South Africa sometimes seems like a bell for things to come: Escaping crime and corruption, racist left-wing policies, government collapses and energy disruptions have caused the far-left ANC party to lose the majority in recent weeks’ local council elections, for for the first time since 1994. Meanwhile, Netflix is offering South Africa scholarships only to black people.
For the first time since the end of the White Minority Government in 1994, the infamous corrupt and ineffective African National Congress (ANC) party won and earned less than 50% of the vote in local government elections. 45.6% of the votes nationwide, a crushing blow to the party of convicted terrorist Nelson Mandela, who will now have to form coalitions with other parties in many regions. In another echo of the U.S. Virginia election, the left-wing defeat is seen as frightening news for President Cyril Ramaphosa and the 2024 election.
At the same time, Netflix South Africa launched a $ 400,000 postgraduate scholarship for film or TV students, provided that applicants must be Black, Indian or Colored. White students will be completely rejected on the basis of the color of their skin, regardless of their financial background, complains the civil rights group AfriForum, which launched. a petition against Netflix’s racist policies.
“Blatant discrimination of this nature is unacceptable. With this scholarship, an ambitious white student who wants to apply will be immediately rejected based on only the color of their skin, regardless of their financial background. To demonstrate how cruelly discriminatory this scholarship is, its criteria favor the black child of a rich politician or billionaire over a white child of an impoverished household, ”said AfriForum’s Ernst van Zyl.
Meanwhile, the campaign of often military-style farm murders, dating back to the ANC’s terrorist days, continues.
At 03:00 on Thursday morning, 4 November 2021, seven attackers, of whom at least four were armed, invaded a farmhouse in Bronkhorstspruit, in Gauteng province. After the burglar bars were cut with a bolt cutter, the attackers assaulted and tortured the elderly farm woman with a blowtorch they had brought with them. According to them, farm workers were also attacked and tied up in their homes. South Africa Today. The woman was admitted to hospital for medical attention.
Robert Stander, a member of the Muldersdrift Community Police Forum (CPF) in Gauteng, was shot dead on his farm for two cellphones and a laptop at 01:00 on Tuesday morning. South Africa Today calls “an assassination attempt by a black farm attack gang”:
“After hearing voices outside, Stander got up to see what was happening. When Stander enters the kitchen, he sees three black men pointing guns at him through the security gate.
He opened the door for them out of fear, in other words he surrendered, in the belief that if he did, the lives of his fiancé and himself would be spared.
