The guardian has fallen SO far, its genuinely unbelievable. It just to be the intellectuals broadsheet, with mildly leftleaning politics. Now its little more than a ultra left leaning tabloid.

What research did the author of the article actually DO on the plight of farmers on south africa? Did he visit there and interview any of them? Did he research the crime stats of the country and compare them to the crime rate amongst farmers? Did he interview any of the victims? Or the perpetrators?

No, he just arbitrarily decided on a conclusion, that the violence is just endemic, despite the mountains of evidence to the contrary. I know several people from south Africa, and the story is always the same. Fear, and horrendous, horrific levels of violence. The farmers suffer the worst of it because:

a) The blacks want them off the land b) They are in the rural countryside where they are more isolated and vulnerable

Some or many of the murders probably aren't politically motivated, the farmers just get hacked to death and tortured by their workers because they can't see a reason not to, which is probably worse.

Exactly. It's a mere propaganda piece.

Well, now that Trump has tweeted about South Africa, it is becoming ever more imperative to pooh-pooh it as the feverish imaginings of the literally Nazis.

Crazy to think that at one point in time they worked with wikileaks and published/spread some info

Well, that reporter was Glenn Greenwald who, while center-left himself, has been openly critical of this sort of loony behavior. That said, the Guardian has been infected for some time now. It's disease is just in full blossom these days.

He would not have done any research . It is to un inform people who don't want to be informed in other words "Intellectual left" . Guardian is not fit for a news stand but a toilet roll .

Spot on. And Guardian readers are the worst because they THINK they're reading 'the intellectuals broadsheet' and THINK they have the best and most perfect of informed opinion. In other words, they're so far up their own arses they can't see that they're subscribers to yet another far-left shit rag promotiong far-left shit with only one viewpoint.

I"m glad they're being forced to deny this. It's a step forward. Now more people will have heard of it.

A note about Roche, leader of the Suidlanders. He's a Jew, a close associate of ANC leaders such as Ramaphosa, and a deadbeat dad. http://historyreviewed.com/?p=5706

Yep. This will get streisanded....LOL.

He is not the leader, but a prominent spokesperson, who went to America to raise funds for them. He is a decent guy, but his past with the ANC and reluctance to address certain (((issues))) gives him away. Jan Lamprecht, from HistoryReviewed, he is as honest as they come but he just needs to dial it back from 11.

As for farm murders being 'regular crime'. LOL! These aren't robberies. Nor are they 'mere' murders. Something like 17% of these people are murdered. And the elderly farmers are targeted! And this sort of 'regular crime' did not happen before 1990, when there was a functional government. And farm murders took a weird 'hiatus' while the World Cup is on! And people have confessed to being told by actual political leaders to commit the attacks! It is so blatantly political and racial, you have to be willfully ignorant to not get it.

Not a single piece of evidence against the claim, just calling the people who talk about genocide "far right". The left arguments nowadays: namecalling.

Yep. That's pretty sad, actually.

Regardless if this were every day violence, it wouldn't take a genius investigator, something journalists used to be... to see a pattern and report on this pattern of every day behavior!!!

When did such evil become good?

[–] TheSeer 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

When Satanists took charge. Which happened rather gradually over the last ~100 years, but the overall process has been going on longer, from when the (Jesuits) were banned from Catholic Europe and congregated in Bavaria, and the orchestration of the French Revolution.
