Terreblanche murder is ‘declaration of war’ by blacks
WTF does “Far Right” stand for anyway?
Members of the far-Right AWB threatened vengeance after he was beaten to death in a dispute with two farm workers over “unpaid wages”.
If you believe that, you believe anything. The lame stream media has been deceiving us for too long to be taken seriously.
Police said he was attacked to the head with a machete and a club in his bed at his farm outside Ventersdorp, North West province, on Saturday night.
Two men, aged 21 and 15, have been charged with murder and will appear in court on Tuesday.
Andre Visagie, the AWB’s secretary-general and a leading candidate to succeed Mr Terreblanche as head of the organisation, said the party was planning its response.
“The death of Mr Terreblanche is a declaration of war by the black community of South Africa to the white community that has been killed for ten years on end,” he said.
He said there was “fierce anger” among AWB members.
“They all call for revenge for Eugene TerreBlanche’s death,” he said. “There are people who threatened to start with violence. We encourage them to wait until we can launch co-ordinated actions at one time right across the country.”
He refused to rule out violence “if we don’t have any option” and appealed for foreign intervention, including the provision of arms, “to assist us to defend us in this country where the white man is being murdered every day”.
The ruling African National Congress disputed Visagie’s statement and Mr Zuma called the killing a “terrible deed”.
“South Africans not to allow agent provocateurs to take advantage of this situation by inciting or fuelling racial hatred,” he said. “The murder of Terreblanche must be condemned, irrespective of how his killers think they may have been justified. They had no right to take his life.”
Jackson Mthembu, ANC spokesman, added: “The black community has never declared war on any other nationality in South Africa. It is in fact incorrect and these are sentiments that fuel polarisation of the South African populace.”
White South Africans are not “another nationality”. They are South Africans. They have more rights to be there than the blacks who came much later.
Nathi Mthethwa, the police minister, visited the scene of the killing, a homestead surrounded by rolling fields on the highveld plateau in North West province.
He said: “We really appeal to people not to make inflammatory statements, no matter where they come from, because they are not going to be helpful.”
“helpful” to whom?
Mr Terreblanche, 69, rose to prominence in the 1980s, campaigning for a separate white homeland and championing a tiny minority determined to preserve apartheid.
He was known for his fiery rhetoric and his white supremacist movement mounted a bombing campaign to defend apartheid. He later serving a prison sentence for the attempted murder of a black security guard.
His death came amid an ongoing controversy over the ANC Youth Leader, Julius Malema, singing an apartheid-era song that advocates killing white farmers at a rally. A South African court has ruled the song, which includes the line ‘Kill the Boer’, is illegal but the ANC has defended it as part of its heritage from the struggle against apartheid. Boer is Afrikaans for a farmer, but is often used as a disparaging term for any white in South Africa.
Opposition parties have called for called for action and highlighted the fact that more than 3,000 white farmers are estimated to have been murdered since the end of apartheid in 1994.
There is growing disenchantment among blacks in South Africa for whom the right to vote has not translated into jobs and better housing and education.
Some consider themselves betrayed by leaders governing the richest country on the continent and pursuing a policy of black empowerment that has made millionaires of a tiny black elite while millions remain trapped in poverty, even as whites continue to enjoy a privileged lifestyle.
“Whites continue to enjoy a privileged lifestyle?” Sounds like the Obama-bastard is spreading his poison. Lets spread the wealth around then and see where it leads, you miserable commie rats….
