“Dog bites man” is not news, but “Man bites dog” is.
It also applies to spotting bullshit in the news. Stabbing someone to death is just not a white thing in South Africa. It is a black or coloured move. It is what they do, not we. Now if you hear of a white man who shot someone to death, then you can believe it, because that is what whites do…but stabbing? Nahhh. Who are they trying to fool here?
That is what I thought when I read a few weeks ago about five white men and a woman arrested in Boksburg after a 15 year old black boy was stabbed to death in an open field between a black township called Primrose and the white suburb of Boksburg.
Two boys, one 15 the other 18 walked through the field and the 15 yo was beaten up and stabbed to death…apparently by whites wearing balaclavas. Apparently the black mother of Sibusiso Titimani was alerted by a boy who told her. ‘mama ka Sibusiso! uyashaywa uSibusiso ngamabhunu’ [Sibusiso is being beaten up by the boers],”
Nearby, an innocent white family lived, so the police kicked their doors down at 03h00 in the morning and arrested them. The media splashed it out that 16 guns and 15 swords were found together with camouflage clothing and wait for it…the obligatory “Nazi-badge” that was obviously thrown in by the police.
Apparently, presumably and allegedly, according to the media, they carried out the killing of the 15-year old black boy in revenge for the killing of rightwing leader Eugene Terreblanche.
The story made international headlines. British newspaper’s vilification of white South Africans
Even their names were splashed all over the newspapers. “Susanna Harmse, 50, was arrested on Friday with Wesley Courtney, 27, Christopher Duvenage, 25, Daniel Harmse, 19, Abraham Harmse, 50, and Christopher Harmse.” Source
All Afrikaners then. All rightwing fanatics and murderers… right?
Now at this stage anybody who grew up in South Africa would know exactly what happened here.
The 18-year old friend of Sibusiso beat him up and stabbed him to death in the field and then blamed it on the “white peoples”… but proclaiming the obvious truth would be akin to sacrilege, for these noble savages are little angels who can do no wrong and the whites are the evil devils, yadda yadda bullshit!
The sensationalist black newspaper Sowetan and its 3rd-rate reporters such as Mogomotsi Selebi obviously tried to climb on the mudslinging band wagon and rubbed it in… “Heavy caliber guns, ammunition and rightwing emblems…” were found. Sowetan sensationalist bollocks
The MSM tried their best to turn this into a racial hate crime and blacks demonstrated against the whites outside the court.
Well it subsequently turned out that the police ended up with egg on their mugs seeing that the “heavy caliber guns” were mere pellet guns and the rest of the weapons and ammunition were all legal and registered. Further… all charges were withdrawn because the state found “no connection whatsoever” between these people and the murdered boy. They had solid alibis and none of them could be pointed out in an identity parade.
The judge had the following to say. “Somebody is going to have mud on their face,” said Snyman. “We heard that many firearms were found in your possession, but they were pellet guns. People get so upset, they come outside court toyi-toying, (but in the) meantime these people have not even been pointed out… It’s always much better if you hear all the evidence. There is nothing against the accused as it stands.” ET revenge murder charges withdrawn
The family’s lawyer, Boela van der Merwe, said the wrong message had been sent about his clients to the community of Primrose.
“The whole matter was not properly investigated. As the magistrate said, there will be mud on someone’s face.
“People jumped to the wrong conclusions.”
But you see… this is how propaganda works. Because the articles that were originally posted, were on the front pages all over the world. But then when the people were acquitted, the international media never mentioned it. They have slung the mud and some stuck… they are not going to wash it off now.
They achieved exactly what they wanted to. The vilification and blackening of the White South African, especially the Afrikaners.
