A Civilization Dies

Black Lives Matter is currently the most powerful political force in America. Watching the ascendancy of these maniacs as they burn, loot, vandalize, and spout vicious race hate makes you wonder about their end game. Here are two clues as to where this is headed: (1) BLM demands effectively unlimited black immigration as well as a “guaranteed minimum livable income” for all blacks, a combination sure to draw vast numbers; and (2) South Africa.

The media hasn’t paid much attention to South Africa since a black communist terrorist was put in charge of the country in 1994. We were told everyone would live happily ever after. Katie Hopkins brings us up to date:

Eighty-four farm attacks since lockdown began, twelve white farmers slaughtered from their land. The footage of the aftermath of one of the attacks circulating on Telegram and sent to me — too brutal to share. …

As many of us celebrated the 4th of July this weekend, there were three murders in two days, one of them so unspeakably cruel that even those hardened to the news of torture of farmers by black gangs have found themselves white-knuckled at the speed of the horror.

Whites are routinely killed for skin color. The government takes little interest.

Europeans first arrived in South Africa in the 1600s. They created an advanced country, so affluent that Africans poured into it from other parts of the continent. Now they comprise a tiny percentage of the population, and will soon be snuffed out altogether.

Progressives will celebrate the death of the last white farmer. By then, South Africa will be a basket case, reliant on international welfare for food like its forerunner Rhodesia, the erstwhile Breadbasket of Africa that is now known as Zimbabwe.

Why don’t the last whites leave? Because they have been farming the land for centuries. The land is all some of them have.

Also, where would they go? They would not be as welcome as other immigrants, due to Cultural Marxism.

Australia discussed giving them amnesty until the liberals declared the idea racist. The rest of the world rejects these murders as a far-right conspiracy or myth.

So they stick it out with their characteristic resilience.

Many are preparing for a final fight and talk about the “last stand” with determination. Most sleep with a loaded weapon under their pillow, stealing themselves for death if it should come. They won’t die without a fight.

Let’s hope the last generation of Caucasians in North America goes out with as much courage.

South Africa Sentences Journalist to Prison Because Coronavirus

Small wonder that authoritarians love COVID-19 so much that they employed the Flatten the Curve strategy to keep it going as long as possible. The virus — or rather the hysteria it has allowed the media to generate — is a carte blanche for those who want to expand the growth, scope, and power of the State. South Africa demonstrates how it can be used to lock up pesky journalists:

The editor of the Mohokare News community newspaper in Ficksburg [South Africa], a town on the border with Lesotho, Paul Nthoba fled across the border into this small enclaved nation on 19 May, four days after being repeatedly assaulted by Ficksburg police in connection with his coverage of a lockdown enforcement operation.

Nthoba was initially punched and kicked by police while covering the operation in a Ficksburg township on 15 May. He told [Reporters Without Borders] that he went to Ficksburg police station the same day to file a complaint, but was punched and kicked again and was detained for several hours.

He reported this to the watchdog Independent Police Investigative Directorate. Bad move. He thought they would protect him…

Instead, he was charged with violating lockdown regulations and is facing up to six months in prison under the Disaster Management Act, as amended in April to deal with the coronavirus pandemic.

Per Bing’s COVID-19 tracker, South Africa’s death toll stands at a trivial 397 out of a population of 58 million. That comes to one death for every 146,000 people — 1,000 times as rare as Africans who are born with six fingers on a hand (one in 143).

But it doesn’t matter if coronavirus is a serious threat. Once the herd has been spooked, anything goes.

YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki will love this:

The emergency measures [South Africa] has adopted include the possibility of up to six months in prison for disseminating “false information” about the epidemic.

The tactic of imprisoning reporters for violating quarantine won’t be as useful in the USA, where virtually all journalists worship Big Government like a god, and do whatever they can to grow and empower it.

Democrats Can Learn From Africa Regarding COVID-19 Tyranny

If Democrats ever run out of bizarre arbitrary decrees to impose in the name of ChiCom virus hysteria (e.g., Gretchen Whitmer banning the sale of garden seeds, J. B. Pritzker forbidding more than two people from sitting in a boat), they can turn to South Africa for ideas:

South African stores can only sell shoes if they are “closed toe,” and short-sleeved shirts if they are promoted or displayed to be worn under jackets or jerseys, according to the latest list of government rules that spell out what’s allowed during a nationwide lockdown.

This actually represents a lightening of COVID-19 tyranny in the Rainbow Utopia.

South Africa, which has diagnosed 11,350 coronavirus cases, first imposed a lockdown in late March, banning the sale of most goods besides groceries and medical supplies. The government eased the restrictions from May 1, allowing the sale of winter clothing and bedding to resume.

Those 11,350 cases are out of a population of over 58,775,000 — i.e., less than 1 in 5,000 South Africans have tested positive. According to Bing’s COVID-19 tracker, there have been 219 fatal cases. That’s 1 in 268,379 citizens. More South Africans are probably dying from drinking engine cleaning fluid than of the Wuhan coronavirus. But you never want to let a crisis go to waste.

The rules don’t have to make any sense. Not much having to do with lockdowns does, other than lifting them. Petty tyranny is its own reward, as any Democrat governor can tell you (e.g., Whitmer, Pritzker, Kate Brown, Janet Mills, Gavin Newsom, Andrew Cuomo).

Dems can turn to elsewhere in Africa for ideas regarding punishment:

Authorities in Nigeria demolished two hotels in its southern Rivers state on Sunday after they were accused of breaking lockdown rules meant to limit the spread of the coronavirus, according to a report.

State Governor Nyesom Wike said the managers of the Edemete Hotel and Prodest Home were arrested after they reportedly disregarded an order that hotels should be closed.

That tops what Whitmer’s regime did to hero barber Karl Manke, suspending the 77-year-old patriot’s license to cut hair but neglecting to arrest him and to bulldoze his building as an example to other potential rebels.

According to the owner of Prodest Home, the hotel wasn’t even open. Officials came in and demanded bribes, payment of which would have allowed the hotel to operate. But he didn’t have the money, so they reduced the place to a pile of rubble. Life inevitably gets to be like that where government is not restricted.

State officials reportedly also plan on auctioning vehicles seized from lockdown violators, according to the BBC.

Why didn’t Whitmer think of that?

Possible inspiration for Democrats.

Schools Burned Down During Lockdown in South Africa

Wuhan coronavirus lockdown has accelerated some alarming trends, including Big Government dependency and authoritarianism in the USA and the collapse of civilization in South Africa:

Another school was burnt down in Soshanguve in Tshwane on Wednesday morning, making it the fourth school in the area to be destroyed during the nationwide lockdown.

Soshanguve High School has been burned to ruins after the fire destroyed the school’s administration block, as well as valuable equipment and furniture, according to Gauteng Department of Education spokesperson Steve Mabona. …

In total, 22 schools in Gauteng have been vandalised since the beginning of the lockdown.

One day whites will stop paying to have new schools constructed. At last the land will be truly decolonized. In the meantime, arsonists will continue to advance educational equity.

Even BBC Admits South Africa Is Rotting

They promised that putting Commies of Color in charge would transform South Africa into heaven on earth. Instead, things turned out so badly that even left-wing BBC has noticed that the country “seems to be rotting from the bottom up.”

Welcome to Harrismith, a small town in the Rainbow Utopia:

Enjoy plumbing and electricity while you can. Preserving the sort of country that can provide them on a reliable basis is not on the progressive agenda. In Zimbabwe, which is a few miles ahead of South Africa on the same road, 60% of water sources are unsafe according to UNICEF.

How South Africa Is Achieving Educational Equity

The moonbat utopia that has been established in South Africa continues to lead the world in education reform (see here, here, here, here, here). Now an ingenious method that draws on indigenous traditions opens the door to absolute equity in academic achievement. The genius of the plan lies in its simplicity. All the students get good grades, or they burn down the school.

Even now, some bureaucrats are not on board with the new approach…

The KwaZulu-Natal Department of Education has condemned the burning down of Zwelinjani Secondary School in Durban, after pupils allegedly became enraged over poor marks they had received.

As usual, no arrests were made.

“We … will not reward anarchy by building another school, when in fact it was destroyed deliberately”‘, MEC [Member of the Executive Council] Kwazi Mshengu said.

In the end, there is no other way to attain absolute equity in educational achievement than for there to be no education. Disintegrating South Africa is well on the way.

South Africa Follows Formula for Failure; Will USA?

Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad. Countries the gods would destroy, they turn over to moonbats. South Africa is an illustrative case in point. Due to moonbattery, the Rainbow Utopia is destined to be an unhappy country:

This is the view of Efficient Group founder and chief economist Dawie Roodt, who was speaking at an event hosted by the Free Market Foundation.

Unhappy countries follow an established path to economic ruin:

1. Destroy the existing capital in the country.

2. Frighten the taxpayers by continuing to increase taxes.

3. Scare savers by targeting their money.

4. The country tries to inflate itself out of debt.

The resulting hyperinflation destroys the economy and thereby the country.

Capital destruction is accomplished by confiscating money and then wasting it.

The reason for this capital destruction is simple – politicians want money to execute their ideologies and for self-enrichment.

When cash inevitably runs low, the politicians raise taxes.

Roodt explained that even when the government increases taxes further, they will not increase tax collection much, as the taxpayers are already overburdened.

Refer to the Laffer Curve for an illustration.

Since taxes can’t pay the bills, they come after savings.

Roodt said this is happening in South Africa with the ANC’s prescribed assets plans, which will give politicians control of pension funds and where this money is invested.

Big Government is like a forest fire. The more fuel it finds, the hotter it burns, the more fuel it demands. Soon not even enslaving people through excessive taxation and looting them by confiscating their savings will suffice. The deficit keeps growing, since there is literally no limit to how much money government can waste on counterproductive projects like the Welfare State. That’s when politicians hyperinflate the currency to pay down the debt.

This, Roodt said, is the reason why the ANC wants to get control over the SA Reserve Bank (SARB), because if you can control the SARB you can get rid of your debt.

This is not conjecture. The cretins who have been put in control of South Africa are sometimes straightforward about their policy. To quote Nhlanhla Nene, former Minister of Finance:

“Our people are poor because there is a shortage of money in the country. It’s not the shortage of jobs that makes people poor, it is the shortage of money. We have paper and ink, so we will print more money and give it to the poor, and make all of them billionaires if that is possible.”

This is liberal economic policy boiled down to its purest essence.

When everyone is a billionaire, no one is a billionaire, because the currency is worthless. But at least there is equity in destitution for everyone who is not part of the socialist government.

There is no part of this formula for failure that Democrats will not follow if given the opportunity, even if they are less straightforward about it than Nene. As went Zimbabwe and Venezuela, so goes South Africa, so will go the USA if they are not kept from power.

Satanic Art Displayed at Christian School

On the surface, moonbattery often seems moronic and nauseating but well-meaning. Scratch that surface, and something darker comes to light. This darkness was on open display at Grantleigh, a private Christian school near Richards Bay, South Africa.

Apostolic Faith Mission pastor Andrew Anderson posted video of an appalling art exhibit at the school.

Via News 24:

A matric pupil’s interpretation of Italian renaissance painter and inventor Leonard da Vinci’s Last Supper had him almost in tears, with Jesus depicted as a clown as he breaks bread for the last time before his crucifixion, with dollar signs painted on the lintel behind him.

The disciples are people and animals, with hats, sunglasses and some with horns.

Torn strips of the Bible feature in another work.

Panning over images that included a work inspired by Michelangelo’s Renaissance work The Creation of Adam painted on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, Anderson was overcome with emotion at the image of a clown leaning out of the cloud for the iconic finger touch imagery.

It used to be artists created. In this age, they tear down, desecrate, and destroy.

The school’s ethos is “To God be the glory.” This is not glorious:

The demonic art exhibit has been taken down due to public outcry, proving that pushback still works. However, if the disease has not been cured, symptoms soon reemerge.

Foreigners Targeted in South African Looting

Now that whites have turned over the country they created, there is no more racism in South Africa. Everyone lives together as brothers and sisters. Except that they had better not be white people. Or foreigners.

From News24:

Foreign-owned shops were targeted in Soweto as some residents went on a looting spree on Wednesday evening.

By late night, reports of looting were still coming in.

Police spokesperson Captain Kay Makhubele confirmed the incidents in Zola, Emdeni, Moletsane, White City, Zondi and Rockville.

Oddly, despite the obsession the Western media had with South Africa before the fall of Apartheid, items like this never seem to qualify as international news.

South African Police Lose Their Guns and Ammo

How is a criminal to acquire guns and ammo in a society that has completely succumbed to leftism? Once again, the rainbow utopia of South Africa shows us the way:

Beeld reported that 41% of police officers (8,731 out of 21,206) who were assessed failed their annual shooting test. …

Lieutenant-General Elias Mawela blamed the poor performance on a lack of ammunition for training…

Now why might they be short on ammunition?

Since 2013, the SA Police Service “lost” 4,357 firearms and an incredible 9.6 million rounds of ammunition.

Lost ammunition is likely to be found on the black market.

Police officers who can’t pass the shooting test have to hand in their weapons. Meanwhile, violent crime in South Africa continues to shoot through the stratosphere.

Fortunately, there is still some remnant of a free market in South Africa. There are 2½ private security guards for every police officer in the country. However, they too will have to turn in their guns eventually, as will all law-abiding private citizens, if the country continues to tailspin into leftism.

Before long, only criminals will be armed.

South Africa Tourism Minister: Come Visit

Never mind the violence, often explicitly targeting whites, that has been exploding as the rainbow utopia tailspins into ruin. South Africa Tourism Minister Mmamakolo Kubayi-Ngubane wants you to come visit.

Forget the rash of tourist robberies and even the stabbing death of Ukrainian tourist Ivan Ivanov. Kubayi-Ngubane assures prospective visitors:

“In relation to the incidents that have happened recently, we are happy that police have taken action to ensure that the perpetrators are arrested within reasonable time.”

See? Nothing to worry about. Although I don’t think Arnold Schwarzenegger will go back soon. Also, tourists may want to steer clear of KwaZulu-Natal, where guests had to be evacuated from a resort last December after it was stormed by hundreds of savages wielding crude weapons.

At least they should keep getting visitors from China. Air traffic between China and Africa is up 630% over the past decade. This is because, as whites are driven out, the Chinese are filling the vacuum as the new colonialists, making use of debt-trap diplomacy to secure leverage. Africa’s resources are too valuable to leave in the ground.

A Future Without Healthcare

We have seen what kind of sanitation we can expect in our African future. Now let’s look at healthcare.

Jubilee Hospital in Hammanskraal has been named the worst hospital in Gauteng, South Africa following a social media campaign. Judging by public responses to the campaign, other hospitals will soon achieve the same standard of dysfunction.

Pholosong hospital in Tsakane was described as an “abattoir”. …

At Bheki Mlangeni, one person said, people “die by the hundreds” each month, “even in waiting queues”.

Kopanong Hospital is described as a “pre-mortuary hospital.”

One respondent at Sebokeng Hospital lost a loved one “due to nurses’ ignorance”, while Tambo Memorial was described as “dirty, overcrowded” with “lazy, rude and incompetent” staff.

One person described Far East hospital as “Far Death”, and another said that at Rahima Moosa Mother and Child Hospital “mothers die with their newborn babies”.

This time we are not talking about eternally savage Uganda but South Africa, a land that was mainly settled by Europeans and that prior to the end of Apartheid was a wealthy First World country.

Unemployment in South Africa

Under the leadership of supposed racist Donald Trump, the USA has seen black unemployment fall to record lows. Let’s see how it’s doing in black-ruled post-Apartheid South Africa, where liberals got their way:

Persistent unemployment has become synonymous with the youth experience across South Africa. Youth unemployment rates are almost four times higher than the regional average – 62% of South Africans between 15 and 35 years are unemployed and of these 60% have never been employed.

Add to this the fact that even those who have jobs are earning below what is considered to be a monthly living wage and what emerges is youth employment crisis.

They could work on farms, but many don’t want to. There is a social stigma against it. The work is too hard, and Big Agribusiness is run by white racists. Fortunately, confiscating land owned for centuries by whites and handing it to blacks is sure to resolve this problem, just like it did in the erstwhile Breadbasket of Africa, Zimbabwe.

Mariandra Heunis: The Face of South Africa

Liberal journalists were all over South Africa back when they had it in their social justice warrior crosshairs. Once they got their way, having helped Nelson Mandela to power, they moved on to other agenda items. The pointless horror that has predictably unfolded in the aftermath of their sanctimonious jihad goes all but unreported. Few outside the country know what is happening in the lives of people like Mariandra Heunis:

Mariandra Heunis and her children are the survivors of a vicious, dead-of-night attack on her family. Her husband — her childrens’ father — is not. He was killed in their home outside Pretoria, South Africa, in what has come to be called a “farm attack — the targeted terrorizing of farmers…

Mariandra, her husband, and their three little girls were asleep when the two armed attackers came. She was eight months pregnant with a son Johann Heunis would never meet — Mariandra gave birth just five days after she buried him.

Anti-Caucasian redistributionist rhetoric by the ruling ANC and other still more radical parties like EFF and BLF has driven a rise in the brutal farm attacks, which often entail torture.

Meanwhile, South Africa’s president and his party have vowed to move forward with a plan to amend the constitution to allow for the seizure of farmland owned by white Africans to give the land to black Africans.

That is, seizure without compensation of land that has often been in the family for many generations.

Whites settled the region starting in 1652. Now South Africa is largely populated by the descendants of blacks who came from other parts of the continent afterward, drawn by the wealth Afrikaners created.

This is a war of the future, fought not with tanks or missiles but with demographics. It is a true total war; that is, it is a war of extermination. It is a war in which only one side fights, so that side will win.

Demographic projections indicate that what happened to Zimbabwe and is now happening to South Africa will not be limited to the African continent.

Let Mariandra Heunis be the face of what liberal do-gooders did to South Africa and will do to the rest of the world if they are not stopped:
