The ANC destroyed South Africa

Monday, November 15th, 2021

The African National Congress has destroyed South Africa — and failed to gain a majority of the vote:

The party is, despite its manifest failings, still custodian of the liberator’s mantle among many black South Africans — a recent survey showed that although 60% of ANC voters associated their party with corruption, they would nonetheless vote for it; such is the brand loyalty — but the party’s once hegemonic power is in retreat. The decline over the years is neatly in tandem with the nation’s trajectory towards a failed state. At its peak in 2004, the ANC pulled nearly 70% of the national vote. This week, it could barely pull past 46%.


President Nelson Mandela’s post-liberation administration winged it for five years on the back of public euphoria about the Rainbow Nation and the administrative sinews left by the departed apartheid state.

Then President Thabo Mbeki, his successor, sought to impose a sere, technocratic and welfarist vision on his realm, drawn directly from his experiences in Left-wing UK universities. Problem was that while he taught the newly enfranchised all about their rights as modern citizens, he somehow did not get around to talking about their duties. As a result, a boundless sense of entitlement has become an irreducible, damaging and informing fact of South African life, killing initiative and personal agency. Meanwhile, the technocrats who could give content to Mbeki’s vision were leaving state service in droves: victims of his racial affirmative policies.

After him came Jacob Zuma, former head of intelligence of the ANC’s military in exile, the army that somehow managed to wage a decades-long war during the apartheid years that few South Africans ever noticed. His cronies came into government trailing the odour of the Angolan military camps; the paranoia, secrecy, expedience, manipulation, fear, brutality, corruption and hopelessness.

It is estimated that during his eight-year term, Zuma benignly presided over the embezzlement of between R400 billion and R1.5 trillion of public money (1 GBP = R21) by a coterie of crooks gathered around his presidency, and by others appointed to the State services under the guise of affirmative action and “cadre deployment” (yes, they still speak like that).


Last month, the World Bank ranked South Africa’s once excellent ports at the bottom of the 351 ports surveyed and the Universal Postal Union conveyed the warming news that the South African postal service is now officially worse than Nigeria’s.


For decades now these informal cantons have become ever more self-sufficient: they have private police, hospitals, schools and an army of fixers to mediate between them and a truly appalling bureaucracy. So-called Public-Private Partnerships control large public business and tourist spaces, property developers build public roads, private companies manage water reticulation and major road routes are maintained by private enterprise.

Recent Government policy allows for Independent Power Producers: energy self-sufficiency is now within the grasp of these localised and internally expatriated communities.

    Guy managed to talk his way around the elephant in the room, which is South Africa’s absolutely batshit violent crime. We got used to thinking of South Africa as a more or less first world country, but the level of violence and it’s extent and sadism is terrifying.

    The fact of the matter is we usually think a country’s destiny is written by its leadership that “most people” are “decent” and “hardworking” and that the leadership is what makes things work or not. But if you live in a society where rape is popularly thought to be a cure for AIDS, change in leadership or better policy papers is not going to solve the problem.

  2. Dan Kurt says:

    Crime is an epiphenomenon down stream from the cause which is that South Africa, as was Rhodesia, was taken from the Whites (mean IQ >100) and given to the Blacks (mean IQ <80) and is devolving in real time. Blacks can't organize a two-car funeral.

    “African National Congress has destroyed South Africa.”

    And who is it that funded them and put them in power? We know who. The Jews once again.

    The world is like the movie Cloverfield (I like this movie) where they are trying to save Beth and the massive alien attack beast starts walking towards them and Beth says, “What is that?” and Hud says, “It’s a terrible thing.”

    The big alien is constantly dropping off lots of small vicious aliens all over. When one of the small aliens drops down and tries to attack them Beth says, “What the hell is that?” and Hud replies, “I don’t know, something else, also terrible.”

    Everywhere you look the Jews are doing terrible things. And everything they are involved with is like smaller terrible things dropped off of them. The Jews are a terrible thing and the only way to deal with them is like the terrible monster, get rid of them.

    It was Anglo-Americans, Sam.

  5. VXXC says:

    The ANC also destroyed Baltimore, St. Louis, Camden NJ, Chicago, Detroit, Birmingham and the list goes on…

    Surely this isn’t what Mandela Prince of Light wanted!


    I need to work that into convos “Don’t move to that neighbourhood, the ANC is there”

    “Those are ANC schools aka Bad Schools ;) ”

    How’s Atlanta doing with the ANC dominated government?


  6. Chedolf says:

    VXXC: “It was Anglo-Americans, Sam.”

    George Galloway, Labour MP: “I’m one of the few people on the left in Britain who travelled the length and breadth of apartheid South Africa as an underground agent of the African National Congress led by Nelson Mandela, then in Pollsmoor prison in Cape Town. … And in parentheses let me tell you this, that throughout the entirety of my time underground in South Africa under apartheid, every house I slept in, every dinner I ate, every car I drove in, was provided by Jewish activists of the African National Congress.” (video removed by YouTube)

  7. Isegoria says:

    Apparently someone reposted that Galloway speech.

  8. Hoyos says:

    You can have a low IQ and not be malevolent.

    Also, you have secular Jews,, secular blacks, secular Italians, secular Anglo-Saxons, secular Irishmen, and secular Russians uniting to destroy Christian civilization, but this all translates to Jews being the most important word in that sentence.

    Is it Christian Jews like Lawrence Auster? Is it Lubavitcher street teams raising dough for foreign guerillas? Hasidic rabbis pushing communism? Is the most important word in “secular Hew”, secular or Jew?

  9. Wang Wei Lin says:

    I’ll say it, name one successful black nation.

  10. Hoyos says:

    Wang Wei Lin,

    If you want “great” nations I can’t help you. But as I understand it Kenya is tolerable, and Nigeria is a mess but improving in many places. Jamaica has been doing all right since independence, especially compared to much of Africa. My understanding is Senegal isn’t so bad either. They’re not all hyper-violent hell holes.

  11. Mike in Boston says:

    “My understanding is Senegal isn’t so bad either.”

    Senegal is especially nice if one has some sort of thing for poop. Peace Corps volunteer Karin McQuillan described the place:

    it was, in the words of the Peace Corps doctor, “a fecalized environment.”

    In plain English: s— is everywhere. People defecate on the open ground, and the feces is blown with the dust – onto you, your clothes, your food, the water. He warned us the first day of training: do not even touch water. Human feces carries parasites that bore through your skin and cause organ failure.

  12. Albion says:

    Man I know, white, went to Uganda and was appalled because the car he was in would be stopped by Ugandan cops for no reason and demand money because the driver had a white person in the car.

    They were small demands, admittedly, but the black people travelling with this guy said it wasn’t worth worrying about. Sort of a ‘these things happen’ level of corruption.

    Needless to say, I won’t be booking a vacation there.

  13. Sam J. says:

    Thank you, Chedolf.

    Hoyos says, “Is it Christian Jews like Lawrence Auster? Is it Lubavitcher street teams raising dough for foreign guerillas? Hasidic rabbis pushing communism? Is the most important word in “secular Hew”, secular or Jew?”

    Just another stupid Jew trick. I don’t care which one it is because none of them seem to be doing anything to stop the others from destroying everything. Maybe, I say this with great a total hesitation, there are 20 Jews that are decent and wish to stop the destruction of the US and Europe but if we’re wrong we’ll just start all over again so throw them all out. They have a country Israel they can go there.

    All this stupid gas-lighting, constant lying, all these oh so clever linguistic tricks to derail any sort of honest thought.'s_All_So_Tiresome.png

  14. Sam J. says:

    Thanks for the Galloway speech link, Isegoria.

  15. Hoyos says:

    Mike In Boston,

    Wow, I had no idea it was that bad. My idea was more reasonably safe countries by African standards.

  16. The Scary Black Hundreder says:

    The best black African country would have been Biafra. Don’t know if its demise can be blamed on the Jews.
