This is the text of the message prepared for the March Against Farm Murders, to be delivered to the marchers at the gates of parliament, 25 October 2020. Due to it being curtailed by the organisers, only half of the message was given at parliament. Here is the full text:
Farmers Under Fire
Farmers in South Africa are in the very frontline of the fight for Faith and freedom. The most dangerous occupation in the world is to be a farmer in South Africa. South African farmers are being murdered at a rate 400% greater than even the police.
Worse than War
South Africa, under the ANC, has one of the highest violent crime rates in the world. Over 20,000 people are murdered in South Africa every year. That is more than all the South African soldiers who died in the Second World War. Over 334,000 men volunteered for full time service in the South African Army. During 6 years of the Second World War, 11,023 of these South African soldiers, seamen and airmen, died. We have almost double that many people being murdered, every year, during peace time in South Africa.
War is Hell, Peace Under the ANC is Worse
In the First World War, South Africa lost over 12,452 soldiers who were killed, in four and a half years of the World War. Yet we have more than 20,000 murdered every single year, during peace time, in ANC-ruled South Africa today.
A Deadly Peace
During the 26 years Border War in South West Africa and Angola, the South African Defence Force lost under 650 men in combat. Yet, in the last 26 years of peace, under ANC-rule in South Africa, more than 3,000 farmers and their wives and children have been brutally murdered, frequently tortured to death.
We are involved in a war. It is a communist revolutionary war. It is a terrorist war. A war of nerves. Psychological warfare.
A Battle Over History
As Karl Marx declared: “The first battlefield is the re-writing of history.” That is why Marxists seek to rename streets and cities. To replace libraries. To rewrite textbooks. To pull down monuments. It is a battle for hearts, minds and souls. A battle for our Faith, families and future. Civilisation itself is under attack and at risk. We need to know our history.
Know Your Enemy and Recognise His Tactics
We also need to understand how Revolutions work. Marxist tactics include: “corrupt and conquer;” “confuse, divide and conquer.” They use the Race Card. They use intimidation and bullying tactics. Marxists seek to weaponize words and, with toxic terminology, victimise the villains and villainize the victims. They poison the well of public discussion.
Expendable Cannon Fodder
Marxists demonise white farmers and they lie to, deceive, brainwash and manipulate what they call “useful idiots” as the expendable cannon fodder for the Revolution. It is unlikely that any of the BLF/EFF/ANC mobs rioting in the streets, or campaigning against farmers, understand that they are being lied to and used for an agenda that will impoverish them and lead to greater suffering.
Yesterday’s Liberator Becomes Tomorrow’s Tyrant or Target
But a study of Revolutions in history makes it clear that the mobs on the streets end up far worse, starving and oppressed under the Revolutionaries than they ever were before “liberation.” Most of the French Revolutionaries ended up on the same guillotine that they had condemned the bourgeois to. Most of those involved in the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 were purged (murdered) by Joseph Stalin, including the “hero of the Revolution,” Leon Trotsky, the head of the Red Army during the Civil War. Trotsky got axed, literally, at the hands of Stalin’s NKVD. It was the same in the Revolution in Red China. The highest leaders in the Communist Party and Peoples Liberation Army ended up executed under Mao Tse Tung’s Cultural Revolution. Mugabe murdered Josiah Tongogara, the commander of the ZANLA guerrilla army and firm favourite to be first president of Zimbabwe. Machel had Eduardo Mondlane, founding president of Frelimo, assassinated. Winnie Mandela maintained that Chris Hani, head of the SA Communist Party, was assassinated as part of an “inside job” to remove the obvious favourite for Deputy President of the ANC and to make way for Thabo Mbeki to be Mandela’s successor. Revolutionaries always end up murdering their own.
The Second Phase of the Revolution
Attacking farmers has been in the forefront of the Second Phase of the Revolution: during the French Revolution of 1789; the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917; the Chinese Revolution of 1949; the Mozambique Revolution; the Zimbabwe Revolution; the Ethiopian Revolution; the Cuban Revolution and in so many others. In the Soviet Union they called it Dekulakisation. In Red China, they called it the Cultural Revolution. In Zimbabwe it was called Land Reform. In South Africa it is called Expropriation Without Compensation.
Communist Revolutionaries Hate Self Sufficient Free People
Farmers are the backbone of any society’s ability to feed themselves. Farmers, by their very nature, are resilient, independent, can-do entrepreneurs, who are not dependent on government. They “make a plan.” It is absolutely essential for any economy to have a strong agricultural base. This is why Marxist Revolutionaries target agriculture in the Second Phase of the Revolution.
Farmers Are in the Frontline of the Fight for the Future
The Marxist goal in the first phase of the Revolution, is to seize control of the political levers of power. The second phase of the Revolution is to gain control over a country economically, culturally, socially and in every other way. Marxist Revolutionaries do not want people who can think for themselves, feed themselves, be independent and self-reliant. This is why farmers are in the very frontline of the fight for Faith, families and the future.
Strategies to Safeguard Farmers
So, what successful strategies can we use to safeguard farmers from Revolutionary terrorist Attacks?
Recognise the Roots of the Revolution
I was raised in Rhodesia, served in the South African Defence Force and, as a missionary, I have been involved in 8 wars and 3 Revolutions. It is clear to me that South Africa is involved in the Second Phase of the Revolution. We need to understand our enemy. We need to understand the threat. We need to know our history and recognise that the terrorists who are targeting farmers, torturing their families and seeking to murder the food suppliers of this country, have been motivated and mobilised by fake news and fake history. They have been brainwashed and indoctrinated.
Comprehend the Strategic Situation
Back in 1994, when Nelson Mandela became president, South Africa had 70,000 white commercial farmers, who were feeding 100 million people. At that time, South Africa had only 28 million people, so most of that food was exported to feed Southern and Central Africa. Today, we have less than 30,000 white commercial farmers and they are feeding 40 million people. However, South Africa’s population has doubled in the last 26 years and today we have over 60 million people. Therefore, South Africa has had to become a food importer to survive. No longer are we feeding all our own people, nor can we feed much of Southern and Central Africa anymore.
Basic to any war, is accurate information. We need to disconnect from the fake news of SATV, CNN, BBC, Newspeak 24 and other shallow, repetitive mouthpieces for Marxist disinformation. We need to subscribe to and support reliable, honest sources for news. This is what the Henry Morton Stanley School of Christian Journalism was set up to assist in. From the Frontline; Christian Action Magazine; Frontline News; World Magazine and Assist News. You will find these and many other good sources recommended on the www.hmsschoolofchristianjournalism.org website. We also need to ensure that our children are not being indoctrinated by state schools and state textbooks. We need education which teaches us how to think critically, not state-mandated indoctrination which teaches one what to think. “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…” Hosea 4:6
“If My people who are called by My Name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14. Prayer is not an alternative to action. Prayer is a foundation for feet on the ground, practical action. There is a time to pray and there is a time to act. Unfortunately, many today try to negate the need for practical, bold and brave action. There are those who say: “All you can do is pray!” That is not true. In the Bible, God rebuked Joshua for praying after the defeat at Ai. “So, the Lord said to Joshua: ‘Get up! Why do you lie thus on your face?…Israel has sinned and they have also transgressed My Covenant which I commanded them… Get up, sanctify the people’…” Joshua 7:10-13. There is a time to pray and there is a time to act. Unfortunately, many super spiritual individuals tend to use prayer as an excuse for disobedience, inactivity and passivity. Prayer is not an alternative to obedient action. It is a foundation for bold and Biblical, feet on the ground, action. We must do everything we possibly can and only then may we trust God for what we cannot do. Trust and obey. Prayer and action.
Action is needed. We need to be informed: Read. We need to be interceding: Pray. We need to be involved: Act. Use your social media to speak up for farmers and campaign for self-determination, a Referendum for Secession, independence for the Cape of Good Hope. Mobilise friends, family and neighbours.
Beware of Extremist Reactions
We have two extreme reactions amongst our people. There are those who say there is “No problem!” Ignoring the facts, denying reality, many have their proverbial head in the sand. Much of the population has the Stockholm Syndrome. Apparently, depending on SATV for their news, brainwashed by state indoctrination in the schools, many gaslighted victims have psychologically aligned themselves with their sworn enemies. The other extreme, are those who declare: “There is no hope!”; “There is nothing anyone can do!”; “Nothing will work!” and “All we can do is flee!”
Recognise the Threat
Both of these extremes are wrong. Of course, there is a serious problem. Marxist Revolutionaries control the government of South Africa and they have declared, for all the world to hear, that they intend to Expropriate farms Without Compensation. We have political leaders who dance and sing: “Bring me my machine gun!”; “Kill the Boer, kill the farmer!” As Ernst Roets has documented in his book: Kill the Boer, the state is complicit in this campaign of farm terrorism.
Put on the Whole Armour of God
However, there most certainly is hope. “Greater is God who is in us than him who is in the world”; “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”; “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” Light is stronger than darkness. Truth is more powerful than lies and deception. “We are more than conquers through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Socialism is self-destructive. Bolshevism always bankrupts itself. Communism always fails. The history of Russia demonstrates the failure of atheism and the triumph of Faith. I have been in many churches that were confiscated and destroyed by Marxists, later to be recaptured, restored and rebuilt, in Mozambique, in Angola, in Sudan, in Romania, in Albania.
The Gates of Hell Shall Not Prevail
Jesus Christ is building His Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Harden your target. Secure your homes. Train your children. Be networked with your neighbours. Form Self-Defence Units, local Commandos.
Forewarned is Forearmed
Obtain the Security and Survival Handbook for practical case studies and workable solutions to protect your home, farm, church and community from terrorism.
Understand the Times
Obtain Sketches from South African History, also available in Afrikaans. Ensure that your children know our history.
Resistance and Resilience
Refuse to be intimidated.
Never give in.
Never give up.
We need to be armed.
We need to be prepared.
We need to be alert.
Fight crime. Shoot back.
It has been proven that criminals are less likely to repeat the crime after they have been shot.
We either go down with the S.A. Titanic,
or we launch out in a free and independent Cape of Good Hope!
Free the Cape.
