Afrikaans media ignores many hatecrimes
13 March 2012 Leave a comment
Especially the Afrikaans Naspers news media failed to record 10 of the dozen motiveless, vicious hatecrimes which targetted Afrikaners and a foreign aid-worker in SA this past week. The Afrikaans news-media even failed to accurately record last week’s deeply mysterious, vicious assassination of Mrs Rita Vuyk of Veenendaal (NL) – a Dutch volunteer who since 2005 had helped obtain funding for, and ran the Mangwazane Aids-orphanage in Ubombo, KZN near SA pres Jacob Zuma’s home-town.
Beeld did however record the attack, left, on Afrikaner smallholder Mrs Ada Viljoen, 78, who was beaten unconscious in a motiveless attack at her Potchefstroom smallholding on March 12 2012. They emphasized the fact that her black housekeeper Mrs LIesbet Pilane was stabbed in the hand and neck. Both women reportedly are in hospital: The elderly Mrs Viljoen with ‘unconfirmed head-injuries’, the housekeeper ready to be discharged after she fled while her employer was being beaten into unconsciousness. This WAS recorded by Naspers. However — over the past week, at least ten other hatecrimes were carried out against Afrikaners including the attacks listed below, all on one day, which targetted smallholders and farmers in motiveless crimes. During at least three of those crimes, vile abusive cursing was used against the Afrikaner victims by their black attackers. None of these incidents were reported. Killed last weekend during this attack-wave were retired Brits farmer Okkie Els and his wife — who died from their ordeal on their farm De Kroon in Brits on March 10 2012. Mrs Els also reportedly was gangraped before she was killed. None of these latter attacks (some also listed below) were even noted for the record by any of the sonamed ‘mainstream’ Afrikaans or English-language media in SA. Brits used to have a snappy, independent local newspaper, the Madibeng Pulse, which was run by the fearless, excellent Dreyer couple. Since their paper closed down however, the attacks against Afrikaner residents in Brits and surroundings have become badly underreported.
Why are these socalled ‘independent’ media outlets failing to record the hatecrimes targetting Afrikaners in SA? We know the ANC-regime denies them… but why do the news media ignore most of them?
