The Bulls-Eye on the Dart Board

18 February 2013, 09:00

What I’m about to say has been said on numerous occasions, by a large array of different people within vastly different cultures or classes.

The Establishment of a new State: For the Afrikaner people.

Now before you jump on your high horses and accuse me of owing allegiance to some or other far-right Afrikaner ‘beweging’, hear me out.

South Africa consists of various races consisting of vastly different cultural practices and beliefs. Before 94 the ‘Afrikaner’ minority had been oppressing a vast majority of the nation illegally and criminally. Although they had the skills and passion to run the country properly and effectively, they did so only for themselves. The rest of the black population were being excluded from governance and services. The population was under the control of the government, and the media censored to suit its needs and that of a selective few within the nation. Apartheid was an injustice carried out against humanity.

At this point, you might believe that I’m straying off topic. You would be wrong to assume that as the above mentioned paragraph stands as a reminder of where we were and what the future might hold for us. Our history has led me to believe that our future lies within our own hands. We have committed horrendous acts of criminal injustices and heinous crimes against humanity; some unwillingly, some unknowingly and some purposely. Point stands; we made a mess of things. In order for us to move forward, we need to acknowledge our mistakes, no matter how grave those mistakes were. Regret and shame seems to be the order of the day when thinking about our past. I would like to remind you that it is not shameful to long for the days that you found joyful in spite of the situation that had manifested itself within that time.  It’s not shameful to long for a Home. We have become complacent in this country, oblivious to the imminent dangers that face us as a ‘secluded’ society. 

That’s it for the past. It is our duty to focus on times to come. The prosperity of future generations is dependent on our present actions.  

I’m writing this piece in order to reach out to those lost within the country, those without a place of being, being that which they are, different from most, yet deserving of the same rights refused to them by the government. Our culture is not one which the majority of this nation seems to believe is legitimate or even tolerable.

It’s being ridiculed left, right and centre and threatened through various acts, including physical acts such as murder and abuse. Our way of life is scorned by the government, and our pride somehow equates to racism. The Majority of the Nation shares this belief, as is apparent when one pays close attention to the current news, happenings around the country and personal endeavors. Hate is the feeling which most of our countrymen carry towards the Afrikaner people.

Baggage from the past are opened to justify discriminating acts within the present. We have all been told we are not welcome here, and it hasn’t been confined to only a few cases. Personally, I’ve heard this hate-filled garbage from the department Home-Affairs, policemen, custom officers, various ministers and even Presidents.

Can I safely assume that it’s obvious we are not wanted? Perhaps we should cling onto a dream within this reality and convince ourselves on a daily basis that this is not the case. I have seen too many Afrikaners justifying the oppression carried out upon them, by reminding themselves of the past. Perhaps we have reached a moment in time where we ought to accept that as Afrikaners we are the Bulls-eye on the dart-board within this country. Accept the fact that we are the tiny red target, and eventually the target will be darted, until the cork is done and dusted.

We have lost our identity, and as a consequence; our Unity. Never have we stood this far apart from one another. I hope I’m not the only one wanting to reconcile our factions and our heritage.

I have no affiliation towards any pro-white group, nor any political establishment. My article is aimed solely at all those sharing the Afrikaner values, irrespective of race or religious belief. Our culture is pretty much in chime with most other western cultures, although parts of it have to be rediscovered.

We require sovereignty from the current state.

In order to survive we need it.
