Youth of 1976 vs Youth of 2016

Still on the subject of Youth Day, what is the difference between the youth of 1976 and 2016 (40 years after 16 June 1976)? Nothing, just nothing! The words of Winnie Mandela are just as applicable as in 1976 as in 2016 as in 2017: "With our boxes of matches and our necklaces we shall liberate this country.” And every reasonable person will think that South Africa was liberated in 1994. Seems not the case, or it seems more that 1976 was not about Apartheid, or the Bantu Education System, or…

Julius Malema's Declaration of War on Whites of South Africa

Julius Malema said on 2 November 2017: I heard that these whites are coming to march again, they will announce a new date. I’m thinking national chair we must organize a counter-march and meet them half way. We cannot allow white people to do as they wish in this country, like they’re doing in Palestine. Let them announce the day they’re coming back. Let us meet them toe to toe , let us teach them who owns South Africa. We cannot be harassed in our own country during apartheid and be…

Dealing with White and Black Racism in South Africa – Double Standards?

It is my personal opinion that dealing with white racism/hate speech and dealing with black racism/hate speech in South Africa is not on par and that there are actually double standards in dealing with white racists and black racists. Racism and hate speech have no place in South Africa, and whether you are a white, black, yellow, or pink racist, the full velocity of the law must hit you square in the eyes! But, on 9 June 2017 AfriForum indirectly highlighted this issue of double standards…

An Overdue Initiative When I received an invitation to attend the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development Consultation . Anti Racism, South Africa

The Anti-Racism Circus

1. An Overdue Initiative When I received an invitation to attend the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development Consultation on a National Action Plan to Combat Racism, Discrimination, Xenophobia and Intolerance, I was encouraged. It sounded like a great idea. About time that somebody in government was going to do something constructive about all the farm murders and irresponsible politicians singing: “Kill the Boer! Kill the farmer!” and “one settler – one bullet!” rebel rousers…

The Unbearable Whiteness of Being

Many moons ago I read the novel, “The Unbearable Lightness of Being”. With all the anti-white campaigns running rampart in South Africa, I got inspiration from the book for this post. The Unbearable Lightness of Being is a 1984 novel by Milan Kundera, about two women, two men, a dog and their lives in the 1968 Prague Spring period of Czechoslovak history. The Prague Spring was a period of political liberalization in Czechoslovakia during the era of its domination by the Soviet Union after…

Steve Harvey and the Gentlemen's Club!

The following is one of those heart-warming stories and I want to share it with South Africans because, maybe, just maybe, we may need this also in our schools, but not only in schools, but even at our homes and in Spur Restaurants! And maybe, just maybe people like Judge Mabel Jansen won't be in trouble!! A group of Memminger Elementary students and their teachers were featured on the Steve Harvey Show (aired in SA on 3 August 2017) to talk about "The Gentlemen's Club" and how it's changing…

Mandela Day 2017

Well, here we are again in July already. Time flies, doesn't it? Why did Koos threw his watch out of the speeding train? He wanted to see time flies! But July also means once again Mandela Month will be forced down our throats like castor oil for a six year old. I wrote about the Arch Terrorist already many moons ago and you can recap it here: WILL THE REAL NELSON MANDELA PLEASE STAND UP! MY 67 MINUTES ON MANDELA DAY! Yes, I cannot stand Mandela, just like Zuma cannot stand Jan Van Riebeeck…

Woman24 and the Spur Debacle!

Response to Lili Radloff’s What the Spur boycott has taught women(but black woman especially). At last Spur had realized that they were wrong about the so-called racial incident where they took their frustrations out on a white male and banned him from Spur because he stood up when his little child was the victim of hate/racial attack on her in a Spur's playground. Now, the libtards are up in arms - 'how the hell can Spur backtrack and apologise to their white customers'? When I saw the…

The Naked Reality of Youth Day 2017 in South Africa

Earlier today (16 June 2017) I took a stroll to Shoprite in Putfontein Road Cloverdene to buy bread. When I was on my way back in Cloverdene Road a young boy (later introduced as July) greeted me friendly in Afrikaans and asked 'My baas R5 vir 'n brood asseblief' clapping his hands together pleading. When asked how old he is and if he is in school July responded that he is 19 years old and not in school but he has passed 'form 6', whatever it maybe, I assumed it is standard 6 or grade 8 as…

The Lost Youth of 1976

Tomorrow (16 June 2017) is Youth Day. Before I continue, read the post I wrote for Youth Day 2015 – Nothing has changed what I wrote then, except that our country is now even more messed up than in 2015! So, tomorrow Zuma, the ANC and other Party members will once again praise the lost youth of 1976 for their contribution towards the struggle, the fall of Apartheid, the fall of Bantu Education, the fall of Afrikaans as medium in schools, etc., etc., etc.! If the youth of 1976 were such…

Lees die brief en besin voor jy DA stem

Met erkenning aan Front Nasionaal Hierby aangeheg 'n brief wat ons ontvang het oor 'n oproep van 'n DA-werwer wat die persoon geskakel het en probeer werf het. Die brief gee die inhoud van die gesprek weer. Lekker brief om te lees. As die DA stemme werf Ek kry een oggend vroeg in Januarie ‘n oproep van ‘n werknemer van die DA wat kiesers opvorder om tog in die komende munisipale verkiesings vir die DA te stem. Die oproep was van ‘n vrou wat Afrikaans praat. My afleiding was dat sy Blank is…

Do we still have a democracy in South Africa?

Can we, after the ruling yesterday by the CC re The Hon. Zuma and the Inkhandla-gate, say that we have a democracy in South Africa? Probably not at grassroots level, but officially our democracy is alive and well and living in the court rooms and the office of the PP. Because there is so little honesty in politics today, what you hear (promises) is more often than not, NOT what you GET. The PAC promised free houses for all and would probably confiscate it from the "haves" of those days…

Swart Rassisme vs Wit Rassisme

RASSISME-WETGEWING Hannes Engelbrecht (Front Nasionaal). Zuma en sy trawante, die grootste rassiste van omgekeerde Apartheid, beplan blykbaar wetgewing om rassisme ‘n misdaad te maak. By Front Nasionaal het ons sedert die twyfelagtige “Penny Sparrow”-saak boekgehou – vir elke een wit rassistiese uitspraak wat opgeblaas word in die media was daar meer as 70 swart rassistiese uitsprake. Die feit van die saak is dat daar wel wit rassisme is. Dit is, volgens ons by Front Nasionaal, egter slegs…
