  1. TPTB have orchestrated a Race War to destroy SA just like in Rhodesia. I’m sure there are Blacks who do not support this self destruction.

  2. Australia stepping up to save the lives of threatened South African whites

    Dutton, who also holds the ministerial post for immigration and border protection, told the Daily Telegraph that white South African farmers “deserve special attention” because of the “horrific circumstances” of land seizures and violence in the country.
