A Racist Communist Famine Grows in South Africa
Leftist land seizures and racist politics will lead to

passionately about "the politics of fear and resentment" at the
Mandela Lecture. He worried that we were entering a world, “where might makes

While the media used
the remarks to attack Trump's meeting with Putin, Obama had shared a stage with
South African President Cyril Ramaphosa who had come to power promising to
seize land from white farmers. Ramaphosa was the latest in a series of ANC
strongmen, including his predecessor, an alleged rapist, beginning with the
Communist terrorist whose legacy Obama was commemorating.
had vowed early on to seize land from white farmers without compensation.
"The expropriation of land without compensation is envisaged as one of the
measures that we will use to accelerate redistribution of land to black South
Africans,” he had declared. And denied that such racist Communist tactics were
unconstitutional. Now he’s moving to modify South Africa’s constitution.
Initially, the ANC,
which is partnered with the South African Communist Party, had claimed that
seizing land would not violate the law. Now it’s actually going to change the
South African constitution.
“It has become
pertinently clear that our people want the constitution to be more explicit
about expropriation of land without compensation,” President Ramaphosa
When your only rule
is mob rule by ANC thugs, it doesn’t really matter what a piece of paper says.
“We will accelerate
our land redistribution programme not only to redress a grave historical
injustice, but also to bring more producers into the agricultural sector and to
make more land available for cultivation,” Ramaphosa claimed in his State of
the Nation address.
Zimbabwe had already
made great strides in improving agriculture through land seizures.
Land was stolen from
the farmers who knew how to work it and handed out to politically connected
thugs. Soon the former "bread basket" of Southern Africa was
starving. Black groups pleaded
with the white farmers to remain. Rural Zimbabwe died. Hyperinflation made the
currency worthless. A trillion dollars might not be enough to buy one egg. A
former food exporter was forced to rely on food aid.

greedy to do the hard work of working the land.
agricultural sector will go the way of Zimbabwe.
Cyril Ramaphosa is
one of South Africa's richest men and has an estimated net worth of $550
million. How did a socialist student activist make a mint? The answer is an
inevitable as it is unsurprising.
agricultural sector has
been steadily in decline. Farms used to provide millions of jobs. Now they
offer less than a million. Wheat planting has
fallen to a third. Cotton to a tenth. A country that once exported wheat,
now importing millions of tons while its agriculture sector fails.
The decline of South
Africa’s agriculture has gone hand in hand with what it euphemistically calls
its land reforms. White farmers have been murdered or driven off their land.
But land seizures, legal and illegal, with compensation or with a hatchet,
haven’t made South African agriculture more productive.
Instead South Africa
is becoming increasingly dependent on agricultural imports to feed its people.
Like Zimbabwe, South
Africa is due to revisit the same implacable economic consequences of land
seizures that took the Soviet Union down the road to famine and terror. Toward
its end, the USSR, despite possessing territories that had once bulged with
rich harvests, had gone deep into debt to buy food from the United States. The
African National Congress’ Communist roots are taking South Africa down the
same path as its fallen Communist masters. And with the same miserable

Comrade Ramaphosa, as
Comrade Mandela liked to call him, is less of a strongman, than a weak man.
More afraid of thugs like Julius Malema and the greed of his ANC comrades than
of dooming his people to hunger. The ANC is populated with thugs who are
impatiently waiting to loot South Africa’s corpse. And they’ve grown tired of
pretending that they are anything more than a failed state’s Marxist mob.
gambit is a desperate attempt to legitimize racist mob violence and ANC
corruption. It takes the constant assaults on white farmers and tries to
disguise lawlessness under the color of law.
1 white farmer in
South Africa has been murdered every 5 days. This ethnic cleansing has been
going on with the same regular clockwork as the tributes to Nelson Mandela and
his even more murderous wife. The racist violence, the murders, rapes and land
seizures, the chants of, “Shoot the Boer” are backed by lies about a shadow
white majority somehow still ruling South Africa even after all the years of
The media frequently
repeats fake news statistics which claim that white farmers own 70% or more of
the country’s farmland. The actual number is less than a quarter. Some of the
best land in South Africa is already in black hands. And, just as in Zimbabwe,
it hasn’t remedied the agricultural or social problems.
agricultural sector is already on its deathbed. Its corrupt economy is
incapable of competing on the world stage. Its exports are not at issue, its
ability to feed its own people is. Aggressive land seizures won’t do much
more damage to South Africa’s economy, though it will discourage investors and
drive out more white farmers, but will bring its society to its knees.
Meanwhile the plight
of South Africa’s white farmers continues to be ignored. The ANC genocide has
been slowly unfolding for a generation with the complicity of the same leftist
leaders who covered up Communist genocides in the Soviet Union, Communist China
and Cambodia. But this latest legitimization of land seizures by the ANC will
only encourage a further outpouring of racist attacks on white farmers.
Affairs Minister Peter Dutton has urged helping the persecuted white farmers of
South Africa receive political asylum. But while every “persecuted” group is
fast tracked for asylum, the door still remains shut for a productive
population that has been targeted for economic ethnic cleansing.
In his State of the
Nation speech, President Ramaphos declared, “We are building a country where a
person’s prospects are determined by their own initiative and hard work, and
not by the color of their skin, place of birth, gender, language or income of
their parents.” Seizing land from people because of the color of their skin and
giving it to those who haven’t worked for it is the opposite of that vision.
And yet it’s easy to
see why Obama was so comfortable with a politician who could twist the language
of equality to justify identity politics theft and the verbiage of tolerance to
justify racial oppression.
South Africa, like
the Soviet Union and Venezuela, like Cambodia and Cuba, is not just an
atrocity, it’s a cautionary tale. Ideology, more than race, connects the
scattered strands of the leftist killing fields. To pretend that what happened
there cannot happen here would be ignoring the lessons of history.
And a new red famine
is growing where the red blood of white farmers flows into the dying earth.
