South Africa - anti-foreigner riots

Terror on the streets of South Africa

Anti-immigrant protests have been ongoing in South Africa for two weeks and at least six people have been killed

    Is he one of the rioters, or one of the counter-rioters.
    Maybe the BBC will send a reporter down to make their grievances look monstrous and incomprehensible.
    So, why does no one ask the question as to why the South African blacks hate this other group of blacks so much that they are rioting, burning, and killing over it.

      Today it’s South African blacks chopping up immigrant blacks with machetes, 30 years ago it was the ANC necklacing black rivals. Nothing new under the sun. Back then, the Truth That Must Not Be Spoken was that the ANC didn’t want black rule, it wanted ANC rule. Usually when no one asks uncomfortable questions, it’s because that would spoil the narrative. Meanwhile, South Africa is embracing its destiny.

        It’s definitely embracing its diversity.

          No, it’s becoming less diverse.

    • The left never seem to notice the paradise South Africa has become.

        No, they just claim that it’s still better than that mean old apartheid.
        I noticed that no one bother to ask in earnest as to WHY apartheid ever came about in the first place. It was a pretty whacky system that had lots of “chutes and ladders” to go through for everyone.

        Complicated or convoluted systems like that just don’t appear without a bunch of people thinking it’s a much better alternative when compared to doing nothing, and with a lot of fine tuning along the way over the years.
        Almost none of the blacks in South Africa are descended from tribes native to South Africa. Now why would a bunch of blacks want to move to such a place?

          Because it was a superior civilization founded by white people?

    So now the immigrants can head for Europe instead of SA. The EU and various tranzis will undoubtedly be offering free charter flights and cruises north before long.

  • Ron MacDonald

    My wife’s nephew in Denmark was in South Africa on business last Fall, said it was the worst place he has ever visited.

  • Kathy Prendergast

    But, but…only WHITE people can be racist and anti-immigrant!

    In the not too distant future, most of the population of South Africa will look back on the days of Apartheid with some longing. That includes the black population as well.

    • lolwut?

      If they don’t starve and chop themselves to death first.

  • Maggat

    Looking at that picture of that bro I am caused to wonder if there are in fact any functioning brain cells in that empty looking head.

    This is for the most part a response to the vast unemployment and stagnation rife in the ZA economy. You’ll note the subtle differences in language. Are they ‘foreign nationals’? Immigrants? Illegal immigrants? Refugees? Typically people flock to ZA from black Africa for economic reasons. They set up small businesses, stores, cab stands etc and eek out a living in the ghettos there. Just like anywhere else in the world. You’ll also note the ‘counter protests’ are your usual gaggle of dull middle class white and coloured liberals with signs and whatnot trying to paint it all as ‘racism’ which of course it’s not. Tribal? Ethnic? Probably. But in the end this is more about the abysmal failure the ANC has made out of 20 years of freedom, economically. Most blacks are not materially better off now than they were under white rule. But they cling to the ANC because they always have and there aren’t any options. It’s a corrupt broken system run by thugs and criminals and demagogues. And if this was sparked by Zulu leadership it’s only because some toad in the ANC hierarchy prompted the Zulus to do it and stir up trouble.

    The usual complaints of the malcontents tend to centre on illegal Zimbabweans in SA who have fled Bobby Mugabe’s marxist kleptocracy/paradise. They aren’t the most diffident people in the world when it comes to reaching for the last doughnut.
    The DM is peddling PC horseshit as always when it comes to black violence in SA.
    The Zulus and ANC both have fanatics/factions eager to steal and loot today with zero thought given to the repercussions that would ensue tomorrow.
