Apartheid's invissible corruption

By Mike Smith

6th of October 2015

Normally when you talk about corruption under Apartheid, liberals and blacks are quick to point out the “Information scandal” where Dr. Eschel Rhoodie and his PR team were being secretly funded from the defence budget. It cost the Prime Minister, the Information Minister and Rhoodie their jobs. However, these dishonest liberals will never point out that Rhoodie was acquitted by the Appeals court.

Nevertheless, the R70 million funding Rhoodie got to wage a PR campaign for his country in a time when the whole world’s propaganda painted South Africa as the skunk of the world pales in comparison to the BILLIONS the ANC has stolen.

So now I see the social scientists and ANC apologist journalists are taking cues from some real scientists. If you cannot dazzle them with brilliance, then baffle them with bullshit... Like their “dark matter” and “dark energy” they invented

Therefore I had to laugh when I read this article: Apartheid was legalized corruption

According to the fucktard who wrote that rubbish, people should stop thinking and saying that Apartheid was better (which it was) because Apartheid was “Grand Corruption”.

Obviously the idiot could not present a shed of proof, so he came to the conclusion that “It was a corruption so grand it seemed invisible.”

I kid you not.

Intolerant liberals. They make me sick

By Mike Smith

6th of October 2015

Amazing how intolerant the hypocritical liberals are who always want to patronize others about intolerance. Nobody dare speak their minds or mention a simple truth or risk having to apologize, being disciplined, and being sacked.

Take The DA’s Dianne Kohler Barnard for instance who was a DA spokesperson for several years and their shadow minister of police. Now she has been demoted to the position of deputy shadow minister of public works.

Her sin? She shared on her Facebook page a post calling for the return of late apartheid-era president PW Botha.

It read: “This is a bloody circus. Please come back PW Botha – you were far more honest than any of these ANC rogues, and you provided far better services to the public – we had a functioning education system, health system and police did not murder miners on behalf of government toadies as they do now.”

Now what exactly is wrong with that? She is 100% correct. This ANC regime IS a circus. They ARE dishonest rogues. The P.W. Botha regime was indeed far better and ten times more efficient than the current ANC scum. It is even acknowledged by most blacks.

I might not agree with these liberals, but I find it disgusting that a party can treat a highly respected member that has worked herself to the bone for her party like some kind of criminal for speaking the truth. She has been chastised like a naughty child. They forced her to apologize. If I was her I would have shown them the middle finger.

It just shows once again why I NEVER want the DA to run this country. They are even more intolerant to free speech, free opinions and truth than the ANC!

Liberals and their self detruct button

By Mike Smith

6th of October 2015

I cannot for the hell of me understand this liberal mindset.

Robbers burn and rape woman on farm

Woman brutally attacked on farm. Has no hatred in her heart

This lady, Alison Oates (58) of Oatesdale farm near Harrismith in the Freestate, helped blacks after their shacks burned down and helped to uplift the poor blacks in her community in general.

Then came along two blacks who robbed her of less than R100, stabbed her in the leg, shoulder and back, burned her with a clothing iron on her chest and gang raped her…and she carries no hatred. WTF?

It shows you that these racist blacks do not care about your political stance. All they see is that you are white and therefore a racist that needs to be robbed, raped, tortured and killed.

It seems like she is not yet cured of her liberalism. She doesn't hate yet. What is it going to take then? Another visit by her beloved Noble Savages? Maybe her death will be the only thing that will ever cure her of her mental disorder known as liberalism.

But she is not the only one.

A well known DA councilor from Northern Pretoria narrowly escaped death after it has come to light that her domestic worker conspired with two other Noble Savages to shoot her and steal her identity.

”Shoot her five times in the chest: She is tough”

And what does she have to say for herself?

This well-known councilor, who requested to remain anonymous as her life and her family’s were in danger, said the domestic worker had been employed by them for the past three years. “I treated her like family. I trusted her with my life.”

Is she simple or something?

It is probably going to sound harsh, but I have to say it. I don’t care if you are AWB like Terreblanche or DA like these women above…If you are going to keep on employing them and try to uplift them, don’t be surprised when they turn on you, rape, torture and murder you. If you want to be a good person and help others, start by helping your own people not rapacious murdering savages.

ANC says Western Cape is a hideout for racists

By Mike Smith

5th of October 2015

According to the ANC’s very own papbek Kombuismeid, Tina “Jou-ma-se” Petersen, the Western Cape is a hideout for racists who do not want a black government

At a provincial ANC meeting, yesterday she likened the Western Cape to Orania, a Northern Cape town where only white Afrikaners are allowed to live.

She said the Western Cape had become painted as a place where “there is an influx of the rural poor from the Eastern Cape”.

“Those who do not believe in black majority rule, who still want to perpetuate white minority (rule), have moved from Gauteng to the Western Cape (and), have moved from Northern Cape,” she reportedly said.

“Those who still want to be racists have descended on your shores. You have new Jan van Riebeecks here.

“It is never mentioned that there is a coalition of white anti-left and anti-progressive forces here. The province is systematically not moving towards federalism, they are moving to an Orania, an independent state of the Western Cape.”

Ja ou Tina…anyone that does not want to live under a corrupt and thieving ANC dictatorship is a “racist” nê?

She is actually admitting what a failure the ANC regime is and how they failed to uplift the poor blacks from the Eastern Cape who are now practicall streaming like refugees into the DA run Western Cape. The mere fact that people (blacks included) flee the ANC’s corruption paradises of the Eastern Cape and Mpumalanga is testimony of how bad they run those provinces. I mean if the ANC was doing a good job, nobody would flee, right?

She is further right to say that the people of the Western Cape want an independent state, separate and as far away from the ANC as possible. However these people are not so much whites, but mostly Cape coloureds like politician and businessman Peter Marais who wants a referendum on whether the Cape should become independent

Also read: Coloureds in the Cape yearning for a federal state

I wonder if Tina “Jou-ma-se” Petersen also thinks these coloureds are racists for not wanting to be under the corrupt ANC rule.

It turns out that Tina is herself the biggest racist. She is actually contradicting her own party, because the ANC claims to be a non-racial party with many white coloured and Indian members. So what “black rule” is this she is accusing whites of that they don’t want to be under? The ANC?

So now, the ANC wants to reduce the provinces. They have realized that they will NEVER get the Western Cape through the ballot box. Therefore the Western Cape must be made one with the Eastern Cape and the Northern Cape where they are still in control so they can hi-jack the Western Cape illegally.

Originally SA only had four provinces. The ANC went and turned it into nine so that all their cronies could be ministers and governors and get big remuneration packages, but now that it does not serve their agenda, they want to reduce the provinces again.

I actually agree with them. Make the Western, Northern and Eastern Cape ONE so that the entire area can rid itself of the ANC scum and become independent, not just the Western Cape.

Hungarian Police helping "refugees"

The ANC’s destruction of the education system

By Mike Smith

29 of September 2015

The once proud education system in this country is in such ongoing shambles that one does not even know where to start.

They have recently caught 173 teachers with fake degrees in Kwa-Zulu Natal alone and 14 officials caught stealing the kid’s food from the nutrition program. These are not just corrupt teachers, but also corrupt departmental officials who turn a blind eye when people submit fake qualifications.

So obviously if the teachers are cheating, then the kids are going to cheat as well.

25% of schools in SA do not offer mathematics in the last three years of school. In Mpumalanga it is as bad as half of all schools. Apparently they do not have enough qualified mathematics teachers. The province with the highest number of schools offering mathematics is the Western Cape at 91.1%...the only province not run by the ANC. Says a lot.

Shocking revelation on mathematics in SA schools

In May, it was reported that South African schoolchildren ranked second from the bottom in the world in mathematics and science, according to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

So in typical liberal fashion, they threw money at it and bought the kids tablets.Tablets ease math pains

A miracle happened. Within six months the children boosted their ANA (Annual National Assessments) results from 10% to 40%. In three other township schools it went from 17% to 51% on average.

See? That is all the black kids needed to succeed. The white man’s invention of the computer.

Maybe someone should explain to them that Dr. William Shockley, the man who received the Nobel Prize in Physics for inventing the transistor (without which their Tablets today would not be possible) was a race realist who strongly believed in the differences between races and intelligence. He also supported eugenics and proposed that people with an IQ below 100 should undergo voluntary sterilization.

Nevertheless…In my days we were not allowed to use calculators. We had to use slide rules and log and trigonometry tables. Small calculations were made in a right-hand margin and you got points for that as well.

Tja…The slide rule was good enough to build airplanes, rockets, and computers and put a man on the moon. It never needed a battery or an electricity outlet. It never caught any viruses and it never had a chip that could be destroyed by an electromagnetic pulse. The only thing it ever needed was a bit of brains to operate it. Maybe that is why they introduced tablets and not slide rules and log tables in township schools. I still use mine today. Nothing wrong with it.

As a student we didn’t have programmable calculators and we got no formula sheets. If you were too dumb to memorize formulas (like I was) you had to maar learn how to derive them from first principles.

Sorry, maybe I am just an old fart, but if children cannot do basic estimation, multiplication and division without a calculator they will never know if they are on the right track. It’s just a case of “Monkey press button; monkey gets answer”. Right or wrong…doesn’t matter. No wonder this country has a shortage of skilled artisans, technicians and engineers. They can’t even get the damn basics right, how are they going to teach differential and integral calculus?

The ANA tests are supposed to check the literacy and numeracy standards of children in our schools. It costs the taxpayer R200 million a year. However it is a total farce, because the teachers help the children with the tests to boost the averages of the schools otherwise the focus will be on them and they will get fired for not doing their jobs properly.

Even with the dumbed down TRUE Bantu education system as it is and the teachers assisting the children, at the end of last year, Grade 9 pupils nationally scored on average of less than 11 percent in mathematics. Half of pupils in Grade 3 are unable to read. So the government postponed the ANA tests from September to December, but the teacher unions want the tests completely scrapped and are threatening violence. They don’t want anybody to find out what a piss poor job they are doing. Clash looms if ANA tests go ahead

Problem is that when these tests fall away, who is going to check if the teacher’s are doing their jobs and teaching at all?

Currently the education system does not have higher and standard grades anymore. The pass mark for mathematics and science has been lowered to only 30% and children who have not passed Grade 11 are pushed through to Grade 12. More than 5,000 Western Cape pupils who had not passed Grade 11 at the end of last year were progressed to Grade 12.

Liberation before education. Pass one; pass all. No child left behind. Umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu.

Even this seems too hard, so the latest brilliant plan is to make Matric two years long so they can write half the subjects this year and the other half next year.

All I can say is; “Thank God for Apartheid Education…and of course my slide rule.”

Bacha Bazi: The Islamic cultural enrichment of the West

By Mike Smith

28 of September 2015

When one discusses the European refugee crisis with liberals, one gets the impression that they are extremely uninformed and naïve over whom and what these people really are.

Liberals tend to think that these are just “normal people” like them in need of a safe place to stay to get away from war and poverty. They don’t understand the religious culture these people come from and if they do, think these people will somehow magically change and become European.

Let me show you the truth. Talk about a bunch of sick bastards…

US soldiers told to ignore Afghan Allies raping boys

..I don’t know who is worse, the Afghans raping the boys or the Americans ignoring it.

Gregory Buckley’s son, lance corporal Greg Buckley Jr. told his father, “At night we can hear them scream, but we’re not allowed to do anything about it.”

“My son said that his officers told him to look the other way because it’s their culture.”

Culture? Or lack thereof??

This cultural practice of institutionalized paedophilia in Afghanistan is called Bacha Bazi (literally meaning “playing with boys”)

Also see the shocking British documentary made about it here: The dancing boys of Afghanistan

The filthy culture of Bacha Bazi in Afghanistan

We are not talking about the Taliban doing this. Under the Taliban Bacha Bazi was punished by the death penalty. We are here talking about the allies of the Americans fighting the Taliban. The Americans are training and arming these pedophiles ten times worse than the Taliban.

Shht, It is an open secret. Afghan warlords and paedophilia

Dan Quinn, a former Special Forces captain who beat up an American-backed militia commander for keeping a boy chained to his bed as a sex slave lost his job and had his career ruined.

Soon another commander absconded with his men’s wages. Mr. Quinn said he later heard that the commander had spent the money on dancing boys. Another commander murdered his 12-year-old daughter in a so-called honor killing for having kissed a boy. “There were no repercussions,” Mr. Quinn recalled.

Not only boys are raped. A warlord raped a 14 year old girl he spotted in the field. When Captain Quinn alerted the local police, the guy got one day in jail and was forced to marry his victim.

Imagine that...the girl, after the trauma of being raped by this filthy animal, is forced to marry him!!! It is their culture.

Soon another commander absconded with his men’s wages. Mr. Quinn said he later heard that the commander had spent the money on dancing boys. Another commander murdered his 12-year-old daughter in a so-called honor killing for having kissed a boy. “There were no repercussions,” Capt. Quinn recalled.

Captain Quinn tried to educate them and gave them lectures on human rights...Futile. All in vain.

However it is not only in Afghanistan, it is throughout the Islamic world. I have come across this in Turkey, Egypt and Syria as well.

See here. History of homosexuality in Islamic societies

Problem is that they do not even see this as homosexuality or even paedophilia. It is normal and seen as better than having sex with a woman. The gender Apartheid and segregation of women in Muslim societies and the strong emphasis on male virility leads adolescent males and unmarried young men to seek sexual outlets with boys younger than themselves as one study in Morocco, with boys in the age-range 7 to 13, has shown. Men have sex with other males as long as they are the penetrators and their partners are boys, or in some cases effeminate men.

Anal intercourse is not seen as repulsively unnatural. They believe "one has to avoid getting buggered precisely in order not to acquire a taste for it and thus become addicted. Deep shame attaches to the passive partner: "for this reason men stop getting laid at the age of 15 or 16 and 'forget' that they ever allowed it earlier."

For many young men heterosexual sodomy is considered better than vaginal penetration, because women’s vaginas are seen as dirty and unclean.

When you tell liberals the truth they clasp their hands over their ears. As usual they believe that all you have to do is throw money at the problem and educate them about human rights and Western values and they will come right. They won’t…Like Green Beret Captain Quinn discovered. The irony is that these Muslims look down on Western culture and values.

Further, any liberals wanting to change them are making themselves guilty of prejudice, bias, intolerance and defying the exact cultural relativism and racial egalitarianism they apparently ascribe to. If the cultures and religions really were all they same and none better or superior to the other they should simply leave these Afghans alone and tolerate their despicable practices.

This is the cognitive dissonance liberals (especially liberal women) are confronted with. They are all for tolerance, equality and liberty, but when confronted with a culture that rapes boys and where fathers kill their 12 yo daughters for kissing boys, they don’t know what to say.

Think about it next time you witness the ten thousand odd Muslim refugees arriving in Europe every day and the stupid Europeans welcoming them and taking them into their homes like Bob Geldof who wants to put four families up in his homes in London and Kent.

There are currently 300,000 Afghan refugees in the USA and 120,000 in Germany. It is called "cultural enrichment". Just remember to keep your beautiful European children very far away from these so called "refugees".

The Maxie and Bobbejani bitch fight

By Mike smith

23 of September 2015

Don’t you just love it when white liberals get seriously “wake-up” slapped by their beloved Noble Savages?

For years…decades now, whites in SA had to bear the brunt of the poisonous pen of the Marxist critical theorist, Max du Preez accusing them of being paranoid “racists” believing in a “Swart gevaar” (black threat). He was convinced that blacks and the ANC would run the country far better than those “verkrampte” Afrikaners would.

His whorenalistic diatribes, rants, odes and love letters to the terrorist ANC at the fish & chips rapper Vrye Weekblad pale in comparison to his modern day nauseating verbal vomit on News24. One has to force oneself to actually read it without starting to puke after each sentence.

But recently old Maxie had lost faith in his beloved ANC savages. The misrule, corruption and outright theft, like the proverbial elephant in the room, became too huge to ignore. Even Maxie started to concider the option of revolution.

In a recent article he asked, ”Would the ANC hand over power?”

Now we know they won’t. They would just, “go back to the bush” and stage a coup. I have said so many times on this blog. Maxie came to the same conclusion in his hypothesis. So he said:

“Refusing to accept the results of a free and fair election constitutes a coup d’état: tearing up the constitution, disbanding Parliament and provincial legislatures, closing down the judicial system, the takeover by party functionaries of the police and army, and, inevitably, detaining thousands of people without trial.”

He even admitted that Zuma is becoming a dictator modeling himself on Robert Mugabe and Vladimir Putin and wants to stay in power forever. However he concluded that SA is not Zimbabwe or Russia and that our people won’t allow him to act with impunity.

I don’t know where Maxie has been in the past 9 years. Zuma has 783 charges of corruption against him, he survived a rape trial, the Weapons scandal, the Nkandla scandal, The Gupta wedding scandal, The Bashir scandal…and he is still a free man. He is indeed allowed to act with impunity by South Africans.

Therefore, Maxie is convinced that we should not worry about the ANC’s unwillingness to give up power at the ballot box…although they have said many times they will rule until Jesus comes.

Maxie recons, “We should rather worry about - and do something about - the independence of our judiciary and the freedom and independence of our media. We should channel our energy towards fighting corruption and nepotism and towards our battle against inequality and unemployment.”

Basically he wants us to go after the leaves and branches of the weeds instead of taking out the roots of the trouble. Get rid of the ANC, institute a proper democracy and all your problems will be solved. Maxie refuses to see that.

However it did not take long before an ANC bastard attacked him for thinking that democracy is wasted on blacks and all the proof of it above our borders in the rest of Africa is null and void for SA and nothing to go by.

Man of the moment was BEE “business man” and ANC Apparatchik Patrick Bongani “Bo” Mbindwane. He gave himself the name “Bo” because it sounds more manly and macho than the full Kaffir name of “Bongani” and not so Colonial as his first name “Patrick”. Maybe the “Bo” is short for “Bobbejani” not “Bongani”.

The attack was so vicious and full of lies that Maxie complained to his editor at News24 who cowardly pulled the post, but Max saved it for posterity and published it verbatim on his Facecrook page.

Read it here: “Max du Preez In Cloud-Cuckoo Land With A Whiff Of “Swart Gevaar” and Racism

Bobbejani Mbindwane, started out saying that, “If voted out of power, the ANC would as it has repeatedly in local and provincial level relinquished power should it lose any election.”

Like hell they would.

Pure speculation, but he is convinced and his “evidence” is based on t
he Western Cape that the ANC has lost and certain wards and municipalities they have lost since 1994. However he neglects to mention how the ANC has since tried their utmost to make the Western Cape ungovernable and openly threatened on numerous occasions to do so more. They are even collaborating with Cape Flats gangsters in order to retake the province.

Next he launched into a vicious attack on Du Preez, laying words into his mouth, attributing false quotes to him, accusing him of racism, stereotyping, etc. Personally I think the guy was drunk when he wrote that rubbish.

This stinking rich BEE parasite in Armani suits who calls himself “a business man” cried about how difficult, bitter and hurtful it is for a black in a white dominated SA…

Oh really? With whites only making up 9% of the population, excluded from the business market, top jobs, universities and sports by racist ANC quotas, Affirmative Action and Black Economic Empowerment…is he mental or something?

Bobbejani “Bo” Mbindwane sounds like he is complaining with a piece of white cake in his hand and cream dripping off his fat lips, whilst pulling out his intestines about how “they” (I presume he includes himself) have “emotional and physical scars” about being “beaten up, starved, sold off to slavery, enslaved, raped, dispossessed, left in the cold after their wealth was taken by force by invaders and travellers (sic…Kaffirs can’t spell) from Europe.”

“We were removed from our extended loved ones and our very children. The scars of torture, the beatings, imprisonment, abuse and humiliation, hunger and poverty”…Blah, blah, bullshit.

Oh yes…the blacks in Apartheid SA were starving so much and being treated so badly that their numbers skyrocketed in 80 years from 2 million to 40 million and blacks from the Socialist Paradise of Mozambique were flocking over our borders in their thousands INTO the Apartheid hell.

The lying bastard then carried on about how “they” were so forgiving in 1994 and never asked for “repatriations” (I think he meant reparations) from Du Preez’s “Volk”…note the usage of the German (Nazi) sounding word for “people”. This idiot has obviously not heard of Godwin’s Law that says when you pull the Nazi invective in an online debate, you have lost.

Said the BEE savage…”We wanted only an equal opportunity going forward. We wanted peace and reconciliation. We acted on what we asked for. We constructed a new beautiful South Africa, which even today is still a beacon of hope for many in the world.”

HAHAHAHA…and then he has the audacity to accuse Maxie of being in “Cloud Cuckoo Land”…

The murder rate of whites by blacks in the last 21 years since “reconciliation” stands at about 60,000. More than we ever lost during the war on the border with Angola and both world wars put together. Some “peace and reconciliation” he is talking about…

A beautiful SA that is a beacon of hope? Take a long hard look around you Bobbejani. SA is a crime infested hellhole. People are living in fear every day. The schools, the hospitals, everything the ANC is in charge of is stuffed up. Unemployment is the highest ever. People are emigrating in their tens of thousands every year to get away from your “beacon of hope”. The country is far worse than it ever was under Apartheid. The people far more divided through the racial policies of the ANC than they were under the NATS you so despise.

He then lies about how whites were today almost zero percent unemployed and have big houses and lots of money and how whites should be thankful that blacks have not yet taken all their wealth from them. He neglects to point out the 800,000 poor whites living in squatter camps and abject poverty and how whites get robbed, raped, hi-jacked, murdered and over taxed by blacks every day.

Maxie cried, “Mbindwane, with the help of a senior ANC functionary, then led a loud cheering commando on Twitter and Facebook calling me a nasty racist, white supremacist, Boer nationalist, land thief, evil disciple of Verwoerd and other unspeakable names.”…and then responded again:

Why we need to isolate the peddlers of hate

I am sure it was the first time I ever saw him use the words “Black” and “Racist” next to each other. That is what he called Bobbejani and people like them…”Black racists” who think they can insult whites with impunity by telling them “they are evil intruders, rapists and murderers who should go on their knees to thank us for not taking their property or chasing them into the sea”.

We all know who the REAL “intruders”, “rapists” and “murderers” are in South Africa. Seems Maxie and Bobbejani are overlooking this fact of life.

Maxie concluded almost with a cry of help: “The torrent of abuse continues unabated, from Mbindwane and others, as I write this. This is merely one example of the irrational, unreasonable racial outbursts and attacks that have become all too common.”

“Help me, help me…!!!” Maxie cried…

Sit down you sissy. For years you were the one who did the abusing and name calling. Not so nice to be on the receiving end now, is it Max? Its called KARMA: Kry vir jou. Go sit and think hard why this is now happening to you. You say we should “isolate the peddlers of hate”…start by isolating yourself you miserable piece of liberal slangkak.

But it was Maxie’s beloved pet Noble Savage who had the last word…at least for now.

It is hard being black in SA. A response to Max du Preez

It is basically a regurgitation and stuck-record-rant of the clichéd bollocks namely “white privilege” and “black tolerance” he mentioned in his first response to Du Preez, but he reiterated how upset he was that Du Preez could dare to say the ANC would not let go of power. Well I have said it a thousand times. I would love to see him have a go at me.

I think the drama queen Bobbejani realized that all this melodramatical outbursts and insults towards whites over their perceived supremacy were simply in his fantasy when he said, “Some, if not the majority of whites, do not carry on this way knowingly. Unconsciously the black body gets ill-treated, abused, looked down upon and simply suppressed.”

So even if whites do absolutely NOTHING…their mere presence oppresses blacks. This is the stuff Franz Fanon wrote about in “The Wretched of the Earth”. The black man does not just want to kill the white man, he wants to BECOME the white man. He envies the power of the white man. HE, the black man, wants to be the oppressor. He wants to sleep with his wife, preferably in his bed…Read Fanon to see the true mind of the Noble Savage

Bobbejani also complains about whites telling blacks that they are playing the “race card”…. “The use of the term “race card” is offensive, racist and harmful. It aims to shut the victim down, rob the victims of a voice whilst delegitimising their complaint as worthless. Black lives are not a game, there is no trump card. There are real experiences of abuse, oppression and there are great anxieties.”

A cry me a river you racially obsessed Wuss. So what is it you want whites to do when you insult them? Just shut the fuck up and take your Kaffir shit?

But this lying bastard continues…”Laws have been passed, with our Constitution being supreme, abolishing all discrimination. However discrimination persists and suppresses the black body.”

No you unintelligible, incomprehensible Fucktard. What do you call BEE, Affirmative Action, University and sports quotas then? It is blatant racial discrimination against the minorities in this country. It is not suppressing the black body; it is suppressing the white body.

Then came the subtle threats we have come so accustomed to and have heard a thousand times already. Bobbejani reckons that “Blacks are largely becoming reconciliation-fatigued” and that could “disturb South Africa's democracy”.

OOOOHHHHH!!!! Shaking in my pants.

Bobbejani stands by his removed article.

The typical revolutionist

By Mike Smith

23rd of September 2015

When you ask people to describe the typical revolutionist, it conjures up pictures in their minds of a bearded Che Guevara, or serious looking Lenin or Mao.

In a South African context it brings up pictures of mass demonstrations and necklace murders in townships to MK terrorists planting limpid mines and storming into churches with AK 47’s. Just the mere thought of a revolution brings up negative connotations, as if it is something that “WE” do not do…Mass action, boycotts, strikes, etc. are all “what Communists do” or “what blacks do”… Today people feel as if revolutions were OK for whites back in history, but somehow not today. We are civilized, we just don’t do that kind of thing anymore.

However when you look at how revolutions start, who drives them and how the “typical revolutionist profile” looks like, then we see that in fact it is indeed “us” and not “them” that are the best and most efficient revolutionaries.

The revolution in England in the 1640’s, the American and French Revolutions in the 18th century, the Voortrekkers who trekked away from the Cape Colony, the Boer Guerillas, the Bittereinders and the Maritz Rebellion, were all done by white people and had very little to do with Communism rather the attempt to realize an idealistic dream of a better world.

Further, if you take a look at revolutions of the 21st century, especially the successful ones of Serbia (2000) and Iceland (2008) and you see the people who planned and drove it were just “normal people”…They were not “communists” and certainly not “rabble” and “riff-raff”.

Don’t be surprised. This is nothing new and nothing strange. We see the same theme all throughout revolutions from the times of the Greeks and Romans all the way up to today.

People today think that the French Revolution was driven by peasants. However this is false.

The social standing of the revolutionist

From 1789 to 1795…62% of the revolutionists were upper- and middleclass, 29% were working class and only 9% were peasants. The revolutionists were in the upper tax brackets and well above the average one. The Jacobins were neither all noblemen nor all beggars, but almost everything in between. They represented a complete cross section of the population. The same can be said of the English Revolution, The American Revolution and the Russian Revolution.

In England when the New Model Army took the field in 1645, of the 37 chief officers, nine were of noble birth, 21 of gentle birth, and only 7 not gentlemen by birth. The peasants and English lower classes stood aloof from the conflict.

In America it was the merchants who first organized opposition to the crown. This was then echoed by the planters in the southern coastal plain and very respectable yeoman farmers of the Piedmont. Even the Boston Sons of Liberty who did most of the actual work of violence there were recruited from working men.

In Russia, it was the February Revolution (not the October Revolution) that got rid of the hated Czar. Almost everyone, liberal noble, banker, industrialist, lawyer, doctor, civil servant, kulak, and workingman, was glad to co-operate in giving the Czarist regime its final blow.

Even the radical Bolsheviks in the October Revolution were far from “rabble” and “riff-raff”. They were recruited chiefly from the more enterprising, able and skilled workmen in the factories of Petrograd, Moscow and specialized industrial centres like Ivanovo-Vosnessensk or the Don basin. Their most important leaders were largely drawn from the middle class.

Compared to modern times…It is as if our present day Rotarians and Lion’s Club members were revolutionists.

What we need to understand is that on the whole, revolutionists do not represent the dregs of society. Even Marxist theory recognizes that the “Lumpenproletariat” is not revolutionary. The idea that the very oppressed and the poor are important as initiating and maintaining revolutions is a myth and frankly, rubbish.

When you look at the leaders of the revolutions, you see that they come from the same rank and file as the rest of the ordinary revolutionists. In France you had lawyers in large numbers leading the revolution (Camus, Robespierre, Danton,etc) as well as men of science (astronomer Bailly, chemist Lavoisier, mathematician Monge, etc). You also had journalists like Marat and Desmoulins, publicists like Brissot…even noblemen like the King’s cousin, The Duke of Orleans, Comte de Mirabeau, the Lameth brothers and the Marquis de La Fayette.

In America, of the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence, 33 held college degrees in an age when few ever went to college. Only four of the signers had little or no formal education. There were five doctors, eleven merchants, four farmers, twenty two lawyers and three ministers. Twelve were sons of ministers. Nearly all were affluent.

In England and Russia it was almost identical as far as the social origins of the revolutionaries are concerned. Amongst the Bolsheviks you had educated men like Trotsky and Kamenev; Felix Dzerzhinsky, of noble Polish-Lithuanian stock; Sverdlov, a chemist; Kalinin, a farmer, Stalin (Born Djugashvili) of Georgian peasant-artisan stock, destined by his mother for the priesthood and for sometime a student in a seminary.

Further there was nothing sudden or brand new about these revolutionists. All of them seemed to have gone through a long political awareness, an awakening apprenticeship and involved in pressure groups.

Neither are they precociously young. These leaders are usually in the middle age, the thirties and forties. The young men, the St. Justs, the Bonapartes, the Serbian Otpor boys in their twenties are the exception, not the rule.

As Dr. Crane Brinton wrote: “Bums, hoboes, the mob, the rabble, the riff-raff, may be recruited to do the street fighting and the manor burning of revolutions, but they emphatically do not make, do not run revolutions – not even proletarian revolutions.”

The character of the revolutionist

A contented man cannot be a revolutionist. Therefore revolutionists are discontented men who lead other discontented men on a crusade for a better world. They have come to struggle for God’s kingdom on earth.

They are, at least in the beginning, kind at heart, sensitive people and sincere idealists. They have a keen sense of right and wrong.

They refuse to accept the pessimistic and pragmatic realities of the world around them. They see and dream the possibilities of a more Utopian world.

They are heavily influenced by the writings of intellectuals. They begin to feel acutely the differences from their fathers and grandfathers. They are of a new generation…a generation in revolt. A generation that want change.

Many of these revolutionary men would never have been heard of under normal conditions. They might even be thought of as “Losers” or “failures” by the rest of a subjective society who only see their failure in a trade or profession not their success as revolutionists.

Some, like Sam Adams whose brewery he inherited went bankrupt, can indeed be classed as abject failures. Jean Paul Marat in France was a self educated physician, political theorist and scientist with a string of fake degrees and honorary distinctions that he awarded to himself.

However…both men are known for their radical, but excellent propaganda and albeit hate filled, revolutionary journalism against those in power.

Sam Adams did become the governor of Massachusetts (1794-1797) so one can argue that he eventually did become successful outside of the revolution.

Thomas Paine, the atheist and seditious writer was another founding father of the USA. He was involved in both the American and the French revolutions, but before the American Revolution he amounted to almost nothing. He was a stay maker by trade making rope stays for sailing ships. He served at sea as a privateer for a short while, before starting a business in Sandwich, Kent, which failed. Then served as a customs officer, but was fired for flogging his inspections. However, with his pamphlet “Common Sense” he inspired the rebels to declare independence from Britain.

English revolutionary, country gentleman and religious fanatic, Oliver Cromwell, the regicide who signed the death warrant of King Charles I, achieved almost nothing for the first forty years of his life.

Along with his brother Henry, Cromwell had kept a smallholding of chickens and sheep, selling eggs and wool to support himself, his lifestyle resembling that of a yeoman farmer.

The revolution changes men.

During the so called “reign of terror” of a revolution, some of these gentlemen amongst the extremists do show signs of psychopathy and they are found in every society. Under normal circumstances they would not even be noticed, but during the “reign of terror”, they come to the fore.

Robespierre was a lawyer and once opposed the death penalty and war with Austria. He became the soul of the “reign of terror” in France.

Jean-Babtiste Carrier, the son of a farmer who attended Jesuit College and eventually became a country lawyer was known for his cruelty during the French Revolution, especially to the clergy.

Originally he set up the Revolutionary tribunal at Nantes to give prisoners “a fair trial”, but the jails were too full and the guillotines moving too slowly, so he put large numbers of prisoners on board vessels with trap doors for bottoms, and sunk them in the Loire River. Men and women were stripped naked and tied together in what he called “Revolutionary Marriage” before they were drowned. He also lined up hundreds of prisoners in fields and called the National Guard to shoot them down one by one.

These horrific executions, especially of priests and nuns, as well as women and children, known as the Drownings at Nantes (Noyades) along with his increasing haughty demeanor, gained Carrier a reputation for wanton cruelty.

In more modern times, the most famous revolutionary, Che Guevara, came from an educated liberal and middleclass family. He always wanted to help his fellow man, especially the poor and studied medicine at the University of Buenos Aires. He was a keen Rugby player who played fly half for the University. During this time he also undertook two motorcycle journeys through South America where he witnessed severe poverty and exploitation of the poor. In 1953 he completed his doctorate in medicine, but did not practice. He gave it all up to become a revolutionary. This man would become a guerilla leader known for his summary executions of informers, deserters and spies.

Idealist Revolutionaries

If you have to single out one kind of person as the perfect revolutionist, then it is not the bloodthirsty lunatic, the embittered failure or the envious upstart. It is the idealist… and there are several categories of idealists.

Idealists of course are in our own times the cement of a stable normal society. It is good for us all that there should be men of noble aspirations. Idealists dream of a world as it might or should be. Idealism should not be confused with “wishful thnking” or “ignorance”. Idealism based on a solid foundation of social and political realism is a sign of intellectual maturity. However, idealism needs action. Without rolling up your sleeves and making it happen, idealism will stay a dream and a vision.

In normal times such men do not seem to occupy positions of power and responsibility. Like we have seen they might even be failures. In revolutionary times, the idealist at last gets a chance to try and realize his ideals.

The first type of revolutionary idealist is a theorist like Phillipe Buonarroti, the Utopian Socialist and Freemason from the French Revolution who could be said to be the father of Communism and the inspiration to Marx.

He envisioned a world moving from a monarchy to liberalism, to radicalism and finally Communism. Although he made a career out of planning and preaching revolution, he was never a major factor in actually producing one. Karl Marx and the American revolutionary theorist, Gene Sharp, also fall in this category.

Next you have the Revolutionary Orator, the man who can hold crowds spellbound. During the French revolution, Camille Desmoulins blossomed into revolutionary vigour on the day that he called the mob to arms in the gardens of the Palais Royal. Only then did his talents as a writer and rabble-rouser emerge. Up to this time he was miserably poor.

During the American revolution you can take Patrick Henry's "liberty or death" speech and George Washington's appeal to mutinous army officers as examples. In Russia you had the great orator, Grigory Zinovieiv. In more modern times we think of Martin Luther King Jr., Hitler, Ghandi and even Mandela as revolutionary orators.

The next type of Revolutionary Idealist is the practical man, the man of action anxious to get the practical tasks of government carried out.. Often he is a “fanatic”, “embittered”, “demonic” and inhumane idealist. Ernesto “Che” Guevara, Marat the neglected scientist, Hitler who failed as a painter. Robespierre who failed as a student of essay and verse. Lenin, the ambitious philosopher who thought he could do better than Marx. Mussolini the self taught scholar and wannabee intellectual all fall in this category.


Revolutions are extraordinary periods and all kinds of men will rise to the top that would in normal stable societies not have achieved these positions. These are men who go beyond the chronic complaining and actively work and share ideas about the revolution.

They are of above average social standing, above average intelligence, often gifted, creative intellectuals and idealists ostracized by society who do not appreciate them…a pragmatic society that think their dreams of a better world are useless wastes of time, but revolutionaries know in their hearts that they were always destined for bigger things. They crave the revolution. They fanatically pursue it and when it finally comes, they are in their element. It is like coming home after a long journey…Finally they have found their place in life, in the Revolution.
