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.

South Africa Is Burning

In 1994, due to overwhelming international pressure, political correctness triumphed over self-preservation in South Africa. Here is what the aftermath looks like:

From South Africa Today:

Fourteen days of violent riots, protests and destroying South Africa. The compilation of the video illustrates how disastrous events between May 25 and June 8 this year, a total of 14 days is the reality of what is happening in South Africa. Riots around the country, from Johannesburg to Witbank, and Durban, plus other isolated incidents show the destruction caused by hooligans running amok. Hundreds of unemployed, frustrated and intimidated mobs are burning down South Africa, destroying property, looting shops and more. If this is the damage and destruction done in 14 days what does the future hold?

Probably, the rise to power of the Economic Freedom Fighters, ultra-radicals who make communist terrorist Nelson Mandela’s currently ruling African National Congress look like the Rotary Club. Bad as the situation is now, there is little to stop it from getting worse.

Hopefully, other countries are learning from this, rather than following down the same road.

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.

Actually, it is over for everyone but tyrants.

South African President Jacob Zuma Boasts of Using Witchcraft Against Whites

Now that Mandelamania has died down, journalists can go back to ignoring what their ideology has wrought in South Africa, which has taken point in our march into a politically correct utopian future. But occasionally we do get news:

South Africa’s president Jacob Zuma has told how he used to practise witchcraft against white people.

Speaking in his native Zulu language at a pre-election rally in the country’s rural north, he told a crowd of his voodoo past. …

Zuma also told the crowd that the ANC would continue to run South Africa ‘for ever’.

At this point in South Africa’s moonbattery-induced death spiral, that’s wishful thinking. Julius Malema’s Economic Freedom Fighters party makes even Zuma’s African National Congress look moderate. Malema is gaining ground against the former terrorist Zuma by openly calling for racial bloodshed and the confiscation of white property.

Meanwhile, Zuma has been sinking into a mire of the corruption scandals that characterize crumbling Third World hellholes like South Africa is becoming.

President Zuma is also widely perceived has having personally profited from his presidency by building a lavish £10 million homestead with what is alleged to be taxpayers’ money.

Whatever happens next, you can be sure South Africans of all colors will be worse off for it. US taxpayers, get your wallets ready. If Zimbabwe is any guide, famine will be severe.

Trajectory of South Africa’s Descent Steepens

New York City and Virginia aren’t the only places to be pushed off the deep end by demographically supported left-wing ideology. It happened to South Africa when the country committed suicide at the insistence of the sanctimonious “international community” by turning control over to a mob of savages. The formerly civilized nation’s descent is gaining velocity:

South Africa’s beleaguered white minority—already subjected to an unprecedented campaign of murder, robbery and violence—are facing a renewed assault in the build-up to the 2014 national elections with the growing support for a new violently anti-white party called the “Economic Freedom Fighters” (EFF).

The EFF was founded by the former head of the African National Congress’s Youth League, Julius Malema, after he was expelled from that party.

The Left will always push the envelope. Not long ago, it would have been difficult to imagine being so radical as to get kicked out of Nelson Mandela’s African National Congress (ANC), a socialist organization known for the savage practice of necklacing.

The EFF’s policy position of the party is based on the not unjustifiable claim that twenty years after the handing over of power to the black majority in 1994, black people are still not economically “liberated”.

By this they mean that blacks are still overwhelmingly poor, and even though white wealth levels have dropped dramatically, that group still appears to be in possession of most of the remaining financial assets of the country.

Equality will not be achieved until everyone is forced down to the lowest level.

South Africa is already a hell for the whites who once raised it up out of the Stone Age. Much of the white population has escaped due to endemic racial violence and systematic racial discrimination. But so long as there are any left at all, whites will be blamed for Africans continuing to live like Africans. EFF policy

demands the nationalization of land, mines, banks and other assets without compensation and, in particular, on a racial basis.

At a recent launch of its party group in Marikana (in the old western Transvaal, now called the North West Province), EFF supporters carried banners reading “Honeymoon is over for whites” and “To be a revolutionary you have to be inspired by hatred and bloodshed”.

Already South Africa has a president who publicly sings about killing white people. Now the leadership will escalate from encouraging and facilitating freelance thugs to becoming a Third World Third Reich.

Whites have lived in South Africa for nearly 400 years. They won’t be there for much longer, because civilization is shrinking as it dies of political correctness.

According to a recent survey, 42% of young blacks approve of “land reform” as the EFF defines it — i.e., confiscating most if not all property owned by whites. No doubt the percentage of white college professors in the USA and Europe approving of the EFF would be even higher.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. A video is worth a thousand pictures. The video below demonstrates the practice of necklacing, made famous by liberals’ beloved ANC. WARNING — GRAPHIC:

That is the world’s future if civilization continues to wither and withdraw under the effects of the self-hatred inflicted by liberalism.

Google Celebrates Communist Revolutionary Yuri Kochiyama, Who Praised Osama bin Laden After 9/11

By now we hardly even notice Google’s vaguely irritating Doodles, which as often as not advance the corrosion of far left ideology. It almost seems normal that the number one search engine exploits its prominence to promote radical revolutionaries who defined themselves by their hostility to everything America stands for.

Today’s Google main page:

Yuri Kochiyama

The barking moonbat Google wants to promote today is Yuri Kochiyama (5/19/1921–6/1/2014), depicted in her youth so as to make her seem more appealing. Some background from Wikipedia:

Yuri Kochiyama was a Japanese American human rights activist. She is notable as one of the few prominent non-black black separatists. Influenced by Marxism, Maoism, and the thoughts of Malcolm X, she was an advocate for many revolutionary movements.

Like other left-wing extremists, she sided with terrorists against the USA in the aftermath of 9/11, denouncing Americans as the real terrorists:

In response to the United States’ actions following the September 11 attacks in 2001, Kochiyama stated that “the goal of the war [on terrorism] is more than just getting oil and fuel. The United States is intent on taking over the world” and “it’s important we all understand that the main terrorist and the main enemy of the world’s people is the U.S. government. Racism has been a weakness of this country from its beginning. Throughout history, all people of color, and all people who don’t see eye-to-eye with the U.S. government have been subject to American terror.”

She went further:

In 2003, while being interviewed by Tamara Kil Ja Kim Nopper in The Objector, Kochiyama said “… I consider Osama bin Laden as one of the people that I admire. To me, he is in the category of Malcolm X, Che Guevara, Patrice Lumumba, Fidel Castro, all leaders that I admire … [who] had severe dislike for the US government and those who held power in the US. I think all of them felt the US government and its spokesmen were all arrogant, racist, hypocritical, self-righteous, and power hungry….. You asked, ‘Should freedom fighters support him?’ Freedom fighters all over the world, and not just in the Muslim world, don’t just support him; they revere him; they join him in battle. He is no ordinary leader or an ordinary Muslim.”

In the same interview with The Objector, she thanked Islam for Osama bin Laden and his actions against the United States, stating, “..when I think what the US military is doing, brazenly bombing country after country, to take oil resources, bringing about coups, assassinating leaders of other countries, and pitting neighbor nations against each other, and demonizing anyone who disagrees with US policy, and detaining and deporting countless immigrants from all over the world, I thank Islam for bin Laden. America’s greed, aggressiveness, and self-righteous arrogance must be stopped. War and weaponry must be abolished.”

By conspicuously promoting her, Google endorses her views.

Needless to say, Kochiyama was not a fan of limited government, individual liberty, the Constitution, economic freedom, or any of the other blessings that make patriots love America and moonbats hate it. She believed in the kind of tyranny that would swallow the world if America were not there to hold back the darkness. For this, Google extolls her on her birthday.

What are the odds Google will put up a reverent graphic on Thomas Jefferson’s birthday? Yet if America had been founded by people like Yuri Kochiyama instead of people like Thomas Jefferson, there never would have been any Google, or any Internet, or any personal computers. Imagine a communist slave state inventing the computer.

Nun, 86, Gang-Raped and Murdered in South African Mission

Only a few decades ago South Africa was a well-to-do but horrid place, controlled by racist whites who had colonized the region centuries previously. But then the world united in righteous condemnation against this lonely outpost of Western Civilization. Succumbing to public pressure, the Afrikaners turned over power to black leftists prominently featuring the communist terrorist and liberal demigod Nelson Mandela. Now everyone is living happily ever after. See for yourself:

An 86-year-old nun was reportedly gang-raped before being murdered in her bedroom at a South African missionary.

Gertrud Tiefenbacher’s hands had been tied with a typewriter cord and a towel placed over a face, say local police.

Her body was found by other nuns at the Sacred Heart Missionary in Ixopo, a small town 85 miles south-west of Durban. …

A small sum of money – thought to be in euros – had been stolen from her room.

She died of suffocation.

Authorities are not likely to knock themselves out trying to solve the crime. Even the BBC admits that the “government has so far been unwilling to make solving and preventing these murders [i.e., murders of whites] a priority.” Multicultural activities include not only raping and suffocating nuns, but also “drowning infants in boiling water, raping children, disemboweling whole families,” et cetera, et cetera.

Meanwhile, self-defense is not allowed.

When you snuff out the light of Western Civilization, things get dark quickly.

Don’t turn away from the horror that is South Africa. It’s the future our liberal ruling class has planned for us.

Prepping for Genocide

Why did the death of communist terrorist Nelson Mandela evoke such theatrical displays of worship from liberals? It is not so much what Mandela did or was, as what he was a bridge to. This video gives a clue as to the future he bequeathed to South Africa:

Anyone who thinks Deon Richard Duplessis is paranoid needs to read up on the political prospects of Julius Malema, who has promised to turn South Africa into a blood-drenched hellhole in the name of race-based socialism. It happened in Zimbabwe, the basket case that was known as the Breadbasket of Africa prior to black rule. It will almost certainly happen in South Africa too.

That’s what all the Mandelamania is about in liberal circles. The closing in of savage wolves around the dwindling campfire of Western Civilization is the left-wing nihilist dream come true.

HuffPo Readers React to SEAL Massacre

If you thought your opinion of the denizens of Huffington Post — the largest liberal blog — could not get any lower, check out their reaction to the killing of 25 Seal Team 6 members by Islamic savages:

marathon43
They got exactly what they deserved. They voluntarily traveled half-way around the world to kill people who had never done them any harm. They people they were trying to kill killed them first. That’s exactly how things should be. Let’s also remember that our troops have weapons far superior to anything possessed by the people they are trying to kill. Our troops are picking on someone who can’t fight back. That’s called bullying and cowardice. They got what bullies deserve.

kirbybc
you’d be killing “them” too if they invaded your land. less than 100 AQ in Afghanistan and Taliban are nothing more than freedom fighters in AFG.

FoxNewsCreationism
They got a myopic fast tracked American education while being transformed into brainwashed killing machines. I do not called that educated. Men who work in offices are definitely better than men who take up arms and who invade other countries illegally and then proceed to kill the native population. These men are specialized in killing. Nothing more. The are robots who kill for a greedy criminal empire. Also as for brains, I hold three degrees. Speak and write 4 languages. I highly doubt there is my equal in the US military. If there is, there are not many. 99.99 of military personal are just grunts. Even these guys. Anyone that takes up arms and invades another country illegally and then proceeds in killing the native population, is a zero in my book.

special operations Troops are responsible for the ultra deadly “night raids” that basically murder people in their homes. Night raids generally kill Taliban personnel in their own homes, and thus outside the context of a military operation. we should celebrate the victory not the actual deaths but yes, they were occupying forces & a legitimate target.
