The Facebook reaction to this post is for some to ridiculously call me racist instead of entering reasonable discussion that’s on topic and towards a better South Africa for all. I hope that some will think before jumping, gaining perspective of my position by first viewing some of my previous thoughts on racists and racism.
Afrikaans is a dying language. In the Constitutional Court of South Africa, on December 29 2017, it could be said that Afrikaans was on trial. Afriforum was opposing the University of the Free State’s decision to use English as its medium language. In the television broadcast of the judgement on Afriforum’s final leave to appeal, Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng often used the words “racism” and “apartheid”, emphasising how difficult the topic is. That difficulty is emphasised by previously contrary rulings in lower courts. Mogoeng said that the dual medium policy unintentionally led to “cultural segregation” and “racial tension” and that … ‘Click here to read full article…’
Your most popular blogs on KnysnaKeep.org in 2017 involved the Great Knysna Fire, political corruption, racism, fraud and witches. Numerous blogs from previous years remained well read. Overall, there were 242,000 page views, an impressive spotlight on my niche website, even more so considering that i never wrote for 2 months. Whilst i wish there were more citizen activists, you readers prove there’s need for alternate news sources. Facebook statistics were far higher, reaching 130,000 people this December alone. Facebook isn’t as personal to me as many users are skim readers. Nevertheless, those 12,168 subscribers include valuable people. 67% are … ‘Click here to read full article…’
RACISM IS THE IDIOT’S EXCUSE yet was present far too often during our Knysna fire crisis! My pages, Love Knysna and Knysna Keep, aim for a better Knysna through bravery, transparency, honesty and greater citizen rights. That means both promoting and informing our town, and fighting the corrupt, dark heart of Cape Town that dominates us. As importantly, these pages are about telling you to be less afraid /or/ supportive of those in dictatorial power. Know your enemy! Consequently, fundamentals include encouraging you to think for yourselves whilst standing up for human rights. In particular, racism is the idiot’s excuse to … ‘Click here to read full article…’
While the community of Knysna worked together around the clock last week to deal with the devastating aftermath of its “Great Fire”, the race-mongers around the country did not miss the opportunity to try to divide South Africans. Andile Mngxitama of Black First, Land First (BLF), blamed “white monopoly capital” for the blaze, while the ANC-linked chatterati ascribed the extent of the relief effort to the fact that whites were among the dead, and had also lost property, possessions and businesses. In the context of this racial madness, the best place to be was Knysna itself, a cocoon of sanity, … ‘Click here to read full article…’
“I hadn’t thought about what was wrong with Ellie, not even when i parked the car. Kids get sick. But unlike the old gettin sick, kids normally get sick to get stronger, their immune system and all that stuff. It was certainly a surprise when I saw her dead body and, because I didn’t know what to say at first, I got to have a good look. She was more startlin because she was on her back, lookin at me if she coulda looked. Her tiny face carried no astonishment or fear. It was blank with resignation, as if … ‘Click here to read full article…’
DA Federal Chairperson James Selfe has confirmed that Helen Zille has been charged for her tweets over colonialism. He said that the process could take months as Zille was a busy person and that she could appeal any possible decision against her. The tweets included: “For those claiming legacy of colonialism was ONLY negative‚ think of our independent judiciary‚ transport infrastructure‚ piped water‚ etc.” “Would we have had a transition into specialised healthcare and medication without colonial influence? Just be honest‚ please.” The tweets and DA Mmusi Maimane’s subsequent complaint against her has divided South Africa. Ironically, that division is … ‘Click here to read full article…’

“My kids will murder your kids in their sleep if you continue thinking you [whites are] superior – you watch.” MURDEROUS RACISM Asanda Magesh Magalela is a government employee who clearly expressed his wish for white people to be killed. It happened on my Love Knysna Facebook page after i posted an update on the woman who allegedly hitched a ride in an animal cage in the back of a bakkie. Magalela also said: “This is what you get [from the] ANC for negotiating for what was ours to begin with. We were supposed to be given the opportunity to … ‘Click here to read full article…’
VIDEO OF THE MONTH: Back in 1990, a handful of us students and a teacher met Terror Lekota in a secret meeting just after he got out of Robben Island. He was impressive. This speech of his in Parliament reminds me of the intelligent passion he showed us that day. Here he defends the Constitution whilst reprimanding Jacob Zuma and Julius Malema, reminding us of the Rwanda genocide and stating strongly that he cannot support the promotion of South Africans killing South Africans.
