It took time, but we knew that eventually euphoria would turn to murder, looting, raping and finally self destruction. History tells it so. And the final nail in the coffin is waiting for one more hammer to put the patient to rest says (click) Gregory Hood.
The attacks on farms were ominous. For years, there has been widespread violence against white farmers. Journalists and liberals have denied it is happening in a systematic way. Indeed, anyone who mentions the killings is met with outrage. During the riots, farms were not spared.
South Africa’s troubles are not over. There are continuing power shortages. The tension between different racial groups is a permanent part of the “Rainbow Nation.” Just a few weeks ago, Economic Freedom Fighters head Julius Malema blasted an “Indian cabal” that he claimed controls South Africa. The Indians are tools that “white monopoly capital” uses to keep control. The riots highlighted black/Indian tension. Some blacks were furious that Indians were shooting at blacks during the riots. They didn’t care about arresting looters; they wanted police to disarm Indians.
The Wall Street Journal asks if the ANC government will learn the “lessons” of the disaster. It won’t.
This means any measures Mr. Ramaphosa takes to restore economic trust will fuel black radicalism. The EFF will continue to draw support from the left-wing of the governing African National Congress. Jacob Zuma probably won’t stage a comeback, but his long record of anti-white vitriol will attract those who blame inequality for South Africa’s troubles. Whites and Indians will be scapegoats.
The true lesson of South Africa isn’t just that a white-run black country descends into the Third World when blacks take over. We don’t need South Africa or Zimbabwe to show us that. We have American cities.
