Afrikaners began their existence as a poor group of settlers marooned in a dangerous land. They remained a largely poverty stricken underclass, by their European betters. Their children were taught they were inferior, and that their language was a grotesquerie to be removed. They attempted to build up a functional, agriculture based societies amid extreme hostility from competing tribes, before briefly succeeding at creating something resembling a future for their children. They were then invaded by the British. T
hey fought off the first invasion, only to be faced with a second. In the second war of English aggression, Afrikaners had their farms torched, their houses destroyed, and had to watch as their women and children suffered and died in the first deployment of concentration camps in the 20th century. They lost 50 percent of their children and tens of thousands of their women, a demographic tragedy from which they would never recover.
Within just decades of near extermination, Afrikaners over-reacted (as any ethnic group would do) and tried to assert dominance over Sub-Saharan Africa. They succeeded in creating the richest and most sophisticated state on the continent. Their rule was marked by oppression of other groups in the country and a policy of ethnic supremacy, much akin to what took place in Angola and Liberia. In an effort to exonerate themselves for their own self-defined sins, the United Kingdom committed its third atrocity against the Afrikaners, along with the United States and the rest of the Western world.
Holding Afrikaners to a standard above any other oppressor groups at the time, including in Africa, the Anglophone world spun a revisionist web demonizing Afrikaners for creating a state comparable to any of their own 40 years prior, under far harsher conditions. Rather than the over reacting, nearly exterminated, under-class fighting for survival, Afrikaners were painted as a powerful, oppressing wing of “white supremacy”, having their identity permanently tarnished to this day. In asserting a naive, self-serving, narrative, replete with double standards that held people with white skin to a uniquely high standard, and as an effort to distract from their own self assigned blame, the Western world would dedicate itself to tearing down the Afrikaner state.
For politically motivated reasons that say more about the schizophrenic guilt complex of the United States, the United Kingdom and their unique histories, Afrikaners, having supplicated themselves to the Western world, were denied the ability to finally carve out a state of their own in which they could finally build a future for their children. Instead the Western condemned and demonized them, while glorifying and abetting those who would see them destroyed, hypocritically ignoring numerous other less productive and more oppressive regimes, to finally complete their last self flagellating lash on the Afrikaner, finally, and permanently, dispossessing him of any state at all.
Afrikaners now find themselves an attacked, dispossessed, often poverty stricken, and shrinking minority, treated as an evil oppressor by the history books of the world whose same writers condemned them to their fate. Their poverty stricken children are excluded from scholarships, university places, and jobs. They are not taught their own histories, but are told that they are born dirty oppressors, just 3 generations after their ancestors were taught that they were born dirty bastard peasants. Afrikaners are regularly told (often in a threatening tone to) "go back to Europe where you belong". Well, just as was the case when they were initially marooned, they remain a threatened and ethnically persecuted minority group that cannot leave, since they have no other passports and wouldn't have had for may generations prior. So they are left, to die in their thousands, while the European governments that left them there, and haven't seen a news headline about South Africa for years, ask how that lovely chap Nelson Mandela is doing. This page attempts to at least chronicle the atrocities that define the state of modern Afrikaners and their unravelling story toward oblivion. It is a story that would otherwise go ignored by a world that once dedicated itself to toppling the Afrikaner, but got bored picking up the bloody pieces.
