South Africa's Brand New President Wants To Confiscate Land From White Farmers

Authored by Simon Black via,

If you’ve been following much international news, you’ve probably heard that, after literally years of scandal, abuse, and incompetence, South Africa’s president Jacob Zuma was finally forced to resign last week.

This is a big deal for South Africa.

The country has been suffering for nearly a decade under Zuma’s corruption.

And people are certainly hoping that the new President, Cyril Ramaphosa, will represent a positive, new chapter for South Africa.

Yesterday Ramaphosa addressed the nation’s parliament in Cape Town and made clear that his priority is to heal the divisions and injustice of the past, going all the way back to the original European colonists in the 1600s taking land from the indigenous tribes.

Ramaphosa called this “original sin”, and stated that he wants to see “the return of the land to the people from whom it was taken… to heal the divisions of the past.”

How does he plan on doing that?

Confiscation. Specifically– confiscation without compensation.

The expropriation of land without compensation is envisaged as one of the measures that we will use to accelerate redistribution of land to black South Africans.

Ramaphosa minced no words: he’s talking about taking land from white farmers and giving it to black South Africans.

Astonishingly, he followed up that statement by saying, “We will handle it in a way that is not going to damage our economy. . .”

Wow, what a relief. For a minute it sounded like South Africa wants to do what Zimbabwe did several years ago.

Oh wait a minute.

That’s exactly what Zimbabwe did.

Seeking to correct similar colonial and Apartheid-era injustices in his country, Zimbabwe’s president Robert Mugabe initiated a land redistribution program in 1999-2000.

Thousands of white-owned farms were confiscated by the government, and the farmers were forced out.

Bear in mind that Zimbabwe used to be known as the breadbasket of southern Africa. Zimbabwe’s world-class farmers were major food exporters to the rest of the region.

But within a few years of Mugabe’s land distribution, food production plummeted.

Without its professional, experienced farmers, the nation went from being an agricultural export powerhouse to having to rely on handouts from the United Nations’ World Food Programme.

Hyperinflation and a multi-decade depression followed.

If there’s an economic model in the world that you DON’T want to follow, it’s Zimbabwe.

And you’d think that the politicians in neighboring South Africa would know that.

They had a front-row seat to the effects of Mugabe’s land redistribution, not to mention they had to absorb millions of starving Zimbabwean refugees who came across their borders.

Yet this is precisely the policy that they want to adopt.

However you might feel about social justice, it seems pretty clear that copying Zimbabwe is a pretty stupid idea… and will only end up hurting the people they claim to be helping.

Yet the president claims that they want to initiate a land redistribution program that won’t impact the economy or South Africa’s food security.

Yeah sure. And I want to be the starting quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys next season.

But sadly you won’t see Simon Black throwing any touchdown passes anytime soon.

That’s because we have to live in a world with certain realities and limitations.

One of those realities is that land distribution, even if you believe the intentions to be noble, never works.

And of course, the most important reality is that anyone who willfully chooses to copy Zimbabwe’s economic model deserves to suffer the consequences of their stupidity.

Depopulation using food as a weapon.

Ice Age Farmer, on YouTube, shows how worldwide crops are down and this is one more way to reduce the population..

Except they'll never accept responsibility for their stupidity and avarice.  Even in the midst of starvation and deprivation they'll find an excuse to blame "whitey" for their own craven criminality.   It's how these psychopaths roll.  Youd think that intelligent blacks would get off their mental plantations but I guess it's far easier to steal than it is to build.

I thought the negroes running the show in SA were NOT the indigenous ones, as that area was originally sparsely populated.  The whites imported these now-aggrieved negroes later for the cheap labor.

The original sin actually was bringing these negroes into their country in the first place, a sin the whites have paid for, dearly.

It be worth it, those South Africans can farm. They think it's easy, just drop a seed and add some water and you have food. They will learn, they will starve. IMO your insane to stay in South Africa if you're white, the writing is on the wall, your surrounded by a horde of of people with about a 72 IQ that have been told You're the reason they are poor. Good luck with that.

Don't worry. We are armed and ready. Have been for 400 years and we are still here. Even the Brits needed a 400.000 strong regular army AND concentration camps Auschwitz style to subdue 30.000 Boers. IQ72 is not hard to counter - and in addition, they are cowards. The rest of the WEST should worry - you are being outbred by fundamentalistic religious morons and you ADORE them. Multiculti, yeah, my ass.

The only one with a 72 IQ is the author of this article and yourself & most of  the  rest of this idiots that do not understand the situation here 

1) Over 22 % of the land is owned by 10 kings who have not or will not give title to their people King Goodwill is the the biggest landowner the head of the Zulus ,he has made it clear he will  not cooperate ,so this where it starts.

2)The SA government owns a sizeable amount as well much given on lease to black farmers this will be the next step, try to remember all you know it alls these are all black & colored 

3)  Than the Afrikaners who were given land taken from the blacks during apartheid this will require thorough title searches etc.anyone who bought property after 1994 unlikely to have a problem , I have farm property here & I am not worried or several other Americans & many many south africans , it would require major changes to the constitution ,here which would not stand a vote 

4)Cyril  is a successful lawyer, businessman , union negotiater was a law professor at Stanford in the 90s so very likely has more intelligence than 99% of the posters  or the dunce that wrote this article.

1/2 truths scare tactics incomplete info no clear picture of the situation and quite honestly  no one else has info at hand how this will be handeled but it will be handeled within the law at this time & likely in the future.

And for all your armchair racists & the jerk that wrote this article it starts with taking LAND FROM THE KINGS WHO ARE BLACK !!!!!!

Land is sold here every day I have 35ha for sale now and have no problem finding buyers for more than what I paid for it a year  ago  , you  do not have  a clue another braindead zher  too naive or lazy to check this info out which is far from accurate  

The first expropriation will be from the 10kings to their people which is about 22% of the land King Goodwill in the past  he said he  would give title now it may require taking it !!these kings are all black that is the 1st step .

It would take major change in the constitution before they take land from white farmers and even than it would take many years to research the titles to find what land was taken during apartheid all of this beyond speculation  the kings is where it starts.

So bugger off dimwit you do not have a clue as most of your racist cronies read & learn before you open your big  mouth

Well, you mention the constitution and maybe taking land from the black kings, but the guy did say: " “The expropriation of land without compensation is envisaged as one of the measures that we will use to accelerate redistribution of land to black South Africans.” - you see the key term: confiscation, and to black (not white) folks.

I don't see the constitution mentioned.

The constitution here guarantees property rights for EVERYONE it would have to be a change and that requires a vote . the Afrikaners took land  for decades  from black landowner Indians  etc. etc. this has been corrected to an extent for decades  under   land reform programs but there are still huge tracts of land given to Afrikaner cronies that has not been resolved. And the kings are part of this problem and yes he is talking about redistribution from BLACK kings to black citizens as well read it again it does not say from white farmers!!!! Land reform has been going on for decades but done very poorly the different wording is without compensation this is against the constitution and will not be done unless there is a change in the constitution!! that is a fact!!

If they use a low grade nuke on Lo-berg and Capetown, the result will be a stream of what looks like diarrhea rolling into the sea. That's the liquification of the savage beasts that ruin South Africa. White people are forced to stay under the rule of savages, they can leave but cannot take their wealth with them. There are a couple of ways to sneak one's money out of the country, but I will not write them for fear that some wildebeest in their government might read this an close the few loopholes remaining to stop all currency flight. If this was a world that had any justice, White -ruled societies would recognize the existential threat that these Black bastards represent and would move to neutralize and annihilate them now. Should have been done against Mugabe, this one is even worse for a number of more important mineral reasons. 

The White racists who used to run this country were correct, they were the better choice as opposed to the Black racists who are destroying it now. The damn thing about it is that it would not be very hard to overthrow this government. Dip thousands of bunches of bananas and watermelons in liquid cyanide solution, let it dry, and drop it over the cities. It will take about three hours. In the ensuing panic, send in the military units and push the animals either into the ocean or into the bush where the wild animals will finish the job.

A hippo will kill a Black person but will not eat their meat. Has something to do with the sensitivity of the hippo's nose, they will not eat what smells bad to them. Very smart, incredibly powerful, and unbelievably fast, the hippo is perhaps the world's most fascinating animal. Just stay away, they are very territorial, always be moving in a direction away from this animal. And as smart as the hippo is, they know what they need to k\now about Blacks. So funny.

When a hippo passes the veterinarians always  check between the hippo's toes, because inevitably they will find the remains of a pygmie or two embedded therein, the result of a raging hippo that took offense to a pygmie entering its home. Hippos are smart, they don't let Sambos into their homes. 

Speaking of Sambos, I had to laugh at the photo that is part of the article, ostensibly taken in the South African Parliament. The woman in green looks like she is the South African version of Aunt Jemima, replete with her hair towel and baby bib slung over her left shoulder ! I wonder if she knows how to make pancakes ?

The woman in the front row, first seat on the left, with the red tube around her neck, could pass as Larry Holmes' sister. Even if she is not related to the former champ and chief chump (he was stupid, only finished the fifth grade if I remember correctly...but had a wicked stiff left jab), she looks like she went a bunch of rounds in the ring as his sparring partner.
