Why should Boers bother to vote?

 Why should Boers bother to vote at all?Kruger Paul convener of BoerElectionCommittee NOSE BLOODIED AT PAARDEKRAAL MET FEB172011 By Adriana Stuijta.j.stuijt@knid.nl

An anti-voting boycot has been launched amongst the 3-million-strong Boer minority in South Africa. Declining to vote in the admittedly-fraudulent ANC-run electoral system, instead there’s a groundswell of support for autonomy for this besieged ‘white’ minority.

Conservatives not only decided to boycot the forthcoming national elections under the ANC-regime – they have also launched the Volksraadsverkiesingskommissie – an electoral election commission which plans to hold its first all-Boer elections to chose their own leaders in their own tradional Boer volksraad in September. Their only purpose is to gain autonomy for the Boer people – peacefully.

 Meanwhile the boycotters against the ANC-run national and municipal elections — such as Kallie du Preez, (writing in the Parys Gazette), mount powerful arguments against the Freedom Front party’s claim that ‘a no-vote for them would be a vote for the ANC.’

Instead, many Boers believe that the Freedom Front Plus should step out of ANC-ruled electoral processes altogether, and join them instead to try and obtain political autonomy. The Freedom Front Plus already represents the “Afrikaners’ in the Unrepresented Nations and People’s organisation in The Hague (UNPO). The FF+ also supports the idea of an independent homeland for the ‘white’ minority in South Africa. It has most of its support in the Christian-Afrikaner enclave Orania. However the Boers view the FF+ as sellouts for continuing to participate in the increasingly chaotic and fraudulent ANC-cabinet, where its leader Pieter Mulder was appointed as deputy-minister of Agriculture.

Du Preez writes: “The Politics of Lies have brought the Boers to this predicament”:

“It is exactly by participating in the Politics of the Lies that our nation has ended up in its present predicament. For 17 years the socalled ‘opposition parties’ have been growing fat in the seats of parliament, but everything merely deteriorates at a increasingly rapid rate. The FF leader sits on the gravy-train together with the ANC and they only have one purpose: namely Rands and Cents. This so-called opposition party just sits and eats up the hard-earned taxpayer’s money. “

Vote Right – Stay Away:

He warns (article below): “Be aware of the non-vote factor. It could become the majority which can never be beaten at the polls. So wake up. Vote right – stay away.’ He also urged Boer voters to withhold their taxes ‘from this corrupt and sick system.’ “Please explain to 5-million – if we all stand together – could ever beat 50-million black voters at the polls? Do you think that we (Boers) can beat this very diseased, rotten and corrupt ‘democracy of the ANC’ at any polling booths? So do you really think they (the ANC) will give up their present lavish existence voluntarily – even if they were to loose at a ‘cooked’ election?”

“Everything which our forefathers built up and owned, they bought with their blood. And we (Boers) have lost everything they created – at the Voting booths. Our party is ‘Vote Right – Stay Away”. ANTI VOTING BOYCOT Kallie du Preez Parys Gazette Mar102011

The Freedom Front Plus Party – which drew only 127,217 votes from the white Afrikaans-speakers in the last election in 2004 and have a mere four very ineffective members in Parliament – have in turn obtained the help of big crowd-pullers such as the extremely popular artist/singer/songwriter Bok van Blerk. He composed the song “My Kreet” (My Scream), an emotional plea for help for his besieged people, and in which he also pleads with his fans to continue voting in the ANC-ruled electoral system.

Boers have no influence on any ANC-ruled electoral process whatsoever:

Indeed there seems to be very little point for Boers to participate in any national elections organised by the ANC-regime, because of their very small minority of no more than 3-million people. White voters are fractured into a variety of parties including the Democratic Alliance under Helen Zille – who does not speak up on behalf of Boer/Afrikaner voters —  and tiny parties such as the Christian Democrats. The Boer-Afrikaners who have persistently voted for the Freedom Front Party only managed to gain four seats in the National Assembly (parliament). And only one Afrikaner from this party serves in the cabinet: deputy-minister of agricultural Pieter Mulder.. Previously, under the leadership of General Constand Viljoen, 424,555 Boer/Afrikaners had cast their votes for the Freedom Front party in 1994. However under the leadership of Pieter Mulder, its support dropped to 127,217 Boer/Afrikaner votes in 2004.

The Boer/Afrikaner’s minority-representation in parliament is so minimal that none of their representatives in Parliament —  despite always vehemently opposing and objecting and campaigning against the large number of genocidal anti-white employment laws put in place by the ANC-regime —  have been totally unable to block any of this illegal ANC-legislation which is impoverishing its own electorate at a very rapid rate.

  • 1994 election was unconstitutional, said Afrikaner/Boer parties which refused to participate… In 1994, initially NONE of the Boer-Afrikaner parties had registered for the 1994 elections and had refused to do so on the grounds that they viewed the election as unconstitutional. In a move that greatly dismayed and upset other Boer-Afrikaner conservatives, Genl Konstant Viljoen registered the Freedom Front with the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) on 4 March 1994 to take part in the April 1994 general elections. On 12 March 1994 Viljoen handed in a list of candidates for the FF to the IEC, confirming that his party would take part in the elections.

Freedom Front received 424,555 votes (2.2%) in 1994;  127.217 (0.8%) in 1999; 139,465 (0.89%) in 2004… and never managed to stop any of the ANC’s anti-white employment laws…

In the 1994 election, under the leadership of General Viljoen, the Freedom Front received 2.2% of the national vote (with 424,555 votes cast) and nine seats in the National Assembly. In the 1999 election their support dropped to 0.8% (127,217 votes cast) with three seats in the National Assembly. In 2001, Viljoen handed over the leadership of the Freedom Front to Dr. Pieter Mulder.

In 2003, shortly before the 2004 general election, the Conservative Party, the Afrikaner Eenheids Beweging and the Freedom Front decided to contest the election as a single entity under the name Freedom Front Plus (FF+), led by Dr. Mulder. Later, also the Federal Alliance joined the VF+/FF+. In the 2004 general election, support for the Freedom Front rose slightly to 0.89% (139,465 votes cast). The party won one seat in most of the provincial legislatures, and four seats in the National Assembly. In the 2006 municipal elections, the Freedom Front Plus received 1% of the popular vote (252,253 votes cast).In the 2009 general election, the party received 0.83% (146,796 votes cast) and retained its four seats in the National Assembly, and the full support from the small Christian-Afrikaner enclave Orania.[1] After the elections, the Freedom Front’s leader Pieter Mulder was appointed as Deputy Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries by the new President Jacob Zuma.

Alternatives: a newly independent Boer Republic where Boers represent only their own nation’s interests:

A groundswell of support has been growing steadily for a brand-new movement: the Boers want to create their own political home; elect their own representatives and have for this purpose founded the Volksraadsverkiesingskommissie (VVK)– the Boer Folk Electoral Commission.

They want to hold their own elections to chose their own natural leaders without any outside interference from black political leaders. The VVK has one purpose: to gain legal autonomy for themselves by electing efficient leaders who can argue their case in the national- and internatinal forums.

Their temporary convenor, legal counsellor Paul Kruger is targetted by a disinformation campaign in which he is targetted by infamous Piet “Skiet” Rudolph and several  cohorts (description of his career below).  This burly crowd of Afrikaner bullies showed up at the latest meeting of the VVK on February 17 2011 in Paardekraal, Krugersdorp – one man walked up to Kruger and slugged him so hard, without any provocation, that Kruger ‘s nose bled profusely while he continued his speech. Three men were arrested at this meeting: one was Piet Rudolph, wh threatened another Boer with a firearm, according to Kruger.

Piet Rudolph – the man of all parties:

Rudolph Piet Skiet agent provocateur at Volksraadsverkiesingskommissie Feb2011 Krugersdorp Rudolph has always been a ‘man for all parties”. He also was widely known among Afrikaner conservatives for acting as the ‘ political bully ‘ at many of their meetings. Boer-State Party leader Robert van Tonder told me personally that he and other party-members became “wary” of Rudolph, and voted him out as their deputy-leader because of his rapid party-hopping: born in the village of Vischkuil near Springs in June 1937, Rudolph first becdame city councillor in Pretoria for the National Party breakaway —  the Herstigte Nasionale Party led by Dr Albert Hertzog. Then he suddenly joined the Conservative Party; then the Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging; then he became a deputy leader of Boerestaat Party and was voted out.. On April 15, 1990, angry at the unbanning of the ANC and the South African Communist Party, Rudolph suddenly led a group of young Boer men who proceeded to steal a large quantity of weapons from the South African Airforce Head Office’s armoury. In June 1990 Rudolph released a video in which he declared war on the government of South Africa, the ANC and SACP. It “was no longer time to talk” and that it “is better to die in glory than live in disgrace”, Rudolph said at the time. “All we need is about 500 Boers who are prepared to give their lives on the altar of our ideal to ensure success,” he said. He went to ground amidst much publicity, but was not given much support from any of his former political friends, including Boer State party leader Robert van Tonder. The latter, at the time, also personally told me that he ‘opposed Rudolph’s use of violence to gain political independence for the Boers. ‘ In this period, the Boer State Party had applied for membership of UNPO – but was turned down because of the violent actions by Rudolph. UNPO membership is only granted if unrepresented minorities swear off the use of violence to gain their political objectives.

Van Tonder also told me personally that members of his party had become ‘suspicious’ of Rudolph. Rudolph apparently eventually gave himself up un Pretoria on September 17, 1990 and led police to his arms cache. The circumstances remain murky to this day. He later was awarded R110,000 in damages from the police following an altercation with officers at the Boeremag trial in the Pretoria High Court – where Paul Kruger, the present convenor of the VVK, had been the legal counsel representing the imprisoned Boeremag men who were accused of treason. They are still sitting in a high-security jail to this day, as ‘trial-awaiting prisons’ in a trial which could go on for another 5 years… According to the ‘Pretoria News’,  Rudolph had initially claimed more than R500,000 in damages from the Minister of Safety and Security, but the matter was settled with the police agreeing to pay him R110,000. It was said that Rudolph called the police “traitors and sellouts of the Boere people” because he did not want his wife searched before she entered the court. The elderly Rudolph then told the policeman, who was 1.82m and weighed 130kg, “Mannetjie, ek donner jou (I’ll smack you)”, before grabbing one of them by the tie”. – Sapa source: http://www.iol.co.za/news/crime-courts/piet-skiet-held-after-bloody-fight-1.1029042?ot=inmsa.ArticlePrintPageLayout.ot

  1. julle almal moet ‘n klein bedrag geld by te dra tot die skep van’n produksie-groep van private Afrikaner maatskappye wat voorraad plaaslike en internasionale kliënte met kruie seep, skoonheidsmiddels, klere, onderklere, baseball caps, skoene, juwele, medisyne, kruie-medisyne, kruie mond was , kruie tandpasta, natuurlike reukweerders, voedselprodukte, biltong, wors, speserye, kruie, bier, wyn, spiritualieë, onderdele, weefsel, fietse, suiwelprodukte, papier, chemikalieë, rubber produkte ens ens. Die boere het baie rou materiaal in hul hande nou, voeg net arbeid waarde en wins op verkope te voeg sal ‘n skat en winste te bring aan die gemeenskap.Hierdie idee baie duisende werksgeleenthede sal skep, dit is hoekom Duitsland is ‘n baie ryk land nou na die groot verlies van WW2.

    • Daar is reeds mense wat begin het om entrepreneursskap soos die aan te wakker, o.a. by http://www.boerentrepreneur.com wat laasmaand begin is. Dit is eintlik ‘n natuurlike ding wat besig is om te gebeur, waar mense na mekaar toe graviteer en al hoe meer klein besigheidjies begin wat met mekaar begin handel. Ook Orania is baie interessant in die verband, kyk gerus op http://www.orania.co.za hoe hulle entrepreneurs van die mense maak, elke dag.

      • many thanks, the key to success will be when boers use their combined economic buying power to ensure that they purchase boer made products and avoid products made from outside their community… the profitable firms suplying boers will become more profitable and open more factories with accumulated profits, producing more jobs and profits – creating wealth and increased political power; money = power

  2. having read your daily reports I am completely flabbergasted,
    I was aware of the ongoing nightmare but not the horrific details – having read coverage in the Telegraph/Daily mail here in the UK!
    The Afrikaaners need a film – should contact the UK makers of ”Mugabe and the White African” – perhaps a film/ docudrama will help to galvanize western opinion and put pressure on the SA Govt..? It is clear that this genocide is defined per their agenda and performed under the guise of violent crime; I should know, I lived in Zimbabwe.

    • Indeed that’s exactly what’s needed. It’s a good suggestion. I am however only one person doing a 24.7 job because it’s become so horrific, with so many incidents each day. Perhaps you could contact the person who made Mugabe and the white African, since you are in the UK, and suggest it? You must forgive me for sounding hopeless, there are days when I am, today is one of those days. The Netherlands is commemorating its war dead today and tomorrow, our liberation. I just can’t seem to celebrate along with the rest of them until we can try and rescue as many people as we can, while we still can. Please write me if you wish a.j.stuijt@knid.nl Thank you for your kind suggestion and interest.
