Whites-only enclave resurrects old pains
The Washington Post ^ | July 23, 2013 | Sudarsan Raghavan

KLEINFONTEIN, South Africa — At the entrance to this rural settlement is a well-kept shrine to the primary architect of apartheid. Nearby rests an old wheelbarrow, a symbol of the white Afrikaners who once ruled the country. Inside the coffee shop, at the bank, everywhere, there are only white faces.

A white security guard, wearing gray camouflage, checks cars at a gate on the main road. Race is a key factor for entry. No blacks are allowed to buy or rent houses here.

The Boer people do not have to be misled by this Afrikaner & White led enclave because they can reclaim their old Boer Republics [ obviously not all of the same land they had in the 19th cent - but much of it ] which they have been trying to do since the Maritz Rebellion of 1914. Robert van Tonder left the National Party in 1961 [ the same year the dangerous Dutch born socialist Hendrik Verwoerd turned South Africa into a nominal or false republic ] in order to advocate full time for the restoration of the Boer Republics. The terms White & Afrikaner were terms promoted by the British & the politicians in order to destroy the identity of the Boers & lump them in with the Cape Dutch & Anglophones so that they could all take the blame for the Apartheid psy-op implemented originally by the British. The Boers lost half of their child population in the British concentration camps during the second Anglo-Boer War.

Key sentence later on in the article:

They insist that they are not racist, noting that they don’t welcome Jews, Catholics or any English speakers, either.

Freedom of association. No government goods or services are being issued in a discriminatory manner.

And it’s none of our business.

I thought this was about Chris Matthews hometown, Chevy Chase, MD.

From the article:

But he added that the government needs to avoid antagonizing South Africa’s white minority, which still largely controls the economy.

I ask all, does part of that sound familiar????

Another point. Leave them alone.

There are black only “communities” here in America today as well. Anyone can take their whitey butt into some of the FERAL Government funded hoods and just see how long it lasts.

Or for that case, try South LA or another part of this great country that has been over run by illegal invaders from south of the border.

Why would blacks want to go where they aren’t wanted?

Probably because even they would be safer there.

If these people wish to be separate why should that bother anyone else?

Probably because they are more successful than those on the outside.

Oh look — meme-building to equate “apartheid” with gated communities, and the death of, say, Steve Biko with that of Trayvon Martin. Partisan Media Shills ping.

Thanks MinorityRepublican.

So what? Is the writer insisting that we have to force multiculturalism by eliminating whites?

I generally agree with you. Problem is, government goods and services (and now ObamaCare) are pervasive throughout society. If any group of people gets the tiniest subsidy or tax break, its freedom of association is at risk.

Practically every group, including conservative churches and libertarian think tanks, gets a tax break from the government. Congress — and greedy voters — make sure that just about every group gets something.

Once the subsidy table is set, liberal lawmakers and judges decide who gets which civil rights. Conservative groups get the closest scrutiny.

So there goes freedom of association.

There are no African Americans within 200 miles of my community; just Indians & Whites. No crime, no problems, no racial games, yet still the Whites & Indians both prefer to live 8 miles apart in their own small enclaves. There are a couple exceptions but for the most part everybody chooses to live with their own. I myself spend more time with the Indians than Whites, but I’d never want to live in their village. Can’t figure? Just human nature I believe.

Hate to say it but the Whites should leave South Africa.

I think they are leaving in droves. I know 2 that moved here about 1995. They told me that it was a nightmare living there. Their wives were afraid to close their eyes to wash their face in the shower. That was in a locked house with a wall all the way around it.

One of them told me BMW means break my windows. It was a joke but not really.

South African Jews have been bailing out since at least the 1970s. There was a large community of expats/emigres here in the ATL area by the mid-80s, when I first became aware of the phenomenon.

Makes sense. But the time the ‘70s rolled around, Apartheid was no longer sustainable. Then the ‘80s came so it was on the last legs. If it wasn’t for Nelson Mandela, all the Whites would have been driven to the sea.

Debatable, but it would have been ugly no matter the outcome.

Still is likely to be. They’re a decade or so behind Zim.

Funny... Chevy Chase is probably still at <1% black, but it does have a very substantial Jewish population.
