WASHINGTON – When President Nelson Mandela took power in South Africa after apartheid, he proclaimed “each of us is as intimately attached to the soil of this beautiful country as are the famous jacaranda trees of Pretoria and the mimosa trees of the bushveld – a rainbow nation at peace with itself and the world.”

Over a decade later, the “rainbow nation” of South Africa is unraveling at an alarming rate, as race relations deteriorate and white farmers face genocidal levels of violence.

Since the 1990s, between 2,000 and 4,000 farmers have been murdered.

White South African farmers are several times more likely to be killed than South African police officers or even American soldiers serving in Iraq.

“Often, they only count the farmer and not his wife and children that were also attacked or murdered,” South African missionary Charl Van Wyk told WND in an interview.

The omission is intentional “manipulation” of the data by the South African government, and such subterfuge makes it impossible to know the true extent of the attacks on white South African farmers, he said.

The sheer brutality of the murders cannot be overstated. Farmers are often tortured before being killed. One white South African woman was tied up, stabbed and burned with a blowtorch.

Other reports of the torture of white farmers include rape and attacks with power drills, boiling water and hot irons.

According to the Australian news website news.com.au, human rights groups believe the brutality of the attacks is meant to send a message to white farmers: “Get out of our country.”

Now some high-profile figures are calling for the United States to accept white South Africans as refugees, including Ann Coulter as well as Van Wyk, a Christian missionary who saved scores of lives by using a handgun to return fire after African nationalist terrorists attacked his church in 1993.

Van Wyk told his story in “Shooting Back: The Right and Duty of Self Defense.”

Coulter tweeted last month that “the only real refugees” in the world are “white South African farmers facing genocide.”

Van Wyk agrees that President Trump should open up the United States for white South African refugees.

“They serve God, they’re hard workers and they believe their work ethic shows their love of God,” Van Wyk told WND.

Journalist Alex Newman, a former resident of South Africa, believes that the extent of violence against whites in South Africa is truly of “genocidal” proportions.

“What’s happening there now is just monstrous beyond words,” said Newman. “I think genocide is a very appropriate term to use there.”

He pointed out that the president of South Africa, Jacob Zuma, has announced, for instances, a scheme to steal land owned by whites without compensation.

“This will be terrible not just for the owners of the farms, but for the entire country. We don’t even have to speculate about what will happen, we can just look north to Zimbabwe. This will be a disaster for all South Africans, not just the direct victims of the state-backed thievery,” Newman told WND.

Newman was referring to radical revisions to the South African constitution under consideration by mainstream politicians, including allowing the expropriation of white-owned land without any recompense.

“We need to accept the reality that those who are in parliament where laws are made, particularly the black parties, should unite because we need a two-thirds majority to effect changes in the constitution,” Zuma said.

A similar policy completely destroyed the agricultural output of neighboring Zimbabwe, forcing authorities to allow certain white farmers to return.

In 2014, the BBC reported Zimbabwe’s dictator, Robert Mugabe, told an audience, “We say no to whites owning our land and they should go.”

Just a year later, Mugabe’s people announced that white farmers could return to farms “of strategic economic importance,” according to Quartz Africa.

The cultural heritage of white South Africans is also at risk, as student protesters around the country campaign to destroy monuments to white South Africans and any other representation of white South African culture.

Last year, University of Cape Town black students ransacked the dining hall on campus, stealing near century-old paintings of white South Africans and burning them in the street.

Protesters torched vehicles and even fire-bombed the office of the university’s vice-chancellor.

According to City Press, a South African media outlet, protesters barred white and Indian students from entering the university dining hall, denying them access to food.

Through all this violence and blatant racism, South African authorities and politicians refuse to respond to the attacks on white South Africans and even encourage them.

Last week,a South African judge ruled that posters bearing the words “F*** White People” were not hate speech or racist.

The judge declared white people may feel hurt by the posters but should, “Learn to f*** the white in you, too.”

Zuma was filmed singing “Kill the Boer” along other African National Congress (ANC) members in 2010, a song that includes the lyrics “kill the farmer.”

“These songs cannot be regarded as hate speech or unconstitutional,” ANC Secretary General Gwede Mantashe said in response to subsequent outrage. “Any judgment that describes them as such is impractical and unimplementable.”
