Title: The South African violence against the white South African farmers.
Post by: fedup on March 11, 2018, 04:13:34 pm

With all the violence and murders that have been going in South Africa against the white South Africans since apartheid was abolished why is the liberal media staying quiet on this travesty and these crimes being committed against humanity? Why are these people being allowed to be murdered without one peep being mentioned in the North American media. If it has been reported somewhere I must have missed it. The alternative media reports these killings that are going on in South Africa every day. And to now add insult to injury the SA white farmers are about to have their land confiscated from them without compensation and handed over to the black South African. Farm land that has been in the hands of these farmers for a very long time for generations.

The CBC which is well known for running to the aid of anyone being persecuted against because of their race totally ignores these killing fields that is being committed by the black South African government and which has been going on against these white South African farmers for a very long time now? There is really no excuse for the CBC or CTV or Global to keep ignoring these crimes being committed against humanity. When some white says boo to some non-white in Canada the liberal media goes bonkers on it. But when thousands of farmers have and are still being murdered in South Africa it's not news to the Canadian liberal media. This Canadian media sure likes to pick and choose as to who and what side they prefer to stand on. The Canadian media sure has no problem when it comes to showing how being bias and prejudice works in Canada. They have become quite the experts at it.

A link wouldn't hurt.  How do we know this isn't something you made up?

Name names, dates, and lets see if the media has ignored it.

I'm not 'fed up' but..  https://www.news24.com/SouthAfrica/News/racially-charged-farm-murders-rock-sa-20171226

They have voted to appropriate white owned land without compensation abd  rhetoric coming from the leaders are contributing factors.   If I were a white farmer in S.Africa I'd be trying to leave - ASAP.

Sounds like Zimbabwe all over again. Shame, SA seemed to have such potential.

thousands murdered? Care to share a few of your referenced, as you state, "alternative media reports"?

Yeah, but why try to understand the data when all you want is an excuse to be outraged about other races?

old news chili - protests are over and, as I read it, community level reconciliation occurred (to set aside land for residents) along the "use it or lose it" theme of land expropriation. Try to keep up chili!
