Brutal murder of yet another white man in SA prison

The old SA is frequently accused of "abhorrent human rights abuse", but to this day no one could come up with any evidence to the effect, yet we can provide literally thousands of cases orchestrated and executed by the ANC against blacks since their founding some 100 years ago.

According to the ANC Regime's own Human Rights Commission (HRC), 73 people died while in Police detention during the period 1963 to 1990, which equates to 2.6 people annually during the "Apartheid" years.
According to the ANC Regime's own Independent Complaints Directorate (IDC), 219 people died in police custody for the period 1997 to 1998 alone.
By the time we received their results for the period 2008 to 2009 a total of 912 people had died while in SA Police custody.

Yet the old SA police were accused of being brutal and inhumane, while no one has ever said a single word about what has been happening since the ANC took control of South Africa?

For more on this and other so-called Apartheid atrocities please read: Apartheid an inhumane system?

In the meantime news24 reports on the brutal murder of yet another white man in prison : (with our own Formatting to highlight certain aspects)

Witness saw attack on man in police cell
2012-04-25 11:00

Cape Town - A witness has told how he heard a man calling for help shortly before he died following an assault in the Durbanville police cells.

Eben Meyer, 47, apparently pulled on the cell bars in an attempt to get the attention of police officers on duty, Die Burger reported.

His blood-covered body was found in the early hours of Saturday morning in the cell that he was sharing with eight other men.

Meyer had been arrested at about 01:00 for public drunkenness. He had apparently gone drinking after a fight with his fiancée.

Another man from Durbanville, who asked to remain anonymous, said he had also been locked up in the police cells on Saturday evening. 

He was put in a cell next to Meyer’s. He said the men were already assaulting Meyer when he arrived.

He saw them kicking and hitting Meyer.

Aggressive

The witness said, however, that Meyer had been aggressive following his arrival, swearing and demanding cigarettes, and hitting two other men. He said Meyer had been looking for trouble.

“It’s sad that he died, but he needed a hiding.”

He said it felt like the assault on Meyer had taken several hours and that he was surprised that the police officials in the charge office nearby did not come to Meyer’s aid.

The two accused, Daniel Dyosi, 40, and Sipho Mhlanga, 29, were charged with Meyer’s murder. They appeared in the Bellville Magistrate's Court on Monday, where their case was postponed to May 10 for a formal bail application.

SANRAL - From an Australian Newspaper on South Africa E-Tolls

"The deal between Sanral and Kapsch of Austria, the e-tolling operating company is not with the corporate entity, but with Kapsch Sweden.

Kapsch Sweden used to be SAAB Aerospace, a 50% shareholder in a company called SANIP. British Aerospace held the other 50%. SANIP is alleged to be the payment vehicle used by SAAB and BAE to pay the alleged bribes of around R100Million in the Arms Deal saga to ensure that the Gripen fighter was chosen.

The names Hlongwane, Modise, ANC, Zuma, Shaik figure prominently in the list of alleged recipients.

So why Kapsch Sweden, not the corporate entity? I leave it to your imagination.

How much? According to the corporate structure used to implement e-tolling in SA, about 80c of each rand of profit can be repatriated to Austria via Sweden. Gauteng alone expects to generate about R350Million a month in toll fees.

Assuming a very conservative 10% profit available to be repatriated, that means about R28Million a month to go overseas"

Fighting White Genocide - BUGS


http://www.whitakeronline.org/blog/topic/mini-mantras-ii/

MINI MANTRAS II – TABLE OF CONTENTS

SECTION-A: Immigration and Assimilation
SECTION-B: Race Problem
SECTION-C: Attack Anti-Whites
SECTION-D: History

——————————————————————————————–

IMMIGRATION AND ASSIMILATION (Section-A)

1) “Genocide involves the attempt to achieve the disappearance of a group by whatever means. It does not have to be violent, it could be a combination of policies that would lead to a certain group dying out.”
Malcolm Fraser (Prime Minister of Australia 1975-1983)
Attempting to ‘blend’ White people, out of existence in EVERY White country at the same time is Genocide.
Nobody is doing this to ANY Asian country, or ANY Black country.
‘Anti-racism’ is a codeword for Anti-White

2) Alright let’s pretend that thousands of American Whites haven’t been murdered in racially motivated attacks in America and let’s pretend that the Boers in South Africa are not on genocide watch because of their slaughter. Even if the only method of genocide being used was massive non-White immigration into ALL White countries and ONLY into White countries and forced integration and assimilation, this would still lead to the ELIMINATION of a unique human GENOtype, a GENOcide.

3) Mick Dodson, an Aboriginal leader who wrote the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission report “Bringing Them Home” along with Sir Ronald Wilson, has been quoted as saying: “assimilation is genocide”.
Is Mick Dodson a “racist”, or does he get a pass from you anti-whites because he`s a non-White?
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

4) “I don’t support any genocide”
Right, you just support the intentional demographic elimination of White children on a global scale and call it “Celebrating Diversity”. Article II: In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, RACIAL or religious group.
Criminals always lie about their actions to avoid punishment for their crimes.
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

5) Section C of the 1948 United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide:
( c ) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
Section C applies to what anti-whites are doing to my race:
Flooding our countries with non-whites, force integrating our communities, encouraging us to blend ourselves out of existence and attacking anyone who opposes these things are imposing conditions of life calculated to bring about the physical destruction of my race. It’s genocide.

6) Former Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser is quoted as saying “Genocide does not have to be violent”. Aboriginal leader Mick Dodson along w/ Sir Donald Wilson have said “assimilation is Genocide”.
Genocide-by-assimilation, the blending out of an identifiable group – a race; annihilation by “assimilation”. This is happening to my people, White People, in White countries and ONLY White countries.
“anti-racists” support this FORCED diversity. Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

7) If I hated a race, I might campaign to flood all of their countries with millions of people that are not their race, and tell everyone to “mix in”, until no people of that kind were left. If anyone objected, I would scream R-word! at them and get them fired from their jobs.
If I hated a certain race, I might do that. But I am not doing that. Anti-whites are doing it to White people in all White countries and only White countries.
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

8) “We’re not encouraging people to have sex with someone from another ethnicity”
You lie anti-White.
Sarkozy said that “not to intermarry racially is bad for the survival of the country” why is that “OK” and not “racist” but a White person saying they believe in white racial survival is an “evil racist”?
You anti-Whites are allowed to promote interracial marriage in media, schools and entertainment. Nowhere are White people allowed to promote same race marriage.
Anti-White.

9) Anti-Whites like to say Diversity is “freedom” for non-Whites to enter White living space and “mix in” with whomever they wish.
However White people are not allowed to refuse this “freedom”, so it is your diversity we are FORCED to accept.

10) What you don’t realize is that White people have not consented to having their borders opened to non-White immigration…period. This is something that has been FORCED down the throats of White people and ONLY White people. We have been systematically targeted for a particular form of genocide, in this case a force-assimilation. White people have not consented to being assimilated out of existence, that’s what makes this a genocide.
Anti-racist is a codeword for ANTI-WHITE.

11) There are laws to enforce integration in White nations, by gunpoint if needed. Genocide is genocide, whether accomplished by bullets ,mustard gas, or mass immigration and social engineering.

12) If diversity isn’t forced, why are ‘Whites only’ signs outlawed?
If diversity isn’t forced, why is there affirmative action & racial employment quotas?
If diversity isn’t forced, why aren’t White People allowed to vote to stop mass non-White immigration into White countries & only White countries?
If diversity isn’t forced, why is integration of ALL & ONLY White communities forced?
If diversity isn’t forced, then you describe the diversity we are forced to accept?
Anti-racist = anti-White

13) “It’s just freedom of association”
Google images of White girls being marched into schools with Africans at bayonet point, google a list of the FORCED integration of schools; anti-Whites forcing non-White immigration into every White country, making it illegal to have a White town or business, force integrating Marin country, CA. Mandating that every White business hire a minimum number of non-Whites. Constantly implementing “diversity” policies to get more non-Whites into every White country, school, business and organization etc…

14) If the different varieties of white-tailed deer that evolved in the environmentally different valleys of the Great Smoky Mountains were removed from their separate valleys and mixed together in a single area, then in a few generations there would be only one blended “variety” of white-tailed deer.
In the same way, flooding all White countries with non-Whites and legally forcing Whites to mix with them will blend Whites out of existence.
But all the liberals AND “conservatives” who share your views scream the R-word at anyone who opposes this White Genocide!
You say you are anti-racists, but what you are is anti-White!
Anti-racist is just a code word for anti-White!

15) You are saying the few thousands of White people, working in non-White countries like China or Japan, is anywhere near equivalent, to the unending millions of non-Whites being brought into all White countries every year, that are allowed to vote and take over the place, along with the forced integration laws and endless race mixing propaganda in all White countries.??? lol Are you pulling my leg?
Come on just admit it. You are anti-White and you want White GeNOcide.

16) Questions for anti-Whites:
Do you agree that If Saddam Hussein had flooded the Kurdish villages with non-Kurds and ordered the Kurds to “assimilate” and “celebrate this diversity” and thereby demographically wiping out the Kurds as an ethnic group he WOULD have been GUILTY of committing an intentional act of genocide?
Isn`t that what you anti-Whites are doing to White people by flooding our communities with non-Whites and telling us we have to “assimilate” and “celebrate diversity”?

17) Why do you want to deny people the right to their own homelands? Why is this assimilation and race-mixing in ALL White countries and ONLY White countries so important to you? Why do you anti-Whites never talk about flooding Africa with millions of non-Blacks and assimilating them into the Black population to “end hate”, or to “make it more diverse”, or to “fix the economy”, or to “have a perfect harmony”?

18) Answer our questions anti-Whites:
We have explained how forcing mass immigration, “assimilation”, 24/­7 race-mixing and other anti-white propaganda on EVERY White country and ONLY in White countries will eliminate White Children globally and is therefore a deliberate program of geNOcide under international law.
Tell us why you claim this is not genocide?
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

19) In your opinion, are White countries permitted to say no to mass immigration and “assimilation” like all the non-White countries?

20) If die-versity and multiCULTuralism are so wonderful, why are we keeping for EVERY and ONLY White countries?

21) Poor justification for the genocide of whites. But I’ll give you a chance to redeem yourself, which Asian or African country would you like to see flooded with non-Asians or non-Africans and the natives forced to integrate, assimilate and produce children with the immigrants?

22) No one says that a Black country needs multiCULTuralism.
No one says that an Asian country needs multiCULTuralism.
Yet in ALL & ONLY White countries, anti-Whites posing as “anti-racists” demand those countries stop being White and become “multicultural”. This is genocide – the targeted destruction of a group.
MultiCULTuralism is a codeword for White genocide and anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

23) They say the final solution to the RACE problem is the third world pouring into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries and Whites “assimilating,” i.e., intermarrying, with all those non-whites.
But if I tell the obvious truth that this is genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.
They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white. Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

24) Less White people in any given country or town is a great thing and is cause for celebration. However only an evil monster would celebrate less non-White people in a country or town. Die-versity is a code word for White geNOcide and anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

25) I’m not sure what question you are asking here.
Mulattoes? Do they consider themselves White? Do White people consider them White? Are they a new race, only loyal to their own kind?
Obama is a Mulatto, yet is hailed as “America’s first Black President”. Obama’s loyalties are not with Whites. All of his actions on border protection, prove he does not care about White interests. Flooding a White country, with millions of people that are not their race, is GeNOcide according to UN Law.

26) The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.
Eastern Europe is Dirt Poor. Yet Eastern Europe is regularly asked when they will be ready for this immigration. Why is Eastern Europe supposed to be “ready for this immigration” and not Japan?
They are White.

27) If ALL and ONLY Black countries in 1965 opened their borders and let hundreds of millions of non-Blacks into their countries, and then 90 years later, Blacks are expected to be minorities in the countries that let non-Blacks in; that’s not done by accident. It’s obviously a plan to wipe out the Black race. AKA genocide.
This is what’s been done to my people, White people. It’s geNOcide.
Anti-Whites promote this White geNOcide.
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

28) People say there is this RACE problem and this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY White country and ONLY into White countries. They say the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY White country and ONLY White countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-Whites. It’s really just the final solution to the White problem. It’s genocide. They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White. Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

29) What if we set aside the assumption “anti-racists” are brainwashed and apply Occam’s Razor to what they are actually doing?
“Anti-racists” Demand all White countries and only White countries be flooded with millions of people that are not their race, until White people become a vanishing minority. If any White person objects to this genocide-by-assimilation, “anti-racists” call them a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.
They want White geNOcide.

30) China is predominately Chinese. Japan is predominantly Japanese. In 1965, the United States was 89% White. Nobody is insisting that there is a race problem in Japan or China requiring the problem to be solved by massive non-Chinese immigration into China and non-Japanese immigration into Japan. This occurs in White nations and ONLY White nations.
It IS geNOcide.
Anti-racism is just a code word for anti-White.

31) When it’s pointed out the 50,000 Europeans who’ve been murdered by non-Whites, allowed in Europe over the last four decades by anti-White policies they support, they tell us it’s just growing pains, and that the killings of our race will end once they’ve successfully blended us out of existence into a brown humanity.
Anti-racism is a codeword for anti-White.

32) No one says a country that is 100% Black needs more diversity.
No one says a country that is 100% Asian needs more diversity.
No one says a country that is 100% Oriental needs more diversity.
They are already 100% diverse.
All White countries and only White countries always need to be more diverse. White countries only stop needing to be more diverse when there are no White people left in them.
Diversity is a codeword for White geNOcide. Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

33) These riots look like a scene out of a third-world country, because White nations ARE turning into third word-countries through massive immigration and forced integration w/ these 3rd worlders. Whites are about 8-9% of the world’s population. Not only are we a minority in the world but we are poised to become minorities IN OUR OWN COUNTRIES within a few decades. So called “anti-racists” still say it’s Africa for the Africans, Asia for the Asians, and White Countries for everybody! Anti-racist is just a codeword for anti-White.

34) The most common technique used by anti-Whites to demoralize White people is to promote a racially brown future, BUT ONLY IN WHITE COUNTRIES. You haven’t told the Black people in Africa that they have to be blended out of existence; You haven’t told the Asian people that they have to be blended out of existence. It is ONLY White people that are targeted with this tactic and this agenda…It’s genocide…White Genocide
Now you do see why White people see you as a vicious Anti-White?

35) The words “immigration”, “tolerance” and “assimilation” are being used to promote a program of Genocide against White children.
No one’s flooding Mexico with non-Mexicans in some attempt to end “Racism”, and trying to Force Integrate them to create a Blended Humanity. It IS genocide.
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

36) “Mixed race people are better”.
Machines guns are better than bows and arrows, that’s why the WHOLE world uses them.
But you anti-Whites aren’t going to Asia and saying “Mixed race people are better, so we’re going to flood your countries with millions of non-Asians and force blend you out of existence”.
You anti-Whites aren’t going to Africa and saying “Mixed race people are better, so we’re going to flood your countries with millions of non-Africans and force blend you out of existence”.
You anti-Whites ONLY demand this be done to EVERY White country and ONLY White countries. You are demanding and justifying the GENOCIDE of my people.

37) Nobody is saying that Africa needs diversity.
Nobody is saying that Asia needs diversity.
They are already 100% diverse.
People are only telling White children in White countries that they need diversity.
White Countries will be 100% diverse when there are no White people left.
Diversity is a code-word for White genocide; anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

38) If I talk about the intentional blending-out (genocide) of my race, the White race, I am called anaziwhowantstokillsixmillionj­ews. Every other race has a more or less homogenous homeland to go to. But for Whites this is strictly forbidden. Not only are we called the r-word for discussing this, it is ILLEGAL to have all-White communities or institutions the world over. This blatant double-standard is proof to the fact that anti-racist is a code word for anti-white. It IS White geNOcide!

39) Every White country on the planet is forced to become multicultural and multiracial. EVERY white country is told to end its own race and culture. No one asks that of ANY non-White country. Immigration and intermarriage is for EVERY White country and ONLY White countries. Anti-whites call themselves “anti-racists”, but their actions lead to the elimination of one race and only one race, my race, the White race. The true goal of anti-racism is to wipe out my race. It is genocide.

40) You’re response to White genocide is “have more babies”? Go to Nigeria and force them to accept tens of millions of Chinese (for the sake of a better economy) and force “integration” and “assimilation” while demonizing any Nigerians who are against this forced “diversity” as “raaacisss” until Black children are minorities in Nigeria and are eventually blended out of existence – then tell Nigerians “stop complaining, just have more babies” – LOL! You stupid Anti-White!

41) Separation is what creates diversity (separate sub-species) and maintains diversity. And ending separation is what ends diversity, by interbreeding separate subspecies out of existence.
The separation between human subspecies in this country has been ended not only by increasing the physical presence of non-Whites here by “immigration,” but also by having constantly repeated the R-WORD until it’s become the automatic reflex of most Whites at any attempts to maintain social separation.

42) Africa isn’t becoming non-black. African people don’t have a policy of mass non-black immigration and assimilation forced upon them. Asia isn’t becoming non-Asian. Asian people don’t have a policy of mass non-Asian immigration and assimilation forced upon them. Yet EVERY white country has to accept a policy of mass non-white immigration and assimilation that no one ever voted for. The anti-whites want a mixed, blended humanity for EVERY white country. They want white genocide.

43) You dont understand the implications of what U are demanding, YOU are demanding White geNOcide; “diversity” is code word for White geNOcide.
Which non-White populations do you demand be more racially “diverse” until there is “enough diversity” to blend the host population out of existence? or are you only anti-White? you only demand White geNOcide, no?
If “diversity” isn’t forced, you describe the “diversity” my People and ONLY my White People are forced to accept?

44) Racial separation is a beautiful thing.
Anti-Whites oppose separation and claim to love diversity.
But it’s a simple fact of evolution that separation is what has produced diversity.
Anti-Whites support a blackout on black-on-White murders. Anti-Whites support flooding White countries with non-Whites. Anti-whites support White genocide and call it anti-racism.
But anti-racism is just a code word for anti-White.

45) Africa for the Africans, Asia for the Asians, White Countries for Everyone
There will still be Africans in Africa. There will still be Asians in Asia. But my race is set to be blended out of existence through mass immigration and forced assimilation.
That’s genocide.
This is happening in ALL white countries and ONLY white countries.
This is genocide through racial assimilation.
Wake up and fight the system!

46) Diversity is code word for less White People. Nobody says an Asian country that is 100% Asian needs more diversity. Nobody says an African country that is 100% Black needs more diversity. Anti-Whites claim “anti-racism” and demand diversity for White countries and ONLY White countries. They say it’s Africa for the Africans, Asia for the Asians, and White countries for EVERYBODY!

47) Everybody says the final solution to the RACE problem is for EVERY White country & ONLY White countries to “assimilate” w/ hundreds of millions of non-Whites
What if I said the final solution to the Black problem would be pouring hundreds of millions of non-Blacks into all Black countries & ONLY into Black countries? How long would it take any sane Black man not to notice this? And what kind of psycho Black man wouldn’t object to this on ground of Genocide?
Anti-racist is anti-White

48) Africa for Africans, Asia for Asians, White Countries for Everybody
Annihilation by Assimilation
Every white country on earth is supposed to become multicultural and multiracial. EVERY white country is expected to end its own race and end its own culture. No one asks that of ANY non-white country.
Everybody says the final solution to the RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to bring in the third world and assimilate with them.
Its white genocide.

——————————————————————————————–

RACE PROBLEM (Section-B)

1) Let me get this right. Genetic science accepts and can define race while social sciences negate race? Genetic science=based on hard facts and DNA while Social Science=based on egalitarian, leftist biases? I think i can see a problem here!
Are you an anti-White self hating White or a non White?

2) Ah, the ole “out of Africa” hypothesis.
Why is that hypothesis only used to benefit Blacks in White countries outside Africa?
In America & Europe, we’re told “we’re all from Africa” so we have to set aside our ethnic interests to not offend our Black “cousins.”
In South Africa, even though “we’re all from Africa,” we’re told Whites have no right to the country they built. People shouting “we’re all from Africa” to “fight raaacisssm” aren’t anti-racist at all. They’re anti-White.

3) Nobody is flooding Black nations and ONLY Black nations with non-Blacks and saying, “Its OK, there is no such thing as race. So we are going to replace Black people with a blended people.” This is happening in White nations and ONLY in White nations. They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White. Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White. And what they want IS genocide.

4) If there is no such thing as race, there is no such thing as genocide. A murderer on death row will swear he is innocent of murder if there is no body. How are the two different? Both are equally delusional. Would you give up on prosecuting a murderer because he is delusional?
All of their arguments result in fewer White people. Don’t let them get away with it.

5) Race is a social construct? A forensics expert will be able to take a hair off of a rotting dead body and be able to tell through DNA the GENOtype of that individual. However, to keep from getting fired, in the next breath they may say race does not exist. But when it comes down to serious business, they will identify the bodies.

6) “Race is a social construct”.
Should ALL and ONLY Black countries be flooded with hundreds of millions of non-Blacks who are then force assimilated into the Black population because “Race is a social construct”???
You anti-Whites ONLY ever argue for this to be done to EVERY White country and ONLY White countries. You are demanding and justifying the GENOCIDE of my people.

7) The only time so called “anti-racists”, ever acknowledge the existence of White people, is when they are calling us names.
“White Trash”, “White Supremacist”, “White Racist”, etc, etc..
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

8) “We’re all the human race”.
So you’re saying that my people don’t exist? and therefore their countries should be flooded with hundreds of millions of immigrants, and then have these immigrants assimilated until my people become minorities, because according to you “We’re all the human race”???
Nobody is doing that to the Black people in Africa.
Nobody is doing that to the Asians in Asia.
Nobody is doing that to the Muslims in the Middle east.
Nobody is doing that to the Mestizo people in South America.
You anti-Whites ONLY ever argue for this to be done to EVERY White country and ONLY White countries. You are demanding and justifying the GENOCIDE of my people.

9) The UN Genocide Law, SPECIFICALLY recognizes the existence of RACE as an ‘Identifiable Group’, to prevent what anti-Whites like you are doing right now.
Your attempt to dehumanize my people, the White race, by saying we are a social construct and we do not exist, will not work.
Dehumanization is one of the 8 steps of genocide.
No one is going to Africa or Asia and telling the people there, Blacks or Asians do not exist. Anti-Whites are only doing this in all White countries and only White countries.
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

10) Meanwhile, no one is flooding Africa with Non Africans and telling them… “Race is a social construct” …we are going to create a blended humanity in ONLY Africa.
No one is flooding Japan with non-Japanese and telling them… “Race is a social construct” …we are going to create a blended humanity in ONLY Japan.
Only White countries are doing this, only Anti-Whites like you are pushing it. Its GeNOcide.

11) Why are you trying to deny the existence of a group, anti-White? This is a process called ‘dehumanisation’ and common in those complicit with the crime of GENOCIDE.
Do you support mass immigration, FORCED multiCULTuralism and FORCED
Multi-racialism in White countries and ONLY White countries?
Do you support GENOCIDE?
Anti racism is a code word for anti White.

12) If we are the same then when skeletal remains are found forensics specialist would say “we have the remains a a male/female human”. They don’t. Instead we hear “we have the remains of a Caucasian male/female or we have the remains of a black male/female”. So are you saying that forensics pathologists (or whatever they are called) are wrong? I’ll answer it for you, no. And that is because we are all human, yes, but race is a biological construct not a social one.

13) Evidence suggest that humans are %1 different than chimps. We all know how different we are from chimps. Now, there is a %1 difference between male and female. There is also a difference of %1 between black and white. But yet you say we are all the same. How is that?

14) Anti-Whites have such a strong sense of White racial identity, that they will routinely associate collective guilt to White children for things that happened thousands of miles away, and hundreds of years before, those White children were even born.
And yet. Those same Anti-Whites will also look you straight in the eye. And tell you that the White race is just a social construct that does not actually exist.
Of course, all NORMAL people can see the obvious contradiction in the above.
But the other point is that Anti-Whites have never let a little thing like reality get in the way of their sick agenda. They say they are Anti-Racist. What they really are is Anti-White. Anti-Racist is just a CODE WORD for Anti-White!

15) One who argues that race does not exist, or the only race is the human race, is stating that genocide has never occurred and cannot occur.

16) The USA is for White people, Silly !
It says so right in the Constitution ‘for ourselves and OUR posterity’, remember?
The USA is not for Everybody, why do you think you have the right to take away White children’s countries and give them to 3rd Worlders? That’s very Anti-White.
Creating a ‘melting pot’ of freaky ‘blended humanity’ in ALL White countries is an act of Genocide.
Why do you justify White Genocide?
‘Anti-racism’ is a codeword for Anti-White

17) What we called a US citizen in the pre-50s, we now call a White supremacist, as everyone was “racist” back then? we just never talked about race because we never had to. “Racism” is the default position; the entire non-White world is “racist” to the bone. Only White people are forced to be race-neutral in order to facilitate our own genocide.
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

18) Yes, America is definitely a White country.
The US was created solely by White people. Until just a few decades ago she was 90% White.
The Constitution dedicates America to “ Secure the blessings of Liberty to ourselves and OUR Posterity.”
That was White people writing those words, so they meant White people`s Posterity, not the non-White global herd of “New Citizens” you anti-Whites have foisted on us.
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

19) A White country is one of the countries YOU anti-Whites insist has an obligation to import huge numbers of third world immigrants.
YOU define it all the time. General Wesley Clark defined what he would send American soldiers to die for: “There is no place IN EUROPE for an ethnically pure country.”
There is no place on earth for a Canada that is not multicultural, meaning multiracial.
YOU anti-Whites have defined what we pro-Whites are fighting for.

20) “America is a melting pot”
The Preamble to the United States Constitution states: “for ourselves and our Posterity”.
If the Asians took some land in a war, and then said “We claim this land for ourselves and our Posterity”, they’re not talking about Mexicans, or Africans, or Europeans; they’re talking about Asians and ONLY Asians.
Tell us exactly where in the US constitution it says “We are a melting pot.”
Tell us exactly where in the US constitution it says “We must bring in millions of immigrants and assimilate with them until Whites become a minority.”
Tell us exactly where in the US constitution it says “Oh, but this isn’t genocide on White people!”

21) Anti-Whites decided my country should be a “melting pot”. I didn’t. My people didn’t – there was no public voting on this. So why do they have the moral authority to flood my people with millions of immigrants, then force assimilate these people into my people until my people become minorities in their own home?
Why isn’t Africa, or Asia, or the Middle east a “melting pot”. If all this diversity and multiculturalism is so good, why are we keeping it for ALL and ONLY White countries?
You anti-Whites ONLY ever call White countries “melting pots” and ONLY White countries. You are demanding and justifying the GENOCIDE of my people.

22) Why is White racial survival a taboo topic in this society?
Because of the anti-White PC religion that demands that all White people must celebrate our own geNOcide, or be ex-communicated as “evil nazis”
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

23) You have never heard anybody talk about a race problem?
You have never heard the White race condemned?
You have never heard anybody insist on open borders?
You have never heard anybody say the Final Solution to racism is “mixing THE races”? When they mean only mixing races in predominantly White countries?
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

24) If you think it is “not a big deal” if White people are Blended out of existence, then nominate a non-White people to blend out of existence.
Together we can demand the borders to all of their nations and only their nations, be opened to millions of foreigners until they become a minority. We will encourage everyone to mix in until they disappear. We will call it “anti-racism” and “humanism” but just between you and me, the motivation is Hate.

25) White people can never disprove they are “evil-racist”, our very existence is seen as a form of “race-ism” by the so-called “anti-racists”.
They say all things White must become “diverse” or it is “evil-racism”.
They say there should be no White countries, no White communities, no White schools, no White sports, no White social gatherings, etc.
The anti-Whites give us Whites two choices: Accept White geNOcide or you are an “evil-racist”.
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

26) What exactly is this race problem?
No one is flooding Black or Brown countries with non-Blacks or non-Browns.
White countries and only White countries are being flooded with non-Whites.
But anyone who notices this fact is called a Naziwhowantstokillsixmillionje­ws!
“anti-racism” is really code for anti-White: the race problem is White genocide.

27) The NAACP is Black and pushes a pro-Black agenda. That’s called “empowerment.” Tea Partiers tend to be White and are scrupulously non-racialist. They’re called “racist.” That’s why I say anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

28) It`s your anti-White PC State Religion that is doing all the oppressing and censoring.
24/7 anti-White output, ALL pro-white output censored in the MSM as “hate”
You suck up to the head bully and think you can get away with participating in criminal conduct as long as he`s there to stop your enemies for you.
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

29) Nobody arrests Japanese in Japan for speaking the OBVIOUS TRUTH, that Zulus are not Japanese
Nobody arrests Zulus in Africa for speaking the OBVIOUS TRUTH, that Japanese are not Zulus
ONLY in White countries are we expected to believe that Turks are Germans,
Pakistanis are Englishmen and Vietnamese are Australians..
Every White country and ONLY White countries are expected to ‘mix’ out of existence
It’s GENOCIDE
Anti-racism is a codeword for Anti-White.

30) “Because of history ” does not justify White GENOCIDE
“For the economy” does not justify White GENOCIDE
“We all bleed red!” does not justify White GENOCIDE
“Because of colonialism” does not justify White GENOCIDE
“A shortage of doctors” does not justify White GENOCIDE
“We are all human!” does not justify White GENOCIDE
“Race is just a social construct!” does not justify White GENOCIDE
“We are all from Africa!” does not justify White GENOCIDE
Anti racism is a code word for anti White.

31) You say any White person who stands up for their people is a “racist.” When Ghandi stood up for Indian people he was called a hero, When Mandela stood up for Black people he was called a hero, but when anyone stands up for White people they are called a “racist”. Anti-racist is just a codeword for anti-White.

32) “Anti-racist isn’t a code word for Anti-White”
It’s a FACT that no major “anti-racist” campaign ever targets non-Whites. That’s why anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

33) Go to all the Black countries in the world such as Nigeria, Congo, Zambia, etc, force mass non-Black immigration into Black countries, force “integration”, promote “assimilation” in the media, schools and goverment and demonize, ruin, and even jail any Black person who’s against this forced diversity until Black children are minorities in their own countries or worse – then tell the Black people that are left “we are all one people”.
Who do you think you are kidding anti-White?

34) MultiCULTuralism today looks like this…
African countries for Africans
Asian countries for Asians
Israel for Jews or you’re an anti-semite!
White countries for everyone or you’re a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionje­ws.
White people protesting this genocidal hypocrisy are called “race-ist”
Anti-Racist is a code word for Anti-White

35) Hypocrisy is that all White countries and only White countries are made to accept massive non-White immigration in the name of “diversity,” while others are not. You and similar people with manipulated minds have been conditioned to use the word racism through decades of social engineering to shut up any White person who resists this. Anti-racism is truly and utterly just a codeword for anti-white.

36) Nobody ever says “let’s import MILLIONS of non-Africans into every African country and ONLY into African countries. Then, when the Africans object we will call them “evil-racists”.
Nobody ever says “let’s import MILLIONS of non-Asians into every Asian country and ONLY into Asian countries. Then, when the Asians object we will call them “evil-racists”.
Of course not. They ONLY target White children for extermination. They ONLY label Whites as “evil-racists” for opposing their own geNOcide. They ONLY DEMAND Whites accept this as their reality. They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.
anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

37) The R-WORD has been a principal tool anti-Whites have used to further their program of White Genocide. It carries the fundamental lie that racial feeling is a learned pathology rather than an innate biological trait that evolved to protect the survival of racial groups.
Whites are the only race that have been taught that lie, and are the only race that believe it. White people, wake up! We are being targeted for Genocide thru assimilation!

38) Travel to Asia and places like Japan and Korea are almost 100% Asian, China is 90% Han Chinese like America was 90% White in 1965 and there are no crazy anti-racist groups, demanding they become more diverse, ie less Asian.
Travel to any other non-White country in the world and it is the same. It doesn’t matter if the country is rich or poor, no anti-racist groups are in those countries demanding they become more diverse, ie a minority in their own lands.
Yet if you visit any White country, it doesn’t matter which one you choose, you find diversity is celebrated and White minority is demanded and calculated to the exact year in the ones where they got the program started early – USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Western and Central Europe. Eastern Europe is dirt poor and is asked when they will be ready for this immigration, regular as clock work; even Iceland (it only has a few hundred thousand White people lol) is pressured to become “more diverse”, ie less White.
So this diversity nonsense is being pulled anywhere that is White and no where that is non-White.
No White country has ever been allowed to discuss it, let alone vote on it. And after decades of social engineering, most White people are terrified of being called “racist”. anti-racist is a code word for anti-White

The South African experience

COVER-UP ON E-TOLLING PROJECT REMINISCENT OF PRE-1994 TACTICS - IFP

The IFP said today that it was shocked to learn the real reasons behind government's push to ensure the controversial Gauteng e-tolling project succeeds

It is reported today, that the Public Investment Corporation - an investment manager for state institutions - has bought R17 billion in SANRAL bonds. 89% of this investment is made-up of the Government Employees Pension Funds.

"Finally it is clear why government wants to save this project at all cost, despite it being unfeasible and despite it receiving so much public resistance. These types of cover-ups were prevalent during the apartheid regime, but never could one have imagined such a huge cover-up in our post-democratic dispensation," said Narend Singh MP, the IFP's spokesperson on Finance and on the e-tolling project.

It is now clear that there are huge economic issues at stake. If the tolling project fails, Government will not only have to bail-out SANRAL, but it will also have to bail-out the civil servants' pension funds as well.

"It is clear that Government finds itself between a rock and a very hard place," said Singh.

He added, "This matrix that we find ourselves in now is totally untenable, especially since the pensions of ordinary citizens are at stake. Government has misled the public. We believe that this might possibly be one of the biggest post-democratic era scandals to date. I will raise this matter at the next possible opportunity at Parliament, as the taxpayer deserves answers on this matter," concluded Singh.

The rise and decline of ANC hegemony

By RW Johnson
18 December 2011
RW Johnson on the slipping away of the ruling party's moral dominance

It's not clear how far the ANC's thinking about the hegemony it wishes to exercise over society has been inspired by the Gramscian model, but it is hard to believe that Gramsci hasn't had something to do with it. An Italian Marxist of the early part of this century, Antonio Gramsci was imprisoned by Mussolini and died, aged 46, in 1937. His works first became known to the English-speaking world in the 1960s through the pages of New Left Review, which was also responsible for introducing Anglophones to Merleau-Ponty, Althusser, Poulantzas and a host of other Continental Marxists.

NLR never had a large sale but its influence was immense on university campuses, for it was uncompromisingly intellectual and was willing and able to take on all-comers. It was certainly well-read in Marxist circles on the Sussex campus at the time that Thabo Mbeki and the Pahads were there, as well as on many other campuses where ANC exiles were students.

There was a problem, however. NLR has been founded in the wake of the crisis of British Communism following the revelation of Stalin's crimes and the Soviet invasion of Hungary, which had triggered mass resignations from the CPGB. Thus while NLR was a supporter of the revolutionary Left throughout the Third World, it had largely lost faith in the Soviet model and was thus not wholly approved of by orthodox Communists - and most ANC exiles were orthodox Soviet-line Communists. And while Soviet theorists were not hostile to Gramsci - he had been a leader of the Italian Communist Party (the PCI) and had died fighting fascism - nor did they quote him, regarding him in practise as suspiciously liberal and voluntarist.

Even so, it is clear that his influence did seep into various exile circles, often influencing further generations of exile students through them. This is clear, all else apart, from the usage of the term "organic intellectual", a Gramscian term, which can not infrequently be heard in the mouths of Left activists, let alone the continual stress on the need for ANC "hegemony", Gramsci's central concept.

Gramsci's vision

Gramsci was fascinated by the way in which ruling classes rule. While he accepted the standard Marxist notion that all forms of rule were really class dictatorships, he pointed out that in normal capitalist countries the ruling class did not rule principally by coercion. Instead, the peasants and workers voluntarily assented to many of the norms of bourgeois rule.

How could this be? It was, he said, because each ruling class generated its own dominant culture - egemonia - and that these ruling ideas became the ruling ideas of the whole society, not just of the bourgeoisie. In the Italian case, the peasantry and workers were deeply infused with the Catholicism which overlaid the whole of Italian society, and while this was so they would never join in, let alone lead, revolutionary action.

Culture was manufactured and propagated by intellectuals, Gramsci said. On the one hand there were "traditional intellectuals" working away as Shakespeare scholars, mathematicians, astronomers or even as students of liturgy. In effect, they belonged to a part of the superstructure which had floated free of the sub-structure, for their work had no direct class meaning. But each social class also had its "organic intellectuals", consciously trying to propagate the culture of their class as a part of the wider class struggle.

This was how Gramsci thought of his own role as editor first of Avanti! and then of L'Ordine Nuovo. He also helped found the PCI paper, L'Unita. For Gramsci regarded the role of newspapers as absolutely primary in the building of the party and the class.

The working class could not just achieve revolution by violence, Gramsci argued. Just as the bourgeosie had done, it had to build the presence of the party within society and to generate its own egemonia, so that even the bourgeoisie would be affected by this new ruling culture and would voluntarily accept many of its ruling ideas.

To do this, the party would build a wide series of alliances, constiuting what Gramsci called a "historic bloc" and would attempt to get its egemonia accepted by the whole of that bloc. This would in fact minimise the need for violence. There would be no need for terror or a police state after the revolution, for acceptance of the new cultural hegemony would mean that most people voluntarily accepted at least the main principles of the new order.

These ideas became basic to the PCI - for Gramsci and Togliatti were exact peers - which is why it built itself not as a vanguard party but as a mass party with millions of members, why it spawned endless alliances and front organizations, and why it sought a "historic compromise" with the Christian Democrats, hoping to spread a vague progressivism across the whole of that alliance. By 1976 the PCI was winning a whole one-third of the vote and these objectives did not seem so far away.

The SACP - fast asleep

The South African Communist Party, for its part, lived in a different world. It conducted its struggle in classic Leninist fashion, becoming the ideological vanguard of the ANC, leading its armed struggle, and very largely controlling the ANC-in-exile.  It was a Stalinist party in that it simply paid no heed to Marxist theorists outside the Lenin-Stalin canon. Indeed, whereas European communist parties were traumatised and shaken by the twin shock of Hungary and Khruschev's revelations about Stalin, neither event had any noticeable effect on South African communism for it seemed to live in a parochial, iron-clad world of its own.

The Eurocommunism of the 1960s and 1970s found no echo within the SACP, and none of the great intellectual controversies of European Marxism seemed of any interest to the decidedly unintellectual SACP. Quite how insulated from reality the SACP had been became evident only in the 1990s when Slovo talked of how shaken he and his comrades had been by Gorbachev's recent revelations about the Gulag. Yet this was fantastical. First word of the Gulag had seeped out of the USSR in the late 1930s. In the early post-war world there had been a major controversy over the Gulag in the pages of Sartre's Les Temps Modernes in the late 1940s. 

After Stalin's death in 1953 more and more people were released from the Gulag and came back to tell their awful tale, a fact which built up to Khruschev's major speech on the subject at the 20th CPSU Congress of 1956. Thereafter, more and more details seeped out either in official ways - e.g. via the rehabilitation of  more and more of those murdered and demonised by Stalin - or through the novels (e.g. Gulag Archipelago, Cancer Ward) and other writings of the dissidents. For Slovo to admit to his shock at the revelation of the Gulag was actually an admission that he had been a Rip Van Winkle, snoring through the last several decades of Marxist and Communist life.

However, De Klerk's sudden decision to abolish apartheid in 1990 and to offer the exiles full democracy completely destabilised the Party and its strategy. Suddenly the slogan, so often repeated, about "the seizure of state power" was out of date, as was the armed struggle and many more such shibboleths. Before long, even nationalisation and socialism were gone, or at least indefinitely postponed.

Meanwhile, the Soviet Union collapsed along with all the other Warsaw Pact communist states. Not only was the Cold War over but the SACP found itself on the losing side. Long term Communist cadres, both exiles and inziles - Thabo Mbeki, Cyril Ramaphosa and many another - suddenly went on unlimited sabbatical from the SACP and even Slovo announced that he would "devote himself to ANC work" in the future, his way of saying that he wanted to be regarded as an ANC cadre instead of a Communist. The ANC grasped desperately at affirmative action, about the only "radical" policy still available amidst this flotsam and jetsam.

The new reach for hegemony

It was within this context that the ANC began to reach for "hegemony". Even if it could not have sole power, even if it had to be just one party competing against others, it would nonetheless demand a complete dominance over the entire system - and its culture. Straight away in 1990 its cadres fanned out, seeking control of the cultural commanding heights - of the universities, of the SABC, of the Human Sciences Research Council and, of course, of the press. It gained predominant control in the first three fairly quickly - but the problem was that ANC control was also profoundly destructive. Fairly soon the HSRC ceased to matter and most English-speakers just stopped listening to the SAFM English programme. Most of the old black tribal colleges either collapsed completely and had to be put under administration or were so close to that state as to positively repel students.

The assault on the universities

The Afrikaans-medium universities were left to their own devices - though soon almost none were Afrikaans-speaking. The old English-speaking universities were the main target and they effectively became parastatals whose vice chancellors could not be appointed save with ANC assent. This had a deadening effect throughout those universities which ceased to be reservoirs of critical thought. With no real exceptions they embraced the new ANC-friendly political correctness, with Wits setting a low point by giving William Makgoba its highest honour although as Deputy Vice Chancellor he had illegally purloined the personnel files of numerous senior faculty and used them to defame the faculty members in question.

This low point was matched by UCT bestowing a special leadership award on President Mbeki, making special mention of his Aids denialism in favourable terms. What these awards betokened was that the country's two leading English-speaking universities were willing to go to almost any lengths to ingratiate themselves with the new elite.

But the real damage was done less publicly. South Africa had followed the British university model in which the crucial academic body was the university senate, composed of all the professors. What this guaranteed was that in day-to-day governance universities were run as a republic of the scholars. This was, in the last analysis, the best guarantee of academic freedom and academic standards.

Which would, of course, no longer be tolerable in an age of ANC hegemony for it would guarantee the independence of critical thought, which was just what was not wanted, and of academic standards which might have politically undesirable consequences. What was wanted now was "transformation".

This vague term was seldom resisted: most academics and administrators voluntarily embraced it though there was no agreement as to what it meant. For some it meant a voyage of personal change - it was easily assumed that all whites were racists to some extent and needed a bit of healthy brain-washing. Others saw it as being about changing syllabi or gender equality or affirmative action. It meant all of these things and more and in general it meant changing in an ANC-directed way.

What it meant most of all, though, was pretending. University entrance criteria would be ratcheted down so as to make it easier for black students from lousy schools to gain entry but the pretence was that standards has been maintained.

Then, because many of these students were barely literate, many universities devised remedial courses for them to "bring them up to speed". This involved several levels of pretence: first that it was a reasonable use of university resources to do all manner of high school teaching; second, virtually all students were "passed" at the end of these remedial stints, so the pretence was that they were now really ready to do degree-level work, which most manifestly weren't; third, the universities would all pretend that they were committed above all to "excellence" though in fact the standard of their courses and degrees was dropping fast; fourth, degrees would be awarded to students who, in their final year, were still not fully literate, leading to a hideous devaluation of those degrees in the labour marketplace; fifth, black academics who were often clearly rather weak would be appointed in preference to whites who were often stronger on the pretence that these blacks were at least equally good or better; and finally, as the research output of these new appointees was often derisory, all manner of strategems would be adopted to disguise the resultant deterioration in the university's research profile - retired, honorary or supernumerary faculty would have their research counted as part of the university's output, and so on.

These pretences were not only dishonest but very cruel for they offered to underprivileged black students the promise and the appearance that they would receive an education of unaltered quality, prestige and utility, whereas in fact the opposite was the case. Coincidentally, these changes also collectively meant that the universities would fail the country.

It could hardly be imagined that all these changes would be acceptable to the academic faculty. So under the new dispensation the powers of vice chancellors and university councils grew enormously, as did those of new, more powerful deans and bureaucrats, as also the SASCO-dominated SRCs and the Nehawu-organised staff. Everywhere the academic faculty were the losers, finding themselves relegated to worker-ant status, with new ideological gatekeepers in powerful positions throughout the academic structure. Senates simply ceased to matter - and with them went academic freedom. In the worst case - the University of KwaZulu-Natal - the Vice Chancellor enacted rules giving him the ability to scrutinize and censor the e-mails of all academic faculty.

UKZN was important - the first of the old liberal universities to be reduced to tribal college status. Academics not only feared for their jobs but fled in fear. The whiff of panic could be sensed throughout the system. Protest and critical thought, let alone critical publication, simply withered on the vine. UKZN was not an isolated example: at Wits too there was a determined flight of the liberal-minded.

But nowhere was safe anymore and so universities became graveyards of critical thought. Such critical intellectuals as still existed had to live beyond the confines of the campus. For them it was a condition of life that the one place where they would never be invited to speak would be on a university campus.

With this something very important in South Africa died. But there was no funeral, no common understanding of the death that had occurred and it would have been dangerously politically incorrect for anyone to have been caught grieving. The pretence went on that nothing had changed. University PR departments continually spoke of their "pursuit of excellence", of how the universities were determinedly rising to their new challenges and so on. In truth everyone knew this was a fraud.

You just had to look at the modern breed of vice-chancellor and compare them to the old breed - Duminy, Malherbe, Bozzoli - who had fought for academic freedom against apartheid, to understand how much had been lost. Not just in courage and intellectual gravitas, but in intellectual depth and, indeed, in truthfulness. Occasionally, even black intellectuals like Mamphela Ramphele remarked aloud that the universities seemed to have fallen asleep, that there was no more protest, no more critical thought coming from that direction. Such observations would fall like hail on the roof: an immediate clatter and then they were gone, melted. For no one cared to enquire too deeply at how bad the damage was, how Mamphela herself had caused enormous damage when she was vice-chancellor of UCT. It wasn't just that the truth was painful. It was embarrassing.

A consensus with the press

This left the press. Here too there was grave cause for concern since Tony O'Reilly, whose Independent Newspapers (IN) had bought the Argus chain, was equally desperate to ingratiate himself with an ANC leadership which wanted nothing less than full press control. O'Reilly's nominee, Ivan Fallon - despite his ultra-Thatcherite past, a hired gun in the last analysis - sought to ensure that IN would give no offence to the ANC, a command all too happily obeyed by such shamelessly deferential editors as Peter Sullivan and Shaun Johnson. However, this never fully applied to either Business Day or the Mail and Guardian, nor to the whole of the Afrikaans press.

Meanwhile all sections of the press sought refuge in a ridiculous show of Mandela-worship, hoping desperately that this would protect them from the regime's ire. Anthony Sampson was dispatched by the ANC to go round Fleet Street demanding that the present writer not be published in any British paper - a foolish and illiberal errand which ended in complete failure.

Undoubtedly the period of greatest danger was 1994-1999 with Mandela's popularity at its zenith. In that period the ANC found many white admirers and members, often well-educated and well-connected folk so that a new sort of pro-ANC political correctness was very much in vogue at dinner party tables. Thabo Mbeki and Essop Pahad repeatedly tried to pull the press into an alliance with the government.

At endless bosberaads the suggestion would be made that the press should agree on its collective point of view and the governments on its. Then a deal could be brokered so that everyone could speak with the same voice - a perfect example of the attempted creation of a "historic bloc" which would then generate a single overall hegemony. This came close to happening, for many of the editors were naïve and wishful and everyone agreed that the government "had the moral high ground".

Luckily there were enough old-style liberals like Raymond Louw to argue that the press could never have just one view because newspapers were necessarily individualist and competitive, and that, a fortiori, the press could never forge a consensus view with government because its job was to stand outside such elite pacts, reporting on them and, if necessary, criticizing them. Even so, it was a close run thing and most of the press was deeply deferential towards the ANC. To the fury of the opposition Democratic Party, it was very difficult to get fair coverage of alternative points of view, and even when there was coverage it was often snide.

The mood was best expressed for me by a meeting I had with Philip Van Niekerk, editor of the Mail and Guardian, in early 1994. I asked him what he was hoping for in the coming election. Well, he replied cheerfully, I think there is a really good chance that the ANC can win all nine provinces. Would you like that, I asked? He seemed quite flummoxed by the question. It seemed never to have occurred to him that one could not be positive about such a prospect. "What I mean", I said, "is don't you want there to be an Opposition at all?" He was clearly discomfited to have it put like that. "Well, I don't mind if the DP get a few seats here and there", he said. "But that's not the point, is it?" I persisted. "If the ANC controls the central government and all nine provinces, no countervailing voice of any kind will be heard. It's crucial that somebody else wins at least some of those provinces."

Philip glared at me because it was obvious to us both that what that meant was the IFP winning KwaZulu-Natal and the National Party winning the Western Cape. Both of these parties were anathema to him. He could never find himself wishing for their victory. The difference between us, I realised, was that I just wanted someone - anyone - to block the road to one-partyism whereas, for him, anxiety at such a prospect was a wholly new thought. And this was the editor of a paper which had fought hard for press freedom, which saw itself as a critical voice.

To be fair, Philip became a good editor and fought hard for most of the right things. He certainly came to regret his own simple-minded ANC loyalties and, indeed, burnt his boats with Mbeki. The same was true of his successor, Howard Barrell. Up until then a career at the M&G had served as a useful springboard to higher office of one kind or another but both Van Niekerk and Barrell ended their editorial careers by emigrating, an ample comment on the rising price of dissent in ANC-ruled South Africa. But the real turning point came, of course, with the Zuma vs Mbeki struggle which accidentally but completely freed the press: since there were now two ANC sides at one another's throats, the press was at liberty to say what it wanted. There was an immediate sea change - which has never been reversed.

Yet hegemony escapes

Roll the clock forward to 2011 and what do we find? The universities and the SABC, still in their deathly coma, probably matter less than for generations. The press is lively, dissident and full of stories to the discredit of the president, government and ANC. The parliamentary Opposition to the ANC is stronger than at any time since 1994 and that Opposition continues to make inroads at local level. ANC factionalism has become a way of life. There is, nowadays, nothing particularly novel about the leader of Cosatu making angry speeches about corruption in the ANC leading to all manner of malgovernance, thuggery and even assassination.

This goes unchallenged because the evidence, even of the assassinations, is plentiful and public. The credibility of government has never been lower. When Zuma took office and promised half a million jobs, nobody really believed him - and indeed the score after a year was minus 900,000, not plus 500,000. So Zuma swiftly followed up with a promise to create 5 million jobs by 2020.

Even fewer believed a word of it. And then, to top it all, Trevor Manuel's Plan spoke of 11 million new jobs to be created by 2030. Mr Manuel is no fool and it is extremely hard to believe that he had the slightest faith in such a promise himself. Similarly, the government bravely claims to believe in a new National Health Insurance system which depends on the public health system being turned round to become efficient and well-managed and in the government finding, out of nowhere, many scores of thousands more health professionals. It is doubtful if one person in a hundred believes in that.

The ANC has lost virtually all its politically correct white fringe. The only whites left in the ANC now are either tired old apparatchiks (usually Communists) imprisoned in their own ideology or a few odds and ends who are typically regarded by other whites as cranks or as having personality disorders. Something similar is happening in both the Indian and Coloured communities. Even ANC supporters do not claim these days that they occupy "the moral high ground", for fear of ribald laughter. This has prompted some - Rhoda Khadalie, for example - to try to date when exactly the ANC lost that ground and changed from the Mandela ANC into today's federation of warlords. This is an ahistorical mistake.

Factionalism, corruption and the use of political violence (including assassination) were all part of the ANC's life in exile. All these tendencies were at work from the moment that the ANC relaunched itself back in South Africa in 1990. The truth was disguised for a while by the Mandela leadership cult but the fact is, of course, that the arms deal and the corruption it brought into the centre of South African life, occurred under Mandela's presidency.

Today's situation is a simple, organic growth. It is not some surprising and dreadful fall from grace (only the most shallow and tired political commentators speak of the ANC "losing its soul"). It is exactly what we should all have expected if we had bothered to notice how the ANC ran itself in exile or, indeed, had we had bothered to notice how harsh, corrupt and ruthless large areas of black South African life are.

The ANC has reacted to this denouement by trying to rein in the press and by frantic attempts to plug the damaging leaks which emanate regularly from its own ranks due to the exigencies of factional warfare. Gwede Matashe, the party's Secretary-General, frantically berates the "agents" and "fifth columnists" in the party's ranks who are "selling secrets". He even waxes indignant that press reports quickly appear with accounts of meetings of the party's "top six" officials - without, apparently, realising that this means that some within the top six are themselves leaking information. Naturally, Mantashe regards all this with the usual ANC paranoia, apparently oblivious of the fact that this is how all parties in democratic societies behave.

What all this means, of course, is not only that the ANC is not building a cultural hegemony over South African society but that it is quite impossible that it could do so. The test, remember, is whether the ANC's assumptions are voluntarily assented to even by its potential opponents so that they happily comply with no need for coercion. This is not a description of how any of the racial minorities think. Their attitude towards ANC rule is angry, mocking and entirely cynical.

In general they get away with whatever they can: consciousness of widespread government corruption has entirely undermined even ordinary civic-mindedness about one's duty to pay taxes. Recent election results suggest that such resistant attitudes towards ANC rule have become virtually unanimous among whites, with white support for the DA reaching dimensions hitherto seen only in the Eastern European People's Democracies. But the results also show both the Indian and Coloured communities consolidating around similar views and the DA breaking into the African vote, indicating that the ANC is retreating from hegemony, not advancing towards it.

Regretting the Late Bourgeois World

This situation is more or less inevitable given the obvious contrast between the DA-ruled Western Cape and the ANC-ruled provinces, and the similar contrast between DA-ruled Cape Town and the other ANC-ruled cities. In Johannesburg two weeks ago I realised how far the city has slipped towards the status of a Kinshasa. In a very large area of Joburg including the suburb in which I resided, there was an eighteen hour blackout - no apology, no explanation. We drove frantically for miles seeking an area where there was electricity and hot food. Dark shapes flitted in front of the car and there were no street lights.

Of the 25 traffic lights we went through, nineteen weren't working. Friends said "We live in an ungoverned city". Weeds grew rank on pavements and highways. It was dispiriting, a reminder of how far and fast one can fall. The idea that Joburg could be the main city of South Africa, or even of Africa, seemed ludicrous. For any resident of Cape Town such pretensions seem merely laughable.

Meanwhile more and more of Africa floods towards Cape Town, the fastest growing city. We are continually treated to foolish articles telling us Cape Town is still too white, is still not African enough. No one seems to stop and consider that since Cape Town is growing faster than anywhere else, this is clearly what is most valued and wanted.

Everyone is willing to have a bit of folklorique Africana provided the city runs properly, the police, the schools, the hospitals and the roads all work.

The problem is that anyone over the age of 35 remembers when all of South Africa used to be like that. That's when all the roads, railways and traffic lights got built: our much simpler job is merely to maintain them and that is clearly not happening. No one wants to be accused of nostalgia for apartheid - and in truth apartheid was ugly, irredeemable, un-regretted by anyone - but there is undoubtedly a deep nostalgia among all races for the way South Africa was once run, where jobs got done, where the cities were properly managed and so on. Looked at from this point of view ANC rule is merely an affliction, a national misfortune. This is not just a white or minority race perspective: in an article in the Sunday Independent (11 December 2011) the black journalist, Prince Mashele, asks "How can we save society from the degeneration of the ruling party?" Similar perspectives are to be found in the writings of other black journalists. And quite clearly, a party whose rule is viewed as an affliction or misfortune is in no position to establish, let alone strengthen, its hegemony. For the moment the ANC is paying scant attention to this situation for the life of the party lies in its factions and while the party enjoys national power each faction can dream of gaining the ascendancy which would enable it to make it "their turn to eat".

The ANC has responded to this problem by repeated attempts to unseat the DA from the city of Cape Town and the Western Cape - but the DA has entrenched itself still further. It has launched its own newspaper, The New Age, but the effect is miniscule, the paper loses money every day and even it has begun to voice criticisms of the ANC. And it has brought in the new Secrecy Bill - though this will clearly alienate the press even further. So none of these steps work and, indeed, they are likely to be counter-productive. The re-election of Jacob Zuma as president - still the most likely outcome - will almost certainly deepen public cynicism still more.

Meanwhile the SACP has clearly become agitated at the situation: they inveigh frequently against "neoliberalism" and against liberal-minded NGOs like the SA Institute of Race Relations and speak of their determination to win "the battle of ideas". This has no popular echo and is important only as evidence that they are aware that the game is slipping away from them.

What next?

So what next? It is tempting to predict a much tougher crack-down against the liberal-spirited (with black journalists in the front row) as the full seriousness of this loss of hegemony dawns on the regime. But history is rather against that. We have, after all, had three waves of nationalism. The first was a British jingo wave. It felt supreme confidence in its hegemony at the conclusion of the Anglo-Boer War but this was rapidly disappointed when it became clear both that Afrikaner resistance had not died away and also that the voting solidarity of the Anglo-bloc was a lot weaker than Milner and Churchill had hoped. Faced with these realities by 1907 they realised that they could only prevail through another armed conflict, for which they had no appetite at all.

Accordingly the Jingoes had to retreat towards a "common South Africanism" of Boer and Briton, an ideology which became the central theme of Botha, Smuts and the United Party. But even so, this hegemony was always contested by Afrikaner nationalists on the Right and African nationalists on the Left. This "common (white) South Africanism" was the nearest thing to a hegemonic ideology in the 1910-1948 period but its hold was always a little tenuous, even before it was completely overthrown by Malan's Nationalists in 1948.

This second wave of Afrikaner nationalism proceeded to build a hegemony which was intended to last indefinitely. The rule of the NP was strongly supported by the DRC, by a network of Afrikaans newspapers, by hugely strengthened Afrikaans schools and universities and by a rising Afrikaner business class. Together these institutions fused to form a class "historic bloc" of formidable proportions, reinforced by an Afrikaner-led police and armed forces of great strength. Yet even so, this hegemony was never uncontested - by the English-speaking press and Opposition, by the English-speaking universities, by African nationalism and by Liberals and the far Left.

Gradually this hegemony weakened - by the 1970s there were clear splits in the ruling Afrikaner bloc and by the 1980s the National Party had largely lost confidence in its mission, had ceased to believe very much in itself and the vision it had so long preached. Thus once the crucial crack in the edifice came in 1990, the party swiftly fell apart and vanished altogether.

African nationalism came to power with more mass support than either of these two earlier waves but it has been losing that support at a prodigal rate: if one measures its support not as a proportion of the electorate but as a fraction of the eligible adult population, one gets a true picture of how deeply abstention and even a refusal to register at all, have eaten into the great voting wave of 1994.

But perhaps even more important, African nationalism entirely lacks the institution-building skills of the earlier waves. English-speaking whites bequeathed the country its major liberal universities, a network of private schools, key public corporations and a series of Anglo-churches. Afrikaners left behind them Afrikaans financial institutions, the DRC, the Afrikaans universities and hoerskools. African nationalism has built no distinctive institutions of its own outside the party itself.

It is, in that sense, very much less well equipped to defend its hegemony. History suggests that as that slips away the party will be left increasingly bereft, increasingly unsure of itself and vulnerable to internal collapse.

There may, in other words, never come a moment when the ANC attempts to erect a coercive regime to shore up its faltering hegemony. Either way, that moment is still some way off. For the moment its factions can continue to bat around the notion of the national democratic revolution and can continue to believe in such impossibilities as the NHI or 11 million jobs by 2030. But the time will come when they look back and realise that the battle for hegemony was irrevocably lost long before and with it any chance that their dreams could prevail.

Africa's Lack of Progress in Anti-Corruption Strategies - Report

Press release

Washington, DC — Regardless of how weak or sophisticated their political financing regulations are, countries around the world are equally failing to effectively regulate the flow of money into politics, a new report finds. The Global Integrity Report: 2011, a major investigative study of 31 countries, was released today by Global Integrity, an award-winning international nonprofit organization that tracks governance and corruption trends globally.

Twenty-nine countries out of a 31-country* sample scored less than 60 on a 100-point scale on questions assessing the effectiveness of laws regulating individual and corporate donations to political parties, as well as the auditing of those donations and campaign expenditures. Government monitoring agencies tasked with enforcing such laws typically lack investigative power and often have little to no authority to impose sanctions.

The United States scored just 29 out of 100 on the effectiveness of its party financing regulations and 25 out of 100 in its ability to effectively regulate contributions made to individual political candidates. Those scores represent a significant decrease from 2009, the last year Global Integrity covered the US, and reflect the negative impact of the "Citizens United" Supreme Court decision in early-2010 that loosened the controls over private money flowing into US elections. Despite that backsliding, the US remains at the head of the pack when it comes to the disclosure of political finance information to the public (94 out of 100).

"We remain deeply concerned by the lack of progress globally on effectively regulating the flow of large sums of private money into the elections process in many countries," said Global Integrity's Executive Director, Nathaniel Heller. "Political financing remains the number one corruption risk around the world, and absent meaningful reforms will continue to hinder many other open government and transparency initiatives," said Heller.

The Global Integrity Report: 2011, which seeks to assess the medicine applied against corruption rather than the actual disease of corruption at the national level, also assessed other areas of government transparency and accountability. These include conflicts of interest regulations, freedom of the press, and law enforcement accountability.

It covers developed countries such as the U. S., Ireland, and Germany as well as dozens of the world's emerging markets and developing nations, from Algeria to Ukraine to China. Rather than measure perceptions of corruption, the report assesses the accountability mechanisms and transparency measures in place (or not) to prevent corruption through 320 "Integrity Indicators" as well as journalistic reporting of corruption. Gaps in those safeguards suggest where corruption is more likely to occur.

Other major findings of the report include the following:

Please note that although offices are situated in Cape Town, South Africa was not included in the latest report.

Apartheid State

by Rev Christo Heiberg (Canada)

The other day a good friend referred in passing to modern Israel as an "apartheid state". That piqued my curiosity. I have heard this before. Former president Jimmy Carter even wrote a book called "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid". So what is an apartheid state? I decided to do some googling. Lo and behold there was much more to read than a busy reformed pastor can afford to spend his time on. One thing is sure enough though: Labeling Israel as an apartheid state amounts to political blasphemy of the worst kind. for Israel's friends at least. In fact, there hardly is a worse stigma in the world today, than the stigma of apartheid.

I should know since I have carried that stigma for many years, having lived there for close to forty years. In fact I know very few Afrikaners who have not carried the heavy burden of that stigma in one way or another. The world for some reason has decided this is it. This is the lowest level any society could ever descend to, notwithstanding the fact that we basicaly inherited the system of racial segregation from our colonial past.

This stigma that was South Africa was obvious in so many ways. South Africa was about the only country against which the old cold war enemies could ever unite against, backed by the rest of the world. Not even present day North Korea, Iran or Syria can boast that achievement 25 years after the cold war. White South Africa was the only country againts which text-book terrorism was considered perfectly legitimate by the civilized West - and still is - as long as the enemy was the "apartheid state". South Africa was the only country that was ever banned from the Olympic Games for three decades. It was the only country whose citizens were denied visas to most other countries for a whole generation. It was also the only Western country that had to fight a drawn-out war against Soviet backed guerillas amidst an oil and arms embargo imposed by its "allies". And so we can go on and on.

Just how odious this little Afrikaner nation has become and how unforgivable her political transgressions were, is further illustrated by the following: The second half of the twentieth century has seen many cases of national apologies being made about war crimes and genocides to the descendants of its victims, in an effort to heal the deep festering wounds of the past. One sad exception is the refusal of the Turks to confess the brutal genocide of a million Armenians just over a century ago. Around the same time though, the mighty British Empire committed unspeakable atrocities on the prairies of South Africa against the world's smallest white nation, because this tiny nation happened to stumble upon a big pot of gold! Yet no British apology has ever come forth for the forced starvation of 28 000 innocent women and children in British concentration camps between 1900 and 1902, in spite of the fact that all Britain blushed in shock and shame when it was revealed. The only reason - I presume - for the absence of an apology is the fact that the poor victims happened to be. Afrikaners! In fact the British Commonwealth's nonchalant attitude toward this forgotten war crime is well illustrated by the fact that a proud Canadian city could name itself after the main perpetrator, Lord Horatio Kitchener!

The extent of the international demonizing of white South Africa is further illustrated by the following statistics. A study conducted in 1977 revealed that the five primary news outlets in the United Sates; the New York Times, Washington Post, CBS, NBC, and ABC - while running among them only a single story on North Korea, seven on Cuba, and sixteen on Cambodia and its Khmer Rouge - ran a monstrous 513 stories condemning South Africa during 1976!

So what is an "apartheid state" then? Let us ask a fierce critic who knew the old South Africa from the inside, Richard Goldstone, a former justice of the South African constitutional court and currently on the payroll of the United Nations. Under the heading "Israel and the Apartheid Slander" Goldstone went on to say the following in the New York Times last November: "While apartheid can have a broader meaning, its use is meant to evoke the situation in pre-1994 South Africa. It is an unfair and inaccurate slander against Israel, calculated to retard rather than to advance the peace negotiations" (emphasis mine).

Goldstone continues: "I know all too well the cruelty of South Africa's abhorrent apartheid system, under which human beings characterized as black had no rights to vote, hold political office, use "white" toilets or beaches, marry whites, live in whites-only areas or even be there without a "pass". Blacks critically injured were left to bleed to death if there was no "black" ambulance to rush them to a "black" hospital. "White" hospitals were prohibited from saving their lives".

So that is the horror that is apartheid. It's not my intent to defend apartheid and its sad legacy of statutory racial discrimination here, but to expose Goldstone and the world's grotesque hypocrisy. For the sake of brevity, we'll focus on his last statement, that "blacks critically injured (were) left to bleed to death" since there was supposedly "no black ambulance to rush them to a black hospital". I wonder just how many such cases Judge Goldstone was honestly aware of? I am almost certain such cases were rare. A close relative of mine, having entered the South African medical world in 1979 - working in emergency units of public hospitals across the country - cannot recall a single incident where life or limb was ever saved or lost on the basis of the patient's skin.

What I do know is that there were more hospitals and ambulances operating in South Africa serving our African population than in the whole of Africa at the time. The biggest hospital in the world was right there in Soweto with 3200 beds, 8 000 staff at its peak, 23 operation theatres and a host of medical doctors, funded by white taxpayers money! This is just one of the countless apartheid stories that Goldstone prefers to omit and which many ordinary Africans my age are longing back for today, not to mention clean water, safe beaches, unplugged toilets, employment opportunities, much safer neighborhoods, etc. I also remember occasionally going with my dad to the university where he taught for twenty years, built in one of the "homelands" for our African people. It never occurred to me as I beheld the impressive campus nestled away in such beautiful surroundnings, or as I walked through the state of the art auditorium and cafeteria, that it was all part of a "cruel and abhorent system" aimed at oppression. But then what else can you expect from a "brainwashed" Afrikaner kid?

The "cruel and abhorrent apartheid system" is further exonerated by the following staggering truth. At the start of his BBC documentary series "The War of the World", Harvard historian Niall Ferguson makes the telling statement that the 20th Century was one long war of savagery motivated by racism among other things. What the Japanese did to the Koreans and the Chinese, what the Turks did to the Armenians and the Greeks, what the Russians did to the Slavs and Polish and other minorities, and later to the poor fleeing Germans, what the Nazi's did to the Jews and the Polish and many others, what the British did to Dresden and Hamburg and the Americans to Hiroshima and Nagasaki, what Mao did to his own people, and the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia, what Saddam Hussein did to the Kurds, what the Hutu's did to the Tutsi's and the Balkan peoples to each other, was in every instance motivated by some form of racism! The attacker viewing his enemy as an inferior race, or as Ferguson alledges, "vermin"! Whether Ferguson's thesis is correct is the reader's to decide, but one obvious fact strikes you if you are an Afrikaner: We did not make his list! We truly feature nowhere in six hours of 20th century sordid savagery! And that while the "racist abhorrent apartheid system" had all the means at its disposal - a pretty mighty army - and while its people had every reason to feel "justified" doing it, considering what happened to colonial Europeans throughout the rest of Africa.

The "cruel and abhorrent apartheid system" is also exonerated by Nigel Cawthorne's book on "History's Most Evil Despots and Dictators". You will find all sorts of ghosts from Akhenaten to Gaddafi in there, from nearly every nation under the sun, and up to 40 tyrants belonging to the 20th century alone. But again, among nine 20th Century African tyrants not a single Afrikaner name is found! And that while they ruled South Africa for almost 90 years! Truly astonishing!

Is it not also revealing that Mr. Nelson Mandela, convicted for acts of terorism, could emerge out of 27 years of imprisonmnet by this "cruel and abhorrent apartheid system" well enough to lead his country with dignity for five years. Survival beyond a few years in the notorious Chikurubi maximum security prison in Zimbabwe - of a mere political opponent of Robert Mugabe - will be considered a sheer miracle.

All of this as I have said is no defense of apartheid but an indictment of the world's unashamed hypocrisy that shows no sign of abating. One white farmer per week is being murdered in South Africa today (often in the greatest brutality), making it the most dangerous job under heaven on the planet since the end of apartheid. Western governments and its news media for the most part deliberately turn a blind eye to the killing fields. A Flemish lobby group in Brussels is doing its utmost to force this slowly growing genocide of white South Africans onto the European Parliament's radar asking a solemn question: "Hoeveel moeten er sterven voordat u de stilte breekt?" (How many must die before you will break the silence?)

The stigma of my country clung to me for the best part of my life. It does so no more. When one of my sons recently returned from a visit to the old country sporting a T-shirt with a Boer-War warrior on his chest, I felt extremely proud. Twenty years ago I would have blushed. However, what saddens me most today is not the injustice of apartheid, nor even a looming genocide, but how a God-fearing people of three centuries could forsake the Fountain of living waters, only to hewn for themselves cisterns that can hold no water. That is the true tragedy of the Afrikaner and the deepest loss of my country.
