Book: Destroy the Spirit of UBUNTU, said the white Christian boss
Contents

The white Christian's lies
Lie No: 5

They preach to you that Jesus loves the bastards, but He scorns a Cananite (coloured) woman.
Matthew 15:21-28 reveals an extremely racist behaviour of the New Testament Jesus towards a Cananite woman who only wanted her daughter to be healed. He blatantly ignored her at first - (verse 23). Only after she acknowledged and identified herself as a dog, He condescended to speak to her. To further confirm whom the chosen one’s were He came for, Jesus says the following in Matthews 15:24:
24: “But he (Jesus) answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”
This statement would be considered “highly racist” in today’s society, especially because the House of Israel was only white people. In verse 26 He tells her to her face that it is not nice to take the bread from the children (white Israelites) and cast it to dogs (coloured people)! In the following verse this poor coloured woman had to be on her knees before Jesus, saying this:
27: “And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.”
What does He do?
No, no salvation from Jesus; only a “be it unto thee even as thou wilt”.
If this scene is read in conjunction with the statement of Jesus in Matthew 7:6 it would really smack of super-racism according to the rules applied in the new democratic South Africa.
“Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.”
Now knowing the true meaning of the word “holy” as “apart”, this verse suddenly becomes as clear as daylight.
“Do not give anything of this religion to the non-white dogs.”
Why? Because they, the non-white dogs, obtain the RIGHT to kill the White man who dares take that what is holy, like salvation, forgiveness and blessing to the dogs.
To summarise our Saviour’s words, non-whites like this coloured Cananite woman, can only be satisfied with the crumbs that fall from the White man’s table.
And crumbs is precisely what the Black man in Africa received from their white missionary bosses. With their superior Scriptural knowledge, these missionaries were very much aware of the REAL meaning of these verses. They were the initiated ones into this esoteric information.
This privileged information had to be kept from the uneducated African at all costs, because according to Matthew 7:6 he, the Black man obtained the God-given right to kill the white man who took the set-apart things anywhere else than to the twelve white tribes of Israel.
The most popular way these slithery theologians slip past these verses in any serious conversation, is to claim that everything changed with the “resurrection of Jesus”. There is no regard for the fact that if everything had changed, as they would like the Black man to believe, God Himself as well as Jesus become liars.

Boers and 'Afrikaners' - Boerestaat, Robert van Tonder PDF Print E-mail

 

From the book: Boerestaat, by Robert van Tonder
First English Edition [1977]

Contents of “Boerestaat”, by Robert van Tonder

Chapter 13

Boere and 'Afrikaners'

Millions of Boere today refer to themselves as Afrikaners. This is understandable because since the advent of the Union of South Africa the title 'Afrikaner' has been used consistently by the politicians.

13.1 The historical sequence of events
Originally the word 'Afrikaner', or 'Africaander' in its original spelling, meant simply 'African'. But whit the advent of the Afrikaner Bond, a Cape political organisation, it became politicised and referred to a specific group of people.

“The Afrikaner Bond was formed on the initiative of Rev. S. J. du Toit in June 1880 - the same year in which the Boere of Transvaal took up arms to rid themselves of British rule - and its aim was to look after the interests of the Dutch speaking colonials. Two years later in 1882 “Onze Jan” Hendrik Hofmeyer formed a Bond branch and the organisation moved away from the idea of an exclusive Afrikaner movement and accepted the Queen's Sovereignty and membership of the British Empire. The Bond had great power in the Cape political affairs, especially because they could, by giving or withdrawing support, keep a certain ministry in office or initiative its downfall. From 1890 to 1895 even Cecil John Rhodes was in alliance with the Bond. During the Anglo-Boer War they held their members in check and consequently no large-scale Boer rebellion took place. In December 1911 the Bond amalgamated with Het Volk, Orangia-Unie and Volksvereeniging to form the South African Party with Louis Botha.[28]”

The Afrikaners of the Cape also supported the British war effort logistically by allowing them the use of their railways to transport troops and equipment to the north. Eventually they volunteered and fought on the British side against the Boere in the colony.

The Afrikaners of the Cape Colony formed a far more vital element in the British decision to enter into a war against the Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek than most people realise. “The Raid (Jameson's) had made him (Chamberlain) keener than ever to have a go at the Transvaal. By alienating the Cape Afrikaners, however, it had also deprived him of the means.[29]” During Milner's visit to Chamberlain on November 22nd 1898 he was told the following: “If war had to come, Kruger must be the aggressor and the Afrikaners at the Cape - or at least a large part of them - on the side of the Empire.[30]”

13.2 The historical interpretation
After 1910, in an attempt to unite the whites in South Africa into one nation - an action which directly inspired the founding of the A.N.C. in 1912 - politicians coined the terminology of English-speaking and Dutch-speaking Afrikaners. By 1925 it was decided that the written version of the Taal had become sophisticated enough to replace Dutch as an official language. It was then officially dubbed 'Afrikaans'. The whites were subsequently referred to as English-speaking and 'Afrikaaans'-speaking Afrikaners. In general usage this was soon simplified to 'English' and 'Afrikaners”.

Now although these Afrikaners speak the same language as the Boere and although thousands of men from the northern and eastern Cape Colony fought along with the Boere forces in the great English War of 1899 - 1902 a large number of them were and are of British Imperialist orientation as regards their sentiments and traditions.
[Boeretaal and 'Afrikaans', are not the same thing. The Boer language (“Taal” or “Boeretaal”) has been classified as 'Eastern Border Afrikaans', the region where the Boers and the Boer language were formed. The Cape Rebels, the inhabitants of the British Cape Colony who fought on the side of the Boer Republics, were in the vast majority Boers of the Cape frontier and not Cape Dutch / Cape Afrikaners.
In this regard Volkstaat.org recommends you to read the following articles:

In 'The Boer War' Thomas Pakenham has the following to say about Jan Smuts and his appointment as State Attorney by Paul Kruger: “Yet how incongruous the partnership appeared. Smuts was an Afrikaner from the Cape; his first language, for the purpose of writing, was English, his favourite poets were Shelley, Shakespeare and Walt Whitman... The keystone of his political faith, like that of other Afrikaners at the Cape, had been the idea of South African unity under the British flag [31]. During the peace talks at Vereeniging in 1902, Smuts would again demonstrate how adept he was at expressing sentiments he was vey far from sharing.”

The naivete of politicians is astounding. During the last decade of the 19th century the governor of the Cape complained to the Colonial Secretary in London about the problems caused by the irreconcilability between the English, Afrikaners and Boers in the Cape Colony. The English were loyal to the Crown. The Afrikaners were also loyal to the Crown but they persisted in demanding that there 'primitive form of Dutch' be recognised as a language. The Boers were pointedly antagonistic towards the Crown. And this was after ninety years of British rule. On the other hand, until the advent of the mine magnates, the British immigrants to the Z.A.R. and the Free State were quite happy to be assimilated in the local population.

After the successful completion of Milner's plans to subjugate the Boere of Transvaal and Free State he had a draft constitution drawn up by the Milner-kindergarten for his dream of a Union of South Africa. This job was completed in 1905. In the nick of time as it turned out. Milner, as Governor of South Africa, agreed with the mine magnates that the best solution to the shortage of Africans willing to work at sufficiently low wages was the importation of indentured Chinese labour. The British Cabinet agreed on condition that “they not be flogged as though they were Africans” [32]. However Milner allowed the Chinese to be flogged and when the British Cabinet found out they passed a note of censure on him. Milner resigned and left the country. On his way out he passed the draft constitution over to the Governor at the Cape. This astute gentleman wrote an introduction to it and passed it on to the 'National Convention' of 1908 as his brain-child.

The Convention, which met to discuss the union of the four colonies and draw up a constitution, was attended by 36 delegates, sent by the governors who ruled the four colonies. Only 7 of the delegates represented the Boere faulk. The rest were British War Criminals, Cape 'Afrikaners', Jingoes, British subjects and a few Boere traitors. The only patriotic Boere that attended the Convention were pres. M T Steyn, genl Hertzog and genl. De Wet. They were completely unable to affect the course of events.

Here the new Union of South Africa was born.

Transvaal, our strongest Boere Republic, for instance, was represented by four British War Criminals, Messrs. Farrar, Fitzpatrick, H. C. Hull and H. Lindsay, along with the Boere traitors, Botha and Smuts and their two politically naïve bosom friends, Schalk Burger and Koos de la Rey. Genl. De la Rey's Boere heart got the better of him in 1914 when he rebelled against the British machinations and decided to wage a civil war to reinstate the Boere Republics. He was 'accidentally' shot by the police who had 'put out a road-block for the Foster gang'. His rebellion is to his credit.

In the same manner the Cape, Natal and Free State delegations were loaded with British War Criminals and their fellow-travellers.

In spite of the language problems that had already been experienced in the Cape and the fact that the Boere faulk was still in the majority in spite of the devastation of the War and British immigration, the Convention now insisted that English be the official language for the whole country. Dutch was only retained through the insistence of the Boere delegates of the Free State to the profound embarrassment of the traitors from the Transvaal. Hertzog's persistent campaigning for equal rights for Dutch, and later 'Afrikaans', earned him the label of 'racist'.

In the process they did every white person in the country, but especially the English, a tremendous disservice. Dutch was eventually, after only 13 years, replaced by the Taal which was duly dubbed 'Afrikaans' in the process. The retention of English has attached to the white population of Southern Africa the stigma of being colonials. It is also a well know fact that it is an awful bother for most adults to learn a new language. The result is that most English immigrants never assimilate into the population and they never become part of Africa but cling to their 'English Heritage' to the detriment of their cultural development in a new country. The same applies to immigrants from European countries who have a smattering of English learnt at school and find themselves in an environment where they can get along quite well in English.

After the founding of the Union our Boere faulk found itself in a devil of a spot. The political dispensation forced us to co-operate with the 'Afrikaans'-speakers of the Cape and Natal in order to gain political control. That is when the word 'Afrikaner' was coined as a name for the entire 'White nation'. It had the naïve purpose of uniting both English-speaking and Dutch-speaking whites who 'put South Africa first' into one nation. The word 'Afrikaner' was at this time used with the connotation 'a white citizen of the Union of S.A. be he English- or Dutch-speaking'. That then was the advent of political racism in this country. When Dutch was replaced by 'Afrikaans' on the statute books the terms English-speaking and 'Afrikaans'-speaking Afrikaners were naturally simplified to English and Afrikaners. It eventually resulted in the 'Afrikaners' drawing together in one party and gaining the majority white vote. In the process the word 'Afrikaner' which before 1902 had been the name of a member of an 'underground' political group in the Cape, the Afrikaner Bond always worked behind the scenes, now became the name of a 'faulk'. The upcoming generations grew up under the illusion that their nationality is that of 'Afrikaner'. The activities of the secret Afrikaner Broederbond did nothing to lend clarity to the situation. In their efforts towards 'purity' they caused a rift between Boere and European descent and Boere of British descent and a false sense of union between Boere and Cape Afrikaners.

Before Union our faulk was world renowned as the Boere faulk, the Cape Colonists were generally referred to as Cape Dutch and members of the Afrikaner Bond singled out as Afrikaners.

After 1910 in the Union of South Africa we could no longer vote for our own faulk representatives in our own state. Even if we won all the seats in Transvaal and Free State it would have been to no avail because the Cape and Natal also had to be won in an election in order to gain the political edge. Now in the word 'Afrikaner' with its new meaning of an 'Afrikaans-speaking white citizen of South Africa' became a useful political tool. It was built up as being the name of the Faulk in order to gain political power by drawing all 'Afrikaans'-speakers together at the ballot-box. Before this it had never been the name of a faulk. There were people who referred to themselves as Africaanders but it was to indicate that they were not natives of Europe or Batavia but natives of Africa. There was never any reference to the Afrikaner faulk of Transvaal and Free State. No, we were world renowned as Boere and our states were world renowned as the Boere Republics. The 'Kapenaars' were know as 'Colonials' or 'Cape Dutch' and the bunch in Natal as Colonials. The word 'Afrikaner' references all sorts of things belonging to an entire continent but it does not reference a specific faulk. The inhabitants of nearly all 53 countries listed at the start of this book are 'Afrikaners' or Africans. Linguistically that is the only correct meaning of the word 'Afrikaner'.

It is amusing thought that the Afrikaners of the Afrikaner Bond probably knew nothing about inspanning a team of Afrikaners in front of an ox-wagon.

Furthermore, for us Boere the word 'Afrikaner' has associations of treachery. After 1852 while our Boere faulk enjoyed total political and language autonomy the 'Kapenaars' were still courting the British for protection. However, in 1875 the natives of Paarl started a 'language movement' that very soon ground to a halt. They tried, because a lack of freedom, tradition and culture, to promote the name 'Afrikaner' but as early as 1882 the Afrikaner Bond, under instigation of 'Onze Jan' Hendrik Hofmeyer, swore allegiance to Queen Victoria and the British Empire. This step was aimed at patching things up with the British after our Boere faulk had humiliated them at Majuba in 1881. Clearly an attitude of: “You Boere can go to blazes, we prefer the company of British Royalty.”

The Afrikaner Bond backed the arch-enemy of our Faulk, Cecil Rhodes, and got him elected as Prime Minister of the Cape Colony. After the Jameson-Raid the Bond, although they now turned their backs on Rhodes, continued to support the British and kept a pro-British government in power in the Cape that saw to it that British troops were transported by rail through the Karoo to our borders so that we had to fight on two fronts, a task totally beyond the military capacity of our Boere army. During the Vereeniging discussions one of our generals pointed out that we had 'lost the war because the Cape Afrikaners had left us in the lurch by allowing the British troops to be transported by rail through the Karoo'. The Cape rebel leader, the brave Boere Commandant, Japie Neser, wrote in his diary: 'In a heavy battle with the enemy my commando killed twelve men, they were all Afrikaners'. And in his memories genl. Ben Viljoen writes during his internment on St. Helena: 'The bad treatment of us Boere in the camp is due to the advice given to the British by the Cape Afrikaners who have always been enemies of the Boere'.

During the British War the members of the Afrikaner Bond, that still kept the pro-British government in power in the Cape, formed the core of the British Town Guards and they were the forerunners in hunting down the Boere-rebels that fought on our side. The word 'Afrikaner' therefor leaves a foul taste in the mouth of a Boer.

13.3 A Faulk's identity
The deception of the Boere faulk since 1910 was mainly Cape Dutch inspired. Whit a stroke of the pen and the term 'Afrikaner' they nearly destroyed our Boere identity. What is generally forgotten is that the 'Afrikaans'-speaking Cape Dutch are not part of our Boere faulk!

A Faulk, any Faulk, has certain properties; a Faulk has its own unique history; its own traditions, festival days, political dispensation and political philosophy; own territory (state); own language; own race; own symbols, flags, faulksong [33] and folksongs. We Boere qualify one hundred per cent, but the 'Afrikaans'-speaking 'Kapenaars' that make up the N.P. government have none of these qualities. They had no part in our Boere history; they have never possessed their own territory (state); they never had their own flag and national anthem; own festival days and culture. That is why, to this day, they are so fond of British Royalty. This is clear from the adoration shown British Royalty by their journals: 'Die Huisgenoot', 'Sarie', 'Die Burger', 'Die Volksblad', 'Beeld' and Fair Lady.

Indeed, we are not of the same faulk at all. As a matter of fact, the Cape Dutch have never BEEN a faulk. They are still searching for a culture and a faulk tradition.

It will be of great assistance to them if the new independent Cape state Hexania comes about. The Cape Coloureds have long since deserved a state of their own and such of course of events will remove the thorns of animosity towards the Boere faulk. It is one of the evil results of the Union and Republic of South Africa that the Coloureds started perceiving the Boere, who have never had anything against them, as their enemies. The white 'Afrikaans'-speaking Cape Dutch oppress and politically control them. We Boere do not, but because we had to side with 'Whites' of the Cape to gain political power, we became implicated in their political impotence. Quite undeservedly so because we like they were dragged into the Union by the British against our wishes.

13.4 A referendum for the Boere of the Cape
But, I repeat, we do not want to be proscriptive. We Boere are, however, going to restart our interrupted faulk development and restart our Republics. We must do it in order to survive! The thinly populated areas in the Northern Cape will probably decide to join the Boere state. That however will be their decision and we Boere will see to it that a referendum for such a decision will be organised for them. As already mentioned, most of the black states were founded on Transvaal and Free State soil. To compensate for the tremendous loss of territory the northern part of Natal, including Kosi bay as well as the harbours of St Lucia bay and Richard's bay must be added to the Boere state. North Natal was a part of the Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek. After the English War it was stolen by the British and attached to Natal.

L'altro Sudafrica (“The other South Africa” - Rome, 13 April 2013) - Letter to CasaPound Italia PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 18 April 2013 07:07

 

Open Letter to CasaPound Italia [translation from Italian. The original text is here. Ed.]

April 3, 2013

Dear CasaPound Italia,
My name is ******* ******* (“******”) and I'm the editor of the “volkstaat” websites (in Italian, English and Afrikaans) that promote the nationalist cause of the Boer volk (Boer people-nation).

http://www.volkstaat.eu/

In the past I have already written to your press office (as well as those of other Italian political associations), to report news and/or initiatives about the Boer volk. In any case, I have never received any kind of response from you.

L'altro Sudafrica (“The other South Africa” - Rome, 13 April 2013)Today, I am writing you in relation to your initiative “The other South Africa - The drama of the Boer people”, that will take place in April 13th, 2013 at your headquarter in Rome, in Napoleone III street.

On the poster that promotes your initiative, first you wrote about “the drama of the Boer people” (“il dramma del popolo boero”) but, below that, you speak of “Afrikaner-Boer people” when you mention your own guest.
The difference is obvious and substantial.
The Boer people is not the “Afrikaner-Boer people”.
The identity of a people is accurate or it is not.

The terms “Afrikaner” and “Boer” are not synonymous.
The term “Afrikaner” can be used to identify all the Afrikaans-speaking people (with no racial distinctions). The Boers are the biological and spiritual descendants of the Trekboers (semi-nomadic migrants), of the Voortrekkers (pioneers) and the citizens of the free Boer Republics.
The Boers founded, in total, 15 Republics. The most well known Boer Republics were the Transvaal Republic (Zuid Afrikaanse Republiek, ZAR), the Orange Free State, the Natalia Republic and the New Republic [Nieuwe Republiek. Ed.]. The Boer Republics of the ZAR (which was joined by several smaller Boer Republics) and the Orange Free State were recognized by the international law.

The “Afrikaners” are not, and have never been, a nation; the Boers are.
Things don’t change even if you use the term “Afrikaner” only for white “Afrikaners”, giving to that word a specific racial connotation.
The Anglo-speaking white people aren’t a nation, while English people are. The French-speaking white people aren’t a nation, the French are. The Afrikaans-speaking white people (“white Afrikaners”) are not a nation, but the Boers are.

The Boers are Africans (albeit white) in all respects, because their nation and their culture were formed in Africa, on what was, at that time, the Cape frontier (an area consisted of the territories north of Paarl and east of Stellenbosch, right up to the Brak and Sundays Rivers).
During the late 1600s and all throughout the 1700s, while the majority of white people who spoke a proto-Afrikaans language remained at the Cape, happy to submit themselves to the Dutch colonial power (for this reason they were called “Cape Dutch”), a number of the poorest white people at the Cape migrated north and east, on the Cape frontier, driven by the desire for freedom. They were called “Trekboers”, because they were nomadic pastoralists, a lifestyle they adopted in order to survive on the harsh Cape frontier. From these men germinated the Boer nation, and the Cape frontier was the crucible that forged it.
The Boer people, therefore, didn’t develop in Europe, nor among the “Cape Dutch” (the majority of proto-Afrikaans speaking white people, who had remained at the Cape), but on the Cape frontiers.
The Great Trek (the great Voortrekkers migration that led to the foundation of the free Boer Republics) did not originate from Cape Town, but virtually entirely from the Cape frontier, where the Boer population developed at least 150 years before (with the Trekboers).
During the Second Anglo-Boer War, the “Cape Dutch” fought against the Boers under the banner of the British Empire, driven by international capitalism. The vast majority of Cape Rebels (the only Afrikaans-speaking white people of the British colony of the Cape, who stand with the Boer Republics) were Boers. In fact, they came from the Cape frontier and they also spoke a different language/dialect.

The term “Afrikaner” (that originally meant “African”) has been used referring to a specific group of people since 1880. In that year, in fact, while the Boers of the Zuid Afrikaanse Republiek (literally: “South African Republic”, Boer Republic in the region of the Transvaal) took up arms against the British rule, the Afrikaner Bond, in the British Cape Colony, began to use the term “Afrikaner”. It referred to the settlers (until then known as “Cape Dutch”) who spoke proto-Afrikaans, today classified as West Cape Afrikaans. Meanwhile the Boers developed a different language / dialect, today classified as Eastern Border Afrikaans - with reference to the Cape frontier, where the Boer nation germinated. The Afrikaner Bond accepted the British sovereignty, becoming a member of the British Empire, and enemy of the Boers.

After the conquest of the Boer Republics by Great Britain, on behalf of international capitalism, and the creation of macrostate/empire of the Union of South Africa in 1910, which forced together the former British colonies and the Boer Republics conquered, the term “Afrikaner” began to be used for all the Afrikaans-speaking Whites, without distinction between Cape Afrikaners (formerly known as “Cape Dutch”) and Boers.
On this classification, absolutely artificial and wrong, is based the so-called “White Afrikaner nationalism”.

In a subsequent step, the term “Afrikaner” began to be used to define any white citizen of the Union of South Africa (later Republic of South Africa).
On this classification, which is also artificial and wrong, is based the so-called “White South African nationalism”.

If, therefore, as a first step the classification as “Afrikaner” was simply alien and foreign to the Boers (because it referred to the Cape Dutch / Cape Afrikaners), it gradually included them in order to deny their national identity and right to independence.

The so-called “White South African nationalism” and “White Afrikaner nationalism” are false nationalisms, invented by international capitalism against the Boers (after the conquest of their Republics [1902]), to make the Boers a minority within numerically largest foreigner groups.

Although nowadays a number of biological descendants of the Boers uses the term “Afrikaner” to define themselves, justifying this choice by the fact that its meaning is “African”, this only proves the identity crisis of these people, victims for decades of the disinformation work of international capitalism. The term “Afrikaner” [as well as “South African”, Ed.] cannot be used to define the Boer nation, which is distinct and independent from any other, and cannot be confused with any other. [1]

The classification of the Boers as “Afrikaners” or simply as “South Africans” is an act of genocide, because it is aimed to erase their identity in order to deny their right to freedom as a nation.
The artificial and arbitrary classification as “South African” of all the different volk of Southern Africa (without distinction of any kind) is the basis of the last creature of international capitalism-communism: the “new” multiracial Empire of the Republic of South Africa (RSA post-April 1994).

I'm well aware that your movement, CasaPound, is a specifically Italian movement, so I can imagine you have a rather superficial knowledge about Southern Africa and about the Boers, a land and a people so far away. Although I'm inclined to assume your good faith, I notice that at your conference on the “drama of the Boer people” you don't have invited a Boer patriot or a supporter of the Boer cause, but one of the greatest contemporary exponents of the “White Afrikaner nationalism”, Hendrik van de Graaf.

I must say that I'm not surprised, conscious of the relationship between you and Solidarité - Identités, an association closely linked to movements which support the so-called “White Afrikaner nationalism”, busy in spreading its thesis in Europe, and in Italy too.
The initiative in question, however, is signed by Casapound. And so I'm addressing to you.

Hendrik (Henk) Van De Graaf is a prominent member of the Verkennersbeweging; he was a candidate of the VVK (Volksraad Verkiesing Kommissie, the Electoral Commission of white Afrikaners); and now is a “deputy” in the so-called “Boere-Afrikaner Volksraad” (“Boer-Afrikaner Parliament”).
The VVK, as well as the “parliament” that it has formed, is basically a creature of the Verkennersbeweging, a new form of Afrikaner Broederbond (the “Afrikaner Brotherhood”), a kind of white Afrikaner Freemasonry, which works to confuse the true nationalism (Boer) with a false one (white Afrikaner).
The “White Afrikaner nationalism” is a Masonic creature, and it is in its nature to be subservient to Judaism. This also applies to the VVK and to its White Afrikaners “parliament”. In this regard I advise you about two articles of Volkstaat.org: “The nature of the VVK” [2] (focused on various prominent personalities who work to spread the so-called “White Afrikaner nationalism”) and “The nature of the Afrikaner 'volksraad' of the VVK” [3]. In this latter article, it is reported an interesting letter of Paul Kruger, President of the VVK and collaborator of its “parliament”; the letter is addressed to a Russian-Jew, a supporter of the Jewish state and of the so-called “white Afrikaner nationalism”. It almost seems a declaration of loyalty by VVK and its “parliament” to Judaism and to the Jewish State in Palestine.

The VVK “parliament” is absolutely illegitimate, as well as that of the Republic of South Africa. The only parliament that can represent the Boers is a Boer parliament.
The VVK says it wants to free the “Boer-Afrikaners”, a volk that doesn't exist. Confusing the identity of a volk doesn’t help free it, but destroy it. This is a Boer Genocide too.

The VVK, in October 2012, has produced a document entitled “Die Boere-Afrikanervolk se eis om selfbeskikking” (“The Boer-Afrikaner nation's claim to self-determination”), which denies the specificity of the Boer volk than other white Afrikaans speakers [4][5], which is a fabrication of history. The Trekboer wars; the Voortrekkers' migration; the Blood River Vow; the Boer Republics; the Wars of Liberation, the people died in the British concentration camps; all of these are a heritage and an exclusive property of one volk only: the Boer one, the only white volk of Africa.
The VVK argues that the “old” Republic of South Africa (1961-1994) was a continuation of the Boer Republics [6], and this is another distortion of history. The “old” Republic of South Africa wasn’t born from the Boer Republics, but from the Union of South Africa (1910-1961), the British dominion forged by international capitalism that ended the Boer Republics (1902), and it created the “new” Republic of South Africa (post-April 1994).

The Boers rebelled against the Union of South Africa in 1914. The Rebellion was suppressed by British and Cape Afrikaners.
The Boers of the Ossewabrandwag (OB), the National Socialist movement which eventually had 500,000 members between 1940 to 1948, did not support the Union of South Africa but demanded the restoration of the Boer Republics. The OB was dismantled with the arrival of the White Afrikaner “nationalists” to the government of the Union.
The Boer Armed Campaign for Independence (1990 - 1994) was opposed to the Republic of South Africa in an attempt to restore the Boer Republics, or at least a part of them. The supporters of the “White Afrikaner nationalism” took part in the foundation of the “new” Empire.

The document “Die Boere-Afrikanervolk se eis om selfbeskikking” has been classified by Volkstaat.org as an act of Boer Genocide.

The document of the VVK, as well as the arguments of the so-called “White Afrikaner nationalism”, is in complete contrast with the documentation [7] presented in 1995 to the UN by Boere Republikeinse Verkiesingskommissie (BVK), the Boer Republican Electoral Commission (of which also the Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging [AWB] of Eugene Terre'Blanche was part). The AWB, in fact, even it was born as “white Afrikaner nationalist” movement, around 1985 [about 12 years after the foundation] it came to the Boer nationalism.
Fred Rundle (historical Boer nationalist and AWB spokesman for years) - as a representative of the BVK – after returning to southern Africa, told to the reporters: “We are indigenous people from the soil”. “We don’t know any other country. We don’t claim to represent all the white people in South Africa. We only represent the Boers. Afrikaners are distinctly different from Boers. The Boers were the people who tamed the country, who fought the British.” “We are not interested in any elections held by the ANC. We leave that to the Vryheidsfront and the Konserwatiewe Party.” [8]

The fact that at UNPO (Unrepresented Nations and People Organization) the “Afrikaners” (with reference to all Afrikaans-speaking whites) are represented even if they’re not a volk, is caused by the misinformation work of the so-called white Afrikaner “nationalists”. In particular, it’s due to the Vryheidsfront Plus (VF+ / Freedom Front Plus, FF+), the Afrikaner party that collaborates with the Empire of the “new” RSA, an Empire that VF+ has helped to create.
One should bear in mind that the leader of VF+ is Dr. Pieter Mulder. In 1994 Dr. Pieter Mulder was elected to the parliament of the Empire of the “new” RSA and since 2009 he’s the Deputy Agriculture Minister in the imperial government. The fact that a member of the South African imperial government could represent a supposed “volk” prisoner of the same Empire, is absurd, grotesque and very serious.
The fact that white Afrikaners have obtained representation at UNPO misusing the history; the flags; and the martyrs of the Boer volk, it isn't only a theft, but an act of Boer Genocide. Stealing a volk of its identity is an act of genocide.
On 23 April 2011, Dr. Lets Pretorius (father of the Pretorius brothers, Wilhelm, Johan and Kobus, Boer war prisoners held in South Africa), wrote a letter [9] to UNPO on behalf of the BVR (Boerevolk Verteenwoordigende Raad - Boerevolk Representative Council). He protested against the manipulation of the Boer identity, used to give an identity to an artificial “nation”. Therefore, he confirmed the specificity of the Boer volk, and remembered that the Boers (and the Boers only) have already had two Republics internationally recognized.

Southern Africa is currently plagued by a serious problem, the White Genocide, a racist extermination against white people (mainly Boers). And this is definitely a priority. Certainly, though, the White Genocide cannot be solved by promoting the destruction of the identity of the only white African volk, the Boer one.
This is the only purpose of this letter: to protect the identity of the Boer volk.

The supporters of the so-called “white Afrikaner nationalism” accuse the Boers to create "divisions”. But to defend their national identity is to defend its existence. Mixtures which promote the loss of their identity aren’t useful: they’re a key to destruction, not to survival.
Destroying the Boer identity, confusing it with other identities, won’t help the whites of southern Africa. Pretending otherwise would be, for example, meaning that for the sake of Europe it is necessary to cancel the different identities of the European peoples.

The history of Africa is very clear. The only indigenous white nation is the Boer one.
White people who want an own nation in southern Africa have only one way: assimilate themselves (if they can be assimilated) to the Boers, in the Boer nation. Being Boers.
Eugene Terre’Blanche, historical Boer leader, spent his life uniting Afrikaners (in reference to Afrikaans-speaking whites) and other whites of southern Africa, not dividing them. He wanted to unite them under the flags of the Boer nation, in order to make them Boers.

Today, April 3rd, the anniversary of the murder of Terre'Blanche, I think it is worth mentioning some of his words:
“The AWB, the resistance movement, didn’t rise from hate against other nations or people. The movement rose from love for our country and our nation, the Boer nation. The Boer people are those who left the Cape, which was a British colony, to find their own freedom and a new land.
What we want is our land back. The land of the Boers. The two republics and the northern part of Natal. We don’t want the whole South Africa. We know that South Africa cannot go on like this. The AWB, the resistance movement, is preparing itself to continue the conflict which my forefathers fought against your forefathers, against the British people. We know that our government is busy selling out the whites in South Africa, but we won’t fight, or start a battle on racist basis. We will fight it according to the international law. We have a rightful claim on certain parts of South Africa, that is the old Boer republics, and I want my land back.” [10]

All initiatives against the White Genocide in South Africa are welcome, but without confusing the identity of the Boer volk, otherwise they will turn into acts of Boer Genocide. Because genocide is not only the physical elimination of a people, but also all the actions aimed at its contamination and erasing or confusing its identity.

My purpose isn’t to start a controversy, but to help you understand the Boer people, the people you are talking about at the beginning of your poster.
I hope you reconsider, in a radical way, your initiative on April 13th.
I remain at your disposal for further clarification.

Sincerely,
*****
