Dear PRAAG supporter overseas,
Aug 9 2012 - Hillary Clinton has just visited South Africa. Her message was: Just follow Nelson Mandela. If that were even possible, for the 94-year old is reputed to be hardly functional anymore and living in a remote rural hamlet called Qunu in the old tribal homeland of the Transkei. It also happens to be the most backward and corrupt part of South Africa, so one hopes Hillary did not mean we should start acting like Mandela’s Xhosa people.
Just today, we published an amazing article by Claudia Meades on our website in which she gives Three reasons South Africa will fail. The gist of her article is that South African whites who have created by far the most successful economy on the African continent, pay most of the taxes but have no say in government. The black ruling class has arrogated unto itself a life of conspicuous consumption and jet-set splendour that is simply unsustainable. Seventy percent of municipal managers have been officially declared unfit to do their jobs, for lack of qualifications, yet they continue in their posts!
She draws on a lot of material from my friend Ilana Mercer’s book, Into the Cannibal’s Pot – Lessons for America from Post-Apartheid South Africa. That is a fine exposé of current conditions in South Africa, with a lot of well-researched historical material as well. I can freely recommend it.
We have such a strong national and international movement going now that I am getting optimistic that the current South African system of black domination will not last another five years. If you read the article by Claudia Meades too, you will notice the impatient tone and exasperation, which is how most SA whites feel at the moment. I am also heartened by the fact that many of the English-speaking whites are rallying to our cause now. For years, starting in the late 1990′s, we Afrikaners have been publishing and speaking out against this insupportable regime, yet it was easily dismissed as a stereotypical “right-wing Afrikaner” response. Increasingly, however, all whites feel the same and will surely come together to address the challenge we face, to restore our rights and some sanity to this country.
I am proud to say that about a week ago we spread the story about the vicious massacre of the Viana family in Walkerville, south of Johannesburg, via Twitter and Facebook. It gained such momentum that within a day it had spilled over to the two biggest news sites in the world, Mailonline.com and Huffingtonpost.com, with a combined readership of 140 million users.
No doubt many of you, our overseas supporters, participated in this campaign and I want to thank you all. Very soon the ghastly conditions of violence and unjust anti-white laws in South Africa will stand globally exposed, with change or even regime change becoming an option.
As you will also read on praag.org, the bizarre Boeremag trial is nearing its end and so far 10 members of that group have been found guilty of high treason. They will face life-long prison sentences soon. An interesting article about the Boeremag was published on the website of the Russian State Radio, by Avigdor Eskin: Boeremag defendants, leftovers of apartheid or freedom fighters? I urge you to read and disseminate it too, as the more popular it becomes the greater the chances that the Russian state media will publish more information about South Africa and Afrikaners. Our story needs to be told in every country in the world, especially in those countries or parts of countries where political correctness is not yet the norm.
Please also sign the petition on the front page of praag.org for the release of Clive-Derby Lewis who has already spent 18 years in jail for participating in the assassination of Chris Hani, the Communist Party leader, in 1973. He is an ex-Member of Parliament, a decent and patriotic man of English descent but who had embraced the Afrikaner cause, together with his Australian wife, Gaye, a long time ago. They both speak excellent Afrikaans, tinged with a slight English accent. He is now 76 years old and suffering from prostate cancer. I visited him in Pretoria Central Prison a few months ago and, despite his difficulties, he was in good spirits. He is much respected by the prison authorities and his fellow inmates, including the black ones who have elected him to all sorts of committees within the prison. A man like him does not deserve to spend his last months or years in captivity.
I firmly believe that our struggle will do a lot to free the whole world of the disastrous policies imposed in the West from the 1950′s onwards and which have so heavily impacted people of European descent, their identity, sense of justice and self-worth. South Africa is but a microcosm of the planet.
Until next time, with kind regards,
