Afrikaner poverty soars by 400%

“ The time to phase out the ANC-regime’s alternative action laws has arrived – the Afrikaners are being impoverished at a rate of 400% – the highest impoverishment-rate for any SA minority… ’ –Adv Anton Alberts, Freedom Front party…

Prof Lawrence Schlemmer’s report on white poverty:

Although the ANC-regime has not even researched whether its own black-economic-empowerment laws could cause the dramatic 400% rise in the impoverishment rate of the country’s 3,5-million white Afrikaners – labour minister Mildred Oliphant vehemently denied this in parliament last week. The black-economic-empowerment laws from this year will bar 93% of all the whites from the SA. labour market from this year. White male breadwinners were already barred since 2003 by the ‘broadbased black-economic-empowerment Act Nr 25899’.

 White women — and even the white disabled — also face the poverty-axe from the ANC regime’s draconic, nazi-style black-economic-empowerment laws this year:

Below, ANC-newspaper New Nation journalist Gaongalelwe Tiro interviewed employment specialist Andile Tihoaele as gloating about it: quoting him as saying:  ‘white women would be the biggest losers once the BEE-amendment bill was enacted early next year…This represents a victory for the black business lobby which has been fighting for their exclusion.’

Poor Afrikaners are not ‘entitled’ to government benefits or food-aid stamps: because the ANC-regime claims ‘there are no poor whites’

Yet the Afrikaners are not ‘entitled’ to survival-benefits from the government – not even food-aid stamps; despite the fact that SA president Jacob Zuma personally visited two Afrikaner squatter camps with a large media contingent – and promised that the Afrikaners would also get government help. That was two years ago.

 Freedom Front Plus MP Adv Anton Alberts warns that the ANC-regime is in total denial about the grinding poverty suffered by the Afrikaner minority. “Specifically labour minister Ms Mildred Oliphant, who told parliament that ‘there was no correlation between ‘affirmative action’ and white poverty ’in response to our formal questions about the issue,” said Alberts.

We asked the Minister, against the background of Pres Jacob Zuma’s visits to white squatter camps, to also make good the president’s promises to also help those white communities. We asked whether the government had at least done a study to establish the link between affirmative action and white poverty.

“The Minister’s illogical reply was shocking: she stated clearly that she has not done such a study ‘ because there is no correlation’. The question remains which means she then used to establish that there was no correlation if she had not undertaken a study on the subject? Did her response simply come from the sky like some kind of revelation?” he asked.

Alberts also slammed the fact that the Minister refused to carry out such an investigation – but that ‘ if such research were to be undertaken it would include all the people living beneath the poverty-line’.

“This viewpoint of this Minister stands in shrill contrast with the solemn undertaking by her own President —  who publicly undertook to ‘look into the problem of white poverty”.

Alberts pointed out that at the moment the Black Economic Empowerment laws greatly discriminate against white male breadwinners since 2003. “That fact alone would justify a special study to determine whether this law is a fair law or whether it has an effect on white poverty. It has been the FF+ ‘s own experience at white squatter camps, as well as the research undertaken by independent groups, that there is a direct causal effect between black-economic-empowerment laws and poverty of the Afrikaners. That fact alone should provide enough grounds for the Department to launch an investigation.’

Alberts said he would provide the existing independent research which has been done to the Minister and discuss this urgent issue with President Zuma once again. “The time to phase out affirmative action has arrived,’ he concluded.” Spokesman FF+: Kol. Piet Uys : of 0861 700 700 / 012-6650564
