“This is Africa. Nobody cares about Africa.” – Sahara
We really should care about Africa… these are communist despots we are talking about and they are redistributionist and murderous. Apartheid may have ended, but now South Africa is swinging the other way big time. White farmers are furious and the government has announced the seizure of 139 farms to redistribute to black farmers in a supreme incidence of racist social justice. These farmers did not hurt or kill anyone. They aren’t engaged in racism either, yet they are having what they have worked their whole lives for ripped from them and given to someone else based solely on skin color.
South African President Cyril Ramaphosa announced last week plans to allow white people’s land to be taken without compensation, which will then be distributed to black people in a move that he believes will be good for the economy. That won’t end well for South Africa’s ruling African National Congress (ANC) and it will definitely egg on class warfare and violence. There have already been numerous incidents that I’ve heard of concerning the murdering of white people in South Africa simply because they are white. The president made the announcement late on Tuesday in a televised address to the nation.
The media cited Zizi Kodwa, a member of the ANC’s national executive committee (NEC), as saying that the move should be “appreciated” by domestic and international investors, given that “long-term investment is tied [to] ownership of land by the majority of people.” “In other words, if you are talking about sustainable long-term certainty, it is tied to addressing the injustices of the past. You can appreciate the jittery response and so on, the shocks at the moment, but what we are doing now is to create policy certainty and the conditions for future investment,” Kodwa added.
