Gang rape video goes viral, shocking South Africa
AFP ^ | April 18, 2012

Posted on 04/18/2012 11:38:22 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

A video of a 17-year-old girl being gang raped spread by cell phones through South Africa on Wednesday, shocking a nation battling an epidemic of violence against women.

The girl was reported missing in late March and was apparently raped last week in the Johannesburg township of Soweto, police said.

Reporters from the tabloid Daily Sun brought the video to the attention of police, who found the girl on Wednesday and began arresting suspects.

"She was found with another man in his house," Warrant Officer Kay Makhubele told the Sapa news agency.

"Obviously she is traumatised and we are going to take her to the doctor now," he said.

The girl has the mental capacity of a four-year-old, according to the Eyewitness News website.

Watching the video is a crime under South Africa's child pornography law.

The Star newspaper reported online that the video lasts 10 minutes and 33 seconds, showing her being raped by seven different males, as she screams: "You are forcing me, you are forcing me."

The video's spread has forced South Africa to confront its staggering incidence of rape. More than 56,000 cases were reported to police last year.

I have to assume the victim is white since they don’t mention race. I could be wrong, but it’s the safe assumption.

Ruth Bader Ginsberg thinks SA has a better constitution than ours. Let’s see how that works out for them.

At least they no longer have apartheid in SA looks like they continue to make a lot of good progress.

I didn’t make a guess about the victim-could just as likely be either race in South Africa-but I’d bet money the rapists are black.

From the article:

The same survey found more than one quarter of South African men admitted to raping a woman or girl.

Rape is part of the African tradition among the native people. You can bet that virtually no South Africans of European decent made up any part of that 25% that admitted to being a rapist. You really have to wonder why any Caucasian people remain in this country. South Africa is doomed to be Zimbabwe in another decade or so (maybe less).

I can’t help seeing the irony in the fact that the widow of the man who wrote the book “Cry The Beloved Country” decrying the evils of apartheid, high-tailed it back to England once post-apartheid society was in full swing. Her husband died too soon to feel the full benefit of the “brave new world” he so wanted to inflict on other whites there. I wonder if he’d be joining Jacob Zuma in a rousing chorus of “kill the white man, kill the Boer”?

This only got our attention because it got put on You Tube. Much worse happens every single day in South Africa, to children, infants, the elderly. You wouldn’t believe some of the atrocities committed because of barbaric superstitions-this in the formerly only truly first world nation on that continent.

How is this shocking unless you haven’t heard anything about South Africa before? It’s not only known for rape, but for baby rape, which is common in all of Africa. It’s a disgusting place.

The Leftist media has completely misled much of the world on what Apartheid was actually all about. It was not--not at all--what has been represented. (See comments in "Diversity" In Context: Reality vs. Leftist Fantasy.)

Frankly, I believe that Alan Paton's book was written before the Apartheid policy was even announced--although it might have been about the same time. (The policy, by the way, was never actually fully implemented. Some of what people were busy denouncing, would have been eliminated, had the policy been fully implemented.)

This was obtained through google News. I guess it's for real.

Techno-Gizmos for the Elimination of Rape

"The “Rape Capital of the World” is currently South Africa, with a University of South Africa study estimating 2,777 rapes per day, for a total of 1 million a year. The South African Law Commission asserts the figure is considerably higher: 1.69 million per year. Journalist, rape survivor, and anti-rape activist Charlene Smith claims that a South African woman is raped every 26 seconds; 40% of the victims are children, and 65% are gang-raped, aka “jackrolled.” Human Rights Watch reports that 28% of South African males has admitted to sexual assault, in this nation where 16.9% of the adult population is HIV/AIDS infected. To combat this atrocity, the citizenry invented two retaliatory devices. . . . "

The IEET is a 501(c)3 non-profit, tax-exempt organization registered in the State of Connecticut in the United States.

As I recall the anti-car jacking devices were also invented in SA . . . .

Pick up the movie "Blood Diamond." In the movie, when someone sees something like a million refugees starving to death, child soldiers, slaves mining diamonds to buy ammo and guns, the standard response is "T.I.A." (This Is Africa) as this explains it all.

Same place everyone else goes I guess, to the US, Europe or Canada. At least 25% of the population here in the West doesn't openly admit to raping women/girls. South Africa is only going to get worse.

This was actually in a movie I have. Not this product but the concept. I can't remember the name but it was about a couple stranded on an island and the wife knew she would be raped by the perps. She took a bottle broke it and placed it you know where. It worked.

The South African Bantu tribes have/had very definite cultures. The problem with a place like Soweto is that it is detribalized--the tribal restraints are gone. It is a glaring example of something that the much maligned "Apartheid" system, was intended to correct. Unfortunately it was not implemented. Put another way, Soweto reflects the triumph of Leftist "idealism," where people are no longer restrained by traditional values.

But see my reply #19, above.

I saw alot in Iraq - things that were hidden - come to think about it - the same could be said for Kuwait and Saudi Arabia...I often thought to myself that it would be far easier to remove the primary element in these crimes - I’m sure the women and children would greatly appreciate it!

That's a good question, but where would they go? Since the 1960s, the western world supported the destruction of white south africa. Holland recently said that they don't want the south african dutch, even though they are their own people. Holland takes in loads of anti-social morroccan immigrants instead. Of course it would be better for them to take south african immigrants, but they won't do that. Why? Would Canada take in a large number of south african whites? They could certainly use them. But in reality, they are busy processing somalian immigrants (who are later found foating in the athabasca river -- drug deals gone bad, it's a cultural thing.)

Hot flash: "Amish" is a code. We are not allowed to be truthful, even here. I'm reasonably sure you understand that the Amish meme was chosen because it is diametrically opposite of that-which-must-not-be-named tribal, sub-civilized culture.

Leftists have spent 50 years trying to either tame, or at least camouflage their pet voting block, even as they keep bribing them with your money.

The Alpha Males of their species have decided, though, with whatever passes for intellect, that a race war will, somehow, accomplish the goal of a true African America. I don't believe they will be happy with the results.

At best, it may end with forced emigration or re-segregation. I don't want to think what the worst could be.

Look at the Spanish Civil War, or the collapse of Yugoslavia. It ain't gonna end like Appomattox.

Obviously, I understand that for some baffling reason some people need to use a "code" word. I was little aggressive with Navy Patriot, who I don't know and shouldn't of lashed at him or her.

Putting aside the South African subject of this thread, there's a bunch of problems in America. And the criminality and cultural behavior of a lot of black people is one of the problems.

If we can't even point that out openly, and have to use code language to talk about it, then it's over. We are truly done at that point.

With me it is just a snarky swipe at the MSM (Lamestream media) who cannot print or release an article that gives a racial and class description of the perpetrator of a crime or the statistical reports of the racial and class characteristics of the convicted perps.

I, of course, choose Amish because there is general knowledge in the population of the racial, ethnic, lifestyle, faith, and deportment details of Amish individuals.

It's not that I don't have the courage to speak out in detail, it's that the MSM doesn't have that courage even though they DO have that responsibility.

The language I use describes the perception that the MSM (and Marxist Rats) want the American people to have when they read a MSM story. I just use words that enable normal people to see that the perception is impossibly wrong.

The MSM wants readers to assume racist white perps, innocent black child victims, as usual in racist America. Toss in Amish and everybody thinks twice, Wait! That's ridiculous! Oh, now I get it.

Try being "honest," and use simply direct one syllable words, that leave no doubt what you are referring to.

You'll be shot out of the saddle faster than you could say "Malcom X."

We, as a united country, have lost. There are three bottomless chasms in this country. Those are between whites, blacks, and latinos. Mexico wants their part of the United States back. The one they lost by conquest in 1836 and 1848. (Now that the Gringos have made it all worth something.) The Left, who doesn't believe in all this 'border' nonsense, anyhow, has no problem with this. (Personally, I think the idea of them trying to somehow rebuild the California economy is crazy. I'd say, "Let'um try..."

The Blacks want all of what's left, with the idea that, somehow, in the face of the obvious inability of their brothers back home to run a country at a profit, that they can steal all the wealth they had 'stolen' from them by "the Bosses" or "Whitey" or whoever else they can blame for their own failure to join the rest of American culture.

We are screwed, tight. You are going to live long enough, perhaps, to see this experiment end. I'll bet all the Afrikaners never expected that it would collapse so fast.
