Growing hatespeech, calls for genocide of Boers and black foreigners in South Africa:
There have been at least 88 very violent demonstrations from January 1 2011 to May 5 2012 LOGGED ON THIS WEBSITE ALONE in which white South Africans and black foreign shopowners were specifically targetted in racist violence accompanied by hate speech, and one white woman was gang-raped ‘in revenge’ by a large group of black males in Rustenburg. The Editor’s forum warns that the ruling ANC party’s call to boycot City Press newspaper unless they remove a satirical picture of SA president Zuma - “is tantamount to abuse of power’.
The SA Institute for Race Relations ' Anthea Jefferey said in an interview with the Citizen on May 18 2012 that since 2011, some 1,000 VIOLENT strike-actions had been recorded in South Africa, and that this violence was becoming increasingly aggressive. There is a growing atmosphere of violent unrest throughout the country: has the ruling ANC/SACP/Cosatu triad lost its grip on the governance of the country?
Above: In a rather odd racel-hatred-related incident on August 2011, a black South African police officer was photographed (above centre) pointing his assault-carbine at the head of an unarmed young Afrikaner male in Pretoria, taking sides with black municipal workers who were trashing the Pretoria streets and attacking passersby: the cop ordered the white youth to stop cleaning up after the local municipal sanitation workers.
AT least one to two daily rioting-incidents are reported in 2012 – and during which many major SA roads are being blocked by burning tyre-barricades and very violent, large crowds of people from adjacent squatter camps next to the highways, demand bribes from passing motorists. Often, whites are specifically targetted and racially abused during these riots. Yet the reasons for these 'political actions' often cannot be ascertained other than financial gain – these increasingly large mobs are threatening motorists with violence, rocking their cars and dragging people from the vehicles, in order to extort cash and property from them. There have been attempts by some police-officers to stop these road blocks by arresting some individuals taking the bribes - however not one of those people were charged - all were released without charges the next day. These specific demonstrators mentioned in the incidents, were specially targetting white South Africans and black foreign shopowners in racist violence.
“We are all racists” -- Hatespeech over a satirical painting of Jacob Zuma by a white artist causes a wave of anti-white hatespeech – yet a similar painting by a black artist does not:
“The recent development involving the president of the republic, an artist, the art gallery and a newspaper exposed us as a country and our sponsored reconciliation as not perfect after all, in fact as being nothing more than a fraud. Now the whole world knows who and what we really are. As a country we have been unmasked: we are all racists,’. This was written by Nhlanhla Mtaka, the executive director of political advisory Ingabadi group, twitter: @ingabadigroup.
Editors' Forum says ruling ANC-party's call to boycot City Press newspaper ‘tantamount to intimidation and abuse of power”
24 May 2012 JOHANNESBURG. “The South African National Editors' Forum notes that the South Gauteng High Court has decided to adjourn the hearing of an application by President Jacob Zuma and the ANC seeking to compel City Press newspaper to remove from its website an image of the Spear, a controversial painting by Brett Murray depicting the President.Sanef accepts that South Africans have divergent attitudes to the artwork in question, and that some may find it offensive.
However we believe it is the right and duty of print, internet, and broadcast news providers to ensure that their audiences are as fully informed as possible on matters of public interest. Decisions about how to handle potentially offensive material while carrying out that duty lie within the editorial discretion of each news organisation, and City Press is well within its rights to continue displaying the Spear on its website.
Similarly, the ANC is entitled to criticise the decisions taken by editors. We hope that officials and ordinary members will not allow such criticism to stray into the domain of threats against news organisations or journalists with whom the party disagrees.
Sanef is alarmed at the call by the ANC and senior governing party leaders for a boycott of City Press newspaper. While we recognise the right of the ANC to advise members on how to exercise their consumer decisions, the call for a boycott of a newspaper is tantamount to intimidation and abuse of power. This kind of behaviour is unbecoming of a party that functions in an open democratic stage and especially one which leads the national government.

Alfred Lephalala: May 25 2012: ‘I am going to John Vorster square and sing Kill the Boer over the Motto instrumental”
Anglo-American chairman fund chairman Clem Sumter warned on Dec 8 2010 that the ANC must stop the genocidal hatespeech against the white farmers:
Nelson Mandela promise: ‘ to Kill All the Boers ‘- song
Jacob Zuma incites Cabinet and ANC leadership at ANC-100th anniversary in Bloemfontein Jan 8 2012 to KILL THE BOER
Black SA artist: ‘ Brett Murray ‘penis’ painting of Zuma is not racist’
Spot the difference: Why were there no objections to the painting by black SA artist Aynanda Mabula ‘s display of Zuma’s and Tutu’s knobs in 2010 – but outrage and a court-case over white artist Brett Murray’s Spear painting of Zuma?
May 24 2012 THE STAR – Johannesburg -- Satirical artist Ayanda Mabulu said on Wednesday that for the ANC to describe Murray’s portrait as racist was “portraying black people in a wrong way”. “(The ANC) are dark and illiterate – they must go back to school and come back tomorrow,” said Mabulu.
‘If a president disrespected the people he was supposed to serve – there was no other way to depict that president:’
He said art didn’t know colour or race, as it spoke a universal language. He argued that if a president disrespected the people he or she was supposed to be serving, then there was no other way of depicting that president.
His own controversial painting, Ngcono Ihlwempu Kunesibhanxa Sesityebi (Better Poor Than A Rich Puppet), was shown in November 2010 in a solo exhibition at the Worldart Gallery in Cape Town. The exhibition, Un-mute my tongue, portrayed the desire of poor black South Africans for their views to be heard and considered.
The painting featured Zuma, Barack Obama, Robert Mugabe, PW Botha, Nelson Mandela, George Bush, Pope Benedict XVI and Anglican Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu seated around a table, like the figures in Leonardo Da Vinci’s Last Supper.
Zuma’s penis was supported by a crutch - a metaphor used by Mabulu for the perception that Zuma’s sexual escapades were out of control and needed help. Mabulu said that as a young black artist, he was feeling the sting of poverty, and he used art to depict what was going in the country. “What other way of depicting the president than how he is understood in the township?”
Mabulu said people in townships had been whispering in their homes about Zuma’s sexual prowess and Murray’s portrait had amplified the conversation. He praised Murray for his “powerful” portrait and said there was no room for “phony metaphors” when it came to social commentary. Artists had to “depict the situation as it is”.
Moving from the premise that a man’s genitals symbolised his power, he suggested that to depict accurately how much power Zuma wielded, he would have painted him with between 10 and 100 penises.
Worldart Gallery director Charl Bezuidenh out said Mabulu’s painting had a mixed reaction. “Some didn’t like it, but most did not feel offended and no one was upset.” Bezuidenhout said the Un-Mute My Tongue exhibition was so successful all the work on show was sold. “America is sending a rocket into space and we are quibbling about a painting that features a penis. On the one hand it confirms how fragile and young our democracy is and how we need to be cautious. On the other hand, the refusal to see the painting in context and the fact that the real issues and metaphors are not discussed, saddens me immensely,” he said. ANC national spokesman Jackson Mthembu declined to comment, saying he did not know Mabulu, nor his artwork. http://www.iol.co.za/pretoria-news/artist-slams-dark-anc-stand-on-portrait-1.1303227
May 24 2012 - Good morning Dr Stanton: Thank you for your e-mail.We (BLNI Boereleed Research Institute as well as the whole Boer population) would dearly appreciate it if you can publically support our point of view that this is indeed an incitement of genocide. \
VIDEO OF Julius Malema explanation during testimony in the Pretoria High Court (where he was found guilty of inciting the genocide of the Afrikaner/Boer people with his hate song ‘Shoot the Boer, Kill the Boer”):
ANC youth league Julius Malema president on trial for singing SHOOT THE BOER, SHOOT THE FARMER - and found guilty of inciting the genocide of a small minority in South Africa, namely the Afrikaner - Boer (whites) - minority in South Africa by this High Court, Here Malema explains why he sings the song.
Mr Leemans writes to Stanton: Please allow me give some history on this song:
1. Peter Mokaba sang :”kill the boer, kill the farmer..”
2. Malema sang sang:” shoot the boer..”
3. Zuma sang: ”bring my machine gun..”
Then in January 2012 Zuma sang:
“Sizobadubula ngembayimbayi….we will shoot with a cannon (or big gun)
Bazobaleka, dubula….they wil flee, shoot
Ulibhunu sizokushaya…you are a boer, jou will flee
Ikhabinethi izodubula….the cabinet will shoot (or sizodubula….will be shot)
Nizobaleka, dubula….you will flee, shoot
The use of the word “cannon” is a clear instruction that more Boers should be killed. In Bloemfontein, in a true African traditional manner, the ANC ‘s Umkhonto we Sizwe (Spear of the Nation) military branch (MK) acknowledged the command from their president – the uniformed members are seen dancing together with the president. Each MK soldier gestured with their handsas if holding a weapon. Even people in the stadium acknowledge by gesticulating that they were “holding’ a weapon. This can be compared to Dingaan ordering through song, his Impi’s dancing around Piet Retief. I
t can clearly be seen that the murders escalated on all whites ever since the singing of that song at the ANC’s 100th anniversary celebrations in Bloemfontein on Jan 8 2012: http://www.boerentrepreneur.com/farmitracker/
If we only take attacks in Bloemfontein itself over the past three years:
Jan 2010-May 2010 6 attacks
Jan 2011- May 2011 17
Jan 2012 May 2012 42 .
( We are not sure if these 42 murders included the seven (7) machete attacks that we found in this article:
According the UN convention on the Crime and Punishment of Genocide of 1947, it is a crime of genocide to incite the killing of a target group or population. This incitement to commit genocide must be punished in the country, failing to do so, the perpetrator must be extradited and tried in an international court. This crime is not a political crime, but a crime against humanity, according to the United Nations.
Furthermore does this Convention dictate that the organization represented during this crime, must be disbanded, and compensation paid to all surviving members of the targeted group, whether the genocide was successful or not.
This incitement by Pres Zuma clearly included to kill a target group the Boers, with cannons. (or large guns). This is the instruction given by the country’s President to commit a genocide. This instruction was given on live national television, and broadcasted to millions of black viewers instantaneously, and it was sung on the 100th anniversary celebrations of the ruling African National Congress in Bloemfontein on Jan 8 2012.
National television is a force multiplier in the modern era, which aids to the systemic mass-slaughter of unwanted segments of the population, creating atrocious conditions far worse than a genocide or actual war. This media force multiplier used by President Zuma to convey the instruction of genocide is further exacerbated by the alternative media like Youtube, Twitter, Facebook and other available social media networks active in the country.
The role of the media in conveying instructions to commit genocide, and the role of the media as a force-multiplier by oppressive governments, presidents, and political movements was acknowledged when the broadcasters working at Radio Rwanda, continuously broadcasted the message: “The graves are not yet full, the graves are not yet full”. This broadcaster was convicted and sentenced for the incitement to commit genocide, during the genocide in Rwanda.
In this regard the incitement by President Zuma is no different, than that of the radio broadcaster in Rwanda, but rather ominously, a rather far worse incitement, as it instructs the use of military canons, and as you know, South Africa possess one of the most accurate and deadly artillery systems in the world, designed and developed by Hedley Bull. This artillery system is commonly known as the G5 and G6 artillery system.
In this regard, it might be wise to notice that the United Nations acknowledges the fact, that if these particular crimes against humanity goes unpunished, it inadvertently leads to war, as the targeted group has to defend themselves against systemic mass-slaughters.
As such it would be wise to study the recent works of Daniel Goldhagen, on the modern-day systemic mass-slaughter of populations.
This song was then translated by a renowned professor of African languages, professor Manie Groenewald of the University of Johannesburg.
We know that proving a genocide with statistics is near-impossible, due to the built-in flaws of the Convention on Genocide.
However, the convention is very clear with regards to the incitement to a genocide by either a president, leader, political party, private group or individual, and makes absolutely no exception to any perpetrator, and states that incitement to a genocide is not a political offense, but a crime against the international community.
As such the Convention is very clear that a national court should try the perpetrator, and in failing to do so, the perpetrator should be extradited.
The singing of this song by President Zuma, links the revolutionary war of the ANC against Boers, prior to 1994, to a continuation of the revolutionary terror war against Boers after 1994. As such the ANC remain true to their revolutionary struggle slogan that states ‘war is continuation of politics with other means; and politics is a continuation of war with other means’. This act indicates that the Boers is the de facto target of a perpetual, and never-ending genocide in South Africa. This song is the most evident proof that the Boers are the legitimate targets of a perpetual genocide.
Similar songs was sung by ANC cadres, prior to 1994, in which the Boers was indicated as the enemy, to be killed with impunity, as part of the propaganda used for the organizing, mobilization and influencing of ANC-terrorists. These songs prepared the ANC terrorists psychologically for the killing of their targets; the Boers.
Furthermore, this incitement goes hand-in-hand with the prevailing political system and oppression that the Boers are subjected to inside the country. The Convention states that subjecting a targeted population group to economic conditions, that makes it difficult for them to survive, as a crime of genocide. In this regard, the Affirmative Action laws enforced upon the Boers, is a genocide. These laws prevent the Boer’s meaningful participation in the formal economy, and effectively bars them from the most jobs and careers.
The destruction of the targeted group’s, the Boer’s national identity and character is crime of genocide. This crime was committed by President Thabo Mbeki and his government’s destruction of the Boer’s true history, and replacing it with terrorist propaganda in the form of “Turning Points in History”. 50 000 of these falsifications of history was then distributed into black schools. In this history, Boers are projected as demons; and portrayed a legitimate targets for a killing, by any person wanting to do his black tribe a favour by ridding the world from evil.
We know that in the United Nation’s Commission for Human Rights, the ANC government is a member. We know that the ANC is a member of the ‘abuser’s club’ in this UNCHR, as indicated by the Human Rights Watch group. This is the group that systematically abuses human rights in their respective countries. These countries include inter-alia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, Red China, North Korea, Zimbabwe; South Africa and others.
The question is: We know it is easy to rationalize the case for or against this abuse by President Zuma against the Boers.
And based on whose truth we hold dear, the genocide of the Boers will be made public, or nullified and swept under the carpet of rationalizations. The BLNI is still of meaning that this matter should be handled by the ICC (International Criminal Court). Best regards, Edwin Leemans

“Dear Mr. Leemans, Do you have proof that Zuma has actually ordered the shooting of farmers, or was it his singing of the Shoot the Boer song you refer to? If there is more proof than that, we will publish it even more widely than we have denounced his singing of the Shoot the Boer song. Greg Stanton”
