I have just tweeted: “What goes around comes around. Britain supported terrorism against South Africa in 1980s, now they have it at home.” I feel sorry for the British people about the gruesome murder of a British soldier in Woolwich. However, the problematic ideology is not Islam but political correctness. There are almost worse horrors happening every day in South Africa, yet the media do not even talk about it because it is not politically correct, being attacks by blacks upon whites. In the 1980s, there were 240 terrorist attacks on Wimpy Bars and other public places in South Africa, as well as the Church Street bomb in Pretoria in which 19 people died. Yet British popstars were collecting money for the perpetrators of these acts! Nelson Mandela gave the order for the Church Street bomb from his prison cell and the City of London erected a monument to him which was unveiled by the then prime minister, Gordon Brown.
The problem is not the terrorists; it is the media. They thrive on these horrors, yet they carefully select what they show and what they do not. This statement by Cameron already shows his immense fear of the media. He is grovelling in front of Islam and multiculturalism. He is managing the “outcry” of the ordinary British people.
In South Africa, the BBC and its South African counterparts have now progressed so far that when incidents like this happen, the victims have to blame themselves. That will be the next step: the British people will be blamed for multicultural violence. Extremist acts like this will be seen as “caused by” white British racism.
The worst is: as in Orwell’s dystopian novels, people ultimately get used to it. They worry about their mortgages and car payments and are just glad to have survived another day of violence on the streets. It always happens to someone else.
Our present in South Africa is your future.
