"We know now that they were following us for about a month. Cry To our we did. Notice strange things happening. But when you're working underground you are. For most of the time, you're a bit paranoid you. You kind of imagine that everyone is looking at you knows what you're doing. And looking back off to the arrest. We realized that they were following us for quite a while. In Nineteen Seventy, eight, twenty, nine year, old Tim Jenkin was active in the political efforts of South Africa's anti-apartheid movement. The country had been operating under apartheid for thirty years. A system that institutionalized racial segregation. The word apartheid means a partner. and. The government was controlled by white minority. Tim Jenkin White. He grew up in Cape Town. So I grew up under the situation with everything was divided. So. spatially, cities and towns divided the white areas. Black areas. So we went to white schools. Were black schools in black areas. Everything was separated even buildings had separate lifts for White People. For Black People. Talk said benches, white people and black people and certain beaches with designated for black. People. Most of the beaches with what people So. I just accepted eight. Because I didn't know any better I just assumed that the way things were. And then. Maneuver Twenty one years old the to the K.. He says, everyone he met their asked him what he thought about the fact that he lived in a country that was so racially segregated. He says he was actually confused. But then he started seeing programs on TV. Shows that would never have been broadcast in South Africa about the consequences of apartheid and at first I, didn't believe these These films that I was seeing. I thought it was all propaganda. After awhile, and after reading books that I couldn't obtain in South Africa. I began to realize the started thing is something quite terrible. I'd be living. Positive it. Really maintaining it in the sense and not understanding. What's Black South Africans? was suffering. He, returned to South Africa, and started studying sociology at the University of Cape Town. There, he became friends with another white student named. Stephen Lee. And started cheering books that he had brought back from the UK. anti-apartheid. Books and political histories that were censored in South Africa. At. This time the most prominent anti-apartheid organization was the African National Congress also known as the ANC. Nelson Mandela was a member of the ANC. By the nineteen seventies, the organization was banned in South Africa that had been declared unlawful. Seen by the White Minority Threat to. Public. Order. They operated underground and Tim and Stephen had heard that if you wanted to get involved, you could try contacting their office in. London. So the two of US traveled to the. UK. and. Simply went and knocked on the door. and. It was quite an amusing. Incident. because. The person who received US Said please just sit down there and you'll be wasted. Then he went into his office and type something on a piece of paper. The piece of paper said. You should not come here. Please meet me at the cafe around the corner in half an hour. So that's what we did. Tim and Stephen met with members of the ANC several times. And they asked to be put to work back home in south? Africa, the said Okay you can go back and sit up your print shop. And we'd need to teach you various things like security matters, how to conduct yourself in the underground. And showed us a few other. Innovative. Devices for for distributing leaflets and information one of these was. The is the leaflet bomb. It's not really a bomb. It was really just. Kind of exploding device. That would kill. Hundreds of leaflets up into the air, and then they would rain down on a crowd target crowd somewhere. So we went back to South Africa. With this knowledge. And set up shop.

It's complicated: Zimbabweans see Mugabe's legacy as mixed

"Former president of zimbabwe robert mugabe has died at the age of ninety five. He was is a schoolteacher turned guerrilla fighter who helped to topple white rule in zimbabwe. Only to then lead the country to the brink of economic ruin his successor president emerson managua said in a message on twitter quote commander mugabe was an icon of liberation a pan africanist who dedicated his life to the emancipation and empowerment norman of his people his contribution to the history of our nation will never be forgotten our deputy africa bureau chief gabrielle steinhaeuser is in capetown so gabrielle. Tell me a bit more about how mr mugabe ended up in power so mugabe came to power in nineteen eighty initially as prime minister of zimbabwe <hes> having sort of liberated his country from the british and and and also white minority government that followed and in his his first few years he really kept warm relations with his predecessor they would regularly have t- you know and he i think he was was honored by the british and he will succeed as this and of enlightenment need a he was a schoolteacher. You know he was educated. He we build a very strong education system zimbabwe but you right that the way he'll be remembered is a bit more complicated. I think it's a bit of a complicated legacy. I would say for most imbaba winds. They will remember him for the brutality and economic hardship of his final decades in power where the economy really spiraled and off any kind of opposition was brutally repressed but then you know you have other leaders in africa who really especially here in south africa really remember him for the support he gave them in their old liberation struggle so we had a very sort of hard shelled message from the ruling party the african national congress in south africa so the lauding him for his contribution to bringing the an and to apartheid and how is zimbabwe doing now. It's actually a really kind of sad adds to that because after he finally resigned resigned than i was in harare you know tens of thousands of people just storming the streets in celebration and there was so much optimism not only among zimbabweans but also among western governments who were ready and companies who are keen to engage in an invest. I think what we've seen over the last nearly two in years. There's a lot of that optimism plate fade away so it's hard to kind of look at mugabe's staff this this point to to a story of decline because it seems like the decline unfortunately continues

We should no longer be afraid of this process of having to change the land ownership architecture in our country. It is here and it is here to stay. It is going to happen land.

Remember signor Robert Mugabe went down the same road was he also did in so doing was effectively <unk> demolish. Zimbabwe's agricultural infrastructure femme production plummeted by two thirds in less than a decade and Zimbabwe's economy collapsed alongside to the point where the country had to abandon its hyper inflation stricken currency in two thousand nine.

South Africa is not Zimbabwe's and Cyril Ramaphosa Hosa is not Robert Mugabe but the <hes> some similarities many years after the end of white minority rule things remain extremely tough for many among long South Africa's black majority the unemployment rate in South Africa is a staggering scandalous twenty seven point six percent even higher among youth who.

Nobody is going to buy something if they're not sure they will be allowed to keep it and in fact we have said to those who are investing in no country that they shouldn't have no fear that the land property is going to be expropriated while the proposals of the presidential panel panel commendably constrained they will prompt concerns about these slipperiness of this particular slope they are of the ways to redress economic imbalance and historical injustice.

South Africa graft inquiry exposes ANC divisions

"Today. We're looking at South Africa and its battle against corruption which took a dramatic turn this week with former president Jacob Zuma a cool to testify before commission of inquiry joining me on the line from Johannesburg is correspondent jobs of cultural and here in the studio Africa editor David Pilling David Festival. Could you give us the background. This inquiry is into this idea of state capture. The role of some businessmen called Gupta's. How's it come to this will for a long time? There's been this notion of state capture which is really South African phrase or it's become a kind of Motif in South Africa really a term that denotes mass corruption the hollowing out of some some of South Africa's most important institutions in the idea that they've been kind of sold to the highest bidder including the family mentioned the Gupta's who are very close to Jacob Zuma when he was president this in the sense of the moment that everyone's been waiting for this has been ongoing testimony from from various people who are involved her accused or who have evidence but this is really the man who is said to be at the sense of the Fulcrum the man who innocence is alleged to have sold the presidency and really sent South Africa which was already having many difficulties really kind of sense it on a very difficult path of low growth corruption loss of faith in the A._N._C.. An government and therefore a lot hangs on this inquiry doesn't it I mean it's not just just about making sure that justice was dumb to some extent the hopes of President Obama poser to correct the course of South Africa to some extent today hang on this inquiry working out to some extent. Yes I mean I think there are two things I mean one. Is this idea that the people who were involved should be punished. Jacob Zuma has been doging what some people would say as justice what he would say as persecution for moving a decade those who think that Zimmer is guilty those who think that he is at the center of something that is corroded the whole South African dream think that unless he somehow punished then we won't be able to move on then there's also cost the kind of evidence that is presented the evidence that is needed to root out corruption from within the A._N._C. and it goes very deep according to most accounts and evidence. That's really needed for Sir. I'm opposed to get a grip on the party and turn it in the direction that he has claimed he wants to turn it into in his electioneering so Joseph this week the commissioner of inquiry weaker very important state with presence Zuma Call to testify how did that go started with classic Jacob Zuma Very Rivera performance as he opened his testimony and gave his side of the story and he said free. Anything's Fussy his enemies in the African National Congress auspice they are saying all of these things about the <unk> because foreign spy agencies which he didn't name but were to be the C._I._A.. Enough is instructed students <unk> and finish off. He said people trying to kill him. People have sent suicide bombers <unk> after him people trying to poison him so it's very dramatic but since then and the days the photoed he's deflated a bit as we've got into the nuts and bolts of enquiries questioning the inquiry has put to him specific allegations civilisation exits. You told them to lie about the Gupta's Minister Zet made this claim and immune response has been. I don't know I can't remember right and this conspiratorial stuff that he's used. Is there a ready audience written South Africa. Do you think many people will be listening to him and does he still have a financial support quarter. Can maybe prevent him being brought down bonus outside Africa and in most of the population. This does sound absolutely match. He's going back to allegations that date from the nineteen ninety s that the A._n._C. was infiltrated by foreign spies. Zoom himself was a former spy master in the A._N._C.. He claims to have lists of enemies. Were spies. It does sound like it comes from <unk> but there is an audience in G._N._C.. It's not big but it is exists. People do believe there is outside interference in South African and A._N._C. Politics and by that narrative that this position imposed by external forces Suma has not named but in terms of picking away at the credibility of inquiry picking away at the credibility of Roma pauses cleanup effort it works to create that kind of disinformation and David would there are people think within the N._C.. Whose face the tied up with Jacob Zuma so they're not necessarily people who believe in him? I'm sure there are in the wider population especially in KwaZulu Natal but within the A._N._C. There are people who depend on Zuma's version of events prevailing because otherwise otherwise the next nothing. That's quite important because you've got this fight within the A._N._C. and remember Ramaphosa only just won the presidency so you have this fight between these different elements and they've not been able to root out by any means all the the people who were pretty much involved in state capture. Some of them still hold high office if you look at the A._N._C. Network throughout the provinces of South Africa the kind of riddled with people who somehow benefited from a lot of what was going on and so there's a lot of steak and they're able to fight back to some extent on them. They've been able to chuck allegations the Finance Minister Probably Gordon and so on well. That's exactly right. I mean you have this kind of war of words and his war of parallel realities. It's important to note that there is very clear documentation mutation the backs up a lot of these allegations even though some of the investigative services were themselves compromise for example the protects the general to Lee Metal Seller came out with a report with names dates places the Financial Times itself reported reported a story where the then finance minister was offered a bag of money to take over the finance ministry and do various things that would have been off benefit to people connected to this sort of state capture network so I mean there's quite a few smoking guns there. But there's also the possibility especially I think in the world that we live in today of a counterfactual narrative that can be built up and if people arrested in that narrative than it's easy to believe it if their fortunes if their jobs depend on it then of course they'll believe John Beckett right and Joseph how is in broader terms the Ramaphosa effort to write South Africa to put it back on the right track. How's it going eighteen months ago? I think people would have been talking about remote Pouria about this sense that just a mere fact of having someone else in the presidency would unleash foreign investment and bring back South African companies to invest her as well that is not going well the economy's gutting with recession and they're very bad numbers at the beginning of this year. It's GonNa take a long time just because of the extent of the role just to take one example Eskan depowered monopoly which generates navy one of the country's electricity has just been for band patch of quite severe blackouts which obviously done the economy no favours as Davis had that is a smoking gun. One of the biggest intensive corruption under Zuma's rule but Ramaphosa team has been very very slow hello to restructure and s gone back honor bell fitting so that sense of urgency that was there a year and a half ago or Zuma was removed from power than dissipating and is that because the President Ramaphosa of the obstacles faces are larger than he imagined I mean how bad was the situation. He inherited actually we can go back to something. A former minister said at the inquiry about state capture itself which is don't over zoom denies denies it during make it all about Jacob Zuma. This was a much bigger network. The one president that are much more alleged perpetrators than the Gupta's so to route that out of the A._N._C. will be a bigot. It doesn't involve solve the tax collection agency the National Prosecutor even the public protect to David mentions had four against Corruption Zuma Bat has allegedly been captured by the quote unquote fightback so so it's not like things going on one way towards reform. It's a real conducting institutional fight so yes. It's not what about Jacob Zuma legacy so let's just finish by looking at the future both of the A._N._C. itself twelve and of South Africa. David background is that it's known about a battle within the end see the N._C.. The Positive Liberation the Party of Mandela has been losing popularity in their arrivals. Do you think this is an away a last chance for the Nancy and if they fail walk replaces them I think in says it is a less chance I mean you've seen its popularity slide. I think they won't fifty seven percent in this election fifty seven fifty eight and it would have been much lower had not been for the remedy fauria affect that Joseph referred to there is disillusion in the A._n._C. as a kind of typical liberation party which of course it never was seen as it was seen as this great transformer of the Rainbow Nation but it's unfortunately in many people's is gone on the way of other post-independence liberation movements got a monopoly on power and therefore abused its power. The one thing you're saying is that the South African economy which had been growing before Jacob Zuma five and six percents a year at least giving. Some room to do some of the social changes that the A._N._C. has promised to do an is the legacy of apartheid that does need to be addressed but with no growth with recession. There's just nothing to play with and in the end I think unless unless the A._N._C. can sought out its internal divisions standouts corruption at least to a certain extent and get the economy moving again then we will proceed at one pacer another in one direction that will be that the A._N._C.'s majority will old slipped below fifty percents. We'll move into coalition government. I didn't think we'RE GONNA lose the A._N._C. and power for quite a long time but you can see the A._N._C.'s total monopoly on power fading and in some people's eyes that would be no bad thing but some of the political forces I mean there are liberal democratic forces but they're also more left wing nationalist forces led by me and someone who might profit they're both you know there's a party to the right of the A._N._C. which believes in much more free market liberal economy of vessel but might be recognizable say in Europe but there's also a policy that basically says that the Liberation Movement in one thousand nine hundred four has been betrayed that is rallying around questions like nationalization of land or expropriation of land or that compensation because the the truth of South Africa the big truth that's looking behind all of this is that the disparity of income between the largely white population but with now black middle classes prospered on the one side and then a great divide with the rest of the black population that has really been left behind in his almost as far behind as it was under apartheid. That's the background and that's the social pressure that is behind a lot of this in which the A._N._C. in internal struggles in its moral corrosion is really unable to address and Joseph to finish the time I was in South Africa one did hear this phrase state capture but also some people muttering about state failure the sense that if this couldn't be turn round South Africa was really quite serious trouble and it statuses is the most advanced economy in Africa was under threat as we speak the army has been deployed in South Africa's Western Cape Aware Capetown is because of crime being so bad in townships around South Africa's second city not so as indicates for failure buses capture. I think that's a fad point to make state. Capture focused on major state companies focused on the Finance Ministry the very top of the state intensive allegedly the diverting resources to people Gupta's but from below rivers issues Davis has just been talking about basic service to the water at Trinity. I mentioned Eskom. Thurs indicates is old flagging as well. I I mean look at the end of the day of roughly infrastructure is miles edge of many countries on the continent on remains sir but this sense of urgency that was eighteen months ago about undoing nor anything capture but also bringing economic stagnation to an end Indorama poser that message has lost a bit amid the continued inflicting in the A._N._C. so that risk of failure stood

Tarnished ANC seeks re-election in South Africa

"It's been twenty five years in South Africans voted in the first democratic election, then the African National Congress almost sixty percent of the votes next Wednesday on may eight South Africans will vote again. But this time the eighties image has been tarnished. And they will struggle to get anywhere near sixty percent of the vote. Joining me on the line from Johannesburg his of cultural, the F T, South Africa correspondent and within the as David pulling FT's Africa editor Joseph what are the toll sending us? The poster telling us that this will be the most competitive election in South Africa's post-apartheid democratic history. But that does not mean the agency's majority which has kept for twenty five years is in any real danger most posters. Most analysts believe the ANC will probably get a majority all fifty five to sixty percent. That said the most recent poll by the institute of Rhys relations. I think tank in South Africa has put the D one percent support assuming tunnel of about seventy two percent. That is a bit of a shocker it's never been that close before an action. So innocence, we all into new territory, David, you recently rotate rollicking lunch with the teacher and beween either South African Finance Minister Winnie or squad plaintively in that interview. What did people expect NC to achieve in twenty five years? A quarter of a century is not an insignificant amount of time is the simply refusing to take responsibility or is there merit in. What in bologna said? I think as usual with these questions the answer is is. Yes, or no, I think certainly the NC takes responsibility for the last nine years of Jacob Zuma when it became an increasingly corrupt party bereft of policies was not producing any growth. Even before that. I think it's been slow to produce the kind of social transformation. The South African particularly black South Africans expected. It's been a part of this created a pretty thin middle class an Israeli kept everyone else happy on kind of social welfare payments. And it was once said to me that the ANC actually become the party of the unemployed, and there is some truth to that. However, we should also acknowledge the poisonous legacy overpass site, which has been extraordinarily difficult to overcome. This wasn't like a normal African country that booted out white colonialists and could then get on with the job. And of course, many black African countries have not done, particularly well at that either. But this was a society that was hugely divided along racial lines. One only needs to look at the school system the school system that was actually literally divided on racial lines. When the apartheid education policy was to keep black students of Hugh is of wood and drawers of water a deliberate policy to keep them poor. Or an uneducated. And now that's really been replaced by an education system, where access to money is everything. Now, again, the ANC has not done nearly as well at improving the public education system as it should have done, and I would say that that's huge failing. So they're in in a sense in nutshell. You have the enormous poisonous legacy that the NC is grappling with and some of the very real failings that I think, you know, we can point a finger and say, yes, the ANC a party in which we had tremendous hope twenty five years ago has not lived up to experts stations Joseph David touched on one of the greatest problems with NC, and it was the reign of Jacob Zuma. And it's been argued that if Cyril Ramaphosa exceeds expectations and wins a big majority next week he'll have the power to turf out soon as cronies and tackle groups property, but is a slightly given his tolerance of some very questionable characters in both his cabinets and within the ANC hierarchy the first thing to bear in mind. Is that suffer is a parliamentary system, sir? Ramaphosa won't be directly elected. What will happen after the general election is parliament over for the president overseas? NC's hoping that will be where I'm opposed, but the dilemma for South African vote is if you don't like the ANC which has been taken over by cronies of Jacob Zuma who occupy quite senior policy positions, even though that patron is long gone from the presidency. You've got cross dot nine DNC to get what will hope for the I reformist agenda under Ramaphosa speaking of twos in the most days before the elections. But I think he has done a pretty good job in the years since he's taken over from Jacob Zuma, the has replaced people in state institutions, which declined under his predecessor. But they do have a lot of skepticism about the constraints that will be on him within the NC beyond the election. David's South Africa's the most unequal society earth, and that gap has. One and agency rule. Critics claim that black economic empowerment and ANC policy has benefited a few politically connected blacks, while the rest of the black majority just gets poorer official unemployment is twenty-seven percent. But in reality is probably closer to forty percents is unemployment and inequality ticking time bomb for South Africa and the NC. Yes, I think it is. I mean, we've seen all over Africa youth unemployed rising up we saw it. Most recently in a sense in sedan with Basheer was booted out. I mean in a sense of South African population has been very patient. But I don't think that can go on forever. 'cause the problem is that you have these two economies you have what Martin wolf once called bell. India? You have a very wealthy white economy. This inherited the end of apartheid surrounded by very poor black one and trying to bridge that gap is not particularly easy because you have a black population. That wants an expects the living standards of those that sees around them in the white minority. And yet, they lack the productivity and skills generally through absoulutely, no fault of their own, of course to achieve that. And that is the real crux of the dilemma that any economic social and political policy has to crack does that open the door for dude. Melinda and his economic freedom flashes. Yes. Indeed. It does to an extent and we've seen that they have been popular. I mean, they've partly been popular because they were seen as a party that really took on Jacob Zuma. When no one else really was. And they've also since then, of course, adopted the land issue, which is a very sort of fiery issue that really appeals to people's emotions. But what I think the F F really appeals to is the notion that at the end of apartheid, and the black majority in South Africa was promised a far better standard of living and a beginning of bridging the gap with a privileged minority. What you've got as you've said is you've had the creation of a black middle. Class, but a relatively thin a narrow one, and although black living standards. I don't think it's true they've gone backwards. They have improved in real terms. The gap is still very much

"Great news everybody thanks to advances in medicine, you, may, live, longer, than, on, foreign, policy experts if you were, a CEO. Of a multinational and you needed to. Know how long it was going to be before South Africa's started taking back the farms, of white on farmers which. By the way it started you, see about that South Africa has nationalize the first two white owned farms and it's just the beginning They're just just like just like happened, in Zimbabwe the former Rhodesia Under the dictatorial rule of Robert Mugabe what they think it's just making amends for all these past. Transgressions at the farm should never have been white on the. Offer Connors are a minority and they should. Never have the power so now. They're just gonna take these farms the re these. First two farms the, owners were offered ten percent. Of the value Yeah me owners of the farms Told the African. National, Congress where to put it The, African National Congress okay we're gonna put it there but then we're gonna take your farm and we're going. To put your farm near, and they've done it they've taken the first anyway if if it six months and you want to Henry Kissinger, to tell you when that was. Going to happen it cost you, a million, bucks and everybody working. At Kissinger's from of course had a security clearance what it means is you have access to inside foreign policy and intelligence information So if you're John Brennan director of the CIA you continue to get, all that stuff even after you. Leave orifice and anybody who has, one that's, that's the way they. And they are they are as I say folks they are huge huge status Things, status attachments And it's a real embarrassment to lose one it is this what Trump did in taking away. Brennan security clearance there may be nothing more effectively, harmful John Brennan and Trump doing that And now Brennan's associates are worried that Brennan's. Going to blow it for everybody if, he follows through on the suit which I don't think he will do Because it would. Open up the scullery emails all all, kinds of things that Brennan doesn't want Anybody know about here's a story Clapper Said yesterday he thinks that John Brennan's rhetoric is. Becoming an issue in and of itself Clapper was, on state of. The union on CNN which pays him white was there Clapper has security. Clearance CNN thought that, was a value so by the way Clapper's the guy who engineered the leak of the news that James call me had told Trump about the, golden showers aspect of the Trump dossier and he. Leaked to CNN which ran the. Story they got. A big journalism award they hired Clapper, it's an incestuous circle And Clapper said yeah John. Subtle like a freight train that. He's gonna say. What's on his mind Translation we. All hate that Trump was elected despite our best efforts so we all want to bring him down but you. Have to disguise your hate and your agenda a little bit more subtly, than, Brennan is, for now the other big news over the, weekend was or is That one of the early members of Trump's White House legal team Don. Mcgann has spoken for thirty hours to the special counsel Thirty hours. And and essentially the White House doesn't know what McCain said And of course what is going on here let me do that It's a big long New York Times. Story and what they're trying to do is get Trump on obstruction the point of the story is is, they want us to believe that Trump. Was trying to fire Mueller but that Mcgann. Was heroically stepping in At. Each moment Trump wanted to do this and stopping him from doing it and they're trying to then say that Trump wanting to fire Mueller. Is the same thing as Trump firing Muller and that then equals obstruction the problem is, Trump has not fired, Muller Trump has not, instructed any probably couldn't be guilty of obstructing anyway because he. Would be doing nothing more than carrying out presidential prerogatives but the point of that story in the New, York when you strip it all away They want you to believe that Trump wanted was tried there is no trying You run the executive? Branch your president how do you try. How do you try to fire Mueller it's what I. Explained this to me How do? I try to do show prep every? Day I don't try I do it It's not like. Come, in here yeah I was trying to do show prep at the phone kept ringing yeah I was trying? To do show prep Snerdley came in. And heroic. Prevented me from doing what is this, you either do it or you don't you're not there's no presidential trying the fire anybody but the New York, Times is desperate to, try to use Mcgann to suggest that Trump wanted to? Fire Mueller even. Though he hasn't And they're creating as best they can, the is in the minds of people that that Trump has obstructed or wanted to which means he could be, found guilty of it I think there's much more than that going on with this you know why would, Mcgann talk for thirty hours to the special counsel You know you've heard me say you've heard. Me say, many times on this program that I have been very puzzled By solve the early, staffing choices the president made and I think without naming a whole lot of names I think Trump made the. Mistake choosing people from inside the beltway thinking that might be a way of taming all the opposition to him there and it was a mistake because there. Is no taming and by. Hiring people from the swamp by, hiring people who are not necessarily hate or, oppose Trump that's not what I'm saying but if you're in the swamp if you live, and work, in the establishment that's where your loyalties are ultimately going to be because Trump is gonna come and go In whatever period. Of time Trump is gonna come and go and after Trump has gone you don't want to go with it you need to hold onto your status in. Your position in the swamp. And Mcgann is a swamp he, that's that's that's where he's grown up his, career is and so Trump is is original lawyers were not warriors we're not warrior lawyers Is original, lawyers may in fact have been like the early days of the GOP house leadership thought Trump did collude with. Russia and and thought that, Trump wasn't going to survive and so. The the objective here was to limit the damage but they weren't aggressive they weren't pushing back they were. Not relying. On the constitution executive power. To assert privilege and prominence for the, President Donald Trump in all things. In the executive branch And they were playing defense when Muller is is, appointed then everybody even. Got more frightened WalMart. Goja we don't want to upset the oh Jews we don't want to do anything could be, looked like instruction or collusion so everything was defensive Now they've got some different people, in there, now and it's not the way. It was but Trump didn't get a. Warrior attorney general either Some of the. Earliest staffing decisions may be coming back to. Bite him in a in a in a small way anyway there's a lot more on this, I'm just setting a table with right now I Limbaugh Way.

Justice at all South Africa's ruling African National Congress has targeted one, hundred and thirty nine farms now that they're expropriating they're just taking them away for white. People without compensation in the next couple of weeks and they say it's in. Line with section twenty five of the country's constitution that's the one that Ruth Bader Ginsburg thought was such a, great constitution that she would look on? My gosh that is right was all about right. She forgot about, that clip, all about human rights and so that's That's why some being covered now because. It's all about human rights all about the destruction I'm telling you guys I'm. Telling you you have to learn about Postmodernism because it explains everything absolutely everything I meant to look it up, this week 'cause you keep mentioning it? I don't know what the hell it is and. So I forgot But I'm going to do. That you need to You know maybe come in sometime this week, and we can just talk about it because I if you understand that you understand why this is okay to people, why people who are on the very, far left why they believe this. Would be okay Because you would say I would say hey apartheid we covered. That and we should have covered that. And it. Was really. Good, when we cover people of any race. Being, rounded up or killed. Or you, know being squashed right right so it's just another race of people doing it to another race of people I don't, care what race it is it's bad it's wrong, Nope not in this case because of Postmodernism well it's, so bad. There I mean they've already they've already, attacked white farmers a lot and have maimed them and have killed them and have taken farms and, they've got, another to. Death in the furniture and the, death in, the barns are in their houses horrific stories if you want to read about it, I don't know why you would unless you just want to know what's going on in the world but it's it's, horrific then they sent out this tweet That said the biggest, this was from the African National Congress they tweeted, out the biggest, mistake, we're, making is to consult murderers white people or nine. Percent of the population they own seventy nine percent of the land they never came in consulted, us for the, land if, they? Want. To for if they want us to forgive them now then let us share. The land the mineral resources okay so. They essentially. Called all. White, people murderers because that's who they're talking. About, consulting and people would. Nuts on, Twitter in this at all we just tweeted out somebody who was in the congress who said that okay well you, didn't attributed to anybody you didn't put any quotation, marks on it you didn't put that you're re tweeting, it you. Know it just came from the African, National Congress and if anybody doesn't think this is just going to end into a massive race war, and and, and the. Slaughterhouse holy cost of white people Look what happened to Portland we were just talking about this have you really have you read the story about what. Happened in Portland crazy okay It is because of the mayor yeah. Just a limousine going on I, don't like ice and so they're not gonna get any help from. Me, they took hostages in? A federal building they took federal. Agents as hostages and nothing happened is amazing how little we heard of? That. Too It's almost nothing about that we. Heard him they left behind you know. Why do you know who's sponsoring, them you know who's supporting them who democratic socialist of course yeah Care I, mean, jeez that's why that's why they're politically totally. Fine it's the same thing that is happening in a bigger on a bigger scale or more troubling scale in South, Africa it's it's. Fine it's, fine totally. Fine take. It they did it White people did it why people are responsible for apartheid, they have come. Into them, didn't we. Say that. That was wrong We all. Agree that that was awesome, Mendeleev say that was wrong didn't he Remember remember? Meeting. With the guy that got? Nelson Mandela out of jail the, white guy yeah you, remember what he said? You remember how. What he said when, Nelson Mandela met what was his name it wasn't cleric was, it the the the head of the? The white party in. In South Africa I think it was clerk was it, I think send remember he said he said he was. There and he said not a lot. Of people, knew this at the. Time I don't, know if they do now he said but I was there and he. Said Nelson, Mandela came and nobody knew what Nelson. Mandela was going to do I mean he could have started a race war it could have. Been just massive blood should have been, total revenge and cleric. Could have done the same thing could. Have just said get the, army go And he was very. Tense and he said Nelson Mandela walked into the room and remember he said he got down. On his knees in front of cleric, and said brother please I have I have no animosity towards you have. None towards me, you have, the chance right now. To join me and set things right and fix this through peace and he was on, his, knees It's amazing. Story yeah. Amazing and cleric did he joined him and it was. They set out to reconciliation until this new president came in and said, reckons his quote reconciliation is. Over time has passed for reconciliation Yeah that's that's revenge We mentioned several. Times how politically we're we couldn't be. Further from, Nelson Mandela I mean he, was socialist communist he but but as far as a man is for his for his country and, for his fellow men he was same level same thing. With, Martin Luther, King yeah I mean Martin Luther, King towards the end I think he was moving. Right, towards socialism communism Seems like it seems like it. I. Don't know, for sure I mean he's dead, I don't know does not yeah but who knows Doesn't matter when it. Comes to how, you behave. In. Situations like that He's, the man so Nelson Mandela so as Gandhi I. Don't agree with Gandhi and. This guy seems to. Be a bad dude he just wanted us guys we just want revenge this guy's a really bad dude So so what happens Unless we intervene I think there's going. To. Be serious bloodshed If I if I were a white farmer. I think I'd be getting for. Getting out of that. Country. And. Now I, believe they can't that's what I've heard yeah yeah I mean we might actually have. To go, his talk to. The Nazarene fund and and see I. Mean I, don't know. I don't think he can get out I mean, I'm not I'm, not excited about getting entangled in other. Messes but I mean I don't know what they're gonna do they're just, going to be slaughtered? And if somebody doesn't help them this what happened in, Zimbabwe it's just going to be ethnic cleansing Zimbabwe's a, really clear parallel, here whereas exactly the same took away. The the land from the white, farmer and the gliding they're black who, did the did the? Mugabe who was a yeah so yeah And. And, he The big problem there with friends, who were black they, were not farmers but they didn't know how to farm. And what happened.
