South Africa's last few remaining racist

02 April 2012, 14:13

Right-wing racist group Afrikaner Bloed proudly won first prize at the World Press Photo 2012 multimedia contest for showing their holiday training camp for teenager boys to Dutch photographers Elles van Gelder and llvy Njioiktjien.

Their Kommandokorps indoctrinates young Afrikaner boys to treat as garbage Nelson Mandela's vision of a multicultural South African society.Elles van Gelder looked visibly shock when she told a European news afterwards given what the country had been through,that such camps still exists in manipulation young and vulnerable minds of teenage boys to follow their psychopathic rhetoric.

Elles van Gelder also says "it look like pictures taken from a very long time ago in the past...that these kids are basically brainwashed believing that all black South Africans are their enemy...that they don't see themselves as South Africans anymore".Before entering the camp they believed that South Africa is multicultural society,this changes completely once they leave this camp.

Can you imagine that?

Franz Jooste,the leader of this group of Afrikaners,was a major in South Africa's SADF.He claims that this camp is to breed a new generation of racist whites in South Africa and that less than a handful other white South Africans actually support his ideals. A very tiny minority indeed!

Franz Jooste came out saying:"I am not ashamed to say I am a racist. In South Africa you can only be one of two things. Either you are blind or you are a racist".

Despite what this man says, both these photographers Elles van Gelder and llvy Njioiktjien when touring South Africa,found that most white and black South Africans generally get on relatively well. Most of the grievances by white South Africans are high crime rates,farm murders,BEE and AA policies by the ANC government,incompetence by the ANC and such.On the opposite side of the spectrum most grievances by black South Africans are inequalities,poverty and being economically marginalised.

Franz Jooste,like most other racist groups the world over,wants their own country and their own nation without interference from the vastly different black race of people,as they refer to blacks(vastly different) when mentioning them.

Franz Jooste's camp has come under criticism by other Afrikaner groups like the Freedom Front for example.The Freedom Front condemned this camp outrightly and says "the fact that these camps indoctrinate young South African boys to hate all black people is not the solution to South Africa's problems.Wouter Wessels,youth leader of the Freedom Front, said: "Not all Afrikaners are like this man".

Pictures emerging from the camp shows young boys stamping and desecrating the South African flag and shouting: "This is how much we disrespect this thing...We are Afrikaners,We are our own people. It takes these boys less than an hour of indoctrination to come out and say they're no longer part of a multicultural South Africa.

"It takes me just under one-hour lecturing to change my mind",one boy boasted.

South Africa has 4.6million white people and this kommando korps says it has trained 1,500 people so far and looking for more recruits. Despite all this,the South African Institute of Race Relations or SAIRR says race related incidents involving serious crime are decreasing.

A 16 year boy that went through the camp admitted:"I don't like racism because people get angry at one another and maybe hit one another. This camp promotes racism in South Africa,but not as bad racism.

An 18 year boy that also went though this experience says:"This is tough. The training was tough...I was constantly in pain.

Another 16 year old said with tears in his eyes:"I wanted to prove that I can do this...I didn't want to disappoint my parents".

How dangerous is such radicalism and extremism? Do far-right extremism equate political violence? The old school overt racism and the screaming at the top of ones voice nationalism seem to have been replaced by the more defiant,belligerent,warlike,hostile,aggressive and rapacious in their defence of the national culture,pride,identity and history.

Former US President, the late John F. Kennedy, once said:"What is objectionable, what is dangerous about extremists is not that they are extreme, but that they are intolerant. The evil is not what they say about their cause, but what they say about their opponents."

Would you agree with Kennedy on that?
