Political correctness may be the reason that the murder of white South African farmers barely hits the headlines. One farmer declared "It's politically correct to kill whites these days."
"The silence is deafening" WND stated in its report on the looming genocide of white farmers in the ANC governed South Africa. Few of the murders are reported in South Africa and according to a report by the BNP the "authorities have now officially said that the murder of white farmers is 'no longer a priority'".
Genocide Watch issued a report saying: "Afrikaner farm owners are being murdered at a rate four times the murder rate of other South Africans, including Black farm owners. Their families are also subjected to extremely high crime rates, including murder, rape, mutilation and torture of the victims." They say it is a deliberate government policy in order to terrorize white farmers into leaving their lands.
No official statistics exist on the number of whites murdered, not limited to farmers: a government order prohibits police from reporting murders by race. Rense reports this order is to prevent foreign investors being scared off from investing South Africa.
As Digital Journal reported the policy mirrors that enacted in neighboring Zimbabwe under Mugabe. Dan Roodt of the Pro-Afrikaans Group PRAAG told WND "Too many people in the West, especially liberals and leftists, I think it is seen as normal for blacks to hate whites and oppress them." He compared the government to a criminal organization ruling a sadistic society, saying "We are ruled by sadists who encourage other sadists to go out and rape and kill."
Genocide Watch states the "ANC government has promoted hate speech that constitutes 'incitement to genocide' and "There is direct evidence of SA government incitement to genocide." It notes the ANC denies the charges but admits but is open about its plans to drive whites out of South Africa.
