I noticed that the recent Odds and Sods mentioned the crisis that White South African Farmers are faced with.
The new president of South Africa has publicly stated that white South African farmers will have their land seized without compensation. This means zero money given to them for their taken land. Many of those farmers have been on their land for six generations or more.
The South African government has recently passed a motion, by a three to one margin, to allow this will happen and they have called for an amendment to their Constitution. This resolution will occur by August 30th, 2018.
This is clearly Racism, yet the mainstream media have given this zero coverage. If there were Black Farmers lands being seized, I believe we would hear an uproar in the so called “major” news.
I can imagine that this will result in real Bloodshed upon the White Farmers, because many of the 73 percent South African Farm owners being classified as White, will be cornered into fighting for was once considered their land.
Incidentally, although I am no expert on immigration laws, those who are far more savvy than me, have told me the chance of these farmers resettling into the U.S. is unlikely. They will not be considered “those fleeing persecution”.
Why are the governments of this world allowing this potential slaughter of White South African Farmers, to take place? – M.S.
My personal opinion is that the crises is ignored because the current situation is due almost entirely to the media’s attack on South Africa in years past. to cover the crises now would be to admit that they might have been wrong in years past. We see much of the same type of coverage in the Middle East where the media was very loudly covering the toppling of the Libyan government or the syrian government, but not the aftermath.
