This RWC...flip the switch on Springbok Rugby

By Mike Smith

29th of August 2015

I had to laugh when I saw that former Springbok coach Pieter de Villiers attended the burning of the Bok jersey in an anti-white protest that there were too many whites in the Springbok team.

I fully agree. Burn the Bok jersey. I hate that piece of ANC trash it has become. The Springboks are chosen not on merit, but on the colour of their skins. They are forced to field blacks who are third or fifth best in their position in the country and whites who are the best in their positions are discriminated against. That means that the Springboks can NEVER again play with their strongest team. They will forever be playing with a handicap.

What an insult that must be to overseas teams like the All Blacks or the Wallabies knowing you are not facing the best from South Africa, but a mediocre Springbok C team. If I was the All Blacks I would refuse to play them. It makes a mockery of Rugby and the William Web Ellis trophy. How can you claim to be the Rugby world champions when you haven’t faced the full might of a proper Springbok team? How can you feel that you deserved that trophy when you know you played against the third best South Africa had to offer?

That is why I stopped watching the Springboks a long time ago. It is a farce. I refuse to support them as long as they have quota players.

Three weeks from now the Rugby World Cup will start in England. I won’t watch them on the TV. I won’t watch them in the pub. To me they are dead. I have flipped the switch on the Springboks.

There are far better sports than Rugby. When the RWC is on, you know where you can find me

Mmusi Maimane: Cry Baby of the Month



By Mike Smith

28th of August 2015

Adressing members of the Democratic Alliance Students Organisation (DASO) at University of Cape Town (UCT), the lying bastard and DA leader Mmusi Maimane told the youngsters:

“The legacy of segregation is still alive. If you are black in South Africa, there is far less a chance of you getting into a tertiary institution like this than for a white South African.”

It is obvious that he has not heard of UCT’s racist policies and racist admission quotas that basically excludes whites from studying medicine there.

UCT urged to scrap race criteria

This is what the Sunday Times wrote:

“To stand a realistic chance to study for the MBChB degree at Cape Town, white pupils must get at least 90% in five matric subjects, 80% in the sixth and 80% in a national benchmark test that measures students' proficiency in academic literacy and maths.

“Indian pupils need at least 90% in four subjects, 80% in two subjects and 80% in the benchmark test. Coloured pupils need 80% in four subjects, 70% in two and at least 53% in the benchmark test to be considered for "probable admission".

“African pupils, on the other hand, who get 70%-79% in six subjects and at least 50% in the benchmark test stand a good chance of securing a place.”

Then this hypocrite they call “The future president of South Africa” went further:

“People who discriminate - in my humble opinion - should be in jail, not in (sic) campus,” he said.

Exactly! I fully agree! Put the whole UCT council and management in prison and when you are finished there, put the entire ANC in prison and when you are finished then jump into prison yourself you idiotic moron.

But that is not why he deserved the “Cry Baby of the Month Award”

He recalled a recent, minor car accident involving him and a white, female driver. Having caused the accident, Maimane said he approached the other driver sheepishly, wanting to apologise. However, according to the man the audience called the future president, the female driver began shouting at him angrily, speaking to him as if he were sub-human.

“I walked away feeling so, so inhumane…so inferior.”

Aaaah shame…poor Maimane…

Apartheid’s legacy still alive: Maimane

How can the public respect Police like this?


By Mike Smith

26nd of August 2015

According to the useless ANC regime we have a “negative perception” about our safety. And therefore we have a "negative perception" of the police.

I kid you not, this is what they call 18,000 murders (officially) and 150,000 rapes (officially) a year. This is what they call the brutal assault, torture and murder of 4000 white farmers on their watch since 1994. It is all just a “negative perception”.

They want an aggressive media campaign against this “negative perception” of the police which they say was created by the media.

Now I must admit that I have never in my life seen a more biased, politically correct and liberal media than what we have in SA. Biased towards the regime that is and biased towards blacks.

Whenever whites complain about crime, the media calls them "racists". Pictures accompanying crime reports depict whites as the criminals and blacks as the victims when in fact it is the other way around. The small amount of crime of whites against blacks are so-called ”racist hate crimes”, but the far worse other way around black on white crime is, “just ordinary crime”. It is an orchestrated media psyops the media wages against white South Africans.

Nevertheless, the police are so corrupt, and violent that the public has lost all respect for it. They are involved in bank robberies, cash in transit robberies, extortions, bribes and untold brutality against civilians…and then complain that 60 of them were killed this year so far.

But why are they being killed? Let me show you…

Drunk cop in Pietermaritzburg
Take a look at this idiot, photographed by a white member of the public, passed out behind his steering wheel at 08:00 am with a bottle of Savannah between his legs. This is no "It is dry , but you can drink it" joke. Drunk cop caught napping

Read how two other men approached the vehicle and began slapping the policeman to wake him up. The man who took the picture said: “I thought they were going to beat him to death. The police officer only woke up when one of the men took the Savannah from between his legs and splashed it on his face.”

The policeman shortly afterwards started the vehicle and drove off. One of the men threw the bottle away.

Democratic Alliance MP Dianne Kohler Barnard said that the incident was horrendous.

“This police officer had a firearm on his hip. Anyone could have reached in and grabbed it. This officer must face a major disciplinary hearing. He is in charge of a firearm; he is in charge of you and me. Can you imagine if he had had to pull a citizen over, what could have happened?” she said.

Ward 36 councillor for the area, Vic Winterbach, said that a tragedy could have taken place with lives being lost.

“This is very concerning. A dangerous weapon in the hands of a drunken person. Police need to be setting the example. I’ve noticed officials breaking smaller bylaws like throwing plastic out of vehicles, but no matter how small the offence all police should uphold the law,” he said.

Founder and director of South Africans Against Drunk Driving (SADD), Caro Smit, said: “Another issue is that police officers are not good at following the rules of the road. We recently did a survey in Pietermaritzburg and found that four percent of police officers wear seat belts and if they do not follow the rules of the road, why should anyone else.”

Exactly! And these are not isolated incidents either:

  • In January 2013, Russell George of Prestbury arrested an alleged drunk police officer and locked him up in the back of his police van after watching him drive recklessly through the streets of Pietermaritzburg.

  • In March this year, a video of a policeman allegedly drunk behind the wheel went viral on social media. The man who filmed the video, Phil Tomlinson, questioned the officer on the side of the road in Durban, before the officer sped off.

You see, these guys think they are above the law. They drive drunk. They drive without seatbelts on. They throw their shit out of the windows…then they wonder why people don’t have respect for them.

But the most amazing part is that the useless ANC regime, instead of sorting out their equally useless goons, are going after the media who reports upon them.

But that is still nothing.

Black cop sodomising unconscious white man with his hand
A video emerged of black cops assaulting two young white guys for no apparent reason apart from the fact that they were alone and white. They slammed the one guys head into the tarmac a few times, kicked and punched him and then anally searched him on the ground, turned him on his back and then pulled his pants further down and fondled his private parts.

I would like a psychologist to explain this sick, perverted and barbaric behavior to me. We saw the same thing when Eugene Terreblanche was hacked to death in his sleep. The bastards also pulled his pants down and exposed his genitalia. Is this some kind of penis envy towards whites or is it an act of humiliation out of pure and unadulterated HATRED of whites?

Black cop sexually assaulting unconscious white man
Where is the Main Stream Media now with their outcries of “Racism”?? They don’t even report on it. Nevertheless this is the disgusting scum that we should have respect for? They want us to have sympathy with them when 60 of them get killed? I am trying really hard, but I fail to find as much as one ounce of sympathy for these bastards. In fact I spit on them. Like I always say, they know where they can go and find “sympathy”…in the dictionary. Somewhere between “shit” and “Syphilis”.

I hope these two white guys sue the living crap out of the police and that these bastards are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Fortunately the one had the wherewithal to carry a cell-phone/camera and filmed it all. These are exactly the kind of videos we should expose. Every time these bastards use this kind of brutality, they should be filmed and exposed. It converts another 100 liberals. It brings us ever closer to uniting against these Pigs.

We should all have dash cams and cameras inside the vehicle. Film the bastards when you get pulled over. Film them when they ask you for a bribe. Take their names and numbers. Write down or film their vehicle registration numbers. Sue them! Show them we will not take their corruption and criminal behavior.

The day is going to come that we will come face to face with these bastards. Then it is going to take a lot of discipline to hold ourselves back, especially when they turn violent. The blacks had their Sharpeville. Just show a few blacks the image of Hector Peterson and see what happens. It united them back then and is still uniting them now. We are going to have to face our Sharpville too. It will be the final nail in the coffin of the ANC and their goons, because it will unite us once and for all.



Watch; Shocking footage of police brutality in Fourways. Warning: extremely graphic images

The two cops caught shoplifting
But don’t think these are just black cops. Two female cops (one white, one coloured) were caught shoplifting a cellphone headset and USB modem at the Cradlestone Mall in Krugersdorp.

“F@#k you black people. You are always making a noise. I am coming back for you, I will get you,” the constable shouted at the staff who caught her.

Staff tell of how cops tried to bribe them

The best part for me was when the black shop assistant Danisile Xulu expressed her disgust in the police women, “When we realised they were stealing we weren’t scared of them anymore. It is disgusting how they are taking advantage of their uniforms,” she concluded.

You see? Once the public realized that these bastards were nothing but common criminals, they lost all respect for them and lost all their fear and that is what we want, because fear is the only power they have over us. When you lose your respect and your fear, you start to disobey and do not co-operate anymore. THAT is the start of the revolution.

Why do people obey dictators?

By Mike Smith

25th of August 2015

Gene Sharp said in his book “From dictatorship to democracy” that overcoming the people’s fear and habit of obedience is a necessary prerequisite to destroy the dictatorship.Which brings us to the question…

Why do people obey dictators?

“With an understanding why people obey, we can more effectively promote collective disobedience to unjust laws. Also, understanding why people obey provides a powerful rebuttal to the belief that “obedience is natural.” Human beings are not genetically predisposed to obedience, but rather to living in communities, in a society in which good reasons are available for voluntary compliance with laws and conventions. But when compliance is forced and obedience is demanded by a government through threats and sanctions rather than by popular consent, obedience becomes less stable.“ – Non-violent struggle – 50 crucial points, pg36.

There is no one reason why people obey dictatorships rather a complex mixture of reasons. Make no mistake, the dictator knows all of them intimately and apply or make use of them religiously. His very survival depends on them. Habbit

To obey is not natural. As children we get taught and conditioned to obey those bigger than us, older than us and those having more authority than us. We obey our parents, our teachers, our lecturers, road signs, the police, etc. and so we also learn to obey the government, even when it turns bad.

Roles

A few years ago I wrote an article on the famous Zimbardo prison experiment and how people fall into and adapt to their roles in society. Those who were the “prison guards” became increasingly brutal and those who were the “prisoners” more subservient.

This leads to a condition called ”Learned helplessness” where people simply accept their fate, because they see no way out even when one is staring them straight in the face. I called it a “resistance to resistance”.

Just following orders

In 1961Prof Stanley Milgram of Yale University started a series of experimenets that became known collectively as The Milgram experiment

He later published his findings in a book called, Obedience to authority: An experimental view,1974

The Milgram experiment showed the surprising ease with which ordinary persons can be commanded to act destructively against an innocent individual by a legitimate authority. People feel absolved from guilt when ordered by an authority.

The instinct to bond with a strong leader

Dictators exploit a well-known instinct for most people to seek protection from a strong leader, according to Alice LoCicero, a Cambridge, Mass.-based clinical psychologist and researcher on leadership and terrorism.

"Our behavior is still affected by what went on thousands of years ago," LoCicero said. "It's easier to understand why it's adaptive and common for people to bond to powerful leaders. In Darwinian evolution, the people who bonded with the leader survived. That instinct got passed along."

LoCicero has studied terrorist leadership and victims of terrorism from all five continents. She says that in some cultures, it's important to show respect to leaders, whether it's North Korea's Kim family of dictators or just the local schoolteacher.

We also saw this phenomonen in Serbia during the Kosovo war where Nato rained down bombs from March 24, 1999 to June 10, 1999 trying to destroy the Serbian military machine. All it achieved in doing was strengthening support for Serbian dictator Milosevic. It reached an all time high.

Sedja Popovic mentions how it was the worst time for the Otpor! resistance movement who were about to depose Milosevic in a non-violent revolution. Even some of Otpor’s own members started instinctively cheering for Milosevic.

The “Personality Cult”

Most of the time the dictator is actually not strong at all, but will try to “appear strong” and will create a “Cult of personality” through careful control of information and propaganda.

Most dictators are actually insecure, paranoid and manipulating bullies and in fact weaklings.

This becomes very clear once they lose their power and are dethroned. Suddenly they break down and appear extremely weak. Examples are dictators Ferdinand Marcos, Erich Honecker and the former red terror Stasi Chief Erich Mielke who turned into bumbling idiot and were laughed out in the “Volkskamer” (people’s chamber) when he insisted “…But, but I love you. I love all people…” when it came out how they built the Berlin Wall and slaughtered people who tried to escape it.

More recently the ridiculous 5ft3 Kim Jong Il, who was a pudgy, vain, top nerd who bouffed up his hair to gain another inch or two built his cult of personality to create an idealized, heroic, and at times, worshipful image who, amongst other things, claimed to be a brilliant inventor as well as a super golfer who shot 38 under par his first time playing golf. His biggest legacy was the 1-2 million people he starved to death whilst enjoying a lavish lifestyle.

His son 32yo Kim Jong Un was described by his Swiss classmates as a shy child who was awkward with girls and indifferent to political issues. He likese basketball, computer games and during NBA star Dennis Rodman’s visit to the dictator Ryan Duffy of Vice Media observed that "the leader was 'socially awkward' and didn't make eye contact when shaking hands".

The 5ft 6in Nicolae Ceausescu gave himself such titles as "Conducător" ("Leader") and "Geniul din Carpați" ("The Genius of the Carpathians") and had a king-like scepter made for himself. Ceausescu’s birthday (26th of January) was the most important day of the year and everyone had to put up a happy face or be punished.

For years, nearly all official photographs of him showed him in his late 40s. Romanian state television was under strict orders to portray him in the best possible light, but who can forget his pathetic looking face at the attempted speeches on the eve of his overthrow when the crowd started booing and heckling him.

And who can forget the surprised face of Sadam Husein when he was dragged from the hole in the ground where he was hiding…His mug said, “Game Over”.

The last moments of strongman Muamar Al Gaddafi crying like a baby when he was dragged from the filthy drain pipe he was hiding in is another example of how truly weak these dictators really are.

In reality the dictator is not strong. He only looks strong until the last ten minutes. He is not installed by God. He might think he is a god but in fact he is Odin’s Mickey Mouse and Allah’s Daffy Duck.

“You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home, all the more powerful because forbidden, terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.” ― Winston S. Churchill, Blood, Sweat and Tears

Distractions - Bread and circus

Since the times of the Romans, dictators have used this technique.

Panem et Circenses comes from Roman poet Juvenal's metaphor for people voluntarily (or democratically) giving up civic responsibility for a reasonably stable status quo.

When the people are well-fed and having fun, they will be too contented or lazy to protest against those in charge (they may even start to thank, adore, and praise those in charge), turning them into gullible lemmings and apathetic citizens who will leave the “Powers That Be” free to do as they please.

Sports such as football, Rugby, Olympic Games, etc serve as distractions to lead people away from political realities, misrule and corruption.

The GDR used the so called FKK (Freikörperkultur) or nudism as bread and circus. Drugs and alcohol can also be used like in USSR, GDR and China.

When a brave leader stands up to tell or show the people what is really going on, he is branded as a troublemaker out to ruin their (relatively) happy life — or worse, submerge them in fire and brimstone. When you are the only sane person, to others, you look like the only insane person.

Lies, propaganda and the blurring of the distinctions between Dystopia and Utopia

Reality is turned upside down. The regime will tell lies and half truths to create the impression that the current status quo they created is the best the country has ever seen or will ever see. The dictator is God and the totalitarian state is heaven. Successful countries in Europe or the West are made out as “corrupt”, “materialistic” or “rotten”.

This form of indoctrination usually starts early from kindergarten age and carried out throughout school and university so that sheeple genuinely believes this junk.

The regime also makes use of “Brown envelope journalism” where reporters are paid to sing praises of the dictatorship. In South Africa 2010, journalists Ashley Smith and Joseph Aranes of the Cape Argus were implicated in a scandal to further ANC Premier Ebrahim Rasool’s agenda, but the rabbit hole went deeper when in 2012, ANC spindoctor Chris Vick a former journalist who writes a column in Business Day – has riled editors with his accusations of widespread unethical behaviour by South African journalists. These include that some reporters have their stories written for them by public relations practitioners like him.

SA journalism plagued by payola

Jacob Zuma: "You have less rights,
because you are a minority"
Misapplied Democracy and the Tyranny of the Majority

“For the minority, what else is democracy than dictatorship?” – Anna Jae

The minority trapped in a “democracy” has no voice and is forced to accept whatever the majority decides no matter how bad those decisions are.

The minority then feels that the dictatorship is justified, because the majority supports it. So they just go along with the flow and accept the status quo.

The dictatorship’s friendship with big powers

The people feel that the dictatorship should be tolerated, because of the support from foreign nations or corporations.

In the case of South Africa you have BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and SA) in a partnership of emerging economies representing over three billion people. Almost half of the world’s population. No wonder South Africans feel powerless.

In SA there is also the perception that the ANC is supported by mining and industrial giants such as De Beers/Anglo American, Lonmin, Consolidated Goldfields and others.

As we will see, these associations are not guaranteed for the dictatorship to remain in power and can quickly change sides.

Fear

There are three ways the dictator uses fear. First there is the fear of him and his regime. Second there is the fear of someone or something else. Thirdly there is the fear of ourselves.

Fear as the tool of the “Saviour” dictator

All dictatorships make use of fear to rule and present themselves as the only saviours. Fear is not only the fear of “sanctions” (punishments) from the dictator but also fear from an imagined, manufactured or real “enemy”…I call it “creating and hating the scapegoat.”

Dictators long ago found that it is easier to unite people in common hatred than in common love. This fear keeps the society off balance and collectively paranoid.

People who are resisting the dictatorship are called all sorts of names and vilified. Hitler would call his opponents “Communists” and “Jews” whether they were or not.

Stalin would call opponents “Fascists” and “Anti-revolutionaries”. In general the Marxist opponents are called the “Bourgeoisie”.

In Iran the scapegoat is called the “Infidel”, “Zionists”, “Imperial war-mongers”, etc. Israel is known as “That Zionist State”.

P.W. Botha called his opponents the “Rooi gevaar” (Red Threat) and the “Swart gevaar” (Black Threat).

In South Africa under the Marxist ANC “fascists” made way for “racists” and the “Bourgeoisie” are the whites, the “Colonial Capitalists” who refuse to share.

The dictator presents himself as God or ordained by God to rule forever; His opponents are vilified as demons or the Devil. The dictator wants people to believe that he is their only salvation; The Saviour. The Messiah.

In Iraq Saddam Hussein was so convinced of his God ordained destiny to rule forever that he refused to accept that he would be overthrown in April 2003 even with American tanks rolling into Baghdad.

In South Africa the Dictator Jacob Zuma said that the ANC will rule until Jesus comes.

What is “The fear of sanctions”?

In short, “sanctions” are “punishments” and can be anything from being police beatings and torture, imprisonment, losing one’s job to losing family, friends, livelihood, etc. It can also be threats, coercion or even assassinations.

An animal normally only fears immediate threats, but people can imagine threats in the future.

Therefore, the purpose of sanctions is not so much as to punish the resisters, but to make examples of them so that the rest of the people are deterred from resisting in future as well.

The dictator uses the “carrot and stick” technique. Those who resist can expect the harshest punishment, those who obey are rewarded. We will see that this fear of sanctions is one of the most important to overcome.

Atomisation and the fear within

There is another very important fear that keep people obeying the regime and that is the fear of failure. The fear that “I am not good enough” to do anything. “I am alone.”

This “isolation of the individual is called “atomization”.

The control of information and dissent

In dictatorships like the East German GDR, Iraq and North Korea, dictators tightly control the flow of information and therefore control dissent. There's such total control that four people talking together can be seen as a conspiracy.

The media and state broadcasters are either directly controlled by the dictatorship or exercises self censorship out of fear of sanctions. Certain films are banned, certain music is banned.

Internet and social media is censored, regulated and/or spied on. Telephones tapped and books disappear from libraries.

“When governments try to tightly control the flow of information – Including information on the internet – They only show a fundamental misunderstanding of the Information Age. What governments and others who want to control information don’t understand is this – they are no longer in control of the information. Power is moving into the hands of individuals and away from the exclusive control of governments and corporations.” - Dr. Gerald L. Kovacich

The Armed forces and a climate of fear

The dictatorship uses the armed forces (police and military) to openly display weapons on street or carry out military parades in order to install a general climate of fear and hopelessness amongst the population.

The secret police creates a climate of distrust amongst the people so that even family members are too scared to voice dissenting opinions.

Summary

So we see that it is in the dictator’s best interest to keep the people atomised, keep them in fear and keep them from disobeying. He will use everything from threats, rewards, armed forces, propaganda, lies and distractions to stay in power.

He knows…If the people overcome their fear of him, unite and start disobeying him, he is in deep, deep trouble. In the next edition we will look at how to achieve that.

The whole country is uniting against Zuma



"A prince need trouble little about conspiracies when the people are well disposed, but when they are hostile and hold him in hatred, then he must fear everything and everybody." – Niccolò Machiavelli, The Prince, chapter XIX

By Mike Smith

23nd of August 2015

If you were wondering if a revolt against the ANC’s totalitarian junta is the right thing to do, have no doubt.

It is not just us who want Zuma gone. Everyone, from the very poor blacks in the townships of Port Elizabeth, the miners of Marikana right up to the top of the ANC want Zuma gone. Seems like a palace revolution is brewing inside the ANC.

More top ANC men want Zuma gone

"More top ANC leaders have turned against President Jacob Zuma as the battle for the presidency intensifies ahead of the party's Mangaung conference in December."

"Former top cop Bheki Cele has emerged as a key lobbyist for the "Anyone But Zuma" grouping in KwaZulu-Natal. ANC stalwart and former cabinet minister Pallo Jordan this week added his voice to those calling for change in the party."

At a remembrance of the Marikana Massacre three years ago, only the DA and the EFF turned up at Wonderkop. There was no trace of the government or the scared ANC. DA leader Mmusi Maimane told the workers:Zuma’s place is in jail

"President Jacob Zuma's place is in jail; he should pay back the money used to upgrade his home. The widows of our brothers who were killed have suffered enough and we will fight that they get compensated," he said.

"This ANC government is protecting one person - President Zuma - instead of protecting the people of South Africa."

It is clear from this article in the Sunday Times that South Africans are of all walks and life are now openly talking about withholding taxes and even open revolution.

Why pay taxes to thieves?

“The government admits we lose R30-billion a year to corruption, but our finance minister wants to increase taxes on an already overtaxed middle class to raise R27-billion over the next two years.”

“It is time for a middle class revolution.” – says fed up Dave Harris, Craighall Park

“Arrest the thieves and taxes will be safe.” -  Jack, by e-mail

I fully agree that Zuma should go, but I disagree with Beke Cele on “Anyone but Zuma”.

Eight years ago I wrote an article for SA Sucks called It was just time for a change

I can still remember how euphoric the whites were back then that Thabo Mbeki was replaced by Zuma and the folly of “just wanting a change.”…what if that change was worse? Nevertheless, prominent Afrikaners like  Steve Hofmeyer and Dan Roodt went to braai with Zuma. Dr. Johann Wingard (former chairman of the Volkstaat council) publicly attacked me on “Global Politician” and sang the praises of Zuma and his “University of Robben Island Education”. What an utter fool he must feel today. You can read his drivel here

Nevertheless, in my article I made a list of predictions. Half came true under Zuma so far, the other half is just a matter of time. I ended it with the words, “Bad just got worse!”

I was right. Zuma turned out to be ten times worse than Thabo Mbeki. So will Kgalema Motlanthe, a former MK terrorist who spent ten years on Robben Island be worse than Zuma. So will Cyril Ramaphosa, former trade unionist and committed Socialist be ten times worse than Zuma.

People should not get false hope when Zuma falls. Changing the top of the ANC will not make the ANC better. The entire useless ANC terrorist regime should go. They should be tried in a court of law and thrown in jail for all the Murder, rape, theft, corruption and mismanagement they have subjected South Africans to.

Useless ANC getting their educational priorities straight

By Mike Smith

No money for road signs? We'll see...

By Mike Smith

22nd of August 2015

I wonder if there is anything they won’t steal…

Corrupt ANC stealing road sign money


Sarah Baartman district
Of the R4.7 million awarded to the racist BBBEE company Rainbow Civils only R150,000 was allocated to the entire Sarah Baartman District which includes Port Elizabeth…and Ward 30…where the ANC has just recently lost a previous stronghold to the UDM in a humiliating by election.

UDM win reduces ANC majority in Nelson Mandela Bay council

In typical loser fashion the freeloading DA leader in the Eastern Cape, Athol Trollip, who only managed to get 9% of the vote, said that the election result will send a shockwave through the ANC

Makes one think of the elephant and the mouse who walked across a wooden bridge and when they got to the other side the mouse said, "Man we really had that bridge rocking and swaying didn't we?"

Nevertheless, how do we get the ANC to spend more money on road signs? I have a few ideas…By the time we are finished them, they will be bankrupt and there will be no more money to steal. They will have to change all the signs on posts and clean all the signs off the roads in the whole country. If they have enough personnel and time to do it all, is another question. Remember we want to overload the system and bring it down.

And while we are at it, we can change all the road signs and town names back to what they were. It is our tax money that paid for it all anyway. Stuff them. Every act of defiance is a mini revolution. We will take our country back…even if it is one road at a time.

In hoc signo vinces!

The structure of the resistance campaign

By Mike Smith

20th of August 2015

To most people it always seems as if a revolution was simple. As if people fed up with the oppressive regime spontaneously went onto the streets one day and deposed the dictator.

This perception is however, wrong and it is the same mistake the Syrians made in 2011.

When the Tunisians staged the Jasmine Revolution on the 17th of December 2010, it started the “Arab Spring”.

Within less than a month, dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali was deposed and fled with his wife to Saudi Arabia. It looked so easy.

Because of fierce football rivalry between Tunisians and Egyptians, the Egyptians did not want to be outdone so started their revolution on the 25th of January 2011 and 18 days later, Dictator Hosni Mubarak was deposed.

Fuelled by the success of the seemingly easy manner the Tunisian and Egyptian revolts went, the Syrians thought they could simply do the same, i.e. go on the streets with no plan, protest a bit, say “BOO” and Dictator Bashar al Assad would run away.

Needless to say, this ended up in a disaster. Almost five years later and Syria is gripped in a seemingly endless civil war with thousands dead.

What the Syrians forgot was that Mohamed Adel, leader of the Egyptian youth movement called “The April 6 Movement” and other pro democracy activists were trained by Srdja Popovic and other Otpor! members at CANVAS in Serbia three years prior to the revolt. Gene Sharp’s book, “From dictatorship to democracy” was translated into Arabic and freely circulated in Cairo.

The Egyptians structured and planned their campaign and educated people over two years before what we saw on television, namely masses of people on the streets.

Incidentally “The April 6 Movement” uses the same clenched fist symbol as us, the one from Otpor!

There is no leader

Forget about a “Messiah”  leader  like Jesus or Moses who led the Israelites to the Promised Land. There is not going to be one. There is not going to be a “General De la Rey” on his horse coming from the Western Transvaal to lead the Boers, as Afrikaans singer Bok van Blerk sings… And besides, you don’t want one.

A leader is a target. You don’t give a dictator a target you give him a dilemma. You suck him into a void and let him chase what is not there.

The dictatorship has an uncanny habit of going after leaders of organizations that oppose it. Having one strong leader is a weak link for the organisation. He can be arrested, kidnapped, bribed, coerced or assassinated and the organization can disintegrate. Even a good leader can sometimes take bad decisions, like General Piet Cronje at the Battle of Paardeberg where he surrendered with 4000 men, a tenth of the Boer army.

People need to unite around an idea, not a single leader. Our idea is "Our vision of tomorrow".

The dictator cannot arrest what is not there and how is he going to arrest an idea?

That does not mean the democracy movement is leaderless. What you need is “a network of leaders” in a cell structure. 200 cells of say 10 people each is a total of 2000 activists across the country that can train more and more activists and create split off cells.

All are operating independently from each other, using the same symbols and united around the same idea. If one person falls out there are hundreds more to take his/her place and the movement does not come to a halt, but carries on and grows. Each group executing their own little acts of defiance and mini-revolutions .

The cell group structure has another advantage. It creates competition. The one group always thinks it can outdo the other group in bravery and acts of defiance until critical mass is reached. That is when you go out onto the streets.

This structure is much more resilient, because the dictator cannot arrest everyone. The cell structure was also used by the ANC during Apartheid. Funny enough, many churches including the NG Kerk (Dutch Reform Church) use a Cell group structure for home churches so this is something quite familiar to many in SA.

A typical cell group is made up of 6-12 members with a leader. When the group grows bigger it splits into two, and those two into two, etc.

A group of viruses invading a body does not have a leader . Fleas on a dog does not have a leader, but their collective and constant biting will drive the dog insane, haemorrhage it and eventually kill it. It is what Robert Taber called The War of the Flea

Secrecy or openness?

Let’s face it…if the dictator wants to find out what the opposition is planning, it will. It is often impossible to keep the political police and intelligence agents from learning about intentions and plans.

Secrecy is not only rooted in fear, but contributes to fear which dampens the spirit of resistance. It leads to mistrust, suspicions and accusations often unjustified, within the movement, concerning who is an informer or agent for the regime and who is not.

In contrast, openness regarding intentions and plans will not only have the opposite effects, but will contribute to an image of fearlessness and that the resistance movement is in fact extremely powerful. It has nothing to hide. It is exercising its constitutional rights to peaceful assembly, demonstration, picket and petition (section 17 of the Bill of Rights), Freedom of expression (section 16), political rights (section 19), etc.

Having said that, there are significant aspects of resistance activities that may require secrecy. A thorough assessment of these aspects will be needed.

For instance, the editing, printing, and distribution of underground publications, the use of radio broadcasts from within the country, and the gathering of intelligence about the operations of the dictatorship are among the special limited types of activities where a high degree of secrecy will be required. We fear naught, but God.

The ANC: Up Shit Creek and no paddle

Lichtenburg Shit Creek
By Mike Smith

18th of August 2015

It just disgusting the levels the ANC drags the country down to. During the time of Apartheid they said that whites were keeping blacks down and in areas not fit for human habitation.

I tell you what…during Apartheid we never had rivers of shit flowing through the country. Now it is a common scene like recently in Jeffreys Bay and now in Lichtenburg in the North West province.

Aerial photos reveal extent of sewage crisis in North West

I love the way the newspaper says, “The cause of the problem is a faulty sewage plant.”

Horseshit! The cause of the problem is the faulty ANC government. For two years now they have been warned about the problem and did nothing. Now they don’t know what to do and don’t care either. They don’t care if the residents get e.coli, cholera, hepatitis, whatever…All they are interested in is “Da Munneys!”

As usual, the ANC says things are not that bad.

Maybe they are right. Shit is very useful.

You can smoke shit, buy shit, sell shit, lose shit, find shit, forget shit, and tell others to eat shit…like I do with the useless and incompetent ANC.

If the ANC actually knew their shit, this shit would not have happened, but it is because they are a bunch of cowardly chicken shits who can only throw shit at airports and statues and dip-shits who cannot tell the difference between peanut butter and shit that this disastrous shit has happened.

Now that they find themselves in deep shit and the shit has hit the fan they duck and are trying to cover it up with bullshit and want to convince us that we are all happy like pigs in shit…except the blacks of course, because we white shits have too much shit and the poor black shits do not have enough shit…and the liberal shit-for-brains believe all this weird shit.

Truth is that everything the ANC touches turns to shit with the result that the ordinary citizen goes bat shit and ape shit, but I don’t really give a shit, because I have told them so many times that you get what you vote for and if you vote for the ANC again…you will just get a different day, but the same old shit.

Non-violent resistance - Ghandi and the Salt march: A Case study



“The only tyrant I accept in this world is the 'still small voice' within me. And even though I have to face the prospect of being a minority of one, I humbly believe I have the courage to be in such a hopeless minority.” ― Mahatma Gandhi, The Essential Gandhi: An Anthology of His Writings on His Life, Work, and Ideas.


Ghandi and the Salt march
(From: The 33 Strategies of War, Robert Greene, 2006, Pg 420-423)

In December 1929 the group of Englishmen who governed India were feeling a little nervous. The Indian National Congress--the country's main independence movement--had just broken off talks over the proposal that Britain would gradually return autonomous rule to the subcontinent.

Instead the Congress was now calling for nothing less than immediate and total independence, and it had asked Mahatma Gandhi to lead a civil-disobedience campaign to initiate this struggle.

Gandhi, who had studied law in London years before, had invented a form of passive-resistant protest in 1906, while working as a barrister in South Africa.

In India in the early 1920s, he had led civil-disobedience campaigns against the British that had created quite a stir, had landed him in prison, and had made him the most revered man in the country.

For the British, dealing with him was never easy; despite his frail appearance, he was uncompromising and relentless.

Although Gandhi believed in and practiced a rigorous form of non-violence, the colonial officers of the British Raj were fearful: at a time when the English economy was weak, they imagined him organizing a boycott of British goods, not to mention mass demonstrations in the streets of India's cities, a police nightmare.

The man in charge of the Raj's strategy in combating the independence movement was the viceroy of India, Lord Edward Irwin. Although Irwin admired Gandhi personally, he had decided to respond to him rapidly and with force--he could not let the situation get out of hand. He waited anxiously to see what Gandhi would do.

The weeks went by, and finally, on March 2, Irwin received a letter from Gandhi--rather touching in its honesty--that revealed the details of the civil-disobedience campaign he was about to launch.

It was to be a protest against the salt tax. The British held a monopoly on India's production of salt, even though it could easily be gathered by anyone on the coast. They also levied a rather high tax on it. This was quite a burden for the poorest of the poor in India, for whom salt was their only condiment.

Gandhi planned to lead a march of his followers from his ashram near Bombay (present-day Mumbai) to the coastal town of Dandi, where he would gather sea salt left on the shore by the waves and encourage Indians everywhere to do the same. All this could be prevented, he wrote to Irwin, if the viceroy would immediately repeal the salt tax.

Irwin read this letter with a sense of relief. He imagined the sixty-year-old Gandhi, rather fragile and leaning on a bamboo cane, leading his ragtag followers from his ashram--fewer than eighty people-- on a two-hundred-mile march to the sea, where he would gather some salt from the sands.

Compared to what Irwin and his staff had been expecting, the protest seemed almost ludicrously small in scale. What was Gandhi thinking? Had he lost touch with reality? Even some members of the Indian National Congress were deeply disappointed by his choice of protest.

In any event, Irwin had to rethink his strategy. It simply would not do to harass or arrest this saintly old man and his followers (many of them women). That would look very bad. It would be better to leave him alone, avoiding the appearance of a heavy-handed response and letting the crisis play out and die down. In the end the ineffectiveness of this campaign would somewhat discredit Gandhi, breaking his spell over the Indian masses. The independence movement might fracture or at least lose some momentum, leaving England in a stronger position in the long run.

As Irwin watched Gandhi's preparations for the march, he became still more convinced that he had chosen the right strategy.

Gandhi was framing the event as almost religious in quality, like Lord Buddha's famous march to attain divine wisdom, or Lord Rama's retreat in the Ramayana. His language became increasingly apocalyptic: "We are entering upon a life-and-death struggle, a holy war."

This seemed to resonate with the poor, who began to flock to Gandhi's ashram to hear him speak. He called in film crews from all over the world to record the march, as if it were a momentous historical event.

Irwin himself was a religious man and saw himself as the representative of a God-fearing, civilized nation. It would redound to England's credit to be seen to leave this saintly man untouched on his procession to the sea.

Gandhi and his followers left their ashram on March 12, 1930. As the group passed from village to village, their ranks began to swell. With each passing day, Gandhi was bolder. He called on students throughout India to leave their studies and join him in the march. Thousands responded. Large crowds gathered along the way to see him pass; his speeches to them grew more and more inflammatory. He seemed to be trying to bait the English into arresting him.

On April 6 he led his followers into the sea to purify themselves, then collected some salt from the shore.

Word quickly spread throughout India that Gandhi had broken the salt law. Irwin followed these events with increasing alarm. It dawned on him that Gandhi had tricked him: instead of responding quickly and decisively to this seemingly innocent march to the sea, the viceroy had left Gandhi alone, allowing the march to gain momentum.

The religious symbolism that seemed so harmless had stirred the masses, and the salt issue had somehow become a lightning rod for disaffection with English policy.

Gandhi had shrewdly chosen an issue that the English would not recognize as threatening but that would resonate with Indians. Had Irwin responded by arresting Gandhi immediately, the whole thing might have died down. Now it was too late; to arrest him at this point would only add fuel to the fire. Yet to leave him alone would show weakness and cede him the initiative.

Meanwhile nonviolent demonstrations were breaking out in cities and villages all over India, and to respond to them with violence would only make the demonstrators more sympathetic to moderate Indians. Whatever Irwin did, it seemed, would make things worse. And so he fretted, held endless meetings, and did nothing.

In the days to come, the cause rippled outward. Thousands of Indians traveled to India's coasts to collect salt as Gandhi had. Large cities saw mass demonstrations in which this illegal salt was given away or sold at a minimal price. One form of nonviolent protest cascaded into another--a Congress-led boycott of British goods, for one.

Finally, on Irwin's orders, the British began to respond to the demonstrations with force. And on May 4 they arrested Gandhi and took him to prison, where he would stay for nine months without trial.

Gandhi's arrest sparked a conflagration of protest. On May 21 a group of 2,500 Indians marched peacefully on the government's Dharasana Salt Works, which was defended by armed Indian constables and British officers.

When the marchers advanced on the factory, they were struck down with steel-plated clubs.

Instructed in Gandhi's methods of nonviolence, the demonstrators made no attempt to defend themselves, simply submitting to the blows that rained down on them. Those who had not been hit continued to march until almost every last one had been clubbed.

It was a nauseating scene that got a great deal of play in the press. Similar incidents all over India helped to destroy the last sentimental attachment any Indians still had toward England.

To end the spiraling unrest, Irwin was finally forced to negotiate with Gandhi, and, on several issues, to give ground--an unprecedented event for an English imperialist viceroy.

Although the end of the Raj would take several years, the Salt March would prove to be the beginning of the end, and in 1947 the English finally left India without a fight.
