South Africa, more than any other spot on earth, have been cursed with the most diverse and incomprehensible species of Liberals known to man. Due to our chequered past, we have a myriad of self-appointed liberal gurus that is omni-knowledgeable on any issue they deem fit for the planet’s consumption.
I’ll highlight a few of these indescribable annoying groups in a series of articles and let’s start with my personal favourite, the Afrikaans liberal.
The Afrikaner used to be the gnarly bunch of settlers of various European ascents that could do anything they set their minds to and did it well. The infrastructure of SA on the eternal Dark Continent is testament of their resolve.
After the Anglo-Boer War the first signs of these lacklustre, backbone-less individuals appeared, that refused to fight for survival in a unified front like the Vikings of old, but preferred to sell out their comrades in arms to the British for the proverbial pieces of silver. They evolved in this quasi-intellectual bunch of Afrikaans speaking liberals we are cursed with today.
They are most probably tertiary educated semi-professionals, that did just enough to gain the degree but failed to make the top echelon of their chosen profession. This irks them to no end and to compensate for their failure in life, they decided to be the keepers of the gate as far as armchair politics are concerned.
They are addicted to social media and prowl the Net for their favourite quarry, the Right Wing Racist.
When they locate a bunch of ordinary South Africans voicing their concern over the senseless killings of white, mostly elderly farmers in the most horrific display of torture, they pounce like a squad of demented Tiggers. Their favourite means of attack is to shout racist at anyone voicing any opinion, whether it can be deemed racist or not.
The second avenue of their plan revolves around shouting even harder when confronted by the now suitably irked victim, with facts and figures refuting their claims to rubbish. As soon as this happens, they snootily turn their noses around and declare in a fit of controlled tantrum that they do not engaged with racists. Fait accompli as far as they are concerned!
I came across a group of these idiots this morning where they started a FB page declaring a small, independent publication called Praag, racist and right wing while embarked on a mission to harass all advertisers in withdrawing their support on the website.
I decided to look closer at their plan but the exact above recipe was followed and my probing questions were sideswiped with a barrage of links containing derogatory mumblings of their ilk that trolls the Web. I’ll post their link for the reader to discern for themselves if anything I posted can be construed as racist or even impolite.
These “kopdoek” loving Afrikaner brigade that forever engages unsuspecting people with their enlightened halo of how many black friends they possess, infuriating black women all over the show with the condescending greeting of “haibo sissi” to show their perceived unity with the black population of this country, and pathological hate of anything remotely white, makes them the laughing stock of all sane South Africans comfortably sitting on middle ground.
I suspect the fact that they were the privileged bunch of white South Africans that could waltz into university, had the daddy-means to escape National Service by ducking to some godforsaken aunt in London, turned them into self-loathing, quivering wrecks that need to shed every last part of their Afrikaans, apartheid beneficiary heritage to redeem themselves in the eyes of the new bosses in town!
Unfortunately for the rest of the white population of the moderate persuasion, the antics of these clowns are tarnishing the black perception of all whites, seeing they are known as turncoats that cannot be trusted under any circumstance. The perusing of many blogs and interactive sites like this one, just reiterates the general black idea on whites where the first quality when referring to whites are the fake smiles!
Well, these clowns have the trademark fake smile when encountering any black person by desperately showing their yellow teeth, the black perspective, not mine and any iota of trust just vanishes into thin air.
So to all sane South Africans of any colour, please don’t confuse these annoying species of fakeness with the normal run-of-the-mill white guy that just wants to be left alone to enjoy the braais, the sunshine and the many offerings this country makes available to its inhabitants!
Next time, the local English Lib!
