The South African professional services provider: an endangered species

If you are a resident of South Africa, in the IT, auditing or legal industry and you're not experiencing the beginnings of panic at present, you're clearly not reading the news. Professionals who provide services on a time and materials basis' livelihoods are being threatened.

The true power behind the ANC regime, the odious and unholy alliance of the communists and trades union, have succeeded in convincing the government to ban labour brokers. Although one wouldn't say so, judging by its extremely arrogant and militant rhetoric, Cosatu is actually an organization in decline. Its membership is falling. Of course Cosatu does not like labour brokers, because they prevent labourers becoming unionised and therefore contribute to its incipient decline.

The banning of labour brokers will have a profound effect on the IT industry in South Africa. Many organizations cannot afford to keep expensive IT personnel on their payroll, especially if they require ad-hoc and relatively short-term IT projects. They would typically then approach an outsourcing company such as Dimension Data or Business Connection (BCX) to provide them with contract IT skills. This will however become illegal in terms of the proposed new legislation.

The impact on the IT industry will be severe. Companies like Paracon and Business Connection will have to either scale down radically or shut up shop altogether. They will no longer be able to provide contract IT workers to for example the Receiver of Revenue like Paracon does at present. In all probability, departments and organizations requiring IT skills will need to look offshore, for example at Indian companies. The Receiver of Revenue will have to farm out its IT requirements to for example Indian companies like Tata or Wipro.

Although Wipro and Tata will be happy to take on South African IT business, the picture is much less rosy for tens of thousands of South African IT workers presently working for companies like Paracon, who will necessarily have to find other employment. It is a safe bet that many of these would emigrate. IT professionals are mobile individuals, who will find work overseas, thereby exacerbating the brain drain. Not only the employees of the likes of Paracon but also others, to whom permanent employment with one employer seems like an unchallenging option, will look for greener pastures.

Not only would this exacerbate the brain drain, but it would also lose the tax revenue these individuals generate. How many recipients of child grants and other social benefits are being funded by each IT professional's personal income, fuel and sales taxes? If their work was done in Calcutta or Mumbai, this tax income would be lost and the profits would revert to India.

In so doing, Cosatu is causing immense harm to not only South Africa's skills pool, but also to the poor in South Africa. This argument is however unlikely to make any impact whatsoever on the greedy and malicious trades union, whose primary mission is to enrich themselves.

We are witnessing yet another example of the continuing destruction of the South African economy by the Cosatu parasites.

Some more information on "Saint Mandela"

If you don't want your day spoiled by right-wing lies and propaganda, for heaven's sake and your own safety don't read this article that clasts the saint and icon Mandela.

Rather read St Mandela's wonderfully uplifting tract "How to be a good communist" here. (Please just ignore the introductory section in which a horrible racist dares to question The Great Man's friendship with the likes of other fine examples of democrats like Fidel Castro.)

The whole trial and jail sentence was also just so, you know, UNFAIR. Below is the list of unreasonable charges laid against St Mandela and his good-natured and harmless friends during the Rivonia Treason Trial by the previous racist regime. As you can see, they were clearly only gathering supplies for a children's party - the 210,000 hand grenades were surely only intended as a fireworks show. Nobody except a real racist would think otherwise.

• One count under the South African Suppression of Communism Act No. 44 of 1950, charging that the accused committed acts calculated to further the achievement of the objective of communism;
• One count of contravening the South African Criminal Law Act (1953), which prohibits any person from soliciting or receiving any money or articles for the purpose of achieving organized defiance of laws and
country; and
• Two counts of sabotage, committing or aiding or procuring the commission of the following acts:

1) The further recruitment of persons for instruction and training, both within and outside the Republic of South Africa, in:
(a) the preparation, manufacture and use of explosives—for the purpose of committing acts of violence and destruction in the aforesaid Republic, (the preparation and manufacture of explo- sives, according to evidence submitted, included 210,000 hand grenades, 48,000 anti-personnel mines, 1,500 time devices, 144 tons of ammonium nitrate, 21.6 tons of aluminum powder and a ton of black powder);
(b) the art of warfare, including guerrilla warfare, and military training generally for the purpose in the aforesaid Republic;
(ii) Further acts of violence and destruction, (this includes 193 counts of terrorism committed between 1961 and 1963);
(iii) Acts of guerrilla warfare in the aforesaid Republic;
(iv) Acts of assistance to military units of foreign countries when involving the aforesaid Republic;
(v) Acts of participation in a violent revolution in the aforesaid Republic, whereby the accused, injured, damaged, destroyed, rendered useless or unserviceable, put out of action, obstructed, with or endangered:
• (a) the health or safety of the public;
• (b) the maintenance of law and order;
• (c) the supply and distribution of light, power or fuel;
• (d) postal, telephone or telegraph installations;
• (e) the free movement of traffic on land; and
• (f) the property, movable or immovable, of other persons or of the state.

The real St. Mandela

Many newspapers are carrying front-page articles about St. Mandela's 91st birthday tomorrow. Instead of the fawning hagiographies, let's rather consider the real "achievements" of St. Mandela.

1. Mandela was so "oppressed" that he went to university became a lawyer. He was allowed to practice law with his partner, Oliver Tambo. This strangely happened in apartheid South Africa in 1953, in which it is routinely alleged blacks were denied proper education.

2. During the Rivonia trial Mandela was convicted of plotting to overthrow the previous government by means of military action. Had the plan succeeded, thousands of "freedom fighters" would have sown terror and mayhem in South Africa. Mandela was therefore far from an innocent pacifist and his jail sentence was nothing if not fully justified. It remains a mystery why Percy Yutar, the prosecutor, did not call for the death sentence, which would also have been justified given Mandela's treasonous intentions.

3. In 1961 he was one of the founders of Mkhonto we Sizwe - the "pricks (sorry "spears") of the nation", a murderous bunch of cowardly terrorist thugs, known mainly for their prowess at mowing down innocent civilians. As a military force, Mkhonto was however a complete joke, in spite of the so-called "Freedom Park's" memorial to them. Mkhonto failed to "liberate" one square centimeter of South African territory. Instead, nests of this infestation were routinely exterminated by the former SA Defence Force.

4. Mandela admits in his book The Long Walk To Freedom that he personally approved the Church Street bombing, in which 11 people died and more than 200 were injured. Most of them were innocent civilians.

5. He remained in jail because he refused to renounce violence. The previous government did offer to release him provided he renounced violence. Hardly Mother Theresa stuff.

6. After he came to power, his regime wasted no time in befriending rogue states like Libya and Cuba and imposing the state racism aimed at whites known as affirmative action and black economic empowerment.

Like Mohammad Atta and Carlos the Jackal, this person is no hero, no saint and definitely not worthy of our admiration.

The strange cult of the anti-hero

There have been many heroes throughout history; those whose unselfish and noble deeds have been an inspiration to others.

One example of a true hero was Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus, a Roman policitian. Cincinnatus was called upon to act as dictator in order to defeat an enemy, the Aequians. As soon as he succeeded in doing so, he resigned his from a position of absolute authority and returned to a simple life as a farmer.

It's hard to imagine any modern day politician doing likewise.

Many of the so-called heroes of the present day are clearly not in the same mould as Cincinnatus. We are rather faced with the cult of the worship of the anti-hero. The most recent example of the worship of an anti-hero was the unfounded hysteria accompanying the death of the suspected paedophile Michael Jackson.

Let's take another example of a so-called American hero, one who even has a public holiday in his honour. This so-called hero was not only someone who plagiarised his academic work, but also an adulterer and a womaniser. The FBI recorded him shouting: "I'm fucking for God!" while philandering. The night before he died, he cheated on his wife with not one but two different women.

Hardly the stuff heroes are made of, wouldn't you say, especially considering he was supposedly a man of God? The anti-hero I'm referring to above is Martin Luther King, somebody who is routinely exalted as some kind of role model. We're really scraping the bottom of the barrel if Dr King is seen as a hero to some.

South Africa has its own crop of anti-heroes. Many of them are so-called Struggle heroes or associated with the ANC. The sickening spectacle of the anti-hero and fraudster Tony Yengeni being escorted to prison to serve time for corruption will forever be a mark of shame on the odious ANC regime.

Other ANC anti-heroes abound. Winnie Mandela, a child murderer and convicted fraudster, is known as the "Mother of the Nation." Aboobaker Ismael, the cowardly murderer who planned the Church Street bombing that killed innocent civilians, was rewarded for his "heroism" with a senior position at the Reserve Bank.

Perhaps the most laughable example of the cult of the anti-hero is however the so-called "Chief Tshwane." Chief Tshwane (sic) was ostensibly a tribal chief in the area that is now called the city of Pretoria. According to the ANC city council, Tshwane (sic) "established" the "City of Tshwane" (sic.)

There is one slight problem with this fairy tale. There is no evidence that "Chief Tshwane" (sic) ever existed. There is speculation that the name is really derived from the local vernacular term for monkey – "tshwene." The river that flows through Pretoria is known as the Apies river (Afrikaans for "monkey") due to the large number of simians that populated its banks.

Furthermore, the modern-day city of Pretoria was in reality founded by the Voortrekker leader Andries Pretorius. There was certainly no bustling metropolis when Pretorius arrived on the site that is now Pretoria.

One of these actually existed and founded Pretoria. The other is a hero to the ANC regime.

The ANC regime, however, in its desperation to find somebody, anybody, to worship as a hero, did not let the facts (or lack thereof) stand in their way. It went to the ridiculous extreme of inventing a fictitious character and even built a statue to honour "Chief Tshwane" (sic), the so-called founder of Pretoria.

This sounds like Monty Python, but it's regrettably true. Can you imagine how bare your cupboard must be of real heroes that you have to go to the extreme of inventing one?

Perhaps we shouldn't sneer at those who view Martin Luther King, Michael Jackson, Winnie Mandela and even "Chief Tshwane" (sic) as heroes. It must be very depressing not having any real heroes to call your own.

You will be known by your friends, even in death

"White folks was [sic] in caves while we was building empires." (Racism and poor grammar.)

"We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it." (Homophobia.)

"...diamond merchants...pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house." (Anti-Semitism.)

The funeral of the so-called icon and full-time pedophile, Michael Jackson, is being led by the so-called reverend Al Sharpton, the source of the quotations above.

Isn't it ironic how the anti-hero Sharpton is leading the anti-hero Jackson's funeral service? But, then, everything is fine, seeing that both are / were of the correct skin colour (the deceased was born with the correct skin colour and spent his entire life trying to bleach it) and therefore by definition not capable of doing any wrong.

Kind of reminds one of the anti-hero Jeremiah Wright, somebody also associated with another famous personality.

What is the point of South Africa's Defence Force?

Most if not all countries have a defence force. Some, like the current United States armed forces, see action on a daily basis. Others, like the Swiss guards in the world's smallest country, the Vatican, have largely ceremonial duties.

South Africa had a very professional defence force prior to 1994. In spite of sanctions aimed at the previous government, it was the most formidable fighting force on the African continent that successfully fought the Cubans in Angola, in spite of the ANC regime's laughable propaganda to the contrary.

It was especially effective in terms of pest control, eradicating infestations of so-called ANC  "freedom fighters" (in reality a criminal rabble whose military prowess was limited to killing innocent civilians in cowardly bomb attacks) in neighbouring countries.

That was then, before the ANC regime "transformed" the armed forces.

Transformation in South African terms has a very clear and distinct meaning. In practice, it means exorcising any competent white individuals on an Afro-racist basis and replacing them with useless political cronies. One cannot however take the criminal rabble that constituted the so-called "liberation movement's army"  (sic) and expect these individuals to miraculously transform themselves into a professional defence force capable of managing and effectively using the billions of rands' worth of equipment procured during the utterly corrupt arms deal.

The result was both predictable and sad. South Africa's forces, the SANDF, are staffed by ageing soldiers. The younger members of the forces are riddled with HIV and often in no condition to fight. The older members should not be front line soldiers. As the opposition Democratic Alliance's shadow minister of defence puts it: "We have soldiers in barracks, not in the field; we have ships alongside, not at sea; and we have aircraft in hangers, not in the air. We have an army that is overstretched; a navy which is under stretched; and an air force with nothing to stretch."

The obvious question is not why the SANDF is in the state it is in – we all know that the twin evils transformation and the utter incompetence of the ANC regime are at fault. The question is rather: why do we have a defence force at all? Against whom do they "defend" us (sic)?

One of the main tasks of a defence force is to defend the sovereignty of a nation. In other words, the SANDF is there to keep South Africa safe from foreign threats. South Africa is however no longer sovereign. It has in reality been invaded by millions of illegal aliens, overrun by a veritable army of foreigners.

So much so that, as a proportion of its population, South Africa is a world leader in terms of its percentage of illegal aliens. Out of the 50-60 million people within the non-existent borders of the country, there are at least 10-15 million illegals. Between one in five and one in four people walking the streets of South Africa are part of the army of invaders that has already overrun South Africa.

The army is neither capable of nor interested in any semblance of border control. Enforcing South Africa's territorial integrity would, in any event, contradict the ANC regime's apparent policy of radical pan-Africanism, which gives free passage to any illegal alien wishing to enter South Africa. Witness the scrapping of visa requirements for Zimbabweans.

Seeing that South Africa has effectively already been invaded by a horde of foreigners, what about fighting a rearguard action within the borders of the country? After all, South Africa is the world champion not only at rugby football but also at violent crimes such as rape and murder. These illegals are often implicated in the illegal activities.

This also too much to expect from the transformed SANDF however. There are a few soldiers thousands of kilometres away in Burundi but none protecting the South African populace against the millions of invaders on own soil.

I ask again: what is the point of spending billions of rands on an utterly useless defence force, when the foreign invaders have already won the war against South Africa?

South Africa's own SAT

Our dear (in the sense that Kim Jong-Il is North Korea’s Dear Leader) minister of education, comrade Blade Nzimande, wants to institute a university entrance exam for those who fail to get university exemption in matric.

According to comrade Nzimande, it is unacceptable that “only” 18% of all matriculants gain exemption. According to him, 18% is “too low.” Excuse me comrade, but of these 18% that do reach university, why do almost half still fail their first year? This was also the case with my all-white classmates when I was at university during the apartheid years. Actually, comrade, the opposite is true: matric is and has always been too easy. Too many people that should not be there, still go to university and waste their time and their parents' money in the process.

However, in principle, something like the American Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is not a bad idea. The SAT is an entrance exam to get into college or university. If people do indeed have the potential to excel at university but are being constrained by a poor school environment, such a test would introduce a measure of fairness into the system. What it would also do, is to lay to rest the myth that apartheid / Bantu education / poor schools etc are to blame for poor educational outcomes.


We all know what the outcome will be. Let me give you a clue: no matter whether it’s matric or an SAT, some groups of people will still do better than others in any academic and aptitude test. In the USA, the people who do best at SAT's happen to be of East Asian origin.

So, as soon as comrade Blade introduces South Africa’s version of the SAT, guess what will happen? Right. A South African SAT still won’t solve comrade Blade’s problem and address his real reasons for wanting to offer another route to university. He will still have to institute quotas, like the extreme forms of racism perpetrated by the UCT's Faculty of Medicine against whites.

To understand this, just look at the USA: the Americans already have an SAT but now they have to institute quotas to keep the East Asians from filling too many places in science and engineering at MIT and Harvard. They're simply much better at maths and science than us Caucasians are.

The above obviously constitutes a very relevant philosophical question: what is the point of administering tests? Obviously it's to distinguish between competent and incompetent candidates. If you fail your bar exam, you can't become a lawyer. However, in the age of insane political correctness, things are not as simple as they seem. People can write tests and pass but if the politicians don't like the outcome, for example because only white people passed, tests are disregarded.

If you're going to disregard the outcome of a test and regardless of his passing or failing make somebody a neurosurgeon or give him a promotion, just because he happens not to be a Caucasian, what is the point of having a test at all? Does the test then just become some kind of charade that attempts to fool some people into believing that their abilities, as opposed to their skin colour, matter at all?

However, I believe I can help our dear comrade. Here’s my suggestion for a South African SAT, a test that will remove the need for any quotas and will allow comrade Blade to truly transform all universities.

1. You have 6 girlfriends and you’ve all been sexually active since age 8. You have also raped a number of women since age 14. What are the odds of all of you being HIV+? a) 100% b) 100% c) 100% (5 points)

2. You and your mates decide to rob a cash-in-transit van. What is the best artillery to take along? a) 9mm b) AK-47 c) RPG-7 d) M-16 e) all of the above (5 points)

3. The best way to get rich quickly in Mzansi is: a) Robbing a bank, b) working as a corrupt civil servant for Home Affairs, c) having a BEE deal awarded to you because you’re related to a minister, d) being friends with JZ. (5 points)

4. Driving on the wrong side of the road while pissed is acceptable if a) you’re a AA-appointed judge, b) you drive a black Jaguar, c) you really have to d) all of the above (5 points)
5. Your population group is: a) black (+10000000000000000 points) b) coloured (5 points) c) Indian -10 points d)other / currently disadvantaged / Caucasian (-1000000000000 points)

Funny how some Muslims behave in non-Muslim countries...

The Egyptian soccer team that is currently participating in the Confederations Cup soccer tournament in South Africa has complained that they've been robbed. "Typical of South Africa, one the most crime-ridden societies on earth" cynics would say, shaking their heads.
Things are not quite what they seem, however. Rumour has it that the players were robbed by hookers they were entertaining in their plush hotel rooms in the 5-star Michelangelo hotel in Sandton, Johannesburg. Prostitution is illegal in South Africa. If these rumours are true, the Egyptian "victims" were themselves committing a crime. Funny thing is they come from a Muslim country, where many women are forced to wear head-to-toe veils and where there are medieval laws against indecency, if not women in general.
In 1998 two touring Pakistani cricket players were mugged in South Africa. The team threatened to call off the remainder of the tour. Pakistan is also a fundamentalist Muslim country. It turned out that the players who were "mugged" were really beaten up after they had touched strippers in a sleazy Sandton joint called Club 69. Once again it appears that once the strictures of fundamentalist laws have been removed, these guys have no compunction in availing themselves of the pleasures of the flesh.
Rumours also circulated that the leader of the 9/11 attacks, Mohammed Atta, had a predilection for strippers, cocaine and alcohol. I'm sure Allah will forgive him, however, and that the offer of 70 virgins in heaven still stands provided you're willing to martyr yourself.
What is interesting is how some Muslims behave when they are no longer subject to religious laws. Perhaps it's not only the West that's so decadent...

The chardonnay socialists get a whipping at the polls

Many observers are somewhat perplexed by the extremely poor showing of the Left in the recent European Parliament elections, especially given the current economic crisis. One would have thought that parties with left-wing, socialist inclinations, those that promise more state aid to voters, would have done better among voters who are concerned about their long-term financial security.

The exact opposite happened, however. The Left was murdered in Europe’s elections. The real winners were right-wing parties.

The apparent mystification shown by the liberal press, such as The Economist, just once again goes to show how out of touch the Left and the liberals are with the concerns of the proverbial man in the street. This especially applies to well-off left-wingers.

The sardonic term “chardonnay socialist” is the often applied to those upper-class individuals who tend towards left-wing political views. These are people living in the better suburbs of London, the northern suburbs of Johannesburg or those on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. From the comfort of their penthouse apartments or mansions, they often want to lecture others on the “benefits” of multiculturalism.

What they will never do, however, is to experience those “benefits” for themselves. They will not, for example, go and live in suburbs like Harlem or cities like Bradford, where the “joys” of multiculturalism can be experienced first-hand. You will not catch a British chardonnay socialist living in a suburb with more mosques than churches, or an American one living in the inner-city area of Philadelphia. In South Africa they will live in their secure complexes in lily-white suburbs, hidden as far away as possible from the unwashed masses in Soweto.

While the white South African chardonnay socialists pay lip service to diversity, they strangely almost always marry white partners. One wonders what the statistical chances are of a truly colour-blind chardonnay socialist marrying a white partner, seeing that 9 out of 10 people in South Africa are not white... Chardonnay socialists in South Africa especially are however by no means all white. They are often nouveau-riche black plutocrats, the politically connected who became exceedingly rich without adding one iota of economic value. Like Julius Malema with his Mercedes and Sandton dwelling, they too will waste no time in escaping the unwashed masses for the leafy northern suburbs of Johannesburg, while still at the same time maintaining their left-wing rhetoric.

The ordinary voters in Europe, the working men and women, often do not have the luxury of living in Kensington or Highgate. They are forced by economic circumstances to live on streets where all the shops sell Halaal foodstuffs, where the hair salons specialize in ethnic hair. They have to compete with immigrants, often illegal immigrants, for welfare and jobs. They are the ones who experience the “joys” of diversity and multiculturalism first-hand.

Is it any wonder, then, that anti-immigrant parties like the Dutch PVV and the British BNP have shown remarkable gains in recent times?

Reitzhuis and Parktown Boys High: a case study in anti-Afrikaner bias

Possibly it’s because I hail from humble origins, but I’ve always been pretty skeptical about private schools. As one wag put it: Private schools are the cream of society – thick, rich and full of clots.

Although Parktown Boys High is admittedly not a private school, its fees are high and it is situated in the wealthy northern suburbs of Johannesburg. Possibly because of its liberal constituency, Parktown Boys was the first public school to admit non-whites in 1991. As the Wikipedia entry for the school gushes: “This was a bold step and can be attributed to the free thinking management which is passed down to the school boys.”

Pity that its so-called free-thinking and liberal management does not extend to curtailing its barbaric initiation practices, which include stripping people naked and beating them with cricket bats and clubs, one might add.

What is of particular interest to me is the reaction of the press, many of the old boys and parents to the arrest of those responsible for the brutal initiations at Parktown Boys in 2009, and the contrast to the Reitzhuis incident in 2008, as well as other incidents of initiation at Afrikaans-speaking schools and university residences.

For those who don’t remember, the Reitzhuis incident involved students at a University of the Free State residence filming black cleaners eating food, as part of a mock initiation ceremony, which had ostensibly been “urinated” on as part of a prank video aimed at satirizing the ANC regime’s obsession with racist transformation (aka the ethnic cleansing of whites from institutions.) In reality, the “urine” at Reitzhuis was Oros, an orange cordial. At no stage were the cleaners physically harmed, in contrast to the brutal beatings with cricket bats that boys like Pene Kimber’s son suffered.

Ms Kimber said during a TV interview that her son’s buttocks were covered in black bruises after the incident. In stark contrast, none of the Reitzhuis “victims” even thought of complaining, simply because they hadn’t been harmed. It was a black student who was not involved who stumbled across the video and whose complaint started the storm of controversy.

Possibly because the students at Reitzhuis were Afrikaners and their unhurt (and I want to emphasize: UNHURT) “victims” black, however, there was an orgy of condemnation from all and sundry, including the international press. The left and their sycophantic media had a field day by hysterically and in unison screaming “racism.” The ANC regime promptly instituted a commission of inquiry, which predictably concluded that all universities were infested by unrepentant white racists. Jonathan Jansen, an unapologetic critic and even hater of Afrikaners, was made rector of the university, possibly to teach those Afrikaner “racists” a lesson.

The students involved were also criminally charged, presumably by the institution itself.

Fast forward from February 2008 to February 2009. During a similar incident, this time at an upper class English-speaking academic institution (Reitzhuis was Afrikaans-speaking), the black head boy, Kaizer Tabane, of Parktown Boys was one of the ring leaders of the attacks on Ms Kimber’s white son and other victims. He was admittedly later stripped of his responsibilities but remained in the school. The students at Reitzhuis were expelled.

As far as I could ascertain, however, very few people viewed the Parktown attacks as a racial incident. There were no headlines in the New York Times calling Tabane a racist. This is illogical in the light of the Reitzhuis outcry, given that the ringleader at Parktown Boys, the head boy, Kaizer Tabane, was black, and his victims included whites. If white students at Reitzhuis play a prank on black cleaners without hurting them, it's racism. If a black headboy leads a vicious attack that leaves white people black and blue, it's not racism. Somebody should explain this to me someday.

The reaction and hypocrisy of the headmaster and some of the parents at Parktown Boys are also noteworthy. Whereas almost all callers to radio talk shows in the aftermath of the Reitzhuis video were unanimous in their shrill condemnation, many of the parents and old boys of Parktown Boys seem to want this incident kept silent. Many of them, in anonymous press interviews and calls to radio stations, want this incident to be handled “internally” (read: “swept under the carpet.”) The headmaster shows all the signs of somebody who desires a swift cover-up, accusing the press of bias against him. The parents of the miscreants at Parktown Boys want the charges withdrawn.

Note the important difference: the school was not the party that laid criminal charges. It was the mother of one of the victims.

Once again: when white, Afrikaans students play a prank in which nobody is physically harmed, it’s “racism” and it reaches the front pages of the international press. They are expelled from the institution and criminally charged by that institution.

When a black is a ringleader of a brutal attack on white victims at an English-speaking school, on the other hand, the headmaster and parents want it covered up and handled internally and the New York Times is strangely silent about the matter. No criminal charges are brought by the institution itself.

Call me excessively Afrikaans, but this reeks of the utmost hypocrisy and bias against Afrikaners and whites in general, perpetrated as usual by the idiotic English-speaking left-wing liberal.

Waar is die DA se konsekwentheid oor transformasie?

'n Hipotetiese scenario: 'n Man en sy vrou sukkel met geld. Hy is vreksuinig met die huishoudelike begroting, en baklei met sy vrou omdat sy geld mors. Hulle lewe van bruinbrood en ryswater. Tog speel die man elke Sondag gholf, teen R400 per rondte. Sy argument is dat sy spandering van R1600 per maand 'n spesiale uitsondering is, want hy't baie stres by die werk. 

Dink nie daar is baie mense wat simpatie met die gholfspeler sal hê nie - die man is 'n skynheilige ou huigelaar, sou die meeste mense sê.

Dit is eweneens so in die politiek. Jy kan nie sê jy is ten gunste van iets, behalwe waar dit jouself raak nie. 

Die DA is openlik ten gunste van (rassistiese) transformasie en regstellende aksie, en alles wat dit impliseer soos rassekwotas. Behalwe waar dit by die party self kom.

Die ANC het daarom 'n punt beet as hy kla oor die rassesamestelling van die Weskaapse provinsiale kabinet. Die DA kan nie konsekwent wil sê dat hy pro-transformasie is, maar dan soos die gholfspeler in my voorbeeld heel bo wil kla as die transformasie ook die party se eie aanstellings raak nie.

Dit gaan eenvoudig nie op nie, en is net so skynheilig soos die gholfspeler se uitsondering wat hy wil maak as hy sy eie reëls aan sy eie bas voel. 

Klink vir my al te veel of Botoxzilla-hulle slegs ten gunste van transformasie is, mits dit ander mense is wat getransformeer word, en nie haar Engelssprekende wit elite nie.

Good riddance to another incompetent ANC cadre

The South African minister of communications, Ivy Matsepe-Casaburri, has died. While any death is sad, very few, with the exception of her family and the ANC regime, will miss this fundamentally incompetent waster of oxygen.

Her long list of failures and disastrous policy decisions have deservedly earned her the nickname "Poison Ivy."

South Africa is blighted by its sloth-like telecommunications monopoly, Telkom. Its telecommuncations costs are amongst the most exorbitant in the world.

Telkom has enjoyed a monopoly since its creation, and only recently got some modicum of competition in the form of a second communications provider, Neotel. However, Neotel's creation came disastrously late and has yet to bring down South Africa's astronomical internet and telephony costs. Matsepe-Casaburri was directly responsible for this state of affairs by deliberately instituting obstacles and delaying tactics.

Another piece of incompetence for which Matsepe-Casaburri (what IS it with these idiots and their double-barreled surnames?) can be blamed is the delay in installing another undersea network cable. She insisted that any cable that arrived at the South African coast had to be owned by a majority of local shareholders. This was no doubt to enrich some ANC cronies – possibly Matsepe-Casaburri's husband or cousin.

Glittering eulogies have been spewing forth from the mouths of the ANC, and no doubt Matsepe-Casaburri will receive a state funeral, thereby adding to the billions she had cost taxpayers during her incompetent life.

Some may miss her. Internet users and the long-suffering South African consumers of telephony services won't be among them.

Increasing motor vehicle prices now is lunacy

The South African car industry is under severe pressure with sales dropping through the floor. Year-on-year sales, 2009 compared to 2008, are down by approximately 30%. Dealerships are closing. People working in the industry are losing their jobs.

If you believe that the law of supply and demand applies to the motor industry too, clearly the demand for motor vehicles has collapsed entirely. Nobody is buying cars. When demand is rising, sellers of products can increase their prices, because people want their goods. When demand is falling, however, it is very difficult to raise prices without exacerbating your falling demand.

Yet this is exactly what car dealers are doing. I have been receiving emails throughout March from BMW South Africa "warning" me about the coming price increase in April. BMW is not the only dealers raising their prices – Mercedes, Toyota and the others are doing the same. In Sunday's Rapport newspaper, it was reported that a new model 1.3 Toyota Corolla would set the idiot buyer back R195000 (approximately $20,000.) This is an insane price for a 1.3 liter runabout, and I don't care how many bells and whistles it has. It's still a 1300cc pissant.

Do the motor manufacturers such as BMW perhaps not know about the law of supply and demand? Were they not paying attention in Economics 101? Apparently not. To increase prices during such a severe international downturn, is utter madness, if not stupidity.

Expect more demands from the motor industry, nevertheless, that government (i.e. the taxpayer) should bail their industry out.

Expect the taxpayer, in turn, to have absolutely no sympathy for their lot, a fate which the car industry has brought upon itself because of its continuous gouging of the public. BMW should not warn me, Joe Public, about an increase in its prices. It should send out warning mails to its board of directors, informing them about how ludicrous increasing prices right now would be.

Criminality is rewarded in the transformed South Africa

Rear admiral Khanyisile Litchfield-Tshabalala (and don't you just LOVE the pretentious double-barrel surname, borne by somebody who is clearly not fit to be a domestic servant?), an affirmative-action appointee in the South African Navy, was found guilty on four counts of fraud, loss of state equipment, crimen injuria and assault during 2008. She received a suspended sentence after stealing a notebook computer from the navy and assaulting a sentry.

Litchfield-Tshabalala was the navy's director of transformation. "Transformation" is the ANC regime's code for anti-white racism, and a catch-all phrase for the deliberate ethnic cleansing of whites from all public life. The admiral's criminality is therefore not without great irony, seeing that transformation is in fact nothing less the criminal plunder of white assets, and a systematic, Nazi-like campaign of racial hate against whites. She was thus the navy's director of criminal actions against white members of the navy.

Not only has transformation produced shining paragons of integrity like our dear Khanyisile, but it has also caused most expertise (i.e. whites) to flee the navy as their career opportunities became seriously limited. The net result is that the navy, in spite of its new vessels worth billions of dollars, is no longer able to defeat somebody rowing a kayak. It is rumoured that the exit of expertise caused by racist transformation has left the navy with expensive white elephant vessels that are lying idle, because their commanding officers were selected because they were black, and not because they are capable seamen.

The admiral has been on leave since August 2008, but has been receiving a full salary regardless. And now, to add insult to injury, and with jaw-dropping illogic, she has received a performance bonus of R25000 (approximately $2500). Yes, you read correctly, she has been rewarded for her criminality.

This is of course nothing new in the banana republic that South Africa has become since 1994. Why, even our next president is about to be rewarded for his criminal ties with Schabir Shaik.

Dropping charges against Zuma will accelerate the descent into a failed state

During a speech at the University of Pretoria, Mo Shaik, brother of convicted fraudster Schabir Shaik and himself a person of very suspect morals, not to mention a member of the Xhosa-Muslim-Communist clique running the ANC, that the National Prosecuting Authority would drop the case against Jacob Zuma.

Zuma is under investigation for nefarious dealings with Schabir Shaik. Shaik was sentenced to 15 years in prison, but was recently bizarrely paroled on so-called medical parole, although he suffers from nothing more serious than high blood pressure. According to the evidence, Zuma received bribes from Shaik as part of South Africa's infamous arms deal.

Logic dictates that there are two sides to bribery: the person doing the bribing, and the recipient. If the person doing the bribing is sentenced to jail, how can the counterparty get off scot free? However, this being Africa, such things are indeed possible.

It seems likely that Zuma will become president and not face jail, because the moronic majority of voters who are unable to discern between right and wrong, and who indeed seem to admire criminality, if they are not criminals themselves, will re-elect the criminal ANC regime. Should Mo Shaik be correct, however, and the case against Zuma indeed be dropped, it would be a body blow to fairness, transparency and equality before the law.

It would send out an unambiguous message: if you have political connections to the corrupt ANC regime, you are above the law. Should you not have such connections, as is the case with Clive Derby-Lewis, you can expect to rot in jail. Derby-Lewis, in spite of being a model prisoner, is being refused parole, whereas the scumbag Shaik was released on medical parole.

South Africa's criminal regime is mounting increasing pressure on the justice system, and in so doing eroding one of the cornerstones of a functional democracy. Should Zuma's case be dismissed, South Africa's descent into a failed, criminal state, a process already in progress, will be accelerated.

Third World immigration is in no Western country's interests

I must firstly point out that I am a resident of a 3rd World country myself, although I am admittedly of European (Dutch, German and French) descent.

We are often told, usually by liberals and left-wingers, how immigration from the 3rd World "benefits" recipient nations. The large-scale immigration to America from Europe of the 1800's and 1900's is often used as an example of these benefits.

The problem is that immigration today has a very different complexion to that which happened in the case of America. The immigration America experienced, starting with the Mayflower, consisted mainly of European Christians, most of whom came from advanced, Western cultures.

Immigration today is of a radically different nature. In the case of Europe, it is experiencing large-scale Muslim immigration, in other words by people from a radically (in every sense of the word) different culture, religion and skin colour.

America is also experiencing an unprecedented stream of people who not only look completely different to what was previously understood to be an American, but who also belong to a different culture entirely.

Whereas it may have been true that immigrants who arrived at Ellis Island tended to cluster in ethnic neighbourhoods or even ghettos, this soon changed as the 2nd and 3rd generation immigrants became upwardly mobile.

The above does not seem to be the norm with for example Pakistani immigrants to the UK, or Muslims in the Netherlands. They remain bound to the same area for generations, seemingly unable or unwilling to integrate with what is an alien culture to them. They are disproportionately dependent on welfare, at the cost of native inhabitants. These ethnic ghettos become breeding grounds for hostility towards their hosts, and even led to the terror attacks on London in 2004.

The immigrants' culture is often so at odds with Western values, that cultural and racial conflict is the inevitable result. Almost without exception, so-called racists in the recipient countries bear the blame when conflict happens, never the immigrants themselves, but the root cause is ignored. If there were no Turks in Germany, the skinheads would have nobody to attack. Remove the cause of the so-called racism, and it will simply disappear.

Furthermore, if immigration really benefits the host country so much, would staying behind not benefit the donor country even more? If those who have enough ambition and drive to board rafts and boats to cross the Mediterranean, were to apply their ambition and drive in their own country, would that not be of immense benefit to the host nation? Almost without exception the sources of immigrants are countries in dire need of skills and ambition. Almost inevitably, the flight of people of working age exacerbates the load on Western donor countries, who not only have to play host to the immigrants on their own soil, but also have to pump billions into foreign aid.

On the economic front, there is increasing resistance to immigration in European nations and the USA, and this is for good reason. It is unjustifiable for the United States to give an Indian programmer an H-1B visa if any American programmers are out of work.

Once again, as was the case with my previous column I fail to see the upside of immigration for any Western country.

Diversity: too much hard work with no upside

In our modern, advanced and enlightened age, we have moved beyond primitive superstitions and beliefs, have we not? We can look back at the Catholic Church's threats against Galileo for daring to have wild theories about the solar system and nod sagely and feel smug that we've moved on.

The problem is of course we haven't really moved on. We are still scared of the modern-day equivalent of the Catholic Church: political correctness. There are certain things we dare not do, say or think, just like Galileo. One of them is to even dare to question the benefits of the great god diversity.

Diversity and the blind, unthinking and uncritical pursuit thereof have reached quasi-religious proportions. Anything that promotes or increases diversity is per definition good. Any resistance to diversity is by nature evil. It is frowned upon and open resistance to diversity is tantamount to heresy. It can cost you your reputation, if not your job.

Diversity, of course, means one thing and one thing only. It is rather like an electronic diode, allowing current to flow in only one direction. Diversity always means reducing the number of straight white males in any given situation, and replacing them with others – blacks, Asians or Latinos. Like the diode above, it never works in the opposite direction. Nobody would dare to suggest that the 100m Olympic sprint team representing the USA would benefit from fewer black faces and more whites.

A lack of diversity is however the natural state of affairs. Nobody had to teach you to associate with your own kind of kids on the school playground. You just did it. Nobody gave you a course to help you choose where you bought a dwelling – you naturally migrated to a neighborhood populated by people who looked more or less like you. It wasn't that you hated others, it was just natural and comfortable to associate with those who resembled you.

This is not the case with diversity. It is damn hard work. People have to be forced by law to participate in it. Another favourite word is "tolerance." If you have to tolerate something, it implies that you don't really like it. Organizations like the extreme left-wing, white-bashing Southern Poverty Law Center even have courses that aim to educate people to quote "appreciate diversity" unquote.

Nobody can furthermore explain the value proposition of diversity to me as a white man. Why must I attend courses and peruse handbooks to learn about it? What's in it for me? Where's the benefit? The answer is of course that there's no upside to me as a white man. On the contrary: people like me getting barred from colleges in the name of diversity is diametrically opposed to my best interests.

Not only is it not in my interests at all, it's way too much effort. I enjoy doing what comes naturally. It's nice associating with my own kind. I like to do things that make me feel comfortable. If I have to attend a course to get along with my neighbors, I may just possibly be living in the wrong area, y' know?

Are we heading towards a second revolution?

There can be no doubt whatsoever that the euphoria around the so-called miracle of the rainbow nation, South Africa, has completely evaporated since 1994. It was killed by rampant crime, corruption, decaying infrastructure, the abuse of the judiciary and many other actions of what is still a terrorist movement, the ANC.
This should not surprise anybody who's been reading the newspapers for the past 15 years since 1994. It has gradually become clearer and clearer that Nelson Mandela was not the Messiah; that Uhuru would also not put a chicken in every pot, and that South Africa was no different from any other African country in terms of its capacity to disappoint and disillusion.
What is also becoming clearer, is that as the financial tide went out worldwide, those swimming without trunks have been exposed. Here I am specifically referring to the beneficiaries of BEE, black economic empowerment, and affirmative action, AA. BEE is a form of forced racialized distribution, in terms of which white corporate assets are forcibly transferred to empowerment beneficiaries.
There are fundamental problems with BEE. One is that it is akin to winning a lottery. People who didn't take the risk, who didn't work their butts off, who just got handed wealth on a plate, are notorious for the way in which they waste such wealth. BEE is funded by loans, and these loans depend on the share prices of the donor companies going up. Exactly the opposite is happening at present, however. Many BEE transactions are about to fail because of the stock market collapse and crashing share prices.
Another aspect is that BEE attempts to short-circuit market forces. There is no relationship to the business acumen (if any) of, say, Smuts Ngonyama, and the millions he received merely for knowing the right people. It is therefore not productive in the sense that an entrepreneur's actions are productive economically. It is rather a form of tax on corporations. BEE lowers corporate competitiveness and makes the country as a whole less competitive.
Related to BEE is affirmative action, in terms of which millions of blacks were appointed to especially government jobs, not because they had the skills or experience, but simply as a reward for being black. Predictably, the chickens have come home to roost in this regard too. Companies which are under pressure are going to look at unproductive dead wood, and guess who're going to get the ax?
The artificially created black middle class was never sustainable. It depended on parasitizing white skills, i.e. white workers carrying AA appointees, and on rising stock prices to carry BEE beneficiaries. South Africa is therefore facing a situation whereby BEE beneficiaries are going to go from instant millionaires back to instant Joe Soaps. Companies are going to start thinking twice before appointing somebody just because he is black.
The country is going to sit in a situation where millions of newly-empowered blacks (empowerment is a fallacy done this way in any event) are going to have to go back to the townships from whence they came and to hand back their luxury cars.
My prediction is that they won't accept this lying down. Revolutions are led by the bourgeoisie, not the poor. A second, more violent revolution than 1994's is becoming a real possibility in South Africa.

Soccer World Cup 2010: a damp squib?

I must admit I'm not the world's biggest soccer fan. Why a game where people run around aimlessly kicking a ball for 90 minutes, with the final score often 0-0 or 1-0, has such international appeal, is quite beyond me.

I'm not alone in thinking that soccer is monumentally boring and a game for people with 0.005% brain activity, apparently. Witness the lack of interest shown in the USA compared to gridiron football. Soccer is seriously in need of a revamp in terms of wider goals, or a repeal of the ridiculous offside rule, if you ask me.

Be that as it may, South Africa's ruling ANC regime is apparently furious at the low level of ticket sales and general lack of interest shown in the 2010 World Cup Soccer.

According to a report in South Africa's Times newspaper, 80% of the tickets sold to date have been sold to foreigners. Ticket sales recently started happening online.

The true mystery here is why the cabinet or anybody else is surprised. South Africa is, after all, a third-world country mired in poverty. What did you expect, mister ANC cabinet member? Residents of squatter camps logging on with the super-fast broadband and latest PC's and flashing their Diner's Club Platinum cards in a rush to obtain tickets?

Did the cabinet members perhaps forget that most soccer fans in South Africa are from the poorer sections of the community, with no electricity in their shacks, let alone a broadband internet connection? Even the local discount of 40% off ticket prices still place the tickets beyond the reach of the vast majority of local fans.

Furthermore, people in European host countries like Germany have the expectation that their home teams may do well, or even win the cup. South Africa's pathetic soccer team, the abysmal Bafana-Bafana ("Boys-Boys"), are not even in the top 50 soccer teams in international terms. They have just as much chance of winning the World Cup as Jacob Zuma has of going to jail. International games between these losers and other international teams are often very poorly attended.

Big surprise then that the people who do have money in South Africa are also so apathetic. Many local fans would much rather watch Brazil play Italy than they would want to see the Banana-Bananas being thrashed 4-0 by Ecuador.

Given the international financial crisis, and the lack of affordability of tickets to local fans, do not be surprised if 2010 turns out to be one very expensive damp squib, resulting in major losses and white elephant stadia once the spectators have gone home.

The only chronic thing here is the ANC's bullshit

Schabir Shaik, convicted fraudster and South Africa's next president's financial "advisor" (in reality his partner in crime) has been released from prison on "medical grounds" (sic.)

No, that's not quite accurate. Shaik has spent very little time of his 28-month sentence actually behind bars. He was in fact in hospital most of the time, ostensibly suffering from high blood pressure. He was in reality released from hospital, not prison, on medical parole.

Up to now, medical parole has only been granted to those in the last stages of terminal conditions, in order to allow them to die at home, and even then this was rare. Thousands of AIDS cases die in prison annually. High blood pressure is not a terminal disease, although its complications may be. However, the interesting thing is Shaik immediately went home from "prison." He was not discharged and didn't go to a hospital for further treatment, as one would expect for someone with such a "serious" condition, but rather to his own dwelling. I suspect it will be a long wait before Shaik actually goes to a hospital of his own volition. Strange, that...

Furthermore, a very large proportion of South Africa's prison population suffers from another chronic disease called AIDS, one which is also potentially fatal and possibly more serious than mere high blood pressure. Will they too be allowed out of prison now, seeing that Shaik was allowed out? The authorities can hardly be consistent if they don't immediately release all HIV+ prisoners too, seeing the Shaik was let out.

The whole thing was a sham, a charade, a mockery of justice. Shaik's medical parole was granted for one reason only: as a political favour to Jacob Zuma. In what would surely be an extremely embarrassing "coincidence" in any civilized country, Jacob Zuma over the weekend said that he was of the opinion Shaik should be released. Voila! A few days later, in a ground-breaking ruling, Shaik is granted medical parole, and will probably spend his first night partying the night away by breakdancing in a night club.

Once again it is clear that there are one set of rules and laws for the ordinary people on the street or in prison, and another set entirely for those connected to the ANC regime. Seeing that Shaik has been rewarded for his despicable criminal acts by being let out of prison, can we expect to see the criminal Shaik as a replacement for Trevor Manuel - South Africa's next minister of finance?

How dumb are the Stormers' selectors?

On Saturday the 7th of March, the Stormers are facing the Bulls in a Super 14 rugby match at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria.
One of the possible members of the Stormers squad is one Luke Puke Watson, the player who insulted Afrikaners by using the perjorative term "Dutchmen" to describe us, and who feels the need to vomit on the Springbok rugby emblem.
Watson has already and deservedly been booed in earlier matches played at his home ground, Newlands. There is a much bigger problem waiting in Pretoria on Saturday, however. There are a million or more Afrikaners who live in Pretoria and surrounds, and the Afrikaners who live in Pretoria are a lot less forgiving than those in Watson's home town, Cape Town. Mr Watson can expect a very, very hot and hostile reception from the Loftus crowd.
That is if he is picked. One wonders whether the Stormers' selectors and coach Rassie Erasmus are really that dumb. Surely you don't want to place your team under added pressure, given that they've already lost two of their matches? Might there on the other hand be political pressure brought to bear on the Stormers' management, which would force their inclusion of this loathsome individual, to prove some kind of point?
I personally hope, as an Afrikaner, that they do pick Watson, and that he hears first-hand what we think of him.

Those sneaky Reds...

The South African Communist Party (SACP) held a conference over the weekend. According to Blade Nzimande, the head of the SACP, there are SACP candidates on the ANC's list of nominees.

Nzimande says that these candidates should be "accountable to the SACP." Let's understand this: the SACP does not stand in elections. You cannot at the polls vote for an SACP candidate, or for the party itself. You can only vote for the ANC, with the understanding that you may also be voting for communists, but there is no link between the will of the voters and the number SACP members of parliament.

Why then, if the SACP expects accountability and loyalty from their members who happen to be on the ANC's list, does it not do the logical thing stand in elections as an entity on its own. What is the SACP afraid of? We all know the answer: clearly it knows that it is a party of ideological dinosaurs, who belong in the dustbin of history along with the Berlin Wall.

The entire setup smacks of blatant opportunism by communists, who by riding on the coattails of the ANC, want to have a say out of all proportion to the true size of its membership base - less than 50,000 out of a total population of 50 million. They don't want to participate in elections but yet they want political power. How extremely democratic of them.

Having a say without being accountable to a voting public, is called a dictatorship. Comrades: if you want to be tinpot dictators, why don't you all just bugger off and go and jerk Kim Jong-Il off in his North Korean paradise on earth?

Cope self-destructs

And so the political party Cope self-destructs – if not politically, then at least as far as its credibility is concerned.

Cope keeps making promises about accountability and its
commitment to fighting corruption. Having made all these promises, however, what does it do in the key Western Cape province, the one in which the opposition parties stand a realistic chance of usurping the ANC’s provincial government?

It elects Allan Boesak as its candidate for provincial premier. For those not familiar with this Boesak's past, he was the one who
embezzled Danish donors’ funds.

The abovementioned donor funds were intended for the poor, amongst which Boesak’s own flock must surely count. Boesak, however, like Carl Niehaus, another corrupt cleric formerly associated with the ANC, clearly has a taste for the high life, especially so when there are women around. In particular, relationships across the colour line seem to hold a peculiar fascination for the ANC's cadres.

Niehaus has been married to black women twice, something which was illegal under the apartheid government. Boesak, a coloured (in South Africa this indicates a mixed-race, as opposed to black, individual), also started an adulterous affair with a white journalist, Elna Boesak, for whom he left his wife. Hardly behavior befitting a man of the cloth, but something paled when compared to his next misstep.

Rumour has it that one cause of Niehaus’s current financial woes was the demands that the women in his life made on him in terms of lifestyle. Boesak seems to have had similar issues, because he stole the Danish donor funds after he became involved with Elna. Boesak stole from the poor to fund a lavish lifestyle and fancy house, no doubt, and also possibly to keep Elna in the style she thought she deserved. Hardly the stuff of priestly virtue and celibacy, but regrettably exactly like Niehaus and any number of ANC cadres known for their extravagance.

Boesak was sentenced to prison for his theft, but was later pardoned by president Thabo Mbeki after serving time in prison. However, pardon or no pardon, the fact remains that Boesak is a lowlife, and clearly unfit to hold public office. Cope hasn’t won any seats in parliament yet, and already if sullies its reputation by picking criminals like Boesak as its candidate.

Cope has shown itself to be no better than the bunch of thieves, terrorists, murderers and scumbags known as the ANC, from whence most of its leadership came. But here’s the irony: there will still be idiot voters who vote for Cope, even with the Boesaks of this word on its list of candidates. They will believe the words gushed by the politicians, and not consider their actions.

Racist murder by taxi driver

To say South Africa's taxi drivers are a bunch of lawless louts, would be the understatement of the century. They are quite literally a law unto themselves.

As any South African motorist can attest, the normal rules of the road seemingly do not apply to the approximately 800,000 taxi drivers who contaminate our roads with their un-roadworthy wrecks and foul driving habits. They refuse, for example, to be stuck in traffic jams like lesser mortals, and will drive in the emergency lane, over verges and even in the face of oncoming traffic.

Quite clearly taxi drivers view themselves as above the law, and see their precious time as much more important than that of other road users. The overwhelming majority of taxi drivers are black, which is relevant to the rest of this piece.

In a shocking example of yet another racist murder, a white schoolgirl in the Pretoria suburb of Garsfontein has been deliberately run over by a taxi driver. Note that, unlike the case of manslaughter the police are investigating, the incident was clearly first-degree murder, not manslaughter. Manslaughter is the accidental killing of another person.

This incident was clearly premeditated, according to eyewitnesses. The driver repeatedly hooted for the schoolgirl on her scooter to get out of his way. When she did not comply quickly enough, he in cold blood deliberately ran her over. If it were manslaughter and accidental, the driver would have stopped after the "accident." This didn't happen. The driver did not stop and is still on the run. The corrupt South African Police Services clearly do not view this shocking racist murder as worthy of their urgent efforts at investigation.

The life of a mere white was also clearly less important than his precious time in the mind of the idiot behind the wheel of the taxi. Predictably, however, there will be no outcry about the racist nature of this murder, just like there is no outcry about the 3000 whites who are murdered annually by blacks in the orgy of racist murders that have occurred since the dawn of the so-called New South Africa in 1994.

We should not hold our breath for the local media to call a spade a spade, unlike the very infrequent white-on-black murders, which are inevitably the subject of a great outpouring of breast-beating and condemnation in the media. This incident will therefore quietly go away and be swept under the carpet, lest it offend the politically correct.

Should the taxi driver be caught, liberal and left-wing apologists will perhaps fall over one another to paint the poor taxi driver as the real victim, no doubt of apartheid, and completely forget about the grieving white family of yet another victim of a shocking black-on-white racist murder.

Many black employees are political appointees

The Mail & Guardian reports that 28% of all South African municipal employees nationally, and as many as 70% in the Mpumalanga province, are appointed in posts that are not reflected in the organization structures of the local authorities.

In other words, they are political appointments. They are not there because of their qualifications or experience, but because they know the right people and, very importantly, because they are black. With a few rare exceptions, such as the monumentally incompetent Mike Sutcliffe, you can be very sure that these are black appointees. Politics in South Africa is to a high degree of accuracy split along racial lines. If you are a white, you won't belong to the ruling ANC regime, and vice versa.

This type of cronyism should surprise nobody. This is Africa, after all. What the Mail & Guardian article does not point out, however, is that this sorry state of affairs taints the entire South African workplace, and not only local authorities. A very large proportion of blacks in all posts, public and private sector, have been appointed in terms of the racist policy known as affirmative action.

Affirmative action represents the very worst kind of political discrimination, akin to apartheid, in terms of which a white minority is systematically targeted and excluded in favour of those who are often less qualified and experienced, but who possess the correct skin colour.

This practice haunts all black employees, especially those in managerial and professional positions. A large percentage of them can never be sure that they would have obtained their positions were it not for affirmative action. People who deal with such people in the corporate environment will forever be asking themselves whether they are dealing with a person who is capable of real decision making, or even capable of really doing their jobs, instead of being a token employee with a dark skin.

One can only speculate about the psychological impact this must have on a black person who is appointed as a manager, for example. Does such a person not experience constant and nagging self-doubt? Jimmy Manyi is a prime example of somebody who in my opinion has a giant chip on his shoulder, no doubt because of his feelings of inferiority which could have resulted from his being appointed on the basis of his skin colour.

Political appointments, in short, taint the entire South African workplace.

White schools parasitized

The only infinite thing he knew of, said Einstein, was human stupidity. To this I would like to add another infinite quantity: human hypocrisy.

If there is one thing that especially South Africa's whites are constantly accused of, it is of racism. This is of course the case all over the world; any white in a so-called multicultural society who objects to others plundering that which he and his ancestors built up, is automatically a so-called racist.

Just ask any American who dares point out that illegal immigration from especially Mexico is destroying America. Accusations of racism in South Africa are usually leveled when one or the other member of the criminal ANC regime is inevitably caught with his hands in the cookie jar, something which is bound to happen regularly, given the ANC's terrorist origins.

So it is in education. Afrikaners, the white descendants of Dutch, German and French immigrants who started arriving in the 1650's, speak a West Germanic language called Afrikaans. Afrikaans is related to Dutch. Afrikaans-speaking schools in South Africa are known for their good discipline and good results. Afrikaans schools always figure among the top achievers in the final exams, in spite of Afrikaners being a small minority (+-6% of the total population.) The Afrikaans school Hoër Meisieskool in Pretoria was the best academic performer in the most populous province, Gauteng, in 2008. In the annual lists of the best performing schools, you can bet 60% or more would be Afrikaans schools.

However, this is not a tolerable situation to the ANC regime. It is determined to undermine and cleanse Afrikaans schools from the educational landscape. Its primary weapon is to introduce so-called "English-speaking" pupils, thereby forcing an Afrikaans school to switch to English. These "English-speakers" are nothing of the sort; their home language is always one of the indigenous languages such as Zulu of Tswana. Whites then flee the school as standards and discipline deteriorate, and pretty soon the school is another underachieving, failed institution, populated exclusively by black pupils. The children are no better off, but the odious minister of education, the Swazi-educated fatso with her posh English accent, Naledi Pandor and her ideologues, have ethnically cleansed another Afrikaans school and presumably are then happy.
Whites who attempt to resist the takeover of their schools are automatically labelled as racist. Naturally. This, in spite of the United Nations supposedly supporting the rights of minorities. Witness, for example, the response of one "Dale" to this blog. In addition to being unable to spell, Dale immediately and hysterically screams "racism", the hallmark of the intellectually bankrupt left-winger.

The ANC regime receives overwhelming support from the black population in election after election, so black voters must clearly agree with the ANC's anti-white racist policies. However, and this is the enormously hypocritical thing, this does not stop them from wanting to parasitize white excellence.

The Sunday Times reports, for example, that white schools in suburbs are being swamped by black pupils, whose parents vote with their feet against schools staffed by black teachers in their own areas. (In the article, references to "Model C" schools apply to formerly white schools.)

One principal is quoted as saying: "They hear that the school has a 100% pass rate and they trust the white set-up far more than they trust township schools because there are no unions, no strikes."

Black schools are therefore emptying and closing, whereas white schools are overcrowded. However, this is a self-defeating, temporary practice. As soon as there are too many black pupils in a school, the standards start dropping, discipline deteriorates, whites flee and the results plummet. This cannot be overcome by merely invading white schools and within a very few years the school is another failed school.

Not merely content with plundering whites' monetary wealth by means of the obscenely racist practices of affirmative action and black economic empowerment (the latter practices are the modern-day equivalent of the systematic dispossession of Jews by the Nazis, being the systematic plunder of a racial minority's resources, merely because they are white), the parasites are now also attempting to plunder whites' intellectual wealth by systematically invading white schools.

Yes of course it's apartheid, comrade Carl Niehaus...

Carl Niehaus, that Quisling, professional liar and fraudster, sans integrity, sans a PhD, sans even a bachelor's degree from the University of the Witwatersrand, says that apartheid was to blame for his bad behaviour.

Yes, of course it was, comrade.

Isn't everything that's wrong in South Africa due to apartheid? Black babies getting raped by other blacks? Apartheid. Jacob Zuma receiving money from a convicted fraudster? Apartheid. South Africa's blacks being by far the richest blacks on the continent? Apartheid.

It must have been apartheid that turned you into a traitor, a loathsome individual who sold out your soul and your people to a murderous bunch of terrorists, the ANC. You actively supported their campaign aimed at maiming and killing innocent civilians. You supported them when they killed innocent people in incidents like the Amanzimtoti shopping centre bomb.

You were deservedly locked up for your repulsive treachery, you murderous coward. You later claimed that 20 men had raped you the day before your trial. Was that a lie too, comrade? How come you didn't receive medical treatment? How come you didn't mention a word of this in your trial?

When "democracy" (sic) came to South Africa, you and your comrades wasted no time in plundering the nation's wealth. You stole, lied, cheated and defrauded your way to an extravagant lifestyle along with the rest of the fundamentally corrupt ANC cadres.

But help me her, comrade Carl. You're a white person, are you not? Didn't white people, far from being on the receiving end, benefit from apartheid? How can you then use apartheid as a justification for your behaviour? Your lies point to only one thing: the entire so-called struggle was based on lies. It was nothing more than criminal terrorists wanting to plunder a civilized, prosperous society for their own gain.
