Vail Daily letter: White genocide nearly imminent in South Africa

Editor’s note: Find a cited version of this letter at

I came across a story on South Africa that so flew in the face of everything I thought I knew that I had to dig deeper because the story was so riveting. I spent a month reading every story I could find and listening to what the ruling African National Congress government and its rivals were doing and saying.

Shocking is the best way to describe it. Things like “I am not calling for the slaughter of whites, not for now,” the Economic Freedom Fighters Party Leader Julius Malema said to a large crowd gathered. You can see for yourself on YouTube.

One of Julius’ tribe described what that meant in his cultural parlance is “get in the starting blocks and wait for the gun to sound” and/or “I won’t stop you if you jump the gun.” Malema has been filmed leading the singing of “Shoot the Boer, Kill the Farmer” to his followers. A rash of savage farmer murders happened not long after that.

Then I watched the South African President Jacob Zuma also lead a huge gathering in singing “Shoot the Farmer.” I could reach only one conclusion: White genocide in South Africa is happening, it’s government supported, and it’s a long process. More than a quarter of the Afrikaner population now lives in squalor; dirt-floor tin shacks with no plumbing or electricity. Concentration camps that need no guards or walls; it’s an economic prison you can’t escape from. That’s what radical Affirmative Action has done.

More than 70,000 Afrikaners have been murdered since South Africa handed over power to Nelson Mandela in 1994. That in no way minimizes the 300,000 or 400,000 black people murdered since the African National Congress came into being.

Most folks think of genocide as a mass extermination event of a targeted ethnic group in a short amount of time. That is just the second to last phase before denial and cover up, according the Dr. Gregory Stanton, of He has dedicated his life to warning the world while there’s still time. Stanton pegs the South African situation at nearly redline for a mass-murder event of the white population. Spend the next few weeks reading about thousands of brutal farmer murders, rapes and torture for hours or days, and then try to deny it’s happening for real.

Aug. 3, 2017, has been given as a deadline for the whites to walk away from their farms with no compensation. The ones inclined to leave have already left. Malema is on film stating that he “cannot guarantee what will happen if whites don’t hand over the land.” The man is about as subtle as a sledgehammer.

He publicly stated, “As soon as 80 percent of the Afrikaner’s farmland is given away to the government, the attacks will stop.” This is an undeniable direct link between a political party leader and brutal and unspeakable horror unleashed on peaceful farmers who have been there for 365 years and feed the country; it’s national suicide.
