Shutting Down Mis-/Disinformation in South Africa

All we have to do to reach liberal utopia is follow behind South Africa. Here’s how it deals with misinformation/disinformation:

In a notice published in the Government Gazette on 22 March, the FPB [Film and Publication Board] has attempted to prescribe new regulations governing misinformation and disinformation in South Africa.

According to the FPB, an untrue communication is disinformation if you know it isn’t true and misinformation if you think it is true.

Who determines what you think? The government. Who determines whether something is true? The government.

Anyone found guilty of distributing such prohibited content faces a fine of up to R150,000 and zero to two years imprisonment.

R150,000 = US $8,066.

Internet Service Providers who learn that their services were used to disseminate disinformation or misinformation face fines of up to R750,000 and five years in prison if they don’t notify the FPB within 30 days.

R750,000 = US $40,330.

ISPs can’t pretend they don’t know about thoughtcrime conveyed on their platforms, because there is no shortage of eagle-eyed liberals eager to rat them out, as when lost almost all of its advertising revenue because it was evidently denounced to Google AdSense, Taboola, etc. as a platform for dissident opinion.

The FPB then also attempts to extend its powers regarding registration and other obligations of Internet service providers over platforms like YouTube, Facebook, and Google.

Talk about chilling free speech — no wait, don’t talk about it. You might say something the government disagrees with and get fined and/or imprisoned. The rest of the West is not far behind South Africa — which in turn is not far behind Zimbabwe.

Even in the Rainbow Nation, there is still vestigial resistance:

Media Monitoring Africa, the South African National Editors Forum, the Campaign for Free Expression, the Press Council of South Africa, and the SOS Support Public Broadcasting Coalition have served the FPB with an ultimatum to withdraw the notice or face legal action.

However, the FPB is not backing down. What are lovers of freedom going to do, elect non-leftists? Demographics make that inconceivable.

Watershedding in Rainbow Utopia

Next for South Africa after no more electricity is no more water:

While hot weather has shrunk reservoirs, crumbling infrastructure after decades of neglect is also largely to blame. The public’s frustration is a danger sign for the ruling African National Congress, whose comfortable hold on power since the end of apartheid in the 1990s faces its most serious challenge in an election this year.

Who would have thought that investing power in the party of Marxist terrorist Nelson Mandela would lead to anything but bliss?

A country already famous for its hourslong electricity shortages is now adopting a term called “watershedding” — the practice of going without water, from the term loadshedding, or the practice of going without power.

Like everything else in the Rainbow Utopia, the water situation will likely go from bad to worse.

Over the [previous] weekend, water management authorities with Gauteng province, which includes Johannesburg and the capital, Pretoria, told officials from both cities that the failure to reduce water consumption could result in a total collapse of the water system. That means reservoirs would drop below 10% capacity and would need to be shut down for replenishment.

That could mean weeks without water from taps…

But the important thing is that they don’t have to worry about white privilege as the opportunists who poured in from other parts of Africa to partake of the bounty Afrikaners created die of dehydration in the dark.

Inheritors of South Africa: Women Want to Be Raped

Rape is endemic in the Rainbow Utopia, as previously flourishing South African disintegrates into a pre-civilization state of barbarism due to the triumph of moonbattery. How do women feel about it? Let’s see if potential rapists know. Britain’s Ross Kemp asks the previously oppressed:

In the case of female moonbats, these sociopaths may actually have a point. If they are not willing at some sick level to become victims of rape, why do they support the societal disintegration that makes sexual violence inevitable? Maybe this explains feminist support for Hamas rapists.

Checking In on the Rainbow Utopia

Moonbats managed to force South Africa to succumb to the sort of government they want. The story is over, with a happy rainbow ending, so there is no need for the media to dwell on the aftermath. But just in case you are curious:

According to the most recent crime statistics released by the Minister of Police, Bheki Cele, a staggering 881 women and 293 children were killed during the period of July and September this year. …

A staggering 14,401 female victims were victims of assault and 1,514 were victims of attempted murder during the three-month period.

Seventy-five people are killed daily in South Africa. Fortunately, the left-wing GOOD Party has a solution. Barks Brett Herron, GOOD Party secretary-general and MP:

“GOOD maintains that without addressing the toxic blend of social and economic injustice; crime cannot be reduced through more boots on the ground alone.”

No matter how intolerable the crises caused by moonbattery, moonbats’ solution will always be more moonbattery. That’s why a country is doomed once they consolidate control.

South African Federation of Trade Unions national spokesperson Trevor Shaku blames the criminal violence on “backwardness created by patriarchy” and “economic deprivation created by capitalism.”

No moonbat is going to say, “Okay, that’s enough moonbattery; let’s turn back.” The condition is terminal.

More Malfeasance From the Rainbow Utopia

The reason the lights will soon go out in South Africa is that state-owned Eskom is run by the same people who run the government. These people even run the churches:

The Sunday Times reports that Eskom board chair Mpho Makwana’s church, the International Pentecostal Holiness Church (IPHC), owes Eskom over R2 million in unpaid electricity bills that were due on Thursday, 17 August 2023.

Payment of this bill might help South Africa’s primary provider of electricity stave off financial collapse a little longer. But other uses have been found for the money:

According to church insiders, the IPHC continues to spend millions on luxury cars for its leader, comforter Leonard Modise.

These cars include a Mercedes-Benz Maybach GLS worth more than R5 million, and Modise was also seen arriving at a church event in a R7 million Bently Mulsanne in April.

Makwana declined to respond to the Sunday Times’ questioning and deferred all questions to the IPHC spokesperson, Albie Wessie.

Wessie stressed that Makwana “is not involved with Eskom customer account matters” — although insiders dispute this by saying that Makwana sits on the church’s finance team.

At least there is no corruption at Eskom:

Lights Will Soon Go Out in South Africa

Eventually progressivism progresses to the point where the lights go out. Consider the Rainbow Utopia:

Renowned economist Dawie Roodt said Eskom’s generation and distribution divisions are slowly dying, similar to South African Airways (SAA) and the South African Post Office (SAPO).

State-owned Eskom is the largest producer of electricity in Africa. It is going bankrupt.

The government is furiously shoveling other people’s money at Eskom. This won’t work.

Roodt said the government is trying to run things they cannot run, which causes them to collapse.

He previously explained that SAA had ten turnaround plans, and they all failed. “The company was ultimately run into the ground financially and operationally.”

“The same is currently happening to the South African Post Office. It is simply coming to an end. It is under provisional liquidation, and it is also just dying.”

The same could be said of the country as a whole. But all the racism there is against whites these days, so liberals count it as a win.

What Progressives Are Progressing Toward

Follow the trajectory of community organizer Barack Obama’s racial grievance politics through Black Lives Matter and into the future, taking into consideration the Biden strategy of displacing the American population with millions upon millions of illegal immigrants from the Third World, who are paid by the federal government to reproduce rapidly. Here’s where it’s headed:

Julius Malema is a South African Member of Parliament and leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters party. The EFF has vowed to unseat Malema’s former party, the ruling African National Congress. Even if it fails, its leftward pressure pushes the ANC toward ever more alarming radicalism.

Jack Posobiec says South Africa is 30 years ahead of the USA. That might be optimistic. Major cities have already been lost.

The next step after South Africa is Zimbabwe, with 577% inflation and widespread hunger, but at least no more racist white people.

Chillingly, drawing attention to the impending catastrophe can result in cancelation. Advertisers including Google’s AdSense and Taboola permanently blacklisted this site for mentioning it.

Antiwhite Discrimination Applied to Access to Water

Racial quotas have long discriminated against the whites who built South Africa regarding jobs. Now these will be applied to access to water:

Hot on the heels of newly-gazetted draft Race Quotas designed to ban entire groups of South Africans from employment in certain sectors and provinces, the ANC government has now also gazetted race quotas that will determine access to water on the basis of skin colour. …

The draft regulations, published by Minister of Water Senzo Mchunu on 19 May, introduce race quotas for the allocation of water use licences, which are vital to the survival of businesses in sectors such as agriculture, forestry and mining.

Under the ANC’s new water race quotas, applicants that use more than 250 000 m3 or withdraw more than a set minimum amount from streams need to meet strict racial quotas in order to get access to water – the single most critical resource required for life, livestock, agriculture and industry. Depending on the size of their water need, farmers or companies that have not “allocated” between 25% and 75% of its shares to what the regulations call “blacks,” will be denied access to water.

Once again, South Africa’s farmers take it in the teeth:

The consequences will be particularly devastating for the farmers who feed us all. 60% of South Africa’s water resources are currently used by agriculture to grow the food we all eat.

We know how this will turn out because similar race-based policies were applied to farms in Rhodesia, the erstwhile Breadbasket of Africa that is now the starving basket case Zimbabwe.

Under these water race quotas, livestock will be left to die from thirst because a farmer has the “wrong” skin colour. Fields will go fallow because those who till it are “undesirable.”

Blacks will starve too, but it is worth it to them to poke white farmers in the eye.

Speaking of farming in the Rainbow Utopia,

Former South African rugby star Lukas van Biljon is said to be ‘broken and devastated’ after his father died from gunshot wounds in a horrific farm attack in South Africa.

Tragic Andre van Biljon, 70, was blasted three times in the chest at midnight on Saturday and his son, ex-Springbok hooker Lukas, 47, was stabbed repeatedly with a knife.

Although authorities are effectively on the side of the criminals, two of the attackers were actually captured — because local farmers set up a roadblock and caught them.

Farmers in South Africa are under daily threat with 333 brutal attacks throughout the country last year which resulted in 55 horrific murders of men, women and children.

The attacks are usually highlighted by the cruelty inflicted with women often raped and both men and women first tortured with hot irons, power tools and boiling water.

Most victims are then mercilessly shot dead with stabbing and strangulation the second and third causes of death.

South Africa provides context for the plan openly advocated by leftists like Joe Biden to make whites a minority in the USA.

South Africa to Ban Free Speech

How does the fundamental right of free speech fare where liberalism has triumphed? To find out, let’s turn to the Rainbow Utopia and check on the progress of the Prevention and Combating of Hate Crime and Hate Speech Bill, which has been accepted by South Africa’s National Assembly:

The Bill has now been referred to the National Council of Provinces for deliberation and should it be accepted, it will be sent to Pres Cyril Ramaphosa for confirmation.

Ramaphosa was produced by the same African National Congress that gave us the communist terrorist, chum of despots, and prominent deity in the liberal firmament Nelson Mandela. I’m guessing he will sign it.

A specific concern is the vague definitions used in the Bill to define hate speech.

That’s not a bug; it’s a feature. As with the terms of service Big Tech tyrants like Google exploit to deplatform dissidents, vagueness will allow it to be weaponized on an arbitrary basis. The concept of “hate speech” and “hate crimes” was created for this purpose.

After several amendments to the Bill the term “hate crime” is now defined as an offense – excluding the offenses of crimen injuria or hate speech – committed by a person motivated by their prejudice or intolerance towards the victim, a family member of the victim, or the victim’s connection to or support of a group of persons who share one or more of the following real or perceived characteristics: age; albinism; culture; disability; ethnic or social roots; gender; HIV or Aids status; language; nationality; refugee status; occupation; political affiliation or conviction; race; religion; sexual orientation; skin colour.

The Bill also provides for the different channels through which these crimes can be committed and includes social media and online communication.

In short, say anything over the Internet that anyone chooses to find offensive and if authorities don’t like the cut of your jib, you will be in big trouble:

The Bill also provides for any person found guilty of a hate crime to be sentenced to a maximum of eight years imprisonment or a fine or both.

It would be a challenge to survive eight days in a South African hospital nowadays. Eight years in prison could be a life sentence.

We all know when Democrats will impose a similar law in the USA: the moment they have the political leverage.

South Africa Declares National State of Emergency

The future moonbattery makes inevitable is coming for us all. Because the Rainbow Utopia is a few years ahead of the rest, it is hitting South Africa first:

National Disaster Management Centre head Dr Elias Sithole has classified the impact of load-shedding as a national disaster.

Droned Sh**hole:

“[I] hereby call upon organs of state to further strengthen and support existing structures established to coordinate and manage the implementation of contingency arrangements in line with the National Energy Action Plan.”

President Cyril Ramaphosa contributes more words:

“Extraordinary circumstances call for extraordinary measures. The energy crisis is an existential threat to our economy and social fabric of our country,” said Ramaphosa.

“We must spare no effort, and we must allow no delay, in implementing these measures.”

Meanwhile, the lights flicker out as a formerly wealthy country circles the drain.

Every time you flip the switch and the lights still come on, be thankful that liberalism has not yet reached full flower.

Race Quota Could Nix Starlink in South Africa

Even after leftists like Joe Biden use immigration and welfare policy to achieve their stated objective of making whites a minority, the quotas, set-asides, and antiwhite discrimination collectively known as Affirmative Action will continue. The whites who created South Africa have been reduced to <9% of the population. Systemic racism against them is still so repressive that it appears to be preventing South African expat Elon Musk from providing Starlink Internet service:

South Africa’s estimated launch date for SpaceX’s high-speed, low-latency satellite Internet service Starlink has been changed from 2023 to “unknown”.

The delay in launching Starlink has been attributed to “regulatory hurdles.” At least some of the red tape is racial in nature:

South Africa’s telecoms regulator — the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) — previously told MyBroadband it would not issue any new licences to companies that are not 30% black owned, in line with new legislation for Internet service providers (ISPs).

Racial justice means it is better to go without than give business to white people.

Shopping in South Africa

Let’s check in on the rainbow utopia, where the globalist Left got what it wanted. Here’s how grocery shopping is done:

What happens when people start starving because looting delivery trucks and killing white farmers leave the grocery stores empty? Europe and North America send free food, of course.

It’s when liberals have turned the entire West into South Africa en route to Zimbabwe that we really have a problem. Maybe Putin will send us some free food.

Making Covid Tyranny Permanent in South Africa

South Africa is the template for progressives because its demographics at least theoretically guarantee permanent left-wing rule. Here’s how that applies to Covid:

A set of new draft laws introduced in South Africa could make permanent some of the liberty-crushing measures imposed on citizens during the COVID-19 pandemic, and enshrine into law a type of medical caste system formally excluding the unvaccinated from public life.

Among the intrusive decrees is a mask mandate for all public areas, including public transportation.

The laws are needed because even if Covid disappears entirely — or peters out as it already has into the mild Omicron variant, which originated in South Africa — it might come back some day.

Under the new draft laws, unvaccinated citizens could be banned from all indoor events with more than 1,000 people and all outdoor events with more than 2,000 people.

Only about half of South Africans are counted as fully vaccinated. The rest will be the equivalent of Hindu “Dalits.”

Bad enough to be white in South Africa. Imagine being white and unvaccinated. Life isn’t fun at the bottom of a caste system.

The draft rules are to apply not only to Covid but to “ALL notifiable health conditions.” If Omicron qualifies as a pretext to impose these restrictions, so might the next round of flu.

As Democrat Alliance leader John Steenhuisen observes:

“The ANC government is no longer fighting the spread of Covid. It is fighting to hold on to the powers it has become accustomed to.”

This will hold true to varying degrees in every country where leftists have exploited Covid to increase their power.

South Africa: At the End of the Rainbow Nation

If you want to know the future of the West, look to South Africa, where the demographics liberals aspire to produce in America and Europe are already in place and their political objectives have been achieved. The white oppressors who built the country out of wilderness are now effectively slaves to blacks who immigrated from other parts of Africa, in accordance with racial justice. Now it remains only for the oppressed to finish looting and burning what others worked to create.

Major upheaval was set off when the judicial system showed encouraging integrity by jailing infamously corrupt former President Jacob Zuma, age 79. At last word, at least 45 people have been killed in rioting, 10 or more of them in a stampede of looters at a shopping center in Soweto.

Nearly 800 people have been arrested. But you can’t arrest the entire population, and you would almost have to in order to restore civilization.

Fires have been set, highways blocked, ATMs disemboweled. Looting is rampant. In Durban, even a blood bank was looted. The lavishly rewarded mostly peaceful protests of Black Lives Matter may have served as an inspiration.

Zuma governed at the head of the same African National Congress that produced liberal demigod Nelson Mandela and current President Cyril Ramaphosa.

Via the Beeb:

Ramaphosa was accused of belatedly deploying troops – and only 2,500 of them compared with the 70,000 he deployed to enforce a nationwide lockdown to curb the spread of Covid-19 last year.

In South Africa as in the USA, Covid lockdowns are serious business, whereas left-wing riots are no biggie.

Police Minister Bheki Cele told journalists on Tuesday that, if the looting continued, there was a risk areas could run out of basic food supplies.

What do they need food for? This is utopia, the country where liberals completely got their way. Let them eat moonbattery.

If South Africa follows former Breadbasket of Africa Zimbabwe into basket case status, Western countries will provide just enough food to keep the half-starved population exploding. Reducing a prosperous country to hell on earth is a small price to pay for the eradication of white privilege.

Not all law-abiding citizens have been disarmed yet. Watch armed citizens fire on looters:
