One by one the last white farmers are being beaten into submission. Four more had their farms seized by marauding gangs last week.
They do not want us whites, one farmer said.
Finaughty, 43, will never forget how his world came crashing down. One moment at his Manda farm there was stillness. Then came a burst of noise and confusion. A screaming, drunken mob hammered at the gates.
Armed mobs encouraged by Robert Mugabe and his cronies forced Ray Finaughty and
his family off their land
It was the climax of a two-year eviction campaign against him. He had fought step by step in the courts. Their judgments in his favour were all ignored. With no respect for the rule of law in Zimbabwe, he finally lost the battle.
Armed with spears and sticks, a mob threatened him and his wife, Loraine, by driving a tractor against the gate of their home. Were going to kill you, they said. The family were given 10 minutes to pack their lifes belongings.
It was not the first attack that Finaughty had weathered. In one savage beating his attackers suggested breaking his legs as he lay injured in a field. Leave him. Hes dead, he heard one of them say.
Finaughty crawled away and saved himself. He had four broken ribs and concussion.
Another time, acting in self-defence, he had to shoot dead an armed robber who broke into his farmhouse. The police were sympathetic and took no action. But they treated the seizure of his farm differently.
This is political. Its a hot potato. We cant get involved, said Vengisai, the chief inspector, when Finaughty contacted his office.
So the Finaughty family drove away from the farm they loved. Soon, they believe, much of the

Friends of Obama on the march.
I think Obama has the same thing planned for US.
Summers are nice in ND... BOTH days!
Your bank and your bank account are two different animals.
I knew that there was something wrong with Tsvangirai. The idea of him standing up for freedom was too good to be true. He just parroted freedom to gain media coverage and put himself in power. He didn't give a rat's end what happened to his people. The name "Movement for Democratic Change" should remind you of another leader's movementa mobocracy movement much closer to home.
In reality, Tsvangirai and Mugabe are two despots competing for the same throne.
The whiteys should raze the farmhouses and farm equipment when they leave. Give these uncivilized mobsters nothing to produce food.
Then, you’d be screwed NOW!
The title is a take-off from a forgettable book with an unforgettable name:
“If you read the article, you’ll see that he tried to “work with” the regime that wants him and his family dead.”
We work with Democrats, and believe me they would have Republican leaders (and their families) DEAD also, if they thought that they could figure out a way to pull it off.
It’s not that much different here.
It's not like he posted that on April 15. It's just a matter of degree. We only have about HALF of ours confiscated. So far. It is human nature to sit here and say, "I would have left years ago", but the creeping incrementalism is happening to us also, just much more subtly. Just like the farmers, we sit here hoping it doesn't happen.
“I dont play politics. I believe we whites are in Africa as visitors, he said.
It isn’t just the government oppression of the individual. State, federal, and local governments are in an all out war against the private sector that creates the standard of living most of us enjoy in this country. Increasing regulation, a broken tort legal system, taxes at every level, “free trade” policies, the dumbing down of the education system, a crumbling infrastructure, limited access to capital are all serving to choke the life out of small businesses and discourage potential new capitalists from starting businesses.
Sounds like Mugabe’s a racist?
......He had fought step by step in the courts. .....
Tyranny of the law
Tyranny of the lawyers.
Tyranny of the law by lawyers is here in America now.
Another Jimmy Carter legacy.
And Africa wins again.
A man like that should have a country to call home. Makes me wish that the US was that country, but we aren’t anymore. Maybe again someday.
Could you imagine the reaction of the racists in this country if whiteys fleeing persecution in Africa were given refugee status here?
And yes, I think it would be a good idea. These people, unlike almost all of the refugees we currently import, actually have some useful skills and I think they would fit right in on farms in the USA.
You mean it's not? That's what they teach in AZ schools. :-)
There’s more than one reason why Africa is referred to as the dark continent.
Just curious - which country are you planning to emigrate to and when are you and your family planning to leave?
Buy tickets. Send your family *anywhere* else. Then burn and destroy everything on your farm and make your escape as possible.
New Zealand. Getting to know the relatives there, just in case.
One of the most lefty places on earth. Suicide by p.c. just like the U.S. Not a very good choice IMO.
Dude, New Zealand ranks fourth in economic freedom as set by the Heritage Foundation. That’s four places ahead of the US. It’s just the Heritage Foundation’s opinion, I know, but they’re pretty good about these things.
I’ll miss guns and antibiotics, though.
Feel the black love.
any peckerwoods left in Rhodesia?
Have you ever been there, “Dude?” I would suggest a visit. They were so over the top p.c. 20 yrs. ago, my husband and I found the population’s attitude unbearable. There’s a lot more to life than economic freedom which the US has and is certainly losing rapidly.
whites have been in Southern Africa since mid 1600s
and in EVERY African nation both Negroid and Arab/Berber, the euro-white population is shrinking markedly
Africa is reverting back to it's natural state prior to white colonizers in half a millennium or so
hope everyone is happy..it's The Great Trek all over again except leaving for good this time
*Just kidding ;)*
I agree with you 100%. It's like a flippin' freight train barreling down the tracks picking up BS and Bolshevism as it goes...Lord, help us.
Ding ding ding ding ding! We have a winner!! Seriously though, I have a friend who was born in South Africa, and when the situation became very dangerous, she applied for asylum in the US. Everything was going beautifully, UNTIL it was discovered that she was white! Her application was denied.
The same things ARE happening here. Look at most cities and inner ring suburbs. Whitey flight is rampant in the USA now. I do think as long as we have the Second Amendment, we are relatively safe.
Only one way to find out. That’s why I’m going.
