Why are Afrikaner farmers being murdered in South Africa?

by Leon Parkin & Gregory H. Stanton, President – Genocide Watch
14 August 2012The following report is the result of an intensive personal inquiry in South Africa conducted July 23 -27, 2012. 

Deliberate inaction of the South African Government has weakened rural security structures, facilitating Afrikaner farm murders, in order to terrorize white farmers into vacating their farms, advancing the ANC/S. A. Communist Party’s New Democratic Revolution (NDR.)

The South African Government for the last 18 years has adopted a policy of deliberate government abolition and disarmament of rural Commandos run by farmers themselves for their own self-defense.  The policy has resulted in a four-fold increase in the murder rate of Afrikaner commercial farmers.  This policy is aimed at forced displacement through terror.  It advances the goals of the South African Communist Party’s New Democratic Revolution (NPR), which aims at nationalization of all private farmland, mines, and industry in South Africa.  Disarmament, coupled with Government removal of security structures to protect the White victim group, follows public dehumanization of the victims, and facilitates their forced displacement and gradual genocide.

Afrikaner farm owners are being murdered at a rate four times the murder rate of other South Africans, including Black farm owners. Their families are also subjected to extremely high crime rates, including murder, rape, mutilation and torture of the victims. South African police fail to investigate or solve many of these murders, which are carried out by organized gangs, often armed with weapons that police have previously confiscated.  The racial character of the killing is covered up by a SA government order prohibiting police from reporting murders by race.  Instead the crisis is denied and the murders are dismissed as ordinary crime, ignoring the frequent mutilation of the victims’ bodies, a sure sign that these are hate crimes.

However, independent researchers have compiled accurate statistics demonstrating convincingly that murders among White farm owners occur at a rate of 97 per 100,000 per year, compared to 31 per 100,000 per year in the entire South African population, making the murder rate of White SA farmers one of the highest murder rates in the world.

Incitement to genocide is a crime under the International Convention for the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, to which South Africa is a state-party.

The ANC government has promoted hate speech that constitutes “incitement to genocide.”  The President of the ANC Youth League, Julius Malema, revived the “Kill the Boer, Kill the Farmer” hate song at ANC rallies, until it was declared to be hate speech by a South African judge, and Malema was enjoined from singing it.  For other reasons, Malema was later removed as ANCYL President.  His followers continue to sing the hate song, and the Deputy President of the ANCYL has called for “war,” against “white settlers.”

After the judge’s injunction to halt singing of the hate song, even the President of South Africa, ANC leader Jacob Zuma, himself, began to sing the “Shoot the Boer” song.  Since Zuma began to sing the hate song on 12 January 2012, murders of White farmers increased every month through April 2012, the last month for which there are confirmed figures.

There is thus strong circumstantial evidence of government support for the campaign of forced displacement and atrocities against White farmers and their families.  There is direct evidence of SA government incitement to genocide.

Forced displacement from their farms has inflicted on the Afrikaner ethnic group conditions of life calculated to bring about its complete or partial physical destruction, an act of genocide also prohibited by the Genocide Convention.

High-ranking ANC government officials who continuously refer to Whites as “settlers” and “colonialists of a special type” are using racial epithets in a campaign of state-sponsored dehumanization of the White population as a whole.  They sanction gang-organized hate crimes against Whites, with the goal of terrorizing Whites through fear of genocidal annihilation.

What is dehumanization?

The process of dehumanization has the effect of numbing and decommissioning the moral sentiments of the perpetrator group.  Polarization creates the “us vs. them” mentality, in SA the “Indigenous Black People” group versus the “White Settler Colonialist” group.

ANC leaders publicly incite followers using racial epithets.  By dehumanizing the White victim group, members of the perpetrator group exclude the victim group from their circle of moral obligation not to kill its members.  Dehumanization is the systematic, organized strategy of leaders to remove the inherent natural human restraints of people not to murder, rape, or torture other human beings.  Taking the life of a dehumanized person becomes of no greater consequence than crushing an insect, slaughtering an animal, or killing a pest.

The ANC denies its genocidal intentions.  But the South African Communist Party is more open about its plan to drive Whites out of South Africa. Gugile Nkwinti, South Africa’s Minister of Rural Development and Land Reform has declared that all “colonial struggles are about two things: ‘repossession of the land and the centrality of the indigenous population.’” Mister Nkwinti is confirming the goals of the South African Communist Party’s New Democratic Revolution (NDR) and stating that the colonial struggle is not yet over in post-1994 South Africa.  He is saying that Whites are unwelcome “settler colonialists” with no role to play in South Africa’s future.

The Transvaal Agricultural Union, Freedom Front, Democratic Alliance, IFP, Afriforum and numerous other organizations have on a regular basis called for the South African Government to declare farm murders and rural policing a South African government priority.   The President, who should be the guardian of the constitutional rights of all the people, has deliberately ignored these calls for action.

Former President F. W. De Klerk, on 25 July 2012 during the De Klerk Foundation’s Crossroads conference correctly accused the current generation of ANC leaders of cynically manipulating racial sensitivities for political ends.  In our analysis, the current ANC leadership also publicly uses incitement to genocide with the long-term goal of forcibly driving out or annihilating the White population from South Africa.

This report has explained the rationale for the deliberate inaction of South African government functionaries to prevent, prosecute, or stop the murders of Afrikaner farmers.  As a group, Afrikaner farmers stand in the way of the South African Communist Party’s goal to implement their Marxist/Leninist/Stalinist New Democratic Revolution and specifically the confiscation of all rural land belonging to White Afrikaner farmers.

Genocide Watch is moving South Africa back to Stage 6, the Preparation stage in the genocidal process.

        Easy for you to say. We have nowhere to go to. Most of us were born here and this is my land. The blacks are also settlers from the north.

        Very easy to say Ray – Repatriate to where? The majority of White South Africans can claim no other country as home except for South Africa and this is as it should be. Black South Africans can trace their ancestors to the North (if they choose to that is), so why should we leave? Shouldn’t they also think about leaving and returning whence they came!

    People open your eyes, it’s wonderfull that organizations like these have empathy for us and publish articles like this but the fact of the matter is NO ONE is going to come and help us, we are in this alone. We were lied to by FW and Nelson Mandela and the whole world saw the transformation happening and just stood by watching people being slaughtered by the communist idealist ANC government.

      Sadly, you are right.
      Whereas the Apartheid was covered relentlessly in the West……the Boer genocide isnt making a ripple in the Western media.
      You see, this doesnt fit the “progressive” socialist media narrative of what is “wrong” with the world.
      White killing Black will make front page news…..Black killing White is hardly mentioned, even if it is….it quickly buried.

      Organize yourselves, you are alone…..there are some of us who are aware and are trying to raise awareness……but even so….there are very few in the western press that have a sympathetic ear.
      Keep networking and speaking out……the more contacts you make the better your chances are.

    Uneducated stupid people more commonly known as communists think its their right to take human life and property of any kind. There is also no proper judicial system in this country. Hence, this genocide. However, for example my family’s farm was bought 61 years ago through correct channels. There was 2 old houses and barren land. There was no water, electricity, fencing or stores etc. Mind you the lands were not even worked. These have since been built etc. If these communists do take over a farm it goes to ruin because farming is a trade learned mainly through experience down the generations and not from a book only. Farming is working with nature and nature is governed by God not humans.

  9. I’m continually lost for words when struck with the dire reality of hate crimes perpetrated. by blacks against Afrikaner farmers and people. The murderous ANC is responsible for the genocide against whites. It is common knowledge the European settlers build SA and it is now regressing towards a third world hellhole due hate-filled socialist rule and destructive policies.

    I just wanted to let Afrikaner people know that I am with you, in spirit and prayers during these difficult times. You deserve much better than your current situation. May the good people of the world hear your cry and act. Enough is enough.

      Hi Nick
      So true – sad thing is that the only people that can help us now are us. The rest of the world is turning a blind eye on what is happening here. White people in SA keep on believing and hoping things will get better but they will not. The government and police here are not going to protect us. They hardly protect their own. The only thing left to do is for white people is to arm themselves and to be ready when it comes your way, because it most certainly will.

    We as south africans must take the first step towards our freedom! We need to stand together and stop the murders and we need the world to know what sa is about and what is happening to our people. But we need to take the first step on our own! En ons kan!

    I am in the U.S. It is only by chance that I came across some articles on the genocide that is happening in S.A. I want to help but what can I do? No media outlet in our country is covering this, AT ALL. It is probably the same in all Western countries. I do not know why. Many people know there is something wrong with our media but no one knows who is controlling or why. I am sorry to say that no foreign country is going to come to the aid of whites in South Africa because no one knows what is going on, and our media is so biased even if they did cover it they would sympathize with the blacks as they worship Mandela. I am not lying. The point is, if your lives are in danger and your government does not come to your aid then you will have to form your own armies or flee. If you want to come to the U.S. do so. Our immigration policy is so lax the government is about to grant citizenship to millions of illegals just for the heck of it. So consider this an invitation. Pretend to take a vacation to Mexico, cross the border into the U.S. and that’s all you need to do. Don’t worry about paperwork. Just do what the Mexicans do, which is whatever they want.
