Beaches Soaked in Sewage in Rainbow Utopia

Social engineers may have to choose between the good of the planet and other aspects of their agenda. South Africa seemed to be their ultimate triumph: a First World country turned over to communists of color to be looted and destroyed in the name of equity and social justice. However, this has turned out poorly not only for the people who produce South Africa’s food, but also for Gaia.

Earlier we learned that South African rivers have become open sewers. Now we read this:

The severe sewage discharge followed massive amounts of rubbish piling up on Durban’s streets after municipal workers went on an unprotected strike, protesting against salary hikes awarded to Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK) veterans.

Envy. As Bill Whittle has eloquently explained, it’s what leftist economics boils down to.

MK was the armed wing of the ruling African National Congress, cofounded by liberal demigod Nelson Mandela himself.

It emerged last month on the eve of this week’s election that some MK vets employed by the city had received pay increases from R9 000 to R20 000. Many were employed in eThekwini’s already dysfunctional Durban Solid Waste (DSW) department. The strike, including blockades and dumping of refuse in the city centre, took place amid Africa’s biggest international tourism conference, the Tourism Indaba, taking place in Durban. Bathing, surfing and fishing have been banned in Durban due to raw sewage flowing into the water. Hundreds of thousands of litres of raw sewage are flowing into the port every hour.

Tourists, like fish, are advised to steer clear of the rainbow utopia.

The eThekwini Municipality’s health unit on Thursday ordered the City’s Parks, Recreation and Culture department to ban all bathing on Durban’s beaches until further notice. …

Diving operations, essential to the port’s ship repair precinct, as well as all fishing in the Port of Durban have also been suspended.

As William Butler Yeats might say, things fall apart; the center cannot hold.

Political Discourse in the Rainbow Utopia

If you think politics in the USA has gotten ugly, wait until moonbattery collapses civilization, as in the rainbow utopia South Africa. From earlier this month:

In an election debate hosted by SABC, the country’s public broadcaster, Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party, Land Party and Black First Land First party’s supporters violently expressed their disagreement on the proposed land reforms throwing chairs and other objects at each other.

Video footage showed members of EFF instigating violence against other supporters.

EFF is to the ruling ANC what kooks like Bernie Sanders are to the Democrat Party. They are not actually in charge yet, but they have been driving the agenda. This is very bad news for Caucasians and for property rights. Black First Land First is like EFF on bath salts. As for the Land Party,

The LAND PARTY will secure victory through a new democratic LAND revolution and found a South African people’s democratic dictatorship through PEOPLE’S POWER.

Any fighting between these groups is likely to be over power and the pace at which policy is imposed, not the policy itself.

Behold our utopian future:

South Africa Could Go Dark for Weeks

When South Africa was turned over to the African National Congress, Afrikaners must have asked themselves how long the lights would stay on. They now have an answer: not much longer.

Eskom officials said they are in a race against time to avoid a complete grid collapse and a national electricity blackout.

The electricity utility, the largest of South Africa’s government-owned enterprises, is falling back on massive load-shedding.

These extreme measures are needed because 17,000MW of Eskom’s 47,000MW installed capacity is not available for service due to unplanned breakdowns.

Also, there is a diesel shortage. If those in charge can’t keep military horses from starving, how are they going to keep power plants fed?

Energy advisor Ted Blom said a total blackout in South Africa is “totally possible”.

This will provide widespread opportunities for further wealth redistribution on a more informal basis than what the government has been doing.

A national blackout would result from demand exceeding supply, leading to cascading trip mechanisms. This would require restarting the power plants without electricity, which is called a “black start.” Expect the government to step in soon and forbid the use of such racist terms.

A black start would take 2 to 3 weeks. When the lights come back on, the scene they illuminate could be so hideous that people will want them back off again.

Where They Don’t Need to Fake Hate Crimes

According to the liberal narrative, racist white thugs prey upon innocent black victims. This is so discordant with reality that progressives rely on constant fake hate crimes to make the phenomenon seem real. In stark contrast, there is nothing unreal about violence inflicted on whites where they are the minority — certainly not in South Africa. These stories from the Rainbow Utopia are all dated yesterday:

Farm attack, woman attacked by 4 masked attackers with machetes, Darling
A farm attack took place in Darling in the Western Cape on 19 february 2019. Four masked suspects with panga’s (machetes) gained access by climbing on to the 1st floor balcony of the home. A female victim was attacked and hit with back of machete handle in her face.

Farm attack, woman (76) overpowered on Rosehill farm, Barkly East
A farm attack took place on 16 February 2019, at Barkly East in the Eastern Cape. An elderly lady (76) was attacked by by one suspect. The attack occurred on Rosehill Farm. The woman was not seriously injured during the attack but was obviously extremely traumatised.

Farm attack, two woman overpowered, assaulted, stabbed, White River
A farm attack took place in White River, Mpumalanga on 18 february 2019… Two female victims were attacked and one was stabbed with screwdriver.

Farm attack: Couple brutally assaulted with machetes, crowbars
A farm attack took place on 14 February 2019 in Sondagsrivier Vallei in the Eastern Cape Province. … A couple were attacked on their farm at around 23:00 that evening and severely assaulted with machetes, crowbars and stabbed.

The odds of any of these farm attacks not involving black assailants and white victims are about the same as the odds of the US media acknowledging what is going on over there.

Collapse of Civilization in Zimbabwe

The scariest thing about the nightmare unfolding in South Africa is that we already know how the story ends — and it is not a happy ending. This recently First World country is following a trail blazed by its role model, Zimbabwe. There, the Internet has been shut down and soldiers are going door to door marauding.

Progressives don’t mind oppression when the victims are white. They don’t even seem to mind that after whites are driven out or murdered, resulting in societal collapse, the victims of the ensuing savagery are black. The important thing is that the former Breadbasket of Africa (when Zimbabwe was known as Rhodesia) is now free of white privilege.

None of this stops “mainstream” liberal outlets like Time from explicitly urging America to follow in the footsteps of South Africa, just as South Africa follows in the footsteps of Rhodesia. The demographic transformation that is only just beginning will make this feasible.

ANC Body Count

Decades of power have changed the African National Congress from the days when it was placing tires filled with gasoline around people’s necks and setting them on fire under the guidance of the sainted Nelson Mandela and wife Winnie. Now when it kills, it is mostly by incompetence rather than malice. South Africa’s Democratic Alliance has released an ANC body count:

• The Life Esidimeni Tragedy – 144 people died at the psychiatric facility due to “neglect”

• Marikana – 34 mine workers were shot by police while protesting. President Cyril Ramaphosa was an executive for Lonmin at the time.

• Pit toilet deaths – At least three children have drowned in pit latrines since the ANC were re-elected in 2014.

Too bad 181 is not the total number of deaths resulting from the ANC being handed power in 1994. Counting the farm murders it has enabled would raise the ANC body count into the thousands.

As the DA notes in a statement,

“South Africans have been subjected to one of the worst governance periods under the ANC which has plunged the country into unacceptable levels of poverty and a crippling jobs crisis. Communities have become war-zones, provision of basic services has come to a grinding halt, and millions of our children have been let down by a failing education system.”

On the positive side, even if the ANC has reduced a wealthy First World country to the ongoing train wreck we see today, it has provided its liberal supporters around the world with a warm glow of self-satisfied righteousness.

Church Services in the Rainbow Utopia

Church services can be a little dry in countries that have not been blessed with multicultural enrichment, but they don’t have that problem in South Africa. At the International Pentecostal Holiness Church in Limpopo yesterday, 23 church members were arrested for offenses that included public violence and assault to cause grievous bodily harm. Two were hospitalized with serious injuries.

“It is alleged that two rival groups of the church had an altercation during a church service where other members went on the rampage and started assaulting several people and damaged vehicles which were parked within the church premises,” police said in a statement.

Police confiscated weapons ranging from “four big sticks” to “20 petrol bombs.” Thrill-seeking congregants are encouraged to come back next weekend to see if anyone gets necklaced on the altar at the conclusion of the homily.

At least there were no reports of drinking engine cleaning fluid during services.

White Doctors Need Not Apply in Rainbow Utopia

With the downfall of Apartheid, racism has been abolished in South Africa — except when it comes to incidentals like personal safety, owning property, and getting a job. If you want to work as a doctor, you had better be black, because the rainbow utopia does not want white doctors:

The health department in the KwaZulu-Natal province expanded its registrar programme for 2019 from 314 to 414, but aimed to fill the new posts with only black candidates. …

Leaked documents show the department wanted to train a total of 366 black doctors and had already recruited 32 Indian, 12 white and four mixed race registrars, but need a further 100 black medics to meet employment equity targets.

As usual, leftist authorities are willing to sacrifice not only basic fairness but also the well-being of the public to advance Afro-favoritism. A competent white doctor is inarguably better for the patient than an incompetent black doctor. Yet progressive social engineers prefer the latter. If no competent black doctors can be found, they will go with those who are incompetent, while competent whites are forced into unemployment.

Aspiring doctors of the Caucasian persuasion will of course seek to leave South Africa for a country that permits them to work. This will not improve the disastrous state of healthcare in South Africa.

Astonishingly, Department of Health spokesmoonbat Ncumisa Mafunda characterizes the “government imperative” of discriminating against whites at the cost of providing quality healthcare as “the morally and socially right thing to do.”

To make sense of this malign policy being called moral, consider that leftists use the word to mean “compliant with or tending to advance our ideology.” That is how Nancy Pelosi can denounce an urgently needed wall to protect the USA from foreign invasion as “immoral.”

The Perils of a South African Vacation

If you are planning a vacation, may I suggest some place other than the rainbow utopia of post-Apartheid South Africa?

Guests at a holiday resort in northern KwaZulu-Natal had to be evacuated after an armed mob stormed the grounds and vandalised facilities [on December 21].

It is understood that the people, numbering in the hundreds and many of whom were armed with pangas, had pulled down a perimeter fence before swarming the Natal Spa resort near Vryheid.

That’s why walls are needed, not fences.

Pangas are machetes. The mob also wielded knobkerries, which are heavy wooden clubs with a knob on one end.

Police sources said the mob had threatened staff members, warning them to vacate their posts or face violence.

Guests were transported from the resort under guard while police negotiated with the mob.

When the police negotiate with a mob, the mob has already won.

As for the reason for the attack, manager Henk Barnard reported “rumors that the crowd was unhappy about the dismissal of certain staff [and] others were unhappy that they are not employed.”

In some cultures, those who seek employment fill out applications or send in résumés. But Africa has its own customs.

Encouragingly, 28 members of the mob were actually arrested.

If you really want to see African wildlife, stick to the safari tours. Staying at a holiday resort could be dangerous.

Combating Racism by Slaughtering Sheep

Great news. The scourge of racism has been cured in the best way possible: through the exuberant application of indigenous culture.

Pandemonium broke out on Clifton’s Fourth Beach on Friday when demonstrators arrived with a sheep which they slaughtered to exorcise the “demon of racism”.

Clifton is an upscale suburb of Cape Town, South Africa. It offers the most expensive real estate in the country, and no doubt is chock-full of well-to-do liberals who helped bring down Apartheid.

Uh oh. We have an intersectionality problem. Sheep are oppressed too:

Animal rights activists protested as the sheep arrived, one of them holding a sign saying: “End racism but don’t kill the sheep.”

Chumani Maxwele, formerly of Rhodes Must Fall, directed the ritual.

“We are going to untie the sheep and walk it to the ocean to waken Nxele’s spirit. Nxele’s spirit is along this ocean. Down with white racists, down,” he shouted.

The reference is to a savage who instigated an attack on a British garrison 200 years ago.

Maxwele then cut the sheep’s throat as other protesters burnt incense. He declared: “Today, the dignity of the black people has been restored. This is an offering to our ancestors.”

There followed a melee, as the black supremacists and animal rights advocates hurled obscenities and footwear at each other.

Yet again, we see that leftism can only be used to destroy. You may be able to wreck the established order with a temporary alliance of leftist groups, but you cannot establish a functional new one, because they will soon be at each other’s throats.

Profiles in Moonbattery: Amy Biehl

An ideologically inflicted obliviousness to the danger of Islam made possible the recent horrific deaths of Louisa Vesterager Jespersen and Maren Ueland, two Scandinavian girls who went camping in Morocco. This has called to mind other young women who died as martyrs to moonbattery. A classic example is Amy Biehl.

Wikipedia summarizes her historical significance:

Amy Elizabeth Biehl (April 26, 1967 – August 25, 1993) was a white American graduate of Stanford University and an Anti-Apartheid activist in South Africa who was murdered by black Cape Town residents while a black mob shouted anti-white slurs. The four men convicted of her murder were released by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

Lots of people have been murdered for being white in South Africa. Since the end of Apartheid, killing white farmers with maximum brutality has become the national pastime. What made Biehl’s tragic demise so ironic is her devotion to sacrificing other whites to the mob that killed her.

The New York Times reported the next day:

Miss Biehl had been doing research at the mainly black University of the Western Cape for 10 months. An African National Congress official, Dullah Omar, called her “absolutely dedicated and committed to the cause of the oppressed and the democratization process in the country.”

That is, she was committed to transferring power to blacks in the name of political correctness. Helen Keller could have seen what would follow.

The police said she was driving a car with three passengers when youths lining both sides of the main street stoned the vehicle.

Luckily for the passengers, apparently all of them were black.

[T]he youths stopped the vehicle, grabbed Miss Biehl, pulled her out and hit her in the face with half a brick.

Then they stabbed and beat her.

Miss Biehl was closely involved with developing voter education programs [in South Africa] prior to the country’s first multiracial election scheduled for April 27.

Biehl herself received an education that she would not live to apply. She died on the spot. At least she received a posthumous pat on the head from Nelson Mandela himself.

The attackers explicitly stated that they killed her for being white. They were believed to be supporters or members of the Pan Africanist Congress. Biehl helped turn South Africa over to a similar mob, with results that continue to unfold.

South Africa Lurches Toward Civil War

Looks like South Africans will not have to wait for Julius Malema to take power for the situation there to degenerate into either civil war or a one-side race war of annihilation:

On stage in a stadium in Soweto, the township at the heart of the uprising against apartheid, South Africa’s president, in a green and gold leather jacket, was dancing a Zulu war jig. …

In front of more than 20,000 people — party loyalists and others bussed in with the promise of free food and ‘Zuma T-shirts’ — he warned the white population he was coming for their land. …

He also attacked his critics among the black population, branding them ‘back stabbers and cowards’. Anyone opposing him was a ‘racist’.

The term racist has the same definition in South Africa as in the USA: “someone who opposes leftist authoritarianism.”

Zuma had earlier informed the South African parliament that he planned to introduce a new law allowing land seizures to go ahead without compensation, saying all blacks should unite to ‘take back the land’.

European civilization has thrived in South Africa for as long as it has in North America. In North America, moonbats tell us that our ancestors stole the land from Stone Age savages. Same in South Africa.

Mzwandile Masina, a prominent member of the ruling African National Congress (ANC), made his own incendiary contribution, warning that ‘we will crush’ anyone who stands ‘in the way of nation building’.

Whites, who comprise four million out of a total South African population of 50 million, should expect that things will be ‘very, very rough’ for them, Masina warned. He told the crowd that while the white population is small in number, ‘we are many’.

Actually, the odds would favor whites, who are only outnumbered 12½ to 1, if not for political correctness. But thanks to leftism, many if not most whites have been convinced that they do not deserve to exist, and that their race and their culture should be eradicated.

It remains to be seen how many white South Africans will fight back, even to save their lives. No other country will defend them. On the contrary, Western politicians will piously side with the communist savages as they loot, murder, enslave, and plunge a nation into poverty and misery. That’s how sick political correctness has made us.

The current state of affairs in this nation created by cultural Marxism:

The economy is undoubtedly in peril after government bonds were downgraded to junk status. Once a net exporter of food — as neighbouring Zimbabwe was before Robert Mugabe seized land from whites in a programme of ‘racial transformation’ — the country is now forced to rely on imports to feed the population.

Unemployment is 90 per cent in some townships, and riots — described as ‘service delivery protests’ by the ANC — are so widespread and frequent they barely get reported.

Crime is rampant — with more than 50 murders a day, many sadistic and barbaric — while South Africa is shamed by an appalling record on rape, with a woman sexually assaulted every 23 seconds.

As anyone could have predicted back in the 1990s, the wheels are coming off. In addition, Zuma’s conspicuous corruption hangs over him like a Sword of Damocles. To hold onto power, he has been plunging ever further into radicalism.

Bleats former President F.W. de Klerk, who shared a Nobel Peace Prize for his role in setting all this in motion,

‘We hope that the world will condemn growing institutionalised racism against (white) minorities with the same vigour with which it condemned apartheid.’

Not likely.

Festive New South African Custom: Burning Down Schools

As its utopian future continues to unfold, South Africa will soon be free of the white man’s racist knowledge:

At least four schools have been incinerated within a month which is a cause for concern.

After all the celebrations over the past quarter century, why choose now to start being concerned about the course South Africa is on?

Police in Calcutta received a report around midnight that Kwanang Primary School in Madras was on fire and in turn they summoned the Bushbuckridge Fire Fighters. Whilst the team was still busy at that scene, they received another report that Rindzani High School was engulfed by flames.

A preliminary investigation at the scene revealed that a group of about 15 people were spotted entering the school and they left the staff room burning.

What do they need schools for? After the last white farmers have been murdered or driven out of the country, South Africans can subsist on foreign aid with no need for tedious classrooms.

South Africa Passes Students Who Score as Low as 20% in Math

Likely due to Common Core lunacy, American math scores have been plummeting. Fortunately, educrats in Third-Worldized South Africa have found a solution:

A circular sent out by the Department of Basic Education (DBE) states that learners in Grade 7, 8 or 9 who did not achieve 40% in maths, should have their maths marks “condoned” (accepted) if they achieve 20% or above.

This means these learners will be promoted to the next grade, even though they would have normally failed maths and had to repeat their current grade. Grade 9 learners who pass this way will be not be allowed to take maths in grade 10; they must instead do maths literacy.

“We are setting these children up for failure,” a primary school teacher, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told GroundUp. “Now we are sending children to the next grade, who didn’t fully grasp the grade they were coming from.”

Critics miss the point. Failure is a relative concept. The important thing is to enhance students’ self-esteem by moving them along to the next grade. This can be accomplished by lowering standards as necessary, until we have no standards at all. At that point, equality will have been achieved.

In the meantime, remember that since reason itself is a “white male Euro-Christian construction,” so is math, so the world will be less racist without it.

Higher Learning Is Becoming Impossible in South Africa

Post-Apartheid, there are now more opportunities for black South Africans, who can pursue them through higher education. They are learning what they need to know to get ahead in South Africa — that is, how to bring down society. “Protests” are making the old-fashioned kind of learning nearly impossible:

At Wits University [University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg], where students voted overwhelmingly in a poll to return to class, militant protesters plotted ways to continue the disruptions, including occupying certain campus buildings from midnight [Sunday] night, while a handful suggested openly taking up arms. …

At a meeting in the Solomon Mahlangu Hall at Wits [Sunday], it was suggested that protesting students “fight fire with fire” and carry firearms.

“We can get AK47s. Those who have connections can assist. Even if it’s just knives. We have to fight back when the system responds with violence,” one student said.

“Violence” against protesters usually consists of not complying instantly with even their most extravagant demands.

Students at the meeting have decided to form small, highly mobile groups to target “specific academic nerve centres” to disrupt and ensure a complete shutdown of the university. They said it was easy for the police and security guards to tackle large groups but that small groups would create difficulties for the security personnel.

What about students who do not aspire to be Marxist revolutionaries? They are out of luck:

In the poll at Wits on Thursday, 77% of the 21 000 students who responded, and 91% of the university’s academics, said they wanted to return to classes.

On Friday 3,000 students and staff at University of Cape Town held a silent protest demanding that the institution re-open tomorrow. A tiny group opposed them.

Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan University students said yesterday that their riots would continue “no matter what”.

The majority of students would rather learn something more productive than how to destroy everything and seize power over the ruins. But when The People rule, what most people want doesn’t matter.

EFF commander-in-chief Julius Malema told The Times yesterday that his party fully supported the protests…

When Malema’s fanatically anti–economic freedom Economic Freedom Fighters party takes power, South Africa will have gone full Zimbabwe. It openly calls for seizing the property of whites without compensation.

As the events following the takeover of the country by communist terrorist Nelson Mandela in 1994 continue to unfold, the day when white South Africans must leave what’s left of their country in anything that will float is pretty much at hand.

At least R600-million of damage has been caused to campus property across the country since the protests started a year ago.

That’s peanuts. The monetary cost of taking a First World country and reducing it to a starving Third World basket case in the name of moonbat politics is beyond computation.
