Zimbabwe Begs for White Farmers to Return

Just last year, Zimbabwe’s current president Emmerson Mnangagwa proclaimed that whites would never get their land back. But already Zimbabwe is begging them to return.

These white Africans had made the country into the Breadbasket of Africa when it was known as Rhodesia, but were brutally oppressed and dispossessed under black rule. After they had been driven out, Zimbabwe predictably collapsed into a basket case.

Now we read this:

Crisis-torn Zimbabwe is on the brink of “manmade starvation” with most households unable to obtain enough food to meet basic standards, a UN envoy has said.

Here’s why the starvation is “manmade”:

News24 reports that Mugabe and his Zanu-PF party launched the controversial land reforms in 2000, forcibly seizing white-owned farms to resettle landless blacks. Mugabe said the reforms were meant to correct colonial land ownership imbalances.

At least 4,000 white commercial farmers were evicted from their farms.

The land seizures were often violent, claiming the lives of several white farmers during clashes with veterans of Zimbabwe’s 1970s liberation struggle.

It wasn’t just black Zimbabweans who were liberated. Now the farmland is liberated too. Instead of having to produce crops, it was allowed to go back to sprouting weeds.

Who would have guessed that it takes skill and hard work to grow food? Normally, grunting Marxist slogans can accomplish anything.

The Zimbabwean government’s message to exiled white farmers is now clear. Come back to Zimbabwe and save us.

The nation is offering land leases to white commercial farmers in an effort to re-start the nation’s agricultural industry.

Any whites who return will inevitably get dispossessed again after their farms become productive, despite the offer of 99-year leases, which had previously been reserved for blacks. Caucasians do not have secure property rights in Africa.

This includes South Africa, which is consciously following the same path Zimbabwe took.

South Africa won’t have to beg white farmers to return, though. The liberal establishment is so invested in the regime it created by pressuring whites to surrender the country that the West will carry South Africa on its back — at least until suicidal altruism turns the West into an extension of Africa.
