South Africa: Marxist firebrand Malema once again warns of white genocide

While all eyes are on the Soccer World Cup and the Trump-Kim handshake, Julius Malema, has warned whites in South Africa once again that they may one day face genocide.

    In an interview with TRT World News published this week, Malema, leader of the Marxist Economic Freedom Fighters, said, “We have not called for the killing of white people. At least for now. I can’t guarantee the future.”

    When the journalist remarked that these statements were as good as a call to genocide, Malema responded, “Crybabies. Crybabies,” but later warned white South Africans that “the masses are on board” for “an un-led revolution and anarchy”.

    He added: “The white people hate the idea that we think we can be equal to them. That irritates them that a monkey can never be equal to a white man. They don’t want that. I’m hated for that.”

    He said farm attacks on whites were merely crimes. “The farm attacks [are] just an act of crime; it’s not a genocide on white people,” continuing that “Even in the farms there where black workers are killed, should we now be alarmist and say there is genocide of black farm workers? No, it’s a crime.”

    The numbers of whites killed on farms are far greater than those of blacks murdered. In fact white South African farmers boast the highest murder rate in the world.

    Malema, a darling of the South African media, is at the forefront of calls to confiscate land from white property owners without compensation. The economic consequences of such a policy played out in Zimbabwe, a neighbouring country where land expropriation caused an economic cataclysm spanning two decades.

    But Malema, the consumate Marxist, casually downplayed Zimbabwe’s economic catastrophe, saying “You cannot [measure] the Zimbawean revolution based on the capitalist definition.”

    He did not elaborate on the Marxist definition to measure “success”. Millions of starving Zimbaweans had fled to South Africa to escape the famine following Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe’s land grab.

    Long considered the breadbasket of southern Africa, Zimbabwe ‘s Marxist policies left more than a quarter of the population in danger of starving to death.

    “It’s truly astonishing that someone so dangerous and out of touch has been able to rise to power. And even more astonishing how quickly it’s happened. A decade ago few people had heard of Malema. Now he commands millions and grows more powerful each day,” says Simon Black who runs an investment blog called sovereignman.com.

    “In 1913, just a few years before the Russian Revolution, the Bolsheviks were a tiny group of radicals. Four years later they had taken over the entire country,” Black said.

    Asked to explain what land expropriation without compensation really means, Malema explained: “The state owns the land and then it gives it to you on a long lease. In that way, everyone else will have access to the land.”

    Several attempts by FWM to get response from the EFF, by telephone and text message, had no success.
