Anyone else been following the stories coming out of SA?
Farmland being expropriated by the SA government without compensation. Hundreds of displacement camps around many cities like Johannesburg
Looks as if civil war there is no longer an 'if' but more of a 'when'

The Rainbow nation has failed

Facking Mental!

Of course, not a peep from the MSM on this

It can categorically be called a white genocide. A few interesting reads:

The silence of the lamestream media is deafening. There is a very big problem with African governments, hence the mass-migration from African nations to Europe.

I remember reading this last year:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-41807642

In other words, the data doesn't exist to match the claims about any sort of a 'white genocide'. Not that this will stop the likes of Breitbart making such spurious claims.

Wouldn't surprise me if white farmers were a good bit more likely to be murdered than white folk elsewhere in the country, but that's not surprising given that law enforcement is going to be pretty sparse out in the sticks. A lot of the people getting killed on farms will be the black workers if what we've seen in Zimbabwe is any indication. No way of knowing without accurate data, of course, so the situation may be worse than I think.

That said, no doubt that the problems in South Africa have been a terrible disappointment after the euphoria of the transition from apartheid under Mandela. I think they did pretty well to avoid going all out looking for 'revenge' against the Afrikaaners after being treated as less than human for generations.

Same old story as from other developing nations - if you give corrupt kleptocrats power, things don't tend to turn out very well and Zuma was about as corrupt a kleptocrat as you can imagine. Let's hope he gets his just desserts now he's been booted out of office and charged. Will his replacement be any better? Well, he surely can't be much worse!

The left love to criticise the so called alt- media but unfortunately this is the only place you will get to hear about these story's, take yesterday for example a Scottish comedian was found guilty of a hate crime for training his dog to do a Nazi salute! and now he could well be jailed for up to a year when sentenced, and then last week we had the banning of consevatives from entering the UK on thought crimes, but yeah it's right not a peep in the MSN the Cultural Marxists are setting the snowflake agenda. Imagine if this was whites killing blacks the MSN would be all over it  the likes of CNN, BBC and the Guardian would be in orgasmic reporting overdrive.

Except, of course, the evidence simply doesn't exist that loads of white farmers are being killed. Did you even bother to read the link on the BBC which I posted? They are considered 'mainstream'.

The hate crime thing with the dog is bloody ridiculous on the surface, of course, which is why people such as Gervais and Baddiel are calling it out as such. I'd heard mention of some comedian being prosecuted for a poor taste joke but couldn't be bothered to search for it. Here's how the BBC ignored the story:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-43478925

The Independent ignored it as well:

https://www.independent.co.uk/.....kshire-a8265301.html

And The Telegraph:

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/03/20/youtube-user-convicted-hate-crime-pet-dogs-nazi-salutes/

Other members of the mainstream media who ignored the story by writing articles about it include The Sun, Express, Daily Heil, Evening Standard and all the Scottish newspapers, of course. Over in the US, the Washington Post ignored it by writing an article about it, too.

Seems to me that this Meechan bloke is a bit of a sharp object and the fact that he immediately went to a right-wing fake news merchant such as Alex Jones when first charge makes me wonder if his claims of innocence are actually true. Surely you'd got to the UK media and put your case there instead? I'd give him the benefit of the doubt, but the judge obviously didn't given the evidence available.

Yes good point the tabloids have spaces to fill but this pug story wasn't on any of the main news channels that I watch yesterday BBC, channel 4, SKY, accept RT news!

I read your link and it seems that there is no real concrete evidence to substantiate either way although I see regular footage that looks quite recent with white farmers being killed, the last one I've seen is of a white farmer who is dragged on to the road by a baying mob and kicked to death, with a concrete slab chucked on his head for good measures, why don't we see this footage on the MSN? Where is channel 4 news?

Sad to read

Just read a decent book on issues you have highlighted above.This has been brewing for a while.Sadly though Mugabe initially was a force for good in the country before things went sour ?

Mugabe is in Zimbabwe, not South Africa.
