    She was accused by authorities of “spreading racial hatred”. Hopkins posted a video to social media claiming that authorities had detained her.

    She had said earlier that she was in South Africa documenting the “the violent, ethnic cleansing of white farmers by armed, black gangs”.

    In a short video filmed at the airport, Katie tweeted: “At passport control, I’ve been through security and I’ve been detained, my passport has been marked for spreading racial hatred here in South Africa.

    “I’m not sure what’s going to happen, they’ve taken my passport away from me but it doesn’t look like a this present time I’ll be allowed to board my flight and leave the country.”

    She also noted: “Amazing security co-ordination from a country where police do not respond to white farm murders because they are ‘on lunch break’.”

    Hopkins visited South Africa to expose the “military style attacks” being made on the white South African farmers, she said.

    Her visit has been marked with drama: On Sunday Hopkins collapsed on the street in Cape Town after apparently being given medication for a dislocated shoulder.

    She tweeted: “Grateful thanks to the South African emergency services for putting me back together.

    “Leaving it all on the road, to tell the truths not being told. Ketamine 1 / Hopkins 0.”

    In an article on Rebel Media, Hopkins said the the South African government was trying to censor her.

    “On my way back home, South Africa’s border guards ordered that I be detained at the airport. They obviously missed me coming into the country. But they ‘caught’ me trying to leave.

    “They detained me under section 29(1)(d) of South Africa’s Immigration Act — which bans: ‘A member of or adherent to an association or organisation advocating the practice of racial hatred or social violence.’

    “But I am a member of no such organization and I deplore both racism and violence. In fact, that’s what I was doing in South Africa: exposing the racial hatred and social violence being directed against white farmers.

    “In the end, the border police let me go — but it was a reminder that South Africa is losing its civil liberties, especially the ability to criticize the governing ANC party or its extremist cousin, the EFF.”

    She accused the South African government of “not lifting a finger” to stop the violence against whites and said she managed to smuggle her documentary film footage out of the country.

      Sources: Corrupt Members of South African Police Force Facilitate Farm Attacks

      40 days into 2018, 41 farm attacks, 5 murders on white farms. South African police actively involved:

      “We have arrested serving members of the police during house robberies. Police weapons have been used in the attacks. Not just personal weapons issued to every officer, but rifles that have to be signed out from the station. We know police ammunition has been used in farm attacks.”

      EFF rally protest song: “Kill the Boer, kill the white man.” EFF members 30%—35% of police force.

        This is what happens , every country that has a black or brown leader ends up in chaos and starvation. Even in the cities here in the US, the blacks riot murder and rape. They need to be separated. They are jealous of the whites, we are smarter and better looking. They are primitive savages imitating real people. They are the epitome of corruption. Separation is the answer, it is not discrimination it is a solution to the violence and suffering.

      Wonder if she has that footage of those military jammers, uniforms and weapons being used to attack farmers. I find it strange that someone associated with Europe gives a damn to be honest but now they have opened the door and let Africa flood their front yard. I’m pretty sure they are now starting to see in their own back yards with what whites have to deal with every day in South Africa. Guess she learnt her lesson. Anything and everything you say that does not agree with an Africa regardless whether it is racist or not WILL be deemed racist. Welcome to Africa and it’s new oppressors. At least they didn’t call he a lair.
