A Warning for Americans: A Message from a South African
By Robbie Noel - Posted: 03.12.01
People used to say that South Africa was 20 years behind the rest of the
Western world. Television, for example, came late to South
Africa (but so did pornography and the gay* rights movement).
Today, however, South Africa may be the grim model of the future Western
world, for events in America reveals trends chillingly similar to
those that destroyed our country.
America's structures are Western. Your Congress, your lobbying groups, your
free speech, and the way ordinary Americans either get
involved or ignore politics are peculiarly Western, not the way most of the
world operates. But the fact that only about a third of
Americans deem it important to vote is horrifying in light of how close you
are to losing your Western character.
Writing letters to the press, manning stands at county fairs, hosting
fund-raising dinners, attending rallies, setting up conferences,
writing your Congressman -- that is what you know, and what you are
comfortable with. Those are the political methods you've created
for yourselves to keep your country on track and to ensure political
But woe to you if -- or more likely, when -- the rules change. White
Americans may soon find themselves unable or unwilling to stand up
to challenge the new political methods that will be the inevitable result
of the ethnic metamorphosis now taking place in America. Unable
to cope with the new rules of the game -- violence, mob riots, intimidation
through accusations of racism, demands for proportionality
based on racial numbers, and all the other social and political weapons
used by the have-nots to bludgeon treasure and power from the
haves -- Americans, like others before them, will no doubt cave in. They
will compromise away their independence and ultimately their
way of life.
That is exactly what happened in South Africa. I know, because I was there
and I saw it happen.
Faced with revolution in the streets, strikes, civil unrest and the sheer
terror and murder practiced by Nelson Mandela's African National
Congress (ANC), the white government simply capitulated in order to achieve
"peace." Westerners need peace. They need order and
stability. They are builders and planners. But what we got was peace of the
grave for our society.
The Third World is different -- different peoples with different pasts and
different cultures. Yet Westerners continue to mistake the
psychology of the Third World and its peoples. Sierra Leone and Zimbabwe
are perfect examples of those mistakes. Sierra Leone is in
perpetual civil war, and Zimbabwe -- once thriving, stable Rhodesia -- is
looting the very people (the white men) who feed the country.
Yet Westerners do not admit that the same kind of savagery could come to
America when enough immigrants of the right type assert
themselves. The fact is, Americans are sitting ducks for Third World
exploitation of the Western conscience of compassion.
Those in the West who forced South Africa to surrender to the ANC and its
leaders did not consider Africa to be the dangerous, corrupt,
and savage place it is now in Zimbabwe and South Africa. Those Western
politicians now have a similar problem on their own doorsteps:
the demand for power and treasure from the non-Western peoples inside the
It is already too late for South Africa, but not for America if enough
people strengthen their spine and take on the race terrorists, the
armies of the "politically correct" and, most dangerous of all, the craven
politicians who believe "compassionate conservatism" will buy
them a few more votes, a few more days of peace.
White South Africans, you should remember, have been in that part of Africa
for the same amount of time whites have inhabited North
America; yet ultimately South Africans voted for their own suicide. We are
not so very different from you.
We lost our country through skillful propaganda, pressure from abroad (not
least from the U.S.A.), unrelenting charges of "oppression"
and "racism," and the shrewd assessment by African tyrants that the white
man has many Achilles' heels, the most significant of which
are his compassion, his belief in the "equality of man," and his "love your
neighbor" philosophy --
none of which are part of the Third World's history.
The mainline churches played a big role in the demise of Western influence
throughout Africa, too; especially in South Africa. Today's
tyrants were yesterday's mission-school protégés. Many dictators in Africa
were men of the cloth. They knew their clerical collars would
deflect criticism and obfuscate their real aims, which had nothing whatever
to do with the "brotherhood of man."
Other tyrants, like the infamous Idi Amin, were trained and schooled by the
whites themselves, at Oxford, Cambridge, and Harvard. After
receiving the best from the West, they unleashed a resentful bloodlust
against their benefactors.
From what I have seen and read thus far, I fear Americans will capitulate
just as we did. Americans are, generally, a soft lot. They don't
want to quarrel or obstruct the claims of those who believe they were
wronged. They like peace and quiet, and they want to compromise
and be nice.
A television program aired in South Africa showed a town meeting in
Southern California where people met to complain about falling
standards in the schools. Whites who politely spoke at the meeting clearly
resented the influx of Mexican immigrants into their
community. When a handful of Chicanos at the back of the hall shouted and
waved their hands at them, the whites simply shrunk back
into their seats rather than tell the noisemakers to shut up. They didn't
want to quarrel.
In America, the courts are still the final arbiters of society's laws. But
what will happen when your future majority refuses to abide by
court rulings -- as in Zimbabwe? What will happen when the courts are
filled with their people, or their sympathizers? In California,
Proposition 187 has already been overturned.
What will you do when the future nonwhite majority decides to change the
names of streets and cities? What will you do when they no
longer want to use money that carries the portraits of old, dead white
"racists" and slave owners? Will you cave in, like you did on flying
the Confederate flag? What about the national anthem? Your official
Don't laugh. When the "majority" took over in South Africa, the first
targets were our national symbols.
In another generation, America may well face what Africa is now
experiencing -- invasions of private land by the "have-nots;" the decline
in health care quality; roads and buildings in disrepair; the banishment of
your history from the education of the young; the
revolutionization of your justice system.
In South Africa today, only 9 percent of murders end up in jail. Court
dockets are regularly purchased and simply disappear. Magistrates
can be bribed as can the prison authorities, making escapes commonplace.
Vehicle and airplane licenses are regularly purchased, and
forged school and university certificates are routine.
What would you think of the ritual slaughter of animals in your neighbor's
backyard? How do you clean up the blood and entrails that
litter your suburban streets? How do you feel about the practice of
witchcraft, in which the parts of young girls and boys are needed for
"medicinal" purposes? How do you react to the burning of witches?
Don't laugh. All that is quite common in South Africa today.
Don't imagine that government officials caught with their fingers in the
till will be punished. Excuses -- like the need to overcome
generations of white racism -- will be found to exonerate the guilty.
In fact, known criminals will be voted into office because of a racial
solidarity among the majority that doesn't exist among the whites.
When Ian Smith of the old Rhodesia tried to stand up to the world, white
South African politicians were among the Westerners pressuring
him to surrender.
When Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe murders his political opponents, ignores
unfavorable court decisions, terrorizes the population and
siphons off millions from the state treasury for himself and his friend,
South Africa's new President Thabo Mbeki holds his hand and
declares his support. That just happened a few weeks ago.
Your tax dollars will go to those who don't earn and don't pay. In South
Africa, organizations that used to have access to state funds
such as old age homes, the arts, and veterans' services, are simply
What will happen is that Western structures in America will be either
destroyed from without, or transformed from within, used to suit the
goals of the new rulers. And they will reign either through terror, as in
Zimbabwe today, or exert other corrupt pressures to obtain, or
buy votes. Once power is in the hands of aliens, don't expect loyalty or
devotion to principle from those whose jobs are at stake. One of
the most surprising and tragic components of the disaster in South Africa
is how many previously anti-ANC whites simply moved to the
Once you lose social, cultural, and political dominance, there is no
getting it back again.
Unfortunately, your habits and values work against you. You cannot fight
terror and street mobs with letters to your Congressmen. You
cannot fight accusations of racism with prayer meetings. You cannot appeal
to the goodness of your fellow man when the fellow man
despises you for your weakness and hacks off the arms and legs of his
To survive, Americans must never lose the power they now enjoy to people
from alien cultures. Above all, don't put yourselves to the

Millions around the world want your good life. But make no mistake: They
care not for the high-minded ideals of Jefferson and
Washington, and your Constitution. What they want are your possessions,
your power, and your status.
And they already know that their allies among you, the "human rights
activists," the skillful lawyers and the left-wing politicians will fight
for them, and not for you. They will exploit your compassion and your
Christian charity, and your good will.
They have studied you, Mr. and Mrs. America, and they know your weaknesses
