Anti-White Racism: South Africa’s Parliament Votes By 74% Majority To Confiscate White-Owned Land Without Compensation
South Africa has long been suffering from racial tensions, which were this week epitomised by the anti-white decision by the South African parliament to amend the country’s constitution to allow for white-owned land to be confiscated by the government without any compensation.
The motion was supported by the ruling African National Congress and the country’s new President, Cyril Ramaphosa, who has made expropriating white-owned land one of the key aims of his Presidency.
Brought by the leader of Marxist opposition party the Economic Freedom Fighters, the motion was backed by 241 votes and only opposed by 83.
The only parties to not support the motion were the Democratic Alliance, Freedom Front Plus, Cope and the African Christian Democratic Party – who together make up only a small minority of the parliament.
Julius Malema, the leader of the Marxist opposition party, said: “The time for reconciliation is over. Now is the time for justice. We must ensure that we restore the dignity of our people without compensating the criminals who stole our land.
“We are not calling for the slaughter of white people, at least for now”
However, a study just last showed that white people own around 72% of farmland in South Africa, meaning the parliament will be taking land away from over two-thirds of the nation’s farmers which will undoubtedly cause great food shortages in the short-term and probably in the long-term as well.
South Africa has, for a long time, been facing very serious problems with the mass murder of white farmers, with some research showing that white farmers are five times more likely to be murdered than any other South African. While this data’s reliability has been questioned, it shows roughly the extent to which there is a problem with racist murders in the nation.
Approximately 156 white farmers in every 100,000 are killed in South Africa, which is higher than most, if not all, other countries on Earth.
The approach to be taken by South Africa is indifferent to the approach taken by Zimbabwe, which has resulted in catastrophic food shortages and mass starvation.
In Zimbabwe, President Mnangagwa has urged white farmers who were expelled from their land in the country in the early 2000s to return, saying that his people are dying of starvation as a result of the racist policy. Mnangagwa’s statement suggests that this anti-white policy is doomed to failure and mass starvation yet South Africa’s politicians are keen to continue with it nonetheless.
Despite what is one of the most frightening instances of governmental racism seen in the 21st Century at play here, we have seen global silence from the media, politicians and even from organisations like the UN and the EU, who are usually keen to stop racism, leading many to question the motives behind these organisations.
