A Warning For America From South Africa

January 2005

By Gemma Meyer (Gemma Meyer is the pseudonym of a South African journalist. She and her husband, a former conservative member of parliament, still reside in South Africa.)

People used to say that South Africa was 20 years behind the rest of the Western world. Television, for example, came late to South Africa (but so did pornography and the gay rights movement).

Today, however, South Africa may be the grim model of the future Western world, for events in America reveal trends chillingly similar to those that destroyed our country.

America's structures are Western. Your Congress, your lobbying groups, your free speech, and the way ordinary Americans either get involved or ignore politics are peculiarly Western, not the way most of the world operates. But the fact that only about a third of Americans deem it important to vote is horrifying in light of how close you are to losing your Western character.

Writing letters to the press, manning stands at county fairs, hosting fund-raising dinners, attending rallies, setting up conferences, writing your Congressman - that is what you know, and what you are comfortable with. Those are the political methods you've created for yourselves to keep your country on track and to ensure political accountability.

But woe to you if - or more likely, when - the rules change. White Americans may soon find themselves unable or unwilling to stand up to challenge the new political methods that will be the inevitable result of the ethnic metamorphosis now taking place in America. Unable to cope with the new rules of the game - violence, mob riots, intimidation through accusations of racism, demands for proportionality based on racial numbers, and all the other social and political weapons used by the have-nots to bludgeon treasure and power from the haves - Americans, like others before them, will no doubt cave in. They will compromise away their independence and ultimately their way of life.

That is exactly what happened in South Africa. I know, because I was there and I saw it happen.

Faced with revolution in the streets, strikes, civil unrest and the sheer terror and murder practiced by Nelson Mandela's African National Congress (ANC), the white government simply capitulated in order to achieve "peace."

Westerners need peace. They need order and stability. They are builders and planners. But what we got was the peace of the grave for our society.

The Third World is different - different peoples with different pasts and different cultures. Yet Westerners continue to mistake the psychology of the Third World and its peoples. Sierra Leone and Zimbabwe are perfect examples of those mistakes. Sierra Leone is in perpetual civil war, and Zimbabwe - once the thriving, stable Rhodesia - is looting the very people (the white men) who feed the country. Yet Westerners do not admit that the same kind of savagery could come to America when enough immigrants of the right type assert themselves. The fact is, Americans are sitting ducks for Third World exploitation of the Western conscience of compassion.

Those in the West who forced South Africa to surrender to the ANC and its leaders did not consider Africa to be the dangerous, corrupt, and savage place it is now in Zimbabwe and South Africa. Those Western politicians now have a similar problem looming on their own doorsteps: the demand for power and treasure from the non-Western peoples inside the realm.

It is already too late for South Africa, but not for America if enough people strengthen their spine and take on the race terrorists, the armies of the "politically correct" and, most dangerous of all, the craven politicians who believe "compassionate conservatism" will buy them a few more votes, a few more days of peace.

White South Africans, you should remember, have been in that part of Africa for the same amount of time whites have inhabited North America; yet ultimately South Africans voted for their own suicide. We are not so very different from you.

We lost our country through skillful propaganda, pressure from abroad (not least from the U.S.A.), unrelenting charges of "oppression" and "racism," and the shrewd assessment by African tyrants that the white man has many Achilles' heels, the most significant of which are his compassion, his belief in the "equality of man," and his "love your neighbor" philosophy - none of which are part of the Third World's history.

The mainline churches played a big role in the demise of Western influence throughout Africa, too; especially in South Africa. Today's tyrants were yesterday's mission-school proteges. Many dictators in Africa were men of the cloth. They knew their clerical collars would deflect criticism and obfuscate their real aims, which had nothing whatever to do with the "brotherhood of man."

Other tyrants, like the infamous Idi Amin, were trained and schooled by the whites themselves, at Oxford, Cambridge, and Harvard. After receiving the best from the West, they unleashed a resentful bloodlust against their benefactors.

From what I have seen and read thus far, I fear Americans will capitulate just as we did. Americans are, generally, a soft lot. They don't want to quarrel or obstruct the claims of those who believe they were wronged. They like peace and quiet, and they want to compromise and be nice.

A television program that aired in South Africa showed a town meeting somewhere in Southern California where people met to complain about falling standards in the schools. Whites who politely spoke at the meeting clearly resented the influx of Mexican immigrants into their community. When a handful of Chicanos at the back of the hall shouted and waved their hands at them, the whites simply shrunk back into their seats rather than tell the noisemakers to shut up. They didn't want to quarrel.

In America, the courts are still the final arbiters of society's laws. But what will happen when your future majority refuses to abide by court rulings - as in Zimbabwe. What will happen when the new majority says the judges are racists, and that they refuse to acknowledge "white man's justice"? What will happen when the courts are filled with their people, or their sympathizers? In California, Proposition 187 has already been overturned.

What will you do when the future non-white majority decides to change the names of streets and cities? What will you do when they no longer want to use money that carries the portraits of old, dead white "racists" and slave owners? Will you cave in, like you did on flying the Confederate flag? What about the national anthem? Your official language?

Don't laugh. When the "majority" took over in South Africa, the first targets were our national symbols.

In another generation, America may well face what Africa is now experiencing - invasions of private land by the "have-nots;" the decline in health care quality; roads and buildings in disrepair; the banishment of your history from the education of the young; the revolutionization of your justice system.

In South Africa today, only 9 percent of murderers end up in jail. Court dockets are regularly purchased and simply disappear. Magistrates can be bribed as can the prison authorities, making escapes commonplace. Vehicle and airplane licenses are regularly purchased, and forged school and university certificates are routine.

What would you think of the ritual slaughter of animals in your neighbor's backyard? How do you clean up the blood and entrails that litter your suburban streets? How do you feel about the practice of witchcraft, in which the parts of young girls and boys are needed for "medicinal" purposes? How do you react to the burning of witches?

Don't laugh. All that is quite common in South Africa today.

Don't imagine that government officials caught with their fingers in the till will be punished. Excuses - like the need to overcome generations of white racism - will be found to exonerate the guilty.

In fact, known criminals will be voted into office because of a racial solidarity among the majority that doesn't exist among the whites. When Ian Smith of the old Rhodesia tried to stand up to the world, white South African politicians were among the Westerners pressuring him to surrender.

When Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe murders his political opponents, ignores unfavorable court decisions, terrorizes the population and siphons off millions from the state treasury for himself and his friends, South Africa's new President Thabo Mbeki holds his hand and declares his support. That just happened a few weeks ago.

Your tax dollars will go to those who don't earn and don't pay. In South Africa, organizations that used to have access to state funds such as old age homes, the arts, and veterans' services, are simply abandoned.

What will happen is that Western structures in America will be either destroyed from without, or transformed from within, used to suit the goals of the new rulers. And they will reign either through terror, as in Zimbabwe today, or exert other corrupt pressures to obtain, or buy votes. Once power is in the hands of aliens, don't expect loyalty or devotion to principle from those whose jobs are at stake. One of the most surprising and tragic components of the disaster in South Africa is how many previously anti-ANC whites simply moved to the other side.

Once you lose social, cultural, and political dominance, there is no getting it back again.

Unfortunately, your habits and values work against you. You cannot fight terror and street mobs with letters to your Congressmen. You cannot fight accusations of racism with prayer meetings. You cannot appeal to the goodness of your fellow man when the fellow man despises you for your weaknesses and hacks off the arms and legs of his political opponents.

To survive, Americans must never lose the power they now enjoy to people from alien cultures. Above all, don't put yourselves to the test of fighting only when your backs are against the wall. You will probably fail.

Millions around the world want your good life. But make no mistake: They care not for the high-minded ideals of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, and your Constitution. What they want are your posessions, your power, and your status.

And they already know that their allies among you, the "human rights activists," the skillful lawyers and the left-wing politicians will fight for them, and not for you. They will exploit your compassion and your Christian charity, and your good will.

They have studied you, Mr. and Mrs. America, and they know your weaknesses well.
They know what to do. Do you?

I am a white conservative Evangelical American, and this article has one glaringly obvious flaw that the writer just does not seem to get.

The White South African Government he speaks of was a minority white government that actively practiced anti-christian discrimination against a majority black population.

It is abhorant that the writer try's to make it seem otherwise.

David Ben-Ariel said...

John, thank you for your comment. However, some would say your interpretation of aspects of apartheid as anti-Christian isn't biblical.

Strange that a white person would rather have a dominant atheist/Communist government actively practicing anti-Christian discrimination against the minority whites. Even Abraham Lincoln said since he was white, he would rather have the whites in power in the United States.

The real Abraham Lincoln

On a separate but sincere topic:

Curious why you have that idolatrous picture of "Jesus" as your icon? Such a false image must enter your mind on occasion when praying. God is greater than limited human imagination can capture and we're not to vainly attempt to make Him visible (except through Christian actions) before the Second Coming.

well there are a few things wrong in his assunmptions. !, is that votes count, the behind scene rulers give you choice of two and it aint no different who wins.you were 10 percent white, in africa, we aint. we are being ruined by the influx.and pope is not our friend. or gods infallible representer, South africa was set up then made to fall even before it came into existence.

I am ashamed that my name is John. The other John will be a useful idiot to the minorities that are already far along on the timeline that Gemma suggests. What our squishy liberals continually deny is that to look at what a mess the minorities have made (and it is a product of their collective zeitgeist) of their own countries. They have no desire to fight for their freedom or the structure that has built our prosperity. They only are after the material goods that, in their childish simplicity, they think fall from the sky and that they only have to come here and take them over from we undeserving Anglos. Thank heaven for the Asians!

The white minority apartheid government members were not Christians. They used religion to justify apartheid. Those who supported and still cling to the apartheid system obviously cannot even begin to understand what an evil system it was.

Dawid, sounds awful ARABIC, not Afrikaner, so why are you playing games? What Afrikaner isn't white? And why do you speak against apartheid? You apparently don't have a clue about it. Go educate yourself:

How Evil was Apartheid?

God knows whether or not the leaders of apartheid were truly Christian, but biblical religion does justify segregation.

This much we all know for sure, the evil ANC run by Black Marxists are not Christian and are not justified by any religion.

GENOCIDE BEING COMMITTED AGAINST SOUTH AFRICAN WHITES

I visited South AFrica in December 2009, for the first time in 17 years, after emigrating to Canada in 1993. After absorbing the immensity of the destruction of civilization, I sank to my knees and wept! I was born, 1962, and raised outside Pretoria. South Africa stood out as a jewel of civilization by a process called apartheid, which had become a smear word amongst the politically correct. The lies, believed by the world, about black people mistreated by whites, make me cringe, as it is so untrue and contrary to the care and concern bestowed by white employers shown to their black workers. An interesting fact: Canada modelled their "native reserves" plan on the apartheid in South Africa at the time, I believe in the early 1900's. There was NO way civilization could prevail against the AFrican unslaught. Why can people not see that? It is so clear. I believe God is in control and it is part of His plan that this is unclear to men. Last thing: The Hidden Genocide!! How whites are murdered especially those on farms (who feeds them all) it is literally a genocide that NOBODY wants to see or acknowledge! It is hidden in the media. I remember seeing the stats for 2007, which was over 800 farmers murdered that year. And in most savage ways. THERE WILL BE A DAY when truth will prevail, like in the old hymn.. when the clouds will roll back as a scroll and all truths will be revealed.
Deeply anguished by my AFrikaner people's distress... Ronel

A last addition to my comment... I always use this analogy for fellow Canadians, or Americans: There are about 1.2 million Native Canadians, and 28million non native Canadians. The Native population just can not pull themselves together, and is despite endless assistance, not able to rise to life standards close to that of fellow Canadians. They are persistently unemployed, unhealthy (life expectancy of about 50), uneducated, and socially and psychologically devastated, highest suicide rates of any group. All of this against free land, free housing, free health care, free post sec. education, protected by Canadian law to be hired above any other job applicants, etc, etc, ... Now if you look at this kind of scenario and apply it to South AFrica: there are 3 million white, European descent Afrikaners and English, to 30 million and rising numbers of black people. HOW CAN YOU EVER BUILD AND SUSTAIN ANY KIND OF CIVILIZATION BY ANY OTHER MEANS THAN SEGREGATION (APARTHEID). Can people not see that this is consistent world wide? Look at Haiti, any of the African countries, British Guyana, etc.. where black people are in rule, there is chaos! And America... wait and see what black rule will bring you... if you can not yet see the impending devastation at your doorpost.

I find this whole thing extremely racist.. How is it possible for you to say that black Africans cause destruction and only them? Let us not forget about the 'white' destruction in Israel and islamic countries! Every race would cause destruction when they have the means to do so! You cannot say that Africans are the only ones causing destruction. Do you not think that if colonialists had not taken over that Africans would not express ferocity to the whites? If these people were left alone in their own lands none of this would be happening. Im sorry but you need help! YOU ARE RACIST! And that is just a fact. It does not matter about ones colour or from where we originate. We were all created equal and whites were certainly not created superior to any other race!
I am of mixed race and I detest this article
