Dangers of Big Government: State Sponsored Genocide

According to the UN, the legal definition of genocide is defined as any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.

South Africa has always had a troubling history with government over-reach and not much has really changed.  Just a few months ago Jacob Zuma, the President of South Africa called on parliament to change South Africa’s constitution to allow the government to take land from South Africa’s white population without compensation.




Jacob Zuma isn’t alone with these feelings either, a survey conducted in 2013 found at least 38% of South African Youth agree with Economic Freedom Fighters’ key policies will benefit them. The Economic Freedom Fighters are a socialist political party who originally crafted the policy of seizing white owned land without compensation. Not only do they want to seize white owned land, they want to redistribute it to the black population.

“We are not chasing the whites away. We are saying you have too much land. We want you here in South Africa, but 80 percent of the land belongs to us.” – Julius Malema leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters

Jacob Zuma joining the Economic Freedom Fighters on this position officially puts the biggest and third biggest party in South Africa in an agreement that white south africans do not deserve to own land in South Africa and their property should be confiscated without compensation. Sadly, South Africa appears to be taking a turn for the worst.

These anti-white policies come after a series of farm attacks that Genocide Watch, an international organization that exists to prevent genocide and is the coordinating organization of the International Alliance to End Genocide (IAEG) estimates that 3000 South African whites have been killed by over the last decade.

Genocide Watch in 2012 moved South Africa to stage 6 of 8 in the genocidal process due to increasing power of Julius Malema of the Economic Freedom Fighters and now with Jacob Zuma taking the stage as well, the future of whites in South Africa is very uncertain and possibly grim. Stage 6 of the genocidal process is called Preparation as victims are identified and separated out because of their ethnic or religious identity. Their property is seized and they are often segregated into ghettos, prisons or concentration camps.

Camps of this nature already exist in South Africa as “white squatter camps” filled with working class white people live below the poverty line. These camps have little to no food, no running water and no electricity as well. Daily Mail also reports that hospitals refuse residents of these camps and residents are regularly denied work from potential employers at interviews.

Nothing about this situation is desirable, the socialists and marxists of South Africa have driven the country into a pit of chaos and near genocide of the white population of the country. Several petitions have went around in the past to petition governments to take in South African whites before the situation worsens but have mostly remained unsuccessful. There is currently a live petition to have the Australian government accept persecuted whites in South Africa into Australia. You can find that petition here.
