Note: Afrikaner=Dutch South African
In 1994, after decades of unrest by Black nationalists, South African Apartheid breathed its last breaths as the first multi-racial elections were held. The move was held as a great victory for democracy, civil rights, and progressivism. The years to come were envisioned as prosperous with the “great rainbow state” emerging into reality. The African National Congress, the leading anti-apartheid organization soon took control of the government.
Of course the prosperous rainbow nation would not come about as the ruling ANC party had communist ties and was funded by the Soviet Union. They never intended to have a rainbow nation and only ever sought to cleanse South Africa of the Capitalist White Christians. From Dr. Mario Oriani Ambrosini’s memoirs: “In his brutal honesty, [Cyril] Ramaphosa told me of the ANC’s 25 year strategy to deal with the whites: it would be like boiling a frog alive, which is done by raising the temperature very slowly. Being cold-blooded, the frog does not notice the slow temperature increase, but if the temperature is raised suddenly, the frog will jump out of the water. He meant that the black majority would pass laws transferring wealth, land, and economic power from white to black slowly and incrementally, until the whites lost all they had gained in South Africa, but without taking too much from them at any given time to cause them to rebel or fight.”
This seems to be the case for South Africa. Of the 6,000,000 White Afrikaners that lived in South Africa just before Apartheid ended in the early 90’s, it’s estimated that 800,000 have left the country. Many more have been subject to squatter camps and countless murders as Black troublemakers routinely kill entire families of farmers and poor Whites. The situation even earned South Africa a place in the Genocide Watch section of Genocidewatch.org with a categorization of 6 and later 5, which under the stages the site has listed are polarization and preparation. The situation has gotten so extreme that experts such as Jan Cronje, a South Africa historian, have predicted that within 30 years, South Africa will be devoid of Whites.
“But what has caused this categorization? You ask.
The polarization can be seen by Cyril Ramphosa’s African National Congress and even more so by the Economic Freedom Fighters, headed by Julius Malema. Malema has gone on record to say the infamous quote of “We are not calling for the slaughtering of White people, at least for now.” More polarization can be seen from Malema when he sang a Black nationalist song, “Shoot the Boer”, (former ANC president Jacob Zuma also did this) Boer being a White South African farmer. Similar rhetoric has been used in countless parliament meetings by various parties, especially the ANC, EFF, and SACP(South African Communist Party).
Additionally, South African affirmative action laws have now barred many Whites from getting jobs and has laid off many more, reducing thousands to living in squatter camps, which are basically White ghettos. Many businesses have been forced to adhere to the country’s racial demographics, meaning that about 8.9% of their workers must be Whites, 8.9% Coloreds(mixed), 2.5% Asian, and 80% Black. As you can imagine, this means that many educated Whites have been laid off in favor of uneducated and unqualified Blacks just to adhere to these laws.

But of course the racial demographics are not the same everywhere. Cape Town is 32% White for example. This has reduced almost half a million Whites to second class citizens. In these squatter camps they are often abused by neighboring Blacks, sometimes even killed. The state of White farmers is even worse.
The murder rate for South Africa is 34.1 per 100,000. Compare that to America’s 4.9 per 100,000. That’s just the national figure too, in the West Cape it is 51.7 per 100,000, an astounding number. The White farmer murder rate, however, is estimated to be 4 times that number, perhaps even larger as the South African government refuses to keep data on the subject and also routinely ignores many crimes either because there’s too many of them or because they don’t care.
These farm attacks are dismissed as robberies gone bad by the government but this is not the case to any sane and honest person. When babies are raped, entire families murdered, and in one instance even crucified, and hardly any property stolen, it is obvious the intention of the attackers was not to simply rob, it was to murder and torture the poor farmers unfortunate enough to meet such a fate.
The story of Amaro Viana and his family comes to mind, happening only a few years ago. Amaro’s father, Tony Viana was severely beaten and shot along with his wife after she was raped. Amaro, then 12, was then boiled alive in a bathtub of scolding hot water. Not even the family dog escaped a brutal death, having its stomach split open. Click Here to see that story.
Another instance saw a farmer, Johan Strydom, who was ruthlessly beaten and tied by his left ankle to his truck and dragged until he died of a burst liver and cracked skull. There’s countless more instances of savage and barbaric farm murders, too many to list
To make things worse for White farmers, land expropriation is now official state policy (those communist ties are showing) and the Afrikaner farmers are labelled as simple “visitors” and are to have their land stolen and given to incompetent Black “farmers”, many of who hardly know modern farming techniques and have previously ruined perfectly good land due to that fact. This outright ignores the fact that White have been in South Africa since the 1600’s and the dominant Black Bantu majority migrated there less than 200 years earlier. Much of the land that Whites inhabit today was acquired either because it was uninhabited, through negotiation, or conquest so it is extremely hard to defend a Bantu African extermination or displacement of Whites

Now some Afrikaners are even preparing for civil war. The organization named “Suidlanders” has even organized a plan for such an occurrence, stocking supplies and planning accordingly. They state that the current state of affairs will bring about a civil war in South Africa, one where Whites will be targeted. Some Afrikaners are even threatening to rebel themselves if their land is taken without compensation, which is exactly what is beginning to happen.
What we can do as Southerners is offer our arms to the Afrikaners, the true refugees of Africa, not the impoverished but perfectly safe Black and Arab migrants that flee the continent every day. We can push our government to acknowledge the atrocities being committed and advocate for asylum for Afrikaners, though there are plenty that would fight and die for their land, just like many of us would in such a situation.
Only time will tell if South Africa will be White free in 30 years. Only time can tell whether the Afrikaners will be able to hold on to and defend the land their ancestors died for. What is for certain is that the situation is extremely dire and the South African government does not care, in fact it celebrates the abuse, neglect, and destruction of the Afrikaner people.
