Dan Roodt, Afrikaans-language activist, writes on September 14 2012 – “Something extraordinary is happening in South Africa. Perhaps for the first time since the days of our much-loved and brutally assassinated leader Hendrik Verwoerd who managed to rally both Afrikaners and English-speakers behind him against the British Commonwealth, the UN and all comers, white South Africans are united in their opposition thw upmarket supermarket chain, Woolworths.

You could call it WAR – Whites Against Racism. Since 1994, South Africa has become the country in the world, apart from Zimbabwe, where anti-white racism has been pushed to its absurdist extremes. Woolworths, like many big corporations, have taken to advertising jobs with the proudly stated proviso: “Whites need not apply.” Of course it is not put as bluntly as that, and couched in the Orwellian weirdness of ANC newspeak like “employment equity”, abbreviated as EE, or the more sinister “transformation”, but the meaning is the same.

WOOLWORTHS HIRES TOO FEW WHITES CHARTS AND ARTICLE BY SOLIDARITY SEPT12 2012 ABOVE: Solidarity trade union kickstarted the Woolworths boycot by publishing detailed employment charts from the company.

PRAAG has been parrying with Woolworths about their arrogant anti-Afrikaans language policy since at least 2005. In South Africa as in some other places, “Afrikaans” is often a metaphor for “white”. Only whites care about the survival of Afrikaans culture, so being anti-Afrikaans or punishing Afrikaans is often a way of “getting the whites back”. When a white Jew was killed on 16 June 1976 in Soweto, it was done in the name of the rejection of Afrikaans. That is also why Afrikaans place and street names are being eradicated all over our country, even in the opposition stronghold of Cape Town and the Western Cape Province. The more nauseatingly liberal a minority of South African whites become, the more disdainful of our language they tend to be.
As a result PRAAG members have not been buying at Woolworths for some years now. So when I saw in the early hours of Tuesday morning that the Cape-based chain had recently placed race-exclusive ads for jobs, I immediately issued a renewed call for a boycott of Woolworths.

Since then, it has spread like wildfire. Whereas the ANC’s revolutionary takeover of our society has led to very conformist, left-wing, politically correct media – whether state-owned or private – the internet and social media have become the joyous outlet of white frustrations and intellectual ferment. Thanks to Facebook and Twitter, the news of the Woolworths boycott spread like wildfire.
Why now? Why Woolworths and not Pick ‘n Pay or Checkers or Game or any of the other supermarket chains who all practise anti-white racism in some or other way? That was also the question that Woolworths’s communications manager asked me a few years ago. I told her that most of the other chains still had an Afrikaans sign here and there, or announcements in Afrikaans, or one or two whites on their staff. However, Woolworths has gone “all the way” in killing Afrikaans off totally and adopting an extremist and arrogantly anti-white stance in hiring.

“Woolworths bites the hand that feeds them: 79% of its clientele is white” – Retail industry writer Justin Harrison breaks the story: “Woolworths SA blatantly posting ads on their career site that were exclusive of whites’ –

WOOLWORTHS BEE EMPLOYMENT STATEMENT JPG

 Above: Woolworths started rejecting white job applications in 2012. reported Retail industry writer Justin Harrison in a hard-hitting expose: above: writing: “I am calling all South Africans that oppose racism to boycot Woolworths’.                                           ______________________________________________

What makes Woolworths’s policy so incongruous is that they are actually biting the hand that feeds them. Apparently 79% of the upmarket chain’s clientele is white! But alienating one’s customers is not totally foreign to South Africa’s corporate giants who consider their relationship with the black government to be far more important than being in tune with the people who queue up in front of their cash registers.

  • Afrikaans media monopoly Naspers launched anti-white propaganda war against their own readers
  • The media group Naspers, which was once an Afrikaner company, our “National Press”, has recently become the purveyor of unethical sleaze journalism and a kind of Schadenfreude directed at their own readers or viewers. The more we get killed, raped and robbed, the more anti-white laws roll off the ANC government’s conveyor belt, the more jubilant Naspers’s moronic liberal pundits become.

 White solidarity:
Woolworths is the last straw, in a sense. It is part the company’s fault, part coincidence that it has triggered a sudden onset of white solidarity, a coalescence of what I called the other night on Radio 702 ‘the downtrodden, apathetic minority” who until now has been ostensibly content to endure whatever violence, injustice or insult this crazy system could hurl at it. The Woolworths boycott could have far-reaching political consequences.

WOOLWORTHS BOYCOT CAMPAIGN BECAUSE OF NO WHITES HIRING RULE

“If whites can boycot their favourite store: they could also boycot rates, taxes, elections, electricity payments… “ – Dan Roodt

  • After all, if whites could manage to boycott their favourite store, dispensing TV dinners and expensively branded fruit and veggies, as well as department store clothes, they could perhaps start boycotting elections, taxes, electricity payments, who knows what?

Middle-class whites keep South Africa’s machinery going:
Middle-class whites in this country, including the two million real taxpayers who provide the state budget which the black Louis XVIs and Marie-Antoinettes spend like their God-given due, probably work harder than any other white population in the world. They keep the machine going: they fix the computers and the networks, they fight tooth and nail in the law courts, they balance the accounts, they plant at the beginning of the new season, they design, plan and project manage new buildings and developments. Take them out of the equation and you have a Zimbabwe, an Angola (but without the oil), a Tanzania or some African country in need of “infrastructure and development”. Or maybe even food aid.

At my children’s’ Afrikaans government school, they have a chant called the “Blou masjien”, the blue machine. I am often amazed to see those young, healthy, robust white children go into a circle on the sports field, hugging each other and screaming their lungs out.

Woolworths have alienated and insulted ‘the white machine’

Woolworths and its politically correct management have just alienated and insulted a far bigger grouping: the white machine.

  • The company down in Cape Town is some provincial English side, visiting our country, and we are the Springbok rugby team of old – without quota players.

Mark my words, Woolworths; we are going to thrash you. We are going to close you down. Not only Checkers and Pick ‘n Pay, but the whole world will take notice. We are going to eat you for breakfast without any of your products and then we are going to spit you out and look for the next target.

We have had it up to here with Black Economic Empowerment, transformation and all the other euphemisms for the Faustian pact that you corporate moguls have made with this vile and venal regime. We are gatvol. If you at Woolworths do not understand that word, look it up in a dictionary.

Woolworths please remove all Afrikaans words from your packaging: we don’t want to have anything to do with you

As Woolworths hates everything Afrikaans or really South African, please also remove all Afrikaans words from your packaging. I am talking about koeksister, biltong, droëwors, Boerewors, nartjie, malvapoeding, bobotie, sosaties and every other word or product that might be mistaken for having anything to do with white Afrikaners.


Do you get the message; you bunch of politically correct Quislings? We do not want anything to do with you, ever again .” Dan Roodt:
