Firstly, I think you are in need of a history lesson as your paper seems to be so misinformed. I have elaborated on the history of South Africa in relation to the Boer and the Afrikaner and the system of Apartheid below.
I have forwarded this letter to every writer and editor connected to the Los Angeles Times as I think your newspaper needs to cease promoting hatred and inciting violence in my home nation, and on the international stage.
?????I use stage, as that’s how you people____use your platform to spread misinformation and lies, and by doing so put the life of millions in danger.
I am an Afrikaner, descended from the Boer settlers that built South Africa from a piece of earth into the marvelous nation and first world economy it once was.
The misinformation you printed in your Scott Kraft article, demonizing the white Afrikaner people, when we are being systematically murdered because of the sort of hate filled rhetoric your words incite, needs to be removed from your website and
The article by Scott Kraft, which I discovered inside an article criticising it, http://www.europeanknightsproject.com/l-a-times-incite-hatred-against-white-afrikaners-in-re-released-racist-article/ was one of the most irresponsible hatchet jobs I have ever read.
The article is 20 years old, yet it appears on your website directly below your newest stories about South Africa. I was literally stunned when I saw that it shows up as though it is a current story.
As I already stated, you need to familiarize yourself with the facts about the Boer and the Afrikaner in South Africa who in fact did not even create the system of Apartheid for which we are blamed throughout the world. The word Apartheid was first used by Dr HF Verwoer, but if anybody would actually take the time to listen to that speech and study his whole policy, they would realize it’s totally different from the false sympathy-inducing version the Marxist ANC gave the world. Communist = Liar, we all know or should know that. They use the most vulnerable members of their society to seize power and spread hatred. That’s evidenced by the hundreds of millions of dead scattered across the globe that Communist movements have left in their wake.
The fact is Apartheid in the sense it is used by the international media and anyone who feels offended anywhere in the world, was implemented by the British Empire.
They implemented this system in South Africa, Zimbabwe and the rest of Africa, their colonies in the Americas, Asia , Australia and New Zealand.
But let’s concentrate on South Africa, as Marxists like yourselves have done for generations.
The Boer Afrikaner were in a war with the British Empire that ended in 1902. During this war the Brits used black people as cannon fodder to help them fight against the Boer. If they had not done so they would have lost the war as the blacks were instrumental in finding and showing the Britts the arms cashes of the Boers. As history will show later the fight in the Boer was far from over after this war.
The Britts promised the Blacks, they used in the war against the Boer settlers, land for their help against the Boers. The war ended in 1902. No land was given to the Blacks, and they were told to wait. The Union of South Africa was declared in 1910.
Between 1902 and 1910 the Brits instituted a system of Apartheid, or measures to keep black and white apart, by not allowing blacks or any other color to come into white residential areas at night, to eat separately, to drink separately or to socialize with each other separately.
Blacks and Whites were prohibited from having sexual relationships with each other, and any relationship like that would land both parties in jail.
The British implemented these racial laws in spite of promising the black population land during the war.
Here’s the actual chronology of events.
• In 1809 the British government passed the Native Pass Law in South Africa;
• In 1865 the British Governor, Theophilus Shepstone, declared that Blacks in Natal could not vote;
• In 1894, Cecil John Rhodes prohibited Krom Hendricks from accompanying a Cape team to Britain;
• The South African Native Affairs Commission was established by Lord Milner in 1903, and this served as judicial base for racial separation in <st1:country-region w:st=”on”>South Africa;
• In 1905 compulsory separate schools were established in the Cape by Cecil John Rhodes; • There were NO such laws in the Boer Republics;
• Lord Balfour warned against voting rights for ‘naturals’;
• Chamberlain, Lord Milner, Trollope, and Lord Bryce were all vehemently opposed to voting rights for black people;
• The South African Law of 1907, accepted by the British government, declared that only people of European descent could be elected to the South African Parliament;
• The Native Land Act no 2 of 1913 prohibited property ownership by Blacks;
• The concept of job reservation was introduced in 1925 by Minister, HW Sampson, and implemented in the mines, and industries;
• Sex and marriages across the colour line were declared unlawful in 1927 by the Natal Immorality Act of 1927;
• During Jan Smut’s last term of office, the Native Urban Act 25 of 1945 was implemented, and it stated that a black person couldn’t be present in any white areas for longer than 72 hours without a permit This meant (after the Anglo-Boer wars), that even Whites were segregated: British there, Afrikaners there and the Boers put in “white ghettos” (they were considered to be of lower status after the Brits broke the peace treaty) – much like the Brits thought of the Irish etc.
By 1913 the British prohibited any black from owning any property in South Africa. This was in 1913, not 1948 when South Africa’s National Party was established, or 1961 when Dr Verwoerd came to power. It was done by the Brits. They implemented it, on lands that were taken by British colonizers who are still some of the loudest anti Apartheid protesters today.
In 1914 there was a Boer rebellion, with the Blacks that had been betrayed, supporting the Boers in a war which lasted until 1918, when the Brits did WHAT? Kept Boer and black prisoners APART. That’s right APART LIKE IN APARTHEID.
The white Boers and Afrikaner stayed within the same towns as the English people, WHO DID NOT WANT TO MIX WITH THE BLACKS. So Blacks were housed outside towns before and after the rebellion in places called locations, similar to what your nation would call reservations, the manner in which you interned American Indians and Japanese American people during World War II.
Blacks were seen as inferior and therefore mistreated by the Brits, however, we Boer didn’t fare much better. Our women and children were taken to concentration camps, starved ad left to die in what amounted to a holocaust (just a holocaust you’ve not been taught about). Our farms were burned with white Boer and mixed people living in our lands hunted down, relocated and often exterminated. The animals the English were unable to bring were killed, so rebels could not stock up on supplies they needed once the armies left.
These living arrangements, created by British colonial rule, enabled British land owners and businessmen to use Blacks as almost slave labour.
The conditions the Blacks were left in, which were certainly less than ideal, were then exploited by Marxists that had found their way into South Africa. The men and women behind South Africa’s Marxist movement, which saw more black people murdered than under Apartheid itself, were neither Afrikaner nor British, rather asylum seekers fleeing the European holocaust, most of whom hailed from Eastern bloc nations. Like Joe Slovo and his wife Ruth First,
Men like Joe Slovo and Ruth First etc and initiated the founding of the ANC and the SA Communist parties; both were party member of both political parties until they died just like Nelson Mandela was. So if the world was so wonderful under British rule for the blacks, why did they let themselves be manipulated by greedy people to start freedom parties. Free from what? Or free from whom? The Afrikaner Boer had no political power, they had no political influence, all power was in the hands of the English or what were called JOINER Afrikaners and Boers.
So for 58 years from 1902 until 1961 the English government practiced and gave legislative powers to the APARTHEID government, which at that stage did not have a name, but was practiced in the name of the Crown. The Boer and Afrikaner picked themselves up with the help of a young Dutch teacher by the name of Dr Hendrik Verwoerd, and were rebuilding themselves from 1933 until 1961, always resisting the English powers, eventually winning freedom on their own, without help from any black in 1961, under the leadership of the same young Dutch teacher who initiated a plan to ensure their survival, Dr HF Verwoerd.
Under the leadership of Dr Verwoerd South Africa had one of the strongest, even stronger than the USA economies in the world at the time. He planned to create a SA different from the one England ran oppressing Blacks. Instead, he suggested 11 separate states on exactly the same principle as the USA is run. His words are on record as saying no nation should oppress another. Each nation should be in a state of their own where they could practice their own government, their own culture, their own religions under one protective umbrella as a Republic. White SA would have financed these states that would develop separately from central government, but would still have the protection of central government. Exactly as the USA guarantee autonomy to the different states in the USA.
He had this speech in both English and Afrikaans where separate development was translated as Aparte ontwikkeling. BUT he also said that mineral wealth and resources that made the country as strong as it was, should be nationalized and managed from central government so nobody could take advantage, and SA riches would not belong to foreigners. Saying that, worked up these old East Block Jews, they used their influence with their self created puppets, the SACP and the ANC, and used the world media who belonged to old East Block Jews up to the present day, to turn Dr Verwoerd’s Afrikaans word for separate development, and quoted it totally out of context to the world.
Secondly, your hero Nelson Mandela, was no angel and no hero, he was a murderer and a terrorist, he NEVER, even after he was set free, denounced violence but was given a peace price. He not only killed people, but he also authorized killings and terrorism and smuggling of weapons, which in any country in the world would be called terrorism. He did this from the safety of his house that white SA boys defended, to make SA a safe place so people like Mandela could blow up churches and restaurants, not killing military powers but killing women and children. And he was okay with that. He was also okay with people like our present President, he controlled and authorized the killings of fellow Blacks in ANC camps.
The rest is recent history, as to how the lying thieving ANC government has brainwashed young people into believing the Afrikaner and Boer were their enemy, and black on white murders in 19 years total 70 000, total murders of all ethnic groups total 650 000, and these are just the killings the SAP have actually opened the cases for as murder cases. The tendency is to call it housebreaking when a person is killed or a woman raped. Children, babies as young as 3 months old are raped because their witch doctors tell them having sex with a virgin will cure their Aids. Dead people`s body parts are harvested for money in hospitals to sell the parts to witch doctors who use them in their so called magic. We have the highest rape rate in the world, it’s 126 times as dangerous to be a farmer than to be a policeman on active duty. The majority of South Africans live in horrific conditions. The infra structure of a first world country 20 years ago, have collapsed into that of a third world country. DEMOCRACY ….. at least you would say people have political freedom. No you do not understand African politics, every tribe has about ten kings, these kings are paid with tax payers’ money EXTRAVAGANT salaries, even private helicopters etc. When the DEMOCRACY calls for an election these kings just tell their people how to vote in order to keep their salaries and benefits intact.
In the meantime the President of this country sings songs (banned by courts) about killing the farmer killing the Boer. In 1994 in Mandelatopia there were 84000 commercial farmers supplying food to 63 million people in SA, as well as food to the whole sub Sahara region. In twenty years that figure has dropped to 24000. Even if land reform is taken into consideration these so called previously disadvantaged people have working productive farms with long term contracts in place for their produce, but they also are not in the market anymore, they harvested or sold the livestock on the farms, took the money and did not even bother to try and do farming after they used all the cash.
Ministers in government also tried their hand at this getting land for free, but they all seemed to end up in court because their animals were eating each other up (cannibalism) because they did not get fed. In the meantime all this was blamed on the word Apartheid. People do not have houses, they die of hunger, they live in the most dangerous country in the world, while the President of the country, when not globe crossing in his private Boeing, is living in a 132 million mansion, he built without authorization with tax payers’ money. He still has to answer to courts for billions of rand in a corrupt arms deal and it goes on and on. And it all got blamed on Apartheid.
Do your readers know that under Apartheid Blacks in SA had access to the BEST medical services on the continent, the BEST education system on the continent, the BEST minimum wages on the continent, the BEST humanitarian rights on the continent? Do your readers know that you are feeding them lies claiming whites killed Blacks for pleasure? Do they know you lie about human rights abuses? Do they know Blacks were protected by law, that even when a white man lifted a finger against him/her it meant jail time for that white? Do your readers know that in the old SA government housing for black people were built at nearly three times the current rate? Do they know that same housing were 100 percent better quality than the dangerous rubbish the present government is building them, taking bribes and kick backs compromising the quality and the safety of those dwellings?
Do your readers know that since 1961 to 1994 there were only 20 000 murders in SA, 2314 were police killing criminals or terrorists, breaking the laws of the country? About 400 were police brutality on political prisoners not authorized by the government. The people caught have been prosecuted. The rest are .0001 percent white on black killings, 5 percent black on white killings and the rest all black on black killings. In the meantime in the New South Africa (Mandelatopia) just killings where the cases were actually opened as murder cases, 650 000 people have been killed in 19 years, that is not mentioning the rest of the crime rate and rape rate that is the highest in the world.
Then your Journalist has the audacity to say whites are getting what they deserve in SA. Where did this person study about SA? Or was the article based on the lies of the terrorist Mandela in his book?
I would love to see if you respond to this, and if you have the guts to publish my letter. Please send me an email with a copy which I doubt you will do. I am however sending this letter to you, to another news paper to, so at least, as many as possible of the public out there get to know about the misinformation they accept as fact from you.
