FROM BOB'S BLOG: RELIGIOUS LEADERS ROUTINELY SELL YOU OUT | 2004-06-19
June 18, 2004
One reader asked me how I could be so optimistic about a future in which whites are a threatened minority when the Afrikaners have made no resistance at all to black violence when they lost power in and are now a whiny subject people.
Here is my reply
To start with, we South Carolinians DID toss out the black majority backed by Federal troops under Reconstruction after we lost power in he Civil War.
We South Carolinians did not follow our leaders like lambs to the slaughter. Afrikaners VOTED to turn their country over to the blacks! I was there, warning them. They are followers. Their Calvinist Leaders told them to give in, so they did. Now their Calvinist Leaders are getting Nobel Prizes, Board of Directors jobs, and getting the hell out of South Africa. Their followers are getting what all blind followers get in the end.
Preachers and politicians will always sell you out the minute they smell a profit in it.
Afrikaners now see themselves as Damsels in Distress, pure as the driven snow types who trusted in promises and were betrayed.
You can either learn from this that All Is Lost, or you can learn that we must dump our trust in leaders right now.
And, to be frank, they sound a lot like you, "Oh, God, it's all HOPELESS! You can't prove to me there's any hope. All us tough, practical types can do is surrender!"
For me, the Boers (even the ones who live in Johannesburg call themselves that) present white optimists like me the same problem that the Chernobyl disaster did for the American nuclear power industry. It is simply not the same thing, but that is very hard to explain.
