An outbreak of xenophobic violence, also known as ethnic cleansing, has resulted in the murders of 56 people and forced thousands more to take shelter in camps, community halls and churches across South Africa the victims are foreigners who are strictly forbidden from owning guns.
Foreigners in Gauteng Province are suffering from gunshot and stab wounds, while many others have been raped, fatally beaten and burned alive.
Thomas Eastes, national chairman of Gun Owners of South Africa, said foreigners are unable to defend themselves from such atrocities because they are not allowed to be armed in South Africa. He believes the rise in crime and chaos is chiefly a result of the Firearms Control Act passed by the South African Parliament.
"Arming foreigners and as many citizens in South Africa will surely provide an equal opportunity of survival for all," Eastes said. "The weak, the marginalised, the oppressed and frail have a chance of survival if they are armed. I believe that firearm ownership places great responsibility on people but also enables foreigners and legal citizens not to live in fear."
Approximately 22,000 people are murdered annually in the country for being of another race, Eastes said. Some are killed because they own cars or $5 cell phones.
"Five-year-old babies are raped and sodomised as a perceived traditional remedy for curing AIDS," he said. "Women are objects of abuse, and our children are badly neglected every day. People are tortured and murdered to set examples and create fear. This is what communism thrives on."
Foreigners from Zimbabwe escape to South Africa to avoid state bloodshed, terror, persecution, kidnapping and starvation. More than 15,000 refugees have been displaced by state violence since the end of March. Zimbabwean Collen Makumbirofa of the Foundation of Reason and Justice said the situation is

I guess they’re practicing for the UN conference on racism.
The vast majority of crimes are black on black violence and black on white crimes. Don't ya just love it how the media "neglects" to mention the race of the perps in this new wave of violence? It's just called "racist violence", they show the victims who are black Zimbabweans or Somalis, and compare it to the Apartheid. There are more than a few people who think it's whites doing the killing.
No, some of us realize that it’s blacks killing blacks in the most horrific fashion they can think of. Some of those tribal groups are nothing more than upright animals.
After all we have been perfecting how to be a victim, they already have it down.
I meant people in general, not FReepers, of course. I encountered several folks (some of them liberals of course) who thought this is white on black racism.

Free South Africa!
You anti-gun idiots might keep this in mind because your grandkids, great-grandkids might be subjected to this very thing. Would you like for this to happen to them? and don’t say that wouldn’t happen here. Guess again. If the useless UN decides, anything can happen.
Not too many animals behave like this. Savages might be a better description. Pastor Wright and his cohorts ought to complain about this instead of how life is so bad in the US. They should be grateful they aren't i that hell hole.
I went to Africa and it's beautiful and to us quaint but to actually have to live so primitively is another matter. Out in the bush people walk for miles just to get water and they live in mud huts that haven't changed for centuries. I'd like to see what Pastor Wright and his ilk would say if they had their choice to either stop criticizing the US or go live in Africa.
The left wants the hell-hole Gitmo shut down. Let’s do it. Send the current occupants to set up housekeeping in South Africa.
Tell em, just outlaw crime and violence, works every time. sarc
I’m sure that suffering from gunshot and stab wounds would really make you mad - but if I had been raped, fatally beaten and burned alive - I’d be fit to be tied!
