My hat goes off to Censorbugbear for the meticulous and extremely detailed latest report on the farm murders in SA. Please make sure you click and view this updated report. It really is a shocker. For me it has been pretty much an academic issue and those numbers meant very little, until I read this post.
The detail is incredible and includes an alphabetical name list of victims as well as numerous links to articles and other sources. It was only as I read those names (so many of them; little white crosses in a field, line after line after line) that it hit me. Names I have seen before and other people that I met and knew in SA with the same names, names like Sarie, Petro, Babs, Tienie, Ockie and many, many more, I went ice cold. 3074! This is real!!!
There is some form of ethnic cleansing going on in SA. It may not be ANC sponsored, but it certainly is ANC condoned and tacitly sanctioned. There is not a doubt remaining in my mind anymore. This is low grade, subtle genocide. I implore you, especially overseas readers, view the site with an open mind. I am including Adriana's introductory comment to the article.
South Africa has less than 11,000 ‘white’ commercial farmers left, growing food-crops on less than ONE PERCENT of the entire land surface. Thus, this death toll of more than 3,070 white farmers out of 11,000 in total, definitely represents the world’s highest murder-rate, being at nearly 30,000 per 100,000 of this population group.
The most dangerous job in the world clearly is to be a white agriculturalist in South Africa. And most of these agriculturalists (Boers) also belong to the Afrikaner ethnic minority -- whereas the country’s more than 1-million upwardly mobile black farmers aren’t being attacked like this – indicating that this small white Afrikaner minority of rural dwellers is being targeted very deliberately for an ethnic-cleansing campaign to clear them from the countryside.
Also note that the South African crime statistics are routinely being manipulated downward for political reasons. Even so, the country’s official average annual murder-rate is the world’s second-highest, at nearly 122 murders per 100,000 residents.
