Irish pop singer calls for Genocide of Boers

 While a South African law-court still is in the middle of deciding whether to unban the song, an Irish pop singer visiting the country with his band U2 has broken the ‘sub-judice’ rule by openly giving his support to the ANC’s banned genocidal-hatespeech song Shoot the Boer.

Mr Bono, an Irish pop singer whose group U2 drew much smaller audiences than was expected during his current tour in South Africa, caused deep dismay and shock on Sunday after openly giving his support to the ANC’s genocidal-hatespeech song ‘Shoot the Boer.’ Within ten minutes, a new Facebook page calling for the boycotting of his band U2  was put on Facebook…

And popular Afrikaans singer Steve Hofmeyr dumped his U2 tickets worth R5000 into the Jukskei River in protest against Bono’s comments on the “shoot the farmer” song.Hofmeyr said in a tweet: “I have just dumped my R5000 worth of U2 tickets in the Jukskei. I’m going home. I can find no context for that song. Sorry&goodbye”.


 Afrikaans singer Steve Hofmeyr: “I just dumped by two R2500-U2 tickets in the Jukskei river. Reason: ? I cannot find any good context for hatespeech such as “Kill the Boer’ song. Bono is trying lick the ANC’s ass by justifying and condoning genocidal hatespeech songs by comparing it to those of Ireland’s. The difference Bono: Your songs are in a safe environment, ours is not. You live in peace in Dublin but we Boers are being murdered like flies. I see right through the populist-holes in your brain.“!/photo.php?fbid=10150102723694559&set=a.88208899558.84015.41171789558

Boycot U2

2010-2011 picture album of murdered Boers:

Last year, this ‘ song ‘ was banned by the Pretoria High Court in 2010 – the court ruled that it contained genocidal hatespeech which stirred up feelings of hatred against white Afrikaans-speakers and called for their mass-murder.  A trial now is pending in which the ANC is spending vast amounts of money to try and get it unbanned. The civil-rights movement Afriforum opposes the unbanning move – and it is still pending before the court. Bono thus also interfered in the ‘sub-judice’ ruling regarding pending legal procedures in South Africa.

Afriforum argued in its affidavit opposing the ANC’s demand for its unbanning that the word ‘boer’, as is being sung in this context, is a derogatory word referring to farmers, all whites and to Afrikaners in particular.” More than 3,880 ‘Boers’ i.e. Afrikaans-speaking farmers, have already been murdered under ANC-hegemony since 1994 – and many tens of thousands of whites are also murdered in the towns and cities, often in extremely cruel ways which indicates a high level of hatred towards their victims.

Top genocide expert Dr Gregory Stanton of Genocide Watch started expressing his concerns ifrom 2003 about the ANC-regime’s supporters calling for the genocide of ‘a very visible minority, namely the Boers’, in a song which was inflaming feelings of hatred towards them. 

Even one of the world’s most respected news-publications, the Times of London, reported on March 28 2010 that “white  South African farmers are being wiped out’ and that the banned ANC genocidal hatespeech song “shoot the Boer” was fanning the flames…
