https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... -land.htmlWhite South African farmers will be removed from their land after a landslide vote in parliament.
The country's constitution is now likely to be amended to allow for the confiscation of white-owned land without compensation, following a motion brought by radical Marxist opposition leader Julius Malema.
It passed by 241 votes for to 83 against after a vote on Tuesday, and the policy was a key factor in new president Cyril Ramaphosa's platform after he took over from Jacob Zuma in February.
Mr Malema said the time for 'reconciliation is over'. 'Now is the time for justice,' News24 reported.
'We must ensure that we restore the dignity of our people without compensating the criminals who stole our land.'

A 2017 South African government audit found white people owned 72 per cent of farmland
Mr Malema has a long-standing commitment to land confiscation without compensation. In 2016 he told his supporters he was 'not calling for the slaughter of white people - at least for now'.
Parliament ordered its constitutional committee to report back on the issue by August 30.
Botched and often violent redistribution of land in neighbouring Zimbabwe under ex-leader Robert Mugabe left many farms in ruins, and the drop in production triggered an economic crisis that still haunts the country.
A similar situation happened in Zimbabwe. Politicians who took advantage of the low average IQ of the population stoled all property from white farmers and this led to an economic chrisis. The stolen land was then redistributed to politicians, judges, generals, etc. loyal to Mugabe.
https://qz.com/africa/458137/mugabe-is- ... ased-away/The country that was once dubbed “the breadbasket of the region” has suffered an estimated $12 billion in lost agriculture production since the land occupations took place and has had to rely on donor handouts and food imports from neighboring countries. At least 1.8 million tonnes of the staple grain, maize, is required annually to feed the nation.
Zimbabwe’s transformation from exporter to importer of food is blamed by some analysts on the land reform program, which saw white commercial farmers lose farms to landless blacks who are said to lack the skills to farm or capital. Agriculture used to contribute some 40% of the country’s foreign currency earnings through exports.
What has been Zimbabwe’s loss, has been a gain for neighboring Zambia, where some of these farmers moved bringing with them decades of expertise for farming similar arable land.
And even though the Lancaster House agreement between the British government and the Zimbabweans had provisions for land redistribution and guaranteed compensation for white farmers, when the time came the British and other countries, including the United States, did not fulfill their part of the deal to fund the program.
It didn’t help that Zimbabwe’s government had no land distribution systems in place which made the aftermath a free-for-all. Politicians, senior members of the security forces, judges, civil servants and war-veterans picked their share. Most of them had no prior farming experience or capital.
One of Africa’s strongest economies shrank to half the size it had been at independence in 1980.
Today, fewer than 300 white farmers remain on portions of their original land holdings in Zimbabwe and many of the seized farms lie fallow prompting the slow changes in attitude and policy.
Mugabe’s hard stance was more a reaction to growing political opposition and waning voter support. He blamed the white farmers for betraying his benevolence and threatening his power base. He declared, “If white settlers just took the land from us without paying for it we can, in a similar way, just take it from them without paying for it, or entertaining any ideas of legality or constitutionality.”
For Mugabe the land occupations had little to do with righting a wrong but much about exerting power and force. He has been in power since 1980 and one of the longest ruling presidents in Africa. It was therefore no surprise that the rule of law was suspended. Mobs of self styled war veterans and youth militia had carte blanche. There was violence and terror. Several white farmers and their black workers were killed, beaten or chased away and their properties taken over.
The chaos had adverse effects on the economy, food production, and civil rights. One of Africa’s strongest economies shrank to half the size it had been in 1980. Soon record hyperinflation would render supermarket shelves bare and the national currency worthless. 10% of the population fled to neighbouring countries in penury, hunger and fear.
Of course, this is not the first time the low average IQ of a country is taken advantage of by wiseguys. The Ugandan Genocide is a much better example of this phenomenon. Their rulers, taking advantage of how obedient the Ugandan population is to whatever they are told on TV, asked for a genocide against the Tutsi. Normal people who never killed a fellow human were forced to kill neighbors they were friends with all their lives because that's what the TV told them to do. This has led to the Tutsi population being almost completely eradicated and a large number of ugandans being left traumatized by the experience of having to kill other humans for the first time in their lives, most of these humans being friends or neighbors.
Racism, to the point of genocide, continues to be a big problem in african countries of today. But this racism is not directed only at whites or pygmies. As history has shown, countless genocides have happened in africa against other black populations based on ethnic group thinking. Such problems are in my opinion due to the small average IQ of inhabitants of those countries. Take the 1% lowest IQ voters in any western country and I am sure their racism level will be maybe not as high as in africa, but certainly higher than average racism level for their country.
