Is this the man who will murder South Africa?

The bloody worst may still be ahead of South Africa, as a new racism rises:

The South African president, Jacob Zuma, moved yesterday to calm racial tensions after the murder of Eugene Terreblanche, the leader of the far-right Afrikaner Resistance Movement (AWB), was blamed on inflammatory remarks that were made by one of Zuma’s own party officials.

Zuma ordered Julius Malema, 28, leader of the African National Congress (ANC) youth league, to shut up after it emerged that only 48 hours before the killing, Malema had showered praise on Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe and called for the nationalisation of white-owned farms

But is Malema an ANC rogue, or the face of the future?

Julius Malema is a chubby man-child who rose to prominence as Jacob Zuma’s attack dog, threatening violence against anyone who sought to block the Zulu patriarch’s rise to the state presidency…

A poorly educated 28-year-old, he mysteriously acquired two posh houses, a fleet of cars and an obscenely expensive Breitling watch… Malema openly professes dislike for “children of the colonialists”, a term he insists is not synonymous with white people. At other times, he says he doesn’t hate white people, just the quality of “whiteness”. In Malema’s circle, this sort of juvenile wordplay passes as intellectuality…

Malema is the vulgarian who dismissed the woman who laid a rape charge against Zuma as a slut…

Emboldened, he took to excoriating his superiors for placing key economic ministries in the hands of whites and Indians. Then he picked a fight with cabinet minister Jeremy Cronin, South Africa’s most visible white Communist, who had dared to opine that his enthusiasm for nationalisation had much to do with a fondness for bling and nothing to do with the plight of the poor. In response, Malema reportedly sent Cronin a threatening SMS: “Wait to see what’s coming to you.”

Alarm was mounting, but Malema appeared untouchable. Two weeks ago, he made an extraordinary speech at the wedding of Robert Gumede, an IT entrepreneur grown rich off government contracts. Grinning malevolently, Malema warned Gumede that the masses were coming to take his money away…

On his trip [last week to Zimbabwe], Malema was met at the airport by a clutch of notorious profiteers…. They organised a crowd to sing his controversial song about shooting Boers…

In return, Malema expressed his unqualified admiration for the policies that have ruined Zimbabwe and vowed to press for their adoption south of the Limpopo River.

“In South Africa, we are just starting,” said Malema. “Here you are already very far…”

On Thursday, Malema reiterated these sentiments at a press conference marked by an ugly racial attack on a BBC reporter. There has been no repudiation. The silence says something truly ominous: Malema has protection…

The trouble is that this card trumps all others. Our underclass is huge, poorly educated and desperately poor. They know what happened in Zimbabwe, but even so, the prospect of loot is irresistible, and that’s Malema’s bait. Mandela gave them free houses. Mbeki gave them welfare grants, leading to a situation where five million taxpayers support 13 million indigents, with the total rising far more rapidly than our ability to pay. Now Malema and the faceless vultures behind him are offering them the rest. They are playing the death card, the Ace of Spades.

UPDATE

The respected South African Institute for Race Relations, which fought apartheid, has issued a devastating warning about the lethal danger of the new state-sanctioned racism. Read it all. Some of the more important points:

Racial tensions in the country appear to have increased significantly in recent weeks. This appears to be chiefly as a result of incitement by the ruling African National Congress to ‘shoot and kill’ the Afrikaner ethnic minority in the country… What appears to be the case is that much of the racial rapprochement that characterised the first 15 years of South Africa’s democracy is being undone…

Since 1994 the number of white farmers and their families murdered in South Africa is conservatively put at around 1 000. It may very well be much higher. There are currently an estimated 40 000 commercial farmers in the country. Over this same period in the region 250 000 South Africans out of a total current population of approximately 47 million have been murdered. Criminal violence can therefore be described as ‘rampant’ and has done considerable damage to the social fabric of the country. However, this is not to say that all murders in the country are a function of simple criminal banditry. In an environment where law and order has largely collapsed the consequences of incitement by political leaders to commit murder must be taken seriously.

Over the same period the policy measures put in place by the Government to raise the living standards of the black majority have failed to meet expectations. The key interventions of affirmative action and black economic empowerment have been exploited by the African National Congress to build a network of patronage that has made elements of its leadership extremely wealthy…

At the same time the party is acutely aware that its support base of poor black South Africans has begun to turn against it. Violent protest action against the ruling party is now commonplacearound the country. In order to shore up support in the black community the ANC increasingly appears to be seeking to shift the blame for its delivery failures onto the small white ethnic minority, which today comprises well under 10% of the total population of South Africa…

But the ANC … also undermined parliament, the national prosecution service, and the various human rights and other organisations that were established under the Constitution….

(Whites and other minorities) may take the advice of President Zuma to remain calm as they pack up their businesses and their families and calmly board aircraft for Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the United States, and Great Britain…

However … the ANC depends greatly on the tax income paid by white South Africans to balance South Africa’s books. Secondly, it depends entirely on the food produced by a small number of white farmers to feed the country. Thirdly, white South Africans still dominate the skills base of the country… Polarisation will beget further racial conflict…

South Africa desperately needs more voices like this.

    It might be the white South Africans only option.
    But will they want to return, after the black South Africans come to their senses?
    NO!

  2. As a liberal African woman, I am disgusted with the remarks this country bumpkin in shoes is making. South Africa may not have the best history but he and the ANC are forgetting what their fore fathers fought for. They wanted a society where everyone would be entitled to live a happy and normal life whether they were native or Boer. A country like S.A has always had great potential, I don’t want to see it sink to Zim’s level all because of the malicious ‘intentional’ remarks of children who believe firmly in tit for tat.
    Anyway, If the worst comes to the worst, the Boer and Asian South Africans are more than welcome to settle in other unbigoted nations.
    I am bloody annoyed… …Honestly how does an idiot with no degree yet alone respect get the balls to say such nonsense?

  3. When I lived in Botswana in the 1970’s and there were riots in South Africa Botswana set up refugee camps for Black South Africans. Initially these were close to the capitol city where I was living Gaborone. But the huge upsurge in violence, murder, robbery and general mayhem in what was previously a very very tolerant Multi Cultural non discriminating peaceful Country eventually became so bad that they were moved 50 Kms in to the desert to fenced camps and guarded by the Botswana Police and Army and not allowed to travel anywhere except back to South Africa.
    These are the sort of people who rule South Africa today. !!!!!Nuff said

  4. Dont forget too that over 2/3rds of what is now South Africa had White Boers in it long before any Black Bantu set foot there. The Northward migrating Boers and the Southwards migrating Bantu met first on the aptly named Blood River which is 2/3rds of the way up NORTH in South Africa. The Bantus then only came in to the Boer States as TEMPORARY migrant farm workers on the Boers land which they now claim to own. Until the British conquered the Boers and allowed the Bantu to stay.

  5. Yes , just about everything bad in the world leads back to Britain..and now their own country is in serious trouble..but you have to hand it to them they were adventurous.

  6. “…..just about everything bad in the world leads back to Britain…”

    theresaj, you might as well say “…just about everything bad in the world leads back to Rome…” Or why not blame the Ottoman Empire, or the Byzantine Empire, or any of history’s great nations? They are all equally to blame. History is what is is. This is now.

    Don’t get me wrong. I in NO WAY supported apartheid or the policies of successive governments that upheld it. But since the end of apartheid South Africa has been ravaged by poverty, AIDS, and unemployment.

    From http://news.newamericamedia.org:

    “Many people around the world who supported the struggle against South Africa’s apartheid system erroneously believe that since the installation of Nelson Mandela and the African National Congress in 1994 conditions have improved. However …….the reality is the opposite. Many workers say life in South Africa today is worse than apartheid.”

    Whose fault is that?

    If I was a white person in South Africa, I’d be getting out, while getting out is still possible.

  7. What I meant ImnoDhimmi was that there is trouble almost everywhere in former British colonies.
    I am aware that things are bad in South Africa..A lot of white people have already left..they have been leaving for years..The sad thing now is that a lot of white people are too poor to leave. They are living in squatter camps..no jobs , no houses , no security….
    There was a case awhile ago of a white South African man claiming refugee status in Canada. I do not know the outcome of his application.
