Australia Welcomes African Refugees

No one seems especially to care about what happens to white South African farmers. No one except for the government of Australia.

Now that South Africa has chosen to follow the example of Zimbabwe, it is seizing the lands of white farmers… the better to redistribute the wealth. Said farmers are also being murdered… by whom, we do not know.

The Guardian has the story.

White South African farmers “deserve special attention” from Australia due to the “horrific circumstances” of land seizures and violence, Peter Dutton has said.

The home affairs minister told the Daily Telegraph on Wednesday his department was examining a range of methods to fast-track their path to Australia on humanitarian or other visa programs.

South Africa’s new president, Cyril Ramaphosa, is pursuing legal changes to allow appropriation of farm lands without compensation for redistribution to black South Africans.

The policy has led to reports, including in the Australian media, that white farmers are being murdered at a rate of more than one per week.

“If you look at the footage and read the stories, you hear the accounts, it’s a horrific circumstance they face,” Dutton said.

The home affairs minister noted Australia has refugee, humanitarian and other visa programs which have the “potential to help some of these people”. He said he had asked his department to look at the options “because from what I have seen they do do need help from a civilised country like ours”.

The refugees would be welcomed into Australia as persecuted refugees.

What do our American smart people say?

Afrikaners during the apartheid era predicted this exact scenario would come to pass. Our media smarties rolled their eyes and called them racists.

Where is Desmond Tutu now? Retired. How convenient. Where is Mandela? Dead.

There is no hope.

Our media is populated with ideological idiots, phonies who don’t give a hoot about the human impact of their ideas. It may sound nice to give blacks the keys to the kingdom, but one is foolish to do so without recognizing the risk. South Africa was always a celebrity cause that no one really understood. Now there will be pain and death, just like Zimbabwe.

Africa is a hell hole. I have no interest in going there. No need to say South Africa is a shithole yet, because my understanding is that it is beautiful. But it is fast becoming a hell hole. Then It will becom a shithole.

The Aussies are smart on this one. Our American refugee policy is to bring in people who hate America and won’t assimilate.

The SA government has ignored the important lesson: Never go full Zimbabwe.

Despite their mineral wealth, SA is likely to end up in the same boat as Venezuela with a lot of Zimbabwe thrown in - natural resource rich but poverty-stricken because the government got rid of the people who knew how to run things. That SA is going to do the same thing Zimbabwe did means they should expect the same outcome.

In regards to the white South African refugees, I think the US should allow them in under refugee status. My son has worked with a number of South Africans who were working at his farm under an Ohio State Agriculture Science internship program. They were hard working and they already knew what they were doing.

What's ironic about all of this is that the two major tribes that inhabit South Africa aren't originally from there. They migrated from the north long after the Boers settled there. Much of South Africa was uninhabited when the Boers arrived 400 years ago.
