Communist Storm Clouds Gather in South Africa

Moonbat demigod Nelson Mandela’s collectivist legacy continues to unfold in what was once a prosperous and relatively civilized country:

The Economic Freedom Fighters have stuck to their guns for the nationalisation of mines and expropriation of land without compensation.

Party leader Julius Malema on Saturday unveiled the organisation’s elections manifesto at Mehlareng Stadium in Tembisa, east of Johannesburg.

“We want to do away with colonial patterns of ownership in South Africa,” he said.

That means if a white person owns it, the government is going to take it, just like in Zimbabwe, which has been reduced to basket case status by similar policies.

Malema’s manifesto consists mainly of one word: nationalization. Very little will be left in private hands if he has his way. The name of his party is appropriate: it exists to fight economic freedom.

Malema revved up supporters by proclaiming that after 20 years of democracy, blacks are still poor. The implication is that it is time to give up on democracy, and go whole hog on the communism.

When communism doesn’t work either, there will be no going back. After the wealth that was produced when property rights were honored has been devoured by the government, there will be nothing left but poverty and tyranny, as in Zimbabwe.

The insanity of Malema’s agenda guarantees economic ruin. For example,

Malema said his party believed all jobs in the country should be permanent.

The EFF would implement legislation that would ensure this.

What effect will it have on employment if once hired, a worker can never be let go? No one likely to vote for the EFF would think it through far enough to wonder.

Malema also plans to impose set wages for various occupations, to inflict nationalized health insurance that will incorporate “traditional healers” (i.e., witch doctors), and to pass out all sorts of goodies like social grants, increased pensions, increased child support grants, free education, scholarships to study abroad, et cetera, ad nauseam. Peggy the Moocher would love it.

Any of these goodies that actually materialize will be financed by Western aid, since there is no chance South Africa will generate significant wealth without property rights.

Economic Freedom Fighters
Actually, it is over for everyone but tyrants.

    Mass Murder on the horizon as Africa collapses into a Black hole.

  2. I wonder if our State Department will be as eager to grant asylum to white South Africans fleeing to America as they are granting asylum to Blacks, Moslems, and Hispanics.

    Contractor friend toured Russian Federation a few years ago.

    Tour guide pointed to large warehouse in the middle of construction, to be completed following 18 months of work.

    Contractor observed that he routinely completes those projects in 9 months at the most.

    Tour guide replies, “Ah yes, but then how many people would be without a job?”

    SSDD, if you get my drift. Same socialist/communist mindset (or what passes for a mind…).

    Professor — Our pastor and some of our church friends are from South Africa and can attest to the above. The spiral down the drain of a country that would otherwise have much to offer just gets tighter and faster.

    I think we all know the answer to your question, considering the compassionate, all-embracing worldview of our progressive overlord-wannabes.

    Blacks…you expected different?

  6. NorcalJim says:

    Without God, men just revert to being beasts .. seems the blacks are so benighted they cannot see beyond the end of their nose, that’s why they never made anything of what they had, now they want to grab what they can, without seeing that reverting tribal ways means slaughter ..

    They are well on their way to becoming Zimbabwe. I
    bought a few 100 trillion dollar notes on Amazon a
    few years ago. Now we get to see which will begin
    to suffer hyper-inflation first; South Africa or
    the United States.

    P.J. O’Rourke once said of the Nicaraguan currency
    during the Noreaga years that one had to take economics
    3 or 4 time at the University of Moscow to make currency
    worth this little.

  8. “asylum, I fear being harassed if I return to my home country” is supposed to be a “get out of jail free” card for anyone who can cross our Southern border. White people might have to claim to be gay to get a free pass.

    The Economic Freedom Fighters Party is a national, socialist workers party. How did that work out the last time it was tried? Oh, yeah, 20 million dead.

    South Africa is about to get EFFed.

    Every sane person predicted this was gong to happen prior to the dissolution of Apartheid.

    Let them return to the savage past just get ourselves out of this wretched UN

    A deja vu moment for me, as I lived through this same scenario in the socialist UK for years. Jobs were supposed to be for life, secure tenancy of your local authority or privately rented house/apartment, along with fixed rents,which resulted in the collapse of the private renting sector.

    NHS socialised medical, benefits/social security for the unemployed or never worked in their lives. All of which resulted in the costs of business escalating out of control,total failure of our industrial base, which moved anywhere it was cheaper.

    Then there was the nationalisation of anything the Socialist labour party thought was best in Socialist government hands, some went on to be re privatised under Thatcher, others disappeared down the left wing plug hole.

    I just can’t see SA being rescued by a South African style Thatcher or the average SA voter voting for such a person.

    Let the wars between the countries start.. Like the old days before civilization showed up.. Let them have their planet of the apes.. Tear down the few hundred years of progress and go back to eating off the ground.. Burn baby Burn..

    I could not care less. F EM ALL. As long as my tax dollars aren’t being wasted there and they are not a threat to the USA, let them kill one another with us supplying whatever they need to get the job done.

    The only good communists isa dead communists

  16. Leonard Jones says:

    I forgot to mention that Nelson Mandella was a member of
    the communist African National Congress. He was found
    guilty of terrorist bombing.

    This is the logical conclusion of his political ideology. Zimbabwe, the former breadbasket of Africa, is now a basket case. These communist revolutionaries
    killed all the white farm owners and seized their
    land. Trouble is that like all communists, they were
    both too lazy and too stupid to engage in agriculture.
    (Shades of the Ukraine in the Stalin era)

    South Africa is known for it’s industry. They will
    make the same mistakes the Soviets, the Chinese, the
    Cambodians, Hitler, and every other collectivist
    regime did in the 20th. century did: Leave a
    legacy of death and destruction in their wake!

  17. big-pete says:

    With Mandela gone the flood gates of black hegemony will finally be released in South Africa. I’d wish them well but they wouldn’t know what to do with it.

    It should say THE HONEYMOON IS OVER BLACK MORONS once they run the whites out and figure out who is left holding the bag!! LOLOLOLOLOL Just as DUMB as ever no matter what country they are in.

    Amen Gunny G

    So you two morons are okay with the genocide of white South Africans?

  20. DJ says:



    Since 1994 with the take-over of the Christian ruled South Africa by the communist-terrorist-atheist-murderous African National Congress (please do not be deceived by the “national” in African National Congress, there is nothing national about this organization) the country became a cesspool of murder, torture, rape and corruption, every evil written in the handbook of communism-bolshevism.

    More than 80,000 White people have been tortured and murdered since 1994 thousands upon thousands of blacks suffered the same treatment. It is like we who have studied communism that in every communist country it is only the elite who benefit the raping of the riches of the country they destroyed. South Africa has lost her soul and reaping more than the whirlwind of this horrible change forced on her population.

    Because all law and order, civility and descent conduct towards a neighbor disappeared into this cesspool of darkness, many children are left without parents, some were sexually assaulted and too many unspeakable things happened to them. Some were rescued and placed in orphanages all over the country. More than a million White people are living in squatter camps with no hope of even getting help from the government in the way of a pension or if you lucky finding a job, your transgression is the color of your skin. South Africa has the most unequal society in the world, with Black Empowerment Employment (BEE) or as it is called in the United States Affirmative Action with a population of 50 million Blacks and 3 million Whites, it stands to reason no White ever stands a chance in a society like this.

    Wow, just look at the wonderful “gift” Saint Mandela left for his country.
