something.

■ a window on the future of the United States

South Africa has been the Canary in the Coal Mine of the West for a long time. In the 20th century, it was to Africa what the USA was to the wider world. Just as people tried to get into the USA by any means, just so Black people braved man-eating lions to get into apartheid South Africa while their own governments attacked South Africa night and day. You were told the whites were racist pigs and that South African Black people could fundamentally do no wrong, even when Mandela’s men bombed the apartment complex where my mother lived in the early 1980s killing white women and children (below).

This was done to the “sound of violins played” by the formal US media, then the only source of news. In the 1980s, while South Africa was run by Western people, Robert Mugabe to the North remained well-behaved. The moment those Civilized men lost control of their country under Western pressure, Mugabe showed his true colors. But the West lost interest, and ran at the first mention of the word “racist”. The “Biblical Pontius Pilate”, in the form of Britain, looked on in silence, having washed its hands, frozen in terror at the possibility of being called “racist”.

Mugabe’s world has now arrived in South Africa. The world can now see what happens under such an onslaught to those who know how to efficiently and effectively run advanced economies, sophisticated industries, advanced financial institutions, high-tech establishments, and complex networked infrastructure, such as water and electricity supplies and communications, not to mention sewage systems. The country’s water infrastructure is collapsing, electricity blackouts (below) roll like Biblical Egyptian Plagues over the country, Crime is completely out of hand, raw sewage is spilling into the Vaal River, and white people live all day in fear of their lives. And all this happens to the never-ending violin music from the Mainstream Media, still patting themselves on the back for having lied apartheid out of existence some 29 years ago. They can’t get suitably over themselves to see the truth right now. Perhaps a CNN reporter has to have the dead and broken body of a tortured white farmer draped over his shoulders to notice…and then I still doubt that they would report. They’ll say he “fell”. As the Communist professor once told me to my face,

You should just die.

■ Can a Black skin save one from this Blight?

A few weeks ago a Black landowner in South Africa discovered that his farm had been invaded by what he took to be squatters. When he went to investigate, someone had put up a corrugated iron shack from which that person was selling portions of the man’s land at around $45 a piece. They chased away the owner, but on another approach he was offered a 20 by 20 yard piece of his own land for free. A friend of his, in a stroke of ironic genius, suggested he seek the help of Afriforum, the White Afrikaner Civil Rights organization. Afriforum took the case, got a court order, and then, to physically remove the invading squatters, they secured the help of a private security operation called the Red Ants. The Police had refused to do anything. The Black landowner, Dr. Motodi Maserumule (below), was lucky. The father in the family of white asylum seekers claims he was assaulted by the Police when he went to ask their help. I am inclined to believe him, based on several other documented events of that nature.

■ A Race to the Bottom

What we are witnessing, is a country, once civilized, where the basic Rule of Law is breaking down, because the basic Civilization underpinning it is collapsing. The Police are themselves the source of a considerable portion of the crime in the country. This is the culture created by Mandela’s Party, the ANC. I confidently predict that these ANC creatures will eventually die at the hand of their own. This is a race to the bottom. The question is, which will happen first, (1) destruction of the country and Southern Africa with it, or (2) destruction of the support base of the ANC? And who will survive it all? It is purely a matter of time before someone “loses it”, and resorts to violence. The fuse is lit and burning…and if that “bomb”goes off, it is going to take at least six independent countries, Lesotho, Swaziland, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Mocambique, with it and severely affect a whole lot more.

■ Obama’s America on Steroids – Petri Dish of all Woes

South Africa is essentially Barack Obama’s America on steroids. After all, he, Obama (below), was very open about how inspired he was by South Africa. He even appointed Mandela’s ghostwriter to his administration. The country is like a giant Petri dish in which the woes afflicting the Western World are nurtured and can grow and metastasize rapidly. Those woes may therefore be studied in detail, like a bug under a microscope. It will show you what happens when civilized men lose control of their country. Rather than wait for a Socialist government in the United States, which will steal hundreds of thousands of dollars from you and kill your culture and future, and defraud you of your heritage, you can spend $1500 now and go and see NON-Tourist South Africa.

Spend a week on a farm with a family there, or with someone in a small town in the east of the country. It is bound to cure you of all your delusions. It will, in particular, cure you of any Liberal White Guilt psychosis that seems to afflict the USA to such a degree that it sometimes cannot think straight enough to save its own life.

I was recently told by an American host that I was originally perceived as possibly alarmist, but that I am now seen as a sage. My predictions were correct, not because I am clairvoyant or brilliantly intelligent, but because I come from South Africa, where vicious reality is IN YOUR FACE, morning, noon and night. One does not need much intelligence or clairvoyance to know what’s going to happen.

■ My Basic Faith in Americans

All my life I have had unshakable faith in the basic good judgment of Americans and the pre-amble to the Declaration of Independence. I have been criticized for that, but where else can one find 330 million people devoted to hard work and progress with a fundamental ability to tell wrong from right? All they need, is a good dose of reality to shake the delusions out of their woodwork, and that costs around $1500. Go take a look at the Second America, being South Africa, and then change the direction of your country. The alternative is that you just sit there and do nothing until what happened to us happens to you. Your future is yours to grab with both hands. And in the process, I beg you spare a thought for and stretch out a hand to your nearest cousins on Earth, the South Africans, who share your history. To quote from the introductory paragraph of an address on 6 June 1966 in Cape Town, South Africa, by none other than the late Bobby Kennedy (below):

“I come here this evening because of my deep interest and affection for

a land settled by the Dutch in the mid-seventeenth century,

then taken over by the British,

and at last independent; […]

a land which defined itself on a hostile frontier;

a land which has tamed rich natural resources through the energetic application of modern technology […]

I refer, of course, to the United States of America.”

He used those words knowing they applied verbatim to both countries. After all, the boss of the famous Admiral Nelson called South Africa “The Second America”, and my own 100% South African wife’s ancestor was the first American immigrant to South Africa in 1666. Unfortunately, Kennedy went on to draw other utterly misplaced and incriminating parallels that did not apply; someone had got the homework wrong on the rest.

■ The Hour of Our Need is arrived

Ever since 1914 we have reported for duty in the Hour of Need of the West. We were There. In WWI, when the Allies needed help, my South African family was there. We flew the airplanes and did the dying. My wife’s family lost members during  the Battle of the Somme in the Battle of Delville Wood. Jan Smuts, an Afrikaner kid like myself helped Britain and insisted on the creation of the world’s first independent Air Force, the Royal Air Force.

In WWII, when the Allies needed help, we were there. My father-in-law (left) flew his Spitfire to protect the US Ground Troops in Italy. He was shot down twice for his pains. My youngest great-uncle was a dispatch rider in Italy, after helping to defeat Rommel. An Afrikaner kid like myself, by the name of Sailor Malan, was one of Britain’s most famous air aces in the Battle of Britain. Scale models of Malan are still on the market today! It was even formally suggested that the Afrikaner Jan Smuts should take the place of Winston Churchill as British Prime Minister if the latter were to die during WWII.

When the call went out for help with the terrible Warsaw Airlift, we were there. We did the dying, flying US-built B-24 Liberator heavy bombers (below) out of Italy. Two South African squadrons served on those missions, but a number of the British Royal Air Force squadrons were also manned by South Africans who ended up simply being called “British”. They were “kids” with my background. And they flew into hell at 500 feet off the ground. 248 of them did not return. More can be read HERE. The Poles erected a memorial to them.

When the US asked for help in Korea, our veteran WWII pilots were there and flew as part of the US Air Force contingent, first in P-51 Mustangs and later in F-86 Sabres (below). Policy Order No.13 of the 18th USAF Fighter-Bomber Wing required that the first few bars of the South African anthem be played before the US anthem was played; this “In Memory of our Gallant South African Comrades”.

Thirty-four South African Flying Cheetahs gave their lives alongside their American buddies, mostly in P51 Mustangs. These were men just like my father-in-law above. With this background, I make the following appeal to all decent and honourable Americans, and those in the Rest of the West who have a sense of honour:

Now the Hour of Our Need is arrived and we beg you hear the Cry of our People.

Interview on “Connecting the Dots”


, , , ,

— On 26 February 2019 Alex Newman (left), freelance writer for, among others, the New American Magazine, joined me (right) on the “Connecting the Dots” show of Dan Happel (centre). The full two hour session may be heard HERE. Dan’s title for the show was “What Next? Now that the lunatics are running the asylum“, referring to the United States House of Representatives after last year’s Mid-term election and the advent in US Congress of a slew of Extreme Left Wing people. I refuse to call them “Liberals” anymore – they are simply not worthy of the term. Some are more reminiscent of Stalin than any form of Liberalism. And even the Russians moved his statue to the Fallen Monuments Park. Some of these new folks are so young that Obama was president when they got their brains. They’ve already taken to speaking utter drivel and demonstrating their inability at maths and resentment of truth and reality, which seems to come with being a Leftist these days. The old Communists could do Maths; I suspect they just refused to believe the answer. It would seem the American version of the same has serious trouble with calculators.

Bet you if one asks them who the Cold War was against, they’d say “Donald Trump”.

Forgive my sense of humour, but I’m going to hold onto it.

US Genocide Prevention in South Africa?


, , , ,

US Congress does something Useful

—The United States Congress has passed the Elie Wiesel Genocide Prevention Act. While I tend not to get excited about Acts passed by a body as utterly ineffectual and regularly misled as the US Congress, this Act does pique my interest. The Act is named for Holocaust survivor and 1986 Nobel Peace Prize Winner Elie Wiesel (above). It states that the policy of the United States shall be to– (author’s emphases)

(1) regard the prevention of atrocities as in its national interest;

(2) work with partners and allies, including to build their capacity, and enhance the capacity of the United States, to identify, prevent, and respond to the causes of atrocities, including insecurity, mass displacement, violent conflict, and other conditions that may lead to such atrocities; and

(3) pursue a United States Government-wide strategy to identify, prevent, and respond to the risk of atrocities by–

(A) strengthening the diplomatic, risk analysis and monitoring, strategic planning, early warning, and response capacities of the Government;

(B) improving the use of foreign assistance to respond early, effectively, and urgently in order to address the causes of atrocities;

(C) strengthening diplomatic response and the effective use of foreign assistance to support appropriate transitional justice measures, including criminal accountability, for past atrocities;

(D) supporting and strengthening local civil society, including human rights defenders and others working to help prevent and respond to atrocities;

(E) promoting financial transparency and enhancing anti-corruption initiatives as part of addressing causes of conditions that may lead to atrocities; and

(F) employing a variety of unilateral, bilateral, and multilateral means to prevent and respond to atrocities by–

(i) placing a high priority on timely, preventive diplomatic efforts; and
(ii) exercising leadership in promoting international efforts to prevent atrocities.

The Act requires the President of the United States to provide the Committee on Foreign Affairs (and two other committees) with regular reports regarding current efforts to prevent and respond to atrocities, a global assessment of ongoing atrocities,  countries and regions at risk of atrocities, including a description of specific risk factors, at-risk groups, and likely scenarios in which atrocities would occur.

The Rule of Construction of the Act states that nothing in the Act shall be construed as authorizing the use of military force.

Dear President Trump

Sir, may I suggest you immediately set your Central Intelligence Agency to work on reporting on (1) the massive Institutionalised Corruption in South Africa, (2) the associated State Capture, and the (3) terrible Threat of Genocide to the white people in that country due to the perpetrators of the aforementioned corruption and state capture blaming them and setting upon those 4.5 Million White people the 45 Million Black people of the country. I should also like to point out that the ANC government’s efforts at legalizing the stealing of the property of White people is calculated to induce violence against the White minority. In this respect, see point (E) of the Act above.


The Mfecane: Twenty years of Hell on Earth


, , ,

—Today I make available the next chapter in my series titled Who stole the Land? This latest Chapter may be read HERE. I believe it is of paramount importance for all South Africans, and those elsewhere with a sense of justice, to make themselves familiar with the events in this chapter. I say this, because this history completely demolishes the very foundation of the ANC government’s efforts to destroy the Brown and White people of the country.

It is dedicated to the most terrible twenty years in the History of Southern Africa outside the Cape Colony. It all started with the accession of Shaka to the throne of the rather insignificant Zulu nation, one of many in the constellation of Nguni people along the east coast of what is now South Africa. The consequences would be one of the most horrific periods in the history of Mankind anywhere on Earth. One has to be devoid of a heart not to have sympathy for the people affected by this horror.

It has taken a long time to put together for two reasons:

Firstly, it required considerable research and digging to find all the texts. Along with that, I have done my very best to find online accessible versions of the texts I quote in evidence. There is no use to me suggesting to an Internet audience that I have the evidence, if I cannot put it in front of their eyes. I rely on British and French missionaries for almost all the first hand evidence. Neither were well-disposed toward the White population of the region.

Secondly, there is a growing effort, supported by the present government of South Africa, to pretend the events in this chapter never even happened. The truth does not sit well with its agenda. I felt it only correct to put the hard, horrible, inhuman evidence directly where people capable of independent thought can see it for themselves.

The overall result of the events in this chapter was the effective depopulation of much of the interior of  the present South Africa north of the Orange River by 1836. Only the furthest northeastern Black people in the country were relatively unaffected by the events. The effects of the Mfecane were felt almost to the equator and defined the populations of what are now the independent countries of Botswana and Lesotho.

The parallels between the histories of USA and South Africa are quite striking. However, this chapter will hopefully make it clear to Americans why South Africa’s history differs profoundly from theirs when it comes to the matter of relations between Whites and Blacks. It also provides historic background to the comments made by President Trump regarding farm killings in South Africa.

Child of the Covenant


, ,

As a child it used to drive me nuts. My birthday was a perpetual Sunday and all the bioscopes (movie houses) were closed. There was no TV or Internet back then in 1950s  and 1960s South Africa.

The Nightmare Background

I was a little older when I started learning the meaning of all this. In truth, it was only while writing the book AmaBhulu some years ago that the true terror and scope of the challenge that gave rise to the Covenant became clear to me. It was only then that the significance of being a Geloftebaba, a Child of the Covenant, struck me.

On 9 December 1838, some 400 men of the old Afrikaner Voortekkers (Eng: those trekkers who lead the way) first made a Covenant with God that, if He should give them Victory over the treacherous Zulu king Dingane, they would erect a Church in his name and forevermore treat the day of the victory as a Sunday.

Prior to this, these men had crossed the largely uninhabited Free State prairie strewn with bleached human skeletons. Then they had clashed with Mzilikazi of the Matabele, who lived far to the northwest, because they had inadvertently ridden into his no-man’s-land. They had defeated him and driven him to what is now Zimbabwe. They had then crossed the Drakensberg and signed a treaty with King Dingane of the Zulu. He had offered them land to the south of his heartland if they would recover his stolen cattle from Sekonyela of what used to be the frightening Mantatee Horde, but who were now again known by their original name, the Ba’Tlokwa. They retrieved the cattle, but after the deal was signed, as they were preparing to leave, the king had set his army upon them and slaughtered the entire Trekker contingent of 100 men. Dingane had them impaled. Then he had sent his army to kill the women and children. It had been a terrible massacre of 400 souls (above) in February 1838.

The Trekkers had survived this, as well as two more pitched engagements. The British contingent from Port Natal (Durban) had also tried to take down Dingane, but were badly beaten and physically driven into the sea at Durban (onto the brig Comet, from which they had to sit and watch helplessly as the Zulu trashed their little settlement).

It was now 10 months later, the Trekkers had studied their enemy, knew his tactics, and had been reinforced with more men. They numbered some 407. They also had a new leader in Andries Pretorius, who had arrived with a tiny little homemade cannon. One hundred Zulus, armed with guns, had joined them [YES!!! – people forget that bit]. Between three and five Englishmen, including Alexander Biggar, had joined them – [YES!!! people forget that bit also]. The battle was eventually to happen on 16 December 1838, my perpetual birthday. But the religious runup to the event started earlier.

The Covenant

It was likely on 9 December 1838 that the Covenant service was first conducted. Sarel Celliers has it as the 7th of December and Jan Bantjes as the 10th. Jan Bantjes clearly describes events of a Sunday. These simple farmers were much more likely to have the day of the week correct than the calendar date. The Sunday in that week was in fact the 9th of December 1838. The official scribe of this force was Jan Bantjes, and it is to him that I turn for his exquisitely detailed description of the event. (John Bird’s, Annals of Natal Vol.1, (1888), p.445):

On Sunday morning, before divine service commenced the, chief commandant called together all those who were to perform that service, and requested them to propose to the congregation “that they should all fervently in spirit and in truth, pray to God for His relief and assistance in their struggle with the enemy: that he wanted to make a vow to God Almighty, if they were all willing, that should the Lord be pleased to grant us the victory, we would raise a house to the memory of His great name wherever it might please Him,” and that they should also supplicate the aid and assistance of God to enable them to fulfil their vow; and that we would note the day of the victory in a book, to make it known even to our latest posterity, in order that it might be celebrated to the honour of God.

He [Sarel Celliers] commenced by singing from Psalm xxxviii, verses 12-16, then delivered a prayer and preached about the twenty four first verses of the Book of Judges; and thereafter delivered the prayer in which the before-mentioned vow to God was made, with a fervent supplication for the Lord’s aid and assistance in the fulfilment thereof. The 12th and 21st verses of the said xxxviii Psalm were again sung, and the service was concluded with singing the cxxxiv Psalm. In the afternoon the congregations assembled again and several appropriate verses were sung. Mr Celliers again made a speech, and delivered prayers solemnly; and in the same manner the evening was also spent.

I next give the floor to Sarel Celliers (below), the man who actually conducted the services, to tell us about it many years later in 1870, when his memory as a 69 year-old man may have been fading a little (John Bird’s, Annals of Natal Vol.1, (1888), pp.244-252):

I took my place on a gun carriage. The 407 men of the force were assembled round me. I made the promise in a simple manner as solemnly as the Lord enabled me to do. As nearly as I can remember, my words were these:

“My brethren and fellow countrymen, at this moment we stand before the holy God of heaven and earth, to make a promise, if He will be with us, and protect us, and deliver the enemy into our hands so that we may triumph over him, that we shall observe the day and the date as an anniversary in each year, and a day of Thanksgiving like the Sabbath, in His honour; and that we shall enjoin our children that they must take part with us in this, for a remembrance even for our posterity; and if anyone sees a difficulty in this, let him retire from the place. For the honour of His name will be joyfully exalted, and to Him the fame and the honour of the victory must be given.”

I said, further, that we must join in prayer to be raised up to the throne of His grace; and so forth. And I raised my hands towards the heavens in the name of us all. Moreover, we confirmed this in our prayers each evening, as well as on the next Sabbath. Every evening, at three places, there was an evening service.

The Lord was with us.

As to what I have written, He who knows all things, knows that I have not wittingly written an untruth.

By God’s enduring mercy and grace, 69 years old.

The Covenant was presented as follows in the Zuid-Afrikaan newspaper in 1839, back in the Cape Colony:

Here we stand before the holy God of heaven and earth, to make a vow to Him that, if He will protect us and give our enemy into our hand, we shall keep this day and date every year as a day of thanksgiving like a sabbath, and that we shall erect a house to His honour wherever it should please Him, and that we also will tell our children that they should share in that with us in memory for future generations. For the honour of His name will be glorified by giving Him the fame and honour for the victory.

The Battle of the Ncome River : Blood River

The Battle of Blood River, fought from daybreak on 16 December 1838, exactly 180 years ago today, against 10,000-15,000 very brave battle hardened Zulu soldiers using well-tried and very succesful tactics, was an overwhelming victory for the Trekkers; their first against the mighty Zulu Army. That Zulu Army, employing basically the same tactics and assegaais (spears), completely annihilated a vastly larger and vastly better equipped British Army 41 years later in 1879. On 16 December 1838 the 400 men in their wagon circle (memorial below), with their faith in their Covenant, suffered three flesh wounds, while more than 3,000 Zulu soldiers lay dead. The Ncome River ran red with blood – hence its future name: Blood River. The worst wound was that of Trekker leader Andires Pretorius, who was stabbed through the hand while trying to get a Zulu warrior to take a letter to the Zulu King. The Zulu myth of Invincibility lay shattered. That Battle and its outcome has been seen for 180 years as one of the prime examples in World History of Divine Intervention, and that is true not only in South Africa. The dramatic blow-by-blow detail of the battle may be read in the book AmaBhulu.

The Covenant Today

The Afrikaners of South Africa, of all extractions, languages and skin colours again face a terrible challenge. In these troubled times we might well remember the vow our forefathers took. It is also against the background that I place here the link to the music video, Die Gelofte (The Vow – image below). May it inspire a few souls in South Africa and abroad to stand up and do what is right, before it is too late.

Today I become a pensioner in Canada and I might as well grow up and understand the significance of this day…. and it has nothing whatsoever to do with it being my birthday. It has everything to do with my family and people facing Ethnic Cleansing in the country of their great-great-great-great-great-grandfathers. My one great prayer on this day, is that President Trump will intervene and put pressure on the racist ANC Government of South Africa to stop its brazenly racist policies and its daily threats against the White people of that beautiful country.

Along with it, goes the music video of Die Land behoort aan jou (The Land belongs to you), which represents a musical oath by the Afrikaner people of South Africa to the next generation that they shall, as a people, hold onto the land of their forefathers.
