A few years back our old EKP.org website ran a story about Bono’s (lead singer for Irish rock band, U2) defense of the infamous ‘Kill the Boer’ song, his belief that Nelson Mandela was “the greatest man in history” and claim the ANC, like its comrades in the IRA (the IRA actually helped train the Black Communist African National Congress), were “ideological brothers” in the “moral crusade against colonialism and oppression.”
Bono likened the Boer, who’d “centuries earlier raped and colonised South Africa” to the “British Empirical machine that had “colonised Ireland and the rest of the uncivilised world”. My guess his use of the term uncivilised, was done so sardonically.
Remarkably, in that same Interview, Bono compared the Arab Spring; that’s since spawned the Islamist groups terrorising the Syrian, Kurdish and Christian Arab people, as one of the “great democratic movements the mid East had seen.”
Remember, this is the same Leftist hypocrite who once sent his private jet back to Europe to retrieve his lucky hat (the man fights climate change), dodges paying taxes in his ‘beloved’ Ireland by keeping his cash offshore, and runs a Leftist charity that pockets more than 80% of its revenue.
Simply put: the man is a hypocrite of the grandest proportion and about as thick as pig sh^t..
But he made these hateful comments more than three years ago, Giacomo. Perhaps Bono’s had an epiphany and changed his ludicrous ways?
Not a chance, as evidenced by comments he made during his most recent trip to South Africa outlined in the following article.
(note-I wonder how many black South Africans can afford tickets to see U2?)
Firstly, I’d like to start this piece by saying, we English are far from perfect, and yes we’ve most certainly done a few things we should be ashamed of, but come on, all this Leftist anti-white, and specifically anti-Anglo bashing is getting a tad fastidious.
If we’re such bastards why is everyone fighting to move here?
From black Africans, to Muslims, Eastern Euros, even poorer Western Europeans – Britain appears to be the destination of choice the world over for the globe’s oppressed.
Still, that fact won’t stop the hatred, or stem the tide of my Marxist sister’s contempt for all things Anglo Saxon.
A few years back my pathologically liberal sister told me something that will always stay with me: “We should be proud of our Scotch Irish roots, but never our English ones.”
She said this while we were staring at the National William Wallace Monument in Stirling, Scotland, muttering, “Fucking English” under her breath, too many times for me to count.
Well, it seems “Brits were and always will be colonists and oppressors and deserve the hatred they receive across the globe.”
Being proud of Anglo Saxon accomplishment (even dopey David Cameron admitted ‘Brits invented most of the things worth inventing”), is something they should be ashamed of.
They being the operative word.
The fact my sis and I are at best 1/8 Scotch Irish and 7/8 English is irrelevant as well.
Better to identify as a victim than with your actual nationality I suppose….
When I informed Jemma (my liberal anti-white sis) that her Marxist brethren now also hated white Irish (the dark ones like her beloved Bono as well), she dismissed it.
“It’s irrelevant. The fucking English are the true racists.”
Irish quite interestingly are still victims her eyes; that is, until they start preach Catholicism, ban abortion or oppressing minorities more ethnic than they are.
You see, Marxists have this little habit of compartmentalising people – either you’re an oppressor, or you’re part of the oppressed class.
Gio Wolf writes that,
Sure, white working class people – Marxists original recruitment demographic, were once known as the proletariat, or quote oppressed. But now unless said worker is female, gay, trans something-or-other, or better still, Jewish, they’re an oppressive member of the much maligned white male heterosexual patriarchy. Unbeknownst to your sister and the likes of Bono, the Irish are included in that.”
Here are a few rules.
Women, unless they describe themselves as nationalist or conservatives, are oppressed, even if they’re white and born into the sort of immense wealth Marxists supposedly deplore.
Blacks too always count as oppressed, regardless of whether or not they’re a minority; as they are in the United States, or the majority, and call the shots, as they do in South Africa.
Brown skinned Indians and Asians fit some of the criteria, but generally do too well to be oppressed – unless they’re Islamic, at which point they revert back to being members of the oppressed.
Women victimised by sexual assault are victims….unless they’ve been raped by a Muslim or non white of course. At which point they need to go away and shut the fuck, better yet , put some clothes on as the Norwegian foreign minister recently opined.
Children aren’t victims, as they can’t vote.
It gets confusing after a while. I’m confused writing this.
Still it seems the Irish, are oppressed in comparison to the English, and when you’re 1/8 Irish as we are, we might as use it.
And billionaire Bono certainly agrees.
“Yes certainly. We Irish have long been victimised and know first hand how it felt to live under British Apartheid rule. That’s why I sympathise with black south Africans” He told the Daily Telegraph’s Markl Pflannz this past year regarding his defending of the singing of ‘Kill he Boer’.
“Back in 2013 the Irish singer reportedly drew comparisons between the song and Irish republican songs, during an interview before a U2 concert in Johannesburg on Sunday night.
He was aware of the furore the song had caused, he reportedly told South Africa’s Sunday Times newspaper, but added that protest songs were legitimate parts of political activism.
“I was a kid and I’d sing songs I remember my uncles singing … rebel songs about the early days of the Irish Republican Army,” he told the newspaper. “We sang this and it’s fair to say it’s folk music … as this was the struggle of some people that sang it over some time.”
The controversial South African song includes a line “shoot the Boer” or “shoot the farmer”, and prompted sustained debate after the murder of Eugene Terreblanche, a white separatist leader allegedly hacked to death on his farm by two black employees.
Julius Malema, the head of the youth wing of South Africa’s ruling African National Congress, was reprimanded last year for singing the song, which was an anti-apartheid anthem in the 1980s.
Activists for South Africa’s white Afrikaner people have gone to court to argue that the lyrics should be classed as hate speech and banned from public broadcast. Bono agreed that such songs could be seen as incendiary and that there were “rules” about where they should be sung.
The story immediately reopened debate on South African social networks and radio talks shows.
Steve Hofmeyr, a popular Afrikaans musician, told his Twitter followers that he had thrown more than £400-worth of tickets for last night’s concert into a Johannesburg river in protest.
“Anytime you mention this song, you are guaranteed to stir things up,” said Sheldon Morais, an editor on Talk Radio 702, a Johannesburg station. “There was a lot of discussion about this, a lot of anger from call-ins. It has died down during the day, and I think people realised he was not endorsing Malema and this song, just talking about protest songs in general.”
U2 are in South Africa as part of a world tour. A spokesman for Bono and the band insisted the singer’s comments were quoted out of context. “If you read the actual transcript, it is clear that Bono’s intention was not as has been reported,” she said.
Bono and U2 were part of a collection of musicians including Keith Richards and Ron Wood from the Rolling Stones who formed Artists United Against Apartheid.
The song Silver and Gold, on U2’s 1988 album Rattle and Hum, was written to boost the fight against apartheid.”

Additional notes – Cameron’s Full Quote in response to Putin’s derogatory comment about Britain being a ‘small island’, with no influence. Not a fan of Cameron, but the quotes appropriate, and he’s spot on!
“Let me be clear – Britain may be a small island, but I would challenge anyone to find a country with a prouder history, a bigger heart or greater resilience.
“Britain is an island that has helped to clear the European continent of fascism and was resolute in doing that throughout the Second World War.
“Britain is an island that helped to abolish slavery, that has invented most of the things worth inventing, including every sport currently played around the world, that still today is responsible for art, literature and music that delights the entire world.
“We are very proud of everything we do as a small island – a small island that has the sixth-largest economy, the fourth best-funded military, some of the most effective diplomats, the proudest history, one of the best records for art and literature and contribution to philosophy and world civilisation.”
