Joseph Secreve's open letter to Chris Warnes

This was posted on Dan Roodt's site a while back but it demonstrates a curious double standard which the West often employs against Afrikaans folks. This open debate got started when Dan Roodt made some positive points about Apartheid & while I do not support Apartheid as it was administered [as it was a failed attempt at coming to grips with the macro State & the heterogeneous national & ethnic groups lumped together therein without quite reforming the macro State itself] the following observations are interesting as they demonstrate that the truth was overshadowed by the propaganda which was aimed at removing a dispensation.

Open Letter to Chris Warnes.
Joseph Secreve.

For an academic I was quite surprised by your un-academic condemnation of Dr. Roodt’s wish to be present at the “Woordfees” festival. Indeed a sign of moral decadence, if there ever was one.

Once again the age old comparison of Apartheid as being equal to Nazism is alluded to in your comparison of David Irving. Before and after the Second World War, there was a clear reduction in the number of Jews and Gypsies…genocide no doubt. There were concentration camps and openly declared hatred aimed at these minority groups from a majority group. Could you please show me where those odious architects of apartheid built their concentration camps to incarcerate Africans? Or perhaps fragments from political speeches made by Verwoerd, Vorster or anyone claiming that apartheid was a system designed to obliterate Africans?

The only people who were victims of genocide in South Africa were the Afrikaners [ed: the Boerevolk - most Western Cape Afrikaners were fine], during the Anglo Boer war and today. During apartheid Africans in South Africa enjoyed the highest standard of living compared to Africans elsewhere in Africa. Up to the 1950’s, the French tortured and killed 60 000 Algerians, the Chinese communists murdered 90 000 Tibetans, the Americans had thousands of Indians killed or forcibly removed, the English killed approximately 80% of the Aboriginal Australians, while Verwoerd had schools, free housing, universities roads and hospitals built for Africans in the same period.

Other than the Swedes, Germans, English or French, the Afrikaners never supported theories of racial superiority. From this perspective, Roodt’s claims that Apartheid was basically good is not a value judgement, but an empirical fact, considering that the African population multiplied itself twenty times in the period 1900-2000, which one can hardly call a genocide at all. Other than this, 40% of the entire South African population, that incidentally counts eight times more blacks than whites, claims that even though Apartheid led to excesses it was basically a good idea. If you consider that 51% of the same South African population does not trust the government, Dan Roodt might just have a point, as painful as it may seem. The current political system in South Africa resembles Nazism and fascism much more than Apartheid ever did.

According to Dr. Gregory Stanton, head of Genocide Watch, South African farmers are in the semi-final phase of full blown genocide, and farming in South Africa is considered the most dangerous profession in the world at this stage. The number of farmers murdered is twice as high as the number of Africans killed by the erstwhile police force during 40 years of Apartheid. Incidentally, during the first 18 years of Apartheid, the number of Africans killed in politically motivated acts is 183. Compared to the number of Africans killed for political reasons in 1990, which stands at 14 000, this could hardly be called some upmarket (or should I say bourgeoisie) proclamation. It surprises me that while all these horrors are happening, Stellenbosch University is doing its utmost to pretend that this isn’t really happening, and anyone claiming otherwise is deemed a racist, or fascist.

Other than your use of undefined, emotionally laden terminology, dr. Roodt simply states facts that could be read in everyday English liberal newspapers or World Bank statistics. What surprises me is how South Africa’s intelligentsia feels threatened when he speaks, as if the moral guardians themselves have something to hide. Where Roodt quotes statistics, he is deemed a racist propagating hate speech. If Nadine Gordimer states that Afrikaner women are “lower than rats, closer related to plants, just fit enough to be raped in an act of genus preservation”, she wins the Nobel Prize, as well as a Knighthood and some honorary doctorates. She still has to come up with scientific evidence to prove that Afrikaner women are genetically (or otherwise) inferior to rats. But no, she’s not considered a fascist! Is it perhaps because she writes in English?

Personally I believe that the liberal predominantly English “Boerehater” elite is so well socialized in childishly proclaiming a puny sense of superiority over Afrikaners, that if all of a sudden an Afrikaner who doesn’t fit the “dumb Dutchman” profile makes himself heard, it catches them off guard and renders them insecure. Hence the strong words against him to attempt to stay in the saddle. An interesting article written by McGregor and Marigold (2003) posted in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology vol. 85 nr. 5 p. 838-852, gives a clear perspective how this defensive zeal works.

The fact that dr. Roodt dared to write his “adapt and die” article should be read in the same context as his words state that one should not treat the symptom, but the problem. Considering his article racist, says more about the reader than the writer. In any scientifically responsible community, one must see this as a problem as the statistics prove this to be such. The next step is to hypothesize as to why this is the case. Nowhere is mentioned that blacks are more violent because they are black. The question ’why’ lends itself to scientific enquiry which should be treated as such. Unfortunately this topic is heavily laden with political correctness which makes a scientific enquiry almost impossible, and shooting the messenger is to go from bad to worse…very ’uncool’ for an academic.

If Stellenbosch University still regards itself a university at all, dr. Roodt of all people should be given a speakers podium. Unfortunately it has become an institution of anachronistic dinosaur worship that has shown it’s loyalty to a system that collapsed before Apartheid did and killed, starved and incarcerated hundreds of millions of people more than Apartheid even dared to do. I suggest that, in order to get ahead, one must address these problems that fundamentally tear at the social fabric of South Africa. One can only deny reality so much by fleeing to ideological convictions. Ultimately reality does catch up with one. The collapse of Berlin Wall is living proof of this.

The Subversion of the Boer Republican Movement

The following was posted by Adriana Stuijt in an article on African Crisis in mid 2007. I am re-posting it here because it shows how the Boer Republican cause was subverted & maligned by the old Broederbond establishment. The cause of Boer self determination was opposed by a number of forces including the Afrikaner financial / media & political power.


The AWB wasn't formed as a political party and it never aspired to participate in official politics at all. Their purpose was completely different. Eugene Terre'Blanche was a very interesting man who inspired a lot of people with his amazing speech-making ability, he also was a good writer of Afrikaans plays, something which a lot of people probably don't know, and some of his work was even used in text-books at Afrikaans schools at the time. The thing I remember most about him was how genuinely fond he was of the African landscape and the Boer people, and how well he knew the history contained inside that landscape. He also was a very impulsive man and not sophisticated politically. He also was rather more knowledgeable about the culture of the African tribes in his region around Ventersdorp than most 'whites' were.

Robert van Tonder who founded the Boer State Party, always called him a 'wonderfully creative Boer" and while he also didn't much like that flag and some of the followers and especially didn't agree with any violent means of gaining their goal, these two men often held meetings together all over the country. The purpose of these meetings was not to gain any kind of political support because I was convinced that neither believed in participating in actual politics all that much at that point any more. Instead they embarked on this countrywide travel routine during which they held weekend meetings to teach Afrikaners about their own 'lost' history and to teach them to become Boers again - under the National Party government, they weren't allowed to know a lot of their own rich history and the word "Boer" wasn't used much by National-Party ministers.

Robert printed his own books about the Boer State ideals on his own printing press at his farm and they drew a lot of people to these meetings. And always there were these loud-mouthed agent-provocateurs at these meetings with nazi-flags, men who often were rude and rowdy to deliberately create an uproar which would reflect badly in the news media. After a while their supporters became quite skilled at identifying these guys and keeping them out of their meetings. One comment which always shut them up was the question: 'if you don't support our Boer autonomy inside our own borders, why do you support it for every other race in South Africa who have their own homelands"?"

While posting on another blog Stuijt expounded on Robert van Tonder.

In response to Ron's explanation about the history of the Boerestaat ideal, I do wish to add the following:

Robert van Tonder spent most of his own money to plead for the Boer-cause abroad. He not only self-published his boek 'Boerestaat' in four different foreign languages with many reprints: English, Dutch, German and French; he also maintained his own (illegal) underground printing press at his farm, and all his school-age children were involved in printing this small book, and also distributing his monthly newspaper 'Die Stem".

Some editions were even banned, much to his delight, since the contents would then get publicity in the mainstream news, too.

Van Tonder explained the Boerestaat ideal in a thin booklet of only fifty or so pages.

His use of language clearly was very economical, also because he was a very practical businessman - having been the very first Afrikaner in Johannesburg to set up his own car-dealership and the very first local businessman in Johannesburg to advertise in Afrikaans newspapers, he also used this same business-like approach to also propagate the Boerestaat ideal.

He wasn't into fundraisers or paying fat-cat salaries to any party organisers -- which squeezed cash out of the poorest of the poor Afrikaners, as the National Party and the Herstigte Nasionale Party always were so fond of doing.

He merely propagated his Boerestaat idea - and, realising that most people had been deliberately denied much knowledge about their own post-Anglo-Boer war history, most of his time was spent trying to teach people about their own history.

His opponents inside the Nationale Party also were tireless in discrediting him as much as they could - and they had all of the state's machinery to do this with.

They were relentless in attacking this maverick messenger and undermining his personal life, too, although this was not clearly understood by everyone concerned at that time, it created great hardship for his children.

Still, he continued his campaign. Nothing seemed to deter him from his chosen path.

He used to appear at many public meetings - he would go to wherever he was invited -- and often he was pelted with trash, abused, beaten and shouted at, and people often attacked him while trying to take away the microphone to stop him from even being heard.

Then the Afrikaans newsmedia would write afterwards that the meeting had been 'rowdy, typical right-wing neo-nazi thuggery', and publish pictures of NP-members who had been planted at the meetings carrying Nazi-flags. This was all done quite deliberately by the National Party hierarchy to constantly discredit Van Tonder and any of his followers in public.

There also was tremendous pressure placed on his personal life too: his own Gereformeerde church in Randburg even kicked him out as a member because he had remarried without their permission after his wife's death from cancer -- even though Van Tonder was a major contributor to the church's building fund, and his own nephew was the then-SA-president F W de Klerk; and in spite of the fact that Van Tonder's own great-grandfather Rev Durk Postma had been the founder of this church.

The NP-regime also tried to undermine his income -- government departments in Pretoria for instance, deliberately blocked his long-running application for turning his 200-ha farm Zandspruit north of Randburg into a middle-income housing development.

Today, this farm is a mission station for members of the Ndebele-tribe, and the beautiful wellspring of the Zandspruit river which Van Tonder had always protected by creating a small bird sanctuary around it, has become a filthy, stinking swamp.

Van Tonder also was the founder of the city of Randburg -- and was that city's first real-estate agent.

Thus he amassed quite a few of the first little cottages which had been built there by retired Boer mineworkers over the years.

He wanted to preserve this specific group of cottages as a museum of the history of the post-war Boers: many of these little houses had been built with explosives-boxes for instance.

So the NP-city fathers of Randburg confiscated these little rental properties, which he was renting out for very little money to empoverished Afrikaner families -- and bulldozed them all.

He still held a sit-down protest in the middle of the street for several days to try and stop the bulldozers.

Van Tonder was a physically small man but also the most courageous man I'd ever seen.

He could stand on a platform and get shouted down and have trash thrown at him, sometimes shots were even fired past his head, and National Party members were constantly jumping up behind him, waving Nazi-flags for the photographers' benefit -- but he just never gave up.

He would arrive home covered in trash and rotten tomato-goop, send his clothes off to the cleaners and start planning the next meeting.

The only thing which finally made him give up on life, was the devastating pain of skin-cancer ( something which many Afrikaner/Boer families also suffer from due to their genetic tendency for porphyria. )

He also took his plea for Boer independence to various international bodies, such as UNPO (Unrepresented Nations and Peoples' Organisation (UNPO) in The Hague.

They turned down the Boerestaat Membership's membership application.

He and his Boerestaat Party had complied with all the requirements for membership - including the one requirement which said that they 'did not propagate violence to obtain their goals'.

The only reasons UNPO turned down the Boerestaat Party's application were the violence-driven activities of AWB-leader Eugene Terre'Blanche and his Ystergarde.

Van Tonder often was an invited guest speaker at AWB meetings.

Of course, Van Tonder always told me, that he would speak anywhere and on any platform to propagate the Boerestaat ideals. He went to any meeting he'd been invited to.

It's not true that he refused to speak English. That's basically one of those myths which has been created around him.

He in fact spoke English better than many an Englishman and loved reading the language, too. This self-educated man was in fact an avid reader in English, Afrikaans, Dutch and German.

It was however his personal policy as a businessman that he could serve his customers in quite a few languages and always did whenever asked: English, German, Afrikaans - even the members of the Malawi royal family would buy cars from him and he'd treat them just as courteously as he would the poorest Afrikaner who came to him for a used-car deal or an inexpensive rental home.

What he objected to was the extremely rude behaviour of English-South African business people who always persistently refused to serve Afrikaner customers in the language of their own choice, i.e. Afrikaans.

He resented this constant need for Afrikaners to have to negotiate with rude unilingual shop-clerks about which language they, the customers, should be served in.

That's why he felt that the Boerestaat was the only solution for the long-term survival of the Boer people in South Africa: a place where they could flourish in their own cultural environment, where they didn't have to constantly go around apologising for the fact that they were Boers and where they would not need to negotiate about their own language rights.

In 1977, he had a visit from Time Magazine Johannesburg bureau chief William McWhirter, and the two spoke for hours, walking across the farm. McWhirter then wrote a surprisingly positive piece about Van Tonder's Boerestaat ideals, with only one negative comment, namely that the homestead of the Mahlangu family-workers on the Van Tonder farm did not have electricity, although they did have running water and working toilets.

He was also interviewed by other foreign correspondents - and nearly always in English.

Westerners have often heard of the charismatic but bombastic Eugene Terre'Blanche but most have never heard of the mild mannered intellectual & statesman like Robert van Tonder who understood that the best path to secure the freedom of his people - the Boerevolk - was to restore the Boer Republics in some form & who was significantly suppressed & repressed by the old National Party regime. Van Tonder had his own illegal underground printing press which he used to help get the information out about his people & their overlooked / marginalized post Anglo-Boer War history. Van Tonder left the National Party in 1961: -the same year that Hendrik Verwoerd turned South Africa into a nominal republic - in order to pursue the goal of restoring the old Boer Republics which were taken from the Boerevolk after the conclusion of the second Anglo-Boer War. Robert van Tonder also wrote a short book entitled Boerestaat which was published around the time he started the Boerestaat Party which was made available in English / Dutch / German / & French as well as Afrikaans. Van Tonder ended his life on August 5 1999 as a result the severe pain he was suffering from due to his long struggle with cancer.

White Slavery, what the Scots already know

from Doberman @ I Luv SA

Source:

I will return to this subject again and again, mainly for one reason: liberals hate the truth being exposed and well, I like to piss off liberals. I like to show them up to be the hypocrites that they are. Why mess with facts when a good yarn will do. You may recall our post "White Slavery: The Slaves That Time Forgot" which described how tens of thousands of White slaves were sent to America. I made the point that despite this 'fate', you do not hear modern Whites blame this past for their problems today unlike African-Americans which use their slave legacy (which occurred to their ANCESTORS no less) as a crutch to explain away their failings today. This excuse has to end.

I'll repeat what I said then: how can events that played out centuries ago, to people that are DEAD affect the circumstances of those alive today? It cannot of course but liberals and Blacks like to tell otherwise, the original sin precept. A Black child born in America today has the same opportunities that a White, Asian, Hispanic child that America has to offer and in some instances, MORE due to quotas and affirmative action.

History is littered with examples of races, nations and cultures conquering - and being conquered. Whites, Arabs, Indians, Chinese, every nation, race and creed on earth has at some point in its past suffered injustice.

It is perplexing then that the only race group today that refuses to let go of the past and indeed uses the past to justify its actions of today is the Black race. I still await with bated breath for someone to explain this to me. It is also the only race that continuously demands 'concessions', 'reparations' and 'apologies', blaming people today (and those yet to be born) for the actions of ancestors. Bizarre.

My only conclusion why this phenomenon exists is that Blacks have cottoned on to a gig that pays well. It is big business. It gets one a leg up so to speak. Why let it go? Milk it for all it's worth. They understand the other phenomenon of White Guilt, an affliction that affects mainly White liberals headquartered in Hollywood who need a pet sympathy project to assuage their imagined guilt, a church confessional if you like, and also used to alleviate their natural (or imagined) anxieties. These are the same Hollywood liberals that buy Toyota Prius' to show everyone how they care about the environment while arriving at carbon-polluting glittering functions in gas-guzzling limousines. You know the kind.

A famous history professor stated that history was not a science but a continuing investigation into the past; a person’s conclusion is based on their own bias. This story will offer evidence that the Alba, Scots, Irish and Pics have been the longest race held in slavery. The reader will be responsible for their own bias pertaining to White Slavery.

Alexander Stewart was herded off the Gildart in July of 1747, bound with chains. Stewart was pushed onto the auction block in Wecomica, St Mary’s County, Maryland. Doctor Stewart and his brother William were attending the auction, aware of Alexander being on that slave ship coming from Liverpool England. Doctor Stewart and William were residents of Annapolis and brothers to David of Ballachalun in Montieth, Scotland. The two brothers paid nine pound six shillings sterling to Mr. Benedict Callvert of Annapolis for the purchase of Alexander. He was a slave. Alexander tells of the other 88 Scots sold into slavery that day in “THE LYON IN MOURNING” pages 242-243.

Jeremiah Howell was a lifetime-indentured servant by his uncle in Lewis County, Virginia in the early 1700’s. His son, Jeremiah, won his freedom by fighting in the Revolution. There were hundreds of thousands of Scots sold into slavery during Colonial America. White slavery to the American Colonies occurred as early as 1630 in Scotland.

According to the Egerton manuscript, British Museum, the enactment of 1652: it may be lawful for two or more justices of the peace within any county, citty or towne, corporate belonging to the commonwealth to from tyme to tyme by warrant cause to be apprehended, seized on and detained all and every person or persons that shall be found begging and vagrant.. in any towne, parish or place to be conveyed into the Port of London, or unto any other port from where such person or persons may be shipped into a forraign collonie or plantation.

The judges of Edinburgh Scotland during the years 1662-1665 ordered the enslavement and shipment to the colonies a large number of rogues and others who made life unpleasant for the British upper class. (Register for the Privy Council of Scotland, third series, vol. 1, p 181, vol. 2, p 101).The above accounting sounds horrific but slavery was what the Scots have survived for a thousand years.

The early ancestors of the Scots, Alba and Pics were enslaved as early as the first century BC. Varro, a Roman philosopher stated in his agricultural manuscripts that white slaves were only things with a voice or instrumenti vocali. Julius Caesar enslaves as many as one million whites from Gaul. (William D Phillips, Jr. SLAVERY FROM ROMAN TIMES TO EARLY TRANSATLANTIC TRADE, p. 18).

Pope Gregory in the sixth century first witnessed blonde hair, blue eyed boys awaiting sale in a Roman slave market. The Romans enslaved thousands of white inhabitants of Great Britain, who were also known as Angles. Pope Gregory was very interested in the looks of these boys therefore asking their origin. He was told they were Angles from Briton. Gregory stated, “Non Angli, sed Angeli.” (Not Angles but Angels).

The eighth to the eleventh centuries proved to be very profitable for Rouen France. Rouen was the transfer point of Irish and Flemish slaves to the Arabian nations. The early centuries AD the Scottish were known as Irish. William Phillips on page 63 states that the major component of slave trade in the eleventh century were the Vikings. They spirited many ‘Irish’ to Spain, Scandinavia and Russia. Legends have it; some ‘Irish’ may have been taken as far as Constantinople.

Ruth Mazo Karras wrote in her book, “SLAVERY AND SOCIETY IN MEDEIVEL SCANDINAVIA” pg. 49; Norwegian Vikings made slave raids not only against the Irish and Scots (who were often called Irish in Norse sources) but also against Norse settlers in Ireland or Scottish Isles or even in Norway itself…slave trading was a major commercial activity of the Viking Age. The children of the White slaves in Iceland were routinely murdered en masse. (Karras pg 52)

According to these resources as well as many more, the Scots-Irish have been enslaved longer than any other race in the world’s history.

Most governments do not teach White Slavery in their World History classes.

Children of modern times are only taught about the African slave trade.

The Scots do not need to be taught because they are very aware of the atrocities upon an enslaved race. Most importantly, Scots have survived to become one to the largest races on Earth!!!

White Slavery in America
The topic of this story is a sensitive one yet one of great importance. White slavery in America was real. There are many documents that verify the bondage, kidnapping and transporting of Brits to the Colonies as slaves. The importance of this story will help those who cannot find a ship passenger list on their ancestor. This story may not pertain to all who came to America that are not listed on ship passenger lists.

The Journal of Negro History #52 pp.251-273 states, “The sources of racial thought in Colonial America pertaining to slave trade worked both directions with white merchandise as well as black.”

Thomas Burton recorded in his Parliament Diary 1656-1659 vol. 4 pp. 253-274 a debate in the English Parliament focusing on the selling of British whites into slavery in the New World. The debate refers to whites as slaves ‘whose enslavement threatened the liberties of all Englishmen.’

The British government had realized as early as the 1640’s how beneficial white slave labor was to the profiting colonial plantations. Slavery was instituted as early as 1627 in the British West Indies. The Calendar of State Papers, Colonial Series of 1701 records 25000 slaves in Barbados in which 21700 were white slaves.

George Downing wrote a letter to the honorable John Winthrop Colonial Governor of Massachusetts in 1645, “planters who want to make a fortune in the West Indies must procure white slave labor out of England if they wanted to succeed.” Lewis Cecil Gray’s History of Agriculture in the Southern United States to 1860 vol.1 pp 316, 318 records Sir George Sandys’ 1618 plan for Virginia, referring to bound whites assigned to the treasurer’s office. “To belong to said office forever. The service of whites bound to Berkeley Hundred was deemed perpetual.”

The Quoke Walker case in Massachusetts 1773 ruled that; slavery contrary to the state Constitution was applied equally to Blacks and Whites in Massachusetts.

Statutes at Large of Virginia, vol. 1 pp. 174, 198, 200, 243 & 306 did not discriminate Negroes in bondage from Whites in Bondage.

Marcellus Rivers and Oxenbridge Foyle, England’s Slaves 1659 consists of a statement smuggled out of the New World and published in London referring to whites in bondage who did not think of themselves as indentured servants but as “England’s Slaves” and “England’s merchandise.”

Colonial Office, Public Records Office, London 1667, no. 170 records that “even Blacks referred to the White forced laborers in the colonies as “white slaves.” Pages 343 through 346 of Historical Sketch of the Persecutions Suffered by the Catholics of Ireland by; Patrick F. Moran refers to the transportation of the Irish to the colonies as the “slave-trade.”

Ulrich B. Phillips, Life and Labor in the Old South explain that white enslavement was crucial to the development of the Negro slave system. The system set up for the white slaves governed, organized and controlled the system for the black slaves. Black slaves were “late comers fitted into a system already developed.” Pp 25-26. John Pory declared in 1619, “white slaves are our principle wealth.”

The above quotations from various authors are just the tip of the iceberg on the white slave trade of the Americas. People from the British Isles were kidnapped, put in chains and crammed into ships that transported hundreds of them at a time.

Their destination was Virginia Boston, New York, Barbados and the West Indies.

The white slaves were treated the same or worse than the black slave.

The white slave did not fetch a good price at the auction blocks. Bridenbaugh wrote in his accounting on page 118, having paid a bigger price for the Negro, the planters treated the black better than they did their “Christian” white servant. Even the Negroes recognized this and did not hesitate to show their contempt for those white men who, they could see, were worse off than themselves.

Governments have allowed this part of American and British history to be swallowed up.

The contemptible black slavery has taken a grip on people associated with American History. Yet, no one will tell of these accountings that are well established on to the middle 1800’s.

Slavery is not something to be proud of but it is a fact that happened to every country, kingdom and empire that has been on this earth.

Each of us needs to search our hearts and find the answer to stop racial hatred.

One place to begin; realize that the black race was not the only race in the last 400 years that was in bondage.

Cosatu condemns Israel: pot calling kettle black

from Johann @ The Right Perspective

The Congress of South African Trade Unions have called the Israeli air raids into Gaza “criminal”. COSATU want the South African government to break diplomatic ties with “Apartheid Israel” and is also calling for sanctions to be instituted against it.

Mainstream media, or the “ministry of lies” as the great Frank from Queens calls them, obviously fall over their own feet to broadcast their version of the truth, burning into our minds the images of wounded Palestine children being carried to hospital. Civilians are being shown as bearing the brunt of Israel’s “illegal” policy of “collective punishment”.

Don’t blink, or you’ll miss the Muslim Judicial Council (MJC), Media Review Network (MRN) and other South African Islamic groups jumping on the bandwagon.

COSATU have criticised the “balanced approach” of the South African government towards Israel and Palestine. They are told to learn lessons from the Apartheid struggle in South Africa. Policies developed in this era need to be drastically changed and South Africans have to boycott Israeli goods, since support for Israel is now proclaimed to be an “apartheid” action.

I have a few questions for these intellectuals based in that hub of crime, corruption, racial hatred, incompetence, anti-white hate speech and idiocy, to the rest of the world known as post-apartheid South Africa:

1) These air raids into Gaza - were they a retaliation of some sort, or did these Israelis just decide on some sunny day that this sounds like something to keep them busy with for a while?

2) Did the thought ever cross your mind (and I am making some assumptions here) that somewhere there are some Israeli children being carried to hospital?

3) Explain to me the concept of Israeli attacks being illegal and criminal, but the same actions from Palestine not being. Provided of course your answer to my first question wasn’t “just some sunny day”.

4) How come, whatever your answer to question 1 was (and sorry folks, this really isn’t a trick question), you call the actions of Israel illegal and criminal, but your big, fat, senile brother across the Limpopo border can exterminate a whole tribe, kill his own people due to utter incompetence over decades which resulted in a total breakdown of infrastructure and bash in the heads of his opposition party members and STILL he isn’t classed as a criminal in your books?

5) Exactly how are you qualified to categorise the actions of the Israeli nation as criminal? Is it because you yourself are so experienced at being criminal? I am just asking based on your wonderful track record and also that of your “brothers” in the ANC and the SA Communist Party. And please don’t tell me it is one of those cases where the Tripartite Alliance is neither tripartite nor an alliance - you can’t use this relationship when it suits you and hide it in the toilet when it is an embarrassment. Oh well, of course you can, but I don’t accept it - neither does any person with an IQ slightly higher than that of a carrot.

6) To these “religion of peace” supporters I actually have a statement rather than a question. You don’t qualify to call any other entity “criminal” or “illegal”. Not when you murder when it suits you in the name of your peaceful religion. You lost me at “hello”.

7) Even if you have by some miraculous sequence of celestial events managed to convince yourself that action against Israel is warranted, i.e. the policy changes and sanctions, how do you intend to convince the lesser carrots amongst us to authorise such actions when you veto every action demanded by those same lesser carrots against that dictator Mugabe? You see, the problem with dealing with lesser carrots is that they actually remember what happened the day before yesterday. Bummer, isn’t it?

And no, the title of my post really does not have any racial connotation to it. Just accept that from a lesser carrot.

Pretoria protest turns violent

from News24

Some 50 Schubart Park flats residents were arrested on Thursday after service delivery protests at the block of flats in Pretoria turned violent, Gauteng police said.

Police spokesperson Captain Dumisani Ndlazi said the protest began at 11:00 and involved all the residents. Apparently there was no water or electricity at the flats for the last three days.

Residents threw bottles and stones at the police. They also burnt dustbins and tyres in the middle of the street.

Police had to fire rubber bullets to disperse the crowd.

"The only way to get order was to use rubber bullets," said Ndlazi.

He said one woman was taken to hospital after being "traumatised".

Those arrested were expected to appear in court on Monday.

Tutu accuses South Africa over Mugabe

from BBC

Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Archbishop Desmond Tutu has accused South Africa of losing the moral high ground by failing to stand up to Zimbabwe's president Robert Mugabe.

The Nobel Peace Prize winner told the BBC that using force should be an option to get rid of Mr Mugabe.

South Africa's African National Congress (ANC) leader Jacob Zuma has also called for a quick end to what he describes as an "untenable' situation.

And the UK foreign secretary described Mr Mugabe a "stain" on Zimbabwe.

'Deeply distressed'

Archbishop Tutu also said he was saddened that his own country appeared not to be on the side of Zimbabweans.

He said: "How much more suffering is going to make us say 'No we have given Mr Mugabe enough time?'"

South Africa had a leadership role as its president chairs the Southern African Development Community, he added.

But he told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that South Africa had instead betrayed its legacy by blocking firmer action from the United Nations.

He added: "I want to say first of all that I have been very deeply disappointed, saddened by the position that South Africa has taken at the United Nations Security Council in being an obstacle to the Security Council dealing with that matter.

"And I have to say that I am deeply, deeply distressed that we should be found not on the side of the ones who are suffering. I certainly am ashamed of what they've done in the United Nations.

"For the world to say 'no, we are waiting for South Africa's membership of the Security Council to lapse and then we can take action'."

Descent into chaos

The archbishop said the situation was an "awful indictment" to a country that had a "proud record of a struggle against a vicious system".

He said: "We should have been the ones who for a very long time occupied the moral high ground. I'm afraid we have betrayed our legacy."

Mr Miliband was responding to a Times leading article that said the Foreign Office believed it would be a mistake for Britain to get tough with Mr Mugabe.

In his letter to the newspaper, the foreign secretary reaffirmed the UK's view that Mr Mugabe had to go.

"Any sane person realises that Mugabe's misrule is only spurring Zimbabwe's descent into chaos," he wrote.

"But your leading article channelled frustration at his continued abuse of power into an attack on the FCO [Foreign and Commonwealth Office] without logic, fact or justification."

Mr Miliband added: "As long as Mugabe rules Zimbabwe he remains a stain on that country. I acknowledge that he is also a stain on the international community, which has not been able to deliver the will of the Zimbabwean people.

"If attacking the FCO would help a single Zimbabwean I would understand that might be a price worth paying. But it does not."

In his Christmas message, ANC leader Mr Zuma said: "The new year must bring a speedy resolution to this utterly untenable situation."

The United Nations meanwhile says it might take up to six months to control Zimbabwe's cholera outbreak, which has now killed 1,174 people.

Unicef spokesman Roeland Monasch said the number of cholera cases had now increased to nearly 24,000, spreading to all 10 of Zimbabwe's provinces.

Mr Monasch said 5% of cases were proving fatal, a very high rate compared with other cholera outbreaks.

Farm murder No 3017

from Doberman @ I Luv SA blog

This weekend the wife of a game farm owner was viciously murdered in her home in the Blaauwbank area, near Randfontein on the West Rand.

The body of Sandy Gordon, 56, was found on her kitchen floor at about 16:00 on Friday afternoon.

Her hands had been tied with electrical cables and a cable had presumably been used to strangle her.

Her husband, Frank, 58, an African art expert and collector, was in Johannesburg on business at the time of the attack.

Husband 'too shocked'
Upon his arrival on the farm, he was met by his neighbour, Johan Swart, and hordes of policemen who were already investigating the scene of the murder.

The police said a post-mortem had been performed on Monday to determine the cause of Sandy's death.

"At present we can't speculate about the cause, and the investigation continues. "It could take up to six weeks or longer for the post-mortem results to come," said police spokesperson Captain Appel Ernst.

The police are still trying to establish how the attackers could have taken Sandy by surprise inside the house, because the entire game farm is fenced with a "good" electrical fence.

Frank was still too deeply shocked to make a statement to the police. He is said to have been hospitalised for shock at the weekend.

Sandy's murder elicited widespread reaction from the community.
"South Africa is a paradise for criminals!" said Edwin Rowles, chairperson of a neighbourhood watch for the Rikasrus, Vleikop, Dannydale and Blaauwbank smallholdings.

The owners of smallholdings are planning a demonstration in the new year because their appeals to the local police have been falling on deaf ears.

Crime pays
"We've had four meetings with the police. Lovely promises were made, but nothing has come of it," Rowles told Beeld.

"Who says crime doesn't pay? It's the highest paying industry in the country.

"If a criminal is caught, he is protected by the government, the state supplies a free lawyer or advocate that is paid with the taxpayer's money."

Proud to be white, or racist?

You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us.
But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug-dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist.

I am proud.
But you call me a racist.
Why is it that only whites can be racists ?

ANC's Zuma is suing cartoonist

from South Africa Sucks


African National Congress (ANC) president Jacob Zuma is suing Jonathan Shapiro, the Sunday Times and its holding company for R7-million over a controversial cartoon published earlier this year, the Times reported on Thursday.

In the cartoon, Shapiro, who uses the pen name Zapiro, portrayed Zuma unbuckling his belt as he prepares to rape the figurative Lady Justice.

She is held down by Zuma allies Julius Malema, Gwede Mantashe, Blade Nzimande and Zwelinzima Vavi.

Mantashe eggs Zuma on: “Go for it, boss!”

While Zuma’s allies claimed the cartoon was intended to project the ANC president as a rapist — even though Zuma was acquitted of rape in 2006 — Shapiro said the central meaning of the cartoon was “incredibly clear”.

“It showed Jacob Zuma, with the help of his political allies, threatening and intimidating the judiciary to try to manipulate the courts for him to be exonerated and escape going on trial [for corruption], thus paving the way for Zuma to become president,” said Shapiro.

He said he used Lady Justice to represent the South African judicial system, adding that the figure is recognised as a symbol of justice the world over.

In the letter of demand served on Shapiro, Zuma threatens to take the award-winning cartoonist to court if he does not pay him R7-million within 14 days.

“The publication of the aforesaid cartoon has injured our client in his dignity and reputation and as a result thereof he has suffered damages in the amount of R7-million,” reads the letter.

Afrikaners: ruling party is destroying South Africa with their greed, malice

from I Luv SA blog

Afrikaners across the entire political spectrum, from famous left-wing dissident author Breyten Breytenbach to the only parliamentarian of the conservative Freedom Front opposition party, warn that the ruling ANC is plunging South Africa into civil war.

Under ANC-governance, they all say, the ANC-party leadership has descended into habitual human rights violations, self-enrichment, racist hate-speech -- and have even drawn up laws to block the country's small while minority from accessing the labour market, plunging one-third of the Afrikaner nation into homelessness, hunger and poverty. Its failing hegemony is leading to civil war. Breytenbach warns his fellow South Africans to leave the country. The Freedom Front warns that the entire electorate is facing unprecedented hunger, massive unemployment, a polluted environment and two killer diseases South Africans refer to as 'Turbo-Aids" - the co-infection of AIDS and Extremely Drug Resistant Tuberculosis which has already infected at least 6-million working-age young people, mostly blacks.

The ANC leadership, concluded the left-wing dissident poet Breytenbach and the right-wing parliamentarian Pieter Mulder, the first speaking in New York, the other in Pretoria, have over the past 15 years done nothing to uplift the population. Instead, the ANC-leadership engaged in an grotesque orgy of self-enrichment and have totally ignored the needs of their electorate. A similar warning was also issued last week by the country's last Afrikaner president, Nobel Peace laureate Frederick de Klerk.
Within 15 years of ANC-hegemony, the Afrikaner minority warns, their country has been plunged in very rapid impoverishment for all races, unprecedented widespread hunger which is affecting many millions according to Operation Hunger, the SA Red Cross and Solidarity Trade Union, including 1-million whites.

Leave the country, Breytenbach warns
The internationally celebrated dissident author Breyten Breytenbach -- who was imprisoned by the apartheid-regime -- this week wrote a scathing article in Harper's Magazine advising fellow South Africans to leave the country - it's just become too dangerous. Breytenbach now divides his time between New York, where he teaches creative writing at New York University and the Goree Institute in Senegal.

Relentless, mindless hatespeech and violence; self-enrichment by senior ANC's
He chose the -- to Afrikaners - historically important date of December 16 to launch a scathing attack on ANC-hegemony in his hard-hitting article and in a radio interview on the same day this was published with "Democracy Now' in New York - warning that the current black-majority government had totally failed all of the country's citizens. He writes in his article, "Mandela's Smile: notes on South Africa's failed revolution," see that 'the relentless, mindless violence, nepotism and corruption are the sources of South Africa's shame.'

Breytenbach was born in Bonnievale, about 180km outside of Cape Town, and his work includes the book, The True Confessions of an Albino Terrorist, in which he describes aspects of his imprisonment by the apartheid state. And even though his brother Jan Breytenbach headed up the country's anti-terrorism unit at the time, the majority of the close-knit Afrikaners, often referred to as the White Tribe of Africa, are not overly fond of their most celebrated poet, many viewing him as a sellout of his nation for siding with the exiled ANC during apartheid.

More houses were built for the poor under apartheid than now...
In his radio interview, listen to it here he said: 'Critical institutions have practically imploded under our national health system, to some extent our educational system, certainly our security system. "... more houses were built for the poor under apartheid than by the new government ... and a lot of this failure must be brought to the door of responsibility of those in power within the ANC. There's been a very rapid self-promotion and self-enrichment, quite obscenely so, by a handful of black senior leaders, while millions of poor blacks were excluded and their misery ignored.'
"Rural areas are war zones..."


Breytenbach was particularly appalled by South Africa's violent crime rate - the world's highest.
"The situation is that we have an average of 55 murders (and 35 culpible homicides) a day. We have something like 150 women being raped each day. "Rural areas (mostly populated by Afrikaner farmers and their workers) have become war zones, as have urban areas, with organised hijacking and widespread police repression."


3,025 white farmers murdered since 1994...More than 3,025 white farmers have already been murdered in attacks on their homestead by heavily-armed youth militias - see some of their names here.

This in turn is creating the famine now steadily spreading across South Africa, because the countryside is becoming too unsafe to farm and the ANC has also launched a relentless programme to seperate Afrikaner farmers from their traditional land-ownership. Since only 6 percent of the entire country's total land-surface has ever been suitable for food-production - the farmers now are only able to raise crops on less than one percent of the total land surface. Thus the commercial local food production has also dropped by more than 70% since 1994, and food prices more than tripled over the past two years, food-aid agencies warn.

The ANC-government already feeds more than 1,2-million schoolchildren countrywide in their classrooms -- because their parents can now only afford to buy them one meal a week.
The Afrikaner farmers also warn that things will get even worse because the country also is being overrun by millions of desperately hungry refugees from the rest of Africa. More than half the Zimbabwean and Mozambiquan populations, and several hundred-thousand Somalian refugees, have already moved into South Africa, setting up thousands of unhealthy, crime-ridden, impromptu squatter camps. Due to the lack of reticulated sewerage services, this in turn is also causing dangerous fecal pollution of all the waterways, top water-scientists recently warned. see http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/262981

'My bitter advice ...would be to leave the country...'
While the Harper's article is accessible to subscribers only, news reports on the internet quote Breytenbach suggesting: 'If a young South African were to ask me whether he or she should stay or leave, my bitter advice would be to go. For the foreseeable future now, if you want to live your life to the full, and with some satisfaction and usefulness, and you can stand the loss - then go!"

And the conservative Afrikaners were equally scathing. The Calvinist Afrikaners on the whole are not easily moved into massive public displays of dissent against the State as this is against their religion -- however they show their dissent in other ways except by withholding their vote: this week tens of thousands of Afrikaner families were voting with their feet against the ANC-government, travelling from across the country to commemorate the 170th anniversary of the Blood River at the Voortrekker Monument in Pretoria.

The ANC has renamed this to Afrikaners so important national holiday the day of 'national unity'. The Afrikaners have ignored their dictate this year -- preferring to spend this - to them important -- day at the Voortrekker monument instead. One group also defiantly planted a gigantic Transvaal Boer-Republican flag in the African landscape and issued the warning that they were not as easy to dislodge from the country of their birth as the ANC-regime might believe.

The Afrikaners' conservative parliamentary representative, Dr Piet Mulder of the Freedom Front opposition party, also published their annual report card of ANC-governance a few days earlier.Mulder said the ruling party's governance of the country was even more disastrous than the years before.

The Freedom Front warned the ANC to 'stop dividing the country', pointing out that South Africa was being plunged into widespread political violence which would lead to all-out civil war while the party's fat-cats were fighting over top jobs and threatening to launch a full scale war in its dispute with its break-away faction, which on December 16 also founded a new political party, COPE under the leadership of former ANC freedom fighter Terror Lekota. In protest, the widely read black newspaper Sowetan ran a front-page showing how bitter these leadership rows are now becoming. And other political commentators are also warning that the country is close to civil war, see

Meanwhile the Afrikaners all feel so politically and financially disenfranchised and discriminated against - also with the removal of their language rights in schools, their removal of land-ownership rights and their being barred from the labour market only because they are whites -- that they have joined the Unrepresented Nations' and Peoples' organisation, UNPO in The Hague, The Netherlands.

They became UNPO's 188th members this year. One other southern African minorities have also joined: the Rehoboth Basters of Namibia. UNPO lobbies for the rights of suppressed minorities worldwide --the only requirement for membership is that such minorities do not use violence to reach their political goals (usually this goal is territorial autonomy).
The Freedom Front - as indeed do the Boer-Republican groupings -- all want an autonomous Afrikaner homeland inside South Africa. The Freedom Front is closely alligned with the Afrikaner town Orania in the Northern Cape, which even has its own monetary system and radio station.

ANC score: 22 out of 100 - a dismal failure...
The two Afrikaner leaders who introduced their lastest report card, Dr. Pieter Mulder and Mr Willie Spies, said at their press conference that its membership from all nine provinces had helped draw up the report card for the way the present government was performing. Dr Mulder said these results -- the ANC scored 22 out of 100, a dismal failure -- 'once again emphasize how the present government is failing to serve South Africa'.

The ANC's biggest failure is their near-total failure to combat the out-of-control violent crime epidemic and government-fraud, which together are plunging the once thriving African country into socio-economic chaos and famine. The Afrikaners gave the ANC a score of 1 out of 10, the lowest rating and also scored them lower on education with two out of ten points. On average, the ANC received a very low average of only 22% on their report card this year.

Dr Mulder said the FF Plus remains committed to South Africa which offers a place for all - but Afrikaners feel increasingly threatened and besieged in the country of their birth.
"The ANC has been governing South Africa for nearly 15 years. In this time the party has gone out of its way to further divide South Africans in all possible ways rather than uniting them.

The main problem is the ANC's inability to combat the world's highest violent crime epidemic, Mulder warned.

"Combating crime is the core function of a government. If a government fails in this regard, the state fails.

The latest official government crime statistics -- which are poorly maintained -- indicate that the figure for murder is stands at 38,6 per 100,000 of the population -- whereas the world average is 5 per 100,000.http://www.saps.gov.za

Dr Mulder: "In South Africa the statistics for murder is nearly eight times higher than the world average.

"Armed attacks against families inside their homes have increased by a whopping 38.9%; car-jackings by 4.4%."

"These types of crimes directly threaten the public's lives and all the families and their breadwinners are unsafe inside their own homes, enroute to work and even at school."

"The public can feel at first-hand that this violent crime is still increasing more each year-- and in fact is getting totally out of control, with police now even refusing to assist citizens when they send them distress calls during armed attacks by large, armed militia groups.']
And racism, especially black-against-white (usually Afrikaner-) police officers by black members of the SA Police Service also is a growing source of concern., he warned. Two Afrikaner police officers were even publicly placed on a local ANC-government official's death list in the rural town of Badplaas and their cadres were called upon publicly to go and kill these officers. Black police officers also increasingly act in a racist and prejudiced manner against 'white' people - often refusing to open criminal investigation cases, members tell us.


"The most recent example is where a black police officer had told an Afrikaner victim of a very violent car high-jacking that 'it was time for you whites to f''k off out of the country” (Beeld 7 November 2008).
"Afrikaner police officers, often more experienced and better educated, also are denied promotion within the service based only on their paler skin colour - not on their competency levels. "Increasing racism against white, mostly Afrikaner members of the SAPS lead to these people not being able to function properly and being over-loaded with work of other colleagues who are incompetent," Mulder noted in the report card."


Former Minister Nqakula's refusal to answer several questions of the FF Plus in Parliament, such as for example, how many members of the police were themselves involved in crime, raises the eyebrows and destroys any trust which the public could still have had in the Police. The most controversial and unforgivable policy decision of the ANC with regards to crime was probably the scrapping of the Scorpions special directorate.

The Scorpions were the country's most successful crime fighting unit, responsible for the investigation of the ANC president, Jacob Zuma, as well as the Police Commissioner, Jackie Selebi.

And racism against white parliamentarians have reached a disgraceful level, Mulder pointed out. ANC-parliamentarian Dinkie Doreko even threatened a white opposition parliamentarian with this death-threat gesture photographed in parliament , targeting a member of the Democratic Alliance party -- a gesture for which she was rapped over the fingers by the SA Human Rights Commission, but not by her own leaders. see

UN chief deplores Mugabe position

from BBC

UN chief Ban Ki-Moon has said his organisation can do little to help Zimbabwe because of its leaders' refusal to allow it to mediate.

Zimbabwe's cholera epidemic was only the most visible manifestation of a wider crisis, Mr Ban told a session of the Security Council.

The UN says 978 people have been killed by cholera, a 25% increase on the last figure given just days ago.

Talks between the government and opposition are meanwhile deadlocked.

The Security Council was holding its first discussions on Zimbabwe since July.

UK Foreign Secretary David Miliband described Mr Ban's closed-door briefing on the situation in Zimbabwe as "devastating".

The meeting ended without agreement on a motion to censure Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, which a diplomat present said was due to opposition from South Africa.

'Failure to act'

Discussing stalled power-sharing talks in Zimbabwe, Mr Ban said neither the country's government nor the Southern African Development Community (SADC) - which is mediating the talks - welcomed a political role for the UN.

"We continue to witness a failure of the leadership in Zimbabwe to address the political, economic, human rights and humanitarian crisis that is confronting the country and to do what is best for the people of Zimbabwe," he said.

"The current cholera epidemic is only the most visible manifestation of a profound multi-sector crisis, encompassing food, agriculture, education, health, water, sanitation and HIV/Aids."

After disputed presidential elections in March, Mr Mugabe's Zanu PF party and the opposition Movement for Democratic Change agreed to form a power-sharing government.

But implementation of that agreement, reached in September, has been dogged by disagreements over whose supporters would get key ministries.

In the Security Council's debate on Zimbabwe in July, Russia and China vetoed an attempt by Western countries to impose sanctions on Mr Mugabe, saying Zimbabwe's difficulties were an internal matter, says the BBC's UN correspondent Laura Trevelyan.

But while there is much greater concern about the country now, divisions remain, our correspondent says, and Zimbabwe's descent into chaos continues.

'Real disease'

The UN's Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs (Ocha) said on Monday Zimbabwe's worst cholera-hit area was the capital, Harare, with 208 confirmed deaths and 8,454 suspected cases.

David Miliband: 'We heard a devastating report from the secretary general'

With the UN warning that up to 60,000 people could become infected if the outbreak is not contained, the South African Red Cross issued an appeal for funds to treat 30,000 people.

Mr Miliband said that while cholera was making the headlines, Zimbabwe's real disease was "the disease of misrule and corruption" under Robert Mugabe.

Zimbabwe's president said last Thursday the cholera outbreak had been contained, and accused Western powers, including Great Britain, of using the outbreak as a pretext to invade the country and overthrow him.

Zimbabwe has also accused its neighbour Botswana of being involved in a plot to overthrow Mr Mugabe's government and hosting military training camps for opposition rebels.

Botswana, whose President Ian Khama is one of the few African leaders to have publicly criticised Mr Mugabe, denies the claims.

ANC undermines rule of law - Lekota

from IOL

COPE President Mosioua Lekota on Tuesday accused the ANC of undermining the rule of law and said, in a veiled reference to Jacob Zuma, that nobody facing criminal charges should become the leader of a democratic nation.

"The ANC is not committed to equality before the law," he said in response to a question from a German reporter about the differences between Cope and the ruling party.

"In Germany, in a democratic country, there will be mayhem if you are saying the things these people are saying. In your country there is no president facing charges."

Lekota added that the ANC, which he left in late October to form COPE, was like the apartheid regime before it, "putting lackeys into the judiciary to undermine the rule of law".

"This is sufficient for us to part ways," he said. - Sapa

Top UK Islamic cleric brands Christmas as evil

from Fire Base America

-by Murray Wardrop

Fiery UK Islamic cleric Anjem Choudary who had recently called for war within the UK, has now come out against the holiday of Christmas. He has stated that those celebrating Christmas will burn in hell as Christmas contradicts Islam. I would like to thank this man for showing us the true face of Islam. Because apparently anything that is fun or anything that non-Muslims do is against Islam. muslim preacher Anjem Choudary has branded Christmas "evil" in a sermon posted on the internet. The lawyer, who recently praised the Mumbai terror attacks, urged all muslims to reject traditional Christmas celebrations, claiming that they are forbidden by allah.

The 41-year-old shocked Christians and even those of his own faith by branding yuletide festivities as "the pathway to hellfire". Choudary, who is chairman of the Society of Muslim Lawyers, ruled out all celebrations, including having a Christmas tree, decorating the house or eating turkey. In the sermon posted on an islamic website, he said: "In the world today many Muslims, especially those residing in western countries, are exposed to the evil celebration Christmas."

"Many take part in the festival celebrations by having Christmas turkey dinners. Decorating the house, purchasing Christmas trees or having Christmas turkey meals are completely prohibited by Allah. Many still practise this corrupt celebration as a remembrance of the birth of Jesus."

"How can a Muslim possibly approve or participate in such a practice that bases itself on the notion Allah has an offspring? The very concept of Christmas contradicts and conflicts with the foundation of Islam."

"Every muslim has a responsibility to protect his family from the misguidance of Christmas, because its observance will lead to hellfire. Protect your Paradise from being taken away – protect yourself and your family from Christmas."

Choudary is Principal Lecturer at the London School of Shari'ah and a follower of the islamist militant leader Omar Bakri Mohammed.



-Omar Bakri Mohammed (L) and Abu Hamza

Earlier this year, Choudary led a meeting at the heart of the area where the liquid bombers lived, which warned of a British September 11.

The Politically Correct Elitist Left-wing Liberal Handbook

 

The Politically Correct Elitist Leftwing Liberal Handbook

Our Hallowed Sixty-Six Commandments

  1. You have to believe that the AIDS virus is spread by a lack of federal funding.
  2. You have to believe that the same teacher who can't teach 4th graders how to read is somehow qualified to teach those same kids about sex.
  3. You have to believe that guns in the hands of law-abiding Americans are more of a threat than U.S. nuclear weapons technology in the hands of Chinese and North Korean communists.
  4. You have to believe that there was no art before federal funding.
  5. You have to believe that global temperatures are less affected by cyclical, documented changes in the earth's climate, and more affected by soccer moms driving SUVs.
  6. You have to believe that gender roles are artificial, but being gay/lesbian is natural.
  7. You have to be against capital punishment for criminals, even murderers, but support abortion on demand.
  8. You have to believe that businesses create oppression, and governments create prosperity. As a true Elitist Leftwing Liberal you have to believe that no Americans ever lost their jobs or became homeless except during the Reagan and Bush Administrations; these are problems that can be solved only by lotsa money and Liberals in the federal government.
  9. You have to believe that hunters don't care about nature, but loony activists who have never been outside of San Francisco do.
  10. You have to believe that self-esteem is more important than actually doing something to earn it.
  11. You have to believe that the military, not politicians, start wars.
  12. You have to believe the NRA is bad, because it supports certain parts of the Constitution, while the ACLU is good because it supports certain parts of the Constitution.
  13. You have to believe that taxes are too low, but ATM fees are too high.
  14. You have to believe that Margaret Sanger and Gloria Steinem are more important to American history than are Thomas Jefferson, General Robert E. Lee and Thomas Edison.
  15. You have to believe that standardized tests are racist, but racial quotas, preferential treatment and set-asides are not racist.
  16. You have to believe that Hillary Clinton is normal, and really a very nice person even though the electorate outside New York didn't think so.
  17. You have to believe that the only reason socialism and communism haven't worked anywhere it's been tried, is because the right people haven't been in charge. You must also vociferously deny the fact that "Nazi" is an abbreviation for Adolf Hitler's Nationalsozialist party, because Hitler makes socialism look bad, unlike humanitarian socialists like Josef Stalin, Mao Zedong, Fidel Castro, Ho Chi Minh, Pol Pot, Saddam Hussein and a host of other socialists who raped, tortured, maimed and slaughtered their own people in the name of "income redistribution" [ala Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Lyndon Johnson and Barack Hussein Obama], political and economic advancement for the "plight" of the downtrodden.
  18. You have to believe conservatives telling the truth belong in jail, but a draft-dodging liar and sex offender belonged in the White House.
  19. You have to believe that homosexual parades displaying drag, transvestites and bestiality as well as organizations such as NAMBLA (North American Man/Boy Love Association) and other groups that promote paedophilia should be constitutionally protected, but symbols such as the Cross (Crucifix), the Star of David and manger scenes at Christmas should be illegal.
  20. You have to believe that illegal Democratic Party funding by the Chinese government is somehow in the best interests of the United States.
  21. You have to refuse to discuss the issues in a rational manner and whenever someone attempts to do so, throw a 3 ring tantrum, rant and rave, go into a lunatic rage and outshout them (preferably with profanity and name-calling) and stick to personal slurs, smear tactics, slander and building strawmen so you can knock down the strawmen (oops, sorry, strawpersons) and hopefully sidetrack the conversation away from your lack of ability to support your positions or refute the arguments of others. When you can't think of anything plausible to say, and name-calling and personal slurs are no longer working because people with IQs above ginger snaps can see right through such childish tactics, an especially effective prepubescent ploy that will at least convince other Elitist Leftwing Liberals, is to claim your adversaries hate America, or if you're on the cowardly side, indignantly ask them why they hate America even though it's obvious that its the Elitist Leftwing Liberals who hate America and Americans. Uncles Lenin and Stalin always urged us to accuse our adversaries of the very things we're trying to hide. If you repeat this enough times, Elitist Leftwing Liberals will be offering awards - they may not be candy bars, but, you will be sure to win some snickers.
  22. You must always ignore the message and attack the messenger. When stuck, remember the tactic that won't reveal to other Elitist Leftwing Liberals your unwillingness to rebut the issue under discussion or your inability to think or say anything original: smugly change a couple of your adversaries' words, parrot and repeat their comments back to them verbatim and even if it isn't true, by all means always be sure to accuse your opponents of using the very tactics the Elitist Leftwing Liberals try to hide, remembering all the while that Uncle Lenin would be proud as punch.
  23. No matter how credible a source may be - always do your Elitist Leftwing Liberal duty and rabidly claim it's been debunked and discredited and call anyone who believes it "mean spirited", crazy, a Nazi or any other of the monikers from the Elitist Leftwing Liberal grab bag of infantile epithets and sarcastic sobriquets even if you invented your "data" out of thin air or found it on the webpage of some Elitist Leftwing Liberal lemming on the lunatic fringe. See Article #27 for the suggested politically correct buzzwords to use in your tantrums.
  24. Whenever demonstrated facts don't agree with your agenda, twist them and mangle them until you can make them fit into your prejudices, the elitist Leftwing-Liberal mainstream media will assist you greatly.
  25. Once you've told a lie or slandered someone, be sure to repeat it as often as possible until it becomes true. "Members and front organizations must continually embarrass, discredit and degrade our critics. When obstructionists become too irritating, label them as fascist, or Nazi or anti-Semitic .... The association will, after enough repetition, become "fact" in the public mind." [ ~ Communist Party, Moscow Central Committee, 1943] and followed faithfully by the secularist, elitist American mainstream media lemmings in accordance with the precepts established for adherants to the code of conduct for Lenin's "Useful Idiots".
  26. You have to believe that all spirituality and all religions except Islam are bad. Remember, Uncle Karl Marx warned us that, "Religion is the opiate of the people".
  27. You must use the following buzzwords as often as possible without necessarily knowing their definitions: "Nazi", "Hitler", "gestapo", "police state", "police brutality", "totalitarian state", "imperialism", "imperialist", "running dogs of [fill in the blank], "greedy corporations", "shrub", "fascist", "paranoid", "paranoia", "goosestepping", "ruling-class", "class-strife", "class warfare", "stolen election", "unconstitutional", "racist", "entitlements", "hate", "bourgeois" or better yet, "petty bourgeois", "counter-revolutionary", "progressive", "red-baiter", "witch hunt", "inquisition", "anti-Communist", "deviationist", "revisionist", "reactionary", "multiculturalism", "oppressed", "unilateral", "victims of Yankee oppression", "plight of the [fill in the blank] people", "victimhood", "mean-spirited", "McCarthyism", "jingoism", "flag-wavers", "neocons", "alternative(s)", "empowered" and, of course, overuse of the indispensable "F" word.
  28. You have to believe that there were never any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, even though they were used against Iran, the Kurds and the Iraqi people and even though the many Democrats warned us about WMD before the Iraqi invasion: William Jefferson Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Sandy Berger, Madeline Albright, Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, Robert Byrd, Jay Rockefeller, John Kerry, Bob Graham, Ted Kennedy, Representatives Nancy Pelosi and Henry Waxman and vice-president Al Gore to name only the most vociferous.
  29. You have to be a purveyor of perennial pessimism and a dispatcher of doomsday gloom and hyperbolic hysteria whenever you can work some scare tactics into the foreboding warnings of eventual catastrophe at the hands of your adversaries, i.e. people who disagree with you.
  30. Whenever possible, if you hear or read something that seems quite logical and might influence someone against the Elitist Leftwing Liberal viewpoint, be sure to pounce on the exception or some tiny, inconsequential irrelevancy, such as the misspelling, poor punctuation or mispronunciation of a word, unusual facial expression, article of clothing or some morsel of arcane trivia or irrelevant minutiae in an attempt to derail the conversation into petty bickering replete with name-calling and personal slurs. [Use of the "F" word is particularly effective, especially when combined with prepubescent profanity and puerile posturing.]
  31. Always have unkind and accusatory slurs cocked and ready to use regarding any armed forces personnel, especially military people in harm's way other than your own candidates, sell-outs, turncoats, traitors and those who are guilty of or advocate treason. The exception, of course, would be soldiers killed or wounded when a Republican is president - then take an indignant stance and shriek hysterically at the tragedy - don't worry other Elitist Leftwing Liberals will realize your disdain for military people who are characterized favourably when you think it will make conservatives look bad in the eyes of Elitist Leftwing Liberals, the lunatic fringe and the politically illiterate.
  32. When your adversary presents a particularly damning discovery, pervert it, twist it around, fabricate something out of thin air and accuse him of something he didn't say, falsely attribute your invention to him and then proceed to argue against your own creation with the hope nobody will notice. This is best done by beginning your remarks with "Translation:", "hence", or "in other words" or "so what you are suggesting" or "are you saying that..." followed by the most implausible, irrelevant non sequiturs you can fantasize.
  33. You have to remember that nobody but your adversaries, real or imagined are ever to blame for anything and no one should ever be accountable or held responsible for their words or actions - they're just misunderstood or some such sociological mumbo-jumbo. Blaming without offering solutions is the typical modus operandi of Elitist Leftwing Liberals.
  34. Remember our venerated motto: Victimhood is a veritable virtue! You have to be a victim of as many forms of melodrama as possible and be ever vigilant to promote victimization of almost anything and anyone although that's very difficult to reconcile with the assertion that nobody's to blame for anything they do, except, of course, the people who don't agree with you. Whenever you get confused, remember the Double Standard will always come to your rescue when it's difficult to justify victimhood to people who are rational.
  35. You must always have Double Standards, a higher standard that you demand of nations, corporations and individuals you don't like and especially people who don't agree with you - and another set of standards for yourself and your Elitist Leftwing Liberal confederates which is preferably no standards at all.
  36. You must with all your heart and soul hate America and Americans and bash them at every opportunity, while claiming you love America though you contend that American patriots are really traitors. And do remember to accuse people who don't agree with you of being the ones who hate America and Americans. This won't confuse people with IQs above eggplants, but remember some of our best friends are about as intellectually astute as ashtrays. While Elitist Leftwing Liberals hate red-blooded Americans, remember we have blood also and it's always "B Negative".
  37. You must always remember that you are a member of the grown up 4-H and it is incumbent on you to always display their watchwords: hallucinations, hyperbole, hysteria and hate.
  38. Remember to claim that the flag is only a piece of cloth and stands for nothing while you explain how you love America and that's why you howl and hurl hateful epithets regarding America and Americans, especially those who disagree with you.
  39. You are always to belittle and deride concepts such as optimism, patriotism, honour, honesty, faithfulness, fidelity, loyalty, courage, bravery, principles, trust, trustworthiness, reliability, responsibility, respect, common-courtesy, common decency, kindness, Good Samaritanism, sacrifice, patience, fortitude, values, integrity and character as being naive and passe. Call anyone who uses those words, "judgemental" and "intolerant".
  40. You are encouraged to lionize, venerate, yea, worship sloth, lust, self-centeredness, selfishness, instant gratification, slander, criminal behavior, drug addiction, degenerate behaviour, promiscuous sex, lewd remarks and behaviour, rudeness, crudeness, crassness, smutty language and vulgarity of all kinds. You must show disrespect for authority, laws, law enforcement and military while demanding respect for prostitution, drug dealing, gang-bangers, organized crime, pornography and generally everything that would aid in tearing down the social fabric of the United States of America and all she stands for.
  41. Be sure to exhibit incessant anger at America and Americans in general and rage at conservatives, centrists and anyone who doesn't agree with your ideas.
  42. You must be "politically correct" when it suits your purpose and point out that political correctness is a form of freedom rather than more mind-control, but, it's more important to demand that others be "politically correct" than actually follow those demands yourself.
  43. You must always offer praise and/or excuses for all of America's enemies, especially terrorists who aren't really murdering cowards, but, rather multiculturally misunderstood.
  44. You have to believe that just because your candidate lost an election (by all means stomp and shout "election fraud" or "stolen election") or an unacceptable law was passed there's always the possibility of going to court where an Elitist Leftwing Liberal judge is presiding so that you can get your way in spite of the wishes of the electorate and those of their congressional delegates as elections and legislation are more effectively decided by certain judges and their courts than by the voters and their legislatures. But, be sure to stress that you believe in the Constitution and remember to always claim that the candidate, election or law you don't like is unconstitutional. In fact, for argumentation purposes, it's always a good idea to claim that any law or action that doesn't please you is unconstitutional as it's an excellent buzzword and makes you sound like you might know something esoteric. After all, guys like Noam Chomsky and Alan Dershowitz made a career of such tactics.
  45. Whenever someone says something that rubs your prejudgements the wrong way, ignore the contents of the remarks and vilify, defame, malign and slander that person while claiming everything that person has ever said or will ever utter is wrong. You are encouraged to take cheap shots and engage in name-calling and ad hominem attacks, but, above all, if you're a true standard-bearer for the Elitist Leftwing Liberals, avoid discussing issues you can't debate - which are, of course, all of them.
  46. Honour multiculturalism and know its "truths": "Multiculturalism, n. The doctrine that persons of European ancestry are morally inferior to all other human beings." ~ John Derbyshire, inspired by Ambrose Bierce and his Devil's Dictionary.
  47. When confronted with something that is critical of Elitist Leftwing Liberals, read or listen to one or two lines and jump to conclusions (it's the best exercise many Elitist Leftwing Liberals get) that the beginning was awful (meaning it might ask an Elitist Leftwing Liberal to actually think or to look at Elitist Leftwing Liberals in an uncomplimentary light) - and claim you didn't bother to read the rest or listen to the remainder all the while claiming to be open-minded.
  48. You must take it as your sworn duty to do your utmost to prevent people from printing, voicing, writing or otherwise disseminating any communication which is either unfavourable to or not in agreement with Elitist Leftwing Liberal dogma and you must also strictly enforce Political Correctness, while at the same time doing your best to muzzle and silence those who don't agree with you. Tell adversaries to "Do as I say, and I'll do as I please!" This is not censorship, hypocrisy or Double Standards, but rather, "Freedom of Speech" an important Constitutional Amendment written to give Elitist Leftwing Liberals their God-given rights, even if they renounce and don't believe in God and even if they think rights are only for Elitist Leftwing Liberals.
  49. If you don't agree with the points of others, under no circumstances should you present a rational counter argument or discuss the issue itself when it is much more effective to call people liars and cast aspersions on their veracity. This is also effective if a person makes a mistake, don't overlook or excuse the error or admit there was a possibility of a mistake - call them liars ferociously, unless it's a petty sideline mistake that will help you construct smoke and mirrors, in that case see Article #30 above.
  50. Conservatives suggest that people should "hate the sin, love the sinner". Remember, as an Elitist Leftwing Liberal you must always hate the sinner [person or corporation who doesn't agree with you] and love the sin as all sins are "relative" and finding anything wrong with them is "judgemental". This may be difficult to grasp at first glance since Elitist Leftwing Liberals don't believe in "sin" [unless it's being applied via Double Standard, see Article #35, toward corporations or people who don't agree with Elitist Leftwing Liberals] except for hypocrisy which is the only sin, when applied to our opponents and is one of the most effective slurs in our arsenal. See Article #54
  51. You must never be willing to take the consequences of your own actions or words or expect your confederates to do the same as long as you can unjustly lay the blame on someone else. But, of course, it is critical that you demand that people who don't agree with your ideas be held to strict adherence of taking the consequences of their actions: See Article #35 above regarding nurturing our trademark: Double Standards.
  52. When asked to "cite" or give citations, sources or support for your propaganda, you can do one of 4 things: Use secondary sources which supposedly give "expert" Elitist Leftwing Liberal opinion on the primary sources when they're not ignoring them, taking phrases out of context, twisting their words or perverting their meaning; make an official-looking, bogus website (provided you know someone who knows how to make one and is also literate enough to write without a spell check) with the fake "facts" you've presented; refer them to a propaganda site that may or may not support your claims or the fourth and preferred solution is to give them the URL of an official or universally accepted website and claim vehemently that the so-called information you've invented, created or faked is from that website though anyone who looks won't find it there.
  53. Remember, "A liberal is someone who feels a great debt to his fellow man, which debt he proposes to pay off with your money." ~ G. Gordon Liddy
  54. You have to support and promote socialized medicine as "Socialized medicine is based on the belief that, while individual bankruptcy by medical bills is tragic and wicked, bankrupting the entire country is beneficial and noble." ~ Nicolas Martin ["If you think health care is expensive now, wait 'til you see how much it costs when it's free." ~ P. J. O'Rourke]
  55. When your adversaries make statements that ring true, seem logical or appear to have merit, ask them completely irrelevant non sequitur questions in an attempt to evade the issue and derail the conversation. If that doesn't work, announce with all due grandiosity that your opponents refuse to answer your questions or give cites, therefore, they cannot support their assertions. This ploy of course won't work with people who can think, but, it will bring Elitist Leftwing Liberals and the lunatic fringe out of the woodwork to jump on your bellicose, bungling bandwagon.
  56. You must always vociferously and incessantly point out that the reason any conservative's failing is always major news is that it allows liberals to engage in their very favourite taunt: "Hypocrisy!" Hypocrisy is the only sin that really inflames us Elitist Leftwing Liberals and, of course, only applies to others because Liberals can always invoke the time-honoured Double Standard. Inasmuch as Elitist Leftwing Liberals have no moral principles, we can sit back, march, or otherwise create a ruckus as we criticize other people for failing to meet the standards that liberals simply renounce. It's an intriguing strategy. By openly admitting to being philanderers, draft dodgers, liars, weasels and cowards, liberals avoid ever being hypocrites. Remember, admission that morals and ethics are passe always gets you off the hook - but, do not hesitate to point out the immorality or unethical behaviour of people who don't agree with Elitist Leftwing Liberals.
  57. Remember, as a cheerleader for decadence, when any despot, criminal or maniac is treated in any way differently from the way he treated others, it's your sworn duty to scream to the heavens that he isn't being treated with dignity and is being embarrassed in spite of the fact he may have raped, tortured, maimed and slaughtered others; as an Elitist Leftwing Liberal you must remain silent about the victims of despots, criminals and maniacs. The victims got what they deserved and despots, criminals and maniacs are to be honoured, lionized, venerated and if they're bad enough, worshipped.
  58. As an Elitist Leftwing Liberal, you must believe that all America foreign policy must have the unanimous approval of France, Russia, Syria, Cuba, North Korea, Communist China and the United Nations.
  59. You must learn to be agile at pulling the old Elitist Leftwing Liberal Switcheroo. Naturally in normal discourse, you must incessantly and nauseatingly bash your country, slur and slander the founding fathers and American institutions like the police, FBI, CIA, etc., calling them terrorists and murderers, disparage all religions except Islam, denounce all military institutions and personnel, chide all people who have moral convictions and on and on [See articles 1-58]; but, remember, when trying to win a petty bickering match, employ the Elitist Leftwing Liberal Switcheroo - which means dropping your old mantras and bromides and immediately feigning to embrace your opponents' views momentarily while you don the mask of reverence for those you hate, but are aware that your adversaries admire. This is particularly effective when showing mock concern for American armed services personnel who are in harms' way under an administration that doesn't have Elitist Leftwing Liberal Lemming approval. If you are successful enough in public discourse and if you exhibit it with enough ferocity and frequency, you may be eligible to win a toaster from The Elitist Leftwing Liberal Liberty Lobby.
  60. As an Elitist Leftwing Liberal, you must be like a feminist bookstore in that you have no humour department, therefore display no sense of humour while making zero effort to distinguish between serious commentary and obvious humour, satire, and sarcasm. It helps clarify the profile of Elitist Leftwing Liberals.
  61. As an Elitist Leftwing Liberal, you must shout "Hypocrite" and "Hypocrisy" whenever your fantasies indicate that an adversary accepts the entirety of a political party, political administration or political philosophy. If the person purports to have any disagreements with that political party, political administration or political philosophy, maliciously call them "Hypocrites" while foaming at the mouth, gnashing your teeth, beating your breasts and tearing your hair. It's the Elitist Leftwing Liberal Catch-22 where you are going to brand them "Hypocrites" no matter what they say or do. After all, "Hypocrite" is our favourite word and the only sin we recognize - in others, of course.
  62. You must always be conscious of Political Correctness. "'You're not allowed to call them dinosaurs anymore.' said Yo-less. 'It's speciesist. You have to call them pre-petroleum persons.'" ~ Terry Pratchett
  63. Remember, one of the Elitist Leftwing Liberal hallmarks is to try to instil fear and use whatever scare tactics are available. This in conjunction with doomsday prophecies, perennial pessimism and hopelessness, real or imagined, will hopefully amplify the fear in others. "Collective fear stimulates herd instinct, and tends to produce ferocity toward those who are not regarded as members of the herd." ~ Bertrand Russell
  64. Whenever someone offers documentation and/or legal proof, one effective method of obfuscation is to claim the documents, certificates, court orders or whatever were forged, fraudulent, fake and/or fudged. The same thing can be done when someone offers proof of candidates' popularity because they were elected to offices - you can merely spare the gore and claim the election was rigged and the rightful candidate was robbed. Remember Uncle Joe's Maxim: "Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything." ~ Josef Stalin. Poor Uncle Joe didn't know about using the courts to circumvent legislation and elections.
  65. You should always insist that the Holy Bible must never be read in schools - even by students who get free condoms (though not only can the Holy Bible be burned - such activities are encouraged by "secular progressives", i.e. assorted Marxists, Leninists, communists, nutters and fruit cakes) but, The Holy Bible is acceptable reading in penitentiaries and offered to people testifying in courts, who are asked to swear on the Holy Bible, though the Bible's "Ten Commandments" cannot be displayed, by court order, at American courthouses. Praise Marx, Lenin, the American Communist Party and its "underground" (cool word from the 60's, eh?) the A.C.L.U.
  66. You, as an Elitist Leftwing Liberal, have to believe that all of the above is part of a vast right wing conspiracy.

Remember that in order for us to coerce loyalty we must levy severe warnings that failure to adhere strictly to the demands presented in this consecrated manifesto is considered HERESY and could result in your not receiving invitations to important Elitist Leftwing Liberal functions such as homosexual marriages, ritual flag burnings, tossing medals (yours or anyone else's) onto the White House lawn and/or marching in "Free Saddam Hussein" & "Free Osama bin Laden" protest rallies while wearing official footwear: John Kerry Flip-Flops and/or Barack Hussein Obama Flip-Flops.

"No amount of money, influence, persuasion or words can possibly paint Elitist Leftwing Liberals in a worse light than they gladly portray themselves!" ~ Keith Martin
