South Africa’s brand new president wants to confiscate land from white farmers
By Simon Black - February 21, 2018


If you’ve been following much international news, you’ve probably heard that, after literally years of scandal, abuse, and incompetence, South Africa’s president Jacob Zuma was finally forced to resign last week.

This is a big deal for South Africa.

The country has been suffering for nearly a decade under Zuma’s corruption.

And people are certainly hoping that the new President, Cyril Ramaphosa, will represent a positive, new chapter for South Africa.

Yesterday Ramaphosa addressed the nation’s parliament in Cape Town and made clear that his priority is to heal the divisions and injustice of the past, going all the way back to the original European colonists in the 1600s taking land from the indigenous tribes.

Ramaphosa called this “original sin”, and stated that he wants to see “the return of the land to the people from whom it was taken… to heal the divisions of the past.”

How does he plan on doing that?

Confiscation. Specifically– confiscation without compensation.

The expropriation of land without compensation is envisaged as one of the measures that we will use to accelerate redistribution of land to black South Africans.

Ramaphosa minced no words: he’s talking about taking land from white farmers and giving it to black South Africans.

Astonishingly, he followed up that statement by saying, “We will handle it in a way that is not going to damage our economy. . .”

Wow, what a relief. For a minute it sounded like South Africa wants to do what Zimbabwe did several years ago.

Oh wait a minute.

That’s exactly what Zimbabwe did.

Seeking to correct similar colonial and Apartheid-era injustices in his country, Zimbabwe’s president Robert Mugabe initiated a land redistribution program in 1999-2000.

Thousands of white-owned farms were confiscated by the government, and the farmers were forced out.

Bear in mind that Zimbabwe used to be known as the breadbasket of southern Africa. Zimbabwe’s world-class farmers were major food exporters to the rest of the region.

But within a few years of Mugabe’s land distribution, food production plummeted.

Without its professional, experienced farmers, the nation went from being an agricultural export powerhouse to having to rely on handouts from the United Nations’ World Food Programme.

Hyperinflation and a multi-decade depression followed.

If there’s an economic model in the world that you DON’T want to follow, it’s Zimbabwe.

And you’d think that the politicians in neighboring South Africa would know that.

They had a front-row seat to the effects of Mugabe’s land redistribution, not to mention they had to absorb millions of starving Zimbabwean refugees who came across their borders.

Yet this is precisely the policy that they want to adopt.

However you might feel about social justice, it seems pretty clear that copying Zimbabwe is a pretty stupid idea… and will only end up hurting the people they claim to be helping.

Yet the president claims that they want to initiate a land redistribution program that won’t impact the economy or South Africa’s food security.

Yeah sure. And I want to be the starting quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys next season.

But sadly you won’t see Simon Black throwing any touchdown passes anytime soon.

That’s because we have to live in a world with certain realities and limitations.

One of those realities is that land distribution, even if you believe the intentions to be noble, never works.

And of course, the most important reality is that anyone who willfully chooses to copy Zimbabwe’s economic model deserves to suffer the consequences of their stupidity.

    Didn’t Hitler do something similar about Jewish question? He said it was the Jews who had given Germany its troubles. ‘Fix’ that and everything will be smelling like roses. He probably thought that the Jews were THE original sin.

    Except for a few blowed up cities and some bodies strewn here and there, it sounds like a plan.

    Zimbabwe, Haiti? What is it with these people?

  • gomurr

    American students: “Socialism/communism didn’t work because they did it wrong.”
    South Africa: “Confiscation of white farmers land didn’t work in Zimbabwe because it was done wrong, but it will work in SA”.

    • Garnet Jules

      Why do say confiscation did not work? Perhaps not in the short term, but in the long term it is going to pay healthy dividends for the new land owners.

      • Rojelio Febrero

        Long term? 500 years?

        • Garnet Jules

          I don’t care if its 5000 years, once they eject you murderous savages.

          • gomurr

            When the “murderous savages” are gone, you may starve, but hey, your choice. What’s it feel like to be blinded by hate? Must be unsettling.

          • Garnet Jules

            Blinded by hate you say?? We never subjected your kind to Apartheid or called you Kaffir. Who are the ones really blinded by hate?? You can all just pack up and go back to Europe. We were feeding ourselves before came along and we will do it again.

          • gomurr

            Until people try to find real solutions, instead of retribution for every sin of the past, real or perceived, the world will not move forward. We all have a common enemy who has pulled the strings for centuries. They have corrupted our governments and dumbed down our people. They take off the top, leaving little for those at the bottom. While it’s easy to point to decades and centuries of injustice, and natural to want to make someone pay, at what point should you try to come together, or do we want to continue to play THEIR game of division? Only humanity as a whole can free itself. Know first who your true enemies are. You may believe them to be your neighbors who you deem more “privileged” or who have prospered far more than you, but most have done that by generations of hard work. Your real enemy is globalism and the globalists who control our governments, educational institutions, and banking systems. They want us to kill each other….they want division and destruction. They feed off the hate people have for one another. The people of the world must realize they hold the power over this cabal. They can feed it or destroy it. If we ever hope to live in a world where harmony prevails for all, where our children are free and safe, we must come together. Whether you are Black, White, Yellow, Red, or Brown, we have all been duped and are pawns in their game of domination until we decide to stop it and move beyond mistakes of the past. God bless you, my friend.

          • Garnet Jules

            You whites were supporting the same globalists just a few decades ago when they were plundering the other nations. While the IMF and the World Bank were destroying African, Asian and Latin American countries with “Structural Adjustment” you guys did not see them as a problem as long as your countries prospered. The US and European militaries have spilled oceans of blood just to support the greed of these capitalists and to maintain your standard of living. They also fed your egos, making you believe that you were better than every one else, when the truth was you were just heavily armed pirates. Now that they have turned on you, selling you out to China you are complaining about them. We blacks just want to be left alone, the globalists are now your problem. It is the yellow, red and brown countries that need to band together to stand against these greedy capitalists just as China is doing now. Trying to unite with Whites is almost hopeless because most of you are still high on White Supremacy.

          • gomurr

            You may speak to your own beliefs, but even today, many “whites” aren’t even aware of the goals of the globalists. They are goals I, and many others, do not now, and never have supported. You can group us all together as “you whites” of “white supremacists” if you like, but it makes you no different than those you hate, and your own corrupt leaders are just as greedy and self serving. I agree they have wreaked destruction on the world, and in our ignorance we let it happen, but no one can change the past. As long as people judge each other by skin color, nothing will ever change. You have people on your own continent waging mass atrocities among others who share the same skin color. You can’t blame whitey for all of your problems, much as you would like to. You, and everyone else has benefited from many contributions to the world by white people. Just as I can not walk in your shoes, you cannot walk in mine. If you want to continue down the road of blame and destruction, I can only wish you well.

          • Garnet Jules

            The benefits that you speak of are relative. I agree that you whites have pursued technology like no other civilization has before them. But to conclude that the benefits of technology has outweighed the problems that have come along with it is disingenuous. The results of the rampant pursuit of technology has literally turned the planet into a sewer, destroying the environment through greed and mass plunder. I would much prefer a simpler lifestyle with better quality air, food, water etal.

          • gomurr

            I, too, wish for a simpler world, where everyone has those things, but as long as hearts hold hate and vengeance for things that cannot be undone, we will remain in the grip of the greedy and evil. Only human consciousness and an open heart can change this world. That is just a fact.

          • Garnet Jules

            And by the way, I do not hate Whites. What I hate is the inferiority complex that most whites continue to project onto blacks. The narrative of the African failed state is similar to the rationale that whites used to justify their brutal exploitation of their black slaves. By claiming that blacks are incapable of governing themselves they use that as an excuse for their plunder of the continent. You don’t have to look to far to see how this propaganda has infected the majority of white minds….just read through some of these comments and you will see.

          • gomurr

            I cannot argue your points. There is no atoning for the past. We only need to look to see the damage the propaganda to control people’s mind has done. As I said, I can only hope for a new awareness in people. In the end, the majority of people on this planet all want the same thing… be able to live a decent life, and provide for themselves and their families, to know their children are healthy and safe, and be surrounded by people you love. I hope someday this will be a reality.

      • gomurr

        After Zimbabwe/Rhodesia confiscated the farms from the white farmers, they went from being a breadbasket, with surplus to export, to being on the breadline, with a food shortage, dependent on aid. The new owners really weren’t interested in learning to farm the land. Now they’re inviting them (white farmers) back. Do you think it’s a simple thing to just replace experienced farmers with people who may not have the experience, knowledge, or inclination, and expect the same results as you had with people whose families have been doing it for 400 years? How long do you expect people to wait for food? 5 years? 10? More? Is the solution to just confiscate the land because the farmers are white necessarily a good one for the country? Still, displacing them is better than slaughtering them, but it’s always a good thing to think these things through carefully. The results are not always what we hope they will be.

  • Kim Chul Soo

      Dont you find it strange that they’re making EXACTLY the same stupid mistake mugabe made when he kicked out the white farmers, it ended in disaster ! And turned the bread basket of Africa into the basket case of Africa. Theres something else afoot here.

      Why is he targeting small independent ie true capitalist “White farmers” on small plots of land, but wont touch or even talk about confiscating the real wealth ie the corporate “crypto communist” Gold and Diamond industry in south Africa, such as De Beers group which is Jewish own and who don’t consider themselves white by the way, the same people who fund groups like black lives matter and constantly push white guilt and race division through the media they own ? This illogical stunt by Cyril Ramaphosa would play right into such propaganda would it not ? its not as if we haven’t seen this exact same pattern in the “News” before is it.

That most are black is also a well known fact – racism personified.

    Excellent News. There will be a few years of painful adjustment but it will be well worth it. It is better to live a peasant’s life while having your own land, than to have a few racist Caucasoids dominate everything. There is no way the Caucasoids can crash the economy like they did in Zimbabwe because in addition to owning all the land, they also control all the mines and other important parts of the economy. So first, take back the land and then proceed to the other industries until you chase them all out.

    When the first ¨whites¨ (the Dutch) came into South Africa, there where no ¨blacks¨, there were only the Bosjesman (no whites, no blacks) … later came the Zulus and the Xhose down from the north, who used the Bosjesman as their slaves …

    You can’t change TNB. White South Africans should just leave and let nature take its course.

  • Varangian Guard

    The farms they confiscate will go the way of the cities that turned over populations in the USA. Productivity will discontinue, corruption will become the rule and anything good will cease.
    Those with integrity will try to make it work but ultimately you can’t buck city hall when it comes a culture.
    South Africa is certainly one locale that benefits from the diversity when it is allowed to flourish, at least with respect to an Economic standpoint.
    Consider it gentrification of the agricultural network.

    • Garnet Jules

      Get out of Africa and go back to Caucasus Mountains. Africa will be just fine without you. You can keep belching all those LIES about African failed states while the truth is yours are crumbling around you with tens of trillions in debt.

      You should be worrying about the Asians whose long term goal is to destroy you and repay you for the 100 years of shame. Unlike blacks, they are not the forgiving type.

      • Varangian Guard

        HISTORY DOESN’T LIE……….The internal struggles of tin pot dictators one after another over the entire continent is enough fairy tale for all of us. They are not forgiving to one another as is readily and regularly demonstrated.

        • Garnet Jules

          Those tin pot dictators are the result of your CIA, MI6 and Mossad assasinations of good leaders like Patrice Lumumba and countless others and the installation of puppet regimes so you could continue your plunder of our natural resources. We blacks are not stupid you know…it is just that we could do little to nothing about it. But the African nations have joined ranks via the African Union and they are chasing you Caucs out little by little….This is Africa since they have been dealing with the Chinese who by the way actually pay them for their natural resources.

          So you could continue all your fairy tale lies about African failed states while they quietly rise above you.

          • Number 6

            If the Chinese are paying them for their resources then why are Africans still living in “Relative” poverty who are the Chinese paying exactly ? And you keep blaming “White” people its not us, Im not rolling in African gold and neither are the billion or so white people on this planet, we are being played every bit as much as Africans. You seem vitriolic about white farmers having their farms confiscated and yet you say the biggest theft namely reclaiming natural resources can come latter. I’d say thats priority number one, wouldn’t you ? and taking land off white farmers who WORK the land to produce a renewable product, (your fellow south Africans) shouldn’t even be in consideration.

            Because heres whats going to happen Zionist “Minion” Cyril Ramaphosa like Zionist “Minion” Robert Mugabe before him is going to steal the land off the farmers, he’s then not going to put competent black farmers on that land (of which there are many) he’s going to put a bunch of incompetent thugs on that land, who are going to let it fall into decay, food shortages will ensue countless black Africans will die of starvation and then a large Jewish corporation is going to step in (for the good of the people) and claim ownership of all that land and have a monopoly over the worlds food supply. And all the while they’ll have Black people blaming white people and white people blaming black people and meanwhile the real culprits the self proclaimed “chosen people” who don’t consider themselves to be white by the way, will be playing the hero / victim and laughing all the way to the bank with both black and white peoples Property !

            Stop being played your blaming the wrong people ! and all the while your doing that your not winning any allies, which you will need if you want good to prevail !

          • Garnet Jules

            As the great Henrik Clarke said “Black people have no friends in this world”… whether it is you Caucasians, the Zionists…the are all the same when it comes to Blacks. It wasn’t the Jews alone who were practicing Apartheid, or Jim Crow. It wasn’t the Jews who murdered the indigenous Africans and colonized and took their land. It was not the Jews who murdered 77 miilion Indians. It was your kind that did all those things. And they (the Jews) are Caucasians just like you are. In the meantime we blacks need to go where we get the best deal. You were taking the resources for free by starting conflicts…the Chinese are paying cash for it…So which one would you choose.

          • Number 6

            Oh Im sure my friends who are black would be over the moon to discover that they have no friends, They do have friends and your not one of them !

            And I like the way you insist it wasn’t the Jews who did all those things, theres a very clearly defined pattern when it comes to the kind of race bating division that your currently engaged in, “its the whites” (Jews are innocent they are our friends) “its the blacks” (jews are innocent they are our friends) hmmmmmm I wonder why that would be ?

            And Heres a clue its the Dutch east india company which perpetrated most of those crimes (which are exaggerated by the way, how do you think they calculated that number ? ) it was dutch jews who owned all the ships and all the trading ports and it was dutch Jews who funded Oliver cromwell in his “Invasion” of Britain, who were then enslaved just like Africa was then enslaved. White people were propagandised into thinking Black people were all savage cannibals, Jewish printing presses did that not white people, and now black people are being propagandised into thinking white people are evil, so stealing the land they have cultivated is justified. Its the same way they’ve always propagandise everyone to go to war, vilify the other side, its the oldest trick in the book how have you not figured that out yet ?

          • Garnet Jules

   summary…what makes you so different to the Jews? As far as I am concerned you are one and the same. Even if the Jews were behind those things it was you Caucasians that gladly bought into all of it. You are such a bunch of hypocrites. You are only complaining about the Jews now because you realize that they have sold your asses out. Why didn’t you protest when they were plundering the so called third world nations using the IMF and the World Bank? Why didn’t you complain when they were using the CIA and the US military to spill oceans of blood around the world in the name of capitalism? Why didn’t you complain when they were planting crack cocaine in the black ghettos? You didn’t complain in fact you gladly bought into the whole black inferiority nonsense that they were feeding you. Now some of you with half a brain are now beginning to realise that you were being fooled all along. When you should have stood shoulder to shoulder with blacks for justice, human rights, fairness and equity you were fighting against them thinking they were the enemy. Now you have suddenly woken up to see who your true enemy is but it is too late for you. They have already wrecked your economies and filled you to the brim with homosexuality.

          • Number 6

            When are you going to get the idea that its your brain and not your skin pigmentation which is responsible for cognitive thought ? And that there are many shades not just black and white that is demonstrably a Jewish construct, Jews are khazars which is Southern Russia / Turkey so not Aryans Northern Europeans, which is what you seem to fixated on.

            And where was I ? I wasn’t even born ! but even if I was how do you know if I was (or any other “white” people) were complaining about the actions of the Jewish controlled IMF and World Bank, because I can tell you they were complaining, but of course you’ve got all your information from the jewish controlled media, besides as Ive clearly stated when someone is feeding you false information, and you think your actually helping the poor and oppressed, why wouldn’t you let the IMF get on with “helping people” In the same way your praising Cyril Ramaphosa for his racism (which you don’t consider racist) are you going to hang everyone (including yourself) for falling for scams ? How very convenient for the con artists, they get off scott free and the victim gets executed for crimes against himself.

            And I like the way you slag off capitalism, everyones RIGHT to keep the money they earn ! So presumably your a communist, you do realise thats a Jewish creation Right ? Karl Marx was jewish, Jews funded the Russian revolution and brutally murdered over 60 million WHITE Russians Christians. Communism is neo feudalism, keep the poor poor and in their place, oh and they created feudalism too by the way they were tax advisors to the kings of Europe when they imposed the feudal system ON WHITE PEOPLE ! (Jews had special dispensation) long before the Khazars / jews shipped all the black African Slaves to America, (jews owned all the ships and all the plantations by the way) And to fulfil their race war, Jewish supremacist prophesy, the plan is simple get Black and White in the same place, create division and get us to kill one another and then the Jews will inherit the world.

            You might like to try and read the books they follow such as the Talmud and understand what they believe, They are the “chosen people” and you and I are just Goy (cattle) as far as they are concerned, they just invented black and white for us to squabble over, its called divide and conquer !

          • Garnet Jules

            I am glad at least you are finally admitting that they are Khazars and not the Jews. You Europeans banded together with the Khazars (including the African tribes) who are also complicit…. in not just enslaving the true Israelites, but in ensuring that they forgot who they were as well. You and the Khazars together tried to wipe out all evidence of our history and in the process, the Khazars supplanted us and took on our identities. That is the reason you murdered slaves that you found reading any books. Don’t try telling me that you are innocent of all the problems, because you are not. There were never any Khazars in the K!an, they didn’t invent Jim Crow, they were not the ones that fought against desegregation tooth and nail. They were not the ones lynching black soldiers. Those were all your doings. And even today you are still peddling the Pseudo History of black non achievement. Both you and the Khazars are guilty as hell. But I have my popcorn and a cold drink at the ready as I see you finally at each others throats. But be warned…if you right wingers back them into a corner they will most likely lead you into civil war. Ado!f Hit!er tried to chase them out of Germany but he failed, and now they have Germany by the balls. They also have America by the balls as well. But China is damaging their power elsewhere in the world.

            Ahhh now were getting to the bottom of it heres the definition of the word “racist” The BELEIF that one race is superior to ALL others. Now the Jews are racist because they believe they are a race superior to all others “Gods chosen people” and youve just shown your a racist because you claim it is your race who are “Gods chosen people” and that identity was somehow stollen from you, what did they hypnotise you or something and made you forget everything including the idea you were Jewish ?

            Jewish plantation owners told the slaves if they didn’t rebel and were good slaves, they’d all get to the promised land, just bullshit to subdue them. Bullshit Jewish OWNED Hollywood still pushes today ! In fact its the whole point of the Bible and religious subsets there of, such as Christianity and Islam aka Judaism for the Goy

            And Im not a right winger ! only absolute MORONS believe in the left right paradigm, Im a Liberal capitalist I don’t believe one group of people, governmental or religious, has the right to impose authority over everyone else ! Its kind of the whole point of this website and why Im here, why are you here again ? oh thats right spreading racial and political division and hate, See I am innocent of spreading hate and division theres only one person here guilty of that and thats YOU !
