Is South Africa About to Get a Lot Worse?

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


Julius+Malema

Well yes. Obviously. After the usual post-election riots (which are now mandatory) and the usual discovery of massive ANC voter fraud, the snapshot is interesting in a mostly bad way.

The ANC is slowly beginning to fade so if it is to maintain its corrupt oligarchy, it’s going to have to either become fully totalitarian, Mugabe style, or cut a deal with extremists who make it look good.

Twenty years have passed since South Africa’s first democratic election, and 24 since Nelson Mandela walked free. Yet last week the ruling African National Congress still used Mr. Mandela’s photo as its symbol on the ballot instead of President Jacob Zuma’s, recognizing that the party’s popularity was being sullied by a president caught in a web of corruption charges.

Rape alone didn’t sully his image. But now Zuma will run under the Eternal Mandela who rules over South Africa forever… even though Mandela had come to despise what the ANC had become.

The A.N.C. won with 62 percent, down from over 65 percent in 2009…

The hitherto white-dominated Democratic Alliance finished second, with 22 percent of the national vote. It devoted a great amount of its resources to breaking out of its Western Cape stronghold and targeted Gauteng Province, which includes the huge metropolis of Johannesburg and neighboring Pretoria. It put money behind its candidate for the premiership of Gauteng, Mmusi Maimane, who is young, handsome and black.

Echoing Barack Obama, he asked for a mandate to move beyond history and toward an agenda of technocratic planning for the benefit of all.

Mr. Maimane’s was not the only youthful face. Those who deserted the A.N.C. or were expelled clustered around Julius Malema and his populist Economic Freedom Fighters, standing on a platform of radical redistribution…

The E.F.F. became the nation’s third-largest party, with 6 percent. And it gained huge leverage over Johannesburg, reducing the A.N.C.’s share of the urban vote to 53 percent…

Since a two-thirds majority is needed to push through radical constitutional changes, everyone is looking at the A.N.C.’s 62 percent and the E.F.F.’s 6 percent and wondering whether there could be a compromise on the nationalization of land and mining that paves the way for an A.N.C. reunion.

Malema is unsubtle about the whole killing white people thing.

Social media buzzed on Monday over a picture of a banner allegedly shown at the Economic Freedom Fighter (EFF) launch in Marikana.

A picture showing a red banner with the words “A revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate” was quickly shared on various social networks on Monday.

Another picture shows a banner saying “Honeymoon is over for white people in South Africa”.

On the other hand, Malema is promising “No white genocide.” Read his lips.

“I do not hate white people. I want us to share in the countries (sic) wealth which is in the hands of the minority,” he said in an online chat on social networking site Facebook on Tuesday.

“There will never be a white genocide under our rule.”

Some politicians promise no new taxes. South Africa has gotten so bad that its third largest party promises no white genocide.

Honest.

  • Manaphy

    The only reason South Africa is the way it is now is because the Jewish Supremacists of that country forced perverted Jewish “values” such as “all races are equal” and “whites are evil”. Now, Jewish supremacists want to do the same to America. They want to flood the country with non-white “immigrants” and force American soldiers to die in pointless wars for Israel. Jews are parasites, and FrontPageMag is heir enabler.

    • jude newman

      Hahaha, that’s my best laugh of the day

    • Ban Liberals

      Fucking moron!

    • Daniel Greenfield

      That must be why the evil Jewish Front Page Mag keeps running posts and articles like this warning about what a disaster South Africa has become.

      • Manaphy

        No, I’m pointing out that it is pointless to talk about the problem with South Africa if you refuse to name the cause.

        • Gee

          You are the pointless racist

        • Daniel Greenfield

          The cause never being you… of course.

          How convenient.

        • SCREW SOCIALISM

          desmond tutu, welcome to frontpagemag!

        • Mike Miller

          Not sure where you get your facts from. White Jewish Socialist Supremacists were so disappointed in Mandela that they left the ANC with their heads hung in shame. Also you need to differentiate between Jews that practice Judaism and those like the list by StJohnofAustria who had renounced their Judaism for their own political gain. Unfortunately many, many Jews looking for a better life opt for Marxism and always, always fail. Even Black Communists like Nelson Mandela eventually fail. The problem in South Africa (I live here) is that Black Culture and Marxism do not mix well. So we live in a corrupted hodge podge not unlike many countries (like the USA) where Marxism and the local culture do not mix. If you want to link the fact that Karl Marx was a Jew to the conclusion that all the ills of the world are caused by Jews as many people do – WELL DONE!!! You are one of millions, so don’t feel lonely.

          • Frank Morris

            “White Jewish Socialist Supremacists were so disappointed in Mandela that they left the ANC with their heads hung in shame.”

            Because even he was not radical enough to suit them. They are doing the same thing in all white countries. AIPAC is flooding American politicians with donations to get Open Borders, aka the browning of America. They get the money from the US taxpayer they are working diligently to replace, via “foreign aid.”

          • A1974

            Whites need get out of my land in South Africa. We don’t want your culture. You want your computers pay us reparations.

          • Frank Morris

            As I said in another comment here, I support bringing every single white South African who is not responsible for this mess to the USA. Keep your computers.

          • Mike Miller

            I would agree except that South Africa is a really amazing place to live, and parts of the USA will be under Sharia Law before South Africa is.
            The vast majority of Black people are fantastic fellow citizens and are the reason South Africa is so nice. Those that have been brainwashed by Communists and Desmond Tutu speak loud meaningless drivel.

          • Frank Morris

            Let me rephrase. All of them who want to come. I bet that will be darn near all of them.

          • Mike Miller

            I wish it were that simple. I would venture to suggest that more Blacks who are tired of the ANC would want to come to the USA than whites!

          • A1974

            We would love it when whites leave and go to Europe or America. Their you can enjoy the own culture awareness and the two races can live better lives. We don’t want White Afrikaner Culture. PERIOD!

          • Drakken

            Good luck living in the stone age then.

          • Frank Morris

            We don’t want them!

          • Mike Miller

            You have a much bigger problem in the USA with Obama opening the flood gates to Moslem terrorists to fill America.

          • Frank Morris

            We have too many of them, but the floodgates have not been opened to muslims, they’ve been open to Mexicans, which is just as bad. I’m against all of it.

          • Drakken

            Obummer is opening the floodgates to every 3rd world savage that wants to come.

          • A1974

            We would be a better nation without you interlooping whites stealing land that belong to black people. Go back to Europe.

          • Mike Miller

            Go back to the bush….

          • A1974

            HEY BOER THERE’S ONLY 3.5 MILLION OF YOU PEOPLE. IN 20 YEARS YOU’LL DISAPPEAR LIKE FLEAS SINCE MOST OF YOU FARMERS ARE GETTING WIPED OUT.

          • Drakken

            And you dumb kaffirs will starve. Not one more inch to you savages.

          • UCSPanther

            I’d love to see you try, spear chucker.

          • Drakken

            Well Mike, you had better have a lot of R-4′s and plenty of ammo, because sooner or later it is going to come to survival.

          • Mike Miller

            Wont settle for anything less than a Barrett .50 CAL!!!!

          • Mike Miller

            Just because I am white doesn’t make me any less African or South African than you.

          • Drakken

            The Afrikaner’s owe you jack sh*t, you owe them for the modern society that your running into the ground.

          • A1974

            F*cK YOU MODERN SOCIETY. AS FAR BLACK PEOPLE IN SOUTH AFRICA ARE CONCERN, IT SHOULD BE SHOVED RIGHT IN YOUR OWN PEOPLE’S A$$. P.S YOU WANT YOU SO-CALLED INVENTED THINGS, FIND ANOTHER H ITLER AND TRY TO BRING BACK THE THIRD RIECH.

          • UCSPanther

            You ain’t gonna get your 40 acres and a mule.

            No handouts.

          • A1974

            I don’t know what that means. Any way whites need to leave South Africa.

          • Mike Miller

            Frank, sorry to say you are nit making any sense…

          • David

            Yeah, immigration into Western countries is a Jewish conspiracy to destroy the purity of the white race in order to…I don’t know, take over the world or something. I’m a bit fuzzy on the details but then again so are most anti-Semites.

          • Drakken

            It isn’t AIPAC that is doing damage, it is the leftist do gooders who have self loathing, self hating and suicidal tendencies a mile long. I was agreeing with you until you brought this jewish conspiracy garbage up.

          • Frank Morris

            The matter of AIPAC spending millions in campaign contributions and PAC donations to advocate Open Borders is not a conspiracy, it is a matter of public record. Anyone who wants can file a FOIA, or do a quick Google search and get the hard numbers.

          • David

            Also, Karl Marx is a Jew in the same way Max Blumenthal is.

          • Mike Miller

            Yip…Virulent Anti-Semites…

      • Steve Fair

        LMAO!!!! Keep kissing that white racist butt Greeny. You can hate black folks all you want. The white supremacist types still hate YOU.

        • Drakken

          Just like clockwork, all us crackers are racist and everything is all our fault. Yeah we got it shortbus, you hate whitey.

        • Daniel Greenfield

          … much like the black supremacist types.

          Your point?

          • Steve Fair

            Amazing. You don’t even deny kissin white supremacist butt and demonizing blacks to impress them. Have you no pride man?

    • UCSPanther

      Yeah, Like we are responsible for the fact that the mindless left wing did much to send Zimbabwe into the Abyss and leave South Africa teetering on it…

      • Manaphy

        Not the “left”.

        • UCSPanther

          If all you can produce is some stupid Der Sturmer cartoon, you lose.

          • Manaphy

            Der Strumer hasn’t existed since the 1940′s.

          • UCSPanther

            Seeing how you still keep pushing the crude caricatures that Julius Streicher shabbed together, I would still say that it does.

            Besides, I know you are a rabid antisemite, and I have to ask:

            If you hate Jews so much, why do you insist on coming to this site seeing that it is a pro-Jewish/pro-Israel site?

    • mrkerryh

      Yea sure go and tell another one ! Like the one : The homosexuals have not the slightest hate for those who disagree with their agenda ! Yea ! And that the blackman in America, by the Republican Party was told to go back to Africa as told by the Demoncrat Party !

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      Hey, socialist, please FOAD.

    • Wolfthatknowsall

      …and FrontPageMag is heir enabler.”

      Who are they inheriting it from?

  • Andrew

    One can’t help but laugh at the liberal “one-staters” who point at South Africa as some shining beacon of what Israel could become if they had their insane ways.

    • Gee

      It would be far worse in Israel than South Africa has become

      • Frank Morris

        It might be nearly as bad, but as a person who has reported on the South African Genocide, I find it hard to believe anything could be worse.

        • A1974

          Whites should leave South Africa anyway. We don’t want European Culture anymore.

          • Drakken

            Yeah, you should go back to the way you black african’ts always do things, slaughter the nearest tribe because you can, great idea. Meanwhile your turning SA into Rhodesia. When you start starving, and disease ridden, I say let it happen.

          • A1974

            Too bad the white population the is shrinking not only in relative but in real terms. Two hundred million white people, one in every six on earth — a number equal to the entire population of France, Britain, Holland and Germany — will vanish by 2060 do the increase of the Muslim and Middle Eastern population. I say that once they take over Europe and America, you beg for the return of Jesus when they force Sharia Law on you people.

          • Drakken

            Europe is going to have a very nasty uncivil war soon that will make you Africans jealous by it brutality and viciousness, .See the Balkans as a reference, so a takeover by the muslims is a tad premature. Never underestimate the Europeans propensity for totally eliminating their enemies when push comes to shove.

          • A1974

            Whites will revert back to caves and will still continue to have very low birth rates.

          • A1974

            The only hope for you white is if you can find another great white like H itler which won’t happen.

          • A1974

            Zimbabwe, Namibia and South Africa are doing much better without white rule so don’t be jealous or upset.

          • Drakken

            Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) is starving, Namibia discovered oil and is barely hanging on until someone wants that oil wealth, and SA is on the crux of being a failed state, just like the rest of Africa. Let nature take its course, the more you people slaughter each other, it is less for us to feed. When the colonialist ran things, it kept you folks from slaughtering each other, built roads, railways, bridges, modern cities, otherwise you would still be living in mud huts, chucking spears at each other. Your welcome.

          • A1974

            At the same you people where involved in the Slave trade and killed Tribes all over Africa. White man’s inventions’? What do you think white culture is? Its a vulture culture, it create carcasses of cultures, then feeds off them, claiming inventions as its own.
            Do you even understand how little white people contribute to technology? They are one of the most illiterate in regards to technology. With swathes of American’s studying non scientific areas, people from Asia, India and elsewhere are working within large tech corporations, which is where you clearly get confused. You don’t look and see who is doing the actual work.

            Its also amusing how uneducated whites, take credit for educated whites, people whom they have nothing in common with other than the color of their skin.

          • David

    But… but… the Mandellas fixed everything!

    Since Africans took Africa from the British (mostly) and French and other whites, Africa has become what it is today: a morass of lawlessness and turmoil.

    RAAACIST!

  • oneteedoffpatriot

    Funny how Marxists are so much alike all over the world. The Second Amendment will be vigorously and endlessly attacked. They must remove it.

  • Chavi Beck

    This is beyond frightening. I can’t believe I’m seeing this happen in my lifetime.

  • herb benty

    Here in Canada, more and more white South African’s are showing up, some claiming refugee status( the left mock the idea as absurd of course. Whites…..refugees?). One young man from SA answered me, “Worse”, when I asked him if things were as bad for whites as we were hearing.

        What’s the matter? That dead commi is your hero.

    • 95Theses

      He looks good in Red. And so à propos!

  • David

    This should go without saying, but let’s just be clear: the problem with South Africa is not that it’s ruled by blacks, it’s that it is ruled by leftists.

    • Robert4

      And yet, it MUST be said, what to counteract the virulent, Greenfieldesque racism.

      • David

        Well, given the fact that Frank “the racist” Morris was attracted to this article like a moth to flame, I think it might be necessary.

        • Drakken

          Stick your race card up your commi azz. Frank speaks of facts and reality, and here you are screaming, why can’t we all just get along as the slaughter takes place, effing moron.

          • David

            Yeah, I’m a communist, that’s why I attributed racial conflict and lack of economic development to left wing ideology sown in by the Soviets. Idiot.

          • Drakken

            Racial conflict no matter what, is always an inevitable conflict waiting to happen, just add gas and a match.

          • David

            I think my black wife and our two children might disagree with you. By the way, we’re also practicing Jews:)

    • Frank Morris

      Sweden, Norway, Denmark, The Netherlands, etc., are all run by leftists. The problem in South Africa is black rule, trendy sentiments notwithstanding.

      • A1974

        South Africa belongs to Black people. Whites needs to stay in Europe and America.

        • Mike Miller

          South Africa belongs to those people who had the balls to make a difference here. If you don’t like it…..leave…

          • A1974

            I live in South Africa and I’m a Bushman. You’re people came here illegally. Go back to Europe.

          • Mike Miller

            I was born and bred here. I have as much right to be here as you do. You are free whenever you like to go back to the bush. I am not sure what twisted logic tells you that because your ancestors lived somewhere in Africa, anyone else in the world may not come here to live.

          • A1974

            I WAS BORN AND RAISE IN SOWETO. I HAVE MORE RIGHTS THAN YOU TO LIVE ON THIS LAND TOO. YOUR PEOPLE CAME IN 1652 AND SLAUGHTER MY TRIBE THAT I BELONG TO. NOW THAT YOUR PEOPLE NO LONG RULE SOUTH AFRICA YOU NOW KNOW HOW IT REALLY FEELS TO BE A SECOND CLASS CITIZEN. ESPECIALLY SINCE THE ANC WON AGAIN AND THE EFF LEAD BY JULIUS MALEMA WILL BE IN PARLIAMENT. HOPEFULLY MALEMA WILL BE THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF SOUTH AFRICA, TO THE POINT THAT YOU’LL BE FORCE TO EXCEPT THE RULE OF LAW OR LEAVE SOUTH AFRICA.

          • Mike Miller

            The ANC and the EFF are so far up the backsides of White businessmen they don’t even know what Black people look like anymore. If you think that Julius or Jacob are going to redeem you, I want what you are smoking. Black people were slaughtering Black people long before 1652 and they havnt stopped. White people have far more respect for Black people than Black people have for each other. You are more likely to be killed by an ANC or EFF supporter than you are by any White person. Get real!

          • A1974

            I agree with about the ANC when it died in Dec.6 with Madeba. Jacob cater to White Oligarchy which also explains why you now have close to million poor whites. The EFF under Julius Malema we intend to get rid of them an nationalize the farmland and the resources. So what if it’s Socialism.

          • Mike Miller

            Firstly, it was Madeba himself that started the rotten deals with White businessmen.
            Secondly, good luck to you placing your faith in Malema. He will suck you dry without a hint of remorse and dance on your grave.
            There are thousands of incredibly talented Black leaders in this country, but the ANC and now the EFF will never allow them to see the light of day. Why? Because they are radicals! The radically expect people to have integrity…..

          • Drakken

            When you idiots nationalize the farmland and kick out all the whites, you dumb kaffirs will starve like they are in Rhodesia, talk about poetic justice.

          • A1974

            WHO CARES? ROBERT MUGABE WAS RIGHTLY JUSTIFIED IN DOING WHAT HE DID TO YOUR RACE. AS LONG AS YOU CRACKERS ARE OUT OF A LIVES THINKS WILL BE A LOT BETTER JUST. SOUTH AFRICA, ZIMBABWE AND NAMIBIA DON’T BELONG TO YOU AND YOUR PEOPLE. YOU WANT TO STOP THE BLACK RACE FIND ANOTHER H ITLER.

          • Steve Fair

            As if white people haven’t been slaughtering each other since the beginning of time (check out Eastern Europe recently?) but have actually crossed oceans to exterminate aboriginal peoples of other continents. The arrogance and vaingloriousness of you racists is a wonder to behold.

          • David

            UNLEASH THE FURY!!!

          • Drakken

            Go join your ANC brothers, I am sure Boers can use the target practice, or the Zulus will enjoy hacking you to pieces.

          • Drakken

          Cool. When the Africans in Europe and North America return to Africa, I’ll agree with you.

          • Frank Morris

            Isn’t it grand how we can find common ground when speaking openly?

          • A1974

            Indeed.

      • David

        First of all, the SA government is ruled by people farther to the left.
        Second of all, The countries you mention were already fully developed, industrialized, and integrated into the world’s economy when leftists took over. By contrast, SA was vastly underdeveloped and its population was undereducated when the apartheid regime fell.

        • Drakken

          You haven’t been to Africa have you? The same black mentality that runs SA runs the rest of them. It is black tribalism at its least lowest common denominator.

    • Drakken

      Ever been to Africa? It is the same bloody thing all over that bloody continent, so yes it is the natives.

  • Veracious_one

    South Africa is turning into a nation of decrepit slums and derelict cities….which brings joy to those who ran off the colonialists and sharp business people…they have things just the way they wanted it….heck even Robert Mugabe looks on with admiration….he did the same to his country…

  • cacslewisfan

    Time to leave South Africa, regardless of your race.

    • sascha11

      Yeah and go where???Have the blacks that support, condone and encourage the lawlessness and crime infect other countries????They say it’s “their” country….well then have at it. Problem is they dont have the work ethics or capability to do so. All of Africa is awash in tribal and religious violence. There is no fixing that. The whites would be smart to get out while they still can.

      • Drakken

        We could emulate the Chinese who are moving into Africa by the droves, if a tribe harms one Chin, the Chins eliminate the whole village.

    • Frank Morris

      I support bringing every one of the white South Africans to the USA as refugees, but I do not want a single one of the savage black South Africans here, ever.

      • A1974

        Go back to Europe.

        • Frank Morris

          How about telling the millions of Africans stinking up Europe to go back to Africa?

          • A1974

            I agree! Blacks need to leave that Pile hole place called Europe.

          • Drakken

            Good riddance and enjoy the slaughter you savages wreak upon yourselves.

  • ursa5000

    So very sad…. I was in South Africa last year and found the the country alive and vibrant. I meet many blacks who were genuinely happy to talk to an American. Almost all said they only wanted a job, a family and a house and would the government just please leave them alone. And intrestingly enough, every black I talked to really hated Muslim immigration into SA.

    I found so many good and kind folks in SA, black and white..and yet the 1% at the top are just corrupt thugs…Just like Washington D.C.

    • Robert4

      Yes, it’s important to hold to the Greenfieldian line: MOOZLUMS “R” BAD.

      • Boots

        Could you please be specific about what in Greenfield’s article is incorrect? I don’t believe he’s ever said all Muslims are bad even though I’m pretty sure he has said those who kidnap 300 girls, murder apostates and infidels, apologists for radical Islamists, and those seeking to impose Sharia on non believers are evil. Are you saying those he targets aren’t evil and if so why or how has he misrepresented the kidnappings, murders, honor killings and such? Please document what you believe his lies are with substance and leave the name calling out.

    • Frank Morris

      Your anecdotal evidence notwithstanding there is an ongoing genocide against SA whites, and it is VERY popular among the blacks.

      • A1974

        Whites don’t belong in South Africa.

        • Drakken

          Funny, without those whites you hate in SA, you would be starving. I am going to sit back with a bourbon and watch as the Zulu’s and Bantu’s and Shoshanna start slaughtering each other, and then come beg the west for handouts to save them.

    I watched a video from early this year where the ANC activists stomped and used an axe to beat a political opponent to death.
    They could have been one of Odumba’s sons

    • Frank Morris

      Check out the videos of them “necklacing” people. This is a technique that was pioneered by Winnie Mandela & the ANC. You put a car tire around a living persons head, and set fire to it.

    This is why the whites are leaving South Africa. They no longer get 100% of all the goodies. http://yazkam.wordpress.com/2013/04/30/south-africas-black-middle-class-is-booming/

      Looks a little like Detroit, Gary and South Side Chicago. The Boers and the Brits built the country dumbazz.

        The country was built by black labor. Just like America.

          Not quite Buckwheat, but you go ahead and keep drinking the kool aid of black liberation theology, your soooo much more smarter than the rest of us crackers.

            Sorry. Did I just plagiarize?

      Then why do people of mixed race also want to get out?

      • Steve Fair

        Evidence please.

    As European American I totally agree with some of these posts. Whites must get out from SA while they can. We have to push for a bill in the Congress to give them refugee protection.

    No non-Jewish South Africans were involved in any way.

    Shlomo Goldstein and David Silverberg and three other fellows did it all.

    And who can forget South African President Bernie Wasserstein and Malky Kleinbaum.

    Or General Yossi Ashkenazi.

    Sepperl das Depperl.

    Stop reading Lanz von Liebefels and stop commenting your hogwash as if it was even close to facts Judenhasser.

  • SCREW SOCIALISM

    The little primate monkey, desmond tutu hates Jews because the Jews in your list helped end REAL Apartheid in South Africa.

    The wreckage of nations is the fault of SOCIALISTS like your SHlTler and Stalin who bombed and invaded Europe.
