Dutch MP fights for Afrikaner rights
28 September 2011 Leave a comment
In April, Dutch MP Martin Bosma launched a fiery debate about the poor-survival chances for Afrikaans and the desperate plight of the Afrikaner people in the Dutch national quality daily newspaper NRC Handelsblad. link On 28 September 2011, Bosma said he would plead for the survival of the Afrikaans language and the people who speak it after he was elected chairman of the Dutch Language Union’s interparliamentary committee. link also: Afrikaner children denied survival rights – Breyten Breytenbach documentary about Afrikaner destition also: Dutch Freedom of Speech articles about Afrikaners descent into genocide bullets fly in Krugersdorp
Bosma thus inadvertently launched a debate about the survival-fight of the Afrikaners which is beginning to spread across the Dutch-language regions of Europe with this first salvo in NRC Handelsblad. Bosma on April 20 wrote an article in the country’s top international daily, NRC Handelsblad, praising the brilliant uniqueness of the Afrikaans language’s poetry. He was ‘pleading for its survival and of all the people who speak it,’ he warned. Bosman said ‘Afrikaans is Dutch’; and that ‘the Dutch should be concerned about the way in which Afrikaans was being plowed under by a deliberate anglicisation policy under the ANC-regime”.
He pointed out that there was a growing counter-movement among young Afrikaners and Afrikaans-speaking people of colour – ‘because the majority of Afrikaans-speakers are slightly tinted ‘ – to try and rescue their language and the people who speak it.”
Bosma’s analysis is accurate: The Afrikaners call for their own autonomic land-based rights are growing ever louder as members of the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples, UNPO, the Afrikaners also demand their own autonomous Afrikaner State: since they represent 6% of the total population, they feel it’s only fair that they get autonomous control over six percent of the total SA land-surface – and specifically in those regions where they already had their internationally-recognised, own independent Boer republics before the British colonial regime destroyed them in 1902.
“The Dutch Language Union which includes the Netherlands, Flanders and Suriname is also spreading its wings over the protection of Afrikaans, writes Bosma. “Our languages are deeply embedded with one another – in the words of poetess Elisabeth Eybers who lived most of her life in Amsterdam: ‘Nogtans sal jij aan mij gebonden bly / Met die onsigb’re naelstreng wat nie breek.’ Bosma says he keeps the Afrikaans book Winternag at his side in parliament.
The Dutch guru of the anti-apartheid movement Breyten Breytenbach’s documentary about Afrikaner poverty gets no airtime on Dutch TV – link
Even the Dutch’s most beloved anti-apartheid guru, the craggy poet/author Breyten Breytenbach, who spent most of the apartheid-years in a South African prison and the rest of it in French exile, apparently now has seen the results of this support to the Marxist regime: he was looking decidedly forlorn and at times even desperate while showing the plight of his Afrikaner people in his documentary about the growing number of dismal little tent-camps where the Afrikaner nation’s growing destitution and their desperate descent into daily hunger, social deprivation and malnutrition is made very clear: if deliberately-caused malnutrition and poor maternal-care were used as medical yard-sticks to prove this white genocide, these scenes can leave no doubt: http://kyknet.dstv.com/2011/09/26/wit-armoede-in-suid-afrika/ It’s astonishing however that Breytenbach, two decades ago the absolute Darling of the Dutch anti-apartheid movement, has thus far been unable to get his documentary published anywhere in the Dutch news media. Not even on the Evangelical broadcasting station EO where Breyten always was such a welcome guest in the past.

Anti-ANC-lobby revolt is growing in Europe: cut those funds to SA regime!
The Dutch pro-Free Speech site Artikel7.nu has since that time also been running regular articles about the growing terror Afrikaner families have to try and survive each day – and drawing growing criticism of the black-majority-ruled ANC-regime’s vile treatment of its very small, highly visible Afrikaner-minority. This is a growing revolt against the shrinking pro-ANC factions which are still hanging on to their anti-apartheid roots in Europe: Flemish MPs for instance, openly publicly criticised SA president Jacob Zuma when he was a guest speaker in their parliament, demanding that he explain why so many white farmers were being murdered. A Flemish parliamentary-faction has been demanding an end to the 298-Euro multi-million development-aid funds from their country since 2008. link and link Two weeks ago in the European Parliament, Dutch Euro-MPs Barry Medlener and Lucas Hartong also submitted a demand to the European Commission to also stop the five-yearly dollops of 980-million Euro development-aid funds to South Africa. They pointed out that these funds were earmarked specifically to be used for the ‘advance of social stability, but that South Africa instead was becoming increasingly chaotic’ and that these funds clearly were ‘not being used for this intended goal.’ link
A genocide complaint was lodged against the ANC and the SA government on April 5 at ICC, the Hague by Afrikaner/Boer attorney Paul Kruger of Krugersdorp… followed shortly thereafter by Mr Cor Ehlers of the Oase Afrikaner-independence movement…’
The first seed of this sudden focus on the current plight of the 3-million strong, highly visible Afrikaner minority in South Africa was sown on April 5 2011, when a soft-spoken, gentle SA attorney called Paul Kruger – a direct descendant of ZAR-president Paul Kruger – strolled into the International Criminal Court in The Hague and handed in a formal request to investigate the ruling African National Congress party and the South African government for genocide against the Afrikaner people. http://bit.ly/fzfvvv
The news media was invited but it was widely ignored by both the Dutch and the South African news media, even though hundreds of invations and press releases were sent out well in advance to a press conference at the nearby Unrepresented Nations and People’s Organisation in the Hague – which provided the conference facilities, since the Afrikaners have been members of UNPO since 2008 through the Freedom Front Plus Party.
Even Leopold Scholtz, the Afrikaans news media’s correspondent in Holland and Flanders, failed to show up for the press conference at UNPO which outlined the ongoing annihilation of the Afrikaner nation…
Even Dr Leopold Scholtz, a decidedly pro-ANC member of the Afrikaner-press corps and the official representative for the Afrikaans-language Naspers group in The Hague — had confirmed by telephone to me that he would attend the press-conference– but he never bothered to show up. And neither did his invited journalist-wife Ingrid, who provides the news coverage from the Netherlands for Solidarity trade union’s Radio broadcasts in South Africa. Leopold sent me a response a few days later: offering his apologies, saying there were ‘family reasons he had not shown.’
A furious response from old left-wing anti-apartheid campaigners followed Bosma’s NRC-Handelsblad article. Now the debate is wide-open, with Afrikaans language-campaigners, such as Dr Joseph Secreve in the Netherlands and Dr Dan Roodt, pitting their arguments against the Afrikaner poet-laureate of the defunct anti-apartheid movement, author Breyten Breytenbach.
Interestingly on September 27 2011, the crusty old poet-laureate of the tottering Dutch anti-apartheid movement this week broadcast his own documentary about the plight of the Afrikaner people: he showed sincere pain at theincreasing destitution of his nation: slowly starving to death in hundreds of little squatter camps and shabby tents because ‘whites’ have lost most of their rights to survival under the ANC-regime’s truly strange black-economic-empowerment laws. South Africa is in fact the only country in the world which has found it necessary to protect its own ruling 45-million black majority’s ‘job-rights’ from a tiny 3-million white minority.
The black ruling party is even deliberately denying destitute Afrikaners the rights to access the same government food-aid and survival-benefits now being doled out each day to 14-million impoverished black South Africans.
After Bosma’s opening salvo in April, the same Dutch newspaper published articles by Afrikaans-language activist Roodt, who agreed with Bosma’s comment that ‘things are not going well with the Afrikaners and their language under the ANC-regime’. Breytenbach also got space, and in April he was still regurgitating his old anti-apartheid rhetoric, barfing out the same old vomit about ‘Afrikaans being mainly spoken by people of colour, that it is ‘ a creole language created in the mouths of slaves, servants and Boers, a language which was hijacked by the apartheid-regime to prove their ethnic-European origins with’. http://www.artikel7.nu/?p=56296 He however had changed his tune by September – after he produced his White Poverty documentary.
Expat Dr Joseph Secrève: “The racist attacks which have cost 20,000 Afrikaner lives over the past 17 years; the violence; the 30,000 annual rapes of babies and toddlers… that’s why Afrikaners are clamouring to leave the Heart of Darkness…’
However SA expat Drs. Joseph Secrève, a leading member of the Pro-Afrikaans Action Group (PRAAG) did not respond to Breytenbach’s old anti-apartheid rhetoric. Instead he wrote: “Critics of Bosma’s support for Afrikaans, should first investigate the way in which the Afrikaners were reduced to ‘untermenschen’ by the English at the start of the previous century – long before apartheid emerged.
‘Lord Milner: the Boer war ‘s purpose was to eradicate every trace of Afrikanerdom… ‘
“ During the Anglo’s war against the Boer repubics, its financier Lord Milner described the war’s purpose as “to eradicate every trace of Afrikanerdom from South Africa; and the English demonised Afrikaans as “that Miserable bastard jargon“.
When the National Party won the elections and declared South Africa an independent republic in 1961, Lord WF Deedes reacted with: ‘The Afrikaners made two mistakes, first to leave the Commonwealth and secondly by surviving.’
“Ever since that time, a ruthless propaganda-war has raged against the Afrikaners, demonising them as a loathsome people with unsound principles. English-South African author Nadine Gordimer even won the Nobel Prize for Literature by describing Afrikaner women as “lower than rats, closer related to plants, just fit enough to be raped in an act of genus preservation.”
“The anti-apartheid hysteria was merely a continuation of the Anglo-Boer war through other means. The foreign governments and big multinational conglomerates were keen to get their hands on SA’s mineral wealth and wanted to rid themselves of the high taxes levied against them by the apartheid-government. Ever since Mandela took over political governance, the unemployment among blacks had doubled and soem 60% of the entire population now believe that life was better for them during apartheid – referring to far less violence, efficient service-delivery by the government, and easier to find jobs. To claim that Afrikaners are leaving the country ‘out of shame’ as was claimed by one of your writers, reminds me of the words by George Orwell: “you must be an intellectual to believe such nonsense. No normal person could be that stupid.’
‘The fanatical pursuit of ‘positive discrimination’ against whites, the genocidal chant One Bullet One White Infant, the constant chanting of Kill the Boer by youth league leader Malema under order of his communist masters, the annual 30,000 babies and toddlers being raped, the racist attacks against Afrikaners which have cost 20,000 Afrikaner-lives over the past 17 years – those are the primary reasons Afrikaners are clamouring to leave the Heart of Darkness. It may be a shock to know that Afrikaners – of all the nations which ruled over South Africa – were the only ones who never called for the destruction of others, but who instead wanted to cultivate the various language-groups. And neither were they ‘nazis or fascists’ – on the contrary, the Afrikaners fought against the Nazis with the Allied forces. If it wasn’t for those left-wing idiots with their admiration for cannibals and mass-murderers such as Idi Amin, Robert Mugabe and Pol Pot – while the Afrikaners were being boycotted – Afrikaans could have created a much greater defence agains the current language-imperialism from England and its ANC-puppet government. In short, Afrikaans is dying because of the Left – nobody else” . Drs. Joseph Secrève. Amsterdam http://www.praag.org/rubriek145.htm
Dr Dan Roodt: ‘ Queen Wilhelmina sent a Dutch warship to rescue ZAR-president Paul Kruger from imprisonment and humiliation by the British… the ANC has decided to unilaterally rename Queen Wilhelmina Street in Pretoria after its church-street bomber Abobaker Ismael, a man who killed 19 people and injured/maimed more than 200…’
Afrikaans-language activist and author Dr Dan Roodt also wrote that Bosma ‘was entirely correct.’ ” The new South Africa”, writes Roodt, ‘to the Afrikaner means (pro-black-anti-white) positive discrimination, murders on Boers and sprawling squatter camps. The survival of Afrikaans is a lot more than the survival of a language and its literature”, he warned.
“The young, brave Queen Wilhelmina (of the Netherlands) sent the Dutch warship Hr Ms Gelderland in 1900 to Delagoa Bay (Maputo) to fetch the old, romantic Boer Republic president Paul Kruger, saving him from incarceration and humiliation by the British.
” Now the black nationalistic regime is planning to change the well-known Queen Wilhelmina Street in Pretoria: they want to replace it with the name of Aboobaker Ismael, the man who committed the vile Church Street bombing on 20 May 1983 (above) in that very same Pretoria. Not far from Oom Paul’s bronzed-eyed guardian statue on Church Square, nineteen people were killed by the Church Street Bomb, and more than 200 people were injured and/or mutilated by the only ‘military triumph’ the ANC has ever ever booked. “
Things are not going well with the Afrikaners: ‘We are feeling at first hand the results of the hatespeech slogan Shoot the Boers and Kill the Boers’ . The ANC claims the right to shout ‘culture’ whenever they call for our genocide’…
“Things are not going well with the Afrikaners,” he pointed out. “Pres FW de Klerk handed over the entire flourishing country, with its army, police, economy and its central bank on a silver platter to a gang of inexperienced ex-terrorists and expats from Londen and Eastern Europe. From the ANC and his followers not one word of thanks was ever spoken. “On the contrary, like hungry crocodiles they insist on ever-more: more power, more money, more rights, ad absurdum. The governing ANC party defends its youth league leader Julius Malema in his hatespeech trials for singing the song “Shoot the Boer”, claiming that it ‘forms part of their ‘struggle-culture’. However we Boers feel at first-hand the results of this hatespeech slogan, as we are being murdered way out of proportion to our small numbers by blacks. The ANC and Malema claim the right to shout “culture’ whenever they call for genocide. Measured by the number of murders and rapes, South Africa has meanwhile become the most dangerous country on earth under their rule…
“The black-economic-empowerment laws of the ANC are being applied in the most draconian way – worse than in any other country in the world, astonishingly to protect a vast majority – a majority with all the political and nearly all the economic power — , against a very defenceless, small minority.
“The hundreds of thousands of top educated Afrikaners are now sitting unemployed, destitute in squatter camps – plakkerskampe -and small wonder: he wrote: ” Over the Easter weekend I spoke with my nephew and niece. First year students at the University of Pretoria, which is being rapidly, structurally anglicised just like they are doing to the five other Afrikaans-language universities. In some subjects, Afrikaners and indeed all white people of European origin are being actively discriminated against: a black student with an average final year exam score of fifty percent is admitted for a medical education. A brilliant Afrikaner student with an average 90 percent score is barred from studying for this subject.
Afrikaners have become second-rate citizens:
“Our children are no longer allowed to study at the universities which we have built ourselves, financed ourselves and founded ourselves. For the Afrikaners, the New South Africa means racial discrimination, farm murders and squatter camps. Afrikaners have become second-rate cizitens. We are discriminated against only because of our skin colour. What does one call that again? According the definition of the United Nations that ‘s referred to as apartheid. Writer NP van Wyk Louw, one of our greatest poets, was an enlightened Philosophe. Policitically he described himself as a ‘liberal nationalist’ – yet sometime during the fifties he wrote:
- “the demands of freedom, equal rights, equal chances for all is, when put abstractly, nearly self-evident. That is, if we take as its starting point normal humanity. However when it ‘s applied in South Africa this would mean that the small, relatively well-educated Afrikaner nation, together with the English-minority, will slide down as helpless minorities into a mass of blacks.’
“How profetic were these words. Not only single right remains self-evident for us Afrikaners today, not even the right to Life or equal treatment.,” concluded Roodt. http://www.nrc.nl
Where is Justice for Afrikaners such as Mrs Janet Odendaal, murdered execution-style in front of the Kempton Park police station? By a cop who now is out on bail and back at work?
Witnesses saw the unarmed Afrikaner woman Jeanette Odendaal, allegedly being shot dead by SA police-sergeant Manape Kgoale (below right) outside Kempton Park police station while she was inside her car, phoning the emergency number, calling for help. Sergeant Kgoale was released on R3,000 bail.
2011-04-27 Sapa, KEMPTON PARK. After the SAPF-sergeant allegedly shot dead the Afrikaner woman, the pending trial has been postponed repeatedly, and the alleged killer-cop was granted a mere R3,000 bail. The police’s independent complaint directorate’s spokesman Moses Dlamini said the sergeant – who had just been discharged from a clinic for alcohol-addiction – was arrested, appeared in Kempton Park court repeatedly, and has NOT been suspended from his job ‘pending the investigation’. Car guard Sophi Baloyi told the local news media in front of many witnesses the precise details of the way he saw Mrs Odendaal, who worked as a clerk at the Children’s Court, being gunned down execution style. .The car-guard said the ‘police officer tapped on the Afrikaner woman’s window to get her attention: ‘the white lady apparently didn’t hear him, so he walked to the other side of the car and shot her twice through the passenger window.’ She was declared dead when the emergency services showed up. It’s not known exactly why Mrs Odendaal was parked at the police station.
Pietersburg. Mrs Lita Fourie of the Tabita organisation writes that the Boer-Murder White Cross Monument located on a kopje on the highway between Pietersburg and Potgietersrus will be upgrated with more crosses of murder-victims on June 4. She writes: “We will also use the day to pay homage to each Boer farmer, wife and child who was murdered in a farm-attack. New crosses will be planted, maintenance will be done of the existing crosses. Lita Fourie 0725427352.
