The “Ons roep die Baas” chronicles…Thyssenk(o)rupp(t) to bail out the SA Navy’s sinking skuitjies

I have always maintained that liberals are just socialists who do not understand socialism. They don't understand what it truly is. That is why Lenin called them “useful idiots”.
Socialism is just a tool, a plan or strategy to steal everything from hardworking people and to enslave them for as long as possible so you can milk them dry. Let others work hard and you steal it all.
When you understand this basic principle, then it is fairly simple to understand why the world’s biggest capitalists like the Ford Foundation, the Rockefellars, the Rothschild’s, et al support Socialists all over the world and why they were behind the end of Apartheid and bringing the corrupt Marxist ANC to power. It is all about the money. Just follow the MONEY. It always ends up back at these mega corporations and banks.
Let us look at how this principle works at the hand of a recent incident.
A few days ago in Rostock in the former (DDR) East Germany, Denel has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Germany’s ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (TKMS) covering the support of the South African Navy’s three submarines and four frigates.

So let me explain to you what happened here.
After Apartheid was gone and the ANC came to power…in the late 1990’s, the corrupt gangsters masquerading as a legitimate government, the useless ANC, stole BILLIONS from the South African taxpayers to buy weapons from mega corporations overseas and receive kickbacks on it, in what is known as the great South African arms deal scandal
Officially the number stolen was R30 Billion (about $4.8 billion at the time) but other sources reckon it was at least double that.
Part of this deal was the acquisition of four MEKO class frigates and three 209 Class submarines from Germany through the engineering and steel giant ThyssenKrupp, nicknamed in South Africa, Thyssenk(o)rupp(t)
Of course ThyssenKrupp has a very dark history of not only dealing with the Nazi’s and building up their war machine, but actively sponsoring them. Between 1933 and 1945 they donated 60 Million Reichmarks to the Nazis every year.
From 1940 to 1945 more than 100,000 forced labourers and prisoners of war worked as slaves in the 81 factories of ThyssenKrupp making everything from Tiger Tanks to the trains that transported the Jews to the concentration camps.

After the war, the court in Nuremberg was very lenient on the Krupps, because those behind the court was also the big money powers of the Capitalist countries deviding up the spoils of war. Gustav Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach took one for the team and were convicted of slavery and plundering, but did no time due to health reasons (he suffered several strokes). Of course their excuse for the slavery is that this actually saved some Jews from being killed.
For his effort and the death of 20 million Russian soldiers against the Nazis, Stalin got Eastern Europe and half of Germany.
Today the Krupps are still operating, still using slaves and still corrupt to the core…and it is all legal in Germany, because under German law, companies can be as corrupt as they want and bribe as much as they want as long as they don’t do it in Germany itself.
So how fitting then that such a company would do business with the Afro-Nazis of the ANC and rip the South African taxpayer’s off. The South African taxpayers are just their new slaves under a different name.
All of their shenanigans came out when the current mayor of Cape Town, Patricia de Lille, blew the whistle in parliament that she had evidence of three payments by warship supplier Thyssen-Krupp on 29 January 1999, each of R500,000, to the ANC, to the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund and to the Community Development Foundation, a Mozambique charity associated with Mandela's wife, Graça Machel.
Der Spiegel revealed that German investigators in Düsseldorf investigated allegations of $25m-worth of bribes paid to South African politicians, officials and middlemen by ThyssenKrupp.
British and German investigators suspected that bribes of over one billion rand were eventually paid to facilitate the deal. Jacob Zuma, Thabo Mbeki, Tony Yengeni, Schabir Shaik and his brother Chippy Shaik as well as then Defense Minister Joe Modise’s advisor, Fana Hlongwane were mentioned.

Nevertheless the Navy’s rigates and subs were delivered and part of the deal was that ThyssenKrupp had to reinvest some of their money into South Africa, but when they came out to South Africa in 2005/2006 with a swollen wallet to dish out the loot, they found that nobody wanted to touch their filthy money.
Of course by then the “Arms Deal” was well known as the “Arms Scandal” and companies were scared that they would later be accused of benefiting from kickbacks of the arms deal, because the full extent of the Arms Scandal has never come to light.
So back then…in discussions with the Navy and the ANC regime, it was decided that they would build a fifth frigate.

However, in the meantime the ANC, through their abominable racist policies of BEE and kAffirmative Action, ruined the once proud SA Navy.
For instance, my favourite female Admiral and former MK mattress in Angola, Khanyisile Litchfield-Tshabalala, was fired for defrauding the Navy out of laptops and assaulting a subordinate guard who wanted to search her car.
You would think that someone on an admiral’s salary would be able to buy a laptop and not steal it, but then you don’t know the mentality of such a common kaffir.

She then went to the EFF for a while and then the UDM, but also resigned September 2016 from them after a fallout with UDM leader, General Bantu Holomisa. She got another defence posting and is currently National Youth Service coordinator at the Department of Defence.
Of course the case of Khanyisile Litchfield-Tshabalala is just one example of the scum the Navy brought in. There are hundreds of examples. What irks me the most is that when you speak to the white guys who are still in the SA Navy then you constantly hear apologetic bullshit such as that “The MK ones are not so bad; it is the APLA ones that are useless...”
Be it as it may, the SA NAVY is FUCKED!
During Apartheid the dockyard used to have some excellently skilled personnel. The electricians, welders, fitters and turners, etc were some of the best I have ever come across in my life. The engineers and other technical personnel on the ships were world class.
Where are they today? All gone. Emigrated or found jobs somewhere else without any problem like all highly skilled people do. Many have crossed over to the Merchant Navy, work in industry or started their own businesses. The ones left in the SA Navy are the dregs and useless ones. The scum who still kiss ANC ass and suck ANC dick.
The SA Navy hardly has enough skilled personnel to man even ONE frigate. Let alone the other three or a fifth one. They have no people to run the dockyard or dry-dock ships. There is no one left to do upgrades and planned maintenance on their vessels. They cannot recruit any people; because there is no money in the budget...I mean you cannot give money that the ANC can steal to the Navy or train personnel, can you?
So what did they do? They went to Denel/Armscor to help them run the dockyard, but because Denel is also suffering the same skills shortages, they have now gone a full circle back to the original builders of the frigates, our German friends...ThyssenK(o)rupp(t)
ThyssenKrupp engineers and technicians must now be flown in to do maintenance on the Navy vessels, do drydocks and upgrades, etc…And I can assure you that at R14 to the Euro…The Germans don’t come cheap.
Of course it would be far cheaper and better for South Africa to recruit the former workers and technical staff with attractive packages or train new ones, but to get the Navy back to its former glory will take at least ten years to train people up and allow them to gain the necessary experience. I am afraid that this depth of knowledge and experience is lost forever. Ruined by the illustrious ANC. You will never get these people back to come and work for the ANC.
However the ANC are not in the least interested in restoring the Navy to its former glory or to train up and skill people. All they are interested in is how much money they can steal through kickbacks and blatant corruption and, because it worked so well the last time…they have approached ThyssenK(o)rupp(t) again.
And when the vessels are old and need to be scrapped, you start the whole process, the whole cycle of corruption, again. No one knows how long this contract is for, because the media is all quiet about it, but to these mega industrialists and foreign banking scum, the ANC is the gift that keeps on giving. They are the ones keeping the white taxpayers enslaved and paying their taxes. The keepers and guardians of the white tax cows.
The ANC create the problem, there is an outcry that something must be done and then they offer the solution and appear as the heroes.
