Herero and Namaqua Fake-O-Cide (Part 4 - Final)



Readers who have been following these short series of postings so far, and who have also taken the trouble of reading some of the external sources I’ve linked to, will, no doubt, be thinking that Tia Mysoa has chewed on a topic way to big to swallow. I don’t blame people if this is the impression they get, as there were times I felt exactly the same. However, I urge readers to continue reading this final posting on this subject, for it contains an urgent and important message for those who care about their destiny.

We are all familiar with the phrase: "If you tell a lie that's big enough, and you tell it often enough, people will believe you are telling the truth…”.  The most effective way to spread these lies is to mix it with generous quantities of truths and half-truths, and then to flood the market with various stories that have a similar central theme. It helps if horrendous descriptive terms are used which play on the emotions of readers, which is exactly what the numerous pro-genocide publications have done.

The book, The Kaiser's Holocaust: Germany's Forgotten Genocide and the Colonial Roots of Nazism, by Casper Erichsen and David Olusoga, which is due for release later this year, uses very powerful ‘marketing tools’ coded into the book’s description.

The following extracts were taken from the Amazon.com page, and clearly illustrates the deceptive advertising techniques, that were utilized to attract attention. Although probably not the true intentions of the authors, it is in fact an ‘EXTERMINATION ORDER’ in disguise – a blatant attempt at psychological warfare against the Christian Nations of this world.

Psychological Warfare...
  • The unknown story of the genocide of the Herero and Nama peoples. (The story was well-known since 1985)
  • An atrocity that foreshadowed the Nazi genocides. (Prospective reader’s hairs stand on end, as they become spellbound!)
  • Colonial forces…
  • Ruthless punitive raids…
  • War of extermination
  • Thousands of indigenous people killed
  • Driven out into the desert to die…
  • Survivors interned in concentration camps
  • Systematically starved and worked to death
  • Ethnic cleansing
  • Kaiser’s Holocaust
  • Deliberately concealed for almost a century...

The fact remains that an authoritative work cannot simply ignore the truth, hence the reason why many respected sources dealing with the Herero-German conflict will also admit that the “x” pro-genocide thesis they’re referring to is “somewhat overstated,” or “the historiography of the events around the Herero genocide is subject to a great deal of controversy,” … and so forth! Take note, that these truths are only stated in order to get the “authoritative” stamp on the product, and that the specific wording is chosen cautiously so as to NOT to play too excessively on the emotions of their prospective clients.

Reparations and Compensation

When German President Roman Herzog visited Namibia in 1998 where he met Herero leaders, Chief Munjuku Nguvauva (now deceased – 16 January, 2008) demanded a public apology and compensation. Herzog expressed regret but stopped short of an apology. He also pointed out that special reparations were out of the question.

In September 2001 the Herero filed a civil claim in the district court of Columbia in the United States demanding $2 billion from the German government for atrocities committed during colonial rule. The lawsuit lodged by the Herero People's Reparation Corporation also seeks $2 billion from three German companies - Deutsche Bank; mining company Terex Corporation, formerly Orenstein-Koppel Co.; and the shipping company, Deutsche Afrika Linie, formerly Woermann Linie. The district court of Columbia was chosen for the lawsuit because a 216-year-old American law, the Alien Tort Claims Act of 1789, allows such civil action to be taken. Source and more info here.


On August 16, 2004, at the 100th anniversary of the start of the Herero fake-o-cide, a member of the German government, Heidemarie Wieczorek-Zeul, Germany's Minister for Economic Development and Cooperation, officially apologized and expressed grief about the genocide, declaring amidst a speech that:

“We Germans accept our historical and moral responsibility and the guilt incurred by Germans at that time.”

Have the Herero-Nama people ever bothered to return a similar apology, in the spirit of mutual forgiveness? Why should they, when an ever-increasing number of so-called scholarly publications, BBC documentaries, and goodness knows how many newspaper journalist, are providing sensationally-worded ‘evidence’ to show that there’s no need to forgive or forget?

If modern-day terms such as “genocide” are acceptable today and can be applied to the events of 100 years ago, then surely terms such as “xenophobia” are equally applicable? The Herero committed acts of xenophobia on their African neighbours long before the Germans arrived on African soil. It was the Herero rebel leader, Samuel Maharero, who declared war on Germany, not the other way round. The Nama king, Hendrik Witbooi, assisted the Germans during the war for 10 years, starting from September 1894 and ending in October 1904, after which he too turned rebellious. Incidentally, Hendrik Witbooi’s face is portrayed today on all Namibian Dollar banknotes. Source


Can you see the psychotic lunacy in all this modern-day twaddle and crap, about colonial forces committing genocide on indigenous people?




More than 100 years ago armed Herero and Nama rebels took on the Germans on African soil, in a similar fashion the Boers took on the British. The civilian casualties during the second Boer War amounted to more than 27,000 Boer women and children, who died in concentration camps. More than 25,000 Boer prisoners were displaced, not on their home soil in Africa, but overseas! The atrocities of those bygone days have long been forgiven and forgotten; it is only the foolish fanatics who refuse to let go…. which begs the question:  What the hell is wrong with the modern-day Herero leaders – are they perhaps exploiting the situation for financial gain?

Namibian German Development Aid and Tourism

Although Germany has, to date, resisted mounting calls from the Herero to pay reparations, it has provided considerable aid to Namibia since 1990. Calculated on a per capita basis, Namibia is the largest recipient of development aid from Germany in Africa. From 1990-2004, Namibia received more than €500 million ($619 million) in aid, the current annual contribution being €11.5 million.

Apart from regular contributions for Namibia (currently at €11.5 million annually), Germany supports special campaigns, for instance the "Initiative for Reconciliation", aimed at creating or improving boreholes, heritage museums, craft and cultural centres as well as schools, hostels and clinics. This initiative sees Germany give an additional €20 million over ten years from 2007 to 2016. Source


Final Concluding Remarks by Tia Mysoa

I hope these series of postings also attracts the attention of Black Africans, because it’s time they realize that the Whiteman cannot forever pay for the sins of their fathers, and definitely not if there is reputable evidence suggesting that a scam of mass proportions is taking place right under our very noses! If you need money, then work for it. If there are no jobs, then blame your government! Whatever you do, don’t fall for the spellbinding works of the devil, for if you do it will, most definitely, lead to your own destruction.

And if you don’t understand what I am saying, then let me spell it out for you…

You are being deceived by the main stream media (msm) and the voices of lunatic men such as Julius Malema! If you’re a South African, stop supporting the ANC Government. If you’re confused, then don’t vote! Strikes and riotous behaviour will only push prices up more, leaving you with less purchasing power in your pocket. If you’re keen on finding out who the real enemy is, then start studying the New Testament Books of the Holy Bible... Free Bibles Here. If you don’t want to… well then good luck with the rest of your life!

Sharing a few personal reflections:

I have travelled to the beautiful and majestic country of Namibia on several occasions during my lifetime here in Africa. During a recent visit I met a social worker (of the indigenous kind, but don’t ask me from what tribe, or mixture of tribes, as it is considered racist nowadays to even ask the question!). She spoke perfect Afrikaans while telling me how despondent she felt about the indigenous people of Namibia, particularly the men, who sit around doing nothing but booze all day long, with money they receive from government grants, while their wives and children are suffering from severe neglect and poverty. It was a scene I’ve witnessed with my own eyes on many occasions, but I never realized how serious the situation was.

During that same trip I also had a nasty experience in the city centre of Windhoek, in a shopping centre parking area, where I was waiting for a colleague of mine, who was sorting out some business in the city centre. I was thus alone at the time, probably sticking out like a sore thumb, and totally unaware that I was being watched by a gang of local juvenile delinquents.  The intense heat at the time caused me to climb out of the vehicle, but then I did a foolish thing and accidentally locked myself out. The vehicle contained way too many valuable items, such as camping gear, camera equipment,  2 weeks supply of groceries, etc.. so there was no way I was going to just walk off and leave the old VW camper all by its lonesome self.

At first I was gently attacked with stones, probably in an effort to make me leave the area. This malicious behaviour was followed by an effort on the part of one of the delinquents (one of the bigger chaps) to scare me with a knife. The bastard made it quite clear what he was going to do with the knife, as he expertly imitated the sequence of slitting my throat. I believe my travelling companion arrived just in the knick of time (with the keys), otherwise the incident would have most certainly turned bloody. The hooligans disappeared, like ghosts - so fast, that my companion would not believe my story until I pointed out the tiny dents and marks on his camper, and also when I showed him that my hands don’t normally shake that much!

The above incident is not the reason why I’ve presented this posting, nor has it had any influence in my personal feelings towards indigenous Africans in general. As I’ve stated before on this blog, I have an aversion for the savage murdering kind, who live among us, no matter what skin colour that person may have. If you live by the gun (or the knife) then be prepared to die by it… I know it’s an old dead-beat saying, but in my view it will remain a pertinent truth until the end of times.

Good article TIA.
Thanks for the heads up

You make a very good point:
"I hope these posts attract the attention of Black Africans. It is time they realize that the Whiteman cannot forever pay for the sins of their fathers.
If you need money, then work for it"

In my time in the UK I have stumbled across a falsehood that is constantly laid on the British people.
Most of the images they see of Africa are of the Sahara desert, the starving multitudes in the refugee camps in Ethiopia, and the dry bleakness of places like Mali

A number of articles have appeared about the Zimbabwean farmers being dispossessed of their land and comments are made that Zim was once the breadbasket of Africa and that much of the produce from these farms ends up on the shelves of Marks & Spencer etc in the UK. Images of these productive farms are rarely if ever published.

The net result is that the British are being conditioned to believe that "Africa is poor" and that continual aid to Africa is an unfortunate necessary fact of life.

When I say to them:
"Africa is not poor. It has every God given resource it needs to be a roaring success. If the continent was a consolidated nation like the USA, with the right management it has to potential to be a global super power"
I am invariably met with a stunned silence.
When I go further and say:
"This success has been conclusively proven by the Europeans who have created successful economies wherever they have settled'
all the muddled cliche's about this success being the result of exploitation of the locals - slavery - colonialism - apartheid are mumbled back at me.

Most of the time I had refrained from following up with examples of the lack of black capability of Black Africans to get anything done but I now longer do so.

What is the point of this rambling anecdote?

The western media spin doctors are absolute masters at creating verbal and written impressions of a desolate basket case and skillfully withold any images that can contradict them

To counteract this misinformation he blogging community must support all its articles with images that tell the true story.

The old adage of "A picture being worth a thousand words" is very true.

Wherever possible pictures from a creditable external source must be used.
Jesus taught us that you 'Can't be a prophet in your own back yard"

Bloggers need to use images from European and American sources to escape accusations that they are distorting the truth.

TM, very interesting series on South West, thank you.

Please allow me a seemingly silly question: Who keeps the German War Cemetery at Waterberg Plateau in such pristine shape and condition?

Surely not the...., no, of course not :-) !

"Yeah, you point a finger back far enough and some germ gets blamed for splitting in two." A silly quote from Battlestar Galactica, but oddly fitting. Point of view is another problem with deciphering truth. It so easily boils down to a very childish "you did it - but you started it" scenario. Especially with the undereducated, of which there is a growing number. Confusion is probably the ultimate lie created, since it draws from both truth and un-truth.
Should White South Africans not do the same though? It seems to work.
Let us stand together and sue the Catholic Church for throwing the Huguenots out of France, perhaps the Oost Indiesje Companje for setting up a tuck-shop in Cape town. How silly can we get?

@Laager@ Laager - I had the same experience abroad. Meeting an American in Israel, I was hounded with "free Mandela, end Apartheid" etc., until a Canadian teacher who lived here for two years corrected him. Firstly Mandela was free (at that stage) for a good decade, being president and all, and the government is deteriorating whatever was left to them. Ironically she was black to boot.

@ Laager

Thanks for the compliment and also your input!

There is much more I would have liked to mention in these series of posts, but my experience is that lengthy postings distract most viewers. I can pick this up from the FeedJit Stats, where I can see how long a viewer stays on the blog.

The main point I was trying to make here is that the strategy of warfare has transformed into a psychological one, and that specific terminology, among other things, have become the new weapons of mass destruction. The Herero-German episode gave me the ideal platform to explain this.

Although I’m sure the knowledgeable among us are aware of this psycho-onslaught, I’m not entirely convinced that most readers comprehend the massive intensity and scale of this deception, or more importantly… who is behind it!

As you said – “Africa is not poor.” – but yet the vast majority of its inhabitants are starving! This was the fundamental reason why I urged readers, in Part 2 of this series, to Google the term “Holodomor”. I was hoping that readers would put 2 and 2 together and realize that the famine-genocide in Ukraine, which, according to some estimates, killed 12 million civilians (during peacetime!!!), has also occurred in Africa. It is also happening right now in the once prosperous and beautiful country of South Africa, where it’s hard not to notice starving people (of all colours) standing on every street corner… nevermind the number of homeless who are silently famishing away in refugee camps scattered all over the country!

The ‘spin doctors’ behind the communist totalitarian regime in Russia, who wiped out 12 Million Ukrainians through starvation, are the same ‘spin doctors’ who now control South Africa and African affairs… and they’re about to flood this “rich” continent with their Communist Chinese accomplices – their partners in crime!

Blaming colonialism, apartheid, Africa’s harsh weather, etc. etc. are all spellbinding smokescreens… expertly spun to divert attention away from the true culprits.

@Adrem…

Interesting question… for we all know who the “staff workers” are who maintain those graves :-)

For the record…
The graves can be viewed near the Waterberg Camp (formerly: Bernabe De La Bat Resort) at the base of the Waterberg National Park, which is managed by the Namibian Government.

Here is a direct link to an old photograph of Herero prisoners of war in 1904.

Notice the two Black guards (soldiers) armed to the teeth, standing on the extreme left and right side of the picture. These armed soldiers were probably members of the Nama fighting unit who assisted the Germans. It’s no secret that they hated the Herero with a passion, which makes me wonder what atrocities, unbeknown to the Germans, these Nama soldiers committed against those people.

The Wikipedia page has the following to say about the original German captions on this photograph. Take note how they refer to the original caption as an ERROR and then ENCOURAGE editors to provide politically correct captions.

Here is the passage I’m referring to (direct link here):

“For documentary purposes the German Federal Archive often retained the original image captions, which may be erroneous, biased, obsolete or politically extreme. Factual corrections and alternative descriptions are encouraged separately from the original description. Additionally errors can be reported at this page to inform the Bundesarchiv.”

If this is not evidence of mass deception, then I don’t what is!

The website www.namibia-1on1.com provides original and comprehensive information about the Herero Uprising of 1904. The site is also well-illustrated with numerous photographs and maps. Much of the info published on this site is either foreign to the pro-genocide advocates, or has deliberately been left out of their propaganda dealing with this issue.

I’ve taken the liberty of providing the following extracts:

Thus began the Herero Uprising. The 11th and 12th January saw the German farms and trading posts dotted along the Swakop and White Nossob rivers in the Okahandja and Windhoek districts being sacked. The way in which the German men were murdered was often slow and brutal with the victims suffering death by being systematically burned, clubbed and mutilated. Throughout the conflict many of the Germans, including captured and wounded soldiers, finding themselves outnumbered and with no chance of escape resorted to shooting themselves in preference to being reduced to the tortured playthings of the natives. Those who didn't - suffered the consequences. Read more here

At the time of the uprising the number of German soldiers available for active duty within the country, stood at a total of 766 men. The Herero battle strength was between 5,000 to 6,000 men of which 2,000 to 3,000 were armed with rifles.

In other words, if German reinforcements were not sent in, the Herero rebels would have totally annihilated the Germans!


The same website also provides detailed info about the Battle of Waterberg.

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.
