Whites: Sleeping on the edge of Vesuvius?

A brilliant article from the classics archive of South Africa Sucks


In 2004, South Africans could only gawk in stunned amazement at the spectacle of hundreds of ANC regime apparatchiks, led by His Excellency Comrade Glorious Leader Tarboy Mbeggi, flying off to celebrate the 200 year “independence” celebrations of an obscure & insignificant little island in the Caribbean. Even a SA Navy warship made its way there, with the SAS Drakensberg throwing anchor just off the Haitian coast, just in case our ruling kleptocracy had to get their portly black arses out of there in a hurry. Most had never even heard of Haiti before, nor could anyone fathom what possible links existed between South Africa and this veritable squatter camp of an island. Millions of rands of mostly White-generated taxpayer money was blown on this outrageous ditty. The sycophantic Azanian media dutifully reported on this shit hole in the sun, pattering on in grave tones about its significance to South Africa’s currently advantaged black elite.

The occasion Mbeggi and his massive entourage went to celebrate, was the infamous slave rebellion which resulted in France losing control over its erstwhile colony. What was mildly under-reported was the shocking genocide of thousands of White men, women & children on the island. The slave uprising was a race war of unprecedented proportions, where rampaging blacks went on a murderous spree, killing every last White person on the island.

Shortly after Mbeggi’s return, all hell broke loose and in typical African fashion, the current despot was violently deposed. Jean Bertrand Aristide, the Marxist priest and Haitian dictator was offered safe haven and has been luxuriating in South Africa ever since. As official guest-in-perpetuity of the ruling ANC regime, the parasite Aristide is costing South Africa millions of rands per month, with no end in sight. What exact value this murderous former dictator is contributing to the country as a whole, or the Marxist regime in particular, is not clear. What is abundantly clear is that he is a political soul mate of the ruling clique.

While the history of Haiti reads like any African country, replete with one bloody coup after another, grinding poverty and merciless suffering, you would be forgiven for wondering why I would bore you with a chronological account of just another black disaster. There are, it seems, some interesting parallels between Haiti and its slave uprising of 200 years ago, and the former White South Africa which ended in 1994. I’ll leave you to draw the parallels.

The slaughter that brought Africa to our doorstep

Most Americans do not give much thought to Haiti. They may know it is a black, French-speaking country, which shares the Caribbean island of Hispaniola with the Dominican Republic. From what they see on television they realize it is a poor, violent nation ruled by a succession of dictators, each seemingly worse than the last. They may also associate Haiti with AIDS, crime, drug gangs, boat people and environmental disasters. These are all correct associations but the history of Haiti puts all this in a broader context. It offers one of the most sobering lessons about race in the New World. It is a story that is rarely told, but the grim realities of the aitian revolution and its aftermath are just as worthy of our attention today as they were 200 years ago. None other than Lothrop Stoddard (see AR, Jan. 2000), who wrote his Ph.D. thesis on Haiti and later published it as The French Revolution in San Domingo, called the black uprising “the first shock between the ideals of white supremacy and racial equality.”

Haiti is a nation of eight million people packed into an area the size of Maryland. The illiteracy rate is 60 percent, the unemployment rate 65 percent, and the average per capita annual income is estimated at $225-the lowest in the hemisphere and less than one tenth the Latin America/Caribbean average. The United Nations says 60 percent of the population is sexually active by age 12 and the average number of births per woman is 4.8-the highest in the hemisphere. The population is expected to double to 16 million by 2030, and Haiti’s overpopulation is ravaging the environment. At the turn of the century it still had half of its original forests, but today only 1.5 percent are left. Most Haitians depend on firewood for fuel. Every year American relief workers plant six million saplings but Haitians cut down 25-30 million trees, causing the erosion of 15,000 acres of farmland. As a result, 25 of Haiti’s 30 watersheds are essentially denuded. Haiti must import 60 percent of its food, and is teeming with poor, diseased, desperate people eager to come to America. Only the US Coast Guard prevents the nation from moving en masse to Florida. It was not always like this in the land once called “the gem of the West Indies.”

French San Domingo

Haiti was once called “the gem of the West Indies.”

Columbus discovered the island in 1492 and named it “la Isla Española,” which was later shortened to Hispaniola. For a brief period, until the promising discoveries of Peru and Mexico, it was the center of Spanish colonization. The Spanish did not stay long but their stay was important. They killed most of the Arawak Indians, and when they left for other colonies they set their livestock free. The Spanish maintained a presence on the eastern part of the island but abandoned the west. Other Europeans ignored Hispaniola for nearly 100 years but settlers who came in the 1600s found an island filled with cattle and pigs, and empty of hostile natives. The new arrivals to the western part were mostly buccaneers who preyed on Spanish ships and hunted the abundant wild cattle (the word “buccaneer” comes from the French boucaner, “to barbecue beef”). As the Spanish consolidated their hold to the east, the French slowly took control of the west, which became French San Domingo. By the 1700s the colony was turning from what Stoddard called “a nest of hunters and pirates,” into a thriving outpost of agriculture and trade.

At the time of the French Revolution in 1789, French San Domingo was at its most prosperous. In the rich aluvial Plaine du Nord there were a thousand plantation houses set behind pillared gateways, which sparkled at night with the illumination of elaborate balls. The colony was one of the leading exporters of coffee, sugar, cocoa and cotton, and in 1789 the dollar value of its trade exceeded that of the United States. However, its affluence was based on a fragile racial dynamic of 40,000 whites ruling 500,000 black slaves-the majority African-born. There was also an intermediate class of 27,000 mulattos who had come about because of an initial scarcity of white women, and which would play an important role in the future of the colony.

Even after the arrival of French women, it was common for wealthy whites to keep mulatto mistresses. Still, the color line was well observed when it came to marriage. The few white men who married mulattos were shunned by white society and stripped of many rights-with the French government’s approval. One priest who had refused marriage to a white and a mulatto was commended by a French minister who wrote: “His Majesty’s pleasure is not to permit the mixing of the bloods; your prevention of the marriage in question is therefore approved.”

Officially classified as “free people of color,” mulattos could own land, businesses, and even slaves. They despised the slaves but resented the whites, to whom they were subordinate. Mulattos could not vote or hold office. They were segregated in theaters, shops and churches, and even the wealthiest mulatto was the social inferior of the poorest white.

Whites of all classes as well as the authorities in France considered the color line natural and necessary. Outnumbered 13-to-1 by blacks and mulattos, whites had good reason to stay united in the face of occasional uprisings on rural plantations in which slaves slaughtered all the whites they could catch. Moreover, the French blamed the relative failure of Spanish and Portuguese colonies on miscegenation, and did not want to make the same mistake. Whites would maintain the color line at all costs, but the bitterness of the mixed-race class would soon find a sympathetic ear.

In the words of the revolutionary leader Honoré de Mirabeau, whites “slept on the edge of Vesuvius.”

The French Revolution

After the French Revolution and the overthrow of Louis XVI, most whites in San Domingo expected to receive more say in running the colony. This hope turned to terror as they learned of the new regime’s revolutionary racial plans. In 1788 a French pamphleteer named Jacques Brissot had formed the Amis des Noirs (Friends of the Blacks). Patterned after English abolitionist groups, the society soon became far more radical. Most of the future Jacobin leaders such as Lafayette, Condorcet, Mirabeau and Robbespierre were members, and chapters soon spread throughout France. San Domingo was subject to French rule, and colonists began to wonder how far these zealots would take their slogan “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity.”In the words of Mirabeau, whites “slept on the edge of Vesuvius”

Almost from the beginning, the National Assembly in Paris pushed for full citizenship rights for mulattos. Mulattos were emboldened and whites distressed when the Jacobins announced in 1792 they were sending a civil commission-supported by 6,000 troops-to San Domingo to enforce the rights of mulattos. When the black slaves heard the news they went into open revolt in the hope that they, too, would get freedom. Whites in San Domingo were therefore under siege from slaves, mulattos and their own government. One white who managed to return to France predicted the outcome: “You may announce unreservedly that it is all over with San Domingo. One of three things will follow: the whites will exterminate the whole mulatto caste; the mulattos will destroy the whites; or the negroes will profit by these dissensions to annihilate both the whites and the mulattos. But in any case, San Domingo should be erased from the maps of France.”



The commission arrived and went to work, forcing whites to recognize full citizenship rights for mulattos. The result was chaos and race war. By 1793, most whites had either been killed or fled to France or the United States. (About 10,000 settled in the U.S. where they were received sympathetically. Many soldiers who had accompanied the French commission also left with them rather than help destroy their own people.)

With the defeat of the whites, mulattos expected to rule in their place, exploiting the labor of black slaves, but the blacks, led by General Pierre Dominique Toussaint L’Ouverture (1743-1803) and supported by the French government, rose up against the mulattos. Badly outnumbered and without allies, “the yellow caste” soon met the same fate as the whites. L’Ouverture and his troops slaughtered them by the thousand.
Toussaint L’Ouverture.

By 1801, the former slave was supreme ruler of San Domingo. He strengthened ties with the British, who helped keep his troops well armed in exchange for supplies from the naturally rich island. In 1800 he invited whites back to the island, assuring them they would be well treated. A few thousand returned. He gave many back their plantations and ordered most blacks to work for the whites and for the state. The powerful military made short work of anyone who opposed this neo-slavery. When L’Ouverture’s nephew, a black general named Moyse, led a revolt against these “pro-white” policies L’Ouverture put down the insurrection and executed his nephew. In 1801 he drew up a new constitution and appointed himself “Governor for life” with the right to appoint his successor. Much like post-colonial African leaders, the “black George Washington,” as he is often called, made himself dictator.

Why didn’t the French take a greater role in suppressing the violence after more conservative elements regained control in Paris? In fact, Napoleon wanted to send troops but was stretched thin with campaigns in India and Egypt and war with Britain. In 1802, after peace with Britain, Napoleon did manage to send a force of 12,000 under Charles Leclerc with orders to take San Domingo, restore it to French rule, and arrest L’Ouverture. Napoleon did not at first plan to reestablish slavery but he wanted to restore French sovereignty over a white-run colony. The outnumbered French defeated the blacks, forcing L’Ouverture to surrender in the spring of 1802. Leclerc thought it best to pardon L’Ouverture and let him return to civilian life rather than exile him to France, but kept a wary eye on him. Most of the black soldiers came over to the victorious French side.

What appeared to be a success soon turned to failure. That summer a great many French soldiers, as well as thousands of civilians, caught yellow fever and died. L’Ouverture began to plot an uprising against the weakened French, but blacks loyal to Leclerc managed to lure him within the French lines and capture him. Leclerc packed L’Ouverture off to jail in France where he caught tuberculosis and died. Nevertheless, as disease continued to ravage the white troops, Leclerc began to depend increasingly on the doubtful loyalty of black generals and their followers. To Leclerc’s dismay, Napoleon rescinded the ban on the slave trade and urged the re-establishment of slavery in the colonies. The black soldiers were furious, and many went into insurrection. Napoleon reestablished restrictions on mulattos as well-something completely impossible to enforce in San Domingo-which broke down the strong antipathy between blacks and mulattos and united them against the French.

Leclerc himself died of yellow fever later in 1802 but the death knell of white-run San Domingo was the outbreak in May 1803 of another war with Britain. The British blockaded the island and supported the blacks and mulattos in what was now open race war against the French. In November 1803 the French surrendered and sailed away, leaving San Domingo in the hands of Jean-Jacques Dessalines (1758-1806), a former slave who had been one of L’Ouverture’s generals. It is this combination of yellow fever and support from the British that accounts for the Afrocentric claim that a black army “defeated” Napoleon.

Dessalines, who crowned himself Emperor Jacques I, wanted to break all ties with France. One symbolic step was to change the name of the colony to Haiti, which is what the Arawaks called the island. He guaranteed safety to whites who remained, and even encouraged more to come, but this was a ruse. In early 1805, he ordered their extermination. A French officer who escaped described the carnage:

“The murder of the whites in detail began at Port-au-Prince in the first days of January [1805], but on the 17th and 18th of March they were finished off en masse. All, without exception, have been massacred, down to the very women and children. . . . A young mulatto named Fifi Pariset ranged the town like a madman searching the houses to kill the little children. Many of the men and women were hewn down by sappers, who hacked off their arms and smashed in their chests. Some were poniarded, others mutilated, others ’passed on the bayonet,’ others disemboweled with knives or sabers, still others stuck like pigs. At the beginning a great number were drowned. The same general massacre has taken place all over the colony, and as I write you these lines I believe there are not twenty whites still alive-and these not for long.”

With this final slaughter, French San Domingo vanished from history and the black nation of Haiti arrived.

Africa in the New World

Haiti was the second nation in the Western Hemisphere-after the United States-to gain independence, and Haitians will officially mark their bicentennial in 2004. It is unlikely that even Afrocentric blacks will celebrate this milestone with much enthusiasm. After 200 years of black rule there is little of which to boast. A United Nations report says Haiti may soon be incapable of supporting human life.
The most common way to transport goods.

Besides AIDS, crime, drugs, poverty and environmental destruction, Haiti has a form of slavery called restavec. A Haitian Creole term meaning “stays with,” a restavec is a poor child sold to a wealthy family as a servant. The government itself accepts a U.N. estimate of 300,000 such children in Haiti. Jean-Robert Cadet, a former restavec who escaped to America wrote a book in 1999 called Restavec: From Haitian Slave Child to Middle Class American. He says restavecs “are treated worse than slaves because . . . their supply seems inexhaustible.” Mr. Cadet says restavecs are often beaten and raped. Despite prodding from the U.N., the European Union, and the Catholic Church, Haitian officials have done nothing to stop this practice.

Many Haitian children are fed by aid from the U.S. and the U.N. Haiti gets by far the biggest slice of U.S. aid in the Western Hemisphere (20 percent). From 1994 to 1999, U.S. taxpayers poured over $2.3 billion dollars into Haiti but relief officials are giving up in dismay at the meager results. Even some in Congress have begun to notice we have little to show for our money. Representative Porter Goss of Florida says, “We’ve been ripped off in Haiti and I don’t see why we should put more money into it. There’s so much corruption that the only way to make sure aid gets to the people is to fly down there yourself with some food, hand it to a Haitian, and watch him eat it in your presence.”

Attempts to bolster the Haitian economy have failed. In 1997 Secretary of State Madeleine Albright flew to Haiti to launch a new privatization program funded by U.S. investors, and to celebrate the return of a state-run flour mill to the private sector. Miss Albright’s triumphal visit to the mill was scuttled when advance men found it occupied by angry former workers demanding more severance pay.

What could have been a tropical vacation paradise has been ruined, and is so wracked with crime no travel agency will recommend it as a destination. “You’re not looking at a tropical country,” says Ed Scott, a contractor for U.S. aid to Haiti; “you’re looking at a Nevada desert.” Tourists venture in at their own risk. In January 2000 a French couple was stoned to death along with their Haitian driver during a robbery. A few days later an American couple was carjacked at gunpoint and the woman shot dead.

Despite President Clinton’s claim that the 1994 invasion was to “restore democracy,” Haiti has almost always been ruled by strongmen. Of the 40 rulers of Haiti from it’s independence to the 1994 invasion, only four left office peacefully. Most of the rest were either murdered, ousted in coups, or fled into exile (see chart). In 1957 and in 1988 there were four different regimes in a single year. In 1999 then-president René Preval “postponed” elections five times and refused to call Parliament into session. He ruled by decrees enforced by the 6,000-man Haitian National Police. That year the UN accused the police of committing over 500 serious crimes, including 50 murders.

When elections do take place they are a joke. In 1997 only six percent of the voters even bothered to show up at the polls for parliamentary elections. The results were annulled because of fraud. In May 2000 there was finally another parliamentary election. Fifteen people were killed leading up to the vote, two were killed on the day of the vote, and three opposition leaders killed after the vote (one was stoned to death). The government arrested more than 20 opposition candidates after the elections. The balloting itself was rife with fraud. The ruling Lavalas Party of Mr. Preval and former president Jean-Bertrand Aristide controlled the polling stations and thousands of votes were “lost” in transit to the capital Port-au-Prince.

Opponents accuse Mr. Preval of being a puppet of Mr. Aristide, a Marxist former priest ousted in a coup d’etat and put back into power after the US invasion in 1994. Mr. Aristide was barred from consecutive terms by the Haitian constitution but still “won” a November 2000 election with 92 percent of the vote, after an opposition boycott. Not even the United Nations could stomach this farce. It announced it was closing its civilian support mission to Haiti, which was supposed to promote democracy and human rights.

Haiti has made one genuinely unique gift to world culture: voodoo. Eighty percent of the population is Catholic, 20 percent are Protestants, and all 100 percent believe in voodoo. Up until the 1950s, Catholics tried to stamp out voodoo but have now adopted some of its rituals.

Mr. Aristide writes in his autobiography, “I do not consider voodoo to be an antagonist or an enemy of the Christian faith,” but rather a vital expression of “a society close to nature, black and Haitian.” He added that “in the veins of voodoo flows a blood that is Christian.” Protestant missionaries report that many of their “converts” are ardent voodoo believers just looking for extra protection.

Mr. Aristide, lapsed priest, is not the first man with a religious background to run Haiti. François “Papa Doc” Duvalier liked to appear in public dressed as the voodoo deity Baron Samedi. Likewise, at the time of the U.S. invasion, the military leaders scoffed at the American threat. Provisional President Emile Jonassaint said the country’s three zombie battalions would crawl out of their graves at the bidding of their voodoo masters and smite the Americans.

What about the Haitians who come here? There are approximately two million Haitians living abroad, mainly in the U.S. and Canada. Since more than eight percent of Haitians are estimated to have the HIV virus, this represents a considerable health risk, but Haitians bring other things with them. In 1998, a Haitian woman on Long Island was almost burned to death in a ceremony by her voodoo priest. He was apparently trying to remove evil spirits from her house when he doused her with a flammable liquid and set her on fire. When authorities charged him with attempted murder local Haitians rallied to his defense. “Like a lot of ethnic groups who’ve migrated here, we’ve brought our culture with us,” explained a community leader.

They have taken the same culture to Canada, where a judge decided it puts a different perspective on certain crimes. When two Haitians took turns raping and smothering a young Haitian woman, Judge Monique Dubreuil gave them only 18 months house arrest and 100 hours of community service. “The absence of regret of the two accused seems to be related more to the cultural context, particularly with regard to relations with women,” she explained. She may be right. In 1997 Miami police were tipped off about a possible wife beating. When they arrived at the address they found a woman tied to a bed and a man swinging a piece of wood. The Haitian couldn’t understand what the fuss was about. “I wasn’t beating someone else’s wife,” he explained. “This is my wife.”

Even a few restavecs have turned up in America. In 1999, Florida police acting on a tip from neighbors removed a filthy, unkempt 12-year-old girl from a Haitian home in upscale Pembroke Pines. She was both a drudge worker and a sex toy for the young man of the house, who had been raping her since she was nine. A trickle of other slaves have escaped, and authorities have no idea how many more restavecs are still hidden among the growing number of Haitian immigrants.

The business district of Port-au-Prince.

More Haitians live in Miami than anywhere else in America. Their presence does not seem to please Miami’s Cubans or even its blacks. Last year a black activist tried to prevent government funds earmarked for “African-Americans” from being shared by Haitians. This angered Haitians, who reminded Miami’s blacks that Haitians will soon outnumber them. This may not be pleasant. A letter to a Miami newspaper from a newcomer suggests relations are not good: “My experience as a Haitian-American with African-American schoolmates was one filled with racial epithets such as H.B.O. (Haitian body odor), Haitians eat cats, Haitians are boat people, and Haitians have AIDS. These African-American kids were taught at home to despise Haitians.”

Nor is it likely to be pleasant for the rest of America. The poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere-a perfect little chunk of Africa-lurks just 600 miles off the coast of Florida. A U.S. Embassy survey in November 1999 found that 70 percent of Haitians have given “serious thought” to leaving. As things get worse they won’t just think about it. Former U.S. ambassador to Haiti Ernest Preeg says bluntly: “If we didn’t have a credible Coast Guard interdiction policy-which presently sends these people back-you would be talking about hundreds of thousands landing on our beaches.”

Some people want to let them come. Black and liberal groups complained bitterly last year about a New Year’s Eve operation that sent back 400 Haitian boat people. U.S. Rep. Connie Meek (D-Fl) led a group of black protesters waving placards saying “Equal Justice for Haitians,” and demanding the 400 be allowed to “stay.” They want to give Haitians the same rights as Cubans fleeing communism, so that if they set foot in the U.S. they will be let in.

If these groups get their wish we will be importing the descendants of the people who slaughtered thousands of whites and made Haiti unlivable. In sufficient numbers they will have the same effect on America.

Of course, we need not look as far as Haiti to understand the link between race and civilization, and what it means for America. Haiti is nothing more than Camden or East St. Louis writ large, and without the surrounding white society to support it.

Africans remake Africa wherever they may go.

Racially Motivated Crimes or Not?

from I Luv SA & Vdare

South Africa is not the only country to suffer the scourge of violent home invasions by blacks. Of course this particular attack has been put down to "normal crime" by the police and media, not a race crime. You know how it works, if the victims are white - say it, all together now - it is not a race crime. Race crimes are when whites attack blacks. Tut tut, pay attention. Check the headlines when a white verbally abuses much less physically harms a non-white individual. The mainstream media is all over it like bird shit on a shiny new car. In response to Auster's question (see text in red below), we will. The era of white consciousness is upon us.

UK: Race, Immigration, and “Unnecessary Physical Violence”–And They Wonder Why Britons Turn to UKIP and the BNP!

According to the British detective inspector, “Both victims were subjected to unnecessary physical violence in their own home…. However, I would like to reassure the public that such crimes are very rare.”

“Unnecessary physical violence” involved the woman, who lived in Clapham, in the South London borough of Lambeth, being sodomized and repeatedly raped over the course of three hours, and her boyfriend being subjected to, oh, being tied up and “repeatedly kicked and punched,” threatened with murder, while “computer cable was wrapped around his throat,” being repeatedly pistol-whipped, and “a hot iron [being] pressed against his forehead and thigh, and then lemon juice and bleach were poured and rubbed in to his injuries.”

The two 20-year-old black attackers, Reon Hall, alias Reon Wong, and Aaron Fitzgerald Gelly, were joined in their “unnecessary physical violence” by “several more men,” about whom we learn nothing. (“Several,” to me, means at least four.)

Gelly, Hall, & Co. also robbed their victims of £220, and “a small amount of property, including mobile phones, and made their escape by stealing the victims’ cars.”

Two automobiles isn’t exactly “a small amount of property.”

The case was a slam-dunk, as police were able to quickly recover both cars, and “a cigarette butt in the bedroom … contained DNA relating to the two men in court today.”

So, what did the two unnecessarily violent gentlemen—never mind their unnamed, and presumably at large accomplices—receive, by way of punishment, for multiple counts of aggravated assault, multiple counts of aggravated rape, aggravated kidnapping, robbery and grand theft auto? During a backward, more civilized time, they would have been hanged. Instead, they got only nine years each, which will likely translate into only four years actually served.

The victims, er, criminals took a plea bargain. But with such a strong case, why offer a plea bargain?

I learned about this case from Larry Auster, who noted that the British mainstream press disappeared it, with only a few local papers, such as The Surrey Comet reporting on it at all, and declining to mention the victims’ races. British commenters and Auster assumed that the victims were white, which you can pretty much take to the bank, due to the savagery of the attack. Note too that this is not the first time that I have read of black felons pouring bleach on a victim in the UK, though they typically pour beach on a white female, after raping her. (In America, this is form of torture growing in popularity among racist black felons: see here.)

This was almost certainly a racial attack, by sociopaths who are likely immigrants or the children of immigrants. But no, can’t mention anything of significance. (And if the media don’t like people assuming that the victims are white, they have to stop suppressing such vital information.)

Speaking of the refusal to use clear, informative English, the aforementioned British detective inspector is named Mick Foote. Remember that name! That man is going places. Anyone who can turn a horrific, racist attack, the likes of which the UK sees all the time these days, into “unnecessary physical violence” and can, with a straight face, lie that “such crimes are very rare” is on his way, either to the upper reaches of the UK police bureaucracy, or to a BAFTA award for acting.

Auster writes,


“How many white people in the whole damned Western world will speak openly and publicly about the ongoing intifada of savage black on white racial violence? How many British and American ‘conservatives’ will do it? How many self-described ‘to the right of Attila the Hun’ American conservatives will do it?”
[Group of blacks hold white couple prisoner in London flat, repeatedly raping woman, torturing man by Lawrence Auster, VIEW FROM THE RIGHT, June 21, 2009.]

(Lest I be accused by non-black immigrants in the UK of ignoring their impressive contributions to violent anarchy, let me note Pakistani Moslems’ involvement in crime, particularly the gang rape of young women and the “grooming” rapes by older men of younger girls.)

And note how poor the victims were, even before the attack. Their poverty and victimization capture in a microcosm the fate of the white British working and lower-middle classes, in an era of mass immigration, racial socialism, and the class war of the elites against the British people.

But God forbid, you should publicly support the BNP. You’ll lose your job!

Zimbabwe – a model of cause and effect

A thought provoking post at Sarah Maid of Albion. You will also notice that Sarah records the total number of victims in the Hidden Genocide in South Africa (farm murders), currently at 3,060 deaths. A shocking statistic which gets little or no attention in the liberal mainstream media.

zim-flag-bobIt is now frequently asked from corners of the Western world “When does Zimbabwe return to normal?”

Zimbabwe has returned to normal. From time immemorial Zimbabwe was a Stone Age culture, without a written language, without wheel or shoe. Social order was by primitive law, a melange of practicality, mystic, pragmatism and witchcraft. Maternal mortality was 1:6.

The sole factor, which changed Zimbabwe, was the arrival of white colonists. These colonists alone created a culture which allowed an agricultural and creative productivity supremely beneficial to all the inhabitants. That productivity increased progressively as the number of white colonists increased.

Many who claim knowledge ability respond with “But Zimbabwe is a modern country – look at the high-rise cities, look at the sophisticated population which dresses well, drives expensive vehicles, travel internationally, have their children in top schools”. What these “authorities” fail to comprehend is that what they see now is no more than a relic of a lost past. If an earthquake destroyed the built environment there would be no possibility of the natives rebuilding it. Zimbabweans would return to seeking shelter in grass and mud huts, surviving with a primitive agriculture. The natives cannot even maintain the current infrastructure which decays progressively month by month. Not only do the obvious material constructs like roads and railways decay, but so also are the less obvious technical constructs like the aviation and health infrastructures are in downward decay - often there is no air-traffic control over Zimbabwe. Law is varied to suit the whim of the headmen.

What about the grand who flaunt their wealth? These are no more than the asset strippers temporarily preening the residua of a failed civilisation. There is not the productivity to support this charade indefinitely and the facade continues to abrade away. Like the teen who steals father’s Lamborghini to impress a girl, so these people continue to try to seduce the West into giving aid and making investment on the basis of claiming ownership of a “civilisation”. But there is no prospect of re-building this nation, unless a form of colonisation returns, of course.

These claims will be difficult to get into the intellects of those who wish not to hear. Some will continue to deny this failure of a race, denying both cause and effect.

One technique of establishing cause and effect phenomena is to remove the hypothetical causative agent and measure response.

In Zimbabwe the colonists were forced to leave and as their numbers lessened so the constructive capability of the nation degraded in parallel. There was an absolute cause and effect relationship. Once a critical threshold of whites had left, agricultural production plummeted and mining in many arenas ceased. In 2008 the school year was “closed”, i.e. literacy ceased being taught. The hospitals closed one after the other and maternal mortality is returning to one death in every six pregnancies. Malaria, polio, typhoid, typhus, plague, meningitis and measles are all returning to pre-colonial levels. Starvation is endemic. Life expectancy is returning to 37 years for males, 34 for females. The statistics of the Stone Age have returned.

For any logician, the cause and effect relationship between the presence of the colonists and the productivity of the country should be indisputable. There are sufficient grounds to reach that conclusion.

However, analytical science requires that any hypothesis of cause and effect be reproducible. How can we reproduce this model? It is fairly simple.

David Bullard was a popular columnist with the Johannesburg Sunday Times, who had been praised by the editor for his objective insight. However, he made the mistake of speculating, in print, what South Africa would have been like had the colonists not arrived. He believed that it would have remained a hunter-gatherer Stone Age society. Needless to say he was dismissed from the Johannesburg Sunday Times. The reasons were not that his logic was at fault but that the black editor denied this logic, denied history and denied reality.

Was Bullard correct? What if there were areas of Africa which had never been colonized? This was exactly the case in parts of Northern Nigeria. These areas had never been colonised and remained as they had been since time immemorial: thick bush, malaria, insufferable temperatures and no productivity. The only trace of the 21st century was the extermination of many wild animals by fire-armed native poachers.

Let us take the experimental model further. What would happen if you put colonists into this Stone Age environment? Exactly that occurred when individuals of white colonist stock, who had been expelled from their farms in Zimbabwe, were invited to begin “developing” this wild bush land. Effectively they had been asked to “colonize”.

What was the outcome? In five years these white farming colonists had turned wild, impenetrable, unpleasant and dangerous bush into productive farms. Sorghum and many other products were now produced in large quantities. Water had been obtained for irrigation, mechanical infrastructure had been introduced and malaria and other diseases were being controlled.

This example, together with the invitation to whites to re-colonise Moçambique and Sudan (and the recent invitation to whites to re-colonize by the Congolese) proves that the white colonists were a sufficient ingredient to create productive civilizations and were the necessary component in sustaining agriculture in these areas. Without them productive civilisation fails.

That Bullard may well have been correct is illustrated by these sequences of events which substantiate the hypothesis that white colonists are necessary if Africa is to thrive. If the country is to return to its past achievements the only practical way is to invite a re-colonization by the erstwhile white Zimbabweans. However they will require a return of the foundations of Western civilisation, such as an enforceable and fair system of justice, reinstatement of their Zimbabwean nationality, and security of ownership.

The cynics will now say that once these colonists have created an infrastructure in any of these black-governed lands the native asset strippers will get active again, destroying exactly as they did in Zimbabwe. Will black Africa again reap without sowing?

Time will execute this experiment also…

David Letterman - another moron

Jeering Killers jailed for life

from The Sun

Personally, I think these pieces of scum should be wiped from the face of the earth...

THE heartless killers of tragic schoolboy Ben Kinsella jeered and shouted at his grieving family after receiving their sentences today.

Evil ... Jade Braithwaite, Juress Kikka and Michael Alleyne

Evil ... Jade Braithwaite, Juress Kikka and Michael Alleyne

 

Juress Kika, 19, Jade Braithwaite, 18, and Michael Alleyne, 20, from London, were given life with a minimum term of 19 years each.

There was loud cheering and shouts of "bye bye" from the public gallery where dozens of Ben's friends and family gathered as the killers were taken down.

Ben Kinsella

Then two of the unrepentant killers, Kika and Alleyne, turned and shouted back at Ben's supporters before being led away.

Members of the defendants' families then exchanged angry words with Ben's friends and relatives in the public gallery before they were led out.

The killers' lawyers all reported that they had been issued with letters from the prison authorities saying the defendants were in danger of revenge attacks in jail.

They could be placed in solitary confinement for their own safety.

One lawyer said: "Jade Braithwaite understands he is a marked man."

Old Bailey judge, the Common Serjeant of London Brian Barker, told them: "Your blind and heartless anger that night defies belief.

Last moments ... Ben staggers

Last moments ... Ben staggers

"He had in front of him a lifetime of promise. You have taken all that away from him in a brutal, cowardly and totally unjustified attack."

Ben's sister, former EastEnders actress Brooke Kinsella, 25, said following the sentencing: "It's good enough but it is little more than Ben lived, so it is not really enough."

Ben and his mates had been to a bar to celebrate the end of their GCSE exams when a row broke out in Islington, North London, on June 29 last year.

Although the row had nothing to do with him, he was chased along the street with other youngsters - and stabbed to death when he stopped running.

Ben was stabbed 11 times in five seconds by the three youths in revenge for the "disrespect" shown to Braithwaite earlier.

The Common Serjeant of London, Judge Brian Barker, told the defendants that they took part in a "brutal, cowardly and totally unjustified attack".

Their action that night "defies belief", he said.

"His family will never get over it but he will never be forgotten," the judge said.

"Ben Kinsella was 16 when he died. He had in front of him a lifetime of promise and you have taken all that away from him by a brutal, cowardly and totally unjustified attack.

"The background is depressing and all too familiar in these courts. It reflects the futility of carrying and using knives by some young people.

"Your behaviour generates outrage in all right-minded people and your blind and heartless anger defies belief."

SotoSetAsides: 'I'm a product of Affirmative Action'

Extract from post at Barely A Blog:

I’m shocked. Sonia SotoSetAsides once admitted that her test scores “were not comparable to her colleagues at Princeton and Yale” (with the exception of the scores of Mighty Michelle O). Nor were her scores on par with the scores of the forgotten students the system had helped her usurp.
I’m so disillusioned (irony alert to the prosaic among you). Weren’t we promised by the POTUS, another recipient of racial preferential treatment, that Sotomayor had a first-rate legal mind? Don’t tell me that this society has been hollowed out like a husk at every level—private and public; local, state and federal—by statist social engineering? And so, once again, we were right to call Soto so-and-so a mediocrity, a product of racial set-asides. It’s all so very shocking. You want to add Larry Auster’s analysis to the specter of Soto admitting that her test scores left much to be desired. (On the bright side, perhaps a dim liberal bulb will do less damage as one of America’s new black-robed deities):

BNP gains North West seat in European Parliament


THE BNP has gained a North West seat in the European elections, which included votes from the Cheshire East Council area that covers towns including Middlewich.

The British National Party got 132,094 votes (up 1.6%) in the region, giving it one seat in the European Parliament.

BNP leader Nick Griffin will now be one of eight MEPs representing the region in Brussels.

His party gained its first two seats in the European Parliament in last night's results.

The Conservatives got three seats in the North West with 423,174 votes (up 1.5%). There was no change in their number of seats compared to the last European election.

Lessons to be learned from local & Euro elections

Malcolm Moss

NORTH East Cambridgeshire MP Malcolm Moss expressed his delight at the results from last Thursday's local and European elections, but he warned that lessons need to be learnt from both UKIP and BNP gains.

He said he was delighted that the Conservative Party had extended their majority in Cambridgeshire County Council to 16 seats and in North East Cambridgeshire all the county council divisions now have Conservative councillors.

However he said was concerned at the recent gains made by the BNP in the European elections, where they gained their first seats and in local elections where their share of the vote increased:

"Whilst I am pleased at the election results there is a clear wake up call for all involved in politics, in particular this crumbling government," he said.

Sipho meets his match

I received the following in an email a few years ago and completely forgot about it - until one of the contributors at I Luv SA posted it on their blog. Now you have to understand the attitude of taxi drivers in South Africa to really appreciate the post. I’ll try and summarize in one sentence - total disregard for anything that looks, sounds and smells like traffic signals, road signs and markings, flashing lights and sirens on emergency vehicles, highway code - I think you get the idea. Now imagine having this attitude (calling it lawless behaviour isn’t appropriate, as they couldn’t give a rat’s bum about being fined or locked up) whilst driving a vehicle designed for 15 passengers maximum with at least 25 on board (not including those sitting on the laps of others), the condition of the vehicle such that the average breaker yard in the first world wouldn’t want the vehicle for free, as no body panels or components would be recoverable from it.

t3This morning, yours truly, decided to sneak in a pinch of top-secret and highly professional canoe training at Emmerentia dam, before the first farts of the sparrows could escape their imprisoning sphincters, and even before the glories-of-mornings of most non-gay South African men could rise to view the possible prospects of “before work” swims.

Yep, I was up and onto that little patch of water before sunrise, tearing around it at record-breaking pace, sneaking in a wee bit of pre-Duzi training in order to wrestle the crown away from the well slow and soft Martin Dreyer (present Duzi champion, for those of you not in the intellectual canoe mix) next time around.

Anyway, the details of my incredible canoe talent are not up for discussion here, but rather what happened on my drive home after the session, in rush hour traffic and, in particular, on Jan Smuts Avenue near to the Old Parktonian Sports Club around 8am.

I was happily chilling in my car, cruising along at about 60kph, in pretty much bumper-to-bumper traffic, with nobody going anywhere any faster; it was simply not an option. Well, not an option for anyone with a brain, with an ounce of logic within their crania, with a drop of sense inside the membranes of their cerebral hemispheres. You’d think that a creature without a brain would equate to a fly or less, a category that includes mosquitoes, stones, anvils and……taxi drivers.

Yep, enter Sipho “I’m a d—head without a brain cell” Ndlovo, driver of a Toyota Hi-Ace with 4 wheels, 1 brake pad, no lights, half a steering wheel, about 30 people inside and 3 masking-taped windows, standard issue for a South African taxi driver. He had more than likely participated in the demonstration march last month with hundreds of other taxi driver idiots protesting about having had their ‘vehicles’ impounded for not being roadworthy. The rocket-scientists couldn’t understand what wasn’t roadworthy about a taxi with a bobejaan spanner (monkey wrench) for a steering wheel, or one without brakes (they reckon a handbrake is just as good as the foot brake pedal).

Anyway, my mate Sipho decided things weren’t flowing fast enough for him so started weaving in and out of the traffic, arm hanging out of his window like a baboon’s tail hanging from its ring piece. I heard this aeronautical engineer-like taxi driver coming from about 5 cars back, because everyone was hooting and slamming on brakes to avoid the accident that he was trying his damndest to cause.

After he narrowly missed the back of my canoe, as he swerved in behind me, I made a stubborn little vow that he definitely wouldn’t be cutting in front of me like that, and so began the fun and games. The bum-wart first tried the standard tactic of intimidation, just gradually cutting me off, in the typical “you’d better slow down and let me in, or I’ll crash into you” method. Well, I used the typical “Screw you faeces-brain” tactic, with one hand on the hooter, the other flipping the bird at him, with my foot firmly on the accelerator, until he backed down like Mike Catt had done in 1995 when Jonah Lomu ran straight over him (Rugby World Cup).

This had a snowball effect, which had me chuckling the whole way back to my humble abode. Syphilis-face then decided to put all his well acquired driving skill to the test and adopted the smartest technique of them all, the “Eish, I weel ovah-take on the wrong side” method, one that sadly has caused numerous accidents in the past, including the untimely death of one of our awesome mates a year ago. This made old Maccatini madder than a spitting cobra with a red hot cactus lodged up its rectum.

No skin off the taxi drivers nose, he just accelerated more, and tried to cut in front of the double-cab in front of me, this after he had hooted at me and showed me a middle finger accompanied with a few swear words, something that made me want to beat him harder than Campbell hit the gay boy who stabbed him repeatedly with a pen all those years ago!

Well, the fella in front of me had obviously also been observing the proceedings, and likewise refused to let Sipho Ndhlovo in so the acceleration by the monkey continued, while he tried his hardest to outstare the double-cab driver. Sadly for the nuclear physicist the emergency lane was shortly going to end, with a solid stone pavement to mark its ending. More sadly for him was the fact that he, and his 30-odd passengers were all trying their damndest to “intimidate by staring” myself and the double-cab man, instead of watching the road ahead, something that most brain-owners do when driving. I saw it coming, and was smiling my full-tusk smile even before they hit!! Anal-bum-wart hit that pavement at about 70kph, 31 passengers bumped their heads on the roof of the Hi-Ace in poetic unison, adding an extra 31 dents to the already f—ed minibus, and the two front wheels were ripped off the chassis as the bus slid to a delightful halt. Thankfully no passengers were hurt, which made it the most fantastic thing to witness. Sadly though, Sipho, arm still hanging out of the window, was also unscathed.

However, his car was more screwed than that prostitute at PE harbour named Deloris, and his mood was somewhat down-trodden. I hooted and made sure he got the full-frontal of my biggest ever super smile, as did the driver of the double-cab, and then to my absolute joy, looked in my mirror to see every driver behind me doing exactly the same! The brain-cell-lacker had received his well earned treatment! I was happier than the Proteas when they beat the Aussies, or at least as happy!! So folks, what a peachy morning it has been so far. The sun is shining, it’s Friday, I’ve done my training. There will be a lot of thirst quenched this weekend, and Sipho “faeces-face” Ndlovo is one minibus short of a taxi!

Now that is justice….!

Heart transplant history - follow up

An earlier post discussed the falsification of history in the film Hidden Heart.

Die Burger has followed up with two articles which provide more background on the contributions of Hamilton Naki. I have roughly translated the main points:

Annette Evans from Stellenbosch wrote that she worked as research technician in 1961-62 under Dr Chris Barnard. She states that the photo taken of Naki was not in an Operating Room, but in actual fact in a surgical research laboratory in the mortuary in Anzio street - not even situated on the premises of Groote Schuur hospital itself. They referred to the laboratory as the “doglab”, because research was done on dogs.

Hamilton’s (they called him “Hammy”) job was to prepare dogs for surgery by applying general anaesthesia, opening the chest, stop bleeding and closing the incision after the operation. He worked for the surgical research technicians studying under Dr Chris Barnard and Professor Jannie Louw. According to Evans, Hamilton was trustworthy and reliable. He would have gained a lot of experience, as they did numerous operations per week on dogs, but he would never be involved in operations on humans. They loved him and respected him because of his dedication.

Evans reckons the operations carried out on dogs inevitably resulted in the animals suffering, hence the reason for not publicly disclosing the activities of the “doglab”.

In another article, Dr Marius Barnard (the brother of Dr Chris Barnard and who assisted him in the pioneering human heart transplant), said the film which suggests that Hamilton Naki did not receive recognition due to political reasons, is a blatant distortion of the facts. He says it makes a farce of the medical breakthrough achieved by Chris Barnard.

He acknowledged that Naki contributed in the experimental research lab, but the closest he ever came to the Operating Room was about 8km - the distance between the hospital and where Naki stayed.

Mr Hennie Joubert, curator of the heart museum at Groote Schuur, also confirmed that Naki contributed to the research lab activities, but that the movie isn’t factually correct.

Professor Rosemary Hickman, surgeon for more than 30 years at Groote Schuur, said it is a pity that political agenda should triumph over the dedication and hard work of Hamilton Naki - a wonderful opportunity to portray the result of hard work has been undone by making Hamilton a political pawn.

Falsification of History

from South Africa Sucks

Friday saw the release of a film which propagates the preposterous fantasy that Dr Chris Barnard didn’t actually perform the world’s first heart transplant…it was done by Hamilton Naki, his garden boy.

I kid you not folks. This is NOT a Hayibo type satire. The film Hidden Heart deals with the farcical life & times of Groote Schuur garden boy Hamilton Naki. Naki tended the gardens at this world famous hospital in the early sixties when a Dr Robert Goetz took pity on him and promoted him to vivisection lab cleaner and janitor. Goetz performed medical experiments on animals and Naki’s job was also to hold down animals being operated on. So, for the next 30 years, Naki remained on his gardener pay scale until his death in 2005, cleaning the lab and being a gopher for the doctors who performed this miracle of modern science.

Image left: “Doctor” Hamilton Naki

Except, it now turns out that Naki with his Standard 5 education was actually a black wunderkind who in truth performed the heart transplant operation, only for the evil White oppressor to steal all the glory from him! But wait, it gets better! While googling for some background info on Dr Naki (in 2003 he received an honorary medical doctorate from - who else - UCT) I stumbled across this bit of “history”:

Naki credits Goetz as one of his most important teachers. “He taught me all about surgical work, but unfortunately his stay wasn’t long as he had to return to Germany to pursue his research and I was left with the responsibility of teaching surgical research.”

The arrival of Professor Chris Barnard in 1956 was Naki’s second big break. “Barnard began to introduce to South Africa the new techniques of open heart surgery and cardiopulmonary bypass surgery, which he had learned in the US,” says Hickman. Naki initially acted as Barnard’s anaesthetist, where he impressed the heart surgeon with his enthusiasm and an incredible ability to learn, despite his lack of formal education. Within months, he had been appointed Barnard’s principal surgical assistant.

“Despite his limited education, he had an amazing ability to learn anatomical names and recognise anomalies,” Hickman says. Apart from a skilled assistant, Naki cherishes his role as an educator. “In my so-called career as a surgical research lecturer, I taught more than three thousand professors,” he says proudly.

Anaesthetist and chief surgical assistant, and thereafter a surgical research lecturer who trained three thousand professors, all with a Standard 5 education? Clearly Dr Naki was so innately brilliant, he didn’t NEED any education!

Wikipedia quotes Dr Barnard as allegedly saying that “Naki had a steadier hand and superior technical ability than I had”.

In the movie, several interviews are held with Naki. Early on, he claims that he was present during the historical heart op, and even that he was the surgeon who removed the donor heart from a young White woman. The truth however is that Dr Marius Barnard (Chris Barnard’s brother) removed the heart. During a later interview in the movie, Naki completely contradicts himself by saying that he wasn’t present during the op because racist Apartheid legislation forbade him from attending. The entire premise of the movie is that Naki was a brilliant surgeon “kept down by the evil White man” and that Dr Barnard stole Naki’s achievement, and conspired with the Nat government to keep the truth of this supposedly remarkable black man hidden away.

Image: Dr Christiaan Barnard

It seems blacks are not content with stealing the White man’s property, his cities & towns while pissing all over his heritage. Now they need to steal his achievements as well. George Orwell’s character Winston Smith worked in the Ministry of Truth, his job being that of erasing history and rewriting it according to party edicts. Original documents that were replaced, were shoved into the “memory hole” which was a tube that led to an incinerator. It seems the villainous Dr Barnard and the unpalatable truth around the world’s first heart transplant has just been discarded into the ‘memory hole’, in favour of a “truth” more in line with the Marxist ANC and its running dogs.

Youtube has a few Spanish language propaganda videos (produced by Cubans) claiming the same ridiculous bullshit. One doesn’t know whether to laugh or to cry…

The article below is from the movie’s webpage:

Christian Barnard from Cape Town didn’t write the great success-story of the first heart transplantation in 1967 alone. Hamilton Naki, a black man, was equally part of the sensational operation. «Hidden Heart» tells the story of two men, glamour, injustice and uprising.

On 3 December 2007, it will have been 40 years since the first transplant of a human heart was performed in South Africa. This transplant operation triggered a media response like few other events in the 20th century. Christian Barnard, the lead surgeon, became an internationally celebrated star overnight. A gifted self-promoter, charming and eloquent, he managed to maintain his star status until his death. He found himself welcomed into the circles of the rich and powerful in the entertainment industry, the business world as well as politics.

In the photographs showing the team following the heart transplant, the faces in the picture are all white. No mention is made of the black employees, who conducted the earlier experiments on dog hearts in the animal research lab. Experiments which were of essential importance to the eventual success of the human transplant. While they were not present in the operating theatre, it was their work that laid the foundations for the transplant. One of them was Hamilton Naki.

Up until the end of Apartheid 1994, Barnard was able to bask in the glory alone. Yet in the new democratic South Africa, the traumatic past was reopened from various sides and prominent events and achievements came under renewed scrutiny. Suddenly the name Hamilton Naki popped up in connection with the operation. National and international media latched onto the story of Naki, who fit the bill perfectly as an example of an unsung hero. Naki, moreover, gave us an entirely new version of the historic transplant operation. He claimed to have been present in the operating theatre. Barnard had allowed this, Naki explained, under the condition that he not tell a soul.

Like Barnard, Naki suddenly found himself besieged by journalists, accompanied by glory and fame that likewise came out of the blue. In recognition of this contribution and for his role leading up to the first heart transplant, the University of Cape Town conferred an honorary degree on Naki, the first time in its history it had ever done so for someone without an academic background. Thabo Mbeki awarded him the most important national order.

«Hidden Heart» will combine their career paths in the respective political context. The goal is not to assert that Naki could have been a Barnard were it not for Apartheid. Yet the goal is to work out undeniable parallels in the character of the two men, to show the possibilities for professional development within the political system and the way they each dealt with it and what they made of it. And finally, the film will attempt to show how history can be rewritten when a system seemingly cemented in place for eternity, falls apart.

The story of the two men not only recounts the heart transplant in a new light but also shows how determination and discipline – characteristics possessed by both men – can move mountains. The mountain moved by Barnard went down in the history books but this does not make Naki’s achievements any less – when recounted in the political context of the time. «Heart of Gold» knows no taboos, neither in its treatment of Naki nor of Barnard. The two are to be examined critically yet fairly through a multifaceted kaleidoscope of testimonials from carefully chosen witnesses from the period.
