Survival of the whitest: inside an Afrikaner boot camp
The Telegraph ^ | 18 Nov 2011 | Elles van Gelder

Posted on 12/10/2011 1:28:13 PM PST by MinorityRepublican

Thick clouds of diesel smoke fill the air outside a rundown guest farm, three hours’ drive east of Johannesburg.

As the stench dissipates, a group of boys, aged between 13 and 19, spill from the bed of a rusty truck, lugging huge bags full of military clothing.

'There are old bloodstains on my uniform,’ one of them says, as he trades his trainers for army boots.

Shouted orders ring out. Groaning, the boys raise 15ft tent poles among the cowpats dotting the grassland. The large army tent that they put up will be their home for the next nine days.

South African teenagers often go off to camp during school holidays to learn how to start fires, build huts and identify animal tracks. But this survival camp is different. Here, the focus is on the survival of white South Africans.

The participants are all Afrikaners, descendants of Dutch, German and French colonists. They are also all children of the 'born-free’ generation, born after 1990 into a multiracial South Africa.

What we really need are more stories showing how evil and racist the white folks be.

Not giving this guy a pass, but considering that it’s open season on whites in SA, I can understand this.

From what has been happening ion South Africa, I would say it’s time to learn to protect themselves.

Self defense is a noble enough idea but to do so in a strictly racial context is just evil. This group sounds like the mirror image of the black panthers here. What South Aficans should be doing is teaching physical self defense along with political self defense, helping kids of both races recognize identity politics and socialism as the root of what’s keeping the country back and breeding the violence. Guess we should be doing that here too.

This Jooste fellow is a Ignorant Racist POS.

“’Aside from the Aborigines in Australia, the African black is the most underdeveloped, barbaric member of the human race on earth,’ he tells the boys during one of his lectures.”

“’Who are these creatures? The blacks.’ Jooste goes on to tell the boys that black people have a smaller cerebral cortex than whites, and thus cannot take initiative or govern effectively.”

“”He picks up the South African flag, which was adopted in 1994, and lays it before the entrance to the mess hall like a doormat. He orders the boys to wipe their filthy boots on it.””

“Self defense....I see nothing wrong with this.”

Not self defense, but just plain ignorance and 99.17% of the South African people understand that Kommandokorps and Freedom Front Plus party ignorant racists.

And yes South Africa, having .83% of your population with people of the Kommandokorps and Freedom Front Plus party mindset is far too many.

You’re about 300 years late with that recommendation.

Nope. I don’t think you know what’s going on there.

My wife is from South Africa - although neither Afrikanner nor English. (She’s of Italian descent.) I’ve been there and talked with Afrikanners.

The core truth, in my opinion, is that the Afrikanners are a tribal people now, like the other people of Africa. They gather together in a common cultural tradition - like the Sotho, Zulus, and other African tribes, and for that matter the Chinese, Jews, Indians, and mixed race people of South Africa. It’s something that is jarring to the American sensibility, but tribal affiliation permeates the place.

The military response by the Afrikanners is also predictable. The Bantu people around them have long traditions of military conquest and war. The Afrikanners are now part of the tribal stew down there.

It also tells me that they’ll be left alone, simply based on respect for their tribal cohesion and ability to defend themselves. Better that than what’s happened to their distant ancestors in Europe, who have become faded images of themselves.

Just who do you think has the motivation to carry out this fantasy ?

I know that was a bit of fantasy as I was typing it, I shouldn’t comment when I’m tired. But in all honesty, up until a couple weeks ago I was hoping Herman Cain could put a dent in the situation, at least. His election would have punched a gaping hole in the Left’s domination of the race issue.

In the absence of leadership, basically it’s up to us.

Not self defense, but just plain ignorance

"What you say doesn't agree with my preconceived notions" == "You're ignorant". It gets tiresome hearing this Leftist line of reasoning.

Given what's been happening to whites right next door in Zimbabwe, their viewpoint seems very rational.

I take it that you agree with Jooste when he says:

“’Who are these creatures? The blacks.’ Jooste goes on to tell the boys that black people have a smaller cerebral cortex than whites, and thus cannot take initiative or govern effectively.”

Joost is a racist and a moron and thankfully his ilk can not even garner 1% of the vote in South Africa.

The falsity of his position on effective governance is readily evident when one observes the efficient, well-run, prosperous countries of sub-Saharan Africa.

Look up Botswana. They aren't doing too badly now.
