Robert Mugabe says no whites may own land in Zimbabwe
CS Monitor ^ | July 3, 2014

Posted on 07/04/2014 5:47:26 PM PDT by xzins

“I have been given a list of 35 white farmers in Mashonaland West alone,” Mr. Mugabe told an emotional crowd in what was billed a patriotic speech. “We say no to whites owning our land and they should go. …

Mugabe, reelected last summer to his fifth consecutive term,

“There are white farmers who are still on the land and have the protection of some cabinet ministers and politicians as well as traditional leaders. That should never happen. They [whites] were living like kings and queens on our land and we chucked them out. Now we want all of it.”

At the turn of the century Mugabe, a former guerrilla leader, unleashed waves of violent land acquisition by war veterans aligned to his political party. Thousands of white commercial farmers were forced out under a so-called “indigenization” land reform policy.

Since then, Zimbabwe has been in an economic tailspin, with banks collapsing and with the government unable to pay the wages of many in the civil sector.

Much of the land previously taken by those in the Mugabe regime has benefited the security, police and military wings of the leader’s circle.

This has been going on in Zimbabwe for years. Cathy Buckle has been righting about the loss of her farm and the farms of her neighbors for at least 15 years.

Many of the former employees stand with the former farmers because they know that Mugabe’s way is the way of starvation and poverty.

Classic scapegoating from another oppressive tyrant to focus anger and responsibility away from himself.

Sort of like the projection of the Democrat party and Obama.

I love Mugabe. A perfect example of what is possible. We can all watch from a distance. Thuggery works in most of the world. Someday a leader os going to call for someone’s ouster and it will start a chain reaction for freedom. All we need to do is insist that they take names b4 they kick A$$.

Never; many know without whites they’d be living like Somalis (no indoor plumbing, sanitation, education, medicine). What they want here is an idle life of luxury.

The main difference is that, in contrast to our "President," Mugabe is only mildly retarded.

At the end of the British Rule and during the time it was called Rhodesia, this area was a food exporter with very productive farms and ranches. The odds say that there has to be at least some successful native farmers now but Mugabe will destroy them along with the rest of the country as he sells it to the Chinese. Failing Despots reach out to their peers and China has the money.

Mugabe needs the white farmers to blame for his failures. Before Mugabe Rhodesia was the breadbasket of Africa, producing much more food than they consumed. Now the country is in economic ruin and at one time had 1000% inflation PER DAY.

A lot of the Rhodesian farmers relocated to Zambia and Mozambique where they were actively recruited by the national government to produce badly needed food the locals just weren’t up to growing. The farmers put conditions on their relocation, however, only short-term leases on the land, no ownership and a quick escape route in case things turn sour. Mugabe has done very well in all this, he is a major league thief who has squirreled billions abroad, a typical “communist” first among equals with an emphasis on the “first”.

Several families of Rhodesian farmers move to the Houston area too. One of them lived next door to my brother. They had some scary stories to tell.

Not one penny of foreign aid should ever be paid to bail
out the starving criminal assholes of Zimbabwe. They killed
and dispossessed white farmers of land they had cultivated
for 300 years. Starve and die you evil bastards.

I watched several documentaries on out right tyranny of Mugabe. I’m surprised they haven’t taken him out. In a country hostile to you, you must have some sense of unity.

“They killed and dispossessed white farmers of land they had cultivated for 300 years. Starve and die you evil bastards.”

It is a little more complicated than that; many black workers stayed on those farms to work (wanting a better life than begging), and the Mugabe supporters literally beat them off the farms before chasing the whites off. There are black victims here, too; many are fleeing to South Africa as refugees.

We should just arm an opposition to the teeth. Not nation-building (we wouldn’t even follow up on it with a phone call); just arm them and let nature take its course.

Over there they say “you’re white!” and take away your livelihood by force.

Here they say you’re blowing a dog whistle and your “disparate impact” is a few percentage points off. Then they take away your livelihood by force.

Zimbabwe used to grow enough food to export all around Africa.

Now, with the blacks in control & the whites driven out, Zimbabwe IMPORTS about 90% of all it’s daily needs.
