President Trump’s tweet about the persecution of white farmers by the racist ANC government touched off the usual flurry of media spinning and fake fact checking. The media is eager to inform readers that the South African constitution has not yet been changed to allow for the ethnic cleansing of white farmers.
That’s just the plan.
The fake “72% of the land is owned by white farmers” statistic is constantly bandied about to justify it.
But here are 3 things that the media refuses to report.
1. The ANC is allied with the South African Communist Party. And there’s been plenty of overlap there throughout the years that the two are arguably the same. Land confiscation is not just a racist policy. It’s a classic Communist policy.
2. South African President Cyril Ramaphosa made a huge fortune in the “private sector” after his time in the ANC. Who will actually benefit from land seizures? Won’t it just be a repetition of Mugabe’s land seizures in Zimbabwe which impoverished the country and led to famine?
3. Violence against white farmers is not, as CBS false claimed, unrelated to land seizures. The violence is often the hidden hand of those looking to drive white farmers off their land so that they can be incorporated into the new feudalism taking hold in South Africa.
