WHO WERE THE BOERS?
The Boers were the 250 thousand white men, women and children born and bred in Africa; who had trekked from the south ever further into the empty wilderness of South Africa, - smeared, harassed and persecuted by the white colonial powers of the Netherlands and Britain, attacked, robbed and slaughtered by the black impis of Shaka and Mzilikazi;
who finally, after 200 years, gained their freedom and internationally recognized independence in the Boer Republics of the Transvaal and the Orange Free State;
who bravely defended their farms and towns against the greed and overwhelming might of the white British Empire during two Freedom Wars, the last of which, 1899-1902, is known to the whole world as the ‘Boer War’;
whose farms were burnt down and whose women and children were herded at bayonet-point into concentration camps, where the British imperialists used disease and hunger to kill off 22 927 Boer children and 4 177 Boer women in order to force their unbroken fighting men in the field to surrender.
This page is also dedicated to these modern descendants of the freedom-loving victims of the modern world’s first holocaust and genocide, who have been vilified and smeared and eventually robbed of all their lawful inheritance, and who are now being killed, raped, abused and hounded off their land by an orchestrated campaign of terror and discrimination under a communist Boer-hating Regime,
- lest we forget the injustice of it all, the brutal oppression of a small, God-fearing nation and the God-given right of such a nation to an own homeland and government according to its Western, democratic, Christian principles.
WHO ARE THE BOERS?
The Boers of today are the physical and spiritual descendants of those 250 thousand white men, women and children born and bred in Africa;
who returned to the ruins of their farms and homesteads after the humiliating Peace of Vereeniging in 1902,
who were railroaded into the semi-independent Dominion of the Union of South Africa in 1910 together with their Boer/Afrikaner- and English-speaking compatriots of the Cape and Natal, under the pro-British Boer generals Louis Botha and Jan Smuts,
who under the leadership of Boer Generals Christiaan de Wet and Koos de la Rey rose up in a heroic, but ill-fated rebellion in 1914 to try and regain their lost freedom,
whose Boer nationalism was subsequently submerged in the development of the broader white South African nationalism, - while being able to absorb and be enriched by the English- and other Euro-centric cultures,
who, within that broader nationalism, regained the political upperhand in 1948,
who instituted the policy of apartheid (Afrikaans = separateness), - not to oppress anybody, as the Boer-hate propaganda wants us to believe, - but to do the opposite, to lead historically disadvantaged and oppressed nations out from their colonial multi-cultural and multi-national legacy to greater freedom and prosperity,
who established several black homelands, where black nations like the Xhosas, Tswanas, Zulus and Vendas could develop around their traditional heartlands into independent, prosperous states, depending on their own ability and will,
who were vilified and smeared by so-called world opinion for this basically honest and far-sighted policy of peaceful ethnic separation, which in later years proved to be the best solution to ethnic differences and conflict, implemented all over the world from Eastern Europe to Eastern Timor,
whose rulers, after the assassination of Dr Hendrik Verwoerd, were undermined and corrupted, until the whole of South Africa with all its many different nations was given away to a sovietized, communist Regime by Frederik Willem de Klerk in 1994,
whose patriots are now being persecuted for having defended their country against terrorism and intimidation,
who are still suffering from shock and disbelief, following what must be regarded as the most treacherous and unbelievable sell-out by a nation’s own leaders in history,
who are now commemorating the Anglo-Boer War, during which a hundred years ago the flower of their youth and womanhood was brutally wiped out,
who are now, once again, being hounded off their farms and homesteads by a murderous campaign of terror attacks, killings and rape,
whose very essence of being a nation is now ignored or ridiculed, their basic democratic right of registering as Boers and voting for their own leadership being denied by the ruling Regime,
who have now reached a cross-roads in their nation’s history : Either accept the (to them) alien, Soviet-style Regime as their own and disappear into oblivion, - or fight it by whatever means possible to survive as an own nation, entitled to its own freedom and independence.
