This story has been getting little to no attention in the lamestream corporate controlled media, but it's a story I have to comment on, for the African National Congress that runs South Africa, is becoming radicalized and is getting ready to seize the farms of white people in that country. There are some reports that this has already begun to happen, and there's been another report that will form the substance of today's high octane speculation. Here is one version of the story:
While the action is execrable, it is at least understandable, given South Africa's history. What is not understandable is why there is little to no reporting of this development and its frightening potential implications. I could comment, but I suspect most readers here know what I would say, and that they have similar suspicions as well.
There's a more interesting aspect of this, however, that I wonder about, and it concerns some stories on this development that ran on RT:
There are some interesting between-the-lines implications of the second RT report, in these passages:
The new South African government, led by President Cyril Ramaphosa, has pledged to return the lands owned by white farmers since the 1600s to the black citizens of the country. The government said it is planning to put an end to what it calls the legacy of apartheid, where most of South Africa’s land is still in the hands of its minority white population.
Rights groups have said the initiative incites violence. There were 74 farm murders and 638 attacks, primarily against white farmers, in 2016-17 in South Africa, according to data by minority rights group AfriForum.
The farmers are prepared to make a contribution to Russia’s booming agricultural sector, according to Rossiya 1. Each family is ready to bring up to $100,000 for leasing the land.
Russia has 43 million hectares of unused farmland, and has recently begun giving out free land to Russian citizens to cultivate farming. The land giveaway program, which began in 2014, has been a huge success.
Now, as the reader can imagine, I have all sorts of high octane speculations going through my head, from clever ploys of using the ANC as cats' paws to drive out these farmers to nations that can use their skills and expertise (like Russia), to the disturbing implications of driving people off of land they have owned for over three centuries. But behind all these wild and high octane excursions, I have one fundamental question that no one seems to be asking: Why are these people not seeking refuge in "the land of the free and the home of the brave"? Or for that matter, apparently not seeking refuge in the ancestral homeland of the Netherlands? Or anywhere else in western Europe?
I have no evidence here for what I am about to suggest; in short, I am just plain guessing, so this does not even rise to the level of my usual "high octane speculation". And my guess does not involve anything concerning race, but rather, culture. If I were a Boer family under such threat, the last places I would consider would be the "land of the free and the home of the brave," for the simple reason that its culture is a carefully engineered swamp created over decades by the American "creep state" (big thanks to Ms. K.M. for suggesting that term for the American deep state), with an increasingly shrill radical element advocating violence if it does not get its way. Its constitution is a tattered patchwork of "interpretations" and bureaucratic end runs, its Bill of Rights now a Bill of Wishful Suggestions. The same, I suspect, holds true for their perceptions of Europe, for other than Austria, Italy, and Hungary, Europe appears to be hellbent on the destruction of its culture, and subservient to a technocrat class of bureaucrats in Brussels telling everyone else what to do, think, and how to act. They can smell the foul odor of socialism and all its attendant ills and identity politics and nostrums a mile away. And they don't like what they smell.
Which makes the choice of these 15,000 people - Russia - all the more intriguing. Why Russia? Well, I suspect - and again I'm only guessing - that watching Mon(ster)santo and IG Farbensanto corrupt the American (and pretty much everyone else's, except of course, Russia's) food supply, might have something to do with it. Or again, in Russia, whatever else one might say about the Russian government, it is at least evident that it means to protect and preserve its national and cultural identity, and especially its Christian heritage so intimately bound up with Russian history and culture, something no other European or western country (in the broadest sense of those terms) is willing to do. How Russia responds to a non-Orthodox but Christian population will be an intriguing lesson to watch.
In the final analysis, though, what this story suggests is very telling, and what it suggests does not bode well for the future: people under threat, whose culture is inherently western, who are being forced to make the painful decision of leaving their homes, have weighed the West, and its "leader", America, and found it utterly wanting, and no longer a home.
See you on the flip side...
