SA: Afrikaners expect ethnic-cleansing campaign - soonDate Posted: Monday 21-Jan-2008PRETORIA, South Africa. The ongoing debate about the country's Afrikaner minority's security problems on the site of the Pro-Afrikaans Action Group (PRAAG) is increasingly concentrated on the growing threats targetting Afrikaners, with racist murders and hate-speech increasing against their community.
Many of these Afrikaner bloggers also believe that since the ANC 's leadership battles erupted last December, there have been more incidents of hate-speech and racist attacks targetting members of the Afrikaner community.
This week the civil rights group AfriForum even lodged a formal charge against ANC parliamentarian Chauke at the SA Human Rights Commission for allegedly inciting race-hatred targetting their community in protests surrounding the Skielik squatter camp shooting of 10 people - 4 of whom died -- and for which a local Afrikaner farmer's son was arrested.
Contributors to PRAAG also expected that the hate-speech would increase due to the near-collapse of the country's once so excellent and cheap electricity network, which now is steadily collapsing upon itself due to the regime's black-economic empowerment laws. Fears are that the ANC-regime and their supporters may also start using the Afrikaners as the most convenient scapegoats for this growing disaster.
The country already has had to cut off its electricity supplies to neighbouring Mozambique and Zimbabwe this week and Pres. Thabo Mbeki is being blamed widely for his refusal several years ago to pump more funding into the parastatal supplier ESKOM for much-needed improvements to its infrastructure.

"IT IS STARTING" ...
""First they will blame the collapse of the electricity network on apartheid.
"Then things will become more ominous, and they will start blaming it on a mysterious third force.
"We can soon expect lots of articles about the Boeremag, the Suidlanders and many other Westerners' ominous plans - just to transfer the blame."...
See the article "commuters burns trains" for instance..."
PRAAG is the publisher of the Afrikaner language-activist Dr Dan Roodt's book "The Scourge of the ANC:"
