Right-wingers praise attack on prof

2011-07-15 09:57

Cape Town - A member of the Volksraad Selection Committee (VVK) issued a threat to the University of Stellenbosch (US) on Thursday, after one of their members allegedly assaulted Professor Anton van Niekerk, 57, in his office at the faculty of arts.

“Stellenbosch doesn’t have enough security to protect Anton van Niekerk,” was the alleged threat.

The VVK is an organisation which calls on Afrikaners to register on an alternative list of candidates, which will then be used to elect an alternative Afrikaner national council or “volksraad”. The aim of this is to negotiate with the ANC to create an Afrikaner homeland.

Argument

Abel Malan, 48, a businessman from Mbombela and a candidate for the VVK, arranged the meeting with Van Niekerk following an article he wrote entitled Don’t condone apartheid, which appeared in Die Burger and its sister papers on July 5.

In this article, Van Niekerk - a director of the Centre for Applied Ethics at the university - was critical of Afrikaner intellectuals who justified South Africa’s involvement in the Border War. He wrote that “as white people, we sit with enormous guilt regarding the past”.

Police spokesperson Warrant Officer November Filander said an argument started during the meeting, and “the suspect became aggressive and overturned the office desk on the professor. He also physically attacked the victim. The US’s protection services arrested the suspect and handed him over to the police.”

Malan is currently being held in the Stellenbosch police cells.

Threatening phone calls

US rector Professor Russel Botman claimed on Thursday that Malan had also “made several threats”.

Botman said at a media conference that Van Niekerk had suffered serious bruises to his face and his glasses were broken. He was taken to see a doctor and a trauma counsellor after the incident.

Botman said a security official was stationed in the office across from Van Niekerk and could act quickly to stop the attack.

When he was asked whether Malan had threatened Van Niekerk before the meeting, Botman said no, but “that doesn’t mean Anton Van Niekerk didn’t receive threatening phone calls”.

Botman said the university would increase its security to “protect our staff against this kind of behaviour and threats”.

“As a university it is our task and role to stimulate debate and constructive discussion. Academic freedom and the freedom of expression and speech go hand in hand and are not negotiable.”

Botman described the alleged assault as a “reprehensible act", saying it "deserves condemnation in the context of our pursuit of a South Africa where the rights of all its people are protected".

'Demand freedom'

Botman said some of Malan’s supporters were waiting for him outside the faculty building. After his arrest, some of them stood outside the Stellenbosch police station.

Ben Geldenhuys from Pretoria, another candidate for the VVK, said they were on a countrywide tour to introduce their candidates. They had a meeting in Stellenbosch in front of about 100 people on Wednesday night.

He explained they were like the Independent Election Commission, and would hold an election in September, where “a national council would be elected with a mandate to represent Afrikaners who wanted to be free and to demand the international right to freedom”.

They wished this right for all the people of South Africa, he added.

He described Malan as a “reasonable man” and said he wanted to put forward his opinion on the matter that Van Niekerk had written about. He suspected that Van Niekerk “started yelling” at Malan.

“Abel is a candidate because he has always found it impossible for the Afrikaner to survive in this country,” said Geldenhuys.

Praise for attack

The Verkenner (Pathfinder) movement, of which Malan was deputy president, praised Malan for his alleged attack. “The movement has understanding for Malan’s behaviour and is proud of the valour shown by its leaders.”

“This behaviour can also be seen as a warning to any other person who wants to ridicule our nation and its struggle for freedom,” claimed a statement by the movement.

It also claimed Van Niekerk’s “patronising and insulting words about the Afrikaner became too much for Abel”.

“Due to provocation by the professor, his desk was overturned and he was told in clear Afrikaans how conservative Afrikaners felt about his statements.”

Malan was expected to appear in the Stellenbosch Magistrate’s Court on Friday on a charge of assault with the intention to cause grievous bodily harm.

  • Mister A - 2011-07-15 10:10

    It just indicates why the Afrikaners will never be a united nation. So now it is this lot that want a homeland and want to be 'elected' to a position to negotiate. On whose behalf? All Afrikaners in the country? I seriously doubt it? What about that lot in Orania? Why doesnt this group (VVK) move there? A divided house always falls and clearly the fringes of the Afrikaner nation have yet to realise this.

      Smaal - 2011-07-15 12:56

      Mister A: This organization is not a house divided. It’s a house of people pressured by circumstance banding together out of necessity and they are gaining momentum. Was bound to happen sooner or later. A fox is a small scared little creature but corner it and see what happens. Unite a few foxes and see what havoc they bring. Like Malema and his ilk they offer an alternative based on a believe structure, morals and values to the Afrikaner. They offer something the Afrikaner can relate to. They offer sanctuary, protection and a sense of belonging but more important they strive for place where an Afrikaner can be an Afrikaner. They strive for a homeland and not just a little town. Now before I get lambasted about my mentioning of believes, morals and values I will state that at least the man fights for what he believes in, what is your beloved ANC fighting over? What is the moral values of the ANC and their followers, what are their values? .... need I say more....

      Liberty - 2011-07-15 13:09

      Very true. White people in general are very divided on issues, and so are Afrikaans speaking whites. What I don't like about this Prof statement is this guilt trip crap. I cannot see what I personally have to feel guilty about. I have always treated black people fairly and I have studied at my own expense and worked for everything I have. I cannot even find a job in SA anymore I need to go work 1000's of km from home. I don't feel that I owe anyone a damn thing here in SA

      GoFish - 2011-07-15 14:01

      @Smaal.. See there it is again, someone saying they speak for me. "..to THE Afrikaner. They offer something THE Afrikaner can relate to. They offer sanctuary, protection and a sense of belonging ... AN Afrikaner can be AN Afrikaner". There's the thing: I don't need to move someplace where I'm surrounded only by Afrikaners to be an Afrikaner. If I were to move to the moon I'd still be an Afrikaner, so why can't they be Afrikaners were they are now? Being separated will not make them stronger. I think my main complaint is that the picture drawn of Afrikaners appears to be of a people who are driven by fear and hate and who do not believe their culture is strong enough to surive when surrounded by other cultures. Surely the Afrikaner/Afrikaans culture is robust enough to be able to thrive amongst all the other cultures in our country..

    Every society has its radicals. Whether the radicals are from this population group or that population group or whatever, they all share one thing - a distorted view of self which they attempt to enforce on others. Intollerance, lack of vision, superiority complexes and a total disregard for the universally accepted truth - do unto others... The best example of how it should be done comes from the father of our nation. Madiba. Why can't everybody learn to live and let live, the same way that he demonstrated? We are all one people, and all one humanity. All other differences should be negligible if we simply cared enough for our fellow man.

      Jezabbela - 2011-07-15 13:34

      no Kenno, its still very much alive, especially in the Western Cape. I, as black person can give you many examples of this. 1, I shop at a store at Bayside Mall, walk out, Security asks to search my bag, 2 white ladies walk past us and she says nothing. I let her search my bag and ask her why she let the other 2 walk out, she says Management instructed her to search black people's bags only. I sent their regional manager a complaint, obviously he denied that they instructed security guards to search only black people's bags and said they would take action against the security guard. So apartheid might have died to you bec you dont experience it but believe me its still very much alive

      Lauren - 2011-07-15 13:51

      Guys, do not be so hard on Kongo. Without his Apartheid mantra, he is nothing. He will have to actually face the world head on and make something of his life without being able to feel entitled to things that he has not worked for. It's his security blanket. Go easy. It can't be easy to go through life needing such a crutch!

      Sean - 2011-07-15 10:33

      we cant klap the people who attack our farms because then we get arrested and jailed and the miscreants who attacked us testify that they were only asking for work. Almost 4000 farmers butchered since 1994 and no one seems to think this is a problem. A swift smack to the professor is perhaps only a ripple.But that ripple will soon become a wave.

    There is no such thing as freedom of speech. Everything comes at a price. Why is Anton still writing about stuff like Apartheid? It is a sensitive issue that would almost always invoke strong emotions. He was quick to blame the Afrikaner, but failed to mention the English influence. But more importantly, he failed to mention who ended Apartheid. Dont be stupid and think it was the ANC. It was the white people of this country. I'm have absolutely not guild, as I'm proud of my parents generation for doing the right thing. And I'm not going to be some bitch for something that happened decades ago. @Anton: If it is to hot get out of the kitchen.

      @TheWiseOne -so what you are saying if if you dont like what someone says you'll beat them up? hmm

      TheWiseOne - 2011-07-15 11:36

      @Bloodbane - not at all. What I'm saying is that you can not be reckless in what you say. I'm big on the fact that everyone have their own opinions. Democracy is about empathy and respect. Pointing a finger and only highlighting weakness is unfair. Please, I'm in no means trying to justify Abel's actions. The reality is that society will always have a Abel and a Malema. The kitchen comment referred to that fact that if you dont want strong reactions, dont write article which will evoke strong emotions. It is part of the game, nature of the beast, whatever you want to call it. The point - BE RESPONSIBLE IN WHAT YOU SAY

    When will we get away from having to label people according to the color of their skin or their ancesteral heritage? We need to look at people according to what they say and how they behave. We need to develop a common understanding of welcoming variety of thought and outlook rather than hide behind labels and fear. |In essence we need to grow up and have more adult debates and discussions rather than shout names, be abusive and then work together to solve our common issues accepting variety and enjoying differences.

      what about unity in diversity?

    "They had a meeting in Stellenbosch in front of about 100 people on Wednesday night" - Goes to show that only a small amount of Afrikaners/Whites even attempt to believe in this Bullsh@t

  • Boer-Nation - 2011-07-15 10:43

    Knowledge will set you free... knowledge is power and used correctly becomes wisdom! The term Afrikaner is extremely new and does not represent the Boers of the Zuid Afrikaansche Republiek and neither the Oranje Vrystaat. Afrikaans is a collective term used by the Union Government to unite the white people in South Africa. We Boers not boers were never part of the Cape Dutch... therefore the aspirations and ideology was, is and will not be the same. Afrikaners can’t vote on whether to be independent – only Boers can! The Afrikaans people (collective term) of today, don't know who their ancestors were or what sacrifices they made... hence the issue of self determination (in the constitution) is not widely recognised or understood. Most people in these blogs only have a frame of reference as far back as their own lifespan or a little bit of what their parents told them… most shoot from the hip and have very little factual evidence – instead its emotional rhetoric. Its easy to condemn a whole nation because e few individuals are idiots… after all isn’t that what racism is?

  • Renay - 2011-07-15 10:50

    Afrikaans communities like this don’t think beyond their own viewpoint. There are many white South Africans in this country that are not Afrikaans and don’t support, the sometimes extreme, ideas of the Afrikaner communities. What they need to realize though, that the colour of our skin, in this country, make us all either black or white (Afrikaners) So they endanger all white South Africans to racial attacks and hate crimes because they cant stop to think about the bigger picture! Stop and think! We all don’t want to be seen as racists and haters of the people in this beautiful country.

      Moi1980 - 2011-07-15 11:23

      @kongo - neither can you. You'll always be a hate filled, garbage spewing racist.

  • A View - 2011-07-15 10:50

    Anybody who uses physical methods or stoops to using foul language and those that support such actions need to have serious look at themselves. It pathetic and disgusting that people simply cannot have a rational debate without resorting to dubious tactics. South Africa needs to grow up and become mature.

  • Geraldo Mc phu - 2011-07-15 10:55

    “Abel is a candidate because he has always found it impossible for the Afrikaner to survive in this country,” said Geldenhuys. Now here is a bunch of idiots who know the solutions to their problems but cannot implement them ; simple put : Go somewhere where you will be able to survive . P.S by the way don't forget to take Julias and Shivambo with you.

      camelthief - 2011-07-15 14:50

      Impossible to survive? he seems to be doing quite well for it.. able to travel all the way from Nelspruit to Stellenbosch to throw a wobbly at someone..obviously has cash to waste!

  • motsokwane - 2011-07-15 10:58

    They praise the attack on prof just like Malema praises the attack on farmers. How different are the right-wingers to Malema? I think there is an element of commonality between them.

  • Annman - 2011-07-15 10:58

    Get these narrow-minded conservatives out of our more liberal province! You're not welcome in the Western Cape. We want to be Boer-Nouveau, not verkramptes living in 1950. We're the province of Jack Parow, not those "other guys."

  • World Traveler - 2011-07-15 10:59

    Once again it shows that apartheid is a product of the afrikaners and not the English speaking South Africans. Unite in the DA for a better South Africa for ALL! Vote DA in the next elections.

      Verbatim - 2011-07-15 11:02

      Apartheid is no more. Wake up pommie. Its ANC nepotism and murder now. Woohooo

      Neil - 2011-07-15 11:23

      @kongo: The term you are looking for is Miesies.

      jowza - 2011-07-15 11:51

      neil.you keep using all these terms and you call others racist

      Neil - 2011-07-15 12:14

      @Jowza: You see, the problem is the masses and yourself do not understand the meaning of the word racist. What is Racist about the word Miesies and the way I applied it? You can't debate with kongo, see, I need to go to his level to make him understand he is a moron. Fight fire with fire. Next time, do a little research before you comment and make an idiot out of yourself. Despising stupid people does not make me a racist.

      @World Traveler: "...confirmed by the British Colonial government in 1809 by the Hottentot Proclamation which decreed that if a Hottentot (and Khoikhoi) were to move they would need a pass from their master or a local official. Ordinance No. 49 of 1828 decreed that prospective black immigrants were to be granted passes for the sole purpose of seeking work" - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_Africa_under_apartheid Apartheid is older than the Afrikaans language. The Afrikaners only gave it a name when they took over.

      Are your parents aware you are on their pc? The term DONKEY CAR is commonly used across the world, including but not limited to - India, Pakistan, China and Bulgaria. IDIOT.

  • BreakdownBoy - 2011-07-15 11:00

      LOL Kongo. I haven’t laughed like this in a while but tell you what, let me know how it works out for ya.

      camelthief - 2011-07-15 14:54

      "Leave Africa to the africans. We know what we are doing." So much I want to believe that, but I see zero evidence on the continent, both before colonial oppression and 40 years after it stopped.

    Well well well, it goes to show that bad behaviour and political intolerance is not limited only to a specific group of people. Stellenbosch Univeristy Prof attacked by a Afrikanner Business man in Stellenosch, who would have guessed.

    As a afrikaner i am ashamed!

      shado - 2011-07-15 11:33

      You are not responsible for how other Afrikanner behaves, just like other black people are not responsible for how other black people behave. My assumption reading your statement is that these acts disgrace you as an Afrikanner, why? Is it because certain behaviours are not associated with the grouping in question? You are only reposnible for your own actions and indeirectly for that of your children. The high morale ground one race tends to take over another is now shaken, therefore my surmation that is the reason you are ashamed. Let me know if I am off the mark but that is my analysis.

  • Mark - 2011-07-15 11:21

    Whilst most people of all races are trying to build a united SA, these people are still going on about an Afrikaner homeland. How about Holland?

    This Malan character is essentially the same rubbish as the guy who got smashed on brandy and tackled the ref in a Tri-Nations game. He also felt perfectly justified. And he also had plenty of dimwit supporters. White trash, nothing more.
