A campaign to publicly protest the genocide and oppression of white people in South Africa has finally been launched. The Red October campaign will stage marches in opposition to the oppressive anti-white government of South Africa on the 10th of October, the birthday of one of the greatest statesmen in Boer history, President Paul Kruger. In a note on its Facebook page, the organizers defend the choice of the campaign’s name which, at first glance, might arouse suspicion from the traditionalist:
Now, this is NOT Russia and we are NOT a bunch of communists but we are facing all of these difficulties, and more at the moment, and RED OCTOBER, in essence, is about revolt! …about rising up against what is wrong and taking a stand.
The ANC and the SACP have both used the name ‘Red October’ to brand some of their campaigns. Campaigns that completely excluded white South Africans in its motives and outcome.
What better than to highjack the terminology of our enemies and use their weapons against them? What better than to create an event so big that all future references to this term will point to the uprising and revolt of an Ethnic Minority that could no longer tolerate an incompetent government! What better than to flood the internet with references to RED OCTOBER where searches from all over the world of this well known term, will be directed to OUR Red October?
To date, events have been organized in thirty-five cities and towns across South Africa, in addition to four events having been organized in the United States, Australia, and New Zealand each, and one each in London, England, and Ostrava, Czech Republic. One is also being planned for The Hague in the Netherlands. This campaign has long been overdue, as the ongoing genocide of the Afrikaner-Boer and the Anglo-South African people poses a realistic threat to their continued existence. Therefore, the fact that an event of this scale and magnitude opposes the status quo is indeed encouraging.
In the past I have criticized Afrikaner self-determination movements for being too humanistic, and, sadly, the trend seems to be continued by the Red October campaign, as a list of demands to the government in its proposed memorandum proves. For example, the memorandum goes on endlessly about poor public services, but fails to mention the persecution of Christians by the government; it repeatedly talks about an “incompetent” government, but fails to mention the far more pressing concern that the government is at enmity with the white man. In addition to the use of Marxist rhetoric, which would allow the Marxist government to continue to dictate debate, many of the issues the campaign address are side-issues that blur the the core reason for the dismal state of our people: namely, a moral decline away from our traditional religious duties. Conveners of the event scheduled to take place in Warner Beach, South Africa, even publicly stated that the official press release by Red October is merely a guideline, and that all minority groups who feel the need to raise their voice are invited to participate in their event “irrespective of race or creed.” Taking all of this in consideration, I’m forced (shamefully) to conclude that, despite our terrible situation, the right among the Boer people still lag behind the European right in its advocacy of traditionalism as the antidote to the current decline of the West. This is true even despite church attendance being generally higher among Boers, which should tell you something about the state of the church. Christ’s kingship is not officially acknowledged by the Red October campaign, yet it is encouraging that at least one local convener has publicly confirmed that the event scheduled for Lichtenburg, South Africa, will be accompanied by prayer and repentance, in addition to raising funds for aiding the poorest among our white kinsmen.
Nonetheless, the prevailing neglect of the spiritual dimension of the battle of our people, as evidenced by the Red October campaign, can be placed at the feet of the R2K pastors of the Dutch “Reformed” Churches, who brought about this mentality among the Boer people and who will, on Judgment Day, be held accountable for the fall of this nation.
Despite the weaknesses of the campaign, which cannot be overlooked, I nonetheless plan on attending a march here in South Africa. I encourage others to do the same, but I do this with the purpose of witnessing for the glory of God – thereby being instrumental in His sanctification of the event. This, to me, is the sober and qualified perspective which a Christian ethnonationalist should have regarding Red October.
