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 
other side. 

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 
political opponents. 
To survive, Americans must never lose the power they now enjoy to people 
from alien cultures. Above all, don't put yourselves to the 
test of fighting only when your backs are against the wall. You will 
probably fail. 

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 
They know what to do. Do you? 

"When the Cambrian measures were forming, they promised perpetual peace, 
They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would 
But when we disarmed they sold us and delivered us bound to our foe, 
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: 'Stick to the Devil you know.'
