Obama Officially Backs 'White Genocide' in South Africa
Former US president praised South African leaders over seizure of White farmers' land
Former US President Barack Obama has officially endorsed South Africa's leaders for introducing new laws to seize land from White farmers.
The South African Government amended the country's constitution this week, allowing for the seizure of farmland owned by White people, without compensation.
On Tuesday, South Africa's President Cyril Ramaphosa vowed to confiscate farmland owned by the White farmers since 1600s, and "return" it to the country's Black population, by introducing a constitutional amendment in parliament.
Race killings and violent land grabs have reached epidemic levels in the country, with some referring to the crisis as "White genocide."
Following Ramaphosa's promise to take back land from the countries White minority and give it to Black citizens, thousands of South African farming families have arrived in Russia after fleeing their farms for fear of death as the government, and violent mobs, take land from White citizens.
During a speech at the 2018 Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture in Johannesburg, Obama praised Ramaphosa for amending the constitution and legalizing the theft of land from White farmers without compensating them.
During his public address, Obama also called for guaranteed income.
Speaking about Obama's shocking show of support, Fox News's Tucker Carlson highlighted some of the key comments on his show.
Obama began his remarks by thanking South African President Cyril Ramaphosa for, quote, “Inspiring great hope in this country.”
Now if you’ve been following what’s going on in South Africa you might be shocked by that because it turns out Ramaphosa recently declared that he would change the South African constitution and he will do it for the explicit purpose of persecuting a racial minority, seizing their land without compensation not because they committed a specific crime but because they are the wrong color…
Thanks to policies like this many South Africans have already been murdered in race killings and many more are fleeing the country for their lives.
It’s not covered here but it’s covered in the rest of the world and it’s real.
With descendants of the White farmers having occupied the land for up to 400 years, the families have been left with no other option but to seek refuge in Russia where the government is welcoming them in.
RT reports: Up to 15,000 Boers, descendants of Dutch settlers in South Africa, are planning to move to Russia amid rising violence stemming from government plans to expropriate their land, according to the delegation.
“It’s a matter of life and death – there are attacks on us.
"It’s got to the point where the politicians are stirring up a wave of violence,” Adi Slebus told the media.
The government said it is planning to put an end to what it calls the legacy of apartheid, where most of South Africa’s land is still in the hands of its minority white population.
Rights groups have said the initiative incites violence.
There were 74 farm murders and 638 attacks, primarily against white farmers, in 2016-17 in South Africa, according to data by minority rights group AfriForum.
