Why Africa Check failed to disprove Steve Hofmeyr - Whites ARE dying like flies

The media has been deliberately suppressing the truth about the murders, rapes and other atrocities in South Africa since 1994.

This suppression has been growing to the extent that certain groups and the media have been targeting prominent human rights activists like Steve Hofmeyr, Sunette Bridges, Dr. Dan Roodt and others, discrediting and ridiculing them.

Off course while the South African media has always praised overseas singers and artists for their human rights efforts, typically the same media has been demonising local singers and artists for their human rights activism. This has always been the case and is standard procedure for the South African media.

How this is done is best summarised as follows:
"Negative publicity are quickly reported on with the extent and seriousness of the issue white-washed to be quickly ignored for further scrutiny and buried in the cemetery of Consequenter. Think of Obama’s Fast & Furious scandal or Benghazi or the IRS scandal or…or…or…Think of how various reports by the Public Protector on DA controlled municipalities are swept under the rug and made out as less than what they actually are.

Criticism and detractors of the person [in the case of South Africa, the ANC government] is dealt with quickly, harshly and in the most vicious manner often resulting in character assassination, threats and personal insult. There are many examples of this available today – MSNBC’s Chris Matthews and CNN’s Piers Morgan are masters at the above when any criticism is levelled at Barack Obama’s Administration with the racism card being played often as an ad hominem audi alteram partum. The UK Media and UK Government’s treatment of the EDL, Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer whom are all anti-Islamisation of Western Society. In South Africa we have Naspers’ media arm Media24 who has appointed themselves as the guardians of what may and may not be said by independent thinkers and Conservatives about Mandela, the ANC and the DA. They often employ the services of ideological hit-men or groupings such as AfricaCheck – which is funded by George Soros’ Soros Foundations – Max du Preez, Leopoldt Scholtz and Tim du Plessis with a sprinkling of lesser opinionadas covering the rear guard. Naspers very often censors the opinions of counter-thinking individuals skirting the SA Press Code, International Council for Press and Broadcasting and the right to free speech entrenched in the SA Constitution." - The Cult Personality & Idolatry
In the latest, most publicised attack on Steve Hofmeyr, initiated by the new kid on the block, Africa Check, the media went out of their way to discredit and ridicule Steve Hofmeyr as much as possible. (See "Related Articles")

Throughout the article Africa Check tried to ridicule Steve Hofmeyr with immature assertions like "non-experts to support some form of race-based conspiracy theory", "a race-crime mythology", accusing him of making "sweeping statements" and so forth, which certainly is not becoming of an organisation hoping to earn respect as "fact-check" experts .

So Who is Africa Check?

Trust is earned through the test of time, not through marketing and self-acclaim. Africa Check has, by their own admission, only been in existence for short while, yet they proclaim themselves trustworthy beyond reproach?

Africa Check proclaims themselves "a non-partisan organisation that exists to fact-check claims made in the public arena, impartially and fairly, and publish the results."

As can be seen from their page "How we are funded", Africa Check is funded by exclusively liberal sources, most of which also supported the ANC pre-1994. They are also funded by none other than the Open Society Foundation for South Africa (See the members of the Board) founded by the infamous George Soros (For more information on Soros, see "Further Reading")

While our human rights activists in question are self-funded and independent, Africa Check cannot claim the same. Africa Check has to remain politically correct in accordance with the prescribed agenda and bound by the guidelines of their sponsors, such as George Soros, the Vienna based International Press Institute and WITS Journalism. If Africa Check is considered as being "non-partisan" then surely the Cosatu and State-owned Independent News and Media SA should also be considered "non-partisan".

Africa Check is dependent upon its liberal sponsors for their salaries and very existence.

"non-partisan"? and "impartial"?

Being sponsored, and particularly being exclusively sponsored by leftist-liberal sponsors, Africa Check is not in any position to proclaim themselves "non-partisan", "impartial", independent or objective. Who, but they themselves, appointed Africa Check the experts to "fact-check" others anyway?

Africa Check proclaims: "We seek, over time, to check all sides in any debate and we base our reports on fact not opinion." Yet, in the case of Steve Hofmeyr, we find no evidence of checking "all sides in any debate", we find rather a direct insulting attack on the credibility and integrity of Mr Hofmeyr.

As put in one of the comments to Africa Check's article: "I think this website could be an important tool for civil society in Africa. To do that, however, it needs to establish its credibility. The only way it will achieve that is if it sticks to cold, empirical facts. It seems that most of the content is being supplied by journalists who are trained to find a story. As a result, the pieces posted on here have emotive, newspaper-ish headlines like “Why Steve Hofmeyr is Wrong” and contain paragraphs of journalistic waffle that is unnecessary for the purpose of verifying the fact and ultimately winds up expressing an opinion." - By John

The truth is that South Africa really does need a non-partisan, impartial, unbiased organisation that could "fact-check". Had Africa Check been sponsored by Republicans from the US and by conservative groups and organisations, the SA media would have laughed them off, but because they all tend to be leftist liberal, this makes the liberal sponsored Africa Check "respectable."  Such an organisation should be above reproach, not be answerable to anyone, not be "politically correct" and not be "owned" by financial sponsors from only either the left or the right. It should consist of representatives from all sides, not just the left as is the case with Africa Check.

Now while Africa Check has a right to their biased opinion that dares to ask "Where does Hofmeyr get his information?", should we then not also be allowed to ask ...

Where does Africa Check get their information?

Africa Check says "The interpretation of data on “farm attacks” is problematic as it relies on old police data and current, self-reported data collected and submitted by the Transvaal Agricultural Union of South Africa (TAUSA).", but where do they get their data from?

Crime statistics in South Africa are obtained primarily from two sources, the SA Police and Statistics SA. All analysis published by other sources are based on the figures supplied by the SA Police and Stats SA.

The question is, how trustworthy are the SA Police and Stats SA?
  • "Discovery of unrecorded post-mortem reports and allegations of police negligence and manipulation of crime figures" - Cloud over murder statistics
  • "Kirstenhof police are on a witch-hunt for the officer who leaked information about cooked crime statistics" - Cops gun for snitch
  • a new study by the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation finds a “pervasive pattern of (police) manipulation of the statistics” - The great scourges
  • "it is reasonable to assume that there should be some correlation between trends in attempted murder and trends in murder. How then to account for the fact that attempted murder is decreasing at a rate five times greater than murder? If the reduction is a result of government efforts to reduce violent crime, how is it that the SAPS, or the criminal justice system, or government more generally, were able to reduce attempted murder so dramatically, but not murder itself?"
    "current violent crime statistics cannot be relied on as an indicator of trends in violent crime." 
    "In recent years there have been persistent reports in the press about the 'cooking of crime statistics' by police. In a selection of press articles on the matter, 13 allegations relating to such manipulation are made in relation to five of South Africa's nine provinces. In this selection of press articles, eleven different police stations in the Western Cape, four stations in Gauteng, one station in KwaZulu-Natal and one station in Limpopo are alleged to have manipulated crime statistics." - The Reliability of violent crime statistics in South Africa - David Bruce - SA Crime Quarterly 2010 (.pdf)
  • SA sees SAPS as most corrupt within the state - Corruption Watch survey
  • About 83% of South Africans believed that police were corrupt. In the Global Corruption Barometer 2013, South Africa was among 36 countries in which the police was seen as the most corrupt institution - 83% believe SAPS is corrupt - survey
  • Findings on corruption amongst SAPS members suggested that:
  • South Africa's police force seems rotten to the core - riddled with corruption, crime, dirty tricks, political machinations and even murder - Something very rotten
    Corruption Watch executive director David Lewis said the findings confirmed that the increase in corruption was “not a mere perception” - Country Corruption Assessment Report South Africa .pdf (July 12 2013)
  • Four top Limpopo police officers have appeared in court for allegedly manipulating crime statistics in Tzaneen - Cops held for manipulating crime stats 
  • "In 2009 reports of numerous instances of manipulation of crime statistics by ‘a substantial number’ of police stations surfaced in the media. That year 12 officials of the Mountain Rise police station in KwaZulu-Natal were charged with tampering with crime statistics. The station had received a R500 000 bonus for being the top station in the reduction of crime. The Independent Complaints Directorate (ICD) found 170 unregistered dockets hidden in a room at the station. In the Western Cape the ICD investigated 1 000 dockets after receiving complaints that police were registering complaints as inquiries rather than criminal cases on the police database to keep down crime figures."

  • In 2012 Dianne Kohler Barnard, the DA's Shadow Minister of Police, said:  "The current method of collecting, collating and reporting South Africa’s crime statistics means that few people trust the figures reported by the Minister each year. The problems with our crime statistics are manifold:  It is not clear if they are valid as they do not provide an accurate picture of the crime situation;  they are not reliable;  they are open to manipulation; and the statistics are out of date." - DA to propose crime statistics overhaul 
  • Crime statistics published by the South African Police Service show that carjacking decreased dramatically by 23.6%, truck hijacking reduced by 29.2%, and theft of motor vehicles and motorcycles are down by 10.1%.  Carjacking decreased in all provinces, except the Northern Cape. The decreases varied between 39.8% in Mpumalanga and 13% in the Eastern Cape. It was hard to pinpoint the exact reasons for the decline, said Johan Burger, senior researcher for the crime and justice programme at the Institute of Security Studies. Auto and General Insurance's claims reflected an increase in the number of hijackings across South Africa, said its spokesperson, Angelo Haggiyannes. "Hijacking remains an ever-growing threat to South Africans …. So while & General noticed the number of stolen vehicles dropping, hijackings continue to increase." - Hijacking claims are down
  • See the sudden decrease in 2010 to make things look good in anticipation of the Soccer World Cup 2010 - Theft of Motor Vehicle and Motorcycle Reported Cases
Besides people like David Bruce and others, Unisa criminologist, Professor Rudolph Zinn ranks among the most respected crime experts in South Africa (See "Further Reading") and this is what he had to say about SA crime statistics in this most important article:
  • He said the statistics document was “farcical”..; Zinn said it was virtually impossible to determine the true picture in categories such as murder.; “Some murders are listed and others are not. This is because some people think certain kinds of murders, such as farm killings, are not important."; “It is like rape. They say it is down, yet it is not listed anywhere in the document,”; “Serious questions must be asked, especially of police stations that record sudden, major, unexplained decreases."; “Housebreaking was under- reported by 41%, house robbery by 44% and stock theft by 64%, yet police report decreases in these crimes,” - Read The “resounding” successes of crime stats were immediately shot down by experts.
The list goes on and on and on... Quoting from each and every source would require a book and more examples can therefore be found in listed in the links under "Further Reading".

SA Police data, particularly new and current data, is so incomplete and unreliable that private individuals like Sunette Bridges, Adriana Stuijt, community forums like Farmitracker and organisations like the Transvaal Agricultural Union of South Africa (TAUSA), took it upon themselves, using their own time and resources, to try and gather information on attacks and murders from the limited number of reports in the media and from the families of victims. Conservative as their collected data may be, it is still jarring.
(Please note that in their attempts to hide and deny the murders on whites, liberals and the media have been using their contacts and resources to close down the Facebook pages, blogs and websites of people like Sunette Bridges and Adriana Stuijt, which list the names and circumstances relating to white murder victims.)

At least "McCafferty acknowledged himself." "several significant flaws in the presentation and interpretation of data", while Africa Check, in spite of all of the above, declares themselves flawless and beyond reproach with the statement that "All the independent security and research experts we consulted for this report agreed that current murder figures provided by the South Africa Police Service (SAPS) should be considered accurate."

Africa Check has "trouble with apartheid-era data"(?) based on their own assumptions, while it is quite obvious that the crime statistics they chose and presented as "accurate" according to their experts, are completely and utterly untrustworthy and not worth the paper it was written on, which in itself wipes Africa Check's article from the table in its entirety and destroys their own credibility without any outside help.

Rather than quoting many available examples, the following two quotes should suffice for showing just how untrustworthy Stats SA are (See "Further Reading" for many more examples):

By 2008 the total death figure had increased to 592 073. I did not bother to check any further. A 57 percent increase in deaths, while "Population growth could account for approximately 10% of this increase." and no one questions this? So what then are our population and our murder figures really? What are the causes of the ever increasing number of deaths in the country?

It is disappointing that an organisation that could have made a difference would attack Steve Hofmeyr and deny the murders on South Africans based on such untrustworthy data.

Africa Check had themselves reported that "Census 2011: StatsSA failed the open data test". They also reported that "SA police face R14 billion in civil lawsuits, not R7 billion as reported".

As a result Africa Check cannot claim ignorance about the untrustworthy state of South African crime statistics and yet, while 83% of South Africans believe that the SA police is corrupt, Africa Check found it appropriate to use their untrustworthy statistics to deny the murders of South Africans.

While independent crime experts refer to the the SA Polce crime statics as “farcical” and publicly state that “Some murders are listed and others are not.", Africa Check finds it appropriate to use those very same statistics to deny the murders of South Africans.

By knowingly using untrustworthy data for the basis of their denial about the true state of murders in South Africa, Africa Check failed in their claim that they are "a non-partisan organisation that exists to fact-check claims made in the public arena, impartially and fairly," 

Based on the above, clearly showing that the SA Police and Stats SA's data are completely untrustworthy, Africa Check's article must therefore be dismissed in its entirety.

Who’s claims about white murders really are grossly incorrect?

Obviously, based on the above, this article does not deserve any further attention, but we need to set the record straight and particularly on the ridiculous claim that only 6,498 whites have been murdered since 1994 and that whites supposedly account for only 1.8% of murders in South Africa.

Before we continue it is important to note that, notwithstanding the corruption in Stats SA, in their defence and in defence of statisticians generally, it must be pointed out that they are only able to work with the information and data they receive. Stats SA can only analyse that which is before them and they are therefore stuck with a "garbage-in-garbage-out" situation for which they cannot be blamed. The same applies to statisticians generally.

Africa Check on the other hand states that "All the independent security and research experts we consulted for this report agreed that current murder figures provided by the South Africa Police Service (SAPS) should be considered accurate.", which means that they do not deserve any defence. Are we to accept this data as accurate, because Africa Check and their experts, say so?

Africa Check goes on to use one part of one sentence from the entire section on Safety of youth, which spans some three pages in Chapter 12, Building safer communities, of the National Development Plan.

They strengthen their false assertion that only 6,498 (1.8%) whites have been murdered since 1994 by stating as "fact" that "The current murder rate of white South Africans is also equivalent to, or lower than, murder rates for whites recorded between 1979 and 1991." 

What Africa Check omits to mention is that further down in the same NDP report it is stated that "The majority of the victims whose race could be established were Africans followed by coloureds and whites." Please note "whose race could be established".

The SA Police's dockets are so incomplete that out of a tiny sample of only 1378 murder dockets, the race of nine victims could not be established. It could therefore be possible that those nine victims were white, which would already have taken the percentage of whites murdered up to 2,5%, from 1.8%.

In a further six cases the gender was unknown and in 173 cases the age of the victim (some of which they could perhaps be excused for) was unknown, which means that the SA Police would have had to charge someone for murder, while not even knowing the age, the gender or race of a particular victim? No wonder we have a pathetic murder conviction rate of only some 10%.

Africa check quotes from the NDP, without referencing the original study, because while the NDP document references the "Mid-year population estimates: 2009", it also does not reference the original study from which this information was supposedly obtained.

Africa Check has obviously never seen the original study.

Africa Check has no clue as to:
  • Why this study was done;
  • What the purpose and objective for this study was;
  • How the dockets were sampled;
  • Whether the dockets were sampled in proportion to the populations of each of the nine SA provinces;
  • How many of the 1 116 SA Police precincts that existed at the time were included (increased to 1 125 since);
  • Whether the sampling of dockets were weighted based on murder hot spots like the Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal or not;
  • From which period the dockets were sampled;
  • Whether the dockets were sampled from all murder dockets between 1652 and 2008, 1948 to 1994, 1990 to 1994, 1994 to 2008, 2008 only, or the latest murder dockets being handled at the time of the study;
Each of the above would produce vastly different results.

Had the SA Police actually done their work, there would have been no need for a "sample analysis" of this kind, because all the information calculated from the mere 1378 dockets would have been readily available in detail and would have been made available with each publication of crime figures. Unfortunately the SA Police dockets are too incomplete to do this, which forces statisticians into drawing samples to try and get some idea of the crime situation in South Africa.

I consulted a senior lecturer in Statistics at one of our local universities to check the maths and particularly the probabilities of the farcical conclusions arrived at in the Africa Check article, but then realised I was a wasting his time, because based on the information already provided thus far, the maths in the Africa Check document is comparable to Ma and Pa Kettle's Maths and that each and every single statement in their article must be dismissed as rubbish.

South Africa's criminal justice data

As can be seen from the following quotes, South Africa's criminal justice data is in such shambles that it is virtually impossible to make any sense of it.

  • "How many reported crimes result in convictions? The answer would tell us how well the South African criminal justice system (CJS) functions. The current information provided by the annual reports of the police, justice department and correctional services don't provide the answer. This is because each department records different information in ways that cannot be linked."
  • "Five years later we still struggle to make sense of criminal justice data"
  • "When the 2011/2012 Annual Report of the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) is examined, it becomes clear that there is no way to link the police statistics to those of the NPA."
  • "the statistics continue to be collected and reported in a compartmentalised way and do not speak each to other." - The Problem with South African Criminal Justice Performance Indicators 25 October 2012
South Africa's conviction rate for murders ranges between only 10% and 12.7%. Only 12.7% of murders in SA’s crime hot spots end in convictions. “84% of murder and attempted murder cases originating from five gang hotspots in the Western Cape end in acquittals.”, which impacts directly upon murder statistics.
- Crime conviction rates in SA (10.6% - 2006)
- Conviction rate for murder 12.6% - Kohler Barnard (2007/08 SAPS Annual Report)
- Crime statistics – ‘It’s not safe here’ - 22 September 2012
- Expert: Low rate of murder convictions in South Africa (less than 10% - 2013)

Murder statistics are influenced by convictions. Each time a case against a person charged with murder is dismissed or changed to a lesser conviction such a culpable homicide, it affects the murder statistics. Cases take years to complete, while murdered statistics are published in the meantime, albeit six months late on average and only once a year.

Please be reminded that at no stage does Africa Check admit that they were basing their denial on untrustworthy, let alone completely “farcical” crime statistics. While Africa Check has the audacity to accuse Steve Hofmeyr of making "several sweeping statements about South Africa’s murder rate" it should be clear by now that the entire Africa Check article is nothing other than a compilation of "several sweeping statements".

Misclassification of Deaths

Misclassification of death has a serious direct impact upon the accuracy of statistics relating to cause of death. To demonstrate just how worthless South African data really is, I wish to presented the following unrelated, yet excellent example:

While the media is singing the praise of the SA government's claims that South Africa is winning the battle against HIV/AIDS and how fewer and fewer people have been dying from HIV/AIDS in this country, the results of a truly a groundbreaking study published by the World Health Organisation in February 2011 confirmed, "the substantial misclassification of HIV/AIDS deaths in South Africa’s vital registration system reported in the literature." It then validates this statement with the following shocking revelation "While audits of death records in selected areas in 2003–2004 have shown that 53–73% of HIV/AIDS deaths do not explicitly record HIV/AIDS as the underlying cause of death, this study suggests that during 1996–2006 as many as 94% of all HIV/AIDS deaths in the country were being misclassified" - Exposing misclassified HIV/AIDS deaths in South Africa Published online: 17 February 2011

South Africa has also seen a 400 per cent increase in TB cases over the past 15 years, and more than 70 per cent of patients are co-infected with HIV. - Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) programme in Khayelitsha

And yes you read correctly, "94% [NINETY FOUR PERCENT] of all HIV/AIDS deaths in the country were being misclassified." But why could this be?

Obviously, where an ostensible victory over HIV/AIDS could secure more donations, a perceived futility could see major universal donation fatigue.

The NPD document from which Africa Check selected only part of one sentence upon which to build their denial states that "it is clear that more attention should be given to the causal factors of homicides.", but is this possible if the causes of death are not recorded correctly?

South Africa's top 10 causes of death, according to Stats SA 2008 were:
1st place - Ill-defined and unknown causes:  80 515 (13,6%)
5th place - Other external causes of accidental injury: 33 983 (5,7%)

Garbage codes in mortality data are those codes which do not signify an underlying cause of death. The underlying cause of death means; "the disease or injury that started the sequence of events leading directly to death or the circumstances of the accident or violence that produced the fatal injury."

In 2008 a total of 592 073 deaths were recorded in South Africa. Almost one third, 29.5% or 174 872, of the total number of deaths were recorded as garbage categories.

But what about the misclassification of external cause of deaths (e.g. hunting accident or interpersonal violence) due to injury (e.g. gunshot wound on the head)?

A 2012 document published by Statistics South Africa states that "Currently, the circumstances (manner, external cause and intent) of almost half of the injury deaths in South Africa are unknown."

To be more specific "in 47% of injuries the specific external cause is unknown", external cause being "hunting accident or interpersonal violence"

Once again you read it correctly. In 47.1%, almost half, of all injury deaths the external cause is unknown. - Cause of Death Certification: A guide for completing the Notice of Death/Stillbirth (DHA-1663), Pali Lehohla, Statistician-General, Statistics South Africa, 2012

And yet Africa Check says "All the independent security and research experts we consulted for this report agreed that current murder figures provided by the South Africa Police Service (SAPS) should be considered accurate."?

From the above it should be quite obvious that South Africa's murder figures are grossly incorrect and grossly understated.

Based on the above, Africa Check's ridiculous assertion that only 6,498 whites have been murdered and that whites supposedly account for only 1.8% of murders in South Africa must be dismissed with the contempt it deserves.

White Murders at the hands of Blacks

In a politically correct attempt to deny that whites are being murdered by blacks in South Africa, Africa Check asserts that "Even if the proportion of “outsider” crime was doubled for white homicide victims, this would still fall drastically short of the “77.3%” of white murders that Hofmeyr appears to claim are at the hands of black perpetrators."

Firstly, I could not find any evidence of any study ever conducted where SA Police dockets of white murder victims were sampled to determine the race of their murderers in an attempt to disprove that whites are being murdered mostly by blacks.

Secondly, Africa Check used the SAPS annual report 2011/2012, which we have already shown to be farcical and virtually worthless.

Thirdly, in an attempt to strengthen their misleading assertion, Africa Check then goes on to state that "The 2012 Victims of Crime Survey confirmed this assertion", while it is clearly stated on page 61 of the said survey, under the heading "10.11 Reliability of the survey estimates", that;
  • "statistics related to specific crimes should be analysed and used with caution. Crimes that are relatively rare – such as murder – resulted in very few cases in the database and submitting these to too detailed analysis, will provide unreliable results."
  • "Specific categories of crime, such as sexual assault, were generally under-reported in this survey and it should not be regarded as an accurate source of sexual assault data."
Fourthly, quoting Ilana Mercer ;
"in the research for my book I uncovered data according to which,  at 76.6 percent of the population, blacks committed 76.4 percent of “intimate femicides” (defined as “the killing of a female person by an intimate partner”). And they committed 68.3 percent of “non-intimate femicides”: “the killing of a woman by someone other than an intimate partner.”

Whites have proven woefully inadequate to the task of filling their pro-rata crime quotas (page 38). At less than nine percent of the population and dwindling, the corresponding numbers for white South Africans were 3.9 and 2.6 percent respectively.

With respect to incarceration rates, whites "underperformed" again. According to the South African Department of Correctional Services, 113,773 criminals had been sentenced as of June 2008, of whom only 2,190 were white.
[Notwithstanding the fact that whites account for 8.9% of the total population] Whites make up only 1.9 percent of the number of sentenced criminals.

Weighing in with 90,013 sentenced individuals — approximately 79.1 percent of the total number of criminals sentenced — blacks more than filled their per-population crime allotment."
- Blade runner killing and the media blackout
- Into the Cannibal's Pot: Lessons for America from Post-Apartheid South Africa - Ilana Mercer

Ridiculously, Africa Check denies that whites are being murdered mostly by blacks. So Who is doing the Killing then? Are they perhaps trying to create the perception that whites are behind the committing of these xenophobic killings? That whites are being murdered by whites, while we can barely calculate the number of whites convicted for murder each year?

Is Africa Check also trying to suggest that whites are committing the corrective rapes on lesbians, that whites are raping babies in an attempt to cure themselves of HIV/AIDS? Or is Africa Check trying to suggest that whites are committing the rapes and therefore rapists have a 99% chance of getting away with their crimes?

Given the above we have to conclude that Africa Check's misleading politically correct assertion that whites are not being murdered mostly by blacks, must be dismissed.

Drugs and Crime in South Africa
  • According to SAPS figures, 60 percent of crimes nationally were related to substance abuse. In the Western Cape, the figure was closer to 80 percent.
  • Alcohol consumption in South Africa is among the 10 highest in the world. 1.9 million South Africans are alcoholics, 37% of the population are binge drinkers and 10% are classified "risky drinkers".
  • 67% of domestic violence in the Cape Metropolitan area was alcohol related (MRC).
  • In a study of women abused by their spouses, 69% identified alcohol/drug abuse as the main cause of conflict leading to the abuse (MRC).
  • 76% of domestic violence in rural areas in the South-Western Cape was found to be alcohol related (MRC).
  • Half of all murders were the result of drunkenness (MRC).
  • Approximately 40% of firearm and 58% of blunt instrument homicide victims have consumed alcohol prior to their fatal injury.
  • Almost 80% of all assault patients - both male and female - presented at an urban hospital Trauma Unit in Cape Town were either found to be under the influence of alcohol or injured because of alcohol related violence.
  • Even in the analysis of the 1 378 murder dockets referred to by Africa Check and the NDP, it was found that at least 28.2 percent of the victims had used alcohol or drugs prior to the incident.
  • Tik usage has nearly doubled in the last year increasing by 88% and Cat usage increased by 82%.
  • There are links between the growing gangsterism and the illicit trade in drugs
  • A study conducted in 2009 also indicates the use of drugs among teenagers had increased over the last 10 years by more than 600%.
(See "Drugs and Crime" under Reference List)

Notwithstanding the fact that 'SA has lost the war on drugs' evidenced by at least a 600% increase in drug abuse over the last ten years (which continues to rise year-on-year) and the clear link between substance abuse and crime, including murder and assault, miraculously South Africa still claims an annual decrease in crime over the same period. If this was possible, let alone true, then South Africa should patent their formula and sell it to security agencies in all other countries of the world.

The forgotten victims of attacks that the media choose to ignore

Six out of seven people shot with a handgun survive. Only 5% survive gunshot wounds to the head, with only 3% achieving a good quality of life afterwards. An ex-colleague of my son's entire family was wiped out by what the media continues to call "robbers". Three black gunmen fired 14 shots at their bodies. His brother died within a week of taking six bullets during the brutal armed assault and his mother died within one month from three bullets during the armed attack, while his father survived the three gunshot wounds, only to die from complications more than seven months later. The son's girlfriend survived a gunshot injury to her leg.

We usually only hear of the armed assault victims who died at the scene or during the initial hospital stay. In cases such as the father who died seven months later, it is seldom classified as murder or death due to gunshot injury. In most cases the cause of death would be misclassified, not indicating murder or even due to gunshot injury.

More than this, while most patients survive (do not immediately die from) gunshot wounds most will eventually die from their gunshot wounds to the torso, pelvis, neck and head, many months or even many years later. A person is never the same after a gunshot wound and they are usually in and out of hospital for the rest of their lives.

While many patients do not die soon after attacks with guns, knives, pangas (machetes) and other dangerous objects, they are often left paralysed, end up as vegetables, mentally and emotionally unstable, blind, deaf, left without a leg or arm, many even committing suicide later on. Many victims are so injured and so maimed for life that they might as well be considered dead, because they have no quality of life afterwards.

The best example of this must be Foresaken Hero Cherise Cox - Shot Policewoman Cast Aside By Metro Police who battled without quality of life until her death almost ten years after having been shot during an armed robbery committed by four black gunmen of the “Shezi gang”. Of course this is not the kind of story that would draw any kind or interest from Africa Check and their kind, but to us mere average white South Africans these cases actually matter. While Africa Check makes it their business to deny the murdering of whites, we make it our business to make the world aware of it.

There are many more attacks than victims dying from those attacks and while the media is doing their utmost best to deny the murder figures, they ignore these assault victims completely. The South African criminal justice data is in such shambles that virtually 100% of the victims who die later on fall through the cracks.

Just with regards to farm attacks alone, Treurgrond describes the attacks on at least 5 818 direct victims over the period 1990 to 2012.

As a matter of interest, one article claimed that between 77% (house) and 87% (business) of all robberies are armed robberies and that guns are the cause of death in more than half of all murders. If we were to deduct the comparatively small number of murders committed by owners of legally licensed firearms and and killings committed by the SA Police, which are also legally owned firearms, we find that the vast, vast majority of all armed assaults are committed with illegal firearms, a problem that is yet to be addressed in any meaningful way in this country.

From the above it should be quite obvious that Africa Check and their experts' ridiculous assertion, based on part of one sentence extracted from an entire unreferenced document, that only 6,498 whites have been murdered since 1994 and that whites supposedly account for only 1.8% of murders in South Africa must be dismissed entirely.

Apartheid era data

As for Africa Check's section under the heading "The trouble with apartheid-era data" it is not even worthy of comment. The entire section contains no facts, only assumptions, pure conjecture without any evidence and sweeping statement like "it is probable homicides was understated in official reports" and "the data is simply not reliable enough to make any accurate findings", while their own entire article is based on farcical data.

They state that "Since 1990, race has not been listed as a category in official death records." yet they are denying the white murder figures based on these very statistics?

They then shoot themselves in the foot by adding that "This deliberate omission may have been intended to avoid exactly the kind of issue raised by Hofmeyr’s claims; the interpretation of raw data by non-experts to support some form of race-based conspiracy theory. In reality, however, the absence of such information has effectively perpetuated a race-crime mythology in South Africa."

They are thereby admitting that prior to 1990, before FW de Klerk arrived on the scene, deaths were in fact classified by race, while at the same time attempting to sweep it under the carpet with the sweeping assumption, without any supporting evidence that "it is probable homicides was understated in official reports" . Africa Check may also be suggesting that the interpretation of raw data by their "experts" based on untrustworthy farcical statistics to support denial of race-based murders would be more acceptable.

At the same time Africa Check tries to create the impression that the "Apartheid Government" tried to hide black deaths by no longer listing "race as a category in official death records.", while this is exactly the reason why the current SA government, the SA Police, Africa Check and the liberal media have been avoiding race classification of crime in South Africa since 1994. Why has Africa Check not complained about this very trend being perpetuated since 1994? The non-racial classification of deaths did not start in 1990 under the "Apartheid Government" and end in 1994 under the so-called democratic ANC, it became much worse after 1994, because they have been trying to hide the murdering of whites under this government's rule.

While Steve Hofmeyr was discussing murders, Africa Check chose to draw no distinction between deaths due to political violence in South Africa before 1994 and actual murders. In their attempt to demonise pre-1994 South Africa in an effort to make the New South Africa under the ANC look good, they conveniently forgot to mention the 7000 political deaths between 1948 and 1989, 30 abductions, 38 disappearances and another 150 internal assassinations, the total of 73 deaths in detention recorded by the HRC as deaths while in the hands of the security police, the 37 who died while in custody of the uniformed police under politically-related circumstances, the 14,000 deaths and 22,000 casualties that occurred between 1990-1994 in South Africa due to political violence (mostly black-on-black), which states as 12,000 deaths without mentioning that it was black-on-black political violence.

They also omit the fact that 90% of the deaths were attributed to vigilante-style activity (Black on Black) as the two political parties engaged in a series of attacks and counter-attacks in villages, tribes, and cities. 600 deaths were the direct cause of South African police intervention and 173 deaths were believed to be acts of state-sponsored assassinations.

The 1976 riots where the number of people who died is usually given as 176 with unconfirmed estimates up to 700 and Sharpville figures were also part of the murder figures used to obscure the comparison between the old and the new South Africa.

Farm attacks

Africa Check is trying to deny the farm murders without any evidence whatsoever. Africa Check has never conducted any research into farm murders. All they have is one ten-year-old SA Police committee inquiry into farm attacks dating back to 2003 and the figures produced by the Transvaal Agricultural Union of South Africa (TAUSA).

Africa Check goes on to contradict themselves by quoting the TAUSA’s figures which clearly show that only 13.5% of the total number of people murdered on farms between 1990 and 2012 were black. The rest were white.

The only figures we have are contained in the book Treurgrond which, while considered the most comprehensive and most accurate database of South African farm murders to date, is as admitted by the publishers as being a very conservative representation of the reality at best, because  this database was compiled from reports on farm murders in the media and information obtained from farmers who are members of the Transvaal Agricultural Union (TAUSA) only. This huge task was undertaken, because the SA Police is incapable of doing so and Africa Check is too scared to even try, for fear of what they may find.

Africa Check ends off with the sweeping statement, without any evidence to the contrary, that "Hofmeyr’s statement that a white farmer is murdered every five days is therefore also incorrect. The claim would only be true if he included all farm attack victims of all races." This proves that Africa Check did not even bother to consult with TAUSA to learn that they had in fact done this in the meantime, which provided even more damning evidence showing how white farmers are being killed like flies.

In the book "Bloedsusters" written by Eileen de Jager en Roelien Schutte who run a country-wide crime clean-up service, the authors conclude from personal on site experience that farm murders are far more brutal than other murders. They also stated that they have observed a marked increase in the brutality during farm attacks.

Based on the fact that Africa Check has no research to back up their denial of white farm murder figures their conclusions must be dismissed


"Denialism and political correctness are both tacit approval and the single most important perpetuators of the murders, rapes, violent crime and corruption in South Africa. By denying that we have a rape problem, a murder problem, a high-jacking and juvenile delinquency problem we are actually stating that we have no problem." - How Liberals' Denialism Bred A Culture of Entitlement Among SA Blacks

It is obvious that the SA Police, Africa Check and other news media have much to hide about what is truly happening in the New South Africa under the ANC.

Denialism is so pervasive in the liberal media that they have lost all sense of morality.

While the killing of rhinos is an important issue, it enjoys a hundred time more exposure than the murdering and raping of hundreds of thousands of human beings in South Africa. While we often see articles about the rhino killings on the front pages of newspapers we very seldom, if ever, see any articles on the almost half a million murders under ANC rule since 1994 making the news.

Africa Check, in their anxiousness to deny the murdering of whites uses the already downward manipulated figure of 361 015 people murdered in South Africa without even flinching an eyelid, not sparing a moment to focus any attention on it.

Had this been any other country, there would have been a constant outcry from the media, the churches, human rights groups, opposition parties and NGOs, but not in South Africa. Here they choose to rather deny it than draw any attention to it.

But, If foreigners knew the truth, would South Africa still have secured 87 business conferences worth R2.6 billion between 2013 and 2017?

In any other country the media would have lashed out at their government about the scandalous state of crime, the murder and rapes as well as the inaccuracy of statistical data, but not in South Africa. Here the media and the various groups prefer using the sad state of crime statistics to assist them in protecting the false angelic image of the ANC, its leaders and the New South Africa that the very media helped to create.

So serious is the situation in South Africa that media houses should have crime, murder and rape counters running on their home pages, to draw attention and pressure the government into action.

Instead, the media is using their demonisation of activists fighting for their own people as a means to draw attention away from the murders and rapes generally. The media is not only denying the xenophobic murdering of whites, they are using their denial of it to also deny the murders of all South Africans at the same time by trying to find ways and means to further downscale the already diluted murder, rape and crime figures.

Because there is an outcry from one particular race group (particularly being the whites) making the world aware of the dangerous nature of the situation by crying out for help to stop the xenophobic murdering of their own people, their family and their friends, the media considers it their duty to jump to the defence of their beloved government by using untrustworthy crime statistics to deny the murders generally.

In South Africa the media sees themselves as the officially appointed protectors of the false angelic image of the ruling party that the media had created for them.

Conclusion - Africa Check's claims are grossly incorrect

Barbara Holtman, leader of research into crime and violence at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) said. “But in reality, we will know when we are getting safer. Not because the crime statistics tell us, but because it will become acceptable to walk alone at night, or because we worry less about our children when they are not with us, or when we are confident to use public transport.” - A society still driven by fear

Given the obvious discrepancies between claims of reducing crime figures, drastically increasing drug abuse and trafficking, the gross misclassification of causes of deaths, the inexplicable increasing number of annual recorded deaths, totally unreconcilable criminal justice data, ludicrous crime statistics and SA Police corruption, which includes unrecorded post-mortem reports and allegations of police negligence and manipulation of crime figures, all Africa Check's statements suggesting a declining, lesser or lower post-1994 murder rate, including "the [murder] rate had fallen", "The murder rate has continued to decline", "it is lower than the murder rate documented in 1970 under apartheid.", and including their statement that "Both McCafferty and Hofmeyr’s claims about murder number discrepancies must therefore be dismissed.", "Hofmeyr’s claims are incorrect and grossly exaggerated the level of killings.", the heading "Conclusion – Hofmeyr’s claims are grossly incorrect" and their closing paragraph MUST ALL THEREFORE BE DISMISSED.

In their over-anxiousness to demonise, discredit and ridicule Steve Hofmeyr, Africa Check actually discredited and ridiculed themselves, thereby showing that Africa Check must be disregarded and dismissed as a possible source of trustworthy information.

Given the above we have to conclude that Steve Hofmeyr was right, whites are being murdered like flies in South Africa. At the same time, blacks, coloureds and Indians are being murdered like flies in South Africa too, while there is no outcry from the media, only denial.

White, black, coloured, Indian, male and female, newborns, babies, toddlers, teenagers, adolescent, adults and old people are being raped like flies in South Africa, while there is no outcry from the media, only denial.

  1. wow! factual informative & correct.

    1. Agreed... with back up to support the fact.. Something our worthless ANC government can't do!!!

  2. The response hereto will be very interesting indeed, we await ir with baited breath..

  3. A brilliant article.. Putting fact to fiction.. All we now wait for is excuse and retaliation from Africa Check... One only needs to go to farmitracker or censorbug to get true figures and a genuine africa check... Something I think Africa Check would rather detour... Africa Check not doing a proper study has hurt our attempt more than they realize and makes them an accomplice to the true figures of murder in SA..

  4. Well done! Great read and great research. Kudos to you.

  5. Great article.

  6. Good article with some solid fact checking and proper citations done. I just have a problem with using Sunette Bridges and Adriana Stuijt as 'credible sources". Through the years there have been many inconsistincies in their arguments and statistics, and in my oponion they should stick to crime reporting and not be cited as experts or eveb humab rights activists.

    1. Sometimes even statistics or information given by what you term as inconsistent, help to define and prove the correct arguments and figures. This person did not say these were correct, it was only used as her references. In any case they may not qualify, according to you as experts or human activists, but boy hey have had a profound impact on getting this message across. This blogspot quoted enough other sources to prove the facts quoted and why Africa Check should in fact be disbanded as useless and being paid for nothing but to confuse the masses.

  7. Thank you for your comments. I truly appreciate it.

    I have to admit though that this surely was the most difficult / unpleasant article I've ever had to write, because it should not have been necessary.

    What I did here is exactly what Africa Check should have done.

    South Africa needs a "fact-check" group and that is what Africa Check holds themselves out to be, but sadly they are not it. Africa Check turned out to be nothing other than human rights activist bashers.

    Africa Check is a disappointed and I have lost all respect for them. I obviously do not expect any response from them, other than an attempt to save face. Any true "fact-check" group would view this as a wake-up call, but activist-bashers obviously would not.

    What I have learned from this is that we need to put together a real objective, non-partisan, fact-check group that could really does what Africa Check is supposed to do.

    I have yet to read an Africa Check article that impresses me.

    They recently published probably their most ridiculous article ever, which I might just also pull apart, but I really do not consider them worthy of any more of my time.

    Africa Check is simply a disappointment and in my view they have failed the victims of crime, murder and rape in this country.

    If they really were sincere about their task they would have brought all role-players into their group, from all sides, to really be able to fact-check without any bias.

    Africa Check should be taking on government about the rubbish stats being produced by the SA Police and they should query each and every statistic made public by them, rather than procliaming that we should accept such rubbish as accurate.

    SA Police statistics are a disgrace and we need to act on behalf of the public, the victims and potential victims of crime, period.

  8. Excellent article, the citations and links are much appreciated.

    There are lies, damn lies and statistics.
    The data is not even being collected correctly by SAPS, any statistics based on government data are thus meaningless and meant to fool only those who don't live in SA, or those deluded souls who 'want to believe'.

    If you live in SA, just think of the number of people you knew who have been murdered, compare that to the number of people you know/knew in total.
    It may not be scientific, but it should indicate that we are in deep, deep trouble.

    It is painfully obvious that we have lost all state support.
    If murdered we will not even count as a statistic.

    Many of us whites still live in insulated worlds, I urge everyone to make an effort to get to know your neighbours, strengthen your ties to the community you live in.

    The more isolated we are, the easier we can be picked off...

    1. I'm willing to bet that at least 80% of all people working for and consulting for Africa Check, including their experts, all live in high security complexes.

      Now why would that be one wonders :-)

      Now just consider the calculations done by TAU that showed how the black population grew by 920% over the past 100 years,

      Read what I said in "A Lesson in Mathematics South African Style"

      Look at the age distribution of the SA population (based on our useless statistics)

      By the year 2100, less than 90 years from now, Africa's population is expected to be 4,185,000,000, while the whole of Asia will have 4,712,000,000

      There is not a single example anywhere in Africa where whites remained after take-over by any fascist, communist, rebel, terrorist or revolutionary movement.

      Whites are declining in SA and as time goes by whites will disappear from SA to leave it to blacks to destroy like each and every other African country on earth, including the oldest independent African state on earth, Haiti.

      The white race is facing extinction, in South Africa and on this planet as a whole.

    2. I won't take you up on that bet!

      I imagine that's a big part of why they are willing to lie and distort the truth as they do. They are terrified of losing their income, and their place in the security complex.

      I agree, but blacks did not grow their population by themselves. They rely on white farmers and/or western aid to feed them all.

      When the whites disappear the black population will fall and in time reach equilibrium at a far smaller size.

      I agree also that we are facing eventual extinction worldwide if we continue along the same path. When presented with all the facts this is the logical conclusion, thus many others have or will come to see it as well.

      Once we have realised this, the question is: What do we do about it?

      I think we need to look at why this is happening.
      I believe our culture and institutions have been slowly eroded and corrupted such that they now work against us. Whether this happened naturally or by design is irrelevant, the result is the same.

      We have two options: To fix what we have, or start again.

      We could attempt to change our existing culture and institutions.
      I think this is impossible. The USA and Australia may just have a chance, but in my view it is a slim chance. There are simply too many people who benefit from the current state of the world. Then there are those who have been sold the liberal lie: That life should be easy and everyone should get everything they want for free, there should be no winners or losers and everyone is the same. That mindset is now very deeply ingrained in Western culture.

      The average person just doesn't seem to be interested in their future. They are willing to believe the lies, or at least ignore them, so long as it means they don't have to do (or think) anything.
      There are over 4 million of us in SA, and yet see how few comments you got on this article, the Africa Check article also received very few comments (only 46 as of now).

      Those in power have the media and most of the state institutions (most importantly the police and justice system) firmly under their control. Any attempt to influence large amounts of people will be met with firm and overwhelming opposition. The rules can be and are bent so far that it's as if they are not even there. It is easy to imagine being arrested on trumped up charges and rotting in prison. Who will care if that happens to you or me, and what could they do if they did?

      I may be wrong, but I cannot even imagine how we could fix the mess we find ourselves in.

      I believe, that if we are to survive as a race, as a principled people controlling our own destiny, then we must form a new nation from the ground up.

      The first steps in either option are the same.
      We must start forming groups at a level outside of state control, and we must redefine what it means to be white.

      To me being white is not just a skin colour, it's not just our genetics. Being white also means being principled, to have honour and integrity, to know right from wrong, to think before I act, to create more than I consume, etc.
      In short, to have a core set of values on which I don't compromise.

      Currently those values are not well defined.

      Our culture used to be regulated by the church, but the church is now broken. Christianity has been manipulated to stand for anything and everything, and as a result it now stands for nothing.

      We need to start returning to the values and way of life that brought success to our ancestors.

      I think we should begin by determining just what it means to be white. To write those values out somewhere and then as individuals begin to associate more with whites who share our values and less with those who don't.

  9. I'm terrified of ToxiNews being kidnapped by a luring Soros cheque to lead Africa Check in actual forthcoming stats research. You stumped them good, sir.

    1. Money can buy many people, but there are some people money just cannot buy Steve.

      Liberals live their lives according to rules. Rules can be bent and changed.

      Fortunately us conservatives live our lives according to principles and principles always remain the same.

      No one is willing to die for rules, but many are willing to die for principles.

      It is therefore against our principles to be bought. As long as we stick to our principles we'll be safe.

    2. i think you are inviting blacks to kill you to revenge all th hardships and pain and suffering that you subjected them to in the past because you should be atoning and repenting but you chose the warmongering route. Pygmies exhibited like animals before a gawping public. Forced labour with amputations to encourage productivity. Medical experiments used to justify Nazi theories of Aryan superiority.

      Even now, many of the horrors of colonial Africa are insufficiently understood in the countries that inflicted them, according to Brett Bailey, a South African whose latest performance installation, Exhibit B, explores some of the most shocking.

      "A lot of these atrocities were committed in the name of colonialism and in the name of bringing civilisation, Jesus Christ etc to Africa," he told AFP in Paris.

      "Thousands and tens of thousands were murdered and these have all been covered up and secreted away."

      Bailey, who uses real people in his installation, was inspired by the "human zoo" exhibits popular during the late nineteenth and early 20th centuries.

      Europeans and Americans once flocked to these exhibits in which Africans such as pygmy Ota Benga posed in native dress.

    3. Ota was brought to New York in the early years of the 20th century by American Samuel Verner after the explorer and businessman stumbled on a village inhabited by cannibals in the Belgian Congo.

      The cannibals had captured a group of pygmies and after establishing that the prisoners would rather go to America than be eaten Verner negotiated their sale.

      On one day alone in 1906, 40,000 people turned up to view Ota at the monkey house at Bronx Zoo.

      "These exhibits were used to justify imperialism," said Bailey, also a playwright, theatre director and arts curator whose current work has just been shown in Paris ahead of stints in Strasbourg from Tuesday and Edinburgh and London next year.

      "There was a sort of political agenda that was behind it, to reduce people to colonial positions, objects for exhibition," he said.

      In concentration camps there, Herero women were made to boil the decapitated heads of fellow prisoners and scrape them clean with shards of glass.

      A scene from a performance installation entitled "Exhibit B" by Brett Bailey at the Eglise des Celes …

      In another display, a man with a basket filled with casts of human hands is a reference to forced labour in Congo.

      As an incentive to ensure maximum productivity, the hands of those who failed to harvest enough rubber were cut off.

      And Bailey brings things up to date with a modern-day African migrant to Europe, hands and feet bound and adhesive tape over his mouth, on a deportation flight.

      The scene is a reference to young Somalian migrant Mariame Getu Hagos who died after being restrained during an attempt to deport him from Paris to Johannesburg in January 2003.

      "Politics runs through all my works," said Bailey, adding that he had been influenced by growing up during apartheid, under "a system which was about denigrating one racial group".

      But he said that despite the end of apartheid he found it difficult to be optimistic about South Africa's future.

      The country lacked an "Obama figure" to inspire hope, he said.

      "The two great shames of the South African transition is that there was very little economic transformation and the education system has become worse. It is deteriorating.

  10. I am a poor unfortunate, devoid of principles, completely idiotic liberal. I do not understand why only white people should be seen as righteous, moral etc? Where did that happen? Jesus was not even white, but grew up in the Middle East, an area not really known for the white population. Also, why do we whites always have to cloak those of colour as being somehow lesser than we are. The black people who kill are despicable, but they often have mothers and sisters that are not. They often have family that are deeply religious and spiritual, but yet they are not white, therefore not worthy. This is why I have distanced myself from my Afrikaner heritage. I am a proud human being, who longs to do good to all and respect everyone worthy of that, whether they are white or black. I also do not need to be in church every Sunday to be a good, moral human being. Please stop looking at colour and get a life!

    1. i believe you didn't read the last two paragraphs. so you did just prove yourself an idiotic liberal.

      "Given the above we have to conclude that Steve Hofmeyr was right, whites are being murdered like flies in South Africa. At the same time, blacks, coloureds and Indians are being murdered like flies in South Africa too, while there is no outcry from the media, only denial.

      White, black, coloured, Indian, male and female, newborns, babies, toddlers, teenagers, adolescent, adults and old people are being raped like flies in South Africa, while there is no outcry from the media, only denial."

    2. I don't think whites should be SEEN as righteous, moral etc.
      I think whites should BE righteous, moral etc.

      No one is saying that non-whites are not worthy, why do people like you keep coming to that conclusion?
      I think people should create their own worth, and strive to be worthy as individuals, not just declared worthy because of their race.

      Why must white people integrate with all other cultures, can't those other cultures stand on their own?

      I believe there are genetic difference between races, the differences may be small, but when viewed over a large population they manifest in a big way.

      I also try to respect, and be good to all people, but I don't see why they should be given so much at such expense to our own.
      We have now lost our country, we have no defences left against crime or tyranny. Do you see this as a good thing? Is it ok that we have to suffer, so long as we are all the same?

      You think we can all just get along as humans.
      Unfortunately your views have been proven incorrect by history and they are being proven incorrect now in practice.
      People will always gravitate towards their own race and culture. It's a natural thing and I see nothing wrong with it.

      I think it is very wrong to abandon your own culture. I'm not sure I even follow why you would say/do such a thing, as I know many Afrikaners who are good and kind to all.

      Do you also believe the opposite, do you think that good (deeply religious and spiritual or whatever you said) black people should give up their whole culture and history because of the criminals in their midst?

      I'm going to take a leap of faith here and say that the righteous, worthy people of other races will probably agree more with my views than yours.

    3. Your last sentence is just so ridiculous that I can't resist putting:

      Please start looking at colour and save your life!

    4. Never allow a liberal to waste your time.

    5. Pardon my English as I am a Afrikaans speaking farmer and my English is very rusted, so is my grammar so plse don't comment on my writing. The thing with the population explosion has its roots in nature.
      Its a proven fact that the more hazardous life is for a biological entity and the more it is suppressed the higher the population will be in a shorter time spec. As soon as the danger disappears the population will even out and as a other poster suggest, a equilibrium will appear. Enough on that subject.
      I think the liberal people must be careful not to be thrown out with the washing water, we humans are like ostriches that stuck their heads into the sand as to not see the danger around them and after a while we belief that there isn't any danger

      To say this plain and simple, white is white and black is black, we simply cant ignore our differences.

      I think after the white man has gone, everything will go down in flames and I think we are heading that way, the first fires are already burning, everything is spiralling out of control. If you cant see that, then you must be blind or a ostrich.

      Malema and the ANC are brothers in arms and they think the whites to be to stupid to realise it. But there is one place we all can go, black and white, and that's to your ''binnekamer'' and seek solace in the only almighty God. After everything is said and done we will rise up from the ashes and He will be praised as he should be.

  11. This information is so important! Thanks for the effort you took. We must get this out to all 4 corners of the world. Research done is impeccable and trustworthy.

    1. Thanks, we're trying to distribute it as wide as possible.

  12. Brilliant Article, it should get out to the rest of the world as liberals forms a great part of the disease that ails the White Countries.
    If they think for a moment that a biped with murder on the mind is going to ask them, “are you a nice liberal writing everything “good” about us as your jewish master who paid and owns you told you too, they have another thing coming as their white skins are the same as those they portray so falsely in the media.
    So . . . when they break into your house and spend hours raping your liberal arse please remember to be happy because it is probably the first time they have had the opportunity to rape anyone in a nice house.
    And when they leave you lying on the floor broken and bleeding I hope your liberal bullshit brings you much comfort!

    The libtard agents of disinformation seems ignorant to the fact that their skins [white] is their own downfall . . .
    When the jews writes “wipe out the White Races, it means LIBERALS too, they’re but pawns in the game and truly are what’s known as “useful idiots”

    I quote
    We will openly reveal our identity with the races of Asia and Africa. I can state with assurance that the last generation of white children is now being born. Our Control Commissions will, in the interests of peace wipe out inter- racial tensions.
    Forbid the Whites to mate with Whites.
    The White Women must cohabit with members of the dark races, the White Men with black women. Thus the White Race will disappear, for the mixing of the dark with the White means the end of the White Man, and our most dangerous enemy will become only a memory. We shall embark upon an era of ten thousand years of peace and plenty, the Pax Judaica, and our race will rule undisputed over the world. Our superior intelligence will easily enable us to retain mastery over a world of dark peoples.

    1. South Africa is living proof that liberalism is the ultimate crime against humanity.
      In 1999, liberals granted voting rights to all prisoners in South Africa, including psychopathic serial murderers & rapists, terrorists, etc.
      Africa is Lion country. There is no place for liberal weasels denying corrective rape, baby-rape as cure for HIV/AIDS, necklacing, murders..
      Academics don't understand the world, they think the world is a theoretical matrix existing in words contained in textbooks and journals.
      If Marikana was a massacre, what the hell do we call the murdering of 400,000 people over the past 20 years? SA is a human slaughterhouse!
      People are deliberately keeping themselves blind to reality. They fear having to face it, coz it may be overwhelming.
      Once safe peaceful suburbs have grown too dangerous for people to leave their homes after sunset. Mostly foreigners & youth committing crime.
      30,6m of SA's 51.8m population are under the age of 30. We are facing a huge population explosion with criminal, uneducated, jobless youth.
      If liberals wiped the sewage scum from their eyes to realise what's heading our way, they would have fled SA a long time ago already.
      Everyone, black, white, coloured, Indian, are embarrassed by the rape, murder, crime, drug abuse in SA accept liberals who are growing rich from it.

  13. Am I the only one stupid enough not being able to find a comment section on that grossly “whanna be famous at all cost” site called “Africa Check”

    I have a mouth full to throw their way, but to no avail as I’ll not give them my personal details on Facebook I seem to have only one other option and that’s to donate money.
    Well, as the saying goes . . . follow the money trail and it will lead you to the perp.

    Yeah, ToxiNews just think how famous we could be if we sold-out to those who promote our downfall.
    Then again . . .
    We the ones who care about our People are like stained-glass windows.
    We sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
    but when the darkness sets in our true beauty is
    revealed only if there is a light from within.
    And it’s this “light from within” the dark dreary races wants, and because they never received it, and never can possess it they revert to brute force and ignorance to turn our Yahweh/God given light out.
    In their tiny minds killing and maiming us is the only way they have to alleviate the pain of ugliness.

    The kike jews like the dark dreary races are in the same boat, just more subtle and underhanded, as with everything the kikes revert to race hatred, they’re known as cowards, who can only steal or obtain illegally that which he desires and can’t have for free.
    But . . . there is a reckoning coming, a reckoning between humanity and the Jewish communist inspired people, which will cause the very heavens to darken and the very devils in hell to hide their faces in shock and terror.

    You might say we owe them a Holocaust.
    We've been paying their bill for years, and at some point we're finally going to get what we've paid for.

    1. It seems they've closed their comments to that misleading article.
      What's also interesting is that Africa Check continues using that ridiculous pathetic story as their "expert reference" and even the stupid media continue using it as "trustworthy reference".
      It just shows that they're all in this together. Deliberately misleading the world in order to lure unsuspecting foreign visitors to get raped, mugged and murdered in this country.

  14. The problem of fighting and killing between whites and blacks is continue from a long time, so many people have lost their lives with out any sin. It is enough now they should have a look to their past that what he gain?
