On Monday thousands of white South Africans participated in protests against ‘farm attacks’ and ‘farm murders’. The ongoing genocide of whites in South Africa, and in particular white farmers, has escalated in the past few months, with whites now being attacked and brutally slaughtered on a daily basis. Even during the protests of Monday morning, news broke of another black-on-white murder, and within 48 hours after the protests took place, another three white farmers lost their lives in attacks by blacks.
The protests were dubbed Black Monday, and all participants wore black in sympathy with those who had been killed. In the protest I attended, which was by no means the largest, about 3000 vehicles drove in a convoy on the country’s main national road for five miles. Despite the media’s attempt to ignore the protests, it made international headlines.
Here are a few thoughts on the significance of the protests in the current context of South Africa. First, the positives:
- Rural white Afrikaners are clearly angry, dissatisfied, and frustrated with the current state of affairs, and there is a feeling of urgency. All agree that, as it stands, the current political system is a miserable failure.
- Our people have woken up to the reality that the 1990s ideal of South Africa as a multicultural utopia has never been realized.
- When a speaker at the event denounced pacifism on biblical grounds and claimed that it is our duty to defend our kin and property, he was met with loud cheers.
- During the protests the people’s sympathy for, and solidarity with, fellow Afrikaners who have suffered at the hand of black attacks was prominent.
However, there are still a few negative aspects that need to be highlighted to give a holistic picture of the protests in the context of our people’s desire for continued existence in South Africa:
- There was still a lot of cucking on display during the event. Some protestors brought black friends along – a forced gesture given the context – in order to show how anti-racist they are.
- Many even still see ‘racism’ as the problem. A common argument is that South Africans need to build bridges across racial lines in order to overcome hatred. This fails to realize that the godless, multicultural society we find ourselves in is inherently destructive. Many are sadly still either antagonistic to the idea of ethnic self-determination or regard it is unpractical. Yet, secession and self-determination remain the only means out of a state in which we make up less than 8% of the total population.
- Many still refuse to repent and turn to Christ for deliverance. He is our true Leader and King, and disloyalty to his commands means all our endeavours will ultimately end in failure. No army can function and expect victory if the commands of the great general are disregarded.
- Many still believe the media narrative that the problem is ‘crime in general’ rather than an orchestrated genocide, or any deliberate pattern of black-on-white malice. Liberal media claims that more blacks than whites are murdered in South Africa contribute to this misconception.
Against this misconception, firstly, one needs to consider that it is an indisputable fact that black countries and areas, regardless of socioeconomic circumstances or religious composition, are always more violent than white societies. Blacks murder blacks. Blacks murder whites. But whites, the very rare exception notwithstanding, don’t murder blacks. Thus, the amount of blacks killed in South Africa is irrelevant to the claim that whites are being genocided. If blacks’ malice cannot contain itself even against their own people, that doesn’t change the fact that it is clearly directed, usually with greater intensity, against whites.
Secondly, the brutal nature of the attacks, along with the frequent absence of property damage or thefts during these crimes, points to the deliberate and orchestrated nature of this genocide. There is no doubt that whites are being specifically targeted with the purpose of extermination.
My people are currently very angry and frustrated. Many, however, are still confused about what the right course of action is. Our prayer should be that the fire burning inside us will, by God’s grace and guidance, lead to real, productive action in our continuing struggle for freedom.
