Turkish state broadcaster calls white farm murders in South Africa a ‘myth’

Turkish state broadcaster TRT World released a video last week claiming that the ongoing white genocide in South Africa is a "myth".

    Not only do the Turks believe it is a “myth” but also added that there was “no reliable data to suggest white farmers are being targeted” in South Africa.

    “The story of white genocide is actually a myth,” TRT World claimed. “South Africa has one of the highest murder rates in the world. Its government says that the farm attacks are just part of a greater violent crime problem and there’s no reliable data to suggest that white farmers are targeted more than anyone else.”

    “So, while white farmers have historically been the victims of attacks and while the murders have been brutal it’s not clear that they are racially motivated,” TRT World says.

    The video completely ignored the fact the South African government is currently advancing to amend the constitution in order to “legally” seize white farmers’ land without compensation.

    The most comprehensive data available from the Transvaal Agricultural Union is unequivocal. It shows “an overall murder rate for the white farming population of around 51,2 per 100 000 (1.6 times the national average) and of “white farmers” alone of around 108 per 100 000 (3.2 times the national average).”

    The Turkish government also denies the Armenian genocide, the Greek genocide and the Assyrian genocide – all incidentally carried out by the Ottoman Empire, thus Turks.

    Despite Turkish efforts to hide the South African problem, the anti-white leader of South Africa’s radical opposition EFF party in a clear racial tone last week vowed that his black supporters would increasingly seize white land.

    The Economic Freedom Fighters party leader Julius Malema told AFP that Ramaphosa’s new land grab policy was “fake”, presumably because it has not been violent enough and added that “the most practical way to get the land” is to occupy it. He has led land grabs in Polokwane, with more than 3 000 blacks settling on land owned by someone who lives in Canada.

    “He [the Canadian owner] came back and wanted to start negotiating,” Malema said, claiming that land must be owned by the state and not individuals.

    Dr Mandla Buthelezi, spokesperson for the National African Farmers’ Union (NAFU) – a black union – expressed his misgivings about the land grab.

    “My fear is that if people are given land, many would opt to sell it which will cripple the whole idea of expropriation of land,” he said. The South African Institute of Race Relations has said as much after the release of their in-depth survey on land reform: Black South Africans want money not land.

    And arguably, some black political leaders are viewing land grabs not only as ethnic cleansing, but as a way to become rich quickly.

    In neighbouring Zimbabwe, the confiscation of white commercial farms on the outskirts of cities and towns by ZanuPF rulers, resulted in the rulers selling off small plots. The purchase price of the plots was supposed to be used to provide “essential services”, but this was simply ignored.

    The people buying plots were instead required to become ZanuPF Party members and in addition were closely monitored for loyalty to the Party.

    “In elections, these new home owners voted at polling stations established in the area and these were monitored. If the polling station returned an opposition candidate some form of collective punishment, and even destruction of homes, was ordered,” explained Eddie Cross, a former Zimbabwean politician.

    The Zimbabwean “fast track land reform” programme in rural areas, was never designed to provide homes to the desperately poor, but to create conditions of near total political control for electoral purposes.

    Last week, a white couple at Lynn Avis Farm was attacked by three armed blacks, police spokesperson Brigadier Jay Naicker told News24.

    They were allegedly tied up before 66-year-old Peter Scott was shot dead.

    “The suspect was found at his homestead with a firearm and six rounds of ammunition, as well as property stolen from the victims’ home, including their cellphones,” Naicker told the outlet.

    Acting provincial police commissioner Lieutenant General Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi however, made a rather peculiar comment after the alleged murderer was captured. “It is totally unacceptable that people are killed for items of such a low value. The police will not rest when people are killed in their own homes by greedy criminals,” he said.

    But stealing “items of such low value” are not generally the work of “greedy criminals” but instead the work of ideologically motivated killers.
