South Africa a Powder Keg: Racial and Religious Persecution Growing
In the years before World War Two, the Nazis demonised the Jews, and anti-Jewish hatred increased by a process of gradualism, until many in Germany came to believe the propaganda and to support the extermination of the Jews. As Joseph Goebbels is credited with saying: “A lie once told remains a lie, but a lie told a thousand times becomes truth…. If you repeat a lie often enough, people will come to believe it.” The Nazis followed this policy – and it worked.
In the years before the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, conducted mainly by the majority Hutu tribe against the minority Tutsi tribe, Hutu fanatics demonised the Tutsis, calling them “cockroaches” (implying the need to exterminate them), etc., ad anti-Tutsi hatred increased by a process of gradualism, until many Hutus came to believe the propaganda and to support the extermination of the Tutsis.
In the years before the year 2000 in Zimbabwe, white commercial farmers, and white Zimbabweans in general, were demonised constantly, and anti-white hatred increased by a process of gradualism, until it finally exploded in the violent, murderous invasions of white-owned farms by tens of thousands of blacks, who drove the farmers off their land, often killed them, and beat up and killed their workers. Zimbabwe collapsed as a result, its inflation reaching the highest in recorded world history.
And in South Africa, in the years since the Communist-influenced African National Congress (ANC) came to power in 1994, white (Afrikaans and English) South Africans, who are a minority in South Africa, have been deliberately demonised almost daily, in all kinds of ways, and anti-white hatred has increased by a process of gradualism, so that a great many black South Africans have come to believe the propaganda and to support the extermination of white South Africans in the land of their birth.
Given the fact that the world was led to believe that the ANC is a wonderful, colour-blind “liberation movement” instead of a Communist terrorist outfit, many worldwide have been brainwashed into believing the propaganda lie that South Africa under ANC (mis)government is a paradise on earth, a glorious “rainbow nation” where everyone, black and white, lives in perfect harmony, contentment and peace. Without even looking into the accumulated evidence of the past 24 years, which would require an entire book as there is just so much, all we have to do is consider very recent events in this deeply troubled country. It is enough to send a chill of horror down every true Christian’s spine:
When Peter Groenewald, a white Member of Parliament belonging to the opposition Freedom Front Plus, gave a report in parliament about the horrific tortures being inflicted on white farmers in South Africa, a black ANC Member of Parliament jeered and shouted, “Bury them alive!”
Velaphi Khumalo, of the Arts and Culture Department of the province of Gauteng, said: “I want to cleanse the country of all white people. White people in South Africa deserve to be hacked and killed. You must be burned alive and skinned and your offspring be used as garden fertiliser.”
Luvuyo Maxmenziwa said: “I hate white people… just get me a bazooka or AK-47 so I can do the right thing and kill these demon possessed humans.”(Farms and Freedom Under Fire in South Africa, 21 March 2018. Frontline Fellowship, Cape Town)
“Here follows a compilation of quotes and policies from ANC leaders: ‘All white people are criminals and should be treated as such. We need to take their property, deny them job opportunities and treat them as second class citizens. White people are rapists, dogs and cowards. We need to sing songs about how they should be mowed down and murdered. White people are in the minority and that means they must have fewer rights than the rest of us. Absolutely, that is how democracy works and if they dare to protest against these views, we must tell them to keep their mouths shut because they are racists who are simply getting what they deserve.’” (Farms and Freedom Under Fire in South Africa, 21 March 2018. Frontline Fellowship, Cape Town)
After the murder of a 76-year-old white farmer, a black major in the South African National Defence Force, M.V. Mohlala, said: “It is your turn now, white people… [the farmer] should have had his eyes and tongue cut out so that the faces of his attackers would be the last thing he sees…” For this atrocious and evil statement he was merely reprimanded by the Defence Force! (Freedom Front Plus Newsletter 570, 10 April 2018).
Julius Malema, leader of the radical, virulently anti-white party called the Economic Freedom Fighters, which purports to be in opposition to the ANC but which in reality often works hand in hand with it, said this very year, “We are cutting the throat of whiteness” in South Africa. To his hundreds of thousands of black followers, this statement would have been understood to mean: go out and kill white people if need be.
This is the kind of hatred spewing out of the mouths of men and women who want the world to take them seriously and treat them as civilised human beings. Yet they are today what they were before the ANC came to power: terrorists, thugs, vicious and violent people, whose anti-white hatred reveals them to be no better than the cruellest, most barbaric savage in nineteenth-century Africa.
This is South Africa today, the true legacy of Nelson Mandela and his terrorist ANC. This is how it started in Germany before World War Two, in Rwanda before 1994, in Zimbabwe before 2000. It is naive, indeed extremely foolish, to believe that, somehow, things will be different in South Africa. If things continue as they are now, it will not be any different. Indeed, the country is already far down that line. The only difference is many white South Africans will fight back. Many people with the expertise to know what they are talking about, and not just in SA, are saying that a civil war is now a very real possibility – and that is a nightmare scenario for any country. The country is on a knife-edge.
We call upon the Lord’s people all over the world to uphold their brethren in Christ in this troubled land.
Also, please continue to pray about the proposed Hate Speech Bill, and the Regulation of Religion Bill, both under serious consideration in South Africa ! These are extremely dangerous bills for every Christian in this country. By way of remainder, here is a repetition of what was published in our last newsletter:
A huge legal threat is facing Christians in South Africa, via two pieces of proposed legislation which have been described as two of the greatest threats to freedom of religion and freedom of speech that South Africa has ever faced.
The first is a government commission report on State regulation of religion, which wants to create compulsory “accredited umbrella organisations”, with the authority to monitor, investigate and discipline their members, as well as to decide which religious teachings or practices will be deemed legitimate. It is also proposed to make it compulsory for every church and every pastor to be registered/licenced in order to practice. All this amounts to outright State control of religion. And the second is the “Prevention and Combatting of Hate Crimes and Hate Speech Bill”, which if passed will make certain offences “hate crimes”. It will criminalise almost any communication that any person or group may not like, disagree with or find offensive.
Please pray for the true Church of God in South Africa in these very dangerous and troubling times!
