Charlotte, NC — South Africa is a “War Zone,” according to Zero Hedge.
Zero Hedge recently reported that 25,000 troops were being deployed to quell the violence that is wreaking havoc on the streets of South Africa.
South Africa has fallen into chaos as rioting and looting is taking place in large numbers which Cyril Ramaphosa, South Africa’s president, has called “planned” and “coordinated.”
Certainly, there are internal political issues in South Africa that we don’t understand here in America, but what is clear is that critical race theory (CRT) has been alive and well there for many years as is the case here. Just last year, the number of murders of white farmers increased 26.8% in South Africa and the targeting of white farmers has been there for years as they are routinely murdered or have their land stolen while the nation’s leaders ignore it and claim it’s not occurring.
As Revolver News reported, South Africa is the first nation built on CRT and it is now imploding.
“The meltdown in South Africa isn’t a natural disaster or a random fluke. It’s a choice. South Africa was the first modern nation to be re-founded on the anti-white principles of critical race theory, and now it is reaping the whirlwind of that choice,” Revolver states. It adds: “This is about more than riots. This wave of violence will eventually peter out. But there is no reason to be optimistic when that happens. There will be no sense of having survived a calamity, and having a chance to rebuild. When this wave of burning and looting and killing are over, there is nothing to look forward to but the next wave.”
And, as Revolver notes, the same thing is happening in America: “South Africa did everything that is being done in America right now. As a hyper diverse multiethnic, multilingual society, South Africa has followed almost every prescription embraced by the globalist ruling class.”
From food shortages due to supply chain disruptions to outright dependency on the government from its people, South Africa provides a mirror image of America.
The question is, are we prepared?
If you ask Paul Gottfried, it appears not as conservatives have retreated to their comfortable space of decrying Marxism and ignoring the real threat that’s right in our faces.
“The swear words ‘Marxist’ and ‘revolutionary’ are now thrown around by conservatives, such as those at Heritage, the New York Post, and Fox News, with the same abandon with which the left speaks about ‘human rights’ or ‘marriage,’ particularly in relation to the concept of Critical Race Theory (CRT),” Gottfried wrote. “But as someone who has studied Marxism extensively, I believe it’s necessary to state that CRT is most definitely not Marxist, nor is it in any sense revolutionary. Instead, it is an instrument of repression brandished by those in power against those whom it is feared might resist them, and those labeling this instrument as Marxist misdiagnose the problem to their detriment.”
The real threat is far worse than Marxism, says Ilana Mercer. Mercer was born in South Africa and has followed what’s going on over there closely. In 2017, she wrote “that in Africa, you replace a despot, but not despotism; you oust a tyrant, but not tyranny.” That’s kind of another mirror of America as we replace Republicans for Democrats then Democrats for Republicans. Meanwhile, the national debt skyrockets and our personal liberties are eroded while the federal leviathan increases its power year after year no matter if the “red team” or the “blue team” is in charge.
For Mercer, the much greater issue is anti-whiteness, not Marxism. She noted this year that conservatives use charges of Marxism, communism and identity politics as a crutch to avoid facing the real problem.
“Put it this way: If your first response to “Kill the Farmer, Kill the Boer,” chanted by South Africa’s murderous Julius Malema, is, “Marxism, identity politics” — you are going to come short in the survival department,” Mercer wrote. She adds: “Theoretical escapism retards adaptive action.”
Mercer added: “Crippled as they are by self-serving fear, conservatives have accepted the Left’s terms of debate. Those dictate that, to warn of systemic hatred against browns and blacks is racially virtuous; but to fear the same for whites is incorrigibly racist. For fear of being dubbed racists, media conservatives simply look the other way, refusing to acknowledge the unadulterated, anti-white hue of American society…. Ultimately, if quibbling about communism and identity politics becomes an obstacle to facing the reality of systemic anti-whiteness — then these theoretical crutches are an affront to reality and, by default, a grave error.”
This has been a problem with conservatives for decades as they constantly cede ground to the left in the name of practicality, as Murray Rothbard wrote in 1973: “For well over a century, the Left has generally been conceded to have morality, justice, and ‘idealism’ on its side; the Conservative opposition to the Left has largely been confined to the ‘impracticality’ of its ideals. A common view, for example, is that socialism is splendid ‘in theory,’ but that it cannot ‘work’ in practical life. What the Conservatives failed to see is that while short-run gains can indeed be made by appealing to the impracticality of radical departures from the status quo, that by conceding the ethical and the ‘ideal’ to the Left they were doomed to long-run defeat. For if one side is granted ethics and the ‘ideal’ from the start, then that side will be able to effect gradual but sure changes in its own direction; and as these changes accumulate, the stigma of ‘impracticality’ becomes less and less directly relevant. The Conservative opposition, having staked its all on the seemingly firm ground of the ‘practical’ (that is, the status quo) is doomed to lose as the status quo moves further in the left direction. The fact that the unreconstructed Stalinists are universally considered to be the ‘Conservatives’ in the Soviet Union is a happy logical joke upon conservatism; for in Russia the unrepentant statists are indeed the repositories of at least a superficial ‘practicality’ and of a clinging to the existing status quo.”
