A June 15 WorldNetDaily article by Alex Newman (who normally writes for the New American, the magazine published by the far-right John Birch Society, which tells you the standards WND is hiring writers by these days) worries about "the future of increasingly marginalized European-descent South Africans." But the people Newman quotes in support of that view tend to be right-wing extremists.
Hundreds of thousands of economically excluded Afrikaners now live in squalid squatter camps throughout South Africa without so much as running water or electricity.
Hundreds of thousands more have fled to Western nations seeking a better life.
“The advent of black rule has been devastating for whole groups of whites, even highly educated ones,” Dan Roodt of the Pro-Afrikaans Action Group, PRAAG, told WND.
To provide a clue as to where Roodt's racial views lie, he wrote a 2012 article for the white nationalist website American Renaissancein which he approvingly quotes AmRen leader Jared Taylor asking that "the Republican Party be loyal to its electorate and become the unabashed champion of white interests" and writes, "We need to form a global network to keep America from falling into the hands of anti-white zealots. ... If the United States goes the way of South Africa, whites everywhere will be in danger."
Roodt was also a fellow traveler of Eugene Terreblanche, a white supremacist (and favorite of WND columnist Ilana Mercer) who headed the militant Afrikaner Resistance Movement (AWB) until he was killed by two black farmhands.
Newman also writes:
For an increasingly significant segment of the population, it is becoming clearer that today’s South Africa is simply not sustainable in the long term.
“South Africa is a colonial construct, currently an incompatible, unsustainable mix,” International Afrikaner Society President Hannes Louw told WND.
Louw is reportedly a speaker at this weekend's national conference of the League of the South, the neo-Confederate fringe group that advocates for a second Southern secession and a society dominated by “European Americans.”
Newman also touts how Genocide Watch "raised its alert level on South Africa to stage 6 out of 8 – the planning and preparation phase of the extermination process" without mentioning that the group lowered the level to stage 5 due to developments within the country.
Finally, Newman seems to want to play down the offensive parts of apartheid, describing its end in 1994 as "when the Western establishment and Soviet powers finally succeeded in forcing the anti-communist, white-dominated government to relinquish power."
