Donald R. Morris’s epic tome, The Washing of the Spears: The Rise and Fall of the Zulu Nation, is the all-time PIG (Politically Incorrect Guide) to Zulu history. In it, Morris notes correctly that the Bantu, like the Boers, were not indigenous to South Africa. They “dribbled south” from some “reservoir in the limitless north,”... Read More

Rainbow Nation shows its colors
South Africa is an ongoing topic of concern among the dissident right, which views it as a cautionary tale about the dangers of becoming a minority in your own country. The Rainbow Nation has been largely ignored by the mainstream media since the end of apartheid, but last year Donald Trump scandalized the global establishment... Read More
Identity Politics is now the defining characteristic of the liberal/progressive/left and the political ideology of the Democratic Party. It is an ideology of hatred preached against people whose skin is white. Identity Politics is completely inconsistent with a multicultural society. The West used economic pressure to force South Africa to turn over the government to... Read More

Monomaniacal Westerners—they have one thing on their minds: it begins with an “R”—have come to think and speak of apartheid as a theory of white supremacy. It was not. The policy of “separate development,” as it was admittedly euphemized, was not a theory of racial supremacy, but a strategy for survival. But first: To perceive... Read More

In a recent translation of Tacitus’ Annals, a question was raised as to whether “there were any ‘nations’ in antiquity other than the Jews.” Upon reflection, one suspects that the same question can be posed about the Afrikaners in the modern era. In fact, in April of 2009, former South African President Jacob Zuma infuriated... Read More

He who believes he has a right to another man’s property ought to produce proof that he is its rightful owner. “As the old legal adage goes, ‘Possession is nine-tenths of the law,’ as it is the best evidence in our uncertain world of legitimate title. The burden of proof rests squarely with the person... Read More

Once upon a time there were two politicians. One had the power to give media and political elites goosebumps. Still does. The other causes the same dogs to raise their hackles. The first is Barack Hussein Obama; the second Vladimir Putin. The same gilded elites who choose our villains and victims for us have decided... Read More

(But Trump Can Take Executive Action NOW)
outh Africa’s white farmers have their collective heads on the block following the vote by the country’s parliament to expropriate their land without compensation. The plan’s main proponent, Julius Malema of the Economic Freedom Fighters party, says white farmers are “criminals” who must be driven off the land. Make no mistake, this is shorthand for...

Up until, or on the day, a predictable calamity unfolds in South Africa, you still find Western Media insisting that, No, there's no racial component to the butchering of thousands of white rural folks in ways that would make Shaka Zulu proud. No, the mutilated, tortured, white bodies of Boer and British men, women and... Read More

READERS were angry. I had rained on their parade by venturing that the appointment of a new party boss to head South-Africa's dominant party was an insignificant game of musical chairs. But perhaps it is I who should have been annoyed. Nobody with a modicum of cerebral agility should see in the new South-African Strong... Read More

On November 21, after 37 years in power, Zimbabwe's dictator, Robert Mugabe, resigned in infamy. By contrast, the late South African leader, Nelson Mandela, was revered in the West. His successor, Thabo Mbeki, was well-respected. Yet over the decades, both Mandela and Mbeki lent their unqualified support to Mugabe. When the baton was passed from... Read More

Not so long ago, mere mention of the deliberate murder of whites in South Africa—country folk and commercial farmers, in particular—was called "racist." "Raaacist!" the media collective brayed when candidate Trump retweeted a related "white genocide" hashtag. It's still "racist" to suggest that the butchering of these whites, almost daily, in ways that beggar belief,... Read More
Let’s Admit Some White Refugees!
The big issue in Europe is the ongoing invasion from Africa and the Middle East. If G-20 protestors were going to take to the streets and throw Molotov cocktails last weekend, THAT should have been their target. THAT’S the existential threat, the threat to Europe’s future–the future these millennials will have to live in. But... Read More

Yes, it has happened. A mere 23 years after the 1994 transition, in South Africa, to raw ripe democracy, six years following the publication of a wide-ranging analysis of that catastrophe, Into the Cannibal's Pot: Lessons for America from Post-Apartheid South Africa, a Beltway libertarian think tank has convened to address the problem that is...

Farming in South Africa is the most dangerous occupation in the world. Farmers there suffer more murders per-capita than any other community on earth outside a war zone. Since the dawn of democracy in the country, farming South Africa has been slaughtered by black South Africans in ways that would do Shaka Zulu[*] proud. The... Read More

The death of Nelson Mandela and the refusal of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to attend the funeral serve as a reminder of the somewhat tortuous relationship between South Africa and Israel as well as a notorious but little known spying case involving both nations and the Israel Lobby’s Anti-Defamation League (ADL) in the 1990s....

The “Black Jesus.” That’s what the late Nelson Mandela was called by many South Africans, who greeted his death last week with intense national mourning. Mandela was a great man, and great leader. But he was no Jesus. I rather call him “mahatma,” meaning great spirit, the Hindu title conferred upon Gandhi. Like Gandhi, Mandela,... Read More
"Apartheid is an affront to human rights and human dignity. Normal and friendly relations cannot exist between the United States and South Africa until it becomes a dead policy. Americans are of one mind and one heart on this issue." So said Ronald Reagan in his 1986 message to Congress vetoing the "sweeping and punitive... Read More
When President Bush made his grand tour of Africa last year, he had little to say about the land seizures and violent assaults on white farmers that the government of Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe has carried out, nor did he insist that South Africa's president Thabo Mbeki do anything about it. "I don't have any intention... Read More
The tenth anniversary of the Rwandan genocide is upon us this week, and some predict yet another African genocide is about to unfold in Sudan. In South Africa, however, where wicked white supremacy was dismantled (also a decade ago) and black majority rule established, all is happiness, a veritable cakewalk to utopia, according to neo-conservative...

You don't hear much about South Africa these days, unless it's about all the trouble that country's white people are causing—or whatever white people remain there. Since the "apartheid system" was dismantled in 1994 and a "black majority democracy" "liberated" the country, more and more whites leave—mainly because so many have been murdered by black...

Among the contributions to civilization of South Africa since the end of "apartheid" – the common shorthand for white rule - is the phenomenon known as "child rape." You really have to hand it to the South Africans. No other nation seems to have invented this particular kind of atrocity before, and in the country... Read More
While the multiracial democracy of Zimbabwe is experiencing a virtual breakdown because black mobs, with government encouragement, are seizing white-owned farm lands without compensation to their legal owners, the African continent's other multiracial democracy in South Africa is sporting its own crisis over the supposed "racism" of the country's newspapers. Now the black-controlled government is... Read More
Letter to the Editor
In Tom Wicker’s Jan. 13 column, the Rev. Allan Boesak was characterized as a white South African champion of black rights, recently jailed for his efforts. This is incorrect. Mr. Boesak, a founder of the United Democratic Front, is actually a colored (mixed-race) South African. This is significant because it underscores the South African Government’s... Read More
