Did South Africa's President sing a kill the Boer song?

This has not been in the news at all in Australia. It appears that the South African President, Jacob Zuma, sang a song earlier this year which contains the phrase "kill the Boer" - the term "Boer" referring either to farmers or to white men.

The song has already been ruled to be hate speech by the South African courts. Another politician in South Africa, Julius Malema, was convicted of hate speech by a court in September of last year for singing the song.

A group representing the Boer population has lodged a formal complaint with the South African Human Rights Commission against the President for singing the song.

It's a particularly serious issue in South Africa, as 3000 white farmers have been murdered in that country since the mid-90s. A written declaration was presented to the EU this month protesting the murders (see below):


There are websites (here, here and here) which track these murders (warning, the content can be graphic).

And here is video of Jacob Zuma, the President of South Africa, singing the song with gusto at the ANC centenary celebrations in Bloemfontein in January:



I can't vouch for the translation, but the lyrics of the song have been rendered as follows:
Ayasab' amagwala (the cowards are scared) dubula dubula (shoot shoot) ayeah dubula dubula (shoot shoot ) ayasab 'a magwala (the cowards are scared) dubula dubula (shoot shoot) awu yoh dubula dubula (shoot shoot) aw dubul'ibhunu (shoot the Boer) dubula dubula (shoot shoot) aw dubul'ibhunu (shoot the Boer) dubula dubula (shoot shoot) aw dubul'ibhunu (shoot the Boer) dubula dubula (shoot shoot) aw dubul'ibhunu (shoot the Boer) dubula dubula (shoot shoot)

It has been suggested that Zuma sang a slightly different version of the song with the lyrics "Kill the pink skin" rather than "Kill the Boer" but the overall effect would seem to be much the same.

Why isn't there more international attention focused on the fate of the Boers? One reason is that the Western middle-class is ideologically committed to the idea that whites are privileged oppressors and therefore are immune from persecution. They cannot bring themselves to recognise the vulnerable position of whites in South Africa, particularly the white farmers living in isolation on farms. Nor, perhaps, are they aware of the real poverty of some of the Boers in South Africa, who are given the lowest priority when it comes to employment.

Reuters ran an article on Afrikaner poverty in South Africa back in 2010. About 10% of the white population is thought to live in poverty, with about 100,000 struggling to survive. There are now white squatter camps close to the South African capital Pretoria.

  1. Its kind of sad when white guys have to go cap in hand to the Europansies.

  2. "Why isn't there more international attention focused on the fate of the Boers? One reason is that the Western middle-class is ideologically committed to the idea that whites are privileged oppressors and therefore are immune from persecution."

    That's right.

    Another reason is that lines of though become politically incorrect (that is improper to speak aloud) when they raise awkward questions for the dominant anti-White narrative.

    As Whites in Zimbabwe decline ever further in numbers in a brutal social environment, and as South Africa advances piecemeal toward full-on anti-White genocide, is it wise and safe for Whites in other countries to diminish their majorities, give up power, and lose control of their fates, as the White southern Africans did?

    If it isn't right for us to put ourselves in the position of the White South Africans, without control of our collective fate, subjected to intimidation and barbarous murders and increasingly threatened with genocide, then our policies of mass non-White immigration and anti-White multiculturalism are wrong. So that line of thought is politically incorrect from the outset.

    Another question that troubles me is: why are Whites so inhuman, so cold to the distress and ruin of their own kind in Africa? Sure, we have bad ideas and a corrupted culture. (It must be a corrupted culture to engender such hard-hearteness.) But why has bad ideology so readily over-ridden the natural tendency to sympathy with those who are related to and similar to oneself?

    It doesn't speak well of us. And it doesn't speak well at all of the ideas that are dominant in our public discourse that objecting to expressions of genocidal hatred against people like us is socially awkward.

    Another awkward question is: if this is a slowly developing genocide against the Whites of southern Africa, what should we do about it?

    I think the right answer is that we should give those Whites refuge in our other White countries. All of those threatened Whites, including those without the skills to be accepted as normal immigrants.

    I think the reaction of world Jewry to the exodus of many Jews from the late Soviet Union should be our model. That is how people with undiminished natural ties of affection respond to a crisis for people of their own kind in a far country.

    Which you also don't hear about in the mainstream media here.

    Haha, that's just the response we would have here in the States. It seems that red-blooded Australians and Americans have that much in common, huh?

    I myself did have a somewhat different response this time, though, than usual. These whites acted kind of like sons, going humbly to their father, Europe, for help and protection. What I found sad was that the "father" has long since abandoned his legitimate children.

    How often has France intervened militarily on behalf of this or that black government in one of its former African colonies. Yet when the sons and daughters of Europe abroad look for good from their European fatherlands, what do they get back in return? Snake-oil politicians and a stone-cold European public.

    It makes me think of Matthew 24:12.

    And, as usual, Mark diagnoses precisely the sickness underlying it all.

    Mr. Daybreaker we don't control our own countries. If we did, all those people be evacuated already.

  9. to answer the question as to why we are indifferent to our own decline in South Africa, it is because when we make an effort to preserve our way of life, the ENTIRE planet (including OZ) went to war against us with sanctions, isolations, embargoes as well as sponsored wars which we fought in and out the country in Africa. Its disgusting how people sit and sneer at us for not fighting back when doing so brings the WRATH of the world community on us.

    Idiots

  10. That's why SA is still 3rd world. In the so-called "civilized" countries, white people don't take actions afraid to be labelled as "racists", while European governments seem to be more focused on appeasing Muslims and African immigrants from former colonies instead of providing any help to real Europeans, who altough born overseas are part of the European gene pool.

  11. What South Africa, and Africa in general, needs is MORE whites, not less. We should not be aiding their escape, but helping them so stay with the right political pressure. What happens when you remove all the whites from an African country? Tanzania, Congo, Sudan, Rwanda etc. etc. etc.

    The anti-apartheid campaign was not about equality, democracy and justice; it was a geopolitical campaign for regime change, in order to allow 'communist' and 'globalist' forces to gain control of the gold, diamonds and other wealth of the country.

    Unfortunately the western white liberal masses, with no knowledge of Africa or the reality of its context, bought the ruse, and have become permanently desensitized to the plight of white Africans. They have been categorically demonised as undesirables.

    In the same breath, the same people that advocate the downfall of white Africans, advocate multicultural anti-nationalism in their own countries and they do not see the inconsistency.

    I would like to see now, more media movement to publicise the disgrace that the ANC are presiding over, the danger of genocide which is crystallising, and a re-establishment of identity ties between whites of elsewhere with the white African, who has, let's face it brought much of Africa out of the stone age.

  12. This heading for another Bosnia, Cambodia and Armenian situation where after the fact the West will declare there was a genocide. When they finally drag the perpetrators into court it will be too little too late. My advice to SA whites is to get out if you can, otherwise you will end up in a fight for your life. The West will then condemn those whites that protect themselves and will state that they were militia's etc etc. The Afrikaners (and yes I am one with a mixture of German, Scottish and French Hugenot blood) who have been there for between 14 and 6 generations and protecting themselves from day one against the Dutch, British and local tribes when these people have every right to be Africans in their own right. It is a shameful state of affairs. Apartheid was a stupid mistake and this is why 70% of whites voted for a deispensation where every person in SA can have a say about their future. It appears that the White Tribe of Africa should never have let go of the reins of power....many predicted they would be persecuted and this is exactly what has happened. Being liberal is fine....unless you're outnumbered. But the world will do nothing. I ahve told my close friends if they ever become refugees my house is open for them. I was fortunate enough to marry an Englishwoman who grew up in Rhodesia (which became the benighted state of Zaimbabwe). We got our kids British passports when theyw ere born and we followed them out of South AFrica in 2006....when Zuma the radical marxist was elected to power by the masses which the ANC through a steadily declining education standard, are keeping ignorant. Thus the patent lie that whites are to blame for their rising unemployment, crumbling services and slowing economy are believed. Anarchy will reign and whites should arm themselves.....no one is coming to the rescue.

  13. The former SA president, Nelson Mandela, is really in some rare difficulties that are forcing him to quit. But instead of making fun of him, we should encourage him.
