When the communist African National Congress (ANC) took power in South Africa (SA), they quickly followed the advice of current markets and opened the country’s borders to black immigrants from any African nation. Earlier this year, however, these policies exploded into anti-immigrant riots and scenes of Africans from non-South African tribes being burned in the streets and murdered with machetes. Such scenes were not reported in the international press, which wants the world to believe that South Africa is a utopia now that blacks have liberated the country from Europeans and are running it themselves.
The violence began when the Zulu king gave a speech in Zulu stating that all immigrants must leave the Zulu homeland, which is the eastern portion of SA. Mobs in the port city of Durban then began to attack non-Zulu blacks and non-blacks, part of a rolling mass action that quickly spread to Johannesburg and other South African cities. Videos of hundreds of murders were broadcast on the Internet.
Black South Africans quickly blamed the ANC for the violence.
“The ANC stopped controlling the borders,” Moelets Mbeki, brother of SA president Thabo Mvuyelwa Mbeki, wrote in one column, “leading to a flood of poor people into South Africa, which has led to conflicts between South Africa’s poor and foreign African migrants. . . . Most of our crime is committed by non-South Africans. . . . Remove the legal problem and you solve most of the crime problem.”
While the analysis by Mbeki failed to note that crime in SA is a race problem, his column drew no denunciations from the West.
What has happened is that the Western elites have refused to admit that their experiment in SA has failed. The country is largely without power, its export-driven mining economy is failing as Chinese industrialization, its biggest market, declines, and its persecuted white farmers are increasingly unable to feed the country’s millions of unemployed blacks. But to admit this would be to admit that apartheid was right, and that African blacks are incapable of governing a modern nation.
This issue takes on particular importance in the context of black-on-white racial violence that the media and President Barack Hussein Obama are instigating across the United States. Faced with a failing economy and with declining standards of living, the Obama administration, in alliance with both political parties, has launched a massive campaign of physical and cultural genocide against American whites. White people have been subjected to black mob violence in most American cities and this mob violence has been protected and encouraged by federal “law enforcement” agencies.
The main difference between the U.S. and SA, however, is that the U.S. is 12% black and SA is 88% black. Thus, in the U.S., black rioters represent a minority given importance only through their alliance with the state.
A pervasive theory is that South African officials, trying to hide their economy’s failure, likely orchestrated the riots. This in turn caused neighboring nations to close their borders to their own fleeing citizens.
Life expectancy in SA has declined from 65 to 53 since the ANC took power, and more than one-quarter of nongovernmental jobs in SA have disappeared.
Several South African commentators have raised the prospect of black-on-black civil war if immigration and economic failure continue.
