Anti-white racism has turned virulent - FW de Klerk Foundation

Complaint submitted to SAHRC over 45 social media posts inciting violence against racial minority

THE FW DE KLERK FOUNDATION SUBMITS A COMPLAINT TO THE HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION REGARDING 45 SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS INCITING VIOLENCE AGAINST WHITE SOUTH AFRICANS

The FW de Klerk Foundation has today submitted a complaint to the SA Human Rights Commission regarding 45 social media postings that incite extreme violence against white South Africans (see below).

The Foundation is particularly concerned about recent statements in the media and the social media that constitute hurtful racist remarks. In this regard it issued a statement on 5 January in which it strongly condemned the recent racist remarks made by Penny Sparrow regarding black South Africans who made use of public beaches on New Year’s Day.

Most media commentators viewed Sparrow's remarks and the subsequent far less controversial comments of Chris Hart and Gareth Cliff as evidence of rampant and pervasive white racism.  However, an analysis of Facebook and Twitter messages shows that by far the most virulent and dangerous racism - expressed in the most extreme and violent language - has come from disaffected black South Africans.  The messages are replete with threats to kill all whites - including children; to rape white women or to expel all whites from South Africa. 

Section 16(1) of the Constitution states that everyone has the right to freedom of expression and section 16(2) adds that this right does not extend to propaganda for war; to Incitement to imminent violence; or to advocacy of hatred that is based on race, ethnicity, gender or religion and that constitutes incitement to cause harm.

Section 10 of the Promotion of Equality and Prohibition of Unfair Discrimination Act (PEPUDA), which deals with hate speech, states that "no person may publish, propagate, advocate or communicate words based on one or more of the prohibited grounds, against any person, that could be construed to be hurtful; to be harmful or to incite harm; or to promote or propagate hatred.”

In the Foundation’s view, the messages that it has submitted to the SAHRC starkly contravene all these provisions.

The Foundation has requested the SAHRC to make use of its powers “to investigate and to report on the observance of human rights” in so far as these messages constitute hate speech in terms of section 16 (2) of the Constitution and Section 10 of PEPUDA.

It has also asked the SAHRC to use its powers to “take steps to secure appropriate redress where human rights have been violated” and, if it believes it to be appropriate, to refer communications that directly incite the killing of people or the perpetration of grievous bodily harm, to the National Director of Public Prosecutions for further consideration.

The Foundation calls on the Government and on South Africans of goodwill from all our communities come together urgently to condemn racism from whatever source it comes.

“The way the majority of white people support the Penny Sparrow racist words.  It simple shows that most south African whites are in loggerheads with the black people (sons and daughters of the soil) and are not ready for transformation. So in that case the angry black people will sort it for themselves, don’t say we never told u.  That’s why there is this continuous farm killings and hijackings towards. We don’t know what else this white people have done to provoke our compatriots. In whatever situation u (whites) finds yourself in don’t ever blame our government because you have started all this nonsense.”

“Personally I think that all 1652’s (settlers) need to just leave the country.  Like put all of them on boats (coz we symbolic like that) and just request space. Once we sorted our issues, we give conditional citizenship based on: 1) How many African languages they are able to speak. Minimum 2 African languages. 2) Complete psychological rehabilitations from 1652 disease:

3) Close monitoring and evaluation for any symptoms of the 1652 disease on a monthly basis.  Symptoms include violence, taking up too much space, talking over Africans, rape, stealing and other such long finders habits, murder, superiority complex , assertion as natural leader of Africans etc. 4) Comprehensive rehabilitation and resocialisation on how to be human. Any sign of relapse such as pronunciation of Sihle as Shisle, you back on the boat to England and Holland. Nisiqhele amasimba at this point.”

“Dear white People

I hate you, I despise you and your entire existence and want nothing more than to destroy you and the unicellular body you evolved from. Fuck white people and “I hate white people” – there is more to those statements than blanketed, unprovoked bitterness. There is an underlying understand that you don’t see that I assume is evident.

I hate white people. I’m sayng that I hate that I have to be compared to you in order to get recognition. I’m saying that I hate the fact that everything that I do is judged by your standard. I hate that no matter where I go I will be scrutinized by your principles. I hate that I cannot exist without being subjugated to you. I hate that you don’t have to think about these things on a regular basis.”
