More Thank 12,000 South African Whites Sign A Petition Asking Trump For Asylum

More than 12,000 people have signed a petition asking President Donald Trump to let white people in South Africa emigrate to the U.S. amid a vote by the country’s parliament favoring a motion that could see South Africa’s constitution amended to allow for land to be stripped from owners without any compensation.

The motion, which will still need the approval of the South African Parliament’s Constitutional Review Committee before an amendment can even be drafted, has once again stoked fears among the country’s white farmers of a violent and disastrous land redistribution akin to that which crippled Zimbabwe in the 2000s.

The online petition calls on Trump to “take the steps necessary to initiate an emergency immigration plan allowing white Boers to come to the United States.” Boer is the term used to describe South Africans of Dutch, German or Huguenot descent, who are also commonly referred to as Afrikaners.

The petition suggests that Trump should stop admitting refugees from Somalia and the Middle East, claiming they “cannot be properly vetted,” and allow white South Africans into the country instead.

A similar petition, calling on European Union President Jean-Claude Juncker, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister Theresa May to allow white South Africans into EU countries, has gained nearly 17,000 signatures.

The motion was put forward by the Economic Freedom Fighters and supported, but amended by the ruling African National Congress (ANC), with the party promising reforms that will address racial disparities in land ownership. Lawmakers voted overwhelmingly in favor of the move, with the motion passing 241-83.

It was a key part of recently elected President Cyril Ramaphosa’s platform. Ramaphosa, who has long supported Nelson Mandela’s vision for South Africa, took office last month, replacing former President Jacob Zuma.

More than two decades after white-minority rule came to an end in South Africa, most of the country’s profitable farming land is owned by white residents. A recent land audit conducted by Agri SA, a South African agricultural industry association, found that white farmers still control 73 percent of the country’s profitable farming land.

Agri SA expressed concerns over the parliament vote, saying that while it “fully understands the need for land reform and the frustration with the apparent slow process and is committed to orderly and sustainable land reform…politics and emotion dominated the debate.”

Dan Kriek, Agri SA’s president, warned that the rights of all property owners in South Africa were at stake. He said that amending the country’s constitution property clause would be a step backward into a past where the protection of property rights was not applied across the board.

Julius Malema, the leader of the EFF opposition party, which introduced the motion told parliament, told lawmakers “we must stop being cowards. We must stop working around the white minorities who are governed by the fear of the unknown when it comes to the question of land expropriation without compensation.”

He said land expropriation would end disparity caused by “criminals who stole our land.”

  1. Wow!
    So this is what happened back during the Colonial epochs.
    Take what you wanted, no one was there after you killed them, raped them checked the sharpness of your blades on them.
    Complete redistribution by (and to) those with the power for a penny on the dollar, if that.

    This was (and is I guess) some nasty stuff.
    Hopefully, this will never happen again, never.
    Terrible, just terrible.

    We do not need the likes of S. A. Whites with their Nazi practices and attitudes in the the USA.
    Too many Men died fighting them during WWII
    Let a few generations pass after the end of apartheid to let Mother Nature filter them out and put them to rest.

  2. Do you not know the history of S Africa? Back when it was settled no Blacks lived there, thats why it was colonized. They have winters there and Blacks didn’t like winters. Hence an empty land. So, then as White People built up the country Blacks all of a sudden want its wealth and are taking it by force. Let them have it and let the Whites who are discriminated against have a new home where they can live more at peace. Trouble is, Only White countries are being forced to take immigrants of color and they are going downhill which leaves no peaceful countries left for White People to settle and Prosper.

  3. “The likes of SA whites with their nazi practices and attitudes” – just how stupidly ignorant can you even be? Get all your information from mainstream news do you? Just like Rhodesia became Zimbabwe going from the breadbasket of Africa to the basketcase of Africa, with the blacks there far worse than they even were under apartheid, South Africa is facing exactly the same. In nearly every case, the productive “white run” farms are stolen and handed over to blacks, who run them into the ground and not only fail to feed anyone else but then fail to feed themselves as well. After which everyone just says it’s the “white peoples fault” when it’s black rule that made it the murder and rape capital of the world. Meanwhile literal torture and murder against whites isn’t even investigated as crimes most of the time no matter how horrific. Most recently I heard of an 85 year old grandmother tortured for three days with burning hot irons and raped dozens of times and nobody cares or is ever prosecuted. Meanwhile all sorts of delusional nonsense was peddled about Nelson Mandela, the terrorist, and his wife who literally invented ‘necklacing’ and personally tortured many people, and these stores inflame hatred and paint targets that don’t even deserve it.

    Even the Chinese investors strategically moving in now have commented on how the blacks there inherited a whole working country with infrastructure and completely let it go to shit.

    If Trump is allowing any refugees at all he should be bringing Boers here – they would be self sufficient within a year, employing other Americans within 2-3 years i’d bet. Unlike all these useless people with hands endlessly outstretched never once able to do any work to help themself seemingly who then just vote democrat anyways.

    This should have a clear link to the petition for others who want to sign in favor of it.
