Afrikaner on side of Malema

Wiekus Kotze

 

Sometimes we think we’ve seen everything already, but not this time .. what seemed impossible has happened. A Boer-Afrikaner standing next to Malema and the EFF. Called Wiekus Kotze and says he is ready to fight for the EFF and praises Malema saying that this has an extraordinary understanding of the South African economy.
This statement is a lie, Julius Malema knows nothing of the South African economy, its only strategy is nationalizing everything that moves. Nationalization of the mines, nationalization of properties of white etc. Malema just want to create a more bureaucratic and excessive state that discriminates against whites.

He says: “Some of the things you can not even repeat. They told me I was an idiot, a fool, that I was sucking up to black people, that I was a traitor betraying my white skin.
“I only ask Them: ‘What is a white skin? Is your skin color making you higher because if you’re saying I’m betraying the white skin, it simply means you still believe the white skin is superior. I’m saying to them ‘you still suffer from the Verwoerd mentality based on the fact you are white and then, your language is Afrikaans.’

 Wiekus is not na idiot because he’s betraying white skin, he’s na idiot because he’s joining na openly racist party led by a extremist man who only want to take advantage that a white man entry his party to say that he’s not racist. Wiekus is betraying not his skin but his culture, the Boer-Afrikaner culture because he’s on the side of a man that descriminates Afrikaners for being afrikaner and despises our traditions and culture.
Kotze says he wants a reconciliation of South Africa but this is precisely what the EFF is not, the EFF is a party of the confrontation! A party whose leader says, among many controversial interventions that Mandela was too soft with the whites can not be a peaceful party, may not want to reconciliation, on the contrary, promotes racism and discrimination.
EFF Banner
Surely that Kotze who agrees with this banner and that it does not incite violence. This kind of banners that Kotze support and defends…..

179 arrests in Soweto over the weekend

”Johannesburg – A man was arrested on Sunday for the killing of an 86-year-old man in Moletsane, Soweto, Gauteng police said.

The 55-year-old was arrested around 11:00 after community members alerted police to his whereabouts, Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said.

The older man was stabbed to death on Saturday night around 20:00.

The motive was still unclear.

The suspect would appear in the Protea Magistrate’s Court on Monday on a murder charge.

He was one of 179 people who were arrested in Soweto over the weekend for various crimes including rape, driving under the influence of alcohol, possession of dagga, dealing in drugs and the running of unlicensed liquor outlets.”

Commentary

This text shows the wave of violence and crime that affects the South African society. Here we see a clear case of crime among, almost exclusively Black people. South Africa after Apartheid has being always a country ruled by crime. These crimes that we see in Soweto have several different reasons. One is the overpopulation. We clearly see that Soweto has too much population, more than 1.200.000 people and that is too many people for a limited and small amount of recourses, water, food, and in an area that is suited for a much smaller population, just 200.03 square kilometers. These overpopulation of Soweto has is rots traced back to Apartheid when many blacks congregate in that area without any control. But the truth is that even after Apartheid the population continued to increase immense getting from 858.644 habitants in 2001 for 1.271.628 which is an increase of 48.1%. And the Soweto is not the only large city in the Gauteng region with these conditions because we have also Temblaa, Kathehong, Soanhanguve and Mamelodi all of them very poor and large black cities. Of course these habitants, being them habitants already in 2001, children born in these years or migrates to the city live in a large poverty. That shows the ANC has not any notion of urban planeament. For us is important to being implemented policies to create a better urban planeament because those policies are required to increase the living conditions in those cities because it helps reducing the crime levels.

The use of preservative should also be encouragared because many of those babies are born without any family planning in horrible conditions, conditions that propitiate that they will become criminals in the future. Definitely it is required policies of family planeament to avoid situations in which 5 or more children are born without their parents having any conditions to sustain them. However the ANC politicians don’t care with this because for them as long they are in the government they are fine. And we even think that some far left groups, as the EFF, could want this because they want to create a race war in South Africa and so they want more and more youth blacks in order to kill whites. So it’s also a thing that affects the Boer-Afrikaners because many of those youth and very poor blacks are easily attracted by the ideas of people as Julius Malema because he promise to them wealth and land and they easily begin to think that the whites are the enemy because they are more rich in average than the average black and saw them as the oppressors because of Apartheid.

The fact of this youths grow in an environment dominated by crime influence them being criminals in the future because they education is bad, many of them don’t have a paternal or maternal figure in their lives and others simple follow the deviant behavior of friends or family members.

So we think that it is essential to the authorities to give to the people that live in those cities, better education, better living conditions, a better urban planning to increase the live quality and enhance the environment, lessons about family planning and an effective sentence to the criminals focusing in the sentence but also is rehabilitation.

FW De Klerk criticizes the racist policy of ANC

FW De Klerk

 

The last white president of South Africa, Frederik Willem De Klerk that has already been spoken here on the blog (https://afrikanerway.wordpress.com/2013/12/27/about-de-klerks-transition/) said the ANC was promoting discriminatory policies based on race. This statement is very important, but it happened to late, wasn’t only now that the ANC promoted racist policies, for some time now that this is true and since the ANC took power in 1994 there has been a certain permissibility towards racist attacks on whites, especially Afrikaners.
Not only in crime that has been seen an increase in discrimination and racism but especially in access to work, whites (because they are white) are discriminated  and aren’t  allowed in certain types of jobs,  Wthat society is being built?? A society with equality of opportunities or a society based on racial quotas?

De Klerk, in his speech, says something we consider important:

“The main Beneficiaries of affirmative action and black economic empowerment have been the emerging black middle class and elite – and not the vast Majority of truly disadvantaged South Africans.”

This phrase could not be more true and needed to be told, who were the main beneficiaries with BBB were the black middle and upper class that managed to further enrich and continue to enrich, the biggest losers were eventually the white middle class working in public functions and was fired to give place to blacks and many of them(the afrikaners) now live in squatter camps.

De Klerk in his speech also addresses the issue of inequality-Our Gini coefficient of 0.7 makes us one of the most unequal societies in the world, this is something important since South Africa is a more unequal country, the black average life expectancy has fallen in relation to the time of apartheid (which is surreal) while a small class of extremely wealthy corrupt blacks emerged and this shows that the equity policies of the ANC failed, and also fail the fight against corruption since that in the transparency ranking South Africa is constantly dropping positions

This denunciation De Klerk is important and it is important that people have the courage to do so, have the courage to point out all the mistakes and failures of the ANC, however, we mustn’t forget that De Klerk had a role in this situation of discrimination that’s happening in South Africa.

FW De Klerk in the early 90s could have negotiated the establishment of a Boer state and then be in an advantageous position to do so and did not, here’s the result …

Dutch influence in the Boer-Afrikaner culture

VOC

NGKerk

 

The Dutch influence in the Boer-Afrikaner culture was the biggest of all the people that influence the Boer-Afrikaner culture and people. It was the Dutch people that founded the Cape Colony, by Jan van Riebeeck in 1652. The administration was in charge of the Dutch Company of East Indies the Verenigde Oostindische Compagnie,VOC. The Cape Colony was part of a larger Dutch Empire in the Indian Ocean that included colonies in Indian and the actual Indonesia, known as Batavia. It was frequent the administrators and businessman of the time to circle between those different colonies. The Cape Colony was since its beginning a settler colony. Among the people that arrive at the Dutch Cape Colony there was not only Dutchman but also the 200 French and Walloon Huguenot refugees, Flemish and also many German workers of the VOC. After years serving the VOC the employees could gain to right to have a piece of land on which they had to cultivate crops that they had to sell to the Dutch East Company for a fixed price. They were known as Vryburghers, free citizens. Due to the authoritarian rule of the VOC some Vryburgher revolted against them and try to escape to the VOC control by going further inland. The VOC founded two new divisions in Swellendam and in Graaff-Reinet to control those Trekboere but they continued to expanded northeast in the direction of the Oranje River and they only stopped in the Great Fish River in 1780 in an agreement firmed with the VOC. Those Trekboere were the first developing the Boer-Afrikaner culture and the Afrikaans language as a different culture and language of the Dutch. In 1795 the colony was occupied by the British after the Battle of Muizenberg. In 1803 they return to Dutch power being this time directly managed by the Batavian Republic. However the breaking out of the Napoleonic Wars the Colony was again occupied by the British in 1806, after the Battle of Blaauwberg. This transfer was confirmed with the Anglo-Dutch treaty in 1814.The Dutch were no longer in Africa but there influence was decisive to the creation of the Boer-Afrikaner culture.

One of the biggest influences of the Dutch was on the genetic of the Boer-Afrikaner. Around 35 to 40% of the Afrikaners blood is of Dutch origin (including Flemish). However is interesting to see that, because of all the openness in the Cape Colony many of the people who came to the Colony where not Dutch and so most of the Boer-Afrikaners blood is not of Dutch origin despite being the biggest genetic origin, contrary to what some people think. Naturally some of the most well-known Afrikaner surname are of Dutch origin as Van Rensburg, Van Wyk, Prinsloo, Van Zyl, Smit, De Beer, Swanepoel, Van der Merwe, Swart, Strydom, Van Rooyen or Oosthuizen

Another area in which Nederland’s influenced a lot the Boer-Afrikaner culture was the language. The Dutch language was the official language at the Dutch Cape Colony, later on the British Cape Colony and at the same time in the Boer republics of the Oranje Vry Staat and the Transvaal. Even with the creation of South Africa Dutch continued to be the official language until 1925 time in which was replaced by Afrikaans. The Afrikaans language was developed from Dutch. It begin to be developed in the XVIII century by the Trekboers. The language was developed because of the big isolation of these Dutch speakers from Nederland’s and it was the spoken language when they still use the Dutch as the written language. Despite some influences of other languages 90 to 95% of the Afrikaans words are of Dutch origin some of them slightly modified but exists mutual legibility between the two languages, despite some difficulties of the Afrikaans speakers with the Dutch grammar and of Dutch speakers with the Afrikaans accent. The accent is based on the accent of the South of Nederland’s but has also influences of the Northwest German accent and of the Flemish accent. The accent varies from region to region.

Finally the Dutch influence a lot the Boer-Afrikaners in the religion. The main churches of the history of the Boer-Afrikaner people are Dutch Reformed churches, the Nederduitse Gereformeerde Kerk, the Nederduitsch Hervomde Kerk, official church of the old ZAR, and the Reformed Churches in South Africa are there biggest. These churches are based in the Dutch Reformed Church founded in the XVI century influenced by the ideas of John Calvin, Jacobus Arminius and other protestant reformers. The Dutch churches also open congregations in the Cape Colony and later in the Boer republics. In the Cape Colony the Dutch settlers but also the French Huguenot settlers created an Afrikaner Calvinism, more conservative than the Dutch, that influenced since then the history of the Boer-Afrikaner people in great moments as the Great Trek in which the Boers trekked because they think that the Vry Staat and the Transvaal will be the promise land for the chosen people. Later in the XIX century the Boer Calvinism separate from the Afrikaner Calvinism because of the Great Trek and the creation of the Boer Republics. During the XX the Reformed Church’s were not critic of the Apartheid, just in the end, giving to it more credibility.

The Dutch influence in the Boer-Afrikaner culture and in his people is very big and it was structural to it’s creation. We can say that without the Dutch and the VOC it will not exist the Boer-Afrikaner people and this post is a way to remember their decisive role in the Boer-Afrikaners history.
