RESPECTABLE CONSERVATIVES GET PLENTY FOR SELLING US OUT | 2003-09-27
So the Afrikaners have been trying to have their own country for over a century and a half. They had Cape Town to themselves until the British took it over in 1815. Then the Boers moved away from the British in the Great Trek. Then the British took those Afrikaners over again in the Boer War.
The Boers finally took their country away from the British again in the 1948 election. That year the Afrikaner National Party won the elections.
The only reason anyone is interested in that 1948 South African election today is because the new National Party government set up the apartheid system.
The Afrikaners have ruled South Africa since 1948. Then respectable conservatives took over the National Party. They told South African whites that black rule would be just great and all those alarmists were silly.
So the Afrikaners voted to trust their respectable conservative leaders. Everything the alarmists said about black rule has come true, and then some.
But like respectable conservatives in America, the Afrikaner government that sold out their people did very well out of it. They got prizes and jobs and all the rest.
The Boers asked to be betrayed, and they were. They have lost their country, and they have nowhere to go.
