What has anger achieved?


I am so disgusted with this whole AWB – Malema affair, that I can hardly find words to describe how I feel. At this point in time there seems to be way too much anger, hatred, disrespect, and a whole lot of uncertainty floating around from all angles and all directions. If this carries on for any longer, then I am going to seriously consider closing down this blog. The last thing I need right now is to be accused of instigating hatred, or even worse, --- that I am encouraging a race war!

Since starting this blog in December 2008 I’ve received a few threats, which I have not taken very seriously. In the current unstable climate however, with emotions running higher than usual, I’ve suddenly realized that I need to watch my back. I’ve also been called all sorts of names, ranging from, -- “You’re a racist pig!” to “You’re a hypocrite!” Here’s a recent one I’ve decided to keep on the blog, just for the record!

Is EVERYONE really angry, or are we simply being hoodwinked into believing this?

There’s no doubt that a large number of folk in this country are really very upset right now, and I genuinely believe that many, especially those who have lost loved ones in the ongoing genocide perpetrated by the black savages, have every reason to feel extremely angry. No one deserved to die in the manner Eugène Terre'Blanche did, and the fact that certain black people happily celebrated his death, has also made me feel very angry indeed.

Some people like Malema are always angry. I think he was born that way! His outburst the other day when he humiliated a BBC journalist in public was a perfect example of how nasty he can get. BUT, Malema does not represent the entire nation of black youth in this country! In fact, there are 1000’s of black people in this country who also think the man is an idiot. For obvious reasons their views seldom get published in the MSM.

Most members of the AWB have been angry since the day the organisation was born in 1973. What has their anger achieved since then? – Absolutely nothing! Although I’ve heard that more than 3000 new members have recently signed up, after their leader was murdered, the organisation’s numbers still DO NOT represent the majority white Afrikaners living in this country. There’s talk in the media that the AWB wants to avenge the death of Eugène Terre'Blanche, but I really doubt whether people with this attitude actually represent the true wishes of the majority AWB members!

I happen to be friends with many AWB members. Many of these members come from my ‘Afrikaans’ mother’s side of the family. They are decent God-fearing people. Most of them are hardworking farmers who understand the Blackman’s mind far better than the average city-dwelling whitey (stadsjapie). I have spent much time with this side of my family, and although they’ve also expressed their disgust in the way things are going at present, I have never heard them express any desires to go to war, or to start killing people.

On Wednesday this week I attended a funeral at Hartbeespoort. An old family relative of mine had finally lost the her fight with cancer. About 80 percent of the men-folk present at the funeral were members of the AWB. Two of the mourners present were black woman, and one of them was honoured with the task of helping the men carry the coffin to the grave. (This was the first time that I’ve ever seen a woman carry a coffin, nevermind a black woman!) Everyone present at the funeral showed their final respect in a civilized manner. During the entire proceeding, at the church, at the graveyard, and later back at the church where refreshments were served, there was no talk of revenge or hatred as a result of their leader’s recent murder.

Now let’s briefly examine the manner in which Eugène Terre'Blanche’s funeral was run.

His family specifically asked people not to wave flags during the proceedings, but yet these requests were blatantly ignored. Granted, --- emotions must have been running really high, and not everyone got the message sent out by the family. Nonetheless, a funeral is supposed to be an orderly sacred affair where people gather quietly to show their final respects to the departed.

It was obvious that a certain element in the AWB ranks chose to use the event for their own selfish rewards, and to show the entire world how angry and upset they were. Their behaviour showed little respect for their leader. It was this same mentality that caused the fiasco back in 1994 in Bophuthatswana when a small group of angry AWB supporters decided to ‘invade’ the place. A reasonably accurate and unbiased report concerning the Bophuthatswana coup can be viewed here.

The bottom line is that we have extremists (people who hate) on both ends of the spectrum. Both sides have their own unique reasons why they feel that way, BUT in my opinion it has become a smouldering compost heap, – a murky mixture consisting mainly of a black-coloured catalyst, -- namely the ANCYL! The stench has become unbearable, but when you look at the compost heap from a different angle, you realize that in reality it consists of a handful of aggrieved radicals who are crying out for attention.

The black radicals on Malema’s side (the future leaders of this country – God help us!) far outnumber the militant whites in this country, but yet those who speak of revenge and war are so blinded with rage that they don’t see this. The compost heap needs a good dose of water to cool the heat. I believe Malema's mistreatment of a BBC journalist, which was broadcast all over the world, has just done the trick. Hopefully there will be some more cold water on its way soon!

The Bang-Bang Club: Snapshots from a Hidden War

In this powerful book, the two surviving members of a group of four young photographers, Greg Marinovich and Joao Silva, tell the story of " The Bang Bang Club", a nickname given to them by the South African international press for the fearless and sometimes reckless extremes they went to in order to capture the violent images of war on film.

Since ET's death I took the trouble to educate myself about the AWB.
I read their website and can find no reference to rage, hate or violence.

Certainly their past history was very much a case of a reckless bull in a china shop. Those that did transgress the law were duly apprehended, charged and served time through the due process of law.

If their party was registered in the UK they would be considered Nationalists just like the SNP and Plaid Cymru the Welsh nationalists. Yet they are described as Right Wing Racists, Facists and Neo-Nazis. Ironically the colours of Manchester United and Saracens rugby Club are also red, white and black yet these labels are not attached to them.

ET's only crime was that he boldly stated what he believed in and unfortunately wrapped it up in quasi-military imagery. In truth, a breath of fresh air compared to the sanitised mediocrity of UK politicians

Of course Malema and the ANCYL are free to do the same and the pc-left-wing-liberal UK media do not say a word against their revolutionary darlings.

The Truth will emerge in due course.

@ Concerned South African,

I am also clueless as to what exactly is going on with the mysasuck blog. I am monitoring the situation and wil keep people posted via this blog. Just bare in mind that I’m not on a PC 24 hours a day, and the chances are good that some other blog will probably be reporting on the situation before I can.

Operation Vula, its Secret Safari, and Zuma’s band of comrades - Dec. 2013
During 1986 the ANC launched an underground operation called Operation Vula. A lesser-known fact is that it continued to operate after Nelson Mandela's release in February 1990, and for three years after his speech in August 1990 when he reiterated the total commitment of the ANC, Umkhonto we Sizwe and the SACP to the Groote Schuur Minute.

Heritage Day Photographs (Voortrekker Monument) - Sept. 2013
This posting includes a few photographs taken on Heritage Day 2013. The posting introduces an unusual but beautiful new structure called QUO VADIS? (with the question mark) which I’m sure many readers have never heard of.

The Yellow-Bucket Marula Tree: A Mystery Solved! - Oct. 2013
I came across a rather strange phenomenon one day while travelling along the R561 route between Tolwe and Baltimore in the Limpopo province of South Africa. A small yellow bucket was attached high-up in a branch of a Marula tree, hence the name of this posting. It’s a real funny story which I’m sure most readers will enjoy - as much as I enjoyed compiling the article  - (with illustrations).

Pretoria’s Monument for Victims of Terrorism - July 2013
Many people (including myself) had almost forgotten about a noteworthy monument in Pretoria that stood at the entrance of the old Munitoria building on the corner of Van der Walt and Vermeulen Streets (now renamed Lilian Ngoyi and Madiba Streets). When the Munitoria building was demolished on 7 July 2013 nobody could tell me whether the monument was still standing or not, so I decided to go look for myself.

Remembering The Battle of Delville Wood - July 2013
14 July marks a day when the South African 1st Infantry Brigade got engaged in the 1916 (WW1) Battle of the Somme, in France. The battle was one of the largest of World War I, in which more than a million men were wounded or killed, making it one of humanity's bloodiest battles. One specific encounter during this battle, known as The Battle of Delville Wood, is of particular importance to South Africa. The posting includes a comprehensive article (with pictures) compiled and written by Petros Kondos.
