Hundreds of armed black protesters face off with white farmers as South African town braces for bloodshed over farm murder case that prompted violence last week

16 Oct 2020 ~~ By Tim Stickings

A South African town was bracing for racial violence today as black protesters armed with golf clubs and cricket bats faced off with white farmers in pick-up trucks outside a court where two black men are accused of killing a farmer.
The killing of Brendin Horner has led to riots in the town of Senekal where white protesters stormed the courthouse, fired shots and set fire to a police car last week.
Today, hundreds of black protesters linked to the Economic Freedom Fighters movement - which supports redistributing land from white people - gathered outside the courthouse with some hurling rocks despite efforts to keep calm.
The black protesters were brandishing golf clubs, hockey sticks and cricket bats ahead of the two murder suspects' second court appearance today.
The farmers, who accuse the government of failing to protect them from violent crime, arrived in pick-up trucks with some in military outfits and others waving 'Boer Lives Matter' banners at today's stand-off.
The small town has been thrust into an international spotlight after the protesting white farmers burst into the court hearing last week.
One of the murder suspects had been arrested 16 times before his latest detention over Horner's killing, police minister Bheki Cele said.
Cele visited the town on Tuesday, meeting the murdered farmer's family.
Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema had warned that he would mobilise supporters to descend on Senekal ahead of today's bail hearing.
'We are going to face white men face-to- face,' Malema said in Johannesburg two days after he tweeted a picture of a rifle.
Wearing their trademark red shirts and berets, the Freedom Fighters staged a march attended by hundreds today while many white farmers arrived wearing khaki shirts and shorts, with some in military outfits.
'We must strike fear in the hearts of racists, they must never be comfortable in our democracy,' said a tweet from the Freedom Fighters' account today.
Police separated the two groups with razor wire in one street, but they regrouped and faced off in another area as police helicopters hovered overhead.
'Part of the farm murder crisis is that senior politicians, also in the governing party, readily romanticise violence against farmers in their utterances,' Afriforum head Ernst Roets said.
South Africa has the world's fifth-highest murder rate and white farmers account for only a tiny fraction of the total.
The government is preparing to expropriate white-owned land without compensation, as part of an effort to redress economic inequalities.
The alleged instigator of last week's court rioting, businessman Andre Pienaar, is in custody facing charges of public violence, attempted murder and incitement.
He also faces a possible charge of terrorism, according to the prosecuting authority.
John Mathuhle, a pastor in the town, said what was meant to be a 'peaceful' protest by the farmers outside the courthouse last week 'didn't really end well'.
'So as a result of that we had a lot of racial tension,' he said.

The African National Congress (ANC) which took over the South African government is a communist organization and Nelson Mandela was the head of it’s terrorist wing (notice how they like the color red). Mandela was imprisoned for complicity in over 150 terrorist bombings, not for the popular misconception of human rights speeches. This is the future the BLM sees for the USA.
Is this the future the BLM sees for the USA.”
Coming to a neighborhood near you. Who knows maybe your neighborhood! Maybe your house! the suburbs of Portland are finding that out. Soon after the Marxist Socialist revolution there will be no more suffering, no more pain, and chocolate strawberry sugar drops will float down gentle rivers of orange plumb fairies. All will be still and no more will children cry and no one will ever die again. This time they'll get it right.. Huh Huh....

Indeed, the responsibility should lay at the feet of the ‘Greatest Generation’. They were the last to see the true horrors of what Progressive Marxist Socialism do, but they were so protective of their kids, that they never bothered to explain what they knew and saw*. They wanted to allow their kids to ‘find themselves’, just to leave them vulnerable to a very small band of hard-leftist teachers/professors and others who then lit the fuse in the bomb that’s now going off.
What we are seeing in South Africa today will soon be happening here.

President Trump is going to lose.

I hope that he will immediately use his remaining days in office to grant emergency refuge to all the South African farmers who are being terrorized or murdered in that terrible country.

They would be the kind of excellent immigrants that this country so badly needs.

The British Empire gave South Africa independence and then washed their hands of it.
